Canadian Day of Action for Housing and Bill C-304

CANADA needs a plan to deal with a housing shortage that's reached crisis proportions, according to a coalition dedicated to drawing attention to the cause. On Tuesday, at demonstrations in cities across the country, including Winnipeg, housing advocates demanded that federal politicians support a private member's bill (Bill C-304) that would require Ottawa to develop a strategy to deal with the estimated 150,000 to 300,000 homeless people in Canada.
