notice Angela’s statement  are defamatory, libelous and, for the most part easily disproved lies. Nowhere does she seek funds or act in anything other than an ethically reprehensible manner. What further proof does the NS Department of Justice need to make them see that they have enabled a vigilante? 


I have, in my possession, two letters that Ms. Power wrote to the Danish immigration authority that reflect the level of anger and hatred Ms. Power has for me. These documents illustrate the delusions, lies, misrepresentation of facts, and conjecture that Ms. Power promotes as fact with what appear to be the express intent to defame, discredit and cause harm to my family and me.
 
But, NS Maintenance Enforcement would never allow such an inappropriate and potentially illegal behavior, would they? Certainly, the Director would be aware of the social and ethical implication of such a breech in mandate and authority? There is evidence that suggests that this government agency may not always behave appropriately, particularly in this instance, where Angela Power has an interesting history with NS Maintenance Enforcement.

Angela Power was kicked out of the program in 2014 for her interference and her efforts to influence the actions of the NS Maintenance Enforcement Program. Subsequently, Ms. Power claims to have been re-admitted to the program through extensive lobbying on her own behalf, and a review by the provincial ombudsman. Her re-admission, according to her, was conditional on her ceasing her attempts to influence and enforce, and agreeing to adhere to the rules and guidelines established for the program. I still have not received formal notice of such a re-admission or the proceedings leading up to this alleged action.

On February 25, 2016, Angela Rose Power contacted Danish Immigration. I have attached the statement she provided to Danish Authority, and the intent is clearly malicious. This document is riddled with fantasy and speculation. The outright lies, fabrication and conjecture are all presented as fact and the only truthful statements in the document are in paragraph 3.

I have attached Angela Powers February 25th correspondence to Danish Immigration and my response follows. In her statement she makes many false, accusatory, defamatory and misleading statements through a host of lies mixed with innuendo and partial truths.​​

Paragraph 1

Paragraph 6

Paragraph 5

Paragraph 1

Paragraph 2

Paragraph 4

Angela Power states in paragraph 1 that I began “a work contract at Omada Inc. on or around September 1, 2015”.

This statement is speculative and inaccurate and presented as fact without evidence or corroboration and nowhere does Angela indicate that the statements she is making are merely her own theory.

 In fact, I did not start at Omada until much later and contra to Angela’s implication, I was not on contract when I did work with Omada.


In paragraph 2, Angela Power states: “Joseph Patrick Power withheld information regarding his situation in Canada”.

This is speculation presented as a fact. Ms. Power has no idea what I disclosed or withheld but is presenting as if she is an authority.

The facts are that I disclosed everything as part of the immigration and background check process. The process to immigrate and move took almost 9 months and we had spent years planning our expat experience for reasons that have never included fear.

And, as the NS Department of Justice has pointed out in their defense of the accusations Angela Power has made against the NSDOJ, I left Canada under completely legitimate and legal terms.


Also in Paragraph 2, Angela states “He had been tried in Court for Contempt and feared conviction on this matter”.

She presumes to know me and what I feared or did not fear. We have not spoken civilly over a decade. I would suggest she has no idea what think or feel.  

 We were very actually confident that our case and evidence to discredit the insane and ongoing accusations of Angela Power were more than sufficient to ensure a dismissal of the absurd charges. I left Canada with my wife and son feeling confident that my issues were behind me.


And further in Paragraph 2, She states that I have a “Canada wide arrest warrant”.

This is an outright LIE. The warrant is clearly directed to “All Peace Officers in the Province of Nova Scotia.” Angela Power’s statement is clearly untrue. 


Next lie is in the second paragraph is when Angela states: “The judge has therefore declared that Joseph Patrick Power is a threat to the public order.”

This is a lie and misrepresentation of the facts. I was unable find anywhere that the judge stated that I was a threat to the public order.

The Judge issued a bench warrant because I failed to attend court and this is the method for her to enforce her deep desire to see me in person. Nowhere has any Justice declared me a threat to the public order and these proceedings were civil proceedings, not Criminal. 


Angela Power states: “It is my understanding that the work he is doing at Omada Inc. in Denmark requires security clearances that he no longer qualifies for.”

How exactly would Angela have any notion of what is required to do a job for a foreign company in an industry that she has less than no knowledge about? Clearly this is conjecture presented in context to further imply that I was working in some illegal manner here in Denmark.

Angela Power states: “Joseph Patrick Power applied for and received a work visa in Denmark under fraudulent conditions”.


This statement is just plain untrue and an outright lie. Any moron knows the vetting process for immigration is ‘extreme’ and invasive.

