According to the Toronto Real Estate Board, the latest polls showing the highest (published) public approval rating for Toronto Mayor Rob Ford in 2012 at 49 per cent as well as high support for the repeal of the Toronto Land Transfer Tax, Ford is doing a good job of representing the public with regard to the Land Transfer Tax.
“Realtors commend Mayor Ford for clearly articulating his commitment to repeal the Toronto Land Transfer Tax and for not wavering from this promise. It is clear that the vest majority of the public agrees with his views on this issue,” said the president of the Toronto Real Estate Board, Richard Silver. “We all want to build a great city, but the public understands that the Land Transfer Tax is stopping Toronto from reaching its full potential.”

“Mayor Ford has been consistent in his commitment to repeal the Toronto Land Transfer Tax and the public’s support of this position has been consistent also,” said the Toronto Real Estate Board’s chief government and public affairs officer, Von Palmer. “The Toronto Land Transfer Tax is holding our city back. Together, we’re building a great city, but we need to get this right. The Toronto land Transfer Tax is no way to build a great city. It makes our city less affordable, less fair and less competitive. We understand the importance of quality services to building a great city, but we believe that those services should be funded fairly and reliably.”
