And yet, you don't care about the affordability of housing.

Yes, this socialist income redistributor does care about affordability of housing. Saying however is is all the fault of government is ludicrous. We want to have livable communities, not Capitalist ant farms to hold workers. We don't want so have government subsidize developers so they can make huge profits and pass on the cost to the taxpayer. Development charges are important that new infrastructure required by the new houses is not downloaded on everyone. I know you love to have the taxpayer subside your business so you can make profits and accumulate the wealth and be the real income redistributor.

You like that 'refutes' word so much. I think it's like your life's ambition to actually "refute" someone. But like a 48 year old virgin with a one inch dick you're condemned to never being able to accomplish your goal due to a lack of equipment.

I've forgotten what it's like to be a virgin. Please refresh our memories.

When I look in the mirror, left is right and right is left.

Aha, that's where he went wrong.

Issues can make us all angry, but we should all behave like adults and not let others who cross the line bring us there too.

Your approach to everything ends in disaster. Unrestrained development comes with huge costs as well

Well i guess there's 2 choices:  1. make developing easier, which would create more units for sale and drive down costs, but would lead to more sprawl & urbanization, or 2. limit development, making units scarcer, driving up costs, but limiting sprawl and other buildings unwanteds.

I think domestic housing speculation is a huge problem.  The thing with speculators is that their greed always makes them destroy themselves via market correction.

You'd be better off asking me what it's like to be smart and win arguments. Those are things I know about and you don't and never will.

I didn't say it was ALL the fault of the government. And spare me your Marxist rhetoric. We're living in a country with one of the richest standards of living in world history.

Why shouldn't it be downloaded onto everyone? When I bought my last house I paid no GST or HST and no development charges. Because it wasn't brand new. I didn't have to contribute a dime to the sewers and roads or other infrastructure beyond my yearly taxes. By heaping this all onto developers they simply pass it on to potential buyers in a lump sum which drastically increases the cost of new housing and pushes it beyond reach for many people.

More brainless anti-business Marxist bullshit.

I gather that it must be frustrating.

For someone who thinks they are smart and wins arguments, you sure don't put much effort into thinking. Resale houses already have the infrastructure in place to support them. They don't need new sewers, water, roads, street lights, snowplows and other equipment to maintain them, support personnel at the town, schools, hospitals, parks,  recreation centers, libraries, etc. there are countless capital costs associated with building new communities. This Marxist believes that the developper should not get a free ride and be subsizided by government.

I haven't been burned so bad since I was of the same fourteen year old mentality as you two apparently possess.

Of course I grew up.

Your argument has no commons sense or logic - much like your ideology. First, the developer doesn't pay them. The home buyer does. It is in the city's interest to expand, to have more housing constructed. In fact, it is a requirement, as long as the population continues to grow. Where is the fairness in requiring everyone who goes into those new houses to foot such heavy development costs for city services? I assure you those who first moved into my last house when it was built in the 1950s didn't pay that. Those who moved into it when I sold it didn't pay either. Costs for city services should be shared.

Ok, then lets levy a quintuple property taxation on all new home buyers. In my last house, our small town had a standpipe that served the population well and had many years of good life left in it. Along comes Joe home builder and puts in hundreds of new houses and suddenly we need a new water tower to have the capacity and pressure to reach those new houses. Why was I stuck subsidizing Joe home builder for something he benefited from and only cost me a fortune in increased property taxes?
