ACORN is collecting hundreds of tenant responses to make sure that tenants are heard loud and clear. We need more affordable housing and tenants need to be protected... NOT just new powers for the private sector.
1 in 5 BC renters spends over half their income on rent. While there is rent control that limits rent increases to 2.5% plus inflation per year, it is tied to the tenant. This means that if the tenant moves out, the landlord is free to raise the rent as high as possible.
