I phoned lawyer Danny Watters this morning and we had a good chat.
He’s ready to represent me in Saint John on August 16th.
I learn that my trial will have nothing to do with me being present at Atlantica as a blogger.
It will only focus on the Saint John Police officer John Park or Parks telling the court that he told me to leave the area but I didn’t so therefore I was knock on the ground and handcuff by three police officers.
I do have one question?
How the heck can we trust a police officer from the Saint John Police Force who deleted all my pictures.
I believe this is enough evidence to find me not guilty.
But there’s more to this story.
While in Saint John the legal Aid lawyer old stern < you know what! > told me that I’ll get a lawyer if the legal Aid accepts my application?
Once again, I was very confuse. I’m on social assistant so therefore why wouldn’t they accept my case?
I was told that it wasn’t enough of a serious charge.
In my opinion, having a record for the rest of life is serious enough!!!
Most people have to defend themselves in court.
Very strange indeed.
Surely, it’s those bureaucrats in Fredericton who came out with this new style of the way the poor will be treated in this province.
I walked into the Legal Aid New Brunswick office with my guards up.
The last time that I used the legal Aid system was 4 years ago when I was on U.I.C.!
I was charge with assault causing bloodily harm.
I was in a bar minding my own business and this guy approached me calling me a fruit...stupid and a frog!
Well he wasn’t a big guy but I was sitting in my chair and he was pointing his finger right in my face while standing up.
Well...minus two teeth later. He went to the bar and the police were called.
Once in court, I was told to go to legal Aid in Saint John.
Once there, I was confronted by an old hag who was very stern with me. She turned out ok once we realizes that I was the guy that was on talk of the town all the time.
At the end, the prosecutor threw the charges away.
Well, this time around? I’m in the Capital and it’s full of bureaucrats.
I have no used for bureaucrats whatsoever.
Especially after the way they treated me in the Legislature and other issues that I haven’t gone public yet.
I was ready for a heavy confrontation but it never happen.
I was met by a very friendly female.
She was a professional in her line of work.
She made me feel like I was a human being.
I might add that she’s very attractive. ..lol....
She asked a lot of questions. These are questions that must be answered before the system will grant you a lawyer.
I just said that I live in a rooming house and I got nothing.
It was sort of like when you apply for social assistant.
I told her what was the charge and she looked in the book of law to find out if my charges are serious enough to grant me a lawyer?
I left the office with a good feeling but it’s ot her decision but the bureaucrats and we know for a fact that we cannot trust those bureaucrats in the Capital.
Every bureaucrats should have the same attitude as this woman, She was very friendly.
Before entering the office, I have been told that our legal Aid system is the worse of the country.
At the end, it’s a waste of time for the judges because they have to explain the law to the poor souls who are defending themselves in court.
It is very strange.
Lets say that I would go to court? Can I bring a friend like Tim Smith with me? You know sitting beside me giving me some advices?
I believe the answer is no.
So if Legal denies my right to a lawyer?
I will have to defend my self.
I heard that the prosecutor will say that I should be on probation?
Why would I accept to be on probation if I didn’t do nothing wrong!
This sure looks like a witch-hunt by the bureaucrats against the poor people of New Brunswick!
Stay tune for more.....

I phoned lawyer Danny Watters this morning and we had a good chat.
I am a Tennant in A rooming House Located in Dieppe, NB.
Shortly after giving the caretaker the rent for Aug,2006.
She proceeded to inform me that she had rented the room for the month of September, she at first told me it was on the account of my using someone’s dish soap and hand soap in the bathroom.
Later she came clean and said that she know’s I’m gay and there are tenentls that are not comfortable with me being here.
They are afraid they may get HIV.
I signed your petition and I will get my friends to do so also. I wish you luck in your endevour for both our sakes.
I am forwarding your message to Charles Leblanc who has been blogging this issue.
We won't use your real name, just the message if you don't mind.
You should contact your local MLA because a new Tenants Rights Act was passed in April of this year.
Whether it has come 'into effect' I don't know, but you can certainly try to 'bluff' your landlady into believing it has.
The bill is Bill 35, was given Royal Assent on April 13 of this year.
