Vancouver DTES: Worst slumlords should be fined, activists insist


No footage found.

The B.C. government should fine Vancouver's worst slumlords until they bring their skid-row hotels up to basic living standards, housing activists said yesterday.

Since March, the Residential Tenancy Branch of B.C. has had the power to impose fines of up to $5,000 a day on landlords who break the law by allowing their rental properties to hit rock bottom.
