Abstract: This tabloid style newspaper contains bits of information and access to resources for tenants' rights, their needs, and local community events. The lead article by Lina Chartrand is an urgent appeal to tenants in the area to respond to the possible end of Ontario's rent review program after July 31, 1977. (Subsequently, Premier Davis announced that the program would continue effectively after the July 31st deadline.) Miss Chartrand writes that it has not escaped tenants' groups that the government is dealing with rent review strictly as a political problem - not as an issue which affects people in a very real, direct way. By arguing that rental controls were only introduced as part of Ottawa's anti-inflation program, the Ontario Tories are denying that unjustifiably high rents are charged in Ontario.
