NDP government would add 10,000 rental units

With federal elections due in the fall the leader of the NDP has been setting out plans that his party would introduce if they come to power.

Leader Thomas Mulcair said that housing would benefit from renewed provincial agreements on social housing and an additional 10,000 rental units across the country through the CMHC.

Mulcair said Saturday that middle-class people are being priced out of housing and said there is a nationwide housing crisis.

As an incentive to landlords and developers to provide affordable units, Mulcair said there would be a reduction in capital gains tax for those who reinvest money in the sector.
