Continued tax hikes no longer acceptable

To the Editor,

Re: RDN proposed budget a 6.7-per cent increase, Jan. 24.

The gall of the people who proposed this budget would appear to have no bounds. The cost of living would appear to be at just over two per cent, and they want three times that.

It would appear they think taxpayers have continuous growth in income.

Most people I know are having trouble coping with the price rises of everything, with little or no rise of pension, or income.

I believe that we are over-governed, and perhaps it is time to disolve this form of regional government, and give the responsibility back to the provincial government where it logically belongs.
