In the 2018 Toronto Municipal Election, 34% of all campaign contributions came from people with ties to the development industry. Many important decisions on the right to housing are being influenced by these donors, to the detriment of regular people in Toronto.

ACORN has put out a report looking into these developer donations, to get more transparency on the issue ahead of important votes on housing in the next few months.
