Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I want to thank both witnesses for their presentations.
It's an understatement to say that a housing crisis exists in Canada, as Mr. Richter said. Obviously, it exists in Quebec as well. This crisis existed before the pandemic, and it will no doubt continue. In April, 50,000 households in Quebec were unable to pay their rent, despite the CERB. This is an issue.
The current issue in Quebec is the signature of the housing agreement. We know that $4.5 billion has been spent on housing across Canada since the signature of the agreement. However, in Quebec, nothing has happened. The agreement is stalled.
Let's start at the beginning, Mr. Cimon. Quebec has a community-based and comprehensive approach to housing, which sets it apart from the rest of Canada.
Could you elaborate on this?
