Upper Law Society of Canada refused to investigate legitimate tenant complaints


Catherine-StewartPrivacy-Violators blog has learned that complaints that had been previously filed with the Law Society of Upper Canada, against the owner of Landlord Legal inc, Catherine April Stewart, a P1 private paralegal, operating from offices in Meaford & Barrie Ontario, had continued to be ignored and not investigated though strenuously argued, with many documents submitted to support the complaints.

This is not the first time complaints against Catherine Stewart have been filed with the Upper Law Society of Canada by this ex tenant and they have not been investigated or documented at all. Nowhere can you find out information on HOW MANY TIMES they have investigated or have neglected to investigate legitimate complaints that have been filed against ANY lawyer or paralegal on their website.

** Previous complaint against Diane Smith, of Smith paralegal Services were investigated with the ULSC hearing finding Smith guilty.

When complaints were filed by a Barrie ex tenant last year, against Landlord Legal, Catherine Stewart, the owner had contacted the Law Society intake officer handling the complaint, David Cass, several times on the filed complaints, saying the matter is still in Landlord & Tenant tribunal or had been taken up with the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and had already been dealt with.

ULSC intake officer David Cass dismissed the complaints the tenant had filed without investigating the facts. Another complaint was re filed and asked to be further investigated.

Though Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal had contacted David Cass several times, the Law Society’s intake officer NEVER contacted the ex tenant on the matter except to send a letter dismissing the complaints.

Read ALL the letters and emails received from the Law Society of Canada’s intake officer David Cass to the ex tenant and the tenants responses back to the Law Society on the complaints he had filed against this paralegal last year. Several other tenants have contacted the Privacy-Violators.com website to share similar complaints they have filed with the Law Society against this same paralegal but also not investigated.

The NEWEST COMPLAINTS that have been filed come from an August 15th 2013 incident where Landlord Legal or an agent acting on her behalf, allegedly had called the Barrie Police on a false report to “keep the peace” at 40 Ellen Street, Barrie, Ontario. Read the attending Barrie Police Officers notes obtained from a Freedom of Information request from the ex tenant on the incident report.

The tenant claims Landlord Legal,Catherine Stewart had also called Central Key and Lock from Barrie Ontario, a mobile Cody Robertson-central lock and keylocksmith to enter the unit at 40 Ellen Street, Barrie, Ontario and change the locks without any 24 hour intent to enter, eviction notice, sheriffs order or any other legal right to do so.

** Hence the reason complaints were filed with the Law Society of Upper Canada against Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal inc.

The rental property at 40 Ellen Street, is owned by Ralph Dykstra, Bill Dykstra and Don Dykstra, operating as Dykstra Bros Electric, to whom Stewart had been representing since May 13th 2013 and throughout all the Landlord & Tenant Board Tribunal hearings and the recent Small Claims proceedings Stewart SCC#1851-13 and Dykstras SCC#1852-13 have filed.

April Stewart attempted to withdraw her own civil case and Dykstras civil cases during Motions brought forth May 27th 2014 by the Barrie tenant to file a counter suit. A counter suit for $25,000 is being filed against April Stewart and her clients Dykstra Bros Electric.

The Settlement Conference is to be heard July 11th 2014 on the matter.

Their is no chance for a settlement on these issues and a hearing date will be asked for a judge to hear the matter.

We will continue to keep the updates coming as time prevails. There has been many details to add to our posts to bring everything up to date.

We have asked the complaints with the ULSC to go forward with new documentation being sent to further the investigations requested. Comments from the director about the requests will be published here. we look forward to following the ULSC and the hearings, which we will be present.

Law Society of Upper Canada fails to investigate complaints against Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal inc.

Law Society of Upper Canada



In this websites opinion

The Upper Law Society of Canada is suppose to be a place where the public goes for protection and takes complaints against lawyers and paralegals to be investigated when rights have been violated or wrong doing has taken place. In our opinion .. What a JOKE !!

The following NEW series of posts will follow ALL the complaints that were filed by a Canadian citizen and tenant in regards to several serious paralegal complaints  filed  in 2013-2014 with the   Upper Law Society of Canada.

The complaints followed in this NEW series of posts were filed in 2013 & 2014 against Landlord Legal inc, Catherine April Stewart, Smith Paralegal Catherine-StewartServices, Diane Smith and the new 2014 complaints being filed with Legal Aid and the Upper Law Society of Canada.

