November 5th, 2008 - Toronto ACORN will be holding a Livable Housing Forum on Saturday, November 8th at 1pm at the Main Square Community Center (245 Main St., just south of Danforth). The event is a part of ACORN's campaign to License Landlords in Toronto in the most effective way possible.
Toronto's neighborhoods are riddled with sub-standard living conditions forcing tenants to put up with black mold, bed bugs, and a lack of repairs, cleaning and maintenance. Toronto ACORN members have been holding rallies and actions at slum-buildings around the city for 3 years to pressure the city to hold landlords accountable to their tenants.
City Hall is going to decide soon whether we get a strong licensing system or a weak one. Toronto ACORN members demand to be heard! We are inviting every city councilor in Toronto to attend the event.
