TORONTO – Mayoral candidate Anthony Perruzza announced an election tour of the city to bring his message of no more increases in property taxes, city fees or TTC fares to every ward.
“Times are tough, and life is not affordable. City hall needs to make it easier for Torontonians to get by. That’s my priority,” said Perruzza. “The people of suburban Toronto also need to be heard in this election. That’s why I will be reaching out to them in their own communities: To make sure that they are listened to and represented.”
Perruzza was at Nathan Phillips square to announce his Affordability Tour. He will be visiting 25 locations across the city, one for each Toronto ward, where he will be talking with people in coffee shops, homes, shopping malls and grocery stores about affordability issues, including property taxes and TTC fares.
“Toronto’s mayor shouldn’t be increasing costs for seniors, families, and the majority of people in the city. We can’t keep raising property taxes, city fees, and TTC fares on them,” said Perruzza.
Under Perruzza’s plan, the city will not raise property taxes, TTC fares or fees for three years.
“We need a better deal for Toronto,” said Perruzza. “We need to keep the $2 billion we give away to the province in property taxes and invest it in building a better city.”
