Stop Evictions and Freeze Utility Bills
Today, the Manitoba NDP is calling on the Pallister government to ensure that all Manitoba renters are protected from evictions and gives families a break on their utility bills.
Manitoba families are facing job losses - which means paying for rent or Hydro will only get harder.
The Manitoba NDP believe no family should be evicted because they can’t make rent. No family should have their heat shut off because they can’t pay the bill.
That’s why we’re asking the Pallister government to:
- Freeze evictions and foreclosures;
- Financial supports so landlords can let renters defer payments interest-free for 6 months and keep buildings clean;
- Stop all utility shut offs and give families the ability to defer payments on their utility bills for at least 6 months.
Now is not the time to punish families who are facing hard times. It’s the time to give people the supports they need to stay home and keep our communities safe.
