The City is launching a pilot study that proposes a zoning approach to Multi-Tenant Homes (Rooming Houses) and licensing requirements. Ward 39 is included as a pilot study area. I am opposed to our ward being included and I strongly believe Rooming Houses should not be studied at all. Rooming Houses negatively impact the character of our neighbourhoods and the effectiveness of first responders to respond to calls. Rooming Houses present a danger to the tenants living in those properties. Tenants, especially new Canadians and low-income families, must be protected from Rooming House landlords who have no regard for safety standards including violations of the fire code.
I encourage residents of Ward 39 to attend the City’s public meeting on this issue at the following date and time:
Wednesday, June 21st, 2017
