Re: ‘Affordable housing always a crucial issue’ (Editorial, PQB News, March 12)
The need for affordable housing is definitely one of our greatest social issues.
And lots of people are trying to help. But not necessarily all levels government are. As I see it, the Agricultural Land Commission is deliberately standing in the way.
In the big picture it is noble to protect actual farm land for farming, but around here there is ‘so-called’ farm land that could save some people as well.
Some RV’s or cabins might not be the most dreamed of housing but for those who can only afford that, it sure beats the next alternative down the ladder.
So lighten up, see the new reality of people needing a place to live with some form of dignity.
Who knows, maybe some of these people will grow a garden, sounds like farming to me .
