My name is Shelley, Tundra is my service dog and this is a webpage I created for reasons that few could understand. I guess you could say Tundra also gives me this outlet to express my frustration, it was going to be a webpage about how much I love my service dog, there is a very famous painting by Sir Edwin Landseer called " saved" I use to have a newfoundland dog,no word of a lie, Tundra is this dog to me. I love Tundra more than I love myself. As I have said on my website my career was a visual artist. I' don't know how to unbe someone who creates visual art.
Tundra as well as myself has been very badly exploited, and she is my only safety so I am having to remove photos of her.
This webpage is created by me, paid for by me and it takes a lot of work to do this you probably never work harder than when you are trying to save your own life.
Nothing on this webpage about me is for sale or to be exploited, but some would wonder. If you'd like to buy something from me you can visit shelleyleach.com. After abuse you go through safety planning, here's the truth, you can take all the measures you want but if someone is going to hurt you they will do it anyway. Another thing is online safety, you know, don't use your real name, cover your tracks, but in some cases exactly the opposite is required and this is one of those cases. I'm not here becasue I want to be, I'm here because I have to be.
Its the only thing I have " in case" something happens to me because of someone else. That is the truth, that is not a choice, its called survival.
Unless you've experienced these sort of abuses it'd be hard to understand.
If you've come here from Shelleyleach.com you'll have a better understanding of evolvment of my internet presence.
Know when to speak up know when to stay silent, speak out or suffer in silence. You can't stop abuse if you don't speak out. Speak out against abuse.
I thought Id take some time and dedicate some of this site to sharing some information pertaining to sexual harassment and assault. To escape and survive abuse I have found its important to remember, essential to survival and also easier said than done, probably similar to the adage "do as I say, not as I do". I struggle with it everyday. Never be ashamed of what someone else did to you. People who protect abusers should be ashamed of themselves.
As you scroll though my page, be reminded, I've experience a lot of traumactic injuries from all of this, in addition I have a very real learning disability so to do this would have been hard even without the traumatic injury, here we go.... on July 11, 2016 persons unknown to me entered my home illegally took control of all my property and had unfettered access to every piece of personal and private information a person could possible have for more than several months , I couldn't do anything and all the services that should have helped didn't do anything or passed the buck to someone else or some other service and know one did anything. It's not a comforting feeling, its extremely violating, in a sense the feeling I have is my life was not worth trying to save and a lot of real harm resulted.

What is sexual assault?
Illegal sexual contact that usually involves force upon a person or is inflicted upon a person who is incapable of giving consent.
What is sexual harassment?
Uninvited, unwelcome verbal or physical behavior of a sexual nature, especially by a person in authority toward a subordinate.
I cover a lot of stuff on this webpage, to understand the present you have to knowing something about the past so I have inserted various sections of a audio statement I gave to the OPP in Oct 2016 because, you can't cover up a lie with a lie, you also can't keep putting bandages on top of bandages, the wound doesn't heal. I feel very hated. I don't think I will ever get use to it, I've been made to feel ashamed of who I am, and where I came from. That's tough, I have no idea why, I've always been proud of who my parent were, what I accomplished despite my hardships I was proud of my artwork. I never felt ashamed of who I was but people have a uncanny talent for breaking people down and for lack of better words they worked me over good.
"Victims don’t trust our criminal justice system. That mistrust is even higher for those who are marginalized and face additional systemic barriers."
originally recorded November 25, 2016. I filed my HR application Nov 30, 2016, a person can't file any other civil claim in any other court until some resolution is determined. I had to file another HR complaint July 18, 2018 and this is going to a hearing as my allegations of sexual harassment at the June 13, 2018 interview for sexual assault have all ready been substantiated. As for what we talked about "civil liability" in this case still exists even though its 2020. I assume this is part of the reasons for all the harassment and reprisal, this web page is a step I had to take and continue to take to enforce my code rights. canlii.org/en/on/laws
Victims’ Bill of Rights, 1995
An Act Respecting Victims of Crime – Victims' Bill of Rights, was proclaimed as law on June 11, 1996. The Act supports and recognizes the needs of victims of crime.
The Act includes a set of principles that guide how justice system officials should treat victims at different stages of the criminal justice process.
The principals stipulate that victims:
- are treated with courtesy, compassion and respect for their personal dignity ? and privacy;
- have access to information concerning services and remedies available to victims;
- have access to information about the progress of criminal investigations and prosecutions and the sentencing and interim release of offenders from custody;
- are given the opportunity to be interviewed by police officers and officials of the same gender as the victim, when that victim has been sexually assaulted;
(2) The following victims shall be presumed to have suffered emotional distress:
2. A victim of a sexual assault.
3. A victim of an attempted sexual assault. 1995, c. 6, s. 3 (2); 1999, c. 6, s. 65 (3); 2005, c. 5, s. 72 (3).
Money doesn't buy forgiveness, it doesn't undo what happen and it will never take away the pain, the fear and humiliation I felt, feel, or the mistrust and loss of confidence they have shown me I have every right to feel and will live with the rest of my life.
