All Lives Matter !! .. Except at Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario

The hash tags #Black lives matter and #All lives matter have been the public issue and in the news over the last couple of years.No matter what your race,creed,religion, or background we are suppose to have protection from the wrong doers in today’s society.

All lives matter is not something that Renu Mandhane, head of the Human Rights Commission, can say about the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, located at 655 Bay Street, where they operate their Mickey Mouse HRTO court system in Toronto, Canada.

The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (HRTO) is run by Registrar Richard Hennessy and is suppose to have lawyers, acting as impartial mediators when dealing with Human Rights allegations brought up to the Tribunal to be heard.

The HRTO constantly breaches its own mandate when dealing with issues brought forth by Canadian citizens who attempt to right the wrong done to them concerning violating their Human Rights in Canada.

Quoted from Social Justice Tribunals Ontario website : The Code prohibits:

  • Discrimination against a person because he or she has a relationship, association or dealing with someone who is identified by one of the grounds listed above.
  • Reprisal (a legal term that means punishment or retaliation) or threats of reprisal, because a person has either claimed their rights, refused to discriminate against someone else or was a participant in a human rights proceeding.
  • Sexual solicitation or advances by a person who is in a position to give or deny a benefit.
  • Reprisal or threats of reprisal for rejecting a sexual solicitation or advance.

Quoted from the Social Justice Tribunals Ontario website :

What We Do

If you believe you have experienced discrimination or harassment, you can file an application with the HRTO. The HRTO resolves claims of discrimination and harassment brought under the Human Rights Code in a fair, just and timely way.

The HRTO first offers parties the opportunity to settle the dispute through mediation. If the parties do not agree to mediation, or mediation does not resolve the application, the HRTO holds a hearing.

Hearings and mediations are held in Toronto, Hamilton, Kingston, London, North Bay, Ottawa, Sarnia, Sault Ste. Marie, St. Catharines, Sudbury, Timmins, Thunder Bay and Windsor. See also: Practice Direction on Hearings in Regional Centres.

HRTO decisions are made by adjudicators called vice-chairs or members. HRTO adjudicators have experience, knowledge and training in human rights law and issues.

The HRTO’s Rules of Procedure, Practice Directions and Policies apply to its proceedings

The HRTO is one of seven tribunals which form Social Justice Tribunals Ontario (SJTO). HRTO does its work in keeping with the core values of SJTO:

  • Accessibility
  • Fairness and independence
  • Timeliness
  • Transparency
  • Professionalism and public service

Harassment is a form of discrimination. The Code defines harassment as “a course of vexatious comment or conduct that is known, or ought reasonably to be known, to be unwelcome”. It includes offensive comments or actions directed at you that are related to one or more of the Code grounds.

Diane Lynn Smith of Barrie practiced law illegally under several names !

Law Society of Upper CanadaThe complaints to the Upper Law Society of Canada, against Diane Smith of Smith Paralegal Services, were originally filed on June 8th 2013.

A Barrie tenant alleged that 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.

In the complaint to the Upper Law Society of Canada (ULSC)  it had come to light that Diane Smith had been practicing law, but her Paralegal license was not in good standing with the ULSC for her to do so.

It was also determined that Smith Paralegal Services was engaging in professional misconduct when she harassed a tenant who was involved in several pending court cases with his landlords and had sent the letter that made references to her fees as “Attorney fees”.

Upon filing a civismithl claim in Barrie against Smith paralegal Services, an investigation has revealed that Diane Smith had been advertising and practicing law in Ontario under the name Diane Merry Paralegal Services, with the same address and cell number that had used in her other law practice.

There are no records for Diane Merry of Merry Paralegal Services, 58 Masters Drive, Barrie listed in the Upper Law Society of Canada   “Lawyer and Paralegal Directory“.


Further investigation has revealed that Diane Smith had sold or transferred her home at 58 Masters Drive, Barrie, Ontario, to M Phillips, on November 1 st, 2013, a couple of weeks before Diane Smith was scheduled to appear in front of the  Upper Law Society Hearing Panel December 13th, 2013.

