I am looking foreward to your show this afternoon.
As background I am sending the following which is part of the text of an e-mail sent last week by Deputy Minister of Justice /Attorney General, John Sims, to all Canadian Department of Justice employees. I think we pushed him out - with your help.
Deputy Minister of Justice ia a very, very, big job in Canada's Government. The Deputy Minister of Justice is the senior lawyer / civil servant in Canada. The Minister of Justice / Attorney General is above him but Ministers come and go with the Government because they are part of the cabinet and all members of cabinet are elected members of the House of Commons. The Deputy and Assistant Deputies of Justice know all the legal secrets in Canada.
We started targeting Johm Sims for fraud in court proceedings in late december and that was when the Prime Minister suspended Parliament. Parliament has now re-opened.
In late February and early March we cranked up our exposure of Sims on our web site.
Then we had visits to our web site from the Department of Justice and the Canadian Security establishment (i.e. military intelligence / echelon level) and other Canadian government agencies and then Sims announced he was retiring.
Below the message from Sims to his employees is a copy of my letter to Sims asking about his retirement that remains unanswered.
A Message from the Deputy Minister to all Employees
After 32 years in the Public Service of Canada, five as Deputy Minister, it is time for me to begin a new chapter in my life. I shall be retiring from the Public Service on April 1, 2010.
Many would agree that the position of Deputy Minister of Justice & Deputy Attorney General of Canada is the best legal job in the country. The breadth of issues, the complexity and relevance of the questions, the mix of law and policy, the impact and importance of our work on the lives of Canadians, the opportunity to make a difference – it is all endlessly fascinating and fulfilling.
But, if the work is exhilarating, the pace is relentless. After five years as Deputy, it is
time for me to move on...
"John Sims had been accused of lying in documents filed in Federal Court and he was he was due to appear in Federal Court on April 20, 2010, to defend against an accusation that had lied in written submissions that were filed in the Court in June, 2008, and which were used to dupe a Federal Court Prothonotary acting as case management judge in the WaterWarCrimes lawsuit. In fact, the Chief Justice of the Federal Court, Alan Lutfy had ordered Sims and all opposing legal counsel advise the Court by April 1, 2010 if he would be attending in person or by telephoneconference.
There are now eleven dead linked to the WaterWarCrimes lawsuit. John Sims has, so far, escaped with his life but his tactics of stalling and dealy, since Janaury 2008, contributed to the deaths of BC Chief Judge Hugh Stansfield, BC Supreme Court Justice David Vickers, retired BC Supreme Court Justice John Bouck, BC politician, Stan Hagen and retired BC civil servant, Jack Ebbels."
