Tenant Summit IV

May 4th, 2002

A group of about 50 leaders from Toronto area Tenants' Associations joined us for our fourth Tenant Summit. One of the main topics of discussion was the June 28th Divisional Court case, and the FMTA's proposed intervention (see above). The group voted overwhelmingly in favour of the FMTA pursuing the intervention.

The Federation sent out thousands of flyers for this event, and our volunteers made over 200 phone calls encouraging people to attend. We like to think we played a big part in achieving the overflow turn out: estimated between 500-700 people.

Outreach Team Co-ordinator Dan McIntyre spoke at the event, as did several Federation board members and volunteers.
