The following comments are made under the full protection
of all the Rights and Freedoms to free speech that Canadians have, by way
of the Charter and all other supporting Acts, common law, etc., to express
political opinions, political observations (& of human nature in general)
and comment on their government, at all levels and in whatever form they
take, during an election or otherwise. This should also be considered
a victims statement. The following facts are further reasons why
the writer should be entitled to freedom of expression without persecution;
I am a poor writer who can't afford a secretary or proof-reader (especially
with no hope of a lawyer to proof-read), who is under a heavy workload
to try and keep up with paid bureaucrats and who has out performed City
staff for the benefit of the Cawthra Bush & community in general in
the past, that the only way to overcome the common government tactic of
trying to burn out people, groups and their volunteers who oppose government
(plans & actions) is to do the best I can, as fast as I can and as
honestly as I can. And if that is not good enough for you, then fund
the cost to do this work to whatever standard you can afford!
I regard the IPC's Orders involving the City of Mississauga & me, as being mostly legal frauds. Even to the point of calling the decisions made as being knowingly and deliberately wrong to serve the political agenda of the Mayor of Mississauga and the Ontario government in general, which is only possible for the following main reasons;
THE HOW OF INJUSTICE;
1). The Friends of the
Cawthra Bush (FCB), and I are too poor to hire
2). When the IPC writes
an Order, it controls its content. They can and do
3). The media cares little
for a small grass roots groups issues, regardless
THE WHY OF INJUSTICE;
A). Government traditionally
operate in secrecy and politicians prefer not
B). The rulings against
me have created powerful political weapons to be
C). The Orders against me and
the fact the City of Mississauga was
So, please understand I have done nothing wrong, but as the FCB and I am poor and can't buy justice in the Canadian legal system, we (mostly me), are being used as a scapegoat to set legal precedence that serves politicians & theirs bureaucrats desire to for secrecy. In the process stripping Ontarians of their rights. That will in time be used to draft news laws, under which all Ontarians will lose significant elements of their human and democratic rights. Because of the IPC's Orders we are now less of a human being before the law and government. At this critical moment when we choose whose version of moral leadership will guide bureaucrats and law makers. Do you want law and order but no justice?
Bad cases make for bad laws. The outcome of these rulings will affect everyone, if the FCB & I lose, we all do, that is how the law works. The FOI Act was changed by the current Tory government to make it easier to stop persons like myself who were acting on behalf of taxpayers/residents in opposing the unreasonable actions of their local government, the City of Mississauga. My efforts were only to restore residents democratic rights, to allow them to make an informed decisions, on environmental issues of concern in their community, by gaining access to City records through the FOI process.
I can't fight back, my money
is long gone, my personal life is all but in ruins and my health is suffering.
If anyone out there cares at all about their basic rights, now is the time
to help (or send money), or to get this story out, to show Ontarians their
future is seriously endangered and to require the candidates to go on the
record about how they will stop the loss of our rights and begin to restore
This just a sample of the false statements or allegations I have had to put up with. The City of Mississauga likes to use the "BIG Lie".
May 1/96 - D. M. a City Barrister and Solicitor, begins legal harassment. He claims a letter I wrote contents "libellous comments" and wants them to be withdrawn or there could be legal action. This lawyer refuses to note what comments he is referring to, so I have to go to City Council to explain how their lawyer is trying to sucker punch me. The City Council then directs him to (act responsibility), come clean with his accusations. When he does respond, he discredits himself by withdrawing his original claim and the comment he does interpret to be at issue, is so far out of context it reminds me of how kidnappers take a perfectly legal newspaper and cut it up to serve a criminal purpose. He was told to jump in the lake and there was no legal action.
More about J. LeFeuvre, the City's FOI Co-ordinator and why her claims about me and submissions to the IPC should not be believed. She carried out the Mayor's order to shut down the FOI Act regarding the FCB's FOI requests in the 1994 election year. After the election, FOI requests were processed again (in some but not all cases), but she kept the Mayors promise to withhold records and used every method she could. Like huge search fees, interpretations of my requests that withheld records and refusing to work with me (in a meaningful way), to find ways for cheap, cost effective access to records.
Sept. 29/98 - J. LeFeuvre signs an
false oath that all comments in regards to Official Plan Amendment No.
11 were being forwarded to the Region of Peel for their review and approval
(all but mine). I am not the only person
to say she signs false affidavits. Later she and the City Clerk
to sue me. I raised the issue of conflict of interest with
the IPC during an Appeal as she was handling the FOI request. The
City lawyer who handled the Inquiry says it was just an effort to get me
to withdraw my comments - I did not!
