His view of the whole mess is decidedly less romantic. A A A  His ground of appeal was that during the trial the Crown refused to disclose important information to him. A A A  She indicated that she was no longer working for Stinchcombe on the date she had supposedly typed the document and seen Abrams sign it. A A A  The trial judge ruled that it was perfectly proper for the Crown not to disclose these items, and the Alberta Court of Appeal agreed. A A A  The prosecutor wasna€™t sure if Abrams might have lied when he made an earlier assignment in bankruptcy, or whether he might have lied at Stinchcombea€™s preliminary inquiry. A A A  Stinchcombe was also turfed from his volunteer position with the Calgary Stampede, where he had worked extensively on the Indian Events Committee. A A A  As bad as the fallout from the criminal charges was, Stinchcombea€™s suspension from the practice of law may have had greater impact a€“ at least, on his day-to-day life. A A A  Soon after this judgment was released Stinchcombe was reinstated to the Alberta bar.
A A A  Jerry Schwartz, a Calgary electrical engineer who also complained that Stinchcombe ripped him off, says the reinstatement is a€?the best thing that could have happened to me.
A A A  Apparently Stinchcombe persuaded Schwartz, who had become both a client and a friend, to lend him $310,000 to help finance a hotel. A A A  The court observed that at some point Stinchcombe sold the stock but the proceeds never made it to Schwartz. A A A  Efforts to contact Jack Abrams who, if he is still with us, would be in his mid-eighties by now, were not successful.
A A A  Schwartz isna€™t bitter either, even though he took a financial hit and spent somewhere around $200,000 in legal fees pursuing various remedies, which he says he did a€?on principle.a€? He feels wronged, but he maintains a healthy perspective.
There must be a lesson here, somewhere, although one probably wouldna€™t want to follow Stinchcombea€™sA exactA life-path. A A A  Although Stinchcombe became estranged from much of his family, he has largely reconciled. A A A  He often wonders why the charges and complaints against him were pursued with such persistence and vigour, and whether, in regards to some of those charges and complaints, there might conceivably have been motivations other than the pure pursuit of justice.
A A A  What would have happened if the smoking-gun memo had surfaced at the very beginning? Later, over lunch, the 49-year-old Ma€™Garry illustrates the problem with a bizarre (and repellent) anecdote.
A A A  According to the report, a pig farmer named Raymond Rammeloo was fined $10,000 for the improper spreading of liquefied swine excrement, which found its way into a nearby well and from there into the unfortunate womana€™s shower. The governmenta€™s solution is the Nutrient Management Act, which sets out manure rules for farmers. After lunch, from the picture window of Ma€™Garrya€™s 25th floor office building in London (known to locals as a€?the Forest Citya€?) pastel fall trees can be seen glowing red, orange and gold in the afternoon sun. Garnet inherited pretty much the same vocal instrument and wrote songs with a wider variety of themes. Garneta€™s mother and father came from Nova Scotia, but moved to Hamilton, Ontario to find work. After Stan was signed by RCA records to do some novelty singles and they went nowhere, he moved to London, Ontario, which was closer to Garnet. During the last two years of high school, Garnet was part of a strange, interesting concept. Garnet sprinkles his between-song patter with stories and cutting, wry humor that audiences carry home and share with others. Garneta€™s story is so rich and hea€™s such a great musician (his blues fingerpicking on a€?Corrine, Corrinaa€? might be the best Ia€™ve ever heard) that this article should span two issues. Garnet told me, a€?I got Stana€™s secondhand guitar when he got a decent one.a€? When Garnet was about 12, Stan gave him a Mississippi John Hurt LP for Christmas.
