Posted:        July 26, 2012

The attached document is material that is relevant to Hypocrisy in Hazzard County, the latest socially
poignant broadcast documentary being produced by our crew at 3B Solutions.

                               More information and documentation can be found at

By carefully screening hours of interviews and researching the empirical evidence behind a plethora of claims
of abuse of authority by the Barrie Police Services and the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County, we will expose
the details regarding how Patrick Brown, the Conservative “Harper Government” federal Member of Parliament
for Barrie Ontario appears to have abused his authority in order to protect his friends, the directors of Digital
Video Productions; the self-admitted partners in the SnowGoer project that is produced in conjunction with the
Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs that had recently been awarded very publicly with tens of thousands
of dollars’ worth of federal tax payer money due to the assistance of Patrick Brown.

                               More information and documentation can be found at
                                       WWW.HAZZARDCOUNTY.CA

The story started small, as the account of insignificant Small Claims Court litigation, but has now blown into a
tale of local power brokering by an elected official of the Canadian federal government who appears to have
violated his ethics and abused the authority of the Barrie Police Services and Crown Attorney of Simcoe County
in order to help his friends to evade civil liability for breach of contract, and to protect his own reputation.

                               More information and documentation can be found at
                                       WWW.HAZZARDCOUNTY.CA

Although we have no doubt that the directors of Digital Video Productions are claiming behind closed doors
that we are lying about what they did, neither of these recipients of federal and provincial tax payer funding has
as yet taken ANY legal or other action to silence what they know is the truth. Also, all of the subjects of interest
in this exposé documentary have been offered the opportunity to answer to our allegations on camera; however,
neither Mark Lang nor Martin Convery nor their Senior Producer Rob Shepard have shown the courage to step
up and support their claims or denounce our allegations, and none of the public and government officials who
we have openly claimed helped these men to abuse the authority of the criminal justice system have even shown
the professionalism to respond in ANY way to our very serious allegations.

                                Those who hide do so for a reason!

Mr. Lang and Mr. Convery:

I am writing to thank you quite genuinely for your efforts of the past thirty two months, during which time you and your
associates in the local power echelon abused the authority of the criminal justice system in a transparent and yet ultimately
unsuccessful attempt to pervert the true purpose and intent of the criminal justice system in order to evade civil liability,
and with the goal being to quell my guaranteed Charter Rights of “Freedom of Speech” and “Freedom of the Press.”

I say without hyperbole that never in my life has any person or group of people taken action that has so advanced my
career and financial good fortune, and although I understand that you have no idea what you have done or what you are
about to sacrifice that should warrant such gratitude, and I fully comprehend that benevolence was never your intent, it is
the end result that matters; by which I most definitely do not mean that this issue is in any way resolved.

It is said that a sagacious man can turn misfortune into profit, and although I do not profess to possess such wisdom, I did
sow and cultivate the seeds of a plan during the time that I was forced into silence by your false allegations, and now it is
harvesting time with the result being a windfall the likes of which I could not have ever hoped for. However, sadly, for
          every winner there is a loser, and as was said by the great monk Sakyong Mipham:
                       "Karma moves in two directions. If we act virtuously, the seed we plant will result in happiness.
                                                    If we act non-virtuously, suffering results".

My gratitude is twofold.

First I am overjoyed to be able to advise you that as a result of your actions, combined with the failure by the Barrie
Police Services and the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County to coerce my capitulation to their demands or to prove your
allegations, and finally because of the May 7, 2012 decision of Ontario Court Judge J.B. Wilson who stayed all remaining
charges under Section 11B of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, my team and I at 3B Solutions are now cleared to
complete production of a one-hour documentary that we have entitled “Hypocrisy in Hazzard County”.

If you don’t understand the reference, “Hazzard County” is what Simcoe County is known as to the attorneys of Toronto
and other areas. I have learned that the title stems from a common acceptance that this region is rank with abuse of
authority by local law enforcement and prosecutors; and there is a widespread perception that certain regional politicians
freely meddle with local affairs, including the civil and criminal justice systems, like real-life versions of Boss Hogg.

The conceptualization of this production is a direct result of your allegations, as is the fact that I now have the equipment,
and the studio and the budget required to produce my documentary. I started out researching other cases in which the
Barrie Police Services and the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County were accused of abusing their authority to assist the
politically connected of Barrie, and as I uncovered the tales, and I spoke with one victim after another, a true story started
to develop regarding how certain local politicians and power brokers run this town through back room meetings;
bypassing annoying components of our society like civil rights, democracy, and due process. Barrie is certainly not the
only city in Canada that suffers from this underground Star Chamber mentality, but it is reported to be amongst the worst.

Ironically, it was the often desperate attempts at intimidation, as undertaken on your behalf by the Barrie Police Services
and the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County, that resulted in not only the galvanization of my resolve to tell my story, but
also the name of the documentary that will expose the truth of the collusion in this matter. If the officers of the Barrie
Police Services had not re-arrested me based on unfounded and ultimately invalidated allegations of a breach of a
Recognisance that they had coerced me to sign “Under Duress”, I would never have learned the truth about “Hazzard
County”. My little six-day trip to Penetanguishene was also highly educational, as while most people would have been
intimidated, which after all was the intent - to force me to sign the “conditional discharge”, I chose instead to learn
everything I could about the underground politics of this town and how true power is wielded in Barrie.

That information led me to chat with others on the outside, like the politically active members of Barrie’s population,
which led to more details, and more stories, and more conversations, and more information, and more evidence; which
resulted in my being able to put together something real that I could pitch to a broadcaster. I then became affiliated with
and a supporter of one of the other federal political parties, who are not exactly in line with the right-wing rhetoric of
those who aided you, and through contacts within that group I spoke with local attorneys and even a former judge who
relayed horror stories about exactly how the Hoggs run this version of “Hazzard County”. The rest then all came into line.

The second reason for my appreciation is Mark’s testimony, as sworn in open court in the Ontario Court of Justice, that I
have been advised is sufficient cause to retain counsel and initiate civil proceedings against you both and Digital Video
Productions. In addition to the original claim for breach of contract, that I will prove I was coerced by the Barrie Police
Services and the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County not to pursue on threat of incarceration, I will be seeking damages for
defamatory libel, malicious prosecution, unjust incarceration, multiple violations of my Charter rights, lost income, legal
fees associated with my defence against your false and ultimately disproven charges, interference with my professional
and personal life, and various other claims for damages that have been burdened upon me as a result of the unfounded and
ultimately unsuccessful allegations as made against me by you both in order to evade civil liability.

The claim, valued at $500,000.00, will be filed in Toronto, as I have been told it will be an easy matter to prove that bias
is rampant in Hazzard County. Details of that lawsuit will be made available to the public, as is my right, through a
website located at www.digitalvideo.ws. I am sure you recognise that particular URL. It seemed such a waste not to use
all of the third party links to the original story that continue to float around in cyberspace. The Law Society of Upper
Canada and the Attorney General’s office both publish rulings of the criminal and civil courts through the Internet, as do
various law firms, and if they can all do it so can I, regardless of the threat of the Hazzard County Sherriff’s Department.

Under normal circumstances I would not be able to file civil action against you now regarding the breach of contract, as
more than two years has passed; however, I have learned that because Mark Lang admitted under oath in open court that
you were both motivated in your unsuccessful persecution by a desire to prevent me from filing civil action against you . .
. well, to put it simply, and without all the legal jargon, his testimony reset the clock. Ask your lawyer about “elements of
the same offence”, or if you want to avoid that expense there is plenty of case law at http://www.canlii.org

Mark Lang can of course deny saying it when questioned by my attorney during the discovery process, but I have been
advised that in a case where perjury could be an issue the trial transcript and recordings can be ordered to be provided to
the High Court Justice hearing the civil matter. Further, I have been told that such a confession of misuse of the authority
of our criminal justice system just about guarantees a ruling in my favour regarding everything else for which I will be
seeking damages in the Superior Court of Justice. It turns out that in Toronto the Justices of the Superior Court will not let
you get away with filing unsubstantiated criminal charges in order to evade civil litigation; even if you did have the entire
weight of the Hazzard County Sheriff’s Department and the man in the white suit backing you up.

