Letters to the editor...Resident disgusted by MPAC survey

Dear editor, Recently my husband and I received a letter in the mail, informing us that the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation does not have information on file confirming that we are Canadian citizens. I am totally disgusted, devastated and hurt that they would ever ask us this question. How did the MPAC choose which citizens to ask? I have lived in Esquesing Township, Halton County, and now Halton Hills for more than 59 years. I have voted since being eligible, was born in Canada, am an employed person, worked on the voter's ballots and am a community supporter. Why did letters not go to all residents of Halton Hills, or were the letters only meant to insult a certain few individuals? I contacted the MPAC and they confirmed that we are both Canadian citizens. Our conversation took about five minutes. I also understand that this survey is costing the taxpayers approximately $5 million. What a waste of time and money that could be put to much better use in our community and society. Dianne Taylor, Norval
