North Van City Millennial Housing Dreams Being Shattered By Our City’s Unaffordable Housing!


When it comes to housing affordability on the North Shore much like in Vancouver City; it is becoming more and more unattainable for our seniors/pensioners, fixed and low income earners and yes our Millennials and generations thereafter.  The reality and future economic and social wellness of our city is in dire straits with not only small business leaving or considering to leave but so are our Millennials having had enough!  Unwilling to pay soaring rents with no return on their investment with up to 4% rental hikes each and every year thereafter…  #time4millennialsMoveOn

Any Millennial family trying to save for one of our ridiculously overpriced $1 to 1.5 plus million priced homes/condos will take them IF they are able to save 20% of their approx. $68K annual income up 20 YEARS compared to Toronto 4.6 yrs. and Edmonton’s one year!.  source: Star Metro Vancouver: Aug. 1/18 & Point2Homes: https://www.point2homes.com/news/canada-real-estate/average-national-home-price-buy-bedrooms.html

It’s becoming more and more apparent why our North Shore culpable density mayors: Mussatto & Walton are unwilling to run for re-election in cities they have fornicated beyond recovery… and thus tarnishing their vainglorious legacies.  What they don’t realize is their legacies have already been condemned for ever and ever amen.


A song that is as relevant today as it was 40 years ago when it comes to peoples’ hopes and dreams being shattered by greed & ignorance…

Mayor Mussatto leaving behind a legacy chalk-full of self-inflicting Falsehoods like:


(My Team Slate Hijackers) “We’ve done a tremendous amount for affordable housing”  i.e. having “displaced – evicted 100’s and 100’s” from our city who can no longer afford my “lyin’ eyes” gentrified housing!  While “turning his back” on our unhealthy 0.3% vacancy rate keeping housing costs out of reach for far too many.  Then in the same NSN March 16th interview has the audacity to assert: “Maybe we can look at housing people as a priority as opposed to housing our cars.”  #MussattoDisconnect

This coming from a seemingly proverbial chronic hypocrite who IF EVER: “walks'” or “peddles” his bike to work.  Choosing instead to WTF: drive the “few blocks to work” behind the wheel of his Lexus SUV on the taxpayers’ dollar – holding down one of the highest car allowances” in the lower mainland!  #DMWlegacy

And lest we forget under mayor Mussatto’s legacy reign of density terror how the livability of our city has DROPPED to #72 – “Best Places to Live in Canada 2017.”  Noteworthy: Our fellow North Shore cities are significantly ranked higherDNVC ranked 20th and West Vancouver in 25th place!   #cnvSOL  http://www.moneysense.ca/canadas-best-places-to-live-create-your-own-ranking/
