The incumbent for Rideau-Vanier wants to stick to a two-per-cent property tax increase for the next term of council, but would argue for a one-per-cent levy targeted to a couple of key issues.

Mathieu Fleury floated the plan at a Rideau-Vanier debate Thursday night at the Sandy Hill Community Centre.

About 150 people gathered to hear Fleury and challengers Thierry Harris and Matt Lowe discuss issues ranging from student rooming houses and affordable housing to transit and snow clearing for sidewalks and cycling lanes.
