The Naivete of UUA Trustee Linda Laskowski

Previously we related Robin Edgar’s latest claim that his insulting and outrageous behavior is really a ‘caricature persona’, that he is really a “restrained’ guy.  We in turn raised the question of why anybody would embrace so obviously self-defeating a strategy.

With the recent blog posts of Linda Laskowski, UUA Trustee for the Pacific Coast District, another question comes to mind.  Maybe the ‘restrained’ Robin Edgar is the act, deliberately cultivated to dupe naive individuals like Ms Laskowski to speaking positively about his ‘single minded pursuit of justice.’

We’re distressed enough to hear that an elected representative on the UUA’s national board has seen fit to lend credence to such a malicious and destructive individual.  Yet it gets worse.  We have read from others that Ms Laskowski has refused to approve any comments which criticize her position.

We would strongly encourage concerned UUs to email her directly at  Let her know just what kind of a man Robin Edgar really is, not the ‘respectful’ facade she has so easily fallen for.

  1. She’s probably just afraid.

  2. Wait until she disappoints him, then she will have real reason to be afraid.

  3. As a member of the Unitarian Church of Montreal, it never ceases to amaze me that anyone could support Mr Edgar. We have consistently posted our position based on his 10 years of misbehaviour at the church and his membership having to be abrogated. The only membership annulled in the 168 years since the UCM’s founding. He continues to picket, he defames and denigrates anyone and everyone who crosses him. Please is there anyone out there who would take him?

    (The withdrawal of Mr. Edgar’s membership from the Unitarian Church of Montreal was not motivated by his religious beliefs, but by his disruptive and aggressive behavior towards the members of this congregation. His inappropriate behaviour has continued for more than ten years. He was brought before a Disruptive Behavior Committee, where over the next three years attempts were made to have him moderate his unacceptable behaviours. He would agree to proposed solutions and then go on as before. He was repeatedly warned that failure to comply with what he had agreed to do would result in serious consequences. Over this period, he was suspended from participation in Church life for six months. Unfortunately, upon his return his behaviour worsened and he was suspended for an additional year. Again when he returned, his inappropriate behaviour continued. Finally in November 1999, at a meeting of the full congregation, during which he spoke on his own behalf, a congregational vote was taken and his membership was revoked. This decade long process, during which sincere attempts were made by the congregation to negotiate a solution, ended when it became clear that he had no intention of ceasing his disruptive and aggressive behaviours. It should be noted that Reverend Ray Drennan did apologise, in person, on more than one occasion. However, this did not meet with Mr Edgar’s satisfaction. Mr. Edgar has redressed his grievances to whomever he has seen fit, be it the UAA, CUC, etc., and his complaint to the Quebec Human Rights Commission in 2002 was summarily dismissed as being without merit. Mr Edgar continues to picket the church in the futile belief that the Church will act. Reverend Drennan is no longer the minister as he left to follow his own life’s journey some years ago; and the church has simply moved on.
    Additionally, the new minister of the Montreal church, Reverend Diane Rollert filed for a restraining order against Robin Edgar, which the Montreal court saw fit to grant. Still he pickets, rants and lashes out at UUs everywhere.
    Robin Edgar wants people to believe that he’s the eternal victim.