I would normally also not be permitted to sue you regarding the defamatory libel that was published about me by you 32
months ago, except that your friend and transparently obvious agent Darren Roskam has been emailing my clients in your
name for several months now, spewing the same unsupported gibberish that you published against me when the true
evidence on my associate’s website proved to be damaging to you. Again, it is that “elements of the same offence” thing.

You can of course deny working with Barrie’s most infamous publisher of libel, who has since 2009 been deemed liable
for such offences in the Small Claims Court to the tune of about $10,000.00 regarding both Eric Jacobi Hawkins and an
associate of that local Federal Green Party candidate, but Mark Lang did confess in open court, while under oath, that
Martin Convery had called Roskam just prior to filing the charges against me, and that Darren Roskam’s unsupported
drivel influenced your joint decision to withdraw the contract without offering any compensation. Roskam was also your
only die hard supporter during the trial, and he did file a frivolous lawsuit against my lawyer to generate descent when it
became evident that you were going to fail in your attempt to frame me. Now that is the mark of a true friend and ally.

The Justice hearing the civil matter and the viewers and readers in the court of public opinion will want to know why it is
that despite having received numerous emails from Roskam in which he cited Digital Video Productions and its directors
by name, and in which he drew reference to Mark Lang like they were old friends, neither the president nor any other
representative of Digital Video Productions ever responded to tell Roskam not to email them or to stop using their
company name as justifications for his childish and irreverent attacks against me, even after virtually every other recipient
of Roskam’s rants expressed their disdain for his tactics publicly by carbon copying their response to all other recipients.

I could also add the Barrie Police Services and the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County to this action, and potentially
Patrick Brown; who I believe I can prove did abuse his authority in order to engage the services of the State to harass and
threaten me in his own best interests. What I do know is that I can prove that the true motivation behind the allegations
against me were quite different than what the State presented in court, and that there is no viable reason why the Barrie
Police Services and the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County would have pursued this matter unless outside influence was
driving them to do so. For the moment, however, I will concentrate my legal focus, and that of my cameras, solely on the
perpetrators of this unjust action; that being you and your business. I have two years to change my mind about the others.

Sorry “gentlemen” but the days of you and your friends abusing my rights are over. This disagreement between us is once
again headed for the court of public opinion and the civil courts; where you have to pay for your attorneys, and you are
not shown any special privilege based on who you know. It will be argued based on the evidence, in both the High Court
in Toronto and the court of public opinion, and not through the use of intimidation by the minions of local power brokers.

During the past 32 months the tables have turned, and you are no longer the Goliath to my David. I was alone and living
in virtual destitution without supporters when you made your unfounded allegations in order to avoid being sued in Small
Claims Court and exposed in the court of public opinion. Now, I have new political friends, and I have attained the
production equipment and the budget I need to tell my story properly. You reacted so dramatically and in such a panic
when the truth of this story was being told to the public through a single website. You cannot fathom what is coming.

I am quite sure that all members of your little cartel and the minions who serve them were convinced that I would relent to
the repeated demands that I sign a “conditional discharge” under threat of years in jail for a whole list of ridiculous
charges; and that you would succeed through it in silencing me forever while ensuring that none of you were ever held
accountable for your indiscretions. However, I did not yield and in the end all of your vexatious allegations were either
abandoned by the Crown Attorney or stayed by the court under Section 11B of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. In
order for you to succeed in filing your allegations you had to call in political favours, and to perpetuate the matter you lied
in both statements and while under oath, and you coerced assistance from the State through your close association with
local political leaders and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs - and regardless of all of that YOU FAILED!

Yesterday marked the 30th day after the May 07, 2012 ruling of Ontario Court Judge J.B. Wilson; meaning that your
political friends cannot entice the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County to further abuse their authority by appealing that
ruling in order to prolong the period of my coerced silence. I am also advised that as the matter has been stayed by the
court the Barrie Police Services are similarly stymied regarding their ability to legally pursue this matter further. I believe
it likely that the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County and the officers of the Barrie Police Services who came to your aid
now understand that their authority was abused by the directors of a corrupt corporation who felt that because they were
friends with various representatives of the local power base they had the unquestioned right to file frivolous and
ultimately disproved allegations of a criminal nature against a person who Mark Lang later admitted under oath you had
both cheated; with the intent of the criminal charges being to evade civil liability and to elude exposure.

Last year an incredibly brave 21 year old girl named Brigette Marcelle attained national notoriety because she had the
courage to stand in front of a camera in the Senate with a cardboard stop sign on which she had written “STOP Harper”. I
know because I recorded the rally in Ottawa where Brigette spoke to the thousands in attendance who then took her
message to the streets in cities across Canada to protest the current regime that is represented in Barrie by Patrick Brown.

I made hundreds of contacts at that rally as I handed out my political documentary “business” cards to every protester who
seemed connected, and I have stayed in contact with many of those activists. As a result, many have agreed to carry my
story on their websites, and to link to my upcoming videos on YouTube; as this story speaks of injustice in our society and
abuse of authority by one of Harper’s minions. You used your contacts to silence this story, while I will use mine to
ensure it is heard. It will be interesting to see if your friends in Hazzard County will have the courage to try to stop the
telling of this tale in other provinces, and if they will try to convince the local authorities to abuse the rights of the
publishers. Personally, in their own best interests I doubt they will even answer your phone calls now.

“Hypocrisy in Hazzard County” will also be made available for download and in streaming format on several websites
free of charge; each of which will be promoted accordingly on the search engines. We will also be posting trailers for the
production and other promotional segments on YouTube and a multitude of other free video access services. In the
interests of self-promotion we have registered the domain www.hazzardcounty.ca, through which we will be promoting
our documentary in the same way that Digital Video Productions promotes their various sports programs. We will be
including details of what the documentary is about, and an overview of the reasons it is being produced. There is nothing
there at the moment, but as anybody who knows me will tell you, I can become very focused on my pet projects.

All you have collectively accomplished is to take an insignificant Small Claims Court civil action that would have been of
little interest to anybody, and through lies, false allegations, abuses of authority, and breaches of ethics you and those who
supported you have turned that nothing issue into a huge story of national interest that I will be exposing through the use
of evidence as presented through the lens of my camera. The story of how a member of federal parliament appears to have
come to the aid of his friends by instrumenting an abuse of the criminal justice system in order to protect them from civil
liability, and to guard his own reputation, was an easy sell to broadcasters; especially to those who are not pro-Harper.

I hope you are satisfied with the results of your efforts gentlemen, as I certainly am.

Date:   Thursday, June 07, 2012

This letter is intended to advise you of our company’s latest documentary production, “Hypocrisy In Hazzard County”,
that will focus on abuse of authority by politicians of various levels and the high ranking civil servants who do their
bidding in Simcoe County. You are receiving this letter because you or the agency you represent are a subject of interest.

Background Synopsis: For those carbon copied to this letter

My name is John Ironside, and for a period between 2006 and 2009 I successfully defended against and ultimately
defeated a civil action that was launched against me in the Superior Court of Justice by Mustang Investigations, a former
employer. The purported intent of the action was for Mustang to recover files that they claimed to have suddenly realised I
had taken five months earlier, that they claimed could only be recovered through an Anton Pillar order.

In reality, just five days before they filed that ex-parte motion I had advised Ann Swinson, the president of Mustang
Investigations, that the Canada Revenue Agency had informed me that I had been defrauded by her company, and that I
would be forced to take appropriate action in the Federal Tax Court of Canada if the corporation did not make amends.
Such action would have resulted in the directors of Mustang Investigations being exposed for having similarly cheated
          hundreds of other employees over an eight year period, and also the Canada Revenue Agency; to the collective
                 tune of several hundred thousand dollars or more. The true purpose of the action was for the corporation’s
                       lawyers to “legally” seize and then destroy the evidence I had gathered pertaining to their fraud.

