Province backs out of a plan that would see a new high rise with affordable housing

CBC News October 04, 2018

The province has backed out of a deal with the city and Mohawk College that would have seen a downtown high rise with affordable and social housing.

Collins said this is the second time the new PC government has withdrawn or cancelled affordable housing money. "Coupled with the cancellation of the green energy funding, we've lost millions of dollars in affordable housing funds," he said. And there's "no indication of how the new government plans to support local housing providers."