Diane Smith DID NOT APPEAR before the ULSC panel to answer for the allegations against her and now appears to be hiding her assets, knowing the outcome of the ULSC allegations and pending lawsuits filed against her.

How A Maverick Took on the Online Privacy Violators & Won

Chris SoghoianChristopher Soghoian has been earning a reputation as the Ralph Nader of online privacy. He champions the rights of citizens while kicking the violators in the shins.

Mr Soghoian first came to his national prominence in 2006 when the FBI showed up at his house at 2 am to seize the computers on which he had created a site that allowed anyone to take advantage of an outrageous Transportation Security Administration digital dereliction and generate fake boarding passes on Northwest Airlines, with a default name of Osama Bin Laden. The Feds were not amused but closed the criminal investigation without filing charges – and three years later actually hired Soghoian to work in the Federal Trade Commission’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. His freewheeling maverick ways were not the best match for the staid government agency and he was released a year later, but by then his name was synonymous with divulging and publicizing security breaches at the highest levels.


Named & Shamed

Christopher Soghoian has “named and shamed” a remarkable array of leading online and telecom corporations:

  • Dropbox had a back door that allowed them full access to all uploaded files
  • Sprint Nextel had a secret website for law enforcement agents to GPS-track 8 million subscribers every year
  • Yahoo had a price list they charged the US government for turning over private information on their users
  • AT&T’s voicemail was open to phone-hacking due to their policy of not requiring a password to access it
  • Google’s Gmail had SSL encryption turned off by default
All of these major security lapses and privacy violations were active until Soghoian got through with them. Armed with little more than his blog and his innate sense of outrage, he led a one-man pitched battle with the forces of privacy evil for years until he was given a paid fellowship by the George Soros Open Society Foundation to publicly grade online and telecom privacy practices.
Simple Steps to Maintain Online Security
Maintaining personal privacy and security is not a lost cause. There are various simple steps anyone can take to strengthen the safety of their online data:
  • Don’t post anything anywhere (including “private” profiles) that reveals personal details
  • Do not share as joint accounts and profiles – your account is yours alone
  • Mix up your passwords and use at least half non-alphanumeric characters
  • Do not tell anyone your password
  • Never reply to spam emails
  • Turn on cookie notices in your browser
  • Check for https, (the “s” means secured ) lock icons and correct URLs before entering any sensitive data
  • Don’t reply or click on bank or payment facilitator emails that do not address you by name

We should greatly appreciate a lot more, the sacrifices that other people make for us to bring the security and privacy violations they discover into the public spotlight. With technology moving at an incredible pace toward the increased use and reliance of the internet, the need to make the internet giants, advertisers and other companies that hold, gain or manipulate the private information they obtain from us fully accountable for their actions.Chris-Soghoian

Join the fight to keep your privacy safe. Post or report any privacy violations that you find, wherever and however you can. Reporting the privacy violations to the proper authorities and bringing the issues into the public eye as much as possible is the best way to fight back against the odds and Protect Your Rights.

Is Your Landlord A “Slum Lord” ?



We have all heard the expression
“My landlord is a slum lord. What makes a landlord a slum lord ?



Wikipedia free encyclopedia defines it as :

A slumlord (or slum landlord) is a derogatory term for a landlord, generally an absentee landlord with more than one property, who attempts to maximize profit by minimizing spending on property maintenance, often in deteriorating neighborhoods. They may need to charge lower than market rent to tenants. Severe housing shortages allow slumlords to charge higher rents.

As many of these neighborhoods are often populated by poor minorities, the term “ghetto landlord” has also been used. A “retail slumlord” is one who keeps a shopping mall in a bad shape until the government buys or confiscates it.

The phrase slumlord first appeared in 1953, though the term slum landlord dates to 1893. ~ wikipedia

If you have landlords that do not follow the  municipal building codes, City by laws or the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006 there are things you can do about it. We are not talking about minor paint chips but more extreme living conditions like broken windows, heat or hot water unavailable to more extreme conditions.

Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia defines Landlord Harassment as :

“Landlord harassment is the willing creation, by a landlord or his agents, of conditions that are uncomfortable for one or more tenants in order to induce willing abandonment of a rental contract. Such a strategy is often sought because it avoids costly legal expenses and potential problems with eviction. This kind of activity is common in regions where rent control laws exist, but which do not allow the direct extension of rent-controlled prices from one tenancy to the subsequent tenancy, thus allowing landlords to set higher prices. Landlord harassment carries specific legal penalties in some jurisdictions, but enforcement can be very difficult or even impossible in many circumstances. However, when a crime is committed in the process and motives similar to those described above are subsequently proven in court, then those motives may be considered an aggravating factor in many jurisdictions, thus subjecting the offender(s) to a stiffer sentence.” ~ Wikipedia

 What can you do to fix the situation ? First, make sure its worth the effort and hassle for you to follow your complaints through the system process.

** There is always the chance the landlord retaliates when he is forced to comply.

  • use landlords complaints procedure if one in place
  • tell landlord in person to resolve if possible
  • write a complaint letter – keep a dated copy
  • complain to MP or local councilor
  • complain to the relevant city agency (by-law office, health or department of housing)
  • landlord & tenant board tribunal
 It can be an easy process for you or it can be a long fight so be prepared either way but someone needs to take the steps to change it because it will not just fix itself. Stand up for your rights.

Canadian PIPEDA Laws



Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act or PIPEDA for short

A Guide For Businesses & Organizations

Complying with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act

In Canada, we are protected by two federal privacy laws. The Privacy Act covers the personal information-handling practices of the federal government and the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) is Canada’s new private sector privacy law, which came fully into effect on January 1, 2004. The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada is here to help provide information and guidance to businesses across Canada as they gear up for the implementation of PIPEDA.

Good privacy is good business

IPIPEDAn an increasingly competitive marketplace, businesses rely on personal information to identify and stay in touch with their customers. They use it to seek out new customers who might be interested in their products. They want to find out what the market is looking for and what it will bear. And they want information about their employees, so that they can administer benefits and ensure a safe and productive workplace.

Obtaining and using that personal information in ways that don’t offend the fundamental human right of privacy is the challenge for modern businesses.

Respecting and protecting privacy is a key element of good customer relations — and that makes it a key element of competitive advantage. Your customers want privacy, your employees need it and your competitors are going to provide it.

It’s not an abstract legal concept. It’s simple consideration, respect and courtesy — the essence of a good relationship with your customers and employees. Showing respect for privacy is part of showing respect for your customer, and respecting your customer is the cornerstone of a strong customer relationship.


PIPEDA in brief

PIPEDA sets out ground rules for how private sector organizations can collect, use or disclose personal information in the course of commercial activities. It balances an individual’s right to privacy with the need of organizations to collect, use or disclose personal information for legitimate business purposes.

PIPEDA has been coming into effect in stages. As of January 2001, the Act has applied to personal information about customers or employees in the federally-regulated sector in the course of commercial activities. It also applies to information sold across provincial and territorial boundaries. As of January 2002, the Act has also applied to personal health information collected, used or disclosed by these organizations.

Since January 1, 2004, PIPEDA applies right across the board — to all personal information collected, used or disclosed in the course of commercial activities by all private sector organizations, except provinces which have, by then, enacted legislation that is deemed to be substantially similar to the federal law. To date, Quebec, British-Columbia, Alberta, and, in matters relating to health care, Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador, have promulgated legislation deemed substantially similar to the federal law.

Although the application of the Act expanded in 2004 to commercial activities that normally fall under provincial jurisdiction, it does not extend to employment in those activities. The only place PIPEDA applies to employment is in federal works, undertakings, or businesses. This means that if you are operating a federal work, undertaking or business — PIPEDA applies to your employment practices. But for the rest of businesses, it does not. It’s a good idea for businesses and organizations to review their privacy practices in employment anyway, because it’s very likely that provincial privacy laws will apply to employment.


