Ottawa recently announced they're considering removing their mandatory parking minimums. For context, parking minimums are extremely arbitrary, based on pseudoscience, and are a key barrier to housing development.

I've seen this in Canada waaaay too much. Instead of rightfully directing their anger at screwed-up land use restrictions and a draconian zoning code, people who are normally pro-immigration are rapidly turning anti-immigrant because of the housing crisis.

New analysis from RMI finds that by encouraging better-located, less car-dependent communities, we can solve the nationwide housing shortage while dramatically cutting pollution.

For reference, Pointe-Claire is right next to a new automated light metro station, so blocking housing there is doubly harmful, as it sabotages the potential ridership of a brand new rapid transit system.

This op-ed details how housing has gotten faaaar more expensive over the past several decades but without corresponding wage growth, leaving it increasingly unaffordable. The author (correctly) argues that this is due to the rising land values, which does not represent true wealth creation and is rather simply a vehicle for wealth redistribution from the younger and working class to the older and landed.
