New Westminster: New Westminster Mayor Patrick Johnstone says the province’s housing targets for his city make no sense.
The province says New Westminster is among 20 new priority communities it has identified for housing targets over the next five years.
Johnstone says New Westminster has been a housing leader in the region for the last decade, and it’s the second-most dense city in the country.
He says the city is meeting and also exceeding housing targets during what he calls a critical rental vacancy crisis in the region, and the province should be funding already approved rental projects instead of adding more work for city staff.
