In this updated post we discuss how Catherine April Stewart acts as a paralegal and property manager for Ralph Dykstra, Donald Dykstra and William Dykstra of the former Electrical company known as Dykstra Electric from Barrie, Ontario.
As the Dykstra’s property manager, Catherine A Stewart, also a paralegal licensed with the Law Society of Upper Canada, has a conflict of interest as stated in the LSUC Rules and Regulations when she disguises herself behind the property management company but in reality is the landlords paralegal.
The paralegal Catherine A Stewart also breaks other LSUC Rules and Regulations, breaches the Business Act and manipulates the LTB court system in Ontario by signing April Stewart to legal Court papers as a property manager when her legal name is Catherine April Stewart.
This property manager / paralegal is also well known for signing agreements in court as April Stewart and refusing to honor the agreements she makes on behalf of her Landlord Only Clients, after all she is a landlord only Rights Advocate..lol.. what a joke !
The tenant is forced to waste their time and money and the Civil Courts time to retrieve Court Orders she had signed on behalf of the landlord client. She does not want you to know this so you will take the deal and move on not knowing it is going to cost you more time and money to retreive ANY order she signs illegally as the property manager when in reality she is a paralegal working for Slum Lord clients.
Paralegals like Catherine April Stewart who abuse the legal system hiding behind the property manager role and then switching to a paralegal role who gets away with entering false documents and false statements, like the evidence from her ex OPP boyfriend Paul Smith goes unchallenged because she claims it is in defense and pursuit of justice for her landlord clients.
Claims of illegal evidence being entered into HRTO 17699-14 against Catherine Stewart and her ex cop boyfriend never saw the motions put forth to the Human Rights Tribunal for the claims against them when she claimed “ABSOLUTE PRIVILEGE” and claims it is for the defense of her clients which in this case was herself and Paul Smith of Walters Falls Ontario.
This piece of work paralegal thinks she has more rights than the rest of Ontario because she went to a CTI college for one year and paid about $15,000 to receive a paralegal license honored by the Law Society of Upper Canada and then gives her the right to lie, not show up, manipulate the system and enter false documents and statements from herself and her retired ex OPP boyfriend, process server, delivery boy, home inspector and witness to anything she says or thinks she can manipulate in her favor or her Landlord clients favor.
Don’t be fooled by her Sharp Practice…she is committing illegal acts when entering this false evidence and testimony so many times in the past as well as manipulating the LTB board acting as a landlords property manager and paralegal.
Catherine Stewart also known as April Stewart of the Property management company Landlord Legal is not entitled to represent landlords in both capacities in LTB and does not fit the definition of “LANDLORD” under the LTB Act 2006 but uses “LANDLORD REPRESENTATIVE” on court documents and signs April Stewart to fool you. This is definitely a conflict of interest from this well know Landlord Rights Only Advocate who needs to manipulate the system in order to further her Landlord Rights campaign she runs from her website located here : http://landlordlegal.ca
Notice their is NO inc (incorporated after this company name when she is acting as a property manager but soon switches to landlordlegal.inc and signs Catherine April Stewart when she is acting as a paralegal for the landlords she represents.
The Law Society has Landlordlegal inc registered to Catherine Stewart but as a Sharp Practice paralegal in the Ontario Court System, Catherine Stewart is known to bend a lot of Rules and Regulations as will be put out for the public to view her and other paralegals tactics when they work around the system pretending to fight for Landlord Rights when in reality they are just manipulating the system, wasting courts time to retrieve orders she signs and fighting illegal and non existent evidence and statements she uses from her boyfriend, ex OPP officer Paul Smith who has been known as a process server, home inspector (not qualified) and Private investigator from 2013 to 2016 when this ex cop had no right claiming to be a private Investigator in the courts when he was not sanctioned or licensed by any company licensed for a private investigator firm in Ontario.Paul Smith has no business cards for himself but did produce a card from his girlfriends paralegal firm to which he wrote his name on it.. now that’s a professional process server and home inspector,private investigator and ready made witness for you. Manipulation of the system is all they do to win for Landlord Rights in Ontario, do not be fooled by their illegal tactics soon to be investigated by the Law Society and followed here on Privacy Violators with several other complaints we received from our readers with dates of complaints that were filed but never show up in this paralegals profile. Why is that ? Complaints, many have been filed but it shows none on Catherine Stewart’s Law society profile, including the break and enter allegations David Cass dismissed without further investigation at all. The Law Society is hiding the truth behind Lawyers and paralegal complaints that have been filed and we will have further posts to bring this to the public’s attention.
Between the property management company and signing April Stewart to LTB and other court documents to representing landlords as a paralegal under landlordlegal.inc signing as Catherine Stewart, she has deceived the courts for over 15 years and needs to be investigated along with the false evidence and false testimony given from this Paul Smith acting as a private investigator when not licensed and being protected by his paralegal girlfriend when she says she is his paralegal.
My advice that I like to give the HATE email received concerning the conflict of interest and manipulation is go to school for one year at CTI college, pay the tuition and get your paralegal icense so you to can fuck with our court system, manipulate the police and do and say anything believing it is in pursuit of justice.
The only justice served here is when the law Society revokes this paralegals license and we post their reports here on Privacy Violators website.
