Prepare for wave of evictions as rent comes due, Ontario NDP warns

23

TORONTO — As rent cheques come due, some are warning that Ontarians should prepare for a wave of evictions now that protections put in place earlier in the COVID-19 pandemic have been lifted.

The Opposition New Democrats say that because the provincial state of emergency has ended, evictions can start back up again today.

The NDP also says newly passed legislation, Bill 184, makes it easier for landlords to evict tenants who fall behind on a repayment plan.

The governing Progressive Conservatives have said the bill will help, not harm, tenants.

A spokeswoman for the premier says the bill “reinforces to landlords the necessity of exploring repayment agreements and maintaining tenancies – rather than resorting to evictions.”

Ivana Yelich says eviction orders going out now are mostly ones that were pending before the pandemic began.

  1. Actually the correct pronunciation is ” Jug-meat””, so!!!!! ,Anyways the cerb needs dealing with also, I have been called back to work, as I was a daytime day person I am now working 20 to 25 hours a week, about half the hours I use to have, no longer qualify for cerb because I am making over $1000 a month, yet the student workers who worked less hours before are now working and getting cerb, while living at home with mommy and daddy, they have no mortgage, house insurance, vehicle insurance, city tax payments, and they still qualify for cerb. Apparently if you refuse to go back to work or quit your job you are not eligible for cerb!!! Something needs to be corrected on this whole cerb situation!!!!!!!

  2. Jug meet has the solution for trudope !!!!! Spend, spend, spend & then spend some more. These 2 cartoon characters are destroying this Country !!!!!!! And the koolaid drinkers see nothing wrong with that. My God !!!!!!!!!!!!!
