    why is the Government so blinkin teif?

    Miller Ponders Tax On Bottled Water
    Wednesday November 21, 2007
    CityNews.ca Staff
    As Torontonians get used to the idea of paying the new land transfer tax and vehicle registration fee voted in by city council, there's word of a possible new levy: on bottled water.

    According to a published report Mayor David Miller is supportive of a proposal by Parkdale-High Park Councillor Bill Saundercook to add a five cent price hike to water bottled in Ontario and a 10 cent boost to water bottled elsewhere.

    The councillor pitched the idea last month ahead of a vote on the other two controversial taxes. In a letter written earlier this month Miller said he was for the idea. But it's far from becoming reality as some councillors including the city's budget chief Shelley Carroll say it would be costly and impractical to bring in.

    The City of Toronto Act gives the municipality broad taxing powers but it can't tax manufacturers directly - meaning individual store owners would have to collect the tax themselves, a proposal they're not happy about.

    If Toronto does end up popping a tax on bottled water it would follow in the footsteps of Chicago, which last week slipped a five-cent tax on the item.

    Some North American cities, including Los Angeles, San Francisco and Salt Lake City, have asked municipal employees to stop buying bottled water, and in Ontario the town of Blue Mountains near Collingwood brought in a ban on the items in city buildings for environmental reasons.

    At this point the discussion on a Toronto bottled water levy is still in the discussion stage and may not go any further than that.

    Toronto homeowners will already be paying more for tap water next year as rates are set to rise nine per cent.

    i swear government is trying to squeeze money out of us where ever they can damn.

    hope they invest that extra money in the environment and recycling efforts - 'cause the rise in bottled water consumption over the last 15 years or so is a major problem.