This paralegal has represented in civil cases when she stood before Judge Kalwosky and stated it was her first time to the April 2016 Human Rights Hearing where she represented herself, Paul Smith and the Dykstra Bros and stated on that day she did not know the Human Rights process and refused to continue until Toronto lawyer David Strashin showed up 2 1/2 hours late to the pre scheduled hearing delaying it and making the participants wait for his ass to show.
There are many details of the Human Rights cases filed against her that will be discussed and evidence, correspondence and other details will be brought to life for the general public to see how paralegals like Catherine Stewart are allowed to proceed in our Court System although clearly it is a conflict of interest with deliberate illegal intentions and whatever it takes for this Sharp Practice paralegal to manipulate, delay or alter a case with her false evidence and false testimony from her ex OPP officers private investigator claims and false testimony.
Paul Smith appeared on the witness stand for Stewart’s landlord clients, Dykstra Bros Electric although he was not on the witness list and had nothing to do with any of the civil court claims she had filed. Typical when you are abusive of our court system and the Law Society members like David Cass dismiss legitimate complaints filed against her for the August 15th 2014 break and enter she ordered Paul Robertson of Central Lock and Key to perform while Barrie police officers Cst Beard and Cst Turner stood by and witnessed this and did nothing after telling her she did not have the paperwork or the right to enter…SHE IGNORED THEM ALSO AND PROCEEDED UNTIL THE TENANT ARRIVED HOME..then fled the scene with the Dykstras who were also present for the illegal entry.
This piece of work paralegal is also known to serve the tenant directly when they are represented by legal council which is also against the rules of the LSUC.No contact to clients when legal representation is known.
This property manager is known to send Do Not Trespass letters without any letterhead to intimidate opposing parties.Catherine Stewart is known to directly serve papers,warnings and other threats to the opposing party although they have legal representation, happened a couple of times including Paul Smith serving documents directly for his paralegal girlfriend when he himself is named in the HRTO 17699-14 and the HRTO did nothing about the suppose to be FAIR PROCESS..again BULLSHIT..FUCK YOU
The paralegal openly threatens the Human Rights applicant on her public website for her property management company during HRTO proceedings and they did nothing of the threats, the contact or the false statements or false evidence they submitted for HRTO 17699-14 & HRTO 16250-13.
The paralegal failed to show for the LTB hearing scheduled and Catherine Stewart was named in directly for the break and enter. She sent another paralegal in her place, who is named in another post to lie to the LTB courts saying Stewart was out of town September 2013 when the hearing was held.
Many of these posts have already been written over the last 3 years but the newer posts will have documents, statements and other facts uploaded for you to see what Catherine Stewart has been able to get away with for 15 years acting as a property manager, paralegal and her ex cop boyfriend claiming many times in past LTB cases to be a private investigator when in fact he was not licensed in that capacity but used this to his girlfriends advantage.
Every document, submission, email sent or received, HRTO correspondence from Mary truemner and anything related to the Hum,an rights and Civil cases this writer was involved in will be disclosed online so you can see the joke of a Court system and how the Law Society does noting to protect Canadian citizens from paralegals who have nothing to lose but a bit of money and one year of CTI training to become a paralegal in the province of Ontario.
We have recently become aware the OPP has and is wasting time money and police resources with complaints from ex OPP cop, pretend private investigator, process server and delivery boy for his paralegal girlfriend to try and stop the truth from exposing the reality of what they are doing in Landlord and Tenant Board and other courts they have been involved in.Fuck you. The public needs to know the truth !! Our Constitutional right to express ourselves and our opinions in publications such as this. Do your job and investigate the corruption in our legal system starting with the ex OPP officer she uses for her own gains for her landlord clients.
We have the right to post the truth and you should be looking into false statements and false evidence allegations and Smith falsely identifying himself as a private investigator to the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, Barrie Civil Courts, Human Rights Tribunal and to the Barrie police when he was not legal to act in this capacity instead of harassing a citizen for exercising his constitutional rights.
The Law Society Complaints are being worked on and as you can read with the many posts written here on Privacy Violators website, there is a lot of issues, conflicts,complaints and evidence to submit to the Canadian Communist party known as the Law Society of Upper Canada who has been well informed of the abuse going on in this court system and do nothing to stop it.
Why should they (LSUC) investigate conflict of interests and conduct unbecoming a paralegal, they are lawyers as well, regulating other lawyers and paralegals and to bring this to light will also diminish their rights to fuck with the system as well in pursuit of their clients they represent.The same thing in Human rights when Mary Truemner refused to here false evidence allegations when submitted by paralegal Catherine Stewart, David Strashin and Paul Smith for HRTO 17699-14 and HRTO 16250-13 (Dykstra)
ALL LIVES MATTER .. FUCK YOU..Truth is the only rights you have are the ones you are willing to defend yourself..the system is rigged.
Check out all the Human Rights “ABSOLUTE PRIVILEGE” claims used on the Canlii website that keeps track of the hearings and decisions and then tell me we have rights in Ontario.
Also check out Ross vs Dykstra Bros Electric and Ross vs Stewart & Smith for further details to prove these claims I bring to the public to see what a joke the Human Rights process is in Communist Canada.

