Tenants awarded $30,000 over vulgar posters

In what is being described as a landmark ruling, the Human Rights Tribunal awarded $30,000 to several members of a Scarborough co-operative. The ruling stems from complaints about offensive posters targeting numerous members of the co-op, including some with disabilities. The ruling’s  precedential value lies in its clarification of the role of housing providers to not only  address instances of harassment, but to also keep affected tenants informed about steps that are being taken.
