TCHC sitting on 3,628 vacant units amid cries for more affordable housing.

By Sue-Ann Levy.

Published: November 3, 2018. Updated: November 3, 2018 6:16 PM EDT

Filed Under: Toronto SUN/ News/ Toronto & GTA


A TCHC home with 11 units at 237 Sherbourne St. in Toronto, Ont. on Monday October 29, 2018. It has been sitting vacant for 2 years. Ernest Doroszuk/Toronto Sun/Postmedia

For two years, Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) tenant Murray Bevan has watched the home behind him sit vacant while the homeless and drug-addicted that frequent the area loiter in the alleyway beside his Sherbourne and Dundas building.

The 11-unit home at 237 Sherbourne St., he says, is part of their high-rise property but since it got destroyed by the drug-addicted, it has essentially sat empty.

(And of course this is the same problem that afflicts HUNDREDS of properties- most of them smaller and older buildings- and quite frequently single family dwellings! TCHC does not have the cash to bring the structures back to a habitable state! And yet they still have to PAY for the structures- grass must be cut, sidewalks plowed, security people must come around and do their best to keep the places closed up and prevent squatters and addicts from taking over, and there are also scrap dealers who would happily strip out copper pipe and wiring if the buildings were not secured!)

(TCHC cannot afford to repair hundreds of derelict units- and the city is bankrupt as well- but TCHC DOES HAVE great gobs of gravy to give out as “performance bonuses” to their grand poobahs -even as the unpaid rents owed by drug dealers and hookers increases steadily!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(TCHC cannot repair its slums, cannot collect on rents owed and CLAIMS it cannot evict cheating thugs- but bonuses are NO PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(AS former mayor Rob Ford PROVED- if TCHC could be forced to sell some of the derelict single family dwellings then there would be cash freed up and available for repairs to multi unit TCHC buildings that ARE STILL SALVAGEABLE!!!!! Such action is a MULTI WIN!)

(Selling derelict single family dwellings eases TCHC costs for their basic security and rough maintenance! It provides repair money for other structures! And once the sold off properties are nicely renovated- generating jobs as the work is being done- they then become real estate tax generators for the city! How could this be bad? Unless you are a pig headed LIE-beral or union HOG??????????)

When he’s asked TCHC brass why the house is just sitting there vacant, he’s been variously told that an agency is taking it over or that there’s no money for capital repairs.

Indeed TCHC spokesman Bruce Malloch confirmed this past week that 237 Sherbourne was vacated for “safety reasons” and is “currently being held for major capital repairs.”

(WE do know that some city owned buildings were at one time planned to be handed over to a native charity group- but of course that deal probably fell onto the back burner due to natives not being able to find govt grants to pay for the work to make the buildings habitable! So the buildings sit empty and rotting and waiting for a change of govt or for a wrecking ball!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

“The whole thing is disgusting to me,” says the feisty Bevan, 77. “It’s not just the people across the street (from me) but also the waiting list TCHC has for people (needing housing).”

(It provides “make work” for union Hogs- cutting the grass and shoveling snow !!)

I spoke to Bevan in the aftermath of newly re-elected Mayor John Tory’s first announcement that he intends to take “immediate action on affordable housing” in his first 100 days of the new term.

In his statement, Tory indicated he’s asked city staff to bring forward 10 sites — surplus city land — where affordable housing can be built and has requested the Chief Transformation Office to report on how red tape can be cut to speed up construction - the latter will be interesting considering we’ve heard virtually nothing from said chief transformation officer Michael Kolm, since he was hired 18 months ago at $130,058 to, er, transform Toronto City Hall.

(Perhaps Transformation Officer Kolm is trying to organize a seance to raise the shade of Rob Ford- the last major player to light a fire under TCHC? Certainly nothing less than dire threats will work on ENTRENCHED CITY HOGS!!!!!!!!!!)

(Some people will recall that right after Jackass John Tory was first elected to Silly Hall- he ended up in huge public outrage after he heard of the grand performance bonuses TCHC staff gave themselves! But that was 4 years ago and since then - Jackass John has learned to keep his mouth shut when city hall Hogs start splashing gravy at each other!)

Bevan feels much more could be done to house the homeless with what the city already has.

Which brings me to TCHC’s other vacant units.

It seems since I first wrote about this in March of 2017, the number of vacant TCHC units has actually increased!