It was September of 1987 when the former Calgary lawyer found himself driving his pick-up truck, with a trailer full of horses in tow, through the Alberta Rockies. However, the mountaintop reprieve was not the end but the beginning of an odyssey of trouble. At the first trial, which occurred in February of 1989, he was convicted of criminal breach of trust, theft and fraud and sentenced to nine years in prison. All he knew was that Lineham, his star witness who had testified so helpfully at the preliminary inquiry, had now changed her story, or done something else disastrous, and the Crown, having decided she was a€?not worthy of credit,a€? was opting not to call her as a witness. As trial number three was gearing up, with the tape in hand, it emerged that there wassomething elseA the Crown should have disclosed but hadna€™t. Police interviewed Abramsa€™ lawyer to see what the heck was going on, but he had no memory of conversations with the prosecutor, or with Abrams, about lying. Finally, on April 26, 2002, the Alberta Court of Appeal stayed all Law Society charges against him.
Because if Stinchcombe starts making money, maybe Ia€™ll actually collect something.a€? Schwartz won a civil suit against him in March of 1994. According to the court, a€?Schwartz had no idea the hotel was facing foreclosure proceedings.a€? He also had no idea of the existence of Jack Abrams, and no idea that the stock Stinchcombe put up as collateral for the loan was clouded with dispute about who owned it a€“ Abrams claimed it was his, and that Stinchcombe had misappropriated it. It was, after all, the bitter recession and real estate crash of the early 1980s, and money was evaporating left, right and centre. He often thinks about the old legal adage: cases are not won and lost on what actually happened, but on whatA evidenceA comes out in court. Stinchcombea€™s voice a€“ over the phone from Australia a€“ is velvety, seductive, and altogether pleasant.
As he talks on the phone, his life-partner Margaret pipes up in the background: a€?We have a passion fruit on the vine!a€? He says the beach is visible in the distance, and the backyard is host to many attractive flora and fauna, including wild wallabies. He figures that, afterA Stinchcombe, criminal lawyers suddenly needed twice as much office space to store all the disclosed documents.
But to Stinchcombe, having a Supreme Court decision of such monumental importance named after him is no big deal. He was acquitted of the criminal charges, he had his licence to practise law reinstated, and he came out of it all with a smile. If a€?dolphin friendlya€? tuna was a hit with shoppers, why not a€?environmentally friendlya€? pork?
On her desk is small glass pig a€” a gift from a client a€” and its amber tones match the autumnal tints outside. Her kitchen sink, located directly over the cafea€™s stage, allowed her to put a hose from the sink into a hole in the floor and send a torrent of water onto performers during their show.
They were fans of country and folk music and, as youngsters, had listened to Carter Family broadcasts from a powerful border station in Mexico during the a€™30s. He had wanted to learn the building blocks of playing the flute and learn how to read music, so he briefly attended a class in 10th grade for that purpose.
A great believer in playing out, he stated, a€?You can spend three hours practicing scales by yourself and youa€™re not really learning; but if you spend ten minutes on stage wondering where all those notes are and how youa€™re going to make them count, thata€™s a much better way of learning an instrument. Garnet started commuting every weekend because there was a club there that he liked, Smalea€™s Pace.


The next morning he hitchhiked up to northern Ontario where the band was and found the tour bus.
Guys came to the bars to get drunk, not to listen to sensitive guitar players singing about life. As Garnet stated elsewhere: a€?The Maritime traditional sound we developed was a response to partly the market and partly simply due to the commissions we were given by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. All three band members had planned to go home on the same flight, but only Stan wanted to stay the extra few days after the festival. At the Cabin Concert he told about how he began talking onstage about getting sober, soon after his three days of cold turkey in a motel room.
They were fans of country and folk music and, as youngsters, had listened to Carter Family broadcasts from a powerful border station in Mexico during the a€™30s.A  Garnet and his older brother Stan grew up in Woodburn, a community in the easternmost part of Hamilton. He stood accused of misappropriating $1.6 million he allegedly held in trust for Calgary geologist Jack Abrams.
