In anticipation of a giant FRAPRU march from Ottawa to Quebec City September 2 to 29, under the theme "From Cities to Villages for Social Housing", the Sherbrooke Tenants Association is organizing a symbolic 8-kilometer walk on Saturday, April 7 between the office of Compton-Stanstead MP and federal Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau to the office of Sherbrooke MLA and provincial Minister Luc Fortin. In order to join their voices to condemn the deterioration of the living conditions of tenant households in Sherbrooke and throughout Quebec, 46 groups from 13 different Estrie sectors have supported the construction of 5,000- social housing units over the next five years, including 1,500 in Sherbrooke. These 46 groups also want to remind the ministers that the situation is unsustainable for 1,495 renter households who pay more than 100 per cent of their income for housing, according to the latest Statistics Canada census. There is also urgency for the 6,105 tenant households who pay more than 50 per cent of their income for housing or those who have to choose between food and medication, and so on.
