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 (hotline@torontotenants.org).

  • 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.

So the Ontario government is said to have released its... updated proposal to relocate the science centre. They suggest it would be cheaper to relocate the institution.

I don't know if the government has internet (I don't, not really) but looking at the "infrastructure Ontario" web page the most-recent comments by Michael Lindsay are two weeks old. Other posted information dates back to March!

Vaguely related: the government's privacy pages: https://www.ontario.ca/page/privacy-statement

Anyway in case you missed it Olivia Chow's comments about inappropriate housing on the Science Centre land were still making headlines late Tuesday evening. And all through Wednesday morning!

It's funny how the proposed overbuild of inappropriate housing on the other side of the street is mentioned, like, never!

Ergo the east side of Don Mills Road, south of Eglinton Ave. E.

By the way there is or was a large City of Toronto sign either on the science centre land (or about 2.3 cm to the north of it) heralding skyscraper condos. It was there for most of this year (2023); I have pictures on file.

To my (arguably un-educated) eye it is also passing strange how the pond behind the proposed location suddenly dried up. When is a flood plain no longer a flood plain?
