Good point, will work it in.
Incomplete draft, still working on it.
In my statement of allegations in support of a criminal charge under the Criminal Code of Canada, I WILL SAY.
My name is H. Keith Henson
I came to Canada and applied for refugee status here because I was harassed and threatened with death by a cult in the US.
In the US I was subjected to years of continual harassment, including over a thousand hang up phone calls (made from pay phones), being followed by private investigators or cult members over a hundred times, having private investigators stake out my house and locate and harass my friends, neighbours and relatives. My parent's house in another state was picketed, and my daughter was threatened with kidnapping (I have a transcript and the police in California have the tape.)
My home has been picketed, my cars have been vandalized, I have been attacked several times and once was physically forced into fast moving traffic by two thugs in the employee of this cult.
This information can be verified through news stories, Internet web sites and a running log of the harassment in the Internet news group alt.religion.scientology.
Since arriving in Canada four years ago I have been stalked a number of times, especially while in the company of Gregg Hagglund, an Oakville resident who (with his family) has been subjected to criminal harassment to an extent equal or greater than mine. Mr. Hagglund's harassment may be verified through the Toronto police.
To the best of my knowledge the physical harassment, scam phone calls, and stalking of both Mr. Hagglund and me were suspended about two and a half years ago. (There may have been low level surveillance, but not at an obvious level.)
So it was a considerable shock to have open harassment, what this cult calls "noisy investigation," resume.
Friday morning, April 28, 2005 I was driving to work. Just after making the turn from Wayne Gretzky to Elgin I noticed a co-worker walking to work. I stopped to pick up him up in a wide driveway used by Stelarc. (Just across from the Brantford Police Station.) This was within a few minutes of 9 am.
A Grand Caravan, license# ATCR 068 (Ontario, photo #7) pulled in behind my vehicle, closer than would be expected. My co-worker is aware of the vehicles of company people who stop to pick him up. He looked back and realized it was not someone he knew. He then asked me why the driver was blatantly video taping us?
His words came as a dismaying shock. I was both scared and angry that the harassment was resuming. I jumped out and confronted the person. He was alone, driving with his left hand and holding a video camera with his right. I stood in front of his minivan. Still holding the camera the driver backed up into the driveway. I followed not letting the vehicle get more than two feet away so that if he tried to run me over he would not have much speed.
When his vehicle was at right angles to Elgin he went forward hitting me. The vehicle did not have enough speed to knock me down but it did causing me to bend at the waist over the vehicle's hood, a fact that could be verified from his video tape which I believe was still running (if it has not been destroyed). As my co-worker saw the vehicle hit me he went to the side of the vehicle and thumped on the window, yelling for the driver to stop.
After failing to push me out of the way with his vehicle, the driver reversed and backed his vehicle into Stelarc's property in a half circle with me staying within two feet in front of his vehicle. He stopped when he was almost at right angles to Elgin again, but pointed away from Elgin. He could not have gone much further without backing into one of the bins Stelarc uses for metal scrap.
At the point he stopped I called 911 and was connected to the police station across the street. Unfortunately there were no police available so the dispatcher called in some cars.
After calling 911, I called my wife (Arel) and gave her a description of the person in the vehicle. She made notes (Exhibit A). He continued to tape during most of this time alternating with calling on a sliver coloured cell phone.
When the police arrived (in two cars, Billone, Oliver, and third whose name I did not get but is pictured on Photo #8) I told them that the person I had at bay who had been video taping me was probably a PI. They did not believe me and laughed when I said I had been harassed by PIs and cult members a number of times before.
I also told the officers that he had hit me with his vehicle in trying to leave and that I had a witness to the event.
A minute or two after the police drove up, my wife came over from home with a camera. She photographed the entire scene. Photos 1-3 are of me talking with the officers, 4-6 are her attempts to photograph the driver through the windows of his vehicle. Photo 7 is the license place of the vehicle. Photos 9-11 are of one of the officers talking to the driver. The driver's face is clearly shown. Photo 12 shows where my vehicle was parked.
One of the officers talked to the driver and to the officer's surprise (but not mine) determined that he was a PI. The police identified the driver, but would not identify him to me. That is why this information is sworn out against the unknown person in the vehicle depicted in Photos 9-11 attached.
The police did provide me with the name and phone number of the company the driver (PI agent) told the police he was an agent for. It is:
Solutions Security & Investigations 119-2550 Argentia Rd. MISSISSAUGA, Ontario L5N 5R1 (905) 819-9058
Executive Director: David L Brewer
When the police gave me this number, I immediately called Mr. Brewer up from my cell phone and inquired if he did have an agent in Brantford that morning. He was at first not cooperative so I handed my cell phone to the police who talked to him. Apparently Mr. Brewer verified that the driver of this van was his agent.
After talking to this PI agent, and his boss one of the officers informed me that they would not arrest the PI for criminal harassment nor even write up a report. The officer said he had as much right to take pictures of me in public places as my wife did to take photos of him. The officer also said that the PI agent running his vehicle into me was justified because I was blocking his path and that I could be charged--for something like impeding a vehicle.
The officer told me that I could lay a private charge with the Justice of the Peace if I was dissatisfied with their handling of the situation. The officers were not hostile, just very unhelpful, and would not even tell me if I was the target of this private investigator.
Photo 17 shows the private investigator leaving the area.
Half an hour or so later, after continuing on to work, I called the video taping PI's agency and talked again to Mr. Brewer. I did not make notes of this conversation, but Mr. Brewer would not admit or deny that I was the target of his agent's aggressive blatant behavior citing client confidentiality. He implied his agent's behavior might have been because my car was similar to someone else they were investigating.
He did say he knew who he was working for and denied that he was working for a "religion." If he was working for Scientology this is a true statement. They have been denied religious charity status by Revenue Canada and are a criminally convicted corporation in Canada
Ruling of the Supreme Court in Canada in Hill v. Church of Scientology, File no. 24216, (Paragraph) 194
"In summary, every aspect of this case demonstrates the very real and persistent malice of Scientology."
Mr. Brewer also threatened to sue me if I posted any liable about his firm. I told him I would email him [DL_Brewer (at) hotmail.com] a draft of what I was going to post about my encounter with his agent and did. (Attached email, Exhibit B) Was this a blatant attempt to harass me and scare a co-worker or a case of wrongly identified vehicles or mistaken identity? There are reasons I think it was part of a long-standing pattern of criminal harassment.
First, the minivan was rented from Enterprise Rent a Car. (See attached Ontario "Used Vehicle Information Package." Canada's privacy laws it is impossible for a citizen to get information about the person who rented this minivan.
If I had not involved the police, I could not have found who was behind this harassment even getting the license number.
Second, that very day Gregg Hagglund reported his trash had been taken. Several years ago this was done on an almost weekly schedule, a few times Mr. Hagglund even saw cult members or PIs taking his trash. This time he found his trash was gone but not any others on his side of the street.
Third, other people on scientology's hate list (Exhibit C) have reported an upsurge in PI activity.

