Former CAF Cpl renting out home that's experiencing many problems

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-scotia/kijiji-hobby-horse-farm-house-rental-kingston-nightmare-1.4112349

Once described as a Christian faith-based retreat, a Nova Scotia property now advertised on Kijiji as a "beautiful country spot" for rent has turned into a "complete nightmare" for a stream of tenants who allege they were swindled out of thousands of dollars.
The most recent ad to rent 471 Vault Rd. in Kingston, N.S., was placed April 26 and says the "5 Acres Horse Hobby Farm Century Home" is available for $1,250 a month.

"We are very selective in tenants as we have had horrible tenants," reads the ad, which features a handful of blurry interior photos.

But CBC News spoke to several people who say it was the other way around, and that their rental experiences went from dream to disaster in short order.

CBC News made several attempts to reach Lisa Smith, a former corporal in the Canadian Forces and the owner of the property, but she did not respond.

Lisa Smith is well known in the community; for all the wrong reasons.

I'm surprised she hasn't been chased out of the valley...

What does "a former corporal in the Canadian Forces" have to do with the situation at hand?

Well I suspect the media is trying to get as much info on this person as possible out in the public.  They posted all info they have including where she was featured in another article about the Lord's Ranch  mumbo jumbo stuff where she was identified as a member of the CAF.  It would seem she might be some sort of scammer so all info is pertinent.  Plus it may get them leads on more info.  It isn't uncommon to indicate someone's previous or current employment.

The address of the property in question is still listed as the "registered office address" of the Lord's Ranch mumbo-jumbo NFP corporation that is still in an active status. https://www.ic.gc.ca/app/scr/cc/CorporationsCanada/fdrlCrpDtls.html?corpId=7776853&V_TOKEN=1495561742535&crpNm=&crpNmbr=777685-3&bsNmbr=
