Justice for John Harmon

It’s all about KINDNESS and UNITY!

“John Wayne Harmon, a 74-year-old organic farmer, grandfather and veteran of two wars, had made a good home for himself in Kent County, New Brunswick.

But on April 8th, Police removed him from his home without explanation.  In the process, John lost his land, home, possessions and livestock in a civil and criminal legal tangle and a deal gone bad, and he is facing homelessness.

Now, he’s also facing deportation, even though he is of the Lenni Lenape-Delaware, the oldest tribe on Turtle Island. John Harmon’s ancient lineage gives him rights under Treaties to live anywhere in North America, but because of faulty legislation, he is being threatened with expulsion by Canadian Border Services.

Thanks to Friends of John Harmon, the border case is now in Federal Court.  We are working to stop an elderly man from becoming another homeless veteran, and restore his peaceful life.  

Justice for John Harmon!

John W Harmon – Lenni Lenape Grandfather, Veteran of Vietnam and Korean Wars, Off grid organic farmer and beloved neighbour.


The story from Willi Nolan:

In early April, my neighbours brought John W. Harmon to me saying they needed help from an activist. John is a 73 year old Lenni Lenape grandfather and Vietnam War veteran who bought a piece of land in our community.

John paid off his land from his small pension over 3 1/2 years; his bank showed me all the cheques that were cashed. That land, and all of his worldly possessions are in danger of being stolen from him forever because the previous owner, who took John’s money, refused to give the deed to John and made a deal to re-sell John’s home, farm, land and all of his possessions to a new neighbour.  This case is heartbreaking to say the least.

I made this page is to call your attention to John’s plight and to seek assistance so that John Harmon can get justice and return to his peaceful home life.

A small group of kind people in the area are continuing to seek a resolution for John Harmon but success is a slow and difficult process. Now the new buyer, Martin Desrosiers, has been disposing of John’s possessions.  John has filed a complaint with the RCMP for fraud and theft of his property.

Here is a letter that neighbour Peter Dauphinee  sent to the RCMP.  He and I have spoken to most of the principals involved in this, including the seller,  Terresa Peters, who seems to be refusing any attempts to contact her including by mail. [see the letter here:
