The Burnhamthorpe Cat Shelter;


This web-site will updated in the future.  If you would like to be notified of updates (and this page will be greatly added to),  please send me an e-mail to get on the update list:

As this is a large work, in progress, much of the detail work, the comments regarding the material post on this web-site, that will ease comprehension, will have to wait.

I would like to thank the volunteers who helped me put this web-site together, retyped news articles and those you supplied the historical material that recorded this most interesting issue.

The Cat Sanctuary on the Bird estate, that and other details of this struggle are not made up.  The way that the City and certain politicians, fought against those who were performing to the highest standard of humane treatment and care for animals, clearly shows where their hearts and mind are.  An important point, if you are thinking of becoming involved in animal issues in Mississauga, as the politicians responsible for this disgraceful episode are still in office.  Learn from history.

Some point form notes:

- Were the Stevenses or Lois (The Cat Lady), overboard animal lover?  You know the kind, can't have enough cats or dogs to the point they can not look after them?  NO.  Before people started to dumping loads of cats (kittens mostly), suddenly on them, a cat and dog was just fine thank you very much. They had a big house, there was a big need and lots of people to help fill it up.


*    It cost them their marriage.  They had married in 1983 and the divorce was started in 1991.  The stress of dealing with unreasonable politicians was too much.  Especially the humiliation heaped on Brain Stevens, who attended all the meetings and spoke at most.  He is educated man, an engineer, who appealed to Mississauga politicians with reason and got abuse in return.

*    Their privacy.  In fall 1983 cats, mostly kittens started to show up, in one case a bag of kittens was thrown off the Burnhamthorpe bridge.  1986 the work on the Cattery had begun.  An inquire was made to the City if such a building could be built and no problem was the answer.  From the fall of 1983 on more and more people showed up with cats or to adopt them.  Then when the City put the spot light on them, it was a near endless parade through their home.  Public speaking and if it was in front of our politicians, it would likely be abusive.  Like most people, the Stevens were not public people by nature.

*    The Stevenses sunk more then $40,000 of their own money into the repair and up keep of a City rental home.

*     More then $7,000 on a lawyer to defend the City's action that the City abandoned.


*     The City went against its own policy to not enforce by-laws unless there was a complaint.

*    The City first claimed it would take many tens of thousands to repair the Bird house to bring it up to City standards.  Then it was only $8,000 for repairs that the City had to do, were they done?  NO.  What work was done, was done by the Stevens and in one case, the repair to the garage was paid for by the City after a Stevens family member did the work.  If that work really needed to be done, to prevent the house from being condemned then why didn't the City either do the repairs or condemn the house????

 The City spent thousands on consultants to study the Stevens home (or the Bird house), more then haft what is was finally decided would make it safe to live in.  All totaled the money spent by City staff and high priced lawyers to try and remove the Stevens could easily have repaired the Bird house.  The house was safe, the City was just making up (lying) stories to fool people.   The City can't come out and said it was wrong after the studies, so the story became, the city was going to tear it down away.  What a brainless waste of money.  Mississauga City hall loves to carry on about how financially responsible the City is but here the City is saying the house has to come down no matter what.  As the consultants said the home was in good shape, contradicting City staff, the City had to come up with a new reason to stop the Stevens from running a cat shelter.  The City claimed they need the house demolished as they were going to build a Public Gardens.  To this day they have not even got a plan for the Public Garden and one of the reasons for the delay, was concern over the deer in the area.

In all this time the City has lost the services of the Stevens and their supports in dealing with homeless cats and the years of rent money the Stevens' were paying.  This is financial responsible?

*    It was reported in the newspapers, time and time again that the City was going to help this family relocate, did the City?  Lois Stevens was left without a husband, next to nothing in the way of money and no help from the City for a place to live!!   Hazel did what many men have done to unwanted wives in the past, kick them into the street to fend for themselves, with nothing.  If it was not for Lois's friends (and her own hard work), putting on a fund raising Bingo, she would not have not been able to afford a place to move into.

*    Is there a new shelter to replace the Cattery?  NO, of course not, that was just a Hazel political promise, designed to fool people into not supporting this issue.


*     Mississaugans saw that there was no end of money to be spent on stopping the efforts of good SAMARITANS but none for justice.

*    Hazel was one of the first female politicians and one who was very keen to try and prove the myth that women are naturally better managers then men, as they can resolve problems without conflict or argument.  To this day she measures her success by hiding disagreement to fool people into thinking her form of government is better.  In fact it can be said her self worth is tied to always presenting the image of an ordered government without  fighting, to the public.  Hazel's better way and her place in history.  So Hazel wants more then anything else to perpetuate this illusion, that her, female methods, make her better at problem solving and a manager.  Then David Culham starts to stand up for the constituents in his Ward and the City in general and openly disagreeing with the Boss Lady!   It is one thing to disagree with Big Boss lady but to expose her methods in details so people could learn from them???  That is a crime!!

There was another Councillor, Larry Taylor  and how by all intelligent accounts, he was shafted by Hazel for asking too many questions and not being one of Hazel's team.  The media accounts of this open conflict would last for years and Hazel doesn't forget.  Records show that in City Council our elected official were rude, abusive, insulting and often in attack mode against the members of the community when they spoke in Council chambers.  Intimidation can go along way.  Culham was a changed man after this fight, before he suddenly left politics, in 2000.  It is a sad day when even a Councillor can't fight City Hall or the person who runs City Hall.

