British Columbia Investment Management Corporation

British Columbia Investment Management Corporation (BCIMC) claims to be a model corporate citizen following ethical principles in its business dealings but there is emerging evidence BCIMC may be a criminal organization that terrorizes law abiding citizens in order to take over their property.

The story of how BCIMC secretly conspired to take over the property of Pacific Rim Resort owned by the English family reveals a network controlled by BCIMC stretching from Victoria, British Columbia, to Atlanta, Georgia.

The campaign of terrorism included, firebombing, vandalism, death threats, abuse of municipal power, abuse of government power, obstruction of justice, and attempted murder as part of a conspiracy to acquire private property at fire sale prices. All investors in British Columbia need to be aware of these tactics by Government agencies.

There is an ancient legal maxim: "He who profits most from a crime is the one most likely to have committed it"

The available evidence shows that crimes were committed and that BCIMC, along with its subsidiary Parkbridge Lifestyle Communities Inc. (Parkbridge), and the Government of British Columbia benefitted so, in the Editors opinion, the logical conclusion, at this time, is that the Government of British Columbia, BCIMC and Parkbridge committed the crimes.

Is the British Columbia Investment Management Corporation a criminal organization that uses terrorism to achieve its business objectives?

This blog is dedicated to helping the citizens of British Columbia resist the rapacious and predatory methods of the British Columbia Investment Management Corporation (BCIMC) that has been accused of using devious methods to plunder a small family business in order to benefit public service pension plans. 

We have been asked to investigate the case of Pacific Rim Resort and, based on our research, we are of the opinion that BCIMC used its power and influence to cheat the owners out of a very valuable piece of property located next door to Pacific Rim National Park at reduced distress sale prices.

According to owner Jack English, their property was violently attacked for 3 years as part of a terrorist campaign to force them off the land.

We will tell you the facts and you can be the judge.

In 2008 Pacific Rim Resort Campground, owned by the English Family since 1984 was undergoing a change from nightly camping to long term RV Pad Leasing. Over 300 families indicated interest in purchasing Leases from the English Family and the future looked bright.

However, the Resort had a Lender who appears to have decided otherwise.

Mission Creek Mortgage of Kelowna, British Columbia, held the first mortgage on the property.  Dealing through their brokers, Paradigm Mortgage, also of Kelowna, Mission Creek had, according to Jack English, lured the English family and their holding companies into a very high rate mortgage of 10.5% by promising to finance the redevelopment of the property to condos and hotels right on the beach. 

Eventually, the English family realized the Mission Creek plan was not going to happen and spoke to their many past customers and others at the campground and found there was huge interest by families wanting a long term lease on a recreational vehicle (RV) pad on the Resort property with its amazing beach and fantastic fishing nearby.
According to Jack English, when Paradigm / Mission Creek learned of the new plan by the English family it refused to honour its signed Commitment Letter and started foreclosure proceedings in 2009 without giving them even a chance to market any RV pad leases.

Paradigm’s CEO, Rae Meier, then led the English’s into thinking they would refinance them and told them to deal with a Mortgage Broker, Rick Dowding in Kelowna, but they had no intention of refinancing them and it was discovered that the Mortgage Broker was under BC Government suspension for unethical practices.

Then, in 2010, while fighting a hugely expensive legal battle with Paradigm, the English family decided to try and find a big company to come in and lease half their property so they could pay out Paradigm / Mission Creek and allow them to continue with their leasing program with all the great families they had dealt with over the three decades they had been in the RC camping business.
They also secured a Dealership for Vancouver Island for Hyline Trailers which are amazing, fully furnished, bumper pull, chemical free trailers built by Amish craftsmen that are like a condo on wheels.

The English’s sales motto was “Live the Rich Man’s Dream for a Working Man’s Price!” and “Grab Your Slice of Paradise!”

They attended major RV Shows and were the best attended booth at the shows.

So, in 2010, the English Family made contact with CBRE Real Estate’s RV Division  and were put in touch with CBRE’s Vice President, Michael Nissley, from Atlanta, Georgia.

Mr. English told Mr. Nissley that they did not want to sell their Resort as it had been in the Family for 30 years and was his children’s inheritance and their home, but that they would happily lease part of it to a qualified and reputable resort operator for as long a term as they needed to make it profitable for them. 

Nissley promised the English’s he would lease the upper half of their campground for enough to payout the debt to Paradigm and allow the English’s to go ahead with their RV Pad leasing program on the other half of their campground.

He agreed top be their real estate agent.  

Nissley said he had connections with a major company that had access to unlimited funding.

He also said he had ways of getting the Municipality and the Government to do what he wanted them to and Mr. English thought that this was very disturbing as Mr. Nissley was very confident and laughed about it.

