A few days later, the Chief of Security for the U of W, Martin Grainger, appeared at my front door and handed a notice to my son. It was a new trespassing order, and this time there was no expiry date. So the following Monday I wrote to the University as follows:
TO THE UNIVERSITY OF WINNIPEG:
It has come to my attention that the University is considering the renewal of the trespassing order that was imposed on me last year. I wish to go on record as stating that I would consider such a move to be an abuse of the powers granted you by the Petty Trespassing Act, and I would urge you not to proceed in that direction.
If it is your considered opinion that this is what you want to do, I would ask you to serve me official notice in accordance with the Court of Queen's Bench Rules for Personal Service, and then we can proceed accordingly. You may contact me to arrange service and I will cooperate. I have no interest in attempting to evade proper service.
Until then, I will consider myself to be governed by the terms of the original order of January 2011.
