Hamilton Spectator: Hamilton ACORN calls for rent control amid skyrocketing housing market

Posted March 17, 2022

Members of ACORN gathered out front of 119 King St. W. downtown to encourage passersby to sign a petition calling for rent control in the face of spiralling rents in the city.

The group, a strong advocate for housing reform, called for rent control, a full rent freeze until 2024, an end to tenant displacement, and more funding for social housing.
