FIRST EFFORT AT NEGOTIATING ADDITIONAL OUT OF COURT SETTLEMENT FOLLOWING CONCLUSION OF WRONGFUL DISMISSAL COURT CASE

 

I decided to pursue this because of a series of criminal or quasi-criminal acts by SNC and their lawyers between the start of proceedings in early 1983 up to August 1991.

 

These consisted of a combination of delays at various times for frivolous reasons and culminated in 1991 with SNC having an entire floor of office furniture seized and sold from at their downtown Montreal H.Q., followed by seizure of their Bank Account at the Royal Bank of Canada for non-payment of the Court settlement.

 

They were offences under Section 139 of the Criminal Code designed to obstruct, pervert or defeat the course of justice.

 

I detailed what these offences were in a letter dated July 31st 1991to SNC President and C.E.O. Guy Saint-Pierre and demanded $1.5 million additional compensation out of court in order not to make a scandal involving SNC. An attachment titled "OUTSTANDING ISSUES CONCERNING SNC INC." was included. At this point they had had office furniture seized FOR NON-PAYMENT OF THE COURT JUDGEMENT.

 

I HAD NO REPLY TO THIS.

 

I wrote to Guy Saint-Pierre again on August 21st 1991, at which point they had had their Bank Account at the Royal Bank of Canada seized for the same reason. During the previous two weeks their lawyers, in order to waste more time and force up my legal bills, had attempted to short-change me based on a false allegation that $3,000 was deductible on account of Income Tax - from the $10,000 settlement, and so had unilaterally withheld the $3,000. In addition they had attempted to force me to sign a declaration undertaking to take no further legal action against SNC to pursue additional compensation. I and my lawyers refused to sign any such declaration. (This is documented elsewhere on this web site). Further, SNC had fired their own lawyers Dunton, Rainville, Toupin and Perreault during the previous two weeks.

 

.Guy Saint-Pierre finally replied on September 11th 1991 with a false pretence that everything was in order. It was not, as will now be perfectly clear.
