Equal Taxation in Provincial Parks
Whereas large residences are being built in provincial parks; and
Whereas provincial park land is leased from the province and not subject to property or education taxes; and
Whereas residents of provincial parks use the same educational system as other Saskatchewan residents and take advantage of services within surrounding urban municipalities without paying their fair share;
Therefore be it resolved that the SUMA advocate with the provincial government to ensure that provincial park residents are paying their fair share of taxes for the services they are using.
While the Minister of Finance Kevin Doherty sent a letter in response to resolutions on taxation, it does not include a direct response to this resolution.
