London city council to purchase natural resources to stimulate London's economy

Statistics Canada has released a report on the average median family incomes across the country - compared to larger cities, London is ranked 10th and as is to be expected, resource rich towns and cities rank near the top. I'd like to see a report factoring in the munipical taxes that each of these families pay in their respective towns.

Here's Gord Hume's reaction, from LFpress:

"That's a whole different universe," London Controller Gord Hume said of the surging income levels out West. "Alberta is vomiting in money. It's unbelievable."
And London is vomiting diversity, public employees and high property taxes.
