Oshawa moves closer to passing "anti-student bylaw"

January 24, 2008

The City of Oshawa's Development Services Committee has voted "yes" on a controversial bylaw that will now go to city council for a final vote.  The proposed bylaw would require landlords to get licenses, uphold strict housing standards, and put limits on the number of bedrooms allowed per house.  The bylaw is meant to resolve noise, parking and "irresponsible behaviour" concerns, but has been publicly criticized as an attack on students at UOIT and Durham College.