The basic outline of PIPEDA looks like this:

  • If your business wants to collect, use or disclose personal information about people, you need their consent, except in a few specific and limited circumstances.
  • You can use or disclose people’s personal information only for the purpose for which they gave consent.
  • Even with consent, you have to limit collection, use and disclosure to purposes that a reasonable person would consider appropriate under the circumstances.
  • Individuals have a right to see the personal information that your business holds about them, and to correct any inaccuracies.
  • There’s oversight, through the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, to ensure that the law is respected, and redress if people’s rights are violated.

 Your responsibilities under PIPEDA

PIPEDA reflects the realities of the business world. It’s based on the Canadian Standards Association’s Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information, which is incorporated into the legislation. The Code came out of a collaborative effort by representatives of government, consumers and business groups, and lists 10 principles of fair information practices, which are summarized as follows:

  1. Accountability: Appoint an individual (or individuals) to be responsible for your organization’s compliance; protect all personal information held by your organization or transferred to third party for processing; and develop and implement personal information policies and practices.
  2. Identifying purposes: Your organization must identify the reasons for collecting personal information before or at the time of collection. Before or when any personal information is collected, identify why it is needed and how it will be used; document why the information is collected; inform the individual from whom the information is collected why it is needed; identify any new purpose for the information and obtain the individual’s consent before using it.
  3. Consent: Inform the individual in a meaningful way of the purposes for the collection, use or disclosure of personal data; obtain the individual’s consent before or at the time of collection, as well as when a new use is identified.
  4. Limiting collection: Do not collect personal information indiscriminately; do not deceive or mislead individuals about the reasons for collecting personal information.
  5. Limiting use, disclosure, and retention: Use or disclose personal information only for the purpose for which it was collected, unless the individual consents, or the use or disclosure is authorized by the Act; keep personal information only as long as necessary to satisfy the purposes; put guidelines and procedures in place for retaining and destroying personal information; keep personal information used to make a decision about a person for a reasonable time period. This should allow the person to obtain the information after the decision and pursue redress; destroy, erase or render anonymous information that is no longer required for an identified purpose or a legal requirement.
  6. Accuracy: Minimize the possibility of using incorrect information when making a decision about the individual or when disclosing information to third parties.
  7. Safeguards: Protect personal information against loss or theft; safeguard the information from unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification; protect personal information regardless of the format in which it is held.
  8. Openness: Inform your customers, clients and employees that you have policies and practices for the management of personal information; makethese policies and practices understandable and easily available.
  9. Individual access: When requested, inform individuals if you have any personal information about them; explain how it is or has been used and provide a list of any organizations to which it has been disclosed; give individuals access to their information; correct or amend any personal information if its accuracy and completeness is challenged and found to be deficient; provide a copy of the information requested, or reasons for not providing access, subject to exception set out in Section 9 of the Act; an organization should note any disagreement on the file and advise third parties where appropriate.
  10. Provide recourse: Develop simple and easily accessible complaint procedures; inform complainants of avenues or recourse. These include your organization’s own complaint procedures, those of industry associations, regulatory bodies and the Privacy Commissioner of Canada; investigate all complaints received; take appropriate measures to correct information handling practices and policies.

Individuals who feel their privacy rights have been infringed upon can complain to the Privacy Commissioner of Canada. The Commissioner’s role is that of an ombudsman, trying to find solutions to privacy problems, resolving complaints through negotiation and persuasion, and using mediation and conciliation if appropriate.

What is personal information?

Personal information includes any factual or subjective information, recorded or not, about an identifiable individual. This includes information in any form, such as:

  • age, name, ID numbers, income, ethnic origin, or blood type;
  • opinions, evaluations, comments, social status, or disciplinary actions; and
  • employee files, credit records, loan records, medical records, existence of a dispute between a consumer and a merchant, intentions (for example, to acquire goods or services, or change jobs).

Personal information does not include the name, title, business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization.

What is not covered by the Act?

  • The collection, use or disclosure of personal information by federal government organizations listed under the Privacy Act
  • Provincial or territorial governments and agents of the crown in right of a province
  • An employee’s name, title, business address or telephone number
  • An individual’s collection, use or disclosure of personal information strictly for personal purposes (e.g. personal greeting card list)
  • An organization’s collection, use or disclosure of personal information solely for journalistic, artistic or literary purposes
