"It means property taxes carved a 5.2 per cent chunk out of the average Hamilton household’s income, the third-highest rate in all of Ontario.

By contrast, Burlington’s average residential property taxes were $3,745 last year with an average household income of $111,300 -- a rate of 3.4 per cent, the 15th-lowest proportion of the 81 municipalities surveyed."

Are you willing to even consider the idea that high taxes are keeping people and businesses away from Hamilton? Or is that just another one of my irrelevant correlations?
