Some background on the Dr. Kuntz Story and British Columbia Chief Justice Chris Hinkson

Chief Justice Hinkson 
Readers are encouraged to read the blog post made on September 10, 2010 to get the big picture of what happened in the case of Dr. Kuntz and why he was destroyed. 

What follows is a reprint of email correspondence from Dr. Kuntz to his friend "Derek" that puts the present Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of British Columbia squarely in the middle of some very deep corruption in British Columbia that may explain why Chris Hinkson was appointed to his exalted position. (Photos are added)

Readers must understand that the CMPA referred to by Dr. Kuntz is formally known as the Canadian  Medical Protective Association and consists of a number of large Canadian law firms that regularly represent doctors in medical malpractice cases. In British Columbia, the key CMPA law firm is Harper Grey Easton.

I am still discovering judicial fraud.  For example, a valid B.C. Court of Appeal hearing requires three Court of Appeal judges.   Harvey Grey told me not to attend my appeal of the Cohen judgment in Coughlin v. Kuntz  "just in case we lose".  I disobeyed his orders not to attend and to his dismay I appeared in Court.  I did not know Harvey Grey's partner was Chris Hinkson and I did not know that the biased judge on the bench was Justice Ted Hinkson, a former CMPA  Guild Yule lawyer whose son Chris Hinkson was also a former CMPA Guild Yule lawyer was now Harvey Grey's partner at Harper Grey Easton and Company which held the CMPA contract to defend all CMPA-insured doctors (including myself) in B.C..   Harvey Grey had earlier told me he would "vindicate" me by using the "new evidence"  of prior usage of methyl methacrylate and he had lied to me - he did not enter a single published paper nor did he argue the evidence that would vindicate me.  Justice Ted Hinkson and the CMPA and Harvey Grey had a vested economic interest in upholding the Cohen judgment against me because it would ensure more litigation would continue based of the experimental surgery scientific fraud of the Cohen judgment which Harvey Grey was supposed to correct.  In retrospect Ted Hinkson was enriching his son Chris Hinkson who was already a financial partner with Harvey Grey.  Ted Hinkson yelled out from the bench at Harvey Grey who hung his head in mock shame  as Hinkson defamed me by yelling " Your client is knife happy!".    Over a quarter of a century later I now realize that this was a one judge Kangaroo Court - a B.C. Court of Appeal required three judges and there was only one judge present and his son was Harvey Grey's partner.  Justice Ted Hinkson sat on the bench alone to enrich the Hinkson family  and he was working in collusion with Harvey Grey in the absence of the two other required Court of Appeal judges to uphold the Cohen judgment that would enrich both Harvey Grey and his partner Chris Hinkson and their mutual CMPA benefactors by perpetuating the scientific fraud the Methyl Methacrylate usage for disc replacement was "experimental surgery".   

The Hinkson BCCA Court of Appeal judgment was "void ab initio", firstly because Justice Ted Hinkson was in conflict judging a case which would enrich Harvey Grey and Ted Hinkson's son Chris Hinkson, and secondly because the Court did not have a quorum which required a three judge bench. That means the BCCA judgment was invalid and it requires a new trial and that Justice Ted Hinkson and Harvey Grey should both face criminal charges for fixing cases. Harvey Grey was a bencher of the Law Society and knew that I was entitled to a three judge bench and that I did not receive a fair hearing under S.11(d) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. 

Similarly, the Southin judgment in De Sousa v. Kuntz and Kitimat General Hospital was "void ab initio" because the Kitimat General Hospital was filed and defended by lawyers at Bull Housser Tupper who were Mary Southin's partners at BHT and she was still a lawyer at BHT when the Hospital was being defended by her partner Chris Grauer at BHT.  Southin and Grauer were acting in collusion and she sat in conflict to enrich her BHT partners and she had a duty to recuse herself when she stalked me from the bench.  That means the Southin judgment was void ab initio.

That means that both the De Sousa case must be overturned by the Parliament and the Coughlin case must be overturned by the Parliament.

