Well, it’s been busy around Hazzard County these past couple of days, and it is safe to say that the die-hard supporters of the provincial Progressive Conservative party are getting a bit curious, as they are now coming to us in droves for a little truth about their prospective leader, Barrie MP Patrick Brown.
From Smith Falls, the stomping grounds of Tory wild-card Randy Hillier who just ran for interim leader, all the way out to Burlington, Barrie, St. Catherine’s, Toronto, and a whole lot of Conservative-won ridings we rarely ever hear about, the Tory faithful are asking why it is that the man who Patrick Brown and his friends at Digital Video Productions have been calling a con-man and an extortionist has for years been undertaking of his own free will a plethora of charitable and altruistic causes that serve no purpose other than to help the community.
It is becoming clear now that the dots are connecting, and the question being asked is if Patrick Brown, Mark Lang, Martin Convery, and their two-times court labelled libelist (Ruling 1) (Ruling 2) Darren Roskam have been lying about that for almost three years, what else are they hiding and deceiving us all about?
Could it be - heaven forfend - that if they are lying so transparently about our producer that perhaps we are telling the truth and it is our “honourable” Member of Parliament and the Harper Government funded buddies who he helped to evade being sued for breach of contract who are now, and have always been deceiving the tax payers of Canada, the criminal justice system, and whoever else they could manipulate to attain their goals?
Sadly for them our producer has demonstrated that he does not yield to intimidation, and never will. So Patrick Brown had better give up any dreams of becoming Premiere of Ontario, because his mistakes of the past, that he has refused to rectify or justify by challenging our allegations, are coming back to haunt him.
We hope Patrick's friends at DVP are worth the price he is now paying and the humiliation he is now having to bear trying to explain away his run and hide tactics to his friends and political allies.

We are happy to announce that as of today, just one month after the election that saw Rod Jackson ousted by the previously unknown Ann Hoggarth, our video, located on YouTube at http://youtu.be/teJk3sc-Uhc has been viewed by no less than 400 concerned citizens.
People like Rod Jackson and his friend Patrick Brown can wallow in denial of the power of social media and the ability of citizens to make changes in the local power structure, but that was not the case just 30 days ago.
Let's see what effect we can have over the next few months.
July 12, 2014
No matter what key words you use in reference to Barrie’s Conservative MP, the ongoing story of Hazzard County comes up on page one of every search engine from Google to Bing - and even Dogpile ;-) This is perhaps no better demonstrated than by the fact that yesterday, while looking for a website called www.whypatrickbrown.ca, an enquiring mind found and visited Hazzard County.
Arrogance such as that demonstrated by the Hazzard County inner circle is ultimately a self-destructive character flaw; such has been learned by dictators and despots ranging from Adolf Hitler to Saddam Hussein. Nonetheless, Patrick Brown persists in living in his ivory tower of privilege, comfortable in his decision to ignore our four written requests for an interview, and apparently convinced that we will just go away.
That attitude will likely change over the next few months as 5 Points – the Barrie Magazine is launched, and we begin to promote our publication and specific stories through inexpensive social media advertising; through which we can reach 10,000 people for as little as $50.00, as we did when releasing the Rod Jackson video.
That action caused a stir within the ranks of the local Conservatives who wrote saying they were “ordering” Facebook to shut us down (how did that work out for you tough guy) and that they would sue us if we did not take it down (still waiting ;-). The funny thing is that all those people disappeared the day after Rod Jackson was defeated, even going so far as to say he was not their candidate.
After five years of reporting this story, half of which were silenced by what the court has confirmed was unlawful subjugation by the Barrie Police Services, you would think Patrick Brown would get the message that we are not going away, but apparently not.
We will not be intimidated or silenced through any abuse of authority, no matter what Patrick Brown and his minions throw at us, and if Patrick Brown wants us to be silent he can get in front of our camera and face our evidence; which he knows will prove that that Patrick Brown abused his authority to help his friends at Digital Video Productions by calling on specific officers of the Barrie Police Services to arrest and try to intimidate our producer who they had cheated. Otherwise, this story is going to hang over his head for the rest of his political and professional life.
Patrick Brown had better get his head out of his you-know-what as clearly the citizenry of Ontario are interested in knowing why he is evading this story; so much so that even those searching for his own self-promotion materials are finding our story instead. More importantly, they are reading what we have to say.
This most recent likely Tory supporter stayed on our website and read our materials for at least ten minutes, and as any website designer will tell you, only those who are interested stay longer than a few seconds.
