The Thompson Local News


Niki Ashton is once again pushing Ottawa for action on housing in First Nations communities.  

 

Our local Member of Parliament, who will shortly be celebrating a decade as our elected representative, recently spoke in the House of Commons about a visit she made to Red Sucker Lake over the summer. She said that she met a mother who told her she was happy that it was summer, as it meant that she could stay in her partially tarp-covered, bathroom-less house. 

 

Ashton then asked Prime Minister Justin Trudeau why his government is failing First Nations people across the country and failing to act on the housing crisis that Canada is facing.  

 

The Prime Minister responded by saying that his Liberal government is pushing forward with their $40B national housing strategy to ensure that “more Canadians have affordable and safe places to live”.
