rent control comes to BC??

I'm finding this hard to believe, but according to CBC news, the BC government is eliminating the longstanding option to circumvent the percentage cap and increase rents to what neighbouring properties are charging.

If this is so, this is a huge gamechanger -for landlords in BC, and for tenants!

I am well and happy, and doing a series of brief forum breaks as part of self-care :)
