Quand est-ce que le vrai monde va devenir une prioritÃ© pour ce premier ministre?
Le trÃ¨s hon. Justin Trudeau (premier ministre, Lib.): Monsieur le PrÃ©sident, je suis heureux d'entendre que le NPD n'est plus en train de nier l'importance des rÃ©parations, des rÃ©novations et de l'entretien. Effectivement, nous avons mis sur pied un plan d'investissement pour la StratÃ©gie nationale sur le logement, qui va aider Ã©normÃ©ment de Canadiens Ã trouver un logement plus abordable. Nous reconnaissons Ã quel point c'est un enjeu qui prÃ©occupe les gens. C'est un enjeu qui nous prÃ©occupe tous. Tout le monde a besoin d'un logement sÃ»r. C'est exactement ce pourquoi nous sommes en train d'investir.

Mr. Peter Julian (New Westminsterâ€”Burnaby, NDP): Mr. Speaker, that statement is unbecoming of a Prime Minister. He knows that what he has just said is false. We are talking about a profound crisis. Forty-six per cent of Canadians are $200 away from financial insolvency. They risk losing a roof of their head. A quarter-million Canadians will be homeless at some point this year. If the Prime Minister got out of his limousine and walked a few steps from Parliament Hill, he would meet homeless Canadians. More than 30,000 Canadians will be sleeping in the parks and main streets of our country tonight in frigid temperatures. What is the Prime Minister going to do to help them now?
Right Hon. Justin Trudeau (Prime Minister, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, I thank the member opposite for giving us an opportunity to talk about how we are going to help Canadians from coast to coast to coast with our new national strategy on housing and the new national housing plan. We know that reducing homelessness by 50% is something we can achieve and we are investing to do that. We know that making sure millions of Canadians have better security in terms of the places they live is something we are doing right now. We have invested tangibly and concretely over the past three years and, yes, we will continue to invest because we know there is much more work to do.
