The whole building is infested. My apartment is infested. And it took 28 days from the time I notified them until they did a heat treatment, so of course the bugs could not be contained to the mattress or even the bedroom.
The apartment was heat-treated on Wednesday. I came home to find 4 live bedbugs, a couple of whom looked pretty frisky. I complained again. Apparently, the office person had a report, but did not share it with me. Strange...Anyway, I complained long and loud --- and since the
building person has been unhelpful from the get-go, I have taken my concerns elsewhere and will be visited by a health inspector on Monday. Meanwhile, I am told that my apartment will be heat-treated again (no date) because "it's guaranteed". Which probably means it won't cost them anything.
There is no regard for the tenants. I guess she assumes we all live lives of leisure and can take off to the Bahamas or something. My apartment is now uninhabitable and I have no idea when it WILL be inhabitable.
Oh, and by the way, if you are disabled or a senior, don't expect help prepping your apartment. After becoming quite insistent, I was given 3 places to call. I called them and several more. They don't provide help with this stuff. Of course I could have possibly gotten a pest control company to do it for a fee. I am 66 and on a pension. I am unable to supplement it at this time because again, my apartment is uninhabitable between the infestation and the chaos from the prep for the heat treatment.
I will be getting legal advice to see if I can reclaim any expenses. The apartment has been unhealthy and unlivable for a month now. I am here sporadically only because I can't afford to pay for other lodging. Meanwhile, I have a seriously infected bug bit for which I have sought medical attention and may still wind up in emergency if the antibiotics don't help. Swelling and pain are intense.
The woman running the office is incompetent. And the building is run for the benefit of the staff. Sad, because it is a beautiful building and the last building manager was on top of things.

Emmanuel Hamilton aka Manny Hamilton of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada is a rapist. My rapist. It all happened when we met at the office. I worked as an intern at Cable 14 in Hamilton. Manny worked as a "video guy" which is just a silly way of saying he was everybody's bitch. He was the coffee boy.
Anyway, Manny started doing this show.. I think it was called MMA Cave. I would help out with the video production of this show. Manny and I started chatting. He wasn't much to look at.. but he seemed
nice. I was new to the city and eager to make friends.
We started hanging out. I would hang with him after shooting, nothing serious... just friends. I got the feeling he didn't have a very happy home life. His girlfriend was said to be controlling, manipulative and cruel, often telling him who he could/couldn't talk to and controlling his finances. Of course I found out later his girlfriend is infamous for being a psychopath, if you google Laura Smith Hamilton you'll see what I mean.
Manny stayed late at work one night. He said he had a lot of editing to catch up on. I had to work late as well. He asked me if I'd like to go for a drink, and I said sure. We went in his car, I attached a photo of this car to the entry because this is where the rape took place.
We were driving to Starbucks, only a 5 minute drive. It's literally just right around the corner from Cable 14. We got our coffee, and continued driving down King St W. Past the Pioneer. Into the ghetto, respectively. I assumed he was looking for a spot to pull over and hang out. I was right.
We pulled into an empty lot off King St W off Tisdale St S. Parked way back where we were hidden by trees. I thought it was weird, but Hamilton is very populated so maybe he just wanted privacy? I was right.
We sat and talked for a few minutes. He kissed me, and I did kiss back. I won't lie. I was okay with that. But before I knew it he forced himself on me. He's thin, but tall.. and I'm 5'3" and weigh about 110 lbs soaking wet. I couldn't get him off me.
I begged him not to do it. I asked him to stop. I told him no. I told him it hurt. But he didn't stop. Afterward, he drove me back to Cable 14, dropped me off and left. After that he didn't come in very often and I came to find out he was working somewhere else.
After talking to some people, I was told he has a sketchy past for drug use, spousal abuse, and was reported to have been arrested for child offending in the past. I was told that he tried to abduct children in St. Christopher's Park in 2012, and that he's a reputed sex offender.
I was tested, and found out I had STDs including chlamydia and herpes. Herpes cannot be cured. I now have this memory of him for my entire life. I will spread my story until he is stopped. I see now that Manny has children, Sawyer and Isla.. And I fear for their well beings. Not only is Emmanuel Hamilton a monster and a rapist, but his girlfriend Laura Smith is a maniac.
Please spread the word.

I personally don't have bedbugs in my apartment but they had a dog come and sniff the entire building so I think they are in some apartments.

There has been a bed bug infestation at this location.
