Barrie Superior Court of Justice – #1851-13
PENDING COURT ACTIONS – will update when available information is processed
Catherine Stewart (link to ULSCÂ website -go to directory) a P1 type paralegal and self proclaimed "The Terminator" on her older website is the owner of Landlord legal, Meaford, Ontario has sent cease and desist letters to Your Pal Al blog to shut down its help site. Landlord legal has gone so far as to harass and interfere with our rights to publish our material that they have also sent cease and desist letters to Pier 1 in Toronto,Ontario in attempts to have us shut down.
We responded to the complaint with emails to both Pier 1 and Landlord Legal saying the site was never a LIVE website at that time and was always in development and in "Maintenance Mode" while the website was being developed. The lead in stories on the maintenance page resulted in legal action being sought from both Landlord legal and Your Pal Al.com on these matters and we will keep you up to date as usual with all the information,court documents and photos related to these court cases.

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
