"The Liberal government must act quickly to prevent thousands of households from being affected by rent increases in a few days. Some people could end up on the street," said NDP Housing critic Marjolaine Boutin-Sweet (Hochelaga).
In a few days, several agreements between the federal government and social and cooperative housing providers will expire. New Democrats are calling on the Liberal government to honour its commitment to renew the agreements and make sure that families across the country aren't left out in the cold for the holidays.
