Here?s a look at the flip-flop logic used by council right-wingers before and after the deferral of the land transfer tax.
BEFORE Miller has wasted too much time pushing for provincial uploading. It's a distraction. He should be pushing for service cuts.
AFTER Why has the mayor callously cut community services instead of pushing the province for uploading? - Case Ootes
BEFORE Under the Lastman administration, funding from reserves was a sad necessity.
AFTER Under the Miller administration, funding from reserves is a sign of mismanagement. - Karen Stintz, latter comment
BEFORE How dare Miller disrespect council opponents by pushing for taxes without making a proper case for those taxes!
AFTER How dare Miller disrespect council opponents through a website (www.fairtaxes.ca) as part of a public campaign to make a case for those taxes! - Michael Del Grande
BEFORE The mayor shouldn't make any budget decisions without consulting council.
AFTER The mayor should have reopened community centres, putting parks half a million over budget, without consulting council. - Denzil Minnan-Wong
