Conservative Affordable Housing

Harper announced that a Conservative government would spend $200 million on "experimental" tax incentives to encourage builders to create more Conservative affordable housing because Liberal affordable housing unavailable.
How it could be, if housing minister Joe Fontana announced more funding for affordable housing in April 25, 2005.

The announcement was made at the signing of Phase II of the Canada-Manitoba
Affordable Housing Initiative by the Honourable Reg Alcock, Minister Responsible
for the Canadian Wheat Board and President of the Treasury Board, on behalf of
the Honourable Joe Fontana, Minister of Labour and Housing; and the Honourable
Christine Melnick, Manitoba Minister of Family Services and Housing.
And on March 15, 2005 they announced that 75 affordable housing proposals in Ontario get early stage funding:
The Honourable Joe Fontana, Minister of Labour and Housing, made the
announcement today, saying the selected applicants in Ontario are among 204
housing proponents selected from across Canada. The selection was made following
a call for applications issued in November 2004, which resulted in 428 proposals
being submitted from across Canada.

I know, it is a political trick. :)
