For the life of me, I've never understood a City or Municipalities profound interest in secondary suites?
I've also never understood the mile high hurdles most cities in Canada put in front of somebody wanting to have a secondary suite in their existing home.
Is it to prevent the "hot plate" scenario whereby the landlords idea of a kitchen is instantly a fire hazard?
Or is it to maintain an iron grip on potential, untapped tax opportunities?
Or is it to drain 5 to 10 thousand dollars out of potential developers for the wide assortment of expensive permits required?
The political attention paid to secondary suites seems terribly out of pace with what they actually wind up as ... which is usually a couple of rooms in the basement of somebodies house.
Must be something I'm not getting.
