CTF gives Sask gov 17,000th school tax petition


At 9 am on February 3, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation gave 5,100 petitions to Saskatchewan MLA Jim Reiter. The petitions requested that the province cover 75 percent of the cost of schools, instead of the current level of 50 percent. The delivery brought the all-time total to 17,000.

On the same day, Reiter submitted a report recommending ways that school property taxes could be reformed and reduced in the province. However, that report won't be released until after the budget March 18. Not a good sign for those waiting year after year for relief from the highest school property taxes in Canada.
