MLA Ma responds to Andrew Wilkinson’s comments that the housing crisis is a ‘wacky time’

Posted in: ,

Daily Hive – February 28th, 2019 – BC Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson is coming under fire and being called “out of touch” after recent comments he made in Victoria this week, regarding the rental situation in the province.

On Wednesday, Wilkinson said renting is just a “fun part” of growing up.

“I was a renter for 15 years. I lived in a dozen different rentals,” he said. “It was challenging at times, but it was fun.”

He added that being a renter is a “rite of passage” and “part of growing up and getting better.”

“We’ve all done it,” he added. “It’s kind of a wacky time of life, but it can be really enjoyable.”

His comments were immediately pounced on by members of the NDP, who said it was due to the policies of the Liberals when they were in power that many find themselves still renting and unable to achieve homeownership.
