    Wow. So literally locked in at 0.00% for 20 full years, no fine print and excessive fees, etc?

    I've been to Denmark and it's a strange place. I suppose strange culture is a better term. A couple of things that stood out were that you could drink lunch beer at work even if you worked in an elementary school and that they are so unionized, that there was literally a "Union of Unskilled Workers".
    I can't recall exactly how feasible land ownership was to middle class people, but I know car ownership was only for the wealthy. When a New Beetle was roughly $30k here, it was $60k there.

    It's a very socialist but happy country with very high tax rates. Your pen would be happy there.

    Sounds to me like this policy is based out of having a home also being “for the wealthy” considering homes were unaffordable.

    If I am not mistaken, schooling is also free there, including university.

    It is. In fact, university students are actually paid (but a tiny, tiny amount). I believe they also receive subsidized housing as well.

    Well nothing is "free"

    Summary about cost of living in Copenhagen, Denmark:

    Family of four estimated monthly costs are 5,694.14C$ (27,061.74kr) without rent (using our estimator).
    A single person estimated monthly costs are 1,584.36C$ (7,529.77kr) without rent.
    Cost of living index in Copenhagen is 31.18% higher than in Toronto.
    Rent in Copenhagen is, on average, 3.37% higher than in Toronto.
    Definitely not a cheap country to live in.

    Yes, it's really weird. Beer was practically free in the store, but it cost the same as here at a pub. Hard liquor was 50% more $ than here. Restaurant meals and going for coffee was very expensive. Beef was very expensive. McDonald's was about 2x. Cars were 2x$ to start and then fuel and insurance etc etc. I think it cost >$12k for the driver training just to get a license.

    Why are they so happy? More taxes = happier people?

    After tax wages are also 20% higher than Toronto though. So the gap isn't quite as large.

    Cannabis won't be optional anymore, it'll be mandatory.
