Taxed enough

We’d like to call this gathering to our readers’ attention. It’s organised by a relatively new group “Taxed Enough Nova Scotia” [TENS].

We are a non partisan grassroots movement of hard working Nova Scotians looking to make a difference by opposing any tax increase by the current government and working towards keeping more of our hard earned dollars.

Despite flat revenues, our MLAs have dramatically increased spending over the last few years causing a fiscal crisis in Nova Scotia. The proposed government response is to tax its way out the mess it created. But we are Taxed Enough (if not overtaxed).

Just like us government needs to work with what it has and make some hard choices. That is what our MLAs are paid for.

This is a non partisan movement for people from all political backgrounds. We want your opinion, suggestions, your feelings and your research. What has been, or will be, the impact on you as our MLAs continue to mismanage the finances of this great province?

We plan public gatherings to send a clear message to our MLAs, that we are Taxed Enough!

The group is meeting tonight, 6pm at the Tantallon Tim Horton’s ( Hammonds Plains Rd and 103) then on to Shining Waters Marine, 7-9 pm.

We hope Municipal spending and taxation will be discussed as this black hole is sometimes overlooked.
