Lawyer Saron Gebresellassi told an appeal panel Monday that The United People of Canada (TUPOC) rented the building in June 2022 with the understanding that it would purchase the deconsecrated church for $5.95 million after a fundraising drive.

She argued that TUPOC did not receive the required 30-day notice of termination when it was unceremoniously evicted two months later in August. Gebresellassi said that offended the Commercial Tenancies Act and made the landlord's subsequent actions unlawful.

"This appeal is relying on a fatal error of law," Gebresellassi told the panel.
