Stella Reddy: Final Thoughts On HRTO

39400892f1bb1bb79eb93d67b9859429

 

Below, I share with you my document I did for HRTO for the Summary Hearing request I did October 6, 2018, as I was done with the mess this became. I was in the middle of so many emotions caused by this and I was feeling suicidal and just wanted it OVER!

Yes, I had help writing this, as I wasn’t thinking as straight as this document implies… It was a Summery Hearing Request I did, hoping that HRTO would try and speed things up a bit, but it didn’t work. The hearing wasn’t scheduled till almost a year later, in August 2019.

I didn’t have anything to do with their decision to hold a Teleconference, rather than a in person hearing in January, not like Kory Read implied I did. I guess they knew Kory Read wouldn’t show anyway and didn’t want to waste their time reserving a court room for it. I knew they wouldn’t show up, in person or not. All throughout this process, Kory & Allison Read didn’t follow the rules. They didn’t even do their required replies in a timely manner, just kept looking for delays, as they knew they lied about all of it. You can’t prove something that didn’t happen! They were wasting time… Their many Form 10’s they sent from Sept -Oct 2019, proved that. Imagine, asking for a Delay again, hoping to put off the hearing even longer, just to drag it out.

This was even before stellareddy.com came online, there was only 859kennedroad.com then. I laid out the facts here and they haven’t changed, in all these years. Some of my dates are little messed up, but I can accept that, as I was a mess.

Kory & Allison Read have shown, they don’t like to follow rules laid out by other people. This is also shown in Kory Read lack of employment for other companies, like the plane refueling course he did and job they offered him afterwards; and history of self-employment projects he starts’, like RhinoLife Fitness which was also a after school program for kids he had in the past, he took most of the pictures he had for that site to use for the new one, playlearnhavefun.com; the Bird and Worm Web design; Nibblio Management for wedding planning, even Bahodii.com, which was also the same. There is the DJNotNice for being a music DJ and his new one of djlilxtra.com. So many starts and stops… There was also the Lyft and Uber driving he did for a very short time. Even before all this that I saw while I lived there, I found a picture on social media of him in a security uniform and in his document he claims to have worked as a Building “Super Attandant”, and even says he worked with fires at one point. So many different employment opportunities that Kory Read has claimed to have had! At least, Allison Read was smart and went to school and even got a job, until the pandemic shut all event planning down. I hope she is working now, as Medical School is very expensive, let alone just living these days. Prices are going up, for everything, and they still have kids at home!

So many times Kory Read tries to tell you what I did during my employment there was wrong. I didn’t knock on their door to give him Notices in his hand, I made him wait around all day for me to show up, though I gave him a 3 hour window, as required. Why would I take career advice from someone who don’t have a job he can maintain for any length of time? 

Why would I take any advice, over any situation, from a man who went out of his way to make up lies about another to try and hide from his own actions?

Kory Read is a coward and I have no shame in saying that either, as he shows it by remaining Anonymous on all his domains! Why hide his ownership of all that? Isn’t that what he taunted me about all the time, to take ownership of what I say? Why don’t he take his own advice and take ownership of all his nasty domains? 

It isn’t my problem Kory Read isn’t man enough to admit to his actions of refusing entry that caused them to be evicted, He stood there at the hearing and said it in his own words.

Kory & Allison Read made such a mess of things, especially this HRTO process. They did all they could to confuse the issue, but they could not. The truth shined bright out of the chaos they created. 

The truth is that any person, let alone a Tenant, will not keep such alleged allegations of racism and discrimination they claim I shown to them, for 2 1/2 months.

That is where Kory & Allison Read made their BIG mistake, claiming to have kept all that to themselves all that time, even when I gave them a form N5 for refusing access, they still didn’t file any complaint, with any agency? Even the letter in Aug 2016, didn’t ask for any investigation, they tell us to leave them alone. That is also their mistake. If they had actual complaints they could file against me, he would have done it long before they did. 

After everything I have learned, I am surprised HRTO even accepted their applications!


October 6, 2018.

