Finance Minister Carole James introduced a new property surtax on homes valued at more than $3 million.

Carrying placards with messages like "Communist Heartless Eby Must Resign" and "Eby/NDP Tax Will Evict Your Grandma", about 300 demonstrators gathered on the lawn outside the Jericho Hill gym.
Speakers had no shortage of complaints.
One woman objected to being removed from the speakers' list at a town hall because she didn't live in Vancouver–Point Grey. But she noted that the tax doesn't only apply to people in Eby's constituency—it affects residents of other areas of the city.
