Cowardly, secretive, bullshit brought to you by the Union Bay Improvement District Board

What the hell have these tools been doing for the last year?  October 2017 an agreement was reached with good ole KIP (again) for the 4 acres of land for the water filtration system.

Not a mention of the water superintendent using an outdated turbidity tree for the last 5 YEARS!

What a slimy bunch of spineless goofs.

This meeting was 17 minutes.  No correspondence?  That’s not true and they know it.  When people are that comfortable lying it’s a good indicator of their character as it comes so natural to them.

The gutless wonders managing the safety of the water you consume.

Trustee Kaljur brought this up at a public meeting and was told the water superintendent would provide information regarding the water testing.
Well, that’s not on the agenda for the Sept. 20, 2018 meeting.  The gutless wonders may as well tell everyone to go f*** themselves – they don’t answer to anyone now that they are elected.  Remember, the Public is a distraction, that’s why they are doing everything in secret.

The Union Bay Improvement District’s main responsibility is to ensure safe potable water.  Isn’t that what they have been telling us for the last year?  How important it is to provide safe potable water for landowners.  Then why has the water superintendent, who has been employed for years by UBID and sent on all kinds of courses to make sure he is knowledgable and can be trusted to ensure our water is safe to drink – using the Turbidity Tree that has been obsolete since 2013?

In the last 5 years how many times should there have been a boil water advisory?

Here’s the 2013 Turbidity Tree that has been ignored.

Here are just three months from this superintendent where the NTU’s exceed >1   Dec. 2016, Jan. 2017 and Feb. 2017.

Most of us would be fine but it’s those with compromised immune systems that are at risk when bacteria attaches to particles in the water supply.

Thought you had a touch of the flu?

The underbelly of Union Bay – part three – same characters

Continuation of these posts:

https://allthingsunionbay.com/2018/07/23/the-underbelly-of-union-bay-part-two-bittens-and-the-union-bay-improvement-district/

https://allthingsunionbay.com/2018/07/26/the-underbelly-of-union-bay-part-two-bittens-and-the-union-bay-improvement-district-continued/

Not too many people are aware of the tactics used on those who dare to disagree or actually ask questions of KIP VP, Brian McMahon or the candidates and/or elected individuals of the Union Bay Improvement District.

At the March 2016 public meeting put on by Kensington Island Properties, Rodney Bitten (yes, the same one) decided he didn’t like my questions and could call me a stupid bitch – out of the blue – then deny it when I advised the moderator – David McDowell.  Typical.

The next one I witnessed was after the All Candidates Meeting hosted by Kensington Island Properties spokesperson, David Godfrey, Oct. 17 2016.  After the meeting I went over to Cleve (a candidate) at the front of the hall and Rodney Bitten (yes, the same one) was berating candidate Cleve Goldswain apparently upset stating he used to have respect for Cleve but no longer claiming the questions were rehearsed/planned.  Typical.

The next incident took place 2 days later at the All Candidates Meeting hosted by the Protect Our Water group.

At the time no one was aware of what prompted the ‘incident’ until Lone Jednorog (who was a candidate at the time) posted the following on her website, admitting that she and candidates Rick Bitten and Ted Haraldson had actually planned the ‘incident’.

These people are obviously paranoid!

This is the result of their plans.  The red J is for Lone Jednorog when she appears.

Then newly elected Rick Bitten offers an apology to Lone Jednorog (his partner in the incident) on behalf of the UBID with Chair Peter Jacques claiming that although the All Candidates Meeting was held at the community hall it applies to UBID as the candidates are running for the positions of trustee and he then proceeds to apologize to Lone Jednorog.  Keep this in mind as you read on.  Chair Jacques is proclaiming his jurisdiction over what transpired even though he was NOT present Oct. 19, 2016.

Then in April 2017 another All Candidates Meeting was held with the candidates for Union Bay Improvement District attending.  Scott Fraser (now our MLA) didn’t ask a question but offered information regarding the process of joining the Regional District.

Rodney Bitten (yes, the same one) took exception to Scott Fraser’s comments and approached him and let him know how upset he was that Scott’s comments were not a question.  Typical.

At the November 2017 UBID meeting Lone Jednorog decides she’s going to harass me and follows me around after the meeting taunting me about the (false) police reports made by Rodney Bitten (yes, the same one).  Typical.

At the Feb. 2018 UBID meeting Trustee Loxam’s wife decides she’ll have a go at me at the end of the meeting and tries to get in my face harassing me and wants to know if I’m recording the meeting.  Typical.

Would anyone else get away with the actions of these 2 ******* at UBID meetings?  Typical.

