Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I also thank Mr. Pawson and Mr. Beaudoin.
First, I would just like to respond to my government colleague who was wondering if the government has done the right thing in the last two or three years with respect to housing.
I'm going to mention a few facts about the housing situation in Quebec at the moment. Housing needs are compelling: 500,000 households spend more than 30% of their income on housing; 300,000 households spend more than 50% of their income on housing; and 82,000 households spend 80% of their income on housing. These are concrete facts, and they are happening in Quebec right now. The situation is not rosy, especially since some of the money spent on social housing, in particular, is sleeping in Ottawa—this money has not been paid to the provinces.
Mr. Beaudoin, I want to set the record straight. When it comes to housing, language is important, especially when governments around the world are telling people to stay at home.
Could you explain the difference between affordable and social housing?
