Robertson’s Task Force Represents Minority Only

The opening paragraph of a Vancouver Sun story on Mayor Robertson’s Housing Affordability Task Force states:

Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson has drawn deeply on all sectors of the housing industry to represent his new “housing affordability task force” in the hope of finding realistic solutions to the city’s housing problems.

Is that not bullshit or what?

As I understand the latest figures, 55% of Vancouver’s population are renters.  And yet not a single renter is represented on the Task Force. Not one.

The landlords are there, but the renters are not.  The realtors and the developers are there, but more than half the population is ignored, excluded, told they don’t count.

What’s with that?

    Yup, looks like pretty much the same crew who created the problem have been called in to fix it.
