“We see housing as underpinning the entire health of a community”- Catherine Fife
In mid-August, the CKMS newsroom caught up with Kitchener-Waterloo NDP MPP Catherine Fife to critically discuss new legislation passed in the Ontario legislature — the Promoting Affordable Housing Act. The discussion deals with implementing the act in Waterloo Region with funding and zoning options available to municipal governments including promotion of inclusionary zoning, and ending appeals to the OMB, as well as some of weaknesses in the legislations around gentrification and renters rights.
This Interview was originally aired on August 19th on CKMS Community News, a program of the CKMS newsroom at 100.3fm, SoundFM.ca in Waterloo Region. It was undertaken by Rachel Avery.
