As Isitt pushes his City of Victoria-made affordable housing solution, the CEO of BC Housing has stated that government can't afford to build its way out of BC's housing crunch.
Instead what we have is obstruction at the municipal level and a desire to paint the private development sector as the cause of housing problems. The fact that our municipal leaders have got this point so embarrassingly wrong is a perfect example of ideology leading the charge in lieu of facts and pragmatism.
Its not governments responsibility to build endless affordable housing and frankly I am not sure how a private developer can fix the problem either. The reality is we need a changing mindset where you might not be able to afford to live alone here and roommates will become the norm. If you don't like it then don't live here, try Saskatoon but dress warm. That is the cold hearted truth because I can't think of a single reasonable solution
