    Thanks to this wonderful OIL BOOM, housing costs for normal folk are gone up so high we cannot afford a regular sized house in St. John's anymore. Also, rental rates have gone up. Now that the housing assesments have gone up, the only people who wil be able to afford a house in the Avalon are the people in the oil industry.
    This Oil Boom has turned into a oil bummer for us people not relocating from Alberta... :(

    Won't be long now and the real estate yahoos will be on the news to shoot down this story as they want the prices high so they can get more commission....

    Anyone know if HRD is funding workers 50% (in order to get their stamps) to work for wealthy contractors for minimum wage? Are some home owners getting their renovations for half the cost at the expense of the taxpayer?

    Hey, if I can get my work done for half the price tell me where to sign up. Everything is going up while people are not working to support these over inflated prices created by a greedy market.

    A penny saved as the old saying goes. Long live the underground economy! Let those that took for so long from so many start to pay it forward for a change.

    @Little Johnny: You'er not making sense. It's the rich who are taking advantage of this loophole and getting richer and keeping workers on minimum wage at our expense. Don't mind make work projects that we all benefit from but paying for the renos of a rich person???
