We are not attorneys and can not give legal advice. I suggest you read the attached link on the law and go from there. You lease and other factors will come into play and we are not privileged to your information or contract, so commenting could jeopardize your situation.
I don't know where you saw that you are entitled to 35 days notice but typically:
If a tenant is behind in rent (or breaking any of the other terms of the rental agreement), the landlord can give a 3 Day Pay (or remedy the situation to get back in compliance) or Quit Notice.
While a tenant has a lease, both sides need to adhere to the terms of the lease; otherwise, a landlord typically needs to give tenants that have lived in a property less than 1 year 30 days notice & those tenants that have occupied their unit 1 year or more 60 days notice to vacate.
If the landlord wants to change the terms of the tenancy he would typically have to give a 30 day notice (& the change can not take effect until the tenants lease, if he has one, expires).
Re: you question about if you could use your legal argument, you would need to speak to an attorney.
