Hamilton Spectator: Tenants rally outside east Hamilton townhouse complex

Posted January 28, 2020

East end ACORN members and tenants of 240-280 Montmorency Dr. held a rally Saturday morning to raise the City of Hamilton's awareness about ongoing issues involving tenants being forced out of their homes.
 
On Montmorency Drive, the group said the new owner of the townhouse complex is allegedly trying to push tenants out and convert their units into condos.
 
Dayna Sparkes, an ACORN member and tenant in the townhouses, said the new owners EQB — Equity Builders Ltd. — have a reputation for this approach in other cities.
 
"It leaves low-income families with no place to go," Sparkes said.
