I believe that people who own houses in Vancouver, or anywhere in
Canada should not pay extra taxes due to a fentanyl crisis.

Has the government actually gone door-to-door to ask people/homeowners
if it's OK to raise taxes for this crisis?

To me it's a way to support the addicts to keep them supplied with
this crisis instead of the government actually looking at the real
problem. The government is supplying the addicts with clean needles
and supplies to keep them going with their addictions and not helping
with the problem. They are saying it's OK to do heroin, cocaine and
meth by supplying them with the needles and help kits.

I say, and others would say, who is worth $200,000 a year? Why don't
the employees of the government take a pay decrease and put that money
towards helping out with this crisis instead of the homeowners which I
say should not be responsible for something that the government wants
to do without asking anybody's opinion.
