Perry has now spent 72 days in jail – for stepping up to the plate to protect children.
Apparently all is as well as can be expected with Perry.
He is scheduled to appear at the courthouse in Kingston Ontario at 9 am tomorrow morning. This is a hearing of some sort related to his appeal. The public can attend.
Place: Frontenac County Court House
Address: 5 Court Street.
Time: 0900 hours (9 am)
Date: Tuesday, 29 April 2008
I don’t know if or not Perry’s lawyer Lawrence Greespon will be there. I certainly hope so.
Helen and 16-year-old Monica (“Bird”) will be arriving in Ontario today. They will be in Kingston tomorrow morning.
If you can make your way to the courthouse in Kingston to show your support for Perry and his family please please do so. They need us.
Hearings resume at 0930 hours (9:30 am) this morning, Monday, 28 April 2009. The schedule on the Cornwall Public Inquiry website for the week is as follows:
Leo Courville – Former Chair, Cornwall Police Services Board
Rick Trew – Inspector, Cornwall Community Police Service
Brian Payment – Constable (retired), Cornwall Community Police Service
Jeff Carroll – Detective Sergeant, Cornwall Community Police Service
Stuart MacDonald – Staff Inspector (retired), Cornwall Community Police Service
Brian Snyder – Staff Sergeant, Cornwall Community Police Service
Once again there are no dates affiliated with each witness. Leo Courville is at the top of the list. I had understood he had court commitments on Monday and would be unable to return on that day to complete his testimony. Perhaps he has rescheduled his work load? We shall see.
No sign as yet on the witness list of former Chief Claude Shaver. I have heard via the grapevine that he will take the stand.
I anticipate that former acting Chief Carl Johnston will also be called. If not, he certainly should. For starters he should be called to explain the role he played in deceiving the public with those thoroughly misleading press releases of 11 January and 02 February 1994 – which were presumably put out in the name of transparency to inform the public!
And, what of Justice Colin McKinnon? Will he be called? He should definitely be called to tell us more about his long term involvement with the Cornwall Police Service and Chief Shaver, especially as it directly or indirectly relates to any and all involvement with any and all persons directly and/or indirectly connected to the illegal $32,000 pay-off and gagging of David Silmser.
What, for that matter, of John Callaghan? Some time ago I was told that John Callaghan himself was involved in those early days. It seems that during the appeal of the Board of Inquiry’s decision re Perry Mr. Callaghan stood up in Divisional Court all set to argue on the CPS’behalf. One of the judges is said to have told Callaghan in no uncertain terms to sit down and be quiet.
Is this fact? If yes, what then was the nature and extent of John Callaghan’s involvement with the Police Services against Perry Dunlop? Was he perhaps the lawyer who advised the Cornwall Police Service and/or CPS Board to cover-up with the release of those two deceptive press releases?
What role if any did Callaghan and/or McKinnon play in royally deceiving and duping the public with those press releases?
Does that relate to institutional response? I think it does. I think the public should know the name of any lawyer who is party in any way, shape or form to such a deliberate deception of the masses. If it was neither Callaghan or McKinnon, then, who? We have not only a need but I do believe a right to know.
Note the articles: 25 April 2008: Justice department blocked Toronto corruption probe, says investigator. Police corruption! And only six of 12 officers charged because the office of the Ontario Attorney General says an “experienced” officer can only deal with a maximum of seven charges of conspiracy on one indictment!!! And then everyone “walks”?
This is supposed to instil faith in the masses?
I have the 11 January 1994 letter of Bryce Geoffrey (David Silmser lawyer) to CPS, and Constable Heidi Sebalj scanned and ready to post. I spent some time last night with a finicky scanner. By the time the deed was done I decided I had had enough and opted to crawl into bed 🙂 Will get it and other documents up shortly. Keep an eye on New to the Site on the Home page.
Enough for now,
