Media Advisory - Gigantic waiting room to protest long waiting times at the Rental Board

MONTREAL, Feb. 17, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Tenants create a huge waiting room in front of the Rental Board to denounce the discriminatory way that cases are scheduled at the tribunal. The waiting times, which are over 20 months for a general civil case, disproportionately affect tenants who are forced to wait for years in terrible housing conditions.

Media are invited to a rally with speeches and testimonies from tenants:

DATE: Wednesday, February 19th 2014
TIME: 11:00 AM (rally)
PLACE: Rental Board (1425 René-Lévesque West, Montreal)
