Day 10 – Frontier’s Advent Calendar

Wish List, Housing Affordability, Frontier Centre

Day 10 – Advent is the season of preparing for Christmas. Here at the Frontier Centre for Public Policy we want to tell you about some of the things we would like to see under our tree.


On Day 10 we wish that governments would replace rent controls (which strangle new private rental housing supply) with housing vouchers that would allow low income earners broader choice.
