They don’t want a Vacant Homes Tax so they fail to count the full scale of #VacantIreland & then use this as an excuse for not bringing in a Vacant Homes Tax

🧵20 reasons why I believe the Land Property Tax survey was set up to show low vacancy rates

This is #DerelictIreland
1.
22.4% didn’t fill out the LPT survey, that’s 380,000 homes – how many of these are vacant?
2.
The LPT survey is self-reporting – so who would raise their hands to pay an extra tax?

I’ve been doing a side project lately, seeking to understand recent federal housing investments in historical context.

The graph below shows affordable housing units funded by the federal government between 1946 and 2019.
#affordablehousing #HousingForAll
This graph requires additional refinement, but essentially shows approved units and acquisitions under CMHC’s various programs through time. My source for these data is a CMHC publication entitled “Canadian Housing Statistics”, which was published continually from 1955 to 2012
You can find a link to each one of these reports here: tinyurl.com/39ahpnne. Data for the National Housing Strategy + Investment in Affordable Housing are taken from a Progress Report on Housing Investments (Annex C), found here: tinyurl.com/3drkrmvw

@ThatSeanKeenan @AtlantaMagazine since i was not asked for my answers; here they are:
@ThatSeanKeenan @AtlantaMagazine #1-"the cop one"
unlike most mayoral candidates contending in this race; i believe in the abolition of our policing institutions. we can build a safety department which doesn't wield any lethal power(power no state should hold btw) #AbolishThePolice
@ThatSeanKeenan @AtlantaMagazine #2-"the crime one"
most crime is not a something we should fight from the top down but eliminate from the bottom up via assuring a society where needs are provided for; acts of desperation will be drastically reduced..

This is hard to write but it is true for many. What I’m about to say is a harsh reality of what people go through.

What I am about to say is also the reason why a lot of people don’t ask for help.

People do not ask for help because of the fears and stigmas that exist.

Here Is Something to think about,

What if you were a #singleparent with a #child

You work full time for $15.00/hr

You take home roughly $960.00 per paycheck (bi-weekly after taxes)

#singleparent #parenting #Blessed #grateful #calgary #calgarylife #alberta #yyc

@EveryAlbertan
Your bills per month:

$1,000 or more for rent
$150 or more for cable/internet
$250 or more for utilities
$150 per month for car insurance

So let’s do the math

You bring home about
$1,920.00 a month

Your bills average about $1,500(give or take)

The #First100Days of a president’s term are historically their best chance to enact their agenda. What has Biden done?
Biden and Harris promised to implement a public option and lower the age of Medicare to 60, policies that fail to cover the 92 million Americans who are uninsured or underinsured and save the 68,000 who die every year from a lack of insurance. #MedicareForAll
But Biden and the Democrats didn’t even live up to these moderate pledges. Instead, they expanded COBRA subsidies, funneling tens of billions of dollars to health insurance corporations that are already making record profits as they jack up premiums and increasingly deny claims.

As we grapple with LA's failure to house its people, we want to reaffirm a commitment to equity and fairness in our approach. @CamnerLeonora wrote about why it is important for the #yimby movement to center WHERE to put housing and for WHOM:

abundanthousingla.org/a-yimby-moveme…
Abundant Housing LA is building the pro-housing movement for LA. But it’s not enough to just be supportive of housing in general. Achieving housing abundance requires thoughtful approaches that center equity, racial justice, and environmentalism.

abundanthousingla.org/policyagenda/
Abundant Housing is committed to critically reexamining our approach to housing, our past positions, and direction in the context of equity and racial justice.

This week sees my life and peace of mind, housing security and finances all messed with by the Department of Housing, Qld and the Department of Education, Skills and Employment - JSP’s oversight body. Social Housing screw up! & threats of loss of JobSeeker from anon body. #auspol
I am so over this draconian system. Where is the recourse? I have an active on-foot complaint about Job Search Providers, unresolved - and some anonymous JSP sms’s me today, Saturday morning, saying I’m jeapardising my JobSeeker payment - they don’t say how. #auspol #RaiseTheRate
This directly affects my ability to pay my rent and survive.

In just two weeks I have experienced contacts with the Department of Housing, Job Service Providers, the hotline for same with Dept of Education, Skills & Wmployment and Centrelink. All have taken hours of my time in calls & appointments with them that bring zero hope. #auspol
For each one of these contacts, I am required to give my Centrelink Reference Number - I feel I no longer have a name, I am simply to be referred to as 123456789A nine numbers and one letter. After which all manner of other identifying details become relevant and required.
I am working in a underemployed capacity, and literally am only eligible for a whopping just under twenty dollars of the set rate of JobSeeker (sans Covid19 supplement) and has been on this payment for years - what help is provided? What assistance? Why is now different?

