CORNWALL Ontario –  It all started with a settlement hearing at Small Claims court in Cornwall Ontario.

Sadly, Mike Bedard of Platinum Pools would not pay his seasonal bill, again.      So CFN was forced to take him to court to try and collect a bill.  This would not be the first time Mr. Bedard had not paid a bill.  Just ask a few of the folks from the former Roy’s Pools that he was at the wheel of before it shuttered.

The hearing went bad for Mr. Bedard and that night out of the blue I received a call from Cst. Casey MacGregor of the Cornwall Community Police.   It was late at night and had awoken me.  I was warned for making threatening phone calls to Mr. Bedard.

It was bizarre and shocking as I hadn’t made any calls period to Mr. Bedard in any fashion.

Chief Parkinson & Fitzy July 2013 I called my legal people and sent a note to Chief of Police Dan Parkinson which he answered most bizarrely by asking what my email address was?   (this was particularly odd as he and I had emailed several times prior and had what I would consider a friendly and polite working relationship including him doing an interview holding Fitzy, my dachshund.)

Two days later, February 9th 2014, the day of CFN’s 5 year anniversary; a day I spent at the Port theatre having a celebration ended with another late night call from the same Cst McGregor, this time informing me that I had to attend the station and was to be arrested for now making death threats to Mr. Bedard.

I have lived nearly 51 years on this planet and have never had any complaints or charges by police.   I have a spotless record.   Yet in this town I’ve now had several false complaints.  The first was from Traci Trottier who not once, but twice made allegations which both time were easily proven false.  Both times the police refused to charge her.

This time I attended the station. I was forced to empty my pockets and lean against a wall and get patted down.  I had to put all my belongings in a plastic bag.   I also saw the police smear me in the blotter the next day leading with my name which was most unusual.

This is what the CCPS put out to the media:

Cornwall, ON – Jamie Gilcig, 49 of Cornwall was arrested on February 10, 2014 and charged with criminal harassment and threats to life. It is alleged that the man repeatedly contacted a 31-year-old man by way of phone calls and e-mails despite having been warned not to. On February 9th, 2014 the man also threatened to kill the 31-year-old man during one of the calls. Police were contacted and an investigation ensued. On February 10th, 2013 the man attended police headquarters to deal with the matter. He was taken into custody, charged accordingly and later released to appear in court on March 20th, 2014.

This of course impacted my business and it impacted my run for mayor.   The Seaway News and Bill Kingston were especially brutal in the manner they covered my charges with them being brought up during the campaign.

My phone or phone records were not examined at the time of my arrest and “spoofing” is well known to most law enforcement.   After all Sgt Chad Maxwell had to sign off on Cst MacGregor’s work and of course Crown Jennifer Burke pushed it forward.

tammy parkway HSAround the same time South Stormont Deputy Mayor Tammy Hart clip clopped over to the OPP detachment next door to the township offices.  She filed what’s known as an 810 or restraining order/ peace bond.  Normally these are only issued when someone fears for the life or safety.  In her statement she never mentioned either of those, but she did state that I took video of her in council chambers and that I had sent her a note stating :

