After months of citizens voicing issues over the sale of the Lions Position housing complicated and possible hire will increase, the province is stepping in to take a look at and quell the ones worries.
Households Minister Rochelle Squires introduced the federal government, via Manitoba Housing, will supply $1.2 million in hire subsidies for citizens.

Squires says Manitoba Housing is getting into right into a two-year hire complement settlement with the brand new proprietor, an Alberta-based company. She says this may increasingly be sure rents don’t building up for any resident for the following two years whilst a brand new investment type is being evolved.
The 287-unit house noticed its federal and provincial investment dry up in 2018 after a 35-year running settlement expired.
Citizens held a rally on January 19, voicing issues over the potential for hire will increase with the sale.
