In 1992 I underwent a profound revelatory experience of God which revealed that the total solar eclipse "Eye of God" is a "Sign in the Heavens" that symbolizes God's divine omniscience. You may read about what Rev. Ray Drennan of the Unitarian Church of Montreal contemptuously dismissed as my "psychotic experience" here: http://revelationisnotsealed.homestead.com - This revelatory religious experience inspired me to propose an inter-religious celebration of Creation that would take place whenever a total solar eclipse took place over our planet. You may read about what Rev. Ray Drennan and other leading members of the Unitarian Church of Montreal falsely and maliciously labeled as a "cult" here: http://creationday.homestead.com - I am now an excommunicated Unitarian whose "alternative spiritual practice" includes publicly exposing and denouncing Unitarian*Universalist injustices, abuses, and hypocrisy. The Emerson Avenger blog will serve that purpose for me and hopefully others will share their concerns here. Dee Miller's term DIM Thinking is used frequently and appropriately on this blog.

Self-Described "Tough Cookie" Sue Montgomery Fears For Her Life At The Hands Of The Murderous Emerson Avenger

But don't take my word for it U*Us. . .

Take the word of Valérie Plante's "less than ethical" Deputy Mayor, and Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up enabler, Montreal Unitarian U*U Sue Montgomery, as written by her own hand in this highly questionable police report that Sue wrote on April 30th, 2018, but which I only became aware of today (Thursday September 6, 2018) during a meeting with my lawyer. Indeed my lawyer saw it for the first time himself this morning.

I will provide a full transcript of this police report later (now done, scroll down below photos), with highlighted text and embedded links in it so that Unitarian Universalists, the general public, and journalists can engage in a free and responsible search for its truth and meaning, or dearth thereof. . .

I will repeat the questions that I asked in Tuesday's blog post about Sue Montgomery's first dU*Ubious criminal harassment complaint to the SPVM.

Is this the same Sue Montgomery who told Montreal voters that she is a "tough cookie" who "isn't afraid of anyone" during the Montreal municipal election campaign?

Is this the same Sue Montgomery who told Montreal voters, "Je suis forte. Je ne suis intimidée par personne", during the Montreal municipal election campaign?

As far as I am concerned Valérie Plante's "less than honest" Deputy Mayor Sue Montgomery is either outright lying to SPVM police officers when she claims to fear for her life, and is thus committing the criminal act of public mischief by making a false report to the police, or she is suffering from paranoid delusions, and could thus benefit from some psychiatric treatment in light of my well established history of non-violence.

Can you explain the events comcerning Edgar, Robin following his arrest and his release? (translated from French)

March 12th, 2018 1900h Robin Edgar came to borough council meeting at NDG Community Center on Monkland St. I felt nervous and afraid and kept my eye on him for any moves he might make. He was sitting in a in a seat up a few rows on the left hand side of the room. As he wasn't allowed to speak to me he asked councillor Peter McQueen about a post Mr. McQueen put on Facebook saying he would harass city employees. "What was that about?" Edgar asked. Mr. McQueen replied that it was probably about snow removal. Edgar then asked Mr. McQueen if he thought it was OK for a resident to harass an elected official. Mr. McQueen said not if he was following them or showing up at their home. (all of this is available on the recording of the borough council meeting from March 12, 2018) The whole time Edgar was speaking I felt uncomfortable, afraid, nervous about what he would do.

March 18, 2018 10:30 am I went to the Unitarian Church of Montreal on de Maisonneuve and Robin Edgar was outside on the sidewalk protesting, as usual, and his signs were propped against poles and trees. I called 911 while pushing the signs onto the street with my feet. Mr. Edgar filmed me the whole time. When 2 officers arrived I explained R.E. was charged with criminal harassment of me. The police said he had a right to be at the church because his conditions had been revised. I cried, saying I couldn't take it any more, that this had gone on for 15 years and I wanted it to stop. I fear for my life and didn't know what to do any more. The woman officer said R.E. wasn't violent nor did he have prior charges. I said that psychological abuse is violence and that Richard Bain, Marc Lepine, and Valerie Fabrikant (sic) didn't have prior charges either. - but there were signs that they were mentally unstable.