This morning my email included a note from [email protected]
"Please be advised we have received complaints regarding unsolicited e-mail (SPAM), originating from your computer's provisioned IP address. The sending of unsolicited e-mail is contrary to the terms & conditions outlined in the Rogers End User Agreement (EUA)."
And attached to the email was the post at the top of this thread.
It took some sorting out with Rogers that their software does not distinguish between complaints about spam email and news group postings. Then I got to explaining in gory detail to the Roger's agent that postings about PIs stalking people with video cameras is on topic for alt.religion.scientology.
The source of the complaint was not available to her, the originating IP address was stripped. But she did indicate that they would have no problem getting it for the police.
You have to wonder who made the complaint?

Mr. Brewer runs a one man security/investigation shop out of one of those "executive suites." As a guess the guy taping me in Brantford was a by-the-day contractor.
Someone went looking for Mr. Brewer yesterday. The guy who runs the place said he was gone.
If Mr. Brewer is reading this group, he should call the office manager for a message.

Not in Canada. They don't have religious status here. They are a criminally convicted corporation.

Edwin Richardson choked me from behind and tried to smother me. He and his buddy we had the wrong name for forced me into the traffic out at gold base. The buddy drove a car right at me at a velocity that if I had not jumped, I would have been killed.
PIs don't act this way. I can't really use that word.

You should know better. Even in Canada you can't fight them in the courts. They have turned the courts into weapons.
