Breaking News: New Toronto taxes vote delayed

I just heard from our guy in Ontario, Kevin Gaudet, who has been enduring the endless debate at City Hall, that Toronto City Council has narrowly voted (23-22) in favour of delaying the vote on the new vehicle registration tax ($60 per car per year) and the new land-transfer tax (0.5 - 2% of the sale price of the home/property) until after the provincial election in Ontario.

The new vote date is October 22.

This is most certainly a victory for those opposed to the taxes, as tax-loving Mayor David "my tax is this big" Miller (above) wanted this pushed through today.

Good work Kevin, et al.
