Chapter 30 – Monday January 1, 2018 to Saturday March 31, 2018

Tuesday January 2, 2018 – Agostino came by to collect the rent (Vid 34). He brought Richard Pollington with him, but Richard was well behaved so we raised no objection. Agostino also accepted delivery of two letters, and discussed repairs of the drafty windows. The two letters Agostino accepted were a request by Marie for […]

Chapter 29 – Friday November 3, 2017 to Sunday December 31, 2017

Friday November 3, 2017 – Thursday November 30, 2017 – There was occasional activity in Unit #1 on the 97 side of the building. Agostino and assorted workers were in and out of the unit on weekends, and Marie mentioned to me that she had seen Agostino in and around the building during the day […]

Chapter 28 – Friday September 29, 2017 – Thursday November 2, 2017

Yakhni becomes even more of an unprofessional pain in the ass to deal with. Pollington maes an appaerance with a camera in hand, as does Christina Stamper.
Our landlord simply ignores the Interim Order issued by a board member, as does his representative.

So far, this disagreement with our landlord had used up 8 hours 10 minutes of hearing time at the LTB, in 8 hearings, one by telephone, five in person (counting the Case Management Hearing and mediation session of May 19, 2017 as hearings). It has also used up 7 hours and 50 minutes of a mediator’s time.

Chapter 22A – Rant: Wednesday May 27, 2020 – 100,000 and Counting…

Some rambling, semi-disjointed musings of a bemused citizen; While getting my daily dose of news about COVID-19 I saw a report on CNN that the US had surpassed 100,000 reported deaths from the virus. It brought to mind these events, from the second week of April. I distinctly recall seeing President Trump saying “Anything under […]

Chapter 26 – Monday September 25, 2017 to Wednesday September 27, 2017

Chapter 23 – Thursday August 3, 2017 to Wednesday August 9, 2017

My roommate and I were preparing our defense against John’s L2 eviction application due to be heard on August 10.
John had not tried to enter the unit on August 3 or 4. Pollington was still hostile, and his guests were becoming hostile.

Rant: May 23, 2020 – “We’re all in this together…until it cuts into my profits.”
