Doug Griffiths response to Question 05

Question: What measures would you take to ensure local police are properly resourced to keep streets safe without overburdening local property taxpayers?

A: Once the roles and responsibilities are sorted out between municipalities and the provincial government and funding is addressed accordingly, municipalities will not be forced to rely solely on government grants and a regressive property tax to provide local police services.  It will be up to municipalities to decide on taxes and spending, and they will be accountable to their voters.
