I'm Canadian, eh
This site is under constant construction.
It was a Thursday, mid-February 1995. That's the day the lawyers quit, with the trial scheduled for the following Monday morning.
You see, I was suing a lawyer.
Under some pressure to provide an explanation for the bomb-shell they dropped in my lap, one of the lawyers, Marvin explained, "People talk -- other lawyers talk"...
It was their intention to withhold my file, "prejudicing my ability to proceed with a matter that was already set to go before the courts" -- unless I paid them over 14,000 dollars for the work they agreed to do, but didn't do, and admittedly never had any intention of doing.
"Do whatever you will", I replied, " but I''m putting it all up on the internet".
A nervous tone crept over Marvin as he confessed that I do so have the right to do so.
So much time and so many events, so many changes have occurred since publishing those "first six pages", finally, by the winter of 1997. (Merry Christmas, eh! :-)
By the winter of 1999, I had coined and registered the domain name, "WWW.OURCOURTSSUCK.COM"
Then came September 11, 2001, seemingly surreal. As this horrifying event unfolded, it dwarfed all other concerns to ever impact humanity, on a global scale.
And to drive the magnitude of the horror of this autrocity deep into the consciousness of all of us, it was re-played incessantly on all of our western-based news channels. Every day, for months and months we watched the images of those buildings flawlessly free-fall into their own foot-print, exactly like a controlled demolition.
To think that it was merely a catalyst to launch multiple massive multi-national military campaigns, "pre-emptively", in utter defiance of the decision of the Assembly of the Unitied Nations., all justified by groundless claims over "weapons of mass destruction". It only serves to compound that sense of the surreal, until one considers what General Smedley Butler had to say about it:
Since then, it has taken a massive global economic hemorage: a global fraud scheme, really, where the crooks got "bailed out", on top of their booty, to awaken and rile the masses in the wake of criminally-contrived mortgage crises that have left many home-owners "under water" and too many families homeless.
As a result, there's a growing movement of displaced and distressed citizens across the North American continent converging to occupy and reclaim our common place. We gather in increasing numbers to oppose this elitist hegemony of corporate profiteers, high financiers and outright war criminals, all making a killing off of the promulgation, advancement and expansion of their self-serving, militarized enterprises.
As I sit in the eerie silence of the truth being twisted into baseless rhetoric by our western conventional media coverage, I swear I can hear as Orwell Rolls In His Grave"...
So here it is, 2012, and we've witnessed the ratcheting up of the security state, rising up to even more looming Orwellian proportions in the form of agents provocateurs infiltrating and denegrating peaceful demonstrations: "black block activists" in legion with legions of riot police, water cannons and sound cannons, body-scanners and drone-based espianage aimed at those of us who would rise up and protest in the face of what for more and more of us have begun to realize -- that "the lunatics are running the asylum"!
Throughout all of this escalating madness, many times I've wondered what is the point of carrying on caring about, by comparison, this tiny realm of madness that I've personally encountered, documented and that now reside on these humble pages.
The point is multiple:
In fact, over the course of all these years, this site has gone down, most notably for more than the last year, now. It costs money to maintain a domain on the internet. I'm sad to say that the economic expense alone, is an extravagance and a struggle at times.
However, I do accept my duty to do what I can for the sake of the power of the truth to remain standing, and for the power of knowledge to inspire other people to act boldly to excercise the mighty power of fully-informed public opinion.
Please take the time to read on and share this site with others, that we might share more of the wealth of knowledge as we all become more fully-informed and inspired to act in accordance to a new-found, greater understanding of the multiplicity of ways the game's been rigged in favour of a privleged few, at enormous expence to the rest of humanity.
Now back to the primary reason for publishing this site.
Early on in the course of my self-directed adult education, I read that "[o]ur courts set the example for the rest of society to follow." It's true, our courts set precedents -- they make law. They even have the power to overrule parliament, our elected law-makers. But if the truth be known, what a shabby example it is that they set!
