Why are you picking on homeowners who's property values have increased.

Are there any homeowners in BC whose property values *haven't* increased?   I suppose there might be towns where the sawmill or mine closed down and housing prices dropped. I'm sure those are vastly in the minority.  What I'm getting at is that home owners in BC, in the overwhelming majority, have done very well in the past 15 years or more. I've only owned my home for 5 years, and I've already done very well from it. Home owners are by and large a very fortunate group, and we don't actually need subsidies, especially from people who are less privileged than us.

Let's face it, everyone who gets the homeowner grant is being subsidized by those who don't own their own homes. If you really want to be fair, the grant should be abolished, period.

Yes, that's what I'm getting at.
