Provincial Green candidate Matt Richter was out and about today hanging Marc’s message on door handles in Bracebridge.
We collaborate. Thank you Matt!
The Districts of Parry Sound and Muskoka have worked very hard in maximizing the resources for housing. But it’s not enough. There are waiting lists and we are losing rental units three times faster than every unit made available. Our districts need help.
Even before the pandemic, 1.6 million Canadians lived in unsuitable, inadequate, or unaffordable housing and an estimated 2.4 million households experienced core housing need in 2020.
Redefine affordable housing using a better, updated formula, that accounts for regional variations across the country and for Parry Sound and Muskoka.
Re-focus the core mandate of Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) on supporting the development of affordable, non-market and cooperative housing.
Yes, we can put the brakes on the climate crisis and finally have safe housing for everyone. If you resolve housing, you improve mental health with better food security and reduce pressures on healthcare.
Taking care of people is cost effective.
