Like our mayor loves to toot: “Welcome to North Van,” proudly building affordable rental housing while penny pinching low income rental housing. Though this Sundance Airbnb bad behaviour is somewhat last week’s news, I am getting no shortage of people crying foul, up in arms in just how UNAFFORDABLE our city is for far too many and how it is negatively impacting small business when it comes to maintaining staff and the overall social wellness of our city. And it is only going to get much worse! And lest we forget the hundreds of displaced Mussatto Team Slate city renters for the sake of so few willing to pay mortgage rate rentals.
Our infamous Mussatto Team controlled/bloc city council has created over the last three years going on four a zealot, no turning back policy against common sense development while shrinking the wellness of our green spaces. But we do have over $20 million worth of unwarranted BLACK NECKLACE bike lanes that less than 2% of our population will ever use. #UnaffordableHousing #CNVSOL #MortgageRateRentals
