Tenancy Protection Laws need to change to protect Tenants and their pets

A lot of Tenants and their pets are suffering in the Province of Alberta, Canada and in other Provinces and in other States, because Landlords are refusing to take them and their pets in simply because they MIGHT cause damage to the property! If the Tenant is brave enough to move in anyway, then the Landlord eventually finds out and tries to evict the Tenant or Tenants! In the Province of Ontario, the Courts will not allow a Landlord to evict a person if in fact it can be shown that their pet is not causing damage to the property. It's important to stand up to our MLAs to effect change and also to stand up to our Landlords, both when we're trying to rent a place to say "we will take this place with our cat, dog, etc. and it won't cause any damage to your property and furthermore, we will not be forced to pay a pet deposit when in fact you're taking a security deposit from us!"
