Canadian father deported to Australia over spat with girlfriend — The case of Tavis Lamprell, the father who got deported from Canada to Australia (and you thought they didn’t do that anymore) for arguing with his girlfriend, is not the first such case of deportation from Canada.
Fortunately, Tavis Lamprell’s case did have a good ending:
A Canadian permanent resident who was wrongfully deported to Australia almost two years ago because of a government agency’s slip-up in processing his file can legally return to Canada and reunite with his daughter. More…
That is not always so, when fathers are being deported. For instance, there was the 2001 case of Erwin Miller (not his real name), a jewelry manufacturer from St. Albert (near Edmonton) who served five years in jail and in prison (he spent a long time in remand, before his case got to trial) in a case of mutual stalking between him and his then-wife, while his ex got off with spending not a single day in jail and without even a nominal sentence. After all, even though the “stalking” was a mutual dance, she was not charged with having submerged herself in being a perpetrator of the crime of stalking.
Well, Erwin’s was at least the start of such a case that, even though it never went to its conclusion, nevertheless had the intended outcome.
You see, Erwin was the first Alberta man indicted of the crime of stalking (the stalking happened in about 1992-93) under Alberta’s then brand-new anti-stalking law. Appearances are that the system made a show trial out of his case, and that – of course – for that reason the system had to make its case against Erwin and crush him.
Erwin had paid for his ex’s education as a psychotherapist and had paid for her practice. She fell in love with one of her patients, a Ms Ferland (in a clear case of violation of the doctor-to-client relationship), who then moved into their marital bedroom. According to Erwin, Ms Ferland slept right next to his and his wife’s connubial bed, on the floor, but she eventually moved right into Erwin’s rightful place in his own bed, replacing him.
Incidentally, they all had all sort of company there, since Erwin’s soon-to-be ex had bestowed a good number of different personalities (I believe it was close to a hundred) on her lesbian-lover-cum-client. I am not making this up on the fly. It happened.
As to be expected, Erwin’s ex turned out to be a good housekeeper. She kept the house that Erwin had bought; she kept the kids, car, cash and castle.
The case is a bit too complicated to relate here in its entirety, but after Erwin got out of jail (in about 1997), he first got served with a restraining order that barred him from Alberta, and then, on the strength of Erwin having been found guilty of being a criminal, a deportation hearing began in Feb. 2001. Doug Christie was his lawyer. (See also Western Canada Concept)
Doug Christie argued in immigration court that Erwin could not get a fair hearing under the immigration board judge that heard Erwin’s case in Edmonton. He said that there was a reasonable apprehension of bias because the minister of immigration had appointed the judge.
Upon that, after a short recess, the judge returned to announce that the case had to be adjourned until a few months later. Ultimately and unfortunately – perhaps fortunately – there was no ending to the court case – Erwin didn’t wait to be deported. He left on his own and vanished from Canada before the next court hearing took place in November of that year.
The legal industry (but not Doug Christie) made a bundle on that case; and its victim lost his family, a fortune, his income, his business and his freedom in Canada. That is what it is or at least comes to: asset transfer from the victim to the players in the legal industry. It’s not about justice at all. That went out of the window as soon as political correctness came in through the back-door.
Update 2007 11 11: As the comments pertaining to this story show, it is difficult for virtually anyone, even for some of those who went through the experience of the consequences of a 911-call, to accept that once a 911-call over alleged domestic violence has been made by a woman (even if she then insists that no violence happened), the bureaucratic machinery then set into motion can and will destroy a man and his family. For more on that, do this search: <Shout at spouse, lose your house>.
By the way, while speaking of deporting fathers, there is also the restriction of freedom of movement in Canada, not only for men who lose their drivers licenses, for men like Tavis Lamprell and Erwin Miller, but for someone like Doug Christie, a lawyer and man who not only never committed a crime and never even went through the charade of having been found guilty of one he didn’t commit.
Doug Christie has been banned from being on Parliament Hill! (See, politically-correct Wikipedia never reported anything about that.)
For someone in power, instead of closing his eyes when faced by the truth, it is far more convenient and practical to ban the truth.
There is nothing new under the sun:
August Heinrich Hoffmann von Fallersleben
Our sovereigns promised us much,
But the keeping seemed not their obligation.
Is it that we did so many crimes,
That they didn’t keep their pledge?
It is getting worse from day to day,
To be silent is our only right:
Subjects aren’t entitled to complaints,
And the slave must obey his lord.
Our brothers are ordered to be deported,
Of greater value than all rights is the police.
Today it hits this one, tomorrow that one,
Every, every German is an outlaw.
German Liberty only lives in song,
German right, it only is a tale,
German welfare is a long peace ——
Full of avarice and censorship.
Therefore we leave the fatherland,
Neither now nor ever to return,
Seek our freedom on foreign shores ——
Only freedom is life, is happiness.
Published at some point during the first half of the 19th century
There once was freedom in Canada. In 1962 I took my wife and three children to enjoy Canadian freedom. Now neither Germany nor Canada nor any of the developed nations have it any longer. All they have is political correctness. Men are now second-class citizens and regarded as sub-human everywhere.
Now men not merely get deported or leave on their own to places where they think they still can find freedom. The problem with men is now a very deadly one. Millions of men each year take the ultimate escape, they commit suicide, at rates not seen since the Great Depression. For men, depression is now endemic and causes men to kill themselves in epidemic proportions throughout the world.
However, as the feminists see it, that is a good thing. Every dead man is a good man.
