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
Please follow the upcoming Human Rights articles soon to be released to learn the truth about our court system in Ontario.It really is a friggin joke.
Corrupt Barrie Police fail to investigate ex OPP officer Paul Smith for impersonating as Private Investigator and violating tenant Constitutional Rights to privacy !
When the public and especially tenants in general have issues with violations to their privacy, break and enters and the methods used by their landlords and illegal practices from paralegals such as Catherine Stewart of Walter’s Falls & Barrie Ontario, where do they go for protection ?
Normally ANY citizen of Canada or a tenant would call the police for help, file a complaint at the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) or possibly file their allegations with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (HRTO) or exercise all three possibilities according to their rights.
Many complaints of paralegal Catherine Stewart’s illegal practices, of break and enter, illegal searches, constant harassment of a HRTO applicant, entering false testimony, entering false evidence have all gone to the Barrie police to investigate from a tenant who had filed many complaints and allegations against Catherine Stewart and alleged retired and decorated ex OPP officer and boyfriend Paul Smith.
The corrupt Barrie police force has failed to act on many allegations filed against the ex cop and his girlfriend paralegal without a single officer investigating any of the complaints. There is no protection for the HRTO applicant or ANY investigation done by the corrupt Barrie police force when dealing with one of their own and this alleged ex OPP officer.
Complaints to the OPP Commissioner have gone un answered as to the alleged possible corruption when Paul Smith was supposedly an Ontario Provincial Police officer.
If Paul Smith willingly and knowing constantly violates the Landlord and Tenant Act, privacy rights and our Constitutional Rights as Canadians for his paralegal girlfriend, what illegal actions did he do when he was with the Ontario Provincial Police?
- Barrie police officers Melanie Beard and T Turner witnessed Catherine Stewart break into 40 Ellen Street, Barrie, Ontario
- Barrie police Detective Steeles ignored complaints of impersonating a PI, false evidence and false evidence submitted by Paul Smith to courts
- Barrie police Detective Steeles also harassed a Human rights applicant over false reports from paralegal Stewart and ex OPP boyfriend
- Barrie police did nothing to stop or investigate the B & E complaint the tenant tried to file
- Barrie police failed to investigate the paralegals gestapo style illegal property management tactics
- Barrie police failed to investigate paralegal Catherine Stewart violating tenant Constitutional Rights !!
- Barrie police failed to investigate the illegal practices of Paul Smith violating TENANT PRIVACY under the LTB Act !!
- Barrie police failed to investigate the illegal practices of Stewart as a paralegal violating TENANT PRIVACY RIGHTS !!
- Barrie police called the HRTO several times from a cell number that was ONLY ON FILE for HRTO matters against C A Stewart and Paul Smith
- Paralegal Stewart gave the Barrie Police the applicants confidential cell number that was to be used for HRTO court matters only
- The Barrie police & the OPP failed to investigate harassment allegations brought to them concerning Stewart and the ex OPP officer
- Barrie police and the OPP failed to investigate complaints of the false testimony entered from Stewart’s ex cop boyfriend numerous times
- Barrie police failed to investigate complaints of false evidence entered into civil matters and the HRTO allegations against the pair
- Barrie police failed to investigate or STOP THE CONSTANT HARASSMENT form C A Stewart and ex OPP officer Paul Smith
- Barrie police failed to investigate Paul Smith from personally contacting applicant, serving documents or harassing the HRTO applicant
Police chief Kimberly Greenwood, of the Barrie city police, Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Vince Hawkes, Human Rights Commissioner Renu Mandhane along with the Canadian Law Society have all failed to protect many rights given to Canadian citizens and continue to ignore and put under the rug, any legitimate complaints brought forth by Canadian citizens against this alleged ex Ontario provincial police officer !!
A quote is stated below from Detective Steeles when he threatened to put out a warrant on a Human Rights applicant over allegations the ex tenant was appearing at the open forum at the Barrie LTB board where Catherine Stewart was defending a landlord illegally according to the LTB Act 2006 ! Stewart complained to the Barrie police the ex tenant was attending the LTB hearings in Barrie which is his right to do so ANYTIME he wants to as it is a PUBLIC and OPEN hearing.The Barrie police had NO REASON to harass the ex tenant and Human Rights applicant for attending LTB hearings. Detective Steele also ignored the false evidence claims and the false testimony claims when the applicant tried to have Catherine Stewart and her ex cop boyfriend charged with the offenses.The FOI with Turner, Beards and Steeles police reports will be posted for the public to view.
Detective Steele did not do ANY INVESTIGATION into the allegations made concerning the harassment, false evidence and false statement claims brought up against Smith & Stewart but did threaten to have a warrant issued for the applicant for attending LTB hearing. WOW Barrie police justice is far between and completely corrupt !!
Barrie police Detective Steeles quote to a Human Rights applicant ;
It is a HICCUP of the law
The Freedom of Information act allowed the harassed citizen to retrieve copies of police reports filed by Beard, Turner and Steeles along with other Barrie police officers who allegedly harassed the human Rights applicant and his friends when trying to find false allegations to press charges against the applicant to further help the ex OPP officer and ignore the legitimate complaints filed with them concerning severe harassment and breaches of court conduct when in legal and court issues involving Catherine Stewart and Paul Smith personally.
We will be posting every Freedom Of Information report that has been obtained from every police force involved and every pertinent file from the Human Rights Tribunal to expose the truth about Catherine Stewart, Paul Smith, our legal system and the police protection that we are suppose to have as citizens in Canada.
Entering FALSE EVIDENCE and SUBMITTING FALSE TESTIMONY is a CRIMINAL offense as is BREAK & ENTER and HARASSMENT in Canada unless the Barrie police and the OPP protect the guilty parties involved and cover up the allegations concerning these people.The Barrie police DO NOT PROTECT THE PUBLIC but only cover up and ignore complaints that are filed with them and then contact the alleged parties to inform them of the complaints that were attempted to be filed so they can fix their problems.
Catherine Stewart and ex OPP officer Paul Smith committed illegal acts when they pretend to be a Private Investigator, enter false evidence and false testimony to protect their own asses of the Human Rights allegations that were filed against them for violating a tenants god given rights that are suppose to be protected by the Human Rights Commission.
