Stop wasting our tax dollars!

Posted on Tue, Dec 18, 2012 at 1:33 PM

Why did the province outbid a private developer for the Bloomfield school 2 to 1? 15 million dollars for an abandoned school on Agricola? 15 million taxpayer dollars? When the NSHDC submitted a shoddy application scored at 22/50 points and the best private bid had 44/50? Why is the province competing with private business with my tax dollars? So not only are we out 15 million dollars for an abandoned school, we could have had 6 million dollars of non-taxpayer dollars to pay for what was a much better plan? Brilliant. We wonder why we have the highest taxes in the country and no one wants to do business here. —Taxed to Death for Stupid Political Reasons
