A paralegal firm owned and operated by Catherine April Stewart of Landlord Legal inc has been in our website news since May of 2013, when April Stewart of landlord Legal inc was hired to evict a tenant of Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra and Donald Dykstra of Dykstra Bros Electric of Barrie.
The tenant in question had a valid Medical Marihuanna license to possess and grow his own medical marihuana as well as signed permission from the three Dykstra Brothers themselves but was forced to file allegations in Human Rights against Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra, Donald Dykstra, Catherine April Stewart and her alleged boyfriend,process server and private investigator Paul T Smith when they attempted to evict him from his 40 Ellen Street Barrie Ontario apartment.
Landlord Legal inc had moved her files and set up another office at 44 Sykes Street N Meaford, Ontario with the help of her alleged boyfriend, retired OPP officer, process server and private investigator Paul T Smith, in June of 2013, but recently closed her Meaford office in June 2015 with the allegations against her and Paul Smith in Human Rights.
Landlord Legal now runs her small paralegal firm from her home in Walter’s Falls and a small Barrie office located at 117 Bayfield Street Suite 101 located in the alleyway connection between the two buildings.

HUMAN RIGHTS HEARING FOR OWNER OF LANDLORD LEGAL INC, CATHERINE APRIL STEWART & PAUL SMITH WERE RECENTLY JOINED TOGETHER WITH RALPH DYKSTRA, WILLIAM DYKSTRA & DONALD DYKSTRA AND IS NOW SET TO BE HEARD ON JANUARY 20th 2016
Landlord Legal has of September 2015, not informed the Human Rights Tribunal of the changes in her business address for the representation of her clients, Dykstra Bros Electric set for a hearing on January 20th 2016 or for the Human Rights allegations brought against Paul Smith and herself which is still awaiting a hearing date.There has been a long history of allegations of harassment , un necessary court delays, several abuses of the court system and many other allegations that are still pending and awaiting investigation.
C A Stewart contacted the Law Society claiming there are pending court actions involving herself and the tenant which has stalled the allegations into being investigated.It has been 2 years since this was filed in Barrie Civil Courts on October 22nd 2015 and the case of Stewart vs Ross has yet to have a hearing.
Catherine Stewart has not informed the Law Society of Upper Canada of the pending Human Rights allegations that were filed against her in May of 2014 and now pending for a hearing January 20th 2016. The paralegal was also involved with a Landlord and Tenant hearing in September 2013 along with her Dykstra clients allegations of illegal entry and illegal lock change but did not show for the hearing sending another paralegal, stating she was out of the country but FAILED TO NOTIFY THE OTHER PARTY OR PROVE HER CLAIM.
To date, Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal has filed numerous FALSE ALLEGATIONS with the Barrie police concerning the ex tenant, all to be listed with the related video from the Barrie detective Sgt Steele investigation and all the incident reports from the involved Barrie Police officers and Landlord Legal inc., in another related upcoming posting.
The Barrie police have numerous times REFUSED the ex tenant to file CRIMINAL HARASSMENT CHARGES against this paralegal after he tried several times to file complaints against her for the numerous false reports she has continued to file. A further complaint to the Law Society is still pending on these harassment grounds, as she was well aware the allegations were false and of the pending civil and Human Rights hearings with this ex tenant she was and is still involved in.
The Barrie Civil Courts have continued to ignore this citizens rights when on July 11th 2014, the tenant motioned for a speedy trial,the civil court has also prejudiced and ignored the rights of this individual when it stripped his rights to serve legal documents in ways addressed in the Rules of Civil Court Procedures and ordered that documents only be served by email without probable cause or justifying its reasons.
Judge Kalowski further breached the Rules of Civil Procedures when he took Catherine April Stewart into his chambers after a scheduled motion without the other side being present, stating “it was on an unrelated matter”, but Catherine April Stewart stated in court on that day “it was her first time in Civil court”, again showing the prejudice of Judge Kalwoski and the Barrie courts.
