Parkdale Rent Strikers to Michael Lax: Your Eviction Notices Don’t Intimidate Us

The following short report comes from Parkdale Organize in Toronto. For more information on the group, check out our podcast interview with them here, as well as this overview of current self-organized tenant groups here.

Michael Lax, landlord and director of Nuspor Investments, has sent eviction notices to the rent strikers at 1251 King.

On Sunday night rent strikers met and unanimously agreed to continue to withhold their rent until Michael Lax drops his application for a rent increase above the guideline at the building. The rent strikers are not intimidated. They will continue their rent strike with the support of their neighbours in Parkdale.

Lax will no longer be allowed to hide in his offices or behind his network of corporations. In the coming days rent strikers will be calling on neighbours and supporters across the city to join a campaign targeting Lax directly. Stay tuned!
