Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Will the PM ensure predictable & long term stable funding for 7500 low income families?

On February 3, 2021, MP Jenny Kwan stood in Question Period to ask a question about rent subsidy funding for people living in housing cooperatives:

"Mr. Speaker, housing co-ops whose operating agreements expired prior to April 2016 were left to fend for themselves by the Liberals. Meanwhile, those after the cut-off could receive funding until 2028.

After ignoring their cries for help for five years, the government finally announced that they have one month to apply for up to one year of funding. This is not good enough. Using year-end budget slippage to address this critical issue is patchwork, not a strategy.

Will the Prime Minister ensure predictable and long-term stable funding for 7,500 low-income families, yes or no?"
