We don’t need to Albert Einstein to know that. Seems Joe Cressy , Mike Layton and many others don’t know it.

This police report was found on the street. It was passed on to me.

When James (Dr. Jamie) Gillis first began covering the city with posters blaspheming myself I was in shock (Blaspheme is Greek for slander). Then a friend sent me an email about the Duke of Wellington who when threatened with blackmail replied, “Publish and be damned.”

I thanked him. That is the only way to deal with the sort of person who does this.

The City Of Toronto’s poster Bylaws are well thought out and eminently fair. The Supreme Court of Canada, in the Ramsden Decision, defended street postering as Freedom of Speech for those without access to mainstream media. They did not defend it so that individuals could make a business out of it. They did not defend it so that lies and slanders could be published with impunity.

James Gillis began putting up street posters in 2000. Right from the start he posted material attacking myself and others.

Sunday, February 19, 2012.

This was when the street posters slandering myself began to go up in force. They were all over the city. These attacks have continued almost nonstop since. This was documented in The Globe And Mail: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/toronto/toronto-alternative-theatre-founder-stands-up-to-bullying-threats/article549053/

Letter from former James (Dr. Jamie) Gillis employee Robert Meade: Letter from Robert Meade (former employee of “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! What an asshole. I thought that he would have self-destructed by now, but he is a stubborn bastard. So yes, I can write a letter for you if you wish… not sure if that would help anything…You could think about suing him, maybe there is someone out there who might help you, it’s libel and it destroys your livelihood for him to have a public campaign like that. I mean there is a reason people don’t put up posters like that. But is there a point? I doubt he is actually hurting you that much and I’m sure there’s always been people who hated you.He just 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, or you ever need to call me, then my number is (Number on request).

Davisville Psycho

There is this nutjob in Davisville that doesn’t let anyone put up posters. Now, he’ll put up posters but no one else. We put up some posters last year, along Davisville from Yonge St. to Mt. Pleasant. We thought it was great. Bare poles, buildings, people walking by, clean, nice neighbourhood. Later that night we get a message. Someone threatening to smash our skulls in if we ever poster there again. So what do we do, we poster there again! We were told it was this big guy, riding around on a scooter, who was into animation and such. And we kept our eyes open. We stuck up posters, starting at Mt. Pleasant. We walked towards Yonge on Davisville, sticking up posters on the bare poles, keeping an eye out. We didn’t see anything. On our way back, posters seemed missing. Where we thought we put posters, there were none. We could have swore we stuck some up on that pole. We got in the car and sure enough we saw the culprit, in broad daylight, with a knife cutting posters off, clearing the streets of Davisville of posters. We tried confronting him and he just rushed off. Dr. Jamie of Dr. Jamie’s Eventshttp://www.drjamiesevents.com is the psycho who leaves death threats on people answering machines if they stick up a poster on a public property in Davisville!

Additionally James (Dr. Jamie) Gillis has sent many complaints to the city’s licensing and standards in an effort to shut down Reg Hartt. While MLS seems intent on ignoring Gillis’ infractions they are intent on shutting down Reg Hartt.

Laura Lind wrote in 1992, “Reg Hartt’s Cineforum is everything Jane Jacobs wrote about in THE DEATH AND LIFE OF GREAT AMERICAN CITIES.” What makes that statement particularly true is that my work in this city has never been valued by the people who run this city. I have been under attack from the moment I started in 1968. Said David Beard in a Toronto Star piece from 1980, “Reg Hartt is overworked, under-financed and snubbed. We should be paying tribute to him”

Posters are limited in size to 8 1/2 x 11 inches. This is eleven by seventeen inches. Business posters are not allowed on utility poles. The city seems to turn a blind eye to James Gillis’ violation while fining others.

Toronto’s Street Poster Bylaws are well thought out and fair. The problem is the city refuses to enforce them. They cry no money. The fines are $490.00 per violation.

I expected posters to go up around Dora Keogh’s smearing me. They did. They are being put up by and for James Gillis.

The author of this piece from the Toronto Star said, “The people at THE STAR think the films you show are trash.”

THE CINEFORUM is one of the few places on earth where Mickey can be Mickey.
