This page is for Canadian content. The ever faithful, quiet, low-key Canadians are living in a fool's paradise of self-congratulatory ignorance. The Harper Government is slowly and methodically selling off directly or indirectly the country to the special interests behind the SPP/NAU. With the typical contempt for the populace he and most of the provincial politicians have for the public he says one thing and does another, secure in the knowledge that the quiet citizens and the complicit media will not make anything of it. So Canadians, put away your Giller prize novel, turn down CBC, turn off Hockey Night in Canada and start truly looking around you. You are not exempt from the tyranny of the world.
Canadians might be surprised at how much industry is devoted to military contracts and to the fact that Canada is one of the leaders in germ warfare research. What!?, not sweet little Canucks. Some of the worst mind-maniplation research was done in Canada with the use of hallucinogenics such as LSD through a CIA backed project know as MK-Ultra. These tests were done on patients of mental institutions without their permission. A direct contravention of so called human-rights. Canada's contribution to the nuclear industry both for power generation and power degeneration is well documented throught the sale of Candu Reactors and very large exports of Uranium, which of course is used not only for power generation but nuclear weapons.
It might surprise Canadians to know that the Canadian government, in a deal cut covertly with Monsanto, allowed this paragon of virtue to test GMO products on Canadians for ten years without any knowledge or consent from the public. Back in the 60's Canada allowed the CIA Mindcontrol project MKUltra to use Canadians for life/mind damaging experiments, and currently our global agenda servants let planes chemtrail our cities every day. Yes, our democratic institutions, in place for the better good of the citizenry, did what they have always done, that is; served the corporate and elite masters who couldn't care less about the Useless Eaters.
So Canada got the G8/G20 sideshow designed to showcase the 1+ billion dollar security scam for the NWO minions who parade and preen for the press and to top it off the the doyen of the Elite's, the Queen bee herself lands to pomp and circumstance to enthrall the peasants as they recover from the robot radicals and police provocateurs who provided the burning cars, smashed store windows, and confiscated "weapons" (shades of Israel and the Gaza flotilla) news bites, mandatory for such events. "Do you like the future we have planned for you", the Queen was not heard to say out loud.
Meanwhile the cops and the security goons abducted peaceful protesters and arrested 500 people who didn't believe that the Global Fascist/Communist police state planned for everyone but the elites is something they wanted to be a part of. It turns out they created a non-existent law to justify demanding identification and arrestiing citizens. As more and more information gets out about the actions of the police and private security during the G8/G20 Canadians are going to get a look at just how different the reality of the Canadian slide into global tyranny is versus the media/government propaganda. Right on cue Harper and his minion buddies crow about aUSterity- must take more of the public's money pass it on to the bankers and give then even less in the way of services. Sounds like Bilderberg to me but, hey, I'm just one of those little people too. Oh, yes, these people are supposed to be public 'servants' but somehow I think they got it mixed up.
G20 Protesters Being Abducted, Bundled Into Unmarked Vans In Toronto
Repeat of scenes from 2009 G20 meeting in Pittsburgh as martial law drills continue
Steve Watson, Prisonplanet.com, Monday, Jun 28th, 2010
In a repeat of scenes witnessed at last year’s G20 meeting in Pittsburgh, protesters in Toronto are being abducted off the streets and bundled into unmarked vehicles which are driven away at high speeds.
Several videos show police tackling protesters to the ground, cuffing them and then handing them over to unidentified casually dressed individuals who shove the demonstrators into unmarked black vans.
Police then randomly grab further protesters as more of the unmarked vehicles arrive on the scene.
This video of scenes from the protests shows another protester being forced into an unmarked black vehicle as the crowds chant “let them go”:
In another video of the same incident police are seen keeping the roads clear for the unmarked vehicles to get away:
Other videos show police seemingly randomly grabbing peaceful demonstrators for no reason other than getting too close to the police line:
These videos, and many others uploaded to Youtube, clearly show police charging and attacking peaceful protesters and journalists, while in some cases black bloc anarchists have been allowed to rampage through the city unchallenged.
Prior to the G20 and G8 gatherings, Toronto police were given unprecedented powers to to arrest anyone near the security zone who refuses to identify themselves or agree to a police search.
It is not clear where the snatched protesters were taken, however it is assumed they were detained in the massive movie studio police have been using as a temporary jail. The building is roughly five kilometres from the Toronto Convention Centre, outside the two security zones.
British activist Charlie Veitch, who was arrested last week in Toronto for refusing to show ID, described the conditions in the makeshift prison on last Friday’s Alex Jones show, noting that the building the size of two football pitches was crammed with cages and covered with cctv cameras.
Veitch, along with Canadian activist Dan Dicks returned to the show yesterday to detail suspicious undercover police activity at the meeting.
Watch the video:
During last year’s G20 meeting video was captured of military police kidnapping a demonstrator in Pittsburgh, shoving him into an unmarked gold Sedan and driving away.
The video quickly became viral and attracted much media attention:
After the Drudge Report linked to the shocking video, hoards of mindless Neo-Cons flooded comment boards claiming the event was “fake” or “staged,” citing all manner of ludicrous and unfounded reasons in a desperate effort to deny the fact that America is now a military police state.
G20 security officials subsequently took responsibility for the video and admitted it was real, stating that the protester was arrested for “vandalizing a store.”
The message is clear, exercising free speech in Canada and the U.S. is now officially a criminal offense and people who dare exercise it are attacked and abducted in broad daylight.
These scenes are a precursor to what our future cities will permanently look like as the world we live in worsens at the hands of the international banksters that have hijacked our governments and our political systems. Only by standing up now and refusing to accept scenes like this as normal do we stand any chance of preventing that scenario from unfolding.
Peaceful Protesters Attacked, Arrested While Cop-Car Arsonists Left Alone
Provocateur? So-called “anarchist” pictured wearing Nike clothing
Paul Joseph Watson, Prison Planet.com, Monday, June 28, 2010, http://www.prisonplanet.com/peaceful-protesters-attacked-arrested-while-cop-car-arsonists-left-alone.html
An eyebrow-raising photograph of one of the anarchists who set fire to a Toronto police car during anti-G20 protests this past weekend shows him wearing Nike clothing, a potential indication that provocateurs dressed up as black-bloc “anarchists” were again employed by authorities to cause mayhem in order to justify a brutal police crackdown and crush free speech, as peaceful protesters were attacked and arrested while the anarchists who torched the cars were left alone.
The picture shows the two culprits who set fire to the police car congratulating each other and looking remarkably relaxed about potentially being caught by police considering what they had just done. One of the men is wearing Nike pants – the distinctive logo of the company can be seen above his left pocket.
Why would a hardcore anarchists so dedicated to his cause that he is willing to torch a police car be wearing clothing made by a company that anarchists universally abhor, and one that has routinely been targeted by anarchists for well over a decade?
The authorities certainly wasted no time in responding to the mayhem the anarchists helpfully generated for them with brute force. After anarchists torched four police cars, reporters and other peaceful protesters were targeted with rubber bullets, with another Guardian journalist being repeatedly punched and elbowed by cops.
“A newspaper photographer was shot with a plastic bullet in the backside, while another had an officer point a gun in his face despite identifying himself as a member of the media,” reported the Canadian Press news agency.
Journalist Steve Paikin of public broadcaster TV Ontario described the brutal beating of the Guardian reporter.
“As I was escorted away from the demonstration, I saw two officers hold a journalist. The journalist identified himself as working for ‘the Guardian.’ He talked too much and pissed the police off. Two officers held him a third punched him in the stomach. Totally unnecessary. The man collapsed. Then the third officer drove his elbow into the man’s back. No cameras recorded the assault. And it was an assault.”
Paikin noted how middle class, peaceful demonstrators were being attacked and arrested by police, while the anarchists who provided them with the pretext to do so were nowhere to be seen.
“The police just started arresting people. I stress, this was a peaceful, middle class, diverse crowd. No anarchists. Literally more than 100 officers with guns pointing at the crowd. Rubber bullets and smoke bombs ready to be fired. Rubber bullets fired.” “I have lived in Toronto for 32 years. Have never seen a day like this. Shame on the vandals and shame on those that ordered peaceful protesters attacked and arrested,” added Paikin
Could the two men in the picture be cops dressed up as anarchists? It wouldn’t be the first time that cops had posed as protesters and deliberately staged violence in an effort to justify a heavy-handed police response.
We have documented numerous different occasions where the black bloc anarchists were completely infiltrated by the authorities to provide a pretext for a police state crackdown.
A recent example occurred at last year’s Pittsburgh G20 summit, where footage showed three burly older men who look completely out of place with black bandanas over their face walking alongside young protesters during a march against police brutality in a You Tube clip entitled “G20 Epic Undercover Police Fail”.
The clip would be hilarious if it was not so disturbing. Protesters walking behind what are obviously badly disguised cops claim they broke cameras and acted aggressively towards genuine protesters, as well as carrying gas canisters. During a peaceful demonstration on the same night, riot cops savagely attacked protesters with batons and rubber bullets while also assaulting and arresting students who weren’t even part of the demonstration.
Following the SPP protests in Canada three years ago, Quebec provincial authorities were forced to admit that three rock-wielding black mask-wearing “anarchists” were in fact police infiltrators used to gather information on protesters.
Video shows two of the provocateurs pick up rocks and try to incite violence before they are outed as cops by legitimate demonstrators. The two thugs then tried to slip behind police lines before their fellow officers were forced to stage their arrest. Again, the fact that they were cops in disguise was later admitted by authorities. Interestingly as it applies to the Toronto “anarchists,” one of the primary reasons the men initially aroused suspicion was the fact that they were wearing the same distinctive boots as the uniformed riot police.
Alex Jones’ film Police State 2: The Takeover exposed how the black bloc anarchists were completely infiltrated and provocateured by the authorities during the violent 1999 WTO protests in Seattle.
The authorities declared a state of emergency, imposed curfews and resorted to nothing short of police state tactics in response to a small minority of hostile black bloc hooligans. Police allowed the black bloc to run riot in downtown Seattle while they concentrated on preventing the movement of peaceful protestors. The film presents clear evidence that the black bloc anarchist group was actually controlled by the state and used to demonize peaceful protesters.
At the WTO protests in Genoa 2001 a protestor was killed after being shot in the head and run over twice by a police vehicle. The Italian Carabiniere also later beat on peaceful protestors as they slept, and even tortured some, at the Diaz School. It later emerged that the police fabricated evidence against the protesters, claiming they were anarchist rioters, to justify their actions. Some Carabiniere officials have since come forward to say they knew of infiltration of the so called black bloc anarchists, and that fellow officers acted as agent provocateurs.
At the Free Trade Area of Americas protests in Miami in late November 2003, more provocateuring was evident. The United Steelworkers of America calling for a congressional investigation, stated that the police intentionally caused violence and arrested and charged hundreds of peaceful protestors. The USWA suggested that billions of dollars supposedly slated for Iraq reconstruction funds are actually being used to subsidize “homeland repression” in America.
The leadership of the black bloc has been completely usurped by the authorities and anyone who still professes to be a member of the group is either supremely naive or completely stupid. To dress up like terrorists, all in black with ski masks and bandanas (like the police) immediately sends out a negative message to the watching public and demonizes legitimate protesters, as does pointlessly setting fire to a police car. Engaging in such acts only bolsters the rational and reasonable facade of groups like G20 that the anarchists supposedly want to discredit.
Such incidents provide the perfect justification for the authorities to shut down the free speech of legitimate demonstrators who actually have something of substance to say and a means of communicating their message, people like Charlie Veitch, who was arrested, tortured and caged by Toronto police thugs after he used a bullhorn.
Canadians need to be as concerned about the enormous influence Israel has over Canadian politics as Americans and other countries. It's one thing to have religious groups who have affiliations and affections for both their religions and spiritual homelands but quite another for one religion to have a massive lobbying power that can directly influence provincial and federal policies for all citizens. Look how quickly Harper dismissed the Gaza flotilla tyranny.
Mr Harper and his Zionist Christians are welcome to their religion and opinions but not when it directly affects others, and it doesn't matter what religion or belief group that is in power, it's wrong. The suggestion that a politician should be fired for speaking out about the facts of Israel's racist, apartheid regime is the exact antithesis of free-speech.
Harper wants NDP to fire deputy Libby Davies for criticism of Israel
Tuesday, June 15, 2010 5:10 PM http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/ottawa-notebook/harper-wants-ndp-to-fire-deputy-libby-davies-for-criticism-of-israel/article1605386/
Stephen Harper called NDP House leader Libby Davies an extremist and then compared her to Helen Thomas, the long-time White House correspondent who was forced to resign recently over controversial remarks about Israel.
He didn’t stop there.
He demanded that her boss, NDP Leader Jack Layton, fire Ms. Davies, a Vancouver MP, who is also the party’s deputy leader, over remarks she made that questioned Israel’s right to exist.
“I am looking forward to seeing the Leader of the NDP get up and unequivocally distance himself from the comments of his House leader and his deputy leader that have called Israel's existence an occupation,” said Mr. Harper. “This is a fundamental denial of Israel's right to exist. It repeats the kinds of comments that were made by Helen Thomas on which she was forced to resign, and the member of the NDP who said that should be forced to resign as well.”
The Prime Minister, who demanded Mr. Layton distance himself from Ms. Davies’s remarks.
Mr. Layton did just that: “No one in our party has ever denied the right of Israel to exist.”
Ms. Davies provoked this uproar after she gave an interview at an anti-Israel protest earlier this month, in which she said the Israeli occupation began in 1948.
Oh, oh Canada how much is one billion dollars? There are just over 34 million people in Canada. Let's make that 35 million and see how that divides into a billion- that's slightly over $28 dollars per person. Now let's put all that money into a great big barrel and hand it off to G8/G20 security services so that the great leaders of the civilized world will be safe when they come to Canada. Safe from what you might add? How about the massive number of people that are waking up to the scam being played out on them by the ever complicit goverments and "leaders" to destroy nations and economies so that the banking cabal and the elites behind it can bring their New World Order, slave state closer to fruition. Let's not forget too that this $1,000,000,000 figure does not include all the food, hotels, limos, flights, entertainment, booze, and other perks that will be required for the delegates.
Watching the industrial base of North America and European countries slide into the pacific rim, watching increased taxes, draconian "laws", endless bank failures/bailouts/bonuses, erosion of national boundaries and soverignty all in the name of "free" trade and "global" cooperation hasn't been missed by a good segment of the population. Yes, the hucksters might have some cause to worry. Of course the provacatuers will be out there as well as the robot radicals with their one note rant and rage, but so too will many other tax paying, law abiding citizens who've had enough. Canada has gotten off easy so far, but that's not going to last either.
Frankly, most of the so called decisions that will be trotted out in the inevitable-'see we are working for you' photo-ops have already been made at Bilderberg, CFR and Trilateral Commision meetings, so this is just primarily an expensive PR stunt. These exalted beings that require the GDP of a small country for their security are supposed to be public "servants" but I think most realise now that the joke is on us and we are the "public" servants.
Gangsterism 2.0: Global Government Gone Wild At G20 in Toronto
The Excavator, Friday, May 28, 2010
Next month, downtown Toronto will morph into a full-scale battlefield, with the front lines clearly defined, as Canadians hit the streets to protest G8/G20 leaders, and to stand in fellowship with the people of the world in the global war for economic and political justice. It is expected that there will be 11,000 police officers, private security guards, and intelligence agents, to assist and protect the gangsters of governments who pose to the public as statesmen and diplomats. In April, Colin Freeze of The Globe and Mail reported that the country's military will also be on hand to defend so-called world dignitaries, saying "unspecified numbers of Canadian soldiers and spies will also work behind the scenes to help thousands of police safeguard the meetings."
In the middle of a global economic crisis, the origins of which have been attributed to wide-scale banking fraud and corrupt government regulation, it is not at all surprising to see that the protection racket is experiencing growth. All the police pageantry for the G20 summit, which will convene on June 26 and end the following day, is predicted to cost over one billion dollars. But, shockingly, none of that money has been allocated to repair any damage done to businesses and property owners. The Globe and Mail's Anna Mehler Paperny reports:
The federal government won’t compensate property owners in downtown Toronto for damage sustained during next month’s G20 summit.
A May 21 e-mail from a G20 Foreign Affairs liaison says that while businesses can apply for ex-gratia compensation "related to financial loss as a result of the extraordinary security measures" associated with the summit, "if there are losses or damages caused by third parties, including vandalism, payment will not be provided. … These types of damages are insurable under normal insurance coverage."
The federal government is spending close to $1-billion on summit security, much of it going to protect delegates and maintain order in Toronto’s densely populated downtown core.
The price tag for the much hyped-event isn't the only disconcerting aspect of the government's protection policy. Gwalgen Geordie Dent of the news organization Toronto Media Co-op reported last Sunday May 23 that government forces will not be restrained by the law. If they see fit, they will use agent provocateurs to engage protesters in a violent manner. Toronto Media Co-op:
The RCMP-led Integrated Security Unit (ISU) of the G20 is refusing to rule out the use of Agent Provocateurs to get protesters to commit illegal acts, the Toronto Media Co-op has learned.
During a G20 forum on April 30th held by Toronto City Councilors, Constable George Tucker, a member of the G20 planning team responsible for Public Affairs, Communications & Corporate Relations, was asked if Agent Provocateurs would be used.
He responded: ""I'm not at liberty to discuss security issues in an open format".
Another weapon of attack that will most likely be used on protesters are sound canons, which were present at the G20 protests last September in Pittsburgh. Jennifer Yang of The Toronto Star writes:
Riotous protesters marching at the G20 summit next month may be greeted with ear-splitting "sound cannons," the latest Toronto police tool for quelling unruly crowds.
Toronto police have purchased four, long-range acoustic devices (LRAD) — often referred to as sound guns or sound cannons — for the upcoming June 26-27 summit, the Star has learned.
The tool is meant to disperse large crowds, and by doing so, it kills free speech and denies concerned citizens the freedom of assembly. If the technology was available to 20th century totalitarian governments, they would have used them regularly, regardless of the pain that it causes in people, because, simply put, governments don't like using excessive force. Blood in the streets is not a pleasing sight. Sound canons are much more reliable and effective. Although such devices are less violent tools than guns and gases, the intent they are used with by anti-democratic governments are the same, which is to discourage people from protesting and voicing their opinions in public.

