This Is Parkdale: a documentary on the Parkdale Rent Strike
From May to August more than 300 of our neighbours in MetCap buildings went on rent strike and won. Their rent strike forced MetCap to substantially drop the rent increases and commit to a program of rent-relief for low-income tenants. The rent strike was a turning point for Parkdale. Our neighbours showed us that when we organize we can stop landlords from pushing us out of our homes and neighbourhood.
