Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal VS Privacy Violators 2013 – 2015 in Full review

April Stewart
47-year-old April Stewart the privacy violator

NO MORE WAITING FOR UPDATES TO : Catherine Stewart VS Privacy Violators website small claims case SCC #1851-13

The following series of posts, is to bring the followers of the Catherine April Stewart VS Privacy Violators website claims and bring the full progress of the allegations in the Barrie, Ontario Small Claims Court, Catherine April Stewart filed against this website from October 2013.



** BE SURE TO READ THE DYKSTRA BROS ELECTRIC allegations in the Dykstra Bros Electric 2013-2015 in full review with audio from the first LTB Dykstra hearing May 7th 2013 & October 24th 2013 illegal entry and illegal lock change from Paul Richardson and his son Cody Richardson from Central Lock and Key services from Barrie, Ontario.


** Read also the new Central Lock & Key posts concerning the incident August 15th as well as Paul Richardson testimony in court and about his sons threats when he was summoned for the Barrie civil hearing March 12th 2015.A police complaint was filed for the threats made from Cody Richardson when he was served to be a witness in the civil cases for the illegal entry and illegal lock change made by his dads company, Central Lock and Key, which was ordered from Catherine Stewart directly to do so, in front of the attending Barrie Police officers Beard and Turner.
Cody Richardson, although summoned did not attend !

Catherine Stewart had previously brought a motion for her personal lawsuit to be heard together with her Dykstra Bros Electric clients, Ralph Dykstra, Bill Dykstra and Donald Dykstra SCC #1852-13 which was heard in Barrie courts March 12 2015, and then did a motion for them to be separated after 17 months of waiting.

The civil judge at the hearing did not hear Catherine Stewart’s case, although there was little evidence submitted by Stewart and no witnesses from either side to be called upon during the Dykstra hearing, instead he had allowed her motion, and put Stewart’ hearing off until June 30th 2015 further delaying the Law Society complaints filed by the ex tenant against her paralegal firm, Landlord Legal inc.

A copy of the civil court transcripts with the two attending Barrie police officers testimony and Paul Richardson of Central Locksmith statements from the hearing have been requested and a letter to the director of the Law Society requesting a time extension is to be filed after receiving them for the illegal entry and illegal lock change allegations filed from August 2013 against Catherine Stewart and her firm.

Other complaints lodged with the Law Society against Catherine Stewart were for constantly delaying and wasting court time deliberately when she claimed to be out of the country for the September 24 2013 LTB hearing and many other court dates she did not attend or notify the other party involved in civil matters for the retrieval of the funds owed from an LTB order she personally signed July 2013, which the tenant had to take to civil court to get and for the 2 civil cases she had filed against Privacy Violators, including not showing up for the mandatory settlement conference after filing her lawsuits, and the many motions during the last 2 years in which given lots of notice but failed to show. All the orders and the judgement from these cases will be posted soon on the website.

Privacy Violators website has received many email complaints about Landlord Legal inc doing the same thing to them in past LTB hearings as well as vexatious claims she has brought up against other tenants and not provide disclosure, prove her claims she had filed with invoices and or proof and then turn around and withdraw her claims she had brought forth in LTB to intimidate or scare the tenant into submission. We have asked several people to provide documentation for these past allegations so we may add them to our own complaints or help them file there own personal complaints against Stewart for the Law Society of Upper Canada.

Catherine April Stewart of Landlord Legal inc has been allowed to manipulate the Barrie police, Landlord and Tenant Board and the Barrie Civil courts on many occasions and with the many emails we have received on our website concerning her past actions regarding this will bring it up in LSUC complaints as well.

Check out Landlord Legal inc new website changed last year and read the tenant story she has posted on her front page, and then come back and read the many complaints and stories posted here on Privacy Violators website.

Landlord Legal - Catherine StewartThe Small Claims lawsuit Catherine Stewart had filed for $25,000 for allegedly damaging her paralegal firms reputation and other allegations against Privacy Violators website, filed in October 2013, and then amended late last year, by Stewart, when the Barrie court told her she was in the wrong court to have our website shut down have yet to finalize and see the inside of a courtroom.


Catherine April Stewart of Landlord Legal inc has wasted the civil courts time by not showing up when fighting to get the order paid from LTB and repeatedly FAILING to notify the other party that her paralegal firm had filed the lawsuit against , for the mandatory settlement conference, and for many motions for the #1851-13 & #1852-13 cases heard.

This is NOT THE FIRST TIME April Stewart of Landlord Legal inc has failed to show or to notify the other side for civil cases or Landlord & Tenant Board tribunal dates that were set and provided to her well within the time limits given by the courts.

