The false complaints to HPS continue, and police get even more hostile and bullying.
These guys don’t even follow their own rules…
The harassment escalates. The Stampers and Pollingtons begin involving other people not known to Marie or myself.
To this point there have been at least fifteen complaints to police (at least 8 from our landlord and his crew) resulting in 14 responses, and charges being laid in two cases (against Jeremy Stamper).
The tally is at 18 hours 45 minutes of hearing time at the LTB, in 14 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, and ne short appearance. Call it two hearings, 50 minutes of a judge’s time.
The cops are increasingly hostile.
Protesters paint “Defund the Police” in front of City Hall, Hamilton.
This brings the total tally to at least ten complaints to police (at least 6 from our landlord and his crew) resulting in 9 responses, and charges being laid in one case.
The cops in Canada are starting to riot too.
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.
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.
Tuesday April 3, 2017 – I called Agostino to try and make arrangements to pay the rent (AR 49). Not very productive. A phone call to Richard Pollington an hour later was made to clarify things to inform Richard (again) to contact me and not my roomate for anything to do with the unit, to …
This will NOT be a rant against an evil landlord. This blog will be a detailed example of how far a landlord can go without any real consequences, the lack of any real protection at all for tenants in Hamilton from a landlord who refuses to do repairs and who is willing to harass and intimidate a tenant into moving. It is a clear failure of Municipal Law Enforcement, the Landlord Tenant Board and HPS. This is an example of the general inability of our legal system to deal with “sociopathic” behavior that is extremely disturbing and affects quality of life for everyone. Badly. The most well-known example would be the current POTUS, Donald Trump (and I’m not certain that Trump is a “sociopath”, since I’ve never met the man. But his behavior closely mimics what one would expect from someone suffering from NPD.)
