Mayor Calls For Tax Revolt

Campbell River Mayor 
Calls For Tax Revolt
Budget Proposes 
13.6% Tax Increase

"Rise Up The Public 
Is Getting Screwed"

How many more years before Nanaimo is faced with the same tough decisions that Campbell River is now facing? Can you imagine a time when a Mayor is calling for a tax revolt because a city can't keep it's own spending in line, and just keeps on taxing and spending?

Consider the difference between the Campbell River council and our own city council. There, the Mayor and members of council are telling the staff to get their house in order, and figure out how to live within the city's means. Here, on the other hand, we have a Mayor and council who think nothing of adding another $700,000 to the budget, against the advice of the city manager.
