No Service, No Tax: HRM Residents Demand Their Money Back! sign now

HRM residents pay 0.156% of the value of their property on their property tax bill each year in the form of an area tax for Metro Transit. Last year, the HRM collected 34 Million dollars to fund Metro Transit, and this year the HRM expects to collect over 35 Million dollars for the same purpose. In other words, we are paying almost 3 Million dollars per month for a service we are not getting.

We, the residents of HRM, demand that one twelfth of the are tax be credited back to us for each month that Metro Transit is not running.

There is no reason that the strike should be prolonged unnecessarily. We should not be responsible for the failings of management. Almost 100,000 people are affected by the lack of service, and their voice is not being heard. Students are being forced to drop out of school and people are losing their jobs. We feel that the only way our collective voices will be heard is if we unite and demand our money back. Furthermore, we are tired of all of the in-camera sessions and secret negotiations. It's our money, and our service, and we want some transparency and accountability.

No Service, No Tax, One Voice!
