I was talking about coquitlam, surrey, etc. $55/hr in vancouver buys you a shipping containerWhat's wrong with Coquitlam, Surrey, Langley, Cloverdale, Abbotsford, etc. Lot's of affordable townhouses and houses there.So your solution is bribes? Awesome.Don't get me started on permitting delays.These government workers think a good paying job is a right. They get every second Friday off and at 4;20 pm stop answering their phones. Lots of sick days and personal days, full benefits and a pension. If you follow up on a permit you are waiting for they get mad. And it's not like you can buy them lunch or dinner or give them a bottle of scotch to get expedited service.
Here is a planner job for $55 an hour.

I know they have heavy work loads so hire more and pay overtime, At $77 an hour you would get city workers working evenings and weekends. They pay for themselves with permit fees, CACs, DCCs, etc.
Give developers the option of paying extra fees for a fast track permit.
$55 an hour... LOL...they can afford a 1 bedroom for their family at that wage.
