On behalf of Mayor Watson I attended the Big City Mayors meeting hosted in Toronto by Mayor Tory & Edmonton Mayor Iveson. The topic? Our urgent need for more affordable housing coast to coast to coast.
In discussions with Federal Minister of Families, Children & Social Development Duclos and the President of the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation we collectively stressed the need to address the issue of homelessness now.
With Mayors & Leaders from Toronto, Edmonton, Montreal, Gatineau, London, Vancouver, Mississauga offering the Ottawa perspective to Minister Duclos & Ontario Minister Ballard.