The College erasure must also be overturned by the Parliament because the College Council sat in conflict in judgment of their co-defendent Kuntz and adverse in economic interest in a case valued at $300 million because the College was a covert defendant with myself in the secret undisclosed second Writ filed as the  Rita Linnea Harriet Wilson et al Class Action v. Dr. Kuntz, College of Physicians and Surgeons, Kitimat General Hospital and Wrinch Memorial Hospital .  This was a violation of S.11(d) of the Charter which does not allow one defendant to sit in judgment of another defendant because the Charter requires a fair hearing and the College had a vested interest in defaming and discrediting the witness against themselves in 1988 in advance of the Class Action which was still outstanding.

I think we should send John Carten a copy of this recent material on the judicial scam of Ted Hinkson who was working with Harvey Grey to enrich his son Chris Hinkson who was Harvey Grey's partner by denying me a fair B.C. Court of Appeal hearing when I appealed the Cohen judgment in Coughlin v. Kuntz.  The BCCA hearing was bogus because it was supposed to be a Court of Appeal hearing and there was only one biased judge present - Ted Hinkson - and a B.C. Court of Appeal is supposed to sit three BCCA judges on the bench.   That shows that Justice Ted Hinkson and Harvey Grey were in cahoots to obstruct justice and deny me my S.11(d) Charter right to a fair hearing at the B.C. Court of Appeal.   I was entitltled to a fair Appeal hearing before three judges.  Where were they?   Ted Hinkson was the father of Chris Hinkson who was the covert partner of Harvey Grey since 1978 and both Harvey Grey and his partner Chris Hinkson stood to profit if Ted Hinkson obstructed justice by proceeding without a quorum of three BCCA judges when he upheld the Cohen judgment to ensure that the precedent would stand and thereby invite a large number of cases against me based on the Cohen judgment, all of which would enrich Harvey Grey and the judge's son Ted Hinkson who were jointly partnered to profit from the theft of CMPA funds so long as more cases for experimental surgery continued to be filed against me which required Ted Hinkson to uphold the precedent Cohen judgment.  That was why I was denied a three judge B.C. Court of Appeal hearing.    The federal parliament has a duty to exercise the Charter S.33 power to overrule the judge Ted Hinkson on grounds that he knowingly held a bogus BCCA hearing without a quorum so as to uphold the Cohen judgment and deny me a fair hearing before a three man BCCA bench and thereby enrich his son Chris Hinkson who was Harvey Grey's covert partner at Harper Grey Easton and Company which held the CMPA contract to defend doctors in B.C.

Justice Ted Hinkson – changed the names of BCCA judges who heard the Napoli and Coughlin Appeals.

The information below cannot be correct because Dr. J.D. Kuntz was in the Courtroom at the Appeal of the Cohen judgment in Coughlin v. Kuntz  and there was only one judge present for the entire appeal and it was BCCA Justice Ted Hinkson.   There was no other judge present in the courtroom other than the biased Justice Ted Hinkson.  There was absolutely no presence of Justice Taggart and Gibb in the appeal of the Cohen judgment in Coughlin v. Kuntz!

If the information recorded below by JDK was taken off the published BCCA documents of the appeal, than those false records of the  Kuntz Appeal of the Cohen judgment in the Coughlin v. Kuntz  Appeal  were clearly altered by the tainted Justice Ted Hinkson who was the only judge present at the Appeal and the only one capable of tampering with the published court documents containing that fraudulent information that stated  Taggart and Gibb were present when they were never there.  That means that Justice Hinkson was conducting a fraudulent court of appeal session as the sole judge on a three man bench which did not exist and that makes his deceitful publication of the outcome of a phony BCCA hearing nothing less that void ab ignitio because it occurred in the absence of a quorum of three judges. 

The following three  paragraphs were most likely copied by Kuntz from the published BCCA  records that named the judges who were were supposed to have judged the Coughlin Appeal and the De Sousa Appeal.   Since Dr. Kuntz disobeyed Harvey Grey’s instructions not to attend and because he did attend the entire appeal,  Dr. Kuntz knew that Ted Hinkson was the only judge on the BCCA bench hearing his Appeal.   That means Ted Hinkson altered the records.

It should also be noted that this was the second time that Ted Hinkson altered published records of BCCA trials in which he was involved.   Ted Hinkson also altered the records of the Napoli V. WCB Appeal where the court records show his involvement as a judge at the trial whereas the published record shows that Hinkson’s name was replaced by MacDonald so as to hide Ted Hinkson’s involvement.

