I don't know who lives in the cottage at 4995 Prince of Wales, NDG, Montreal, but the people who live there probably don't know that they don't have the right to be there.
The property - our family home for decades - belonged to my father, George Rubin since the 1950's when it was built. My father died in the summer of 2000. His will left all his estate to my mother, Leona Feldman, and following her passing, his will leaves everything to his children and grandchildren - in equal parts - each child specifically named in his will.
Then what happened?
I was attacked and robbed in my home at that address on October 7, 1996.
The thief, Dawn McSweeney stole everything I worked for all my life. When I called 911 for help, the Montreal Police removed me, physically, from my home - without any legal procedure or justification - leaving all my most precious possessions and the lives of my aged parents completely under the control of Dawn McSweeney and those she calls her "partners in crime."
Subsequently, my mother was removed from home and kept in total isolation by this same group for a decade until her death in 2007.
The Montreal Police refused repeatedly to take any legal action or to do any serious investigation.
Two years before my mother died in 2005, a stranger named Kenneth Gregoire Prud'homme, made a will in my mother's name, omitting all my father's heirs and naming Debbie McSweeney and Dawn McSweeney as the sole beneficiaries of my father's home and all his life's savings.
This same Prud'homme named himself - a man who could never have met my father who died years earlier - liquidator of his estate.
The official at the City of Montreal Court House archives told me that MY MOTHER DID NOT SIGN THE WILL made in her name. I asked her several times to explain. She repeated that my mother did not sign the will made in her name. The will does not have my mother's signature. See details below.
Through all this, from October 7, 1996 to this day, September 9, 2014, the Montreal Police have refused to take any legal action to recover what was stolen by these criminals.
So whoever bought our home at 4995 Prince of Wales, NDG, Montreal, bought it from someone who had no right to it, no right to sell it - because it still belongs to my father's heirs, specifically identified in his will.
