Wow, I've thought CBC has been in a bit of a decline lately, but not to the extent of this piece by Kathy Tomlinson. Tomlinson has taken one example of a landlord getting screwed by a particularly bad tenant and used it to declare landlords everywhere "powerless" victims government legislation too protective of tenants.
I didn't think it needed to be mentioned that landlords by definition are not powerless.
A decent treatment might have weighted the propensity of landlords to act as slumlords or simply overcharge (esp. in places like BC's inflated housing market) against the occassional wretched tenant. Instead it's just tabloid writing. Sigh.
