Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

Mr. Speaker, that is not true. There are 112 projects that went unfunded.

According to the Auditor General, the Liberals have spent billions to build homes that Canadians cannot afford. What is worse is that they do not even know if this money is reducing homelessness in our communities. The level of incompetence is breathtaking. We are in a dire housing crisis. The cold, wet weather is upon us. People are dying on the streets. They are desperate, and the Liberals have turned their backs on them.

When will the government do its job so that everyone has a safe and affordable place to call home?


Ahmed Hussen (Liberal) Minister of Housing and Diversity and Inclusion

Mr. Speaker, through our reaching home anti-homelessness strategy, we have ensured that tens of thousands of people were prevented from joining homelessness and others were actually housed permanently through our efforts. We welcome the Auditor General's audit of the chronic homelessness program, we accept all the recommendations and we are willing to implement them all.
