  1. Unicorns and fairy tales spending money our great grandchildren will not be able to pay back.

  2. Really, for who?

    Just sit down and let the adults fix canada jag.

  4. And with what wages will they buy them? The $20 per hour you think is reasonable in Toronto?

  5. Money is no concern right Our grandchildren will all be rich {sarcasm]

  6. If you are going to bluff , you may as well go all in

  7. Total nonsense.

  8. Imagine him meeting Trump, Boris, and Putin as CANADIAN Prime Minister 🤪🤪🤪😜🤪 ok nuff joking 😂😁

  9. STOP spending money that our grand children will be slaves to pay back.

  10. So let’s say it cost 100k to build each unit that’s still 50 Billion. Might as well just use monopoly money

    And who’s money is he going to use to do this?

  12. Everyday the some old talking points of taxing the wealthy and the corporations. At the rate of all these spending announcements ( this one is incredibly expensive) the wealthy (if there still living here) will plead poverty and the corporations will just move entire operations to more business friendly countries. Just think of the cost of living going through the roof too!! Elections are the silly season every time!!

  13. Dont forget 2.65 BILLION Trudeau sent to developing countries to “Fight Climate Change”

    We don’t need government housing. We need to lower immigration, which has been driving up housing cost. Supply and demand economics.

    the NDP say they work for the working class , I call BS all this blue collar unionist keeps doing is paying for the trough feeders

  16. Give them a car and swimming pool too.

  17. And let 500,000 illegals in.

  18. At a median price of $250,000.00 (which is way under market price) that looks like a big number.

  19. Mr Singh please make promises that can be fulfilled.

  20. Building houses in unnecessary especially by the federal government. It can be better done by the provinces that enforce build codes. What we need is government to open up more land for development, lower regulations, and build more secure sources of water. The federal government should not be in the business of building housing.