A pending complaint to the Law Society to investigate the allegations of civil court Judge Kalwoskis breaches of the rules and discrimination and violation of his rights towards the Barrie citizen.Transcripts of that Motion Hearing will be presented to the Law Society for an investigation into these allegations.
IT IS TRULY A MESSED UP SYSTEM WITH THE LAW SOCIETY OF UPPER CANADA INVESTIGATION, WHEN SERIOUS ALLEGATIONS, ARE DELAYED FOR YEARS, WHEN THE OFFENDING PARALEGAL ONLY HAS TO FILE ANY FALSE CLAIM IN COURT, THEN DELAY THE PENDING COURT ACTIONS INDEFINITELY !!
Any disgruntled parties that have any additional information you would like to pass on concerning, Catherine April Stewart of Landlord Legal inc, private investigator & retired police officer Paul T Smith or Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra, Donald Dykstra of the Dykstra Bros Electric of Barrie, we would love to hear more from you.
Please Call, write or email us anytime with the details.
The Canada Revenue Agency ha fired 14 employees and suspended another 18 more employees over the past year for unauthorized access of computer files as the agency responds to criticism that it isn’t doing enough to protect the privacy of Canadians.
News of the disciplinary action comes on the heels of a damning audit report last fall by the federal privacy commissioner. Auditors found managers were unaware that some Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) employees had been inappropriately accessing records from thousands of taxpayers for years undiscovered.
“I think the numbers do reflect that we take the problem quite seriously and that we do follow through when incidents do occur,” said Susan Gardner-Barclay, the Assistant Commissioner of the CRA, without providing any further details on the CRA employee firings and suspensions.
Eight former CRA officials have been charged in connection to a six-year corruption investigation by the RCMP, which announced the end of the probe in February.
Senior CRA officials were testifying Tuesday as part of a broader study by the Commons committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics into concerns over identity theft. The agency was on the defensive over its approach to data breaches by mail.
The agency confirmed that over 2,983 data breaches took place in 2013 – almost all related to mail going to the wrong location – and that 46 per cent of those cases involved personal information. Yet the CRA acknowledged that the vast majority of taxpayers who have had their information sent to the wrong place are never made aware of the breach. Further, the CRA only told the privacy commissioner about 479 of the breaches.
Ms. Gardner-Barclay said the agency’s decisions on whether or not to inform taxpayers or the privacy commissioner about a breach are based on an internal risk assessment used to determine the seriousness of the release.
The CRA said it reclaims about 95 per cent of mail that was sent to the wrong place, but also acknowledged that it can only measure breaches that have been reported back to the agency, meaning the true numbers could be much higher.
Officials said one of the main causes of data breaches is because automated mail sorters place letters meant for two separate addresses into a single envelope.
“It’s usually a machine error,” said Ms. Gardner-Barcley, explaining that virtually all mail has been automated. “It’s very rare that we would be putting documents in envelopes by hand.”
NDP MP and committee member Charmaine Borg – who has dealt with a constituent who received mail from CRA meant for someone else – said Canadians should be told when their information has been breached.
The NDP had previously asked through a written request in Parliament for data on all breaches going back to 2006, however the CRA said it only began tracking such statistics last year.
“I think it’s very concerning,” she said after the meeting, arguing the CRA should be forced to inform Canadians whenever there is a breach. “As a Canadian, you give your information to the government and you should have faith that the government is going to protect that information. But to not even be aware of when your personal information was breached or put at risk? It’s a problem in my view.”
NO MORE WAITING FOR UPDATES TO : Catherine Stewart VS Privacy Violators website small claims case SCC #1851-13
The following series of posts, is to bring the followers of the Catherine April Stewart VS Privacy Violators website claims and bring the full progress of the allegations in the Barrie, Ontario Small Claims Court, Catherine April Stewart filed against this website from October 2013.
