Fall in the GTA has felt more like the dog days of summer so far, and that has had some hi-rise tenants feeling the heat.

City bylaws in Mississauga and Toronto require residential buildings to provide heating as of Sept. 15. Despite the extreme heat alerts over the past week, some landlords refused to turn the air conditioning back on, for fear of facing stiff fines.

One Mississauga city councillor is hoping to change that, with a motion asking to push that city’s heat deadline to October 1st.
