Will Justice be served -the David against Golliath Saga

Will justice be served in the epic struggle of David the common man against the Government Revenue Canada Goliath in Brantford?

A stay in execution until March 3,2005

A promising and highly qualified developer won his rightful stay of execution in Brantford on Thursday in Brantford court. Adam, our common man, who was trying to clear and defend his reputation and name, won a stay of execution until March 3.

After an often bitter, hotly contested, and public costly, criminal legal action brought by the Revenue Canada (RC) Goliath - which has lasted over four years, the proceeding on Thursday, provided theatre and drama in the best soap opera tradition. The public saw a defense council step down or who was removed by the Judge and could not speak for Adam, a crown prosecutor, out for blood, who reluctantly agreed to the new dates, and a judge who pondered whether she could hear the application or if perhaps a more senior experienced judge or the Court of Appeal should hear the new information to facilitate the course of Justice.

Clearly outmatched in financial resources, this intelligent David launched his rock or application against the mammoth, (RC) Goliath and the often-creaky justice system. Adam faced his accusers bravely, stoically and with dignity, refusing to yield, roll over or turn a blind eye to his perceived miscarriages of justice. He, in his own self-defense attempted to point out the complicity and errors of Revenue Canada-with his application, raising many legal justice issues, specifically official entrapment, officially induced errors and all the other inadvertent errors made in the justice system by its legal representatives Too bad for the overzealous over priced government vigilantes

How vexatious, how annoying for his detractors. – Too bad for them , but good for common Canadians .We fortunately still have the Charter of Rights in Canada. Individuals still have the right and obligation to challenge decisions that are murky and cloudy.

The public, along with the normal court gargoyles and hangers on, were deprived of their "sure thing "hanging spectacle on Thursday. Instead the public, the press and Adams detractors and tormentors, which included the father of the over zealous Revenue Canada investigator, witnessed a spirited, intelligent and righteous defense by a formidable opponent motivated by self preservation, the concept of natural justice and fairness, and the firm conviction that he did nothing wrong by following the orders and instructions of his now tormentors- the apparently unaccountable Revenue Canada Goliath.

Stayed tuned, to find out what will happen next?

Let’s make this a visible issue and keep informed. This could happen to you or anyone, no matter how innocent, or professional you are. Be vigilant about whose official instruction you take in the government. Following orders may not be a good defense. Your ideas are welcome to further the debate and help the innocent.

Sorberras help comes to late- too little ,too late

So you think you have money in a secure government pension- Huh and eh! Read the fine details first!

This is a letter to the Minister from a fellow blogger. Am interested in how to fix this travesty - lets shine the light on more issues to help our "trusted and paid public resources to work for us the public -for a refreshing change" Sieg

Honourable Greg Sorberra
Minister of Finance
7th Floor Frost Bldg. South
7 Queen's Park Crescent
Toronto, Ontario, M7A 1Y7

Dear Minister Sorberra,

Thank you for your letter of January 13, 2005, concerning the FSCO and locked in retirement savings plans. The information would have been quite useful but I was forced to sell my home because of my inability to keep up with the payments and the sale closes on January 28th. I have purchased a small cottage in Port Rowan Ontario and I will retain the information for the time when I am unable to pay the property taxes and am in danger of losing that property as well.

I believe that Mr. Barrett told you in his letter that I was turning to Ontario Works to support myself. They seem to be finding excuse after excuse to deny me any kind of assistance. I have to wait until I am virtually bankrupt and homeless, or on illegal drugs in order to get help. I don't mean to sound bitter but I guess my mind is wandering back to happier times when debtors prisons provided basic shelter and a daily bowl of gruel for sustenance of the indigent.

I am finding this time of my life very frustrating. I am 55 years old and, had I left my retirement savings in OMERS, I would be drawing a pension now instead of begging the FSCO for access to my own money. Doubly frustrating is that every time I apply, they dip into my retirement savings for an administration fee so they can tell me that I can have $13,000 to support myself for the coming year. Less income tax, of course. We mustn't forget that must we.

Just as a matter of background, I am an electrical engineer who was a senior manager in government and utilities for twenty years. I have run companies and am skilled in electrical power, alternative energy issues, drinking water, and wastewater matters. I have been unemployed since September 2003 and it is humiliating that I can't even get a job pouring coffee at a Tim Horton’s. Despite the fact that Stats Canada lists the government in Ontario and Quebec as the sector with the most job growth in Canada, my familial connections don’t seem to be quite right to gain me employment at either the provincial or federal level. This is why my retirement savings would be so handy at the moment. But, I guess that I have to be punished for removing the funds from OMERS to try to maximize the return on investment, so I shouldn’t complain.

Again, Minister Sorberra, I appreciate all your efforts on my behalf and I will retain the information you sent for future reference.

Yours truly, Our man, P. Eng.
