Canada, Ontario

I'm in a rather unpleasant situation. I've rushed into signing a lease for one room for July 1st on June 30 for one year. Three days later I informed the landlord I will not occupy the room and asked to cancel the lease, I've tried in many possible ways to work this one out with the landlord but the landlord was very unapproachable and when he did reply he replied with "you have a lease and you have to honor it". I never moved into the room or entered it since that initial seeing in June.

As for most leases, you have to pay the first and last month rent which I did when I signed the lease. Now I have paid July's month but August is one week ahead and I'm 100% he will ask for the rent. I want to know what are my rights in this situation? I don't want to pay but I want to know what path I can take and be in right side of the law.
