Great coalition building, Graeme.  Go, OCAP!  The world is ours. -- Tom

		Tenants at West Lodge, with the Ontario Coalition
		Against Poverty, have invited community leaders to
		come to the buildings and inspect the apartments
		themselves.  Community leaders from social justice
		organizations, churches and unions will talk with
		tenants about their plight, and inspect the
		condition of apartments that families are now being
		gouged for by as much as 50%.  The landlord has
		already started filing mass eviction orders.  With
		a lack of affordable housing in Toronto, hundreds of
		families will likely join the ranks of the homeless
