Members of the Ottawa Transit Riders will join other community members from groups such as Horizon and Acorn at a rally at City Hall on Wednesday December 6th to battle for a budget that serves ALL residents of the city.
Community services are pleading for more funding even as mayor Sutcliffe has been dipping into emergency reserves to keep property taxes at a level that is unsustainable to maintain even basic services.
Councillors have proposed to raise the transit levy 1% (about $8 per household) in order to freeze transit fares. That seems pretty reasonable to most people.
Come join us if you can.
