Affordable Housing on the BC Coast

Letter read on Almanac CBC, October 17th, 2016.

I am 70 and live on a boat. It’s a good option for affordable housing. Unfortunately, many coastal communities, Harbour authorities, and Island Trust committees discriminate against the live aboard option by banning our existence. This is totally unnecessary as there are many ways to deal creativity with live aboard boaters. An example of this is the Victoria Harbour Authority which had developed systems and policies to accommodate live aboard boats.