Here's a thought to chew on Canucks. You've heard SPP is dead, or at least the name is dead. Lets just say for argument that in fact the deal is done deal and it's all quiet and sub-rosa. Bring it in piece by piece. So we have Mexican President Calderon appearing in the US Senate telling the Americans how they should manage their affairs and on the very real problem of illegal immigration into the US from Mexico he talks about 'Migration' not immigration. Now I believe his command of English is good enough to know the difference and what is the difference? Immigration is between countries, Migration is within countries or borderless districts. A slip of the tongue, I think not. Now he goes up to Canada and chides the Canadian government about Visa restrictions on Mexican "visitors".
First we take Manhattan then we take Toronto, to paraphrase a famous lyric. Let's see, we have a President from one of the most corrupt drug havens in the world lecturing us on our policies and I suppose the simple 'decent' thing to do is just open all the borders. Well if you remember SPP it was in essence to do that very thing, including the TransTexasCorridor to bring up all those wonderful cheap Mexican made goods and drugs, and those hungry workers who will work for a few dollars an hour instead of those spoiled, rich gringos. In addition a common currency was to be established. It looks like the common currency (Amero) is being scrapped for a 'global' currency instead, after all why only go part way when you can have it all? And through it all the smiling little sell out Harper sits there serving the global masters thinking he's got his. I got news for you buster you are expendable too.
Canada, Mexico 'regret' visa ruling
By Mike Blanchfield, The Canadian Press
OTTAWA - It will be year or more before Canada can lift its controversial visa requirement for Mexican visitors, says Immigration Minister Jason Kenney.
Kenney echoed visiting Mexican President Felipe Calderon in saying he regrets the visa decision, but stressed it will remain in place until Canada's flawed refugee system is fixed.
The Mexican leader addressed the visa issue during a speech to Parliament on Thursday, confronting a source of friction between the two countries.
Both sides took pains to play down the rift, with Kenney and Prime Minister Stephen Harper blaming the troubled refugee system and Calderon admitting some people took advantage of Canada's generosity.
The Mexican leader, however, said he hopes recently introduced proposals to change to Canadian laws will ease the situation.
"We sincerely hope that the solution this Parliament is studying, through comprehensive amendments to the refugee law, will also serve as a bridge that will enable us to renew our exchanges of our visitors,'' he said.
''At the same time I reiterate our full willingness to work with the Canadian government so that this temporary measure can be put behind us."
Afterwards, Kenney said he hopes the visa rule can one day be lifted, but added: "temporary does not mean short-term for sure."
The minister said he hopes Parliament can pass a new refugee law before the summer recess. But he said the government would have to study the new, streamlined system for at least a year before even considering changes to Mexico's status.
"No responsible government would be able to reconsider visa liberalization unless and until there has been a reform of the asylum system," he said.
Kenney said asylum claims from Mexico are down 90 per cent in the last year. That had saved taxpayers $400 million.
Calderon said Mexican tourism to Canada has dropped 40 per cent in the last 12 months.
The president thanked the RCMP for helping his country in its deadly battle against drug cartels.
Addressing the joint session of both MPs and senators, he said he is committed to imposing law and order against criminals trying to destabilize his country over drugs.
About 23,000 people have been killed in Mexico's campaign against drug lords in the last four years.
He said his country is working hard to bolster the rule of law in a campaign against transnational criminal groups.
Winning the fight will take time and cost lives, he said.
"It is a battle that must be undertaken. And it is a battle that the people of Mexico are going to win,'' he said.
Calderon placed a wreath honouring Second World War veterans at the National War Memorial before arriving on Parliament Hill for a formal welcome from Harper and other dignitaries.
He was to visit Gov. Gen. Michaelle Jean later in the day.
Calderon caps his trip with a two-city push for deeper bilateral trade and investment.
He's to meet with business executives in Toronto and hold talks in Montreal with Quebec Premier Jean Charest and the directors of Bombardier, which has an aerospace manufacturing plant in Mexico.
You know what's sad about this? Not that the government would use tax-payer money to do this like some two-bit totalitarian regime but that it took an American researcher to bring this up publicly.
Alex Jones: Canadian conspiracy
Russia Today, May 25, 2010
The Canadian government has been caught paying a media group to monitor online political discussion and respond to misinformation, in order words to spread state-sanctioned propaganda, in the latest scandal to hit the Harper administration.

The recent fire bombing of an Ottawa bank had the usual provocateured smoke and mirrors about it. If it was a genuine operation by an anarchist or otherwise group then it was brilliant set-up for the security concerns of the G8-G20 meetings coming soon to Hogtown and environs. More surveillance, more police, more special forces on the street, more restrictions. Ah, the New World Order is here for your benefit peons, be happy.
The Toronto G20 Police State Crackdown
By Dana Gabriel
Be Your Own Leader-Sun.May 22, 2010
It appears as if the G20 summit in Toronto is shaping up to be a showdown between anarchists and police. Caught in the middle of the security circus are local residents. If there is violence and property damage, peaceful protesters will also be demonized. The recent bombing of a bank, perpetrated by a so-called anarchist group, has given an excuse to enact more police state measures during the summit. The curious timing of the attack emphasizes the threat of terrorism and further justifies the huge security apparatus being assembled.
A group calling itself FFFC-Ottawa has claimed responsibility for the recent firebombing of a Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) branch. It was targeted because of the RBC’s sponsorship of the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, as well as its role in financing Alberta’s tar sands projects. The group has threatened to make an appearance at the meetings. “On June 25-27 2010, the G8/G20 ‘leaders’ and bankers are meeting in Huntsville and Toronto to make decisions that will further their policies of exploitation of people and the environment. We will be there.” Some have labelled the bombing as an act of domestic terrorism and have compared the radical anarchist community to terrorist groups. There are fears that the incident might inspire copycat attacks. With Toronto set to play host to the G20, it has become a national security issue. The Canadian Security Intelligence Service recently warned of homegrown terror in Canada. It is also interesting to note that in an effort to revive post-9/11 powers in late April, the Conservative government introduced the Combating Terrorism Act.

