My own experience at the Board started in 2001 when I was a Board (then Tribunal) Member, but for the last 3 years I've been presenting in front of the Board as an agent, acting almost exclusively for landlords. Many ask me if I find it strange being on the other side of the bench, or which I prefer. I prefer this new life, as I'm an entrepreneurial sort, not well suited for government work. And I enjoy most days, bothered generally by questionable adjudication at times by Members who tend to have a tenant-centred slant and too broadly provide relief from eviction.
Out of the 45 or so Members, I'd say that there are only about 9 that I've run into who on a regular basis depart from the norm and arguably act outside their jurisdiction. I't s a problem, and I'd like to encourage others to speak out when they become the victim. I look forward to sharing my thoughts with you, and hearing of yours.
