NDP Failures Have Made the Fraser Valley too Unaffordable

MLA for Abbotsford South Bruce Banman is calling for action to address skyrocketing housing prices in the Fraser Valley, which are 40 per cent higher compared to last year.

VICTORIA (February 14, 2022) – MLA for Abbotsford South Bruce Banman is calling for action to address skyrocketing housing prices in the Fraser Valley, which are 40 per cent higher compared to last year.

Citing comments made by the NDP MLA for Chilliwack Dan Coulter in March 2021, who claimed that his generation would be the last to own their homes, Banman criticized the NDP government for building only 5,269 of their promised 114,000 housing units. He also called for the NDP government to take action to increase housing supply and address the affordability crisis that is keeping young families in the Fraser Valley out of the housing market.