(Well yes! Leaking roofs, corroded plumbing, fried electrical systems- all this means units get unhealthy to live in as the buildings decay! I recall going into a 26 story building on Redpath Ave a couple of decades back and the ENTIRE TOP FLOOR was vacant- nothing but puddles of water, mould, fallen plaster and rot! If you never fix anything then eventually it becomes UNUSEABLE!!!!!!)

In late March of 2017 3,540 TCHC units were sitting vacant while 177,000 people waited for subsidized housing in Toronto.

The tally of vacant units as of Sept. 30 of this year was 3,628, an increase of 2%.

(And LIE-berals will not wish to discuss how many of those seeking our not so affordable housing are illegals! Nor will city Hogs wish to discuss the 150 plus town house units demolished in the Jane finch area in summer 2018 after it became obvious that they were too rotted to salvage!!!!!!!!)

This is despite a call by Tory in March of 2017 for reports from Paul Raftis, the city’s general manager of shelter, support and housing and then TCHC CEO Greg Spearn to get the problem fixed. The reports ensued, along with plenty of excuses.

(The key problem at every turn is cash- and the lack of it!)

There was also much well-deserved hue and cry at the time from board member Vince Gasparro — who seemed to avoid the whole TCHC mess while he was co-chairman of Tory’s recent re-election campaign.

(NO wonder! NOBODY wants to discuss govt problems that CANNOT BE FIXED due to HOG GREED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(It is the CONSTANT PROBLEM- the city can afford EITHER to fix things or to supply Hogs with more gravy and gravy is needed to BUY HOG VOTES! So nothing ever gets fixed because buying votes is the priority!!!!!!!!!!!!)

The one thing that has changed under CEO Kathy Milsom and the current board is TCHC’s transparency, and not for the better.

Until the fall of 2017, detailed statistics — outlining the breakdown of rentable and non-rentable units -plus the reasons — were provided every month as part of the publicly issued president’s report.

That stopped this year, forcing a recent back-and-forth game with TCHC to acquire the same statistics provided freely a year ago.

Perhaps that’s because the vacant unit situation is still a mess.

(WE may guess that the number of unrentable units is increasing along with water damage from leaking everything- roofs, windows, plumbing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Two points about the rentable units stand out in particular.

In March of 2017, Gasparro was particularly upset with the number of market units sitting vacant–189 at the time– because they subsidize the rent-geared-to-income (RGI) units.

That has been whittled down to 107, although the number was much lower in August at 89.

The other major concern was the number of bachelor and one bedroom apartments sitting vacant — ones that could easily house the many hard core homeless now using respite shelters — and the unwieldy offer process to get people to take units.

(And WHY is the offer process so UNWIELDY? Could it be that most of the homeless are unfit for polite society due to drug and alcohol addictions or to untreated mental health issues! Are TCHC staffers quietly telling their political masters that “yes- we could let the homeless move in- but we would just have to evict them for disgusting behaviour that annoys other tenants - literally before they even got unpacked”?)

In the most current statistics provided by TCHC’s Malloch, some 729 or 59% of the 1,222 rentable vacant units are either bachelors or one-bedrooms.

Malloch also noted that 626 of the 1,222 rentable vacant units are “undergoing turnover” — either leased or on offer to an applicant. Asked how many are on offer at present time, he said “roughly one-third.”

THEN VS. NOW

March 2017

Total number of vacant units: 3,540
Number rentable: 1,590
Number non-rentable: 1,950
Includes: 326 boarded up (out of service); 1,405 units held for operational purposes and 219 units held for relocation purposes.

September 2018

Total number of vacant units: 3,628
Number rentable: 1,222
Number non-rentable: 2,406
Includes: 1,172 being held for redevelopment (either demolished or in the process of being demolished), 326 boarded up, 323 held for relocation purposes and 188 units held for community programming or for use by TCHC staff (for equipment storage or as a live-in space.)

Please note that they are implying that the US needs locked storage laws to prevent youth suicide, yet Canada never experienced any improved youth suicide trends when we passed locked storage laws.

In my opinion, this is a classic 'feel good' law where no one bothered to check if it had positive results in Canada.

Consider this wedding from HELL:::::::::::::::



Here is another article illustrating the utterly insane working conditions that cops must now deal with. Along with some comments of my own in brackets):

Pistol-packing bride arrested for pointing gun at groom.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS. First posted: Tuesday, August 01, 2017 11:58 AM EDT | Updated: Tuesday, August 01, 2017 12:02 PM EDT

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — A Tennessee bride was arrested hours after saying “I do” when authorities say she pointed a gun at her groom.

