Tenants tackle rent hikes in Toronto’s High Park
Navigating the private rental market is hellish right now. Demand is outstripping supply, with costs continuing to skyrocket. So there’s really no debate whether there is a need to reinstate rent control during and between tenancies. All levels of government need robust investments for public and non-market housing options as well. While the current situation appears to be a hopeless one, tenant organizing as in the case of LHPTA can leverage renters’ collective power to demand important and necessary changes to their homes.
