‘LIBERAL’ CORPORATIST’S SHAMEFUL VOTING ON BUSINESS PROPERTY TAX BREAKS: Chris Coleman, Victoria City Councillor, ‘argued that businesses should be given even more of a break.’

  Contrary to a report in the Victoria News last week, Bill Cleverley reports today in the monopoly daily that two Victoria City Councillors voted against raising residential property taxes by seven per cent, while only raising those for commercial properties by 1%.

  Chris Coleman voted against the motion, saying that he was opposed because it did not give enough of a break to Victoria businesses!
  To his credit, Victoria City Councillor Philippe Lucas was the lone one to oppose the steep tax hike for residential taxpayers, saying “‘I just don’t see how families in this municipality can afford a seven per cent tax increase.
 ” ‘I’m incredibly concerned that our council has just imposed it.’
  “Lucas noted that Victoria has the lowest median income in the entire region and the highest rate of childhood poverty in B. C.,” according to Mr. Cleverley’s report (a link to which will be found in the comments).
  
  One recalls that Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin promised last year that inflating costs for the new replacement of the neglected heritage Johnson Street Bridge would somehow not impact our already inflated residential property taxes, and Mr. Lucas sang eagerly with the socialist mayor for borrowing $49,000,000, as did all the Councillors in the Mayor’s chorus of stimulus spenders, with the sole dissenting vote coming from veteran Victoria City Councillor Geoffrey Young.
  Nevertheless, I do appreciate that the last remaining Green Party member of the Victoria City Council has not completely succumbed to inflationary and unjust corporatist taxation policies as they impact the majority of Victoria’s beleaguered residential property taxpayers, as apparently has happened to all of the rest of the Globalist Victoria City Council, including Mr. Coleman and, sadly, Mr. Young.
