Kitchener-Waterloo Solidarity Network, Scores Victory Against Notorious Landlord As Two Stolen Deposits Returned!
by admin — last modified Aug 26, 2017 01:06 AM

From WPIRG Newsletter:We are pleased as punch to announce the winning back of two stolen deposits, both from notorious landlord Sheldon Cook. These victories come after a lengthy process as we worked together with tenants to win back the stolen deposits against a high profile character who had clearly become used to intimidating and pushing people around, breaking the rules, and pocketing the money with little regard to the lives it would impact. It was time for our community to push back, not only sending a message to Sheldon Cook, but to all exploitative landlords in the region. Ultimately, a visit to the landlord’s house by our action squad, along with sustained support and mutual effort between the KW Solidarity Network and the tenants, ended in the victory over this landlord, demonstrating that direct action gets the goods!
