Great news: Just moments ago, a final amendment was made to Bill C-304 (draft legislation to create a long overdue national housing plan for Canada) – and the bill is headed back to the floor of the House of Commons for third and final reading. A majority of MPs backed the bill during its first and second vote, but it could still die on the order paper if the swirling talk of a federal election triggers an end to the current Parliamentary session. The bill requires the federal government to consult widely over six months and create a robust national housing plan that meets Canada’s international housing rights obligations.
