FORTIN + MADOFF TRY TO STOP OLYMPIKS ‘RENOVICTIONS’ LOOPHOLE: ‘Substantial renovations’: are they really necessary now or just more Olympiks gouging by greedy landlords?

deanslist0001Victoria’s Socialist Mayor Dean Fortin and his long time Socialist Councillor friend Pamela Madoff (no relation to Bernie) say they have found a loophole in the Residency Tenancy Act which they want the B. C. Liberal government to fix!

According to a T-C article (a link to which is provided in the comments section below), Mayor Fortin says he and Ms Madoff have found a loophole in the provincial legislation which enables landlords to kick tenants out with just two month’s notice, and then jack up the rent, under the pretext of doing ‘substantial renovations.’

  I have no doubt that greedy landlords may very well be taking advantage of the present loophole in the Residential Tenancy Act to which Fortin and Madoff refer, and I am not about to defend that loophole or those greedy landlords.

However, it would come as no surprise that these Socialists would try to grandstand on this issue.  Now that a provincial election and  the Olympiks feeding frenzy of greed is upon us, the Socialists are trying to pretend that they are concerned about the poor and those threatened with homelessness. 

But note that they never, ever actually call into question whether we should be putting on, and paying for these damnable Second Kanadian Nazi Winter Olympiks in Vancouver – Whistler in 2010 in the first place.

They never call for the ‘games’ to be cancelled, and the venues sold, thus saving the taxpayers billions of wasted revenue that could and should otherwise be spent on the poor.

But, so far, in terms of amelioriating the homelessness situation, they really have not done much except to make basement suites easier for bourgeois landlords to tart up, with a grant of up to $5,000.00, no less…

They continue to waste our tax dollars pursuing vindictive and futile harrassment policies against the mentally ill, the homeless and the addicted on the streets of Victoria.  They very well may raise our residential property taxes up seven percent or more (if the cops get their way) in a period of planetary deflation, when local real estate values have fallen by a third in 2008!  It is appallingly irresponsible Keynsian economics gone wild.

Landlords are legally allowed to raise rents five per cent a year, according to Fortin.  Now we know why the residential property taxes go up five per cent a year, folks.  Tenants who don’t want their rents to go up should write letters to City Council, asking them not to raise residential property taxes, and to reduce spending, to protect tenants’ rights to sustainable shelter, and to keep rents stabilized or even lowered.

 Just landlords don’t want to raise rents, but will if taxes go up.  It is not in the interest of either landlords or tenants to raise rents now.  If taxes go up, and more people are made homeless, you know who to blame, folks.

And tonight, instead of doing something about the unruly street problems at Our Place, Street Link, Reeson Park and Pioneer Square, they are discussing a luxury mega yacht marina proposed to go along the Songhees waterfront.

Where are the Greens on this, I wonder?
