Government mismanagement has made seniors’ housing unsafe, says NDP

While in North Battleford Monday, NDP Leader Ryan Meili raised concerns about how the government has allowed the Valleyview Towers seniors’ housing facility to become unsafe for the seniors living there.  

“By making affordable housing for seniors less accessible, then filling the vacancies with hard-to-house individuals who need specialized supports, this government is manufacturing a crisis that erodes trust in the services we provide to those in need,” said Meili. “The Sask. Party is setting their own programs up for failure by mismanaging them. We know how important it is to ensure that older adults can live comfortably and affordably in thriving communities, but that’s not happening.”

“This is a government that has sold off social housing and cut the rental housing supplement, adding significant stress on people across the province who are struggling to pay their rent,” Meili said. “The Sask. Party government is letting these seniors down when they deserve a government that puts them first.”
