Michael Geller:
Affordable Housing a Difficult Goal

Michael Geller, writing in the Sun, answers a reporter's question: "Can municipal politicians really do much about affordability or is [Mayoral candidate Suzanne] Anton just blowing smoke?"
"...I will be voting for politicians who have a realistic understanding of the issues and the appropriate role of a municipal government. I will also support those candidates who will spend money wisely. Otherwise, an increasing number of people may be sleeping in tents three years from now." Emphasis mine...
I am also wondering how and why important public health care and social policy (addressing homelessness and its attendant complexities) ended up being developed by municipal politicians and earnest, well-intentioned volunteers.