Then there wouldna€™t be a problem anymore.a€? What saved him was an eleventh-hour burst of sympathy for his animals. They stayed alive seven years, during which he was put on trial three a€“ repeat,A threeA a€“ separate times. Previously, at the preliminary inquiry, Lineham had said some things that might have exonerated Stinchcombe a€“ she testified that she had typed and witnessed the signing of a document which purported to abolish all trust agreements between Stinchcombe and Abrams. The police officer who possessed them had passed away of a brain tumor and his widow couldna€™t find them. There was a group a€“ the Magnificent Seven, he calls them a€“ who put up the $150,000 to bail him out of jail, where he was locked up for nearly a week. It appears to me that he became caught up with people living a lifestyle to which he aspired but could not attain by working merely as a lawyer.
Whether shea€™s standing at a podium, or meeting a group of lawyers in a hotel lounge, she isna€™t afraid to use it. One can easily imagine her as the sort of person who, on occasion, finds herself laughing through tears. As well as discussing legal strategies, she is compiling her research about the dire health risks and sharing it with the complainants. The purpose is to reduce odors and keep water quality safe, says George Garland, an engineer and nutrient management expert with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food.
What I didna€™t know was that the day of the show, Ia€™d be fielding anxious messages from Garnet, left on the cafea€™s phone answering machine throughout the day. On two occasions I had run to the basement during a show to shut off the buildinga€™s water main.
At any given hour, youa€™d hear Frank Zappa, Duke Ellington, Phil Ochsa€¦ Frank Zappa would be on for an interview, then theya€™d play Schoenberg a€¦ no rhyme or reason, no sense to anything a€¦ it was just music. By 16, whenever Stan had a local gig, Ia€™d sit in for a bit if it wasna€™t a school night. Being large men, they got used to the idea that theya€™d have to fight to play their music. We did a lot of soundtrack work for radio dramas and a lot of it was in Halifax.a€? From that point forward, Stana€™s reputation grew as the six albums produced during his lifetime were released.
Along with the grind of the road, Garnet had to process the loss of his brother and his brothera€™s growing legend. Wea€™ll simply have to implore our readers to see Garnet live and buy every album hea€™s released.
This will teach you how to fingerpick.a€? Garnet recalled, a€?I remember sitting on the front step one afternoon. He was in serious trouble, and the enormity of his predicament hit home that September day as he negotiated the mountain road.
The Crown managed to provide a photocopy of the statement andA transcriptsA of the tape, but Stinchcombe demanded the tape itself.
It was enough to prompt the Crown who now had carriage of the file, Tudor Beattie of Albertaa€™s Dept.
I became paranoid to the extent that I didna€™t want to go anywhere for fear I would meet someone I knew and be snubbed.a€? He remembers one particular incident in a Calgary grocery store. Well, heA didA a€“ he ended up getting the principal of the loan back, from Stinchcombea€™s malpractice insurer. Although he now minimizes the lifestyle he came to lead, the fact is that he continually had a string of four to six polo ponies and related equipment and traveled around North America playing polo.
Ita€™s all water under the bridge.a€? As for Stinchcombe, Schwartz thinks of him as a€?a very, very articulate and affable guy. Instead of ending up bitter and miserable, condemned to life of furtive wandering and resentful remembering, hea€™s at peace.
If youa€™d asked her 20 years ago if shea€™d ever be inclined to read such a publication, shea€™d have looked at you funny. After all, there are million of gallons of the stuff produced each year, and it has to go somewhere (such as on farmland where crops are grown), and by golly it is a fertilizer. Her healthy sense of humour provides much-needed comic relief from the stressful and revolting subject matter that makes up such a large chunk of her practice.
And shea€™s hoping to overcome the setback that occurred in one of her early cases,A Burns v. And while they cana€™t eliminate risk a€” if that were societya€™s goal, the aviation industry would have to be shut down, as would the automotive industry, etc. By this time, most fans in our little circle knew about Garneta€™s brother, the iconic Stan Rogers, and his tragic early passing. He didna€™t know that we were completely volunteer-run and truly manned only on evenings when shows were scheduled.
However, our neighbor was softening, aware that Ia€™d been working on the ceiling, trying to remedy the situation.
Garnet likes to say, only half-facetiously, that theya€™d have to fight their way on-stage, off-stage and back to the hotel and that they developed a middle set that was nothing but sea chanteys which left their hands free to defend themselves. Garnet was already home when a television news broadcast told about the flash fire that trapped Stan during an emergency landing, killing him presumably of smoke inhalation.
