The comment I received reads as follows:
It has to get very bad before the police will actually do anything, i called the police, landlord and eventually the real estate agent on the sign at the property that was the source of hell beside my home, nothing happened until they murdered someone on our front street.There needs to be a change to the Residential Tenancy Act. There needs to be a change to the Neighbourhood Liveability By-Law. The problem houses need to be dealt with long before a murder occurs in someones front yard.
I hope it never gets that bad for you and your neighbors.
