TORONTO – Landlords of insolvent T. Eaton Co. Ltd. want an Ontario judge to stop a nation-wide fire sale of Eaton's merchandise because it is turning malls into flea markets. Cadillac Fairview Corp. Ltd. yesterday filed documents saying it wants an end to the liquidation, which involves an estimated $600-million in Eaton's merchandise.

The stores include some of the company's biggest -- the Toronto Eaton Centre, Victoria Eaton Centre and Pacific Centre in Vancouver.
