Landlords in the Twin Ports can pretty much write their own tickets.  With a 3% vacancy rate, filling empty properties doesn't require much effort.

But as the community saw last week, some local landlords are interested in a pilot program called the Landlord Incentives Program, an effort to make it easier for folks with criminal pasts to secure a place to live and for landlords to rent to them.