Canadians live in a bubble where everything happens 'out there'. One of the big wakeups will come with the G8 and G20 conferences scheduled to happen in Ontario. The full effect of a police state that Vancouverites got a taste of will be out in aces in TO. The banker masters and their puppet polyticians will work at consolidating the world government agenda, with all the attendant pomp and spin that these self-infatuated criminals relish. Lets hope that the police provocateurs and the text book anarchists don't give the boys (and girls) in black a chance to use their expensive toys on the populace. Ah, democracy- let's not all laugh at once!
Downtown Toronto To Be Transformed Into Locked-Down Police State This Summer
Free speech zones, airport style checkpoints and a huge holding facility prepared for G20 Summit
Steve Watson, Infowars.net, Wednesday, April 28th, 2010
Preparations are underway for a massive show of force in Toronto this Summer as the G20 summit comes to town. Unprecedented levels of security are being undertaken, with one of the largest movie studios in North America being transformed into a giant holding facility for unruly protesters.
Police say they are prepared for huge protests during the summit, scheduled to convene over the weekend of June 26/27.
Toronto law enforcement officials have announced they are "tapping" social network websites to monitor the potential activities of protesters as they gear up for the event.
"(Social media) allows people to communicate in a lot more different ways. It's just another tool," Const. Wendy Drummond told CP24 news. "The way we police our protests hasn't changed."
"The Olympics that you saw recently in Vancouver was actually the largest security event ever to take place here in Canada. The G20/G8 surpasses that completely," Const. Ed Boltuc, a Toronto Police Services officer and liaison with the RCMP-led Integrated Security Unit, told the Toronto Star recently.
"There’s going to be a massive -- absolutely massive -- presence of police and security on the ground like you’ve never seen before." Boltuc added.
The Globe and Mail has reported that up to10,000 uniformed officers, along with a 1,000 private security guards will be deployed, as well as Canadian military forces. The security costs are expected to cost the Canadian government (taxpayers) $179 million.
The plans include two security perimeters, walled in with huge 3 meter high fences, with Toronto police in charge of the outer zone and the RCMP in charge of the inner zone. Anyone entering the inner perimeter, where the Metro Convention Centre is located, will be processed through five levels of airport style security screening.
Various checkpoints throughout Toronto will be outfitted with "Magnetometers," "walk-through metal detectors," "X-Ray belt driven scanners" and "hand-held metal detectors."
Residents and workers in the area will have to register with the authorities to get access to their homes and businesses during the meeting.
The Canadian Forces plans are described as "large-scale operational planning, land and air surveillance, underwater safety and security for the venues and some logistic and ceremonial functions. Support also includes drawing on the CF’s ongoing partnership in the North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD)."
Protesters will also be subject to designated free speech zones. If they breach these zones they will be forced to move or be arrested.
Police have announced that they will be using a massive movie studio as a temporary jail. The building is roughly five kilometres from the Convention Centre, outside the two security zones. The plan echoes tactics employed in the U.S. at recent DNC and RNC Conventions, where thousands of protesters were indiscriminately rounded up and kept for up to several hours in temporary prisons.
Sunday saw tactical officers take over part of the underground in the financial district of downtown Toronto in an unannounced simulated hostage event. Police worked in tandem with private security guards and we're seen herding people through the building.
The drill was caught on video by Dan Dicks of Press For Truth:
Another training exercise on Sunday saw two military helicopters flying around the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and then landing at the nearby CN Tower.
The heightened security will begin two weeks before the summit.
Bill C-6-Another one bites the dust
Well complacent Canadians you might want to watch this as it will apply to everyone in the country if this passes_the Totalitarian Tiptoe. Only public pressure can bring this to light and open it for discussion. Put down the Attwood, turn off the game, watch it and think about it, it's your life!
Restricting Our Freedoms_Shawn Buckely on Bill C-6:
Canada is not immune to the New World Order agenda, in many ways the country has been ahead of the curve in implementing policies. In order to understand the following item you need to know about Codex Alimentarius and the draconian legislations that are awaiting to be made public policy around the world, effectively controlling all herbal and natural remedies and bringing in police state powers to "health" officials. Big Pharma, Agrabusiness, Biotech and all other mega-money corporations are owned by the agenda setters who have a vested interest in seeing that natural products and remedies are not only controlled but curtailed. Do you want a world run by Monsanto? Natural supplements are dangerous and need to be legislated but let's see, GMO products, Mood control drugs, vaccines all proven to be not only harmful but toxic and in some cases fatal are abundant in society but don't take that Echinacea folks it's unregulated.
Stop selling unlicensed natural health remedies: pharmacy regulators
Tom Blackwell, National Post Published: Sunday, February 07, 2010
National Post The National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities (NAPRA) says pharmacists cannot be assured the products are safe until they are granted a government licence
Makers of natural-health products say they are bracing for widespread layoffs and millions of dollars in losses after Canada's pharmacy regulators issued a surprise directive recently urging druggists to stop selling unlicensed natural remedies.
The order affects thousands of herbal treatments, multi-vitamins and other products, most of them waiting for approval from Health Canada under a backlogged, five-year-old program to regulate natural-health goods.
The National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities (NAPRA) says pharmacists cannot be assured the products are safe until they are granted a government licence, and should not sell them in those circumstances. "Pharmacists are obliged to hold the health and safety of the public or patient as their first and foremost consideration," said the association's recently issued position statement.
Representatives of the natural health industry, however, have reacted angrily to the directive issued last month, predicting it will have little impact on patient safety, while triggering an economic "crisis" for their members.
"We are talking about job loss, we are talking about a lot of income loss, we are talking about product stuck in warehouses that cannot be sold," Jean-Yves Dionne, a spokesman for the Canadian Health Food Association, said in an interview.
A statement issued by the association calls the directive self-serving and contrary to federal government policy.
"It has taken a sledge hammer to a finishing nail," the group said. "It will create confusion for consumers. It is the wrong thing to do."
NAPRA is comprised of representatives of the provincial colleges of pharmacy that regulate the profession. It is now up to the individual provinces to implement the statement. The Ontario and Quebec colleges have already done so, with Ontario pressing pharmacists to not buy or order any more of the affected products, and its neighbour pushing for druggists to also remove unlicensed product already on their shelves, Mr. Dionne said.
Pharmacies, as surprised by the directive as anyone, are caught in the middle, said Jeff Poston of the Canadian Pharmacists Association.
"One of the questions that everybody is asking in the pharmacy world is, ‘Why now?' As far as people can determine, nothing has significantly changed."
A spokesman for NAPRA was not available for comment.
The controversy revolves around Health Canada's natural-health products regime, launched in 2004 to vet treatments that had been virtually unregulated before, in a new system some critics said was still too lax. As it ploughed through tens of thousands of applications for licences, the department said manufacturers could continue selling their products, so long as they had at least applied for approval.
The department has issued about 18,000 natural-health licences, while at least 10,000 products are still waiting for certification, industry representatives said. The whole process was supposed to be done by this January. The natural-food association argues that it makes no sense for the pharmacy regulators to try to block sales of products awaiting licences, when Health Canada itself has said they can be sold pending an approval decision.
The industry is worth an estimated $1.5-billion to $2-billion a year, but many producers are small operations with sales of $1-million to $2-million annually and could be decimated by the directive, Mr. Dionne said. He cited a call he got last week from a manufacturer in Nova Scotia who sells two products -- a homeopathic remedy for diabetes-related pain and a vitamin-based pill -- that are waiting for approval and could be forced off the shelves.
"They are really panicking out there," he said.
Some manufacturers could sell their products in health-food stores instead, but others rely exclusively on pharmacies, said Mr. Dionne.
Gerry Harrington of Consumer Health Products Canada, another industry group that represents natural-health producers, said his members strongly support the regulations. NAPRA may be targeting others, though, who are trying to evade any government oversight, he said.
"There is a sub-set of companies out there who have no intention of complying with the regulations, who have taken advantage of the interim approach to essentially ignore the regulations," Mr. Harrington said. "Some companies have chosen ... to lobby politically for an essentially unregulated or minimally regulated industry."
Meanwhile, Mr. Poston said pharmacists are pressing for the regulators to lessen the disruption by phasing in the policy.

So Canucks the PM prorogues Parliament again when things get tough on detainee torture in Afghanistan (that's democracy for you) and now surprise, surprise the state is ready to further limit personal freedoms by putting naked body scanners in the airports. Yah, but it's for our protection... Mmm lets see, some patsy from Yemen is assisted on to an international flight without a passport and then remarkably tries to set off an "underwear" bomb. Now the war drums are beating for an attack on Yemen. How gullible are you people?
Magically everyone has made their orders for yet another peg in the global police state- naked body scanners. Condition the serfs to the Orwellian control system. These body-scanners are not only a complete disregard for personal privacy but are dangerous in that the high doses of radiation generated by them has been shown to be equal to the amounts generated by x-ray machines and damaging to DNA. This is just the start folks, next it will be every airport then it will be train stations and bus stations then shopping malls and bars and then.. RFID bands or implants. Wake up fools!
Naked airport scanners to be installed in 11 airports within two months
By Jim Bronskill, The Canadian Press Tue Jan 5, 12:50 PM
OTTAWA - The government plans to install dozens of scanners that can see through the clothes of travellers in airports across the country.
Transport Minister John Baird will announce plans today to install the machines in 11 airports within two months.
An insider has told The Canadian Press that a total of about 45 scanners, which cost $200,000 apiece, will eventually be in place around Canada.
Initially the machines will turn up in cities including Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Vancouver, the source said on condition of anonymity.
The move follows an apparent attempt by a Nigerian man to blow up a jetliner over Michigan by igniting explosives sewn into his underwear.
The system, tested in British Columbia at the Kelowna airport, can enable a screening officer to see whether someone is carrying explosives or other dangerous items.
Last week officials said there were no plans to speed up consideration of the long-discussed scanners in light of the near-disaster.
But the government, under pressure to respond to the dramatic U.S. incident, has decided to make the multimillion-dollar purchase.
The proposal has stirred controversy because the scanner produces a three-dimensional outline of a person's naked body - prompting some to denounce the process as a virtual strip search.
The system received the blessing of the federal privacy czar in October.
Under the plan approved by the privacy chief, the officer would view the image in a separate room and never see the actual traveller.
Only people singled out for extra screening would be scanned, and they would have the option of getting a physical pat-down instead.
Chantal Bernier, the assistant federal privacy commissioner, told a conference the holographic image generated by the scanner makes it difficult to identify the traveller's face.
"You would not know who it is, even if you knew the person was in line," she said at the annual meeting of the Canadian Association for Security and Intelligence Studies.
In addition, the image would be deleted the moment the person leaves the screening portal.
"In our view, these privacy safeguards meet the test for the proper reconciliation of public safety and privacy," Bernier said.
The scanners are already in use at airports in cities including Amsterdam, Moscow and Phoenix. They are also found in the high-security "green zone" of Baghdad and at some U.S. courthouses and prisons.
Bernier added that the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority had done thorough threat assessments that revealed a need to search passengers for weapons that might elude a conventional metal detector.
The privacy commissioner's office recommends a public education campaign to explain the machines, and says minors would be scanned only with the consent of guardians accompanying them.
The air security authority says the low-level radio frequency wave emitted by the body scanner meets Canadian health-and-safety standards.
Here's a couple of things to digest Canadianos. Free country right? Did you hear the truth about H1N1 and the danger of the Flu shots on Consensus by Committee?, did you get any real discussion or differences of opinion on Copenhagen or 'Global WarmingTM' in any of your media?
How about hassling the alternate news presenter Amy Goodman when she tried to come into Canada to give a talk. The big problem?, that she might say something against the Olympics. Heaven help her should she discuss Swine Flu or Global scamming. See too the article on the military getting urban camo for use in Canadian cities. Now why on earth would they need that?
Oh, how about the recent article Financial Post (Cdn ed.) calling for population control. Folks you can remain asleep for only only so long before there is no possibility to change the agenda. Nice country, too bad you blew it, or---
Canadian Border Officials: Political Thought Police
Amy Goodman felt ‘violated’ by Canadian border officials
David Edwards, Raw Story, Friday, November 27, 2009
A U.S. journalist was grilled by Canadian border officials for 90 minutes Wednesday. Officials demanded to know if Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman was going to speak against hosting the Olympic games in Canada.
Goodman said that she and her crew “were flagged right off the bat,” and that they “demanded her notes.” She said they sifted through their vehicle and perused one of her colleague’s computer.
Goodman said that it “has a very chilling effect when you’re a journalist and you’re asked about what you’re going to talk about.”
“How many people does this happen to that we don’t know about?” Goodman asked, adding that “dissent is what will save us.”
CanWest News Service adds:
A spokeswoman with the Canada Border Services Agency said anyone entering Canada may be stopped at the border for questioning.
Faith St. John would not comment on Goodman’s case specifically, citing privacy concerns, but said there are many reasons that a person may be detained while coming into Canada.
“It’s not an accusation of a wrongdoing,” she said.
Soldiers could get uniforms for urban jungle
Camo tailored for Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver -- but not Ottawa
By David Pugliese, The Ottawa Citizen, November 18, 2009
OTTAWA — Future Canadian soldiers could be wearing new uniforms designed to provide camouflage on the streets of our largest cities.
The Defence Department will know by March what designs might work for what is being called a Canadian Urban Environment Pattern.
Those designs are to be based on the "unique requirements" of the urban settings of Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto, according to an outline of the project being co-ordinated by scientists at Defence Research and Development Canada in Suffield, Alta.
Ottawa, the nerve centre of government and the military, was left off the list because it doesn't rate as a major metropolitan centre.
"We're not trying to slight any city in the country," explained Scott Duncan, head of the soldier and systems protection group at DRDC Suffield. "We chose the three largest urban centres to have baseline data in this early development project."
He said information gathered on what patterns might work best in those three cities could also have applications for other urban centres.
Duncan said the $25,000 study to come up with camouflage patterns did not necessarily mean a new uniform would be produced for the Canadian Forces anytime soon. Once the patterns are determined, the results will be presented to the Canadian military and it will be up to the leadership on how to proceed, he added.
"If you were to refer back to the Canada First Defence Strategy, one of the principal mandates that has been given to our military is that they must provide protection to the citizens of Canada and help exercise Canadian sovereignty," Duncan said.
"Given our large urban population, should any operations be required, there's a good probability that some of them will be taking place in urban environments."
However, Eric Graves, the editor of Soldier Systems Daily, a U.S. website that reports on the uniform and equipment industry, questioned whether it made sense to have camouflage based on the landscape of Canadian cities. Various studies indicate the world's population in developing nations is becoming more focused in urban areas and military officers often talk about future warfare being in those areas.
"It makes zero sense for the Canadian military to produce an urban pattern based on their own cities unless they plan on fighting there," Graves noted.
"If that's the case, then it is the perfect choice."
Still, Graves said, if the Canadian military strategy is to continue supporting the United Nations and NATO on its operations, "the answer is that they have to take a broader look, and develop a pattern more suited to use in ungoverned or under-governed areas that are rapidly urbanizing."
The contract for the Canadian camouflage pattern was awarded to HyperStealth Biotechnology Corp. in Maple Ridge, B.C.
The original contract requirement from DRDC Suffield noted that the current military uniform to protect against chemical, biological and radiological substances was available in only the desert and temperate woodland patterns.
Clement Laforce, deputy director general for DRDC Suffield, said the patterns that would be produced are not just for chemical or biological protective suits, but also for general use for the Canadian Forces.
An urban camouflage uniform was designed in the U.S. in the 1990s based on slate grey patterns. It is used by some U.S. police tactical teams, U.S. special forces on urban missions and a number of foreign special forces and law enforcement units.
However, Duncan said uniforms designed for a U.S. urban environment might not work in a Canadian setting. "There's factors such as light, the amount and types of vegetation and weather patterns," he said. "These are all parameters you take into consideration when you develop these patterns."
The following is a Trojan horse article. Of course since these are 'experts' speaking it means that it's totally true and unassailable. Forget that many other 'experts' have clearly stated the dangers of the vaccines and the uselessness of them, that Baxter, GlaxoSmithKline and Novartis etc. are the real snake oil salesmen (at public expense). While there is validity in highlighting some of the more absurd HINI cure claims to make a fast buck, it also casts dispersions on anything other than the vaccine that might actually do what the vaccine itself will not, that is boost the immune system and lessen the likelihood of actually getting H1N1. It is also a short step from this to just outright banning any non-pharmaceutical (eg. natural remedies) treatment. See Bill C-6 and Codex Alimentarius.
Experts say don't fall for swine flu 'cures' or myths, stick with flu shot
By Pat Hewitt, The Canadian Press, Sun Nov 8, 12:10 PM
TORONTO - Pop a vitamin, ban doctors' neckties, vacuum away swine flu germs and smoke an e-cigarette to ward off H1N1.
Those are just some of the suggestions making the rounds on the Internet that have health officials and experts shaking their heads.
The Web is awash with dubious advice and various flu kits for sale as H1N1 deaths continue to rise, vaccine shortages force clinics to close and officials find themselves unable to provide a hard date for when the general public can get their flu shot.
The message from experts to those tempted to buy into such schemes - don't.
Dr. Donald Low, chief microbiologist at Toronto's Mount Sinai hospital, chuckles when he hears about some of the alternative remedies, including one that suggests putting onions around the house, like a farmer did with the Spanish flu in 1918, to absorb the virus.
"Well in 1918, what could you do? You had little else. Unfortunately that doesn't make any biological sense and there's been no scientific evidence that such a thing would actually work," said Low.
"It sounds kind of cute and might be a little obnoxious to have to have peeled onions around the house."
Still, questionable cures are so commonplace that Health Canada and the Competition Bureau were compelled last Wednesday to issue a warning advising people not to purchase products claiming to fight or prevent swine flu.
Health Canada said it was monitoring the Internet and would take action against Canadian websites selling unauthorized products.
The federal agency has only authorized three products - the H1N1 vaccine Arepanrix and the antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir). As well, the distribution of 200,000 doses of unadjuvanted H1N1 vaccine Panvax from Australia has been authorized for use in pregnant women.
"We're advising Canadians not to purchase unauthorized products that claim to fight or prevent H1N1 over the Internet or other sources," said Brent Homan of Competition Bureau.
The bureau investigates health fraud and will send letters or take other steps to fight it, he added.
U.S. federal officials recently sent warning letters to promoters of more than 140 swine flu-related products, telling them to stop making false claims. It has also posted a list online that consumers can check.

