Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Will the Prime Minister adopt the Recovery For All plan to end the housing crisis?

On September 24, 2020, I stepped up in the House to ask:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, the Liberals created the housing crisis in 1993 by cancelling the national affordable housing program, and the crisis has only gotten worse with the pandemic. Vancouver East has the largest homeless encampment in the country. Reannouncing the 3,000 housing units is not good enough when 235,000 Canadians face homelessness each year.

The ongoing failure to have an indigenous-led urban, rural and northern housing strategy is shameful. The all-talk-no-action approach is not worth the paper it is written on, without meaningful action. Will the Prime Minister adopt the recovery-for-all six-point plan, to end the housing crisis?"
