People from across the province marched onto Pauline Marois' office demanding more funding for social housing.
The demonstration, organized by the Front d'action populaire en reamenagement urbain (FRAPRU), attracted nearly 500 people.
Organisation spokesperson Francois Saillant wants the Marois government to include financing for 50 000 new social housing units across the province over the next 5 years in the upcoming budget.
"We are worried about the futur of social housing. We know for sure that the financing of 3 000 social housing units annually like this year is not enough", Saillant told CJAD.
FRAPRU says the plan would cost the province $ 800 million. Money, Saillant says, that would be easily be found in the banking system.
"The solution that we are proposing is to increases taxes for banks and other financial institutions [...] Remember that the six main banks in Canada made profits of $ 30 billion last year."
Law student Guillaume Loiselle-Boudreault was part of the march. Despite hoping for more funding, he believes there is a lack of political will.
"No, no I don't believe there is an openess from the government. I believe Marois is very closed", he declared.
