From London ACORN:
On Saturday November 28th, London ACORN members and tenants of 186 King Street who have been silently living with pest infestations and lack of maintenance and repairs, held a tenant speakout. Their landlord, Briarlane Rental Property Management, who boasts of owning and managing rental portfolio across Ontario, has been extremely negligent. Tenants need a management that responds to them. Currently, there are no standard office hours when tenants can approach them to get any issue resolved. On top of that, they enter tenants’ units without proper notice! There are even reports that a senior died of heat during summer as the building lacks proper heat/cold conditions. ACORN members and tenants decided to speak out against their landlord to highlight the issues they have been facing.
Close to 20 people joined the action. The action was led by London ACORN leaders Betty Morisson, Devon Mota and Nawton Chiles. Members were joined by the NDP MPP Terence Kernaghan.
Tenants are demanding that:
We haven’t still heard from the Property Management Company & Owner – Briarlane but we will keep the fight on!
