Ottawa tenant wins landmark ruling on bed bug treatments

Quote
The owner of a Heron Gate high-rise has had its knuckles rapped by Ontario’s Landlord and Tenant Board and has been ordered to pay expenses to a former tenant for failing to properly respond to the tenant’s complaints of a bed bug infestation.

(in the Ottawa Citizen, hopefully you all can read it...)

I was able to look at the Ottawa Citizen item and yes, it was was a good one.

Notice how (at the bottom of the newspaper piece) a landlord suggests "dirty tenants are the problem" - a bit overstated, but you can bring in "visitors" via something as innocuous as a library book. (The librarian freaked when I showed her this picture.)

Those "canlii dot org" pages are strange - or perhaps I'm missing something here.

Typing in "xyz" as your search string can return literally hundreds of hits; in this case "bedbugs" delivered about 400 from the first link and 300 from the second one. Worse, the first field returned is an alphanumeric file labelling designation, not a "newspaper headline" or other, more recognizable, piece of information.

NB. One of the linked... pages in the thread takes you in a different, but still rather extreme direction in terms of the presentation of the contents of a list.