The Stewart Solution ~ A Tenants Guide to harassment and what you can do to retaliate
When 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.
CATHERINE STEWART DOES NOT HONOR ANY AGREEMENT SHE MAKES OR SIGNS !!
Read the many posts about not trusting Stewart and failing to honor her signed agreement.
- Take and post photos of Paul Smith when he attempts to photograph your unit against the LTB rules.

- Record everything Paul Smith (or any inspector Catherine Stewart sends) does and says in your unit.
- Have witnesses present when she does enter and photograph your entire unit before evicting you.
- Keep detailed notes and all communication received from Catherine Stewart for court purposes.
- Hang sheets over walls or cover personal photos, documents before inspector comes. 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.
- I would paint the sheets with FUCK YOU before I hung them personally but its your call what you do.
- Do not open closet doors for inspector or allow him to do so. Against the LTB Act 2006 for them to do so
- Film and record the inspector’s movements with a camera or your phone while he is in your home.
- Do not open the fridge, stove or any appliance for the inspector. Against the LTB Act 2006 for them to do so.
- The time and date for the inspection has to be noted on the Intent to enter ahe will place on your door.

When you go to Landlord & Tenant Board hearing

- Mention to LTB judge that Stewart signs illegal name of April Stewart on legal court documents

- 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.

- Send detailed complaint with all the infractions she is bound to breach and use against you.

- Send complaints to the local newspaper or local news station to warn the public of this paralegals tactics.
- 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.
FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE – ILLEGAL EVICTIONS ARE WRONG !!
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.

