Chapter 27 – September 3, 2017 to September 24, 2017

Once the party ended on September 2, 2017 it did not resume on Sunday, as I was concerned it would. On September 4, 2017 Richard Pollington Jr was outside his father’s door in the driveway as I approached the building. He said to me as I approached “Don’t be such a fuckin’ rat”. I did […]

Chapter 26 – August 11, 2017 to September 2, 2017

On August 12, 2017 The Pollingtons had a loud, drunken “family barbeque” all day and evening. A couple of requests to Richard Pollington to hold the noise down resulted in some verbal abuse (“Fuck off, looser. We can make as much noise as we want. It’s daytime. Only fucking welfare bums sleep all day, asshole.”) […]

Part 24 – August 10, 2017

Today’s hearing was for our landlord’s L2 application, based on the N5 Notices we’d been served on May 26, 2017 and July 20, 2017. The hearing recording is here: 2017-08-10 SOL-84218-17 Hearing Recording – Part 1 of 2.mp3 2017-08-10 SOL-84218-17 Hearing Recording – Part 2 of 2.mp3 There was a lot of skulduggery by Yahkni […]

Part 22 – August 2, 2017

The day before had been exhausting, but mercifully short. John was late again. At 10:57 am, there was a knock on our door. Here’s what happened. https://youtu.be/BhSHs4c80lo 2017-08-02 – Entry to Unit and Repairs and Bylaw Inspection Officer Woods wasn’t supposed to be there until the next day, or so I thought. It turns out […]

Part 21 – August 1, 2017

I didn’t bother to contact John’s paralegal about the Notice. It hadn’t done any good to this point. As usual, John was late. At 10:35 there was a knock on our door. I answered it. Here’s what happened: https://youtu.be/TBawJmxQhR4 2017-08-01 1040-1218 Rent is paid and Entry to unit and repairs We had to switch cameras […]

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 […]