The numerous Law Society of Upper Canada complaints previously filed in 2013 & 2014 against April Stewart of Landlord Legal inc by her clients Dykstra Bros Electric inc ex tenant, and also against another private practice paralegal associated with her firm Landlord Legal inc, Howard Paul Tavroges for privacy issues were put on hold by the LSUC until the current court matters filed from April Stewart are heard in civil court.The complaints that were filed do not show up tavrogese-image_400x400anywhere on the LSUC website, not even as outstanding complaints or pending complaints so there is no way to know there are complaints previously filed and on record.

This is another tactic used by paralegals such as April Stewart & Howard Tavroges to delay courts, frustrate and waste time and money !!

** Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal inc has June 30th 2015 to hear her allegations she filed October 2013 when she filed her claim against this website. Catherine Stewart failed to show for the Small Claims Court mandatory settlement conference set for the allegations she made against us. An order was made for Stewart to pay the tenant for NOT NOTIFYING the tenant or the court that she did not intend on being present for this hearing. Landlord Legal inc clients, Dykstra Bros Electric also failed to show or notify the tenant or the court that they also had no intentions of paying the order nor for attending this mandatory hearing.

Dykstras commercial plaza Ellen 38 St BarrieAllegations that Privacy Violators had damaged her Dykstra Bros Electric clients and Landlord legal paralegal firm reputation after posting actual police incident reports and claims of harassment, illegal lock change, illegal entry which were directed by April Stewart to the  locksmiths while Barrie Police stood by and watched her do an illegal act and did nothing while they were acting under the authority of her Landlord Legal inc paralegal firm in July 2013 cannot be to damaging to her firm as she does not seem interested in ending this long dispute and does not attend her own lawsuit to justify her claims !!

The past topics and postings on Privacy Violators website of the actual police incident reports, Law Society of Upper Canada complaints and all the direct court documents that supported it’s allegations following April Catherine Stewart, owner of Landlord Legal inc, actions against a past tenant of Dykstra Bros Electric of Barrie, Ontario whom she was representing led Stewart to file a Small Claims case against this website.

Health Canada breaches MMA participants privacy

health-canada Health Canada has come under investigation again from the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, after receiving hundreds of complaints that Health Canada had sent out revealing private information to 40,000 registered participants in the Medical Marihuana Access Program (MMAP) that clearly had identifying Medical Marihuana Access (MMA) program association on the upper left of the envelopes. The letters sent out, and received by approximately 40,000 participants in late November, clearly stated on the envelope that they were from the Marihuana Medical Access Program.

In the six years of being a MMAP registered participant, I have always received and sent correspondence to and from the Health Canada MMAP through private special delivery mail, tracked and signature required.health-canada-MMAR-letter

Your Pal AL has had many correspondences with several investigators from the Privacy Commissioner of Canada from my all my personal complaints that i have filed.. and all I can say is when its not a big corporation they are investigating, and only private sector personal complaints, they did not investigate much at all.

All the complaints that were filed by me against Landlord Legal, Dykstra Bros Electric, Coin Hoarders Treasury and Health Canada, with all the corresponding letters to and from the Privacy Commissioner of Canada investigators will be posted here as all are scanned and organized soon.

A class action lawsuit has been filed against Health Canada for the clear breach of privacy that had occurred. Here is another good post to check out from the Ottawa Citizen with Liberal health critic Hedy Fry urging the Federal Privacy Commissioner to find out why Health Canada outed the 40,000 Medical Marihuana Access users, leaving them vulnerable to home invasion and robbery.

From Ottawa Citizen post : “Medical marihuana privacy breach due to Health Canada “incompetence”,critics say”.

Hedy Fry ~ Liberal health critic

“Privacy alone is a huge breach,” she said, “but now the risks to some of these people is huge. It’s really extraordinary and this government has to answer why, on three separate occasions in the last two years, they have screwed up. This government knows how to keep who said what to whom in the Prime Minister’s Office secret, but they aren’t competent enough to keep important information about Canadians that under the Privacy Act they have to keep secret.”


Shortly after the letters became public , Health Canada deputy minister George Da Post issued a statement apologizing to the 40,000 recipients.

“Health Canada is taking steps to ensure this does not happen again,” he said.

In a statement to the Ottawa Citizen, Health Canada denied that any changes had been made to its mailing procedures.

Diane Smith – Barrie Paralegal Investigated by Upper Law Society of Canada

Diane Smith Paralegal -Barrie
Diane Smith Paralegal -Barrie

A complaint to the Upper Law Society of Canada regarding a Barrie paralegal Diane Lynn Smith  (link to the ULSC website – go to directory) to be  investigated for allegedly sending a letter to a tenant while she was under suspension and other allegations. The Upper Law Society has not sent any further information as to its point in the investigation or its rulings. Can you see after reading the letter she sent to the Tenant, what the other complaint the Tenant filed against her ?

