Description:

"With average real estate prices nearing $900,000, home ownership isn’t even a dream for many in Vancouver. For years, Canada’s national news has fixated on this specific market, trying to explain the dramatic value escalation that appears to be a bubble that won’t burst. Foreign ownership, lack of supply, greed and an inactive government have all been blamed. 

The things that make a city livable also make it desirable, and developers and investors prey upon those qualities in a free market that caters to the highest bidder. Director Charles Wilkinson moves beyond statistics and square footage to the people directly affected—including those with property and those without—in this candid and human portrayal of a city that continues to rise yet cannot meet demand."
