Even more peace, earth, and justice type events.  If your event isn't listed here, don't worry, there's a special pre-election issue in the works.

The CRD and the housing trust fund

There's been some discussion, and voting, about affordable housing in the CRD, the attached story outlines who voted in which way. A trust fund is one idea, but it puts the burden back on the hard working middle class. Legislating developers to build a percentage of affordable housing with each new project is another option being discussed. The citizenry have lots of good ideas - collect more taxes from those who own, but don't live here is another idea, or why not implement a rent freeze within buildings once the mortgage is paid.

If people appreciate the importance of housing, and develop a philosophy of inclusion - recognizing that the right of all to decent shelter exceeds the right of owners and developers to grow ever richer - then many of our social ills (including drug addiction and theft) will be on the road towards greater personal and community health.