March 26 2018 7pm - Robin Edgar appeared at city council (there is a video available on the city's website) and asked Valérie Plante about my "ethical" behaviour. The Mayor said that he had conditions not to communicate with me either directly or indirectly and therefore in solidarity with me, she would not answer. R.E. then asked Lionel Perez, leader of the opposition a question about me and he said R.E. should stop using city council for his personal complaints. I left the room when R.E. entered the city hall chambers because I'm afraid to be in his presence. I began to shake and am afraid of what he might do.

March 27, 2018 9:30 am Robin Edgar appeared at city hall again for question period and I left the room again - once again afraid of what he might do. He asked councillor Alexander Norris a question about police and how they supervise protests. I stayed out of the room the whole time Edgar was in the chambers.

April 23, 2018 19:00h Robin Edgar came to city council and asked Valérie Plante about my "unethical behaviour" in preventing him from protesting in front of the church, moving his signs. Again I felt afraid, as I always do. Especially when I leave council late at night (around 10:30 pm) and walk to the metro. Will he be waiting outside for me?

April 24, 2018 9:30 am. Robin Edgar came to city council again for question period and referred to the borough council meeting April 11 at which resident Valerie Bell made a statement saying she was afraid a man who came to borough council (Emerson Avenger's note: The name Robin Edgar is crossed out on the hand written police report) and felt something needed to be done to stop his behaviour because it was frightening me too and therefore preventing me from focusing on my job. This kind of harassment, she said, also discouraged other women from going into politics. Robin Edgar told city council that Valerie Bell referred to him as Richard Bain and Valerie Fabrikant (even though Ms. Bell did not refer to him by name). Edgar asked Projet Montreal if there was a mechanism to report unethical behaviour in an elected official. The mayor did not respond. He then asked the leader of the opposition Lionel Perez how he could report unethical behaviour and Perez said to call 311. Perez told him his questions are not in the public interest.

A screenshot "photograph" of Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up enabler, and Valérie Plante"s "less than ethical" Deputy Mayor, Montreal Unitarian U*U Sue Montgomery throwing one of my picket signs onto Bulmer street on Sunday March 18th, 2018. A picket sign that is the second part of a pair of signs that protest against the Unitarian Universalist Association's abusive misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in #BatShitCrazy UUA #LegalBullying that was quite evidently intended to conceal "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" (to say nothing of UUA Religious Educators aka Unitarian Universalist "church" Sunday school teachers etc.) from the general public by intimidating Yours Truly into deleting aka "memory holing" The Emerson Avenger blog posts that tell the readily verifiable Truth about "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "less than perfect" Unitarian Universalist minister Rev. Mack Wallace Mitchell, and "pedophile rapist" U*U lay person Richard Buell. This screenshot documents Montreal Unitarian U*U clergy abuse cover-up enabler Sue Montgomery's quite literal "hands on" participation in Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts, as does her repeated and ongoing attempts to shut down my peaceful public protest against Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse, and the institutional cover-up and denial of Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse, outside the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal.

For the record, as SPVM police officers have told Sue Montgomery on at least two occasions now, I am not violent and I have not ever threatened Sue Montgomery with any violence. I not only have "no prior charges" for any kind of violent crime, but I have a well-established two decades plus track record of *peaceful* public protest aka NON-violent direct action outside the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal during which I have been non-violent, even when I have been physically assaulted by Montreal Unitarians (to say nothing of other belligerent Unitarian Universalists) on several different occasions. I have no intention whatsoever of causing Sue Montgomery, or any other Montreal Unitarian clergy abuse enabler, any kind of physical harm; however I do intend to keep telling the readily verifiable Truth about Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse of all kinds, both sexual abuse and non-sexual abuse (including psychological abuse. . .), and the past and ongoing institutional cover-up and denial of clergy abuse by Unitarian Universalist "moral leaders" etc., as well as former Montreal Gazette "Justice Reporter" Sue Montgomery's past and ongoing complicity in, and even her well-documented personal "hands on" participation in. . . Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts.

The Montreal Gazette Is A "Newspaper" Where No News Is Bad News. .

But don't take *my* word for it U*Us. . .

