An open letter to James Gillis (aka “DR. JAMIE) of DR. JAMIE’S EVENTS PROMOTION and DR. JAMIE’S USED BIKES.
I am posting the NEW TESTAMENT references to deal with the “anonymouse” hate phone call you or one of your friends left me stating that if I don’t accept your/their version of Jesus I am going to burn in Hell. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_MfdqCUqWw
I make a point of helping the helpless. Over the years you have made a point of harming them. Unless YOU have a change of heart for the better on Judgement Day it will be you not I the LORD will be telling to go to Hell.
Matthew 25:31-46English Standard Version (ESV)
The Final Judgment
31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,[a] you did it to me.’
41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ 44 Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ 45 Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’ 46 And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
Luke 10:25-37New International Version (NIV)
The Parable of the Good Samaritan
25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”
27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]”
28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”
29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”
37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”
Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
Now let us look at the Laws regarding Street Postering.
1. Supreme Court of Canada Ramsden Decision:
2. City Of Toronto Poster Bylaws:
THE SUPREME COURT OF CANADA RAMSDEN DECISION is a landmark decision. It defends street postering as FREEDOM OF SPEECH FOR PEOPLE WITHOUT ACCESS TO MAINSTREAM MEDIA (magazines, newspaper, movie theaters, radio, television, etc..).
They did not do that so that one person (you, me or anyone else) could make a business out of it.
THE CITY OF TORONTO POSTER BYLAWS limit poster size to an 8 1/2 by 11 inch size with only one poster per event per kiosk.
Do you, James Gillis, keep those bylaws? Let’s take a look at one of your recent postings: http://reghartt.ca/cineforum/?p=14978
I limit my posters to the legal size.
Here is your current flyer attacking myself.
On it you state several things that are wrong which is nothing unusual for you. You state, “Reg Hartt admits to the Metro News, Tues July 28, to communicating to murder his competitor, Dr. Jamie.”
First, I am not your competitor. I promote my events. On occasion when asked I help others promote their events. I am not in the business of putting up street posters. If you look at the CITY POSTER BYLAWS illustration of kiosks and bulletin boards above you will see posters there for my Ayn Rand presentation. Right from the get go the City established that my posters have a right to be there. Your posters, in the main, do not.
Secondly, I did not admit to communicating to murder you because I have not the desire to murder you (though, clearly, from the material you have posted your heart is evil to many including myself). What I did say to Jessica Smith Close, the Metro News Reporter, in an email sent July 24, 2015, is that I do not desire your death. She saw fit not to report that which was her decision. She had the information. Maybe it did not suit her purpose in painting as black a picture of myself as she could. What I do desire (and what I stated to her) is that you begin to behave in a more civil manner. I don’t think that an unreasonable desire.
Jessica Smith Close asked for a timeline. It seems she ignored it in writing her piece. Here is that I sent her:
Timeline with links:
Jamie posted flyers about five years ago stating he has been postering for over 14 years. When he first started postering he put flyers attacking myself. I have them on file.
2008: Jamie sifts through the ashes of Duke’s Cycle for bicycle parts after Queen Street West Fire: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7D4d8jMeFo.
December 10, 2010: Terry Ross (Terry The Rat) Video. Terry Ross was employed by Gillis to put up posters. He owed him a lot of money and refused to pay Terry. Gillis came up behind Ross on Queen Street, knocked him down and beat him so harshly Terry went to a hospital. The attack was witnessed by a police officer who told Terry to press charges. Tery said, “I’m not a rat,” and refused to. That was in 2009. Shortly after the posters targeting Terry appeared all over downtown Toronto. This video was posted Dec. 10, 2010.
Sunday, June 20, 2010:
This was the next attack by Gillis over street postering: http://posterstoronto.blogspot.ca/2010/06/davisville-psycho.html . Note they state death threats were left on their telephone.
Two years pass.
