“F” Is For “Free Ride”

[Toronto Star] Yet another report, this one from low-income people themselves, has blasted the federal government for failing to do enough to provide affordable housing in this country.

ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, gave the federal government an F in all four housing measures it analyzed in its report, released last week.

They include: meeting its promises to the provinces; not committing to renewal of the three existing federal programs that include a homelessness strategy; and failing to adopt a national housing strategy.

An Ontario Human Rights Commission report argued housing is not only a need but a right and also called for a national housing strategy.

The rest.
