Oakville Homes

May 9, 2010

Time to $hit or get off the pot folks. Support this initiative.


I received an email recently that shows that someone is committed to doing something about the problematic Tarion issue.    We’ve all heard about Tarion issues and how this developer/builder/construction dominated agency really doesn’t seem to support those actually having to pay the fee to join – the homebuyer.  Now, for those that know me, you’ll know that I’m not a supporter of the NDP but, in this case, I have to give them kudos for joining up with “Canadians for Properly Built Homes” in what is truly a strong move to really support those buying homes within Ontario. 

I have experienced the disgusting lack of support from Tarion and I know a lot of you out there have also suffered the experience.  Read what follows and, if you can, lend your support to this proposed legislation.

Subject: Important – Invitation to all Ontarians – June 3, 2010 event at Queen’s Park

Please forward to others who may be interested.

Notice of Important Event – Introduction of proposed Bill to Provide the Ombudsman of Ontario with Jurisdiction over the Tarion Warranty Corp.

Great news for all of Ontario’s new home purchasers:  The NDP of Ontario will introduce a proposed Bill to change the law in Ontario so that, if passed, the Ombudsman of Ontario’s mandate will extend to Tarion!

All Ontarians are encouraged to join the NDP and Canadians for Properly Built Homes (CPBH) at the Queen’s Park Main Legislative Building in Toronto for this historic occasion.  It is very important that you and other Ontarians join us and show your support for this proposed Bill.  The purchase of a home is the largest purchase most consumers make, and Ontarians deserve much better consumer protection for newly built homes than currently exists.  This proposed Bill is one step to provide this.

The Office of the Ombudsman of Ontario has recently advised CPBH that Ombudsman oversight of the home warranty plan has been supported by that office since 1986 — and that position remains today by the Office of the Ombudsman of Ontario.

Date:  Thurs. June 3, 2010

Agenda – (Note:  All events in the Main Legislative Building):
9:00 a.m. – arrive and get signed in at security – ask for MPP Cheri DiNovo — ** parking note below
9:30 a.m.  – meet in MPP Cheri DiNovo’s office
10:00 a.m. – witness a news conference in the Media Studio
10:30 a.m. – attend Question Period and watch democracy in action
11:45 a.m. – lunch in cafeteria
13:00 p.m. – witness the introduction of the Bill
13:30 p.m. – end of event

Please send an e-mail to CPBH if you are planning to attend so that we can keep track of numbers:  info@canadiansforproperlybuilthomes.com  .  Thanks!  We hope to see you there! 

Please e-mail CPBH President Karen Somerville at info@canadiansforproperlybuilthomes.com  if you have any questions or comments.

** Parking at Queen’s Park can be a challenge.  You can try to park on College Street and/or the University of Toronto.  Subway is preferred – get off at the Queen’s Park Station.
