    I have to agree with Caswell……………..look how these morons for ministers are embarrassing Barbados.

    Look how she is dissing the PM………….laughing at the way he handled Chris and the sending home of 3000 workers……..he is a lawyer???? She only now realise the beasts with whom she is dealing.

    She thought Dennis and Chris had the power but she now realise that only Freundel has the power. We on BU are worried to death about the effect this plant would have on our environment and all she cares about is getting her cut.

    Lady, the PM is up in Canada….find him and tell him you have bills to pay otherwise you may get evicted so he has to wake up and give permission for me to sell Cahill Barbados. (sarcasm) The woman now has a new start date……November. Look if you cannot find Dennis, call DLP headquarters in George Street and ask for his cell number.

    This whole deal is clothed in corruption and sleaze………

    Why does Dennis and Chris names always come up?????

    What’s with this giving David Estwick 6-8 million? Why is money being passed around in ministers’ names?

    Lord have mercy on Barbados….when these morons are kicked out, we will no longer have a country!

    Dear Ms Cowan, not all persons in Barbados can be bought or are willing to rob the taxpayers. Unfortunately Denis, Darcy, Chris and Bjerkham did not tell you that bajans are socially restyled and very neck savvy. Bajans are tired of widespread corruption.Denis Lowe will not answer your calls for he is wishing he is dead for the kitchen hot as hell.

    Here is what may possibly play out.
    1) Prime Minister fires ministers and calls early elections, we know he too selfish to take such action for power is sweet.
    2) Allow you to proceed and face civil disobedience which will make 1937 look like kids gloves especially with so many restless youth unemployed.
    3) Do not approve Cahill Energy Barbados.

    Let the old man explain a few rhinos to you so that you Dufuses can understand clearly what will happen before you lot de it office.

    You said earlier ” You guys are in the process of trying to destroy the individula Clare Cowan, But how does that removed or void the goal of the govt efforts on having the WTE plant built in barbados u might succeed in killing a messenger but the message and the goals remain the same cognizant of the fact that there are others with similar interest in mind to engage govt in building a WTE..”

    1) Clare is the first casualty end of that story.
    2) The second casualty is not a single casualty its is a series of casualties ensuing from this single one. I will elaborate and your tiefing colleagues will confirm as Pat confirmed that the cell phone number was/is Claire’s. The “Perfect Storm” speaks to a configuration of suck proportions that anyone or anything in its path is unfortunately going to be a casualty. Clare Cowan has, in one sweep, done what no opposition crafted marches along Broad Street could do, DESTROY THE CREDIBILITY OF THE DEMOCRATIC LABOUR PARTY ON THE WORLD STAGE!!!

    For the WTE or any other DLP led initiative to proceed and access any funding in the climate of “clare and clear corruption” and the blatant “administrative impropriety” of the ministers of this government, well that is not only proving to be impossible but, as is being confirmed by the prolific knee jerk taxes being propagated, becoming an unmanageable construct for your government.

    You are an outlier, a wannabe who seeks to give the impression that you are “in the know” but the mere fact that you come here, note that I did not say are allowed to come here, and sound off in your misdirection mission speaks volumes.

    Wunna fear this specific blog more than any other social commentary threat for whereas you can decimate the BLP reporting lies Nation newspaper through contrived court cases, poor Roy Morris and Sankey Price, there is no such delimiter for this cyber blog which end up on the desk of every astute investment agency and development agency in the Barbadian Investor Stratosphere.

    In an international climate of fired World Bank leaders and extradited FIFA officers, the international donor and financing communities are loathe to touch anything that is dirty and right now Barbados is soft hobby but I could be wrong, ask Darcy and Chris…

She did not honour her commitment and therefore they are acting on the security”.

    I originally thought the same thing; but am not so sure now.

