Housing crystal ball stormy

Kelowna’s HM Commercial Group held its annual “crystal ball” gathering, Wednesday.

And when provincial Liberal leader Andrew Wilkinson gazed into the orb, he saw nothing short of a catastrophe when it comes to affordable housing in the province if the NDP are still in charge.

“There’s an approach to housing that the NDP take that means you penalize your enemies, you restrict demand, and you say, ‘We’re gonna to take care of our friends,’” Wilkinson said following his address at The Laurel Packinghouse.

“Government should serve everybody, with no friends or enemies, and we need to build more housing, which is not what the NDP are doing.

“There are going to have to be incentives for people to build lower-end rental housing, for people to build full-scale rental housing all over B.C., because there’s a major crunch there where people can’t find a place to live or when they want to move to a nicer place they can’t move. And that leads to a very restricted way of life and very frustrated people.”
