East Hamilton Rent Strike
On May 1, 2018, tenants from the Stoney Creek Towers, four high-rise apartment buildings in east Hamilton, declared a rent strike. Tenants are withholding rent until their landlord, Ottawa-based InterRent Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), agrees to their demands: 1) Cancel the Above Guideline Increase in rent and 2) Make repairs. Support the tenants by donating what you can afford to the rent strike defense fund.
