the people in my low income (family) apt building. who have brand new vehicals(2014-2015). and wear designer clothes. if you can afford that shit you can afford rent somewhere else. since its 30% of monthly household income(min rent $326 no matter how little you make).and you are probablly paying the average rent in our city here anyway.

where as a family like myself who doesnt have a car and cant afford designer clothes. get put on a waiting list for months or yrs even (we were lucky and got in within a few months) while you sit pretty. without a care in the world. 

I work f/t but wouldnt be able afford the average rent right now.

I know tons of people on the waiting list while people with brand new cars, and people who just came to canada get in right away....

vent over

Most of those people you speak of, lie about their income. But I totally agree.

rent is that low where you live?  I have not seen that kind of rent here in about 35 yrs. WOW.  Also, I absolutely agree with you.

I agree, I knew a couple who rented from her brother, and got assistance to cover part of their rent, food stamps and cash assistance (utilities were included in rent), they ended up being 4 months behind on rent, and have completely trashed the apartment (holes in the wall, kids doodled everywhere, etc).. 

they got their income tax money back.. did they pay their back rent? Fix the holes like they promised? buy their kids new clothes because they were all stained and all had rips/holes?   No.. they bought a brand new flat screen tv for the livingroom and a HUGE computer monitor.
