The Property Tax Myth of Campaign 2014

The leading candidates promise they can keep property taxes around or below inflation. Here's why that promise is either irresponsible or the product of wishful thinking.

On the mayoral campaign trail, it has become an accepted truism through sheer force of repetition: Toronto cannot afford a property tax increase beyond the rate of inflation.

But this has more to do with addressing what (some) people want to hear rather than reflecting the true state of Toronto’s financial needs. The reality is, it’s difficult to imagine any of the three leading mayoral candidates can keep their property tax promises while also making responsible financial and investment decisions for the City’s future.

Here’s why that’s the case.

Vandalist: Happy Days

This time they're here to stay.

FIELD NOTES: It’s easy to get bogged down by the constant bombardment of bad news. Sometimes it seems as if we can’t go five minutes without hearing of some new tragedy. In times like these it’s important to step back and remember that although the world can be cruel and unfair, there is still much to be happy about. Good things happen all around us—they just don’t often make the headlines.

Once a week, Vandalist features some of the most interesting street art and graffiti from around Toronto. Find something great? Email vandalist@torontoist.com.

Happy birthday, Drake! Yes, the holiday that will (hopefully) one day surpass Christmas in Canada has arrived: our own Aubrey Graham is one year older. It hardly seems worthwhile, but there's also other news to look at today: Doug Ford denies calling a reporter a bitch, parents in East York protest the conditions of their kids' school, and there's no armed security in Queen's Park.

Sometimes, you just have to get right to it. In the news: Parliament will sit today in the wake of the Ottawa shootings, Bill Blair says there is no credible threat of a similar attack in Toronto, Queen’s Park holds a moment of silence to honour the fallen soldier in Ottawa, Doug Ford shares his views on what needs to be done to keep the nation safe, and the identity of the killed soldier is confirmed to be Corporal Nathan Cirillo.

Apparently, a Niagara-on-the-Lake hotel has the greatest restroom in Canada. The porcelain thrones at Shaw Club Hotel and Spa are described as a convergence of “style and radiance.” Given that a public lavatory in Toronto that offers a convergence of functioning plumbing and tolerable odour is a pretty big coup, what would rate as our fine city’s top public potty? In the news: Malala Yousafzai will be made an honorary Canadian citizen, the TDSB has a $3-billion repair backlog, the El Mocambo sign goes up for auction, and Doug Ford meets Michael Dunbar Jr.