    It was in March 2014 that Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs Chris Sinckler made the announcement in the House of Assembly during his near three-hour introduction of the 2014-2015 Estimates Of Revenue And Expenditure, that Barbados had finally signed off on the much discussed multimillion-dollar state of the art plasma gasification waste-to-energy project set for Vaucluse in St Thomas.

    He stated “A major international energy company out of Canada is proposing and will invest in Barbados at least a minimum of US$240 million with the potential to raise it to US$300 [million], and it portends massive spin-offs in the economy”

    I am assuming that the sign-off in March 2014 would have included the MOU, the PPA and the IA.

    If it was only the MOU that had been signed in March 2014, surely the PM would not have allowed the PPA and the IA to be signed.

    The $1,500,00 mortgage to Ridgemount FS Ltd, was registered November 27, 2015. and Ridgemount was incorporated November 25, 2014.

    Alex Iscoe, the Director of Ridgemount is/was an investment banker who appears to come from a well-to-do background, having attended Upper Canada College.

    I think that Alex Iscoe simply saw the desperate MECC as an opportunity to make a high risk/high yield (17%) loan secured by a second mortgage on the property for which MECC had paid $6,524,245, and was subject to a first mortgage for $4,000.000.

    You may be correct about the purpose of the $1,500,000 charge, but it was registered and (presumably)advanced months after the original signing of the agreement(s).

    BTW – your moniker is certainly appropriate to the matter.

    “Ridgemount FS was clearly set up as an SPV specifically for the mortage /share agreement only our sophisticated CEO was either desperate for funding or had to pay off the maturing second mortgage which she didwith $800k leaving 700k to service the first mortgage with home trust ….”

    I am not a lawyer, but it is my understanding that had there been an earlier second mortgage registered on 4803 50 Yorkville a title search would record the earlier Charge and the Discharge. A current title search records only the $4,000,000 first to Home Trust Company registered on May 17, 2013 (the date title was transferred to MECC) and the $1,500,000 second to Ridgemount registered on November 27, 2014.

    Just curious about your statement that MECC “had to pay off the maturing second mortgage which she didwith $800k”.

    Sorry to be so long getting to you about your questions about MECCs Income Tax Returns

    De ole man really is a picky ole fart.

    This old man is no income tax expert or income tax preparer, just an income tax payer.

    But I will try to help.

    Based on two of the documents it is clear the 2013 Tax Year return was prepared and submitted electronically by by SB Partners LLC, formed in 1974. See their website http://www.sbpartners.ca/about/. They certainly look legit.

    As the 2014 tax year documents do not include any documents from the return submitted, just the Notice of Assessment with summary data, we do not have a clue as to who prepared it.

    The date 7/3/2015 at the bottom of the 2013 Assessment – May 12, 2014, is the date the document was printed from the CRA website by MECC or someone who was able to access her files. Same with the 2014 Notice of Assessment.

    All of the forms appear to be electronic documents.

    Based on the scant information I have able to dig up (Google) about her background back to the 1990s, I am pretty sure she is Canadian. The Information Relating to Immigrants and Emigrants form in her 2013 return showing date of arrival 2013-05-17 may be the date she returned from UK setting up this Guernsey scheme. The date that title to the condo was transferred to MECC also is 2013-05-17.

    She seems to be filing on time. The date on the last page of her 2013 return, the one showing Balance Due on Line 485 is 2014-04-26, four days before the April 30 filing deadline.

    We do not have a detailed breakdown of her 2014 income, but it is interesting to compare her income in the two years.

    In 2013 she reported Total Income of $78,741, comprised of dividends of $2,184, Interest and other investment income of $22,156, Capital Gains of 9,535, and $44,915 from Registered Retirement Savings Plan withdrawals. No employment income reported.

    Apparently she needed to cash in her RRSPs for her cash flow needs in 2013, and probably thought that the big payoff from Cahill Barbados would adequately provide for her retirement needs.

    The the $9,191.22 shown in her 2013 return as Income Tax Deducted, is likely the income tax deducted from the $44,915 RRSP withdrawal.

