Boffo Bousquet's tax reform 

I am finally getting around to writing about Tim Bousquet and property tax reform. I have followed his writings in The Coast since he started writing about the issue.

Bousquet has managed to do what a journalist is supposed to do! He did not pretend to adhere to any phony standard of journalistic objectivity, he didn't give equal weight to both sides of an issue---no, he stated his case, backed it up with facts and, I think, was almost single-handedly responsible for getting a majority on council to see the proposal for what it was---a piece of regressive shit.

Kudos to Tim and to The Coast for doing an excellent job on this issue. You guys should get awards for the work you did on this. Kudos and thanks.

Incidentally, I probably would have had my taxes lowered, but I'm crazy enough to think that those who have more should pay more! —Edson Castilho, Halifax
