ACORN Nova Scotia asked municipal candidates in North End Halifax, Dartmouth East, Dartmouth Centre and Spryfield where they stand on issues that matter to people who live in poverty. Things like affordable housing, slum landlords, and pay day loan sharks. Here are their responses.
Some excellent points were made at a well-attended press conference organized by low income people in the North End on the topic of poverty and the municipal election. It fell a bit on deaf ears, though, as just one reporter and one municipal candidate made an appearance.
Some questions ACORN Nova Scotia suggests you should ask as you chat with municipal candidates this Fall.
Gabriel Enxuga is a candidate for city council who puts poverty , free transit, decent and affordable housing front and centre. Nothing wishy washy about his platform.
