LETTER TO THE EDITOR: City plan will lead to increase in home values, property taxes

Don’t expect tears from city hall, says letter writer

To the editor,

Re: Property tax hike hard on residents, Letters, June 8.

Have you not heard the saying, ‘if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen?’ Well, welcome the official community plan of gentrification.

As for tax deferral, that’s the gut punch, the TKO of it all.

One could sell out, buy a nice tent, live on the street until one gets free housing, if you’re healthy enough.

Don’t expect tears from city hall.

Neil Saunders, Nanaimo