The average visit to the Hazzard County website is more than nine minutes, and in more cases than not a visit from a specific town or city is followed by other visits from that region as the person who found our story spreads the word to his colleagues, family, and friends.
The province of Ontario is not small town Barrie where Patrick Brown can get away with doing whatever he wants. If he is ever Premiere (God help us) Patrick Brown will be accountable to the people and subject to real media scrutiny.
Here Patrick Brown can call on the Barrie Police Services for a little subjugation (or at least he could until we exposed it) but out there in the big leagues he will have to answer questions and will not be able to hide behind the pots and pans evading the truth and evidence of his own wrongdoing.
Let's see if Patrick Brown can step out from behind the skirts of his assistant, and the propaganda published by his buddy Darren Roskam, and put on the big boy pants long enough to man up and face the evidence we have against him.
July 11, 2014
We received a visit today from the Toronto Star. It was not their first visit, and is not likely to be their last, but it was significant in that the reporter who came today stayed for more than twenty minutes, and we think they downloaded the entire contents and every file on our website.
We could be wrong about the download, but our bandwidth suddenly jumped while they were online, which is usually an indication that a whole lot of data was downloaded at one time.
The Toronto Star and any other media services are welcome to read or download whatever they want from our website, and our producer is very happy to chat with any interested reporter about his experience with Hazzard County justice.
We have also recently been visited by several divisions of the CBC and at least 25 times by the CTV Television Network; not to mention several other newspapers based in Toronto, Ottawa, Burlington, London, and Hamilton. It is handy having on staff a former computer forensics specialist, like those used by law enforcement, security, and private investigations, who can identify our visitors with such accuracy.
We think it is now safe to say that, due to our three year-long demonstration of tenacity and the evidence presented, those who once believed this to be a grudge site are now seeing the truth, and that they are now understanding based on the evidence that our producer, who does so much to help others in our community, is far from the blackmailer or extortionist depicted by those we are accusing of having abused the authority of our criminal justice system for personal profit or political favour.
We do not think this story is so hard to understand. Two businessmen who had just received nearly $27,000.00 from the Harper Government through Patrick Brown breached a contract; a situation that would have been embarrassing for the Conservatives if it hit mainstream media. So Patrick, a former City Councillor, made a call to a buddy in the Barrie Police with a request that he lean on our producer to shut him up.
The plan ultimately backfired, as our producer knew his right and fought the charges, and the Crown Attorney had to abandon 80% of the ludicrous and unsupportable allegations before the court tossed the rest in the trash like yesterday’s fish because the unsupportable allegations were nothing but a blatant and transparent violation of the intended victim’s rights to Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press; both Fundamental Freedoms under the Charter of Right and Freedoms.
We have publicly called upon Chief Greenwood and the City Council of Barrie to review our producer’s wrongful and illegal arrest and incarceration but our pleas have been ignored.
As such, we have no choice but to continue embarrassing the fine city of Barrie by telling this story and building on it with evidence of other similar abuses of authority, similar wrongful arrests, and examples of assaults and other violations of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms that were committed against Barrie citizens by a police department that is supposed to serve and protect ALL tax payers of our rapidly growing community, and not just a select few.
We welcome the Toronto Star and all other media to review our story and examine our evidence. It is Patrick Brown, the potential leader of our province’s Conservative party, and his public associate Mark Lang (who Patrick now claims he doesn't know) who ran and hid from our evidence, and who refused to support their claims or repeat their allegations publicly.
We are welcoming scrutiny while the “Honourable” MP and the “honest” and “ethical” government supported business operators run and hide. Who do you think is telling the truth? Is there any wonder why Patrick Brown's latest grasp for the brass ring of power is now attracting so much media attention?
The provincial Conservatives droned on ad nauseum about how the Liberals under McGuinty were untrustworthy; so what are the voters of Ontario going to think when they learn that Patrick Brown has been accused publicly for three years of abusing his authority to railroad an innocent citizen through the criminal justice system for no reason other than to protect his own reputation, but has done NOTHING to defend against the claims but run and hide when confronted with the evidence, and publishing ridiculous, unsupported propaganda through the dubious 'talents' of a two-times court labelled libelist and vexatious litigant who was removed from the YMCA for 'acting inappropriately in a children's area'?
Journalists and media, there is your story. You might not have believed us a couple of years ago, but now that you have a better understanding of who our producer is and what evidence we have to support our claims we know you are now getting the message.
