Ontario’s Minister of Consumer Services, the Hon. Margarett Best, was a guest speaker last week at the real estate section of the Ontario Bar Association’s annual Institute.  She spoke on the topic of "Do we need a new Condominium Act?"

The topic is timely, even though our Condo Act celebrated its 10th year in force just last year. Several parties have indicated displeasure with various aspects of the Act for some time and a lot has changed in 10 years.

Naturally, representatives of the real estate and condo law bars attended this special event, as did stakeholders like the Canadian Condominium Institute (represented by legislative commitee chair Armand Conant) and Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario (represented by President Dean McCabe).  See photo of the principal ringleaders, at bottom.

Like many conferences these days, the OBA Institute featured some live tweeting from participants in the sessions.   Here’s a recap of some of the best tweets of the Minister’s address.