Oh what the hell, take my word for it. . . as posted to The Montreal Gazette's heavily biased and highly misleading #FAKENEWS report about my arrest for alleged criminal harassment of The Gazette's former "Justice Reporter, Valérie Plante's UNethical and UNqualified power abusing Deputy Mayor, and Montreal Unitarian clergy abuse cover-up enabler Sue Montgomery, in this comment about the fact that The Gazette deleted aka "memory holed" ALL previous comments that had been posted in response to The Gazette crime reporter Paul Cherry's "less than honest" and "less than competent" #FAKENEWS report.

"Why did The Gazette delete aka "memory hole" all of the comments that were posted in response to this article?

When The Gazette isn't concealing the truth about Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up from the Canadian public, to say nothing of Montreal Unitarian clergy abuse cover-up enabler Sue Montgomery's knowing and willful complicity in Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts. . . The Gazette is shamefully misrepresenting the truth in heavily biased #FakeNews reports like this one.

Once again The Gazette is a "newspaper" where no news is bad news. . ."


As it happens, I discovered yesterday that the comments that The Gazette "memory holed" in its main page are still available to be read on The Gazette's Facebook page that links to this biased and misleading #FAKENEWS article.

Read 'em and weep for The Gazette's FAILure, and indeed its ongoing obstinate refusal, to engage in fair and balanced reporting of this newsworthy story, to say nothing of other newsworthy stories about Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts that I have reported to Sue Montgomery and other The Gazette "journalists" in the past. . .


Bonus screenshot: Which documents the fact that I posted two additional comments today which provide the complete transcript of the police report Sue Montgomery made on December 5th, 2017, which led to my arrest for alleged criminal harassment at Montreal city hall on December 11th, 2017.

Sue Montgomery's DU*Ubious Criminal Harassment Complaint Against Yours Truly: The Verbatim Transcript. . .

This is a verbatim transcript of the complaint to the SPVM aka Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal that Montreal Unitarian clergy abuse cover-up enabler, and Valérie Plante's "less than ethical" Deputy Mayor, Sue Montgomery filed against Yours Truly on December 5th, 2017. I have added emphasis to some of the words in it and I have "annotated" the transcript with links to pertinent internet postings:

This is a complaint of harassment against Robin Edgar (RE), who has been bothering me for the past 15 years approximately. I have tried to file a complaint about him before but police told me that because he wasn't threatening me, there was nothing I could do. About 25 years ago, Robin Edgar was kicked out of the Unitarian Church of Montreal at the corner of de Maisonneuve and Claremont. At the time he had an "epiphany" about the solar eclipse and wanted everyone in the church to believe the same thing as him. He became aggressive and the congregation voted to have him removed. Since about 1998 he has been protesting in front of the church with signs, writing with chalk on the sidewalk and pĥotographing people going into church. Soon after I joined the church and RE wanted me to report on his situation because I was a reporter at The Gazette. I looked into and concluded it wasn't a news story. Every time I went to church RE would accost me wanting me to write about him. I became the justice reporter at The Gazette and RE upped his game, showing up at news conferences where I was working and recording me without my knowledge. This can be found on his YouTube channel. The most recent video was posted Dec. 5, 2017 at about 1:39pm and shot at the corner of Marlowe and de Maisonneuve. I saw RE this morning at this corner on my way to Vendome metro. He told me to "make penance" and that he would be at the next municipal council meeting and I should answer his question. I ignored him but decided to finally file another police complaint with police because I have had enough of this man.

In 2014, I created the hashtag #BeenRapedNeverReported and RE changed his message about me. He made posters alleging I was complicit in covering up childhood sexual abuse at the Unitarian Church. His Twitter feed is full of these allegations about me (@RobinEdgar) I have blocked him. On Dec 6, 2014 I held a fundraiser at La Tulippe (sic) in the Plateau for the Montreal Sexual Assault Centre and RE protested outside. I called police and asked them to send someone. They sent a commander from Station 38 (?) He tried to mediate something with RE and me but concluded there was nothing he could do. Prior to this The Gazette's lawyer also sent a cease and desist letter to him. This just made him even more obsessed with me.

In about 2007 or 2008, the Unitarian Church managed to get an 810 (Emerson Avenger's note: i.e. a restraining order) against RE for one year. He respected it but returned immediately. I participated in the process of getting the 810.

This year I ran with Projet Montreal as mayor of CDN NDG. RE showed up at our debate at the NDG Community Centre. He had his signs outside and made a video Inside, he sat in the front row and filmed me. I asked him to stop. He refused. Finally organizers intervened to stop him after women in the audience said they felt unsafe.

