(1112) Housing reality in the GTA


Fighting reality usually makes its negative aspects worse.  Yet, who doesn’t find the idea of a detached home with a few trees and some other bits of greenery surrounding it seductive?  It does seem that the reality around that is way ahead of what just may be our biggest commonly held desire.  Funnily enough, when reading Matt Elliot’s piece addressing our housing reality in today’s Metro banner ads popped up featuring a nice three-storey with big trees either side.
