Why our housing crisis is an environmental problem
Canada’s severe housing shortage is driving up prices for wannabe renters and homeowners. Yes it’s an economic and equity problem, but is it also an environmental problem? On this episode, three experts expose the environmental angles of the housing crisis, including how it fuels urban sprawl, stifles the green workforce and shortchanges Canada’s cleantech sector.

Guests: Tim Gray (Environmental Defence), Hannah Teicher (Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions), Mike Moffatt (Smart Prosperity Institute), Jennifer Winter (uCalgary) & Adria Vasil (Corporate Knights)
