Article Summary: 

The article discusses the transformation of Ontario's Condominium Act of 1998 into a consumer protection legislation through the creation of the Condominium Authority Tribunal (C.A.T.). The C.A.T. aims to resolve condominium-related disputes through negotiation, mediation, and adjudication phases. Proponents praise its efficiency and reduced costs, while critics raise concerns about the level of jurisprudential oversight and potential procedural chaos caused by extended back-and-forth between parties. The lack of clarity on cost awards and the C.A.T.'s ability to interfere with condo corporations' management policies are also contentious issues. The article highlights some controversial decisions of the C.A.T. and questions the government's ability to solve problems that condo owners can create.
