Spotless Timeline 2003 - 2006
By the end of 2004, we were becoming quite successful with the business. We had a few bumps along the road during the first year, but everything seemed to be starting to come around very well. We were beginning to make a modest profit. We were starting to fit into the niche in the cleaning industry that we were seeking. In early 2005, we felt we needed a more aggressive and targeted approach in the janitorial market. This meant we needed tighter control over the contracts we had, plus taking on bigger projects and hiring more staff.
In March 2005, that opportunity had emerged. Tenders were called for the Bridgewater Provincial Building and Court House as well as the Digby Provincial Building and Court House. We were confident if we could land one of these contracts, they would give us the financial stability our company needed. Both contracts were for three-year terms. This would provide us a more stable income with more room to expand.
We were awarded the contracts for the Bridgewater and Digby Provincial Buildings and Court House; this is when a good part of the troubles began. Several e-mails surfaced, addressed to the provincial Department of Transportation. One was from provincial Attorney Services, (Crown Prosecutor Lloyd Tancock); provincial Correction Services; and provincial Community Services (Robert Deveoue). The e-mails stated that these provincial services weren’t “comfortable” having our Operations Manager, Jeff Fraser, overseeing the Provincial Building contract, which was his primary job.
Although, Jeff had a past record and history with these people, it was some 15 years prior. We had obtained the necessary Bonding & Insurance, but, this did not satisfy the contracts. These were personalities. We went above and beyond our Contract to accommodate these complaints and not cause trouble. We had 13 Employee's at this point, and didn't want to jeopardize their livelihoods.
However, for some unknown reason, these people made it their mission to create upset by lies and innuendo, and destroy everything we had worked for. Rumors and gossip were deliberately spread within the circle of people who were our contracts. In fact, The Bridgewater Provincial Building Manager, Paul Woodworth, deliberately interfered with a Contract we had just started in the next building. We tried to work around this. Our Operations Manager, Jeff, had complained to the head of the provincial Department of Transportation, Hubert Ryan, without result. In fact, what the Department ultimately did was remove us in June of 2005! At this point, we were three Months into the Contract, invested nearly $30,000.00 into the Buildings and haven't received any payment for our services.
We had no idea of the enormity of what
was about to transpire in the upcoming Months. We had lost hundreds of thousands
of dollars over the three-year term of these contracts! We still proceeded
forward in spite of the fact that a greater fo rce
was working against us. Soon after, by the summer of 2005, an onslaught of
events developed. A number of serious banking irregularities started taking
place. Mysterious collection letters and harassing phone calls began. All of a
sudden, and quite inexplicably, the provincial Department of Labour, Revenue
Canada and the Workmen’s Compensation Board started to take an unusually great
interest in our company. There was a constant daily barrage of phone calls,
illegitimate bills, and other harassments. This drew much needed attention away
from the contracts at hand. In early July, 2005, Canada Revenue Agency, did an
audit on our Company. At this point, our Company was in it's third year of
Businesses. They had claimed our Company owed nearly $28.000.00 in GST and
Payroll source deductions. We disputed this, however, they already had placed a
lean on our Company Accounts and deducted the Money's without our prior
knowledge. This had caused some of our cheques to bounce. We made full
restitution for those cheques. We were reimbursed the Money they deducted, which
took nearly three Months for them to return. This lose of capital caused a great
deal of destruction to our Company.

The interference and harassment got progressively worse. Week after week, there was something new. If it wasn't Revenue Canada, it would be the Labor Board or other Agencies. We were at a total loss as to what to do. We still tried to work the company and its contracts, although most of them by now were being mowed down by gossip, rumors and Government Bureaucracy.
The start of the new year of 2006, brought on a whole new wave of events that we were not accustomed to. The Bridgewater Police started showing up at our door. They accused us of deliberately bouncing cheques from the past year. We had explained what was going on, although, this was our Operations Manager, Jeff's past personalities from the Provincial Building Contract, coming back to haunt us. We were so busy with all the various events happening in the past six Months, that somewhere along the line, Spotless Cleaning was signed out its Parent Company's name. It was then registered to our operations Manager, Jeff. The police had already knew this before we did.
