I am a family member of the Russell family you are bringing down all though my last name is Blake I know they have not brought in the bugs because those bed bugs were living in that building years before the Russells moved in that building that building has been scummy for years and so has the whole lakeshore blvd west of Toronto it hasn't been a good hood for any kids to live on there are not just sex offenders on the street and drug dealers there are hooked and pimps as well even dirtier then
bed bugs so in terms of slandering the Russell families names over the Internet you should have just took the landlords to court no offence you people only see the future history of the building but what you are not do covering is the buildings history of its past.

There are no bedbugs in this building if there was it must be the people who moved in who brought them in..so don't listen to these adds....

This building , 2377 Lake Shore Boulevard West , is the site of a former crack house in Apt 102.
Apt 102 has not been fumigated and is probably going to be a source of bed bugs until they do fumigate it.
The landlord in the building is named Helen and will tell tenants that they have to pay for 50% of the spray cost.
She is wrong.
Check the Landlord Tenant Board and you will see that the landlord is responsible for safety and health concerns in the building. Bed bugs are a health con

Call the Toronto Public Health and ask to speak to an inspector regarding bedbugs. Toronto Public Health has a bedbug Action Committee, so make sure the inspector you speak with is up-to-speed on their internal initiatives.
Bedbugs are a pest problem and it is the responsibility of the landlord to control pest problems. The Residential Tenancies Act make no specific mention of bedbugs and says nothing about a 50/50 split.
Landlord may argue that a tenant is responsible for something and
attempt to charge but it is impossible to prove where bedbugs come from. I am not a lawyer. FYI - If you call the Ministry of Housing for info, do not necessarily rely on what they say. They, themselves, are not very well informed about bedbugs.

In the first week of October my partner broke out in what he thought were hives from an allergic reaction.
His family doctor raised the possibility of bed bug bites.
One evening ,sitting I my computer ,nowhere near the bed , I noticed 3 small bites on my arm.
I later looked through my desk and found a small ,apple seed sized , brown bug.
"Googling" this bug led me to learn that it is was a bed bug.
I went to the bed and lifted the pillow up to start looking for more of them. Right
there, under the pillow was another bed bug.
We advised the superintendant of bed bugs in our apt. and she advised that we are responsible for covering half of the cost.
Is this standard?
Doesn't the Landlord Tenant Act require landlords to cover pest control.
We have lived in this building for 3 years and DEFINATELY did not bring these bugs in.
The super admits that they are having them in other apartments.
What is your experience with the LAndlord Tenant Board?
