Build Housing For All! Nationalize Big Landlords!

Demand that Toronto City Council vote to expropriate vacant properties, use existing habitable spaces and create new housing. Why?  Because the housing crisis is severe. Skyrocketing rents are driving working class families, communities of color, seniors, and students out of the GTA, into debt, into unsafe or deplorable living situations, into the shelter system or on to the streets.  Those who can’t pay inflated rents are being exploited. The housing market is dominated by real estate and development speculators. The establishment is completely unwilling to fight for the solutions we need.  The 'inclusionary zoning' bylaw is woefully inadequate.
