The ad in question:

Shooting the Messenger: Till Death Do Us Part

244 pages $14.50 CDN www.amazon.ca/dp/1928023274

At the heart of Shooting the Messenger – Till Death Do Us Part is the story of my discovery of a multi-year, multi-million dollar fraud at the then Department of Foreign Affairs and my subsequent dismissal for failing to report the theft of additional millions. Without the benefit of a lawyer, I appealed my dismissal all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada. Till Death Do Us Part ends with the assisted death of my wife on the afternoon of July 5, 2019, away from where she had hoped to die, with only Scott Brison, while at Treasury Board, admitting to his helplessness.

Following are links to excerpts that attest to the factual truthfulness of the claims made in our ad. If the legal team has other concerns, we will try to address them; if not, we must insist that the Globe and Mail accept our advertising.

Without revealing how the fraud was discovered, two excerpts where the perpetrators admit to it.

Just like at the Ottawa Citizen, the Globe went dark.

I called a lawyer.

"Save you your money," she said "you've been 'cancelled.' Why don't you try advertising where they still value freedom of speech." Her suggestion of such a place was unacceptable.

I don't want to be labeled an extremist; that is not what I am, and who I am is reflected in my books. I am at an impasse, and will probably will remain there until the time comes to join my beloved.