We invite you to return to Hazzard County any time.
July 11, 2014
We received a phone call earlier today from a retired city worker who has concerns about safety on the Barrie Transit system. We told him we would be happy to review his information, and do some research, and consider the story for publishing when we launch 5 Points – the Barrie Magazine later this year https://www.facebook.com/FivePointsMedia - http://www.5pointsmedia.ca .
He then went on to comment that he was not aware of this website or the story until the Rod Jackson video was released via social media ( http://youtu.be/teJk3sc-Uhc ) , and now he has read the ENTIRE Hazzard County website, and was sufficiently intrigued that he sent a “must read” link to dozens of local residents. He also liked our Facebook page, ( https://www.facebook.com/pages/Hazzard-County-Barrie-Ontario/462199103846680 ) and set his Facebook to automatically share our updates with what he described as hundreds of Facebook friends. We are already seeing results from his efforts.
Tom’s main comment about our story was simply; he would have normally considered hazzardcounty.ca to be a gripe site and moved on, except that our producer is NOT hiding who he is, which he said showed great integrity, and clearly Patrick Brown and Mark Lang are running and hiding from what they did. He also didn’t have many nice things to say about Darren Roskam, who he said he knew quite well but not by choice.
This voter saw the determination of our tenacity, and the truth of our evidence and links, and he is setting fire to more of the grass roots kindling to help us spread the truth.
When Barrie Conservative MP Patrick Brown called for a little subjugation of our producer’s rights Detective Constables Scott Aldridge and Tammy Watson of the Barrie Police Services knew they could do pretty much whatever they wanted to help the Conservative politician’s friends at Digital Video Productions.
Our producer was at that time a recently divorced man living in a rented apartment and as such he was limited in what he could do to expose the abuse of authority. Since then John has worked hard to rebuild his life and he now owns a provincially registered media company that is producing documentaries and broadcast commercials, medical videos, promotional corporate work, and he is undertaking projects for charity of various stripes.
Now the man who Aldridge and Watson attempted but failed to intimidate has unrestricted access to broadcast video production equipment, and many contacts in local and Toronto media, and also a staff who are working with him to launch 5 Points Media and 5 Points – the Barrie Magazine; through which we will be reporting the truth behind what is truly happening in Barrie. John's commercial business has just shy of 1,000 followers on Facebook and he also has a very well-known building that is passed daily by 20,000 Barrie motorists and is instantly recognizable by most Barrie residents.
What is really funny is that the oh-so-important (just ask him) wannabe media mogul Darren Roskam is still trying to convince people that our producer is hiding who he is, when links to John's identity are all over this website. Either John is terrible at hide and seek or Darren Roskam is just a self-discrediting idiot; and we know which option gets our vote ;-)
John has been very busy ever since Patrick Brown apparently made that phone call seeking a little help for his friends from certain special interest officers of the Barrie Police Services, and he is not one to sit and wait to see what happens.
We are ready for next year’s federal election, just like we were prepared for the most recent provincial vote, when incumbent Rod Jackson was defeated by the previously unknown Ann Hoggarth.
We hope Patrick Brown is ready for us.
July 10, 2014
We don’t claim to know why it’s happening, but we are enjoying the sudden increase in popularity; as during the past 24 hours Hazzard County has become more popular than pizza during the Superbowl. We were well into the double digits for unique visitors by 8:00am this morning; and they were sticking around and inviting their friends.
It could be because of the effect our video had on the most recent provincial election, through which we showed Barrie Conservative MPP Rod Jackson running and evading questions when we asked him if he had hired Darren Roskam to manufacture hate and bigotry through gay bashing. It could also be because Patrick Brown has been given the nod to run as leader of the Provincial Conservatives, and he is even more closely associated through this story with Barrie’s most loathsome libelist and court ruled vexatious litigant.
What we do know is that traffic to Hazzard County has multiplied overnight, like a one lane horse path turning into a four lane highway. If this keeps up we’ll need a diner and gas bar at the off ramp.;-)
The visits today have been from media from across Ontario, and both provincial and federal government offices, and John and Jane Q. Public; with hits coming in from homes, businesses, government offices, various media outlets, and universities located in cities such as Kitchener, Oshawa, Barrie, Ottawa, Hamilton, Midland, Sarnia, Kapuskasing, Etobicoke, Toronto, Cambridge, North York, and various others.
Those visitors have also been cross linking to our commercial website, where they are seeing how our producer contributes more in so many ways to our community than most small to medium sized business owners.
