Ottawa ACORN Healthy Homes Rally

Ottawa ACORN members from across the city came together on July 11th to send a message to their city councilors – Ottawa needs Healthy Homes now.

They came with pictures of their homes – they wanted to know if the city councilors who refuse to take action for Healthy Homes would confront the consequences of that: by living in apartments that aren’t safe or clean.

New members Blaine Cameron and Ronny Mosuro spoke on behalf of ACORN about some of the things that tenants are forced to live with: dirty carpets, cockroaches, bed bugs, broken elevators, disrespect and harassment from landlords.