Summery Hearing

The basis of the applicant’s complaints is that Alto Properties Inc. enforced their rights to avail of the Landlord and Tenant Board process of eviction over their consistent refusal of access to the apartment for repairs. It was only after issues of entry from July 2016 – end of August 2016 that the applicants made reference to any claims of violations to their human rights by anyone in the email that was received August 31, 2016. This is shown in the evidence submitted by the applicants in their own Statement of Facts.  Even this email on August 31, 2016 does not give specifics on this alleged meeting and the applicants did not request any investigation, just vented their nasty opinions and told us to leave them alone, which we did.  All was quiet for a year until September 22, 2017, when I received a completed work order for bathroom ceiling repairs, and I issued entry for Sept 24, 2017 and attended the apartment once again to access repairs that day and was once again refused entry, that the applicants were given another form N5 for this refusal and it was sent to the LTB for their process of eviction. I also completed and submitted online Sept 24, 2017 my own application with Human Rights against them, File # 2017-08-24-17-30-08948 that was dismissed in March 2018 sometime for the false allegations of racism they level at me during this time. I didn’t receive any letter that was sent out for this, as I noted in email in May 2018.

The applicant’s application is based solely on their own personal opinions and suppositions, not on any actual facts they can prove. There is no proof they can provide, as their allegations of violations of their human rights didn’t actually happen. The applicants are going on the belief that if they claim what they say is true, then it has to be true, whether they can prove it or not. They have the belief that all they have to do is say I am a racist and prejudice enough times that people will accept it as the truth, even without proof.

The applicants wanted to control entry for every reason needed and if they didn’t agree, like with the Fire Inspection that was held Oct 2017, with why we were entering, they wanted to be able to say we were not allowed to enter and that we would have no choice than to accept it.  In the email send by the applicants to this entry, the applicant states that as the building staff replaced batteries in their smoke detector in June 2015 there was no need for Mircom Guardia to enter to do it once again and they were refusing entry. As I explained that the building staff are not certified Fire Protection and that Mircom is under contract for the yearly Fire Inspection, it was required for them to check it that entry was granted. When entry was gained it was noticed that the smoke detector was disconnected by the applicants. They refuse to accept that it was their behaviour of consistently refusing access that caused them to receive a Form N5, as no one can give these forms to a tenant for no reason. If the Residential Tenancies Act did not allow the owners to avail of these forms to look after their rights, what’s the sense of having them there for use? If the owners were expected to always work with tenants over the times they allow entry it would end up a mess. The applicants are claiming that the giving of this form was not for the refusal of access they admitted to doing, but due to my racist and prejudice views of them. If the applicant’s claims were true, and I was a racist and prejudiced against them, the LTB would not have accepted the Form N5’s and the eviction would not have been granted.

The majority of the complaints the applicants complain about in their Statement of Facts are procedural in nature over how the property is operated and has nothing to do with Human Rights Code violations. Items like parking spaces, what other tenants do and have in their tenancy, are none of these tenants concerns and how the management deals with these others tenants is also none of the applicants concern and has no place in human rights code violations. These procedures are common across all apartment buildings in Ontario and enforced by RentSafeTO since the summer of 2017 as well as other agencies such as Fire Code.

  • It is not a Human Rights code violation to not work with tenants over entry times to the apartment when needed;
  • there is no code violations in giving Form N5’s to tenants for their behaviour that is interfering in the rights of the property owners;
  • there is no code violations over taking a tenant to the LTB for their process of eviction over these Form N5’s when the tenants still refuse to comply.

The provisions of the RTA in allowing landlords to give Notice of Entry with a time frame for entry was made just for these issues with tenants on entry to the apartments and give procedures to follow when tenants refuse to comply to the rules.

  • Inconveniences to tenants with rescheduled contractor appointments and inconveniences to tenants over entry times, is not against the Human Rights Code.
  • There is also no code violation to charge a tenant rent on parking spaces nor is it against any rules to not allow tenants to park in Visitors parking area when they refuse to pay for parking.

All letters, notices, and emails sent to the applicants were professional and only contained information on the rules and regulations set out by other agencies for residential apartment living and decisions made by the property management that fit with the rules. As there are various agencies and rules we have to follow it is also our responsibility to ensure the tenants are also aware of the rules and follow them. If we didn’t follow procedures for issues that come up in an apartment building it would be chaos and unorganized and no business can run like that. If we had to arrange contractors around the entry times allowed by tenants, repairs would not get done in a timely manner as required and the staffs work hours would become too erratic.

