M.P.P. Sandy Shaw – Hamilton West–Ancaster–Dundas Presents

Documentary Film


Housing prices are skyrocketing in cities around the world. Incomes are not. PUSH sheds light on a new kind of faceless landlord, our increasingly unlivable cities and an escalating crisis that has an effect on us all. This is not gentrification, it’s a different kind of monster.The film follows Leilani Farha, the UN Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing, as she’s travelling the globe, trying to understand who’s being pushed out of the city and why. “I believe there’s a huge difference between housing as a commodity and gold as a commodity. Gold is not a human right, housing is,” says Leilani.

This is a free event open to the public.  You are invited to remain after the documentary screening for a conversation with M.P.P Sandy Shaw and Guests.
