New tax legislation

Many of us on Mudge feel is very important to get ahead of this proposed new tax legislation being considered for the gulf Islands and many other parts of BC. Even if you claim Mudge as your main residence if this comes into law it will be very very difficult to sell your property because most buyers purchase in these island for recreational uses. If they see the tax bill has increased 4 or 5 times the amount it is now they simply will not be able to purchase a vacation property. We are not property flippers on Mudge and we have no real ability to rent out our cabins and cottages on Mudge. If we wait until this government passes this law there will be no going back, we need our voices heard now. We need to rally on this like we have on Green Wharf issues and the Oyster Farming proposals, log booming, along with many other issues that affect us. We can make a difference with our collective voices.
Please write letters to the following address, they need to be inundated with concerns from people on Mudge as to how this will affect us and our ability to continue to enjoy our lifestyle on Mudge.
