Mayoral candidate Gord Steeves says he would freeze property taxes if elected.

The former city councillor said on Wednesday he would bring back a four-year tax freeze for the entire length of his term.

The city ended its 12-year property tax freeze in 2012.

Revenue to repair the city’s crumbling infrastructure would be raised by selling off city assets, Steeves said.

During his news conference, Steeves took aim at fellow candidate and rival Judy Wasylycia-Leis, saying she would bankrupt Winnipeg families and raise taxes.

Voters go to the polls on October 22.
