    Doesn’t look quite right, even with the new assessments lol . Good idea of course, but “affordable” new housing on expensive land sounds impossible, at least in the volumes it’s needed in the region, unless the province or local govt arranges affordable land to put it on. Then there would be the options of pre-fab houses, trailers, portables etc. for reasonable accommodation, as well as new builds of multiple units. In fact the price of land around the lower Island is forcing more and more people to live stacked up in a concrete cliff face like nesting sea birds, and I’m not convinced this is good for people, specially kids. just saying……
