Toronto Bed Bugs Summit planned for Queen's Park
A Toronto bed bugs summit has been slated for this fall that will confront one of Toronto's most itching (sorry) problems.
Queen's park will be hosting a summit on September 29 where the health ministry, Toronto Community Housing, landlord associations, tenant groups and the pest control sector will come together to discuss the issue.
Eglinton-Lawrence MPP Mike Colle is behind the planning. Colle tabled a private member's bill in June to create the Renters' Right to Know Act, which requires landlords to inform prospective tenants if their building has faced bedbug problems in the last five years.
"We're just trying to get it on the provincial agenda to get a plan here," Colle said. "It's not just a gab fest or complaint fest, it's to give us a solution for what we can do."
Colle wants the summit to create a list of 10 solutions to be immediately implemented by government and pest control companies.
