Protesters paint “Defund the Police” in front of City Hall, Hamilton.
The tally is now at 20 hours 45 minutes of hearing time at the LTB, in 15 hearings, two by telephone, eleven in person (counting the Case Management Hearing and mediation session of May 19, 2017 as hearings). It has also used up 9 hours and 51 minutes of a mediator’s time. On the criminal side, it has used up whatever time the pre-enquete hearing used when process was issued on Pollington’s private complaint (call it one hearing, 45 minutes) and one short appearance (5 minutes) for a total of 50 minutes of a judge’s time. There have been at least eleven complaints to police (at least 6 from our landlord and his crew) resulting in 10 responses, and charges being laid in one case. Municipal Law Enforcement had also expended approximately 5 man-days (including two man days expended sitting in an LTB waiting room, waiting to be called as witnesses).
There has also been in excess of twenty five days of entry to the unit to “repair” or “inspect”.
The bedroom ceiling is repaired, slowly.
My bedroom ceiling collapses. The harassment continues.
The harassment by Pollington and the Stampers continue, and our landlords pile on the vexatious litigation.
Pollington acts more and more like a lunatic. The Stampers join in on the bullying and harassment. Our landlord hires a new paralegal. Hamilton police ignore crimes recorded on video, and become more and more agressive and less able to accurately and completely record events.
The harassment continues, escalating before the LTB merits hearing scheduled for September 24, 2018.
Agostino conducts some repairs. We find bedbugs in the unit, which begins a lengthy series of treatments, complicated by our landlords’ refusal to communicate with us.
Pollington continues his bad behavior, and Jeremy Stamper and friends are loud and obnoxious around the building. A complaint to the landlord goes nowhere. We tell Agostino that if he brings Richard to our door to collect rent, we won’t even open the door.
This hearing used up 45 minutes of two members time, for a total of 90 minutes of hearing time.
So far, this disagreement with our landlord had used up 9 hours 40 minutes of hearing time at the LTB, in 9 hearings, two by telephone, seven 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.