These facts fly in the face of the image that has been created by those who serve Patrick Brown, Mark Lang, and Martin Convery; such as their muckraker Darren Roskam, who has claimed without providing ANY evidence that the well respected philanthropist is some kind of dark and sinister con-artist and extortionist who they have accused of everything from child abuse, to fraud, to using and abusing women, and even paedophilia.
Now those following this story know that TWO separate courts of law have dismissed those self-serving and hypocritical allegations made against our producer, and that those decisions were based solely on the evidence that was made available by both sides. One court decision could be wrong, but two?
Most people have come to see that the claims made by Darren Roskam about our producer and others are frankly absurd rantings of a disturbed individual who will say ANYTHING about ANYBODY, especially if somebody is willing to pay him to say it. The simple fact is that if ANYBODY had done 5% of the “crimes” Roskam claimed were committed by our producer he would be in jail, and certainly not free to tell his story if they could not back it up with hard evidence.
Truth and tenacity has turned more than a few people away from the lies being told by those whom we are exposing. It is also not lost on most people that while our producer has posted links to his identity and resume on every page of this story, none of those who abused the authority of the Barrie Police Services and the Crown Attorney of Simcoe County in an attempt to silence him have EVER had the courage to stand up and make their allegations publicly or face the evidence against them.
Who would you believe; those standing behind their story or those running away and refusing to back up their claims?

It seems word is spreading throughout our Houses of Parliament, as once again our story has been visited by somebody using the parl.gc.ca network, and this time it is a different IP address; meaning a different person or computer.
This "official" visitor stayed a little longer than 15 minutes, and their entire attention was on Patrick Brown. Click here for details.
Maybe his Conservative buddies are wondering why Patrick Brown has taken NO action in nearly three years to silence this story, other than to apparently abuse the authority of the Barrie Police Services, and why he instead hid behind his assistant and then amongst the pots and pans when faced with our camera and evidence.
July 7, 2014
All of our websites, those being for our producer's commercial business, the new 5 Points Media website, and Hazzard County have all been visited repeatedly during the past few days by a seriously interested party from London, Ontario.
Well, we did some really basic research on who might be interested in our story in a town three hours and 300 km away, and learned that in addition to being a Liberal riding, London is home to the Honourable Deborah Matthews, MPP for London North Centre, who in addition to being the Minister Responsible for the Poverty Reduction Strategy is also President of the Treasury Board of the Ontario Liberal Party and our Deputy Premier.
We can only guess as to what dirt she is digging up; most likely about Ontario Conservative Leader wannabe Patrick Brown.
To the Liberals, New Democrats, Greens, and whoever else can use it, we have much more on Patrick Brown than has so far been published here, and we would be happy to share; including some very seriously embarrassing video that we have not yet posted as part of this story, but intend to do so soon.
All you have to do is ask ;-)

Patrick Brown under scrutiny
Somebody in Brantford Ontario took up a homestead in Hazzard County yesterday, viewing 29 pages of our story in little more than 24 hours. Then they brought some friends. Details are available here.
The unidentified visitor, who is most likely a journalist or a competitor for the seat of Ontario PC leader, spent only a minute or so on some pages, and on others they hung around for more than half an hour. He or she then came back repeatedly, as if confirming their facts before reporting their findings.
The videos were, not surprisingly, the most popular pages, as who can deny Patrick Brown’s accountability when he is seen and heard threatening to put a citizen in jail for asking questions at a public event, or when he hid behind the skirts of his assistant and then the pots and pans in a kitchen to avoid us? The full video of that embarrassing moment will be coming out very soon.
Yeah, Patrick Brown has real potential as the leader of the Ontario Conservatives ;-)
July 4, 2014
Eyes at Parliament Hill are watching . . . again
Well, it could be Patrick Brown himself, as he does occasionally go to work in Ottawa between hockey holidays, or it could be somebody else from Harper’s Conservatives or another party keeping up to date on what is going on with our story, but today we had a visitor from parl.gc.ca, which is the server for the House of Commons in Ottawa; and you don’t just log onto that network’s Wi-Fi while taking the tour.
The visitor went straight to Patrick Brown’s page where he/she parked themselves for a good ten minutes, which would suggest they are new to the story as even Patrick Brown’s page isn’t that long.
So, one must question why the visit, unless it was because Barrie’s MP is seriously considering running for the provincial Conservative leadership, and he wanted one of his buddies to take a look to assess the potential damage.
