NDP Housing Critic Gerry Rogers

Since she was first elected in 2011, St. John’s Centre MHA Gerry Rogers has been an outspoken advocate for the desperate need the province has for a strategy to address the many housing needs faced by the people of the province.

The province’s economy is slowing, in part because of government budget cuts, says NDP St. John’s Centre MHA Gerry Rogers. Among those hurt the most by the budget are young Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. As their prospects fade, she adds, we run the risk of them moving away, many of them forever.
