People are still using the Neoliberal code word 'affordability' in this context -- when the most IMMEDIATE issue REMAINS: THE ALMOST COMPLETE LACK OF PUBLIC HOUSING CONSTRUCTION FOR (@4?) DECADES, NOW. And not LEAST -- PUBLIC housing FOR the Homeless population of Ontari-ari-ari-O. 'Affordable' NECESSARILY implies PRIVATE ownership of any new housing stock. YES IT DOES (don't anyone deny it); and so remains an UNACCEPTABLE strategy for the working-class to support, if it wishes to gain an independent role in this process.

Unless, of course, people are ALL FOR the speculators and developers and slumlords and petty suburban supporters of the Neoliberal 'Free Market' police-state.

We already have all the construction plans we need. I suggest instead, right now, the IMMEDIATE, MASS CONSTRUCTION of TINY HOMES for the Homeless. Then maybe Millennials and other proletarianized service workers can look into that option too.
