And while the province and Housing Minister Ravi Khalon have stressed often that they are partners with municipalities; they also have made it pretty clear that their mission is to see more housing built, with less roadblocks put in the way from the municipal side.
Towards that provincial theme, word came out last week of a list of ten communities that were on the 'naughty' list for the Housing Minister, with some extra attention to come from the province towards their efforts to create additional housing stock.
However, as it turns out, the ten communities that were noted on Friday, were just a few of the locations on Mr. Khalon's radar.
With the larger list now marking 47 communities and delivered through an Order in Council by the Government.
That includes many communities large and small from the Lower Mainland, Okanagan/Interior and Vancouver Island areas, the reach coming as far North as Prince George.
