Barrie Families Unite Appeal for Mary, 2022

We know this is out of character for us, as we are known for being advocates for tenants, but this video is about supporting a desperate landlord who has been taken advantage of during very dark days.

Why should you care? Well, if you are renting, these scammers are the reason why you are put through so many tests of income, credit, and background checks. Clearly, Barrie Families Unite feel likewise, as it is their team that is pulling in the support.

These tenants are evidently seasoned professionals who abuse the system and take advantage of the few good renters out there. They are nothing but a blight on tenants across the city and beyond.

If, after seeing this story, you want to help this woman who has been robbed for more than a year and wants only to bring her dying husband home for the holidays, the contact info is below.

To volunteer, please text 705-279-3490 to sign up for a shift.

To donate, please send an e-transfer to bfu2020@gmail.com and indicate ‘Mary’ in the comment line.
