A Message from Tony Kaluzny re: Patent Project

Attached is the Judgement from the Supreme Court of Canada March 7th 2024 on Upper Canada Land Titles and Patent Research Initiative v. Regional Municipality of Niagara (a.k.a Niagara Region), SCC 40865. Leave to appeal was not Granted.

I would like to thank all persons and groups that supported this action, for their contributions, prayers and kind words of support.  As I have mentioned before, nothing has really been resolved in this matter.  There are 5 statutes that support our action that the courts have not addressed and can be used in defence of any fines or charges imposed upon a property owner.  I have attached our application that summarizes the position presented to the court and how it was explained to the court.   Also below I have captured the 5 statutes so that they may be reviewed by anyone that is interested.

My sincere appreciation to Joan Olech and Erika Furney, both have worked with me on this action for over 10 years.  I would not have been able to get to this end or any end without their support and endless hours of research and discussion and kind humour towards this action.

Thank you all for your support and faith in this challenge.  In conversation with Joan Olech, we will be submitting a complaint to the Governor General of Canada and to His Majesty King Charles, Buckingham Place that the courts have refused to acknowledge the will and intent of his predecessors.
