Start Your Engines…

  9 November 2008

So, here we go again. Time flies. Seems like barely two years ago that I was writing… Oh. Wait a minute.
Anyway, the start of a new federal election campaign seems a good time to sit back and take a long, sober look at what’s changed on the housing scene since the last election. A chance to take stock of progress and setbacks, triumphs and defeats, raging debates and emerging consensus on an issue that is central to all our lives, our economy, how our cities and towns build strong communities or fall into the division of have and have not and whether or not Canadians have a secure and affordable home base from which to learn and grow and contribute to this country. So, what’s been happening on housing at the federal level?
Hope I didn’t bore you with the details. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s take a look at what needs to happen and what we as co-op members should be demanding of those who would represent us in our nation’s capital.