Once during the campaign, I had an early morning radio debate from Café Caravan in Cote des Neiges. I showed up by taxi at 6 a.m. and RE was waiting outside the café with his signs. He said "The tougher the cookie the harder the crumble." I didn't respond.

During our first municipal council meeting Nov. 27, 2017 RE asked a question of me: On a scale of 1 to 12 what is your level of integrity?" Mme Valerie Plante, the mayor of Montreal, answered him. She told him that he was harassing me and had to stop. She told him to go to the police if he had a problem with me.

I am afraid now because RE said at the election debate that he had recently moved into NDG. Today was the first time I saw him on my street. As a public figure I will be present at many public events and fear he will continue to harass me and show up to ask questions & film me. RE is about 50 years old, 5'6" slight build, whitish short beard, balding.

His blog is emersonavenger.blogspot.com and contains many articles about me. The Unitarian Church congregation is prepared to give testimony as well. The minister is Rev. Diane Rollert.

RE also protested in front of The Gazette after we sent him a cease and desist letter.

He also protested in front of the NDP Office on Sherbrooke St. W. in 2015 when I was running to be a candidate in Westmount NDG.

(I believe) While I was a reporter for The Gazette at the Montreal courthouse, RE showed up at many trials including Luka Magnotta's murder trial, posing as a journalist. He filmed me and asked me the same questions - when was I going to write about him or when was I going to sue him.

As he wrote on his blog, RE "underwent a profound revelatory experience of God which revealed that the total solar eclipse 'Eye of God' is a 'Sign in The Heavens' that symbolized God's divine omniscience." This happened in 1992. I believe RE had a break with reality. I'm afraid that this could escalate with time and today when I saw RE on my street I was afraid, I stood at the corner of de Maisonneuve and Marlowe waiting to cross the street as he stood behind me he said he wished he had his camera and that I should apologize and make penance. He said he'd see me at the next council meeting- and that I should answer his question. I was very shaken up by this - he sounded more aggressive than usual. He was laughing, sort of a mean laugh, mocking me.

Sue Montgomery


Is this the same Sue Montgomery who told Montreal voters that she is a "tough cookie" who "isn't afraid of anyone" during the Montreal municipal election campaign?

Is this the same Sue Montgomery who told Montreal voters, "Je suis forte. Je ne suis intimidée par personne", during the Montreal municipal election campaign?

Sue "Tough Cookie" Montgomery is "afraid" and "very shaken up" by the fact that Yours Truly said Sue should apologize for UNethically arranging to have The Gazette's media lawyer Mark Bantey falsely accuse me of making "libellous statements" about her in an effort to silence my public criticism of, and my peaceful public protest against, Sue's past and indeed ongoing. . . complicity in Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts?

Sue "Je ne suis intimidée par personne" Montgomery is "afraid" and "very shaken up" by the fact that Yours Truly said that I would see her at the December Montreal city council meeting - and that she should answer my question(s) instead of hiding behind the skirts of François Limoges and Valérie Plante?

Take the word of Montréal mayoress Valérie Plante's power-abusing and Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up enabling Deputy Mayor, Montreal Unitarian U*U Sue Montgomery, in this official video of the Public Questions Period of last night's Montreal city council meeting.

I would strongly suggest viewing the video starting at 25 minutes and 5 seconds in:

Unitarian Universalist Association Membership Statistics For 2017 & 2018 Are Open To Question. . .

It seems that the Unitarian Universalist Association has finally got around to adding official membership statistics for 2017 & 2018 to its UUA Statistics, 1961-2016 page, but couldn't be bothered to change 1961-2016 to 1961-2018. . .

Just one more sign of UUA incompetence, if not sheer laziness.

It looks like the UUA may be misrepresenting how many congregations remain within what used to be called the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, until the UUA realized that it was quite steadily losing congregations and decided to drop the word "congregations" from its name. . .

