Every resident in Haliburton County would see tax increases under the proposed OPP billing model, which could be instated as early as 2015. Elected officials in the four municipalities are working in solidarity to oppose the model, which they say is flawed.
May Day/Call to Action

This page includes information about the billing model and how it will affect local and seasonal residents. It also includes sample letters and sample telephone scripts, to help residents engage before, on, or after May Day.
MPP Laurie Scott makes a statement about #OPPMayDay in parliament on April 30.
