CTV News: Halifax tenants discuss low income housing issues

Nova Scotia ACORN

Posted June 18, 2018

NS ACORN Members gathered Saturday to discuss the unacceptable housing and landlord issues in the Halifax Regional Municipality.

NDP Housing Representative and MLA for North End Halifax, Lisa Roberts, spoke to these issues and encouraged members to keep pressure on for reintroducing rent control, landlord licensing and tenants rights in the city.

Members also had the chance to nominate and vote for HRMs #1 slumlord and the winners included METCAP Living, Metro Regional Housing Authority and CAPREIT. After voting, members are eager to continue the fight against slumlords and are pushing for rent control and landlord licensing in the HRM!
