I was going to go after the media in this post, but I'll save slagging the media for the next post. I'm going to share some information in this post that I was going to keep quiet about until I found a lawyer willing to take on this matter. But after the most recent lawyer … Continue reading Crimes were committed.
Or How the Minister of National Defence Controls ALL aspects of the military Justice System. It may seem hard to believe, but the Minister of National Defence is probably one of the most powerful ministers in the Canadian Government. And I don't mean this because the minister controls the Department of National Defence and the … Continue reading The Chain of Command
So, it turns out that Minister Sajjan not only refused to allow the Canadian Forces Ombudsman to investigate complaints against General Jonathan Vance, but Sajjan also started to avoid communication with the Office of the Ombudsman. What is really disappointing about this whole sad affair is that it illustrates how much power is concentrated in … Continue reading The more things change, the more they stay the same
Okay, so I haven't been updating this blog as frequently as I used to, and there are reasons for that.We'll have to wait and see.But this should get interesting this time around. On to other news. It looks as if the Canadian Armed Forces have yet another little shit storm brewing on the horizon.It seems … Continue reading In a holding pattern
Back in November of 2020, the Military Police Complaints Commission released their final report of their review of the 2015 through 2018 portion of CFNIS investigation GO 2011-5754. Although it was just a review, and although the review had to be conducted as per rules that the Canadian Armed Forces shaped, the MPCC did find … Continue reading A little bit of good news.
Okay, so my family tree on the maternal side of my family just got a little more detailed. I was contacted last week by the stepdaughter of Jean-Yves Dagenais. Jean-Yves Dagenais is my uncle. He's the younger brother of my mother. Albert Lawrence Dagenais was my other uncle. I knew Uncle Al. When Richard's violence … Continue reading My family tree just got a little larger
In this post I will critique the Military Police Complaints Commission Final Report MPCC 2018-030. This will be a somewhat long read, but it will be worth it. I'm not going to critique each and every item in MPCC 2018-030. I'm just going to critique the items that I feel need to be critiqued or … Continue reading My two-cents on MPCC 2018-030
I haven't update my blog recently as I've been sitting on this report for the last month. In many ways this report is an unexpected Christmas present. Unlike in 2013, this time around the Military Police Complaints Commission is of the opinion that I was the victim of sexual abuse at the hands of P.S.. … Continue reading Final Report of MPCC Review 2018-030
I received a letter today from the Military Police Complaits Commission dated June 19, 2020. The letter informs me that the MPCC issued their interim report to the Canadian Forces Provost Marshal on June 17th, 2020 and that they are now awaiting the response from the Canadian Forces Provost Marshal. How much hope am I … Continue reading An update letter from the MPCC
Just shaking the family tree to see what falls out.
On Thursday July 30th, 2020 I was interviewed at the Vancouver Police Department headquarters at 2120 Cambie Street. This was in realtion to another even of abuse that occured on Canadian Forces Base Namao. So far my ratio with the CFNIS is 50/50. P.S. went down in flames. I don't think I'll ever ascertain exactly … Continue reading Another investigation
In the school year of 1985 - 1986 I was in grade 8 at Pierre Laporte Junior High in what used to be North York, Ontario. Active Surplus was a dealer down on Queen Street West between University and Spadina that sold new electronic components along with used surplus electronic equipment. Active Surplus had just … Continue reading Lasers and things.
During my July 30th 2020 interview with the CFNIS, as I read off my statement, a question kept popping up in the back of my head.If Richard was so disinterested in raising me, who did? Of course, there's my mother, but she only lived with me until I was 5. After that, I saw her … Continue reading So, who raised me?
Every now and again I get weird phone calls related to my blog. The funny thing is, I haven't really put my phone number out there.
The media in this country is a fickle beast of sorts. I realize that media consolidation is a major factor. Back in the good ol' days, every newspaper practically had it's own editorial board that would decide what stories to investigate and what stories to pass on. But now with media consolidation, one editor can … Continue reading The media strikes again.
Other than the fact that his name was Richard Wayne Gill and that he was in the Canadian Armed Forces, I honestly can't tell you anything about my father. I know he worked with the Sea Kings out in Shearwater. I know that he worked on the Argus aircraft at Summerside I know he worked … Continue reading Who was my father?
That one sentence has always stuck with me since I first read it when I obtained the Certified Tribunal Records from the Military Police Complaints Commission when I made my application to Federal Court in February of 2013. The conversation between P.S. and Sgt. Robert Jon HancockFrom the Military Police Complaints CommisisonCertified Tribunal Records 2013 … Continue reading “Anything he was involved in as a youth has already been handled by the military”
It's amazing and somewhat disturbing how the Department of National Defence still gloats about the findings of the Military Police Complaints Commission. If one wishes to make a complaint against the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service, one does so at their own risk. This risk is especially true for a civilian with no connection to … Continue reading The Military Police Complaints Commission
I might have the ear of a news reporter that is willing to look at my matter. This reporter is more interested in some of the results I have recevied from the Department of National Defence in response to my various Access to Information requests. The most recent results I recevied were from an Access … Continue reading DND and the art of hiding stuff
During the July 30th interview at VPD headquarters, one of the investigators kept mentioning that this case would be tough due to the 40 years that have passed. Well, this isn't exactly true. Former Canadian Armed Forces corporal Donald Joseph Sullivan was convicted in 2019 for molesting numerous boys from the Ottawa area in the … Continue reading 40 years