Paul Smith is known to make false statements and Catherine Stewart his paralegal girlfriend puts her commissioner stamp on it to make the lies official and the way she needs it to evict defenseless tenants all the while NOT LEGAL to represent landlords in Landlord and Tenant board hearings as she does not fit the definition of a “landlord”. Stewart is known to use the phrase “Landlord Representative” in LTB and sign the illegal name APRIL STEWART instead of her given name and legal name stated with the LSUC which is CATHERINE STEWART !! BEWARE OF THE FRAUD TACTICS IN LTB. Stewart is also known NOT TO GIVE DISCLOSURE for LTB hearings, do not allow this injustice to continue with this scum who is a self proclaimed “terminator” . Tenants have rights that are constantly violated by this property manager who is a paralegal illegally acting on behalf of LANDLORDS ONLY in LTB matters. Bring this non disclosure and fraud tactics up to the LTB judge hearing your case and file your complaint with the LSUC and then contact us to follow your story publicly.
New complaints have been filed with the Law Society concerning Catherine Stewart tampering with Civil court documents and entering false evidence and false testimony into the Human Rights allegations she was accused of. Past complaints filed against Stewart were ignored when David Cass, intake worker for the LSUC dismissed complaints when Stewart lied about ongoing court cases when there was none presently before the courts at that time. Stewart had submitted no evidence to David Cass when he dismissed the complaints blindly.
We have received several emails about complaints to the LSUC filed against paralegals and lawyers mentioned in several of our public interest stories, and David Cass has been at the center of a couple of the complaints and dismissed them as well without proof or justifications for his actions. The complaints that we know for sure that have been filed have not showed on the paralegals public record at all after David Cass puts them under the rug and fails to protect the public.
The LSUC is more concerned that paralegals pay their yearly fees to them than they are in protecting the public from paralegals who openly and knowingly break the law and the Rules of Conduct set out by the LSUC. We will be writing further about the complaints filed and the LSUC Rules and Regulations that are suppose to be in place so the public can see the real truth about our legal system. The truth will scare you more than you think if you think we live in a FREE Canada.
David Cass is protecting Lawyers and Paralegals from complaints that are legitimately filed against paralegals and Lawyers without justifying his reasons or the persons providing proof of their claims they make to protect themselves. The Law Society itself is a self run body that only protects lawyers and paralegals from the complaints that are shoved aside without proof or justification and never heard.
Privacy Violators has evidence of at least 4 other complaints filed with the LSUC against Stewart but there is no records of ANY complaints being filed including Break & Enter complaints filed in 2013 from a Barrie tenant. The Law Society intake process is as crooked as the cops when they do not protect the public from the Hard Practices of paralegals who knowingly break the laws for their clients. This leaves only one option for tenants when coming across these low life paralegals and that is to defend yourself to the max because the system is rigged against you.
We will be publishing options you can choose to use when dealing with Catherine Stewart who knowingly breaks the law in front of the Barrie police and got away with it until the new complaints are heard and the results published here on Privacy Violators website for the public to learn of the corrupt system. We actually live in a communist Canada when a one year graduate becomes a paralegal and can knowingly break laws and get away with it.
Your privacy and your live is exposed when dealing with SCUM (in our opinion) like Catherine Stewart and Paul Smith !!
Read the new series we have for you entitled “THE STEWART SOLUTION”
The Barrie police are as corrupt as they come and do not have any interest in investigating an ex Ontario Police officer which has never been confirmed. This ex OPP officer claimed to be a decorated officer but no records were ever found that he was ever in the OPP or a decorated officer and the statements they put into court were never backed with any documentation to prove there claims about Paul Smith.
Tenants rights, Human Rights applicants, Landlord & Tenant Board applicants and many Canadian citizens who have filed complaints against this paralegal and her ex cop boyfriend, who to this day still operate the illegal property management firm, with the protection of the police and with only one purpose and intention, TO EVICT THE TENANT FOR THEIR LANDLORD CLIENTS !!
THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE !!
The truth is paralegals like Catherine Stewart, who act as a paralegal for Landlords only, and operate illegal property manager businesses with her ex OPP boyfriend Paul Smith, have NO RIGHTS to privacy and lose all their rights when it comes to the corrupt court system in Ontario, Canada.Stewart constantly uses her boyfriends ex OPP status when dealing with the police making them reluctant to investigate one of their own and ignoring citizens rights.
Ex OPP officer, Paul Smith has been alleged to have been impersonating a Private Investigator status for over 5 years illegally, and still has not been investigated for making claims and entering statements and evidence as such when he was not legal to be acting as a private investigator for his paralegal girlfriend operating a scam to commit fraud in the LTB matters she represents landlords at illegally under the LTB ACT 2006 !!. Another matter ignored by the Barrie city police and the OPP commissioner.
Paralegal Catherine Stewart operates this property management company, Landlord Legal, out of a small cubicle style office located in Barrie, Ontario from 117 Bayfield Street. Stewart has been known to move her property management office frequently as she does NOT ALLOW TENANTS to enter her property management office under any circumstance.
Normal and legitimate property management companies would have the obligation to address tenant issues and other matters that would come up from the tenants of the landlords they represent.Stewart does not allow tenant contact, even for emergencies, she has always acted as a fraudulent property manager and abusing her paralegal status to harass tenants rights and privacy with intentions to evict them.Stewart lies on her website when she claims she sold her property management company which she operates from Barrie Ontario.
Privacy Violators has 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
Landlord Legal was officially launched in Barrie, Ontario, in 2006 by our founder C. April Stewart, who discovered through her property management company, Barrie Rentals Inc., that no one seemed to be advocating in a meaningful way for landlords. She was troubled by the treatment landlords received from tenants, the legislators, and the Board, and set out to level the playing field. She sold her management business and began her quest for landlord justice, which continues to date. Stewart’s passion for landlord’s rights has led to industry awards, national media coverage, and speaking engagements to hundreds of landlords throughout Ontario. Our firm represents landlords only!Our ServicesWe provide advocacy and representation to residential landlords only, anywhere in Ontario. We specialize in evicting problem tenants, and defending landlords against tenant initiated litigation. We represent landlords at the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB). We also provide educational seminars to landlords, real estate agents, investors and investment clubs, that are as entertaining as they are informative! Imagine the stories we can tell around here!
This is NOT the case when dealing with the illegal property management offices of paralegal Catherine Stewart !
- She uses illegal ownership name of April Stewart in LTB matters when acting as property manager under Landlord Legal
- She uses legal name of Catherine Stewart when acting as a paralegal for landlords under Landlord Legal.inc
- Catherine Stewart openly uses the self appointed term of “The Terminator”, as property manager and paralegal !!
- Has TENANT DO NOT ENTER SIGNS on property management door
- Does NOT ACCEPT PHONE CALLS from any TENANTS
- Sends letters, threats and warnings to tenants to EMAIL her their issues ONLY !