The Smith Paralegal Facebook page shows her having an office on Anne Street last year, and another address for the Bayfield Mall to the Masters Drive address on her letterhead in June of this year. This was voted to be added to our Paralegals Gone Wild Section.



Read the letter that was sent to the tenant and see if you can pick out the reason why the Tenant initially filed the complaints against Smith Paralegal Services of Barrie. Diane Smith is Suspended Administratively.
Suspended Administratively means : “A paralegal who has been suspended for administrative reasons, such as failing to pay fees or file forms on time. A suspended paralegal is not permitted by the Law Society to provide legal services.”
There will be further postings to update the status of the complaints that were filed in June 2013 with the Upper Law Society and any additional legal action taken.


It is always a good practice to check the Upper Law Society website for the status of any Lawyer or paralegal to see if any prior complaints have been filed,  their license type and their status with the Law Society of Upper Canada.


Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia defines Landlord Harassment as :

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


** We will post the actual complaint filed and the results when the Upper Law Society finishes investigating the alleged claims against Smith.

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). We also provide educational seminars to landlords, real estate agents, investors and investment clubs, that are as entertaining as they are informative! Imagine the stories we can tell around here!

This is NOT the case when dealing with the illegal property management offices of paralegal Catherine Stewart !

  1. She uses illegal ownership name of April Stewart in LTB matters when acting as property manager under Landlord Legal
  2. She uses legal name of Catherine Stewart when acting as a paralegal for landlords under Landlord Legal.inc
  3. Catherine Stewart openly uses the self appointed term of “The Terminator”, as property manager and paralegal !!
  4. Has TENANT DO NOT ENTER SIGNS on property management door
  6. Sends letters, threats and warnings to tenants to EMAIL her their issues ONLY !
  7. Has been known to break into tenants house with the Barrie police watching and doing absolutely nothing
  8. Barrie police were an accessory to the break and enter when they witnessed it and took no actions !
  9. Has been known to openly threaten a tenant and HRTO applicant on her property management website
  10. Has EMAIL ONLY REGISTRATION forms available only from her website http://www.landlordlegal.ca for her illegal services
  11. Does not and will not accept communications for tenant emergencies or complaints or any issues
  12. Will NOT ADDRESS TENANT ISSUES for her landlord clients she represents
  13. Uses her alleged retired ex OPP officer boyfriend-husband to do illegal searches of tenants unit
  14. Has been known to use false testimony from ex OPP boyfriend in LTB, privacy commissioner complaints, Civil Court and HRTO
  15. Has been known to enter false evidence into HRTO matters filed against Paul Smith and Catherine Stewart
  16. has been known to sign LTB agreements for her landlord clients under April Stewart numerous times
  17. Has been known numerous times NOT TO HONOR any AGREEMENT she signs as April Stewart property manager
  18. Is NOT LEGAL to represent landlords as both property manager and paralegal in LTB matters.
  19. Breaches constitutional rights and the LTB Act using Paul Smith to photograph tenants houses, apartments
  20. Is only HIRED to EVICT THE TENANT not act as a legal property manager for landlords only
  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.


Canadian PIPEDA Laws



Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act or PIPEDA for short

A Guide For Businesses & Organizations

Complying with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act

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

Good privacy is good business

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

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

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

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


PIPEDA in brief

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

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

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

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


The basic outline of PIPEDA looks like this:

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

 Your responsibilities under PIPEDA

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

How to file A Privacy Complaint

At the federal government  level, your privacy rights are protected by two separate laws:

The Privacy Act :applies to federal government institutions, and the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), which also applies to many private-sector organizations.
Under these laws, individuals have the right to complain to the Privacy Commissioner of Canada if they feel their personal information has been mishandled.

Privacy Act
(federal government institutions) The Privacy Act sets out the rules for the collection, use and disclosure of personal information by federal government institutions. It also gives individuals the right to see the information the government holds about them, and to request any corrections.

(private-sector organizations) The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) sets out the rules that private-sector organizations must follow when they handle personal information in the course of their commercial activities. For federally regulated businesses, PIPEDA also applies to the personal information of employees.

Read the Guide here : A Guide for Individuals – Your Guide to PIPEDA


How To File A Complaint (PIPEDA)

Before filing your complaint read the Guide to the Complaint Process. It has useful information on what matters can be subject to a PIPEDA complaint and what you can expect to happen. The Privacy Commissioners office suggests to try first to resolve your concerns directly with the organization associated with your complaint. Please read or download “A Guide for Individuals”.
You can also call toll-free at 1-800-282-1376. One of the information officers can answer any questions you may have about the complaints process. It was nice in our experience, talking to a person about this process, rather than an automated phone system.

