Just had a great chat with criminal lawyer Walter Fox. (see his bio below)
Armed with his info and words of wisdom, I feel much more confident about my upcoming appearance in front of the Justice of the Peace in Ottawa.
For any of you who find yourselves in a similar situation, here's an overview of what I learned (although some of the following points I gleaned not from Mr. Fox but from my law library research over the past few weeks):
- I shouldn't try to 'cherry pick' info from my recently purchased 2077 page Martins's Annual Criminal Code as it was written by politicians for lawyers (I admit - it is not exciting reading)
- I might be able to obtain the documents I need to prove my case by filing a "3rd Party Records Request" on, or before, my Pre Enquete
- In legalise, what I am claiming is that there was "a breach of duty of care" and that Mr. Fuchs's "death was hastened by unlawful intervention" (I have added both phrases to my court submission)
- "Informed Consent" - which means that a health practitioner must have provided to him all the information that a reasonable person would need to grant the aforementioned consent.
- A Power of Attorney for Health Care does not come into effect until there has been a 'finding of incapacity' and that must be determined by an assessor who would then issue a Certificate of Incapacity
- "Failure to provide the necessaries of life" - when it results in death - is manslaughter
- The findings of the Coroner will be forwarded to the Crown Prosecutor, who will then decide whether to lay charges - if the Crown hasn't already done so as a result of the presentation I make at my January 4, 2016 court appearance.
- If my criminal court action fails for lack of 'evidentiary mass' then within a week or so the opposition's lawyer will likely file a civil case against me for 'malicious prosecution' - which I will likely lose, and subsequently, the court will clean me out - everything - bank account - savings - auctionable valuables - I will however, be able to keep the clothes I am wearing since public nudity is illegal.
