Whitehorse Budget Inequity – AGAIN!

Last year WATAG highlighted the great inequity of capital expenditure in Whitehorse.

Unfortunately, the draft budget for 2020-2021 continues this gross inequity.

The graph below shows that 18% of the population will receive a massive 79% of the budget related to recreation.

Why does a footballer, golfer, swimmer or other sport participant requiring specialized infrastructure have such an advantage over the rest of the community who like to walk, ride or simply enjoy our parks for leisure?

WATAG is NOT against sport participation, but this situation is simply not equitable, and it’s a persistent inequity evident for years now.
