Re: Driven south, July 12.
As I read the article “Driven south,” it seems to me members of our TransLink Mayors’ Council are getting dumb, dumb and dumber. Do they really think they can increase taxes on gasoline and property ad-infinitum without experiencing a backlash?
Like White Rock Coun. Al Campbell pointed out, many residents of White Rock and South Surrey are already going across to Blaine, Wash., for their fill-ups.
Increasing the tax on gasoline here at home will only increase the number of trans-border gasoline patrons.
Whatever happened to wisdom and frugality?
These jokers were elected to govern and administer fiscal prudence, and they are no longer funny.
Stop it, stop it, stop it.
Every time a volcano erupts in Iceland or elsewhere, we lose all the supposed investment benefits the carbon credits were implemented for, except for adding to the provincial coffers.
Is there no end to this tax-and-spend syndrome?
