1. I, Gerry Armstrong, declare as follows.

2. Since the end of January 2004, I have lived with my wife Caroline

Letkeman in a second floor apartment at 45950 Alexander Avenue in Chilliwack, B.C., Canada.

3. I first became aware of a man named Rene Helmer when an invitation to an

open house to be held August 27, 2004 for a company called Techno-Cine was left at our

apartment door about a week before that date. The open house invitation, a true correct

copy of which is appended hereto as Exhibit A, identified Rene Helmer as Techno-Cine’s


4. Techno-Cine’s address is 45967 Alexander Avenue, across the street and

visible from our apartment, and in a position to observe our apartment and our comings

and goings. It’s a shop or office in a large concrete block commercial building containing

several shops and offices. Ever since Techno-Cine moved into this address, Caroline and

I have suspected that it was related to a Scientology organization intelligence operation

against us, and that the location was chosen to facilitate our surveillance, both visual,

audio and electronic. Scientology’s intelligence personnel or hired PIs have in the past

rented, leased or purchased properties for the purpose of getting physically close to the

organization’s targets. Obviously, renting, leasing or purchasing properties for the

purpose of getting close to their targets is a very desirable goal for any intelligence



network or service. I have been a high level target of Scientology’s intelligence

personnel, as well as the organization’s leaders, lawyers and PIs for over 23 years.

Caroline and I have been joint targets since 2001, shortly after we met. Being high level

Scientology targets affects virtually every aspect of our lives and produces a constant

awareness of threat, which we deal with as we can. We have been virtually without

monetary resources throughout this period, whereas Scientology has immense sums of

cash available and a global network of agents to target people like Caroline and me. We

are both targets because we discovered and exposed massive Scientology fraud,

organization-wide abuses, and criminal conspiracy. Scientology agents have physically

assaulted me on multiple occasions, attempted several times to have me prosecuted on

false criminal charges, published defamatory materials about me internationally,

threatened me with assassination, sued me six times, and ruined many good things in my

life utterly.

5. Some time after Techno-Cine’s open house, a man rapped on our ground-

level apartment door, and when I answered the door he introduced himself as Rene

Helmer. He said his reason for contacting us was to be neighborly and tell us that

someone had reported some people trying doors in the neighborhood to break in, and he

wanted to alert us. He wanted to know if we’d observed anything suspicious, and I told

him I’d sure keep an eye open. He pointed out his office in the building across Alexander

Avenue. He said he’d been working in Vancouver, but had visited Chilliwack, loved the



area, and decided to give it a try. He said he was in movie lighting, and built elevator

panels and other props.

6. Over the next months, Caroline and I encountered Mr. Helmer a number of

times in the vicinity of our home. Although we had no proof then of his connection to

Scientology we were always suspicious of his intentions, so we stayed friendly in our

brief interactions with him, but did not encourage contact or any relationship. Caroline

and I felt very vulnerable and violated, and talked about how the constant surveillance

made us feel imprisoned, or like Winston and Julia in Nineteen Eighty-Four. Following

Techno-Cine’s “open house,” the shop never opened, but remained closed and blacked


7. Some months after my first conversation with Mr. Helmer, he again rapped

on our door and again I talked with him. He said that he was going to be away for some

days and asked me to keep an eye on his office. He mentioned that an Owen, who rented

a space a few doors away from Mr. Helmer’s office in the same building, is a good

person, but that some other people in the building were not nice and were creating

problems. I knew that Mr. Helmer was referring to Owen Stobbe, Caroline’s cousin, who

has an auto detailing shop in the building. I told Mr. Helmer that I would keep both eyes


8. On August 9, 2005, I received an e-mail message from Mr. Helmer stating:

Date: Tue, 09 Aug 2005 23:58:00 -0700
From: Rene Helmer <renehelmer@technocine.com>



Subject: TV Show
To: Gerry Armstrong <gerry@gerryarmstrong.org>
Organization: Rene Helmer
X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2900.2527

Hello Gerry,

This is Rene Helmer, your neighbour from across the street. I've wanted to
talk to you for a couple of weeks now but we've not bumped into each other
for a while.

The reason for this e-mail is to let you know of my interest in the
circumstances you and Caroline find yourselves in, regarding scientology.
My neighbour in the next bay, Owen told me about this some months ago
as, it seems, your families are acquainted. I looked into your fight with
scientology, at that time, on the Internet and was quite fascinated by what I
found on your web sites.

