Development leads to higher taxes, not lower taxes as some politicans would have you believe. Say no to the PPU, a nightmarish plan for urban sprawl.

A study by economist Daniel Muller published in last Monday’s Journal de Montreal shows Greater Montreal’s fastest-growing suburbs have saddled their taxpayers with some of the highest municipal taxes. Once Muller crunched the numbers, he discovered Montreal’s ‘boom’ municipalities on the north and south shores offering affordable housing also had the highest global tax rate.
