Did CANCEA find that the current housing crisis was caused by:
- Land use planning policy induced supply restrictions;
- High taxes on housing (development charges, HST, municipal land transfer tax, application review fees); or,
- Onerous regulations?
Nope. The cause of the current housing crisis is (drum roll please): "bedroom hoarding grannies."
I shit you not.
Now, this would be hilarious if it wasn't so dangerous, i.e., if government "believes" that "bedroom hoarding grannies" are the problem, government will justify imposing policies designed to force seniors out of their homes.
Let that sink in.