- Has been known to break into tenants house with the Barrie police watching and doing absolutely nothing
- Barrie police were an accessory to the break and enter when they witnessed it and took no actions !
- Has been known to openly threaten a tenant and HRTO applicant on her property management website
- Has EMAIL ONLY REGISTRATION forms available only from her website http://www.landlordlegal.ca for her illegal services
- Does not and will not accept communications for tenant emergencies or complaints or any issues
- Will NOT ADDRESS TENANT ISSUES for her landlord clients she represents
- Uses her alleged retired ex OPP officer boyfriend-husband to do illegal searches of tenants unit
- Has been known to use false testimony from ex OPP boyfriend in LTB, privacy commissioner complaints, Civil Court and HRTO
- Has been known to enter false evidence into HRTO matters filed against Paul Smith and Catherine Stewart
- has been known to sign LTB agreements for her landlord clients under April Stewart numerous times
- Has been known numerous times NOT TO HONOR any AGREEMENT she signs as April Stewart property manager
- Is NOT LEGAL to represent landlords as both property manager and paralegal in LTB matters.
- Breaches constitutional rights and the LTB Act using Paul Smith to photograph tenants houses, apartments
- Is only HIRED to EVICT THE TENANT not act as a legal property manager for landlords only
- 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.
Licensed paralegal Catherine Stewart is a disgrace to the Law Society and operates this illegal property management company from Barrie Ontario, although it it is a clear VIOLATION of the UPPER LAW SOCIETY OF CANADA (ULSC) Rules and Regulations conflict of interest laws she knowingly ignores.
Licensed paralegal Catherine Stewart has been operating this illegal property management business and representing LANDLORDS ONLY in Landlord and Tenant Board hearings although this is another breach of the ULSC rules and has the single intention of evicting the tenant fore her landlord only clients. Stewart uses her property management website to solicit the work for the landlords and uses her authority as a paralegal to bully, harass and violate tenant rights given to them for protection.
You must read the new series we compiled with things you can do when confronted by such illegal methods and you feel you can do nothing to stop the scum present in our court systems today. We have named the NEW SERIES after this paralegal, THE STEWART SOLUTION, who to this day is still completely photographing tenant units against the LTB Act, harassing helpless tenants and using powers given to her from the Law Society to evict the helpless tenants.
We want to give tenants more ideas and options when dealing with illegal methods used by their tenants, paralegals or the corrupt police forces out there. Read some of the points and tips we offer and give some feedback if we missed any options for helpless tenants to defend themselves against illegal property managers or crooked paralegals who knowingly break the law for their landlord clients.
We are still searching for photos of this ex OPP officer Paul Smith who operates as an illegal Private Investigator for Catherine Stewart, both from the little town of Walters Falls, Ontario, just outside of Meaford, Ontario.
WHO IS PROTECTING YOUR RIGHTS TO PRIVACY AND FREEDOM IN CANADA ?
Catherine April Stewart, a resident of Walter’s falls Ontario is a phoney self proclaimed advocator of Landlord ONLY rights and is known to practice law under several names and businesses.Stewart is also known to call herself the “terminator” when she attacks tenants in the LTB Hearings.
Stewart owns and operates a phoney property management company from 117 Bayfield Street, Barrie, Ontario under the name Landlord legal.
The phoney property management company Catherine Stewart runs is from a small cubicle office surrounded by numerous accountants in a firm there, and the building is owned by Wendy Kara of Sophia development Corporation.
These accountants have been known to receive confidential and private legal documents that were intended for her legal firms eyes only but has on numerous occasions received unprotected legal documents on her behalf when she operates her legal firm from her Walters Falls residence.
Stewart had closed her failing Meaford legal office last year after she neglected to inform the Civil courts and the Human Rights of the closure of her office that was on record to receive the legal files from Human Rights allegations brought up against Stewart, her husband Paul Smith and her landlord clients Dykstra Bros Electric.
YOU CAN’T TRUST A DYKSTRA !!
This phoney self proclaimed advocator for landlord only rights has had many complaints filed with the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) for her sharp practice methods of advocating including practicing law under several names.
The Law Society has so far protected the illegal actions of Stewart and has neglected to register ANY of the many complaints that have been filed with their office over many breaches of their own rules and rules of conduct with the courts Stewart has been accused and involved with directly.
Catherine April Stewart is the legal name registered at the LSUC for Stewart to practice law under, and the name of the business registered at the LSUC for her shady legal firm is Landlord legal inc.
Catherine Stewart has been practicing law at the LTB Board in Barrie, Meaford and numerous other cities across Ontario and using the name April Stewart under landlord legal, when she represents her landlord only clients.
Stewart has been known to make many deals under this name and is now very well known not to honor any agreements she makes with tenants only to have them take the matter into civil courts wasting their money and valuable court time for her purposes.
Stewart has also been known to harass Human Rights applicants when she complained to the Barrie police the tenant was showing up at the LTB hearings which is an open forum to anybody thatwishes to go. The police or this lowlife paralegal do not have the right to harass the tenants that wish to go to ANY LTB hearing for ANY REASON !
The corrupt Barrie police have harassed many tenants fore this ex OPP officer and his paralegal girlfriend but would not charge her for Break & enter, entering false statements, entering false documents or for harassing a human Rights applicant several times. Please read the many posts concerning this phoney Landlord Rights advocate.
Stewart has also been known to break into tenants units while being present at the crime with the Barrie police witnessing the act and telling her she did not have the legal right to enter the unit to begin with.
Another disgraced paralegal Diane Smith, has also been known for practicing law under different names and businesses and is also well known to have worked for Catherine Stewart on numerous past hearings.
Between the conflict of interests businesses Stewart owns and runs with her husband, ex OPP officer Paul Smith there has been numerous complaints to the LSUC over her legal practice and her submitting false testimony, statements and evidence from Paul Smith. Stewart has been known to use her Commissioner stamp to sign and authorize documents she submits from her husband when they pertain to her landlord only clients and Ontario LTB hearings.
Under the LTB Act 2006 Stewart does NOT FIT the definition of a landlord and should not be practicing law representing her slum lord clients.Paul Smith has also been known to work illegally as a Private Investigator for this paralegal when he was not licensed to do so in Ontario. Many statements Paul Smith gave to the Privacy Commissioner, Civil Courts, LTB hearings and the Human Rights allegations has statements coming from him as a private investigator working for Stewart.
Stewart has been known to break many rules of the Law Society and Rules and regulations for paralegals and many Rules of Conduct courts and has gone as far as entering false evidence into the Human Rights allegations brought up against Catherine April Stewart, her husband Paul Smith, William Dykstra, Ralph Dykstra and Donald Dykstra of Dykstra Bros Electric of Barrie Ontario.