The cowardly UBID trustees refused to allow a letter of complaint from a landowner who wrote about the harassment they suffered from Trustee Rick Bitten and Rodney Bitten (yes, the same one) as they left  Annual General Meeting in April 2018.  It seems the Bittens were upset at the question the landowner asked during the question period.  This is the question.  I suspect the Bittens were furious at the answer provided by Trustee Kaljur but took it out on the landowner.  Typical.

The response the landowner received from Chair Jacques was that he didn’t witness the harassment by Rick Bitten and Rodney Bitten.  Remember how he had a lot to say about the ‘incident’ involving Jednorog, Bitten and Haraldson in spite of the fact he wasn’t even at the meeting?  Suddenly, harassment is okay because Jacques didn’t see it himself.  Typical.

This cowardly board is not allowing landowners letters to be submitted because they don’t want the landowners to know what they are doing.  They can’t answer questions justifying their actions because they are simply puppets and lapdogs for youknowwho and that’s why they are having ‘executive meetings’ and quarterly meetings instead of monthly.  They are cowards.  Typical.

The underbelly of Union Bay Part Two – Bittens and the Union Bay Improvement District continued

June 9, 2017 Rodney Bitten https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1758623988  calls police and provides a shitload of ‘alternative facts’ to Const. Palmer who arrests me and charges me with assault.  Condition of my undertaking is to have no contact with Rodney Bitten.  No problem – never wanted anything to do with him in the first place.

The pic below shows the wood boards Bitten put up and attached to my garage after he had me charged with assault.  Quite the story he told the police June 9, 2017 about how he saw the post on the ground in the morning and his wife was upset and crying.  He supposedly went to work and was so upset, and I love this claim:  Rodney Bitten claims the police and the bylaw officer told him to go home and finish his fence – bullshit!

Court date is scheduled for the beginning of August 2017 and the day before court I receive a phone call from the RCMP stating the charge has been withdrawn.  No explanation.

Although I’m not under any conditions, I do not speak or contact Rodney Bitten.  Then at the end of Sept. 2017 I receive a phone call from Const. Palmer advising me Rodney Bitten has made an application for a peace bond as he fears physical injury.  Another undertaking that I am not to have contact with what’s his name – no problem.  I didn’t have to attend court Oct. 5, 2017 and Oct. 19, 2017 as Jason Gratl arranged for an agent to act on his behalf.

Then shortly after noon on Oct. 19, 2017, two police cars arrive and a male and female officer advise me that I have breached my undertaking by supposedly calling Rodney Bitten a hillbilly across the fence.  This is a completely false story made up by Rodney Bitten who was pissed that I didn’t have to attend court.  I’ll spare you my thoughts on what kind of person would file a false police report.

Now there is a charge of breaching my undertaking and the peace bond application.  Another undertaking not to have contact with what’s his name.  So how do you prove you didn’t do something when you live alone?  Since Rodney Bitten pulled this once, there was no reason to think he wouldn’t do it again.  I love gadgets so the answer was to wear an audio device and record every minute of my life when I was at home alone and would have the proof to dispute any further false police reports by Rodney Bitten.  Starting Oct. 19, 2017 I recorded everything so if you spoke to me – you were recorded.

Bitten has really pulled out all the stops and claims he’s worried about his family and includes his parents, worried in his home, worried in his yard, and worried at community functions – and worried about going to court. All because of me – claiming an acquaintance of mine was spotted in the parking lot when he left court and was concerned if it was meant to intimidate.

At this point, Rodney Bitten introduces the Union Bay Improvement District into the works by claiming the dispute over the garden against my garage escalated due to his father (daddy Rick Bitten) being elected.  March 2016 daddy Bitten was not a trustee, in fact, he wasn’t a trustee until Oct. 2016.

Arranged to have my property surveyed Oct. 23, 2017 and surprise, surprise, Rodney Bitten’s fence frame panels are directly on the property line in spite of the fact he told the Bylaw Officer at the CVRD that his new fence frame was well within his property to maintain ownership – see – more bullshit.  Rodney Bitten knew where the property line was in March 2016 by his own string line and yet he insisted the 18 inches to the right of his string line was his property.  Why?

