Housing advocates and politicians in Toronto are slamming the Ontario government following a report that the Tories are considering making it easier for landlords to evict tenants by making waiting periods for eviction notices shorter and letting private bailiffs remove tenants.

Internal documents showed that Doug Ford's Progressive Conservatives are considering shortening "the waiting period for eviction orders from 11 days to six days" and allowing private bailiffs evict renters, the Toronto Star reported on Tuesday.

This comes amid a severe housing crisis in Toronto, where the vacancy rate has been hovering around 1 percent and rents for one and two-bedroom apartments are the highest in the country.
