Here is the story that he was referring to: 

⭐ Trudeau government to crack down on people who profit from Airbnb 

Tuesday’s federal fiscal update is expected to include a bid to quash the incentive to flout local short-term rental restrictions. (Toronto Star)

How do they plan to do that? According to rumours, because the Federal Government usually stays out of property issues and leaves them up to Provincial and Municipal Governments, they are going to use the CRA to change tax rules for what you can expense associated to short term rentals.
