NPCA the gift that keeps on giving!

Just when we thought it was safe to go back in the water along comes a watchdog to burst our bubble!
.
While the local newspaper spread a note of good cheer of a more cooperative Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) Board 
.
STCATHARINESSTANDARD.CA
Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority’s vice-chair James Kaspersetz says he is ready to work with Niagara’s new board members, despite previously denying the Region’s authority to appoint them.


The Watchdog group 'A BETTER NIAGARA' tells us that sharks are still circling the pool.
.
There's a lot we could say about Kaspersetz, one of Hamilton's appointees to the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Board. There's the large part he played in the current chaos at the NPCA; there's his propensity for meddling in Niagara politics; there's his role in the wrecking of the NPCA's Foundation which raised more than $200,000 in the name of charity in 2017 but spent 98% of it on administration and gala parties . . . oh so much we could say, but let's just chew on this: in 2017 Kaspersetz claimed $6,721 for attending 90 meetings. The Auditor General notes how out of the norm this is. She states: “Board members in 28 of the other 35 conservation authorities we surveyed claimed an average of 4 meetings each in 2017.” This is indicative of the mismanagement and lack of accountability the current Board has operated under and which Kaspersetz fully participated in.

This whole 'intolerable' situation as displayed by the miscreants controlling the NPCA is a natural occurrence caused when an elected government relinquishes their responsibility to an unelected government agency.
.
Perhaps the Regional Council should have changed their meetings from bi-weekly to bi-monthly with  a curfew of 9:00 o'clock. Or better yet, justify to the Citizens the necessity for the Regional level of government altogether! 
.

After all, it was the regional council that chased abused property owners back to their NPCA abusers! 
It was the Region and the NPCA who siced their common legal beagles to prey upon innocent property owners like some 'Matthew Hopkins Witchfinder' in full extortion mode! 
And it was these same Regional/NPCA miscreants that the electorate finally had enough of! 
.
According to Ed Smith of 'A BETTER NIAGARA' our elected and hired authorities need a lot more scrutiny and “We’re not done yet!”

NPCA refused to listen until the very end!

Citizens of Niagara tried to tell them; Regional Government tried to tell them ; Now Judge Ramsey has told them in no uncertain terms!
.
When Dave Barrett identified himself as CEO of the NPCA the judge commented "Allegedly".
.

Judge Ramsey described the NPCA situation as 'intolerable' and proceeded to rule that the 12 temporary members of the board appointed by Regional Council as of December 6, 2018 were in charge and that the former board members were dismissed.
.
The whole 'intolerable' situation as displayed by the miscreants controlling the NPCA is a natural occurrence caused when an elected government relinquishes their responsibility to an unelected government agency.
.
It was the NPCA's wonton abuse of power that caught the attention of 'News Alert Niagara'. Our lonely stories slowly grew until the electorate decided that enough was enough and turfed their donkeys to the curb along with most of the Regional Councilors. The icing on our Christmas cake was the effort of our new watchdog group 'A Better Niagara' with their successful court injunction before Judge Ramsey.  
.
In the end the miscreants in charge of the NPCA collapsed under public exposure of their own unsupervised repugnant conduct.
.
The question remains; will the NPCA continue in their Empire Building on the backs of hapless Niagara Citizens or will the new board return the NPCA to their mandate of conservation.

How does any self-respecting government allow this?

The Despicable Persecution of ‘the Lady of the Horses’.

Now the 'Lady of the Horses' has been hit with a Citizen crushing $600.000 lean on her property.

And who conducted this despicable years-long persecution? Why, none other than the secretive Halton Conservation Authority (HCA)! The Same HCA that the Halton Regional Government allows to hide the identification of the HCA board of directors and allows their HCA to screen presenters that don’t ascribe to their corrupt aspirations. Indicating that the Region of Halton has a mad-dog gang on the loose.

The only way this mad-dog HCA gave themselves control of the Thomas’s property is by continuing to claim ever-increasing meters from the so-called wetland. Perhaps the Ontario Government of Premier Kathleen Wynne and her Liberal henchmen should have simply extended their reach by kilometers instead of meters in their effort to steal private property equity especially with their proposed increase of fines from $10K to a Family-Crushing $50,000.00!  

The HCA claims control of 80% of the Thomas property including their home and barn, which means they could never rebuild or replace, and still they must pay 100% property tax!

Question: How does an attempted $1,000.00 shakedown by HCA to keep the horse-riding ring qualify as environmental conservation?

The court transcripts show that the Lady of the Horses, Jean Thomas has been denied her rights by a justice who followed and agreed to the ridiculous charges of a vindictive HCA prosecutor; the same persecutor that wrote the judgment for the justice.
.
Question? Who in all levels of government; in our (so-called) justice system is looking out for the Canadian Citizen?
So Far all we have heard from our Conservative government is ignorant silence even though we have kept them fully informed!

