Meaford Ontario Provincial Police harass citizens for ex OPP officer and phony private investigator

It has come to Privacy Violators website attention, through numerous emails, that a yet unnamed Ontario Police Officer from Meaford has harassed several Canadian citizens instead of investigating known complaints of an ex OPP officer, Paul Smith practicing as a private investigator for several years, while un sanctioned to do so in Ontario.

Ex OPP officer Paul Smith has been known to operate as a process server, a witness and an illegal private investigator for owner and wife, Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal, Barrie, Ontario and is being protected by fellow OPP officers in Meaford, Ontario.

Paul Smith business card from Landlord Legal, Barrie.Paul Smith, along with his paralegal wife, Catherine Stewart have been known to work together in a fake property management firm in Meaford and Barrie, Ontario to evict tenants for their landlord only clients.

Paul Smith has been known to state in courts documents, that he has had a private investigator license for over 6 years but he was not sanctioned by any registered and legal company to operate in this capacity in Ontario Canada.

Smith has been known to give statements in landlord and Tenant board, Civil Court, Human Rights tribunal and to the Privacy commissioner of Canada, which were signed by his paralegal wife stating he was a private investigator working for his wife, Catherine Stewart’s paralegal firm landlordlegal inc. Stewart has been known to use her commissioner stamp to sign documents she submits from Paul Smith to further her landlord only clients cases she acquires through her phony property management company she runs to manipulate the LTB board when she represents land lords ONLY under the name April Stewart which is not the name on file at the Law Society of Upper Canada to practice law in Ontario.

Stewart’s landlord only fake property management company does NOT ALLOW tenants to contact her PM office for any reason, even emergencies. For tenant related emergencies she recommends the tenant email her office which is located in a small cubicle office at 117 Bayfield Street, Barrie, Ontario.Stewart is also known to openly harass and threaten a Human Rights applicant when he named Catherine Stewart and Paul Smith in Humamn Rights allegations (HRTO

Stewart is known to use the fake private investigator status of Paul Smith to enter tenants units and photograph their units illegally against the LTB Act 2006 and the Canadian Constitution which is suppose to guarantee privacy and harassment protection.

Landlord-Legal-website-pageThe yet unknown investigating Meaford OPP officer has been well aware of the alleged ex Ontario Provincial Police officer practicing as a illegal private investigator for some time but has neglected to investigate the ex officers false statements, false evidence submissions and illegal practice. The Meaford OPP have been well known for protecting ex police officers in the past and this seems to be a common practice for any law enforcement officers investigating Paul Smith and his paralegal wife, Catherine Stewart.

New complaints are pending and have been filed again against this Ontario paralegal, Catherine Stewart, with the LSUC for practicing law under several names that are not registered with the Law Society with numerous harassment claims, as well as procedural complaints with Stewart.

Paul Smith ignores court summonsStewart is also alleged to have submitted false statements and false evidence she signed and submitted that had come from Paul Smith, her husband while directly named in Civil Court and Human Rights allegations against the pair.

Ex OPP officer Paul Smith has been alleged to have entered false evidence for his wife Catherine Stewart several times to help her evict tenants for her clients.

We will update these Meaford OPP officers names in future posts concerning this ex OPP officer, Paul Smith and his paralegal wife who continue to work illegally harassing Ontario tenants and Human Rights applicants.

The Meaford Ontario Provincial Police officers, are well aware that paralegal Stewart is alleged to be known to be present during a break and enter allegation at 40 Ellen Street, Barrie Ontario, and that Stewart continually harasses and threatens tenants, and Human Rights applicants who file complaints, on her public website located here http://www.landlordlegal.ca.

Send us your emails concerning any known instances of the Meaford OPP protecting their own officers and failing to investigate them when it comes to ex police officers breaking the laws in Ontario.

Law Society paralegal Catherine Stewart is well known to sign her name as April Stewart in court and then refuses to honor agreements she makes.

Catherine Stewart is also known not to pay court orders against her for not showing in court and failing to notify the other parties involved against her.

Catherine Stewart is also alleged to have lied in LTB court in 2013 when she claimed to be out of the country when break and enter allegations were brought up against her in LTB hearings, the LSUC has yet to investigate the 10 to 15 complaints filed against Stewart with the Law Society.

Federal Court ruled medical marijuana growers can continue to grow past March 31st 2014 deadline

Medical MarihuanaThe Conservative government’s plan to halt the growing of medical marijuana for personal use on March 31st 2014 and forcing patients to purchase their medical weed from Health Canada’s commercial growers had a setback Friday March 21st when a federal judge issued an injunction exempting anyone currently licensed to grow to continue past the deadline.

