SERIOUS PROBLEM!

In CANADA, BED BUGS are considered a SERIOUS PROBLEM

It is

NOT acceptable

to live with BED BUGS and not act to fix the problem

LANDLORDS may EVICT tenants who do NOT act to destroy bed bugs or do not PROTECT themselves

And you can be DENIED RENTING your next house!

THIS is a COMMUNITY PROBLEM that cannot be SOLVED unless PEOPLE WORK TOGETHER

IGNORING the PROBLEM, and PRETENDING that it is not happening will make it WORSE
