Residents in the working-class neighborhood of Parkdale are engaged in a rent strike against their landlords, and recently carried out the following flyering campaign. To learn more about Parkdale Organize, check out our podcast interview with them here.
Over the long weekend flyers were delivered to Michael and Marsha Lax’s neighbours in their Bathurst and Sheppard-area neighborhood. More flyers appeared in the area of Bnei Akiva schools where Michael Lax sits on the Board of Directors.
These are some of the #Parkdale families and pensioners in the #1251KingRentStrike now being evicted by #MichaleLax and #MarshaLax. #MichaelLax and #MarshaLax: stop evicting Parkdale families! Drop the AGI and do the repairs now! @BASToronto pic.twitter.com/m30pXK49qr
