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 civil 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“.
ALWAYS CHECK THE LEGAL STATUS AND COMPLAINTS FOR ANY LAWYER OR PARALEGAL YOU HIRE, OR HAS CONTACTED YOU FOR ANY MATTER !
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.

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.

Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal failed to notify the Human Rights Tribunal of the office closing as per the Rules of Procedure during the proceeding.The tenant had notified the HRTO of the fact when he had tried to serve legal documents to the address on file and discovered it was closed.After talking with other commercial business close to her closed office, the process server discovered it was closed in June 2014, one year after she opened in Meaford,Ontario.

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 !!

Privacy Violators wants to bring the rest of the story to you.
August 15th 2013 – Paul Richardson and his son Cody Richardson entered the 40 Ellen Street Barrie unit illegally and proceeded to change the locks on orders from Catherine Stewart and in front of 2 attending police officers and without any court papers or legal papers of any kind picked the bottom lock and cut the security chain to gain entry illegally.
Central Lock & Key of Barrie were called to 24 Victoria Street by Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal, and the owners of the units Dykstra Bros Electric for a legal Sheriffs order they had for the unit nut admitted on the stand at the civil hearing that none were provided to them when they illegally entered 40 Ellen Street August 15th 2013.
Paul Richardson and his son Cody Richardson of Central Lock & Key has worked for 4 -5 years on several occasions with Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal changing locks, according to the owner Paul Richardson, on the stand March 12th 2015.
Paul Richardson of Central Lock & Key has no fixed store address for this locksmith service and has no business license and no records with the City of Barrie to operate a business in Barrie. He runs a van as a mobile unit set up with equipment to change and make key & lock changes.It makes it hard to find and serve locksmiths set up like this as summons have to be given in person so we want to help other people that need to find this business for what ever their reasons are and this is probably the reason Catherine Stewart uses locksmiths like Paul Richardson Central Lock & Key for her eviction and lock removal processes.
In October 2013 Paul Richardson and his son Cody Richardson, along with Barrie police officer Melanie Beard, were summoned to the LTB hearing which Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal inc had claimed to be out of the country for and Stewart had also failed to notify the tenant or the LTB tribunal of her intentions although she had plenty of time she was notified before the trial and had the contact information for the tenant in the court files.
Cody Richardson, shown here to the left next to their Central Lock & Key mobile unit was being served for the March 12th civil hearing when he threatened the ex tenant and the Barrie police had to be called. Cody Richardson sped out the driveway barely avoiding a car blocking him in and ran, not waiting to talk to the officers about his threats !!
Although properly served, Cody Richardson of Central Lock & Key Barrie failed to show March 12th 2015 civil trial !
Paul Richardson, the owner of Central Lock & Key did show up at the civil trial and on the stand became a hostile witness when he had to admit he was directed to enter the unit illegally by Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal inc and asked the judge to listen to an audio recording he had taken.
Paul Richardson had saved an audio recording (18 months on his phone) from the September 2013 LTB hearing summons when the tenant had told him if he co operated he would not write badly about the deeds he had done illegally August 2013th on Catherine Stewart’s direction as the tenant knew they were manipulated as were the Barrie police. When asked on the stand when the audio was taken, Paul Richardson had lied, when he said he did not know when it was recorded, although it was evident from the recording it was from 18 months prior for the September 2013 LTB attempts to summon him for the LTB trial that Catherine Stewart and her clients failed to show or to notify the LTB Tribunal or the tenant involved.
Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal inc had filed two $25,000 civil cases in Barrie against the ex tenant, on ODSP and un garnishable, one for Ralph Dykstra, Bill Dykstra, Don Dykstra of Dykstra Bros Electric and the other from her paralegal firm personally. Stewart and her clients failed to show for the “Mandatory Settlement Conference” for the civil cases she filed against the tenant. These allegations were finally heard March 12th 2015 and the judge hearing the case “Reserved Judgement” and we will post the results and the orders whenever we finally receive them.
