Sun attacks Federation of Metro Tenants' Associations
The Sun's Sue-Anne Levy, landlord lobby in tow, is already hot to trot to try to get the city's tenant advocay programmes defunded, chief among them the Federation of Metro Tenants' Associations tenant hotline and outreach and organizing service which helps tenants fight above guideline increases.
In a full page attack, Levy quotes landlord advocate Harry Fine (a paralegal and former Landlord Tenant Board adjudicator who now represents landords in cases) who calls for the FMTA and the Centre for Equality Rights in Accommodation (CERA) to be defunded claiming they're not needed. Kind of reminds me of pro-management lawyers who claim unions aren't needed anymore.
She also quotes an anonymous "tenant activist" who is anti-FMTA.
Ford's not even mayor yet and the attacks on the poor and even not so poor who can't afford to own their homes has already begun.
