The first ones planned were:
- liquor tax
- tobacco tax
- billbaord tax
- parking tax
- road tolls
- license registration tax
- land transfer tax
- enterainment tax (movies, raptors, jays, argos, opera, theatre, etc.)
The new ones added to the list later are:
- garbage tax
- sidewalk tax (for bars with lineups outside)
- legalize prostition and tax them
- coffe cup tax
- grocery bag tax, and
- styrofoam container tax
