Last time I checked my tax bill it was based on the value of my home then the mill rate is applied to that. In 2008 MPAC decided it was worth another 8 grand, my tax bill went up accordingly.

So if you own a half a million dollar home you pay the appropriate taxes at whatever the mill rate is.

Area rating skews this so that a smaller home in Hamilton ends up paying the same taxes as a huge home in Ancaster. Sooner or later area rating will be gone, that's for sure.

Putting it off for a year or two will not change this. Putting this off to a new council was cowardly of Hamilton council in my humble oppinion.

That's Hamilton, get used to it, or do something about it at the ballot box. That's how democracy works.
