2013 Year in Review: Apartment building without heat for three months

One resident claimed little had been done to improve the situation, and the space heaters everyone had been given were wreaking havoc on the electricity system. 

Westmont Apartments on 101 Avenue is owned by Northern Property Real Estate Initiative Trust, who cited issues shipping in replacement parts as causing the delay. In an effort to remedy the inconvenience, the rental company offered to pay a portion of the tenants’ electricity bills and credit them a half month’s rent. 

After the story came to light, it was shortly confirmed that the boiler had been repaired.
