The Alberta NDP are proposing changes to the Human Rights Code that will make it illegal for landlords to discriminate based on age, essentially outlawing new adult-only buildings, and phasing out the ones that currently exist over 15 years.
Seniors housing developments, with a minimum age of 55, will remain.
The NDP is doing this on the pretence that families with small children are being discriminated against when looking for rental accommodation.
Kids can be destructive. Pets, too.
Renting to people with kids are pets can often be a huge financial risk for any landlord and some are just not willing to take it.
But now in socialist Alberta, there will be a human right to live in someone else's house against the wishes of the owner, but no human right to property autonomy.
The Edmonton Journal, parroting government talking points, says:
"Families with children will have more housing options in the new year if proposed changes to Alberta’s human rights legislation are passed."
But the opposite will happen.
WATCH as I explain why…
Socialists don't understand supply and demand, and real human rights, like property rights. And they never will.