Hey Canucks, everyone loves a BBQ. Let's go to the airport and participate. How pathetic that Canada continues following in the totalitarian goose-step taking place across the world. How useless is a privacy commissioner when something that not only exposes people to a visual strip search but also damaging x-rays is considered OK and not a violation of the public's rights. We have truly fallen into the rabbit's hole. Anyone awake out there or are you still lining up for your H1N1 shot?
Canada Approves Harmful Airport Scanners
Source: Prevent Disease.com , 11-02-2009
They’re being approved all over the world. The U.S., U.K., Russia, Australia, Europe and now Canada. Scanners which have potentially devastating health effects have received the blessing of Canada’s privacy czar.
They’re being marketed worldwide as the next greatest airport scanning technology. The new scanners will allow airport security officials to lift the ban and cease current restrictions on traveling with cosmetics, liquids and other personal care products that have been considered a threat since the 9/11 attacks on the United States.
“They’ve planned this very well,” said health freedom activist Gerard Stevens. “First they spend years making everybody angry and frustrated for restricting carry-on items at airports, and now they launch deadly x-ray machines which are being fraudulently acclaimed as the savior that will allow the ban to be lifted.” Stevens claims that Canadian citizens are being conditioned like dogs into an ever increasing fear-based state of mind. “There is no longer a regard for health or freedom of choice in Canada, as people are slowly being coerced into systematically giving up their rights,” Stevens added.
Chantal Bernier, Canada’s assistant federal privacy commissioner, said Friday the national air security agency has successfully answered her office’s questions about the project. The system, tested in British Columbia at the Kelowna airport, has stirred controversy because the scanner produces ”naked” images of passengers.
“It is a very touchy issue, and we have addressed it with exactly that level of care,” Bernier told a gathering of security officials and academics.
“In our view, these privacy safeguards meet the test for the proper reconciliation of public safety and privacy,” Bernier said.
Meanwhile, many such scanners are reportedly using terahertz (THz) waves, the radiation that fills the slot in the electromagnetic spectrum between microwaves and infrared. Emerging evidence suggests that although the forces generated are tiny, resonant effects allow THz waves to unzip double-stranded DNA, creating bubbles in the double strand that could significantly interfere with processes such as gene expression and DNA replication.
“Anything that interferes with DNA replication can cause cell death,” said geneticist Andrew Lau. “Cell mutations and chromosomal aberrations would likely be more common once such scanners are implemented.” Lau stated that the cumulative radiation would likely affect passengers in the long-term.
In a preliminary assessment early last year, the air-security authority said the scanner project amounted to a “low privacy risk” due to the built-in safeguards.
The scanners are already in use at airports in cities including Amsterdam, Moscow and Phoenix. They are also found in the high-security “green zone” of Baghdad and at some U.S. courthouses and prisons.
The Syndey Morning Herald reported two weeks ago that the Melbourne Airport was implementing similar scanners that could see the genitals of passengers. Transport security authorities are trialing the new “X-ray backscatter” body scanner, which has been described by critics as a “virtual strip search”.
Tests are also being carried out on new scanning equipment in airports across the European Union and Asia with Kromek scanning products using spectral radiation.
Alright Canadians, just what is the fascination with the monarchy? These parasitic elites have nothing but contempt for the little peasants (like us) that worship them. Through out history these privileged, arrogant inbreeders have perpetuated wars, slavery, and draconian policies to further their fortunes and fame. All on the backs of the "little" people. The Queen is quite possibly the most wealthy woman on earth and produces nothing but PR for the ever starry-eyed public. Remember these people are the 'elite' and are fully behind the eugenics agenda to shear the planet of a massive number of useless eaters. I guess it's fitting all this bowing and scraping as we seem to be rolling back to the good old days of serfdom. With the New World Order pushing the ever widening gap between the haves and have-nots it might not be a bad idea to get some practice in genuflecting.
Prince Charles introduces Camilla to Canada
Mon Nov 2, 7:01 pm ET
OTTAWA (AFP) – Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, and his wife Camilla arrived in Newfoundland province Monday for the start of a Canadian tour and a look into Camilla's roots.
Prince Charles said in a speech that his 15th trip to Canada is "something rather special."
"But more special still, if I may say so, is the opportunity to introduce my wife to Canada for her first ever visit," he added.
The couple were greeted by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Governor General Michaelle Jean and other officials, and entertained at a local stadium by aboriginal drum dancers, a youth choir and a military band.
Tuesday, they will visit Canada's oldest English settlement in Cupids, which is celebrating its 400th anniversary next year, and Brigus, home of famed Arctic explorer Captain Robert Bartlett, before heading across Canada.
From November 2-12, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall are to visit 12 Canadian cities and communities, touring the 2010 Olympic Village in Vancouver and meeting with opposition leader Michael Ignatieff.
But the highlight of the trip for Camilla is expected to be a tour of Dundurn Castle in Hamilton, Ontario, built in 1835 for her great-great-great-grand-father and former prime minister of the united Province of Canada, Sir Alan MacNab.
"For my wife, it is both figuratively and literally true that Canada is in her blood since she has the good fortune to be a great, great, great granddaughter of the prime minister of the united Province of Canada, Sir Alan MacNab who lived in Hamilton, Ontario," said Prince Charles.
"We are both eagerly looking forward to discovering those family roots and of seeing her forbears' home in a few day's time."
What needs to be said, you've bought the lie about H1N1 and are lining up, with controlled "shortages", for your poison infusion. Here's some more for you.
10 Times More Thimerosal in Canadian Non-Adjuvanted H1N1 Vaccine
Kathy Czar, Infowars,November 4, 20009
According to this Public Health Agency of Canada website, the non-adjuvanted vaccine [ie: the H1N1 vaccine without the ASO3 (otherwise known as squalene-oil-water adjuvant)] will contain 10 times the amount of Thimerosal as in the adjuvanted vaccine presently being distributed. This, they want to give to young kids and pregnant women.
The excuse for this allowable mercury in the vaccine, is that it is different from the mercury you get in food, like tuna fish; and, it amounts to less than the daily allowable limit (from food).
I suggest anybody who wants to learn more about how the type of mercury in Thimerosal is more toxic than the mercury from consuming fish, please read the book “Evidence of Harm” by David Kirby. By the way, when you eat the fish, you only absorb a very small portion of the mercury. When you inject it into your muscle – of course, you have absorbed 100% of the dose.
ALERT Canadians: Toxic Ingredients in the Arepanrix H1N1 Vaccine Harm Your Health
The Flu Case Tue. Oct. 27, 09
Health Canada has authorized the sale of Arepanrix™ H1N1 vaccine based on no conclusive clinical testing. The authorization is based on the Health Canada review of available data on the quality, safety and immunogenicity of similar vaccines, which established the benefit/risk profile in favour of inoculating the Canadian population.
u8232 Read the Notice of Decision issued by Health Canada. The decision by the Health Minister was based on a belief (not qualified or informed) that immediate action is required to deal with the H1N1 risk. The assertion that the decision is based on limited clinical testing is being misapplied. There has been NO conclusive results from any clinical trials on the Arepanrix H1N1 vaccine.
u8232 This report is designed to inform you how the risks outweigh the benefits of the vaccine. It will demonstrate how the Health Canada assessment is flawed and contradictory to established research on the detrimental health effects of the vaccine ingredients contained in Arepanrix.
u8232 Description and Composition
u8232 Arepanrix™ H1N1 (AS03-adjuvanted H1N1 pandemic influenza vaccine) is a two-component vaccine consisting of an H1N1 antigen (as a suspension), and an AS03 adjuvant (as an oil-in-water emulsion).
u8232 The virus is inactivated followed by formaldehyde treatment and disrupted with sodium deoxycholate.
u8232 Preservative content:
f3 5µg (micrograms) Thimerosal USP per 0.5mL dose or 2.5 micrograms organic mercury (Hg) per 0.5mL dose
f3 The AS03 adjuvant system is composed of DL-αtocopherol, squalene and polysorbate 80 in a 3mL vial:
u8232 DL-αtocopherol: 11.86 milligrams/0.5mL dose
f3 Squalene: 10.69 milligrams/0.5mL dose,
f3 Polysorbate 80: 4.86 milligrams/0.5mL dose

Canadian Health Minister Wants 100% Of Population H1N1 Vaccinated
Goal is to get everyone to take the jab before Christmas
Steve Watson, Infowars.net, Thursday, Oct 15, 2009
Despite national polls indicating that only one third of Canadians intend to get the H1N1 flu vaccine, a Federal Health Minister says it is the government’s goal to vaccinate 100% of the population.
“My goal is to have 100 per cent of Canadians (vaccinated),” chief public health officer Dr. David Butler-Jones told reporters at the National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg.
The minister stated that the vaccine will be rolled out in the first week of November, with the goal of vaccinating everyone by the end of December.
“No step is going to be skipped,” the health minister pledged. Once the vaccine is approved, it will be shipped to the provinces and territories and local health authorities will operate immunization programs.”
Butler-Jones made the statement at a press gathering to announce a funding boost for swine flu research from the federal government in the shape of $2.4 million.
“At the end of the day, it is an individual choice,” he said. “(But) if you don’t want H1N1, get the vaccine.” Butler-Jones urged.
“We’re very fortunate as Canadians to be able to have that choice.” he added
Last week a new Canadian Press Harris-Decima poll indicated that only a third of people in Canada intend to take the shot. That figure is down from 45% in a similar poll conducted in August.
Only 11 per cent of respondents described themselves as very concerned about H1N1.
Butler-Jones scolded a portion of Canadian health workers who have also indicated that they do not intend to get vaccinated:
“Doctors and nurses are not immortal, as much as we might think we are,” he said. “And, unfortunately, if we’re not immunized, and we have influenza, we’ll take it into the nursing home and hospital and, potentially, we’ll kill our patients.”
Canadian Health Minister Wants 100% Of Population H1N1 Vaccinated 260909banner
The concerns of Canadian doctors and Health Workers have been proven justified by a study led by Dr Danuta Skowronski of the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control and Dr Gaston De Serres of Laval University, Quebec. The study found that seasonal flu jabs could double the risk of developing swine flu.
The World Health Organisation has dismissed the research as inconclusive, however some provincial and territorial public health authorities in Canada, including those in Ontario, have expressed great concern, leading to threats to delay or cancel mass vaccination programs.
Canada is to use the adjuvanted GlaxoSmithKline H1N1 vaccine Pandemrix, which contains both squalene and thimerosal, which have been linked with neurological side effects.
Pandemrix has also been “fast tracked” based on research only using “mock up” bird flu vaccines dating from 2007 and 2008.
The Canadian government, like those of the US and the UK, has agreed to protect the producer of it’s H1N1 vaccine from lawsuits over potential side effects.
The majority of cases of swine flu in Canada have turned out to be mild, with the virus having been linked to 79 deaths. The seasonal flu usually kills around 2000 people per year in Canada.
On Wednesday Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper appeared to hedge when asked if he and his family would get vaccinated.
Here you go Canucks, more reality for you dreamers. Countries all over the world have been digging mass graves and stocking plastic coffins for the 'Swine' Flu depopulation agenda, I mean, pandemic. Folks it's the shots that are going to help kill you not the virus alone. Wake up.
Health Canada says body-bag shipment was part of 'routine restocking'
By The Canadian Press
WINNIPEG - Health Canada says the body bags sent to flu-stricken reserves in Manitoba were part of "routine restocking."
Jim Wolfe, with the First Nations and Inuit health branch, says the body bags were part of a shipment of supplies intended for reserves to use over the winter.
He says reserves often have suicides, drownings and other deaths that require the body bags.
Wolfe says the department over-estimated how many bags would be needed by some reserves in preparation for the second wave of swine flu expected this fall.
He says Health Canada regrets the incident and apologizes to all First Nations for any alarm the shipment caused. The federal health minister has formally ordered a probe into why the government sent the body bags with other flu supplies, calling what happened "insensitive and offensive."
Canucks, if forced vaccinations come to a town near you run or stand up and fight. This whole affair is a construction of the Eugenicists that pilot the New World Order. Where do you think the last 'batch' of multi-flu came from, some poor chicken in Mexico? Guaranteed these vaccines will contain pathogens and likely nano-tech that will be a time bomb to either kill the population immediately or make us more susceptible to a stronger strain of virus later. Paranoia? These arrogant and twisted beings have murdered millions of people over the years why do you expect that you would be any different?
Priority list for flu shots
First Nations, five-to-40-year-olds should be vaccinated first -- experts
Sharon Kirkey, Canwest News Service, Published: Monday, June 22, 2009
Five-to-40-year-olds and Canada's aboriginal communities should be the first to get vaccinated against human swine flu, experts say as Canadian officials decide who gets priority for the flu shots.
Under Canada's official pandemic plan, the entire population would ultimately be immunized against the H1N1 swine flu.
But the vaccine will become available in batches, meaning the entire population can't be vaccinated at once. It might take four or five months to get all the vaccine we're going to get, during which time a second wave of swine flu may well be underway.
The Public Health Agency of Canada is working on a priority list, deciding where the first batches should go, and who should get the injections first. All provinces and territories would be expected to follow the national prioritization scheme.
Unlike normal seasonal flu, the H1N1 virus appears to be disproportionately infecting older children and young adults. So far the largest number of confirmed cases have occurred in people between the ages of five and 24.
"It doesn't mean they're all getting sick and need to be hospitalized, but they're getting significant illness," said Dr. Noni MacDonald, a leader in pediatric infectious diseases and a professor of pediatrics at Dalhousie University in Halifax.
British researchers reported last week that targeting children first would protect not only them, but also unvaccinated adults.

