Refund the Vancouver property tax!

Good news everyone! I have been in touch with Councillor Raymond Louie. He was able to have a motion passed at the last Vancouver council meeting, that \"any tax savings incurred in this labour dispute be used to reduce property taxes for City taxpayers in 2008.\" It looks like our money won\'t be wasted! Thank you very much for your support! I will send all of the signatures that this petition has collected so far to Councillor Louie, to ensure that our voices continue to be heard. Please check out the minutes of the council meeting to see how the debate played out.


My name is Trevor Lord and I am a homeowner in the City of Vancouver. I am happy to pay my property taxes when the services are delivered, but I believe that taxpayers should not be required to pay for services that are not being provided while the strike is happening. I think that the City of Vancouver should refund to homeowners and taxpayers the portion of the taxes it collects for these services, for the period of time that these services are not available.

As a contracted employee with the City of Vancouver for 8 years, I am not in any union, did not qualify for strike pay and I am in the process of appealing EI as they also say I'm not eligible.
