Metro News reports on IMFG paper

Time for more T—new report explores tax revenue options for Toronto in Metro News discusses IMFG Perspectives paper No. 15, by Harry Kitchen and Enid Slack. 

Slack and Kitchen’s new paper is entitled,  New Tax Sources for Canada’s Largest Cities: What Are the Options?.

In the article, Slack acknowledged “nobody likes raising taxes,” but said cities — and those who lead them — may soon have little choice.

“I think people in Toronto want good services. We talk about parks, we talk about transit. We all want good services, and I think we’ll come to the realization that we won’t have them if we don’t raise taxes to pay for them,” she said.