Stewart had claimed there was ongoing court issues and the ULSC delayed the investigation. The two (2) civil claims Catherine Stewart had filed against the ex tenant had no bearing on the reasons for the complaint.

Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal inc had filed her civil court claims on behalf of herself and her clients she represented in the WRONG COURT to have our  PRIVACY-VIOLATORS BLOG SHUT DOWN and ALL the postings removed of the LTB tribunal hearings published and followed here on our Privacy-Violators Blog in addition to $5000 in alleged property damage to her clients, Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra, Don Dykstra of Dyksytra Bros Electric.

Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal and her clients knew she had called the Barrie police on false pretenses and instructed Central Lock & Key to illegally break into the unit at 40 Ellen Street, Barrie, Ontario after cutting the security chain, gaining entry and removing the locks while the Barrie police stood by and watched the tenants rights being violated and doing nothing to stop the actions or help the harassd tenant from the illegal entry although they also knew Catherine Stewart and her clients had no legal documentation allowing them to enter to support her actions .

“I have 13 years experience and know my job” ~ Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal inc tells Barrie police officers M Beard and Turner


Upper Law Society complaint has been re filed against Catherine Stewart for her presence and involvement in the harassment and illegal entry, lock removal incident at 40 Ellen Street, Barrie, Ontario.

* Minimum of $25,000 fine and 1 year suspension if Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal found guilty of the complaint against her

* If found guilty of the Human Rights claim HRTO #17699-I filed by the ex tenant against C A Stewart of Landlord legal inc and her employee Paul Smith, Stewart will lose her paralegal license and no longer able to practice law.

Further legal actions against the Queen, Attorney General, the Barrie police and Central lock & Key of Barrie are still pending and will ALL be followed here on Privacy-Violators Blog as they are filed and heard in court.

New complaints being filed against Catherine April Stewart and Howard Tavroges, for “Conflict of interest” and client confidentiality issues raised when he negotiated an agreement July 15th in LTB tribunal with Dawn Lewis, tenant and Stewart of landlord Legal and the tenant had to sue Catherine Stewart and her clients to retrieve the money owed from the agreement in Landlord & Tenant Board hearing in Barrie.

Catherine Stewart further sent threatening letter to Michael Hefferon, of Upper Law Society of Canada actions against the Community Legal clinic for representing the tenant after C A Stewart of Landlord Legal alleged he was connected to website activities known only to Howard Tavroges mentioned in confidential client interviews.

The tenant had filed a civil case #1546-13 against Dykstra Bros Electric to retrieve the funds owed from mediation that was arranged by Howard Tavroges and Stewart and Tavroges was doing Landlord and Tenant Board work for Catherine Stewart at the same time as the tenant is in civil court with Catherine April Stewart and Dykstra Bros Electric for the July 15th 2013 Sean Henry Order.

 ALL the original complaints that have been filed with the Law Society of Upper Canada, will be posted in this series, along with the actual responses that were received from the Law Society of Upper Canada’s, “INTAKE COUNCIL OFFICERS”, David Cass, Yvonne Skilton and the recent responses received from the Director of the Professional Regulation Division on the “handling” of the complaints that were filed and “investigated” against Catherine April Stewart, from one of its intake officers’, David Cass

Paralegals and Lawyers should not or should know NOT TO THREATEN parties they are involved in proceedings against with CRIMINAL ARREST, FURTHER LEGAL THREATS or any kind of threat meant to harm the other party or to delay, coerce or influence the proceedings they are involved in.

Landlord Legal has openly threatened an ex tenant with criminal charges on her Landlord legal website while Human Rights/Civil allegations pending ( http://landlordlegal.ca DEC 2015 to Jan 22nd 2016) of her paralegal firm, alleged boyfriend and Dykstra Bros electric owners allegedly have been defending alleged discrimination against the Human Rights of the tenant.lANDLORD-LEGAL-website-page

Images showing the serious threats to the ex tenant, Tenant Rights Applicant and the Human Rights Applicant made from the owner, Catherine April Stewart,for Landlord Legal inc publicly advertised paralegal services website threatening CRIMINAL CHARGES after numerous unsubstantiated and FALSE ALLEGATIONS made to the Barrie Police..

