Honestly, I'm talking about Toronto, where similar attempts to keep our taxes low "for the poor widow in her house she raised her five children in" has resulted in an inability to properly fund our transit system. This is a systemic problem as boomers retire and look for ways to minimize the contributions to a society they are no longer interested in funding.

You are clearly very emotional about this topic but it's NOT about "techbros" "stealing" property from "poor" retirees on a fixed income.




Thanks for clarifying.

It’s clear that you don’t care about the consequences to anyone who owns a home other than the ‘Boomers’ who you want to make pay.

I didn’t say ‘tech bros’. But I did mention tech. I stand by that but I agree that it is narrow - It’s a stand in for anyone who is young and in a position to have high future earnings.

It's clear that you are so emotional about this issue that you can't help but personally attack those who disagree with you. Let's leave it here.


The personal attacks started with you calling me ‘emotional’.

You could have actually answered my point about the people who were adversely affected instead doing that.

Instead you chose the intellectually dishonest route.

Let’s leave it there instead shall we?
