Read this first:
Yesterday (Saturday, October 3, 2015) I was given a copy of a police report filed by James Gillis (Dr. Jamie of Dr. Jamie’s Events, Campus Postering, Toronto Street Poster Alliance and Dr. Jamie’s Used Bikes).
It seems flyers were posted near his home threatening his life. Until I got this report by chance I had no idea where he lives. I am not going to post it here. If you would like to see it contact me privately.
That leaves two possibilities. The first is that a concerned citizen who lives near him has so much time on their hands they have taken to creating and posting flyers targeting him. The second (and more likely) probability is that he created it himself and is using it as another weapon in his twenty year campaign against myself and many others.
In this report he has stated that when he lived here I was making videos of young boys which made him feel uncomfortable causing him to move.
I did not get my first camera until long after he had left. That’s another of his lies. The nice thing about sharing this house is that I have plenty of witnesses to my actions then and now.
Those witnesses also include people who once worked for the man. They believed the stories he told them about me up until the moment they found his knife in their back.
He states in the report that I have made slanderous remarks about him on this site. That is not true.
What is true is that I have posted the testimony of others who have been harmed by him including links to where such testimony can be found on the web.
For example, I stated that according to reports Gillis has used fire damaged bicycle parts on his POLICE AUCTION BIKES. The evidence for that comes from Daniel Goggin who worked for Gillis as a bicycle mechanic in a video posted by myself on youtube. In another video John-Paul Re who briefly worked for Gillis posting flyers speaks about the experience.
As well I have posted links to comments made on the web by people who bought his used bikes with their “free warranty” only to discover the warranty wore out the moment they discovered a fault with the bike. For some it was a one day warranty.
Oliver More in THE GLOBE AND MAIL did an excellent piece on the poster smear campaigns conducted against myself and others over the years http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/toronto/toronto-alternative-theatre-founder-stands-up-to-bullying-threats/article549053/. There is not a more reputable paper in the country.
Where I come from when we see someone being bullied we stop the bully. That was long ago and far away. Times have changed.
THE METRO NEWS did a very poor piece on this last summer. Their headline said it was a feud between myself and Gillis.
It is not a feud. It is myself standing up for those who have been smeared by him. They asked for a timeline. I gave it to them.
Here it is:

Email from Robert Meade (past employee of James Gillis aka Dr. Jamie): “I can’t believe Jamie has done that stuff to you. Terry I can believe, he really hated him. I remember that when I was first working with Jamie he was fucking this fourteen year old girl who was addicted to crack!…He gave the girl money, and she was clearly an addict. He bragged to me about how many times he fucked her and how old she was. Terry might remember that too. In any case morally I think that’s a lot more questionable than anything Reg Hartt or Rob Meade has done. You can go ahead and put up a poster if you like, and give my name to whoever. If you give my name to someone as a character reference.
In the police report Gillis claims I alleged he raped a 14 year old girl. I do not allege anything. I report. According to Terry Ross the girl in question the the niece of a police officer in 14 Division. I would think the police would make a stronger effort where a member of their own family is concerned. I guess not.
The police asked for and received the contact information necessary to confirm the report.
Frankly, I expect that while most of you who read this do care nothing will come from the people who should care.
When my Councillor Joe Cressy was running for office he stopped by. He said, “I have seen those posters. They are hate.”
I thought that when Joe got in office he would act to end that hate. I thought wrong. Like others before him Joe is silent.
Ironically, it was Tom Beyer in then Mayor Ford’s office who got things turned around.
Rob Ford is like the Samaritan in Jesus’s parable of The Good Samaritan. To the priest and the scribe who passed by the wounded man and did nothing the Samaritan was scum. In the eyes of those who should have helped and did nothing Rob Ford is scum.
God bless the scum.
Nonetheless, Tom was unable to get city authorities to take action against James Gillis.
Do I expect those in authority now to do anything?
Don’t be silly. Of course not. They only thing I expect is for them to turn their eyes and walk by.
I live in hope that somewhere there is another man or woman of integrity working for the city like Tom Beyer or the woman in former mayor David Miller’s office.
Henry Miller in his OPEN LETTER TO SURREALISTS EVERYWHERE wrote, “…When at last each man realizes that nothing is to be expected from
God, or society, or friends, or benevolent tyrants, or democratic governments, or saints, or saviours, or even that holiest of holies, education, when each man realizes that he must work with his own hands to save himself, and that we need expect no mercy, perhaps then…Perhaps! Even then, seeing what manner of men we are, I doubt. The point is that we are doomed…No God is coming to save us. No system of government, no belief will provide us with that liberty and justice which men whistle for with the death-rattle….What distinguishes the majority of men from the few is their inability to act according to their beliefs. The hero is he who raises himself above the crowd…To get men to rally round a cause, a belief, an idea, is always easier that to persuade them to live their own lives.”
If there is not a person of integrity that’s fine.
We all have to learn to stand alone. I have been doing just that for a long time now.
