When is the right time to debate the monarchy and we're finding solutions to the affordable housing crisis

The anti-monarchy discourse heats up as Not my King chants result in arrests in the UK; meantime, Ontario’s education minister is ordering school boards to honour the Queen… and what is happening in the housing market - buy, sell? Is the current market affordable for anyone?
On The Brief, Dave is joined in studio by Tim Hudak, CEO of the Ontario Real Estate Association and Desmond Brown, Toronto Realtor and host of the podcast Sold In the 6ix to dive deeper into the conversation around housing, affordability and pricing.