Ah, Canada's NWO dance card gets busier as the government prepares to give police the power to monitor internet activity and snoop e-mails. Now anyone that knows a bit about the internet already know that security services are monitoring email and web usage daily through programs such as Carnavore but this goes yet another step farther. Wait until your employers and block captains (in the good socialist/totalitarian system) are given the same powers, but I digress. Did the government ask the citizens about this, supposedly they work for us (LOL)?
There is no question that the web is used for crime. How many 'Dear Friend' email messages do you get every day from all these African Kings and Queens that need your help to free their fortunes up, a good percentage of which will be yours for some financial help. But this is part of the great New World Order coordinated policy on a worldwide surveillance grid and getting the useless-eaters accustomed to losing more and more of their privacy and rights. Of course it's always to fight "terrorism" but remember the protester and truth campaigner of today will be defined as a terrorist tomorrow if history and the Illuminati agenda has shown us anything.
Feds to give cops Internet-snooping powers
By Janice Tibbetts, Canwest News ServiceJune 17, 2009
OTTAWA - Police will be given new powers to eavesdrop on Internet-based communications as part of a contentious government bill, to be announced Thursday, which Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan has said is needed to modernize surveillance laws crafted during "the era of the rotary phone."
The proposed legislation would force Internet service providers to allow law enforcement to tap into their systems to obtain information about users and their digital conversations.
Police have lobbied for a new law for almost 10 years, saying that they need to access "Internet safe havens" for gangsters, sexual predators and terrorists.
"This is really not about the warrantless tracking of Canadians' Internet use," said Clayton Pecknold, of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police.
Privacy advocates and civil libertarians, however, have vocally opposed the prospect of giving police "lawful access" to the digital conversations of Canadians by being able to access such things as their text messages, e-mails, web surfing habits and Internet phone lines.
"It is an issue that has proven to be very, very controversial," said Michael Geist, a law professor at University of Ottawa and public commentator on Internet legal issues.
"The consistent criticism and concern that has been expressed is that there has to be some evidence that there is a real problem here and in the past we haven't seen that," he said.
"Why is the status quo not good enough? What investigations have been impeded?"
Federal Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddard recently warned that forcing ISPs to surrender information "is a serious step forward toward mass surveillance" that violates the rights of Canadians.
Van Loan's bill has been posted on a notice paper of pending government legislation and it is expected to be tabled in the House of Commons before MPs break for their summer recess on Friday. He has scheduled a news conference for Thursday with Justice Minister Rob Nicholson.
Earlier this year, Van Loan publicly stated his intentions to pursue legislation, which had been promised for years but relegated to a back burner by his predecessor, Stockwell Day.
When he was public safety minister, Day also promised that any federal initiative would require police to obtain a warrant to access personal information of users, such as names and addresses.
Pecknold said it is "an ongoing frequent occurrence" that police want to act to stop a crime, but they are blocked at the technological door at a time when criminals have shifted increasingly to online communications.
"Terrorist groups, pornographers and pedophile networks, illegal traffickers in weapons, drugs and human beings, money launderers and cyber criminals, Internet and telemarketing fraudsters all use technology to develop activities, perpetrate crimes and avoid detection," the police chiefs said in a November 2008 position paper supporting a new law.
Police and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service already have the power to wiretap private communications, provided they have judicial authorization, but the law does not require ISPs to grant them access.
Tom Copeland, chairman of the Canadian Association of Internet Providers, said it will be a hardship for some of the country's smaller providers to upgrade their systems to facilitate interception.
"There's a very real and significant cost," he said.
Copeland said a previous bill on Internet-based interception, introduced by the former Liberal government just before it fell in November 2005, contained an exemption for small ISPs.
Pecknold said it makes no sense to make exceptions because criminals will flock to the smaller providers.
Finance Minister Flaherty goes on record to say that the economy is on the mend and that the tooth-fairy will be making visits any day now. Meanwhile in reality-land Montreal is hosting powerful movers and shakers, the Elite's first phalanx of gofers are attending a conference on.. The New World Order. I guess Canada really has grown up or, more precisely, Canada is showing it's true colours the ones that the canucks with their Rose tinted glasses can't seem to see. Flaherty knows what the agenda is; slowly hold off the Sheeple, by buying time with lies of better days ahead and economic recovery. Once the banksters have bought up every valuable asset and the control grid is in place-bang, welcome to the new world order! Unless, we wake up in time.
If Canadians were paying attention, especially considering the "New World Order" conference taking place in Montreal, this item is simply a technique for slipping SPP/NAU propaganda/policy into the public consciousness (such as it is).
Premiers want new free trade deal with U.S. to eliminate 'Buy America'
By Julian Beltrame, The Canadian Press
OTTAWA - Canada's premiers called for a new agreement Tuesday with the United States to extend free trade to provincial, state and municipal governments as Canadian lobbyists fanned out over Washington to press U.S. legislators to soften their Buy America purchasing policies.
'Premiers believe the time has come for all orders of government in Canada and the U.S. to engage in a renewed era of collaboration to ensure open markets between the two countries," they wrote in a news release Tuesday afternoon.
The new call comes as more than a dozen Canadian trade officials waged a full-court press in the U.S. Congress in an attempt to persuade lawmakers that their protectionist legislation will cost American jobs as well as hurt Canadian businesses, some of which are owned by American companies.
The trade dispute has been brewing since the fall, but appears to have reached a crescendo in the last few weeks as the damage from the Buy America policy is becoming more apparent. On the weekend, Canadian municipalities voted to retaliate in kind if the U.S. does not back down.
The premiers did not cite the mayors' resolution directly, but said that any protectionist measure is unwelcome.
'(We) support open and inclusive discussion of all means, including the negotiation of a broad, reciprocal procurement liberalization agreement covering federal, provincial/territorial and state government measures in order to secure mutually-beneficial access and to exclude Canada from the negative effects of measures such as Buy American provisions," the premiers said.

The reason Canadians should be more concerned about this than who will win the Stanley Cup is that your neighbours to the south have been (and continue to be) raped and pillaged by bankers and politicians stealing from the public purse in unprecedented fervour and arrogance. All in public display and with total immunity-a banana republic in the making. So why should this be related?, first; no one knows how much gold is in the US version of the Mint, Fort Knox, second; fractional banking allows banks to print paper money like it's confetti and the only actual value is the amount of gold available to back it. No Gold=No Value. The real theft will be done either by bankers and/or the government, not by some employee pocketing product on the sly. So it is imperative that a thorough and impartial audit be done immediately and made available to the public.
Mint can't account for missing gold
By Ian MacLeod, Ottawa CitizenJune 2, 2009
OTTAWA- A significant quantity of gold, silver and other precious metals is unaccounted for at the Royal Canadian Mint.
External auditors are investigating a discrepancy between the mint's 2008 financial accounting of its precious metals holdings and the physical stockpile at the plant on Sussex Drive in Ottawa.
The mystery raises possibilities from sloppy bookkeeping to a gold heist.
Officials with the commercial Crown corporation are saying little and refuse to confirm the amount and value of the unaccounted for gold, silver and palladium.
"An unprecedented demand in gold in 2008 has led to an unreconciled difference between the mint's financial statements and the physical count of precious metals. There's a difference there that we're looking into," Christine Aquino, mint spokeswoman, said in a prepared statement Tuesday in response to questions from the Ottawa Citizen.
"We're taking this very seriously. We're conducting a thorough review and we're expected to have that completed within the month. (It) includes the analysis of precious metal by-products and financial data. We've allocated all necessary resources to this review."
She stressed police have not been called into what mint officials consider an internal matter. She would not say whether the gold and other metals in question were part of the refinery and bullion operation or one of the mint's three other business lines: producing Canadian circulating coins, designing and producing coinage for foreign countries, and numismatics.
"We're looking at many different angles right now," she said.

Canuck's remember your government works for the NWO and they know what the plan is. This statement from the TD Bank is prescient as the CEO, W.Edmund Clark and Deputy Chairman, Frank McKenna attended Bilderberg last month where the world financial crash was discussed and planned by the Elites and their wanna-bes.
Ottawa digging a $172-billion hole in deficits, TD Bank says
http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090602/business/federal_deficit June 2, 2009
OTTAWA - Canada is headed for a series of shocking federal deficits that will put the government more than $172 billion in the hole over the next five years, the TD Bank says in a new analysis.
The report, released Tuesday, doubles the $85 billion total in deficits projected in the Conservative government's January budget, and makes clear that it will take Ottawa at least six years to return to balance, not the four that had been anticipated.
"They are building in a much quicker speed of recovery beginning next year," said economist Derek Burleton, who wrote the report with chief economist Don Drummond, a former senior Finance Department bureaucrat.
"We have a more cautious economic recovery and that's what limits revenue growth."
The huge increase in deficits means the national debt will grow to more than $600 billion by 2012-2013 and wipe out nearly 15 years of debt reduction by Liberal and Conservative governments when the economy was growing rapidly and revenues were stronger.
It also presents future governments with tough policy choices - either cut spending on everything from social programs and industrial aid, or raise taxes - if the economy continues to stagnate.
The TD economists agree with Finance Minister Jim Flaherty's revelation last week that this year's deficit will balloon past $50 billion, mainly because of lower tax revenues and higher spending, mainly for Employment Insurance benefits and the multibillion-dollar government bailout of General Motors and Chrysler.
But that's where the agreement ends. Ottawa is still grossly underestimating the size of the financial hole it is digging over the next half-dozen years, they say.
For instance, while Flaherty is sticking to the budget estimate of a $30 billion deficit in the next fiscal year, TD Bank says it will actually be more than $45 billion. The discrepancy is even greater for 2011-2012, when the budget estimates a $13 billion shortfall and the bank a $28.3 billion deficit.
And far from returning to a small surplus in 2013-2014, the economists say Ottawa will still be $19.4 billion in the hole.
Even under a scenario where the government slices spending to two per cent growth from 2012-2013 going forward, Ottawa still doesn't balance the budget until 2015-2016, two years later than the budget's claim.
"The goal of this simple exercise is to provide an indication of the extent of spending restraint that would be required in order to return to balance over the medium-to-longer term," the report explains.
"By comparison, annual program spending growth has been run at a trend rate of six-to-eight per cent since the late 1990s."
Burleton said the analysis doesn't try to cut spending to the bone in earlier years because it assumes the economy will be too weak to allow any government to slash public expenditures.
The TD economists are not the only analysts who have questioned Flaherty's continued assertion that the budget will be balanced in four years, but the report is the first to put a number on how deep the hole could get.
The TD Bank was also the first private sector institution to openly question Flaherty's January budget, arguing that the deficit would be about $18 billion more in the first two years than projected. Even than pessimistic estimate, the economists now say, turned out to be wildly optimistic.
According to the TD Bank forecast, Canada's national accumulated national debt will cross the $600 billion threshold in 2012-13 and hit $630 billion the following fiscal year. Since the deficit will still be $19 billion in that out year, Burleton said it is safe the assume Ottawa will still be digging a fiscal hole the next year, although TD has not attempted to project beyond five years.
So Stephen Harper invites his two New World Order cronies, George W. Bush Jr., and Bill Clinton to speak at an event in TO. These two acknowledged criminals, one a war criminal and the other just a plain criminal are interviewed by...the recent Bilderberg attendee, Frank McKenna. Anyone see any connections, patterns here? You can't have the British MP George Galloway who wants to shed light on the plight of the Palestinians in Gaza and supply aid to them speak in Canada but you can hear these two criminals BS and cavort on stage. Does something smell rotten here Can-a-duh?
Canada continues to quietly check into the New World Order hotel and with the recent Bilderberg meetings decision to fast-track the global depression and to tank the dollar you will see there are Canadian's (as usual) on the guest list but don't expect to hear anything about this from your media. Forget the Mulroney side-show taking place (Mulroney, the New World Order patsie was vetted by the Bilderbergers decades ago) or the recent non-election in BC that saw 48% of the voters come out to the polls and... return the same old lackeys into the government (short memories about those 35% MLA pay raises and enhanced pension packages I guess) and turn down the possibility of the STV voting process. The pundits call it voter apathy but I think the correct interpretation is voter disgust at the self-interested trough dwellers who utterly disregard what the public needs or wants. Perhaps we should tell the friendly sales folk at Indigo books that we are not buying books there because we know where Heather goes to participate in screwing the "little people", us-but do it politely, it's the Canadian way.
Here are the Canadians on the 2009 Bilderberg Attendee list:
W. Edmund Clark, Canada (CEO TD Bank Financial Group),
Frank McKenna, Canada (Deputy Chairman of the Toronto-Dominion Bank),
J. Robert S. Prichard, Canada (CEO of Torstar Corporation and president emeritus of the University of Toronto),
Heather M. Reisman, Canada (co-founder of Indigo Books & Music Inc.),
Indira Samarasekera, Canada (President of University of Alberta, Board of Directors Scotiabank),
Sanata Seketa, Canada (University of ?).
Just an overzealous little potentate or the sign of times to come? Canadians are not immune to the Police State.
Woman cuffed, arrested for not holding escalator handrail
The Globe and Mail, May 19, 2009
MONTREAL - Anyone who has ridden an escalator and bothered to pay attention has seen - and likely ignored - little signs suggesting riders hold the grimy handrail.
In Montreal's subway system, the friendly advice seems to have taken on the force of law, backed by a $100 fine.
Bela Kosoian, a 38-year-old mother of two, says when she didn't hold the handrail Wednesday she was cuffed, dragged into a small holding cell and fined.
"It was horrible, disgusting behaviour [by police]," said Ms. Kosoian, a 38-year-old student of international law. "I did nothing wrong. They should go find the guys who stole my tires off the balcony."
Ms. Kosoian, who studies at the Universite du Quebec a Montreal, was riding an escalator down to catch a 5:30 p.m. subway from the suburb of Laval to an evening class downtown when she started rifling through her backpack looking for a fare.
Now Canucks after you read this please click over to the Current News section and read the May 6, 2009 article on the leaked agenda of the Bilderberg 2009 meeting. I submit that the governor of the Bank of Canada as well as the Finance Minister and of course the PM and likely many CEO's and upper level mandarins know what the 'plan' is. This is just buying time and suckering the public. We deserve better than this and we should be demanding it!
Unconventional moves not needed yet: Bank of Canada
Wed May 6, 7:03 PM, By Jeffrey Hodgson
TORONTO (Reuters) - The Bank of Canada sees no need yet to use unconventional policy to boost the country's slumping economy and is encouraged by signs that capital and interbank markets are thawing, Governor Mark Carney said on Wednesday.
But the head of Canada's central bank warned he expects job losses will worsen and that there will be more shocks and setbacks.
The Bank of Canada last month cut its benchmark interest rate to 0.25 percent -- its lowest level in history -- and made a conditional pledge to keep it there for more than a year.
It also laid out a framework for quantitative easing -- or printing money to buy market securities -- but disappointed many market players by not announcing specific plans.
"The position where we are right now is, we think, our overall stance in policy is sufficient -- the combination of where rates are and our conditional commitment," he told a Senate committee.
"So we don't currently envision the need to provide additional stimulus through either quantitative or credit easing."
Carney said further easing could be triggered by a "material persistent net negative shock to the economic outlook" that would cause the bank to miss its 1 percent to 3 percent target range for inflation.
The central bank defines credit easing as targeted buying of private sector assets in specific credit markets where liquidity is lacking. But this would be done without creating new money.
Carney said any such operation would only be done in close coordination with the Canadian government.
The Oxford and Harvard-trained economist and former Goldman Sachs banker warned that the Canadian economy will still face shocks and setbacks.
"We continue to expect, even though we see growth toward the end of the year and into 2010, that the employment situation will deteriorate further before it improves," he said.
Carney said he was encouraged by improving conditions in capital and interbank lending markets, which froze up with the onset of the global financial crisis.
"Canadian bank funding costs have really started to fall quite sharply," he said.
Carney said the progress of other countries in fixing their banking systems would be critical to the outlook for the Canadian economy.

