PLEASE SIGN our Petition to the Attorney General of Ontario to have the wrongful charges dropped against Jamie Gilcig and Investigate the event fully.


It’s very rare that I appeal to the community and there are some that will suggest that this appeal is strictly for myself; maybe for selfish reasons, but it’s certainly not meant to be treated.

On February 7th my life changed.  I had gone to court to try and collect from a client.  There was no defense for them really.

My phone woke late at night and my life has changed since.   Cornwall Police Cst McGregor stated that I had made a threatening phone call and warned me not to do so again.

I was bewildered and half asleep.   I never made any such call.  The Cst said my number was on this person’s caller id.   I stumbled to the dark and turned on my computer and learned about spoofing.  I clearly had been spoofed.  I emailed our chief late that night who emailed back that Saturday asking for my email address which was weird as we had just emailed each other?

That Sunday was our 5th anniversary event for CFN and I’d been busy all morning getting ready and then setting up for the afternoon event.

That night I was again awakened by Cst McGregor.  He informed me that I had to attend the station as I’d called the party back after having been warned.  It was said that this time I’d threatened to kill them.  It was incredulous and I was in shock.

The next day I was put in a cell, charged, released after being given conditions and of course smeared in the police blotter which the media picked up.  It’s all over the net now with other sites picking up the story as well.

Shortly thereafter Cst McGregor phone me, again waking me at night demanding I take content down from this newspaper or he would charge me with breach.   At that point I asked him to put that in writing and suggested I come down to the station and get it.

I instead called my paralegal; Mr. James Moak,  and that has been the last communication I’ve received from Cst. McGregor.

At no point did the police review my phone or phone records.

The crown; Ms Jennifer Burke, had refused to issue a production order for my phone records.  A production order comes from the phone provider.  She had one from the complainant which showed my number calling them and her disclosure states that I made calls on specific dates, at specific times, and of  specific duration.

My phone and phone records clearly showed I never made a single such call.   When we asked Ms Burke to issue her refusal in writing she issued a production order.

That production order, issued over three months ago also stated that I did not make the calls.

Ms Burke was removed from the case and replaced with one Julie C Scott.  To date my charges still have not been dropped by the crown.

We won’t even go into the cost of the legal bill to anyone going through this case of what appears to be abuse or gaming of the system; most likely for political reasons.

Ironically a party shared with me that a City Councilor who also runs Heart of the City was heard telling a member of the DBIA that I was going to be taken care of back in December 2013.   One of the gold sponsors of Heart of the City is one Neil Burke who happens to be Jennifer Burke’s dad.

Ms Burke also was prosecuting a very bizarre A10 (restraining order) complaint against me by South Stormont Deputy Mayor Tammy Hart.  In her disclosure at no point is fear mentioned by Ms Hart who complained of receiving emails from me and that I’d shot video of her at Township council.

Ms Burke pursued that complaint and at one point even tried to have Mr. Moak pulled from the case. (which he wasn’t)

Can you imagine if you or one of your friends or family members were put through this?  As someone who had zero trouble with the law before, living nearly 50 years, can you imagine being put in a jail cell or being finger printed?  Can you imagine people calling you from all over the world asking about it?

Ironically a few years before he died I had a facebook friend from someone who knew exactly what it was like to be framed.   Gerry Conlon was very supportive even up to about a month before he died.

This case isn’t about me in the big picture.  It’s about a justice system in Ontario that seems to be loaded down in politics and cronyism and really doesn’t care how much of the court’s time and public purse gets spent.

Crown attorney’s appear to have no checks or balances.  No real accountability.    Nor for the most part, except for gross cases in the extreme do police officers, and even our Attorney General is a partisan position.

I’ve only met Madame Meilleur once.   I can’t imagine her knowingly allowing this to happen to anyone in Ontario.

I sent an email out to all of our MPP’s in Ontario and had a few responses back, all of support.

Our MPP did send a letter to the AG.

mcdonell letter to AG

As of September 11, the day of this piece, there has been no communication from the AG’s office.

The AG’s office also has refused to divulge any numbers about the Cornwall office financials as the buzz is that this office under Mr. Simard has one of the highest per capita uses of public dollars in the province.

This case runs deep and sadly has many political tentacles.  Is it unique?  Is it simply an oversight and maybe a few people gaming the system?

Frankly I hope so.  One of our local criminal lawyers once said media should spend more time in courtrooms because we were the only defense the public had from abuse.  She may have been right…

I want my charges dropped and my innocence made categorically clear.  I want those responsible held accountable.  I don’t want anyone, no matter whom, to ever go through this.  If this can be done to me; it can be done to anyone.

Ontario deserves better.  Ontarian’s deserve better.


I am asking people that care about the justice system of our province to step up and not only sign the petition below, but to contact the Attorney General’s office in Toronto.

Thank you all sincerely,
