LESLEY UNCHAINED

For anyone who might be interested, Lesley North has thrown down the gauntlet and sent me a registered letter.  I will now post the unedited letter with translation and response:


I received the letter on Friday, September 19, 2014.  It was posted on the 17th of September.

Translation:  I would guess that "dissembling your live" in Lesley's lexicon means that she is planning on ruining my life, although I could be wrong. I can only assume that her response to me on Facebook was sent to the phony account set up in my name by one of Lesley's friends as I do not recall ever receiving it. I don't know about you, dear reader, but what Lesley has stated in writing and signed is a threat against me.  Since her friends have already called the police on me a half a dozen times for no good reason and she stated on line that I was "under police investigation" when I wasn't, I can only guess what she and her friends have in store for me. 

As to an apology, I can only say that the statements I made were common knowledge and reported to me by numerous sources, therefore I can only apologize for being misinformed and then publishing those erroneous facts.  If this caused Ms. North any angst, I can empathize because there have been many instances where I was smeared and lied about in blogs and on Facebook by members of the group Ms. North associates with.  The blog that often publishes such slander does not have the fortitude to identify any of the writers, chosing instead to adopt pseudonyms.  I have also heard that Ms. North is a regular contributor to that blog but I cannot verify it except to say that grammar and spelling errors are consistent both here and in certain posts on that other blog.

As a former business owner myself, I understand how difficult it is to make a living that way. I would never disparage someone else's business, especially one who enjoys such a sterling reputation as Ms. North.  I did however remark in a post that a couple of Saturdays ago at around 3:00 p.m. Jarvis Street was deserted. So sorry about that really. I remember Jarvis Street as a busy place on Saturday afternoons.

I was not shocked nor surprised about Ms. North's letter, only concerned about her tone. Yes, I was sued successfully for slander by Jim Thibert using taxpayer money alloted to the EDTC to bring in new business and tourism to Fort Erie. This is the man who has gone on record in council meetings comparing the town to a prostitute and just recently called duly elected councillors "dweebs" because they dared to discuss a report prepared by the CAO and the town solicitor regarding the MOU between the town and the EDTC.  "Dweebs" is actually a very mild term given Thibert's propensity for the profane.  I will continue to be a thorn in the side of those who abuse their power.  Ms. North has become involved with some very questionable characters, especially Royal Greer who has quite a reputation for harassment and stalking. Greer's neighbours and some of his victims have been getting together to compare notes.  I went by his house to get his license plate and address information because there may be legal action taken, not by me, but by others who have been harassed by him.

  1. Ms. North's letter is another example of what happens when ignorance meets deceit.

  2. Please, oh please tell me that this is some kind of joke. I do believe that this group are losing their collective sanities.

    To see this along with post after post on a half dozen FB pages by them and their group of minions, that just repeats ad nausium, is just proving who the real ones that are using words to chase away development.
    I cant wait till all my out of town friends and relatives read this blog piece. You will be able to hear their collective laughter all over Ontario.

  3. Sharon, I get that you posted this diatribe. It is important that you stand up to this utter nonsense and let everyone know that you have been threatened and promised, "although anything she does is usually done with all the rules and regulations in Canada taken into account".
    she surely doesn't respect or understand the court system of this country,
    if she did she would acknowledge that doug martin under oath ADMITTED that Heather Salter according to senior staff had no grounds for a Harassment lawsuit against Councillors.

    I am not making light of her promise to disassemble every aspect of your life. Everyone knows this mob has threatened the likes of Kim Craitor to the point of him missing an important scheduled meeting here in Fort Erie and The Four have been threatened for four years since being elected by wide margins of Canadians.

    Let's get back to the election. I'd like to pursue such matters as: Is Councillor Pessaro not in Conflict of Interest in his ambiguous dealings regarding the Kinsmen Pool. Who is he acting on behalf, other than himself? Don't you think it appears that he is buying votes? Isn't it kind of the reverse of the gas plant in Oakville for votes? Tear a building down to get votes / rebuild a pool that should be torn down.
    I agree with Sue Saltzer a wonderful new pool complex with grants for a sensible project is a wonderful plan.

    too much time has been wasted already.

