Ottawa, ON bedbugs(2 posts)
The bedbug's apparently originated in unit #706 at 145 York Street, Ottawa, ON, and had been there for at least a year, according to pest control, due to it being "the worst case I've seen in 3 years", but had not been reported, either by fear, stupidity, or just plain irresponsibility. I am aware of at least 7 relocations to other apartments, and some of those people have suffered horribly.
Management has not informed anyone of this situation, and have let the tenants come to them if they've encountered any. I was told I was the only one to complain, and yet I've heard horror stories of what others have had to deal with for at least 6 months before I even encountered a single bug! Who knows how many other tenants have been affected? If everyone who complained was told they were the only one, and they've kept the situation under wraps, so as to avoid others finding out, there could be millions of bedbugs running through the walls on every floor, along pipes and electrical wiring, only to be displaced to another section of the building when one unit is sprayed.
I have enclosed the link to an online petition created to have as many people affected by this, and anyone who would like the owners of 145 York Street to be accountable, and do everything in their power to combat the bugs, so we may be able to sleep in peace again, if ever...
My goodness, I live on York too (only further on York) and I have them too!