The UUA officially claims to have 1035 congregations today, but the UUA's official list of '2018 Certified Congregations by Region / District' says:

Total certified congregations, including those with no financial contribution: 981


The UUA habitually adds Non-Certified Congregations to its official membership statistics to boost the numbers, even though many if not most Non-Certified Congregations are arguably no longer member congregations of the
Unitarian Universalist Association.
The UUA's official list of '2018 Non-Certified Congregations by Region / District' says:

Total Congregations: 53




If one adds the 53 Non-Certified Congregations to the 981 Certified Congregations one arrives at a grand total of 1034 UUA congregations, not 135. A minor quibble, and it is possible that the UUA gained 1 new congregation after the 2018 "census" of congregations. The fact remains however that the UUA has only 981 *certified* congregations, and that the 53 non-certified congregations may well have broken away from the UUA years ago, if they even continue to exist at all. . .

I call bullshit on the
Unitarian Universalist Association's claim to have 135 UUA congregations in 2018. It probably has less than 1000 congregations, as per its list of certified UUA congregations, and I will add that many of the certified congregations are tiny, and barely viable as U*U "churches", The First UU Church of Milford (Milford, MA) is listed as a Certified UUA congregation even though it has 0 adult members, 0 RE enrollments, and 0 attendance on any given Sunday.

Fathers Day And Unitarian Universalist Cover-Up And Denial Of Child Sex Abuse Committed By Abusive U*U Fathers - What's The Connection?

How about this little Tweet of mine?

Or perhaps this one?

How about this U*UTube video shot during today's protest against #ChildSexAbuse committed by Unitarian Universalist fathers, and cover-up and official denial of sexual abuse of children by top-level UUA leaders, and other Unitarian Universalists, who are fathers?

Ardeth Patterson Norman And Cover-Up And Denial Of Unitarian Universalist Clergy Abuse - What's The Connection?

How about these screenshots from the Montreal Then And Now Facebook group which capture how, apparently as a direct result of a comment by one Ardeth Patterson Norman complaining about my post about my celebration of the 20th anniversary of my peaceful public protest against Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse, and various other U*U injustices abuses and hypocrisy, outside the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal, my post was deleted aka "memory holed" within minutes of my posting it. It is people like Ardeth Patterson Norman, and the administrator of the Montreal - Then and Now Facebook group, who wittingly or UNwittingly aid and abet Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts. . .

For the record, the deleted post in question was a sharing of this Facebook post to my personal and public Facebook account.

Mothers Day And Unitarian Universalist Child Abuse - What's The Connection?

How about this little Tweet of mine?



Or this playlist of U*UTube videos that document my Mothers Day 2018 protest against the fact that many if not most Unitarian Universalist mothers are complicit in, and even knowing and willful participants in, Unitarian Universalist cover-up of child abuse committed by abusive UUA clergy and UUA Religious Educators aka Unitarian Universalist Sunday School teachers etc.?

This U*UTube video from that playlist captures a Montreal Unitarian woman, who may or may not be a U*U mother, proving my point about Unitarian Universalist mothers being complicit in, and even knowing and willful participants in, Unitarian Universalist cover-up of child abuse by erasing my chalk slogans that said:

Asking Montreal Deputy Mayoress Sue Montgomery Tough Questions About Her Complicity In Unitarian Universalist Clergy Abuse Cover-Up Efforts Is NOT Harassment

But don't take *my* word for it U*Us. . .

Take the word of Canadian Journalists FOR Freedom Of Expression aka CJFE, as freely and very publicly expressed in this brand spanking new CJFE alert arising out of the recent arrest of Radio Canada journalist Antoine Trépanier on criminal harassment charges by the Gatineau police (SPVG).

Specifically these words from the CJFE Alert that I have added some additional hyperlinks to:

This is not the first concerning use of criminal harassment in Quebec in recent months. A Montreal area activist blogger Robin Edgar is facing a criminal harassment charge with a trial date set in late 2018. Edgar provided CJFE with court papers which reference repeated political demonstrations, public interactions and contentious questions he posed to Montreal’s Deputy Mayor Sue Montgomery. When asked directly by CJFE whether Edgar had ever given Montgomery a specific reason to fear for her safety, she stated that she had no such fears.

“Under the criminal code, criminal harassment is defined as behavior which causes the victim to fear for their safety. What we’ve seen now twice in Quebec is an attempt to use that portion of the criminal code to shield complainants from tough questions or uncomfortable or inconvenient interactions,” said CJFE Executive Director Duncan Pike.

