Who Does this City Think it Is?

Posted on Tue, Jul 26, 2011 at 9:55 AM

Why the fuck are apartments so expensive in this city? It really makes no sense that this city is on par with Montreal (sometimes more expensive), Toronto, and Vancouver. The services, infrastructure, economy, and job market here do not warrant such a high cost of living IN A SHIT HOLE. Compared to two years ago, prices of bachelors/one bedrooms have doubled (I know this because I've been renting here for 7 years). This is the highest year yet. And it's fucking ridiculous. $800 for a BACHELOR in a shit hole? Are you fucking kidding me? Who does this city think it is? Who do these landlords think they are? I guess they're catering to the students with Mommy & Daddy's rent money but fuck. This bubble is going to pop soon. It has to. —Don't Want to be House-Poor
