Living in BC is Taxing.

The Islands Trust has been expanding their mandate with associated tax increases business and residents pay. Have a look at the substantial budget growth, an increase of $1.5M (19%) over the 4 years of the current Trust Council. Taking on all the new regulatory powers inherent in the New Draft Policy Statement will make living here even more costly.
