MP appointments great news for co-ops

Parliamentary Secretaries are Members of Parliament (MPs) who are appointed to assist a Minister. They play a key role on the files to which they are assigned. 35 Parliament Secretaries were announced earlier this week, and include two champions of co-op housing who have been assigned key roles:
Toronto MP Adam Vaughan is one of the Parliamentary Secretaries appointed to support the Prime Minister. This is exceptionally positive news for the Protect Co-op Housing campaign, as Adam is a particularly passionate supporter of co-op housing. He attended a Vote Co-op Housing event hosted at Windmill Line during the election campaign, as well as many other co-op housing events, both before and during the campaign.
Winnipeg MP Terry Duguid is appointed Parliamentary Secretary to Jean-Yves Duclos, who is the Minister responsible for the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). This is the portfolio where affordable and co-operative housing policy and programs reside. This is also great news, as Terry attended a Vote Co-op Housing event hosted by Village Canadien in September, where he learned about the expiring subsidy challenge. At the event, he shared with co-op members that he used to live at Westboine Park Housing co-op.
