affordable housing

Many years ago there was a problem with housing for the fish plant workers....the District of Tofino made available a property to private enterprise with the covenant that they would provide rental apartments.....hence Sin City ( Tonquin Apartments) was born and has provided affordable housing for 30 years at little or no cost to the taxpayer.....while the District of Tofino didn't get a high price for the land it has benefited from the taxation on the property and lots of people call it home....all without government subsidies....
