A Government Gets It Right

Too bad it's Canada. They're considering giving people the option of buying their government-owned housing, which is currently all dilapidated because the tenants don't own it and therefore don't care about it. I hope they actually go through with their plan and give power to the people rather than the bureaucrats (um... "chiefs").

The most telling quote is: "These chiefs believe the solution is more money for housing from the Federal Government." If the government listens to the chiefs instead of to themselves, it certainly wouldn't be the first time a government tried (and failed) to solve a problem by throwing money at it!