Fortunately I had a backup of the files that the lawyers absconded, and ultimately, after working their way through nine
lawyers from three Bay Street law firms, including a lawyer who was a violent convicted felon and ex-convict, Mustang
Investigations lost every significant battle in every court, including a decision by the Federal Tax Court of Canada. They
then crawled away from their own civil action against me with their tails firmly tucked between their legs, but only after
having spent $400,000.00 in legal fees and losing about $500,000.00 in business. My claim against Mustang, valued at
about $5,000.00, was ultimately settled in my favour by Employment Canada. Obviously, the question to ask is why
would any legitimate company invest or lose $900,000.00 to protect themselves from $5,000.00 in liability?

I am a former journalist and also the producer of several socially poignant documentaries. As such, I know the power of
the media and that of the court of public opinion. My then wife and I knew that we could not fight Mustang legally, as
they had the money, the lawyers, and the connections, so we took the story to the people by telling our tale and supporting
our allegations with evidence through the website of a third party magazine called “CROWE”; a then seven year old
online and in print publication that was owned and operated by Mr. Darren Adrian Roskam of Barrie.

Over the months and then years that Ann Swinson perpetuated her ongoing abuse of the authority of the Civil Court
System our story became better known and was followed by many, causing her company’s clients and potential clients to
go elsewhere in order to avoid the stain of association. In time the playing field leveled off as one attorney after another
either abandoned Ann Swinson for not taking their advice or she fired them. In the end, Mustang was forced to close
down. They lost their $750,000.00 house in the Beaches of Toronto, and were assimilated by a competitor.

Ann Swinson’s first choice of legal counsel was Mr. Norman Groot; who we learned was a violent convicted felon and
ex-convict who had been found guilty in a court of law for having smashed the head of a handcuffed and defenceless man
through a wood table with sufficient force as to lodge wood chips in the skull of his victim. This, I believe, demonstrates
that this action by Mustang Investigations was always one of intimidation rather than litigation. I do not know what was
said to him, or if he was silenced through intimidation or bribery, but suddenly one day the very supportive and
determined Darren Roskam turned on us and gave us two weeks to find somebody else to report on the story. By that time
I had heard some disturbing stories about Darren Roskam, including that he had been removed from the Barrie YMCA for
“acting inappropriately in a children’s area”, so we were quick to move the story to a social and political activist in Texas.

About that same time I received the money that was owed to my family through Employment Canada, and Darren
Roskam demanded half, citing his reporting on the story as justification for his demands. When I refused, and suggested a
smaller amount as an act of gratitude, Roskam turned on me personally and began writing all manner of propaganda; first
using his CROWE website to suddenly denounce me as a liar and con artist, without presenting ANY of the evidence he
claimed to have, and then by fabricating various malicious defamatory websites on free hosting servers through which
Roskam claimed that I was virtually every kind of pervert, again without providing ANY evidence, and a liar, a thief, a
con-artist, gay, and an abuser of women. Roskam repeatedly published pictures of my face suspended over piles of feces,
and he used Photoshop to paint my face like the devil, and a clown, and a gay man in makeup, etc. It was pathetic and sad,
and I did not think that any true professional would ever take such childish nonsense seriously. Essentially, I ignored him.

In August 2009 Digital Video Productions, a Barrie video production company, was advertising to hire both a
videographer and an editor. I applied for the positions, and then about a week later I emailed Mark Lang, the president of
Digital Video Productions, advising him that I had been offered another position with a production company in Toronto,
and I was wondering if he and his business were seriously considering me for the position. Mark Lang then rushed me
through the hiring process, and I was interviewed by both Mark Lang and Martin Convery. At that meeting I was
forthright and honest, and I advised both men of the litigation that had just ended in Toronto in my favour, and they
offered me the position on a contract basis to start later that month. The offer was made in writing via email, the rate of
pay was set, and the offer was accepted. A written contract was therefore in place under civil law.

Darren Roskam’s unfounded and unsupported propaganda about me continued unabated on the Internet, despite my
having called the Barrie Police Services to intervene, but as the material was clearly the work of an unstable individual
who was bent on my destruction, and as Mark Lang and Martin Convery claimed to be the professional editors of credible
publications and the producers of fact based television programming, it never occurred to me that they would show any

serious interest in the unsupported rants of this man who had admitted in writing to “riding” Welfare and to being a
disgrace to his own family. True journalists know how to check their sources.

About a week after they had entered into the contract of employment, Mark Lang suddenly set back the date. Shortly
thereafter he offered to change the offer of contract employment that was valid for one year to that of an employee
position. Then, when I did not take the bait that would have freed Digital Video Productions from their civil obligations
under the existing contract Mark Lang emailed me advising that the position was no longer available.

At that point, Mark Lang, the President of Digital Video Productions, had entered into a civil contract to hire me at an
agreed rate of pay for one year. He had tried to back-peddle out of the contract by offering a staff position instead, but I
had not accepted it. Under civil law, Digital Video Productions was accountable for payment of $30,000.00 to me whether
they chose to utilize my services or not, and I told them so. Although I could not prove it at that time, I felt it was obvious
that these men had reneged on their word and withdrawn the contract because of the online postings of Darren Roskam,
that I had complained about repeatedly to the Barrie Police Services but which they chose to ignore.

Digital Video Productions receives government funding of various kinds in support of SnowGoer; a series of publications
and video projects that are co-ventures between that company and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs. One such
recent contribution of public funds had been arranged by, or at least the credit was being publicly accepted by, Patrick
Brown, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Barrie; who had featured on his official website a picture of himself
presenting an oversized cheque to Mark Lang and Martin Convery in the name of SnowGoer.

I saw these events as being a sidebar to the story about Mustang Investigations, as evidently the sudden U-turn by Mark
Lang and Martin Convery had been caused by the propaganda being published by Darren Roskam, who the Barrie Police
Services had refused to take appropriate action against six months earlier even after I had received a clear death threat. As
such, I forwarded details to my associate in Texas who had published the Mustang story, who posted them on his blog.

The webpage said simply “Digital Video Productions Is Being Sued”. There were no details and no other information;
however, immediately thereafter I received an email from Gord Avaan, a leading “features” writer of the Snowmobiling
magazines published by Digital Video Productions, in which he threatened that if my associate and I told this story, as we
had with regards to Mustang, he would write to “thousands” of potential employers in the Simcoe area, telling them to
read Roskam’s websites and not to hire me. Then, just ten or so minutes later, he confessed to having done just that.

Mark Lang and Martin Convery, or another agent working on their behalf, then created an anonymous website on which
these government supported professional publishers and producers of fact based programming essentially copied and
pasted the content of Darren Roskam’s website, including my picture; through which they accused me, without presenting
any evidence, of all manner of perversion and crimes, including extortion, even though I had never asked for any money.
Our side responded by publishing the truth about the repugnant actions of the owners of Digital Video Productions, which
we supported through the use of government documents and other empirical evidence. Within weeks the Texas based
“About Digital Video Productions” website superseded the official “Digital Video Productions” website on Google.

According to the sworn testimony of Mark Lang, as made in open court, the officers of the Barrie Police Services
informed Mark Lang and Martin Convery on four separate occasions that their disagreement with me was a strictly civil
matter that the police could not become involved in. Then, again as stated by Mark Lang while under oath, he and Martin
Convery then approached Patrick Brown, the federal Member of Parliament and former City Counselor for Barrie, who
had recently taken a very public bow for assisting Digital Video Productions and SnowGoer to attain tens of thousands of
tax payers’ dollars. Suddenly, overnight, the Barrie Police Services jumped in with two detective constables, and search
warrants, and a plethora of charges that have not had a true place in our society since the days of William the Conqueror,
and which have been obliterated from the criminal code of virtually every true democracy on Earth.

Detective Constable Scott Aldridge testified that he and his partner, Detective Constable Tammy Watson, then
interviewed a variety of people about me, including my ex-wife and Darren Roskam; neither of who have any connection
to or knowledge of this matter. As can be confirmed by several police incident reports and court records as filed in the

Superior Court of Justice Family division my ex-wife is an angry chronic alcoholic who is affiliated with Darren Roskam,
who has provided him with pictures to alter and stories to tell about me through his various defamatory websites.

