Updating a story MHProNews posted Jan. 14, 2013 about residents of Killam Properties, Inc.’s Mountain View Estates MHC at Lake Echo, Nova Scotia, Canada having to boil their water (or buy it bottled) for 14 months, it is now safe to drink for the 300 families who live there. One tenant, Bruce Baillie, took his complaint to the residential tenancy board, saying it was a violation of his lease, and won a judgment of $660.81 against Killam. The company is appealing the case, saying it only costs $19 a year to boil water for 20 minutes a day, not the $2 a day that was awarded, according to senior property manager Michael Kabalen. Killam has spent $300,000 for four new wells that began working Feb. 8. CBC.CA reports if all the tenants were paid the same as Baillie–others are considering filing a complaint– it would cost the company $280,000.
