500 Dawes Road

February 9, 2015

500

Editor’s note: We received a clearly scripted 5 minute voicemail message praising the “new” owners of 500 Dawes Road (lie) – and how wonderful the building is (lie), with countless happy residents (lie). Examples of the new management include putting up a sign asking people not to allow strangers into the building, and a sign asking residents to make use of the trash bin. As far as rats “some people brought them in as pets” the caller said, so it’s no wonder why they escaped into the walls and started breading. We even have a personal invitation to visit the superintendent, but we will ONLY accept if Janet Davis attends with us. Obviously the landlord’s deceit, and Janet Davis’ indifference never ends as this anonymous article proves:

I’m a resident of 500 Dawes Road, and have been for over 10 years. (Before Mrs. C. Krebs, aka C. Goodman, aka M. Litton took over the building and before the Human Rights Commission said they can no longer rent out to just adults.) The problem with the building started when the Harris Government closing down low rental housing and selling off the property to BIG developers. This is causing a major hosing shortage for low income family’s. Mrs. C. Krebs jumped on the band wagon and open the doors to 500 Dawes Road and 608 Dawes Road to low income family’s, then made a deal with the Federal Government to house immigrants at an inflated amount above the real rent.

We do have low income families in the building refusing to work, rather being on Ontario Works or O.D.S.P, and then we have the gang bangers and drug dealers. I must admit that Toronto Police’s gang unit, and drug squads have been very busy thanks to Mrs. Krebs (she use’s the Toronto Police Services as her personal security force). She also hires tenants from the Building to work around the building and property paying any where from $5.00 to $7.00 a hour when they are behind in there rent (due to the rental increases each year, more then they receive on Ontario Works.)

After a couple months she will have them evicted from the building, and have the door locks changed so they can not get their personal property. Then she has her staff clean out the unit. What is any good they split it up between them and the rest goes in the garbage. You can visit 79 St. Clair Avenue East, the Landlord and Tenant Board office and see how many tenants are on the list for eviction (last year there was one tenant in the court because of just 50 cents back rent). Several tenants are simply arrested by the police, and their unit is cleaned out within a week (mostly the drug dealer units). Today Mrs. C. Krebs has 10 units in court and had asked her assistant supervisor to lie for her. When he refused, Krebs got the new supervisor (who is on O.D.S.P.) on the stand.

As far the building maintenance Mrs. Krebs has been in and out of Courts Hearings, for over the past 10 years. At one hearing she was lying through her teeth regarding the heat in the building (500 Dawes Rd.) saying the heat was controlled by the weather and there was a unit on her roof that set the temperature for the building. Then she changed it to each unit has there own control for the heat (more perjury). The boilers were ordered to be replaced (never happened).

As for the fire in elevator, two employees were burnt very badly! One is in a wheel chair needing 24 hour care that was settled out of court. The second who still lives in the building (not able to work due to being burnt on his right side) was given the run around by Mrs. C. Krebs. First saying neither men were ever her employee, second telling him there would be a insurance adjuster getting in touch (which also never happened). The day of the fire Mrs. C. Krebs left the building right after the fire started, she went to the Ontario Social Services Office at Victoria Park and Eglinton and was found there by one of the tenants who stated to her “do you know the building is on fire?” Mrs. C. Krebs replayed yes, and waited two hours before returning to the building.

As for Janet Davis being here every year, yes that is true and even the former mayor Rob Ford has been here (editors note: video shows Mr. Ford was FAR more warmly welcomed). The city has put a lien on the Mortgage Payment from HavCare Investments account to do repairs if Mrs. C. Krebs refuse’s to carry out the work orders that have been placed against the building. Though, admittedly some of these orders date back 10 years.

Mrs. C. Krebs refuses to pay the interest on the last month’s deposit to any tenant stating they do not pay the increase, this not true. I have paid the increase every year and still never received a Cheque from her. Mrs. C. Krebs was ordered back in 2005 to pay each and every tenant their money for 5 years back interest. As for repairs in the units, you are better off doing them yourself. The whole place is below building code standards, any minor work is just a band-aid to keep the city happy.

A last word to those who wish to move DON’T! For the contractors that do work on this building or any other of the buildings she and her husband own, do not do it. You will NOT GET PAID! Yes the building has mice, rats, cockroaches and there are floors that are full of bed bugs. Every single crack head drug dealer in the area has their own keys to the building, though the tenants have to pay $25.00 for a front door key.

Yes, there are still some good tenants living here, they are the ones that have been here for the past 10 to 35 years or longer. If you do want to live here, Mrs. C. Krebs prefers cash rent payments so she does not have to declare it, and she can write the unit off as empty when tax time comes around.

If you want more information regarding the building go online to the City of Toronto’s Building Inspection page and take a visit to the courts/hearings, she just may throw a tantrum fit for you in public. Or just visit the building and talk with some of the tenants.
