I had to clean my glasses twice to make sure what I was reading was real.

What a preposterous and abysmal thought. Even though it is preliminary on paper, the very idea is abhorrent.

While pensions in most cases go up by $10 or $15 a year, that council would even think of raising taxes so high smacks of gouging.

It’s high time to begin cutting services so pensioners can still afford to stay in their own homes.

Let’s flood the city with letters and turn up in high numbers at upcoming budget meetings to castigate and throw off this sinister move.
