Strik­ing tenants of Ake­lius build­ings protest what they feel was an un­fair process of dis­pute res­o­lu­tion over above-guide­line in­creases at an Ontario So­cial Jus­tice Tri­bunal. The protest was part of a longer rent strike or­ga­nized by tenants in the neigh­bour­hood and rid­ing of Park­dale-high Park in Toronto that be­gan on May 1, 2017, and led to a num­ber of ne­go­ti­ated set­tle­ments over rent in­creases and re­pairs for build­ings in the rapidly gen­tri­fy­ing neigh­bour­hood.