  4. Another jeweler or a prop of a trinket store looking for a way to justify a storefront business that wouldnt be out of place on the Andy Griffith show in the 1960's. Didnt she learn anything watching Jewler Doug tread water then sink out of site this election? Probly vitamin defficiencies. Not the most healthy looking person Ive seen lately and pretty stressed last time I was in planet Venus storefront. All those grammer, mistaken word choices, and spelling probly a sign of something much deeper wrong in her old cranial computer. Thank for the share, just when it didnt seem those characters on planet Jarvis could get any weirder....

  6. If the ninja site suggests not to waste your vote on Oct 27 is it feasible to ask that they be specific about the four they speak about for those of us are not following what appears to be an inside soap opera?? Also maybe be more specific about who the voters should vote for. Its been long understood that part time website only seems to publish posts from insiders or clingons to the insiders. We sent this to their site so lets see if its posted or if its not, proving this point. Senseless Ron maybe?? Ron as in Ronald McDonald the junkfood clown??Who or what is this "the four" they speak of ??

    1. Here is the short version: I started The Crystal Beach Strand back in 2002; the Strand Blog came shortly after. It was in answer to an idea to sell off the parking lots in the Bay Beach Properties. A petition campaign and the election of a young man to represent Crystal Beach on council helped put an end to that idea. Then a new mayor (Doug Martin) was elected as well as some new members of council. Soon , the Bay Beach Properties came into play again as the town decided to enter in a P-3 agreement with a high rise developer to build two 12 Story buildings on the public beachfront property in exchange for "amenities" that would improve the beach. Many of us didn't want any part of our public land given over to developers anywhere - especially on the last piece of public beachfront land in Crystal Beach. The town had only purchased the property in 2001. So a nasty fight ensued and the 2010 municipal election was hotly contested. People got together and worked for candidates who would stop the giving away of the public Bay Beach Properties. Ann Marie Noyes ran against Doug Martin and lost to him by five votes. Candidates in Ward 3 (Bob Steckley) Ward 4 (John Hill) Ward 5 (Don Lubberts) and Ward 6 (Paul Collard) were elected by people who were tired of the Old Guard running the town.

      Since just after the 2010 election, a group of people has done everything it can to get the four councillors out of office. Thus, a Conflict of Interest lawsuit against the four and much, much more, including a couple of blogs devoted to trashing the four and anyone who supports them. Facebook has been used extensively to ruin reputations and smear anyone who stood up against the Old Guard. Notice that the bloggers do not identify themselves. They are a bunch of losers who are encouraged by those who are hoping to get the balance of power back in the upcoming election. BTW, Sensei Ron is probably a guy named Greg Bonito.

    Hah...apparently I was giving them too much credit when I said they act like a bunch of 10 yr olds. At least my 10 yr old knows how to use spell/grammer check! If you are going to make an effort to threaten someone with a registered letter (with the advice of a lawyer), you would think that you would try not to sound like a joke. Imagine a judge trying to read this? Then again, it may support a plea of insanity. I would also love to meet the lawyer that would support threats of "disassembling your life" in a REGISTERED letter. Idiots...

  8. I think that letter was laughable, but the severe hatred in the threats was very sad indeed. She is best ignored.
    One can debate and have a different perspective, but when there is no reasoning it is pointless to pay her any more attention.

  9. As you say "the severe hatred in the threats was very sad indeed" but to ignore her threats is a mistake.
    She is a recognized and rewarded supporter of the Martin/Thibert clan and has a reputation of doing the "dirty work" for them.
    Her now registered threat should reflect directly back to those that have instigated and incited her documented and potentially dangerous actions.

