housing_affordability_gap

There is an affordable housing crisis in Canada -- one that we certainly also see in Saskatoon. 

Affordable housing should be a major issue in the upcoming federal election because it affects everyone -- not just those families who are either spending too much of their incomes on housing, forced to double- and triple-up, and/or live in substandard housing.
