Municipal taxes

In the past 15 years, policies and practices of the Vancouver City council left us with the current housing crisis. In addition to its bias for developers at the expense of the residents, the city took advantage of the housing sale bonanza overseas by charging more than 37% of the cost of new housing in taxes, construction fees, etc. The city is supposed to be offering a service not acting like a private for-profit business monopoly, charging for its services without limits.
