On-street Parking Permits: taxing the poor?

$30 per year gives you street parking access, if you live in a house on that street. If you live in an apartment (>4 units), you are required pay $30 per month to park on the same street ($330 more per year!). Doesn't it stand to reason that if I could afford to live in a detached home in my desired area, I would? Why should I have to pay more for my parking, just because I can't afford a single-family home? What if I purchased my apartment? Am I less of a home owner than my neighbour? What a great example of a thoughtless municipal policy! Adding unnecessary barriers, to a non-existent problem. Way to go H.R.M. —North End Neighbour
