Among remnants of signs from a recent Parkdale rent strike — including a meeting notice that proclaims “we will not be pushed out” — is a new, bright yellow flyer with repeated images of a man’s face, claiming he is #TheManWhoSoldParkdale.

The Toronto realtor has become the target of an anonymous campaign in the neighbourhood, which advocates say is rapidly gentrifying and leaving low-income tenants struggling with rising rents. The Man Who Sold Parkdale campaign says it’s taking a stand against “displacement realty,” which it defines as selling affordable homes at inflated prices, where new landlords force the old tenants out to increase rents.
