Quoted from the release:

Horgan and New Democrat housing spokesperson David Eby joined Coquitlam-Maillardville MLA Selina Robinson in Coquitlam, where older rental apartment buildings will be demolished to make way for residential towers along the new Evergreen transit line.

“Again and again, Christy Clark has rejected New Democrat bills to protect renters from renoviction and help people living in manufactured homes,” said Horgan. “As Christy Clark continues to neglect families and communities by ignoring affordable rental housing, it’s become clear that her government is only interested in fuelling the out-of-control property market.

“Stable, affordable housing is intimately linked to the health and success of families, workers and the economy as a whole. Christy Clark’s neglect of rental housing shows that she just doesn’t get it.”