Catherine Stewart had previously brought a motion for her personal lawsuit to be heard together with her Dykstra Bros Electric clients, Ralph Dykstra, Bill Dykstra and Donald Dykstra SCC #1852-13 which was heard in Barrie courts March 12 2015, and then did a motion for them to be separated after 17 months of waiting.
The civil judge at the hearing did not hear Catherine Stewart’s case, although there was little evidence submitted by Stewart and no witnesses from either side to be called upon during the Dykstra hearing, instead he had allowed her motion, and put Stewart’ hearing off until June 30th 2015 further delaying the Law Society complaints filed by the ex tenant against her paralegal firm, Landlord Legal inc.
A copy of the civil court transcripts with the two attending Barrie police officers testimony and Paul Richardson of Central Locksmith statements from the hearing have been requested and a letter to the director of the Law Society requesting a time extension is to be filed after receiving them for the illegal entry and illegal lock change allegations filed from August 2013 against Catherine Stewart and her firm.
Other complaints lodged with the Law Society against Catherine Stewart were for constantly delaying and wasting court time deliberately when she claimed to be out of the country for the September 24 2013 LTB hearing and many other court dates she did not attend or notify the other party involved in civil matters for the retrieval of the funds owed from an LTB order she personally signed July 2013, which the tenant had to take to civil court to get and for the 2 civil cases she had filed against Privacy Violators, including not showing up for the mandatory settlement conference after filing her lawsuits, and the many motions during the last 2 years in which given lots of notice but failed to show. All the orders and the judgement from these cases will be posted soon on the website.
Privacy Violators website has received many email complaints about Landlord Legal inc doing the same thing to them in past LTB hearings as well as vexatious claims she has brought up against other tenants and not provide disclosure, prove her claims she had filed with invoices and or proof and then turn around and withdraw her claims she had brought forth in LTB to intimidate or scare the tenant into submission. We have asked several people to provide documentation for these past allegations so we may add them to our own complaints or help them file there own personal complaints against Stewart for the Law Society of Upper Canada.
Catherine April Stewart of Landlord Legal inc has been allowed to manipulate the Barrie police, Landlord and Tenant Board and the Barrie Civil courts on many occasions and with the many emails we have received on our website concerning her past actions regarding this will bring it up in LSUC complaints as well.
Check out Landlord Legal inc new website changed last year and read the tenant story she has posted on her front page, and then come back and read the many complaints and stories posted here on Privacy Violators website.
The Small Claims lawsuit Catherine Stewart had filed for $25,000 for allegedly damaging her paralegal firms reputation and other allegations against Privacy Violators website, filed in October 2013, and then amended late last year, by Stewart, when the Barrie court told her she was in the wrong court to have our website shut down have yet to finalize and see the inside of a courtroom.
Catherine April Stewart of Landlord Legal inc has wasted the civil courts time by not showing up when fighting to get the order paid from LTB and repeatedly FAILING to notify the other party that her paralegal firm had filed the lawsuit against , for the mandatory settlement conference, and for many motions for the #1851-13 & #1852-13 cases heard.
This is NOT THE FIRST TIME April Stewart of Landlord Legal inc has failed to show or to notify the other side for civil cases or Landlord & Tenant Board tribunal dates that were set and provided to her well within the time limits given by the courts.
The numerous Law Society of Upper Canada complaints previously filed in 2013 & 2014 against April Stewart of Landlord Legal inc by her clients Dykstra Bros Electric inc ex tenant, and also against another private practice paralegal associated with her firm Landlord Legal inc, Howard Paul Tavroges for privacy issues were put on hold by the LSUC until the current court matters filed from April Stewart are heard in civil court.The complaints that were filed do not show up anywhere on the LSUC website, not even as outstanding complaints or pending complaints so there is no way to know there are complaints previously filed and on record.
This is another tactic used by paralegals such as April Stewart & Howard Tavroges to delay courts, frustrate and waste time and money !!
** Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal inc has June 30th 2015 to hear her allegations she filed October 2013 when she filed her claim against this website. Catherine Stewart failed to show for the Small Claims Court mandatory settlement conference set for the allegations she made against us. An order was made for Stewart to pay the tenant for NOT NOTIFYING the tenant or the court that she did not intend on being present for this hearing. Landlord Legal inc clients, Dykstra Bros Electric also failed to show or notify the tenant or the court that they also had no intentions of paying the order nor for attending this mandatory hearing.
Allegations that Privacy Violators had damaged her Dykstra Bros Electric clients and Landlord legal paralegal firm reputation after posting actual police incident reports and claims of harassment, illegal lock change, illegal entry which were directed by April Stewart to the locksmiths while Barrie Police stood by and watched her do an illegal act and did nothing while they were acting under the authority of her Landlord Legal inc paralegal firm in July 2013 cannot be to damaging to her firm as she does not seem interested in ending this long dispute and does not attend her own lawsuit to justify her claims !!
The past topics and postings on Privacy Violators website of the actual police incident reports, Law Society of Upper Canada complaints and all the direct court documents that supported it’s allegations following April Catherine Stewart, owner of Landlord Legal inc, actions against a past tenant of Dykstra Bros Electric of Barrie, Ontario whom she was representing led Stewart to file a Small Claims case against this website.

It is also states claims of Medical Marihuana Access Program privacy violation issues plus threats of reprisal, acts of reprisal, harassment plus the illegal reasons stated in the N5 that Stewart attempt to evict him on un Constitutional grounds.
The court hearings between the tenant and Dykstra Bros Electric started back in May 2013 when the tenant had taken the landlords, Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra and Don Dykstra to the Barrie Landlord and Tenant Board tribunal for discussing private, confidential Health Canada Medical Marihuana Access program information with their very long time family friend and tenant, Nancy Groves.

The LTB tribunal hearings did not end in May between the tenant and Dykstra Bros Electric with a simple apology.Nooooo
Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra and Don Dykstra of Dykstra bros Electric decide to hire Catherine April Stewart of Landlord Legal inc on May 13th to evict the tenant.
On May 23rd 2013,Landlord legal inc or one of her agents posted a letter on behalf of her clients, the Dykstras, openly displaying private and confidential Medical Marihuana Access Program (MMAP) information concerning the tenant along with a “24 hour Intent to Enter” notice.The letter further demanded the tenant produce MMAP license information to her agent that was to perform the “Routine Maintenance” as she claimed in the 24 hour the intent to enter notice.
Paul Smith, acting agent for Landlord Legal entered 40 Ellen Street, Barrie for the notice, though a letter was given to Landlord Legal at Catherine Stewarts old Barrie office at 117 Bayfield Street, the same morning as receiving her notice and revealing letter explaining a birthday party was already scheduled.
Read further details on the “Routine Maintenance” that turned into a full blown inspection with 100’s of photos being taken, many of personal and private documents, information belonging to the tenant.

The tenant was posting all of his LTB hearing information following his adventures through Landlord and Tenant tribunal complaints against the paralegal and her clients and Stewart wanted the postings stopped and this website shut down.
Case is mediated by LTB mediator Dawn Lewis, Community Legal clinic paralegal Howard Tavroges ( NO LONGER WITH ORILLIA LEGAL CLINIC, though his current Upper Law Society of Canada profile still shows the Legal Clinic phone number and fax) the tenant and Catherine Stewart.
The mediated agreement order was to return last months rent and tenant would voluntarily move out on August 15th 2013 to file his Human Rights claim in peace and his living environment was already poisoned from the Dykstras revealing his confidential MMAP information.
** On move out day, August 15th 2013, Catherine Stewart of landlord Legal and her clients were present at the tenants 40 Ellen Street, Barrie, Ontario residence and called Barrie police on false pretenses to the unit to watch Catherine Stewart and her clients instruct Central Lock & Key of Barrie to break the front door lock, cut the security chain and enter the unit to change the locks.