Stewart is also known for not paying court orders that have been given to her to pay when she failed to show or notify the courts on several occasions.
Stewart had another paralegal lied at the LTB hearing she was accused of breaking & entering into a tenants unit while witnesses and the Barrie police watched. Paul Smith admitted to cowering behind a car when the tenant tried serving him legal documents to appear in LTB court for photographing his unit against the LTB Act 2006.Another crooked ex OPP cop that abuses the system for his paralegal girlfriend.
New complaints have been filed again against Catherine Stewart with the Law Society of Upper Canada who has been known to protect lawyers and paralegals when they break the law or even the rules set out by the society to govern the conduct of these one year graduates who receive a law degree from shady colleges in Ontario.
Privacy Violators will have the actual complaints posted live with all the responses from the governing body for lawyers and paralegals and will post all the comments and results from the many, many complaints.
Privacy Violators has received many emails and evidence that many other complaints have previously been filed against Catherine Stewart with the LSUC but there are no records of any of the complaints filed against her.
The writer had filed Break and Enter complaints against Stewart that were dismissed when David Cass, LSUC intake officer dismissed without reason or evidence in September 2013. David Cass is accused of protecting paralegals even though they violate the rules set out governing the conduct of paralegals and lawyers by the LSUC.
Catherine Stewart is another disgrace to the LSUC when she practices law under numerous names and knowingly and willingly signs and submits false statements and false evidence, in her own Human Rights allegations filed in 2014. Entering false evidence is a criminal offense as is break and enter. No paralegal is allowed to be present during an illegal act for any reason let alone be a party to it.
Read the many posts of the illegal activity done by this paralegal who practices under different names and businesses in and around Barrie, Ontario.
Complaints to the fraud department of the Canada Revenue Agency have been launched against alleged ex OPP officer Paul Smith and Catherine Stewart.
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.
Ask yourself these questions as you read some of the tactics used at the bottom of this post !!
- How do paralegals and lawyers get away with this “Sharp Practice” tactics in our court system ?
- Why should paralegals and lawyers get away with this “Sharp Practice” tactics in our court system ?
- What cost of Canadian tax dollars is spent for the intentional tactics used by these lawyers and paralegals?
- What is the effect of the court system with back logs of honest cases to be heard but delayed.?
- Who protects the Canadian citizens who put their trust in the law and the courts to protect them ?
- Why does the Law Society turn a blind eye to the LSUC members who commit sharp practice?
- How far does sharp practice and breaking the rules and regulations go in our Canadian courts?
- How many vexatious cases are filed and delayed, from Sharp Practice paralegals & lawyers?
- How much police time is wasted on false complaints filed by sharp practice paralegals and lawyers?
- How much of Police budget is wasted for the paralegals who file false complaints against opposing party?
- How much stress is put on the opposing parties when dealing with sharp practice paralegals and lawyers?
- 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 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 !!
** 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.
* 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.
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.
A privacy breach involves improper or unauthorized collection, use, disclosure, retention or disposal of personal information.

After reading the many methods known to be used by the Barrie paralegal Catherine Stewart, and her little property management company, to manipulate legal proceedings, you can see the deliberate delays and the intentional refusal to pay court orders issued to her directly or to her landlord clients, only deliberately causes additional back log of honest legal cases not being heard in our courts.
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 !
An 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 from 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 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 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.
Paralegal 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 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.
After a long needed vacation and a trip across Canada, the writer is ready to discuss the Human Rights allegations and evidence that were brought up against a Walters Falls paralegal, Catherine April Stewart and her ex OPP officer boyfriend, Paul Smith, also of Walters Falls and can now be brought online to the attention of the public to see the injustice that is allowed in our Ontario court system from the Barrie Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) to the Barrie Civil Courts all the way to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (HRTO) and the neglect of the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) to investigate the legitimate complaints filed by Canadian Citizens.
The HRTO allegations referred to are against paralegal & property manager Catherine April Stewart and ex OPP officer Paul Smith from HRTO file number 17699-14.You can request any of the documentation found here on our website from us at privacy violators or apply under the Freedom of Information with any of the file numbers given.
Along with Human Rights violations alleged and admitted to the wrong doing by the HRTO were allegations of false documents entered into evidence from Paul Smith which were notarized and witnessed by his paralegal girlfriend, Catherine Stewart who also represented the ex OPP officer and herself at the hearing until she admitted in April 2016 that, and I quote “she knows nothing of the Human Rights process” as we waited for her new lawyer, David Stashin to arrive at the hearing 2 1/2 hours later.
The false evidence allegations against Catherine Stewart and Paul Smith that was filed with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario had been ignored even though the applicant had filed the proper documents to HRTO stating the evidence did not exist at the North Toronto LTB office. The original evidence submitted as well as all the correspondence from the HRTO is to be uploaded for the public to see what paralegals can manipulate in our Ontario courts.
Walters Falls paralegal, Catherine April Stewart refused to proceed at the scheduled HRTO hearing until David Stashin arrived to take over after she herself submitted false evidence and testimony to which she herself signed with her Commissioner of Oaths Stamp for her own allegations against her and her ex OPP boyfriend Paul Smith.
Catherine April Stewart lives in Walters Falls and is a paralegal licensed by the Law Society of Upper Canada.
Catherine April Stewart is also a property manager running her paralegal and property management company from a small cubicle office from 117 Bayfield Street, Barrie Ontario.
The paralegal uses Landlord Legal inc for her paralegal services and signs Catherine April Stewart when working in this capacity.
The paralegal uses a property management company called Landlord Legal which is known to sign April Stewart when working in this capacity.
The property manager is a self proclaimed “LANDLORD RIGHTS ADVOCATE ONLY” and uses her Landlord Legal website to announce she is the self proclaimed”TERMINATOR”
The Landlord Legal website owned by Catherine Stewart is known to publicly threaten a tenant who had filed Human Rights allegations against her and her known boyfriend.
The property manager sends out “Do not Contact” and “Do not Trespass” letters without a letterhead making it look like it came from a legal office but was from the property manager capacity.
The paralegal is breaking rules of the Law Society by working in this conflict of interest positions as a paralegal and a property manager.
The paralegal is breaking rules of the Landlord and Tenant board when she represents landlords because she is a property manager but neglects to tell the opposing parties or the Landlord and Tenant Board she is also a paralegal and does not fit the definition of a “LANDORD” in the LTB courts but rather states she is a “Landlord Representative”.
Catherine April Stewart is known to sign April Stewart as a property manager, even with legal court documents when her legal name is Catherine April Stewart.
