Letter: Township ‘out of touch’ with taxpayers

Editor: Re: Township tax increase set at nearly four per cent (The Times, Feb. 3).

Is this council out of their collective mind?

The Canadian and B.C. economies are still in shambles and these elected officials are so out of touch with reality that they have the unmitigated gall to raise our property taxes by well over three times the cost of living increase we got on our provincial and federal pensions (1.2 per cent).

Maybe they missed the BC Assessment average increase for Langley Township of around eight per cent?

Or maybe they are so out of touch with their constituents that they think we won’t object?

It’s time to let these elitists know, enough is enough.

I’ve been a Township resident 40 years, and I’m sick and fed up.
