List of Housing Demands for the Ontario Liberals

Since it was elected in October of 2003, the McGuinty government has =
followed in the footsteps of the Harris government and continued to =
block the flow of almost $350 million in federal housing dollars to help =
low-income households find a good place to call home. This includes $245 =
million in federal funds promised in November of 2001 and another $100 =
million in February 2001.  Ontario is supposed to match those dollars - =
for a total of almost $700 million in new housing funding.  The McGuinty =
government in Ontario must:
=20
(1) Immediately honour its promise to fund 20,000 new affordable homes =
by honouring the commitment made in November of 2001 to match federal =
housing dollars in Ontario;
=20
(2) Immediately honour its election promise to fund 35,000 new rent =
supplements for low-income households;
=20
(3) Immediately move to increase income assistance (including Ontario =
Works and Ontario Disability Support Program) and the minimum wage; and,
=20
(4) Adopt the One Percent Solution, a comprehensive strategy to end =
homelessness and ease the affordable housing crisis by increasing =
provincial funding for emergency relief (including homeless shelters) =
and increasing provincial funding for new social housing (including =
supports for those who need them).  The One Percent Solution includes =
additional social housing units, more rent supplements, additional =
funding for emergency relief and more funding for supportive and =
alternative housing (including harm-reduction housing).
