National Housing Day in Winnipeg a Success

The Right to Housing’s rally on Tuesday was a qualified success. Our theme was very current, “Homes not Jails”, referencing Bill C-10 that will cost us all a lot of money for little or no benefit. The National Housing Day events served two key purposes: 1) to rally our own supporters and celebrate our freedom to do it together in solidarity; and 2) to bring the issues of Canada’s housing shortage to the attention of the general population.

The rally ran very smoothly. The speakers were excellent. The weather was sunny and mild. The police escort was friendly and cooperative. Thank you to all the supporters, organizers, and everyone who came out, and all of those who wanted to but were unable.
