ABANDONMENT ISSUES RELEASES 'USE IT OR LOSE IT' BYLAW













Abandonment Issues has been working hard over the past few months, conducting and compiling research on Toronto's unique abandonment issues. We are excited to release our policy brief outlining the city's need for the Use It or Lose It bylaw and issuing recommendations for how this bylaw would best be implemented.

Please follow the link to read a summary of our policy brief and recommendations:

Click here for the full report: http://individual.utoronto.ca/property/AI_report.pdf

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.

Hi,

Heather Dorries directed me to this site after hearing me present a paper at the aag conference on the Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign, a group that helps homeless people takeover abandoned houses and what-not. She told me that you might be interested in reading the paper, and that you have written some things on this issue as well that I might like to read. I'll leave you my e-mail address--its doneg005@umn.edu

This looks like a great project. I hope to hear from you soon,

Connor