** Did we mention that the tenant was moving out already voluntarily and had a court order that instructed Landlord Legal to apply for a Sheriffs order if not vacated as per agreement. Dykstra Bros Electric did not want to honor the agreement they made in LTB court July 18th 2013 and signed by Catherine Stewart with full authority to do so from William Dykstra, the only Dykstra brother present in court.

The Dykstra brothers properties have been in the Barrie news several times in the past for a drug bust at 24 Victoria Street, Barrie, Ontario when Manny P was raided by the Barrie Drug and Enforcement unit and arrested for having an illegal grow operation with approximately 80 plants in May 2011. Many police calls,approximately 8 reportable calls, since 2011 have been called to the 24 Victoria Street residence for various reasons.
The Dykstra’s brothers property at 40 Ellen Street, Barrie Ontario hit the front page in the Barrie Advance, a local newspaper,a few years back with clothes hanging from every available spot on the outside of the residence. I guess the resident at the time, Kara did not realize that Barrie has a clothes line by law which she did not adhere to causing complaints about the 80 year old house she rented looking like a slum shack and having local residents to complain to the city of Barrie about the matter.
Other Dykstra brothers property have also been in the news.. we update as we find more news

The complaints were filed on June 8th 2013, from a Barrie tenant alleging Diane Smith had harassed him by sending a letter representing herself as a legal “lawyer” and representative for Nancy Groves,when she was not legal to do so.
Diane Smith did not respond to any correspondence from the Upper Law Society of Canada nor did she appear at the administrative hearing set for her December 13th, 2013.

The Upper Law Society: Diane Lynn Smith Decision and Order – heard by Hon. John D Ground,QC (chair) on December 13th,2013 in Toronto,Ontario is shown below.
Diane Lynn Smith is also being further investigated by the ULSC, as she was also hired by another paralegal, April Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal Services,Meaford,Ontario to represent Nancy Groves (involved tenant) on behalf of Dykstra Bros Electric. A civil case is currently being considered against Smith and will be filed soon and all pending court cases against Diane Smith will be posted here with the follow up posts.
A court date has yet to be set for the Ontario Human Rights case filed against Ralph Dykstra, Bill Dykstra and Don Dykstra of Dykstra Bros Electric, Barrie,Ontario.
We will continue to follow all the court cases involved with Dykstra/Groves/Smith/Stewart that started as guilty of PRIVACY VIOLATIONS in Landlord and Tenant Board tribunal court, May 7th 2013 in Barrie, Ontario.
These privacy violations and actions from the Dykstras, March 26th 2013 along with the LTB court verdict from May 7th 2013, escalated into further alleged complaints concerning an illegal lock change at 40 Ellen Street, Barrie,Ontario, orchestrated by April Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal,Ralph Dykstra,Bill Dykstra and Don Dykstra of Dykstra Bros Electric to a purposely BAD MEDIATED LTB AGREEMENT to get the tenant out, an Ontario Human Rights pending court case and three (3) civil cases pending that will all be followed and presented here on the Privacy Violators.com website.
You can read further details of the Civil cases that have been filed in our next post. Photos and documents to be uploaded soon for you to review.
One thing is for sure !!
We have learned from past experiences, that certain paralegals do deal in BAD FAITH DEALS purposely, just to get tenants out, to please their client, the landlord.. that is the private paralegals objective… anyway at all – legally or illegally.. they feel they are protected because they are paralegals.
Miss Groves,an involved tenant, was also represented by the same Meaford paralegal, April Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal, in the court ordered appearance for Miss Groves to produce documents to the court to prove her rent was paid directly to the landlords from other sources.Dykstra Bros Electric received Nancy Groves rent payments,in part, from the Mental Health Association and also in part from Ontario Disability and paid directly to the Barrie landlords.
April Catherine Stewart did not have the documents that were requested of Nancy Groves by the courts on the ordered date to appear, though sufficient time was given, Landlord Legal instead decided to waste the time of the Barrie courts, Simcoe Legal Services and the Barrie tenant filing the case against Dykstra Bros for the FALSELY MEDIATED agreement and the money they owe.
