Highwater >> That's because people who favour high tax rates exist only in the fever swamp of your imagination. Here in the real world, opposing dangerously low tax rates is not the same thing as favouring high ones.

What evidence do you have that lowering tax rates to the GTA average would be dangerous? The bulk of the taxes we pay go towards employee costs, where the average wage is much higher than the average wage of Hamilton taxpayers. What is wrong with city employees earning a wage that reflects Hamilton taxpayers ability to pay, while not being unduly taxed relative to our neighbours? Are Hamilton taxpayers second class citizens relative to city employees?
