Will DARP Benefit Residential Taxpayers?


The concept of DARP doesn't so much annoy me as it confuses my many attempts (over more than two years) to consider it logically.

I have put the following simple question to myself and to everyone I talk to. And I get only one answer back. I don't want to lead anybody by stating that answer.

Perhaps you'd poll your readers, Don?

The question:

If DARP proceeds, in what way will residential taxpayers benefit? Just name the most important way.

Deane Doucette


An excellent question Deane. As for my take on the subject, I can see zero benefit at great cost to the residential taxpayers of St. Albert. We'll leave the poll here for a couple of days to give all readers a chance to respond.
