Cost of living for a family of four is $4000 without rent ??? That can’t be right ..... has anyone confirmed that ?
anonymous on Apr 07, 2021:
These costs of living explain the housing crisis and rate of homelessness increasing and living in parks and public areas.

Sounds like you need to live in your pull trailer. Besides living in a small area will keep you both happy just as long as you're together.

The price off every thing is so high. How do people think we are to live. Not everyone has a very high paying job. It hard when you see every thing keep going up and up but the wages are not any way close to helping. My hubby and I manage a apt bluilding when we go to retired we have to leave the bluilding and the wages to live where. We can't afford any thing on old age penchant. We are puying a trailer and keep working to pay it off so we have something to live in. The next thing is where do we go with it. There something so wrong here. And it fall at the feet of big money.

I think the housing data (for both rent and buy) are for year 2016. Now it's year 2018. It has increased by approximately 50% since 2016.

A&W at The Bay Centre mall, in downtown Victoria, B.C. now charges $8.99 for an Uncle Burger. No fries or drinks included.

It costs, easily $12 a person to buy lunch, at an inexpensive eatery downtown.
