The NDP is promising to build 500,000 new affordable homes across the country in 10 years, if elected.
Watch Singh promise to prioritize affordable housing
"But right now our priority's investing in some of the crises that people are going through."
After kicking a soccer ball with some children, Singh announced that an NDP government would build 500,000 new affordable homes over 10 years, starting with an immediate investment of $5 billion.
While the actual dollar figure is set to increase, Giroux found federal spending on housing is slated to decline from 0.13 per cent of Canada's gross domestic product in 2017-18 to 0.11 per cent in 2027-28.
Singh painted the $4.5 billion for the pipeline and $14 billion in corporate tax cuts, which the government has said were needed to help Canadian companies compete with U.S. competitors following similar cuts down south, as a handout to the wealthy.
While Singh noted his previous promises to hike taxes on corporations and the wealthy, close various tax loopholes and crack down on tax evasion, he indicated all revenues from those measures will be put into social programs.
In the three full fiscal years since the Liberals came to power, however, the federal government has posted $52 billion worth of shortfalls even though the economy has had a solid run of growth.Read more: CTV News
If you like extremist dictators then vote for this guy! Ya sure. You are NOT building 500,000 homes for $5 Billion. You can keep repeating this, with broadcast graphics, it still isn’t going to happen. Try $50 Billion, or more. With politicians making promises, so ridiculous and attractive, what are the chances true & real issues will get addressed or corrected anytime soon. climate corruption taxes cdnpoli
Really? Where is all this money coming from? Let me guess, my taxes? Fabulous ideas but we as the middle class can no longer pay the taxes! Nope ! I dont think canadians trust politicians any more. NDP failed in making JustinTrudeau accountable - it didnt stand up and above all NDP has become home business with family members coming on board.
With whos Money Could not count beyond 500k.. and the contracts to build these homes go to NDP members or financiers.. novel way to earn kick backs 👏 'We know we can do a lot more' if only we have a lot more to do with. talking about imaginary money won’t get us anywhere 500k new affordable homes?

communism doesnt work jagmeet Here’s how that stacks up How about send everyone a fat check in the mail to help out. Somebody put Jagmeet's photo instead of this adorable little girl... When you have NO HOPE of forming a government, you can promise anything.
Jagmeet Singh wanted to ‘show an openness’ to Quebec with ad displaying him without a turbanThe NDP ad, which was voiced completely in French, aimed to gather supporters in the francophone province. Singh has long been a critic of Quebec's secularism law, Bill 21, which prevents the wearing of religious wear, including that of turbans, in positions of authority. I'm just curious, If they don't wear it, does God ban them from heaven? If so, is that a God worth worshiping? Seems odd God would have a dress code for people he gave free will to... If a 👨 came to you and said he heard a man in the sky but you couldn't, is it true? I’d wear a turban too if I had hair like that.... If u keep on wearing that u will lost u r hair
It's so easy spending other people's money. Canadians do not need more taxes. 🍁 Money pit Singh. 'Vote for me and you'll get to pay 500,000 homes worth of new taxes.' No thanks. fakenews where’s the money coming from? Who are these houses being built for? Does this mean Canada is paying to build houses and then sell them?
Amir is glad his elderly, sickly parents will have free place to stay when they immigrate to take advantage - errr, receive Canadian health care. Truly the land of opportunity! Starting to visualize the first episode of the new HGTV series: Jag the Builder. Could Canada afford to build 500000 affordable units
Did anyone ask him how he plans to pay for this?
