(Spryfield, NS) The ACORN Tenants Union is fighting back against the dangerous living conditions in the apartment complexes on Herring Cove Rd. as MetCap and Northview REIT neglect repairs and pest treatment.
WHAT: Stand Up to MetCap!
WHEN: Tuesday, February 23rd at 12pm
WHERE: 534 Herring Cove Rd to MetCap Property Management Office at 550 Herring Cove Rd, Spryfield
Tenants are living with mold, pests, massive repairs, leaking roofs, and MORE. Families with young children are living in dangerous conditions because of MetCap’s neglect and refusal to act.
Halifax-Mainland Co-Chair Patrick Donovan is a longtime resident of the 500 block, he says: “What they’re forcing people to live with here isn’t right. The tenants here are all people on low-incomes and families with nowhere else to go, and they know that. That’s why they think they can get away with making us live in these conditions.”
