Abandonment Issues has been working hard over the past few months, conducting and compiling research on Toronto's unique abandonment issues.

Please support this campaign by attending an event launch for the bylaw that we are currently organizing for mid-May 2008. We need massive community support to show City Council that Toronto supports this initiative as a way to directly address the affordable housing crisis that has left thousands insecure and unsheltered. We will post details shortly on this event and hope to see you there.

We will also be posting more information on how you can let the City know that you support the Use It or Lose It bylaw.
