It seems the Left has a well understood mandate regarding: "Leslieville being 'protected' from over-gentrification by the high number of social housing projects in the area is quite well taken. These projects are not subject to economic forces and will remain, in some form, forever. And accordingly, there will always be enough addicts, prostitutes and crime in Leslieville to prevent a full-scale transformation into a family-friendly neighbourhood like the Beach or 'prime' Riverdale"...
"'insulation' against gentrification was installed quite deliberately by then-councillor (now MPP) Peter Tabuns back in the early 1990s. He saw gentrification coming and ushered in these housing projects, over the objection of the local residents (he once called the Woodgreen building at 1070 Queen East, which takes up almost an entire block with no retail at grade, "the most beautiful building in Riverdale"). What you are seeing now in Leslieville, therefore, is a clash between the free market, which favours Leslieville because of its excellent location and under-priced housing stock, and the legacy of socialist housing policy."
comment from Bill
We should try to stop this subsidized housing. It drives down property values for all of us and is particularly bad for those of us that work hard and have to pay full price for everything because we are not eligible for government hand-outs.
o explain verything would simply take wayyy to long, so here is just one of many many many studies and research that I am privy to due to my "day job" interesting stuff, for those who are fastinated by social and neuro psycology.
oh, and often times addicts have babies that are literally born addicted, and are even more predisposed to using once they are out of the foster care system (discharged at 18) where they usually end up. Most people prefer not ot adopt addicted babies as they have multiple issues. So they are socialised within the system and become "institutionalised"