As the NS DOJ has pointed out in their arguments against Angela Power’s accusations against the Nova Scotia Department of Justice, I left Canada LEGALLY and in fact immigrated LEGALLY.


Angela poses a number of questions. In particular, “Would these crimes be considered a threat to your public order? A serious crime if committed in Denmark? Would they warrant deportation if committed in Denmark?”.

WOW! This is a gross intentional lie presented as a question. I have never been charged with any crime. I don’t even have a speeding ticket. To what crime is she specifically referring? All of our proceedings have been Civil proceedings. 

Angela stated that I am a criminal, which is untrue and defamatory. Why would she make such a statement? Clearly to further vilify me in the eyes of the reader.

On a number of past occasions, MEP has shown how they tend to operate outside of their established boundaries, but if Angela Power is telling the truth, this situation extends far beyond the grey areas and into sanctioned vigilantism. A practice of enabling and allowing potentially angry and emotionally involved ex-spouses to act with impunity is in fact vigilantism. Many divorced readers will easily see how grossly inappropriate this behavior would be. In fact, one of the mandates of the Maintenance Enforcement program is to act as an intermediary to prevent this type of behavior.

Angela Power appears to have adopted the position of immunity reflected in her statement “MEP has told me that I can enforce on my own and they will not kick me out again”. She is campaigning and promoting a mythical story, vilifying me and my family. She is misrepresenting facts and legal positions to further portray me as a monster, without apparent intent to enforce. 


​I’ve described Angela Power’s vigilante actions and demonstrate how she continues to operate with intent to extract revenge and retribution. You will                        Angela'a

Angela Power, delivering ‘justice’ through fear and intimidation from behind a mask.

Paragraph 2

Paragraph 6

Paragraph 1

Is Vigilante Justice a practice supported by Nova Scotia Maintenance Enforcement?

Angela states that there are 2 warrants for my arrest. This is correct but both appear to be Provincial in scope. She also states that one was at her instigation however, if you review the transcript of the court event, it is apparent that Angela and her counsel wanted sentencing and were NOT in favor of a warrant. Neither were her doing.


​She admits that she “called your office” admitting to further direct contact with the Danish Authority. I am merely point out that she does not constrain herself to written works of fiction. 


WOW! The whole Dominica thing. How easy is that to prove as a lie and pile of steaming excrement? And she states that I did what!!!?? Exited Denmark and re-entered how?

OK dear reader, what seems more likely? Her tale of international intrigue, or that I immigrated with my family to Denmark legally? DENMARK - the land of high taxes and socialist policy?


The opinion of Ms. Power on my employment history as a consultant is certainly interesting. She describes normal and accepted business processes for consultants as ‘layers’ of shady business practices designed to hide.  


The last thing presented in this rambling paragraph of confusing speculation is an implication that Omada, one of my past employers, is somehow in on this web of deceit. What kind of influence does she think I have over people and organizations? In fact, a large part of the reason I am no longer at Omada is because of her interference, intimidation and blackmail she used to threatened them. But we are saving that story and supporting documentation for another day. 


This set of statements is a mixture of facts mixed with speculation and fiction clearly delivered to solicit an emotional response. What is fact is that a judge decided that I owe some money. The accumulated amount is a work of creative accounting on the part of Maintenance Enforcement where they expect I pay child support for a child who has not lived with Angela for 6 years.  In addition, only in the past 2 years has she helped support our adult daughter and her education. You should have seen the look on her lawyer’s face in the courtroom when she found out Angela had not been forwarding any of the child support I had been paying for two children along to her daughter.


​The Dominica thing again. I just have to laugh. Where does this fantasy come from? Her ‘friend’ told her? Does this Friend really exist or is it a voice in her head? She had a friend, Sean Alan Forbes, telling stories at the contempt hearing and EVERY accusation this friend made was disproved in the testimony and cross examination. The “friend” that told her about Dominica seems to be about as reliable.


Yes, I would agree that she is real. But her story is certainly not! 

Paragraph 5

Paragraph 3

Angela power follows up with Danish Immigration on October 6, 2016. This letter really highlights the delusions and fantasy world in which Angela Power lives. She doubles down and expands upon her fantasy and lies presented in her original correspondence but, of a more frightening nature, are the unsubstantiated creative conspiracy theories she presents. I have to admit, I am very impressed by the creativity of the individual she describes. But, it sure as heck is not me she is describing. 

“MEP has told me that I can enforce on my own and they will not kick me out again”. This is a direct quote from an email from my ex-wife, Angela Rose Power, to me on March 9, 2017.
