Description

CBC Radio exposed a slum landlord in Edmonton who was using the welfare system to exploit his tenants who were on social assistance by interceting and cashing their welfare checks and charging high rent. Reporters found that the landlord supplied the social services department with false information so that the checks could be sent directly to him, among other violations, Oct. 4, 1994.
