SERIOUS FLAWS, EXIST, WITH THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD. "WE HAVE OUR OWN RULES" SAYS ONE ADJUDICATOR, ESI A. CODJOE.
THIS BLOG IS ABOUT EXPOSING CORRUPTION AND HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE, IN CANADA. THIS MEANS THAT THE CANADIAN INSTITUTIONS, ALSO, WHICH HAS A PENCHANT FOR ABUSING THE RIGHTS OF THE COMMON PEOPLE, ARE ALSO EXPOSED HERE, ON THIS BLOG. THE FOCUS OF THIS ARTICLE IS ON THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD. WHICH ROUTINELY ACTS IN FAVOUR OF LANDLORDS AND WHICH IS ALSO A WELL KNOWN AND ESTABLISHED FACT. THAT BOARD HAS ALSO, RECENTLY, ACTED IN A CONSPIRACY AGAINST ME. AND FOR WHICH I WILL ALSO PROVIDE THE EVIDENCE OF THAT, IN THIS ARTICLE AS WELL. BUT THE FOCUS ON THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD, IS TO ALSO SHOW THAT CANADIAN OFFICIALS, ACT CORRUPTLY, AND MOST PARTICULARLY, IN AREAS OF THE LAW. MEANING, THAT, ONE CAN ALSO EXPECT THE COURT, THE TRIBUNALS, POLICE AND OTHERS WHO ENFORCE THE LAW, TO ACT CORRUPTLY. THIS IS A WELL KNOWN FACT.
TWO ADJUDICATORS, WHO ARE KNOWN TO ACT CORRUPTLY, AT THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD, ARE LOUISE HORTON AND ESI A. CODJOE, BOTH LAWYERS. YET THEY ALSO PREY ON THE TENANTS WHO APPEAR BEFORE THEM, RELYING ON THE FACT, THAT, MOST TENANTS DO NOT HAVE A FULL KNOWLEDGE OF THE LAW, AND HOW TO APPLY IT, IN ORDER TO PROTECT THEIR RIGHTS, BEFORE THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD. THEY ALSO ALLOW PARALEGALS, TO RUN AMUCK WITH THEIR SHENINGANS, AT THOSE HEARINGS. I HAVE ALSO ACCUSED BOTH OF THOSE AJUDICATORS, OF ACTING IN A CONSPIRACY AGAINST ME, WITH OTHER CANADIAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS. THIS WOULD ALSO EXPLAIN WHY, THEY BOTH DID NOT WANT TO HEAR MY EVIDENCE, AT THE HEARINGS AND ALSO MADE EVERY EFFORT TO SUPPRESS IT. INCLUDING CLAIMING THAT THE ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT, ALSO DID NOT WORK. OR THAT MY DEVICE WAS INCOMPATIBLE WITH THEIRS, AT THE BOARD (COMMENT OF ESI CODJOE), AND THEREFORE COULD NOT BE ACCEPTED. AND TO DISMISS MY (EMERGENCY) APPLICATIONS, AT THE PRELIMINARY STAGE, RATHER THAN TO HEAR IT. BECAUSE THE EVIDENCE WOULD ALSO HAVE BEEN TOO GREAT AGAINST THE LANDLORD. KIND OF LIKE A CROWN ATTORNEY, REFUSING TO PROCEED ON A CRIMINAL CHARGE AGAINST AN ACCUSED, IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE ACCUSED, THAT THEY ARE ALSO IN LEAGUE WITH. EVEN ON THE ADVICE OF THE COURT, TO DO SO. LIKEWISE THESE TWO ADJUDICATORS, WITH THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD, ACTS IN A SIMILAR MANNER, AND ESPECIALLY IF THERE IS ALSO A CONSPIRACY INVOLVED, WHICH WAS ALSO THE CASE.
THERE ARE SOME SERIOUS FLAWS, WITH THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD. THE HEARINGS ARE ALSO A MOCKERY TO THE RULES OF LAW. (Where they do not apply). RESULTING, IN SERIOUS LEGAL CONSEQUENSES. ACCORDING TO ONE ADJUDICATOR, ESI CODJOE, AT THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD, IN TORONTO. “We have our own rules”. This should also show how corrupt she is, because she is a lawyer and also know how important it is, to apply those rules of law, in order to protect one's rights. She has made this comment to this writer, who was also a litigant at the Landlord and Tenant Board on September 4th, in regards to her emergency application, to have her landlord restore her power. Esi Codjoe, who is also black, made it clear that she was also not going to hear the evidence of the tenant, me, which would have also substantiate her claim against the landlord, for cutting off her vital service, or electricity, in this case. Esi Codjoe, as the Adjudicator at that hearing, also claim that the equipment was broken, and that it could not play the dvd, containing the video evidence, against the landlord. She had the security guard claim that my dvd was also incompatible with the equipment, in the hearing room and cannot be played. Therefore my evidence against the landlords, could also not be included at the hearing. What hearing?. Since there was also no hearing, and as a result, my right to be heard, was also not upheld, or even respected by her. Or by the subsequent adjudicator, Louise Horton, on September 9th. At both stages of the hearing of my application, they were dismissed at the preliminary stage. That is, before an actual hearing, where all of the evidence could also be heard, the decision was made not to hear my emergency applications, (at the preliminary stage, of course brought up by the landlord's agent and paralegal) they were also dismissed. The ground according to him was that I was "abusing the process". An argument which I also had no chance to refute, with my video evidence, since it was not accepted at the hearing, for various and also ridiculous reasons. The first time was on September 4th, I had refused to continue with a hearing, when my evidence (videos) could also not be heard. It was also crucial for it to be heard, as it also contained the evidence against the landlords, including one of them cussing me out and also stating the reason for my power being disrupted. The evidence against the landlord was so explosive and also irrefutable, that neither Louise Horton, nor Esi Codjoe, as the adjudicators hearing that matter, on September 4th and also the 9th, also wanted that evidence included. The consequence of which they would have been forced to hear the video evidence against the landlords and therefore force to deal with the natural course of justice to follow.