  10. Thanks for the summary Ms. Editor, from many of the comments and fingerpointing it was getting to the point where it is hard to tell who or what is the point of some of the complaints. I remember a few years ago there was a call for business types to submit proposals to help the Bay beach experience by adding a restaurant or two to the site. A "lobster" restaurant was mentioned although ardly what seemed at the time to be within budget or style for many of the family types coming there for the day. Now even the Pines stands empty, so I guess the lobsters can rest easy at least for now. As well as some of the smaller food venues in the area of the beach.

  11. if Steve Pessaro is so strongly supporting a public pool, why then was he against enhancing a public beachfront and promoting public change rooms and a public pavilion with picnic tables, like a pavilion is suppose to have?

    why did he follow Mayor Martin's message that all of us in Crystal Beach hate all development just because we didn't want ONE private condo development overtaking our entire beachfront public property?

    1. Remember too that he was once the head of Shorewalk and still did not come out in favour of keeping all the waterfront properties free of high rise developments. The Molinaro Tower would have done irreparable harm to the environment (sump pump spewing toxic water from underground garage into the bay;) disruption/possible destruction of the Fowler's Toad, often referred to as the "canary of the beach" as its health and welfare indicate the health of the beach; and the narrowing of access points to the public beach by the private development. To the Shorewalk people, it is all about access and they lost a lot of support when they failed to speak out against the private development of the last piece of public beachfront land in Crystal Beach. Access would have been through a narrow laneway, probably well-camouflaged to discourage people from using that point.

  12. You might just want to concern yourselves with the content of the letter rather than the grammar.

  13. I think Leslie has had too much Koolaide! How do you write a letter with a Sept. 5th cease & remove all FB comments but sign it on Sept. 17th. Obviously she has a problem with reading a simple calendar. Her threats while odd seem to be coming from someone who has "Lost the Plot". It is very doubtful that she has gotten any legal advice from a real lawyer maybe she spoke to a "no longer registered as a legal aide person" who as I recall is also party to the ninja rants!
    Again, the idiots from the Ninja group are threatening anyone who gives them a ahrd time. I guess they are getting frustrated with the full disclosure of the COI doc's & their perceived heroes are looking incompetent. The truth is hard to take when you have been living in a world of mis-information & being led down the garden path. Too Bad so Sad for the dark side.

  14. Its time to call the Bay beach property what it is, namely a waterfront park. A piece of land purchased with our tax money, a deal that went through with the wishes of the vendor that it be public land as sold to the town, (not to mention the long history of that property being used as a waterfront destination for thousands of people visiting the area.) A great history to remember and expand upon. Say it to yourself. Bay beach waterfront park. The chainlink fencing and the restrictive nature of the layout has to be changed. Restrict parking to the north side of Erie road, plant a lot of trees for shade, add some lawns and pathways,and allow a few vendors to sell a bit of food. A park. A waterfront park. Whats it going to take??

  15. WAAAAAAA! A tad over sensitive or is she just homophobic?

  16. Seriously, Leslie must be getting her legal advice from Pete's legal team. Lol
    "Disassembling your life" is the advice they gave her. That's just as stupid as Pete's legal team advising him how to get himself fired as a volunteer on the BBIA board of directors.
    Now we truly know these people are just lying idiots who continuously make asses out of themselves with all their hatred posts.
    Grow up ffs.

  17. Isn't that a tad disparaging to lying idiots and asses?

  18. Glad to see that it looks like a foundation is on the way for the townhouse construction on Schooley Rd. That property was cleared a long time ago. The word is that the Marz subdivision at the end of Erie Rd. is also selling very well. Now that's the way to help our community and businesses not a 12 storey condo on our only public beachfront!

    ReplyDelete
  19. The schooley rd development is for 7 single family homes. The townhouse dev. is in behind. according to the approved plan of sub-division.

  20. Has the Didntja site ever put foreward a constructive idea about improving some existing infrastructure or establishing a motion to create a project to help someone around town?? I dont recall. Neither could they because they havent. But the door always remains open when they get over cartoonish comments, we remain waiting. I recall that being said before.

