Since you asked for it... here are the six high-level challenges to building 1.5 million units in 10 years. twitter.com/h_volkhammer/s…

Great list! I'd renumber it a bit & rephrase: how could building 5.8 million new homes in Canada in the next 10 years, as @CMHC_ca recommends, help realize the right to housing? 1/8 cmhc-schl.gc.ca/en/blog/2022/c… twitter.com/MikePMoffatt/s…

(please note this goes well beyond ON's 1.5 m goal, but is well within fed govt capacity - Sweden built 1 million homes for 6 million pop 1965-75, Can equivalent today would be 6+ million homes - & Sweden was much poorer then than Can is now) 2/8 housingrights.ca/housing-tell-t…

1. Coordination: 1 def of aff hsg (30% hh income emphasis on low & mod income hhs) for all govts, with data on who needs what kinds of homes where across Canada at what cost (demand), then measure supply by these simple metrics: cost, size, needs of priority pops 3/8 @ubcHART

2. Build 2 million non-market homes. They save lives most directly. It models what can/should be done. It redresses 3 decades of neglect of 1.5 million hhs at risk of homelessness 4/8 scotiabank.com/ca/en/about/pe…

3. Productivity: Sweden used prefab modular 50+ years ago to reach these goals, Japan uses it now. Time for Canada to take the lead 5/8 mckinsey.com/~/media/mckins…

4. Viability. Get rid of dvmt charges, incl IZ - it just punishes new renters & owners. Instead, new mun revenue thru property taxes that are progressive (land tax, luxury tax or graduated rates, waivers for non-profit hsg), with annual valuations 6/8 imfg.munkschool.utoronto.ca/uploads/325/17…