Judge Michael Manson issued an injunction exempting patients who are licensed to possess or grow medical marijuana under the current rules, either for themselves or for someone else, from new regulations that would have made the practice illegal.

A group of medical marihuana patients are represented by John Conroy,a BC lawyer behind a constitutional challenge and have asked for an injunction to preserve the status quo until their legal case goes to trial.

Under the terms of the injunction,patients who were licensed to grow marihuana as of September 30 2013 may continue to grow past the deadline that Health Canada had stated. Participants in the program are restricted to possessing 150 grams of dried marihuana which is the limit set by the new regulations the decision says. Health Canada had warned that any patients licensed to grow pot who didn’t confirm they had destroyed their plants would be reported to the police.

health-canada-MMAR-letterHealth Canada had sent out letters last year to Medical Marihuana Access Program (MMAP) participants announcing the new proposed changes to the Medical Marihuana Access Regulations (MMAR) and inviting medical marihuana growers to apply for a commercial license.

Health Canada had also sent out letters with identifying information pertaining to the participants in the MMAP and their association with the Health Canada Medical Access Program and had sent the contact letters through regular mail services instead of private services that were always used for contact prior to the privacy breach. This is the third time Health Canada has allegedly violated Federal Privacy Laws.
Read the Privacy Violators blog post here  and be sure to follow the class action suite filed against Health Canada with us here.

A trial on the constitutional argument has not been scheduled, though it is expected to take place within nine to twelve months.

A mediation date is set for March 2014 in superior court, but from past experiences dealing with Landlord Legal & the Dykstra’s in  Landlord and Tenant Board with the already BAD MEDIATION attempt, we want this to go to into the courtroom to get final resolution on these matters. We post the original documents given to us to support the post that is written for the Privacy Violators website. It is our right to inform and update the public on pending court matters and decisions that are of interest to our visitors.

The Dykstra brothers properties have been in the Barrie news several times in the past for a drug bust at 24 Victoria Street, Barrie, Ontario when Manny P was raided by the Barrie Drug and Enforcement unit and arrested for having an illegal grow operation with approximately 80 plants in May 2011. Many police calls,approximately 8 reported calls, since 2011 have been called to the 24 Victoria Street residence for various reasons.

The Dykstra’s brothers property at 40 Ellen Street, Barrie Ontario hit the front page in the Barrie Advance, a local newspaper,a few years back with clothes hanging from every available spot on the outside of the residence. I guess the resident at the time, Kara did not realize that Barrie has a clothes line by law which she did not adhere to causing complaints about the 80 year old house she rented looking like a slum shack and having local residents to complain to the city of Barrie about the matter.

Other Dykstra brothers property have also been in the news.. we update as we find more news

The complaints were filed on June 8th 2013, from a Barrie tenant alleging Diane Smith had harassed him by sending a letter representing herself as a legal “lawyer” and representative for Nancy Groves,when she was not legal to do so.

Diane Smith did not respond to any correspondence from the Upper Law Society of Canada nor did she appear at the administrative hearing set for her December 13th, 2013.

We will continue to follow all the court cases involved with Dykstra/Groves/Paul Smith/Catherine April Stewart that started as guilty of  PRIVACY VIOLATIONS in Landlord and Tenant Board tribunal court, May 7th 2013 in Barrie, Ontario.

 

These privacy violations and actions from the Dykstras, March 26th 2013 along with the LTB court verdict from May 7th 2013, escalated into further alleged complaints concerning an illegal lock change at 40 Ellen Street, Barrie,Ontario, orchestrated by April Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal,Ralph Dykstra,Bill Dykstra and Don Dykstra of Dykstra Bros Electric to a purposely BAD MEDIATED LTB AGREEMENT to get the tenant out, an Ontario Human Rights pending court case and three (3) civil cases pending that will all be followed and  presented here on the Privacy Violators.com website.

You can read further details of the Civil cases that have been filed in our next post. Photos and documents to be uploaded soon for you to review.

One thing is for sure !!

We have learned from past experiences, that certain paralegals do deal in BAD FAITH DEALS purposely, just to get tenants out, to please their client, the landlord.. that is the private paralegals objective… anyway at all – legally or illegally.. they feel they are protected because they are paralegals.

Catherine-Stewart  Read the new upcoming posts on details of  “What Do Private Paralegals Get Away With ?”.

Miss Groves,an involved tenant, was also represented by the same Meaford paralegal, April Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal, in the court ordered appearance for Miss Groves to produce documents to the court to prove her rent was paid directly to the landlords from other sources.Dykstra Bros Electric received Nancy Groves rent payments,in part, from the Mental Health Association and also in part from Ontario Disability and paid directly to the Barrie landlords.

