More low-cost homes

 

I would love to see legislation which required all new condo and apartment buildings to have one subsidized, low-rent home for every 50 units.

Your article expressed the concerns of many, that people on low incomes will be forced out of the areas they presently live in. I would love to see legislation which required all new condo and apartment buildings to have one subsidized, low-rent home for every 50 units. This would give people a chance to live well all over Nova Scotia. We now have pockets of poverty where low-income people are forced to live. With all of the new construction in Bedford, Dartmouth, Halifax and beyond, there can be many low-cost homes created in high-cost buildings.

Please contact your MLA about legislating affordable or subsidised housing in every new development. Let's give our MLAs a chance to redeem themselves with a humanitarian law which will dramatically improve the lives of thousands of Nova Scotians. Why not here? Why not now? —Terry Choyce, Bedford