But I will tell you, after all this, money is all there is and it will keep happening. Next time she or he might be younger, might be older, might live, might die. I have no idea what it takes to change Institutional systemic abuse when people really don't want to change. All I know for sure, is, I spoke up for myself because I cared what happened to other people, that is the right thing to do.
Remember... their actions did not cause them undue hardship.
13.1 Principles of accommodation
The duty to accommodate is informed by three principles: respect for dignity, individualization, and integration and full participation.13.1.1. Respect for dignity
The duty to accommodate people with disabilities means accommodation must be provided in a way that most respects the dignity of the person, if doing so does not cause undue hardship. Human dignity encompasses individual self-respect, self-worth and inherent worth as a human being. It is concerned with physical and psychological integrity and empowerment. It is harmed when people are marginalized, stigmatized, ignored or devalued. Privacy, confidentiality, comfort, individuality and self-esteem are all important factors.
if at anytime you think I should take something off this webpage, feel free to let me know. Remembering total strangers were inside my home and I wasn't permitted access.
Complaints process A member of the public who wishes to make a complaint about the conduct of a Prosecutor may write her Crown Attorney (or Director if the complaint is about the Crown Attorney). Upon receipt of the complaint about a Prosecutor’s conduct, the Crown Attorney must record the information received and should acknowledge receipt within 5 business days.
If at any time you'd like anything removed from this page as I have said before don't hesitate to ask.

third recorded time they denied me control of my property. I have proof. I paid for the storage units, see the receipt dated Dec 15, 2016 . anyone could have had access to my property .To be put in the position I had to create this page, could be compare it to saying NO then being sexually assaulted anyway. Its abuse. When I had to jump out of a moving vehicle terrified after being sexually assaulted, I had no choice. I have no choice. I think the correct term is called a public outcry!
BTW... these were text messages sent to me, not from me. I took a photo of the text messages with my camera after the fact, as I needed them for a police investigation about sexual assault. http://rehtaehparsons.ca/
I had no idea he use to be a OPP.
The following will establish that someone experienced reprisal based on a Code ground:
- an action was taken against, or a threat was made to, the claimant
- the alleged action or threat was related to the claimant having claimed, or trying to enforce a Code right, and
- there was an intention on the part of the respondent to retaliate for the claim or the attempt to enforce the right
there was an intention on the part of the respondent to retaliate for the claim or the attempt to enforce the right
March 2017 telephone call with OPP Sergeant Bruce Sawbridge
Recorded Call duration 5 minutes 26 seconds
Start time 2:16
(Transcription of recorded call 2 minutes)
Leach – what is what exactly is a suppression of evidence
Sawbridge -suppression of evidence
Leach – do you know anybody who has ever suppressed evidence before
Sawbridge – hiding evidence
Leach – ya in a case
Sawbridge – I guess so, yes I guess so for sure
Leach – do you know somebody who did
Leach- do you know somebody who did that did they happen to work in the Killaloe detachment
Sawbridge – ohh I I don’t know
Leach - were they a detective at one point
I thought it would be helpful to remind everyone of the context... we all have very short attention spans. I'll remind you again at the bottom of the page too.
In addition, the Code prohibits creation of a poisoned environment. A poisoned environment is a form of discrimination and can arise from even a single incident. It may be created by the comments or actions of any person, regardless of his or her status. The comments or conduct do not have to be directed at a particular individual.
Gender-based harassment is a specific type of sexual harassment defined as “any behaviour that polices and reinforces traditional heterosexual gender norms.” It is commonly used in an attempt to re-establish gender norms – that is, polarized masculinity and femininity – by putting a person who is perceived to be “deviant” back in their “place.” It is well-established that harassment and discrimination based on sex may not always be of a sexual nature. Behaviour that is not explicitly sexual may still amount to harassment because of sex.
Human rights law clearly recognizes that sexual harassment is often not about sexual desire or interest at all. In fact, it often involves hostility, rejection, and/or bullying of a sexual nature. “Gender-based harassment.”
A person may be especially vulnerable to sexual harassment when they are identified by more than one Code ground. Where multiple grounds intersect to produce a unique experience of discrimination or harassment, we must acknowledge this to fully address the impact on the person who experienced it. Where the evidence shows that harassment occurred based on multiple grounds, decision-makers should consider the intersection when thinking about liability and the remedy available to the claimant.

