An election issue to not discuss

Council conveniently ignores suite owners who are not paying the proper amount of taxes.

During the next civic election, all those fighting for another term on council will conveniently ignore this issue of suite owners who are not paying the proper amount of taxes all those without suites have to pay.

This issue has been brought up by many in both local papers including by myself but nothing happened to make them pay proper school taxes and other services they now enjoy for free.

Even new candidates for council will never mention anything about this issue, which cost us lots of money in taxes.
