Does the spending of our tax dollars by the city bug anybody else??? There are many projects (past and present) that our city seems to have no issue dumping large amounts of tax payers money into businesses that essentially are or should be self sustaining. Why is it okay for our city to squirrell away our money and spend it on what they see fit when it really has nothing to do with the city itself. Are they giving any other businesses in town $650,000. The last time I checked universities received funding from much larger governments, tuition etc. Maybe this money could have been better spent? Like the $400 000 our city decided to spend on tearing down the paramount theatre, or the building of an arts center (which of course had to be canadas tallest concrete tilt up building at the time) with no referndum. Is anybody else getting sick of seeing mayors and councellors personal desires and dreams come to life at the tax payers expense.
