Sue’s perspective on housing supply and affordability:

“It is an honor to be a member of this panel as we explore, dig into and debate the causes, consequences, challenges related to housing affordability in B.C. By listening to citizens and organizations who are involved with or affected by housing affordability, we will identify opportunities, potential solutions and pathways to address housing affordability so that we can create an environment in BC where British Columbians have access to effective, affordable housing for themselves and their families. As the mother of three wonderful daughters, I know all too well the challenges that young adults and young families face in finding effective and affordable housing in the Lower Mainland. I am committed to building the best possible British Columbia for my daughters, their generation and seniors like me who may also face housing challenges. I look forward to hearing from British Columbians as we find chart the course for affordable housing solutions.”