It is as Justice Minister Rob Nicholson implied last winter, when he said that our Administration of Justice was never meant to be a private club of lawyers. The fact is, we have let successive reigning political parties contaminate the Administration of Justice with political patronage appointments, one after the other.
A prominent St John's criminal lawyer, Jerome Kennedy agrees. For his candor, he faced the wrath of the Chief Justice and the Law Society of Newfoundland. Now he's the Justice Minister and A.G. of same. From my perspective, it does seem a bizzare twist of events...
And speaking of bizzare, George W. Bush came to Calgary to lead a discussion on "the challenges we face in the 21st century". As I said to Prime Minister Harper this March 16th, 2009, specifically regarding Canada's laws on war criminals, we're "more than just a few Keebler elves", you know.
"Another Horror Story" is about Howard Berge, former president of the Law Society of British Columbia. He recently resigned over a little fiasco involving a motor vehicle accident and a retaining wall, some diet pills and mouthwash, and criminal charges (later plea-bargained with the crown down to undue careless attention), resulting in a thousand dollar fine...
Could it be that Mr. Berge just needed her help to finance his drinking career?
Can you say,"Obstruction of Justice"?
But this is not about Mr. Berge's penchant for booze - it's about Mr. Berge and his friend and former law partner, Michael Bishop senior, and their fleecing of a disabled, single mother of three children.
As more and more families are falling apart, divorce has become an industry that serves lawyers, mortgage brokers and their friends in the real estate industry, generating 'distress sale' bargains that leave the family members homeless. How glaring it is to see how 'the players' remain primarily focussed on the 'matrimonial home'. Coincidentally, it is Master Bishop we see once more render decisions that defy logic.
Beyond criminal fraud, I've been subjected to repeated extortionist tactics, threats and coersion, all various attempts to try and shut me up.
Some even dared call it slander!
And then there's my friend, Karl Eisbrenner, and his Brouwer/Kuiper Case, wherein he set out to expose a wide-spread, clandestine collaboration between judicial and political interests, here in British Columbia. Those who opposed him went to enormous lengths to shut Karl up. Among them, you will again find Master Bishop meddling with and ignoring the law and the evidence Karl put before him. Persecuted and vilified, Karl is no longer with us since his car strayed off a relatively straight stretch of road, early one summer morning. Karl was found in the passenger seat and pronounced dead at the scene.
And my friend, John Bjornstrom, the notorious "Bushman of the Shuswaps", who spent two years of isolation in a remand cell before undergoing a five-day pre-sentence hearing, without ever going to trial to establish any basis of guilt or not. Even so, that five-day hearing revealed a repetitive propensity of Crown Counsel to dwell on his own apparent preferred state of the imagined, rather than the glaring facts that emmerged. It was established that John Bjornstron had previously conducted a private investigation into the case of two murdered teen-aged girls, discovered during the excavation of construction site in Calgary. This led him to an alleged pedophile/snuff/porn operation connected to suspects frequenting the Shuswaps.
Also established is that Mr. Bjornstrom had conducted a private investigation into the death of the geologist involved in the Bre-x scandal. John's lawyer explained in front of GLOBAL NEWS camaras that he had a copy of a hit-list, acquired during a series of raids conducted by Indonesian police, subsequent to the arrest of Tommy Suharta. John's name is on that list, but the lawyer said that he was prohibited from including it in the record to establish Mr. Bjornstrom's credibility -- something to do with national security, he revealed...
Assuredly, the truth is not always easy, nor is it always a popular stance to take. Take, for instance, my letter to Victor S. Janicki, a local criminal lawyer who took to heckling me from the top of the courthouse stairs.
It was here, also, that Crown Counsel, Norman Yates responded to my question: yes, he had sworn an oath to uphold the Criminal Code of Canada, but not where it concerns me. He then turned and walked away, refusing to elaborate. To be sure, that raises some concerns for my "protection before and under the law".
