The project has been shovel-ready since the fall of 2008 and would see $7 million put into supportive housing in the region. Despite reassurances from Minister Coleman that this project is a priority, actual dollars have yet to be seen.
During filming, Mungall enlisted the help of local housing advocates, City Councillor Donna Macdonald, and people who would benefit from this supportive housing.
“Anyone can view the video trilogy on my YouTube channel or by following the links from my website. Most importantly, the Minister for Housing doesn’t have to make a special trip to see that local seniors and the lot on Andersen Street are ready and waiting for housing. He can see them just by clicking “play” on three videos” says Mungall.