FACT: THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD, ACT AGAINST TENANTS AND IN FAVOUR OF LANDLORDS. TENANTS NEITHER GETS THE COMPENSATIONS THAT THEY ARE ENTITLED TO, WHEN THEIR RIGHTS ARE VIOLATED BY A LANDLORD. NOR DO THE BOARD ALSO PENALIZED THE LANDLORDS, WITH ANY CONSIDERABLE FINES, IF AT ALL, ACCORDING TO THE EVIDENCE THAT ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FROM MOST TENANTS, AGAINST THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD. EVEN THE TENANT'S DUTY COUNSEL, AT THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD, WILL ALSO ADVISE THE TENANTS, NOT TO EXPECT ANY KIND OF COMPENSATION, THAT WOULD EVEN BE CONSIDERED JUST, UNDER THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES, FROM THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD. TO GET THAT KIND OF COMPENSATION, TENANTS ARE OFTEN ADVISED TO WITHDRAW THEIR APPLICATION, WITH THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD, AND TO TAKE THE MATTER TO THE COURT DIRECTLY. MANY TENANTS ALSO TAKE THIS ADVICE. IT IS SIMPLY NOT WORTH THE EFFORT FROM THE LANLDORD AND TENANT BOARD, WHEN YOU ALSO HAVE A LANDLORD FROM HELL. FOR ME, PERSONALLY, I HAVE ALSO SUFFERED PHYSICAL INJURY, FOR EXAMPLE TO MY HEARING, AS A RESULT OF MY LANLDORD'S ACTIONS, WHICH ONLY A CIVIL ACTION IN A COURT, CAN ALSO ADDRESS AT THIS STAGE. OTHER TENANTS HAS ALSO COMPLAINED TO ME, ABOUT LOSING THEIR PROPERTY, OR THAT IT WAS SO DAMAGED BY THE LANDLORD'S ACTIONS AND ALSO NOT RECEIVING ANY ADEQUATE COMPENSATION FROM THE BOARD. IN MOST CASES, ONLY A FEW HUNDRED DOLLARS.
AT THE BOARD, THERE ARE NO REAL DIRECTIONS, OR RULES OF LAW TO FOLLOW. EVERYTHING IS DONE AD HOC. PARALEGALS, WHO REPRESENTS THEIR CLIENTS, ALSO HAVE A FIELD DAY, AS THEY ALSO DO NOT HAVE TO ADHERE TO ANY RULES. WHAT YOU ALSO HAVE IS A SYSTEM THAT IS BROKEN. NOT FLAWED, BUT BROKEN. IN ORDER FOR TENANTS TO PROTECT THEIR RIGHTS, THEY MUST APPEAL THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD’S DECISIONS, THROUGH THE COURT. THEY WILL NEITHER GET THE MONETARY COMPENSATION THAT THEY DESERVE, OR HAVE THEIR MATTER PROCEEDED IN A MANNER, EVEN CLOSELY REPRESENTING THE RULES OF LAW. BOTH THE ADJUDICATORS AND ALSO THE PARALEGALS, WHO ARE SEEN MOSTLY AT THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD AND OTHER TRIBUNALS, SINCE THEY ALSO HAVE NO LEGAL JURISDICTION TO ACT IN A COURT, AT LEAST NOT IN THE APPEAL COURT. THEY CAN REPRESENT CLIENTS ON SOME SUMMARY MATTERS, INCLUDING TRAFIC TICKETS, ETC. BUT THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ACT AS A LEGAL COUNSEL IN A COURT. SO THEY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE TRIBUNALS, SUCH AS THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD. MAKING IT ALSO EXTREMELY DIFFICULT, FOR TENANTS TO PROTECT THEIR RIGHTS. TENANTS MUST THEN SEEK A RECOURSE THROUGH THE COURTS. LANDLORDS USE THE SERVICES OF PARALEGALS MORE OFTEN THAN TENANTS DO, BECAUSE THEY ARE CHEAPER THAN A LAWYER AND NO ONE IS REALLY WATCHING, HOW THEY CONDUCT THEMSELVES. AT LEAST NOT THE BOARD. AND WHERE THE COURT WILL POINT OUT AN ERROR, ON THE PART OF A LAWYER, OR TO CORRECT HIS CONDUCT, A POPULAR PARALEGAL AT THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD, CAN ACTUALLY DO WHATEVER HE WANTS, ONCE HE IS ON GOOD TERMS WITH THE BOARD. AND THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD WILL ALSO OVERLOOK THIS FACT, AND OFTEN DO.
WHEN COMPLAINTS ARE ALSO MADE AGAINST ADJUDICATORS AND MEMBERS OF THE LANDLORD AND TENANT BOARD, THE BOARD STILL KEEP THEM ON. THIS IS ALSO WHERE THE PROBLEM LIES, WITH THE BOARD. IF AN ADJUDICATOR ACTS CORRUPTLY AND NOT AT ALL IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE PUBLIC, THEY SHOULD BE REMOVED. THEY STAY ON IN MOST CASES, BECAUSE NO ONE EVER REPORTS ON THEIR ACTIONS, PUBLICLY. THIS MUST ALSO CHANGE.
