For centuries, landlords had a legal right called "distress" which let them take a tenant's personal property if the tenant failed to pay the rent. While Ontario banned this in 1970, there are still situations where landlords can take or throw out a tenant's belongings. As the spring moving season is upon us, this month's On the Radar reviews some of the legal rules that protect tenants' belongings. Produced by Community Education of Ontario.
