On International Tenants' Day we delivered an open letter to the City and Province.

The open letter was signed by dozens of housing, climate, and social justice groups from across Toronto.

The rampant disintegration of our community must be stopped. The city of Toronto is going through so much upheaval. Too many proposals to erect more buildings denying us green spaces and making housing worse than unaffordable! They're making it impossible!

There are almost 100 buildings in Toronto that are going to be demolished.

We need to build more housing. But demolishing the existing (and limited) stock of affordable housing is only going to make life less affordable for everyone.

Construction and demolition waste account for a staggering 40% of today’s landfills, and experts estimate that Ontario will exceed landfill capacity by 2032.

My name is Wanda and I have lived at 55 Brownlow Avenue for over 8 years.

I am retired and, like many retirees, I live on a fixed income. I am deeply concerned about the demolition of 55 Brownlow Avenue. I cannot afford to move from my affordable apartment at 55 Brownlow Avenue to an apartment in a new building.

We are not alone.

People across Ontario are being displaced from their homes due to a rise in demovictions and renovictions.

This practice, although justified as one of the only means of building more housing, destroys the stock of affordable housing and displaces lower income tenants who are unable to afford skyrocketing rent rates.
