    She's going to have to rent out the in-law suite on her acreage to get by...and she only wants A GAY MAN. LOL! So she wants to run an ad stating that, but I told her she can't discriminate that way.

    "Why not?", she said. "What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander."

    When my partner and I moved out of a town-house we had been renting and the landlord came to inspect; in order to authorize a return of the deposited, she said that from now on she was only going to rent to gay men.

    Hey dustin, thatz cuz gayz got gudd tastez.

    Well, if there are any lower mainland gays here, send me an email if you're interested. From her time spent on here while recuperating from heart surgery, she probably has a list of her favourite RJ profiles ...icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif I thought of telling her to start an RJ B+B for a one person or couple at a time thing for those that want a little R+R out in the country..(actually not very far - about 40 minutes drive to Vancouver).

    Oh gosh, I can see it now..

    Heh, from my reading up on renting out your own property, if you're renting out 4 or fewer units, you can discriminate however the hell you want, you're just not allowed to advertise in a way that gives the impression that you're going to discriminate against/for a protected class. So, for instance, I wasn't allowed to state that my house was a block away from a synagogue and walking distance from several churches, as that would have given the impression I cared about the religion of my renter. However, had I felt like it, I could have chosen not to rent to someone because I didn't like his religion, I just couldn't advertise that way.

    It's bizarre.

    Oh, please tell your Mom not to rent to my ex. He couldn't see dust, dirt, or spills that weren't at least five feet off the ground. If cleaning were left to him, oh... I swear we'd have lived in the equivalent of one of those forensic body farms....Ma! Don't be fooled!!!!!!!

    MSU, I'm not sure about the rules here, but will check them out. I wonder if they'd be required to like show-tunes?
