While I take some issue with the assertion that every redevelopment that shifts people out of rooming houses is a bad thing...

It is true we do an abysmal job of providing this type of housing, and although I've seen hopeful glimpses here and there of people who are willing to put their money where their mouth is (like this: we do need more housing of this type - that is safe.

That doesn't mean leaving properties like the King/Bay one where the refuse in the rooms was waist-high as OK, nor properties with faulty plumbing, electrical, or wiring, but there needs to be a more comprehensive plan to create affordable housing units -- for those who will need them on a long-term basis, not just short-term.