Paralegals and Lawyers should know or aught to know not to create “CONFLICT of INTEREST” and if so, to remove themselves from ALL legal proceedings they are directly involved in.

Paralegals and Lawyers should know or aught to know they are to advise clients and not act illegally for the clients they represent.

Paralegals and Lawyers should know or aught to know they are not allowed to be present at or participate in illegal acts like break ins or illegal lock changes.

Have a complaint to file against a lawyer or paralegal ?  GOOD LUCK !!

We will update as the new complaints against Catherine Stewart and Howard Tavroges are filed and report on the progress

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.

Walter’s Falls paralegal and husband file lies and false evidence in HRTO allegations..claims absolute privilege

Catherine Stewart, a Walter’s Falls Ontario paralegal and her husband, Paul Smith, who had Human Rights allegations (HRTO#17699-14) filed against them for violating tenants rights in 2014 used the system to file false testimony and false evidence to circumvent the allegations.

Walter's falls Ontario, home of Catherine stewart and Paul Smith

April Stewart, self proclaimed Landlord rights advocate and Human Rights violator
47-year-old April Stewart is known as the privacy violator

Catherine April Stewart, a licensed paralegal registered with the Law Society of Ontario, claims to be an eviction specialist and a landlord only advocate, but also runs a small property management company from a small cubicle office located at 117 Bayfield Street in Barrie Ontario.

As a property management company, Catherine Stewart refuses to allow any of the tenants she manages for her landlord only clients to enter her offices or to contact her over ANY tenant issues. A very strange rule for a legitimate property manager running a business representing clients to their tenants.

Catherine Stewart was present at a break and enter, ordered and committed by the paralegal, when she ordered a Barrie locksmith to enter a tenant’s residence without the legal right to do so which was witnessed by Barrie police officer’s Melanie Beard and officer Turner, who both refused to press charges against her when the tenant insisted they do so.

Read the police report from the officers and the many articles of violations that this paralegal commits, all in her self proclaimed status of being the “terminator”.

Being present and ordering the break and enter is another violation of the Law Society but the complaint that was filed in 2013 does not even appear anywhere on her profile to warn the public. David Cass headed that complaint off and refused to hear it even though the police reports were submitted to the law society to prove the claims.

Catherine Stewart is also known to use and sign the name April Stewart in the LTB hearings, which is not registered with the Law Society to practice law and then fails to honor any agreement she makes to make the tenant waste time and money going after the order she had agreed to and signed in the Landlord and tenant board.

Paralegals, according to the Law Society rules, are suppose to honor agreements they make in court which shows you what kind of paralegal Stewart really is when she states in LTB hearings, she is “a landlord representative” NOT LEGAL REPRESENTATIVE, as she does not fit the legal definition of a landlord in LTB and then signs a different name not registered with the law society and continuously fails to honor the agreements she makes.

The tenant filed complaints in the LTB courts for the break and enter after he vacated the unit but Catherine Stewart lied to the courts on the hearing day when Stewart sent another paralegal friend claiming to “Be out of the country September 21st 2013”. Witnesses can put Stewart in Meaford, Ontario when she was suppose to be in court to answer for the break and enter allegations.

Catherine Stewart’s husband, Paul Smith has been known to work for Stewart for over 10 years as a process server and other jobs his wife needed done for her property management company named landlord legal, including signing false documents for her to win cases for her landlord clients.

Paul Smith, an alleged retired OPP that has never been proven has been known to act, not only in the capacity of a process server for his paralegal wife, but has been known to enter tenants units every time they plan to evict a tenant for her landlord only clients and completely  photograph the tenants units before the eviction process begins in the LTB courts.

This photographing that Paul Smith does not only violates the Landlord and Tenant board rules but also violates the constitutional rights to privacy that is suppose to protect the tenants and their families.

Paralegal Catherine Stewart’s husband, Paul Smith has been known on several occasions to file false testimony and enter false evidence that is often signed by his paralegal wife or one of her friends in order to manipulate the courts.

When Catherine April Stewart of landlord legal enters this false testimony and false evidence, she is committing a crime, but gets away with it every time when she claims she has “ABSOLUTE PRIVILEGE” as a paralegal to do so.

Paul Smith business card from Landlord Legal, Barrie.




Paul Smith has been known to illegally contact the Human Rights applicant during the time Smith and Stewart had been named in the Human Rights allegations and was presently before the Human Rights Tribunal in Toronto.

