Each week, we’ll bring you a panel discussion with Canada’s leading journalists, columnists, politicos, and change makers discussing what’s happening in the newsphere.

From coast to coast to coast Canada is facing a housing crisis. The issue occupied the discourse in the 2021 federal election and is top of mind for Canadians facing a change of address, whether renting or buying. With costs continuing to soar and interest rates below inflation, what can be done, and what is the government's role in helping homebuyers and renters?

We're joined by National Post columnist Sabrina Maddeaux and activist and former Libertarian Party of Canada leader Tim Moen to debate solutions.
