SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – A 100-year-old San Francisco woman who was involved in a lengthy and contentious eviction battle has died.
The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting Iris Canada passed away over the weekend after suffering a stroke.
Canada’s landlords had wanted to turn the Lower Haight apartment she’d lived in for decades into a condo.
She was eventually evicted last February and her case became a lightning rod for the debate over affordable housing in San Francisco.
A vigil is planned for tomorrow evening, starting at 5 PM, outside the building where she lived at 670 Page Street.
