Gathering at Nathan Phillips Square

On WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19TH, 4-6PM – ALL MEMBERS OF THE ARTS COMMUNITY AND ANYBODY ELSE are asked to convene at NATHAN PHILLIPS SQUARE to make it clear that artists will not tolerate cuts to our essential services and that we support the Land Transfer tax.
IT’S URGENT: the councillors will be meeting on the 20th to discuss this and we need to show city officials that artists are organized and strong in numbers and that we are horrified by the city’s deteriorating quality of life.
Please show your concern by attending WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19th!

- the land transfer tax is a one-time 2% cost payable only when you choose to buy a house; if implemented it will avert large annual property tax increases payable each and every year
- first time home buyers will receive a rebate for the land transfer tax
- only 6 cents of every tax dollar you pay goes to the city. The remaining 94 cents goes to the provincial and federal governments.
