Stop pad rental hikes in Yukon mobile home parks!

Buying a mobile home in a park worked out to be $50/month less expensive than renting in Whitehorse, even after pad rent, mortgage, insurance, heating oil, and utilities. Unfortunately, in September the pad rent will have been raised twice since I purchased the trailer in 2014, putting me right back where I was before. Only now I have the weight of the mortgage and the knowledge that I could be evicted from the park. There is a shortage of affordable housing options in Whitehorse, and unregulated pad rent increases do not help that situation at all.
