Kootenay-Columbia Member of Parliament Wayne Stetski rose in the House of Commons recently to speak about the many housing issues in his riding.

“Speaking with my constituents in Kootenay Columbia, it’s clear that we have serious problems with housing in our communities that must be addressed immediately,” Stetski said. “It is unacceptable that we have people living on the streets or in their cars. The best way to help people out of poverty is for them to have a place to call home.”

The speech was in response to an NDP motion that called on the government to invest in housing now.
