Protect Toronto's Patios!

It feels more and more like our city is being taken from us, sold off to the highest bidder. It started with real estate and now it's happening to our retail spots, bars and restaurants.

A 350-400% increase to the patio tax would mean it would cost bar and restaurant owners around $10,000 a year to operate a patio, making it even more difficult for hard working restauranteurs to get by.

It also means food and drink prices are going to sky rocket and many of our favourite summer spots will be forced to close. 

We can't let this happen! Let's keep our city ours and shoot down this ludicrous proposal!