The questionable application and validity of my right to freedom and protection "before and under the law", and by extention, the question of application and validity of the 1982 Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is blurred, perhaps even misleading ("notwithstanding" what?) at best. Of even greater relevance to the question of protection, might be the part that states that "the evidence shall be excluded if it is established that, having regard to all the circumstances, the admission of it in the proceedings would bring the administration of justice into disrepute".
I see that the link to Section 24 has changed... Though merely a "google" away, here's a couple of brief perspectives -- a scant 2 pages, beginning with a page from the Advocates Quarterly, (Vol. 28, p. 103, 2004), Justice Lance Finch's interpretation in Case #CA014518, Kuntz v The College of Physicians, winding up with a few words from Dr. John David Kuntz, himself, on how it has been applied in Canada.
To be clear: it is not the evidence that would "bring the administration of justice into disrepute", it is the actions of those to whom the evidence points. If those powers that be really do wish to revive the reputation of our courts, then they'd better start prosecuting those who have brought our courts into such disrepute in the first place.
As former Prime Minister Paul Martin did say that he supports whistle-blowers, I sent him a copy of my letter to Mr. Janecki. I also bought a whistle. I know that Mr. Martin recieved my email, and gave it due concern, because he sent a fellow by my house to have a little visit with me...
It's hard to imagine that a guy might even get busted!???
Just imagine the implications...
Yes, when things get this bad, one may well have to resort to a variety of acts of civil disobedience, so as to invoke a challenge before the court..
And then once in a while, out of the blue... a ray of light.
As you peruse the related links on the right side of the page, it becomes clear to see that things are terribly broken. You might even be wondering; "How can we fix this mess?"
Sociologically speaking, an independent Administration of Justice forms the highest functional structure in any democratic society. To function properly, this administration must be beholden to nothing but the truth and the laws that are there to serve us all, equally in a fair and balanced society. There's just no room for private interests. But because of the sanction of just one lone judge, or 3, or even 5, all part of the same patronizing political process, politicians and their corporate lobbys keep winning while the rest of us keep losing in greater and greater numbers.
In any democratic society, democracy would be seen to be done daily, exercised by juries of 12 citizens, selected, based on each participant's independence. As with all things public, utter transparency is essential to insure the utmost independence. Tape recorders should not be banned from courtrooms. And like every decision we make, complete disclosure is essential to make the most informed decisions.
At the very minimum, our present system of administering justice heaps far too much responsibility on too few shoulders to carry such a monstrous load. The opportunities for undue influence, unimaginable for so many of us, becomes far too great, making life-long targets out of judges, singularly.
And to be frank, with judges owing their judicial positions to political appointments, realistically, can we ever expect to see a conviction for say, public malfeasance, misfeasance, or nonfeasance, in spite of whatever evidence? We must take back the power from those already demonstrably compromised interests, and put it back into the hands of the communities who are allegedly sworn to be served by it. It would solve a lot of our social problems, microcosmically, and even globally.
Because really, it is like the President of Iran, Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in his letter to President George W. Bush .
It is my contention that public opinion carries weight. As proof, I submit that in spite of those Orders from the Court, now expired, Grant Hardwick never caused my home to be sold, I never paid him another nickel, and you're still reading this now. Roy knows better than anyone how many responded to my massive email appeal, but I couldn't have done it without you all! Thank you so much for your efforts, profoundly demonstrating how wrong at least one of my lawyers, Marvin Geekie has been -- people do care about fairness and justice. After all, it's for our common best interest.
Between phone calls to talk radio, letters, faxes and emails to editors, MPs, MLAs and bureacrats, turn up the volume to arrest all predatory human behaviour. More than ever before, North Americans must shout out in defence of their freedom to investigate, speak about and uphold the truth. That is that also the essence of justice. Now more than ever, it's time for North Americans to excercise our guaranteed right to speak freely.
Does it feel like your elected representatives still won't hear you?
