Housing as a Human Right (15:20 mins) – In 2019, Canada signed in law legislation recognizing the right to housing. Yet many people in Canada live in homes that are inadequate or unaffordable, and many others are chronically homeless. In Regent Park, despite a massive redevelopment and doubling of the resident population, no ADDITIONAL public housing units will be built. Is the notion of, "housing as a human right" just a symbolic one? We talk to researcher and educator, Emily Paradis to set the framework for the discussions to follow.
