Manitobans Have Said No to New Municipal Tax Powers.

 

The Canadian Federation of Independent Business says Manitobans are opposed to the idea being presented by the Association of Manitoba Municipalities to give municipalities new taxing powers. Their Director of Provincial Affairs Elliot Sims says six in ten Manitobans are against the idea and they are urging municipalities to get their operating expenses under control and are approaching the province.  He says they want the provincial government to know that small business owners and it would appear Manitobans believe that municipalities are getting a significant amount of money already and that they need to spend it better before the provincial government considers giving additional resources to municipalities.

             

Their poll found 62 percent of Manitobans and 81 percent of businesses oppose new tax powers for municipalities.
