BC: Take Back City Hall

British Columbia

To the Auditor General for Local Government,

We, the undersigned residents of British Columbia, formally request you review and remove the tax-free status of one-third of salaries for mayor and councillors. This historic anachronism needs to be changed.

Several years ago, the provincial government scrapped the tax-free allowance for its MLAs, and now it's time to change the law and dump this perk for municipal politicians.

Everyone should pay their own way when it comes to taxes. It's neither fair nor just for someone to wriggle out of paying income tax just because they are an elected official.


You have the power to change who influences politics in our country: big unions, big corporations and government-funded special interest groups can be challenged by the contributions of thousands of individual taxpayers who care to make a difference.