Read the Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal inc stories we have posted and the new updates to the civil and Human Rights allegations against Dykstra Bros Electric and her employee and boyfriend Paul Smith, a retired OPP officer and licensed private investigator that she has to do her private work.
Choose your locksmiths wisely and do a little research before you allow them into your home !!

It has come to Privacy Violators website attention, through numerous emails, that a yet unnamed Ontario Police Officer from Meaford has harassed several Canadian citizens instead of investigating known complaints of an ex OPP officer, Paul Smith practicing as a private investigator for several years, while un sanctioned to do so in Ontario.
Ex OPP officer Paul Smith has been known to operate as a process server, a witness and an illegal private investigator for owner and wife, Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal, Barrie, Ontario and is being protected by fellow OPP officers in Meaford, Ontario.
Paul Smith, along with his paralegal wife, Catherine Stewart have been known to work together in a fake property management firm in Meaford and Barrie, Ontario to evict tenants for their landlord only clients.
Paul Smith has been known to state in courts documents, that he has had a private investigator license for over 6 years but he was not sanctioned by any registered and legal company to operate in this capacity in Ontario Canada.
Smith has been known to give statements in landlord and Tenant board, Civil Court, Human Rights tribunal and to the Privacy commissioner of Canada, which were signed by his paralegal wife stating he was a private investigator working for his wife, Catherine Stewart’s paralegal firm landlordlegal inc. Stewart has been known to use her commissioner stamp to sign documents she submits from Paul Smith to further her landlord only clients cases she acquires through her phony property management company she runs to manipulate the LTB board when she represents land lords ONLY under the name April Stewart which is not the name on file at the Law Society of Upper Canada to practice law in Ontario.
Stewart’s landlord only fake property management company does NOT ALLOW tenants to contact her PM office for any reason, even emergencies. For tenant related emergencies she recommends the tenant email her office which is located in a small cubicle office at 117 Bayfield Street, Barrie, Ontario.Stewart is also known to openly harass and threaten a Human Rights applicant when he named Catherine Stewart and Paul Smith in Humamn Rights allegations (HRTO
Stewart is known to use the fake private investigator status of Paul Smith to enter tenants units and photograph their units illegally against the LTB Act 2006 and the Canadian Constitution which is suppose to guarantee privacy and harassment protection.
The yet unknown investigating Meaford OPP officer has been well aware of the alleged ex Ontario Provincial Police officer practicing as a illegal private investigator for some time but has neglected to investigate the ex officers false statements, false evidence submissions and illegal practice. The Meaford OPP have been well known for protecting ex police officers in the past and this seems to be a common practice for any law enforcement officers investigating Paul Smith and his paralegal wife, Catherine Stewart.
New complaints are pending and have been filed again against this Ontario paralegal, Catherine Stewart, with the LSUC for practicing law under several names that are not registered with the Law Society with numerous harassment claims, as well as procedural complaints with Stewart.
Stewart is also alleged to have submitted false statements and false evidence she signed and submitted that had come from Paul Smith, her husband while directly named in Civil Court and Human Rights allegations against the pair.
Ex OPP officer Paul Smith has been alleged to have entered false evidence for his wife Catherine Stewart several times to help her evict tenants for her clients.
We will update these Meaford OPP officers names in future posts concerning this ex OPP officer, Paul Smith and his paralegal wife who continue to work illegally harassing Ontario tenants and Human Rights applicants.
The Meaford Ontario Provincial Police officers, are well aware that paralegal Stewart is alleged to be known to be present during a break and enter allegation at 40 Ellen Street, Barrie Ontario, and that Stewart continually harasses and threatens tenants, and Human Rights applicants who file complaints, on her public website located here http://www.landlordlegal.ca.
Send us your emails concerning any known instances of the Meaford OPP protecting their own officers and failing to investigate them when it comes to ex police officers breaking the laws in Ontario.