Also, by his own admission, Darren Roskam has been removed from the Barrie YMCA for what he called “Acting
inappropriately in a children’s area”, and he has twice attempted and failed to have a claim of his suffering from Paranoid
Schizophrenia stricken from court records. Roskam has also been ordered to pay costs for filing frivolous law suits against
my lawyer and several prominent members of our society, and he has been deemed liable to the tune of approximately
$20,000.00 for having published online defamatory libel about Eric Jacobi Hawkins, the leader of the Barrie division of
the Federal Green Party, and an associate of that legitimate politician. Finally, and the list could go on, Darren Roskam
has been deemed by the Superior Court of Justice to be a vexatious litigant.

At that time my father passed away, and the detectives of the Barrie Police Services attained a search warrant based on
easily disproved allegations, including a claim by them that I owned a website that was in truth registered to and owned
by a citizen of the United States who resides in Texas. They then executed that search warrant on my home on October 5,
2009, at a time when they knew I was out of town overseeing my father’s funeral, and in doing so the detectives ignored
the fact that the issuing Justice of the Peace had clearly noted that the warrant was valid only between the hours of 09:00
and 21:00 on October 6, 2009; that being the next day.

It is interesting to note also that the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County chose for no apparent reason not to use even a
single piece of any evidence that the police had claimed to have attained from the execution of that search warrant.
Instead, and in direct contradiction to accepted practices that require the prosecution to use the most direct evidence
available, the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County chose to fall back on third party emails, that could have been altered by
Mark Lang or Martin Convery before being forwarded to the police, and also to rely on the testimony of the Mark Lang,
who later confessed that the allegations of both “victims” were motivated by a desire to evade civil action.

I was arrested and charged with “offences” including “Defamatory Libel”, “Extortion by Defamatory Libel” and
“Criminal Harassment”, and I was forced to sign a “Recognisance” on threat of incarceration; on which I clearly noted
that my signature was being affixed “Under Duress”. I then wrote to the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County requesting to
be released from some of the terms of the “Recognisance”, as the coerced “agreement” inhibited me from earning a living.
Regardless, my repeated visits and requests for action were ignored by the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County.

Instead, the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County offered me a “Conditional Discharge” that served only to protect the
associates of Patrick Brown from civil action and exposure for their actions, while simultaneously prohibiting me from
ever telling this story. The alternative was the threat of many years in jail for having exercised my right to Freedom of
Speech and the Freedom of the Press as are guaranteed to all Canadians under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. When
I refused their offer, and it became evident that I was going to force the allegations to trial, Detective Constable Tammy
Watson of the Barrie Police Services arrested me again, claiming that I had breached the demands of the “Recognisance”
that she and her partner had coerced me to sign “Under Duress”.

Keeping in line with the decision by those detectives to base their investigation on the word of my ex-wife and the ever-
credible Darren Roskam, the allegations of a breach were made by a woman who had admitted to suffering a brain injury
not just once but twice, and who was the ward of her son as she lacked the cognitive functions to care for herself, and
whose daughter was evidently in trouble with the law. That woman had also admitted that the supposed emails she
provided to the police were in fact produced for them through her word processor.

Ultimately the police did not call on either my ex-wife or Darren Roskam to testify, and the woman who made the
allegations of the breach hid from police and refused to attend at the trial to testify as to the validity of her allegations. To
the best of my knowledge she was never charged with any criminal offence by the Barrie Police Services or the Crown
Attorney of Simcoe County for having made false allegations that she would not support, or for evading legal service of a
subpoena. Obviously, one focus of our attention in “Hypocrisy in Hazzard County” will be to understand why the State
took action on such archaic and seldom used charges based solely on the word of two men who later admitted they had
cheated me, and that of an angry drunk, and a libelist with apparent predator issues, and a brain damaged woman.

The officers of the Barrie Police Services timed their claims of a breach so that I would be held over a weekend in the
Penetanguishene Jail, with the prospect of missing Christmas with my children. They also knew that my attorney was on
vacation as she also worked part-time for the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County. The State then began demanding a
detention order that would detain me in jail for several months until this matter came to trial. I will remind you that I was
charged with offences that served ONLY to inhibit my right to Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press as are
guaranteed as Fundamental Freedoms under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

It was then explained to me in clear terms that all I had to do to stop this escalating abuse of the authority of our criminal
justice system, and to get my life back, was to sign the “Conditional Discharge”, which in truth served only to protect the
associates of Patrick Brown from civil action and exposure for their actions. I declined, stating that I would go to jail for
my principles. The Crown Attorney of Simcoe County then stopped demanding the detention order and negotiated bail.

I then retained an attorney from Toronto who could not be influenced by the corruption of Hazzard County, and shortly
thereafter the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County withdrew the archaic charges of “Defamatory Libel” and “Extortion by
Defamatory Libel”. However, they chose to proceed with two claims of Criminal Harassment, even though the only
“threat” was one of pending civil action.

At my trial Mark Lang testified in open court, during which he admitted:
1. That his company had entered into a contract with me that they then breached.
2. That the decision to breach the contract was based at least partially on the unsupported rants of Darren Roskam.
3. That when police refused to assist him and his partner, Martin Convery, they turned to Patrick Brown for help.
4. That the Barrie Police Services then made a massive U-turn on their policy of none intervention in civil matters.
5. That Mark Lang had openly advised investigating officers that his sons had planned to beat me with a baseball bat.
6. That the primary goal in laying the charges that violated my rights, as are guaranteed under the Charter of Rights and
   Freedoms, was to inhibit me from suing his company, while the prospect of a possible conviction was a “bonus”.

On April 12, 2012 Justice Wilson advised counsel that he was granting an 11B Application that had been made by my
attorney. He then formalized that decision on May 7, 2012, stating in his decision “I have concluded however that there is
unjustified delay in this matter that totals 426 days or 14.2 months. This far exceeds the Morin guidelines and is over 75%
above the lower end of eight months and over 40% above the higher end of ten months.”

One has to wonder why it is that the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County had so much trouble in proving their claims
against me, especially when the charge of “criminal harassment” is apparently a simple enough allegation to prove if the
accused has committed the crime. It is also relevant to ask why the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County agreed to schedule
five days for the entire trial of all of the original charges, including those that they eventually dropped, and then used all
of that time themselves questioning just one witness about hundreds of third party emails that they should have been able
to prove in minutes had in fact been sent by me, as they claimed, through the forensic analysis of the computers they had
seized from my home. Some might speculate that the true plan was to drag the matter out much longer than was originally
agreed, while fully aware that additional dates for the trial would not be available for several more months, with the end
result being that I would remain inhibited from telling this story or suing the directors of Digital Video Productions.

We will be focusing our attention and our cameras on the timeline of this case and others that have been similarly dragged
out by the Barrie Police Services and the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County for no apparent true reason. We will also be
asking why the State went to the trouble of attaining a search warrant and seizing my computers when they evidently had
no intent to use the evidence in pursuing this matter to a trial. Was the true goal to prosecute me for archaic crimes, or was
the true intent simply to silence me and to inhibit me from suing the associates of the local Member of Parliament?

Once the story is told and the evidence is presented in both our documentary and on the websites associated with it, those
of the court of public opinion and the media will have cause to justifiably question the true motivation behind the charges
that were laid against me by the directors of Digital Video Productions; and also the ethics of the Barrie Police Services,
the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County, and the federal Member of Parliament who is honour bound and obligated to serve
all citizens living within Barrie, Ontario, and not just those for whom he chooses to support with tax payer money.

About “Hypocrisy in Hazzard County”

While the Crown Attorney stalled the proceedings in the hopes of coercing my surrender, my colleagues and I were
anything but quiescent. We were busy researching similar past prosecutions of citizens who had stood up to the local
power structure, while making friends with influential people who do not support the current right wing power structure
within the City of Barrie. As a result, we now have the funds needed to complete the production, with principle
cinematography being undertaken this summer, and the program being edited in time for the autumn broadcast schedule.