Should a paralegal be running a property management company and representing landlords in LTB ?
According to the Landlord & Tenant Act.. NO she doesn’t fit the definition of Landlord and is known to us April Stewart as a Landlord representative instead of Catherine Stewart the LEGAL representative ! COMPLETE MANIPULATION OF THE LTB COURTS
Catherine April Stewart of Walters Falls, Ontario has been alleged to have been operating a fraudulent property management firm since 2006 when she became a paralegal and joined the Law Society of Upper Canada and was bound by the rules set out by the LSUC.
Stewart claims on her Landlord Legal website about us page, she sold the property management company in 2006 but obviously lied since she is still known to operate the company from Barrie, Ontario to this day although in conflict with the LSUC rules.Stewart uses an email contact system to screen landlord applicants off of her website.
Catherine Stewart, a licensed paralegal with the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) since 2006, has been known to operate the fraudulent property management company under the name Landlord legal from a small cubicle office located at 117 Bayfield Street, Barrie Ontario.
The property Stewart uses for her conflict of interest paralegal / property management businesses is shared with an account firm and the building is owned by Wendy Kara of Sophia Development Corporation.
The accountants that share the building have been known to receive legal documents that were suppose to be delivered to a secure Legal office but instead ended up in the hands of the other tenants thus unknowingly releasing private and confidential information meant for her legal firm.Another breach of the Rules of Conduct of paralegals for receiving private and confidential legal court documents.
As a licensed paralegal with the LSUC Stewart is suppose to be bound to follow the Paralegal Rules of Conduct set out by the Law Society. Stewart uses her paralegal status along with her property management firm and her boyfriends ex OPP status, private investigator claims and process server company to harass and evict tenants for her landlord clients.
Stewart has been known to file vexatious Civil Court claims in 2013 against Privacy-Violators but abandoned the claims when she filed in the wrong court to have this website shut down for warning the public against her sharp practice tactics against tenants.Stewart will,have to take the matter to Supreme Court of Canada to stop the warnings and publications of her illegal actions and knowingly misleading the Landlord and Tenant Board.
Catherine Stewart has been known to break many of the Paralegal Rules of Conduct, but when Stewart operates the 2 businesses together, they are a conflict of interest according to the Law Society guidelines set out for registered Lawyers and Paralegals.
Conflict of interest
- a) Paralegal – Landlord Legal.inc
b) Property management – Landlord Legal
- Insecure legal files being received by other tenants in building
- Uses name not registered with LSUC when property manager – April Stewart
- Harasses involved parties to court cases she is accused in
- Has been known to break into tenants units illegally Read this post : HERE
- Has been known to threaten Human Rights applicant who filed claims against her on her website
- Has been known to submit false evidence into Human Rights allegations against her and Paul Smith
- Has been known to submit false statements from Paul Smith into Human Rights allegations against them