It was due to the refusal of entries when asked that the repairs are not done in this apartment. Even though this is a business that supplies people a place to live, it is still a business and is required to be operated as one. The running of an apartment building does not automatically lead to violations against the human rights code for tenants yet the Statement of Facts submitted by the applicants claim all procedures I did in my job went against their human rights. Where is the proof of any of this?

Example of RTA violations by the applicants: there are provisions in the RTA that state a tenant cannot deduct any funds from rent for any reason, yet in these papers the applicants state they will deduct funds from the rent the cost of any parking tickets they may receive for parking in Visitors area, and they already deducted funds from the rent for a toaster oven. As the applicants don’t agree with these provisions in the RTA, they believe they don’t need to follow them, so they don’t. They think they can make their own judgement over deducting funds from rent and did so with no regard for the actual rules.

It is the same with entry to the apartment and the parking areas. The applicants believe that they should be able to say who enters the apartment, and when, so go on that belief and once the owners and management refused to allow that, the applicants came up with this story of racism against everyone as a way to distract from their own actions.

Same with the parking, they refused to pay for parking like everyone else and therefore decided they would park in Visitors for free and have no concerns over how it affects anyone else, including the owners, and are basically threatening the owners with rent deductions for enforcing their rights. The RTA also provides that as long as notice of entry is given for a valid reason and time, a tenant cannot refuse access to the landlord to do repairs or inspect the apartment, yet they consistently did so.  These acts of defying the rules and regulations is proof of the applicant’s own duplicity that they have shown throughout this whole process. 

Delay:

As noted in the CAD received March 8, 2019 the applicants Statement of Facts begin June 2015, which is well beyond the limitation period. Also to be noted, they make no claim of filing any official written complaint to the office for the apartment building for property owners alleging any issues named in this application at any time, in these Statement of Facts. Even if the applicants were able to explain the delay in filing back then for any code violations they perceived, this action should then also be prejudice as the previous staff were not named as respondents and therefore this information cannot be included.

The applicants have also not provided any confirmation that they complained to the property owners of the building about any alleged transgressions committed by the previous staff.

Another point I would like to make in delay in filing, even if the above was met and the Tribunal allowed the application, is that the applicants claim, on all their submissions including the website they made, that I allegedly, at some point in June 2016 as no exact date is given, (which I have to stress is before I moved into the building to work here) that I went up to them in a public place and asked Ms. Read “where she was from”, made statements of how I am a “Canadian” and that I have “worked as a Superintendent for 16 yrs in Canada” and that I called her children “mulatto”.

If this alleged conversation was so stressful and upsetting, why did they not file a complaint with anyone as soon as they got home? Especially to the property owners of the building, as the applicants state I did tell them I was to be new staff that would be moving into the building they lived in during this alleged meeting, as by doing so this allegation could have been investigated right then and they could possibly have prevented themselves from going through everything else they have alleged against me since. Instead, they mention this alleged previous conversation in very general terms in the email received August 31, 2017 that you have, which is 3 months later, and only after all the issues we had with entry for repairs and pest control. It is very suspicious why this alleged prior meeting wasn’t mentioned before this by either of them, especially if this alleged meeting was so stressful and they had to deal with me during those 3 months.  I also would like to stress that the applicants made no such reference to any allegations of any previous meeting or conversations at no time during that 3 months. I KNOW this alleged conversation they are claiming at some restaurant DID NOT HAPPEN at all. At no time did I say ANY of the words the applicants claim I did.

As noted in the application, the applicants claim the last incident of code violation was June 2, 2018 but I see no violation in the action of asking about the rent payment shortfall and reminding the applicants of the cancelled rental payment from October 2017.  I see no code violations in any submissions by the applicants. It is common practice for any business to ask why a payment was not the amount expected. This is standard procedure for any rental payment shortfall received from a tenant and rent collection was part of my duties. As there was no direction received with the short rental payment, just the short payment was made, it is reasonable to ask why, which I believe was worded professionally and politely. It was only after they received this email they realized that the email they did with the explanation did not go through as Ms. Read had issues with her email. It was within my duties to ask why they paid short rent and is not violating any code grounds. If the action of asking a person why they paid less for the service you provide to them is considered violations of human rights, companies would go bankrupt.