Although Paul Smith was directly named in the claim, he contacted the applicant directly which is against the law to harass a HRTO applicant and had made the applicant very concerned for his safety during the ongoing HRTO hearings.

Smith has also been known on numerous occasions to use statements, issued and signed as a private investigator when Paul Smith was not legally licensed to perform as such in Ontario. This alleged ex OPP officer has never had to prove he was a OPP officer or his legal private investigator status that he uses for his paralegal wife’s advantage in the Ontario courts.

Paul Smith even appeared on the stand as a witness in a civil case when he was not involved or even on the witness list that was given to the opposing party before the trial, as ordered by the judge hearing the case.

This pair has continued to get away with their manipulative tactics because Stewart is a paralegal and claims absolute privilege when defending a landlord client or in this case, Stewart and Smith when they were directly named in the Human Rights allegations.

There is definitely something wrong with our court system when a one year graduate gets a paralegal license and can lie, submit false evidence and continue to mock and manipulate the LTB boards and the the Ontario courts, all the while claiming to be a landlord rights advocate.

Law Society of Upper Canada

Many complaints have been filed with the Law Society over paralegal Catherine Stewart’s conduct, false testimony and her entering false evidence into courts, which is illegal in our court system, but if you look at her profile in the Law Society it will not even show one complaint. The Law Society uses its employees like David Cass, to head off any complaints that do come before them.

The Human Rights mediator hearing the allegations against Stewart and her husband for HRTO 16799-14, Mary Truemner stated in the courtroom that Stewart had definitely crossed the line and violated the tenants rights but had upset the applicant with some very ignorant comments in mediation and a very ridiculous proposal for a punishment that it made the applicant walk out of the hearing in disgust.

The Human Rights mediator hearing the case, Mary Truemner had stated Catherine Stewart was guilty and was suggesting that Stewart take an online Human Rights course and put up a Human Rights poster in her office as a remedy for her violations.

This very ridiculous remedy and other aspects of the Human Rights process will be discussed in full for the public to see that the registrar Richard Hennessy and the entire HRTO process in Ontario is a joke.

The HRTO mediator, Mary Truemner refused to hear the false evidence and false statement claims brought up by the applicant although the proper paperwork was submitted to the tribunal. The evidence and witnesses were concrete and could without a doubt prove that Catherine Stewart and her husband Paul Smith submitted the false statements and evidence into the hearings to protect their reputations.

The entire HRTO hearing will be discussed and many of the documents put online to show the public what one year graduates for a paralegal license like Catherine Stewart, will do in our Ontario courts and how they get away with it.

Many documents, statements, evidence submitted and emails received from the Human Rights tribunal of Ontario and the Law Society will be also be posted online to show what the Law Society does to protect paralegals and lawyers when legitimate complaints are filed with their office.

New complaints against Stewart have been filed with the Law Society and we will post all communication, documents and emails received concerning the complaints to further educate the public on how they protect dirty paralegals as long as they pay their fees to the society. You have to ask yourself why so many complaints that can be proven to be filed with them never get heard and never appear on their public profile that is accessible to the public. All we can say is PUBLIC BE AWARE OF THE DECEIT and the COVER UP PRACTICES OF THE LAW SOCIETY !!

We hope that by exposing paralegals like Catherine Stewart, on our website that it will help you understand what a joke our legal system is when you have a one year graduate of a technical college that can manipulate the courts, harass tenants endlessly and proclaim to be an eviction specialist who is a landlord rights advocate.

This paralegal has also been known to threaten the Human Rights applicant openly on her public website she uses to solicit business for her fake property management company while working as a paralegal. Check her website out here and notice her application process to screen applicants is by email only, http://landlorlegal.ca

Please follow the upcoming Human Rights articles soon to be released to learn the truth about our court system in Ontario.It really is a friggin joke.

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.

Barrie policeThe 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?

