New Democrat Leader John Horgan was in Coquitlam this morning for a housing announcement where he pledged to build many more units of affordable housing and prevent the BC Liberals from abolishing the housing speculation tax.

But a statement from the Liberals says the NDP government has only completed a fraction of the homes it planned to build and just five per cent of those are affordable rental housing.

Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson focused on the homelessness crisis during a stop in Vancouver's Yaletown neighbourhood this morning.

Green party Leader Sonia Furstenau doesn't have any public events today but continues to meet with organizers and constituents in her Cowichan Valley-area riding.
