Beaver Barracks – 160 Argyle Tenant Meeting


in Daily updates, Ottawa

Notices went up today of a tenant meeting for inhabitants of 160 Argyle. Presumably, it will mostly be about the malfunctioning heating/cooling system, though people will probably bring up the lack of a laundry room and other issues.

The meeting is Thursday, May 26th at 6:00pm. It will be in the common room on the ground floor of 464 Metcalfe.

I cannot attend because I will be photographing an event, but if anyone can provide a debrief on the discussion I would be glad for it.

It might be a good idea to start a Beaver Barracks Residents’ Association. It could be a way of speaking more effectively to the people at the co-op (though I realize a residents’ association within a co-op is a bit absurd).

It may not be altogether inappropriate, though. The Beaver Barracks is the only geothermally heated and cooled building within the CCOC, and we are experiencing unique issues here.

I also feel that in this case, a tenant’s group could be useful as I am finding it quite frustrating trying to get anything resolved on my own. I feel that most of my emails or calls are just being ignored, and issues that I brought to their attention when I got here in December have yet to be addressed. Not sure where to start, but perhaps the Landlord Tenant Board may be of some help?

Do you know anyone who was able to attend the tenant meeting on the 26th?