Law Society paralegal Catherine Stewart is well known to sign her name as April Stewart in court and then refuses to honor agreements she makes.
Catherine Stewart is also known not to pay court orders against her for not showing in court and failing to notify the other parties involved against her.
Catherine Stewart is also alleged to have lied in LTB court in 2013 when she claimed to be out of the country when break and enter allegations were brought up against her in LTB hearings, the LSUC has yet to investigate the 10 to 15 complaints filed against Stewart with the Law Society.
This is a follow up post concerning the complaints that were filed with the Upper Law Society of Canada, against Diane Lynn Smith, of Smith Paralegal Services,Barrie, Ontario.
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.
You can read the previous post and complaints filed along with the original letter sent from Smith Paralegal Service : HERE
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.
This is a follow up post to the Upper law Society of Canada complaint that was filed earlier this year against Smith Paralegal Services of Barrie, Ontario.
Diane Lynn Smith is a paralegal from Barrie Ontario who is now being investigated by the Upper Law Society of Canada concerning complaints and allegations brought forward from a Barrie tenant.
It is alleged that Diane Smith had practiced law and represented, defended numerous clients this year but was under a suspension from the Upper Law Society of Canada at the time. If you had hired Smith Paralegal Services to represent you for any reason this year, the Upper Law Society would like to hear from you on all the matters Smith Paralegal Services had dealt with for you.
It is further alleged that Diane Smith harassed a tenant that was involved with an ongoing Landlord & Tenant Tribunal matter as well as pending Ontario Human Rights complaints & allegations involving Ralph Dykstra, Bill Dykstra, Don Dykstra, owners of Dykstra Bros Electric of Barrie, Ontario.
Smith has ignored information requests and has yet to contact the Upper law Society regarding the ULSC investigation against her. The matter is set to go to before an administrative hearing on Friday, December 13th, 2013. When the administration hearing rules on the matter on Friday, we will post the results here on Privacy Violators website and also will be published on the Upper Law Society website for the public to review the determination of the hearing. We will of course do a follow up to the findings and provide you with the link to review the results.
Further complaints and allegations stemming from an illegal lock change, harassment and PIPEDA violations were filed with the Upper Law Society of Upper Canada for investigation regarding another paralegal, April Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal from Meaford,Ontario who was at the time representing Dykstra Bros Electric.
Catherine Stewart is also being followed in our Court Cases in the News category concerning the Civil court complaint she has filed against Privacy Violators and the tenant she was harassing to get an eviction from the 40 Ellen Street property owned by Ralph Dyksta, Bill Dykstra and Don Dykstra of Dykstra Bros Electric of Barrie. Other articles you might be interested in reading up concerning these complaints is the Landlord Legal/Dykstra Bros Electric Mediate in Bad Faith post.
We will continue to post the rulings and determinations of all the allegations and complaints involved with these two paralegals and continue to follow the Dykstra Bros Electric cases as they go into to Civil matters and Ontario Human Rights Tribunal court.

Corrupt Barrie Police fail to investigate ex OPP officer Paul Smith for impersonating as Private Investigator and violating tenant Constitutional Rights to privacy !
When the public and especially tenants in general have issues with violations to their privacy, break and enters and the methods used by their landlords and illegal practices from paralegals such as Catherine Stewart of Walter’s Falls & Barrie Ontario, where do they go for protection ?
Normally ANY citizen of Canada or a tenant would call the police for help, file a complaint at the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) or possibly file their allegations with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (HRTO) or exercise all three possibilities according to their rights.
Many complaints of paralegal Catherine Stewart’s illegal practices, of break and enter, illegal searches, constant harassment of a HRTO applicant, entering false testimony, entering false evidence have all gone to the Barrie police to investigate from a tenant who had filed many complaints and allegations against Catherine Stewart and alleged retired and decorated ex OPP officer and boyfriend Paul Smith.