The court transcripts show that the Thomas’s had to sit through hours, days and years of the persecutors’ musings ranging from the ‘sand ring not a threat to the nearby wetland in over seven years’ to ‘removing the sand ring could somehow harm the wetland!’

The same transcripts show that the Justice listened to the same hours, days and years of the persecutor’s barely audible musings only to accept the persecutor’s notes as her final verdict costing the ‘Lady of the Horses’ a grinding financial penalty of over a quarter of a $million and for what? For creating a sand ring between her house and barn for her horses that never threatened a wetland!

  1. Well, Ford is in now. If this is all true, then the HCA should not only be closed down, but refund all losses to her and her estate and family. The means courts cost, loss of income and anything else lost in this action.

    1. This is right down Fords alley. He has a lot on his plate at the moment, but in the next 2 weeks I will do all I can to have a meeting with him. And yes it is all true. Its unbelievable. So much more has been done, I could write a book. Thank God I had someone to help us that has knowledge in bi laws of the Conservation, that I was able to get this far. Thank you.

NPCA Frustration

caused by an unaccountable gang of corrupt miscreants still attempting to force their will on the Citizens of Niagara!


Now everybody is aware of the frustration that so many Citizens of Niagara have been going through (for years) with this government protected rogue agency.

You Owe $20,000

and so does each and every member of your Family!

Courtesy of every failing government of Canada!







Letters to the editor by John Currey


I saw George Darte at Mass last night and he avoided me.  A few weeks ago I was talking to him and asked if he did only one thing, to NOT bring the Peterson/McGuinty/Wynne enabler,Bradley, on us.  He gave some answer like he thought Ford would install a Chairman of his liking.

Now the LIBERAL CABAL has been enabled by the votes of our supposedly Conservative Rigby, Darte and our swarms little mayor.

What is next?  Oh yes, the installation of Edgar to replace Bradley.  That makes Edgar a two time loser at the ballot box that will now be working on his second unelected term toward a pension.  But that is better than Trough Bradley now on his fourth.

God help us!

By the way, the Standard and their cub reporter LaFish failed to let us know how the three candidates responded to the question of the City of NIAGARA.  Do you know their stand?

Any of them show a willingness to put 31 regional councillors and a truck load of city politicians out of business?

Epiphany at the Region!

Considering Former MPP Bradley's conduct as cabinet minister under the corrupt McGuinty/Wynne government as evidenced by the the total rejection of that opaque government, it is somewhat comforting to have our newly elected Regional Chair Bradley express his intent to bring Transparency and Openness to Niagara Regional Governance.
All three contestants for Regional Chair sang from the same song-sheet regarding their promise for Transparency and Openness.
Throughout the Inaugural Meeting of our new Regional Counsel we witnessed a gregarious level of self-congratulations, braggadocio and self-praise regarding their faith in their new Regional Council's commitment to better governance. 
Throughout all the decades of inaugural pomp and ceremony, hope and promise and faith in future, we must never let our guard down considering and remembering the disappointments of past administrations.
.
Now that we have Transparency and Openness and for A Better Niagara we must support our Regional Chair and our Regional Council.

Fight for your Rights

Why do some courts violate the rights of Ontario Citizens? 

In recent years, however, citizens have indicated that their rights to record their own court hearing are being obstructed by many judges and lawyers. 

Misleading signs are being posted at many courthouses which attempt to fool the people into believing that they have no rights. 

Some citizens tell of being threatened with arrest for attempting to exercise their lawful rights. A number of judges and lawyers are afraid to allow citizens having a separate record of what may have been said in court as this makes it more difficult to alter transcripts and hide the truth. 

Those who tell the truth and conduct themselves in an honourable manner should have no fear of audio recordings made in the court. Only those judges and lawyers who are afraid and want to hide the truth will object to audio recording in the court. 

If anything, audio recording helps promote the administration of justice in a number of ways. It allows citizens maintain their own accurate record of events in court and allows them to review the day’s events without having to wait weeks and sometimes months for transcripts. 

Audio recording will also serve as a deterrent to those who may think of lying to the court, including lawyers who often introduce evidence which is not on the official court records. 

Most citizens who go to court agree that they would feel safer and be more trustful of the justice system if they were allowed to independently record their own court hearing. 

What do I do if my rights are being violated? If you are refused your rights under law to enter a court building, should a judge refuse to acknowledge your rights under the Courts of Justice Act (136.1) in his/her court or should any lawyer argue against your rights in the courtroom, then it is important for you to take appropriate steps to protect your rights and freedoms by filing complaints against those responsible for violating your rights as well as the principles of fundamental justice. If you don’t exercise your rights you will lose them! 

If you are refused access to your court by court security officers then ask for their badge numbers and make a note of the date and time of the incident. 

If a judge refuses to recognize your rights then request that the judge issue an order to this effect. 

It is a good idea to have another person with you to witness any violation of your rights. More detailed information about how to exercise your rights to record your hearing can be obtained on the website http://www.canadacourtwatch.com