  21. Well,well. The ninja blog boasts about its truthiness, yet its contributors hide behind fake names. Greg Bonito posted late Friday under his pseudonym Sensei Ron which he is neither. Comments and the posting of the document may prove very problematic for Bonito. We now have photographic proof that Greg Bonito posted the information on the ninja blog. The matter has been turned over to the lawyers. This is a very serious breach of court protocol and Bonito posted his email on his original post. Changed it quickly. Too late. Lawyers have a screen shot.

    There is just so much of this constant attack on the integrity of four duly-elected representatives of the people that the ultimate cost to the taxpayers for this frivolous and vexatious lawsuit will be in the millions. Worth a community pool or two.

    This lawsuit was designed and created in a bare-faced attempt to upset the democratic process and deny the voters' right to elect whom they want. This council has accomplished a lot despite the obvious plan to destroy the four.

    1. If we set aside for the moment the question of the potential legal issues regarding the posting of the transcript (which I assume will be properly dealt with) do you have any comment on it's content?

    2. Well, Che, it is what it is. Cross examination of John Hill. I have read a lot of the cross examinations and the timeline of events and studied the case. I believe the whole case is based on something that did not happen. Heather Salter's harassment complaint was never followed up because there was no merit to it. There were threats of lawsuits by Heather that never materialized because she had no grounds i.e. This whole case was put together by Martin and Thibert because they wanted to destroy the opposition.

  22. The letter it appears to be a sad case of extreme sour grapes , they the Jarvis Street mob are seeing their diatribes and bile that they constantly spew blowing up in their collective faces, so they have to find another victim to blame their wasted efforts on, so they have picked upon a lady who has stood for the truth, all along with this unending venom, that has been directed at councillors that have withstood the slings and arrows that were aimed in there direction for the past four years , your staunch support for what is right and honorable in the blood sport known as Fort Erie politics has finally driven the haters , bonkers. The whole thing is about the power to spend our tax dollars as they see fit ,a poer that the Chamber Pot Gang have had since the early 1950s when the Mayor of Fort Erie and the founder of the Chamber Pot , were one and the same person, they the C of C have controlled the tiny Town of Fort Erie ever since,with amalgamation of the outlying communities ,Ridgeway, Crystal Beach , Crescent Park, Stevensville and Douglastown/Black Creek they had fresh sheep to shear, how dare they throw the thieves out and vote for their own councillors, this election the C of C are running two people for Mayor and C of C members, in every ward. a De- Facto takeover of our Town. The FETDC is already loaded with C of C members, They are not a true business group, they are a poltical interest group.a politcal party. They even had a go, The St Catharines Chamber demanding that candidates for Mayor fill out their questionaire , about what they intend to do for them That's what I call Chuztpah.!!,

  24. Absolutely correct Porgey!!

    .......not to down play the serious threat this letter presents to 1 of the few people here with the guts to speak out , Sharon Bowers

    ..... but I have to point out folks that with the election a few very short weeks away and the CHAMBER OF COMMERCE/ EDTC with old boy money heavily backing their particular brand of dirt bag, we have to get behind the good people running and support them to the fullest NOW!!

    4 good men of conscience stood up for the whole town a couple years ago and have had nothing but grief ever since. I hope their personal sacrifice has not been in vain and the old school dirty FE politics return to benefit a few insiders with power and thus $$$$$$$.

    Our tax dollars are for the whole town's benefit not these leeches, opportunists and thieves of the public purse. Their self serving agenda of the past decades has driven this town into the mess it is today.

  25. What unmitigated arrogance, preposterous posturing, and incredible lack of proofreading. This text would be unimaginable if I didn't see it myself. Imagine making such transparent threats in a letter you hope to use to seek legal redress. The court should lock her up for abysmal grammatical crimes against the Canadian lexicon.
