NDP Housing Critic Gerry Rogers (MHA, St. John’s Centre) had a suggestion for government today on one way to help seniors attempting to deal with the current and growing housing crisis they face.

 

MR. SPEAKER: The hon. the Member for St. John’s Centre.

MS ROGERS: Mr. Speaker, we are facing the worst housing crisis in our Province’s history and the victims are growing. The sexual exploitation report that government tried to hide for years told us of young people having to sell their bodies for sex so they could have a place to sleep.

NDP Housing Critic Gerry Rogers (MHA, St. John’s Centre) says government must deal with the provincial housing crisis – and the first step would be to find out exactly how big the problem is.

 

Members of the NDP Caucus will attend the 8th annual CBC and Newfoundland and Labrador Housing and Homelessness Network pancake breakfast events at the Battery Hotel and Smitty’s Restaurant (the Courtyard Marriott, Duckworth Street) in St. John’s tomorrow.
