Parliament Video: Jenny in QP - People are sleeping in the streets now

On February 5th, 2020, Jenny ask the Prime Minister about the housing crisis:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, the chiefs want to meet with the Prime Minister.

The Liberals' national housing strategy was announced with much fanfare, yet they failed miserably. Saying they will end chronic homelessness in 10 years is just not good enough. People are sleeping on the streets right now.

In Vancouver alone, 40% of the homeless population is indigenous, yet their overall population is only 2%. So much for the Liberals' most important relationship.

We need to have a housing strategy for indigenous peoples and by indigenous peoples. Will the government increase the funding for housing to end the homelessness crisis in Canada once and for all?"
