MLA David Eby

Conversation about affordable housing issues with provincial housing critic

David Eby coming to Courtenay for public forum

  • Jan. 8, 2016 10:00 a.m.

Affordable housing is a hot topic here in the Comox Valley – provincial funding is needed to increase the affordable housing stock. This Thursday, Jan. 14, at 7 p.m., join in the “A Home for Everyone” conversation about affordable housing issues with guest speaker, David Eby, BCNDP MLA and Housing Critic.

“As we have seen, providing land does not mean housing gets built,” said Ronna-Rae Leonard, former chair of the Comox Valley Housing and Homelessness Committee and Housing Task Force. “Government often gets bogged down over the question of who is responsible to provide housing, rather than facilitate its development.

“Having the NDP Housing Critic come to the Comox Valley is a great opportunity to breathe some fresh air into this stagnating issue of providing a home for everyone.”

The evening will be facilitated by Leonard, and North Island—Powell River MP Rachel Blaney will also be attendance.

Everyone is welcome – come and share your ideas about what the NDP should be doing and hear from David Eby about what the provincial NDP has in mind for affordable housing.

“A Home for Everyone” is being held at Creekside Commons Co-housing, 2202 Lambert Drive, Courtenay – accessible via 20th Street and Lambert Drive.

Parking is limited, so carpooling is recommended when possible.

For more information, contact Leonard at: ronna-rae@live.com.
