671 street level glass door after putting in a new lock. (October 2019)

I was given a key by manager (Oliver) of my rent receiver (Dianna) when Samir Abdellah was using unit 3 with another boy who wore a security jacket with word “SECURITY” printed in big bold letters on the back. Samir Abdellah was watching when I was given a key (in exchange for the old key) upstairs at my unit Door 2, I asked Oliver what happened to the lock , he replied quote” I changed it “unquote. (A tall person by the name of Jason was using unit #4 at the time in 2019). That day Oliver knocked on my door #2 , before opening the door, I asked him why he was knocking, he replied that he wanted to give me a key, I asked him why what happened to the lock, he replied “…,…” Samir Abdalleh used to drive a old model black VW Ontario licence plate CECC 220

Update January 23 of 2021:

this lock stopped unlocking with this key on January 22 of 2021 as documented under my precautionary notes with details. Not sure weather this is due to mechanical malfunction or some key adjustment, or key hole cleaning requirement.

Updated February 02 of 2021:

This morning went outside a for short walk around 06h15 AM and used key to check and it was unlocking normally. Repeated the same test around 09h00 AM after I came back from groceries – further testing in progress .
