My wife and I own a semi detached house in Cole Harbour NS that we rent full time on Airbnb. Bylaws coming into effect this April 2020 will be looking to shut us down completely to protect the hotel industry and its low wage jobs. We are in an area of semi detached homes with no hotels or bnb within several Miles. We are no threat to them. We also dont run a party house . We screen our guests very well and have had a run of over 30 straight excellent guests. No complaints at all from any of our neighbours that we know of. I feel the local airbnb group needs to get together to form a cohesive unit that can effectively speak with our city and provincial officials. I ask all hosts in NS HRM to respond to this and ensure that we dont go down without a fight

This is a shame @Karen-And-Paul0 , and seems to be happening a great deal in various cities across the country. Wishing you and other Halifax hosts the best of luck in trying to stop your city from banning Airbnbs.