Hi Tammy,

In light of your actions I think it best if you resign as Deputy Mayor today; before 5 PM.
Her actions had been putting out a memo that clearly lied about the advertising deal for South Stormont News.  Clearly there was nothing threatening in that sentence.
.
For some odd reason I had not one, but two OPP officers show up at my downtown Cornwall home at night.   Their red lights attracted me to the front of my home where I saw the two officers.  No charge was given because frankly… I hadn’t broken the law, but why would OPP officers come to Cornwall in this manner when the procedure is to have CCPS attend and vice versa?
.
A reasonable person might just conclude that this was abuse of authority by a Deputy Mayor and intimidation by police?
.
Things got weirder as Ms Hart belonged to a hate group of CFN that attacked myself, my associates, my clients, and even my pets to the tune of over 2,000 comments.    Several complaints about its various members were made to the CCPS, OPP and even the RCMP over a copyright infringement of one of our videos, but all were refused.    This even included a fake letter from the OSPCA accusing me of not caring for my dying dog.   It frankly was sick and scary.
.
There were days that I felt like fleeing, but hung there.    Mr. Bedard joined the group.  It was that insane.   The group even included people like former MPP Jim Brownell (who still is a member).
.
And then Brock Frost joined in.  Cornwall’s new councilor was not happy at our covering his River King antics and thanks in part to CFN’s exposing some of those antics the team was able to finish the season in Cornwall.  He also wasn’t happy about our coverage of his real estate dealings in Nicaragua.
.
However Mr. Frost took things to a new level of weird.   Firstly he announced via press release that he was going to destroy CFN.   He also announced, also via press release that I had made sexual advances on him at a sales meeting.
That he bought an ad at that meeting or did interviews with me shortly thereafter was not included in his release.
 .
He actually sued me for defamation but never served me and had to give up the case (court costs to myself pending).
.
He upped the ante even higher by going to police and a justice of the peace stating that I had come to council to beat him up and that after a council meeting four cars were at his house and that one had been mine so he had to flee.
.
Oddly enough that night I had come to council and was chatting with a retired CBSA agent, the son of one of the councilors and the minister who opened with convocations that night.  I left the meeting early.
.
In the most bizarre twist I had this doozey of an email get sent to me.
.
Dear Mr. Gilcig

This email address was created for the sole purpose of this message and will be deleted immediately after. Furthermore, I will not disclose the motivation behind my contact with you. 
I am writing to inform you that Mr. Frost is not who he claims to be. In fact, he is a British National (no longer even Canadian) and has been working with MI6 since 2008. Mr. Frost was one of a few individuals selected as part of an elite group mandated to infiltrate the Canadian political system. He appears to be on track with his goal. 
I will caution you however that Mr. Frost is undeniably brilliant. His IQ is top of the chart, has unlimited financial resources and diplomatic immunity in approximately 20 countries including strong allies in Ottawa. 
Although he will not admit it, he also speaks fluent Spanish, German, Mandarin and some Russian. 
I have attached a copy of his passport for your information. Best of luck in your pursuit of the truth. 
brock GB pp
I imagine they were hoping that I was crazy enough to publish it as a serious lead.  We joked around the office that it was probably sent by Mr. Frost himself and even included a fake passport photo!

His complaint sadly went to the same Justice of Peace that viewed a video of Museum guy Ian Bowering not only striking my camera and breaking it, but admitting it on camera.     Mr. Bowering was not charged.
.
Essentially a reasonable person might conclude that it was open season on my myself to press complaints and closed season to protect me from incitement to violence and other threats.
.
How was this all allowed to happen?   It comes down to Crown attorneys and the immunity they have.     Why did Jennifer Burke refuse to order a production order for my phone until her refusal was demanded in writing?
.
Why did Ottawa Crown Julie Scott refuse to drop by charges and refuse to investigate the case once the production order showed I never made the calls?   I was forced, with no previous record, to live under adverse conditions including during the election when the crown faxed permission to change my conditions for the debates but didn’t sign and then changed her mind and left me swinging.
.
I actually considered going into the Chamber debate wearing a blindfold so I could prove that I never saw Mr. Bedard if he attended, who was threatening on facebook to show up at debates to trigger my conditions not to be near him.
bedard re false claims OCT 18 2014 FB    2 with FROST
As well he made statements that if I had responded would have had me in breach like the one above.   No matter how false or brutal it was to innocent people a single word of response could have landed me in breach.
bedard on advertising on CFN defam OCT 16 2014
Again, any response even indirectly would have had me charged with breach whether the comments made by Mr. Bedard were accurate or not.
MIKE bedard SOCIAL ASSISTANCE  - DEC 28 2014 - facebook
Here Mr. Bedard is posting directly to me on Facebook.  If I responded to his false claims, again I would have been held in breach.
.
Today,  in a hearing that took less than ten minutes a local crown read a prepared statement by Julie Scott stating that I had no criminal record, had not breached, and that it was in the public interest that my charges be dropped.
.
Of course a reasonable person might posit that the charges should never have been laid and that after the production order came in blowing the disclosure out of the water that the charges should have been immediately dropped or that an investigation been initiated.
.
The crown refused to do either and instead kept me living under conditions for nearly a full year.   And at what cost to the public purse?  And why?
.
That is not justice in Ontario in 2015.
.
It is my opinion that Mr. Bedard should be investigated and I would like to file a complaint with the CCPS.
.
It is my opinion that Cst. McGregor, Sgt Maxwell, and Chief Parkinson’s actions be investigated including Cst. McGregor’s attempt to intimidate me by threatening me with breach if I didn’t pull a piece off of CFN that was published before any charges against me were laid.
.
It is my opinion that both Crowns Jennifer Burke and Julie Scott’s actions in this case be fully investigated, immunity or not.
.
It is my opinion that any of the members of the Police Board from the last term immediately resign.   Having the police chief be up for contract renewal when the former Mayor was on the Police Board and his campaign manager as chair are very poor optics, especially during an election campaign.
.
It is my opinion that an inquiry needs to be held as letters of complaint were sent to the Attorney General’s office and Premier’s office.  In one case letters were sent to people with false statements from the AG’s office.
.
What happened to me this past 14 months should never happen to another resident or journalist in this province again.    There needs to be an accounting for actions and decisions made regarding this case from the first phone call to the hearing today.
.
More to come, but for today, for the first time in over a year, I truly am a free person again.
.
I would like to thank the late Gerry Conlon for helping me get through this trying period, and my many local friends and supporters who I could honestly not have got through the darkest moments without.
.
And while many might suggest that the “bad guys” used this conspiratorial series of events to send me the message to move out of Cornwall; that it is without the expert assistance of Paralegal James Moak and all of my supporters that their game failed.

