Province buys another big whack of housing for the homeless

January 30th, 2009 · 4 Comments

Off to the 9:30 press conference this morning, where the premier and Housing Minister Rich Coleman are about to announce another big end-of-year buy of residential hotels and older apartment buildings for the third year in a row. All part of the plan to secure this private stock so it can be used for housing low-income, homeless or at risk of homelessness, people.

You can read my Globe story here but I only had some of the details. More will come out at the news conference, especially about some of the pilot projects the government wants to try with some of these buildings.
