The Delichte File!

Born and raised in Vancouver, Brendan graduated from Eastern Washington University where he achieved the title of Academic All American and attained a Bachelor of Arts degree. He enjoyed a 9 year Canadian Football League career and had the privilege of participating in 4 Grey Cup Games.

Brendan joined RBC Dominion Securities in 2000 where he acquired his Financial Management Advisor (FMA) designation. He looks forward to adding to his professional designations as he seeks to continually increase his expertise in this ever-changing industry.

Brendan and his team offer focused and integrated financial services to high net worth clients. They are dedicated to understanding the individual needs of each client, as they recognized that every situation is unique. They are committed to protecting, preserving and building the wealth of investors who desire long-term, financial independence.

Brendan supports many charitable organizations and foundations as he believes it is very important to be actively involved in giving back to the community.

Good Day Readers:

As you know, the Douglas Inquiry will resume on Monday, July 16, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. in the Federal Court of Canada courtroom 363 Broadway Avenue 4th Floor.

This session, or “trial phase” as we like to call it, is expected to last about three weeks. Independent Counsel Guy Pratte will begin his opening arguments followed by Associate Chief Justice’s lead Counsel Sheila Block. A total of 14 witnesses are expected to be called starring Lori Douglas, Jack King and Complainant Alex Chapman plus a couple Queen’s Bench Chief Justices (one current the others former) thrown in for good measure.

Recently, we began wondering what’s Jack King doing these days? Back in March of 2011 he pled guilty to three counts of professional misconduct before a Law Society of Manitoba Disciplinary Panel for which he received a fine of almost $14,000 and a reprimand. He was not disbarred.

We started our research by visiting the Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench File Registry ( where we found this amazing file: FD(Family Division)04-01-73-73022 Karyn L. Delichte versus Brendan N. Rogers. While Ms Delichte currently appears to be self-represented, Jack Anthony King of the firm King Petersen is shown in the records as representing Mr. Rogers.

Further investigation has revealed Mr. Brendan Noel Rogers is none other than Brendan Rogers who played linebacker for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (1991-1996), Toronto Argonauts (1997-1999) ending his football career playing one season with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Talk about irony of ironies. A couple Saturdays ago we were at Enzo’s the Barber for our weekly beard trim drinking coffee while reading the Winnipeg Free Press. Always like to check out The Social Page to see who’s who and what they’re doing when who did we spot? That’s right, Brendan Rogers – Winnipeg is still such a small town.

It seems Mr. Rogers is now a Certified Financial Advisor with RBC. The occasion was the Rady Jewish Community Cehtre’s 40th annual Sports Dinner held at the Winnipeg Convention Centre. The Keynote Speaker was Mark Messier – remember him? Brendan Rogers was in a group photograph along with 5-others a couple of whom were also listed as Royal Bank of Canada officials.

Further, according to a posting on the Brain Injury Association of Canada website, Mr. Rogers was going to lead a team of former CLF’ers in a climb of Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds for the study of brain injury and concussion at the British Columbia Children’s Hospital. The article is only dated September 11 so we don’t know what year. All that can be said with certainty is he apparently survived and judging from the aforementioned picture it was “a few years” ago.

The file in and of itself is truly amazing – have never seen anything quite like it! According to the Disposition Sheet it began in March of 2004 when Ms Delichte filed a petition for divorce. Fast forward an amazing 36 pages and 394 entries later the last of which shows an Affidavit dated June 22, 2012 filed by Karyn Delichte on June 29th of this year. Equally astonishing are the 12-pages of hearings listed covering the period March 22, 2005 to August 3, 2012. My God there must be stories here!

For the next three weeks we will be tied up at the Douglas Inquiry but as time permits will make the short walk to The Law Courts to request this file be pulled so we can begin studying it in detail. With so many filings we expect Queen's Bench Registry staff will have to use the official QBFR wheelbarrow to bring us the material.

Karyn Delichte is currently enrolled in a graduate degree program at The California School of Professional Psychology (San Diego Campus).

Hope to see you at the Inquiry.
