“A B.C. woman has been fined $500 for renting out a garden shed to a homeless couple and their three dogs.
A power cord that ran from the woman’s house in Kelowna, B.C., supplied electricity to the small metal building, for which she was charging rent of $200 per month.

  1. This woman is so selfish. She should do what I and all my neighbours are doing about the homeless… Nothing.

  2. Truly… not all garden sheds are created equal… I give you…

  3. Glad to see the fine was only 2.5 months rental income….. an effective and fierce consequence for treating other human beings poorly.

  4. A Vancouver amateur landlord would calculate they could get 1200 a month from that shed.

      Fixed that for you.

  5. Ha – welcome to BC! Bring your cash to the best place on earth! Super-rich immigrants are particularly welcome. We don’t believe in industry but we have a RE speculation business from garden sheds and basement suites to laneway house and barely liveable tear downs. Come take advantage of the system and get rich before it’s too late.
