Who's gonna pay the government to build these and service the interest costs?

Does the money just fall from the sky, or does it have anything to do with taxpayers?
lol, right now who's footing the bill for the increase cost of the homeless here and the increased costs of their healthcare ?
Where's the breakeven point?

How does removing investment in housing by the private sector put people in houses? What's the cost of all the lost wages and taxation from those who work to build the homes?

who's removing the private sector to invest in RE ? unless what you really mean is if there was more income geared social housing being built and available that it would have a direct affect on the market rate rental pricing that's been controlled by private and corporate investors for the longest time might pee them off, well then yeah, they don't want any competition and would prefer to keep things just the way they are

as for losing all the trades people who build homes ? why would that happen ? Developer gets interest free loans, gets government already owned land, all they have to do is build which of course includes a profit and wages for trades - you cut out massive expense and red tape, the only goal is to build basic rentals as quickly as possible

anyways back on topic- I said this idea makes no sense, sure if paying rent on time helps a renter's credit score, great- but this will not get them lower interest rates nor will it be able for them to become a homeowner- the only thing that will is their employment income and being able to come up with a down payment

I'm not sure if you were able to watch that John Stoessel video I posted Rustled, but at the 5:30 mark or so this clown makes an appearance:



He is a Marxist/communist/general idiot who spouts all of the same stupid rhetoric we see spouted here about how "housing is a right" and how "no one should make any money off of housing", which is a recipe for disaster. There is a reason communism failed (many reasons) and that is that their main philosophy is removing any ability or willingness for the members of a society to better themselves, via risking capital or maximum effort. These dummies actually want people to go through all the hell of developing and managing property, and giving them no return for it. They are just supposed to do all of this, out of the goodness of their hearts, I guess. It's such a stupid, doomed to fail idea, and yet these fools know they can get gullible dummies to believe it.

The war on the homeowner/landowner/landlord must end, if we have any hope of solving the housing crisis. We need more incentives to build, not less. We need government to get out of the way. Let this business be solved by those who know how to solve it. In other words, get lost you freaking Marxist scumbags.

Yup! At least he's honest about being a Marxist, instead of playing coy or deluding himself about what he's up to and the outcomes we can expect from what he's demanding.

I come from one of those Eastern European former socialist countries where housing was government owned and provided. However, as governments suck at running business, they all looked nice and shiny when built, but some 20-30 years down the road, they all inevitably turned into slums. Bellow is a picture of how they look nowadays. Please note the European l/p on that vehicle, so it's not some godforsaken African or Asian country.

So YES, this is what the future of housing here would look like if our socialists got it their way. :-X

and yet these fools will never admit how stupid and failed their regressive ideas are, and will keep pushing the failure right to the brink, at which point, they won't be held accountable, and will move on to the next shiny thing they want to destroy. The Left kills everything it touches. This war on landlords must be stopped.

Yet another thing to add to the long laundry list of "crap that got broken that now we have to fix after we are elected" for the Conservatives.

Renter talking to last Landlord available in town

Renter - How much rent per month?

Landlord - 2500.00

Renter - hmmmmmmm I see, well I can see from the history that you have steadily increased the rent over time.

Landlord - your point

Renter - Justin says this lets me negotiate, so 1500.00

Landlord - Next

Exactly! The very moment I heard that "rent history" argument from an applicant, their application would meet the shredder immediately. :biggrin:

Re: Libs/NDP new budget: "Renters' Bill of Rights"

Post by dreamon »

BC Landlord wrote: Mar 27th, 2024, 8:15 pm Just announced for the upcoming federal budget ...
Ottawa will work with provinces and territories to develop a "renters' bill of rights" that would introduce a national standard lease agreement and implement requirements for landlords to disclose an apartment's pricing history to allow tenants to negotiate their rent.
https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/govern ... -1.7157206

Just couldn't believe how many fallacies they were able to cram into a single sentence. First off, tenancies are under provincial jurisdiction, nothing to do with Ottawa. Secondly, who is going to keep the "pricing history" for each individual property (presumably for negotiation purposes), and how? And thirdly, even if such a history was made available to renters, what makes anyone think that landlords would be willing to engage in such negotiations?

What a bunch of BS. Sounds more like Libs/NDPs are in a panic mode to garner more votes from gullible before the election.
100%
Is Trudeau and his policy wonks actually that stupid they think of of this work, let alone the Feds having jurisdiction, or are they that arrogant and narcissistic they know its all BS and think the electorate will like it?

The whole thing wreaks of absolute desperation.

You are right, as most of us know by now

Unfortunately, there is still a contingent out there willing to put their faith and future into believing anything this snake Putzy says. They believe his lies and that suddenly good fortune will land upon them, a free lunch if you will, like dental and housing paid by the taxpayers.
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

Oh yah, and the plan, to fix broken Canada, remember that one. What he meant was that they had zero plan, zero policy, but how easy it was to pass the new woke liberalist movement thing upon the weak was an amazing story for sure.
How do we know for sure that statements of a plan to fix rent, the home market, affordability, etc. is going to fail, because of who is telling us they have a plan.

Take a 2 bedroom in kelowna, say for $500,000 with the min deposit, and show us all.
Now your narrative is about landlords that long ago, worked extra jobs, decided to skip a few vacations, invested and took chances, and to you these people are ones that used excuses to reap double digit returns on tenants dime?
The company that recently purchased 4 units in our building this year, did so with foreign money, and have replaced all tenants with their foreign students, working part time at certain businesses in exchange for rent. Those old rental prices that were capped by the government, and the long term tenants were given there papers and thus you have increased rental rates via new owners.
Amazing the continuous condemnation of hard working, take a chance kinda of people is so drastically needed to support a narrative of a few.
So it's your contention that new investor landlords are entering the market in order to lose money ? Give your head a shake.