Catherine April Stewart is also known to use her ex OPP officer boyfriend, Paul Smith to do illegal searches of tenants residences and to sign her Commissioner of Oaths Stamp to testimony from her OPP alliance to further her clients interests.
The upcoming posts are going to be many, to put the truth online and the truth behind the corruption that is allowed in the Ontario Provincial Police force, the Barrie City Police force, the Barrie Civil Courts, the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal and the well known tactics used by many paralegals that are swept under the rug from the Law Society of Upper Canada.
Privacy Violators will post the evidence used, documents submitted, and the testimony and methods used by paralegals like Catherine April Stewart disguising themselves as property managers but practice Law openly, getting away with breaking the Rules, Laws and Rights set in place for people that honor the laws and rights of Ontario citizens.
Privacy Violators website has received many emails concerning paralegal / property manager Catherine Stewart and Toronto lawyer, David Strashin and will be discussing the tactics they have used in the past and the Law Society complaints that were filed against them and ignored by the LSUC.
Privacy Violators has also learned of other complaints filed with the LSUC against David Strashin and Catherine Stewart but there is no records of any of the complaints filed on their Law Society profiles, including the complaints filed July 2014 against Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal inc misrepresenting herself as Landlord Legal, property manager.
New complaints to the Law Society of Upper Canada are being filed against these individuals and will be well watched by Privacy Violators and other websites that have expressed interested in these stories being ignored by the so called protectors of our rights.
The truth is the Human Rights Tribunal is the biggest joke in Ontario and the details to prove this will develop over the next few weeks on our website with all the documentation and communications that transpired for HRTO file numbers 17699-14 and Dykstra Bros Electric HRTO 16250-13.
The HRTO admits the applicant was not treated fairly and quite frankly the process was a joke and the evidence that will be uploaded is there for you to make your own judgement with the HRTO system in place.

If the Human Rights can not protect and honor my rights, and constantly allow paralegals to manipulate a system after going to a CTI school for one year and BUY THEIR PARALEGAL LICENSES, I will be god damned if I honor any other minority, gay, lesbian, fag, black, Hispanic, woman’s movement or anyone else’s rights !!
ALL LIVES MATTER… bullshit
Tell me that after reading all the HRTO claims and evidence brought against Dykstra Bros Electric of Barrie and an ex OPP officer and his paralegal girlfriend, Catherine April Stewart disguised as a property manager.
I sincerely mean it when I say ” FUCK the corrupt police, FUCK the corrupt Ontario Court System and FUCK the corrupt Human Rights Tribunal and FUCK the corrupt Law Society of Upper Canada” it is a waste of your time.
I hope they all rot in HELL for their known injustices they participate in and constantly overlook.

You are the only one that can protect your rights, not this corrupt system they call justice.. ALL LIVES MATTER but not at the Ontario Human Rights Tribunals or the Human Rights Commission !!
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 retrieve 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 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.
- Post the photos of any sent inspector photographing your complete unit on all your social networks.
- 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.
- Stewart is well known for disclosing private tenant information so protect your photos & documents beforehand
- Stewart is known for ignoring requests to change date, even interrupted a birthday party to photograph a unit.

When you go to Landlord & Tenant Board hearing

- Bring your witnesses into the LTB hearing for the judge to hear testimony of this illegal photographing
- Mention to LTB judge that Stewart signs illegal name of April Stewart on legal court documents
- Mention to the LTB judge Catherine Stewart is legal name and she is a paid paralegal for the landlord

- Bring to the attention of the LTB judge she does not fit the definition of landlord under the LTB Act 2006.
- Bring to the attention of the duty counsel Stewart is a paralegal and not allowed to represent landlords in LTB.
- 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.
- Report Catherine Stewart to the Law Society of Upper Canada for investigation again.
- Send detailed complaint with all the infractions she is bound to breach and use against you.
- Publish the complaints online so the public can see the neglect going on at the Law Society intake process.
- 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 !!
On August 15th 2014 Catherine April Stewart, a paralegal and property manager out of Walters Falls, Ontario but running a small cubicle office from 117 Bayfield Street, instructed owner of Central Lock and Key, Paul Robertson and his son Cody Robertson to cut a security chain, pick the hand lock and break into 40 Ellen Street Barrie Ontario after Officer Melanie Beard and Officer turner had told her quite adamantly that she did not have the proper paperwork or the right to enter a tenants unit.
Barrie police officer Melanie Beards official police incident report, applied for through the Freedom of Information Act by the tenant is available here that states Catherine Stewart did not have the authority, proper paperwork or the right to break into the tenants unit at 40 Ellen street, Barrie, Ontario : Beard-report-Aug-15th-2014
Barrie police officer Turner official transcribed police incident report from August 15th 2014, applied for through the Freedom of Information act by the tenant is available here that states he told paralegal / property manager Catherine April Stewart she did not have the proper documentation, authority or the right to instruct owner of Barrie’s Central Lock and Key, Paul Robertson and his son Cody Robertson to cut a security chain, pick the hand lock and enter 40 Ellen Street, Barrie Ontario, owned by Ralph Dykstra, Donald Dykstra and William Dykstra, owners of the past company Dykstra Bros electric (now Gerard Dykstra Electric of Barrie, Ontario). CST Turner-transcribed
Catherine Stewart, Barrie paralegal working as a property manager and paralegal for the Barrie Slum Lords is quoted as saying in the Barrie police incident report
She (Catherine April Stewart) was adamant. She was going to change the locks and has been doing this job for 13 years and can legally do so and not tell her how to do her job
For over 13 years this paralegal disguised as a property manager has been manipulating the Landlord and tenant Board hearings acting as both the property manager and a paralegal which ids not allowed under the LTB Act 2006. This does not fit the definition of a “Landlord” but she uses the term “Landlord representative” to deceive the LTB courts for the last 15 years when acting as a “Landlord only Rights Advocate” and evicting tenants for her landlord clients.
The Landlord and Tenant Board needs to be aware that Catherine A Stewart has been manipulating the courts and this needs to be addressed and stopped to protect Tenant rights.
We are the new Tenant Rights Advocate bringing the “Sharp Practice” frowned upon by the Law Society, which is a joke in itself, to the public spotlight.
Paralegals like Catherine April Stewart have been known to sign documents in LTB as April Stewart, which is not her legal name but then sign documents or Commissioner of Oath statements as Catherine April Stewart, her real given legal name.
This paralegal, Catherine April Stewart, manipulates the system using the company name Landlord Legal inc while in the capacity of a paralegal and signs Catherine April Stewart to court documents for her clients as their paralegal.
