Gentrification and kitty litter

A cat has a very thoughful post on the inability of anybody who hasn't won a lottery to buy a house in Vancouver.

It's a serious issue, which spills over into other aspects of life. At my old church, for example, the young middle class marrieds who would be the future pillars of the church all moved out to Surrey, Maple Ridge and the Fraser Valley. No affordable properties in Vancouver.
