If you want to live in Salt Spring, you have to be rich

[Editor’s note: ‘This Has Always Been a War’ features essays about Lori Fox’s work and family life — highlighting the difficulty of the banal, and the banality of the difficult. After living through a childhood marked by trauma, Fox must make their way through adulthood without the family connections they’ve left behind in order to find peace and safety and freedom — in a world that is often openly hostile to Fox’s gender, and queerness, and where it is difficult to make the fruits of labour align with the rising costs of rent. The following excerpt comes from ‘Other People’s Houses,’ an essay that explores Fox’s search for stable work and stable housing in the same place, at the same time.]
