The point is that sprawl itself, does not lead to high tax rates. If it did, all the communities I mentioned would already have tax rates similar to Hamilton

All the communities you said are only 40 years old or so, and all of them now have quickly rising tax rates because their infrastructure is turning over and needs expensive maintenance, they didn't charge lifecycle costs when they built it so now the piper needs to be paid. They're also alot closer to Toronto than Hamilton and property gets more expensive the closer you get to T.O. so they can have lower rates but bring in the same money.

Oh what's the use debating with you, you never care about the facts anyway.