The following three paragraphs were taken from the document #10 Ted Hinkson authored by Dr. Kuntz:

On December 19, 1989, Justices Hinkson, Taggart and Gibbs in the

B.C. Court of Appeal dismissed Dr. Kuntz’s appeal of the Cohen

judgment in WCB-funded Coughlin v. Kuntz case [CA008375].

Dec. 19, 1989 B.C. Court of Appeal

judgment of Justices Hinkson, Taggart and Gibb who dismissed Dr.

Kuntz’s appeal of the Cohen judgment in the WCB-funded Coughlin

v. Kuntz case [CA008375]].

On March 9, 1988, Justices Hinkson, Craig, Wallace of the B.C. Supreme Court

upheld the De Sousa v. Kuntz judgment of Justice Southin [CA009275].

The modus operandi of Harper Grey Easton and Company was to withhold evidence that would undermine the defense of their clients to instigate more litigation which would be directed to their law firm by CMPA by right of their monopoly on the defense of medical malpractice litigation of doctors insured by CMPA in British Columbia.  HGE and company was in the business of expanding litigation against doctors that they would get to enrich themselves from defending while dipping into the CMPA coffers. 


[Editors Note: When  John Carten and Derek met with a CBC reporter about this story and showed the CBC reporter the documents that proved the whole class action case against Dr. Kuntz was a massive fraud because the case was dismissed without ever dealing with the claims of 1400 patients that Dr. Kuntz was alleged to have harmed with experimental surgery the CBC reporter got scared and said the case was too big for her to report.]
[Editors Note: If the patients were really hurt by the surgery done by Dr. Kuntz they would not have dropped their lawsuit and the case would have proceeded to court and there would have been a huge award in damages. One of the frailties of human beings that scammers, deceivers, liars and dirty lawyers take advantage of is that the bigger the lie, the more readily people will believe it.]

How Canada's Top Law Firms Used A Fraudulent Lawsuit To Destroy A Great Doctor and Line Their Pockets

In the history of mankind, great men, men of genius, men of great intelligence, men of great ability and great talent have often been attacked by lesser souls, by the incompetent, by the jealous, by the stupid, by the craven and the greedy  who take more satisfaction in the destruction of their superiors than in their own success.

Dr. John David Kuntz
When Dr. John David Kuntz (shown in photo on left) moved to British Columbia to take up the practice of medicine, after University of Toronto, the local College of Physicians and Surgeons recommended that he set up shop in his speciality, orthopaedic surgery, in Kitimat, a remote small community, population 8,000, in north western British Columbia.

The Vancouver market was already crowded with specialists who did not want more competition and, for Dr.Kuntz, who grew up in the remote northwestern Ontario community of Red Lake, the prospect of spending his working life, near or in "the bush", as Canadians call their wilderness, was not at all unattractive.
graduation from the

Soon after he arrived in Kitimat, Dr. Kuntz came face to face with the grim reality of the industrial resource extraction economy of rural British Columbia in the form of crippled and injured young and middle aged men who had suffered spinal injuries while working. 

Being a man of genius and talent, Dr. Kuntz quickly realized that what was keeping these otherwise healthy men from returning to an active life was the fact that the disks between the vertebrae in their backs had ruptured or collapsed and, at the time, there was nothing that surgery could do for them except a spinal fusion that left them relatively crippled.  Dr. Kuntz put his mind to the problem and, using his native genius and god-given talents invented "spinal disk replacement surgery" at his clinic in Kitimat.

Soon afterwards, Dr. Kuntz was the leading orthopaedic surgeon in British Columbia, doing approximately 50 % of all of the spinal surgery in British Columbia from his medical practice in Kitimat.   

The success of Dr. Kuntz caused problems for two entrenched groups.

1.  The other orthopaedic surgeons in British Columbia, especially in Vancouver, who saw their income levels dropping and patient base dwindling because of the genius in Kitimat.

2.  The Workers Compensation system in British Columbia that was facing angry demands for a return of assessments from industrial employers whose workers had returned to work.  The Workers Compensation system  in British Columbia had become an insurance racket where employers of injured workers were fined with heavy up front assessments that were parsimoniously paid to injured workers as paltry monthly benefits.  The incoming lump funds generated a huge cash reserve that supported a well paid, nepotistic, bureaucracy while injured workers and their families struggled to survive on minimum monthly support cheques.

