2007 Fall Newsletter

Housing Opus!

Editor’s Note: May 25, 2007, was the Official Opening of Six Affordable Housing Projects in Waterloo Region – The Rockway Gardens Village was one of the six. The six housing proponents were each allotted two minutes on the program agenda. We are happy to share Martin’s two minutes with you! Please keep in mind that our current Federal government has not allocated any new money to affordable housing. The money we received for The Rockway Gardens Village was previously budgeted by the former Federal government. Thus the choice of words “Requiem” and “Rhapsody” were intentional in terms of saying it would be great if the current government would keep the Federal-Provincial-Territorial Housing Agreement alive (Rhapsody). “Requiem” on the other hand, implies a funeral for housing.
