I’ve taken some time away from the office this month but return to the saddle today. Many thanks to the condo boards and managers who let me slip away and have patiently awaited my return.
As we approach the last long weekend of summer, here’s a batch of court and tribunal cases we’ve tweeted since April 1st. The volume of decisions seems a little lower than usual, perhaps on account of summer holidays.
Be sure to take advantage of these sunny and warm last days of August and stay tuned to me on Twitter for live feed on condo law and other neat developments.