“Journalists need to be able to do their jobs, which means asking tough questions. People have a right to challenge community leaders. Part of doing that is allowing journalists to do their jobs. The law is intended to protect victims of domestic abuse, stalking or other serious criminal behavior. Using it as a way to discourage or silence speech, advocacy or public interest journalism is deeply troubling.”

Here is the full typo-corrected text of the comment that I just posted in response to this CJFE alert:

Another way of saying “activist blogger” is “citizen journalist”, and in several phone calls I did warn CJFE staff that, if former Montreal Gazette “Justice Reporter”, Montreal Unitarian clergy abuse enabler, and Valérie Plante’s recently appointed Deputy Mayor(ess) of Montreal could get away with abusing her power and authority as mayor of Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce and Deputy Mayor(ess) of Montréal by having me arrested and charged with criminal harassment, in a deeply misguided and UNethical misuse of Canada’s criminal harassment law that was-is clearly intended to silence a vocal critic, that similar abusive misuses of Canada’s criminal harassment law could be used against professional journalists, and now it has actually happened. . . I can’t help but wonder if Yvonne Dubé got the idea to have Radio Canada journalist Antoine Trépanier arrested for alleged criminal harassment as a direct result of reading comparatively uncritical reports about me arrest for alleged criminal harassment of Sue Montgomery in La Presse and the Journal de Montréal etc.

I am very confident that I will be acquitted of the highly questionable criminal harassment charge that a Montréal Crown Prosecutor saw fit to bring against me (assuming that this dubious, if not completely bogus, criminal harassment charge is not dropped before the September 10th trial date) when the Crown Prosecutor is unable to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Montreal’s Deputy Mayor Sue Montgomery actually has “reasonable grounds” to fear for her safety. I firmly believed that it will be a miscarriage of justice if I am found guilty by a Québec court judge and I will most certainly appeal a guilty verdict. I was somewhat surprised that the Crown Prosecutor decided to file the charge, in light of the rather flimsy evidence against me that the SPVM provided to the Crown, but I would actually like this charge to go to trial so that I can further expose not only Sue Montgomery’s complicity in Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts, but also the SPVM incompetence that resulted in my arrest at Montréal city hall as I waited to ask Valérie Plante a question about how to go about filing a formal ethics complaint against her “less than honest” clergy abuse enabling, and indeed power abusing, Deputy Mayor Sue Montgomery. I hope to finally be able to ask Val Plante that question at an upcoming Montréal city council meeting, now that my lawyer was able to get my court imposed conditions clarified and modified in such a way that expressly allows me to attend city council meetings that are open to the public in Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce and Montréal proper.

“When asked directly by CJFE whether Edgar had ever given Montgomery a specific reason to fear for her safety, she stated that she had no such fears.”

This alone should be enough to introduce reasonable doubt that should ensure my acquittal, but there is other evidence that Sue Montgomery does not genuinely fear for her personal safety, even though she claimed to in her five page saga of a police report. Based on how Montreal Unitarian clergy abuse enabler Sue Montgomery has reacted to my peaceful public protests against her complicity in Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts, and my few “contentious questions” posed to her during and following Montreal’s municipal elections, I have no reason to believe that she genuinely fears for her personal safety in terms of fearing that I might physically assault her. I have a long track record of non-violence. The only thing Sue Montgomery fears for is her reputation, and I believe that Sue has only further damaged her reputation as a self-described “human rights defender” by attempting to misuse Canada’s criminal harassment law in her misguided efforts to prevent me from asking more “tough questions” about her complicity in, and even personal involvement in. . . Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up, and related misuse of SPVM power, at city council meetings.

As CJFE knows, and as The Gazette’s court reporter Paul Cherry effectively confirms in his shamefully biased reporting on my arrest that CJFE links to, The Gazette’s “Justice Reporter” Sue Montgomery somehow persuaded her employer to have Montreal media lawyer Mark Bantey have me served with a cease and desist demand letter (falsely) accusing me of making “libellous statements” about Sue’s complicity in Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts on December 4th of 2014. Funny how Paul Cherry neglected aka FAILed to mention that Sue Montgomery’s, and indeed The Gazette’s. . . dubious libel accusations against me have “not been proven in court” as newspapers normally do when libel accusations are not substantiated in a court of law. . . The Gazette’s and Sue Montgomery’s BS libel accusation against me will never be proven in court because they are demonstrably false, and I believe Mark Bantey knew this even before writing his worthless cease and desist demand letter that was never acted upon after I demolished his claims in my initial response to it.