If after reading the guide and you choose to file a privacy complaint against a private-sector organization, use one of these 3 options off of the Privacy Commissioners of Canada website :

  1. Fill out the online complaint form from the Privacy Commissioners website. (link is on top right)
  2. Fill out a complaint form electronically, print and mail or fax your complaint  : Download a PDF version
  3. Print a complaint form, fill out by hand and mail or fax your complaint : Download a RTF version

** Note: If you are filing out a complaint form on behalf of someone else, you will need written authorization from that person. Here is a link to the OPC Authorization form.

Instructions :If you use option 2 or 3, you send your completed form to:

Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada
112 Kent Street
Place de Ville, Tower B, 3rd Floor
Ottawa, ON K1A 1H3
Fax: 613-947-6850
Inquiries: 1-800-282-1376 (toll-free)

There is no charge for filing a complaint with the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and you do not need to hire any special advisors to help you with the process. It was, in our experience, a pretty straight forward process, even though the parties that filed complaints in our case did not agree with some of the findings. Not all matters have been settled by the Privacy Commissioner ,in our complaints filed against Landlord Legal.

The personal information you provide on this form is protected under the provisions of the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act.
** Be aware your name and the details of your complaint will be shared with the organization that is the subject of the complaint.

Tenant rights advocate warns the public and discusses tactics of the self proclaimed “terminator”, Catherine Stewart!

A tenant rights advocate had many dealings with the Landlord and Tenant Board, Civil courts, Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario,Privacy commissioner and the Law Society over past three years. The tenant rights advocate speaks up online of known tactics from paralegals and lawyers who deal in what is known as “SHARP PRACTICE” and frowned upon by the Law Society of Upper Canada.

Sharp practice is the term given to lawyers and paralegals when knowingly they break laws, court rules and procedures, lie and pretty much do or say anything they want claiming, it is defense of their clients, or themselves, even knowingly submitting false testimony and false evidence to their court hearings, which is against the law.

The Law Society of Upper Canada is well aware of the increase in allegations of lawyers and paralegal, known to use Sharp Practice tactics and unbecoming methods to defend clients, or allegations against them personally.
The LSUC has continually neglected to investigate these complaints of the involved paralegals or lawyers.There has been a drastic increase in the number of complaints filed with the Law Society of Upper Canada accusing many registered Law Society members of such sharp practice methods and illegal actions, unbecoming a paralegal.
The Law Society has been known to turn a blind eye to sharp practice allegations filed with them to investigate !

Ask yourself these questions as you read some of the tactics used at the bottom of this post !!

  1. How do paralegals and lawyers get away with this “Sharp Practice” tactics in our court system ?
  2. Why should paralegals and lawyers get away with this “Sharp Practice” tactics in our court system ?
  3. What cost of Canadian tax dollars is spent for the intentional tactics used by these lawyers and paralegals?
  4. What is the effect of the court system with back logs of honest cases to be heard but delayed.?
  5. Who protects the Canadian citizens who put their trust in the law and the courts to protect them ?
  6. Why does the Law Society turn a blind eye to the LSUC members who commit sharp practice?
  7. How far does sharp practice and breaking the rules and regulations go in our Canadian courts?
  8. How many vexatious cases are filed and delayed, from Sharp Practice paralegals & lawyers?
  9. How much police time is wasted on false complaints filed by sharp practice paralegals and lawyers?
  10. How much of Police budget is wasted for the paralegals who file false complaints against opposing party?
  11. How much stress is put on the opposing parties when dealing with sharp practice paralegals and lawyers?
  12. How much money is wasted by the opposing parties when dealing with the known legal scumbags?

This post deals specifically with the known practices and interaction with several paralegals, lawyers, ex OPP officer, Barrie landlords and a civil court judge of which the writer had involvement with from 2013 – 2016.

  • Toronto Lawyer David Strashin
  • Disgraced paralegal Diana Smith barred from practicing law in Ontario
  • LTB paralegal Howard Tavroges discloses confidential client information to Stewart after signing LTB Order
  • Walters Falls paralegal, Catherine April Stewart accused of Sharp Practice tactics
  • Barrie Civil Court Judge Kalwoski
  • Barrie landlords Dykstra Bros Electric (Ralph,William,Donald Dykstra)

Barrie Court House* * Barrie Civil Judge Kalwoski breaks rules of the Justice act as a fair and impartial judge when he hears cases involving the retrieval of a LTB Order, and other additional motions involving SCC#1851-13 & SCC#1852-13 where he calls Catherine Stewart to his chambers during ongoing proceedings without the other party being present. It is suspected Judge Kalwosky had put personal notes in the court files to influence the outcome of the future Superior Civil Court proceedings !!


