Unjustified

Once again, we got the call regarding a Citizen being abused by authorities. Once again, we made the trek to visit the abused. Again, we listened to a litany of grievances that have become so familiar to us.
.
Seems simple enough. Seems the Town of Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada was showing concern regarding the unsightliness of the reused ‘shipping Containers’ and the Citizen, Mr. Dan Favero was indeed utilizing shipping containers.
.
.
Mr. Favero says he favors shipping containers for a multitude of reasons not least of which security being his primary concern.
.
The Town was going to great lengths to paint the use and reuse of ‘shipping containers’ as a blight on their town even though shipping containers were also being used by the Town alongside Town facilities. They spent many hours designing expensive examples of how to construct buildings to hide shipping containers and where they can be placed on a property for concealment.

Observation by ‘News Alert Niagara’ is that Favero Storage and Car Wash appears to be a respectable entity when compared with others habitating along the same street. 
.
.
Perhaps Favero Storage and Car Wash would  make an even better impression if they were not spending their time and fortune fighting with the Town of Fort Erie for their very existence!
.
However, as the story rolled on it started to turn even darker as we learned that the authorities running the Town of Fort Erie apparently had been persecuting the Favero Family for over 14 years starting with Mr. Dan Favero's parents. The Town was citing every little thing they could find to dislodge the family business, Favero Storage and Car Wash, from their location on the north side of Garrison Road (Highway #3). They exhausted all their legitimate bylaws to the point that they inappropriately tried charging Citizen Favero under newly created bylaws.
.
Attacks by the Town came by the dozens. Repeated visits by Town personnel. Dozens of charges laid followed by repeated summonses all applied to Mr. Favero for the same repeated charge dragging this Citizen though the expensive courts system (4 times) on repeated appeals.
.
During Favero’s ordeal, he was never once allowed to make a plea or presentation to Council. He was denied attendance to multiple pretrial hearings (blocked at the Door). Mr. Favero has even been denied 'Freedom of Information'.
.
Sadly, his so-called political representatives turned their back on him. No one in authority wanted to hear from him making a mockery out of the words ‘civic leadership’.
.
Those elected and hired by the Citizens of Fort Erie speciously attacked this innocent Citizen with multiple charges and Court summons, repeated trips to out of town courtrooms, continual badgering as to Mr. Favero’s credibility and judgment. Mr. Favero was even attacked by the Town when he simply replaced a through-the-wall air conditioner! Favero has record of the litany of attacks against him by Town Authorities.
.
More intriguing was sitting through the court activities watching, listening and recording the astonishing attempt to deprive Mr. Favero of his property Rights.
.
But, it was the specter of the opposing lawyers crowding around Favero cornered in the witness box pouring over every niggling speck on maps, failing in their attempt to destroy an innocent man and his family that finally alerted me to the question as to why such a gargantuan effort on behalf of the Town of Fort Erie.
.
Surely, if the courts found in Favero’s favor on four separate court cases the term ‘innocent’ must apply.
.
However, if the Town loses in four attempts before the courts to deprive its Citizens of their property, property rights and the right to legally maintain what is theirs, what is the term that would/should apply?
.
The question that developed was; just what was the justification for such a deliberate and persistent (decades long) persecution of an innocent Citizen?
.
Then it came! A plausible explanation. It's called Alliston Woods. Alliston Woods turns out to be a 104-lot subdivision, which was first proposed in 2001 by private developers. Certainly, a plausible explanation for which some believe to be the cause for the longevity of the persecution.
.
 Alliston Woods subdivision just happens to be located immediately behind Favero Storage and Car Wash .
.
Delving further revealed why the need for the Town to rest control of the Favero property. Apparently the subdivision has no access to Garrison Road and therefore Favero Storage and Car Wash stood in their way of gaining access! 
.
Apparently, without access through the Favero property the private Alliston Woods subdivision cannot proceed.
.
Question: Will the taxpaying Citizens of Fort Erie  accept their hard earned money (est. $million) being spent to simply gain access for a private business entity at the expense of an innocent Citizen?
.
To put this scenario into perspective, the Town of Fort Erie is considering expropriation as a method of confiscating Mr. Favero's private property. Since when can expropriation of one person's private property be used in favor of someone else's private business? What is the connection between the Town Authorities and the people behind the Alliston Woods proposed subdivision?
.
.The Town opted for their customary bullying tactic trying to inexpensively deprive the Favero Family of their property, their property rights and their right to maintain what is rightfully theirs. 
.
Dear readers, this disgraceful land grab is not some scenario out of a wild west movie with Hopalong Cassidy and the Black Bart Gang. Hell no! This shameful land grab is taking place right here in Ontario, Canada with a new Provincial Premier with a new Attorney General complete with 600 Constitutional Lawyers!
.
Normally the story would be rapping up at this point.
.
However, this story is so disturbing that for the first time ‘News Alert Niagara’ is compelled to request a response from the Town of Fort Erie to garner their perspective.
.
Dear Fort Erie
I am working on an article regarding the plight of Mr. Dan Favero of Favero Storage and Car Wash.
Could someone in authority please respond with a justification for the four court challenges against Mr. Favero, soon to be a fifth, predicated on a new appeal by your town.
I await your  earliest reply

