Last week, I was approached by someone with an interesting story.
It's a tale of a guy who was on top of the world but came down pretty hard.
He used to be the owner of the City Motel in Fredericton.
His name is Jim.
Jim was doing ok until his whole world came crashing down. I mean REALLY DOWN!!!
Until his downfall, he used to mingle with the higher ups of society.
He leased the City Motel for 10 years. I might add that he also owned the Lobster Hut which was attached to the Motel.
Many politicians would stay over night in that building. Ohhhhh???? If walls could talk??? But Jim sure can!!!!
Jim took his business very seriously!
He told me that if he was still the owner of the Motel and he would have seen this blogger in the building? He would have asked me to leave the area. I wouldn't even be allowed in the parking lot. Only if I was invited to the motel by the politicians in advance.
He made certain the MLA'S had privacy from the media.
Speaking of privacy? He went so far as building this back door so they could maintain their privacy.
A meeting was arranged and I met with Jim.
He told me some very interesting tales raging from the politicians to the way the Fredericton Police Force handled his case.
Especially the story he told the Government that he would go public with some stories he seen in his motel?
The Government quickly reacted. It was sort of like my case of telling our elected officials that I would go public with the murder? < This is the only reason I was told that I was banned from the Legislature >
The Liberals quickly told me that they would haul me in court for Harassment!!!
I explained to Jim I was a blogger and anyone can become a journalist by writing their story and I'll blog it.
Too bad my recorder is broken because I would have just interviewed the guy. So we have to do it the hard way.
The interesting issue on this one? It was a Civil matter and the media still managed to put the story on the front page.
Also added was the Fredericton Police Force supervised the eviction.
What's with this????
Once this hit the front page? Jim’s life began his downward spiral.
Jim was the type of guy who was involved in all kinds of political events and he had a Carte Blanche to visit the P.C’S in their building but all this came to a sudden halt once he was told - In the future, he would have to make an appointment.
Jim didn't like the way he was treated so he threaten to go public with his stories of going ons in his Motel.
Well, he ended up in a mental ward for three months because of other issues.
Well? After chatting with the guy, he didn't look coo coo to me?
He sounded very sincere with his emotional stories.
I'll be blogging the tales during the next few weeks.
P.S. I hope I'm not shot on the streets because of this one?
Truly stay tuned....
MEDIA IN FREDERICTON ALMOST TOOK A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN FRIDAY!!! WE DON'T NEED MORE CUTS IN THE MEDIA SUCH AS GLOBAL NEWS!!!!
My God? These people were busy Friday. I don't know anything about these issue or events. I didn't take one single picture.
1- There was a court case which a murderer case might be overturn.
2- The Government announce a news conference about Bernard Richard Recommendations.
3- A news conference at City Hall announcing money for a new E-Plex in Fredericton.
4- Shawn Graham Birthday!!!
I might have forgotten a few more?
Yes, we don't need cuts in the media such as Global News is going to do in March.
Even a Blogger with ADHD couldn't have been in all those places.
I bet our local media enjoyed a nice relaxing drink Friday night.
I asked the driver to stop and I offered her drive to the bottle exchange place. She insisted in sitting in the back.
Once there, we noticed many vehicles lined up waiting to give their empties away.
The very rich don't discriminate. Sandra is force right in the back!!!! First come first serve....
Right behind the fumes of the many vehicles in the area. Very dangerous area if you ask moi???
Only in Fredericton where the less fortunate will be force to wait in the snow, rain or windy days to collect a few bucks to survive.
MAKES ME SICK!!!!!