The corrupt Barrie police force has failed to act on many allegations filed against the ex cop and his girlfriend paralegal without a single officer investigating any of the complaints. There is no protection for the HRTO applicant or ANY investigation done by the corrupt Barrie police force when dealing with one of their own and this alleged ex OPP officer.
Complaints to the OPP Commissioner have gone un answered as to the alleged possible corruption when Paul Smith was supposedly an Ontario Provincial Police officer.
If Paul Smith willingly and knowing constantly violates the Landlord and Tenant Act, privacy rights and our Constitutional Rights as Canadians for his paralegal girlfriend, what illegal actions did he do when he was with the Ontario Provincial Police?
- Barrie police officers Melanie Beard and T Turner witnessed Catherine Stewart break into 40 Ellen Street, Barrie, Ontario
- Barrie police Detective Steeles ignored complaints of impersonating a PI, false evidence and false evidence submitted by Paul Smith to courts
- Barrie police Detective Steeles also harassed a Human rights applicant over false reports from paralegal Stewart and ex OPP boyfriend
- Barrie police did nothing to stop or investigate the B & E complaint the tenant tried to file
- Barrie police failed to investigate the paralegals gestapo style illegal property management tactics
- Barrie police failed to investigate paralegal Catherine Stewart violating tenant Constitutional Rights !!
- Barrie police failed to investigate the illegal practices of Paul Smith violating TENANT PRIVACY under the LTB Act !!
- Barrie police failed to investigate the illegal practices of Stewart as a paralegal violating TENANT PRIVACY RIGHTS !!
- Barrie police called the HRTO several times from a cell number that was ONLY ON FILE for HRTO matters against C A Stewart and Paul Smith
- Paralegal Stewart gave the Barrie Police the applicants confidential cell number that was to be used for HRTO court matters only
- The Barrie police & the OPP failed to investigate harassment allegations brought to them concerning Stewart and the ex OPP officer
- Barrie police and the OPP failed to investigate complaints of the false testimony entered from Stewart’s ex cop boyfriend numerous times
- Barrie police failed to investigate complaints of false evidence entered into civil matters and the HRTO allegations against the pair
- Barrie police failed to investigate or STOP THE CONSTANT HARASSMENT form C A Stewart and ex OPP officer Paul Smith
- Barrie police failed to investigate Paul Smith from personally contacting applicant, serving documents or harassing the HRTO applicant
Police chief Kimberly Greenwood, of the Barrie city police, Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Vince Hawkes, Human Rights Commissioner Renu Mandhane along with the Canadian Law Society have all failed to protect many rights given to Canadian citizens and continue to ignore and put under the rug, any legitimate complaints brought forth by Canadian citizens against this alleged ex Ontario provincial police officer !!
A quote is stated below from Detective Steeles when he threatened to put out a warrant on a Human Rights applicant over allegations the ex tenant was appearing at the open forum at the Barrie LTB board where Catherine Stewart was defending a landlord illegally according to the LTB Act 2006 ! Stewart complained to the Barrie police the ex tenant was attending the LTB hearings in Barrie which is his right to do so ANYTIME he wants to as it is a PUBLIC and OPEN hearing.The Barrie police had NO REASON to harass the ex tenant and Human Rights applicant for attending LTB hearings. Detective Steele also ignored the false evidence claims and the false testimony claims when the applicant tried to have Catherine Stewart and her ex cop boyfriend charged with the offenses.The FOI with Turner, Beards and Steeles police reports will be posted for the public to view.
Detective Steele did not do ANY INVESTIGATION into the allegations made concerning the harassment, false evidence and false statement claims brought up against Smith & Stewart but did threaten to have a warrant issued for the applicant for attending LTB hearing. WOW Barrie police justice is far between and completely corrupt !!