Another Proceeding: Landlord and Tenant Board

As submitted to you, there was a hearing scheduled for October 31, 2017 based on the application submitted by the applicants alleging the same issues in this application, the perceived harassment, prejudices and racism they claim they received from all the respondents and when called before the adjudicator, the applicants dismissed their application of their own choice, as noted in the copy you have.  As they chose to cancel when all parties were in attendance ready and able to proceed, they forfeited their opportunity to have these issues heard before any tribunal.

The hearing held Sept 26, 2017 was adjudicated and Order received for consistent refusal of access for repairs.. Applicants initially filed an appeal, as noted in their Reply, and on the website they made, www.859kennedyroad.com , as they hoped this appeal would give them the opportunity to confront me over their allegations and offer them a higher judicial forum in which to layout their claims against us. It was only when the applicants learned they could not do as they hoped at Divisional Court, they filed these claims with HRTO.  The applicants went from one judicial system to another when they realized that the first wouldn’t give them what they wanted, the chance to attack me and accuse me of this racism. It was also after my own application with Human Rights that I filed against them on August 24, 2017 was dismissed for delay file # 2017-08-24-17-30-08948 that they filed this claim. As my application didn’t have Mr. Read proper info, as there is no such information in the tenant file,  the applicants so kindly submitted this as well in their reply, I went by what was on the application for the apartment, which I have since learned some of it is false. Since they filed this claim, I have done everything required and asked of me to show these claims of theirs is all lies and did not happen.

While I appreciate I wasn’t at my best during this hearing, when hearing details their accusations for the first time and accept that I did say my nephew was as black as you can get and that he was darker than Ms. Read. If you listen to the audio copy of the hearing that the applicants have on this website, www.859kennedyroad.com, and the transcript they provide to you, will also show, I specifically asked the applicants if they have any proof that I actually said these things they are accusing me of, and you can clearly hear Mr. Read say “NO”. I took this to mean that the applicants have no actual proof that this alleged conversation and meeting actually took place as they claim it did where he makes claims I said these bad things at some restaurant. As this question and answer took place during this hearing and is noted for the record, if the applicants now all of a sudden have acquired any evidence to prove their allegations, I would question it.  These words came out of my mouth upon hearing more details for the first time about this alleged meeting they claim we had at some restaurant and anyone listening to the recording, and reading the transcript, can tell I was shocked and surprised. The adjudicator saw my reaction and knew it was a spontaneous gut reaction to what I was hearing and that these claims by the applicants were shocking me to the point it made me incoherent. I do admit these words and the way they were said did not make much sense and it was due to the shock of hearing what I did from these people. What I said was inappropriate and I have admitted as much. Seems the applicants have taken these words I said and have blown them out of proportion, even going to the point of making polls on Facebook, as proof that I am a racist person. We did receive the paperwork with their application for the hearing dated Oct 31, 2017 that same day, as they signed a Certificate of Service at the LTB office that same day showing it was given to us. While Mr. Read tried to say he was forced to give us his documents during the hearing, they were given to us before we went to the hearing room that morning and I didn’t even get a chance to look at it until after I returned back to the building. I didn’t see more details of their accusations until I got the chance to read that. It is also included in the website, www.859kennedyroad.com at the bottom. It is in their application they filed against the company and myself. This is the application they cancelled when before the adjudicator Oct 31, 2017 that they posted on their website. As I asked then if they had proof of what they are accusing me of and they admitted they did not, I do not see how they can now get any evidence after all this time.

Reprisal:

There is no evidence to support that myself nor the property owners tried to prevent the applicants from applying to any agency about any of their rights. The applicants have submitted to you various letters, emails, and notices I issued during my job duties here that all include information for the tenants to look up what I am stating for themselves and it included the telephone number for the LTB, even the Notices of Entry has the rule on the bottom. I even included emails from contractors I received so they could contact them for themselves if they wished to find out why appointments were rescheduled, same for Pest Control. There is even one email where I gave the applicants the name and contact information for the Scarborough Legal Clinic for them to call for advice, as they seemed to not want to believe anything I said or gave about RTA rules. I always gave the applicants information they could use to investigate what I am saying and in no way did I try to stop them from accessing any one for help. You even have emails from David Strashin where he offers free advice to the applicants but they respond telling him they don’t need his advice and proceed to call him names. There is no evidence to support their fear of reprisal for standing up for themselves either with human rights or with their tenancy. They had ample information that was provided by me to call others to verify what I was doing in my job.

