About two weeks ago, I got my assessment for property taxes. I’ve never had to pay property taxes until this month. Lucky for me, we have this “grant” program here in B.C. that knocked my taxes down a few hundred dollars. Still, it’s a lot of money for something I never used to think about. To make it worthwhile, I better go to the local community centre, take grade five at the closest elementary school, and get a tour of city hall.
