kitchener resident: The landlord didn't seem to care, so she rallied the others in the building to create a tenants' association, according to CBC. Meet Violet Cook, Kitchener's Senior of the Year She spoke up because she said there were other elderly women and single women who were worried about doing so. The 87-year-old Kitchener resident recalls moving into an apartment that was nice at first, but then things deteriorated. They were afraid that they'd be evicted and it just seemed like it wasn't right, it wasn't fair. She went on to help form the Renters Educating and Networking Together, or R.E.N.T Waterloo, which advocates for housing and tenant rights. And when I encounter something like that, I kind of dig in and have to fight it it's just, I guess, something in my make-up, she said. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
