The city's housing forum was a farce (NOW, November 29-December 5).
People from the Federation of Metro Tenants Associations were going through the crowd handing out "Save the hotline" buttons. They only seemed to care about us tenants demanding more money for their group, and not what they could do for tenants.
The whole forum was a well-scripted show for public and media consumption.

I found the article tenant clashes curious.
Dan McIntyre of the Federation of Metro Tenants Associations says, "Fairer taxes for tenants... shouldn't come at the expense of higher taxes for homeowners or cuts to city services."
Does he claim his group represents homeowners or tenants?