Murfreesboro police Sgt. Kyle Evans told WTVF-TV on Monday that 25-year-old Kate Elizabeth Prichard was still in her wedding dress when she was arrested on an aggravated domestic assault charge.

(Gee-times have changed- used to be it was a garter the bride had strapped to her thigh? And WHO takes a gun to a wedding anyway?)

Evans says officers responded to a report of Prichard and her husband arguing at a Clarion Inn motel a few hours after they were married. Police say witnesses reported that Prichard pulled a 9 mm pistol out of her dress, pointed it at her husband’s head and pulled the trigger.

The gun wasn’t loaded. Police say Prichard then loaded a round in the chamber and fired a shot in the air.

It’s unclear if Prichard has an attorney.

(Yeah- I bet there is a whole LOT that is unclear with Prichard! But her behaviour illustrates yet again how dangerous it is for a cop to interact with the often drugged, frequently drunk and often mentally ill public!)

Yeah, obviously..........but the advertised point of safe storage laws in Canada at the time of their introduction was to prevent theft.


That they have done, to some extent.


The unspoken reason was to prevent armed self defense.


That they also achieved to some extent.......unfortunately.

Not that I'm aware of. Most of the children and women and more than a few men, (particularly those who have lost famiy members to a gun) hope it deters children and the mentally unbalanced access to them.

Not too bad if it deters a few burglars from finding them.

Gerald Stanley needed that "armed defense" when prowling drunken native thieves- with Coulton Boushie driving- came to his house looking for things TO STEAL!!!!!!!!!


And of course the native DRUNKS had a fully loaded semi automatic .22 calibre rifle in the car- that they quietly dumped when Stanley confronted them with his LEGALLY REGISTERED PISTOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And there have been other cases where property owners have been confronted by thieves and needed that "armed defense"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get tough on dual national terrorists, senator urges.

By Anthony Furey, Postmedia Network. First posted: Thursday, December 15, 2016 03:50 PM EST | Updated: Friday, December 16, 2016 09:42 AM EST

A Conservative senator is embarking on a campaign to see that the government still has the power to revoke the citizenship of dual-national terrorists.

On Thursday Sen. Daniel Lang, representing Yukon, urged his fellow senators to amend the controversial Liberal bill Bill C-6.

(OH, that explains it! Lang is from a place ISOLATED from LIE-beral political correctness and only relies on common sense and logic to guide him!)

“I am not alone when I state that these dual-national Canadian terrorists are not like every other Canadian – and they don’t deserve the same rights and privileges as every other citizen,” Lang said in the Upper Chamber.

(Yes, TRAITORS traditionally get a harsh sentence-they are not normally allowed to stay in the country they betrayed-and which they would probably betray yet again if given a chance! But Our brainless Boy prime minister counts ONLY LIE-beral votes-Cdn security is a LONG WAY SECOND for him!)

The previous Conservative government passed a bill that came into effect only last year allowing citizenship to be taken away from people convicted of terrorism and high treason who also hold citizenship in another country. The Liberal bill – which passed the House of Commons and is now making its way through the Senate – will repeal this provision, among other measures.

(And of course, LIE-berals will shortly be under HUGE pressure to ALTER their idiot stance in exchange for keeping the U.S. border open to Cdn trade! Various Yankee groups want to close the border to Canada for the sake of Yankee jobs that we are accused to stealing. Newly elected Yankee president Trump has made No secret of his dislike of Jihadist jerk offs and what will he make of a Cdn prime minister who had-and THREW AWAY a perfect opportunity to DUMP SEVEN TRAITORS?

But Our stupid Boy is simply following in his fathers Yankee hating footsteps-showing proper disdain for Yankee `imperialists is far more important than any economic issue for Trudope family members! But HOW will Our Boy justify himself to Cdns who are rendered un-employed if his idiot stance results in a closed border? The sunny ways grow ever more stormy!)

The senator says the provision currently only applies to seven people holding Canadian citizenship, four of whom were convicting in the 2006 Toronto 18 terror plot to attack the Parliament buildings, CSIS and CBC headquarters and behead the prime minister.

“What I maintain is that when someone has committed the worst crime you could against your country, your fellow Canadians and your neighbour, one of the consequences should be that you lose your citizenship,” Lang told the Sun in a phone interview.

