You are completely wrong if you think that the ward 3 assoc hates renters/tenants or rentals at all. Like many westdale residents, this group of people are trying to get rid of slumlords and absentee landlords. Their only priority is collecting a rent cheque and cramming as many units as possible in their homes. Rentals are a fact of life. Some simply cannot afford or have no interest in the responsibility of owning their own property. What needs to happen is more effective enforcement of bylaws in this city. If every home in a neighborhood was allowed to be converted into a multi unit dwelling just because the house was large would have a huge negative impact on a neighborhood. This city has allowed ward 3 to fall into a black hole. It is the residents and home owners who are now demanding more from our councillor, our municipal enforcement depts to take back this area of the city. It is no longer acceptable as a dumping ground for low income, substandard housing. Good quality rentals can and will still exist but the ones that attract the huge volume of problem tenants are not!
