AND, just minutes after my last post about the impotence of Horgan and the NDP government, this came out:

Investing in rentals
The Canadian Press - Apr 18, 2018 / 2:05 pm | Story: 224057

Photo: Contributed
British Columbia's government is investing $1.9 billion over the next 10 years to help build 14,000 affordable homes for renters.

Premier John Horgan says fixing the housing crisis in the province isn't just about ownership, but making sure that those who rent can find and afford homes where they can have a future.

The new rental homes will be built through partnerships with municipalities, non-profit group and housing co-operatives.

Housing Minister Selina Robinson says people are struggling because of the housing crisis and the fund will help give people a place to call their own.

Each project built under the fund must provide at least 30 per cent of the units for those with moderate incomes, 20 per cent for low incomes and half of the homes must be for a mixture of low- to moderate-income households.

The government says the projects will be prioritized based on the impact they would have in reducing the communities affordable rental housing needs

You will have to go find what I just said about Horgan on another thread.

they did matter. the liberals didnt ensure an outright victory. and then something beautiful happened. the constitution of british columbia - and the mechanisms that were set forth over 100 years ago - were able to be facilitated - as they were dreamed up so long ago. no matter how much you whine and snivel - the bc ndp and green party did absolutely nothing at all wrong. in fact by enacting the measures they did everything "right". when you do something right that is far from brainless. if they werent smart and didnt do things right - they wouldnt be in power right now. so - they were indeed actually "elected" and they seized power. which means they "won" and that is the opposite of being a loser. no one besides you and your cronies (including the devils advocates/red herring signalers/fence sitters/wannabe MBA's) care that you are not happy. but when you say the ndp is "unelected" that is a step too far in my opinion. they were elected fair and square and now have power. just have some dignity and deal with it like we had to for 16 long years.

All I know about the NDP, they like to spend lots of money, but don't know how to make money.
Again our province is broke!!!!!!
Can we not have a person in power for B.C. who can see us as an asset!!!
Not a "ummm, have to take the green party, cus if I don't I cannot get the power""
That's why we had the Conservative Party!
What the heck happened to them!!!!!

The difference between the Liberals and NDP is that the Liberals paid millions to get the job done to benefit the people of this Province while the NDP would spend the same amount of money on useless studies, trying to block the project and then end up building it anyways at an even higher cost.

so there is waste on the back end with yours and waste on the front end with mine. and then you have the gall to justify that your waste is somehow more justified? there has always been - and always will be waste in government. if you dont think so then it illustrates a high level of naivety. i voted more for policies and platforms. i agreed more with the ndp - and for a change my vote didnt go to waste. suck it up ndp haters. and vote next election.

I just offered a suggestion. You appear to be very worried the NDP is going to ruin you financially.

What everyone should be worried about is the NDP ruining BC financially. And there is good reason for it.

Yes you've stated everyone is going to be on welfare. The economy in BC is pretty strong so I'm not sure what you're worried about unless you think there are leftists in your closet who are going to steal your job.