Unlike the local establishment, whose members worked so very hard to silence me through transparent violations of my
rights of Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press, we will be seeking to hear both sides of this story, and as such we
will be asking to interview Mark Lang, Martin Convery, and Brenda Welsh, the current president of the Ontario
Federation of Snowmobile Clubs, and also Mayor Jeff Lehman of the City of Barrie, and Mr. Mark Neelin, the Chief Of
the Barrie Police Service, and Mr. Mike Minns, the Crown Attorney for Simcoe County, and Mr. Patrick Brown, the
elected Member of Parliament for Barrie who is responsible to serve all of the citizens within his constituency.

I am, however, a realist, and I anticipate that we will end up standing outside various respective offices microphone in
hand and camera rolling, reminiscent of Michael Moore in “Roger and Me”. That will not look good for the fine City of
Barrie, or those who I feel worked together to the advantage of the directors of Digital Video Productions, as it is
generally believed that only those who have something to hide do so. We will, however leave that choice to each
individual, and report on their decisions accordingly. When we are ready we will send out the appropriate requests.

This most recent abuse of authority, as undertaken by the directors of Digital Video Productions and their associates, will
be the corner stone of our documentary, but it in of itself is not enough of a story to warrant the production of such a fact
based program that will run for at least an hour. For that we have researched other similar cases, with the result being that
we have unearthed a disturbing number of “criminal” cases where citizens were victimized by localized judicial abuse; the
lion’s share of whom have been more than willing, and indeed eager to speak with us on camera.

Of course I do not propose that any one person is involved in all of the other incidents of abuse of authority, but those
stories support my claims of corruption within the local powers that be, and a brush that spreads wide stains all involved
by association. It might not seem fair, but neither was it just for Mark Lang and Martin Convery to file criminal charges
against me in order to evade civil liability for breach of contract; or for an elected official to reach out on their behalf in
order to initiate an abuse of the authority of our criminal justice system to help them and to protect his own reputation; or
for the Barrie Police Services and the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County to initiate and perpetuate for two and a half year
a persecution that they knew was rooted not in a true feeling of victimization but by a desire to evade civil liability.

Unlike those who tried and failed to persecute me for defending my rights, I can actually prove my allegations. Through a
variety of sources I am now able to establish that in Barrie high level influence has been used repeatedly to pursue
prosecutions that in most other cities would not have been pursued; with the overall true goal being to ensure that certain
citizens were subjugated in favour of other citizens who have political connections or who broker local favour. As this is,
in my opinion, what happened to me, I have a vested interest in focusing my lens on what I see as being corruption within
the City of Barrie, and rooting out the source of the vile stench that is slowly rotting this fine city from the inside out.

Through interviews and the presentation of hard evidence we will direct our viewers to the source of the influence in my
personal story, and we will analyse the political connections between our region’s Member of Parliament, Patrick Brown,
and the influential members of the federally and provincially funded Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs, who work
hand in hand with Mark Lang and Martin Convery to create the government supported SnowGoer project.

A documentary is not a court of law, and we do not have to prove allegations or substantiate the claims of others through
strict rules of evidence. In the court of public opinion our camera and our commentator take the true high road. They
follow the trail of breadcrumbs, and they take the viewer along for the ride, showing them all of the evidence and allowing
them to make their own rulings and judgments. That is after all how a democracy is supposed to work; and not through the
oppression of the rights of an individual in order to protect the privileged and protected few.

Our Focus: Hypocrisy

We will begin by focusing on the hypocrisy of my arrest and prosecution, with specific detail being provided about how
Mark Lang and Martin Convery, and their propagandist Darren Roskam, had all committed the exact same purported
offences for which I was arrested and trialed, including the publication of websites and emails through which these men
claimed without any corroborating evidence that I was every kind of pervert, and gay, and an abuser of women and
children; yet not one of them was ever charged with any offence, nor threatened by the Barrie Police Services with
incarceration, nor were their liberties or ability to earn a living ever hindered in any way by the authority of the State.

Further, we will present the facts with all due diligence regarding how Darren Roskam has posted online a multitude of
defamatory websites, very similar in nature to that which was published in support of Digital Video Productions, about
not only me but also others, and how he then transparently attempted to extort money in exchange for retracting his lies;
yet regardless of the mountain of evidence that was presented to them, the Barrie Police Services have repeatedly refused
to take any action against this man, despite the economic, personal, and emotional harm he has caused to so many people.

Mark Lang and Martin Convery will no doubt vehemently deny any familiarity or association with Darren Roskam, and
frankly who can blame them? However, recent events should clearly cement the close relationship between these
publishers and producers of fact based television programs who receive tax payer money from both the federal and
provincial government, and this court identified vexatious litigant who has admitted in writing to “riding” Welfare and to
being a “disgrace” to his family. We will also discuss how Mark Lang and Martin Convery provide promotional services
to various corporations, and how they produce various family oriented programs, yet they associate with and have
admitted to taking advice from a man who was removed from the Barrie YMCA out of concerns for the safety of children.

The following facts will come to light as we expose how Mark Lang and Martin Convery worked with Darren Roskam:
1. The propaganda website that was published in support of Digital Video Productions in 2009 was virtually a copy and
    paste mirror site of Darren Roskam’s libelous website about me that was published in an attempt to extort money.
2. Mark Lang admitted under oath that Martin Convery had contacted Darren Roskam in 2009 to learn more about me as
    I was suggesting civil litigation to resolve our contract dispute after both men broke their word.
3. Mark Lang admitted under oath that he recognised Darren Roskam, even though he had claimed they had never met.
4. Darren Roskam was diligent in his determination to attend court and to sit behind the Crown Attorney’s desk in open
    support of the prosecution; and other than the wives of the complainants he was the only person in attendance.
5. When the purported validity of the charges and the prosecution began to unravel, as Mark Lang started confessing to
    all manner of wrong doing during a very well-coordinated and fully researched cross examination, Darren Roskam
    suddenly filed a Small Claims civil action against my lawyer in a transparent attempt to create a conflict of interest.
6. Darren Roskam has very recently engaged in yet another campaign of propaganda against me, through which he has
    contacted my clients through email accusing me of all manner of perversions and abuses, again without providing any
    evidence, while demanding money and simultaneously bragging about how he and his new best mate Mark Lang were
    absolutely goddamn guaranteed to get me convicted for “extortion”, even though I was not charged with that offence.
7. Several of those who received Darren Roskam’s hate mail wrote to him, and copied all of the other recipients, telling
    him to cease and desist writing them, and one of my clients, a doctor, went so far as to threaten to involve the police.
8. Neither Mark Lang, nor Martin Convery, nor any other representative of Digital Video Productions, who were all
    being publicly carbon copied to Darren Roskam’s defamatory emails, took any such action. They also failed to
    instruct Darren Roskam not to use their names, or the details of their prosecution of me, nor to in any way infer
    association with them; all of which he was doing openly. My clients all assured me that they also did not ever receive
    such a retort from any of the “honourable” directors of Digital Video Productions.
9. Yesterday morning Darren Roskam emailed some of my clients, and the previous lawyers for Mustang Investigations,
    and people I do not even know, and several email addresses at Digital Video Productions in which he ranted about
    how I had not proven my innocence and how I was most likely guilty of the offences, and he attached several pages of
    court documents pertaining to Mark Lang and Martin Convery’s charges against me.
10. Patrick Brown was also carbon copied to that email, but our MP also failed to tell Darren Roskam to cease and desist.
11. On May 24, 2012 Darren Roskam was ordered by the Small Claims court to pay $750.00 in costs to my lawyer for
    filing a frivolous civil claim. Roskam retorted by declaring his loyalty to Mark Lang and Digital Video Productions

Our Focus: The Law

We will then turn our attention to the purported validity of the charges that were laid against me; most of which were
ultimately abandoned by the Crown Attorney’s office. Those charges were so unusual and so seldom prosecuted that in
his ruling of May 7, 2012, Justice Wilson went out of his way to note “the first three counts are not common ones”.

We will show that Defamatory Libel as a criminal offence is an archaic throwback to the times when English noblemen
ruled over peasants with an iron fist and a whip, and that the law was created solely to permit the overlords to take swift
action against any member of the proletariat who had the nerve and audacity to speak ill of their masters. We will then
discuss how even the House of Lords in Great Britain, which is known for its extreme conservative views, has abolished
the statute from the law books of that country, as they have come to understand that such a restriction on one’s liberties
has no place in the modern world; a belief that has been reflected by virtually all civilized nations, as sadly Canada, the
author nation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is amongst the last of the Western nations to abolish it.