In March of 2006, police harassment reached a new level! One night on our way home from Frenchy's in Liverpool after doing a floor job. It was around 2:30 AM and both of them were tired. The RCMP had set up a road block on the way through town. They had turned around to make a detour, hoping to avoid the hassle of going through the checkpoint. Out of the blue, they had the police pull them over in the Sobey’s parking lot! Before long, there were three RCMP cruisers surrounding them. Jeff was arrested, as they claimed they had a warrant for his arrest. Jeff was taken to the Detachment Headquarters and charged for passing more bad cheques in Liverpool from our own company We went from a Successful Business the previous year to becoming wanted criminals the next year. For what reason, we do not know?
At the end of March 2006, the RCMP again pulled Jeff over in Liverpool. They arrested him and impounded the van. This time they claimed he robbed the Liverpool Frenchy’s store for $12. This was one of our cleaning contracts and probably the most absurd claim ever made!
Our Company was still in Business at this point, Late March 2006. The Nova Scotia Labour board, had circulated a letter to every bank in Nova Scotia claiming we owed them a debt. This caused another lean on our Company accounts and caused more Cheques to bounce.
We had it with the Harassment and Gossip and couldn't compete with all the Bureaucracy around us. We decided that we would seek help by making our plea through the political medium. We decided to get behind the NDP Party in the June 2006 Election.Things just got worse from this point. There was no way we could continue to do Business. The TD Bank, with no explanation why, had shut down our accounts. To this day, we still do not know why?
We couldn't get cheques drawn on the Company cashed and had no way to operate without a cash flow. This had forced us out of Business in the summer of 2006.
Many other factions contributed to finishing off what was left of the Company during the year following the downfall of Spotless Cleaning. The biggest of them all was the fabricated evidence against Jeff and Spotless in the Media the following summer of 2007.
As you read through this website, you will see many examples of how the Jehovah controlled janitorial businesses is connected with many of the issues we are facing. Trouble at many of our contracts started as soon as we went into business and continued right up to the 2006 election. After this, Jehovah-controlled companies started taking back many of our contracts through their inside contacts listed below. An example of that is when the Housing Authority went mad right after the election. We have many more examples of this rage toward us. We did nothing to these people, yet their rage and hate toward our company is both undeserved and unprecedented. We want the people to be aware of the threat represented by this insidious movement in Nova Scotia. We became aware of the common thread that connected many of the people involved in activities against our Company. Through sources within the community, we were given a membership list of the local Jehovah’s Witnesses. The document revealed the connection shared by these people. It explained their behavior toward our company.
listed below the names of the people who have worked against us or
caused harm to our company. They are all practicing members of the
Jehovah’s Witnesses. They are singly and collectively responsible
for making it impossible for us to do business here Nova Scotia!
When we researched the “Spotless Janitorial Services” name, we had learned that the Company was defunct and went bankrupt in 1997. The owner of the Company had indicated he had no interest in using the name again. We then took the necessary steps to acquire the name for our Company. The owner naturally assumed we were practicing members of the Jehovah Witnesses. Soon after we started using the name “Spotless Cleaning” and doing business again, the Jehovah Witnesses realized we were not affiliated with there organization, and therefore, the name "Spotless" should not of been released to us as non-members. We were told by members of their organization, the elders took offence to "outsiders" using or purchasing Company names that were owned by their members.
The three of us as shareholders of the company are gay people. Our community where we have lived in for many years in peace has never had an issue with this. However, as we soon learned, the Jehovah Witnesses are very strongly opposed to homosexuality, In fact, they outlaw it in their literature.
Freedom of speech is the concept of being able to speak freely without censorship. The right to freedom of speech is guaranteed under international law through numerous human rights instruments, notably under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights, although implementation remains lacking in many countries. The synonymous term freedom of expression is sometimes preferred, since the right is not confined to verbal speech but is understood to protect any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used.