Jamie I couldn’t go through one iota of what you have been through and believe me I had my fill of Cornwall full of troubles and nothing but when I lived there. I can feel for your pain because all we had down there was hell and pain. Yes there are some good people and they are stuck in hell. There are people down there that are the worst kind of people and Jamie I will not post here what I know about and it is mighty serious. No Jules has not lost her mind she knows.

Way to go Jamie ! I’m so happy to hear that justice has finally been served to you. There was absolutely no reason for all of these false allegations be allowed to do this to an innocent person. Your persistence and courage to stand for your rights has to be admired. When people lie, make false claims and degrade someone else, for whatever reason, they make themselves look pretty ridiculous and shallow. I am amazed that the powers at be allowed this to go on for as long as they did, even with you proving to them that you were… Read more »

“Where Do I Go To Get My Reputation Back?”

Lovely how the justice system works…poof the charges are gone…you can go…sorry bout that

Now add Mr Jamie to the list!!!

”The question is, should this indictment have ever been brought? Which office do I go to to get my reputation back? Who will reimburse my company for the economic jail it has been in.

Many will remember this quote from– Ray Donovan, Reagan’s Labor Secretary, after he was found not guilty of corruption charges

Jamie I found the song of Secret Agent Man song by Johnny Rivers and I was laughing, singing and dancing in my old age of 64 here. The song was sung in 1966 (my era) and favorite of celebrities.

Here it is my dear man and laugh:

Has anyone seen the budget “highlights?” What a freakin’ joke. Can you say buttering the electorate up before the election?

No way Hugger No way not even on my deathbed would I ever go back to Cornwall. I literally told my family (God is my witness) that I would come back and haunt the living hell out of them wherever they would be and I mean that fully. Their souls would never rest a day in their lives for burying me in Cornwall – not dead nor alive.

Hugger the government is all smoke and mirrors and you know all about that as well as myself. General Motors is gone to China and the US and Canada has shares and it is what Alex Jones calls “government motors”. LOL LOL. ROLF! I am having some good laughs here at this end. Jamie, Hugger and folks look on the Seaway News and I think that it was Lihou or someone posted a few lines about Jamie being let go of charges. That must has almost killed whoever wrote the article and chocked before he almost croaked. LOL LOL. ROLF!… Read more »

Mr Gilceg, Congratulations on having the charges against you dropped… it’s truly unfortunate what you had to endure the last couple of years. I may not agree with what you write at times… however, everyone is entitled to their opinion and it’s fantastic that you express your opinions in an open forum ….right or wrong. I’ve always respected you for your attempt at exposing the truth regarding numerous topics in our community, the strong majority of which are true and always come out in the wash. My advice to you sir is to keep calm and collected, if the above… Read more »

A dark and scary story but congratulations Jamie. Most could not have withstood the stress, injustice, or ugly people, their lies, nonsense or abuse

Hugger1

Jules, Jules, Jules….GM has NOT gone to China. They still have a very active North American presence. And the Canadian government has divested itself of GM. That’s one way the Cons were able to say they are in a “surplus.” They also reduced the contingency fund from $3 billion to $1 billion. Smoke and mirrors is being kind to the Cons. This budget rewards the rich on the backs of the middle-class AGAIN!!