Further in that light, we will discuss how even though that archaic law of subjugation remains within the Criminal Code,
the charge is used so rarely as to make it almost impossible to find recent case law. We will then establish that the charge
of alleged “defamatory libel” has been used not only rarely, but also exclusively for the protection of the State and its
officials; such as when it was implemented to silence and subjugate the families and friends of prisoners in a Kingston jail
who created and publicly posted “wanted” signs accusing a select group of guards of brutality and murder. Of course the
question we will be asking is why the State would extend the enforcement of this seldom used and closely coveted law in
order to protect Mark Lang and Martin Convery when neither man has any “official” link to the State.

Our Focus: Political Favours

Mark Lang admitted in open court while under oath that he and his partner Martin Convery had approached the Barrie
Police Services with their allegations against me on four separate occasions, and that they had been sent away each time
after being advised by various officers that their issue with me was a strictly civil matter. Then, pursuant to that testimony,
immediately after they contacted Patrick Brown, with whom both Mark Lang and Martin Convery were featured in a
photograph on that politician’s official website receiving a cheque from the federal government that Patrick Brown was
taking credit for facilitating, the matter suddenly became an issue of great concern to the Barrie Police Services; worthy of
a search warrant, and the services of not just one but two detective constables, and the seizure of my computer, and the
need for a “Recognizance” that the Barrie Police coerced me to sign “under duress” in order to ensure my silence.

Mark Lang also testified that when he walked into the headquarters of the Barrie Police Services, after having reached out
to his associate Patrick Brown, he suddenly had the contact name of Detective Constable Scott Aldridge. Although Mark
Lang did not volunteer how he had known to ask for that particular officer, or who had referred him, upon being called to
action Detective Constable Aldridge immediately initiated an investigation that resulted in my arrest, even though his
apparent enthusiasm in pursing the allegations was in direct contradiction to the policies of the Barrie Police Services as
had been explained to Mark Lang and Martin Convery by several other officers on four separate occasions.

We will be questioning, as will many others, if current Federal Conservative Member of Parliament and former Barrie
City Councilman Patrick Brown might have had something to do with that sudden change of heart by the Barrie Police
Services. After all, police departments work on policy, and the rules of the Barrie Police Services regarding this kind of
strictly civil matter had been made clear to my accusers on four occasions; so why, and under whose authority did
Detective Constable Aldridge change the rules?

We will also be asking that if the charges were legitimate, and not simply a ploy by the Barrie Police Services and the
Crown Attorney of Simcoe County to coerce me to sign a “conditional discharge” that would forever protect the friends of
Patrick Brown, why did they deliberately delay in their prosecution of the supposed offence? Both can deny the
allegation, but doing so would fly in the face of the observations of Justice J.B. Wilson, who stated: “I have concluded
however that there is unjustified delay in this matter that totals 426 days or 14.2 months. This far exceeds the Morin
guidelines and is over 75% above the lower end of eight months and over 40% above the higher end of ten months.”

                                                                                                                    Page 9 of 14

Until proven otherwise, we stand by our belief that the Barrie Police Services and the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County
never expected a fight, especially after they had dropped the conditions of their proposed “conditional discharge” from the
demand that I spend a month in jail to “don’t tell and we will leave you alone”. It is also clear from interviews and
meetings that we have had with other victims of this kind of judicial abuse that most people yield to these tactics of
subjugation in order to get their lives back, so I can only guess that it might have seemed safe for our “Honourable”
Member of Parliament to call in a favour to protect his own image, and the best interests of those who he had helped to
attain federal funding, by stepping on one of the constituents he had sworn to serve.

I think Mr. Brown’s back bench might start heating up soon during Question Period, as it was he who told hundreds of
teenagers at the Fisher Auditorium when asked about Bruce Carson that “anyone who misuses a position of authority
should be held fully accountable”. Of course our “Honourable” Member of Parliament then proceeded to outright lie to
those very same children by claiming that the “Harper Government’s” new proposed drug bill did not demand jail time for
first time marijuana possession. Fortunately Colin Wilson, the Liberal party candidate, was quick on the uptake and he
presented the facts while shaming Patrick Brown for lying to his constituents’ children. As I recorded the debate I can use
that clip and others within my documentary, with the obvious question being that if the “Honourable” Patrick Brown will
lie to our innocent children, who can’t even vote, then what will he do for those he has helped to secure funding from the
federal government?

As Mr. Brown is a public official who is paid by this great nation’s citizenry, he can be assured that he will be seeing my
camera crew and I, microphone in hand, at many of the public events that he likes to hold for his own self-ingratiation,
and that as members of the media we will be asking the hard questions of our very “favourite” Member of Parliament.

Our Focus: Motivation

We will then turn our attention to the below listed facts, and we will question the true motivation behind my arrest and
prosecution by focusing on the laissez faire attitude and lack of due diligence that was repeatedly demonstrated by the
detectives of the Barrie Police Services during their investigation of this supposedly serious collection of crimes.
1. The detectives attained a search warrant based on easily disproved allegations, including a claim that I owned a
    website that was in truth registered to and owned by a citizen of the United States who resides in Texas.
2. Then they executed that search warrant on my home on October 5, 2009, at a time when they knew I was out of town
    overseeing my father’s funeral, and in doing so the detectives ignored the fact that the issuing Justice of the Peace had
    clearly noted that the warrant was valid only between the hours of 09:00 and 21:00 on October 6, 2009.
3. Then, after the Barrie Police Services abused the purported authority of that search warrant in order to attain the
    perceived right to violate the sanctity of my home, the Crown Attorney chose for no apparent reason not to use even a
    single piece of any evidence that the police had claimed to have attained from the execution of that search warrant.
4. Instead, and in direct contradiction to acceptable rules of conduct that require the prosecution to use the most direct
    evidence available, the Crown Attorney chose to fall back on third party emails, that could have been altered by Mark
    Lang or Martin Convery before being forwarded to the police, and also to rely on the testimony of Mark Lang, who
    later confessed that the allegations of both “victims” were motivated by a desire to evade civil action.

Our viewers will want to know why the police would go to the trouble of attaining a search warrant and then not use any
of the evidence in the prosecution of the case; with one possible conclusion being that what they found did not support
and perhaps even disproved their various allegations. We will also try to answer why the detectives jumped the gun on the
authority of that warrant in order to enter my home at a time that was not sanctioned by the court.

Further, given the potential level of disgust that would have been generated by the propaganda that Mark Lang and Martin
Convery had published about me, either directly or through their court labeled libelist Darren Roskam, we will question if
the true intent of the detectives of the Barrie Police Services was to prove a crime or to seize my computer and the
evidence I had collected in order to protect local Member of Parliament and former City Councilman Patrick Brown from
the embarrassment of having to explain why he had publicly endorsed Digital Video Productions and arranged for federal
funds for the SnowGoer program that is a co-venture between that privately owned video production company and the
publicly supported Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs.

Our Focus: Incompetence or Collusion?

Mark Lang confessed while under oath that his primary interest and that of his partner, Martin Convery, when laying
charges and pursuing prosecution for supposed crimes was to evade civil action for having breached a contract. As such,
from our perspective as the tellers of this tale, either Mark Lang and Martin Convery willfully deceived the Barrie Police
Services and the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County regarding their true motives; or, to the alternative, the Barrie Police
Services and the Crown Attorney for Simcoe County did knowingly go along with the deception, knowing full well that
both Mark Lang and Martin Convery were willfully abusing the State’s power in order to evade their contractual
obligations and civil liabilities, and not because they felt in truth that they were the victims of any crime.

If the former is true then under the law both Mark Lang and Martin Convery should be charged criminally with Public
Mischief or some other appropriate charge pertaining to conspiracy or deception, etc.; and if truth lies in the latter then an
investigation by the Attorney General and the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services is warranted,
followed by disciplinary action or dismissal for any public servant who took part in this blatant act of obstruction of
justice. As part of our research we will be requesting such investigations in a very public way, and we will be including
any publicly accessible results within both the documentary and its accompanying websites.

