Findlater, Liberals united against tax

Courier staff

Jan 21, 2019

Former West Kelowna mayor Doug Findlater is helping the BC Liberals make their case against the speculation tax.

In a news release Friday criticizing Green party Leader Andrew Weaver for his apparent flip-flop on the tax, the Liberal caucus quotes Findlater, now a city councillor, who has been an outspoken opponent of the tax.

“It appears that very little thought was given to implementing the speculation tax and the government is making up tax policy on the fly," he is quoted as saying.

In the release, the Liberals criticize Weaver for speaking out against the tax in the Nanaimo byelection campaign even though he supported the tax in a legislature vote, after the NDP government accepted some of his proposed revisions.

The press release also features Langford Mayor Stew Young criticizing the government for the paperwork homeowners must fill out to exempt themselves from the tax.