  1. Barrie police officers Melanie Beard and T Turner witnessed Catherine Stewart break into 40 Ellen Street, Barrie, Ontario
  2. Barrie police Detective Steeles ignored complaints of impersonating a PI, false evidence and false evidence submitted by Paul Smith to courts
  3. Barrie police Detective Steeles also harassed a Human rights applicant over false reports from paralegal Stewart and ex OPP boyfriend
  4. Barrie police did nothing to stop or investigate the B & E complaint the tenant tried to file
  5. Barrie police failed to investigate the paralegals gestapo style illegal property management tactics
  6. Barrie police failed to investigate paralegal Catherine Stewart violating tenant Constitutional Rights !!
  7. Barrie police failed to investigate the illegal practices of Paul Smith violating TENANT PRIVACY under the LTB Act !!
  8. Barrie police failed to investigate the illegal practices of Stewart as a paralegal violating TENANT PRIVACY RIGHTS !!
  9. 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
  10. Paralegal Stewart gave the Barrie Police the applicants confidential cell number that was to be used for HRTO court matters only
  11. The Barrie police & the OPP failed to investigate harassment allegations brought to them concerning Stewart and the ex OPP officer
  12. Barrie police and the OPP failed to investigate complaints of the false testimony entered from Stewart’s ex cop boyfriend numerous times
  13. Barrie police failed to investigate complaints of false evidence entered into civil matters and the HRTO allegations against the pair
  14. Barrie police failed to investigate or STOP THE CONSTANT HARASSMENT form C A Stewart and ex OPP officer Paul Smith
  15. 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 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.

oppEx 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 iled 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

About Us

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 Services
 We 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).

  21. Violates the Landlord and Tenant Act when representing landlords as she does not fit the definition of as such in LTB court

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.

Law Society of Upper Canada

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.


Walter’s Falls paralegal practices law under several names !

April Stewart, self proclaimed Landlord rights advocate and Human Rights violator
47-year-old April Stewart is known as the privacy violator

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.

Landlord Legal small office between the buildings.
Landlord Legal small office between the buildings.

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.

Coward Barrie slumlord – Ralph Dykstra
Coward Barrie slumlord – Donald Dykstra
Dykstra Bros electric retired owner William dykstra
William Dykstra (a known liar in civil court)


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.

Agreement signed April Stewart by LSUC paralegal Catherine Stewart
Agreement signed April Stewart by LSUC paralegal Catherine Stewart

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.

Dykstra House had illegal marihuana gro operation

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.Barrie police

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.

The Stewart Solution – A Tenants guide to harassment

The Stewart Solution ~ A Tenants Guide to harassment and what you can do to retaliate


Catherine-Stewart-pic1When Catherine Stewart or April Stewart or whatever name she is using now arrives in your life for the first time to start eviction proceedings, you have some options that you can consider to retaliate against her Sharp Practice tactics and her landlord clients.
These are true facts Stewart does not want you to know before she attempts to evict you.

We only list some retaliation possibilities that you can consider doing and leave the decisions and actions up to you. We take no responsibility for any actions that may have been taken per our suggestions listed below. We will be adding more suggestions listed below as members voice their opinions and emails continue to come in. Tenants have rights to !

The goal here is to cost the landlord as much money as possible with damages and legal fees if they try to come after you for any costs involved with the eviction, you are protected by the Landlord & Tenant Act and ODSP Act section 18 and section 51(1) of the ODSP Regulations.

Intent of Policy :To ensure that a recipient’s income support is protected from seizure and garnishment by creditors or transfer to another party to satisfy a debt.

As with Stewart being protected for her illegal methods, you are also protected if you are on ODSP or Public Assistance and can not be garnished for any reason.The landlord will have to come up with the money to fix the place and all legal fees required to attempt to pursue any LTB or Civil Court actions to get the damages recovered, and you simply don’t show up as Civil Courts in Ontario are Mickey Mouse and a Kangaroo court anyways.They will not be able to recover any money even if the court awards damage and cost against you. Their tough luck !

Let the landlord waste their time with the paperwork and the extreme costs involved to try and recover any of the alleged damages to their property. Have no mercy when you are being harassed and feel threatened by this invasion of a paralegal hiding behind her illegal property management company, she will have no mercy on you.

Read the many posts concerning Stewart’s Sharp practice and the intentional privacy violations she has been known to do to tenants she evicts.

When Stewart attempts to photograph your entire unit before your eviction, it is against the LTB Act 2006.Stewart is well known to try and get photos and serial numbers of appliances before she attempts to evict a tenant. Privacy Violators has received several emails complaining that Paul Smith is still entering their unit for Stewart with intentions of photographing every square inch. Make sure your witnesses show and the photos are disclosed in LTB court that she takes.

