Terry Cooke wins my nod for commentary of the week:
My property taxes this year will be about $5,500. That's not a typo and no, we don't live at Dundurn Castle. All this time, I've been paying my property taxes on time. I must be an idiot. That stops now.
My three kids have voted unanimously to use the money to go to Disneyworld. But I think we need to spend it closer to home and take full advantage of the city's innovative tax policies.
My next instalment is due this week, and I intend to sit on my wallet until the City of Hamilton offers me a sweetener. They have these great incentives that we have been reading about in the newspapers, all intended to stimulate local construction activity, and we haven't capitalized on them.
It just gets better from there.
