A landlord in B.C. removed the doors and the majority of windows from one of his rental houses after a renter fell behind on her payments.
"Sean Heffernan owes me 13 months' rent ($16,250). Premier Doug Ford, please help Ontario landlords with tenants who refuse to pay rent," the sign reads.
Victor King, a Connecticut landlord, was allegedly decapitated by a tenant who did not want to pay rent. The tenant allegedly used a katana to murder his landlord over a rent dispute.
Ford said that it was up to landlords to accept the olive branch from the provincial and federal government.
"It's not going to be the end of the world. Protect the small businesses, and tell all the big landlords out there have a heart," Ford said.
The Ontario Landlord and Tenant Board is not helping evict nightmare tenants fast enough, which in turn is raising the cost of rent for everyone.
