1340 King Tenants Organize Against Eviction
Today tenants at 1340 King along with members of Parkdale Organize delivered a letter to landlord Evan Johnsen at his Parkdale home. Johnsen is trying to evict 1340 King tenant Stanislav, a masonry worker who has lived in the building for twenty years. In summer 2018 Stanislav transferred to a new unit in the building. At that time Johnsen had Stanislav sign a sublease agreement with a termination date of January 31, 2019. Stanislav is a native Polish speaker and does not read English. He never intended to agree to end his tenancy.
We demand Johnsen let Stanislav stay and confirm the regularization of his tenancy no later than January 18. Should he not meet our demand we are prepared to take further action to defend our neigbour’s home.
