Did anyone catch the possible 12% tax increase in the Campbell River Mirror?

An article in the recent Campbell River Mirror outlined that there are alot of people who do not pay their bus fare in town.  Certainly, there are alot of people who cannot afford the fare, but surely others are only taking advantage.  That could cost homeowners an increase of almost 1% on taxes on a possible 12% increase! Wages and pensions have not increased anywhere near that amount.  How much a month will you have to put away for property taxes?  Will a substantial increase force you to sell your home, cut down on grocery expenses yet again.  Let us know your thoughts.  Check out the article in the Campbell River Mirror.

Remember the days when everyone had a family Doctor?

It is not hard to remember those days as they are in the not so distant past.  How hard should it be to recruit physicians to this beautiful place.  Ocean to Alpine, Salmon Capital etc, used to be enough.  Fish, golf and ski in the same day....Can't believe the local doctors have had to approach City Council for help!  Are the taxes in BC too high? Let us know your thoughts, concerns and ideas to solve this problem.  Read the thoughts of our local physicians to help with recruitment in the Campbell River Mirror.
