Don’t lose sight of this in­jus­tice

RE: Condo boom leaves no room for Ron Bel­more (Feb. 7)

I read this ar­ti­cle with mount­ing hor­ror and dis­be­lief. It may be 2017, but the en­tire flavour was clas­sic Dick­en­sian.

I ap­plaud the at­ten­tion Mr. Bel­more is re­ceiv­ing from his lawyer, but how is it pos­si­ble for his dis­abil­ity sup­port worker to clear such a place as ap­pro­pri­ate for liv­ing? The land­lord col­lected $650 a month from a brain in­jury vic­tim, know­ing full well the space he oc­cu­pies is il­le­gal to use as a res­i­dence.

I sin­cerely hope that this gross in­jus­tice does not get lost among those who ap­pear to be po­si­tion­ing them­selves to avoid re­spon­si­bil­ity. For Ron’s sake, make it right! Lynn Zwart, Grimsby