Barrie police Detective Steeles quote to a Human Rights applicant ;
It is a HICCUP of the law
The Freedom of Information act allowed the harassed citizen to retrieve copies of police reports filed by Beard, Turner and Steeles along with other Barrie police officers who allegedly harassed the human Rights applicant and his friends when trying to find false allegations to press charges against the applicant to further help the ex OPP officer and ignore the legitimate complaints filed with them concerning severe harassment and breaches of court conduct when in legal and court issues involving Catherine Stewart and Paul Smith personally.
We will be posting every Freedom Of Information report that has been obtained from every police force involved and every pertinent file from the Human Rights Tribunal to expose the truth about Catherine Stewart, Paul Smith, our legal system and the police protection that we are suppose to have as citizens in Canada.
Entering FALSE EVIDENCE and SUBMITTING FALSE TESTIMONY is a CRIMINAL offense as is BREAK & ENTER and HARASSMENT in Canada unless the Barrie police and the OPP protect the guilty parties involved and cover up the allegations concerning these people.The Barrie police DO NOT PROTECT THE PUBLIC but only cover up and ignore complaints that are filed with them and then contact the alleged parties to inform them of the complaints that were attempted to be filed so they can fix their problems.
Catherine Stewart and ex OPP officer Paul Smith committed illegal acts when they pretend to be a Private Investigator, enter false evidence and false testimony to protect their own asses of the Human Rights allegations that were filed against them for violating a tenants god given rights that are suppose to be protected by the Human Rights Commission.
Paul Smith is known to make false statements and Catherine Stewart his paralegal girlfriend puts her commissioner stamp on it to make the lies official and the way she needs it to evict defenseless tenants all the while NOT LEGAL to represent landlords in Landlord and Tenant board hearings as she does not fit the definition of a “landlord”. Stewart is known to use the phrase “Landlord Representative” in LTB and sign the illegal name APRIL STEWART instead of her given name and legal name stated with the LSUC which is CATHERINE STEWART !! BEWARE OF THE FRAUD TACTICS IN LTB. Stewart is also known NOT TO GIVE DISCLOSURE for LTB hearings, do not allow this injustice to continue with this scum who is a self proclaimed “terminator” . Tenants have rights that are constantly violated by this property manager who is a paralegal illegally acting on behalf of LANDLORDS ONLY in LTB matters. Bring this non disclosure and fraud tactics up to the LTB judge hearing your case and file your complaint with the LSUC and then contact us to follow your story publicly.
New complaints have been filed with the Law Society concerning Catherine Stewart tampering with Civil court documents and entering false evidence and false testimony into the Human Rights allegations she was accused of. Past complaints filed against Stewart were ignored when David Cass, intake worker for the LSUC dismissed complaints when Stewart lied about ongoing court cases when there was none presently before the courts at that time. Stewart had submitted no evidence to David Cass when he dismissed the complaints blindly.
We have received several emails about complaints to the LSUC filed against paralegals and lawyers mentioned in several of our public interest stories, and David Cass has been at the center of a couple of the complaints and dismissed them as well without proof or justifications for his actions. The complaints that we know for sure that have been filed have not showed on the paralegals public record at all after David Cass puts them under the rug and fails to protect the public.
The LSUC is more concerned that paralegals pay their yearly fees to them than they are in protecting the public from paralegals who openly and knowingly break the law and the Rules of Conduct set out by the LSUC. We will be writing further about the complaints filed and the LSUC Rules and Regulations that are suppose to be in place so the public can see the real truth about our legal system. The truth will scare you more than you think if you think we live in a FREE Canada.
David Cass is protecting Lawyers and Paralegals from complaints that are legitimately filed against paralegals and Lawyers without justifying his reasons or the persons providing proof of their claims they make to protect themselves. The Law Society itself is a self run body that only protects lawyers and paralegals from the complaints that are shoved aside without proof or justification and never heard.