It doesn’t really matter what was decided as our story is currently so out of date as to be almost irrelevant. Soon that will change however, and all of our new materials will flood forth for public consumption, as fuelled by a social media campaign the likes of which Barrie politics has never seen.
Just ask Rod Jackson how effective our methods of distributing the truth can be, and that was not even a drop in the bucket compared to what is coming with regards to Patrick Brown.
For more details on the log click here.

It seems that Patrick Brown might have a fair amount to worry about if he is considering running for the leadership of Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives, as according to the data from our visitor analysis tools he is the belle of the ball in Hazzard County.
Maybe Barrie's golden boy of Conservatism should have put a little more thought into his answer when Mark Lang and Martin Convery called on their good old buddy for a little assistance in swaying the professional detachment of certain detectives of the Barrie Police Services. More here.
July 3, 2014
It comes as little surprise to us that there is sudden interest from across Ontario regarding Patrick Brown, as he is being considered for the leadership of the provincial Conservative party, which so soundly had its bragging and boasting called to task during the most recent election; locally by the decline and fall of Rod Jackson who just 24 hours prior to the release of our exposé video was sending out invites to his “victory” party.
We are guessing the son of Jackson Toyota now understands that we are all judged by the company we keep, and perhaps he and his kind should not belittle the power of effective social media.
So far hits have come in from London, Chatham, Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph, various regions of Toronto, Sudbury, all areas around Barrie, etc. and most recently, Ottawa.
We frankly don’t have time to scrutinize all of those visitors, but today’s reader from our nation’s capital caught our attention, as ALL he/she seemed to care about was Patrick Brown, his association with Darren Roskam, and how the young Conservative has repeatedly threatened those who stand against him, or who have had the nerve and audacity to ask him questions he does not want to answer.
See for yourself here ;-)
July 2, 2014:
This website is undergoing a major overhaul to merge it with our main 5 Points Media website. We expect to be fully updated and online again by September 1, 2014.
We have listened to our readers, including the clients of Digital Video Productions and the supporters of Patrick Brown, who have said that they are trying to understand but cannot follow the story. In that light, we are now producing videos that will walk our readers through the details of our evidence.
We will then be exercising our right, as has now been established by the Barrie Police Services, to contact every business connected to Digital Video Productions in Barrie and beyond, as well as all of our constituency's voters through social media, to tell them about the launch of 5 Points Magazine and the revamp of this story; which is only fair since that is what their muckraker Darren Roskam did.
On that note, we will also be posting details of Darren Roskam’s most recent utter loss at the Small Claims Court, where his claim of defamation regarding this story was scuttled without even being shown the respect of a trial after Darren Roskam scrambled to protect his ‘beloved’ MP Patrick Brown and the controversial Conservative's buddies from the truth of our evidence: you know, those being the guys with whom Darren Roskam is not in any way associated ;-)
That little misadventure through our legal system cost Darren Roskam an order of $2,500.00 in costs; however, of course the the self-admitted rider of Welfare who was diagnosed as paranoid is still claiming to be victorious and is determined to appeal the order even though the law prohibits him from doing so. Well, what do the judges know anyway?
For those keeping count, that is now two separate courts of law that have noted our right to tell this story based on the evidence; and the reason for that is we can back up EVERYTHING we are saying.
That is also the reason why Digital Video Productions and Patrick Brown have both declined their right to try to shut this story down, or to make their case on camera as we have offered.
It is easy for those we are exposing to claim they are being defamed, but not so easy to prove it when faced with the kind of evidence we have against them; as Darren Roskam just found out. He lost his 'right' to sue because the judge saw the truth and the same will happen should Patrick Brown, Mark Lang, or Martin Convery ever find the courage to fight for their 'good name' rather than running away while throwing slurs and insults through their maniacal mouthpiece.
We will also be making available to other potential victims of the court ruled vexatious litigant the evidence they will need to convince a judge to scuttle Darren Roskam's all too frequent frivolous lawsuits and to dispel any online defamatory libel that always seem to accompany Darren Roskam's attempts to extort money for feigned offences.
Apparently Darren Roskam is a delicate flower who has the 'right' to receive tens of thousands of dollars whenever somebody makes a random comment against him, while at the same time he publishes hundreds of pages of childish defamatory libel and mocking pictures online about others that NOBODY cares about while hiding from prosecution behind the status of a rider of Welfare.
Is there any wonder Darren Roskam is known in local political circles as the Village Idiot?
