This means 7.8 per cent of homes in White Rock are empty homes.
It seems like a good time for White Rock council to impose an empty-homes tax, just as Vancouver has done.
These empty homes and condos do not produce residents shopping in our stores or contributing to our community. Sadly, housing is becoming a commodity instead of a place for people to live.
The empty-homes tax in Vancouver is bringing in a large amount of revenue for Vancouver taxpayers. Why not White Rock?