February 2, 2012:
The first vicious attack on myself surfaced in the comments section (now deleted) in this piece published in NOW magazine. I believe I have them all on a hard drive. Then they appeared as street flyers. They are followed by the REG HARTT PEDOPHILE POSTERS. https://nowtoronto.com/news/papering-over-postering-rights/
Feb 6, 2012, Daniel Goggin: IS DR. JAMIE WORSE THAN IGOR KENK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrEV_VrZhuI
February 24, 2012: Oliver Moore, of THE GLOBE AND MAIL, publishes this article appears in: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/toronto/toronto-alternative-theatre-founder-stands-up-to-bullying-threats/article549053/
Feb 18, 2013: Daniel Goggin talks about being targeted by Jamie with street posters, about being asked to use fire damaged parts to repair bicycles, about being asked to certify unsafe bikes:
July 30, 2014, Joe Cressy runs for council. He drops by 463 Bathurst Street (The Cineforum) First thing he says is, “I’ve seen those flyers. This is hate.”
Summer 2014: I start to get anonymous threatening telephone calls. On May 13, 2015 I post them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_MfdqCUqWw
Just found this by accident. No idea (?!) who created this site with the triple x porn link at the top. Know I did not: http://itvideo.me/page/Reg-Hartt
If you wish I can make you a DVD of the many posters that have been made attacking others and myself. My posters are routinely torn up and posted in clumps behind those posted by Jamie. You can see that here:
Yes, my “IS IT TIME TO EXTERMINATE DR. JAMIE posters are extreme. Their intention was not, however, to exterminate you but to draw attention to the people you have been trying to exterminate over the years.
Now let’s take a long hard (and disgusting) look at the posters you have been putting up. The miracle is that after suffering all this abuse from you I do not desire your death.
What I do desire is that you stop, just stop, putting up cowardly “anonymouse” flyers meant to bring as much harm as possible upon the heads of those targeted in them.
Jessica Smith Close calls herself an “investigative journalist.” Well, she did not do much investigating. Another person who calls himself a journalist, said, “take me off your email list.”
Jamie, you have harmed an awful lot of people over the years. Has it never occurred to you that all of them would leap at the chance to speak out against you testifying in a court room.
Here is what one of them, John-Paul Re, has to say: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIP17OeXDCg.
And, yes, I do take down posters. The fine for covering a poster is $490.00. Instead of covering out of date posters (as most do) I stop to take them down. I also spoke with the City’s Bylaw Office. They confirmed that I have the right to take down illegal oversize posters as well as multiple copies of the same poster. Again, if I cover them (as most do) the fine is $490.00. I’d rather take the time, do it right and keep the money in my pockets.
To sum up, Jamie.
I don’t want you dead. I do want you behaving in a respectable manner.
If that is too much to ask of you please find another city in which to wreak your destruction.
These are just a few of the thousands of posters put up by James Gillis (Dr. Jamie) of DR. JAMIE’S EVENTS PROMOTION and DR. JAMIES POLICE AUCTION BIKES. You can email him directly at email@example.com .
Please help me end this. Thank you.
What would Jane Jacobs do? She’d do to Jamie what she did to Robert Moses. She would stop him.
There are two kinds of people. There are those who say, “There is nothing I can do.” Like the priest and the Levite in the parable of the good Samaritan, they walk on by. Then there are the ones like Jane Jacobs and the Samaritan (who, in the eyes of the priest and Levite was unclean filth) who know there is always something we can do. John Semley belongs to the ones who walk on by. Who do you belong with? The best WALK WITH JANE JACOBS AND THE SAMARITAN.
Joe Fioritio, in THE TORONTO STAR, asked, “And you will permit me an observation: if Martin Sheen can come to town and stand on the picket line with striking hotel workers, why won’t our senior cineastes stand up for Reg Hartt, as the city moves to strike him down?”
The answer is that those folks are with the priest and the Levite. They walk on by. This is why I don’t go to TIFF. I have no time for hypocrites. Neither did Jane.–Reg Hartt, 8/3/2015.
Here is what Jessica Smith Close chose to close her eyes to. If you want to read the anti-homosexual religious propaganda he sent me ask for it. It has nothing to do with Christ and everything to do with the author of lies and murder.
