"Meanwhile, Vancouver’s housing crisis went from bad to extreme. In 2015, a frenzy of foreign capital and local speculation caused the average detached home price to grow $420,000 in five months, more than the increase in prices from 1981 to 2005. “It is really, really striking what’s happened recently,” University of British Columbia economist Thomas Davidoff said at the time. By 2017, the average detached home price was well above $2.6 million. Metro Vancouver’s homeless population topped 3,600 people. Over 1,420 people died of drug overdoses, many caused by fentanyl."
Where does all the fentanyl come from?!
Our civic election is in Oct, you bet there will be a revolution! No more empty houses kept as bank accounts. No more rental gauging. No more free for all for developers and foreigners. Local get first dips on new housing. The start of the road to recovery. Best to join the rest of Canadian society and become part of civilized society with morals and ethics.