Privacy Violators has evidence of at least 4 other complaints filed with the LSUC against Stewart but there is no records of ANY complaints being filed including Break & Enter complaints filed in 2013 from a Barrie tenant. The Law Society intake process is as crooked as the cops when they do not protect the public from the Hard Practices of paralegals who knowingly break the laws for their clients. This leaves only one option for tenants when coming across these low life paralegals and that is to defend yourself to the max because the system is rigged against you.
We will be publishing options you can choose to use when dealing with Catherine Stewart who knowingly breaks the law in front of the Barrie police and got away with it until the new complaints are heard and the results published here on Privacy Violators website for the public to learn of the corrupt system. We actually live in a communist Canada when a one year graduate becomes a paralegal and can knowingly break laws and get away with it.
Your privacy and your live is exposed when dealing with SCUM (in our opinion) like Catherine Stewart and Paul Smith !!
Read the new series we have for you entitled “THE STEWART SOLUTION”
The Barrie police are as corrupt as they come and do not have any interest in investigating an ex Ontario Police officer which has never been confirmed. This ex OPP officer claimed to be a decorated officer but no records were ever found that he was ever in the OPP or a decorated officer and the statements they put into court were never backed with any documentation to prove there claims about Paul Smith.
Tenants rights, Human Rights applicants, Landlord & Tenant Board applicants and many Canadian citizens who have filed complaints against this paralegal and her ex cop boyfriend, who to this day still operate the illegal property management firm, with the protection of the police and with only one purpose and intention, TO EVICT THE TENANT FOR THEIR LANDLORD CLIENTS !!
THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE !!
The truth is paralegals like Catherine Stewart, who act as a paralegal for Landlords only, and operate illegal property manager businesses with her ex OPP boyfriend Paul Smith, have NO RIGHTS to privacy and lose all their rights when it comes to the corrupt court system in Ontario, Canada.Stewart constantly uses her boyfriends ex OPP status when dealing with the police making them reluctant to investigate one of their own and ignoring citizens rights.
Ex OPP officer, Paul Smith has been alleged to have been impersonating a Private Investigator status for over 5 years illegally, and still has not been investigated for making claims and entering statements and evidence as such when he was not legal to be acting as a private investigator for his paralegal girlfriend operating a scam to commit fraud in the LTB matters she represents landlords at illegally under the LTB ACT 2006 !!. Another matter ignored by the Barrie city police and the OPP commissioner.
Paralegal Catherine Stewart operates this property management company, Landlord Legal, out of a small cubicle style office located in Barrie, Ontario from 117 Bayfield Street. Stewart has been known to move her property management office frequently as she does NOT ALLOW TENANTS to enter her property management office under any circumstance.
Normal and legitimate property management companies would have the obligation to address tenant issues and other matters that would come up from the tenants of the landlords they represent.Stewart does not allow tenant contact, even for emergencies, she has always acted as a fraudulent property manager and abusing her paralegal status to harass tenants rights and privacy with intentions to evict them.Stewart lies on her website when she claims she sold her property management company which she operates from Barrie Ontario.
Privacy Violators has filed information with the Canada Revenue Services claiming Catherine Stewart has not paid taxes for her illegal property management company since 2006, which she rolled into one company, her paralegal services. Tax fraud is also another allegation brought up to the Canada Revenue Services concerning Landlord Legal !!
Quoted from Catherine Stewart’s illegal property management company website
Landlord Legal was officially launched in Barrie, Ontario, in 2006 by our founder C. April Stewart, who discovered through her property management company, Barrie Rentals Inc., that no one seemed to be advocating in a meaningful way for landlords. She was troubled by the treatment landlords received from tenants, the legislators, and the Board, and set out to level the playing field. She sold her management business and began her quest for landlord justice, which continues to date. Stewart’s passion for landlord’s rights has led to industry awards, national media coverage, and speaking engagements to hundreds of landlords throughout Ontario. Our firm represents landlords only!Our ServicesWe provide advocacy and representation to residential landlords only, anywhere in Ontario. We specialize in evicting problem tenants, and defending landlords against tenant initiated litigation. We represent landlords at the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB). We also provide educational seminars to landlords, real estate agents, investors and investment clubs, that are as entertaining as they are informative! Imagine the stories we can tell around here!

