Mr. Speaker, the minister did not answer the question about renewing social housing agreements. I will put the question in a different way.
This government spends billions on its friends in big business while spending on social housing does not keep up with inflation or population growth.
In my riding of Chicoutimi—Le Fjord, more than 875 families spend more than 80% of their income on rent. How are they supposed to make ends meet? These families will spend another Christmas not knowing what is going to happen. Why does this government not give them a break by renewing the long-term management agreements for social housing?