The NEW act reads:
Section 1 of The Residential Tenancies Act, chapter R-10.2 of the Acts of New Brunswick, 1975, is amended
a) by repealing the definition "premises" and substituting the following:
"premises" means premises used for residential purposes,
(a) and includes
(i) any house, dwelling, mobile home, apartment, flat, tenement or similar place that is occupied or may be occupied by an individual as a residence,
(iii) a room in a boarding house or lodging house,
You should also contact the local rentalsman, because under the act, the landlord must provide a notice of termination, and it must be presented to the rentalsman by the landlord.
Don't let them get away with this, as these are your rights now. Good luck. Charles blog is available at http://oldmaison.blogspot.com and we will post it and try to get some answers for you on the application of the new act.

This week, I walked passed the Irving Golden Ball in Saint John and guess who came in with his vehicle at the same time?
It was Kenneth Irving himself!!!
The funny part about this little confrontation was I was wearing my anti-Atlantica t-shirt.
Sure was funny. Any normal human being would have quickly zipped up their jacket but not this guy.
Kenneth recognized me and I was covering my t-shirt and said - I don’t know if you wish to chat with me with the t-shirt I’m wearing???
I believe it was the first time that he ever saw the anti-Atlantica T-shirt. It was given to me after I left the jail cell.
The individual knew that I wasn’t a protester so they gave me a free one. Hey? I’m on social assistant so I can use a new shirt...lol...
I had a very good chat with the Irving Billionaire.
As a manner of fact? It went so good that his phone rang but he never took the call.
I will not disclosed our 10 to 15 minute chat because it’s between me and Kenneth.
He’s a truly nice guy. He’s one of the Irvings that I truly enjoy chatting with.
There’s no hold bars and the cards are on the table.
But I will add one thing?
At the end of the conversation, I quickly went for my camera in my pouch.
If there would have been security personal around?
I would have been shot! It goes to show you that we live in a beautiful part of the world.
Where else could Billionaires walk around freely and safely???
Going back to the camera?
I said- Ok....the party over!!!
Lets take a picture of me and you!!!
Kenneth didn’t seems to enjoy having his picture taken. I reminded the Billionaire that I have his cousin J.D. Irving on front blog and since you’re the one that I truly respect? Come on! One picture??
He didn’t like having his picture taken and I respect his privacy. I follow the same action with his uncle Jack. I chatted with him last month but he didn't wish to have his picture taken.
He did allow me to take a picture of the vehicle he was driving.
Pretty one eh???
Yes, it was nice to meet Kenneth Irving face to face again and as I said in the past and I will say it again.
I got nothing against the Irvings.
They’re fine individuals of the society but it’s the Management that I can’t stand.
Too bad that I didn’t get a picture but you readers know that I wouldn’t spend the time blogging a false story like this one.
There’s never a dull moment in my life.
I wonder if the Irvings will print my letter? This is serious stuff!!!!!
To the Editor,
Once is bad enough but twice? I must write a letter of objection to your paper. On July 26,2006 you printed a headline in the court section - Protesters enter not guilty plea.
I wish to make myself absolutely clear on this issue.
I wasn’t a protester. I was covering Atlantica for my blog.
I was in the area when the protesters ran through the doors at the Trade Convention Centre.
As any good journalist. I know a good scoop when I saw one. I was with the media taking pictures for my blog.
The police officers bypassed the protesters and the media. They zeroed in on this little blogger.
The question is why?
I might add that once in jail. The Saint John Police Force deleted all my pictures.
The media of CFBC and CBC covered my day in court in a very good manner. They called me a Blogger but your paper called me a protester.
The question is why?
The Irvings owns all the major newspapers in this province therefore bloggers will be the journalism style of the future.
This court trial will determine how bloggers should be treated in New Brunswick.
It is a first in this Province. This is a very important issue.
I just wish to make myself clear to your readers that I wasn’t a protester but a blogger.
Is his name John Park or John Parks??? This John Parks laid the charge against me at Atlantica. He told the courts that he told me to leave the area and I didn't!
This is a big lie!!!!
Is John Park or Parks married to an Irving Employee???
Why would a member of the Saint John Police Forve lie to get me convicted?
This coming from a member of the Saint John Police Force should be a concern to everyone.
Muffin and Hurricaine are ready to go. They would make a good pet.
