Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has his suit jacket off, his tie loosened and is looking rather relaxed after fielding questions from reporters about everything from personal security to NAFTA negotiations.
But during the Toronto availability, he wasn’t asked to touch upon one of the most pressing matters in the country — especially in urban Canada — and that’s affordable housing, not to mention the fading hope of young people ever affording a home.
While the Liberal government has identified affordable housing as a “substantial” issue and directed some $40 billion towards a National Housing Strategy, the question remains whether that money is flowing quickly enough with much of the funding back-loaded until after the next federal election.