David….I agree. However police investigating police and justice system investigating justice system?? I think we all know how that would turn out.

Congrats Jamie! Great news. Great article too. Don’t let the police intimidate you, most are not very hard to outsmart. Also, be careful around some if not most women. They like to play games like tag. She will tag you, then when you go to tag her and your hand is in the air she will scream for everyone to look and say you are about to hit her. Just saying. Anyway, again congrats on your win. Don’t let them get you down, haters gonna hate.

Jamie – you have learned something that few learn until it is too late.

The justice system exists for those who have money.

For the rest of us – those with no money – it is a legal system.

People might think on my comment for a bit.

I’m very happy the charges, etc were finally dropped.

What really surprises me is that the CSF, CSN and CNW all covered this story. What a strange little city we live in. In any other city this story would have gone unnoticed and not covered.

Perhaps. But if you weren’t in the media this never would have been reported on. That was the intent of my comment.

It is such great news to finally have them drop those fake charges,bad on them.They tried & failed to break you,they only succeeded in giving Cornwall another black eye.Here is hoping that Karma comes to Mike Bedard,police chief,Kilger,Crowns, Tammy Hart,Bob Nobel & rest of Xfilers members for all their lies & abuse of power. All in all Jamie you should feel very proud to have stayed the course & won.Walk proudly but carry a big stick,God only knows what they are dreaming up next.

Jamie I have been saying for a mighty long time that THERE IS NO JUSTICE ONLY JUST US and this is the absolute truth. Those with deep pockets get off with their crimes and the innocent people like yourself get hurt badly. Take a good look at that fraudulent passport at the top and I was in shock to see that someone put this all together with Frosty being a “SECRET AGENT MAN OF MI6” and speaking many languages.

These very agencies, Police Dept’s, Crown’s Office, were recently raked over the coals in “Project Truth” for doing their jobs poorly or not doing their jobs at all ! It would appear to me, that this absolute fiasco, should be investigated by “OCPC” . Where is the Police Service Board, sorry, that’s a ridiculous question !

I’d hug ya man, but I don’t want to be accused of cuttin’ Brock Frost’s grass.

Firing off a letter to the Stunned C’ing F’nt that let this travesty go on under her watch was the best $11.56 I’ve spent in a long time… though I really ought to go to small claims and see if I can get it back.

Congrats Jamie.

Ombudsman of Ontario should be screamed at for justice in all this crap, Jamie.
Your book of life will be of interest when it is concluded.
Immunity is not a good thing. It is abused so much by unscrupulous politicians and government paid officials of all stripes. Your example is proof of this.
All the best in your pursuit of compensation.

I forgot to include a suggestion for you. You need to contact CBC’s W5.

If they do not pick up this story with a broadcast as rich as this you could have an hour then a “To Be Continued” or perhaps be picked up for a made for TV series.

My good God.

I worked for years in the Just-Us system, in prison for women, Kingston Pen, Quinte jail and the Kingston courts. I also worked with the National Parole Board of Canada, and I tell you Jamie, you were lucky to have your charges dropped! Due process my foot! I had to attend court proceedings for over a year recently in this city on behalf of my daughter who, had a break down due to being over medicated by several cherry picking psychiatrists and it caused many problems overall, not to mention it almost cost my daughter her life and my health.… Read more »

Thank you Mr. North, I sat through much of that inquiry and other community inquirys in different cities regarding victims of systemic violence and Corrections Canada. At the end of the day, sadly, very little is resolved for the victims and their families, and therefore, the community. Cornwall is not unique in the way that it has it’s own lion share of dirty laundry, it’s just frustrating to wade through all the and it seems it is never done with. My battle continues today as a community advocate. With all do respect, “Enough”, Tree Hugger?! Sorry, but some things must… Read more »