Diane Smith Paralegal -Barrie** Diana Smith was found to be practicing law under different names when she was not legally licensed by the Law Society of Upper Canada to practice law in Ontario.Diane Smith sold her house and moved to Newmarket with her son to avoid future civil cases filed against her. She did not show for the allegations against her at LSUC hearings.

** Toronto lawyer David Strashin was aware of the false testimony, and false evidence allegations concerning his client, and friend paralegal, Catherine Stewart. Stewart had filed Human Rights evidence herself, well past the given date stated by the HRTO Registrar, Richard Hennessy for proceedings held in Toronto, Canada. (HRTO 16799-14 & HRTO#16250-13).

The late evidence was allowed into the proceedings as was David Strashin allowed to represent her, after Strashin and Stewart break HR rules of procedure, neglecting to properly notify the tribunal or the other party that he was her legal representative.

Evidence from the applicant was still delivered to the offices of Catherine Stewart, legal contact on file, when no evidence that Strashin was given that he was now the legal rep on file, as per the rules for contact information, to receive any evidence or documents pertaining to the hearings as far back as August of 2015.

The complete details of Toronto Human Rights lawyer, David Strashin, are discussed in the upcoming Human Rights conclusion postings.The new posts will bring up and disclose new facts discovered about Strashin after numerous emails were received and our investigation details of Strashin during the Human Rights hearings.

Catherine Stewart, her boyfriend Paul Smith and the Dykstra Bros used Toronto lawyer David Strashin, after claiming to the unfair mediator Mary Truemner, during the proceedings “I dont know this Human Rights stuff” and refused to proceed further until a 2 1/2 hour late Strashin finally showed for a scheduled hearing.

Dykstra Bros electric retired owner William dykstra

* William Dykstra (left) knowingly states lies on the stand for the Civil hearings he filed in attempts to shut down Privacy Violators website. William Dykstra had no knowledge of any business with the tenant business as his cowardly brother Ralph Dykstra was the only Dykstra brother to deal with the residential and commercial tenants.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAWilliam Dykstra states in Barrie Civil courtroom…he did it to “hurt the tenant”.

You can not trust a Dykstra to honor any deal they make,as proven with the LTB agreement he had Stewart sign on their behalf forcing litigation to retrieve the funds they owed the tenant.

Ralph Dykstra (right) did not appear on the stand for the civil but instead had William state lies. The transcripts from SCC#1852-13 will be published with his testimony discussed at full length.

The involvement of “Sharp Practice” goes deep into our court system involving Landlord and Tenant board hearings, Civil Court hearings and many Human Rights hearings here in Ontario, Canada.Sharp practice costs citizens thousands of dollars and many years of their life defending their legal cases only to lose to these legal scum bags. (my opinion)

Look up “Absolute Privilege” on the Canadian Legal Information Institute (CanLII) website here http://canlii.org/en/on/ and you will see what many lawyers and paralegals are doing and saying, regardless of the law or the rules of procedure for any court and you will see and understand why I am trying to warn the public and point out to the readers the methods used.

Many faithful readers are familiar with the Barrie landlords, Dykstra Bros Electric retired owners, Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra and Donald Dykstra, all from Barrie, Ontario and mentioned in many of the Landlord & Tenant board posts here on Privacy Violators website, as well as the Human rights allegations a tenant had filed.

  • LTB #30421-13 hearing – Found guilty of discussing private tenant details with other tenants
  • LTB #33911-13 hearing – break & enter/illegal lock change – NO SHOW
  • LTB #31816-13 Privacy invasion allegations – 100’s photos taken at tenants home prior to filing #32321-13
  • LTB #32321-13 – Attempted forced eviction after complaints filed against Dykstra Bros Electric slum lords
  • Civil #1546-13 – tenant files to retrieve money owed from LTB order Dykstra’s signed but neglected to honor
  • Civil #1852-13 – Civil hearing to shut down Privacy Violators website- * Filed in WRONG court to do so !
  • HRTO #16250-13 – Human Rights allegations filed against Ralph,Donald and William Dykstra

A privacy breach involves improper or unauthorized collection, use, disclosure, retention or disposal of personal information.

Many posts are listed here on Privacy Violators website concerning Catherine A Stewart and her ex OPP officer over Landlord and Tenant board hearings, vexatious Civil Court proceedings filed and Human rights allegations brought up against the pair.

The intentional court delays and refusal to pay court orders ends up costing the opposing parties a great deal of money and personal time to deal with her tactics.

Go to school for one year and buy your paralegal license today and fuck with the law !


Ex OPP officer worked as private investigator for many years, unsanctioned and illegally for Walters Falls paralegal !

oppAn ex Ontario Provincial Police officer, Paul Smith, has been investigated during Human Rights allegations (HRTO #17699-14) that were brought up against Smith, and his paralegal girlfriend, Catherine A Stewart, and has been discovered to be working as a private investigator illegally for landlord legal inc, of Barrie Ontario for many years.

