Victoria, British Columbia — A Nanaimo man may have better luck with Judy after his demand to the British Columbia Supreme Court for $32 trillion and an audience with Queen Elizabeth fell on deaf ears, following his harrowing bike accident.
Tyler Adam Chamberlin filed a civil suit against the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) in November of 2018 after he alleged he was struck in a hit-and-run while riding his bicycle in Nanaimo.
The man later amended his claim to include defendants, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, B.C. Premier John Horgan and Queen Elizabeth II, among others.
Most recently, Chamberlin represented himself at his March 1 B.C. Supreme Court hearing, which included lawyers for ICBC, the Attorney General of Canada, the Attorney General of British Columbia, the City of Nanaimo, Nanaimo Regional General Hospital and the Chief Electoral Officer of British Columbia.
At the hearing, Chamberlin presented his modest demands: $32 trillion, the “reconstruction” of the RCMP, 500,000 shares in Tesla, the suspension of trade between Canada and China, the release of various classified documents, an MRI of his entire body, the dismantling of Transport Canada, a private meeting with the Queen and the “cleaning up of the swamp,” which was not defined in the court documents.
On March 5, judge Douglas Thompson dismissed Chamberlin’s suit, saying his claims were “scandalous, vexatious, and otherwise an abuse of process.”
Claims suggesting that the driver involved in the hit-and-run incident was the Hamburglar in the middle of a getaway have not yet been verified.
