The Mayor says if re-elected, he won't raise your property taxes by more than the rate of inflation.

In fact, Rob Ford says he can commit to even less than that.

He made the promise at his Etobicoke campaign office on Tuesday.

Ford says he doesn't anticipate a property tax hike as high as 2.5 per cent - the average inflation rate. He says he couldn't give an exact number but muses it could be a 1.5 per cent yearly increase.

He says he can still build a Scarborough subway and expand the TTC underground without a high tax increase, stressing all three levels of government would need to come to the table for funding.
