Suing LTB

In Ontario, what is the possibility to sue LTB for their unreasonable delay that cause landlord's unnecessary financial and emotion suffering. Their service standard is 25 business days to have a hearing date. Anyone tried?

Can the LTB be sued? It's part of the government, wouldn't it have some sort of legal immunity?

I wouldn't call it "immunity", more like sharing the same bed sorta speak.
If the plaintiff wins, the LTB may be dissolved because it would set a precedent which will open the floodgates.

End of day, for LTB to be faster, you are going to have to pay for it via tax. Cheaper to just pay tenant to f**k off.
Surely doubling their capacity to adjudicate disputes wouldn't cost much? Simplifying evictions for non-payment could eliminate a lot of the backlog?

Nonpayment evictions should take like 5 minutes each and can be adjudicated by ChatGPT

I hope she wins.
I think we (all) should pay for this collectively via our taxes.

This is what I don't get. When the tenants aren't even making the effort pay rent and know they are untouchable; why would any government encourage such behaviour. It only hurts tenants who do fall on hard times and can't pay. Because eventually both groups will get lumped in together and evicted together.

Entire LTB should be replaced by ChatGPT…it doesnt require any brain.

In fact, this is what ChatGPT said:

Here are some general principles that could be included in a fair policy for landlords and tenants:

Both landlords and tenants should be treated with respect and should be expected to treat each other with respect.
Landlords should be required to maintain the rental unit in a safe and habitable condition, and tenants should be required to take care of the rental unit and not cause damage.
Landlords should have the right to charge a reasonable rent, and tenants should have the right to a rental unit that is worth the amount they are paying.
Landlords should have the right to evict tenants for legitimate reasons, such as non-payment of rent or damage to the rental unit, and tenants should have the right to challenge an eviction if they believe it is not justified.
Landlords and tenants should have the right to privacy and quiet enjoyment of their rental unit.
Landlords and tenants should be able to resolve disputes in a fair and timely manner, through negotiation or with the help of a neutral third party, such as ChatGPT or other similar AI.

If they get dissolved, all those renters that work there will be homeless.

It used to be a perk, only renters get hired by ltb.

Yeah it's crazy.

We're still waiting on a hearing to the eviction process... Not even a simple piece of paper for non-payment of rent that I can get them evicted. For some reason in Ontario you need a hearing.

To hear what exactly? They've not paid the rent in 9 months and are still in my house. I'm out over $20,000 already, will be even higher before the "hearing" NEXT YEAR ?!

I cannot believe the theft the Ontario Government lets happen. I've decided to leave Canada for the winter and spend my CAD $ in Mexico.

If Canada and Ontario think they're going to get a penny from me in taxes this year, next or really anytime in the future they won't. I won't work for Ontario. I won't work for Canada.

What's the point in trying to save when your country and government lets people just blindly steal from you without recourse?

I really hope the LTB gets sued and someone is held responsible.

"Legal Immunity" the Government of Ontario thinks they're essentially god and can do no wrong... I think they made a law so you can't have a class action against them.

So I mean what are you to them really?

Just some slave to take advantage of and force into work servitude, financially bound to debt, taxes and turmoil.

People could vote for better government, instead they voted for the bottom of the barrel dirtbag.
The opposition is not much better but when you vote for worse you can't even get marginally better.

There is simply no incentive for Ford to do better when he can do much worse and easily get re-elected.
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburgers eat people

vote which party? lib and NDP are way worse. tenant has larger number than landlord, hence more vote.
