General Discussion

This section is for general discussions on any topic (while still remembering to post questions regarding tenant problems in their appropriate "Common Tenant Problems" areas).

Questions not Covered Here?

If you have questions about your rights as a renter or are having problems with your landlord, then there are several terrific sources of reliable information available:
  • The Federation of Metro Tenant Associations (FMTA) is a renter advocacy organisation here in Toronto that has many experts who can answer your questions either by telephone (416-921-9494), postal-mail, or e-mail (

  • If you have questions about hearings at the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB), either because you or your landlord has scheduled a hearing or you are considering filing a complaint (“tenant application”) at the LTB, there are lawyers and community legal workers who can help. There is no cost for their service. These Tenant Duty Counsel advisors are available at most LTB offices (COVID permitting), and are also available to speak with by telephone.

  • You can also speak with a layer at your local Community Legal Clinic (CLC) office. Your local CLC can provide you with legal advice or connect you with legal representation. Each CLC office services a specific area of the city; check their webpage for more information. It is usually best to visit during one of their “Drop In” times, if they have them. You can try telephoning, but these are busy offices, so it is usually faster to drop in than to call. You can find the CLC office that services your area by following this link.

Markham-area residents have been rallying against a proposed development plan there.

“the traffic will be 10 times worse”

“lack of new schools and daycare facilities”

“the absence of a healthcare expansion plan could lead to longer wait times”

“ would take a war time scale effort...”

Well, duh!

Note that ^ ^ ^ the above URL is stored and marked up funny - eg. what's with the big long ‘article_cb86f1e1-86d9-5a31-b2e7-a7bc0c22f06b’ serial code. It could have something to do with the publishers trying to hang on to, or just further track, their content. The Toronto Star started doing similar stuff just before 600+ people were eliminated at Metroland Corp. last week.

You may have an easier go of the ruckus over the secondary plan — which Cadillac Fairview apparently wants to modify, big time profits here, BIG time! — at

I think Markville is a poor choice for a name, eg. it's too similar to Markdale which is northwest of here, past Shelburne.
