A spat between two Howe Street promoters has become very public with the filing of a lawsuit in the Supreme Court of British Columbia this week. The suit, launched by Robert Gardner, accuses Viridis Energy Inc. chairman John Campbell of making threats, committing fraud and breaching trust, among other things. It also includes quotes from a phone call in which Mr. Campbell allegedly said to Mr. Gardner, "I'm going to fuckin' tear you apart ten times over."
The allegations, which are contained in a notice of claim that Mr. Gardner filed at the Vancouver courthouse on Tuesday, Nov. 20, stem from a dispute over a private oil and gas partnership the men formed in 2008. Mr. Gardner says that he invested $1,874,773 in various private entities at Mr. Campbell's direction, but he has received no benefits from the partnership. He says he made the investments after Mr. Campbell assured him that he had "nothing to worry about" and that Mr. Campbell would handle the money in a "safe and professional manner."

Ya. This is the guy Don pretends he's partners with. Tells everyone "I bought Jameson House space". As if.

hey guys doesn't this just say it all about Robert Gardner:
"Utterly ridiculous is the propensity of this career promoter to run, (not walk) to the high court with every imagined panty twist. The goal is outrageous and obvious ... slag your oponents in the court of public opinion while launching frivoulous and vexatious litigation that is very clearly an abuse of process.
It absolutely, positively amazes that the Law Society allows this offense to continue, year after year, dopey, hopeless lawsuit after lawsuit. Sickening."
What a sad sad end to a questionable career?!!?
