As a professional Accountant, I favour giving municipalities expanded taxing powers. Right now, municipalities have very heavy demands placed upon them with inadequate means of meeting these demands. Powers I advocate for municipalities include:

  1. Authority to place user fees upon the use of municipally owned roads.
  2. Congestion charges such as that used in London (England), Stockholm and other cities.
  3. Giving all Ontario cities the taxing powers of Toronto given by the City of Toronto Act.
  4. A car parking space levy, as currently used in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia.