This paralegal Catherine April Stewart manipulates the court system using the company name Landlord Legal (NO inc at the end) and signs Landlord and Tenant Board documents as April Stewart.
The Law Society Rules say she is in conflict of interest using both capacities to manipulate the LTB board and the business act says she should be signing her legal name of Catherine A Stewart when a paralegal acting under her Landlord Legal inc company name.
This self proclaimed “Landlord Rights Only” Advocate is known to use locksmiths like the one owned by Paul Robertson of Barrie, Ontario, Central Lock and Key to break into tenants units because they have no physical address or brick and mortar store in which to serve legal papers to. If you are facing Paul Robertson, call their mobile number and have Paul or Cody come to a vehicle entry or key replacement and serve them when they show for the job. These cowards use many different ways to manipulate the police or the Court system as will be discussed in detail this year.
Catherine A Stewart is also known to use her boyfriend and ex OPP officer, Paul Smith of Walters Falls to enter units to photograph before evicting tenants and signing her Commissioner of Oaths Stamp to statements made by Paul Smith.
Paul Smith is known to act as a process server for the last ten years for his girlfriend and paralegal and is alleged to have given her false documents that she entered into Civil and Human rights Hearings that involved Landlord Legal directly. As an experienced process server Paul Smith should have known when he signed his name to Certificate of services that it is not legally filed until he files his signed statement with the Landlord and tenant Board.
Catherine April Stewart received a Certificate of Service from this ex OPP officer,home inspector,handyman,delivery boy and process server and entered it into evidence for a Human rights Hearing. The North Toronto LTB office had no record of the Certificate of Service he had given his girlfriend when she was defending Ralph Dykstra, Bill Dykstra and Donald Dykstra as a property manager and paralegal.
Paralegal / property Manager..Catherine April Stewart and her ex OPP boyfriend were also named in Human Rights allegations HRTO 17699-14 and the fraudulent documents were also submitted into evidence for their hearing as well as her Dykstra clients.
The Walters Falls resident and Barrie paralegal also refused to take a summons served to the ex cop and her boyfriend Paul Smith when the tenant filed LTB complaints against the “LANDLORD REPRESENTATIVE” as shown above.
You can not trust Landlord legal property manager or Landlord Legal inc paralegal to honor any court ordered agreement. The tenant had to take the paralegal and her clients to Barrie Civil court to retrieve an order issue by LTB Judge Sean Henry that was signed by April Stewart acting as the Dykstra’s Legal representative breaking the rules of the LTB Board when she did not fit the Landlord definition as defined by the LTB Act 2006.The order signed by Sean Henry was finally paid by William Dykstra
about 8 months after the order was agreed to by Catherine April Stewart proving you can not trust any of the Dykstra’s and Catherine Stewart no matter what they agree to and sign in court. Please be aware of these tactics constantly used by the Sharp Practices of Landlord Legal while she manipulates the LTB and the Ontario court Systems. Privacy Violators has received many emails of deals made by Catherine Stewart on behalf of her clients and many of the emails received state she did not pay the Court Orders. We will post the additional information we received when the personal Human Rights allegations against this paralegal and the ex OPP officer are discussed in full in our upcoming posts !!
The tenant will take this paralegal back to civil court to waste her time and the Civil courts time to retrieve the Court Ordered payments which she owes and thinks is a joke.
Another Sharp Practice used by abusive paralegals manipulating the legal system for their own gain or her clients gain in our opinion.
Catherine April Stewart has also failed to pay court ordered money when she and her Dykstra clients failed to appear in Barrie Civil Courts and had further lost two motions Catherine April Stewart had brought forward in the civil matters.
How can you be a Landlord Rights Advocate when you violate other peoples rights ?
ALL LIVES MATTER EXCEPT IF YOU ARE A PARALEGAL DEALING IN SHARP PRACTICE !!
What is “sharp practice ?” Read this posts to find out :
The following series of posts will be discussing the rules of the Law Society of Upper Canada and private paralegals who work as a property manager at the same time.
Should a paralegal be allowed to abuse the system working as a property manager who owes rights to tenants and a paralegal who does not owe any rights except to her landlord clients?
How can the Law Society of Upper Canada allow rights to be ignored by allowing such a person to work in both capacities.
They might as well let a judge be a police officer and a judge at the same time !!
The LSUC rules that are in place governing these types of businesses will be discussed at length as will the LSUC complaints filed against Catherine Stewart AKA April Stewart when they are finally heard after the Human rights allegations filed in 2013, are dealt with in Toronto, April 2016.
Landlord Rights advocate April Stewart of Landlord Legal
April Stewart of Landlord Legal, has failed to show for illegal entry and illegal lock change allegations that the Barrie police stood by and witnessed on August 15th 2013. The Freedom of Information requests concerning the reports from officer Melanie Beard and officer Turner, the attending Barrie police officers, will be posted when the Human rights allegations against Stewart, Smith and the Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra and Donald Dykstra of the Dykstra Bros Electric company are dealt with in April 2016.
Catherine A Stewart had filed the VEXATIOUS claims against Privacy Violators to further delay the Law Society of Upper Canada complaints filed by the ex tenant of Dykstra Bros Electric.
Landlord Legal closed the 44 Sykes Street, Meaford office after only one year after expanding her small Barrie office to the Meaford office. The owner of Landlord Legal failed to notify the human Rights tribunal of the office closing, knowing the address was on file for the Toronto Human Rights Tribunal Ontario allegations against Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal, her boyfriend, ex OPP, Paul T Smith and her Dykstra Bros Electric Barrie clients, William Dykstra, Donald Dykstra and William (Bill) Dykstra.
The ex tenant has asked the LSUC to hear the complaints of the illegal break in and failing to show for the allegations and further failed to notify parties of her intent to NOT SHOW. Stewart sends another paralegal in her place to lie for her in court, claiming she is “out of the country”. Stewart never has to prove these statements because she refused to show for the break in allegations after the officer’s that witnessed the events were present at the September 2013 Landlord and Tenant Board hearing for her Dykstra Bros Electric clients, Ralph Dykstra, William Dykstra and Donald Dykstra.
Read the Human Rights allegations against her company HERE and the Barrie, Dykstra Bros Electric, who are related to G Dykstra Electric of Barrie.
Read the posts about this disgraced paralegal HERE.
Read the Law Society of Upper Canada decision and order concerning this disgraced paralegal HERE.
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.

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

It has come to Privacy Violators website attention, through numerous emails, that a yet unnamed Ontario Police Officer from Meaford has harassed several Canadian citizens instead of investigating known complaints of an ex OPP officer, Paul Smith practicing as a private investigator for several years, while un sanctioned to do so in Ontario.
