Rent Control Please?

Why the hell is it so expensive to rent in Halifax? Why do complete dives cost an arm and a leg, and why are landlords allowed to keep raising rent? The argument is, people will pay it, so we charge it. But people HAVE to pay it because there is no where else to live! Rent here is now on par with Toronto, except there are fewer jobs for less money, SO WHY IS IT SO EXPENSIVE??? Oh and I guess I could move further out of the city, if public transportation wasn't so shitty. This city is becoming unlivable on minimum wage, I wonder why there is a homeless problem... —Heading for Cheaper Pastures
