Thats why they are doing it now, in 2015 its old news. If it does go to what it is intended for then fine. It will create jobs and help the province in the long run. Look what the "tax freeze" did to our city, now it will cost way more because it is so run down.
The Cons were jumping up and down about expanding the floodway, looks like money well spent now.
In the end the governments at every level want all our spare change, our right wing mayor/council has sure been dipping deep. Raising taxes and creating new fees and raising the costs of existing ones.
My advice. Don't worry, be happy!
