Join us for the presentation of the GOLDEN WEASEL AWARD!
The PTA’s Golden Cockroach
of the worst apartment buildings in Toronto are in Parkdale. City
Hall has rated restaurants - where we eat. We believe apartment
buildings - where we live - need to be rated as well.
We need your help to rate Parkdale apartment buildings. Just like
restaurants, they can be rated PASS,
FAIL or CONDITIONAL
To date, four of the worst buildings in Parkdale have been condemned
by the community.
The worst building in Parkdale receives the infamous
Golden Cockroach Award … and lots of publicity! The media
is very interested in this award.
And in 2004 the PTA introduced the
Golden Weasel Award for the person or level of government which has
weaseled out of its commitment to protect tenants against slum conditions.
If your Parkdale apartment or building needs work, call 416-760-2149
or email firstname.lastname@example.org!
- help you complain to your landlord in writing
- take photos of the problem so you have a record of it
- include your problems in a group complaint to the building
inspection office at City Hall
- help organize a mass inspection of bad apartment buildings
in Parkdale, including yours.