I look forward to similarly discrediting the highly questionable “evidence” that is contained in Sue Montgomery’s five page police report which actually contains certain statements that may be used to introduce proverbial “reasonable doubt”. Doh!

Although I am not a professional journalist, I can be reasonably described as a “citizen journalist” or, as this CJFE statement puts it, an “activist blogger”. I remind CJFE and all professional journalists that the outcome of my trial, assuming it goes ahead, has serious implications for the ability of professional journalists to do their jobs, and call upon Canadian journalists who value freedom of expression to speak out against this disturbing misuse of Canada’s criminal harassment law as Sue Montgomery’s way of discouraging and-or silencing speech, advocacy, and indeed public interest citizen journalism.

SPVM Groupe Intervention Riot Cops And Unitarian Universalist Clergy Abuse Cover-Up - What's The Connection?

Well. . . besides the fact that it was SPVM Groupe Intervention riot cops responsible for handling security at Montreal city hall during Montreal city council meetings who arrested me for alleged criminal harassment of Montreal Unitarian clergy abuse enabler Sue Montgomery during the December 2017 Montreal city council meeting, as I was waiting to ask Montréal mairesse Valérie Plante a question about how to file a formal ethics complaint against Projet Montreal's "less than ethical" mayor of Montreal's Côte-des-Neiges Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough; two SPVM Groupe Intervention riot cops decided to intervene in my almost two decade old peaceful public protest outside the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal yesterday, just minutes after I had spoken with SPVM officers from PDQ 11 who had been called to the "church" as a result of a complaint called in by "less than honest" Montreal Unitarians. I had quite a pleasant chat about my ongoing peaceful public protest against Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse etc. with the driver of the Groupe Intervention van that parked in the bike lane in front of the "church" during the riot cops' intervention, and I asked him to say hello to his colleague M.M. Roy, who was the Groupe Intervention officer who officially handled my arrest at Montreal city hall on Monday December 11th, 2017, in a manner that I consider to be very polite, professional, and respectful. As I told M.M. Roy's colleagues yesterday, it was a pleasure to be arrested by him and his female partner.

Here is my first Tweet about this first actual SPVM Groupe Intervention intervention in my Unitarian "Church" of Montreal protest yesterday.


Here is the U*UTube video that records yesterday's interaction with SPVM officers from PDQ 11, followed by the intervention of the SPVM Groupe Intervention riot cops.

Islamophobia And The Unitarian "Church" of Montreal: What's The Connection?

Can U*Us say Valmyre "Val" Bourdon, and other "Islamophobic" aka anti-Muslim Atheist Unitarian bigots who were*, and possibly still are. . . members of the "less than honest" Unitarian "Church" Montreal?

Here is the online Facebook comment that I just posted in response to an article by Miriam Lafontaine in Concordia University's student newspaper The Link that is headlined:

Upcoming Vigils to Mark the Quebec City Mosque Shooting: Many Hope for a National Day Against Islamophobia

in which it is reported that a vigil against Islamophobia will be held today "between 4 and 7 p.m. at the Unitarian Church of Montreal, near Vendôme metro":

Things may have changed for the better, but in the mid-1990s, some of the most Islamophobic people I had the misfortune to know were the cranky, intolerant, and at times outright bigoted hard-core Atheist members of the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal. . . Following the first celebration of Creation Day in 1994, at what was left of the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal on Simpson Street, a very cranky Atheist Montreal Unitarian Valmyre "Val" Bourdon expressed his disgust that Muslims in traditional Muslim clothing had crossed the threshold of "his" church.



* The Montreal Unitarian anti-religious bigot Valmyre "Val" Bourdon is no longer a member of the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal because he passed on to the afterlife that he did not believe in some years ago, but other anti-religious Atheist Montreal Unitarians who displayed plenty of anti-religious bigotry, such as former UCM President Frank Greene are still members of the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal. Other anti-religious former Montreal Unitarians, such as Rev. Ray Drennan, are still members of the greater Canadian or North American Unitarian Universalist "religious" community.
