Living downtown is a privilege, not something to be handed out to those who can't afford to house themselves. I fully support more affordable housing, but not in the city core.

I understand that I have to live a certain distance away from the city core and its convenience because I only pull in X dollars and have to find a corresponding level and location of housing.

As a worker, it really irritates me that others would just be handed this privilege when I've been working for it.

From an economic perspective, it doesn't make any sense to locate people who aren't working in skilled jobs or spending... conveniently near SKILLED WORKPLACES and RETAIL -- and it does nothing to remind people that location near these amenities is a privilege and one to be paid for accordingly.