    We do not have a breakdown of the $130, 206 Total Income in 2014; but that there was $35,104 deducted by a payer suggests the bulk of her income was from employment income – from Cahill? The balance paid on filing, would be the tax on dividends and interest and other income and capital gains.

    In November 2014 she also had the proceeds of the $1,500,000 2nd mortgage on the condo for her cash flow needs.

    Now that MECC “has been abandoned by the current administration and that this Cahill WTE project is DEAD” and “She is being left to drown in the quagmire that she has created” the woman soon won’t have her residence from which to scam others.

    And has left others struggling to escape the quagmire.

    To answer your question as another poster already stated, Cowan had a second mortgage with a company called Cameron Stephens Mortgage Company for 800k Canadian. this mortgage was in between the home trust mortgage and the Ridgemont mortgage. she used 800k of the 1.5m she got from Ridgemont to pay them in full because she thought they were ripping her off in interest. I hope this clears up your confusion.

    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    You quote Minister Sinckler as stating in Parliament, “A major international energy company out of Canada…..” Now if he really said that was he misleading Parliament? We know that Cahill is not an energy company and we know it definitely is not major company. It has absolutely no track record of doing anything, far less being involved in energy. If he was not misleading then was it a case of ignorance and lack of due diligence by him and his Ministry and fellow Ministers and the Cabinet. Whichever it is, it’s a sad and reflection on our Government.

    “If Clare is from a Commonwealth jurisdiction she ought reasonably have know that projects cannot start unless approval is received from the planning authorities…so if she has not done her due diligence why should she or anybody else be compensated?”

    Last time I looked Canada was still in the Commonwealth.

    And clearly she is not the only one(s) who did not do their due diligence, so why should they get to keep their (Minister) jobs

    I shall be reverting to homing pigeons and smoke signals from the pilot Assification Plant to be located at the Oliver Messels Plantation in St James

    I would have affixed my seal but you had recently said that the two CCs so close together would make people think that I was Clare Cowan

    I think though that your comment that they looked like the two halves a botsie would also have hastened my retracting that seal.

    Oh and do remember that we will have to speak during daylight hours, because reading smoke signals is not possible at night and has been prohibited by the Ministry of Health by John Whisper Boyce

    Mnister Lowe is quoted in the BGIS release a saying:
    “What we have before us is a proposed project. Once this proposed project meets the requirements of the Environmental Protection Department, the Town and Country Development Planning Office, the Ministry of Transport and Works, the Department of Emergency Management, the execution of two town hall meetings, which has been done,……”

    Is he delusional? What two Town Hall Meetings? When? Where? The two meetings held so far by Cahill were described by Cahill as “open houses”. Town Hall Meetings mandated by Town Planning are held after the preparation of an EIA and the EIA is made available to the public before the Town Hall Meeting is held.

    Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. An acquaintance has told me that she has been calling one of your Ministers for over a month and he will not return her calls, so it is good to know I will be investing with someone who is investor friendly.

    With a couple of exceptions, those are asstounding assets in your portfolio.

    That Jen Selter asset is outstanding, but I bet if you looked round you could probably find 10 assets that are better.

    Here is an update on the Ridgemount Statement of Claim.

    In the Statement of Claim dated September 3, 2015, Ridgemount FS Ltd, claims possession of the property, Unit 4803, 50 Yorkville Ave. Toronto, occupied by MECC, on a $1,500,000 second mortgage dated and registered against the property dated November 27, 2014, as # AT3751569. Interest was payable monthly. The last payment (principal and interest) was due on November 1, 2015. Ridgemount claims the default in payment of principal and interest occurred on January 1, 2015, and at the date of the Claim the amount due, including principal, interest fees and legal costs, is $1,584,565.

    On October 21, 2015 a Statement of Defence and Counterclaim was issued on behalf of MECC by Ricketts Harris LLP, and filed in the Ontario Superior court of Justice on October 30, 2015.

