I find it interesting that Abe-Koga, Inks and Means have opposed placing the burden of affordable housing development on rental housing developers, BUT they think it's OK to place the burden on individual home owners.

The amount of criticism that was presented to the Council regarding the BMR being built at Evelyn/Franklin, and the amount of times this council ignored concerns is astounding. I guess the people who own homes around BMR are not rich enough or influential enough to receive a chance to compromise.