Catherine Stewart’s Law Society profile can be found listed at the LSUC public portal HERE
Stewart has been known to sign April Stewart (not legal name) to legal court documents and then refuses to honor agreements she makes under her fraudulent property management company making tenants she goes after, waste court time, waste tenants money and knowingly breaches the LSUC Rules of Conduct again in doing so. As a paralegal she can not make and sign agreements and then deliberately not honor them costing the other parties monies to collect. This is another complaint put forth in the new LSUC complaints filed against her.
Stewart is known to refer to herself as a “Landlord representative” in LTB hearings not a legal representative !!
Stewart is known to manipulate the LTB courts constantly and breaches the rules of conduct for her landlord clients.
Diane Smith has been known to work for Catherine Stewart in the past and is a disgraced paralegal who also operated a paralegal firm under different names and failed to show up for the Law Society hearing when complaints were filed against her. Diane Smith sold her house on Masters Drive in Barrie and was alleged to have moved to New Market with her son before the Law Society could catch up with her.
Read the LSUC determination against Diane Smith and the fines set out HERE.
There has been numerous reports of this “SHARP PRACTICE” tactic done by paralegal Catherine Stewart.
If you would like to learn what Sharp Practice is then please read this post HERE.
The Canada Revenue Agency, after being contacted by us about possible tax fraud, stated it has no listed business or tax records of Stewart’s property management company she runs in conjunction with her paralegal firm.
There was also no business records or tax records for Paul Smith, Stewart’s alleged ex OPP boyfriend or husband operating a Private Investigator company, and acting as Process Server for over 10 years for his paralegal girlfriend.
Catherine Stewart, who works for landlords only, has also been known to break rules under the Business Act, when Stewart uses two separate names for running her fraudulent scheme.
Catherine April Stewart is also known to call herself a Landlord Advocate and the “Terminator” when she attacks tenants rights that are set out in the Landlord and Tenant Act 2006 and the Human Rights Code.
Catherine Stewart does not fit the definition of a “Landlord” under the act and again is in conflict with the LSUC when she knowingly appears for landlords at LTB hearings.
Catherine Stewart defended herself and ex OPP boyfriend Paul Smith, against Human Rights allegations brought up against them by a tenant in 2013.
The Paralegal Rules of Conduct set out by the LSUC can be read here : PARALEGAL RULES OF CONDUCT
New complaints have again been filed with the Law Society to look into the Sharp practice tactics, harassment, conflict of interest, false testimony and false evidence submitted by Catherine Stewart in the Human Rights allegations brought up against her and her ex OPP boyfriend Paul Smith, who operated as a Private Investigator when he was not legal or licensed to do so.
We will of course be following the LSUC complaints to see what if anything the Law Society does to protect the public and court participants against illegal tactics of this paralegal who took a 1 year college course to get her paralegal license and manipulates the law and the rules for her landlord clients.
This paralegal definitely puts the Law Society in disrepute with her Sharp Practice and illegal methods.
Please continue to email us details when you encounter this paralegal or her ex OPP boyfriend when they try to evict you.The new series, entitled The Stewart Solution might have some interesting tactics you can use against Catherine Stewart or April Stewart and her landlord clients. You can take or leave the advice we give to tenants in the new upcoming articles.
The Stewart Solution series will be published soon to give tenants some ideas of what you can do, or what you can destroy, and get away with it legally when you get harassed by this lowlife paralegal (in our opinion).
FIGHT TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS !! Nobody else is going to do it for you.
How do you defend the rights of landlords when you harass, deceive and infringe on tenants Human Rights.
Catherine Stewart is a self proclaimed Landlord rights advocate and self proclaimed “terminator” and is a fraud !!
This post refers to the term “Sharp Practice” in relationship to the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) Rules of Conduct, for paralegals and lawyers, refers to and occurs when the LSUC licensed parties use methods to abuse the process of legal proceedings that are not following the rules of the Law Society, not warranted, not standardized or legal, meant to hide their clients and disrupt or delay ANY legal proceedings or ANY COURT matters they are involved in !!.
Gaming the system (also referred to as gaming the rules, bending the rules, abusing the system, cheating the system, milking the system, playing the system, or working the system) can be defined as using the rules and procedures meant to protect a system in order, instead, to manipulate the system for a desired outcome
Legal abuse refers to abuses associated with both civil and criminal legal action. Abuse can originate from nearly any part of the legal system, including frivolous and vexatious litigants, abuses by law enforcement, incompetent, careless or corrupt attorneys and misconduct from the judiciary itself.
Vexatious litigation is legal action which is brought, regardless of its merits, solely to harass or subdue an adversary. It may take the form of a primary frivolous lawsuit or may be the repetitive, burdensome, and unwarranted filing of meritless motions in a matter which is otherwise a meritorious cause of action. Filing vexatious litigation is considered an abuse of the judicial process and may result in sanctions against the offender.