April Stewart had also wasted the Barrie Landlord & Tenant tribunal courts time as well as the time of 3 witnesses that were summoned against her clients the Dykstras for the alleged illegal lock change at 40 Ellen Street. April Stewart is currently being investigated by the Upper Law Society of Canada for her participation in this alleged matter.
Stewart had also neglected to properly inform the involved Barrie tenant, although she had phone number, email address and Simcoe Legal Service contacts to contact easily, or the LTB courts that she was allegedly out of the country and was unable to attend. The tenant withdrew the matter to deal with it in the Ontario Human Rights court in Toronto.
** The papers supporting Groves claim were finally mailed to the Simcoe Legal Services paralegal helping with the civil case against the Dykstras and forwarded the appropriate documents to the tenant.
One of the Dykstra brothers, Bill Dykstra will be summoned to Superior Court to answer for their financial status and the reasons the LTB order and Civil court orders were not followed.
Please contact the Upper Law Society of Canada, if you have had dealings with Diane Smith this year or have had bad experience with Landlord Legal to report.
We will continue to update the past posts, photos and documents that have been slightly delayed because of minor pending matters very shortly.
Another example post to emphasize to you how important it is to safeguard your personal information everyday and everywhere.
The Ontario Provincial Police have charged a person they believed had taken the identity of Brian Perrault of Toronto, eight years past.
Perrault, a gentleman from Toronto Ontario,not knowing however realized that his identity actually had been taken.. however attempting to repair the damage that wasn’t a straightforward or easy task.
In fact, it didn’t finish for Brian til the OPP pulled over a tow truck, January 27th, 2012 on route Highway 400 north of Toronto for having no tail lights.
The OPP Chief Supt. Don Bell said the driver of the tow truck provided a false name to the police however another officer arrived and recognized the driver as a wanted man. he was arrested.
This started a twenty month investigation by the OPP that went back as so much as 2005.
Robert Shawn Maitland, 47, of Midland, Ont., was arrested and charged with 57 offenses together with fraud, possession of stolen property, identity theft and breach of recognizance. He is in custody pending a court appearance in Newmarket, Ontario on Thursday Nov 14th 2013.
Cybercrime is one amongst our biggest problems, OPP Insp. Greg Walton said, adding education is key to protecting yourself from identity theft.
The reason I picked up on this identity theft case, is to show that identity theft is happening a lot more frequently, and it is not always for financial gains.
There are many ways to obtain personal information, and plenty of ways in which it is used. There are a lot of reasons why somebody may need or want to assume another persons identity over their own.
The problems throughout the eight year length that Brian had his identity taken first started once he began receiving traffic tickets from places he had never been.
Perrault’s drivers license was eventually suspended, leaving him unable to drive, leaving him unable to keep up employment for a while. The collection agencies started calling after he struggled to find work without being able to drive.
The most frightening ordeal occurred late in 2011 as he was driving to his grandmother’s funeral.
Brian said he was pulled over by an OPP officer who demanded he shut off his engine and turn over his keys.
Soon after, more police officers had arrived. “It was terrifying,” he said.
Police say a man using Brian Perrault’s identity was wanted on warrants for crimes and traffic violations in Ontario and Alberta.
Fortunately, another police officer at the scene recognized the forementioned wasn’t the wanted man.
“But by the time I was allowed to go, my grandmother’s funeral was over,” Perrault said.
A few months later the police arrested and charged a person with the identity theft allegations.
You can read additional information about Brian Perraults ordeal and follow this identity theft case from Sun News website here from November 12th, 2013:
Protecting your personal information is even more important today with technology advances,credit card scanners and the wide use of the internet.
Social networks like facebook and twitter are becoming huge problems for persons posting personal information to their online profiles and later regretting that action.
Remember that it is your choice to post the information but please think of the after effects that it cause you later in life.
Other future posts are in the works discussing credit card scanners and the most recent technology used by professional identity thieves.
For now all we can suggest is to educate yourself, protect yourself and your personal information.
