East Side Tenants Protest ‘Extraordinary’ Rent Increases

Recommended Posts

There are also many drug dealers who shoot other people in the face. What is your point? These criminal douchenozzles are OK because other criminal douchenozzles (who just happen to donate significant amounts of money to the BC Liberal party) do the same thing and get away with it much of the time?

It's two months notice, and the landlord has to give you at least one month of free rent. It's one months notice for bad conduct.

The issue is ultimately one of gentrification. The DTES is becomming a nicer area. Rent is going to go up in that area. And it's not just greed from landlords driving the process. It's young upwardly mobile adults (Yuppies) who are moving into these areas and paying the increased rental rates who are the other side of the coin.

If there are other issues like unsafe asbestos removal going on, that is a criminal matter. The people responsible should obviously be prosecuted.

Is it a social housing complex or not?

Should private property owners be obligated to provide affordable housing for the poor?

On the face of it, no. However I believe in the concept of "you break it, you buy it" and there is much "broken" in this city to the advantage of developers and dirty investors.

Well there is but it's about to smack them in the face when this property bubble comes crashing down in flames. Then they will be begging for tenants!

My old boss is starting a framing job on probably one of the first 5-story (or 6, I forget) wooden frame buildings in BC. I imagine those will become all the rage in the future.

I doubt the warranty would be still valid 30 years later.

Anything built 30 years ago would seem to be built poorly because the standards were less then.
