Thorncliffe Park tenants call for May 1 rent strike
« on: May 03, 2023, 04:12:36 pm »
from City TV News-

On Sunday afternoon, tenants of 71, 75 and 79 Thorncliffe Park Drive held a rally, kicking off what they describe as a rent strike as they plan to withhold rent starting May 1.

The tenants contend that the building’s owners – Starlight Investments and PSP Investments – have been seeking rent increases of 4.2 per cent in 2022 and 5 per cent or more in 2023.

“We can’t afford the kind of rent increase they are asking for,” rally organizer Abdelaziz Dardake tells CityNews. “And we’re trying to send a message to the landlord that enough is enough.
