Election 2021: Ways to Engage

Election 2021

When Canadians cast their ballots on Election Day one of the top issues on their minds will be affordable housing. Since the start of the pandemic, home prices have skyrocketed 38%, leaving even more people in the GTA unable to find a safe, decent affordable home. If we want to see real change on this issue, it’s going to take asking for real political leadership.
