I sure wish that today's un-housers of Metro Vancouver could get a handle on their parents scrimping and saving of the 1980's

When the 1980's rolled around along with escalating oil prices from overseas, interest rates were driven sky high on the supply lines to the north american market which were unable to supply our own needs then.  Here we are again. For a country such as Canada not refining our own resources .....  benefits outfits like Kinder Morgan and their fellow American based in their outpost of Calgary.

An oh yeah... Edmonton  too.

August 1981  the keys to houses were being accumulated on an hourly basis by the lending institutions with no one to pick up the tab.   No jobs too.  Restraint Premier Bill Bennett was useless, his vision to balance his Budget was to sell BC Rail.
