Hampton talks property taxes

Northerners living in the unorganized area received a shock in the mail when they received their final property tax bills on November 30th. The bills included a due date of December 3rd for the first instalment and December 17th for the second instalment.  Kenora-Rainy River MPP Howard Hampton blames the office in Thunder Bay, which was given the contract to look after all of the bills.  Hampton is asking for the deadline to be extended into the New Year without penalty to homeowners.  The deadline has since been extended to the end of the month.