Does any of the few points already mentioned sound like Catherine Stewart operates a legitimate property management firm. How and why does the Law Society allow a one year technical school graduate for paralegal, to get away with breaking protected any Canadian citizen’s Constitutional Rights for privacy and the many rules of the Landlord and Tenant Act Stewart violates since 2006.
Licensed paralegal Catherine Stewart is a disgrace to the Law Society and operates this illegal property management company from Barrie Ontario, although it it is a clear VIOLATION of the UPPER LAW SOCIETY OF CANADA (ULSC) Rules and Regulations conflict of interest laws she knowingly ignores.
Licensed paralegal Catherine Stewart has been operating this illegal property management business and representing LANDLORDS ONLY in Landlord and Tenant Board hearings although this is another breach of the ULSC rules and has the single intention of evicting the tenant fore her landlord only clients. Stewart uses her property management website to solicit the work for the landlords and uses her authority as a paralegal to bully, harass and violate tenant rights given to them for protection.
You must read the new series we compiled with things you can do when confronted by such illegal methods and you feel you can do nothing to stop the scum present in our court systems today. We have named the NEW SERIES after this paralegal, THE STEWART SOLUTION, who to this day is still completely photographing tenant units against the LTB Act, harassing helpless tenants and using powers given to her from the Law Society to evict the helpless tenants.
We want to give tenants more ideas and options when dealing with illegal methods used by their tenants, paralegals or the corrupt police forces out there. Read some of the points and tips we offer and give some feedback if we missed any options for helpless tenants to defend themselves against illegal property managers or crooked paralegals who knowingly break the law for their landlord clients.
We are still searching for photos of this ex OPP officer Paul Smith who operates as an illegal Private Investigator for Catherine Stewart, both from the little town of Walters Falls, Ontario, just outside of Meaford, Ontario.
WHO IS PROTECTING YOUR RIGHTS TO PRIVACY AND FREEDOM IN CANADA ?
Catherine April Stewart, a resident of Walter’s falls Ontario is a phoney self proclaimed advocator of Landlord ONLY rights and is known to practice law under several names and businesses.Stewart is also known to call herself the “terminator” when she attacks tenants in the LTB Hearings.
Stewart owns and operates a phoney property management company from 117 Bayfield Street, Barrie, Ontario under the name Landlord legal.
The phoney property management company Catherine Stewart runs is from a small cubicle office surrounded by numerous accountants in a firm there, and the building is owned by Wendy Kara of Sophia development Corporation.
These accountants have been known to receive confidential and private legal documents that were intended for her legal firms eyes only but has on numerous occasions received unprotected legal documents on her behalf when she operates her legal firm from her Walters Falls residence.
Stewart had closed her failing Meaford legal office last year after she neglected to inform the Civil courts and the Human Rights of the closure of her office that was on record to receive the legal files from Human Rights allegations brought up against Stewart, her husband Paul Smith and her landlord clients Dykstra Bros Electric.
YOU CAN’T TRUST A DYKSTRA !!
This phoney self proclaimed advocator for landlord only rights has had many complaints filed with the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) for her sharp practice methods of advocating including practicing law under several names.
The Law Society has so far protected the illegal actions of Stewart and has neglected to register ANY of the many complaints that have been filed with their office over many breaches of their own rules and rules of conduct with the courts Stewart has been accused and involved with directly.
Catherine April Stewart is the legal name registered at the LSUC for Stewart to practice law under, and the name of the business registered at the LSUC for her shady legal firm is Landlord legal inc.
Catherine Stewart has been practicing law at the LTB Board in Barrie, Meaford and numerous other cities across Ontario and using the name April Stewart under landlord legal, when she represents her landlord only clients.
