TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY
Whereas housing is a Human Right.
Whereas rental rates in Toronto—St. Paul's and across Ontario are increasingly unaffordable.
Whereas we need to protect our affordable housing stock in Ontario.
Whereas paying to maintain a building should be the responsibility of the landlord.
Whereas Above the Guideline Rent Increases can increase rent well over what people can afford.
Whereas inaction on this issue will mean thousands of Ontarians will be forced from their homes.
We the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to: immediately review Above the Guideline Increase rules and regulations and ensure that rental housing remains affordable in Ontario.