You may recall that I mentioned to you once, that I have been producing
and directing a TV show, called Unique Endeavours, at our local Shaw
cable TV station. I've recently had thoughts on the possibility of doing a
show on the unique situation that you two are involved in.

Initially, my thoughts for this show ran along the lines of a David and
Goliath scenario but upon looking further at elements of your web sites, I
think that this project would be better served if it dealt with the effects of
this conflict on yourselves, personally, and how this has affected your lives.

I have a very strong interest in this matter but I'm also aware of your
personal concerns for your security and privacy and I don't mean to
jeopardize or to infringe on these concerns. I do feel that this subject could
provide a very interesting program and I can look into other outlets for the
show, in the event that it may be to "risquéé" for Shaw although I have
spoken to the the Shaw Cable Manager about your storey. Please advise me
of your thoughts on this idea. I would be pleased to meet you, to go over
any questions or concerns you may have. You can best reach me on my cell
phone at (604) 791-8858.

My best regards, Rene

Mr. Helmer in fact had never previously mentioned that he was producing or directing a

TV show, or anything about “Unique Endeavours.” This e-mail message radically



increased Caroline’s and my certainty that Mr. Helmer was working for the Scientology


9. On August 11, 2005 I sent Mr. Helmer an e-mail reply stating:

Hi Rene

Wow! Let's connect up after this weekend and talk about your ideas.
Caroline and I have a full plate through Monday. We're really interested the
possibilities, so we're looking forward to chatting with you.


Gerry & Caroline

10. On August 11, I received an e-mail message from Mr. Helmer stating:

Date: Thu, 11 Aug 2005 16:58:56 -0700
From: Rene Helmer <renehelmer@technocine.com>
Subject: Re: TV Show
To: Gerry Armstrong <gerry@gerryarmstrong.org>

Hello Gerry and Caroline,

That's great! I'm busy on Monday all day and, possibly, Tuesday as well.
Call me and tell me where and when. (604) 791-8858. I look forward to
chatting as well.

Yours, Rene

11. Caroline and I did a cursory Internet search for “Rene Helmer,” and found a

short biography on the Chilliwack Players Guild web site stating that he had started

volunteering for the Guild in September 2004. A true and correct copy of a printout of

the Players Guild web page, which also contains a photograph of the person who had



identified himself to me as Rene Helmer, is attached hereto as Exhibit B.

12. After some telephone calls between Mr. Helmer and me, Caroline and I met

with him at his request on August 23 in the lounge at the Rhombus Hotel in Chilliwack.

We sat at a table outside on a deck beside Salish Pond, a shallow man-made acre or so of

water, and we drank beer and talked for several minutes. Caroline and I had Old Yale

IPA, Mr. Helmer had a couple of Coronas, I believe with a slice. He said that he had

done other interviews or shoots at that spot. I suspected that Mr. Helmer had set up the

meeting there so he or whoever else he was working with could secretly record us. He

told us he had brought video equipment with him in case the meeting developed that way,

and he showed us what appeared to be a video camera case on the floor beside him.

13. Very early in the conversation, I asked him about his relationship with

Scientology. He said that he had been involved in the 1970's, and mentioned specifically

1975. Before this, Mr. Helmer had never said anything about a connection to Scientology

in any of our communications. My relationship with Scientology forces me to ask any

people who seek to have a relationship with me about any relationship they have with

Scientology. Mr. Helmer said he had even worked for the GO back then, doing volunteer

work in PR. I asked him where he had been working for the organization and he said

Ottawa and Toronto. He protested that it was all so long ago, he could hardly remember

anything. The one thing he remembered was a time he was sent to get carbon paper late

at night after all the stores were closed, because the GO’s reports had to be typed with



multiple carbon copies, and they didn’t have any. He said, as if searching his memory,

that they had a term for that in Scientology. I volunteered, “Making it go right,” and he

said that that was it, and we all laughed. I asked him who the head of the GO in Canada

was then, and he said he couldn’t remember. I asked about Ray and Hilarie Rockl, two

Scientologists I’d known in Vancouver in 1969 and 1970, and who became top officials

within the GO in Canada, and Mr. Helmer gave a noncommittal answer, which I didn’t

ask him to clarify. The GO was the “Guardian’s Office,” Scientology’s arm that during

the 1960's and 70's waged its offensive war against “enemies,” on PR, legal and

intelligence channels. Shortly after present Scientology head David Miscavige took over

the Guardian’s Office in the early 1980's, he restructured the unit controlling organization

PR, legal and intelligence activities and incorporated it as Religious Technology Center

(RTC). Miscavige holds the position in RTC of Chairman of the Board. RTC’s central

control of PR, legal and intelligence activities within the entire Scientology enterprise is

effectuated through the Office of Special Affairs (OSA). OSA personnel are posted in

every Scientology “Church”around the world including the Vancouver organization.

