Protect Tenants: Stop the Speed Up of Evictions

TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:

WHEREAS recent reports show that the Ontario government plans to introduce new laws that would allow landlords evict tenants faster and use private bailiffs to enforce eviction orders; WHEREAS there is an affordable housing and rental crisis in Ontario;

WHEREAS many tenants who have lived in their units for years are being pushed out of their homes through renovictions and other loopholes, allowing their landlords to double or triple the rent;

WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to act to: reject any proposed changes that give landlords the power to evict honest tenants more quickly; close all loopholes that give landlords incentive to drive people out of their units so they can rent at new, much higher rents, including action in above guideline rent increases and renovictions; and commit to immediate action to increase access to affordable housing in Ontario by building more affordable housing, social housing, supportive housing and increasing rent supplements, etc.
