Letters  

It's all bass ackwards

I recently received my “Declare Now” speculation tax letter – and noticed with amusement how prominently the letter emphasizes that the B.C. government expects over 99 per cent of British Columbians to be exempt from the tax.

So, in a stroke of genius, our government decided to aggravate that same 99 per cent by requiring them to fill out paperwork – in many cases, twice – so that the other one per cent can be billed.

Government is supposed to serve the people, not the other way around.
