This website was designed after we witnessed Sandra Singh, the Chief librarian of the Vancouver

Public Library act with bias and prejudice, and, with wilful blindness to the fact that a middle-eastern citizen was attacked, threatened and humiliated by her friend Jon Downey, who happens to be a security guard for the Vancouver Public Library.

The first incident of malice, harassment and defamation was on Friday July 15 2016. The middle-eastern citizen was on the second floor at the Vancouver Public Library on Robson street.  The middle-eastern citizen was learning video and media in order to find employment.

All of a sudden,  Jon Downey  who is one of the security guards of the Vancouver Public Library Security, approached the middle-eastern man while other patrons witnessed the incident.  The patrons were of course alarmed.

Then Jon Downey began defaming and threatening the middle-eastern man with spurious accusations.

There were many patrons in the library, some sitting very close to the middle-eastern man, while Jon Downey slandered and defamed the man in public.

After a few hours when the middle-eastern man recovered from the attack and abuse, he called and emailed Jon Downey, after Jon Downey gave him his card, but again, a second time, Jon Downey committed another act of malice and hate, which bordered on a hate crime.

When Jon Downey heard that the middle-eastern man wanted dates and times of the accusations, Jon Downey, tried to cover up by calling the police on the middle-eastern man.

The next day one of the VPD spoke to the middle-eastern man they did discover that Jon Downey was either lying or or delusional .   The police officer was so confident that the middle eastern man did not do anything wrong that the VPD officer invited the middle-eastern man to contact Jon Downey and demand that Jon Downey does not harass the middle-eastern man.  This must of made Jon Downey furious, but truth is good for the mind.

A few days later the middle-eastern man wrote a letter to Sandra Singh, the Chief Librarian, who not only engaged in stone walling and misconduct, but protected her friend, and refused to offer to cooperate when asked simple questions to obtain the facts.

What is even most shocking and bluntly unprofessional was that Sandra Singh even supported theJohn Downey Vancouver Public Library threats and harassment and lies.  She did not care to separate the lies from the truth because that would expose her and her friend Jon Downey, whom we see together in the garden on the roof, while tax payers pay for her salary and for the legal bills and lawyers, which will amount to over 30 000 dollars.

If Sandra Singh claims to have the level of a “Chief Librarian” then she should know what these concepts mean and not act reckless or be ignorant to them. Please read:

Justified true belief is a definition of knowledge that is most frequently credited to Plato and his dialogues. The concept of justified true belief states that in order to know that a given proposition is true, one must not only believe the relevant true proposition, but also have justification for doing so.


Clifford’s Principle) “It is wrong always, everywhere, and for anyone to believe anything on insufficient evidence.

We will keep you updated on the lawsuit:


In the interim contact the Library board. Will the Board Members turn a blind eye to this horrible malice, hate crime and malfeasance?  Will they allow the public to pay for the city attorney, who Jon Downey did state out loud that the city attorney will be assigned, and Jon Downey said that with a smirk and recklessness, reckless to taxpayers money and the public trust. Demand justice and an apology
