Petitions on the following signature are being collected by the CACV and residents of Verdun in the late-summer and fall of 2019. Thank you for your support.
Text of the petition :
Considering that 3,200 households in Verdun spend more than 50% of their income on rent;
Considering that it has been more than four years since any social housing has been built in Verdun;
We, the undersigned, ask that the Borough of Verdun:
– Establish an action plan that includes the purchase of real estate;
– Take a leadership role in the development of social housing on Gaétan-Laberge boulevard;
– Allocate city-owned land for the construction of social housing.
