A tenant, in Toronto, who took her landlord to court two years ago, was awarded $50,000 dollars in damages. This was after a year and a half of bedbugs, raccoons, frozen toilets and even a break-in.
The court’s decision was the good news, the bad news is she still hasn't been paid.
To quote, ''I am in awe of how there is so little enforcement in terms of tenants’ rights. If I owed my landlord $50,000 in rent I would have been evicted in an instant.''
One law for the rich and one for the poor.
