Smitherman announces $3 million bedbug plan
George Smitherman announced today he would put $3 million towards tackling Toronto's bedbug problem if elected mayor.
Smitherman said that he will introduce a five-point bedbug strategy, which would include creating protocols, increasing public awareness (that one seems already in the works), establishing a registry (more extensive than this one, I suppose?), step up inspections, and reform Toronto Public Health bedbug management.
"It's time public health did its job by stepping up inspections and clearly state what responsibilities landlords and tenants have to help fight bed bugs in their homes," Smitherman said in a release. He added that he is the only candidate with a funded plan to tackle bedbugs.