What was shown to the world was the true face of Council.  When Mississaugans addressed Council or their elected politicians they were not met with the fine art of intellectual and reasonable debate and discussion.  No, they were subjected to attacks from a pack of predators who just didn't care how they get their way or won.  The crafty skills of a predator, wise in the ways of manipulation and deception.  And of course the insult or put down, often noted in the documents as City politicians weapon of choice.  It works wonders with those who have misplaced their trust and respect by blindly granting to politicians.  Great shock value.  Whatever the reason to get people to give up fighting, even leaving in total disgust is a acceptable victory.  Mississaugans were under the false idea they could deal with the issue without being sucked into the quicksand of politics, how wrong they were.

-    Another interesting point about this whole issue is how it played out.  City of Mississauga politicians, many of whom are still in power today, were petitioned by many very knowledgeable polite professionals and leaders in the animal care community.  By soft spoken seniors who can before City Council to reason with their elected officials.  Even the Councillor Culham, a veteran of public service and Council, was treated by fellow Councillors like the village idiot.  Councillors (Hazel's team), showed Mississaugans no respect and it was only when a lawyer was thrown in their face did they back down.

Often people say I am too assertive or confrontational to lead a group in Mississauga.  I must be so, only because I know how the City treats the public and how City Hall will misled me or dismiss our issues with falsehoods or other frivolous and vexatious reasons.  In this issue, I played no part at all, so it can't be said my methods contributed to the failure of reason or this cause.  The City of Mississauga politicians refused to listen to reason from the community, no mater how polite Mississaugans were.

The methods I am told to use, were used in the Cat Shelter issue, to little effect.  Based on this case, it appears I am being told how to fail and make it easy for politicians to sweep the issues under the rug.  To get on with something more important, like more development in Mississauga and less of Mother Nature.

- The one reason that comes up most often about the City shut down the Cat Shelter (after the Mayor appears hates animals), is that the Cat Shelter was in competition with the City animal control who were selling cats to the public.  The Cat Shelter was doing free adoptions.  The cats had all their shots, a medical exam, spay or neuter done before hand and were well looked after in the cattery.  All at no cost to the tax payers.  BUT they were in competition with a City service, that sold cats and dogs to the public!  And when the City is run like a business, who have to act like a business.     Eliminate the competition!  There is more then one way to close a Cat Shelter and in the end it was not for logical or reasonable reasons, it was just, that was the way the Mayor wanted it to be.

- Here is a rare picture taken of the Hazel McCallion and David Culham in a disagreement, taken with a special anthropomorphic lens.

- Who knows, maybe the Cat Shelter is something that Hazel is very proud of.  She proved she could destroy "do-gooders" in the community who opposed her will/rule, with only logical and reason on their side.  That she could effectively kill cats, often a pet that people care for and not lose any popularity.  Maybe she feels this was her finest hour.

Overall list of dates, documents and events

Newspaper articles
- This issue received lots of coverage over the years because so many people were involved and organizations that stood beside the Stevens' and the Cat Shelter.
- Editorials.
- Public notices in Newspapers.
- The editorials by Albert Atkins (in a different section), are truly a rare treat to read, their insight into the staged political performance that passes for just democratic process is exposed for the sham it was/is.  Well worth a read.
- Kenneth L Easton DVM - Veterinarian Extraordinary - Obituary.

- Includes letters to the Editor, letters to Government and letters to & from supporters.

Petitions & Public notices
- There are different versions.

City records
- City agenda's, minutes of meetings, reports. Includes (soon), the remarkable memo by Councilor Culham that all but calls City staff incompetent and filing a knowingly false report.

- The Cattery,  supporters  &  local wildlife of the Credit River valley.  If you have some to share, please let me know.

Due to the shear size of this issue, I have not had time to deal with the first person accounts.  So the story, for now, will be told through the documents of the day and they are quite the story tellers.

This is a work in progress, that depends on volunteers retyping and gathering records of this very interesting story - it will grow as time goes on - if you wish to help let me know.

Overall list of dates, documents and events;

An article that shows great insight into the politicians at Mississauga City hall and how cut-throat they are.  Likely one of the last written by John Stewart that was so revealing.   Hazel hates for the public to see open disagreement in her City hall and she will put an end to it any way she can.  Also, from what I heard about the last time Councillor Culham stood up to the Mayor, Hazel McCallion, in public or private.

Jul. 26, 1989                                Article    -    Mississauga News

News release from Mayor (Arthur Grannum, Executive Assistant to the Mayor), about clarifying the City's position regarding the Bird Estate. It state: "The decision to demolish was based on a staff report showing that the premises were in an unsafe and unacceptable condition."  It is important to understand that the Mayor and the Mayor's office are aware this is a falsehood, The City hired consultant and Councillor Culham have show this is a City created falsehood but still the Mayor pumps it out to the media who never challenge it.

It also talks about a new animal shelter to be built in Mississauga, along with a quote from the Mayor about the Ontario Humane Society "re-establishing a shelter".  Of course, to this day, it has not happened.
