Your Nanaimo Tax and Spend Council

Hang on to your wallet

Nanaimo taxpayers wanted change last civic election (for good cause) and have given the city purse to a council that only exists to spend. They will justify every increase while never reflecting on the true cause of the never ending tax increases. The true cause you ask?? Well in my humble opinion the fact that CUPE 401 has controlled city hall for decades and now has a union friendly council in place there will be no limit on the creative ways they will invent to spend tax dollars. Bureaucracies serve a purpose in the beginning, but sooner or later become a malignant, ever-increasing growth that sucks the life out of it's host.

Couple that with an inflated sense of their purpose as a city councillor (climate crisis, homelessness, drug addiction, social planning etc. etc.) when their real mandate is to supply taxpayers with services for their tax dollars. Taking on problems which should be dealt with by senior governments (Island Health keeps getting a pass on their role with drug addiction, Social services needs to be dealing with inadequate housing funding etc. etc.). This council needs to be providing the citizens of Nanaimo with water, sewer, roads and public safety at a price the average taxpayer can AFFORD without trying to fund all these grandiose programs that may soothe their egos, all the while going well beyond their pay grade and skill sets.
