Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Will the government tax excessive profits to fund housing for everyday Canadians?

On October 9th, 2020, Jenny rose and asked this question:

Jenny Kwan Vancouver East, BC

"Madam Speaker, Canadians are struggling to find housing they can afford. In fact, 2.5 million families are paying more than 30% of their income on rent. In Vancouver East, the homeless population continues to grow. Empty Liberal promises and announcements will not put a roof over people's heads. Meaningful action is required now. While Canadians struggled to pay their rent in a pandemic, the wealthiest walked away with $37 billion in profits.

Will the government step in for Canadians, tax excessive corporate pandemic profits and invest in housing for everyday people?"
