The Nova Scotia Common Front for Housing

by Glen Canning

The Nova Scotia Common Front for Housing held a two-day tent city protest for affordable housing on the Halifax North Common October 23rd and 24th. 

Organizer Capp Larsen said housing in the province should be based on need, not profit and that any public funds earmarked for the proposed $160-million dollar convention centre in downtown Halifax would be better used to provide more affordable housing for low-income workers, seniors and those with mental health issues.
