Federation of Canadian Municipalities release their wish list for recovery
" We have seen the impact across the country on cities and municipalities as they have seen their revenue go down. just like every other industry and how much this is rapidly changing. The biggest ask from this municipality is about $7 billion to reform housing. A part of a rapid housing initiative that the government has already announced. but they are asking for a significant more amount of money in order to convert hotels into affordable housing. This is the new vision some of these municipalities have for urban dense areas. They are also asking for more funding for transit systems to make them green of course and a lot of these cities are struggling right now to pay for their very expensive transit system."