Mr. Nissley said he was going to arrange a meeting with a person who was going to lease the upper campsites.  The person's name was Doug Pearce of Victoria.

Mr. English had no idea who Doug Pearce was, but said that was fine: he would meet with him.    But every time a meeting was arranged, Mr. Nissley would cancel it for some reason or another and say he was setting up another meeting.

These delays went on for over a year and a half.

During this time, the Resort started being hit with multiple arson attacks (three on one night in 2010) and another in broad daylight - this March), and the Resort water system was mysteriously demolished (September 2010), and 7 foot high chain link gates knocked to the ground, and washrooms and shop doors smashed down and vandalized in the night by persons wielding axes or hatchets. It was a terror campaign such as the English Family had only seen in movies or in war documentaries.

The above photo on the right is an actual photo of one of those arson attacks.

Pacific Rim Resort was hit with an ongoing wave of attacks that wiped out virtually all of the Resort’s infrastructure and made it impossible to operate the campground.

During this time, Mr. English and his two young children, Kim and Dylan, were forced to live in a dilapidated one room shack with no running water and a five gallon pail as a toilet for almost two years as the Resort insurance company refused to offer them coverage so they had to make formal complaints and sue the insurance company as well.

But the English Family refused to be run off their property and their home by criminals.

Then, next, after all this damage occurred, Mr. Nissley changed his tune and said that Mr. Pearce now would only buy the English’s property and not lease it.

Then, finally, Mr. Nissley let the English’s know that Mr. Pearce’s company was having its wholly owned subsidiary, Parkbridge Lifestyle Communities Inc. (Parkbridge), make an application to the Court to buy the Resort from the lender Mission / Paradigm for the amount of the debt which had escalated during the time the English’s were under attack and foreclosure.

This sale would leave  the English Family homeless and penniless with no business and their property of 30 years taken from them by force and by deceit.
Mr. Doug Pearce is the CEO of the British Columbia Investment Management Corporation in Victoria BC which manages the Pension Funds of the BC Government Employees, including the BC Court Staff who were handling the English’s Foreclosure Court Case in the courts, the Teachers, who (wonderful people) are teaching the English’s Children at Ucluelet Elementary and Secondary Schools in Ucleulet, B.C., and the Municipal Employees of the District of Tofino who, illegally and unbelievably, continually denied the English’s their Business Licence to run their campground that they have owned for 30 years and then, when Mr. English said that he would open the campground, anyhow,and they could take him to Court for doing what he was legally entitled to do, Tofino blocked off the Resort’s sewer connection illegally to put the Resort out of business.
Why, you might ask?
Simple, according to Mr. English, Tofino Municipal Employees have their Pension funds invested with Doug Peace and BCIMC and the English’s believe that, most  likely, Tricia Dixon, Braden Smith (Business Licence) and Bob Shantz (Sewer blockage) were working with Doug Pearce and Michael Nissley of Parkbridge/BCIMC and the Resort’s Lenders, Paradigm, in a conspiracy to perpetrate a massive deception upon the foreclosure Court to take the English’s Resort away from them by devious methods including the use of criminal attacks on their property and by influencing government officials to put the English Family out of business. 

The English’s firmly believe that BCIMC/Parkbridge have illegally influenced Tofino Municipal employees to put their 30 year business into insolvency by abuse of their lawful authority as public officials.
This is what Mr. Nissley was so ominously mentioning to Mr. English in 2010 when they first met.

Tofino’s Town Administrator, Braden Smith, and Tofino Mayor Perry Schmunk, who both announced their resignations and promotions to higher paying jobs in December 2012.

Was this arranged for them as their reward for services rendered?

Mr. English accuses them of participating in unlawful actions against the Pacific Rim Resort property in an obvious effort to massively reduce the value of the Resort Property.

The English Family firmly believes that they did this to allow BCIMC to take the English’s property in an essentially rigged Court Sale with improper appraisals made possible by an illegal Tofino Bylaw written by Braden Smith (which Jack English was told Smith and the mayor called “The Get Jack Bylaw” referring to Mr. English).

This Bylaw 1164 imposed huge unprecedented retroactive Development Cost Charges -DCC- charges against the Resort to attempt to massively reduce its value and make it so the English’s couldn’t open for business or get refinancing, thus allowing Parkbridge/BCIMC to force the English’s out and buy their land for less than one quarter of its value.

Ironically and unbelievably, this is the hard earned pension funds of the Teacher’s of BC that are being used for criminal purposes to wipe out the business of a local family whose children are being schooled by the same teachers whose money is being misused like this without the Teacher’s knowledge or consent that this is being done.

If Jack English is right then the British Columbia Public Service Pension Fund is out of control and is a threat to all private enterprise entrepreneurs in the province.
