Arbitration Denied by Vince Ready For Describing Possible Human Rights Violation

Denying arbitration in an attempt to achieve the intent to deceive Statistics Canada and Finance Canada for BC Statistics’ officials’ personal gain.

There was something very wrong going on at BC Statistics. Datasets were mislabelled, misplaced, missing. The models were not working - the results were way off what Statistics Canada was coming up with. Numbers were being changed outside of the models.

I fixed many of the problems and provided easily implementable solutions. The long time co-workers reacted negatively to the improvements. Rather than working together to make improvements, I became the target of yelling and blamed for things I did not do wrong. My requests for mediation were denied and I was eventually fired and denied arbitration.

Having not been told the real reason I was being run off the job (to remove anyone who would discover the falsification of information provided to Statistics Canada and Finance Canada), I included the possibility of Human Rights violations in my letter to the BC Government Employee's Union, cc'd to Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Labour and Citzens Services, Gordon Macette. I included several possible grounds for the dismissal including being innovative (my refinements were met with increasing antagonism), age (the BCGEUnion said they would not represent me if I were too old and close to retirement), sex (a female friend suggested that if I were a female I would be represented), ancestry (Dave O'Neil considered people with mixed ancestry to be whiners or looking for a hand out, etc.), etc.

With no help coming from the BCGEU I forwarded my grievance to the BC Human Rights Tribunal. The Chair person wrote dismissing each of the grounds I had included except for ancestry. I wrote asking why ancestry was not dismissed, to which she replied I would need to go to BC Supreme Court. Interestingly, the lawyer I had retained refused to proceed claiming I would look like a whiner (perhaps a good buddy with BC Statistics Officials?).

Just then, January 2007, a BCGEU staff representative, Jan O'Brian, called me to say that I could trust her (she lied).

Using the Canadian Charter of Rights to deny protection under the law

At a hearing, June 22, 2007 (notice June 22 comes up alot in this case) I was denied arbitration by Vince Ready who determined that by raising human rights issues I had gone down the wrong channel (dumber and dumber). What's the right channel?

Denying mediation and a fair hearing to address the real matters in dispute, (namely, the real methods used by BC Stats to create population numbers) on the grounds that I had gone down the wrong channel is a violation of the Canadian Charter of Rights:

15 (1) Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.

Canadians also have the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty:

Any person charged with an offence has the right a) to be informed without unreasonable delay of the specific offence; b) to be tried within a reasonable time; c) not to be compelled to be a witness in proceedings against that person in respect of the offence; d) to be presumed innocent until proven guilty according to law in a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal;

I continue to request an open public hearing into the real methods used by BC Statistics.
