Housing, a priority ; for Québec solidaire

The parliamentary leader of Québec solidaire Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois was in Sherbrooke on Friday and met with citizens with the candidate in Saint-François Mélissa Généreux.

A week after July 1, the search for housing continues for tenants in the region. This will be one of Québec solidaire's priorities during the election campaign, said Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois during a visit to Sherbrooke on Friday.

After François Legault and Éric Duhaime, it was the turn of the parliamentary leader of Québec solidaire Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois to visit Sherbrooke with the candidate in Saint-François Mélissa Généreux.

The party undertakes in particular to build 50,000 social housing units, without giving a precise timetable for their entry into service. Québec solidaire also wants to control abusive rent increases and tighten the screws on tourist accommodation platforms like Airbnb.

Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois met with residents of Faubourg Mena'Sen on Friday.

After a visit to the Marché de la gare, Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois and Mélissa Généreux also met with residents of Faubourg Mena'Sen.

If the party is brought to power, Québec solidaire wants an investigation into the sale of the affordable housing complex for seniors, which Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois describes as irregular.

This transaction, one does not need to be Sherlock Holmes to see that it is doubtful. We are going to shed some light on this, we are going to set up a real transparent inquiry which will be public so that people can participate and regain confidence, because there is a breach of trust there, and that has no no pace, he hammered.

A resident of the Faubourg said she supported this statement.

We want to find the legislation that gave us the privileges that we had. That's what we ultimately want. Regardless of the means, these are straight means, these are means that speak of justice, so we cannot be against that, underlined Johanne Proulx, who is part of the Faubourg Mena’Sen tenants’ committee.

Recall that a few weeks ago, Prime Minister François Legault affirmed that after verifications, the sale of the Faubourg was legal. The former administrators of Faubourg have also always indicated that the sale of the non-profit organization was carried out completely legally.
