Will Re-Elected Liberals Help Canada's Housing Crisis?

Our recent federal elections revealed how much Canadians are worried about housing unaffordability - but post-election, will anything change?

With the Liberal party officially re-elected to once again form a minority federal government last week, I joined BNN's Greg Bonnell to discuss whether any of their proposed policies will actually tackle our high home prices.

You can watch the full video here, in which we discuss these hot topics:

  • How some of the policies that the federal Liberals have put forward will likely stimulate demand - and further increase home prices - as they are aimed at helping particular segments of buyers enter the housing market
  • Why the federal government has limited options when it comes to actually affecting home prices
  • The one key thing that our politicians have yet to tackle - a growing population that is outstripping the building of new homes
  • Where the fall market is likely headed
