 A Mississauga homeowner is facing backlash after posting a racist Kijiji ad seeking a tenant for his basement apartment. 
“Black guys pls no call” was typed in the description box of the online ad to rent a one-bedroom basement unit  in Mississauga.The ad was originally posted on Aug. 21, but it was updated the next day with the line removed. There are currently 143 registered basement apartments in Mississauga.
