ACORN Canada Wins Big against Slum Landlords

British Columbia:  ACORN Canada’s campaign against slum landlords won a major victory in a landmark case that has led to $115,000 fine against Surrey Slumlord Gurdyal Singh Sahota for failing to comply with orders of the Residential Tenancy Branch (RTB) to properly maintain their buildings.

This is a precedent setting decision in that this case marks the first time the RTB has exercised the power to fine a landlord. To see the press coverage follow one of the links below:
