Couple denied home for having a daughter

What?

There’s likely more to this story than simple discrimination, but a Vancouver couple is claiming they were denied a housing coop home because their second child was a girl.

Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) guideline suggests children of opposite sexes can’t share a bedroom if they are over the age of five, but it’s OK for children of the same sex to do so.

Gottfried and Hurtig believe it should be up to parents to decide when and if children share a room.

“I would describe it as being completely outrageous and appalling and just unbelievable,” Gottfried tells Go Public.

“No matter how I thought about it, I couldn’t really wrap my brain around it,” Hurtig says.

The one-income family says money is tight. Getting the unit would have meant their rent would drop from $1,840 to $895 a month.

“It’s discrimination. We get the room if our children are the same sex and we don’t get the room if our children are not the same sex. It’s very, very clear-cut discrimination,” Gottfried said.

Who can afford kids when living in Vancouver? Is this what we have become; such an expensive and unlivable city that only the wealthy and single people can afford to live here? Isn’t this exactly what everybody on this blog complains about?

That’s right I agree with you, but the solution isn’t to pump out more kids. The healthy options are move away somewhere cheaper, have less kids, or do something to try and fix the affordability crisis so families can afford to live here again.

You can’t crank out kids, have no money, then complain that the taxpayer subsidized co-op won’t let you cram your opposite gender kids into the same room. I think if you can’t afford to give each of your kids their own room, don’t have kids.

“the solution isn’t to pump out more kids.”

Did someone say pumping out kids was a solution? People are going to have kids. Nothing wrong with that. The couple has 2 kids. This couple is simply looking for a 2 bedroom apartment in a low end building with a family of 4. Seems pretty reasonable to me. I applaud people like this who have reasonable expectations and are not demanding a SFH because they need a yard.

If they can’t afford a 2 bedroom units, they should have stopped at 1. This is why we need mean tested birth permits in this country. Fucking irresponsible people pumping out kids they can’t afford and then expects government to bail them out….

Damn right! We should really require people to pass a financial means test before issuing them a birth permit to allow them to have kids, up to the cap stated on the permit. Otherwise, our tax dollars have to towards raising those extra kids these irresponsible parents keeps popping out. Also, all the government subsidization to people with families should be removed as well. It’s unfair to people without kids, and distorts the market.

Actually birth rates are slowing down. There are some models that predict the world population will plateau around 2050. You are right about co-ops it used to be for poor pensioners and families on welfare, but with the cost of housing, even upper middle class people are crowding into co-ops. This house of cards will end very badly.

patriotz

” You are right about co-ops it used to be for poor pensioners and families on welfare ”

That has never been the case in Vancouver. Public housing, i.e. owned directly by the government, was for poor people. Some examples are the former Little Mountain complex and the Raymur complex (whatever it’s called now). In fact most co-ops prior to 1970, i.e. before condos were made legal, were for higher income people.

Governments wanted to get away from building housing for poor people only so they started to finance co-ops which offered subsidized housing to the poor and non-subsidized for others in the same complex. The big surge in this was in the 1970’s with False Creek South and Champlain Heights.

YVR
Guest

Co-ops in general were just an early version of a condo. You own a share of the whole building with rights to a specific unit. A bank cannot foreclose on a co-op share so getting a mortgage is more difficult and typically requires 35% down. That is why we have condos now. Nobody would build a market co-op today because of the financing. For this reason co-ops are cheaper than condos for equivalent units.

You’re thinking of a different kind of co-op, the kind you buy vs. the kind you rent.

The vast majority are the rental kind, but you purchase a share usually around $2-3K which guarantees you can stay forever as long as you follow the rules.

The term ‘co-op’, in your reference to an early way of ‘buying’ an apartment before the Strata Act, actually stood for “COmpany Operated Property”

That is different from government funded non-profit “cooperative” housing.

Actually there are different types of co-ops. Most people think they are all for low income earners. While some indeed only accept applications from applicants that can prove that their income is below a certain threshold, most other co-ops like the one my family lives in actually ask for the opposite, you need a fairly high minimal family income especially for bigger, 2 and 3 BD units or THs.

Doomcouver
Guest

I realize that there are un-subsidized co-ops for higher earners currently. I’m just saying historically this wasn’t really the case because housing was cheap enough that most middle class people would just buy their home. Since the prices got so jacked up, co-ops have been popular with higher earners because it’s kind of like a blend of renting and ownership. Since they can’t afford to own, or don’t want to, this is the next best thing.

