...But It's A Whole Lot Harder To Get Out The Whine.
And/or the heavy breathing of the Deputy Premier on affordability and housing, and all that.
Martin MacMahon of CKWX has the story:
Claiming there are some people who will never be happy on housing, the minister responsible is defending the province’s record on that file.
Stating there’s a lot of provincial work that goes unseen, such as 20,000 seniors receiving cheques to subsidize housing, Minister Rich Coleman says the work that is done by the province isn’t always recognized...
...“I guess some people just have to get up and whine every day, I don’t know,” says Coleman...
I actually think I kinda/sorta get why Mr. Coleman might be legitimately upset by folks slagging his efforts on this file.
Because while Mr. Coleman's efforts here are only half-measures, at best, they do at least something real standing behind the photo-ops and the prop-a-gammon.
But, when you are part of a government that has been going full-bore photo-op since (at least) 2011...
How do you expect people to react to half-measures?
And, for those of us who have been paying attention...We also recall where affordable public housing has been lost in Lotusland...
And for those who pay attention to minutae (for the irony)...We also recall how a certain fine fellow who once championed a notion that became the fast-ferrified Ice Bomb bridge around our collective necks used to tell anyone that would listen that Mr. Coleman was going to turn the social housing landscape into Valhalla...
