Dr. Harvey Lithwick, author of Urban Canada: Problems and Prospects, told the Town Planning Institute of Canada today that his research indi- cated the housing crisis is a fab- rication. "Middle-class people want houses at 1945 prices. For them, there's a crisis." Dr. Lithwick's comments came as a footnote to earlier remarks that Mr. Andras's new ministry will be devoting much of its time to research into urban problems. His book was prepared as a report to Mr. An- dras that was released in Janu- ary. A spokesman for the Canadian Council on Social Development, said Dr. Lithwick's view of Can- adian housing is "completely off base." Canadian cities had some of the lowest vacancy rates in the world, as low as one and two per cent. To talk about the lack of a housing crisis when a greater proportion of people's income was going to housing than ever before was unthinkable. Was Dr. Lithwick ignoring the vast amount of substandard housing in Canada?
