DEALING WITH COURT REGISTRIES
employeescasecanada.ca 2018 COURT REGISTRIES N.B. Premiers were kept fully apprised of events in their respective provinces as they unfolded.
1) Normally, I do not include Court Registry matters on my web site, but, due to the unusual action of Kazim Mohammed Deputy District Registrar of the Vancouver Law Courts in an e-mail to my enquiry as to further elucidation on completing forms for my civil fraud case S 188996, I include it here as a superb example of Registry conduct:
Good morning Mr. Callow,
As per your fax request, please find attached a copy of Rule 22-2, which governs affidavits. This rule, among others pertaining to the Supreme Court Rules of British Columbia, may also be found on our website at www.courts.gov.bc.ca. Furthermore, please note that pursuant to Rule 22-2(9), any documentary exhibit which does not exceed 10 pages - such as the Notice of Civil Claim filed in this matter, which is only 9 pages-must be attached to the affidavit and to all copies of that affidavit that are served.
With regard to your query as to how to produce copies of the affidavit plus any exhibits, generally these copies are made after this document is affirmed or sworn by a notary. The originally signed document by both yourself and the notary is then provided to the court, and copies produced from the original served upon the other parties.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact us at 604-660-2845
...Making affidavit...(4) An affidavit is made when...(c) the person before whom the affidavit is sworn or affirmed completes and signs a statement (highlighted) in accordance with subrule (5) and identifies each exhibit, if any, to the affidavit in accordance with subrule (8).
...Exhibit to be marked' (8) The person whom an affidavit is sworn or affirmed must identify each exhibit referred to in the affidavit by signing a certificate placed on the exhibit in the following form: 'detailed form'
Copies of documentary exhibits (9)..., in the case of a documentary exhibit not exceeding 10 pages, a true reproduction must be attached to the affidavit and to all copies of the affidavit that are served....
2) Normally, I am not asked for a notarized document. Indeed, only once before was I so asked with the B.C. Court now requesting two notarizations due to the structure of my initial document. Normally, the usual signed affidavit form suffices in other courts.
3) A litigant cannot navigate the above maze without the co-operation of Registry clerks. Having been in 8 out of 10 provinces, here are some of my observations:
a) Registries are high pressure work areas. Considering that lawyers are happy to be sent away charging the client for yet another visit (many years ago in probating a will, I was stung with a second fee for rather glib explanations) hence the pressure is coming primarily from the Office of the Chief Justice pressuring Registries to do their 'personal' biddings. In business, it's called 'kicking your secretary beneath the table'.
b) The Registry in Gatineau, QC can hardly think straight they are so stressed. Just try and find contact numbers in the court registries. With the election of a new government on Oct. 01, I will be back insisting that they examine my claims of 'running a court within a court' with subsequent cover-up.(unsuccessfully appealed to Supreme Court of Canada 26883-2016. Incumbent SCofC Chief Justice R. Wagner and second SCofC QC appointee, Suzanne Coté also sat on SK 26993-2016 to my vehement objection.
c) AB Registry was reasonable but I await the next election for possible renewal of claims.
d) PEI is a farce with a Premier who doubles as the Justice Minister in what I label a 'potato-patch mentality' where the Registry appears non-functional. Even Senator Duffy would not investigate this province in this matter. Why should he when he is back in Ottawa with his own multi-million dollar law-suit?
e) SK has major problems with its judiciary and Premier Moe would do well to rethink challenging the Feds on the Carbon Tax on his own. The SK legal society has gone mute on judicial malfeasance. Recently, on a constitution challenge (similar to N.S.), a Registry clerk, rather than asking for assistance from her colleagues, just returned everything implying that I'm bonkers. This is the worst type of civil servant.
f) MB was to be the source of an action requesting an apology (no money entailed) in this province led by a latter-day hippy. I dropped that approach considering that there is no-one in a position of authority I would accept to give an apology on behalf of the Canadian Judiciary.
g) ON where I have filed a second fraud case naming two judges and a legal firm from 2014 in Ottawa. At that time the Registry was co-operative. For example, rather than forcing another trip, the clerk pointed out that 'plaintiff' may not list a 'respondent'; rather, the proper terminology to complete the parallel was 'defendant'. He made a pencil correction. Recently, I had occasion to go to this Ottawa Registry of the 'red queen' whom was ill-suited to the job symbolized by a lawyer trolling outside the wicket. The upstairs client clinic is a farce. A.G. Carolyn Mulroney has `dropped the ball` on this case to which I have called for her dismissal.
h) NS Highly irregular court treatment on the constitutional question regarding imposed legislation led me to request the U.S. to use the Magnitsky Act (cannot be applied internally in `sly` Canada) against Justice P. Rosinski. Their Barristers Association refused to analyze the Employer's factum for (substantiated) fraud originating in ON which permeated events in QC and SK.
i) Federal Court Registry helpful but stay away from their (underpaid) judges.
4) In conclusion, it is not easy dealing with the bureaucracy anywhere and there is a story to be told from both sides. Vancouver Court's Kazim Mohammed shows what can be done and I, for one, appreciate him making my life a little easier. Over-all solution? Nothing will be accomplished as long as the Office of Chief Justice plus the various oversight bodies are not over-hauled. In that endeavor, the legal fraternity is ill-suited to the task although it is recognized that some judges are doing their best under - at times - intolerable conditions.
