It is the principle that matters. They can vote and they don't pay taxes that they are aware of. This is not true for other levels of government where everyone pays PST or GST even if they have no income.

It might also be the case that homeowners and landlords support policies that help keep rents and property values high (for example, zoning restrictions and enforcement of anti-rental bylaws at the municipal level, the BC homeowner grant at the provincial level, and mortgage policies and interest rates at the federal level) without considering the economic cost to their communities and ultimately themselves.
