Ontario Premier Doug Ford is “begging” landlords to buy into a commercial rent relief program, warning of consequences if they don’t. The federal government and provincial governments have committed close to $1 billion to the Canada Emergency Commercial Rent Assistance (CECRA) program, he said. “(Landlords) need to start signing up for this because they’re not going to like the consequences if they don’t sign up for it,” Ford said Monday. “I can assure you — I’m protecting the tenants.”
