Globe: Mayors push for more funding following disappointing government fall economic statement

NDP MP Jenny Kwan took issue with the fact that even the $1-billion in funding that was in the update is not budgeted until after April 1, 2025.

“People are living in tent encampments, being evicted from their homes or trapped paying sky-high rent and the Liberals continue to delay and disappoint in their fall economic statement,” she said during Question Period, describing the funding timeline as “absurd and completely out of touch.”

Mr. Fraser responded, saying existing programs are currently available.

“What we’ve done in the fall economic statement is demonstrate our long-term commitment,” he said.