The temptation of drinking that often follows many a solo touring musician was actually a continuation of his time with Stan. He added: a€?After I quit, I got a letter from [Scotch whiskey manufacturer] Glenfiddich, asking, Was it something we said?a€™a€™ These days, he also reads from the memoir hea€™s working on of his days with Stan.
Garnet was already home when a television news broadcast told about the flash fire that trapped Stan during an emergency landing, killing him presumablyA  of smoke inhalation.
But it was because when there were arguments with the Stampede Board, or if the Indians needed something said for them, I was the one who did it.a€? And sometimes those arguments turned passionate. Indeed, there have been a number of cases where tax assessments have been reduced anywhere from 10 to 50 percent for properties that are within smelling distance of pig barns. She has become something of a crusader in the pig world, and has fought long and hard a€” oftenA pro bonoA a€” with only limited success. And the fact that the province, following the lead of Alberta, has recently passed the Nutrient Management Act, which will supersede any municipal manure rules, means future litigation will take place on a new playing field.
Stan had written elegiac songs about the working class in the Canadian Maritimes and farms, and had a rich, deep baritone.
Wondering why nobody was there to answer the phone, he repeated his concern with each message, as to whether there would actually be a show. Taking no chances, though, without saying anything to Garnet, I grabbed $40 from our bank and ran upstairs.


I finally got it and my mom came out and said a€?ita€™s dinner time.a€™ I said, a€?I cana€™t come in.
It was the very same plane Garnet had flown home a couple of days earlier.A  a€?It could have been any one or all of us,a€? Garnet told me.
And worse, it describes a Gordian knot of financial transactions so convoluted that reading about them could cause serious mental trauma, even a brain hemorrhage. And then I said yeah, but if I do that, then my son wona€™t have anybody to go to the movies with on Friday night. Manure is not liquefied but rather ita€™s mixed with straw and returned to the soil naturally, thereby avoiding environmental problems. As he approached from somewhere north, the sound of his voice got more and more agitated as he got closer and closer.
We had two drummers, two bass players, a sitar player a€¦ For Goda€™s sake, we had an interpretive dancer at the side of the stage who wore black tights and whiteface.a€? Garnet was part of the band and played local gigs, but still in high school, he couldna€™t do road dates. On the first album I bought, Speaking Softly in the Dark (1988), Garnet comes as close as Ia€™ve heard him sound like Stan, on a€?Like a Diamond Ring,a€? by his friend, Steve Hayes, one of the number of songs by other songwriters.
In an email, he described how one story got this response: a€?[folksinger] Steve Gillette came up to me after a show and told me he enjoyed the reading but now had a very curious nine-year-old grandson who wanted to know what kind of person a a€?drag queena€™ was, and just what was a a€?hand joba€™? The same is true of many other areas in Canada, and the United States, and the entire world. The company says its methods produce little or no odor, help preserve water supplies, and sustain the land and community for future generations. At one point a a€?stinky land deala€? a€” the stench was from corruption, not manure a€” took her all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada, where she won.
Canadian icon Garnet Rogers is singing his song, a€?Night Drive,a€? about a dream of his brother Stan, who perished years before. He wasna€™t leaving a phone number, so I believe he was using pay phones en route and there was no way for me to reassure him. The farmer, out of self-interest, is going to put the thing as far away from his own house as possible.
Must have been a fun drive homea€¦a€? We heard the story referred to at the Cabin Concert, but I wona€™t reveal the details and spoil the fun for future audience members.
