Toronto Rent Control Restricting Supply

As a Toronto property owner, I guess its good for me when my competitors won’t add to the supply of residential rental apartments (“smart”/current landlords are getting rich(er)), but as a Torontonian, I think rent control is hurting our city (and extending our commute times) since limiting the rent residential landlords can charge decreases the incentives for developers to add supply, thereby just making it more expensive for tenants in the long run. But if few Torontonians understand the dynamics of supply and demand, will rent control still sound appealing to voters? Probably 🙁 Rent control is making it harder for young people to own property, so keep investing in Toronto based REITs.
