Zamal Hossain - “Yes, I broke the law. Anything else?”

In a rare move, Ontario’s new home construction regulator has stripped a Toronto builder of his licence to construct new homes. Albion Building Consultant Inc. has a history of noncompliance from 2016. It was convicted of 11 violations, and fined $15,000 for each plus a $3,750 victim surcharge on each. The $206,250 fine remains unpaid and Zamal Hossain defiant. His wife, Farida Haque, was also convicted of acting as a vendor of a new home without being licensed.
Hossain says he was being investigated because of his race. “I’m a brown guy. English is my second language that’s why this happened in this country,”. Hossain claimed competing builders from Italian or Portuguese backgrounds routinely break the law but face no consequences like he does.
