Will Inclusionary Zoning Make Homes Affordable?

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

No matter how much housing is built in Toronto, it doesn't seem to make a dent in the level of demand for affordable units. Inclusionary zoning might be the answer. To discuss what it is and its merits, we invite Garima Talwar Kapoor, director of policy and research for Maytree, an anti-poverty non-profit; Mark Richardson, chief technology officer of Rich Analytics, and the technical lead for the volunteer project HousingNowTO.com; Laurie Payne, executive vice president at Osmington Gerofsky Development Corp; and Josh Matlow, city councillor for Toronto-St. Pauls.
