I did not know where else to post this one, but it's new that needs to be watched out for, being as it concerns the building Funky's is in (you'll see near the end of the piece):

Quote:
Injunctions sought against landlords
Dilapidated housing sites infested with rats, bugs


By Jeff Lee, Vancouver Sun June 10, 2011

Vancouver building inspectors are asking city council to use, for the first time, a new policy that involves seeking court injunctions against owners of dilapidated buildings who refuse to clean them up.

The request relates to two notorious Downtown Eastside rooming houses. Wonder Rooms at 50 East Cordova and the Palace Hotel at 35 West Hastings have long been on the city's radar as places that often violate building and standards of maintenance bylaws.

On the infrequent occasions that city inspectors have been given access to the buildings, they found rats and bedbugs, holes in walls, non-working emergency equipment and broken fixtures.

All efforts to get the owners, George Wolsey and Douglas Robinson, to make necessary repairs to the 71 units have gone unheeded.

On Thursday, city councillors will decide whether to ask the B.C. Supreme Court to intervene and order the owners to make repairs or face contempt of court charges.

Coun. Tim Stevenson, who in 2009 proposed a new policy that the city take owners of rundown buildings to court if they refuse to clean them up, said that so far, the mere threat of being hauled before a judge has made people shape up.

But that hasn't worked in the case of Wolsey and Robinson, Stevenson said.

"The hotels themselves are slums, for sure, and so we're bringing down the hammer," he said. "We really want to signal to other slum landlords that we are very willing and able to use this tool and we're going to do it because we want to clean up these hotels."

Under the new policy, landlords would be ordered by judges to make repairs. Landlords who fail to do so could be found in contempt and fined. The courts could also order the work to be done by someone else and billed back to the owner, Stevenson said.

The rooming houses are owned by two companies that list Wolsey and Robinson as principals. Wolsey is no stranger to legal troubles, much of it involving business activities he carried out as a pharmacist in the Downtown Eastside. Since 2001, he and his partners in several pharmacy or drug companies have been sued several times by the province for allegedly defrauding the government of millions of dollars in methadone treatment overbilling schemes. In 2004 another partner, David Rands, went to jail for fraud and repaid $417,000 in billings.

Earlier this year, the province again sued Wolsey and his partners, including Robinson, for another $93,000 in methadone overpayments made years ago at a second pharmacy in Delta.

Wolsey was also accused in 2009 of making kickbacks and threatening residents of the Wonder Rooms with eviction if they didn't bring their methadone prescriptions to his Gastown Pharmacy. Those allegations, including one that addicts were given $10 a week to bring their prescriptions to the pharmacy, led to the end of his methadone business and to his career as a pharmacist. The B.C. College of Pharmacists said it would convene a disciplinary hearing against him but the case was later dropped. He is no longer registered to practise as a pharmacist.

Last year, Wolsey and his partners were ordered to repay a mortgage company $353,000 for defaulting on a mortgage on the Wonder Rooms.

The Wonder Rooms, a four-storey heritage building, is so bad that the vacant commercial premises on the main floor are littered with feces, stink of urine and are damaged by water leaking from upstairs units, the report says. Only 27 of the 39 units are occupied.

The situation at the Palace Hotel, which contains 32 units above the Funky Winker Beans Pub, is only marginally better.

Property assessment records show the Wonder Rooms property has an assessed value of $1.5 million. The Palace Hotel has an assessed value of $2.8 million.

Attempts to reach Wolsey for comment were unsuccessful. A message was left with staff at the Wonder Rooms.



I know this affects the residences, not the bar directly, but it reminds me of the Cobes situation. If the city inspectors / officials get it in their heads to put an entire property (property owner) on their shit-list, they will throw everything at it to add to the pressure - liquor lisence inspectors, fire safety, etc. Not the bar's fault, but once again there's the possibility of ending up as collateral damage.

:(