14. Because Mr. Helmer had already told me months ago that he had moved

from Vancouver to Chilliwack to set up Techno-Cine, I asked him if he had also been at

the Vancouver Scientology organization. He said that he had, and then a few moments

later appeared to have a sudden realization, and stated that he was pretty sure that he had

known Caroline in Vancouver. She had gotten into Scientology in Vancouver in 1975,



but didn’t have a clear memory of Mr. Helmer in the Vancouver organization at that time.

15. I asked him how far he had gotten up the “Bridge,” which is what

Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard called, and Scientologists call, the organization’s

“Classification, Gradation and Awareness Chart.” The chart lists about 30 grades or

levels of ability that Hubbard and the organization promised and sold to their customers.

The grades or levels proceed upward from ordinary human beings or Homo sapiens,

which Scientologists call “wogs,” through “Clear,” which Scientologists teach is a new

superior race called “Homo novis,” to the state of “Operating Thetan” or “OT, a state of

staggering intellect, super powers and total freedom. Mr. Helmer said that he had had

about five or six “intensives,” which are twelve and a half hour blocks of Scientology’s

“auditing,” the costly psychotherapy by which Scientologists move “up the Bridge.” Mr.

Helmer thus claimed he’d had a total of about seventy-five hours of auditing, whereas, by

way of comparison, I had something over a thousand hours of auditing during the 1970's.

I asked him why he had left Scientology and he said that he couldn’t stand being

regimented the way the organization demanded, that he’d been in the military before

Scientology and had had enough of that kind of control. The impression Mr. Helmer

conveyed in all he said was that his relationship with Scientology ended in the 1970's and

that thereafter he had no further relationship with the organization.

16. Caroline, I believe, said something about the “Suppressive

Person”doctrine, or “SP” doctrine, which is integral to all of Scientology, and Mr. Helmer



appeared to not understand the concept. He then said that he had been to our web site,

referring to the Suppressive Person Defense League (SPDL) web site, found at

http://www.suppressiveperson.org/, but said that he had not understood what it said. He

appeared much more interested in the concept in Scientology that founder Hubbard called

“Fair Game.” This is the principle, policies and practices governing the organization’s

war on its “enemies” such as Caroline and I. Scientology has been playing a semantic

game in the legal arena and in the media for almost forty years, even as it fair games its

enemies, claiming that “Fair Game” was “cancelled.” My experiences with Scientology

prove that Fair Game is still the way the organization prosecutes its war, and that the

claimed cancellation of Fair Game is a fraud. Mr. Helmer referred to Fair Game as if it

was a term he didn’t know, but which he had found on my web site as if I invented it. I

told him a little bit of what I knew about the subject.

17. Mr. Helmer called the show he had in mind for Caroline and me a “human

interest story,” a term he used a number of times. I didn’t push Mr. Helmer to define

“human interest,” or to provide any specifics or details of his idea for the videotaping. He

simply repeated what he’d said in his first e-mail message, that he wanted to focus on the

effects of our battle with Scientology on our personal lives. He said that we seem like

pretty happy people, and that we smiled and laughed a lot. I assured him that under our

happy demeanor we were very concerned, and we felt extremely vulnerable to

Scientology covert or even violent ops. I said that even though one operative may be a



decent person, and may even have been put in place because he is a decent person, and

merely reports back to his handlers about his target’s movements, he has no control over

what evil his handlers will do with his information.

18. Mr. Helmer said that Shaw Cable, which he had mentioned in his first e-

mail message he’d talked to about Caroline’s and my story, would not be involved in the

project because Scientology is too controversial. He said he had discussed us, and his

human interest story idea about us with a Bruce Atkinson, the manager at Shaw in

Chilliwack, and that it was Mr. Atkinson who said that Scientology is too controversial.

Mr. Helmer said that he also has a contact in public relations in Edmonton with whom he

discussed the project, and that this guy was interested and could be a connection to a

number of media outlets.