Ex OPP officer Paul Smith has been known to operate as a process server, a witness and an illegal private investigator for owner and wife, Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal, Barrie, Ontario and is being protected by fellow OPP officers in Meaford, Ontario.
Paul Smith, along with his paralegal wife, Catherine Stewart have been known to work together in a fake property management firm in Meaford and Barrie, Ontario to evict tenants for their landlord only clients.
Paul Smith has been known to state in courts documents, that he has had a private investigator license for over 6 years but he was not sanctioned by any registered and legal company to operate in this capacity in Ontario Canada.
Smith has been known to give statements in landlord and Tenant board, Civil Court, Human Rights tribunal and to the Privacy commissioner of Canada, which were signed by his paralegal wife stating he was a private investigator working for his wife, Catherine Stewart’s paralegal firm landlordlegal inc. Stewart has been known to use her commissioner stamp to sign documents she submits from Paul Smith to further her landlord only clients cases she acquires through her phony property management company she runs to manipulate the LTB board when she represents land lords ONLY under the name April Stewart which is not the name on file at the Law Society of Upper Canada to practice law in Ontario.
Stewart’s landlord only fake property management company does NOT ALLOW tenants to contact her PM office for any reason, even emergencies. For tenant related emergencies she recommends the tenant email her office which is located in a small cubicle office at 117 Bayfield Street, Barrie, Ontario.Stewart is also known to openly harass and threaten a Human Rights applicant when he named Catherine Stewart and Paul Smith in Humamn Rights allegations (HRTO
Stewart is known to use the fake private investigator status of Paul Smith to enter tenants units and photograph their units illegally against the LTB Act 2006 and the Canadian Constitution which is suppose to guarantee privacy and harassment protection.
The yet unknown investigating Meaford OPP officer has been well aware of the alleged ex Ontario Provincial Police officer practicing as a illegal private investigator for some time but has neglected to investigate the ex officers false statements, false evidence submissions and illegal practice. The Meaford OPP have been well known for protecting ex police officers in the past and this seems to be a common practice for any law enforcement officers investigating Paul Smith and his paralegal wife, Catherine Stewart.
New complaints are pending and have been filed again against this Ontario paralegal, Catherine Stewart, with the LSUC for practicing law under several names that are not registered with the Law Society with numerous harassment claims, as well as procedural complaints with Stewart.
Stewart is also alleged to have submitted false statements and false evidence she signed and submitted that had come from Paul Smith, her husband while directly named in Civil Court and Human Rights allegations against the pair.
Ex OPP officer Paul Smith has been alleged to have entered false evidence for his wife Catherine Stewart several times to help her evict tenants for her clients.
We will update these Meaford OPP officers names in future posts concerning this ex OPP officer, Paul Smith and his paralegal wife who continue to work illegally harassing Ontario tenants and Human Rights applicants.
The Meaford Ontario Provincial Police officers, are well aware that paralegal Stewart is alleged to be known to be present during a break and enter allegation at 40 Ellen Street, Barrie Ontario, and that Stewart continually harasses and threatens tenants, and Human Rights applicants who file complaints, on her public website located here http://www.landlordlegal.ca.
Send us your emails concerning any known instances of the Meaford OPP protecting their own officers and failing to investigate them when it comes to ex police officers breaking the laws in Ontario.
Law Society paralegal Catherine Stewart is well known to sign her name as April Stewart in court and then refuses to honor agreements she makes.
Catherine Stewart is also known not to pay court orders against her for not showing in court and failing to notify the other parties involved against her.
Catherine Stewart is also alleged to have lied in LTB court in 2013 when she claimed to be out of the country when break and enter allegations were brought up against her in LTB hearings, the LSUC has yet to investigate the 10 to 15 complaints filed against Stewart with the Law Society.
A new series of posts will be added to the Privacy Violators website to follow the upcoming two pending civil cases filed by Ralph Dykstra,Don Dykstra and Bill (William) Dykstra of Dykstra Electric,Barrie,Ontario.
- Civil court case against Privacy-Violators.com website postings

A court date has yet to be set for the Ontario Human Rights case filed by a Barrie,Ont ex tenant against Ralph Dykstra, Bill Dykstra and Don Dykstra of Dykstra Bros Electric, Barrie,Ontario.
The Dykstra’s are represented in Superior Court by a private paralegal from Meaford, Ontario,April C Stewart, owner of Landlord Legal.
Stewart has sent a cease & desist letter on behalf of Dykstra Electric to Privacy Violators website concerning the posts that we are following on ALL the pending Landlord & Tenant Board,Privacy Commissioner complaints and Ontario Human Right court cases that allegedly involve Ralph Dykstra,Don Dykstra and Bill Dykstra’s and have asked the website be shut down. We have answered her letter with the absolute intent to challenge April Stewart and the Dykstra’s in Superior Court in Barrie,Ontario.
April C Stewart has sent a cease & desist letter and has also filed her own civil case against Privacy Violators website for the posts following ALL the Barrie,Ontario Landlord & Tenant Tribunal,Privacy Commissioner complaints and the Upper Law Society of Canada complaints that a Barrie tenant has filed against April Stewart,Diane Lynn Smith and the Dykstras.
You can bookmark and follow the Stewart VS Privacy Violators website civil case HERE
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

This is a follow up post concerning the complaints that were filed with the Upper Law Society of Canada, against Diane Lynn Smith, of Smith Paralegal Services,Barrie, Ontario.
The complaints were filed on June 8th 2013, from a Barrie tenant alleging Diane Smith had harassed him by sending a letter representing herself as a legal “lawyer” and representative for Nancy Groves,when she was not legal to do so.
Diane Smith did not respond to any correspondence from the Upper Law Society of Canada nor did she appear at the administrative hearing set for her December 13th, 2013.
You can read the previous post and complaints filed along with the original letter sent from Smith Paralegal Service : HERE
The Upper Law Society: Diane Lynn Smith Decision and Order – heard by Hon. John D Ground,QC (chair) on December 13th,2013 in Toronto,Ontario is shown below.
Diane Lynn Smith is also being further investigated by the ULSC, as she was also hired by another paralegal, April Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal Services,Meaford,Ontario to represent Nancy Groves (involved tenant) on behalf of Dykstra Bros Electric. A civil case is currently being considered against Smith and will be filed soon and all pending court cases against Diane Smith will be posted here with the follow up posts.
A court date has yet to be set for the Ontario Human Rights case filed against Ralph Dykstra, Bill Dykstra and Don Dykstra of Dykstra Bros Electric, Barrie,Ontario.