I submit this application is vexatious and only done as retribution for issuing and going ahead with an eviction based on the tenants consistent refusal of access for repairs. They made up this story of racism and a previous meeting between us as a way to distract others from their actions. If I had done as they claim, I am sure they would have said something sooner, way before their claims in August 2016 and especially when they finally did file their complaint on June 2, 2018.  To now claim they felt intimidated won’t wash as they have had no problem speaking up for their rights and getting at anyone who goes against them, even strangers as shown by comments from Mr. Read to someone on one of the Facebook posts that you have. You will see a poll and a comment made by someone about the poll and Mr. Read attacks him about his comment.

I know that if I had backed down and given in to the applicants demands for entry for these repairs, we would now not be in this position. It is only due to the fact that I stuck to the rules and procedures under the RTA and LTB, basically I did my job, which I now find myself in this position. The website, www.859kennedyroad.com, the various Facebook posts and polls, were also done in retribution for the eviction and asked other people to comment to us about what they claim we did. The attempts to start a Tenant Association in the building was a way for them to spread these lies to the other tenants here and in the hopes of finding others willing to work with them to have me fired, as I have documents for this Tenant Association that I submitted to you, showing what their agenda was.  As they noted on the website, “it could be nothing else as we have NEVER been late on paying our rent”. They are telling people that there was no other reason they were evicted, other than our discrimination and prejudices against them, and only them, as they do not mention they refused entry numerous times, though people can see it if they read through everything and listen to the recording he shares on there. This website has paperwork issued by the LTB that holds various personal information including names, addresses and telephone numbers and the applicants also include personal information on the page itself. There is enough information on their website that someone could steal my identity if they wished. The applicants have gone out of their way to make every aspect of their accusations, which have yet to be proven by them to anyone, very public. By posting all this information on the internet, he is exposing everyone to ridicule, including their minor children, as it is easy to trace their children also back to them through social media. In their endeavours to expose me for what they say I am, the applicants have also exposed themselves and have gone out of their way to also try and access mine and my family’s social media, as shown by the pictures he took from my niece’s site and of myself and the requests I received from him from another email to grant access. He hid his real identity to try and access our social media, did it through one of the other websites he owns, Bird and Worm web design and some Nubbilo Event Management site.

I submit that this application, as well as the Appeal to Divisional Court, were submitted for the sole purpose of Reprisal against myself and the property owners for picking up for the landlord’s rights of entry to complete repairs to the apartment through process of the Landlord and Tenant Board. These applications were brought against us for enforcing the rights of entry to the apartment and the lies they perpetuated against me of racism and prejudice was fabricated in order to give them something to come back at me with to try and hide their own behaviour. The lies about me are a smoke screen for their own actions and as a way to detract the focus from them onto me. This behaviour is noted throughout the applicant’s paperwork. I say anything against them, and I am attacked for something else and they totally ignore their own behaviour.

Please whatever you do, hold the applicants accountable for their actions with this website, www.859kennedyroad.com and the Facebook posts as well as all the other incidents where they discriminate against others in their paperwork. They called the adjudicator from the LTB “ghetto”, labelled all people dressed “sloppy/bummy” as from Hamilton, and tried to pressure other tenants into telling lies over interactions with me that did not happen. As he discusses in text in his paperwork, he tried to pressure 203 into confronting me over something that he claims I did, but did not.  These tenants refused to lie about incidents that didn’t happen, which is why these applicants filed on their own and are the only one who made any claims against me.

If I was an actual racist person I am sure the applicants would not have had any trouble finding any other tenants, past or present, whom feels I also violated their human rights and would have worked with them against me. As they have no proof of their claims, as there was no previous meeting and there was no racism or discrimination against them by anyone, please dismiss this application and make them accountable for their own discrimination and harassment against others they wrote in here. As you are aware, these false allegations made by the applicants have caused me undue mental health issues and I went into psychosis on July 4, 2018 when once again the applicants sent an email to the property owners in an attempt to embarrass me. I quit my job that day and have been in extensive counselling and are on various medications for the severe depression, anxiety and PTSD symptoms I have been experiencing since. I have spent the past 9 months living in fear of more retaliation from the applicants online and in person and as a result avoid leaving my apartment in case I run into them or anyone else whom may make nasty comments over their allegations.
