The Liberal Party of Canada under Justin Trudeau have carved out a new role in cabinet to tackle housing.
Ahmed Hussen becomes Minister of Housing, along with Minister of Diversity and Inclusion, after previously serving as Minister of Families, Children and Social Development.
Many are calling Canada's housing situation a crisis and it was a key election topic. Prices are up as much as 30 per cent or more in parts of the country.
I'm sure that Mr. Hussen will be pondering on how to combat the housing crisis as his government imports 1.2 million new immigrants over the next three years.