A Long History of Socially Poignant Political Documentaries

Ms. Welsh does not know me, and to her I apologise in advance for the exposure that she will now have to fend off from
the public eye as a result of the self-serving actions of her colleagues at Digital Video Productions. However, as I was the
videographer for Colin Wilson, the most recent federal Liberal candidate in Barrie, and as it was my footage that exposed
our Member of Parliament for lying to children at Fisher Auditorium, I am confident Mr. Brown knows who I am.

My background is all about producing often controversial socially poignant political documentaries; so frankly this story
is right up my alley. In the early 1980s I served this country in uniform, and then during the late 1980s and early 1990s I
worked as a documentary and news videographer for Greenpeace and other politically active peace and ecology groups
who took direct action against nuclear armed and ecologically volatile vessels on the open seas around Europe. After that
I documented atrocities in the Balkans during that region’s period of unrest and then did likewise in the Middle East. I
then took on the multiple roll of Sub-Editor and Photojournalist for an Athens based newspaper that was the regional feed
for Reuters and the Washington Times before being promoted to Deputy Editor. On my return to Canada I spearheaded a
documentary about the Stony Point Native land claim at Canadian Forces Camp Ipperwash that was picked up by a
network broadcaster despite the fact that it had been produced using VHS camcorders. I remain a social and political
activist who believes in principles and justice. My weapon is the truth, and my story is told through the lens of a camera.

As part of my past professional duties I have stood my ground against the members of truly dangerous organizations, like
the P.L.O. and Milosevic’s Serbian Guard, and during my earlier excursions with organizations like Greenpeace I refused
to yield to the threats and intimidation of the British police, and then that country’s Naval Special Forces, and even MI5.
At Ipperwash I stood steadfast against the Canadian Military in which I had served, challenging their threat of arrest if my
production team and I continued to tell the truth about how our government had stolen that land from its rightful owners. I
therefore have no reason to fear wrongful and abusive prosecution by the likes of the Hazzard County Sheriff’s
Department. Canada is a democracy, and we have guaranteed rights. Nobody tells me what I can say or what I can film.

I am also certainly no opponent to the true principles and purpose of the police or the office of the Crown Attorney and
my history is one of repeated assistance to law enforcement. In addition to having no criminal record of any kind, I have
been licensed repeatedly throughout the past twenty years by the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services
to work in corporate security and as a private investigator. Also, in 2001 I was in downtown Barrie when Barrie Police
Officers Brian Biblio and Jason Dorian were jumped by six assailants, and out of a crowd of approximately 50 gawkers I
was the only citizen who stepped in to restrain several of the assailants until police backup arrived. I also voluntarily
testified in defence against allegations that were made against those officers, and I was advised by the Crown that my
testimony was key to their acquittal. These are hardly the actions of the criminal extortionist who the Barrie Police
Services and the Crown Attorney attempted to paint me as being. I guess sometimes the truth is just too inconvenient.

                                                                                                                    Page 11 of 14

I believe in the true purpose and intent of the police, as do most citizens, and I do not at this time blame the Barrie Police
Services for having been dragged into this supposed series of serious criminal offences that the detectives of that
department could not prove; in spite of having been granted search warrants, and conditions against my liberty, and
having forced me to sign a recognizance under duress, and even after having had almost three years to prove their
allegations. Quite frankly, if the Barrie Police Services applied the authority of their department in order to assist the
friends of local politician Patrick Brown to evade civil action, then they as a unit and as individuals are liable for their
actions, and I choose as a tax paying and government supporting individual not to believe that until such time that I have
good reason to do so. If and when I do they will know.

Level Playing Field

Two and a half years ago Mark Lang and Martin Convery were on a distinctly different level than me, as they were better
connected and they ran an established business. Now, three years later, I am running my own rather successful production
company, in direct competition to Digital Video Productions, providing services to various doctors and other highly
respected professionals; and oh yes, those videos featuring people like Bob Rae are not downloads from party sources.

My credibility is now without question, as it truly always was, and with all of those trusted doctors and politicians touting
my praises Mark Lang and Martin Convery are not likely to be able to convince anybody that I was ever the perverted
extortionist who they manufactured through their Darren Roskam motivated campaign of propaganda that the Barrie
Police Services and Crown Attorney of Simcoe County chose to simply ignore while pursing me for the same “offence”.

Mark Lang and Martin Convery brought this upon themselves, and sadly through their actions they are likely going to hurt
many of their political allies and professional colleagues as they try to wiggle their way out of their responsibilities once
again like they did in 2009. Mark Lang did after all confess while under oath in open court that in September 2009 his two
sons, then 18 and 23, wanted to assault me viciously with a baseball bat because I was holding their father accountable for
the written contract he had entered into of his own free will and then reneged upon.

Even more concerning, in that same testimony, as made under oath, Mark Lang then went on to say that his “only”
concern was that if his two young sons had assaulted me, then 43 years old, with such a potentially lethal weapon they
“might” face criminal charges for doing it. This was also no slip of the tongue, as my attorney provided Mark Lang with
several opportunities to reword what he meant, but instead this supposedly honest and upright citizen, who has been
provided with tax payer money to advance his business as a result of assistance from Patrick Brown, said it again and
again “only” “only” “only”.

We therefore have to question why it is that Mark Lang felt so invincible that he would feel comfortable in even
suggesting that his desire to keep his money, and not abide by the contracts he enters into, outweighed not only my right
to freedom from undue persecution by the State, but also my right to feel safe in my home, in my person, on the street, or
anywhere else where his sons “might” be held accountable for killing me, or for at the very least assaulting me savagely
with a baseball bat. Is this mentality a result of being within the Hazzard County inner circle? Is it a by-product of rubbing
shoulders with the upper echelon of the local power circle who can call on the Hazzard County Sherriff for favours?

I have a copy of the official transcripts of the Examination in Chief of Mark Lang, as conducted under oath by the
prosecution in open court in the Ontario Court of Justice. I am now ordering an official copy of the cross examination, as
conducted by my attorney, which was much more revealing. Quite honestly, we need very little else to make our case to
the court of public opinion, as Mark Lang inadvertently admitted to a variety of legal and character failings, and he
frankly substantiated every claim that was made by me and published by the journalist in Texas.

Everything Mark Lang said in that open court is part of the public record, and accessible to all. This is still a democracy,
and as the Crown Attorney lacked the ability to prove the bulk of their allegations and as the court stayed the remaining
charges because the Crown was stalling proceedings I no longer have any restrictions against me and I am free to tell my
story as I see fit. I think I have also established with the local constabulary that nobody is going to shut me up through
goose stepping or bullying.

                                                                                                                 Page 12 of 14

In fact, I doubt that those who befriended and aided Mark Lang and Martin Convery during their two and a half year
abuse of the authority of our judicial system will do anything to assist them now. Given my contacts, and who I am
sending this letter to for support and exposure, including countless left leaning journalist, attacking me now through a
further abuse of that authority would not only be foolhardy, it would be professional suicide. I think Mark and Marty had
better get used to the sound of phones slamming down in their ears when they call their former co-conspirators.

I am also confident that as the truth is released and backed consistently with hard evidence it will be difficult for Mark
Lang and Martin Convery to explain to Barrie’s many truly respectable business operators why these two supposedly
“honourable” and “ethical” businessmen would resort to publishing unfounded propaganda that was based solely on the
word of a court ruled defamatory libelist who was removed from the YMCA for the protection of children. It might also
be difficult for them to justify having laid multiple criminal charges against an innocent man who they had cheated,
especially after Mark Lang so clearly explained his true motivation while under oath. Credibility is earned through
honour, not deception, and Mark Lang and Martin Convery will have to give a bit of thought now to damage control, as I
am sure their clients, advertisers, sponsors, and the stations that broadcast their shows will all be calling them.

