ACORN members in Scarborough came out on September 13th and demanded politicians running in the federal election stand up for tenants. Many politicians are talking about affordability. Meanwhile, 3 apartments in Scarborough are at risk of demoviction. ACORN members ask who will protect affordable housing?
Members met outside 58 Glen Everest Road, where they invited all candidates. Only Guled Arale from the NDP attended. Members then marched to Bill Blair's office who declined to attend and asked him to sign a pledge to stop the demoviction.
On Friday September 17th, ACORN members from Glen Everest Road came out and spoke to Scarborough Community Council and demanding they stop the demoviction of their building.
Helen, Ron and Karla let councillors know that under no circumstances can they approve the proposal to knock down three buildings of working class homes and replace them with an unaffordable condo.
Next, members will turn out to a community consultation and bring the pressure onto the demoviction developer Altree.