19. I brought up my legal situation with Scientology, and Mr. Helmer said that

he is not trained in legal and had not read all the documents relating to my legal battles,

but saw they were extensive. He said that his lack of understanding of legal documents is

a reason why he wants to do a human interest story. Nevertheless, I did sketch out my

legal situation for him. I explained that the Scientology cultists are trying to enforce a

contract that they got by threat and fraud, and which requires that every time I mention

this “religion,” such as the coversation I was having right there with him, I pay them fifty

thousand dollars. I said that meanwhile the organization runs intel ops on us, black PRs

us around the world, and threatens our existence. “Black PR” is the term Hubbard used



for Scientology’s policy and practice of destroying a target’s credibility, reputation,

relationships, livelihood and life with the organized, broad and relentless overt and covert

dissemination of defamatory material about the target. I told Mr. Helmer that the

Scientologists are also still trying to get me jailed for nothing more than defending myself

against their attacks and relating my religious experiences and beliefs. I explained that

Scientology had filed an appeal from a judgment in California, and that oral argument in

the Court of Appeal in San Francisco would be probably in late September. I said there

very well may be a media flurry around the time, and suggested that perhaps the timing

could be good for Mr. Helmer’s project. I said that I would send him the URLs for the

legal documents I thought he should read to understand how my legal situation could

relate to the project he proposed.

20. I asked Mr. Helmer about ownership of the video he wanted to shoot of us

and he said that he would own it. I asked him if he had any release for me to sign and he

said he didn’t. I asked him if he had a lawyer who could prepare any needed documents

and he said he didn’t. I was very aware that Scientology could edit or alter video footage

of me, which the organization has done in the past, to attack or defame me in litigation

and in the media. I was also aware that Mr. Helmer was very happy to lie to entrap us,

and would probably lie just as happily under oath to harm us in the legal arena. I was also

concerned that through Mr. Helmer Scientology could make some claim of ownership of

my story, and thus create a “legal” right to tie me up in intellectual property litigation,



suppress my story, and prevent it from being told at all. I am aware that my story has

considerable commercial value, as well as immeasurable value as pure religious

expression and as physical defense.

21. We parted with the agreement that Mr. Helmer would next contact his

friend in PR in Edmonton to see what real interest there was, and would write up some

questions for us to think about. The next step I would take would be to send Mr. Helmer

the URLs for the legal documents I thought he should read and understand.

22. Following our meeting with Mr. Helmer, Caroline and I did an Internet

Whois search for the technocine.com domain. The Whois search result, a true and correct

copy of the printout of which is appended hereto as Exhibit C, gave the address of the

domain registrant as 11519 - 142nd Str., Surrey, B.C. V3R 3L2, Canada. The search

result also listed the administrative contact as “Philip Helmer” at the same address, with

phone number 604-582-0193, and e-mail address helmerp@direct.ca.

23. We did an Internet search for the name “Philip Helmer,” and “Phil

Helmer,”and found that a Phil Helmer of Vancouver is listed as Scientology Clear No.

12,273 in a webbed organization publication “The Auditor” from April 1979. We found a

Phil Helmer listed as having been on board the Scientology ship “Freewinds” in 1989

during her maiden voyage, and having completed a course on board called the “Route to

Infinity Course.” We found a Phil R. Helmer listed as a “Sponsor” of the International

Association of Scientologists (IAS) in a webbed organization publication “Impact” in



1998, and listed as an IAS “Crusader” in “Impact” in 2000. A Sponsor is a person who

donates five thousand dollars to the IAS, and a Crusader donates ten thousand dollars.

One of the functions of the IAS is to fund legal and extra-legal attacks on Scientology’s

victims and targets such as Caroline and I.

