Councillor Janice Lukes (South Winnipeg-St. Norbert Ward) has been working on the rental housing issue with residents, the City of Winnipeg, and many other stakeholders in the community since she was elected in Fall 2014.
This is a complex, multi-layered issue BUT it is a common issue for residential communities in close proximity to a university.
Councillor Lukes has an informative website highlighting her activities, community meetings and extensive media coverage on this issue. SEE: http://janicelukes.ca/ward-priorities/rental-housing/
