Measures in federal party platforms 'not enough' to curb GTA's soaring housing prices, expert warns

  Measures in federal party platforms 'not enough' to curb GTA's soaring housing prices, expert warns With the release of the federal Liberals' election platform on Wednesday, all three of the country's major parties have set out their key promises to Canadians. But one expert doesn't think much of their measures to make housing more affordable.it's not surprising that the parties are focusing on the problem. Recent opinion polls suggest affordable housing is at or near the top of the list of election issues for voters. The average price for all home types combined in the Greater Toronto Area as of July was $1,062,256 — up 12.6 per cent compared to July 2020, according to the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board.

Last night, the JCVI finally signed off on plans for third vaccine doses but they will only be given to half a million Britons with severely suppressed immune systems. MailOnline understands the JCVI is waiting on more trial data from UK studies before signing off on a mass booster programme. But Professor Anthony Harnden, one of the chief scientists on the JCVI, said today the group would do what' s best for children 'no matter what other people outside the committee think'. Only over-16 s are routinely eligible at the moment but younger children who are vulnerable to live with at-risk adults can be jabbed.

The rules of soccer require a player to throw the ball with both hands and not only one. As most of us know from experience you can throw the ball much farther with one hand than two. So why limit players to throwing with two hands? Where the ball went off the field is where it must come back on. This rule ensures that neither the attacking team is at an advantage or the defending team is at a disadvantage. Although this is a requirement of a throw-in, if you’ve watched soccer for any length of time you will have probably noticed that the referee can be quite lenient with this rule.

Le Mouv HLM is a Montreal non-profit organization created by and for youths in social housing. The group teamed up with the Office municipal d'habitation de Montréal (OMHM) to spearhead the league in a bid to provide a positive environment for kids and steer them away from negative influences, including gangs and drugs.

"I have to say it's great, I work hard, make friends and learn new soccer techniques," said Bouzertit.

An organizer of the league, Iman Youbi with le Mouv HLM, says being able to offer these kids this league is a great feeling.

"We are trying to do something positive with [the kids] and we thought that soccer will be a great idea because we know that youths love soccer and it was something that was asked by them," she said.

E. Living in a tent or caravan with your family or friends at weekends and on holiday is extremely popular in Sweden and there is a fantastic variety of special places. Most are located on a lakeside or by the sea with free bathing facilities close at hand. Jazz and dance clubs in the capital city are top quality and world-famous performers appear regularly. There are numerous cafes, beer gardens and speciality beer bars. Entertainment available includes opera at the recently opened opera house in Copenhagen, ballet and theatre at a number of places in the larger cities, and live music of all kinds.

In 2077 they voted my city the worst place to live in America. Main issues? Sky high rate of violence, and more people living below the poverty line than anywhere else. Can't deny it, it' s all true, but everybody still wants to live here. Some engineers realized that Cyberpunk was too complex of a game to run well on the seven-year-old consoles, with its city full of bustling crowds and hulking buildings. They said management dismissed their concerns, however, citing their success in pulling off The Witcher 3.

The league is just the start of a three-year project that OMHM says will benefit youths.

"We think the youth don't have a lot of chance to have activities really, and free activities," said Nathalie Morin, the director of social activities for the OMHM.

"So it's really important to give to them opportunities to do something together, because you know with the COVID, it was really hard for the families. They were just at home, you know, and with nothing to do."

Morin says the soccer league is just one initiative among a host of others in store for youths. The two groups are also looking at starting music sessions and artistic showcases for kids not interested in sports, and adding other sports leagues for those who are.

"It's all supposed to be free," Morin said.

As the city continues to battle the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccine passports are mandatory to play in the league. Youbi says she's worried that might cut down on participation, but she says this weekend's turnout and response from participating youths was a great starting point.

"It's a very nice feeling because we know that they are really enjoying it, they come to see us and tell us how they like it and they want more of it so we have the motivation to continue," she said.