Word through grapevine from my sources in the government is that they are preparing to have expedited approvals for wealthy immigrants from Taiwan and South Korea. Given the increased tensions in the region, a lot of rich Taiwan and South Korean families are looking to move their family and wealth out of the area. Canadian government is trying to attract those wealth to Canada, quietly of course. So get ready for another wave of millionaires coming starting soon. The rumored intake number is 250K base, with 500K expected, and hoped for 1M over next 3 years.

There is an interesting YOUTUBE video by late Aaron Russo.
He made a documentary that one attracted attention of one of the Rockefellers. They became buddies and Rockefeller asked Russo what he thought the women’s movement was about.Russo thought it was about womens rights..but Rockefeller scolded him and said it was so that women would enter the work force and then they could be taxed..

Long story short……we see the fallout..high divorce rate, abortions…single parent families..rampant inflation..none of which is conducive to raising families. Gloria Steinem was an admitted CIA agent

All planned by the elites…not an accident. The lack of domestic birth is results in higher immigration.

Women entering the workforce was definitely something that business owners wanted. It depressed wages for all workers and made it so both parents needed to be in the workforce to pay for the costs of living. Forcing women into new gender roles of being a dual breadwinner with their partner has destroyed the traditional nuclear family. So in summary, equal rights for women is good, tricking them into the workforce to crush wages is bad. I think families would be a lot better off if cost of living was cheaper, and only one parent needed to work full time to support the family.

This discussion on having kids, or not, is disturbing. We are not talking about families on welfare with hordes of kids. This is a two income, two kids family. It is disturbing that people seem to accept the fact that fertility should be restricted by house prices, yet it is perfectly OK to sell the scarce land that should house local residents to foreigners with loads of cash. Whether or not they live in the premises, speculate or simply park their illicit cash appears irrelevant. It seems that politicians (and a large part of the voting public) condone mass displacement. Working families are displaced by migrant millionaires and large swathes of Vancouver are transformed in resort areas inhabited by people who generate income elsewhere and pay no local taxes on it. I cannot believe that people will simply accept this… Read more »

“Board members say the only reason Gottfried came to their attention was because he flooded the co-chair of the co-op’s membership committee with text messages and was trying to influence the process.

“The member who is newly a volunteer in this position on the membership committee was and remains distressed by this attention,” the co-op board told Go Public.

Gottfried admits he did send numerous text messages in a short period of time, but says it was a technical glitch where the same message was sent several times.”

It seems that this applicant was harassing the co-op volunteer and then went crying to the media to get attention.

Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) guideline suggests children of opposite sexes can’t share a bedroom if they are over the age of five, but it’s OK for children of the same sex to do so.

The co-op is following CMHC guidelines which seems reasonable. I have to wonder why CMHC, a mortgage insurance agency, makes such guidelines. First off shouldn’t the BC Ministry of Children make such guidelines and have them applicable to everyone not just co-ops? Second, who is to say which gender these kids are? Maybe they haven’t chosen their gender yet. Isn’t that how it works? Kids choose their gender. With the whole designating washroom by gender controversy you would think we could get away from designating private bedrooms by gender.

A housing market is the most healthy when house prices roughly track inflation, and is used as shelter. Greed has made people lose sight of what housing is supposed to be for. It’s not supposed to be an investment vehicle, or a commodity to be flipped. Treating housing primarily as an investment is distorting the market. The end-state is massive wealth inequality, and an economy completely dependent on massively overpriced housing.

Exactly! This is why housing should be doled out according to needs, not wants or wealth. In fact, all secondary ownership, and corporate ownership should be banned. Government should levy special taxes on houses that is not being utilized property – eg empty mansions with 4 bedrooms and 1 couple with no kids.

Adam Smith called housing a productive assets and landlords rentiers for a reason. We should follow his advice and ban such abominations and distortion from the markets. Only then can people, like the ones on this blog, who truly deserves houses can afford them.

Building a house and renting it out is not doing nothing. Smith referred to land owners as rentiers. Note that the land owner and house owner were not necessarily the same party.

“A tax upon ground-rents would not raise the rents of houses. It would fall altogether upon the owner of the ground-rent, who acts always as a monopolist, and exacts the greatest rent which can be got for the use of his ground.”
