N.B. property tax system must be changed Published Saturday August 28th, 2010

A senior from Moncton owns an older home. Her husband is in a nursing home and she struggles to pay her property taxes, which have jumped by over 50 per cent since 2002.

No significant improvements or upgrades have been made to the house in the last eight years to justify the assessment increase; in fact, this senior citizen says she can no longer afford to repair even a broken front window.