THREAD: I’m voting early for #BidenHarris2020.

Here’s why, against many of my core values, I’m doing so, why you should too if you’re able, AND why voting in this election is not revolutionary, and deeply insufficient:
I believe we need to use every tool we have at this moment. I believe a contested election gives us more fodder than one where Trump wins easily. I believe a racist establishment president is NOT BETTER but MORE NAVIGABLE than a fascist for of our most marginalized communities.
That being said, the idea that fascism can be voted away is dangerous, not only because fascism doesn’t care about the laws of democracy, but also because fascist movements that are mobilized at this moment will continue to be, regardless of how the election plays out.

When we face unprecedented challenges—a global pandemic, a worsening climate crisis, & the violence of racism & xenophobia—we need to meet them with big, bold solutions.

I believe we need a #GreenNewDeal & nothing less.
That means:

✅ Decarbonizing our existing housing stock & guaranteeing #HousingForAll;

✅ A #FederalJobsGuarantee with a $15/hr living wage & the right to form a union for all workers;

✅ Ensuring healthcare's a human right via #MedicareForAll & cancelling all medical debt.
It means:

✅ Investing in our current & future generations of young people by enacting tuition-free public colleges & trade schools while also eliminating student debt;

✅ & an immediate transition away from all fossil fuels & towards clean, renewable energy.

Addressed the Virtual Conference on Real Estate Resurgence of @FollowCII. Lockdown to curtail spread of Covid-19 has impacted all sectors adversely including real estate. Reverse migration of construction labour & break in supply of materials, have disrupted works considerably. ImageImageImage
On Ministry’s Advise, RERA of 27 States/UTs have revised timelines of registered projects by 6/9 months automatically as force majeure. Also, States/ Agencies have extended validity of various approvals/ clearances by one year. ImageImageImage
RBI has recently provided 6 months moratorium to all loans. All these steps will save projects from getting stalled/ stressed, obviate unnecessary litigations, and ensure timely delivery of houses with new milestones to homebuyers- a win-win for all, specially the homebuyers. ImageImage

It gives me immense happiness that our real estate developers @NaredcoNational & @CREDAINational have come up with their own guidelines in tune with the guidelines issued by MHA/ MoH&FW for restarting work at construction sites to ensure safety of the labour.
I thank them for taking good care of all the workers, who are backbone of construction industry by providing them housing near the sites, hygienic food, necessary medical & financial assistance & taking all other safety precautions to protect them from COVID-19.
I congratulate NAREDCO for getting Hon’ble MoS(IC), HUA to unveil video on their guidelines.

It is not only the labour but all urban poor whose livelihoods have been affected due to COVID-19. We should take care of all these important contributors to urban economy. ImageImageImage

@TOBYTEK @ninaturner Toby, I want you to think real hard on this & listen, ok? Closely.

It's not about "Socialism", it's about you, it's about me, it's about US. You DESERVE what other people in other countries have; healthcare, paid maternity leave, tuition free college, cheap broadband, /1
@TOBYTEK @ninaturner living wages, long term care rights for you & your loved ones, student loan debt & medical debt erased, on & on. It's not socialism, it's compassion. It is all about YOU & everyone else. Do you think it's fair YOUR TAX $ go towards subsidizing Exxon? Walmart? Amazon? /2
@TOBYTEK @ninaturner Because it is. When your tax dollars could be going towards things which truly help people, it goes to corporations who pay no taxes and whose wages are so low that their employees have to rely on Gov't assistance. People are literally dying working for Amazon. /3

#BerniesTaxCuts a thread.
So when thinking about Bernie Sanders policies, many of us typically think about how they will benefit us as a nation. But I want you all to do me a favor: think DEEPLY about how his policies will directly affect your life in the here and now. How would
tuition free public college or trade school affect you? This tax that you would pay in the form of tuition would be eliminated thus saving you THOUSANDS of dollars and getting an education. You would never have to go into debt to pay it back. What about those of you who already
went to college? How would you fair financially if suddenly you didn't have to pay your student loan debt tomorrow or ever again? What if you could use that money to save for a house or start a business? How about saving for a vacation or buying something you want like a camera?
