|The Coalition Of Leaky Condo Owners (COLCO)
is a volunteer, non-profit group of leaky condo owners seeking 100% financial
compensation for the cost of reconstruction on their leaky rotten condos.
COLCO will assist and support municipal leaky condo owner groups without duplicating or trying to influence the local initiatives and efforts.
COLCO will lobby government and industry on behalf of leaky condo owners. Three of the initiatives we are currently working on are: i) a list of developers ii) a multi-billion dollar legal strategy iii) our latest initiative is a call for a complete moratorium on residential construction.
COLCO encourages every leaky condo owner to: participate in local groups in whatever manner you can; clip and collect letters to the editor and newspaper articles, and forward copies to your MP, MLA, and the Prime Minister (remember no postage is required to Ottawa K1A 0A6); write your own letters at least once a month; phone often on all open-line radio talk shows; join COLCO's Walkabout Club; most importantly, become involved and keep informed.
COLCO, through the extended families of leaky condo owners, believes that we will mobilize approximately 250,000 voters in the next federal and provincial elections. We also believe this is enough to completely eliminate certain federal or provincial parties in B.C., or in the very least cause split votes.
COLCO is the only voice truly representing leaky condo owners. We are not here to complain, but rather to help ourselves.
COLCO seeks support from all levels of government and all politicians.
COLCO is a non-partisan association of owners and remains politically unaligned.
