Niagara Falls won’t fight Marineland trailer park evictions
From the Welland Tribune:
Green Oaks trailer park residents have lost their bid to have city hall get between them and Marineland owner John Holer, who is evicting 47 families from the Stanley Ave. property.
But some say the attention they raised might help Niagara Falls renters in the future.
“They don’t want to protect Green Oaks trailer park. But they want to look into acting on it on all residential properties, which may end up helping us,” said Brian Topolinsky, one of the trailer park residents, after a city committee meeting Monday.
Councillors won’t invoke a seldom-used section of the Municipal Act to stop the trailer park from kicking out its tenants.
Instead, they opted to investigate how to use Section 99.1 of the Municipal Act in the future.
