Trans Mountain Pipeline Harassment In Burnaby, BC.

Dear Jagmeet, Today the day after I posted a video exposing a man who started parking beside me a couple of weeks ago, for threatening my life over the trans mountain pipeline last week, the RCMP started following me around looking for an excuse to pull me over which they did not find one but when I parked the light on the SUV cruiser came on.
Dear Jagmeet, Today the day after I posted a video exposing a man who started parking beside me a couple of weeks ago, for threatening my life over the trans mountain pipeline last week, the RCMP started following me around looking for an excuse to pull me over which they did not find one but when I parked the light on the SUV cruiser came on. So he didn't pull me over for a moving violation but then said "I ran your plates and you don't have any insurance." So he didn't stop me but waited till I parked and claimed he ran my plates with no probable cause and claimed I had no insurance.

For some strange reason these pro pipeline people think I am key player in the pipeline protests.

I have no problem if my wife stopped paying the insurance after she threw me out penniless. I can take care of that. With this month's welfare check I was going to register and insure the car in BC but because I was questioning the officer as to why he was talking to me, he had know probable cause to talk to me, he decided to arrest me for obstruction and pile the biggest fine on me they could. They even wrote another order claiming there were no brakes which is not true. After more officers showed up and it began to sink in that I was going to make a case of their violations, all of a sudden the obstruction charge vanished and they released me.

I have gone to the RCMP in Metrotown to file a report against the man that threatened my life over the pipeline. I doubt they will do anything about it.

So my car is now at the Mundis yard and I am on the street. I will be spending my nights at the warming centre at Swangard stadium and busking when the rain allows in Metrotown.

I have to tell you Jagmeet I have been systematically harassed since I arrived back in Canada and there have been attempts on my life. I am no shrinking violet and I know that what is happening to me comes with the territory of activism but I am getting set up for something by these pipeline people.

I have been trying to find a room to rent but now without a car and staying at the warming centre I will attempt get social housing through the centre. I am not sure whether the RCMP were reacting to the video of the threat I posted on youtube and twitter to get me away from that guy or are apart of the systematic harassment. Regardless, they have far too much knowledge of my life they should. I am ok and will stay ok but no one should go through what I have gone through after returning to Canada.

It's impossible to be an activist these days thanks to bill C-51 but I shall find a way to keep fighting.

My twitter account is Lloydhart13 where you can see the video I posted and my phone is 236-878-2969.

In case no one has told you, you are doing a great job.

Cheers.
