Former NDP housing ministerial aide — now Coquitlam councillor — blasts David Eby’s housing plan

VICTORIA (November 29, 2023) – The NDP is under scrutiny as a former senior ministerial aide in the Ministry of Housing, Matt Djonlic, now a Coquitlam City Councillor, has delivered a blistering critique of David Eby’s flawed housing strategy. During a recent Coquitlam City Council meeting, Councillor Djonlic openly called out Coquitlam NDP MLAs Selina Robinson and Fin Donnelly for their neglect in advocating for essential infrastructure funding in their community.

During the meeting, Djonlic warned of potential “astronomical property tax increases” due to the NDP’s flawed housing legislation, jeopardizing essential Coquitlam infrastructure funding for the Burke Mountain Recreation Centre, Coquitlam’s Affordable Housing Reserve Fund, and several affordable housing units.

The BC United Caucus calls on Selina Robinson and Fin Donnelly to acknowledge the local repercussions of their housing legislation and provide a clear explanation of its impact on critical infrastructure and affordable housing for their Coquitlam constituents.