A single action, even a frivolous one, is usually not enough to raise a litigant to the level of being declared vexatious. Rather, a pattern of frivolous legal actions is typically required to rise to the level of vexatious. Repeated and severe instances by a single lawyer or firm can result in eventual disbarment.
SHARP PRACTICE is frowned upon by the Law Society of Upper Canada Rules of Conduct.Many Paralegals and Lawyers use Sharp Practice in their legal firms participation in the legal system further causing back logs of legal proceedings needlessly in defense of their firm or their clients.
Examples of Sharp Practice, is not showing, or notifying parties, using acting agents, locksmiths and other parties related to their cause, that have NO PHYSICAL BUSINESS ADDRESS anywhere, to deliver Court Summonses when they are, or clients are involved in legal proceedings.
Remember SHARP Practice = do whatever it takes, does not matter if they present at, or commit a criminal act, the LSUC rules, the Criminal Code, PIPEDA, Chart Rights, Human Rights or the Rules and procedures in any court proceeding you or your client are involved in.
Should you breach other peoples INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS if your a well known LANDLORD ONLY RIGHTS ACTIVIST ?
Rights are for everybody…not just landlords !
How do you justify defending the rights of anyone… when you are alleged to have constantly violate the rights of others ??
Eviction Specialist, C A Stewart of Landlord legal inc refused to accept her alleged boyfriends Paul t Smith summons issued June 2013, delivered to her legal office at 117 Bayfield Street when Smith acted as an agent on Landlord legal inc behalf and her law firm was directly involved in the LTB Tribunal, and HR matters the tenant had filed.
Eviction Specialist, C A Stewart of Landlord legal inc, uses agents or sub contractors companies like Paul Richardsons’ Central Lock & Key, that has NO BRICK & MORTAR STORE, to enter tenants units, change locks and other duties she needs done. Central Lock & Key were hard to get a summons served to, as they are MOBILE UNIT ONLY and Mr Richardson son, Cody Richardson threatened the tenant. and tried to hit his vehicle with the Central lock & Key company van while attempting to serve them summonses for Superior Court Civil matters.
Paul Richardson saves a phone recording for 2 years from attempts to get him served for LTB matters in 2013, and lies about the date of the recording, and plays it on the witness stand to allegedly deceive the court, and help C A Stewarts Dykstra clients in court.
Using “acting agents” or “sub contractors” that are next to impossible to summons, or that paralegals can block access to, is a very common practice done among paralegals and lawyers who practice SHARP PRACTICE frowned by the LSUC.
Landlord Legal signs and enters testimony and allegations from Rob Scruton that have not been heard in any court, not even once into Dykstra civil matters.
Landlord Legal enters and serves documents, evidence and her signed statement of Scrutons testimony breaking rules of procedures and rules of a fair proceeding.
Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal, and her clients Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra and Donald Dykstra of Dykstra Bros Electric, DO NOT SHOW AGAIN for the motions to dismiss the evidence and testimony Stewart entered against the rules of procedures for civil hearing SCC#1852-13.
Landlord Legal places Rob Srcuton on her witness list, though she serves against the rules by not giving “proper notice” or the required “will says” to interview the surprise witness from Innisfil, Ontario, Canada. Stewart does this surprise tactic less than 2 weeks before a hearing date. All evidence and will says were court ordered to be delivered to all parties prior to the Landlord Legal inc tactic used.
Catherine Stewart should have known or aught to have known the rules of procedures for small claims court.
Catherine Stewart of landlord legal should have known or aught to have known it was wrong to sign affidavits for her witness, Rob Scruton, when Stewart is directly involved in the Civil proceedings and Human Rights allegations against her firm. False testimony and conflict of interest concerns and allegations just to influence a proceeding Landlord legal and her Dykstra clients are directly involved in.
Catherine Stewart of Landlord legal should have known or aught to have known the testimony she signed for Rob Scruton had never seen one day in court, but enters his testimony she signed anyways to a legal proceeding she was involved in directly.
Paul T Smith, retired OPP officer of 30 years is another witness NOT ON THE WITNESS LIST EITHER, Catherine Stewart of landlord legal inc has not provided proper notice or the will says, for her alleged boyfriend. Paul T Smith ends up on the stand in civil court Dec 2015, for C A Sewarts Dykstra clients, although he is connected to breaching Human Rights while acting as an agent for Landlord legal and Dykstra Bros Electric, and had absolutely no knowledge of the allegations in her Dykstra clients proceedings.
Landlord Legal should have known it was wrong to keep using alleged boyfriend Paul Smith, to serve the documents against the rules of procedures, when her alleged boyfriend and Stewart have pending Human rights allegations against them since May 2014.
After not showing for the motions to dismiss the evidence, Stewart has the motions heard the same day and in front of the same Judge hearing the Dykstra hearing.
Stewart also files another motion to split ( after motioning to join ) her personal SCC#1851-13 civil matter filed the same day as Dykstras claim, which Stewart was told by the Judge in March 2014, was filed in the wrong court to deal with her demands to have this website shut down.Filed Oct 2013 and still in the wrong court in February 0f 2016…can you say harassment and vexatious

