Parliament Video: Question Period - Where’s the promise For Indigenous By Indigenous Housing Strategy?

On November 29 2021, MP Jenny Kwan asked her first Question in the new Parliament on Housing for Indigenous Peoples living in urban, rural and northern communities.

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, in Vancouver, nearly 40% of the unhoused are indigenous peoples. For the last four years, the Liberal government has claimed that it is working on a “for indigenous, by indigenous” urban, rural and northern housing strategy. So far, there has been no progress and it did not even bother to mention it in the throne speech. This glaring omission is a disgrace given the urgent need and its promise of reconciliation.

It is time for the Liberals to be honest. Is a “for indigenous, by indigenous” housing strategy no longer a priority for the Prime Minister?"
