“There are few experiences in life as painful and brutal as the failure of a small business. For a small business conceived and nurtured by its owner is like a living, breathing child. Its loss is no less traumatic than losing a loved one.”
― William Manchee
“To whom it may concern”
On Feb 11, 2011 I retained the services of Pascal Gagnon,Ginsberg Gingras regarding a matter of personal Bankruptcy, after filing I was totally ignored by Mr Gagnon, every phone call, email and voice message and even mail I sent, he or his office in Hull did’t respond.
When the matter went before the courts he did not advise me of the out come and again did not answer to my concerns.
I have had attempts on my life, harassed by Police and put on the street not being able to obtain employment, all other local trustee’s I contacted in the Ottawa/Gatineau region refused to assist, I filed a complaint with the Superintendent of Bankruptcy regarding his lack of ethical professionalism with respect to his dislike for myself which was also ignored.
I sent numerous emails, made phone calls and message after message, after 5 years he finally answered a partial of that email and his exact words is included below.
I relocated back to my home province (Newfoundland) on April 8, 2018 due fear for my safety & health after the local Police in Gatineau forcibly removed me from my home and put me in a holding cell for a charge that did not occur on Feb 20, 2018 losing more than half of my belonging never to return there again. A friend bailed me out.
After returning home I contacted a trustee here in St John’s Newfoundland who gave me the information that he should have given me, “the file was adjourned”.
The last time I contacted him regarding the Bankruptcy was Oct 5, 2016, there was no attachments with his response which follows:
Mr Gagnon’s words taken as is from his last email (10/5/16)
“Hello Mr Kinden,
First, let me tell you that both your tone and your threath are not acceptable.
Second, please note that this will be the last email that I will adress to you. I will not answer to any further email or correspondance from you. You will find attached a copy of the OSB answer to your complaint. As stated in that letter you are free to contact another trustee’s office or your legal councel in order to apply to court for your discharge. Regards, Pascal Gagnon”
I will not deny my tone after 5 years of being ignored, during this time (year 1) I was enrolled in A Trucking program in Montreal
The dollar amount or loss I’ve endured is to far reaching than I could ever estimate, I cannot find a Bankruptcy Trustee that will take on the case to finish or clear up his mess, as I am on social assistance and financially cannot pay the required fees and kindness cannot be found with in the Bankruptcy and Insolvency process.
I would like assistance with the issues of such serious nature of the grief Mr Gagnon has created in my life now living in fear for more than 7 years.
I am finally going to share a short version of my story from 2001 to 2018. The short version is 1 1/2 hours long which is the shortest I could make it, talking kinda fast which didn’t help shorten it so as to be understood. I apologize now all the hums and awes, as I did it once without editing, in da raw. Why? because it’s time, so if you can stand to listen to me for an hour and a half then click play