Dear Mr. Haskell,
Thank you for your web enquiry. At this time, the Town is in litigation on this matter and is unable to provide comment. Kind regards,
Customer Service Unit
Town of Fort Erie

.
Thank you Beverley Bradman for your prompt reply.
Your Town Authorities will have the opportunity to clarify their justifications for the decades long persecution of the Favero Family in the comment section below the article.
 Preston Haskell editor News AlertNiagara

The good news is that ‘News Alert Niagara’ is inviting everyone, particularly the Town of Fort Erie Authorities, to attend the fifth Town court appeal (November 5, 2019 Provincial Offences Court, 445 E Main St. Welland) against the Favero Family so that interested parties can witness for themselves this shameless persecution going on in our courts out of public scrutiny. 
.




PS:
Head of Planning Rick Brady threatened that they will prosecute non compliance, and that since they are “ illegal” to begin with, there is no “grandfather “ status anywhere.

The Brilliance of Bureaucrats Times 2



First Dateline: 

SATURDAY, 22 SEPTEMBER 2012

Article:
.
.
The Brilliance grows brighter or at least focuses sharper with the specious political decisions becoming more evidenced by the fact that new hospitals can somehow evade the intelligence of corrupted decision makers that Central does not mean building expensive hospitals at the extreme far reaches of our region.
.
The building of a new improperly located hospital does not give licence to strip medical services from the Southwestern portion of the Niagara Region. https://niagaraatlarge.com/2019/09/24/ontario-ndp-will-fight-to-keep-port-colborne-urgent-care-centre/
.
Not only is the improperly designated (South Niagara Hospital) not located in the south of our region it is inconveniently placed with its back to the U.S. Border just as our (centrally located) St. Catharines Hospital is located with its back to Lake Ontario!
.
In our 'News Alert Niagara' 2012 article we raised some very pertinants questions:
.
Is someone in dire need of a map and compass or is this just another brilliant and imaginative case of NHS part two?
.
The new General Hospital in St. Catharines, just north of the railway tracks and just south of Lake Ontario, is about to be joined by another so-called centrally located hospital mostly east of the first so-called central location!
.
Worse, there is no direct highway to and from many of the south and west communities, which of course means longer transit time for ambulances.
.
But, I guess that doesn't matter as long as some get a new hospital in the northeast and to hell with the rest.
.
To put this scenario into perspective we would simply askWhat would the sentiments have been had the new ‘central’ hospital currently located north of the tracks just west of St. Catharines instead been built south of the tracks just west of Port Colborne?
.
What would the sentiments be if the proposed new ‘central’ hospital slated for the city of Niagara falls at the extreme eastern boundary of the Niagara region were instead proposed for the town of Wellandport near the western boundary of the  Niagara Region?
.
Seven years on and the wise are no wiser!

In 2012 when we started our 'News Alert Niagara' Blog in an effort to develop more timely information articles to our online magazine 'The Mirror online'.

.
'News Alert Niagara' primarily tracks corruption in its many forms and many sources. The beauty of a blog is the ability to Link into the whirlpool of corruption without the need to rewrite an explanation.
.
'News Alert Niagara' alerts its readers when any threat of harm is suspected or perceived and we do this without fear or favor.

Open Letter to Private Property Owners


‘News Alert Niagara’ is sounding the alarm about the theft and abuse of Canadian Private Property Owners at the hands of all levels of tyrannical government and their unaccountable agencies.
.
The theft and abuse of private property owners is predicated on the Canadian Authority's inability to adequately husband our resources.
.
Canada’s astonishing national debt has been building because of wasteful spending and the overloading of government. In other words, too few citizens to pull a too heavy load of bureaucrats!
 While our Government has turned on us to cover their corruption and inabilities, we as Citizens must take responsibility for the situation we are now facing.
.
We have failed to hold our authorities accountable for their actions.
.
We have not made ourselves available and willing to participate in the decision-making process such as board of directors of government agencies.
.
Example: Of the 3 dozen (Illegitimate) Conservation Authorities (CA) there is not a single landowner member on their board of directors.
.
We cannot sit back and complain about decisions made regarding private property if there is no representation; if we are too feckless to do our duty.


