New Vancouver Housing Group Pushing For Change
In this episode of #TheSaretskyShow Steve interviews Justin Fung. Justin is one of the members of the new housing activist group called HALT (Housing Action For Local Taxpayers)
HALT is a group comprised of local citizens who are lobbying for changes within the real estate industry. HALT is not just a snob group of renters who want cheap housing prices, in fact, HALT members consist of a majority of homeowners.
HALT would like to see more affordable housing options, including more purpose built rentals. In this interview I discuss how the group was formed, who’s in it, and some of the housing issues Vancouver currently faces.
