Taxing development

The last thing Winnipeg needs is another tax, and Mayor Sam Katz would be wise to recognize that sooner rather than later.

Someone at City Hall has cooked up yet another way to gouge taxpayers that want to build new homes in Winnipeg - charging "impost fees" to the developers (who will then put the cost onto the consumer) of a new suburb in Winnipeg, Waverley West. These fees, which are really just another tax, can be as high as $6500/lot.

Outrageous?
