Parliament Video: Jenny Questions the Prime Minister on Housing, Homelessness & Urban Indigenous Housing support

On May 12, I asked the following questions:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"That does not replace spousal support and child maintenance, Prime Minister.

Across the country there is no national standard to address the homelessness crisis amidst this pandemic, leaving communities at heightened risk from COVID-19. Canadians who are homeless or living in substandard housing have no access to bathroom facilities for basic hygiene. Those living in crowded SROs and shelters cannot practise social distancing. The problem is particularly acute in my riding in the Downtown Eastside.

While the B.C. government has implemented an initiative to house some of the homeless population in empty hotels in the short term, support from the federal government is needed to secure permanent solutions post-COVID-19. Will the Prime Minister commit to providing matching funds and take the right to adequate housing seriously?"
