Protesters expected as Eby looks to sell proposed school tax in Vancouver

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – BC’s Attorney General is expected to face a number of protesters, as he attends a townhall event for the West Point Grey Resident’s Association this afternoon.

David Eby will be trying to sell the NDP’s proposed school tax, which will see a 0.2 per cent surtax put on the assessed value of homes worth more than $3-million.

The idea is to have that money help what Eby calls the ‘chronically underfunded’ school system in this province. However, a post on his constituency blog says that money has to come from somewhere.

He points out, this can be deferred by seniors, and families with children living at home.