The first question for our elected officials is; Why is there NO representation from Private Landowners on Conservation Boards when it is the Private Landowners that are most directly affected by CA Decisions and it is the Private Landowners that are a significant source of expertise in land management.
.
There appears to be only two ways to defend against runaway tyranny and the two ways are #1. Get involved politically and #2. Litigation in the higher courts.
.
#1. We have witnessed the positive results of political action by UN-electing failing politicians.
.
#2. Litigation in higher courts because our Provincial Offences Courts have been hijacked by justices who consider themselves as ‘Legal guardians of the realm’ handing down rulings based on laws that justify theft and abuse but devoid of justice.
.
Private Landowners must unite and support an association such as the Ontario Landowners Association (OLA) or face the onslaught of those who mistakenly think that your Land is their private playpen
.
The OLA holds centrally located informative conventions with brilliant and informative guest speakers while disseminating all pertinent information far and wide. 
.
There is an opportunity to fight back in the higher courts and that is to help fund a court challenge on behalf of all Private Landowners.

Stop Your Abuse

A response from Jeff Bogaerts that must be shared:
Jeff Bogaerts In 1932 at Queens Park, the Legislature began debates to create the Conservation Authority Act..
The flooding of the Grand River was the catalyst.
The first act was passed in 1946. Since then, lobbying by groups such as Conservation Ontario, have expanded the function of CA's far beyond the Legislator's Intent of protecting people and property from flooding.
.
CA's do not need to own and manage golf courses, ski hills, parks, museums etc. They have nothing to do with flooding.
Provincial Parks and Federal Parks (Rideau Canal) do a fine job. There are Provincial, Federal and Municipal departments that can look after historical sites such as Mill of Kintail. The Mill of Kintail is not the responsibility of Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority or any other CA. The Mill of Kintail Must be Preserved and open to the Public. It must not be the responsibility of MVCA.
Every dollar and hour spent on the Mill is a dollar and hour taken away from protecting people and property from flooding. Spend the time and money exactly where the Legislator's Intent was debated and decided.
The CA's today are Private Clubs. They are trying to duplicate Provincial Parks and are expanding into the Private Sector. Tax from the Public Purse is not to be used to be in competition with Private Golf Courses or Private Ski Hills.
Protect People and Property from Flooding … allow People to Protect Their Private Property from Flooding … once the flood waters are gone … mark the height of the water and build Coastal Engineered Permanent Erosion Control Barriers … not take down the sandbags and wait for the next flood to occur then build the sandbag walls again … Conservation Authorities … Do Your Job … Clean out the rivers, Lakes, Streams, Municipal Drains … build flood control dams (with micro hydro turbines if possible) … Stop Your Abuse ...

Good News - Bad news

From the depths of environmental despair we finally get a hint that help is on its way and it comes in the form of an Ontario Environment Minister actually paying attention to what the Conservation Authorities (CA) have been up to.
.
For those not knowing what CAs have been doing to innocent Citizens here is a LINK to follow: 
https://newsalertniagara.blogspot.com/2019/08/the-great-canadian-con-job.html
olkj  j-nmnmjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj j.
Some folk are erroneously lamenting the loss of conservation authorities power to protect our environment but nothing could be further from reality.



Under the McGuinty/Wynne Liberal Government our supposed environment protectors were allowed to run roughshod over innocent Citizens while allowing developers to rape our environment at will; practicing silence in the face of municipal pollution of our waterways and even denying a voice from the very Citizens that their decisions affect most; (private landowners). 
.
"After decades of Conservation Authority's empire building and coning society of their great value at protecting our environment, we have spent $billions only to arrive at a situation of devastated families, polluted beaches, polluted great lakes, polluted rivers, polluted groundwater and leaching carcinogenic toxins!" - Preston Haskell 
.
They deny the inclusion of even a single Private Landowner member of the Land Owner Association on the excuse that there is no rule that says a landowner must be included. 
.
Surely, that means there is no rule that says that a landowner member of the Landowner Association should be excluded!
.
By denying Landowner participation there is no representation for the landowner point of view and no voice to sound the alarm as when things inevitably go wrong!
.
It is exactly the lack of inclusive representation and oversight that has been the genesis of the wicked criminal persecution of so many innocent Citizens.
.
Who is responsible for Ontario Landowners being under the thumb of unaccountable, empire building and criminal agencies with no ability for Citizens who are expressly involved their RIGHT to representation?

.
'News Alert Niagara' lauds the new NPCA Administration for producing a short Biography of their board members as we requested.
.
However, a cursory examination of the NPCA Board reveals that there is not one member representing the Private Landowner or their Association to represent the very land the NPCA claims to holds sway over!

Please note, the arrogant reaction of the Ontario Conservation Authority when the Ontario environment Minister simply asks the CA to stick to their core function:
.
It should come as no surprise to the CAs that the Ontario Landowners Association has come out in support of the Minister of Environment, Conservation and Parks, Jeff Yurek, MPP
https://ontariolandowners.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/OLA-Press-Release-August-27-2019.pdf
.
'News Alert Niagara' is asking the Ontario Government to ensure that all agencies that make decisions affecting Private Landowners have at least one Landowner member on each oversight 'Board of Directors' from the Citizens of interest.
