TORONTO — Ontario Liberal Leader Steven Del Duca has issued the following statement:
“This is Doug Ford’s fourth Conservative housing plan since he was elected with a promise to fix the housing mess. He’s only made the problem worse.
Under Doug Ford’s four Conservative housing plans, the average Ontario home price has skyrocketed by nearly $500,000, surpassing the $1 million mark for the first time in Ontario’s history. Median rent costs have gone up over 11 per cent in a year after Ford cut rent control.
The latest Ford Conservative plan has:
No help for first-time home buyers
No investments in affordable housing
No rent control
No zoning reform
No taxes on developers sitting on land
Ontario Liberals will address this crisis once and for all by acting on these priorities. We look forward to sharing our full plan in the coming weeks.”