Although Paul Smith did indeed have a private investigators license for over 7 years, Smith was not sanctioned by any private investigator company to work legally as a private investigator, but continued to give signed statements mentioning his PI reports and PI status, as well as being a retired Ontario Provincial Police officer, in sworn statements given to, and signed by his paralegal girlfriend who has a commissioner stamp to do so. One lies and the other swears to it.. very convenient for paralegal, property manager Catherine Stewart when she signs the legal documents to defend her LANDLORD ONLY clients.

Smith would give false evidence, false testimony, and stated whatever, property manager and paralegal girlfriend, Catherine Stewart needed to be sworn and she would protect him from liable suits, Human Rights allegations and criminal actions brought up against him, stating “absolute privilege” while she acts as his paralegal protecting these lies they swear to. Barrie Police officer Det Steeles, refused to investigate the false evidence allegations brought up to him concerning Smith.

Paul Smith was further accused with Catherine Stewart of entering false evidence, which Smith had signed and gave to Stewart for evidence into HRTO #17699-14, which both parties were named in Human Rights application.

Ex OPP officer Smith, was also involved in breaking many more Rules and Procedures for Stewart, in the Human Rights (HRTO#17699-14) allegations brought against Smith and Catherine Stewart when he contacted and delivered legal documents to the Human Rights applicant at an address NOT ON FILE when the applicant had legal council representing him.

The illegal personal contact by ex OPP officer Paul Smith, is against any Court Hearing Rules, as well as the Human Rights rules when legally represented, alarmed the HR applicant and made him afraid of what the pair would do when, consistently and knowingly they both were brazenly breaking laws and rules for their HR allegations against them. Paul Smith has admitted working as a PI and process server for his paralegal girlfriend for over ten years and should know the laws and rules and regulations governing process serving.

The pair have gotten away with tactics like this for a long time and Barrie police office Steele received complaints Barrie policefrom the Human Rights applicant, of these tactics and actions but did not investigate nor act on the complaints. It seems like the Barrie police service also works for Catherine Stewart as well, when they do not investigate legitimate complaints filed against the paralegal for break and enter, entering false evidence and harassment allegations or the ex Ontario Provincial Police officer involved !! We can only assume the Barrie Police and the OPP protect their own when they do not investigate these complaints !!

Human-Rights-DignityHuman Rights Registrar, Richard Hennessy of the Human Rights Tribunal was well aware of the allegations and many more motions brought up by the applicant in HRTO#16799-14, but the mediator, Mary Truemner did not hear any of the motions brought forward, instead this unfair mediator swept it under the rug and refused to hear them !

Further posts concerning the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, Registrar, Richard Henessey and mediator  Mary Truemner will also be published shortly so the public can learn the Human Rights Tribunal knows the manipulation that goes on during HRTO hearings by lawyers and paralegals and does nothing to stop it.The Human Rights Tribunal in Toronto is a mockery of the justice system and will be discussed in full in further posts to come.

An article detailing “absolute privilege” and the abuse that goes on when paralegals knowingly break the law and rules of procedure during court hearings and get away with it is in the works and will be published soon.

After a long investigation, and many emails received, the stuff that paralegal Catherine Stewart has done in the past, and has gotten away with it, even when the Law Society is aware of the allegations is staggering and the public needs to be aware of the tactics used by a few of these known paralegals, who go to a college training school for one year and bought their licenses and have nothing to lose.

Paul-Smith-home-inspector-card-he-gives-120x80Paul Smith and Catherine Stewart were accused of violating a tenants privacy when Paul Smith, on Stewart’s orders, entered the tenants unit owned by Dykstra Bros Electric of Barrie, Ontario and proceeded to take photos of every inch of the unit in preparations to evict him. The Landlord and Tenant Board rules do not allow one party to have an advantage over another when preparing for an eviction or an LTB  hearing, which makes the photos ineligible to be entered into evidence as LTB Judge Sean Henry states in the May 7th, 2013 transcripts to be published in a future post.

Paralegal and property manager, Catherine Stewart has been accused in the past of breaking into a tenant’s home while Barrie police officers, CST Turner and CST Melanie Beard stood by and watched. The Barrie police officers would not charge Catherine Stewart, Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra or Donald Dykstra with break and enter although they witnessed it first hand, stating it was a landlord and tenant board matter. Catherine Stewart has been known to give confidential court information to the Barrie police, in the form of a private cell number that was given for court purposes only.

