MARLENE BERGSMA, STANDARD STAFF REPORTER LIED
October 14th 2010, Page A3
Direct quote: “The unemployed Merritton environmentalist is campaigning on an allegation that city hall is corrupt because a neighbour’s fine for failing to shovel a snowy walk was reversed when the neighbour was able to offer a satisfactory explanation to city staff and promised to shovel his sidewalk in the future.”
MARLENE BERGSMA YOU ARE A LIAR!
THE ST.CATHARINES STANDARD, PUBLISHER, SENIOR EDITOR AND CITY EDITOR YOU ARE LIARS!
All the evidence including the transcript and voice recording of Councillor Stevens’ answering machine message is on this blog. The Standard has censorsed the truth from the public for months. Now in an election campaign Mayor McMullan has fear that the truth is made public so Bergsma lies to save him. Why else would Bergsma make a public lie, an intentional lie, have it published and distributed in the thousands including on the web?
You are a liar Bergsma! First of all Mark Leeson is not a neighbour, look at a map of Merritton.
You are a liar Bergsma! Second lie, I have not said at any time, including to you, that city hall is corrupt. I have said that Mayor McMullan is corrupt! I have said that Merritton Ward Councillor Jennie Stevens is corrupt!
You are a liar Bergsma! Third lie, the By-Law fine under By-Law 2008-315 was not reversed by city staff. The lawful by-law fine was fixed by Mayor McMullan. Mark Leeson had tried to explain to city staff that he had gone away to Cuba and was not there to shovel the snow. City staff told him that as he knew he was going to be away from home he should have organised that someone shovel his sidewalk. Lesson was told the fine stood. He then called Councillor Stevens and the result was the answering machine message.
You are a liar Bergsma! Fourth lie, the explanation by Leeson was not taken as satisfactory and he was told the fine stood.
You are a liar Bergsma! Fifth lie, Mark Leeson never promised anyone at city that he would shovel his sidewalk in the future.
When Mark Leeson read this he could only laugh at you and your lies.
Who put Marlene Bergsma, a St.Catharines Standard long time staff reporter to lie? Who has everything to lose once I take legal action? Who has lied to the public? Who has a campaign on nothing but falsehoods? Who has a political career in jeopardy when the truth is fully public? Mayor McMullan! Merritton Ward Councillor Jennie Stevens! I have never said anything about city hall. I have said and still say now Mayor McMullan and Councillor Jennie Stevens are corrupt. Mayor McMullan is in breach of the Municipal Act. Mayor McMullan is in breach of the Charter of Rights. Mayor McMullan has committed perjury of Oath of Office. Councillor Stevens has breached the Municipal Act, Charter of Rights and has perjured her Oath of Office. Marlene Bergsma has lied and her superiors allowed the lie to be published. There has to be a reason.
The actions by Councillor Stevens and Mayor McMullan have also brought more action. A local newsletter published by The Winners Circle had broken the story in their Summer Edition. They printed a transcript of Councillor Stevens’ answering machine message. Truth is a dangerous weapon to corrupt elected public servants. Councillor Stevens didn’t like this at all. Her mother, Mrs. Pat Lindal didn’t like this at all. Now Mrs. Pat Lindal is a candidate in the Municipal Elections for Regional Council. Mrs. Pat Lindal if elected would have to swear an oath to serve the community and all its members equally and fairly without bias. Mrs. Pat Lindal didn’t like the fact her little girl was caught committing a corrupt act. Mrs Pat Lindal didn’t like the fact that this corrupt act by her little Jennie was being made public. So Mrs. Pat Lindal sent harassing letters to all the small businesses who advertised in the newsletter. That was not enough to these corrupt cowards as threatening and harassing phone calls by male and female voices followed to the same business owners. Mrs. Pat Lindal is asking the people, all the people to trust her and elect her to serve them equally, pretty much the same as what her daughter did. Mrs. Pat Lindal committed an act of harassment, threat and bullying.
I contacted the Ministry for Municipal Affairs as they administer the Municipal Elections Act. I was instructed by representatives of the ministry to inform the local police as this is a criminal act and to take legal action to enforce the Municipal Elections Act. I have sent everything to the police under the attention of Chief Southall. No action to date. Mrs. Pat Lindal has been served written notice that legal action is being filed by the publisher of The Winners Circle newsletter, with two witnesses present and Lindal’s voice recorded as she accepted the written notice.
Mrs. Pat Lindal has shown not only her contempt of law but contempt of what it would mean to serve the community in elected public office. Her acts of harassment, threat and bullying are that of a despicable fraud. There were 20 letters sent and numerous phone calls. Her daughter’s corruption was something she wanted to hide.
I TELL YOU MRS. LINDAL YOU WON’T BE SUCCESSFUL! YOUR DAUGHTER COUNCILLOR JENNIE STEVENS IS CORRUPT AND COMMITTED A CORRUPT ACT TOGETHER WITH MAYOR MCMULLAN. IT WILL BE PUBLIC! THE BOTH OF YOU; MRS. PAT LINDAL AND YOUR DAUGHTER COUNCILLOR STEVENS TOGETHER WITH MAYOR MCMULLAN WILL FACE THE PUBLIC AND THE LAW!
YOU MARLENE BERGSMA A LIAR WILL FACE THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR LIES. YOU NOT ONLY KEPT THE FACTS FROM THE PUBLIC AT A TIME OF AN ELECTION YOU ATTEMPTED TO TAMPER WITH THE PROCESS OF AN ELECTION WITH YOUR INTENTIONAL LIE. YOU ARE A LIAR MARLENE BERGSMA OF THE STANDARD!
