So the landlords and real estate agents managed to kibosh the new “affordable, decent” housing initiative. Now real estate prices and rents can stay high and working people can stay poor – and more money can slide into the bank accounts of the rich.
Hurray for the Yukon Party for realizing what they had almost done: replaced greed with concern for the common good.
Now everybody can go back to being themselves – with the rich getting richer and the rest of us paying the bills.
I know the world has always been like this but in my dotage, I kept hoping for things to change. Old working stiffs like me don’t have enough time left to enter politics, but young people who have their whole lives ahead of them should do it.
Then you won’t have to look back and say to yourselves, “I should have tried to make the world a more caring place, but now it is too late.”