On Oct. 30, 2017, Jason Gratl arranged for a process server for the lawsuit to be served on Rodney and Megan Bitten  https://allthingsunionbay.com/2017/10/30/two-words-for-those-who-think-im-alone-and-a-easy-target-jason-gratl/.  Now, you will notice in the apology letter Rodney Bitten states as of Oct. 30, 2017, they have a clearer understanding of the property boundaries.  What you don’t know is that Rodney Bitten tried to have me arrested Oct. 30, 2017, because he claimed being served with the legal documents was ‘contact’ which he claimed breached my undertaking.  When that didn’t work he then made up a brand new lie claiming he came home and noticed a survey marker and realized his garden might be on my property and that he went out back and was removing the garden when he looked up and saw me on my deck video recording him and laughing at him.

Remember that audio device I’m wearing?  Well, I can prove exactly what I was doing during that time including phone calls with the process server and neighbours.  Bittens are lucky we didn’t get to Examinations for Discovery – all the lies would have been exposed.

Lots of lies in their response to the lawsuit.  Rodney Bitten sure has changed his tune from this:  https://allthingsunionbay.com/2017/11/15/mary-reynolds-vs-rodney-bitten-and-meghan-bitten-response-filed-nov-15-2017/

Rodney Bitten and Megan Bitten’s lawyer advises that the Bitten’s will remove their garden from my property and it is agreed to take place Nov. 15, 2017.  So now we know it is my property.  True to form, Bitten doesn’t wait until Nov. 15, 2017, and when I return from town Nov. 10, can see where they have removed some of the ties and soil.  When I post that rats must have been at my garage – Bitten’s are upset – but completely ignore that they knew they were trespassing at this point.

Nov. 15, 2017 rolls around and Rodney Bitten and Freda (see pic below) from down the street remove most of the garden but leave a foot of soil and the white material against my garage because they know if they remove it – the damage would be visible.  Freda is the name I gave the guy who called me a ‘c**t’.

The slimy, cowardly Union Bay Improvement District saw an opportunity to prevent me from attending the monthly meetings so Chair Peter Jacques, without the knowledge of the full board sent me a letter which he copied to the RCMP and Crown Counsel in an attempt to have me arrested for breaching my undertaking because Rick Bitten – daddy Bitten to Rodney Bitten – is a trustee.

Jason Gratl appeared with me in court Dec. 14, 2017 (same day as the Union Bay Improvement District monthly meeting) to clarify my undertaking to ensure I can attend the UBID meetings.  Well, what a surprise.  The Crown Counsel stated in court that it was never the Crown’s intention to prevent me from attending meetings.  The slimy, secretive, cowardly Union Bay Improvement District took this action without the knowledge of Trustees Kaljur and Elliott.

Do Peter Jacques, Rick Bitten, and Glen Loxam know the Union Bay Improvement District tried to shut me up before with a lawsuit and ended up paying me $15,000. on top of tens of thousands for their own legal fees?  Again, a victory thanks to Jason Gratl.

During the Dec. 14, 2017, court appearance Jason Gratl had requested disclosure documents from the Crown.  The judge gave the Crown a month to provide the requested documents.  Correspondence back and forth between Jason and the Crown without much success.

Bitten’s put up this funny sign – LOVE THY NEIGHBORS.

Jason arranges another court date  March 28, 2018 to request the court to review the disclosure documents the Crown is not providing.   Jason calls me March 27, 2018 and advises the Crown has stayed all the proceedings.

That leaves Examinations for Discovery scheduled for July 2018.  This is the meat.  This is where I thoroughly enjoy watching Jason.  When I met Jason years ago and watched him in Examinations for Discovery I couldn’t imagine anyone getting away with a lie.  The Bittens have gotten off easy with the money and an apology because the numerous lies and false police reports would have all been exposed.

Hope they enjoyed paying the legal fees for my amazing lawyer, Jason Gratl.  http://www.gratlandcompany.com/

The value to me is the apology letter.  So after all the false claims about me – now what does Rodney Bitten say about Mary Reynolds?

We regret any suggestion that Ms. Reynolds is a threat to our safety; we recognize that she is not.

  • What was Rodney Bitten’s motivation in this matter when he knew he asked permission to put the garden against my garage because he knew it was my property?
  • Why didn’t he just remove the garden when I showed him the damage?
  • I never asked him to pay or fix the damage – why did he call the police claiming I was damaging his property by removing items on my property?
  • Why would Rodney Bitten claim his property line went down to my garage and suddenly took an 18 inch right angle to my garage and then back out at the end of my garage?
  • Why did Rodney Bitten make a false police report Oct. 19, 2017, claiming I had breached my undertaking by supposedly speaking to him?  This is the worst thing he did because I believe it was an attempt to drive me from my home.
  • Would Rodney Bitten have taken these actions against me if I were a man or did he think I was an easy target because I’m a senior woman?
  • Why are some people raised with low standards in Union Bay?

Love the new fence!!