Artistic license wikipedia.org/wiki/Artistic_license. I grew up in the military and took great thought in what I did and why I did it, it represent a very large community. This painting is of no person specifically and I cannot control what others could think, nor would I pretend to know what someone else could or might think. It is a work of art that pays tribute to my community in the way I decided to do it for-military-children. Its called memorial art, it is a reminder to remember when appropriate, and if you remember what you need to remember on November 11 of every year and this painting helps you with that then I created a historical piece of artwork worthy of a museum collection and by the looks of it I did and for this I will always be proud.
Remember who is always there!
This was my dad and me.
Another nice photo of my dad from 2012. Taken someplace close to Combermere Ontario, unfortunately.
So this photo was from July 29, 2016 and that is the tooth I lost above that. Those are only some of the photos I have, as I was too busy trying to live though the day, This was not domestic violence this was dehumanizing abuse. " You" may not fully understand. You see that little red spot that is a horizontal crack in my tooth, that is not how teeth naturally crack its usually vertical. Not that is usual for teeth to crack. What do you think caused that? . You know July 11, 2016 I was having a normal day went out for a few hours, came home and ...................what would you do?
I feel abused
Here's what I know about consent, "This idea is that if you drink, you’re putting yourself at risk of sexual assault. These beliefs are problematic,Instead of telling people not to drink because it will put them at risk for sexual assault, we need to tell perpetrators not to commit sexual assault."
First, when it comes to consent, the law is very clear that:
- You can only consent for yourself.
- You actually have to be able to give consent. That means you have to be awake, conscious, and sober enough to make a clear decision.
- People in positions of trust, power or authority can’t abuse their position to get sexual activity.
- If you imply no through your words or behaviours that’s just as good as saying “NO”.
- You have the right to change your mind and stop anytime for any reason during sexual activity
Here are some pages I have visited much like you might, again, I don't use facebook or Twitter but it doesn't mean I can't see whats on them. example "The tree will make a sound, even if nobody heard it, because it could have been heard. ... Since sound does not exist without our hearing of it, sound does not exist if we do not hear it. However, when a tree falls, the motion disturbs the air and sends off air waves"
"It is every woman’s fundamental right to live in safety and security in her home and community – free from the threat of violence."
This section here is mostly about what happened in Quebec, it all kind of connects so although I started with 2018 its part of understanding how this all connects together yet are separate because the indents happened its two different provinces.2010 toronto.com/news-story/13183-kars-artist-paddling-her-way-to-river-conservation/ 15% of $3000 worth of sales was $450. For some perspective. How many cases of beer or bottles of whiskey do you think $10,000 paid for those who understand, and how much food, clothing and shelter could I have been able to pay for then or now. Today. This letter is confusing in 2004 I left him after 12 years. Ending up back there for 1.5 months in 2015 was total desperation and I was re- assaulted within a week, I slept in parking lots most nights as can be seen and is well documented 1.5 months was like 12 years condensed.
Nothing has changed. Quebec Police reports from 11/12/2015, 01/22/2016, 01/25/2016, 06/17/2016, July 2016 and August 2, or 3 2016 @ 1 pm. Sorry, I can't exactly remember the exact date, something must have happened that I would have some memory loss from August 2 or 3rd 2016. I'm certainly not putting this out there for the betterment of my well being, can you possibly imagen how much intimidation I have gone through to get to this point. Do you think its spontainouly just going to stop. Remember why I'm here.
She died in 2003. Using a benchmark my minimum income loss from the theft of my art solely based on the work I had already produced would be $97,200.00 and that's
not including 2015, and doesn't include pain and suffering

"Subject: painting stolen from 2015
Date: Tue, 27 Nov 2018 10:45:47 -0500
Dear Mr ,
I was speaking with you receptionist. We briefly met in 2015 when Mr took me to your office. I am not sure if you are aware I was there against my will. In physically assaulted me and I called the police on him. He was threatening me.
It is my understanding he took the painting you have in your offices. The painting by me and my mother and sold it to you. I am not sure if you are aware Mr did not and does not own that painting. With or without your knowledge you purchased stolen artwork. He also stole the majority of all my artwork and my mothers artwork and I have reported it to the police.
The reason this is a concern is I was told the financial transaction between you and he was for $10,000.00. The painting is worth far more than $10,000.00. I'm not really sure how to deal with this, as effectively Mr sold you stolen artwork and he is the one who stole it.
I know you do not represent him anymore and I would like to speak with you to see how we can deal with this situation. I don't believe you bought the artwork knowing he stole it but it was still a financial transaction and that painting has been in your office for over 3 years.
Look forward to hearing from you,
So this email was sent Nov 27, 2018 and I received NO response. For those who don't understand, its about more than the art, I guess its some sort of trophy to them, so not only is it purchasing stolen art, its amoral, a sin.
