    Honestly we need the population to continue economic growth. But we need housing services like we had in Ontario in the 90s.

      Technically speaking we need a lot more infrastructure as whole. Housing being the most dire one.

      I’m actually starting to feel like Trudeau actually thought a ahead on this one politically and really setting up Pierre to fail.

          Choosing to stay stupid when given the option to learn is not plausible deniability. It’s just staying stupid, and PP will get called out on it if/when he uses it as an excuse.

            Called out in parliament, maybe, but not by anyone inclined to vote for him. I’ve never met a Conservative voter who thinks critically when it comes to voting (and I’ve met several with advanced degrees). Policy and performance don’t matter; they vote for ‘their team’ and based on beliefs - not evidence - that ‘conservatives are good with money’ and similar swill. It’s more like being a sports fan or a religious devotee than a rational elector, ime

              You’re right, his base won’t call him out. But we’ve got some of the best journalists in the world here in Canada and I guarantee you every one of them will hold his feet to the fire on that topic.

                I hope you’re right! I have very little confidence in mainstream news media these day to do anything besides serve the interests of corporations and the wealthy. Recent examples: (coverage of) Colonialist genocide in Palestine, carbon ‘tax’, recent capital gains tax. This issue is compounded by how few Canadians read non-mainstream news. I know you do, but I think we’re clearly outliers since we’re on Lemmy

                  You should read independent sources then. The Winnipeg Free Press, the Breach, CanadaLand, etc etc are all good.

                  Here’s a link to a listing of Canadian independent news sources.

        this and immigration, a few weeks ago announcing that Palestinians would be allowed to easily immigrate to Canada, the whole India thing, etc yeah and especially after lastnight Trudeau knows his days are numbered so he and the liberals are setting up their escape plan and leaving behind a bunch of booby traps for Pierre to unsuccessfully disarm THEN reclaim power.

        Meanwhile the rest of Canada continues to suffer while these clowns circlejerk each other off in the house of commons.

      We also need to incentivize people to move to somewhere other than the GTA

    Boy, imagine if we’d planned for this in the 1980s, like experts told us to, instead of just kicking it down the road because they money was too good?
