Where’s Canada worst housing crisis?

In today’s Big Story podcast, it’s not in Toronto. Or Vancouver. Or even in the North. It’s on a tiny little island that happens to be Canada’s smallest province. How did that happen?

You probably think of Prince Edward Island as an ideal vacation spot. But more and more people are calling it home. And as you might expect, the island’s construction industry is not quite as adept at throwing up huge condos quickly as firms in bigger places. So where does that leave PEI’s growing numbers of citizens living in precarious situations? Hoping the government can fix this, and fast.
