A new campaign, "The Naked Truth About The Affordable Housing Shortage in Peterborough", has begun.
Some of the stats from a teaser press release that went out:
Naked Truth #1: At 1,500 families, Peterborough has one of the longest waiting lists for affordable housing.
Naked Truth #2: 25% of Peterborough tenants are paying more than half of their income on rent. In some cases, people are paying up to 80 percent of their income on rent.
Naked truth #3: More than half of Peterborough renter households can't afford a one-bedroom apartment.
According to the release, "there is hope and one group of Peterborough women are taking matters into their own hands."