Landlord Legal inc owner 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.

Barrie police refuse to charge the paralegal numerous times with the numerous unsubstantiated and false allegations she makes, of the ongoing harassment, allegations of false documents submitted for legal proceedings or for Applicant to press criminal harassment charges for the break in and illegal lock change witnessed by attending police officers and instructing paralegal that she had NO RIGHT or LEGAL DOCUMENT required to enter 40 Ellen Street, Barrie Ont on August 15th 2013. when Catherine Stewart and the Dykstras’ were present and proceeded to order the locksmith to cut security chain and enter unit illegally.
Catherine Stewart, owner of Landlord Legal filed civil matters Oct 2013 against the ex tenant, knowing of the pending HUMAN RIGHTS matters, amended the SCC 1851-13 application after a year to a personal claim, being told the matter was in the wrong court and needed to go to a higher court to deal with the publication of legal proceedings against her and her Dykstra Bros Electric company of Barrie clients.
Catherine Stewart has locksmiths attend to remove locks after 2 Barrie police officers tell Landlord Legal, that it is “not legal” and “no proper documentation” to do so, but DOES ANYWAYS illegally but states on her website the proper way to get to the SHERIFFS’ office and get the proper paperwork… We figured it is a case of “do as I say and not as I do , or teach”.
Catherine A Stewart of Landlord legal also gives lectures that instructs and teaches landlords not to put tenants on the defensive as well, and to “GO LOOK IN THE WINDOWS WHEN TENANT NOT HOME. wow, can anyone say Trespassing,not to mention teaching landlords, real estate persons, agents and other attendees a serious tenant invasion of privacy.
Catherine Stewarts personal SCC1851-13 allegations are still pending, and are public record, as of Feb 2016 and after filing original claim in Oct 2013, to delay the Law Society complaints, and Human Rights allegations against her company, her alleged boyfriend, and Dykstra Bros Electric owners’.
The SCC1851-13 civil matter filed by C A Stewart is still pending, as Stewart has taken NO ACTION after being told it was IN THE WRONG court.
Catherine Stewart also claimed she had hired David Strashin to represent her for the higher court in July 2014 but again has not taken any action to further her claims.
The Applicant has claimed his Charter Rights, Fundamental Freedoms 2(b) and will continue to defend the public forums, open court and HR publicized findings in all proceedings he is involved in with Catherine Stewart, Paul T Smith,Ralph Dykstra,Donald Dykstra and William Dykstra.

Read the stories surrounding Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal and her clients, Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra, Donald Dykstra, owners of Dykstra Bros Electric of Barrie as well as the allegations against Landlord legal and Catherine Stewart, use your judgement and see if you feel that Landlord legal inc uses the frowned upon Hard Practices in her legal firm.
Let Privacy Violators know of ANY paralegal or Lawyer that you have been involved with uses methods listed here on our website to gain advantages over the other party they are involved with in legal proceedings.
The Human Rights allegations against Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra and Donald Dykstra of Dykstra Bros Electric company of Barrie, Ontario started in 2013 and proceedings continue at the HRTO as of January 20th 2016 when David Strashin, apparently came on record but has not notified the HRTO or involved parties of this fact and according to the HRTO Rules of Procedures during proceedings.
The Human Rights allegations against Paul Smith, Catherine Stewart and Landlord Legal paralegal firm of Barrie, Ontario started in 2013 and proceedings continue at the HRTO as of January 20th 2016, when David Strashin, apparently came on record to represent the LTB paralegal who has represented, and delayed the Dykstra Bros allegations, for the last 3 years, in HRTO, but has not notified the HRTO or involved parties of this fact according to the HRTO Rules of Procedures.
With the HR Applicant filing many LSUC allegations, complaints, and concerns starting back from May 24th 2013, with many more complaints to file up to February 2016, Landlord legal has not even been investigated once in the last 3 years by the Law Society of Upper Canada, or the Barrie police from the many complaints filed by the applicant while waiting for the pending HR matter to finish.
Stewart had in Oct 2013 blocked the Law Society complaints by filing and stalling vexatious claims to delay the complaints and the human Rights allegations filed against her legal firm, boyfriend and her Dykstra clients.
3 years and STILL working as a paralegal in our legal system, with many pending unanswered allegations, including illegal entry, illegal lock change, abuse of process allegations, Rules of procedures breaches,entering false documents into legal proceedings allegations, harassment allegations, threatening, coercing and the Human Rights allegations against her legal firm, boyfriend and her Dykstra Bros Electric clients, but still in the legal system.
The HR applicant has requested a time extension from the Law Society of Upper Canada, to file the many allegations and concerns regarding Landlord legal inc, Howard Tavroges and new claims against David Strashin of Toronto. Read the posts on the Law Society of Upper Canada refusing to investigate complaints filed June 2013 against Landlord legal inc
The Law Society of Upper Canada complaints filed against Howard Tavroges, and Catherine Stewart of Landlord legal inc of 117 Bayfield Street, Barrie have been delayed when Stewart claims over legal proceedings are ongoing and the LSUC delayed investigating the May 2013 claims brought forth by the ex tenant over privacy invasion and illegal break in and illegal lock change after a mediated settlement July 18 2013 in LTB Tribunal matters.

THE DIRECTOR OF THE LAW SOCIETY OF UPPER CANADA REFUSED TO INVESTIGATE LEGITIMATE COMPLAINTS !!
Privacy-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 locksmith 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.
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 Services, 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

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

STAND UP AND PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS !!
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.
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.
PUBLIC BEWARE !!
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 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.
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
