Do governments really think they can fix the housing problem?

Submitted to Affordable housing

According to Ms. Gerson, no one is going to fix the housing issue:  

“Every political party claim to want to fix the housing problem, but no one has the balls to tell the truth about it. Housing isn't a problem in Canada. Housing is an asset class that must be protected and nurtured regardless of the long-term consequences to family formation and social cohesion. No government is ever going to fix housing because the whole shady underbelly of our economy needs housing to stay exactly as it is - an inflated asset bubble with prices rivalling the most dynamic cities on earth.”

Do you agree with Ms. Gerson’s point of view? Why or why not?
