Mr. Speaker, the budget does nothing to address the homelessness crisis.
Report after report from community after community has called for federal action. Every day when we walk city streets, drive by overpasses, or let someone surf on our couch, our hearts tell us we are failing. What is the Conservative response? Pilot projects, nothing to actually build homes and nothing to make housing affordable.
Conservatives give corporations tax cuts years into the future, but even in a crisis will not fund a long term national housing program. Why not?
