Jenny asks if the federal government would commit to a 50-50 sharing with BC to house the homeless

On June 17, 2020 at the Parliament, NDP MP Jenny Kwan asks if the federal government would commit to a 50-50 cost sharing with the province to buy the assets necessary to house the homeless population:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Madam Chair, there is a crisis going on in my community. At CRAB Park, the encampment has just been displaced and the people have been forced to move to yet another park. Moving the homeless from one encampment to another is not the solution to addressing the homelessness crisis. Will the minister commit to 50-50 cost sharing with the province so that we can buy the assets necessary to house the homeless population?"
