Mississauga Residents Go Three Weeks Without AC Due to Repairs


Published August 4, 2016 at 7:32 pm


It’s been a hot month for the whole city, but a few Mississauga residents had it even worse.

After three whole weeks without it, air conditioning has finally been restored to Barbertown Co-operative Homes, a highrise co-op building near Highway 403 and Hurontario Street.

According to NewsTalk 1010, tenants were dripping sweat in their homes and even had trouble breathing. One woman claimed that it was 45 degrees inside her mother’s apartment at one point.

To prevent themselves from overheating, some residents resorted to taking icy-cold showers and going to sleep fully naked.

The AC was restored Wednesday night, and signs were put up thanking residents for their cooperation during the repairs.

“We diligently supervise our contractors to ensure that repairs are always made in a timely fashion on your behalf and we strive to maintain high standards on the maintenance of our building systems, but sometimes things happen beyond our control,” the notice goes on to say.
