The City of Toronto is going to challenge the PC’s Bill 184 in court.
The bill makes changes to Ontario’s Housing Act.
Critics of the bill say it will make it easier for landlords to evict tenants. The province says it encourages tenants behind on their rent due to the pandemic to work out a payment plan with their landlord.
Toronto City Councillor Krystn Wong-Tam says the city solicitor will try to stop the 6,000 pending evictions set for July 31 and re-establish tenants’ right to a fair hearing.
