Is it enough for all of these clowns?

I don't think that the Westminster system ensures the same kind of "cult of personality" that electoral systems that directly choose the President (or similar) do.  But are you actually suggesting two-term limits for MPs and party leaders?

Millennials seem quite unhappy with the price of housing in Canada and want the federal government to help them

The federal government used to have a co-op housing program that worked quite well and they need to bring it back How rich do the rich people in this country have to be before the government steps in to address the huge inequality between the rich and the poor?

How many times is this project going to be announced?

Is the media that hard up for news that they have to repeat a report on a do nothing announcement. It will be news when the shovels are in the ground and also when the first transit passengers use the system

Isn't Canada larger in terms of land than the U.S.?  And yes, I know we can't just build more homes on Baffin Island, but couldn't we build lots more homes on totally cheap land that hasn't been developed yet, maybe using some of our surplus softwood and such?  Would these millenials want those homes, even if they're not in the Distillery District or whatever, so long as they were way cheaper than the Distillery District, or whatever?  Four walls and a roof... sounds like a home to me.

If most of the jobs are in the Distillery District, most millennials might understandably not want to commute for over 3 hours a day just to get to and from work.

Shovels are in ground for Surrey LRT. I believe they have been working on roadwork and there was even a big brouhaha about a road being built through a park because of the LRT.

But Liberals should get a new leader anyway.

What does "most of the jobs" mean in the context of a country the size of Canada?

I think it means that most job openings in Canada are in a very tiny amount of its geography.