24. Caroline and I did an Internet search for the address of Philip Helmer as

administrative contact for Techno-Cine, “11519 - 142nd Str., Surrey, B.C. V3R 3L2,”

and discovered it in a listing for Robert and Gail Spick in the webbed 2001 World

Institute of Scientology Enterprises (WISE) Directory, which states:

Robert and Gail Spick
Conco Electrical
11519 142nd St.
Surrey, BC V3R 3L2
Tel. (1) 604-582-1948

Another entry in the webbed 2001 WISE Directory for Conco states:

Ray and Hilarie Rockl
Conco Electrical Services
125 -1085 East Kent Ave.
Vancouver, BC V5X 4V9
Tel (1) 604-322-5734

The Surrey address also appears in the webbed 2004 WISE Director in a listing which


Robert Spick
Robert Spick & Associates



11519 142nd St.
Surrey, BC V3R 3L2
Tel +1 604-582-1948

Another entry in the webbed 2004 WISE Directory states:

Ray & Hilarie RockI
Conco Electrical Services
123 - 1085 East Kent Ave.
Vancouver, BC V5X 4V9
Tel +1 604-322-5734

WISE is a component of the Scientology enterprise that exerts organization control in

commercial companies run by Scientologists, requires fees from these companies, and

uses them to spread Scientology “technology” and influence in the commercial realm.

25. An Internet search for “Robert Spick” showed that he was on board the

“Freewinds” in 1999 and did a course called the “Freewinds OT Bridge Consultant

Course;” and that in 2002 he was audited at Scientology’s Clearwater, Florida base and

attained the grade called “ARC Straightwire Expanded.”

26. An Internet search for “Gail Spick” obtained only the 2001 WISE Directory

listing, but a search for “Gale Spick” showed that she was on board the “Freewinds” in

2000 and did the “Route to Infinity Course;” that in 2001 she is listed in Scientology’s

webbed publication “Impact” as an IAS “Crusader;” that she is currently a director of

Scientology’s Heritage 3r's School Society; and that she is Scientology’s contact for its

ongoing “World Literacy Crusade.”



27. An Internet search for “Ray Rockl”and “Raymond Rockl” showed that he

was listed on the IAS “Honor Roll” in 1991, meaning he had donated twenty thousand

dollars or had gotten twenty people to each donate to the IAS; that he did the “State of

Man Congress Course” on the “Freewinds” in 1999; that he did the “Responsibility and

the State of OT” on the “Freewinds” in 2000; that he did the “Command of Theta

Course”and “New OT VIII - Truth Revealed” on the “Freewinds” in 2003; and that he is

listed in Scientology’s webbed publication “Cornerstone Newsletter” in July 2004 as a

“Cornerstone Club Member,” meaning he had donated thirty-five thousand dollars to the

building fund for Scientology’s “Super Power Building” in Clearwater, Florida;

28. An Internet search for “Hilarie Rockl”showed that she was listed as an IAS

“Sponsor” in 1993; that she did the “Saint Hill Special Briefing Course”at the Clearwater

Scientology base in 1996; that she did the “Solo Auditor Certainty Course” in Clearwater

in 1997; that she did the “State of Man Congress Course” on the “Freewinds” in 1999;

that she did the “Responsibility and the State of OT” on the “Freewinds” in 2000; that she

did the “Command of Theta Course” on the “Freewinds” in 2003; and that she is currently

listed as the WISE “Charter Committee” representative in Vancouver, meaning she has an

investigatory and supervisory role in WISE businesses.

29. On August 25, I sent Mr. Helmer an e-mail message stating:

Hi Rene

Quite a preliminary meeting! Old Yale IPA I think is the only wonder still
standing out of the Big Seven.

I'd suggest these documents for understanding our legal situation



1. 1984 LA Superior Court decision.

2. The 1986 "contract" with the cult that has been the subject of five

enforcement lawsuits.

3. My respondent's brief and opposition to writ petition, both filed in the

appeal Scientology took from the 2004 Marin County judgment.


You should be aware of potential enforcement of the "contract" against you
. And you should know what my position regarding the "contract" and my
lawful rights is as stated in my two appellate briefs. I'm obviously not a
lawyer, so the language is pretty simple.

Hope this helps.

Hello Gerry & Caroline,

Thank you for the information. I just arrived back in the "Wack" and will go
over this. Your caution is noted and thank you. I'll call you on Sunday
morning to see if we can't get together, even briefly. My out of town work

was much more extensive than I thought so I apologize for the last minute

31. Mr. Helmer and I spoke on Sunday morning, August 28, and agreed to meet

for coffee. He suggested the Starbucks shop in downtown Chilliwack, and Caroline and I

met him there as he requested. After some small talk about his weekend in Victoria,

B.C. and having high tea at the Empress Hotel and how much he loved it, I mentioned

he’d said he wanted to get together even if briefly, and asked him what news he had. He

said he’d spoken with his contact in Edmonton, who is in PR but has connections to

major media, and his contact had said that the reason media weren’t touching Scientology

stories, and we were having so much trouble getting our story told, was because the media

is bored with anything to do with Scientology. He said something about our being

concerned about why media weren’t touching Scientology stories and us wondering why,

neither of which facts were true at all. I told Mr. Helmer that he may have already

mentioned the name of his contact in Edmonton, but in any case could he tell me again,

and he said “Ed Burton.” I confirmed with Mr. Helmer that it was Mr. Burton who said

that the media were bored with Scientology, and confirmed that that was what Mr. Burton




32. Mr. Helmer said that what Mr. Burton and he agreed to was to make a

“teaser,” not the full production but a sample of what we would say. He said that Mr.