It might also concern more than a few that Mark Lang appears oblivious to the unethical and unconscionable act that his
sons were suggesting to commit; and all because his word and that of his partner is worthless and they didn’t want to pay
for their lack of ethics. I feel truly sorry for the employees of Digital Video Productions and anybody who does business
with them, as many of them will have contracts of one kind or another bearing the signatures of Mark Lang or Martin
Convery, and when the truth about these men becomes public they will likely become quite nervous about entering into
anything new knowing that Mark Lang’s sons are waiting in the wings, bat in hand, ready to “renegotiate” daddy’s deals.

In order to secure interviews for our documentary and to obtain certain information we have assembled an evidence
packed DVD that we call the “press and interested parties package” that we will be sending out to anybody who we feel
might be able to provide us with valuable information. That list includes the media, local businesses, all members of the
Barrie Chamber of Commerce (of which 3B Solutions is a member), the clients of Digital Video Productions, the
television stations that broadcast their programs, etc.

This distribution of truthful information is neither illegal nor unethical, even in Hazzard County, as Gord Avaan, a
“journalist” for Digital Video Productions, did the same thing in 2009 when he admitted in writing to sending hundreds of
unsolicited emails about me to potential employers in Simcoe County, and despite the fact that his emails contained
nothing but a regurgitation of the unsupported propaganda of Darren Roskam, the police refused to take any action.

Advertisers and supporters of the SnowGoer project might also want to know why these “professional” publishers and
producers of “fact” based programming were communicating so freely and taking advice so blindly from Ann Swinson,
the president of Mustang Investigations; a woman who I proved in the Federal Tax Court of Canada had cheated me, and
by extension all of her employees, and also the Canada Revenue Agency; and who I proved through the use of evidence
had made unsupported allegations in the Superior Court in order to be granted the “legal” authority to attempt to seize
from me the evidence of her own fraud; and who lacked the courage to testify under oath in support of her own allegations
despite multiple demands by the court to do so; and who hired as her first choice of “legal counsel” a violent convicted
felon and ex-convict who was found guilty in a court of law of slamming the head of a handcuffed and helpless man
through a table with sufficient force as to lodge wood chips into his victim’s head; and who worked with Darren Roskam
to publish the original defamatory libel that initiated this matter. Honestly, does anybody truly doubt that we have enough
of a story to fill an hour long documentary? I have enough to pitch a series about corruption within the legal system!!

Finally, we will be focusing our attention on the true link between Darren Roskam and Patrick Brown, who are clearly
well known to each other as can be confirmed through various photographs that we now have in our possession showing
the two together in social situations and with Paolo Fabrizio; an apparent mutual friend from the Libertarian Party.
According to various political sources, Darren Roskam is accused of working with and perhaps for Patrick Brown as a
political muckraker, which would, if true, explain why despite having viciously attacked dozens of people through
frivolous lawsuits and online propaganda campaigns Darren Roskam has never been arrested, yet I was charged and put
through a 32 month prosecution for speaking out against the public associates of our “honourable” Member of Parliament.

A Lesson For Us All

In addition to the hard facts, the revealing stories, and an expose about corruption in a small town, “Hypocrisy in Hazzard
County” will offer a moral message to the viewer about greed, arrogance, self-destruction, and a word or two about
Karma; as I personally doubt that anybody truly cared two and a half years ago about how a small town business was
being sued, especially when the lawsuit was so meager as to fall under the jurisdiction of the Small Claims Court.
However, exposing corruption and abuse of authority is currently all the rage, and when that story includes details about
how a Federal Member of Parliament appears to have inappropriately influenced a local police department within his
constituency to take action against a tax paying citizen in order to help the business partners of a government funded
public organization avoid civil liability for breaching a contract . . . well, that is juicy stuff isn’t it?

Then, throw in details about how the perpetrators have clearly aligned themselves with a self-admitting “rider” of Welfare
who has been deemed accountable to the tune of $20,000.00 by a court of law for published defamatory libel (but only
after committing the offence numerous times) and then let everyone know how Mark Lang and Martin Convery’s
associate was removed from a YMCA for “acting inappropriately in a children’s area” . . . and well, you have a story that
might just generate a lot of public interest, especially with the right online promotion and support from political allies.

It is the actions of Mark Lang and Martin Convery and all of their allies at the Barrie Police Services and the Crown
Attorney of Simcoe County, and the recruitment of Darren Roskam (who I did try to warn them about) that have caused
this matter to become much more interesting to the general public than the original story. Also, due entirely to their self-
maligning detriment, which resulted in a counter effect to my benefit, I now also have a much larger stage from which to
tell my story; with more characters, subplots, and intrigue. Frankly, Mark Lang and Martin Convery have provided me
with one hell of a story to tell, and I sincerely thank them, as do my political allies who have always supported me and
who have been wanting to knock Patrick Brown off of his ivory tower for quite some time.

The plan by Mark Lang and Martin Convery was to silence me through intimidation and threats, but during the past 32
months my desire to reveal the truth about Hazzard County has grown, and I have become increasingly galvanized in my
desire to tell my story to as many people as I could; which, in a roundabout way, resulted in me attaining the equipment
and funding I needed to produce this documentary. For that I thank everybody involved in this abuse of our legal system.

On-Line Promotion

It is our position until proven otherwise that Mark Lang and Martin Convery resorted to unsupported propaganda and then
coercion and intimidation through Patrick Brown’s contacts at the Barrie Police Services and the Crown Attorney of
Simcoe County in order to silence the truth as was being told on one website. It then became the mission of the Barrie
Police Services and the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County to inhibit my ability to tell my story on the Internet; the most
powerful method of communications ever known that is in the hands of the people, and not those who want to control us.

Now, despite having had all of the advantages, the State lost in their quest to quell my rights and coerce my silence, and as
a result they can no longer take action to inhibit my ability to tell my story. It will therefore be interesting to see what the
“honourable” and “ethical” directors of Digital Video Productions do now when the truth and the evidence to support it is
presented on twenty or thirty politically oriented websites that are owned and operated by as many people, who are the
citizens of a free country, and who network to ensure their safety and the sanctity of their rights.

Media

It is also interesting timing that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation just had its budget slashed by that very same
“Harper” government; meaning they are likely looking for stories of this nature. It is also fortuitous for me that during the
time that the Crown Attorney stalled the advancement of their prosecution the local TV station was purchased by a real
news broadcaster, which is likely less vulnerable to local pressure; as has always been the problem with the media in
Hazzard County. I am sure that a few of my political contacts will know exactly who to call when the timing is right.

Civil Action

It is obvious now that the minions of control in Hazzard County were ill informed of my level of resolve, and their
overconfidence was your undoing; as it was for Ann Swinson. I am sure that Mark Lang and Martin Convery remember
her. She is the nice lady who lost everything – her business, her reputation, her house, her savings, and everything she
owned – and all because she put her pride before prudency and she convinced herself that with enough lawyers and an
ever increasing number of lies and threats she could silence anybody. It is funny that you took advice from her, as my
dearly departed father used to like the quote “Who is more the fool: the fool or the fool who follows him?” Do you
remember that her war against me cost her in the area of $900,000.00 in lost business and legal fees, and still she lost
everything? Wow, some people are thick.

Well, as Mark Lang admitted in court, Ann Swinson called to congratulate him and Martin for having me arrested. They
might now want to give her another call (if they can find her as I hear she is in some serious trouble with creditors the
Canada Revenue Agency) and be sure to thank her for her sagacious counsel. If they do, I hope that they let her know that
she too is about to become famous . . . again . . . right there in the public spotlight beside her buddies Mark Lang and
Martin Convery, and their mutual friend Darren Roskam . . . who of course none of them know ;-)

Well, it’s too late to say I am going to keep this short, but I have been silenced unjustly for far too long. I now have much
to say, and you can believe I am going to say it. Where the tactics of my accusers and the State were to silence the truth,
mine are to let everything be known through the use of evidence.

In that light, if any of those who took part in this abuse of authority and attempt to silence the truth through oppression
have the courage to discuss this matter on camera, please do not hesitate to call. My crew and I will be very respectful and
cordial should you choose to support your actions, but be assured that we will be very thorough in our questioning.

We’re all hoping you have a happy day up here in sunny Hazzard County, and don’t forget to visit us at
www.digitalvideo.ws and www.hazzardcounty.ca, both of which are currently under construction.