The tenant involved did file a LTB complaint (LTB #33911-13), stating paralegal Catherine Stewart and her landlord clients ordered Barrie’s Central Lock and Key owner, Paul Robertson to cut a security chain, pick the lock and enter 40 Ellen Street, Barrie Ontario while the Barrie police watched. Barrie Police Constable Melanie Beard was summoned and present for the LTB hearing, as were the locksmiths involved, for the break and enter allegations, but Catherine Stewart neglected to show for the allegations against her, stating she “was out of the country” when witnesses to the contrary were available.

Ex OPP officer, Paul Smith and Catherine Stewart, both of Walters Falls, Ontario have been known in the past to use Smiths’ ex OPP status and his illegal private investigator license to influence the Landlord and Tenant Board hearings that paralegal, Catherine Stewart, takes on defending Landlords only.Smith was also involved in Privacy Commissioner complaints against Stewart where he gave statements claiming he was a licensed PI working for Smith when he entered and took 100’s of photos of a tenants unit prior to Stewart preparing for a forced eviction hearing.

Catherine-StewartParalegal Catherine Stewart is known online, to be the “self proclaimed” terminator and has gone as far as threatening the applicant of the Human Rights application. publicly on her property management website which can be viewed here at, http://www.landlordlegal.ca.

The paralegal / property manager hides behind online applications on her website to screen clients and has signs posted on a door at her little cubicle office located at 117 Bayfield Street stating No Tenants allowed but she is a property manager. Figure that one out, a property manager that wants no contact with the tenants on behalf of her landlord clients.. that says a lot of her intentions and tactics !!

There have been many posts alleging the privacy violations done, false evidence submitted, false testimony submitted, and the many laws, and rules and regulations that Catherine Stewart has been known to commit while manipulating rules and hiding behind her landlord only advocate role.

This Tenant ONLY rights advocate will continue to warn the public and file Law Society complaints against this paralegal for her conflict of interest while working as both a paralegal and property manager and bring the truth behind her break ins, false evidence and manipulation Stewart and her Toronto lawyer and friend David Strashin allows for Stewart’s Human Rights hearing and her landlord only clients.More complaints are to be filed with the Law Society concerning Catherine A Stewart aka Barrie property manager April Stewart.

Any tenant who goes against Catherine Stewart in LTB, should be aware that Catherine April Stewart is not legally allowed to represent landlords in LTB hearings as both a paralegal and a property manager and should make the Judge at the LTB hearing aware of the conflict of interest she is in when she does not fit the definition of a “Landlord” but references herself as a “Landlord representative” in any court documents and signs them as April Stewart, which is not her legal name !!

The upcoming series we have titled the “Stewart Solution” will give other tenant’s ideas and alternatives when dealing with landlord problems and the manipulation of the self proclaimed “terminator” which is known in our court system, costly for the tenants wastes police services time and money, and the courts time, which could be dealing with real paralegals interested in furthering justice, not manipulating it and hiding behind this false title and status.

Howard Tavroges, accused of giving client privileged information to Catherine Stewart of Landlord legal,Barrie.Howard Tavroges is another paralegal accused of giving confidential client information to Catherine Stewart during the Civil court hearings and Human rights allegations.

Howard Tavroges is known to work at the Barrie Landlord and Tenant Board representing on behalf of C A Stewart or April Stewart as she commonly flips back and forth on the names, and her business roles, on many occasions.

Barrie’s Royal Lepage Reality fails to disclose marijuana grow houses to buyers

Royal Lepage Reality of Barrie, Ontario has been discovered to have not been revealing that property and houses

Marijuana Gro Ops not reported
24 Victoria Street-Barrie – Had Marijuana grow op

owned by Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra and Donald Dykstra located at 24 Victoria Street and 40 Ellen Street Barrie Ontario were used for marijuana grow ops as paralegal Catherine Stewart states in her Barrie Civil Court claim against an ex tenant with a medical marijuana growing license issued from Health Canada.

February 2011 seen a drug raid by the Barrie City Drug Enforcement at 24 Victoria Street which seized over 100 marijuana plants and had arrested the tenant, Manny Portelli for illegally growing marijuana. The damage to the house was extensive as well as the marijuana smell, black mold and other damages.

Page 7 of the FOI is Landlord Legal false statements to the Barrie police concerning the tenant legally allowed to grow medical marijuana and approved by Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra and Donald Dykstra of the former company Dykstra Bros Electric (now Gerard Dykstra Electric of Barrie, Ontario) after ex OPP officer, Paul Smith, enters the unit and photographs every inch in preparation for an eviction. This is against the Rules of the Landlord tenant Board as is a paralegal acting as a property manager representing the Dykstra’s in Barrie LTB. (Discussed in future posts in detail)

There was no professional clean up done to 24 Victoria Street but the three Dykstra owners, Ralph Dykstra, Bill Dykstra and Donald Dykstra chose to cover this up when they put the property on the market soon after the drug raid.

neighbors-friend-yelling-obscenitiesJuly 2014 seen a tenant evicted from 40 Ellen Street, Barrie, Ontario, when Walters Falls paralegal disguised as a Barrie property manager, Catherine A Stewart used her ex OPP boyfriend, Paul Smith, also of Walters Falls to enter the unit and photograph every inch with all the appliance serial numbers and tenants personal items and property in preparation to evict him.

Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal inc. files a civil claim against the legal marijuana grower living at 40 Ellen Street for nearly 5 years and mentions her having to file the units with the MARIJUANA GRO OP REGISTRY in her statements in the Dykstra’s Civil Cases but fails to have the two houses listed as a potential Health risk in the GRO OP REGISTRY with warnings to future buyers of the Dykstra Bros 24 Victoria Street and 40 Ellen Street properties.

Ralph Dykstra of Dykstra Bros ElectricThe Dykstra’s had originally given written authorization to the tenant to allow the marijuana grow op but after another tenant, Nancy Groves, got involved, Human rights allegations were filed against the 3 Dykstra brothers and the paralegal / Property manager, Catherine April Stewart along with her boyfriend and ex OPP officer Paul Smith. The tenant was allowed to grow upwards of 60 medical marijuana plants with a license issued from Health Canada before the program was shut down by Health Canada and Constitutionally challenged in the Supreme Court.

Catherine Stewart filed a Civil claim for $25,000 for damages against the ex tenant after she evicted the legal medical marijuana tenant for her clients Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra and Donald Dykstra of Dykstra Brother Electric of Barrie Ontario.

Catherine-StewartCatherine April Stewart is also known to file vexatious claims against Privacy Violators but failed to appear many times, dragged it on for 2 1/2 years in the wrong court and stated she was going to take her issue to Supreme Court, but neglected to do so.

The Barrie Civil Court ignored the Speedy Trial request which was upheld in one motion but ignored and proceeded for 2 1/2 wasted years without a single trial but many motions against her methods used during the course of her wasting the Civil courts time.

Barrie Court HouseThe Civil Court has no jurisdiction to shut this website down or make any demand for any posts to be removed without a proper court order.Barrie’s Civil Judge Kalwosky takes the paralegal, Catherine Stewart to his chambers during court proceedings, but neglects to have the opposing parties attend the meeting. It is further alleged Judge Kalwosky had made notes in the courts files against the tenant after he had discussed matters in his chambers violating the rules in the Justices Act for presiding judges. Another corrupt man in the Barrie Civil court system in our opinion !! We are still searching for a photo of Judge Kalwosky to post online with the allegations but will posts his ruling from the motions brought forward from the tenant.

If Catherine Stewart wants any article on Privacy-Violators.com modified, she did not contact us to do so or file her claim in the Supreme Court since August 2014.

The Speedy Trial requested of the Barrie Civil courts should have ended the paralegals attempts at wasting valuable courts time for her and her ex OPP boyfriends, Paul Smiths own interests.The corrupt Barrie court system allowed this paralegal to waste many valuable hours of courts time which would have better served with real cases before the courts.

The son, Gerard Dykstra, of 94 Cardinal Street, Barrie, was one of the Dykstra’s that was using the long established  Dykstra Bros Electric company name but soon changed his company name to Gerard Dykstra, Licensed Electrician after the Human Rights allegations were filed against the three older Dykstra’s including his father.

You can read all the civil court claims, fail to appears, false evidence allegations and false testimony allegations signed by the paralegal and the Dykstra’s throughout the 3 year court ordeal that followed all the way to the Human Rights Tribunal heard by HRTO paid member Mary Truemner.

Write your letters to Barrie Royal Lepage, showing your disgust and the distrust of the Barrie, Ontario Reality firm for not disclosing the marijuana gro op properties and associated mold and health risks at 24 Victoria Street and 40 Ellen Street, Barrie Ontario, owned by the Barrie Dykstra Brothers, Ralph, Donald and William Dykstra to their perspective buyers.

Marijuana Gro Ops not reported

Catherine Stewart is a self proclaimed “Landlord Rights only” and calls herself the “Terminator”.

Follow our upcoming posts that discuss the LTB Rules, the Law Society Rules and we have recently started and named the “Stewart Solution” to better educate the public on the willingness of a one year CTI paralegal graduate to break the laws and court procedures and rules to further their own interests in the name of Landlord Only Rights !

How do you claim to defend landlords rights when you violate other peoples rights, especially tenants.

This new “Tenant Rights” advocate has just begun to discuss the injustice in our system and the Law Society of Upper Canada ignorance of the peoples rights when they need to be protected from people like this.
