East end ACORN members said the new owner is trying to push out tenants and convert units into condos
Mike Wood, chair of the tenant advocacy group ACORN Hamilton, urged councillors at their Jan. 14 planning committee to strengthen the city's property standards bylaw. Wood said tenants are living in unsafe conditions that city officials are ignoring.
ACORN members across the province are gathering on the second Thursday of every month to protest and demand the government increase social assistance rates and abandon plans to adopt stricter federal definitions of disability.
Residents of the apartment towers at 2880 and 2900 Carling Avenue rallied in frigid temperatures and blustery winds on Jan. 18 to protest deteriorating conditions and unprecedented increases to monthly rent in their buildings.
Hamilton’s planning committee has unanimously approved a motion to look at improving the property standards bylaw to protect tenants who are trapped in unhealthy and unsafe living conditions.
