Accusations of Racism Against Stella Reddy By Tenants

In light of the accusations made against me by the Tenant Bullies, I wanted to address this matter and clarify my thoughts on it.

Since these accusations were made, I have reflected on the possibility of having an unconscious bias against these tenants, as well as the severe gaslighting about me being a liar. However, I have realized that I do not hold any bias against them. I am confident in my own beliefs and integrity.

I want to clarify that there was never any form of racism or discrimination involved in my actions as Building Staff. My decisions were solely based on the fact that the tenants of 303 continuously violated the rules regarding entry for repairs and inspections from July 2016 to the filing for a hearing in August 2017.

These tenants explicitly denied entry through emails, and letters, and even stated it in their own words at the Landlord and Tenant Board. Consequently, they were evicted since their strong opposition to allowing entry made the Adjudicator believe they would not comply with any order. Their actions brought about their own eviction.

I have always treated every person, whether they were tenants or prospective tenants, equally and without any bias. It never mattered to me what their name, race, or language was. All I cared about was whether they respected the rules, their neighbours, and the property. As long as they abided by those principles, I had no issues with them.

The thoughts and motivations displayed on stellareddy.com are purely based on the writer’s perspective and not an accurate portrayal of who I am. These Bullies’ thoughts are distorted by their own minds and personal feelings toward me.

Allow me to share some information from the fact sheet provided by the Ontario Human Rights Commission. Discrimination is defined as a distinction, conduct, or action, whether intentional or not, that is based on a person’s race and has the effect of imposing burdens on an individual or group, limiting their access to benefits available to others.

Regarding the Tenant Bullies, the “distinction, conduct or action” was my filing with the Landlord and Tenant Board for a hearing in September 2017, which ultimately led to their eviction and indeed “imposed a burden on the individual.”

However, it is important to note that this action was also taken against other tenants who received the same N5 notice on that property. Therefore, it did not withhold or limit access to benefits available to other members of society. I did my job and enforced the rules with all Tenants.

For every Notice of Entry, I made sure to include the rules at the bottom, as well as the contact information for the Landlord and Tenant Board. I even provided them with the number and address of the Scarborough Legal Clinic, which was another avenue for accessing the benefits available to them. As I did these things, it shows there was no reprisal against them for picking up for themselves. Not my fault they based their accusations on their feelings and not on facts.

They claim this distinction, conduct or action  was based on race. If that is the case, why was every letter, email, and Form N5’s given to them, all state they were refusing access for repairs and inspections, that they admit to doing?

How do they figure their persistent refusals of access play in this scenario? Do these Tenant Bullies think their refusing access for over a year not a good reason to take a tenant to the LTB? 

As it states, discrimination is a distinction, conduct or action, done by someone just towards them, no one else, that withholds or limits their access to benefits available to others in the same position in society. 

For this to be true, it would mean I ONLY gave these tenants Forms from the LTB, no other tenants living in the property got those forms, and I never filed on any other tenant for a hearing. 

Toxic Adult Bullies have never provided any evidence of racial discrimination on my part. They just say it occurred. There is no factual basis for their accusations, as is evident from the documents they provided. Additionally, they had access to the same benefits and support as anyone else in their position. They actively utilized legal avenues such as the Landlord and Tenant Board, the Divisional Court of Appeal, and HRTO to address their concerns. This demonstrates that they had equal access to resources available to them.

I find it challenging to discuss possible scenarios, as this situation is based solely on facts, from my perspective. The undeniable truth is that they repeatedly denied access, regardless of the reason, as can be seen in their own letters and emails. Consequently, they broke the rules and were subsequently evicted.

Racism promotes the belief that one group is superior to others, and I firmly reject this ideology. I was raised to treat every individual equally, regardless of their background. While I understand that these Tenant Bullies may have experienced racism, they had no right to accuse me of such behaviour. Their accusations seem to be an attempt to target me out of revenge, baselessly playing the race card.

The Tenant Bullies had an entire year to fabricate a prior meeting at a closed restaurant, from August 31, 2016, to September 26, 2017. The letter they initially sent lacked any details provided later on September 26, 2017. The numerous discrepancies in their claims can no longer be dismissed as mere gaslighting. Frankly, I am done with this entire ordeal.

Having lived and worked in Ontario apartment buildings for 18 years, I can confidently say that if I held the ideologies these Bullies accuse me of, I would not have lasted that long in the Property Management industry. This is a clear example of how gaslighting can distort reality.

Their constant hypersensitivity to every word and action I took frustrated me, as anyone would be naturally affected. It became a continuous headache trying to gain access to the apartment for necessary tasks. Eventually, I reached a point where it was no longer worth my efforts.

Why should I subject myself to verbal abuse? There was no need for me to tolerate such behaviour. Every decision I made during my job was based on tenants breaking the rules of apartment living, just like countless others do every day.

Should individuals in public service positions have to worry about false accusations from interracial couples/tenants simply because they do not conform to their desired approach? Is it acceptable for anyone to endure this kind of mistreatment online?

It is truly disheartening when a tenant behaves in such a manner. Even after losing all their legal battles, they continued posting unfounded allegations against me on various websites for over 7 years.

Only when I created my own website, which they could not get removed through lies, did they suddenly remove those offensive sites. It took moving over 3000 km away and alerting internet companies about identity fraud using my name, specifically stella reddy with stellareddy.com, to finally put an end to the abuse on platforms like LinkedIn.

The truth exposing the tactics used in their Smear Campaign clearly reveals the extent to which this situation became warped, all because a tenant refused to take responsibility for denying access, even when they admitted to doing so. Toxic Adult Bullies see this as a game, deriving pleasure from playing with my emotions.

It saddens me deeply that there are individuals in the world who go out of their way to cause harm to complete strangers, as these Tenant Bullies have done. We urgently need effective measures to address such situations without placing an overwhelming emotional burden on the victims, especially when they have already endured countless bullying tactics.

Every person in Ontario has the right to be free from racial discrimination and harassment in the social areas of employment, services, goods, facilities, housing accommodation, contracts and membership in trade and vocational associations.

There is no fixed definition of racial discrimination.  However, it has been described as any distinction, conduct or action, whether intentional or not, but based on a person’s race, which has the effect of imposing burdens on an individual or group, not imposed upon others or which withholds or limits access to benefits available to other members of society.  Race need only be a factor for racial discrimination to have occurred.

Racism is a wider phenomenon than racial discrimination.  While the Code seeks to combat racism through public education and the advancement of human rights, not every manifestation of racism can be dealt with through the current human rights complaint mechanism and process. Nevertheless, racism plays a major role in fostering racial discrimination.

Racism is an ideology that either directly or indirectly asserts that one group is inherently superior to others.  It can be openly displayed in racial jokes and slurs or hate crimes but it can be more deeply rooted in attitudes, values and stereotypical beliefs.  In some cases, these are unconsciously held and have become deeply embedded in systems and institutions that have evolved over time. Racism operates at a number of levels, in particular, individual, systemic and societal.
