Montreal Road is one of the most important streets in our city. It runs through the heart of a historically diverse, strong-knit community that has long been economically disadvantaged. The Community Improvement Plan is an opportunity to reverse this. It is not meant to give a Porsche dealership a tax break.
Trickle-down economics thinking that supports a $2.9m tax break to a Porsche dealership will not advantage the residents of Vanier or the city at large, nor will it spur the economic activity that small businesses need today.
We call on City Council to vote against the recommendation to provide a tax break to a Porsche dealership.