Landlords can take photos if they pertain to scheduled maintenance and should be noted in the Intent to Enter she will send to you. It is against the LTB Act to photograph a tenants unit or personal belongings in preparation for an eviction. Make sure she produces the photos at the LTB and bring this violation up to the LTB judge.

Remember this : If Stewart is knocking on your door then she is there to evict you for her landlord client. Do not trust anything Catherine Stewart says or signs, it is well known she breaches agreements to make you fight for the funds owed as many tenants have had to do in the past against her.

Landlord and tenant Board

  4. Have witnesses present when she does enter and photograph your entire unit before evicting you.
  5. Keep detailed notes and all communication received from Catherine Stewart for court purposes.

Its your place and can do what you want. you do not have to remove anything and the inspector is not allowed to remove them or open closets, cupboards, fridges or stoves to get serial numbers. bring this up at LTB if she does this.
  7. I would paint the sheets with FUCK YOU before I hung them personally but its your call what you do.
  8. Do not open closet doors for inspector or allow him to do so. Against the LTB Act 2006 for them to do so
  9. Film and record the inspector’s movements with a camera or your phone while he is in your home.
  10. Do not open the fridge, stove or any appliance for the inspector. Against the LTB Act 2006 for them to do so.

When you go to Landlord & Tenant Board hearing

  1. Ask for disclosure of ALL documents and the Photos taken when you go to the LTB hearing.
  2. Bring your witnesses into the LTB hearing for the judge to hear testimony of this illegal photographing
  3. Mention to LTB judge that Stewart signs illegal name of April Stewart on legal court documents
  4. Mention to the LTB judge Catherine Stewart is legal name and she is a paid paralegal for the landlord
  5. DEMAND DISCLOSURE !! Stewart is known for not giving disclosure or any evidence for any court hearings.
  6. Check LTB main office for any documents she claims to have had signed by Paul Smith or any witness used
    (Catherine Stewart has been alleged and known to have filed false statements and evidence into hearings)
  7. Bring to the attention of the LTB judge she does not fit the definition of landlord under the LTB Act 2006.
  8. Bring to the attention of the duty counsel Stewart is a paralegal and not allowed to represent landlords in LTB.
  9. Serve a summons to the inspector or the (in our opinion) coward ex OPP boyfriend, Paul Smith who knowingly violates tenants rights for his paralegal girlfriend or wife. (undetermined yet). Best place to serve Paul Smith is 117 Bayfield Street, Barrie or their residence in Walters Falls, Ontario.

File complaints with the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC)

* There are pending complaints filed with the Law Society concerning Stewart’s false statement and false evidence allegations with about 9 other complaints against this pathetic paralegal.Law_Society_of_Upper_Canada_(logo)

  1. Report Catherine Stewart to the Law Society of Upper Canada for investigation again.
  2. Send detailed complaint with all the infractions she is bound to breach and use against you.
  3. Publish the complaints online so the public can see the neglect going on at the Law Society intake process.
  4. Send complaints to the local newspaper or local news station to warn the public of this paralegals tactics.
  5. Send us your info, file numbers and photos to publish here for the public to see on Privacy violators website.

If Stewart manages to evict you from your unit, here are some things you can do to retaliate against her and her landlords for infringing on your tenant’s rights. As long as you are the legal tenant on the agreement, all issues concerning the rental unit would go before the Landlord and Tenant Board again, if you decide to show up for them after the fact.

Any damage done to the rental unit while you are in legal control of the unit would have to be addressed in LTB court or a Civil Court to recover any damages if the landlord goes to the expense of hiring a paralegal or lawyer to pursue costs.

If you are on ODSP or on Public assistance you can not be garnished for any reason and money cannot be taken from your government checks. This is something Stewart does not want you to know before an eviction.


The final goodbye to your landlord and Catherine Stewart after she finally evicts you. Do any of these suggestions at your own risk before the last day of your lease or the agreed move out date if any are set at LTB court.

Barrie police informs us that this will continue to be a Landlord and tenant matter until the lease or agreement is up and you move out.make sure to cost the landlord a lot of money for attacking your tenant privacy and evicting you using the illegal methods of Catherine Stewart and Paul Smith. Do not be nice and make your message heard loudly to retaliate against her sharp practice.
