Listen to “The Intersect: The Rent and Housing Crisis (Housing Party ep5)” on Spreaker.

How will Canadians cope with rising unemployment, a housing crunch and paying rent? How should government handle the economic recovery, including proposed bailouts for big corporations? And what is the future of affordable housing in Canada?
On the last in a series of Unpacking the News summer episodes exploring how the pandemic interacts with social issues in Canada, David DesBaillets returns with the fifth edition of Housing Party to speak with poverty activist, Tiny Home Alliance Canada Executive Director and Brockville City Councillor Leigh Bursey.
