    The liberal left is beginning to set us up for state intervention in private property living accomodations.
    Toronto city council wants to prohibit people from renting out their basement apartments to temporary guests via airbnb – saying they should rent the apartment out as permanent housing for those who can’t find a reasonable place to live..

    So what’s next – you must rent your spare room to a refugee?

      It’s coming – little doubt of that. We simply need to look to Germany and Sweden for a preview.

      I’m waiting for the day you have to register your number of bedrooms and number of family members. Have less than 2 people per room? You get a refugee.

      Sorry your not allowed to have a guest room anymore.

      It’s why the last UK census included a new question on the number of bedrooms in a property, so they’d know how many migrants could be billeted on the home owner.
      Americans are not keen on billeting – hence the 3rd Amendment.

  • I wonder if during the Dark Ages the Spanish called the Moorish Invasion a housing crisis too.

    We geezers aren’t dying fast enough.

      We’ll have to pay an annual tax to defer euthanasia.

      When I was diagnosed with type I diabetes at the age of 16 I was told that I’d be dead in twenty years. I turned 60 last summer. On a few occasions I’ve come across the doctor that gave me the news back then. She doesn’t know why every time I see her I give her the bird, and chant “asshole alert”.

    It’s no different than Ontario seniors homes taking recent immigrants and refugee claimants ahead of Canadian citizens.
