Re: E-M:/ Bottled-water tax idea flows



    A problem I see with that idea is that anything that increases govrnment's  revenue will be encouraged rather than discouraged by the government.

Several U.S. cities have adopted similar measure

TORONTO - A month after Toronto adopted new vehicle-registration and Bottled-water tax idea flows  land-transfer taxes, Mayor David Miller says the city should study taxing bottled water.

In a letter that council's executive committee will tackle on Monday, the Mayor expresses his support for a request from Bill Saundercook, a Parkdale-High Park councillor who wants the city to explore adding an extra five cents to the cost of water bottled in Ontario, and 10 cents to the cost of water bottled outside the province.
