“Toronto’s fire captain, said he estimates at least 80 per cent of renters in Toronto do not have contents insurance. Most renters wrongly assume they’re covered under their landlord’s insurance”
It’s called ‘personal responsibility’. The landlord is not your mommy who needs to require you to get insurance. If you required landlords to provide it it would just raise rental rates for everyone. You are an adult – determine how much insurance you need and shop around for the best rate. Stop making everything someone else’s problem.
