Let's Support Ontario Business
Inasmuch as the Provincial Property Tax (sometimes known as the Business Education Tax) is the most inequitable tax in the country, with varying discriminatory tax rates across the Province;
And inasmuch as reducing the tax to the promised level across the Province, as previously scheduled, would delay elimination of the provincial deficit by only 5 weeks;
And inasmuch as a more equitable tax will provide significant relief to the provincial business sector and will assist many small businesses to thrive and contribute to employment:
We, the undersigned, business people and residents who support our local merchants, ask the elected officials of the Province of Ontario to re-instate the tax reduction program in the 2014 budget.
