    it is highly obvious after years of consumer pleading, fighting, proving, suffering, that the government benefits from this monopoly in one shape or another …and this to the detriment of Ontario homeowners…..

    There are some excellent points here including the fact that currently, the Ontario New Home Warranty Program “backstopped” by Tarion does not fall under the insurance regulators. As a result, Tarion is allowed to collect the obscene amount of revenue they do in relation to the amount they pay in claims. The current system I believe is not insurance but more of a rip off for homeowners, a protection scheme for builders and a fraud by Tarion on the province of Ontario.

    In our circumstance we had a custom home built for us. Our builder turned out to be an incompetent contractor and fraud…contemptuous of any complaints. We found Tarion over the years to be in bed with that builder. Of course legal counsel, parasites themselves, only compounded our losses.
    It would be a gargantuan effort to replicate here our chronology of the events to support our condemnations. Nor is it fair to you readers to wade through hundreds of pages of our files.
    From your own experiences you may understand why we condemn the current Rob Ford government for overlooking Tarion’s conduct. This PC Government resembles the powerful political friends and beneficiaries, who overlooked the chronic behaviour of the infamous predators Jeffrey Epstein and Harry Weinstein.
    One other comment, Consumer Reform mentioned that …Tarion has continued to license builders with poor records, says the Auditor General’s report, pg. 7: “builders with poor warranty records continued to get licenses from Tarion.”
    We believe that a major step forward to substantially reducing major incompetent and dishonest building contractors is to establish a Report Card system on all contractors, much the same as Consumer Reviews of products on-line – Amazon, Costco…by verified purchasers i.e. homeowners. Leave Tarion out of the picture!
