A 48 year old Kim Janice Blunt AKA Kim Berly AKA Thunder Bay Dining Lady appeared by teleconference on Thursday October 19, 2017 before Justice Danial Newton in Superior Civil Court. She has no lawyer and is self representing herself.
She’s was ordered to attend an Examination in Aid Of Execution in Niagara Falls on November 22,2017. Sources indicate she did not attend that Examination On January 12,2004. Blunt plead guilty to a massive welfare fraud before Justice John Wright in Superior Criminal Court.
On June 25,2004 she was sentenced to 18 months in jail and ordered to pay 180 000$ in restituition. IN ALMOST 14 YEARS SINCE SHE HAS NOT PAID ONE SINGLE DOLLAR OF RESTITUITION.

The Thunder Bay Sheriff has a Writ of Seizure from The District of Thunder Bay Social Services Administration Board that was effective June 12,2015. A Writ of Seizure is effective for 6 years and then will need to be renewed. In order to collect the restitution (debt) an Affidavit for Enforcement Request needs to be filed with the court. Then an Execution Order will be issued by the court. The Sheriff’s office will immediately enforce that order.
