Endorsement Quote: "Affordable housing is fundamental to a good quality of life and self-determination. I believe that access to affordable housing is also key to any individual or family being able to realize their full potential and the ability to fully take part in and contribute to their communities. The Starts With Home Campaign provides valuable insight for the City of Ottawa to help address the housing crisis we are facing and help all our residents find housing that meets their needs at price they can afford."

1. Stop the Loss ✔️Tenants Protections ✔️Housing Acquisition: "This would be a great way to make it easier for not-for-profit housing corporations to acquire properties to provide affordable housing for vulnerable people and others who are in need. Not-for-profits have a much more difficult time acquiring financing through traditional lenders. This arrangement would allow for them to pay back the city over a longer period of time at a lower interest rate."
2. Create More ✔️Inclusionary Zoning ✔️Increased Budget: "The city has already committed to taking this action and I would support the next council following through on this commitment."
3. Preserve the Quality ❓Landlord Licensing: "I support this in theory; however, I would be concerned that doing this may discourage smaller operators from renting out their properties or space within their properties. I would like to know more about the costs and responsibilities associated with this before fully supporting a plan that would require all landlords of any size to obtain a license."

1. Stop the Loss ✔️Tenants Protections: "I think there is merit to this, but this must be done with conjunction with landlord protections at the same time."
✔️Housing Acquisition: "I support this platform, this strategy has to work in conjunction with a strong federal and provincial recognition that foreign ownership of residential properties needs to cease asap. Ownership by large multinational investment firms also needs to be addressed."
2. Create More ✔️Inclusionary Zoning: "I do support the discussion on this topic. To fully support this i would need more information on the specifics of the policy."
❌Increased Budget: "Any increase to budget requires further discussion and cost benefit discussions on the exact costs and savings from other services this would impact or reduce usage on."
3. Preserve the Quality ❌Landlord Licensing: "I see this as more overhead. I would be open to discuss."
✔️Ombudsperson: "Yes, at a provincial level i would endorse this."