We will continue to follow all the court cases involved with Dykstra/Groves/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.
Miss Groves,an involved tenant, was also represented by the same Meaford paralegal, April Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal, in the court ordered appearance for Miss Groves to produce documents to the court to prove her rent was paid directly to the landlords from other sources.Dykstra Bros Electric received Nancy Groves rent payments,in part, from the Mental Health Association and also in part from Ontario Disability and paid directly to the Barrie landlords.
April Catherine Stewart did not have the documents that were requested of Nancy Groves by the courts on the ordered date to appear, though sufficient time was given, Landlord Legal instead decided to waste the time of the Barrie courts, Simcoe Legal Services and the Barrie tenant filing the case against Dykstra Bros for the FALSELY MEDIATED agreement and the money they owe.
April Stewart had also wasted the Barrie Landlord & Tenant tribunal courts time as well as the time of 3 witnesses that were summoned against her clients the Dykstras for the alleged illegal lock change at 40 Ellen Street. April Stewart is currently being investigated by the Upper Law Society of Canada for her participation in this alleged matter.
Stewart had also neglected to properly inform the involved Barrie tenant, although she had phone number, email address and Simcoe Legal Service contacts to contact easily, or the LTB courts that she was allegedly out of the country and was unable to attend. The tenant withdrew the matter to deal with it in the Ontario Human Rights court in Toronto.
** The papers supporting Groves claim were finally mailed to the Simcoe Legal Services paralegal helping with the civil case against the Dykstras and forwarded the appropriate documents to the tenant.
One of the Dykstra brothers, Bill Dykstra will be summoned to Superior Court to answer for their financial status and the reasons the LTB order and Civil court orders were not followed.
Please contact the Upper Law Society of Canada, if you have had dealings with Diane Smith this year or have had bad experience with Landlord Legal to report.
We will continue to update the past posts, photos and documents that have been slightly delayed because of minor pending matters very shortly.
Another example post to emphasize to you how important it is to safeguard your personal information everyday and everywhere.
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:
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.
This is a follow up post to the Upper law Society of Canada complaint that was filed earlier this year against Smith Paralegal Services of Barrie, Ontario.
Diane Lynn Smith is a paralegal from Barrie Ontario who is now being investigated by the Upper Law Society of Canada concerning complaints and allegations brought forward from a Barrie tenant.
It is alleged that Diane Smith had practiced law and represented, defended numerous clients this year but was under a suspension from the Upper Law Society of Canada at the time. If you had hired Smith Paralegal Services to represent you for any reason this year, the Upper Law Society would like to hear from you on all the matters Smith Paralegal Services had dealt with for you.
It is further alleged that Diane Smith harassed a tenant that was involved with an ongoing Landlord & Tenant Tribunal matter as well as pending Ontario Human Rights complaints & allegations involving Ralph Dykstra, Bill Dykstra, Don Dykstra, owners of Dykstra Bros Electric of Barrie, Ontario.
Smith has ignored information requests and has yet to contact the Upper law Society regarding the ULSC investigation against her. The matter is set to go to before an administrative hearing on Friday, December 13th, 2013. When the administration hearing rules on the matter on Friday, we will post the results here on Privacy Violators website and also will be published on the Upper Law Society website for the public to review the determination of the hearing. We will of course do a follow up to the findings and provide you with the link to review the results.
Further complaints and allegations stemming from an illegal lock change, harassment and PIPEDA violations were filed with the Upper Law Society of Upper Canada for investigation regarding another paralegal, April Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal from Meaford,Ontario who was at the time representing Dykstra Bros Electric.
Catherine Stewart is also being followed in our Court Cases in the News category concerning the Civil court complaint she has filed against Privacy Violators and the tenant she was harassing to get an eviction from the 40 Ellen Street property owned by Ralph Dyksta, Bill Dykstra and Don Dykstra of Dykstra Bros Electric of Barrie. Other articles you might be interested in reading up concerning these complaints is the Landlord Legal/Dykstra Bros Electric Mediate in Bad Faith post.
We will continue to post the rulings and determinations of all the allegations and complaints involved with these two paralegals and continue to follow the Dykstra Bros Electric cases as they go into to Civil matters and Ontario Human Rights Tribunal court.
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.
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.

Mr Soghoian first came to his national prominence in 2006 when the FBI showed up at his house at 2 am to seize the computers on which he had created a site that allowed anyone to take advantage of an outrageous Transportation Security Administration digital dereliction and generate fake boarding passes on Northwest Airlines, with a default name of Osama Bin Laden. The Feds were not amused but closed the criminal investigation without filing charges – and three years later actually hired Soghoian to work in the Federal Trade Commission’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. His freewheeling maverick ways were not the best match for the staid government agency and he was released a year later, but by then his name was synonymous with divulging and publicizing security breaches at the highest levels.

We should greatly appreciate a lot more, the sacrifices that other people make for us to bring the security and privacy violations they discover into the public spotlight. With technology moving at an incredible pace toward the increased use and reliance of the internet, the need to make the internet giants, advertisers and other companies that hold, gain or manipulate the private information they obtain from us fully accountable for their actions.
Join the fight to keep your privacy safe. Post or report any privacy violations that you find, wherever and however you can. Reporting the privacy violations to the proper authorities and bringing the issues into the public eye as much as possible is the best way to fight back against the odds and Protect Your Rights.

For many companies, collecting sensitive consumer and employee information is an essential part of doing business. It’s your legal responsibility to take steps to properly secure or dispose of it. Financial data, personal information from kids, and material derived from credit reports may raise additional compliance considerations.
We have all heard the expression
“My landlord is a slum lord. What makes a landlord a slum lord ?
Wikipedia free encyclopedia defines it as :A slumlord (or slum landlord) is a derogatory term for a landlord, generally an absentee landlord with more than one property, who attempts to maximize profit by minimizing spending on property maintenance, often in deteriorating neighborhoods. They may need to charge lower than market rent to tenants. Severe housing shortages allow slumlords to charge higher rents.
As many of these neighborhoods are often populated by poor minorities, the term “ghetto landlord” has also been used. A “retail slumlord” is one who keeps a shopping mall in a bad shape until the government buys or confiscates it.
The phrase slumlord first appeared in 1953, though the term slum landlord dates to 1893. ~ wikipedia
If you have landlords that do not follow the municipal building codes, City by laws or the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006 there are things you can do about it. We are not talking about minor paint chips but more extreme living conditions like broken windows, heat or hot water unavailable to more extreme conditions.
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
** There is always the chance the landlord retaliates when he is forced to comply.