Those crazy conspiracy types are going to see something nefarious in this. Just some well needed military drills for controlling civilian insurgency. I mean those crazed Iraqi/Afghani environmentalists could be a real threat. So what if Canada and the US now have a unified military alliance that guarantees the cross-border use of either's military for domestic or emergency needs. I mean everyone knows protesters are more than likely terrorists in the making and as far as Martial Law in Canada, ridiculous. You can't be too safe.
Canadian Military Quell Staged Protests In Martial Law Training
Fake explosions and vehicle searches as soldiers patrol city
Steve Watson, Infowars.net, Tuesday, May 5, 2009
The Canadian military has taken over a city for three weeks as part of an urban warfare drill that is seeing convoys of tanks rolling down streets, "hollywood" style explosions, and scenarios involving simulated terrorist attacks.
According to one report out of Medicine Hat in Alberta, Canada, the army is also using actors to pose as civilian protesters, who are described as "an environmental insurgency" involved in "insurgent attacks against the city and military, which the Provincial Reconstruction Team needs to address."
The picture opposite, showing the army penning in protesters with placards was posted on the Medicine Hat News website yesterday.
"From a public perspective, this portion of the scenario means an increase in patrols and convoys through the city," the report states.
"Residents may also see soldiers conducting vehicle searches, but this is only for military players in civilian clothing. Soldiers will not interfere with or search citizens' vehicles. There may be some minor traffic delays in parts of the city. The explosives are not real and personnel are trained in the use of these special effects."
The ongoing drills, known as "Operation Total Ram", are officially part of preparations for approximately 300 soldiers set for deployment to Afghanistan in the fall.
Clearly it is unlikely that the soldiers will be confronted by disgruntled environmental protesters in the streets of Kandahar, however.
The New World Order puppet and traitor to the Canadian people, PM Harper has put another plank in the New World Order superstructure. Remember that 'free' trade is a euphemism for global government and international slavery. There are to be 4 primary trading regions in this elite castle; European Union, Asian Pacific Union, Pan American Union and the African Union. So on the surface this all looks benign enough and this is exactly how the totalitarian tip-toe is pulled off under our noses.
Canada and EU sign deal to open aviation market
By David Brunnstrom
PRAGUE (Reuters) - Canada and the European Union signed an "open skies" pact on Wednesday under which airlines from the two trading partners will be able to fly freely between any airport in the 27-country EU and any in Canada.
"This will generate major benefits for consumers and airlines ... and will make the EU-Canada aviation market one of the most open in the world," European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso told a news conference.
The deal will replace an existing patchwork of bilateral agreements between Canada and European states, which include restrictions on routes, prices and the number of weekly flights.
The agreement will also ease restrictions on control and ownership of airlines and follows a similar pact between the European Union and the United States in March last year.
The deal came at the start of talks on a trade pact worth an additional $27 billion each year to the combined economies of Canada and the EU, suffering from weakening trade amid the financial crisis.
"We were trying to reach this agreement somewhere from the 1970s," Prime Minister Stephen Harper said of the trade deal. "Finally this agreement we have is a glimmer of light in the darkness of the global recession."
A study by the executive European Commission suggested the aviation agreement would generate an additional 500,000 passengers in its first year, plus over 1,000 jobs and economic benefits of at least 72 million euros ($96 million).
Canada already plans to raise the foreign ownership limit to 49 percent of an airline's voting stock from 25 percent -- a move welcomed by the country's main carriers, Air Canada and WestJet Airlines Ltd, which want more inward investment.
In a later phase of the deal, investors will be able to set up and control airlines in each other's markets, and in a final stage, airlines will be able to fly freely within each other's markets and onwards from there to other regions.

Canadians prefer to stay blissfully ignorant of the role their country is to, and does play in the NWO shell game. NATO (as mentioned by researchers such as David Icke) is to be the New World Order army, witness the many places around the world already where NATO forces are engaged either in combat or policing/security functions.
Canada: In Service To The Pentagon And NATO At Home And Abroad
by Rick Rozoff, Global Research, April 17, 2009
Canada is the only nation in the world whose mainland borders three of the world's five oceans: The Arctic, The Atlantic and the Pacific.
The United States only secured access to the Arctic Ocean with the acquisition of non-contiguous Alaska from Russia in 1867 and Russia can only access the Atlantic through the Barents and Norwegian Seas.
The three oceans in question are exactly those in and over which Russia has recently resumed strategic air patrols and naval and submarine deployments starting in late 2007 after a hiatus of almost twenty years.
Should East-West tensions parallel - or exceed - those of the Cold War era Canada will be on several frontlines and is now being actively prepared for just such an eventuality.
The campaign to employ Canada as a spearhead against Russia in the Arctic and generally in furtherance of NATO's plans for the Northwest Hemisphere will have little to do with the word that has become a shibboleth for Canadian Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Liberal opposite numbers alike, sovereignty, and still less with defense.
Instead the nation's role, given its unique geographical location, will be as the West's advance guard in a geostrategic showdown in the northern latitudes.
Not that Canada's service to the United States and NATO collectively is limited to its own coasts and the oceans they abut.
Despite rhetoric to the contrary by two of the country's last three prime ministers, Liberal Jean Chretien and Tory Stephen Harper, aimed at domestic audiences and for votes in parliamentary elections, about the nation's supposed proud tradition of independence, if there has ever been a nation that never truly possessed a foreign policy of its own - particularly in respect to military conflicts - that country is Canada.
From supplying its former colonial master Britain with a disproportionate amount of troops in both world wars to following the lead of Britain and the United States in wars from Korea in 1950 to Yugoslavia in 1999 to Afghanistan at present, Canada has rarely balked at demands for political acquiescence and military complicity from its Anglo-Saxon big brothers and the NATO alliance of which it is a founding member.
If in early 2003 Ottawa refused to supply troops for the invasion of Iraq it aided that effort in other ways beforehand, including supporting NATO's deployment of Patriot missiles to Turkey on the eve of the war, and afterward by assigning personnel to the NATO Training Mission - Iraq.
Many suspect that then prime minister Jean Chretien's government avoided potential fallout on the home front by reaching a quid pro quo with Washington whereby Canada would avoid the Iraqi quagmire by stepping into the Afghan crevice. It took over the International Security Assistance Force (which had been officially turned over to NATO) mission in the capital of Kabul in 2003 and two years later deployed over 2,000 troops to the southern province of Kandahar, Afghanistan's main battlefield from that time onward. The initial 1,950 troops Canada assigned to ISAF was the largest single contingent at the time.
Canada signed both a Faustian pact and a fool's bargain. Most all non-American troops have been pulled out of Iraq or will be soon, with the majority of the contributing nations focused on increasing deployments to Afghanistan for an expanding South Asian war, while Canadian forces have been bogged down in Afghanistan for almost seven and a half years and notwithstanding claims by Ottawa officials to have them withdrawn by 2011 may well be there indefinitely.
117 Canadian soldiers have been killed in the Afghan war, about 10 per cent of total Western military deaths, the number and ratio out of proportion to Canada's population of a little over 33 million.
The death toll is the highest the country has experienced since the Korean War (when 516 soldiers were killed) and the first combat fatalities in over half a century. The Korean War was the prototype for almost sixty years of US and NATO military campaigns fought far from North America and Europe by self-defined coalitions of the willing. Direct Western military involvement began in July of 1950, fifteen months after the formation of NATO, and Korea was the testing ground for the new alliance with, in addition to US forces, troops from NATO allies Canada, Belgium, Britain, France, Luxembourg and the Netherlands participating. All seven nations lost troops, as did Greece and Turkey, themselves having just been first subjected to the sanguinary effects of the Truman Doctrine and for whom participation in the Korean War was the precondition for their induction into NATO in 1952.
The model was replicated in the post-Cold War period with the two wars against Iraq in 1991 and 2003, the 78-day air war against Yugoslavia in 1999 and the endless war in Afghanistan that commenced in October of 2001.
Canada contributed 4,500 troops to the first Persian Gulf War, including 2,700 stationed in the area, and ran its own national complement to the US-led Operation Desert Storm, Operation Friction.
In 1999 Ottawa, without a parliamentary resolution or declaration of war, provided eighteen warplanes for the merciless terror bombing of Yugoslavia and stationed 800 troops in neighboring Macedonia for a possible land invasion.
(It joined most of its NATO allies in recognizing Kosovo's secession from Serbia in February of last year, a detestable act of duplicity given the Canadian federal government's ruthless use of all means fair and foul to stifle the independence drive in its province of Quebec.)
With the expanding war in Afghanistan, though, Canada has returned to combat in Asia, ground operations and casualties for the first time since Korea.
Late last year it deployed six Mi-8 helicopter gunships, its first combat wing deployment, the significance of which was described by Brig.-Gen. Denis Thompson, commander of Task Force Kandahar: "Now we're not talking about an individual unit which would be the army equivalent of a battalion. This is the equivalent of committing a brigade to overseas operations. I don't think this has occurred since the Korean time (war)." (1)
At the beginning of this year with the addition of "six Chinooks, newly retrofitted with heavy machine guns...eight hefty, even more heavily-armed, Griffons to act as backup" the escalation was "Canada's biggest air force presence in a combat zone since the end of the Second World War." (2)
Attack helicopters weren't the only addition to the deadly arsenal. In the summer of 2007 Canada leased 20 Leopard tanks from Germany for the erstwhile ISAF "peacekeeping mission" in Afghanistan and signed a deal with the Netherlands to purchase 100 more.
In March of this year Canada started flying Israeli-made Heron drones capable of carrying weapons, bombs and guided missiles. The head of the Canadian Air Force, Lt.-Gen. Angus Watt, said on the occasion: "Armed UAVs [Unmanned Aerial Vehicles] with air to ground weapons are a valuable capability and it's a good option to have." (3)
Drones have been used expensively by the United States over the past year not only in Afghanistan but in Northwest Pakistan, resulting in the deaths of over 500 suspected militants and Pakistani civilians. The estimated 2,800 Canadian troops in Afghanistan are stationed in Kandahar Province which borders Pakistan's Baluchistan Province. Threats of US missile attacks in Baluchistan have been sounded over the past several weeks and the prospect of Canada following up on them is more likely than not.
Military hubris has its limits: Pakistan has a population more than five times that of Canada and nuclear weapons into the bargain.
Not that dangers of that magnitude are likely to deter a government whose recently retired but then just appointed Chief of the Defence Staff General Rick Hillier, who a year earlier was in command of NATO's ISAF, referred to his intended targets in Afghanistan as "detestable murderers and scumbags" and who said of the Canadian armed forces he was in charge of: "We're not the public service of Canada. We're not just another department. We are the Canadian Forces, and our job is to be able to kill people."
Afghanistan - South and Central Asia in general - is Canada's largest current military operation but hardly its only one. In fact it has forces deployed throughout what Western government officials and their policy think tanks for years have dubbed the Broader Middle East and the arc of instability - from Mauritania on the Atlantic Ocean to Kazakhstan on Russia's and China's borders - and beyond. Far beyond.

