I am deeply concerned by Schedule 27 in Ontario’s new Bill 276, which if passed, will punish Ontarians who record and share proceedings at tribunals, including the Human Rights Tribunal and the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB). Those who do will now face fines of up to $25,000.
Recordings by tenants have helped inform the public the LTB is conducting a dangerous eviction blitz in the middle of a pandemic. They have also provided evidence of breaches of procedural fairness.
On Thursday, May 13 from 6-7 P.M please join me and MPP Jill Andrew (Toronto—St. Paul's), Nina Hill of Kensington-Bellwoods Community Legal Services to talk about what these changes mean for tenants and how to fight for a fair LTB.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
