The Ontario government's latest housing strategy, the Helping Homebuyers, Protecting Tenants Act helps renters avoid bad-faith evictions and gain access to air conditioning, but also encourages sprawl, endangers farmland, and puts redevelopment pressure on rental housing.
Mitzie Hunter is resigning from her seat at Queen's Park to fully commit to a run at becoming Toronto's mayor. That also means her riding of Scarborough-Guildwood is now heading for a byelection with Liberal MP Nathaniel Erskine-Smith signaling his intention to run. However, just because they're in the same party doesn't mean it'll be an easy win. Many, including other Ontario Liberal hopefuls, may want to run in the riding, which could make this interesting.
Should polls be banned shortly before an election? Ontario's chief electoral officers seems to think so, but the federal government attempted to implement a polling blackout law back in the 1990s, which ultimately failed. Steve Paikin and John Michael McGrath poll one another on their thoughts on this idea.