Literally, Dr. Kuntz made the lame walk.  He was a modern miracle worker, like Jesus, and, like Jesus, Dr. Kuntz was crucified by the lawyers and the judges - the Sanhedrin - not because he healed on the Sabbath but because he healed where others could not.

The adversaries of Dr. Kuntz consulted their lawyers, in Vancouver, and hatched a devious and diabolical plan to destroy Dr. Kuntz by using the College of Physicians and Surgeons to stop his work on the grounds it was "experimental medicine" and by launching a "fraudulent" class action lawsuit against him on behalf of 1,900 patients he had allegedly injured by his experimental surgery.

The same group of lawyers also launched a similar fraudulent class action lawsuit against the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia, the professional organization that governs the practice of medicine in British Columba.  This was a terrorist tactic intended to frighten the College into complete submission.  

The plan worked. 

The medical profession, frightened by the prospect of insurance claims in the hundreds of millions of dollars, payable to some fictictious 1,900 patients, moved quickly to strip Dr. Kuntz of his licence to practice medicine notwithstanding the fact that Dr. Kuntz never treated 1,900 patients and that all, excepting a very few, patients, were living, very contentedly, with the surgery he had performed and many of his former patients signed a petition in support of Dr. Kuntz to help him keep his licence.  There were two such petitions one with 5,000 signatures and another with 8,000 signatures.

When the insiders with the Vancouver legal establishment realized the success of their bold and diabolical plan against Dr. Kuntz they then turned their sights on an ever greater fraud against the public treasury by persuading a local politicial party, to promise, as part of their electoral platform, that their government would pay the medical insurance fees of the doctors and, with this bold statement, the party won the support of the medical profession in British Columbia that was now saved from the prospect of huge medical insurance fees to cover the fraudulent claims against Dr. Kuntz and the support of a number of Canada's leading law firms that made up the Canadian Medical Protective Association, CMPA, and who were set to benefit from the fraud based premiums to by collected from the unsuspecting taxpayers.

At this point, we have to explain to the reader that, in Canada, medical doctors do not pay insurance premiums for malpractice to a properly organized insurance company.  Instead, they make regular  payments to the CMPA, that describes itself as a "not-for-profit, mutual defence organization for physicians, by physicians" and is, essentially, an association made up of several large Canadian law firms that decide which claims to pay and which ones to resist.   

The lawyers went laughing all the way to the bank, Dr. Kuntz was destroyed and reduced to poverty.

Every lawyer Dr. Kuntz hired to resist the fraud against him was disbarred, a series of crooked judges were inserted into every application he made to court to try to get a fair hearing.  Because he was a member of the College, Dr. Kuntz was not permitted to defend the class action lawsuit which was handled on his behalf by the lawyers who were part of the conspiracy.

Eventually, the fraudulent class action lawsuit against Dr. Kuntz and the College were quietly dropped because there never were 1,900 injured patients and because the lawsuits very massive frauds intended to enrich a few greedy lawyers in a couple of prominent law firms in Vancouver.

How could this happen, you ask, in a democracy, like Canada, that boasts a competent, honest, justice system? 

Simple, the judges and lawyers in Canada are appointed by politicians and knowing that there is no independent process to investigate and discipline judicial corruption the lawyers correctly reckoned they could get away with their dirty conspiracy to deny Dr. Kuntz the basic right to cross examine and challenge his accusers and thereby loot many millions of dollars from the public. 

And, why did they do this, you ask? 

Simple, because the lawyers and judges were all connected, in a multitude of ways, to the big law firms that benefited from the huge revenues that were now pouring into the CMPA as a result of the fraudulent lawsuits they initiated.

And, how do we know the lawsuits were fraudulent?

Simple, because both lawsuits were dismissed by a Consent Order agreed to by the lawyers and the 1900 so-called victims of experimental surgery disappeared and never complained again.

Do you get it?  There never were 1900 injured patients. The claim was a fraud.  Sure, maybe one or two patients had complications form surgery.  That is to be expected. But, the 1900 figure was a lie.
It was a great lie, deliberately inflated, massively inflated, to justify a greater robbery and bamboozle the public ands it worked. When the money was paid out, the patients disappeared. They went away. They never squawked, they never complained, they never made a peep because THEY DID NOT EXIST.
