Leaky condo developer Audain to receive Order of BC

 

Leaky condo developer,

Michael Audain,

to receive Order of BC

 

The Government of British Columbia has announced that Michael Audain, one of BC's most notorious leaky condo developers, will receive BC's highest honour for outstanding achievement.

Polygon, Michael Audain's company, developed, built and sold thousands of leaky rotten condos.

Owning a  leaky rotten Polygon home caused significant financial and emotional stress for thousands of British Columbians.

The government has medals of honour for leaky condo developers but continues to refuse to provide financial relief to leaky condo owners.

Leaky condo owners are invited to protest the awarding of the Order of BC Medal to Michael Audain at Government House in Victoria on June 14, 2007.
