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.
