    Respecting Property Taxpayers Act

    March 24, 2019

    This week, I rose in the House to introduce my first bill as a Member of Provincial Parliament, the Respecting Property Taxpayers Act. This bill will increase the number of taxpayer representatives on the MPAC Board to ensure the voices of taxpayers are heard. Constituents in my riding pay some of the highest property taxes in the province, and it is only fair that they should have equal representation on the board that assesses their property values.