(It sounds so simple-till you involve LIE-berals BUYING Muslim votes-then it gets Messy!)

Trudeau famously defended repealing the provision by arguing it created two tiers of citizen, stating “a Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian.”


Lang rejects that logic, pointing out that there is currently a law frequently used by the current government that allows revocation if someone has been found to have obtained citizenship through fraud, an offence, he says, that is much less troubling than a terrorism conviction.

While the bill has the backing of the government, Lang’s “cautiously optimistic” his fellow senators will listen to his arguments and amend the bill. He’s also urging Canadians who care about the issue to contact politicians.

“I’d like to think that common sense will prevail and that the question of public security for Canada will come first when a decision has to be made on this issue,” says Lang.

(This legal dogs breakfast is in the hands of LIE-berals-and common sense and logic has already failed us in October 2015! One has only to look at LIE-beral minister Maryam Monseff to realize the scope of LIE-beral vote buying. Monseff was born in Iran-and her family brought her to Canada after telling Cdn immigration they were Afghans. And why make such a claim? Cause Afghans were more politically acceptable than Iranians-then and NOW!)

(So her parents LIED to get her in the country-from war torn revolutionary Iran and now this Iranian daughter of LIARS is a LIE-beral govt minister lecturing the rest of us on OUR inferior version of democracy! Monseff had the arrogance to have a melt down in parliament and insulted Cdn Mp`s simply because they had effrontery to insist that LIE-berals should not alter our electoral process without first holding a referendum. YES-the Iranian born LIAR who wants to RIG our electoral system so LIE-berals can cling to power-AND has the nerve to lecture us for wanting a referendum and a show of democracy!)

(The time has come to restrict federal political office ONLY to those who are born here. We have NOT been well served by foreign born politicians. Does anybody recall Carribean born Hedy Fry- an MP in the LIE-beral Chretien govt shrieking about “crosses burning on lawns as we speak” in British Columbia. She was bad then and is worse now as chair of the committee seeking to EXOAND M 103-the Islamophobie mess! Cdns did not know that B.C. was a hotbed of Ku Klux Klan activity until Fry insulted us with lies that she was later forced to retract. If we are such bigots then how did she get into the country? AND get elected?)

(Or Alphonse Galiano-the Italian born MP in the LIE-beral Chretien govt-the guy at the heart of the LIE-beral ad scam business when three billion dollars of tax payer money went missing!)

(And now we have Iranian imbecile Monseff blowing her stack because the parliamentary committee she hand picked to make LIE-beral electoral reform and vote rigging more palatable to the public DARED to suggest a referendum instead of meekly doing her imperious bidding like a flock of typical/intimidated Iranian sheep! Thank you LIE-berals for this political dogs breakfast!)

Thankfully, I was not involved in anything like those incidents.


We had a single robbery attempt on a crew from my branch.........it wound up being a Mexican standoff (Is that racism, or cultural appropriation?), eventually the bad guys ran off with no money.


Interesting fact.


I worked for a large international company, based in the USA. In our office was a plaque with the names of all those guards killed on the job. Allowing for the difference in the size of the US/Canadian operations, it was clear you were more likely to die on the job in Canada than in the USA.


Canadians killed in the job were most likely to be from Montreal.

So. you used a revolver/handgun to walk in the bush and when living in boarding house before being married. Would not a rifle have managed both?

I realize men, (some) fear being without a weapon but when it interferes with the lives of others, then the rules or laws must change. I feel the only place a hand gun ishould be allowed is on a shooting range or in the hands of the police, army and security guards, and others 0nly after being trained and certified as sane. I realize that for many this is fearsome. but losing a family member or good friend accidentally to gun fire is far worse.

Lady, I figure you have your own way of interpreting a story, but I have been a licensed pistol target shooter since the age of 21 and my firearms were locked in a drawer with a combination lock five clicks away from the third number to open it... and that was decades before the law of locking firearms came into effect...
As for carrying while prospecting, I would like to see someone doing it with a rifle slung over your shoulder having to bend over to chip or pick up a rock and the rifle slipping of and falling to the ground. Also a 44 magnum weighing about 5 pounds in a shoulder rig is a lot lighter and easier to carry than a 30.06 and it doesn't interfere with the pack sac on your back!


But I realize that like waldo/ hoid, your mind is made up on the subject and that no amount of common sense will change your mind....


Carry on!
