The Parliamentary Budget Office says that under Trudeau’s plan, spending on affordable housing is 19% less than under Harper’s plan as a percentage of GDP.
NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh:
“Across this country, I hear from people struggling to keep a roof over their heads. We need to do better to make sure that everyone has a safe and affordable place to call home. That’s why New Democrats will make affordable housing a priority, and work with communities to expand and improve existing housing, to reduce energy demand, create jobs and save people money every single month.”
