Granny Shmammy

The Vancouver Sun has the most curious article this morning.

The headline reads:

"Nanny, granny or secondary suites are key for home ownership in Metro Vancouver"

After explaining the obvious - rental income helps pay the mortgage - the piece goes on to tell us how the City of Vancouver encourages such accommodations.


There is a house a block away from me that is for sale.

Asking price $2.2 Million.

Brand new.

But the so-called basement has a bathroom, the laundry and one useless square dungeon of a room.

That is because the City won't allow people on the West Side to build full basements that might be - oh, the horror! - rented - egad! - out.

It's a puzzlement.