    In the Statement of Defence and Counterclaim, MECC states that the second mortgage was granted as a part of a larger transaction, to obtain necessary funding for a company she owns and controls (Goldcare Limited) to complete the sale (the Cahill Sale) of the shares of a subsidiary, Cahill Energy Barbados Limited. MECC states that she directed the conveyance of shares of Goldcare owned by her to a company, RCWT Inc. , related to Ridgemount as required and directed by the principals of Rigemount as a condition of providing the mortgage advance.

    MECC states the Goldcare shares transferred (to RCWT) were, and are entitled to share in the proceeds of the Cahill Sale. The shares were valued at CAN$700,000, and are expected to increase significantly by the time of closing of the Cahill Sale, scheduled to take place before the end of 2015.

    MECC further states the shares (of Goldcare) were conveyed on the basis that interest payments might be missed but on the understanding that:
    – Proceeds from the transaction would be available to MECC from the sale of the property (unit 4803) and the closing of the Cahill Sale to discharge the mortgage and cover all the outstanding payments
    – Ridgemount would be made whole by receiving proceeds from the shares
    – Proceeds of the Cahill Sale would provide more than enough to RCWT and the principals of Ridgemount to compensate for any risks, costs, and outstanding payments.

    MECC also states it was an understanding of the parties that in consideration of the shares it (Ridgemount) would not take any enforcement action on the mortgage for any default until 2016.

    MECC also states that the amounts by which the mortgage is claimed to be in default are incorrect and that the interest (and fees) claimed by Ridgemount is unenforceable as illegal and criminal, in that it exceeds 60% per annum.

    And the property, unit 4803, has been listed for sale at a price that will pay off Ridgemount’s second mortgage, and it is predicted there will be a satisfactory offer made and accepted within the next 90 days; the action is ill conceived at this time and premature, and MECC asks that the action be dismissed with costs

    The Counterclaim against Ridegemount and RCWT is for the conveyance of the shares of Goldcare back to MECC, and costs and such further relief as the Honourable Court sees just.

    In DD’s view, the Defence and Counterclaim, is simply a delaying tactic by MECC to buy her some time until she gets the big payoff when she unloads the GOB contracts to an unwitting investor.

    The interesting part is this in the Statement of Defence “The Goldcare shares transferred concurrently with the granting of the mortgage were, and are, entitled to share in the proceeds of the Cahill Sale.’

    So if Goldcare is entitled to share in the proceeds of the Cahill Sale,: what is Goldcare’s share, and with whom is the proceeds to be shared – other Canadian, UK or Barbadian investors?

    Here is history of the condo property Unit 4803 at 50 Yorkville Avenue (Four Seasons Residences) Toronto, registered in the name of Marie Elizabeth Clare Cowan.

    The property, unit 4803, 50 Yorkville , was purchased by MECC for CDN $6,524,245, closing on May 17, 2013.

    On May 17, 2013, two mortgages were registered; a first for $4,000,000 to Home Trust Company, and a second to Cameron Stephens Financial Corp (for $800,000?).

    On November 27, 2014, a new second mortgage for $1,500,000, was registered in favour of Ridgemount FS Ltd., and the Cameron Stephens mortgage was discharged/deleted.

    The Ridgemount mortgage was probably advanced on the basis of an appraisal or valuation of somewhere in the $7,000,000 range.

    The property was listed for sale for CDN$6,988,000 on a contract dated January 28, 2015, with an expiry date of June 15, 2015.

    The property was re-listed for sale on a contract dated July 3, 2015, for CDN$6,800,000, with an expiry date of December 15, 2015, Toronto Real Estate Board # C3250784.

    In an email dated Septenber 4, 2015, from Clare to Neeta Chiryal (at TW) and copied to Dominic,, Clare explains that she has reduced the asking price for the condo to CDN $6,380.000 to make it competitive for a quick sale, at which “there will be just barely enough to cover Liz”.