Or, at any rate, it has seen itself moving uncomfortably in that direction, so much so that it has created strict manure laws and bought out many of its farmers (who then emigrate to places like Ontario where, comparatively speaking, ita€™s a manure free-for-all). Garnet was his typically majestic self, filling the room with sounds the walls had never felt before. We decided to become a trio and actually rehearse and work at what we were doing.a€? Early on Stan was still finding his style. Of the four albums Garnet sent me, I like the studio albums, Firefly (2001) and Shining Thing (2004), the best. He used to speak more about his vehicles (a€?The Stealth Volvoa€?), but that was absent during the last swing. On one side, Ia€™d be working on a painting a€” I fancied myself a painter a€” and when I got so far on the painting that I couldna€™t work on it anymore, Ia€™d turn around. Theya€™re giant metal hangars filled-to-bursting with thousands of desperate pigs who never see the light of day. Their pig system is based on humane treatment of animals and environmentally friendly manure management that uses a patented composting technology. Researchers are even working on the genetically engineered a€?Enviropiga€? whose dung has less phosphorus. He had come fully into his own by the time of these albumsa€™ releases, settling into a muscular, chesty vocal sound, and had long begun building his own storehouse of songs. I went online for one of these older stories: a€?Two years ago after wearing out four Volvos I got to the point where I didna€™t want to support my mechanica€™s extravagant lifestyle,a€? he said, without even a hint of a chuckle. The animals just stand in one confined spot, and pretty much all they do is eat and defecate. He has outrun sorrows in his life and he sees the ridiculous in everyday existence a€” mainly in his life. A new dilemma revealed itself as he continued to carry more guitars in, followed by electric amps that made him look like a one-man Pink Floyd tribute act. With a now-familiar self-deprecation, he said, a€?Yeah, after I got over my hissy fit.a€? Years later, we had a chat before he did a Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors concert and I told him about that night and the woman above the cafe. One night he returned with this weird look in his eyes like Charlton Heston as Moses with his hair turned white, coming down from the mountain. The European Union is in the process of banning these battery-pig operations, on animal-welfare grounds. Starting with muscle cells from a€?animal donors,a€? he believes hea€™ll be able to grow lumps of meat a€” pork, beef, chicken, even kangaroo a€” weighing up to 50 kilos in large containers. He said, a€?a€¦Wilson Pickett just wrote The Ten Commandments with his finger!a€™ Stan was in a little rhythm and blues band when he was in high school. It was the Escherichia coli bacterium from cow manure that got into the drinking water supply of Walkerton, Ont.
This is an interesting point when it comes to the issue of governmental water quality regulations. And he doesna€™t think drinking water safety is the real issue, although the battleground has shifted there because ita€™s a such a hot button for the anti-pig barn camp to push. Garnet described how they would travel the Yellowhead Highway in Saskatchewan, in a tricked-out van that wore out four engines. Then Ia€™d add a second guitar track, or later on when I picked up flute and violin [he earned the money and bought them], add one of those.
She cites numerous studies suggesting that this practice encourages the evolution of deadly, antibiotic-resistant a€?superbugsa€? in the world at large. Profit margins in the pig industry are already ridiculously thin, and adding extra costs might well drive operators out of business and thus threaten an industry that is worth an estimated $11.5 billion a year nationwide. For example, Ontarioa€™s brand new Safe Drinking Water Act, which is designed to prevent future Walkerton tragedies, sets out safeguards to make sure water treatment workers actuallyA treatA the water. Ita€™s an industry that has propelled Canada to first place among the worlda€™s pork exporters, an industry that has seen Canada become known internationally for its excellent export piglets. Leta€™s take all that money and back it up, so we dona€™t have to treat the shit out of our water a€” if youa€™ll pardon my turn of phrase a€” in the first place.
We can either spend an awful lot of money cleaning it up once wea€™ve polluted it, or we can stop polluting it.
The culprit seems to be enigmatic Stan Koebel, the water-treatment guy who didna€™t treat the water. When it tested positive for lethal contamination he lied and told everyone it was fine, and he himself continued to drink it. 14(1) provides that a€?despite any other provision of this Act or the regulations, no person shall discharge a contaminant or cause or permit the discharge of a contaminant into the natural environment that causes or is likely to cause an adverse effect,a€? the very next section, s. After all, the barn itself wona€™t contaminate the environment, even if subsequent manure disposal would do so.
