The City of Peterborough gave a media tour of its Tiny Home projects. A Global News report provides much insight into how the project operates. The municipality is providing the majority of the $1.9-million annual operating cost.

Municipalities must provide housing; the provincial government doesn’t.

The fiscal challenge is that municipalities collect their revenue via property taxes.

Social programs should be funded by income tax and other forms of taxation.

St. Catharines’ mayor says his city will continue to add homeless shelter beds, but they cannot sustain these services on the property tax levy.

(Provincial and federal decisions have increased homelessness, yet many of us blame municipal politicians for the problem.)
