(Toronto) June 6, 2013 – Tenant advocates call for change at Canada’s largest social housing landlord in response to a damning evidence of mistreatment of senior tenants contained in a report introduced this morning by the City of Toronto Ombudsman, Fiona Crean.
“The Ombudsman found Toronto’s most vulnerable continue to be afraid of losing their home,” said Grace Pluchino from Downsview Community Legal Services. “Everyone has the right to housing and TCHC has the right to collect the rent, the point in which we disagree is how they go about rent collection – which does not maintain the tenants’ dignity.”
