Everyone has a right to decent housing. We in Parkdale-High Park lead the way. We preserved and legalized hundreds of affordable dwelling rooms, making our neighbours safer and more secure in their homes. We created a fund to buy low-rent private housing so developers don't buy the land and evict our neighbours. This local project has been so successful that the City has copied this program across Toronto. We are building the Parkdale Hub, which will create 173 new housing units and increase social services for the Parkdale community. There are many more examples including Edmond's Place, modular housing in south Parkdale, new affordable and supportive homes at 11 Brock, and so much more.
I'm proud of our work, but there is much more to do.
