Court File No. T-2191-04

Federal Court - Trial Division

Between:

Arthur Mainil (Plaintiff)

-and-

The Canadian Wheat Board and Meyers Norris Penny (Defendants)

Affidavit

I, Tom Jackson, 2004 District 4 CWB Candidate, in the town of Killam, AB, make oath and say that:

  1. I am a 2004 District 4 CWB Candidate, and as such have personal knowledge of the matters presented and included in my file: 171204 the "Supplementary Written Representation of the Proposed Intervener Tom Jackson".
     
  2. I have not seen any of the Defendants materials.
     
  3. I have received the Plaintiff's materials.
     
  4. I request the Honourable Court enter into evidence Exhibit "C", "D", "E", "F" and Exhibit "G" to this my Affidavit.
     
  5. I submit these Exhibits as evidence that the Canadian Wheat Board, and Meyers Norris Penny, required producers to swear false Statutory Declarations in order to receive Election Ballots they were entitled to without swearing these Statutory Declarations in the first place.
     
  6. Point 3 of the Exhibits "E", "F" and "G" (the Statutory Declarations) require the producer not to have a 2004-2005 permit book, while clearly Point 2 has the producer's permit book number included in the Statutory Declaration. Were these producers tricked into disqualifying themselves from the 2004 Election process? Will we ever know the answer to this question?
     
  7. I request this evidence be submitted to intervene in support of the application by Arthur Mainil for an injunction against The Canadian Wheat Board and the election coordinator and in support of his application that the election process be repeated.

Sworn before me at Killam, in the Province of Alberta this 17th day of December 2004.