Well comrade Canadian proletariat, your political elite, the next generation that is, from the seed of the Communist, Jesuit/Rosicrucian, Club of Rome and New World Order servant P.E.Trudeau is now sprouting the rhetoric of the NWO catalogue.
Why Canadians should care what Jr. has to say at all is a question unto itself. Obama's 'voluntary' mandatory youth public service corp. which is a more 'in-your-face' version is right out of the Maoist handbook and another example of double-speak, and is nothing more than a legislated form of slavery.
This has nothing to do with the genuine desire of people to volunteer and give their time and energy for the betterment of other beings, this is something quite different. Even if a law is not passed to force people to 'volunteer' the 'requirement' to do so either for student loans, University admissions, Driver's licenses or even peer pressure is coercion.
Youth called to serve
Justin Trudeau's proposal has fans across the spectrum
James Cowan, National Post Published: Saturday, April 11, 2009
Justin Trudeau gave a speech in Toronto this week at 8 o'clock in the morning, in a basement conference room of a downtown hotel, in front of 45 business people strewn between a dozen half-empty tables. Neither the dim setting nor early hour were uplifting, but the rookie politician, with his gift of earnestness, did his best to inspire the crowd.
"If any young person wants to serve their country -- typically between high school and university for a year -- they should be given the opportunity to do so," Mr. Trudeau said, promoting his plan to create a nationwide battalion of teenage volunteers.
He envisioned a renewed national commitment to volunteer service, "where we have young people discovering their capacity to make changes in the world, while we have communities receiving this influx of powerful, energetic, committed volunteers wanting to make a difference."
Among the legacies of Mr. Trudeau's famous father, Pierre, is Katimavik, a federally funded youth service organization that was founded on his watch. It died, temporarily, amid the cost-cutting of the 1980s recession, but in this latest economic downturn, something of its spirit is being reborn.
Justin Trudeau last month tabled a private member's motion in Parliament that would lay the foundation for a national volunteer service policy for young people. The proposal has garnered some praise from Conservatives and the NDP alongside Mr. Trudeau's own Liberal party, suggesting it is more than an airy-fairy notion put forward by the idealistic son of a former prime minister.
Barack Obama, the U. S. President, has also launched a crusade to reignite his own country's commitment to national service.
And citizens are heeding the call. This is not just a bunch of politicians offering variations on John F. Kennedy's "Ask not what your country can do for you ..." axiom. A survey recently released by Katimavik found 89% of respondents now felt Canadians have a responsibility to contribute to the betterment of their communities and the country. More than 8,500 public service events took place across the United States on Martin Luther King Day this year, up from 5,000 in 2008. And applications to AmeriCorps, a U. S. national volunteer service that functions as a domestic Peace Corps, tripled over the past year.
Organizers within the volunteer sector cite a confluence of political and economic factors for the interest in their work, starting with Mr. Obama's advocacy. Days before his inauguration, Mr. Obama called upon Americans to make "a renewed commitment to serving their community and their country." The effect was dramatic, according to Siobhan Dugan, a press officer with the Corporation for National and Community Service, the federal agency that oversees the AmeriCorps. "When he talked about service, there was a huge jump in AmeriCorps applications, right away," she said.
Mr. Obama has made serving one's country seem both hip and once again noble. Actor Kal Penn left his role on House, the hit television show, this week to take a position within Mr. Obama's administration. Admittedly, Mr. Penn will not be volunteering, but his switch from Hollywood actor to mid-level bureaucrat seems to be motivated by a commitment to public service. "There's not a lot of financial reward in these jobs," he told Entertainment Weekly. "But, obviously, the opportunity to serve in a capacity like this is an incredible honour."
OK Canadian's if you haven't been following what has been happening in the US with the military becoming more and more visible in domestic policing and emergency use, supposedly to assist the police and emergency services which is completely against the Posse Comitatus Act (repealed by Bush Jr), then the use of Reservists for "emergency" duty, particularly that of securing perimeters sounds totally logical. Well the Illuminati are nothing if not logical and as you read the article bear in mind that most of the terrorist acts referred to are most often created and executed by Intelligence agencies supposedly working for the protection, not the murder and terrorization of the citizens.
If you don't believe this then there is ample evidence pointing this out in books, films and web pages, if you still refuse to believe it then go turn on SeeBSee and get your dose of government sponsored/politically correct non-information. You see the Elites plan for this depression to get so bad and deep that people will (even in Canada) be up in arms and out on the streets. What do governments do when citizens get angry enough to hit the streets?-call out the police, and the military.
Couple that with the pandemics that are planned to kill off great swaths of the population and virtually lock-down whole cities you can see that they need a lot of 'muscle' to keep the sheep herded.
When the snake-oil salesman, PM Harper gets up there and points a rosy picture for the economy and a bright future he knows full well what the game plan really is and as such is guilty, if nothing else, of misleading the public. The age old technique of using the sheeple to monitor and police themselves is just expanded to Banana republic proportions when you get reservists imprisoning and controlling their own neighbours. Talk about a power trip (to hell).
Military readies reservists for threats to 'domestic front'
Adrian Humphreys, National Post, March 04, 2009
Reserve units across Canada are being trained in securing perimeters in case of an emergency. The Canadian military has embarked on a wide-ranging plan to turn its reserve soldiers into focused units trained and equipped to respond to a nightmarish array of domestic threats, including terrorist "dirty bomb" attacks, biological agent containment, Arctic catastrophes and natural disasters.
The creation of seven units within each region of the country -- including unusual all-terrain vehicle (ATV) squadrons and perimeter security teams to cordon areas of potential devastation -- prepares reserve soldiers for operations on the "domestic front" while freeing regular force soldiers to concentrate on foreign battlefields.
"There is a recognition, certainly within the military and we have heard the government say, that domestic security is the number one priority. A number of these conclusions come from the post-9/11 world we live in," said Brigadier-General Jean Collin, commander of the army in Ontario, during an exclusive interview with the National Post.
"The reality is an army needs to train, an army needs to equip itself and an army needs to be ready."
The remodeling of the reserves will see the development of specialist units in four of the military's regional divisions -- Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario and the West. The units will include perimeter security teams prepared to cordon off an area if there was an atomic detonation, nuclear accident or similar source of wide contamination and "Arctic response" groups that are trained and equipped to live and operate in the far north.
The changes highlight both a renewed focus on domestic security and the increased role of reservists, who are part-time volunteer soldiers augmenting the ranks of full-time soldiers, who are referred to as the "regular" forces. The place of reserves in the Canadian Forces in Afghanistan was shown yesterday when one of three soldiers killed by a roadside bomb was a reservist from Ontario.
"Some of the stuff we are now asking the reservists to do is because we need them; because the regular force simply does not have sufficient people, sufficient resources, to do it on their own," said Brig-Gen. Collin.
"And the reservists have certainly demonstrated that they have the capability to do all this and more."
Brig-Gen. Collin, who has served in Bosnia and Afghanistan, has also been a special advisor to the Chief of the Defence Staff on homeland security issues.
The military divides operations into two broad divisions: away missions, such as the action in Afghanistan, called "expeditionary operations," and home missions, such as helping with floods in Winnipeg, called "domestic operations."
"The lead -- the main contributor -- for expeditionary operation is the regular force. They form the core for expeditionary operations and are augmented by reservists," said Brig-Gen. Collin.
"What we have now said is that for domestic operations, the core will actually be provided by the reserve force, augmented by the regular force.
The reserves take a dominant role in domestic operations in the future, once they are properly equipped and trained to do so."
The remodeling of the reserves, ordered at the start of 2009, is expected to take two to three years to complete.
The remodeling will also likely see the reserves play a larger role in domestic security situations, including the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver and the G8 summit of world leaders that has been announced for 2010 at a resort in Huntsville, 220 kilometres north of Toronto, he said.
The national plan places the reserves at the forefront of grim scenarios that are the stuff of apocalyptic Hollywood movies.
"We all know the threat from dirty bombs, chemical contaminants. This is certainly one of the more dangerous situations that can arise," said Brig.-Gen. Collin.
"You can certainly get it from a terrorist act. You can also get it from a man-made disaster. You can get nuclear contamination from a nuclear power plant -- Three Mile Island, Chernobyl.
"We are training to establish a perimeter.Do I see a scenario when we might be obliged to keep people in? Probably. You need to be trained to be able to make sure that you don't become a casualty in the process of doing that security."
The Arctic units -- companies of about 120 people in each region, that can come together as a single force if needed -- poses a challenge of a different sort, primarily training for the harsh conditions of the far north.
"We are going to have up to an entire battalion of soldiers who are prepared to go live and operate in the north and that entire battalion will come from the reserves. We are having them trained now, as we speak, to operate in the north," said Brig.-Gen. Collin, who himself just returned from a visit to several remote aboriginal communities where he suffered though the deep cold in a military-issue tent.
"It was bloody cold... But you can dress, equip and operate up there if you know what you're doing," he said.
Currently, about 120 reservists from southern Ontario are involved in Exercise Polar Warrior, a week of training in Arctic warfare and survival in Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug, a First Nations community on Big Trout Lake. To equip the ATV Squadron, the first commercial vehicles are arriving in the coming months. They will not be armed or painted in camouflage and are not intended for combat use. They could be deployed in rural and remote areas to traverse wooded ravines or in an urban setting that has suffered devastation, such as an earthquake or massive explosion.
The plans also call for turning over responsibility for the force's Reverse Osmosis Water Purification Units -- mobile, high-capacity machines for cleaning water to drinkable standards -- to the reserves. The machines have been used abroad, in Sri Lanka helping victims of the 2004 tsunami, and also domestically in Kashechewan, Ont., when the community's water supply was tainted by E. coli bacteria in 2005.
David Bercuson, director of the Centre for Military and Strategic Studies at the University of Calgary, said the changes make sense given the current global security situation.
"Reserves are all local and spread out across the country. It seems to me the people best situated to help the first responders would be the reservists. It makes a lot of sense. Also, the regular force is so stretched and stressed right now," said Mr. Bercuson.
Mr. Bercuson was surprised to hear, however, of envisioned scenarios that might require a form of constabulary or policing function for reserves in civilian containment and security.
"People in Ottawa sometimes forget that the reserves are volunteers. If you try to change the reserves in ways they don't want to change, they just might not show up."
More BS that insults intelligent Canadians and helps buy time for the New World Order folks to get their machinery into place.
Canada will recover in global recession faster than others, Harper says
By Allison Jones, The Canadian Press
BRAMPTON, Ont. - Canada will emerge from the global recession before any other country and in a stronger economic position than ever, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Tuesday as his government aggressively moved to sell its fiscal plan.
The rosy picture Harper painted of the ability to not only recover but profit from the worldwide crisis came as he dispatched two of his top lieutenants to deliver variations of the same message: the Conservative stimulus package will put the country on the right track and the opposition must support it.
"Canada was the last advanced country to fall into this recession," Stephen Harper told a business crowd in Brampton, Ont. "We will make sure its effects here are the least severe, and we will come out of this faster than anyone and stronger than ever."
The crisis, ultimately, is an "opportunity to position ourselves so that when the recovery comes, we're among the first to catch the wave."
While Harper positioned Canada at the forefront of economic relief, he also said our fortunes depend on those of the United States.
"We will not turn the corner on this global recession until the American financial sector is fixed," he said.
Across town, Industry Minister Tony Clement echoed that sentiment following a speech to the C.D. Howe Institute which focused - like his boss's address - on the government's plan to navigate the crisis.
Only American consumers can save the flattened auto industry from extinction, he said.
"If you're asking me what will save the auto sector in North America, it's what American consumers do and buy, not just what Canadians do and buy."
In Ottawa, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty delivered the hard-sell as he demanded that the Liberal-dominated Senate pass his budget bill and its $40-billion stimulus package.
"I'm going to urge you to deal with this bill this week and don't go on holidays until you deal with it," Flaherty told the Senate finance committee.
The simultaneous sorties by the prime minister and his two most senior economic ministers in three different locations represent an aggressive shift into selling the economic plan.
Harper's own MPs have complained privately that there has been too much gloom and not enough reassurance about Canada's economic future in the six weeks since the budget was delivered.
The prime minister took on a more prominent role after the Jan. 27 federal budget and has been visiting various pockets of the country to make stimulus-funding announcements.
He spent this past weekend at his official residence typing away at Tuesday's 3,300-word address - one of the rare occasions when Harper has written a speech from start to finish.
At least one economist agreed with Harper's assertion that Canada is in a better position to weather the economic crisis and will not be hit as hard as other nations.
Still, TD chief economist Don Drummond said he was "less certain about the bit that we will recover faster."
Canada's economy is inextricably linked to the global economy through our exports to the United States and it's hard to imagine Canada recovering faster, Drummond said.
"In our forecast we have the recoveries occurring simultaneously."
TD has predicted Canada's economic troubles will ease at the end of the year, but Drummond said that may change.
"We will be putting out our forecast on the 12th and we go through five key assumptions that one has to make, but if any of those don't get fulfilled then I think it's going to get delayed beyond that."
Oh noble Canucks please tell me you see what's happening here? Canada is the lap-dog of the US, the US is the lap-dog of Israel and Israel is the lap-dog of the Illuminati Elite. In order to justify a war with Iran and Pakistan it is important to once again bring up the spectre of the evil Communist empire (funded by the very same Illuminati families that brought you Capitalism, Fascism etc) and its connection with these soon to be enemies of the western/wastern world. Harper is just doing what he's told to do.
Remember the objective clearly articulated by Albert Pike a hundred years ago, is to achieve a 3rd World War. Just like every other world war before it-problem-reaction-solution, in this case the final solution the New World Order. Our poly-titians are putting their own personal gain ahead of the well-being and life of every citizen. Think about that when you go through the farcical ritual known as 'elections'.
Canadian jets scrambled to intercept Russian bomber before Obama visit
CBC News, Friday, February 27, 2009
Canadian fighter jets scrambled to intercept a Russian plane approaching Canadian airspace shortly before U.S. President Barack Obama visited Ottawa, the defence minister said Friday.
Peter MacKay said he wasn’t accusing Russia of deliberately timing the flight to coincide with the visit — when Canadian security was focused in Ottawa — but he did call it a "strong coincidence."
"It was a strong coincidence which we met with … CF-18 fighter planes and world-class pilots that know their business," said MacKay.
"[The pilots] sent a strong signal they should back off and stay out of our airspace."
MacKay confirmed the incident at a news conference Friday in Ottawa with the chief of the defence staff, Gen. Walter Natynczyk, and the commander of NORAD, Gen. Gene Renuart.
The CF-18s took off from Cold Lake, Alta., on Feb. 16 after North American Aerospace Defence Command (Norad) detected the Russian Bear long-range bomber headed for Canadian airspace. The aircraft never did enter North American airspace.
However, Russian Defence Ministry spokesman Alexander Drobyshevskiy said Friday the planned flight of the Russian long-range strategic aircraft was part of "regular military training and air patrol plans in the northern latitudes.
"All the international flights regulations were strictly respected," he said in a statement. "Therefore, the very possibility of a violation of Canadian airspace is out of [the] question. The adjacent countries were informed of that flight in good time."

