I attended a few seminars and talks that included guests from tiny home advocates - some on the building side, some on the social justice side, etc and they were all echoing similar concerns about zoning and what I thought was the hook-up cost.
I admitted I'm fuzzy on the numbers - but I remember seeing quite a few cost breakdowns and zoning issues from a few different folks and the message was all pretty much the same - we want them, but can't have them.
The mayor and Chiarelli were both special guests at the time and both basically talked about how the challenges were real and unfortunate, although they were pretty dismissive about actually addressing the issues. Lots of "we'll look into it, and good luck" type talk.
I was merely echoing what I remembered from folks who clearly had a vested interest in getting this movement off the ground in Canada.
