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.
