In the wake of a Toronto public housing fraud investigation involving two employees at a west-end highrise, a pair of recovered crack addicts allege a third worker connected to the building accepted bribes too.

Carol McLoughlin and her friend Max told the Toronto Star they paid the superintendent of 190 Woolner Ave. $100 a week to sleep in janitorial rooms between 2002 and 2003.

Allegations of possibly a third person taking bribes at the troubled highrise and problems dating back as far as five years ago, came as surprise yesterday to officials of the agency that houses about 164,000 tenants in 350 highrise and townhouse complexes.


“We’ve had no complaints or allegations in relation to that superintendent,” said Keiko Nakamura, chief operating officer for the housing corporation.


  • Housing Corporation President Derek Ballantyne said it will investigate the allegations.
