NDP MPP asks Human Rights Commissioner to weigh in on LTB hearings

QUEEN'S PARK — Ontario NDP critic for Tenant Rights Suze Morrison (Toronto Centre) has written to the Ontario Human Rights Commissioner asking her to advise on whether the current virtual operations of the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) violate the Ontario Human Rights Code and Canadian Charter of Rights.
The LTB's virtual operations have been increasingly subject to reports of systematic procedural unfairness that especially impact people with disabilities, those lacking access to technology and those facing language barriers.
