Good topic.
IMHO, Hogan badly needs an edge. The NDP seems to have an ideological problem with job creation. So, they are going to have to play big on social issues and housing affordability. 
I'm looking at big promises on non-market housing. Plus, various threats on speculators etc. 
If Hogan is going to win, he has to win the middle class. Perhaps, a public-private partnership on affordable housing. Take Germany as a successful example where government has worked with the private sector on rental availability.
If Hogan is at the top of his game, he will have consulted with metro Vancouver city halls. Have an outline of a long term housing strategy.

The interesting thing is that Vancouver has a new housing strategy.

"New affordable housing policies for the young"

viewtopic.php?f=8&t=129647

Should the NDP agree with these populist objectives, and offer substantial support, IMO the NDP has the chance of sweeping Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island. As these regions have 2/3 of the population, the NDP would than have a chance at forming the government.

Don't know what those NDP guys are doing. Nothing heard from them at this late date.

NDP doesn't have to win. They will force Christy Clark to up the ante, if they are a credible threat. Remember the 15% foreign buyers tax?  :mrgreen:

Here's my honest opinion. There's no Single solution. Everyone has to do their part.
Rich individuals have to contribute to social housing. The municipal has got to take risks, and sort out the zoning strategy. Finally, the province has to do it's part on affordable housing.

In France, it seems that cities have to ensure that 20% of housing is 'public'.

And, Ottawa has to catch the visa fraudsters and tax the flippers. Yes we can.

If Canada started enforcing rules in place, all the rats would run back to their hole.

The answer is already here.

The government doesn't need to do anything. Intelligent people already knwow that in bc people without a high income can get assistance, not welfare , for theor housing costs and don't need to live in social housing to qualify
