Part 15 – June 26, 27 & 28, 2017

We had invited a few friends over for Monday, June 26, 2017 and hadn't received John's Notice in time to change our plans, so we had a few witnesses on hand for John's circus this time. Around 10:10 I noticed Agostino's vehicle come onto the property, and went downstairs to speak with him. 2017-06-26-1014 - [...]

Part 14 – June 3-June 25, 2017

After John and the looney crew left on June 2, 2017 things were quiet for a few days, aside from Richard Pollington becoming increasingly antagonistic. He would shout "cocksucker" or "idiot" or "welfare bum" at me as I would enter or exit the building. He'd usually make his comment, then duck insode whatever door was [...]

Part 13 – June 1&2, 2017

This time we brought a few witnesses along. My roomate had a theory that John was misogynistic, so she invited a few friends. It was a weird mob, even by the standards of our house, and included a transgender woman named Illona. Her tongue is razor sharp. I was looking forward to John trying his [...]

Part 12 – May 18-30, 2017

During this period, I had some conversations with city officials about the mess. I'll fill in the details of that fiasco in other posts. To sum it up, the City of Hamilton is massively uninterested in the problem it has with slumlords. On May 19, 2017 we attended a mediation session at the LTB offices [...]

Part 9 – May 15, 2017

On May 15, 2017, around 9 am we noticed John's vehicle parked on the street in front of the building. My roomate and I had prepared the unit as best we could without knowing the areas John needed to access. We had cleared the area around windows throughout the entire unit, which was a lot [...]

Part 8 – May 1, 2017-May 14, 2017

On May 1, 2017 Agostino arrived (on time) to collect the rent. https://youtu.be/16v5HpqpvfM 2017-05-01 14 06 - rent payment I don't know the identity of the woman accompanying Agostino, and haven't seen her around the building since. It later became obvious that Agostino is every bit as sleazy as his brother, but he's a lot [...]

Part 7 – April 2, 2017-April 30, 2017

April 2, 2017 was my birthday, so I ignored the problem for a day. On April 3, 2017 I called Agostino to try and make arrangements to pay the rent. 2017-04-03 10-33 - Telephone Conversation - Agostino and Peter (2894892913_Out) Not very productive. A phone call to Richard Pollington an hour later was made to [...]

Part 6 – March 8, 2017 – April 1, 2017

So far, this disagreement with our landlord has used up 2.5 hours of hearing time in two hearings at the LTB. I'll keep a running tally. Our landlord's abuse of process has been expensive for the LTB. After the cluster-fornication trying to pay rent the previous day, my roomate asked me to handle it. So, [...]