    On September 17, 2015, the asking price was reduced to $5,998,000..

    Now, two months later, it has not sold; so $5,998,000 is obviously still too high.

    In the circumstances, it appears the principals at Ridgemount were not “rather ruthless fellows” in requiring additional security (the Goldcare shares); but are simply high risk lenders (loan sharks) who were shoring up their security before advancing, and now want their money back.

    Now, since the price is clearly going to have to be reduced further to, say $5,500,000, to find a buyer, Ridgemount will not be “made whole” from the sale of 4803, and will have to rely on the Goldcare shares conveyed/transferred to RCWT to get its money back.

    And Liz Spencer is SOL.

    It will be interesting to see how investment banker Alex Iscoe, who controls Ridgemount and RCWT, and now apparently Goldcare, deals with GOB.

    GOB will now be dealing with a far more sophisticated counter party.

    Interesting interpretations. You will note a similar property in the same building is offered by the same realtor in the high 6’s. The challenge is that demand in this price bracket is minimal. The taxes and monthly fees are not.
    You assume that shares in Goldcare “have value”?
    Ridgemount wants cash. With a Dec 15 date looming, the realtors (who are also sharks) will be circling, for the lowest priced property in its range is prey for all. The MECC condo is already fire sale priced, by Toronto standards.

    Fire sale price?

    Not so sure.

    Asking $5,988,000 = $1,750/sq ft

    Have a look at this site

    http://condos.ca/toronto/four-seasons-private-residences-50-yorkville-ave-55-scollard-st?gclid=CjwKEAiAvauyBRDwuYf3qNyXmW4SJACX9-fXjA8dVlfMDelKQfdzLCOc6tWt3NCHllCwYZzWKrpzoxoC6Ubw_wcB

    Says average price per square foot at Four Seasons Private Residences (50 Yorkville) is $1,165. 4803 is 3,422 sq. ft., so at $1,165 its price should be about $4,000,000, which will just cover the Home Trust first if there it is not in arrears.

    Also says prices at 50 Yorkville are down 8% year over year.

    Do not know about arrears on mortgage #1 – Home Trust – but gotta think it is in arrears. Monthly payments of about $16,000 add up in a hurray.

    Interesting too that Home Trust recently terminated a bunch of the brokers who send them mortgage prospects for falsifying (overstating) borrowers’ income.

    That building DD has a lot of snob appeal. The sf prices get dictated by floor, as the higher floors have the exterior balconies the lower ones do not. Hence one cannot extrapolate a value on the 10th flr and apply to the 48th.
    I can only find 3 sales in 2015 and all were on the lower floors.
    MECC’s comment about wealthy parents dropping off kids and buying a lil place for themselves is true, just not in this building LOL

    Just read a story in Toronto Star that explains why the condo, Unit 4803 has not sold.

    http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2015/11/19/housing-market-adapts-to-some-uneasy-numbers-4-and-13.html

    “The word for 4 in Mandarin and Cantonese is alarmingly similar to the pronunciation of “death.””

    So it is not that the price is wrong; but rather that the unit number starts with 4.

    Is it any wonder that the wealthy Chinese investors who were being counted on to buy 4803 as a 3,400 sq ft pad for their children to live in while studying in Toronto, are not snapping it up at the fire sale $5,988,000 price tag.

    Would you want your kids to be living in a “Death Pad” ?

    Accordingly, DD has now decided against buying this big up people place to offer to the Bajan parliamentary representatives and the Guv to stay when they are up here to address the party faithful.

    DD would not want to be responsible if something bad to happen to them in his Death Pad.

    Unit 4003 has just sold, for $5.45 million on an asking of $5.78. It is essentially identical in size and layout, 2+1 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms as are its monthly carrying costs and taxes.
    It appears I stand corrected that the asking on MECC’s condo at $5.98 is not a fire sale price, but as DD suggested $500,000 high.
    Note this unit also begins with “4”.
