I am pleased to see the Province continuing to build on the work of the Affordable Housing Commission.
The Commission was struck by former Premier Stephen McNeil to engage with experts and stakeholders across the province. The result of the Commission’s work was championed by former Premier Iain Rankin making possible the progress being made now.
The extension of rent control to the end of 2023 will provide the Province with some time to address the issue of supply in the affordable housing crisis. Urgency remains and I will continue to advocate on behalf of all my constituents, renters specifically, to ensure that all the people of Hammonds Plains-Lucasville have an affordable place to live.
