Mr. Steve Butland (Sault-Ste-Marie):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of State for Housing. Despite his statements during the recent election campaign that there are no homeless in Toronto-and I trust he will not add Ontario and Canada to that list-there is a desperate shortage of subsidized housing in Ontario. In some areas there is a two-year waiting list, and that list will grow unless the Government acts immediately.
I would ask the Minister to reaffirm his predecessor's commitment-I repeat, commitment-to increase, by 7,000, subsidized housing units in Ontario immediately.
