A Superior Court Justice has granted an application for the owners of St. Brigid’s in Lowertown to evict The United People of Canada (TUPC) from the property.
Justice Sally Gomery’s decision, released Friday, also orders the controversial group with ties to the Freedom Convoy to pay $53,000 in costs to the property owners within 30 days.
Patrick McDonald, who owns the property near the ByWard Market along with three other partners, alleges a deal for TUPC to buy the building collapsed because TUPC failed to make deposits totalling $100,000, according to court documents.
His sworn affidavit states not making those payments, coupled with the $10,000 the group owes in rent and its failure to provide proof of $5 million in liability insurance, entitles the landlord to terminate the lease.
More to come.
