Re: "Council OKs fines for lying homeowners," the Now, Sept. 26.
What a refreshing attitude - making dishonest homeowners in Surrey accountable.
I agree with city council. Fine them. They know what they are doing. I hope the $1,000 fines will be levied in full with no mitigating circumstances.
These people who lie are guilty of perjury in the grand court of the greater community and deserve to be punished. The fee pales into insignificance to the amount of rent they are collecting every year.
The city should also report these homeowners to Canada Revenue Agency for taxes they are not paying.
