Force them to live on in agony to keep you happy, that's what I say!
It's not about keeping me happy, it's about not acting like a nazi, and killing people who in many cases, are going through a temporary difficult time.  It's abhorrent.

It's also only happening in your far-right dystopian alternate reality.

A person was allowed to die because she couldn't find public housing.  For that to happen in Canada is abhorrent.  The fact that you defend it doesn't really surprise me.

Yesterday.
https://www.canada.ca/en/department-finance/news/2023/03/an-affordable-place-to-call-home.html

The National Housing Strategy was brought in during 2017, where since the housing affordability crisis has significantly worsened, so clearly you were incorrect, and the program sucks.

Besides 4 billion to indigenous housing there were no significant new initiatives announced in this budget.  The virtually all of the initiatives on that page are either things already announced in previously or things the Liberals have done over the past year that for some reason they're highlighting on this budget because they don't have anything to announce this fiscal.

But they are planning to bring in almost half a million new immigrants this year.  Where they'll live nobody knows nor do they care.  But they do want you to consider killing yourself and your pre-born children.

The feds have been dogshit on housing but for real, nobody with the power to fix it actually cares about the housing crisis. PeePee is a parasitic landlord, you think he wants to increase the supply of housing? You think the Boomers who make up the voting population and who have seen the paper value of their home skyrocket in recent years would vote for anyone at any level of government who would threaten their gains?

I don't defend it. I say you're stupid and a liar.

Omg the boom-booms fault again!  The boom-booms don't even make up a lopsided % of the vote anymore, and aren't even as big a group as millennials population wise, which might explain why our governments are increasingly retarded.

Cities get property taxes based on the value.  They don't want to change it.  Provinces don't seem to give a hoot.

The feds probably think its more efficient for the environment if 8 people live in the same house.  In the new "15 second cities" you'll be a 15 second walk away from your entire extended family, depending on what floor they live on.

No it's not.  Nazi is telling people what to do, like you are doing.

MAID is voluntary.  You have to ask for it.  Very un-Nazi like.

According to the data you posted there's about 11 million boomers 7.5 million Xers, and 10 million millennials. Also more germane to this is the fact that 75 per cent of Boomers own their own home, and 17 per cent more than one property, compared to 57 per cent of millennials.

It was because she couldn't find suitable housing, not public housing.  She was suffering from extreme chemical sensitivity that required a certain kind of housing, free from the kind of pollutants the rest of us deal with every day.

I agree the government should provide housing for these people, even if it means raising taxes. 

Regulations should be tightened to decrease emissions.  Things like perfumed laundry soap and dryer sheets, products like Febreeze, perfumed personal hygene products or smoking indoors, even in your own home, should be banned in all apartment complexes.

But until that happens, their choices should be respected.  There are more people with this condition making enquiries about MAID, now that they know it is an option.

You finally realized you were manipulated to think 15-minute cities are a big conspiracy, but want to save face by criticizing the idea because it's...a thing?

I have no idea how you sliced up the ages but the only way you got more boomers is 1. by including more age groups than millennials and 2. including a larger age range for boomers than is traditionally defined in order to to manipulate the data to suit your argument.

People aged 20-40 are a bigger population than people aged 60-80.  The boom-booms aren't a big voting block anymore.  Doesn't matter if they own homes if they aren't some large voting block to be pandered to anymore.  If politicians don't want to upset homeowning voters in general then that will include all voting ages...plus themselves.

Gen X and millennials run the country now politically, not doing such a great job.  See, there's lots of blame to go around for your age-hatred.

Also, in my experience developers have a lot of influence in municipal politics, and I assume provincial to a degree as well

Nope, I just used the numbers you provided which admittedly don't match exactly onto the traditional generational divides, but as a raw number it's fine.

Yes that's what my numbers show.

My argument is that they wield a disproportionate influence on the political process precisely because they have economic power (in the form of physical assets)

How does home ownership affect a voters political power?  You can't donate shares of your house to politicians.  You only have "economic power" from home ownership when you sell your home and downsize to a condo or retirement home or whatnot.

More likely the pieces of sh!t politicians don't want their own homes to lose value and are in bed with developers and banks.