Stewart has been known to make many deals under this name and is now very well known not to honor any agreements she makes with tenants only to have them take the matter into civil courts wasting their money and valuable court time for her purposes.
Stewart has also been known to harass Human Rights applicants when she complained to the Barrie police the tenant was showing up at the LTB hearings which is an open forum to anybody thatwishes to go. The police or this lowlife paralegal do not have the right to harass the tenants that wish to go to ANY LTB hearing for ANY REASON !
The corrupt Barrie police have harassed many tenants fore this ex OPP officer and his paralegal girlfriend but would not charge her for Break & enter, entering false statements, entering false documents or for harassing a human Rights applicant several times. Please read the many posts concerning this phoney Landlord Rights advocate.
Stewart has also been known to break into tenants units while being present at the crime with the Barrie police witnessing the act and telling her she did not have the legal right to enter the unit to begin with.
Another disgraced paralegal Diane Smith, has also been known for practicing law under different names and businesses and is also well known to have worked for Catherine Stewart on numerous past hearings.
Between the conflict of interests businesses Stewart owns and runs with her husband, ex OPP officer Paul Smith there has been numerous complaints to the LSUC over her legal practice and her submitting false testimony, statements and evidence from Paul Smith. Stewart has been known to use her Commissioner stamp to sign and authorize documents she submits from her husband when they pertain to her landlord only clients and Ontario LTB hearings.
Under the LTB Act 2006 Stewart does NOT FIT the definition of a landlord and should not be practicing law representing her slum lord clients.Paul Smith has also been known to work illegally as a Private Investigator for this paralegal when he was not licensed to do so in Ontario. Many statements Paul Smith gave to the Privacy Commissioner, Civil Courts, LTB hearings and the Human Rights allegations has statements coming from him as a private investigator working for Stewart.
Stewart has been known to break many rules of the Law Society and Rules and regulations for paralegals and many Rules of Conduct courts and has gone as far as entering false evidence into the Human Rights allegations brought up against Catherine April Stewart, her husband Paul Smith, William Dykstra, Ralph Dykstra and Donald Dykstra of Dykstra Bros Electric of Barrie Ontario.
Stewart is also known for not paying court orders that have been given to her to pay when she failed to show or notify the courts on several occasions.
Stewart had another paralegal lied at the LTB hearing she was accused of breaking & entering into a tenants unit while witnesses and the Barrie police watched. Paul Smith admitted to cowering behind a car when the tenant tried serving him legal documents to appear in LTB court for photographing his unit against the LTB Act 2006.Another crooked ex OPP cop that abuses the system for his paralegal girlfriend.
New complaints have been filed again against Catherine Stewart with the Law Society of Upper Canada who has been known to protect lawyers and paralegals when they break the law or even the rules set out by the society to govern the conduct of these one year graduates who receive a law degree from shady colleges in Ontario.
Privacy Violators will have the actual complaints posted live with all the responses from the governing body for lawyers and paralegals and will post all the comments and results from the many, many complaints.
Privacy Violators has received many emails and evidence that many other complaints have previously been filed against Catherine Stewart with the LSUC but there are no records of any of the complaints filed against her.
The writer had filed Break and Enter complaints against Stewart that were dismissed when David Cass, LSUC intake officer dismissed without reason or evidence in September 2013. David Cass is accused of protecting paralegals even though they violate the rules set out governing the conduct of paralegals and lawyers by the LSUC.
Catherine Stewart is another disgrace to the LSUC when she practices law under numerous names and knowingly and willingly signs and submits false statements and false evidence, in her own Human Rights allegations filed in 2014. Entering false evidence is a criminal offense as is break and enter. No paralegal is allowed to be present during an illegal act for any reason let alone be a party to it.
Read the many posts of the illegal activity done by this paralegal who practices under different names and businesses in and around Barrie, Ontario.
Complaints to the fraud department of the Canada Revenue Agency have been launched against alleged ex OPP officer Paul Smith and Catherine Stewart.
