Forward Momentum for Stand Up for Surrey - ACORN Canada

Forward Momentum for Stand Up for Surrey

Posted December 15, 2022

BC ACORN continued its forward momentum on the “Stand Up for Surrey” campaign by having a big Housing Forum on December 6th.

More than 70 ACORN members, and newcomers, got together at SFU Surrey for a forum about the campaign. Members shared stories about renting in Surrey, brainstormed ideas for the future direction of the campaign, and blitzed dozens of calls to Surrey Mayor Brenda Locke, demanding for an immediate review of the Standards of Maintenance bylaws.

The demands of the campaign are clear;

  • Immediate review and updates to the Standards of Maintenance bylaws
  • Implementation of a Landlord Licensing system
  • One to One Rental Replacement and Rent Stabilization, following in the lead of Burnaby

Surrey desperately needs major reform when it comes to tenant protection laws, and it’s a good thing BC ACORN is growing stronger each day to hold the City accountable to doing exactly that!!
