While the 2024 Federal Budget released Tuesday, March 28, 2023- offered some highlights for taxpayers. MP Gord Johns says he's disappointed by the lack of funds to address the housing crisis.
Johns noted from Ottawa shortly after the budget was released by Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland that he is "completely baffled" by the lack of a cohesive housing strategy by the Liberal Government. He noted the idea that free market housing will solve the housing shortage has never worked anywhere in the world.
"We have to make sure there is low and no-barrier housing and that needs are being met", Johns said.