 

Nancy Groves-involved neighbor
Nancy Groves-involved neighbor is represented by paralegals, Diane  Lynn Smith & April Catherine Stewart

 

April Catherine Stewart did not have the documents that were requested of Nancy Groves by the courts on the ordered date to appear, though sufficient time was given, Landlord Legal instead decided to waste the time of the Barrie courts, Simcoe Legal Services and the Barrie tenant filing the case against Dykstra Bros for the FALSELY MEDIATED agreement and the money they owe.

April Stewart had also wasted the Barrie Landlord & Tenant tribunal courts time as well as the time of 3 witnesses that were summoned against her clients the Dykstras for the alleged illegal lock change at 40 Ellen Street. April Stewart is currently being investigated by the Upper Law Society of Canada for her participation in this alleged matter.

Stewart had also neglected to properly inform the involved Barrie tenant, although she had phone number, email address and Simcoe Legal Service contacts to contact easily, or the LTB courts that she was allegedly out of the country and was unable to attend. The tenant withdrew the matter to deal with it in the Ontario Human Rights court in Toronto.

** The papers supporting Groves claim were finally mailed to the Simcoe Legal Services paralegal helping with the civil case against the Dykstras and forwarded the appropriate documents to the tenant.

One of the Dykstra brothers, Bill Dykstra will be summoned to Superior Court to answer for their financial status and the reasons the LTB order and Civil court orders were not followed.

Please contact the Upper Law Society of Canada, if you have had dealings with Diane Smith this year or have had bad experience with Landlord Legal to report.

We will continue to update the past posts, photos and documents that have been slightly delayed because of minor pending matters very shortly.

57 Charges laid in 8 Year Identity Theft Case


Another example post to emphasize to you how important it is to safeguard your personal information everyday and everywhere.

Identity-Theft

The Ontario Provincial Police have charged a person they believed had taken  the identity of Brian Perrault of Toronto, eight years past.

Perrault, a gentleman from Toronto Ontario,not knowing however realized that his identity actually had been taken.. however attempting to repair the damage that wasn’t a straightforward or easy task.

In fact, it didn’t finish for Brian til the OPP pulled over a tow truck, January 27th, 2012 on route Highway 400 north of Toronto for having no tail lights.

The OPP Chief Supt. Don Bell said the driver of the tow truck provided a false name to the police however another officer arrived and recognized the driver as a wanted man. he was arrested.

This started a twenty month investigation by the OPP that went back as so much as 2005.

Robert Shawn Maitland, 47, of Midland, Ont., was arrested and charged with 57 offenses together with fraud, possession of stolen property, identity theft and breach of recognizance. He is in custody pending a court appearance in Newmarket, Ontario on Thursday Nov 14th 2013.

Cybercrime is one amongst our biggest problems, OPP Insp. Greg Walton said, adding education is key to protecting yourself from identity theft.

The reason I picked up on this identity theft case, is to show that identity theft is happening a lot more frequently, and it is not always for financial gains.

There are many ways to obtain personal information, and plenty of ways in which it is used. There are a lot of reasons why somebody may need or want to assume another persons identity over their own.

The problems throughout the eight year length that Brian had his identity taken first started once he began receiving traffic tickets from places he had never been.

Perrault’s drivers license was eventually suspended, leaving him unable to drive, leaving him unable to keep up employment for a while. The collection agencies started calling after he struggled to find work without being able to drive.

The most frightening ordeal occurred late in 2011 as he was driving to his grandmother’s funeral.

Brian said he was pulled over by an OPP officer who demanded he shut off his engine and turn over his keys.

Soon after, more police officers had arrived. “It was terrifying,” he said.

Police say a man using Brian Perrault’s identity was wanted on warrants for crimes and traffic violations in Ontario and Alberta.

Fortunately, another police officer at the scene recognized the forementioned wasn’t the wanted man.

“But by the time I was allowed to go, my grandmother’s funeral was over,” Perrault said.

A few months later the police arrested and charged a person with the identity theft allegations.

 

You can read additional information about Brian Perraults ordeal and follow this identity theft case from Sun News website here from November 12th, 2013:

http://www.sunnewsnetwork.ca/sunnews/canada/archives/2013/11/20131112-163653.html

 

Identity theft is a real problem

Protecting your personal information is even more important today with technology advances,credit card scanners and the wide use of the internet.

Social networks like facebook and twitter are becoming huge problems for persons posting personal information to their online profiles and later regretting that action.

Remember that it is your choice to post the information but please think of the after effects that it cause you later in life.

Other future posts are in the works discussing credit card scanners and the most recent technology used by professional identity thieves.

For now all we can suggest is to educate yourself, protect yourself and your personal information.
