Natalie Paddon, Hamilton Spectator:
After a decade in her home, Shawna Chorney fears her days living at her east Hamilton apartment are numbered.
The 30-year-old is facing eviction from her one-bedroom unit at the end of the month after Hamilton bylaw found the Rosewood Road property, which has been operating as a six-plex for years, is zoned for four units. Chorney’s landlord gave her an eviction notice for her main-floor apartment in order to comply with the zoning violation as she is paying the least rent at $634 a month. Chorney’s situation highlights some of the issues plaguing the city amid Hamilton’s ongoing affordable housing crisis.
