Ramon Perez is facing eviction because of a zoning law in Toronoto that says he "must be operating a business on the premises and not residing within them."
Perez was told by his superindentant that he would not be evicted because he is a good tenant and always pays his rent, but that they were using this to evict bad tenants.
"[I] laughed and said i’m not going to take your word over a signed piece of paper. i sign that lease and i’m putting the noose around my neck and just waiting for the landlord to push!"
Perez has refused to sign a new lease and now faces eviction. There are more details on his website.
