Help with what? The groups may be good places to network and find like-minded individuals, but in terms of having teeth to legally challenge the BC government over Covid-19, I have a lot of skepticism, not least of which is to do with Rocco Galati's involvement.
CSASPP--another group in BC suing the BC government, which already has court dates set for trial, discovery, and class action certification--often gets a lot of questions related to Rocco, and eventually they had to put up a response in the FAQ:
Are you affiliated with Rocco Galati? If not, why?
We are not affiliated with Mr. Galati. There are many reasons.
Mr. Galati is not licensed to practice law in British Columbia for any extended period of time. He can always be retained in Ontario, and in turn retain counsel in British Columbia. This is not unusual. However, then you are paying for two law firms. Anyone can verify whether a lawyer is licensed to practice law in British Columbia here.
We were advised directly by Mr. Galati himself that the lawyer he wished to retain in British Columbia is Lawrence Wong. Mr. Wong was personally sanctioned in 2010 for his conduct by a Federal Court judge with a fine.
A Federal Court judge noted in his reasons for judgment that some of Mr. Galati's billings were “excessive and unwarranted” in a separate proceeding. The same judge declined to award the full amount sought by Mr. Galati for his legal fees in that constitutional proceeding. The outcome has been discussed by other lawyers.
Mr. Galati is sometimes described by his followers as our nation's "top constitutional law" lawyer, yet there is no such professional designation in Canada, nor in particular in British Columbia. That is not to say that a lawyer cannot have an area of expertise like personal injury, strata, mergers and acquisitions, class actions, and the like. According to Mr. Galati, he studied tax litigation at Osgoode Hall. The Globe and Mail reported Mr. Galati “makes his money from doing tax law, not constitutional cases.”
Mr. Galati filed a COVID-19 related civil proceeding in the Superior Court of Justice in Ontario on 6 July, 2020. To the best of our knowledge, as of 30 October, 2021, none of the twenty-one named defendants have filed replies, despite the plaintiff being at liberty to apply for a default judgment for the majority of that time. In an interview published 2 September, 2020, Mr. Galati claimed he intended to do his best to have an interlocutory mask injunction application heard before the Christmas holidays of 2020. As of 11 June, 2021, we are not aware of any scheduled hearings and no orders appear to have been made.
We receive communications regularly from Mr. Galati's past donors with concerns. We are asked what became of the substantial funds that the community raised for him. We do not have any information, were not involved in raising funds for Mr. Galati, nor did we ever seek to retain him. If you have concerns about his conduct, any member of the general public can submit an electronic complaint to the Ontario Law Society to initiate a formal investigation.
There was also a publication from CanuckLaw saying the notice of claim submitted by Action 4 Canada is "fatally defective and will never make it to trial"
Action4Canada and several others recently filed a Statement of Claim (or SoC) against the B.C. Government, BCPHO Bonnie Henry, Premier John Horgan, Health Minister Adrian Dix, Solicitor General and Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth, and several others. The Plaintiffs are being represented by...
This article concerns a lawsuit from July 6, 2020, which had previously been talked about. This is the challenge from Vaccine Choice Canada and several individuals which was supposed to end all regulations and medical martial law in Canada. Instead of that, this lawsuit is no closer to Trial...
Over the last 20 years or so, Rocco Galati has tried to project himself as a constitutional lawyer, fighting for the interests of Canadians, and humanity as a whole. However, looking more into it, I’ve come to believe that this image and persona are entirely artificial. I think he’s actively...
I have also know people who have spoken with Tanya McGraw privately (the head of Action 4 Canada), and to me she really seemed a few cards short of a deck, judging by her responses to very reasonable criticisms of their approach of naming Justin Trudeau as a defendant and submitting a colossal and non-concise notice with typos in it. People without knowledge and who take up as much space as Action 4 Canada has in the dissident sphere are very much likely being handled deftly to ensure nothing productive happens. They even put up advertisements in regional newspapers threatening small businesses that enforced mask mandates. Like how does that help anyone other than increasing everyone's stress and amplifying chaos?