Burton would take a look at the teaser, and if he was interested he’d send a professional

crew to do the show and that Mr. Helmer would be out of the picture. He said that he had

a list of questions and held out a sheet of paper with a list on it. I was concerned about

putting my fingerprints on the paper, but Caroline accepted the paper from him. Glancing

at the questions, Caroline said they were for me, and I took the paper from her. I read the

questions, and then motioned to put the list in the folder I was carrying. Mr. Helmer

reached for the paper and indicated that I couldn’t keep it, but took it from me, folded it

and stuck it in his dayplanner. He said that he would e-mail the questions to me, and he

said that we could add any questions we wanted.

33. Mr. Helmer said at one point that the question that comes to his mind

is, “Why if we’re afraid of Scientology why do we have our address and phone number

on the Internet?” He said that Mr. Burton asked the same thing, and he repeated the

question. I explained that because of my legal situation with the Scientology cult I must

have an address that is public, and we do not have the resources to drop out of sight

beyond where Scientology can easily look and find us. I told him that it’s an intelligence

decision as much as anything, and having our address and phone number known or

unknown makes us equally vulnerable, and that it is as scary as hell knowing that even



though our address is known the people running Scientology still want to watch our

comings and goings and still mean us harm. I said that the threat would only end when

David Miscavige is sitting where Mr. Helmer was sitting.

34. He said that he had not read the legal documents I referred him to, and

grimaced something about reading legal documents made him crazy. He said that his

motivation was to make a little money and maybe make a name for himself. He said he

had no axe to grind, seeming to imply that Caroline and I did. We parted with the

understanding we’d be in touch and Mr. Helmer would send the questions.

35. On August 29, Mr. Helmer sent me an e-mail message stating:

Hi Gerry and Caroline,
Here's the questions I promised you. Please feel free to come up with some
of your own for this "teaser".

As I mentioned to you, I'm out of Chilliwack for a couple of days and hope
to be back Wednesday or, at the latest, Thursday. I'd like to shoot the teaser
on Thursday or Friday, if that suits your schedule. I'll call you from
Vancouver when I'm more sure of my schedule.

Have a good week.



Best, Rene

36. Attached to Mr. Helmer’s e-mail message was a document entitled

“Questions” listing the following seventeen:

What was your background prior to scientology? There’s reference to UBC.
How long were you involved and what prompted you to leave that group?
What were the effects of belonging to the group in relationships with your
What other personal costs were there?
Has there been any effects regarding employment?
How do you support yourselves and your activities?
Do you find your Christian faith supports you through the difficulties you

What have been the monetary costs in your legal battles with scientology?
Are there any court judgements against you in Canada?
What attempts have been made on your life?
Have there been any problems for you here in Chilliwack?

Do you believe that your efforts are having an effect on scientology?
What do you see yourself doing in the future? What would you be doing if
not this?
Do you and Caroline create and maintain your web sites?

37. On August 31, Mr. Helmer left a message on our telephone answering

machine stating:

Hi folks, it's ah, Rene Helmer calling here. It's about ah, 10, almost 10:30
Wednesday morning.

I just wanted to touch base. I've uh, I'm in some unfortunate circumstances.
I'm going to have to delay our shoot until next week. Um, just this project's
taking a little more than we thought here. If this poses a problem or you got
any questions please feel free to give me a call. Um, we'll work something



else out. My apologies, I try not to do this but ah give me a call soon as --
Talk to you later Bye bye.

38. Mr. Helmer and I have spoken by telephone over the past few days and

have agreed to meet this afternoon at 4:00 P.M. in the Rhombus Lounge. I expect to give

Mr. Helmer a copy of this declaration at that time.

I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct.

Executed this fifth day of September, 2005 in Chilliwack, B.C.