Yevgeniy Khorishko, a spokesman at the Russian Embassy in Washington, also appeared to downplay the incident.
"It was a routine flight over international airspace," he told CBC News.

The totalitarian tip-toe or these days, jack-boot marathon, is often accomplished through the use of legislation that is designed up front to look like it protects citizens and makes their country, streets etc. safe (Can you say Homeland Security?). It becomes difficult at times to separate the true need from the agenda particularly when the typical scenario is one based on an obvious problem that needs an immediate solution. Canadians are just as, or more gullible to this type of manipulation than Americans.
Canada's expensive and sly gun control laws would not be nearly as easy to pull off in the US. Good old peaceful and law abiding Canucks essentially handed over their only defence against an authoritarian state (don't think voting liberal will get you anything cool-aid drinkers) under the guise of stopping criminals (who have consistent access to firearms ) from breaking into citizens homes and stealing their guns- hey, I've got some ocean front land in the Gobi if you're interested.
Gang violence is a real and extremely dangerous fact in many big Canadian cities but so is the New World Order technique of encouraging and funding gangs through illicit drug arrangements, sloppy immigration, and downright collusion. Let's not forget that the added whammy of the disintegrating family, economic and social pressures along with the media sponsored 'hipness' of being tough and hanging with the posse just exacerbates the problem, and these are all standard Illuminati agenda hand-book techniques.
What Canadian's really need to look at in this proposed legislation is the change in requirements for 'wire-tapping'. I think most of you know that your phone conversations, cell and land as well as email are monitored but this lets not only CSIS and other government agencies who can do that now have access to the data, but the boys and girls in black who troll around the city. It's a slippery slope and once the door is ajar then your privacy (what remains of it) can slip away out the widening crack before you know it.
Police need more tools to fight gang violence
Gary Mason, February 26, 2009
Police and Crown prosecutors involved in the war on gangs in B.C. will all tell you they simply don't have the necessary weapons to fight these guys. Mr. Harper surely will hear this himself.
One of the biggest challenges police have when it comes to prosecuting something like a gang-related shooting is the lack of witnesses. No one wants to utter a word, even the person being shot at. There is a code of silence in the gang underworld. This means that the police's only hope of getting the goods on these people is through wiretaps.
But the burden of proof needed by a police officer to get the judicial authority to put the wiretap in place has become exceedingly onerous over the years. A couple of years ago, the head of the RCMP gang task force said it took nine officers 250 hours to prepare an affidavit for one authorization.
The laws around wiretapping, specifically to intercept gang activity, have to change. That is what B.C. Attorney-General Wally Oppal is lobbying for in Ottawa today - a more modern and less onerous protocol around wiretap affidavits.

Yah, yah, yah Canucks. Do UFO's exist?, yes, does this story perhaps have more to do with a certain Illuminati scenario outlined in Project Blue Beam to start conditioning people to accept the concept of aliens in our world to set the stage for the great alien invasion? More than likely.
UFO sightings soar in Canada
Last Updated: Friday, February 20, 2009 | 9:47 PM ET,The Canadian Press
Strange floating objects and eerie bright lights were among the record number of Unidentified Flying Objects that Canadians spotted in the sky in 2008, according to Winnipeg-based Ufology Research.
The volunteer group of a half-dozen researchers said Canadians made a total of 1,004 UFO sightings in 2008 - up more than 25 per cent from the previous year and the highest number in the 20 years Ufology has been keeping track.
"It's astonishing to me that we had such a dramatic increase," spokesman Chris Rutkowski said.
"It could be an indication that there's actually something up there seen in greater numbers than ever before, it could be that there are perhaps more military flights, it could be... that people are more able to access websites where they can report the UFOs."
Stars, airplanes account for most sightings
Ufology combs official and unofficial sources for its data - everything from Defence Department reports to videos posted on YouTube. The majority of sightings turn out to be airplanes, stars or some other run-of-the-mill source.
But between one and 10 per cent of sightings every year remain mysterious and enticing to UFO fans.
"It doesn't necessarily mean that the aliens are here, but it suggests there is a real physical phenomenon that is being observed and should be taken a little more seriously by scientists and the lay public alike," said Rutkowski, who holds a degree in astronomy.
"It's not something that is necessarily out of this world, it could be something from this world, but at this point we simply don't know."
Floating car in Saskatchewan
One of the big mysteries from 2008 occurred near Wadena, Sask., last March, when people in two vehicles reported seeing an object the size of a car float quickly across a rural highway. Witnesses said the object never touched the ground, and no tracks were found.
"There was no cross-street or cross-road at that point, which really puzzled us, and the witnesses were absolutely flabbergasted by what they had seen," Rutkowski said.
More recently, Winnipegger Sheryl Ducharme, 39, saw some strange lights while out walking one cold night.
"It wasn't blinking like a plane, and it was so bright that it caught my eye," she said.
"I watched it for maybe 45 seconds, and then it shot up into the sky so fast. It just shot straight up and disappeared. And it was so striking that I gasped because it was just something I had never seen before."
Ducharme said she has always been open to the idea of extraterrestrials, and isn't sure what she saw.
"Perhaps it was some sort of spacecraft, or some sort of military [plane]. But there was absolutely no sound."
Ontario residents were the busiest sky-watchers in 2008, with 334 reported sightings. British Columbia placed second with 272 and Alberta was third with 157.
Here's the likely scenario. Obamanation gets everyone's back up with his 'Buy American' rhetoric (now he must mean Burgers, Soft drinks and Hollywood films since everything else has been moved off-shore hasn't it?). So the logical conclusion after a few intervening steps will be to just integrate the US, Canada, and Mexico in one big happy North American Union and that will solve everything. Bells will ring, good faeries will shower the verdant lands with blessings and all will live happily ever after.
Harper, Calderon to fight U.S. protectionism
By Jennifer Ditchburn, The Canadian Press
OTTAWA - Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mexico's president have agreed to work together to fight protectionism.
The leaders of the two countries with perhaps the most to lose from protectionism in the United States talked by phone on Wednesday.
Harper called Felipe Calderon to discuss concerns about a "Buy American" clause in the $900-billion stimulus package before the U.S. Congress.
The bill stipulates that public works projects must buy American-made iron, steel and manufactured goods.
It has been watered down to say that such measures must not contravene international trade agreements, but there's still plenty of room for concern from the NAFTA partners.
A spokesman for the Mexican government said Thursday the leaders underlined that they are completely on the same page when it comes to keeping trade flowing freely.
"(They) spoke of the risks implied in yielding to pressures to implement protectionist policies in trade matters, agreeing to maintain ongoing dialogue to avoid such action," said Alberto Lozano, press attache with the Mexican Embassy in Ottawa.
The two also agreed on the "need to improve competition in North America to accelerate economic recovery in the countries of the region."
Dimitri Soudas, a spokesman for Harper, added in a news release that the two would work closely on the issue before a G-20 leader's summit this April in London.
Canada, the U.S. and Mexico have been working for several years on a Security and Prosperity Partnership that is supposed to enhance trade by eliminating more red tape.
Harper and Calderon have developed a strong relationship. Harper made an important diplomatic gesture in 2007 when he attended Calderon's inauguration amid a political crisis in that country. Lozano said Calderon congratulated Harper on the passage of his budget this week
Wednesday's call sends a further public signal to their neighbour that they are prepared to defend NAFTA vigorously .
Canadian officials have said they believe the "Buy American" measures violate trade agreements.
Since NAFTA was signed in 1993, trade among the three countries has tripled.
Calderon and his top economic advisers met President Barack Obama in Washington just five days before his inauguration last month. Last week, Calderon took to the international stage at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland to push for a concerted campaign against protectionism.
Calderon and Harper are expected to meet Obama at an annual trilateral meeting this year in Mexico.
Canada encouraged by softened "Buy American" plan
TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada said on Thursday it was encouraged by the U.S. Senate's move to soften the "Buy American" provision in its $900 billion stimulus bill, but said it would maintain diplomatic pressure on Washington to keep protectionist measures out of the plan as it moves forward.
The "Buy American" provision would have required that all public works projects funded by the stimulus package use only U.S.-made iron, steel and manufactured goods.
But, under the amendment passed by U.S. Senate on Wednesday, the provision must be "applied in a manner consistent with U.S. obligations under international agreements."
Canadian Trade Minister Stockwell Day told reporters on Thursday the amendment was "a great step forward."
"Respecting the fact that this is their legislation, we want to continue to impress upon them the things that we think are necessary to avoid either a North American or even a global negative reaction to that legislation," Day added.
The bill still has to be reconciled with the version passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, which did not include a guarantee on trade obligations.
Day said Canada shipped about C$11 billion ($9 billion) in iron and steel products to the United States, in various forms, in 2007.
The Senate moved to amend the "Buy American" provision after several countries, including Canada, Japan and Australia, expressed concern over the legislation, and President Barack Obama warned the original language could trigger a trade war.
Senator John McCain, an Arizona Republican, urged the Senate to exclude any "Buy American" provision as part of the stimulus package, but his amendment was rejected.
"It would have been nice to see that go through," said Day. "It would have put some extra weight on the amendment that's already there, but we are pleased with progress so far."
The United States has made commitments under the North American Free Trade Agreement and the World Trade Organization to provide trading partners such as Canada, Mexico, Japan and the European Union with access to its government procurement market and has received similar commitments in exchange.
But other countries such as China, Russia, India and Brazil are not party to those pacts so would not have any protection from the amendment passed by the Senate on Wednesday.

Well Canucks let's see what's happened recently; because the opposition threatened to gang-up and take over the government Harper has the Canadian parliment dissolved by the Queen's authority through her agent the Governor General, then with their trump card quashed the Liberals go and appoint a new leader who happens to be an elite, globalist and supporter of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Does anyone sense a certain unhinging of the so called democratic process here? Now let me assure you ladies and gentlemen that Harper knew long before the election that there was going to be a depression, why do you think he wanted to get the election over with? At least 2 years ago it was agreed at Bilderberg that the economies of the west and the world would be imploded and a world wide depression generated in order to speed up the implementation of the New World Order. Don't believe me, then read Daniel Estulin's expose of Bilderberg. Remember both Harper and Dion (plus many highly placed Canadian industrialists) have attended Bilderberg and are also very often members of the CFR or the Trilateral Commission. Read the info on SPP. Do you really think that things like depressions, wars, etc., happen randomly and without premediation? If you do then turn CBC on and go back to sleep.
Depression possible: Canadian PM
Yahoo news, Dec.16, 2008
OTTAWA (AFP) - Prime Minister Stephen Harper delivered a grim forecast for the Canadian economy, saying in an interview with broadcaster CTV a depression is possible.
"The truth is, I've never seen such uncertainty in terms of looking forward to the future," Harper told CTV. "I'm very worried about the Canadian economy."
Asked whether a depression was possible, he answered: "It could be, but I think we've learned enough about depression; we've learned enough from the 1930s to avoid some of the mistakes that caused a recession in 1929 to become a depression in the 1930s."
A depression is often described as a prolonged economic slump in which output drops more than 10 percent.
Unemployment in Canada hit 27 percent at the peak of the Great Depression in 1933 and between 1929 and 1933 Canada's gross national product fell 43 percent.
In the interview, Harper also said his finance minister's budget on January 27 would include billions of dollars in stimulus spending, ending more than a decade of back-to-back balanced budgets in Canada.
"Obviously, we're going to have to run a deficit," Harper said. "We're talking about spending billions of dollars that was not planned."
|Well Canucks Harper rolled out his "new" expanded, sycophantic cabinet- really exciting eh? As an ambassador for the New World Order Herr Harper would certainly appreciate the following article.
Canada Is Set to Start a National Rollout of Chip-Equipped Debit Cards
(October 28, 2008) Canada's financial institutions will start issuing microchip-embedded debit cards by the end of the year, the country's national electronic funds transfer network said on Tuesday. The rollout of chip cards, which follows a year-long pilot of so-called chip-and-PIN technology in the Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, area, will over the course of four years convert the nation's 35 million PIN debit cards to chips from magnetic-stripe technology, according to deadlines set by Interac, the EFT network linking Canada's financial institutions.
Caroline Hubberstey, director of public affairs for Interac, says the total investment in chip-and-PIN by member financial institutions, processors, and terminal makers will be "significant," though she says "we don't have a dollar amount yet." The payback is expected to come not just from reduced fraud internally, but also from the shield the technology can provide against fraud committed by international criminals looking for less-protected markets, Hubberstey says. "We certainly know fraud migrates to the weakest points, so we don't want to lag behind," she notes.
Fraud committed through so-called skimming-where fake cards and stolen PINs are used to illicitly withdraw funds at ATMs or POS terminals-is expected to grow worse in markets that have not converted to chip-and-PIN. The technology has already been adopted in the U.K. and much of Europe. "Canada was going to get the U.K. fraud because we're a natural destination for U.K. travelers," said Philip Andreae, a payments consultant based in Canada and a former executive with Visa Canada and Europay International, for a story to appear in the upcoming November issue of Digital Transactions magazine.
In 2007, Canadian banks reimbursed victims for $106 million in losses owing to skimming, Interac says.
With chip-and-PIN technology, consumers insert their cards into a reader at the point of sale and leave them there for the entire transaction. The PIN they enter at the terminal must match the one encoded in the chip for the transaction to be authorized. In the Kitchener-Waterloo trial, consumers and merchants adapted readily to the process, Hubberstey says. Eighty-eight percent of the trial cardholders responding to a survey said the chip cards were as easy to use as mag-stripe cards, according to trial research released on Tuesday. Some 200,000 local residents had chip cards, while merchants in the area were equipped with 2,300 compliant terminals.
The rollout will involve a much larger-scale replacement of cards and devices. Though all debit cards must be compliant by the end of 2012, the network has mandated that 65% be chip-ready fully two years earlier. The network's approximately 48 issuing member institutions (some of these represent multiple institutions) are distributing new cards on their own timetables in advance of the mandated deadlines.
Interac links 603,000 POS terminals and 55,000 ATMs. Compared to the POS devices, the ATMs have a nearer-term deadline for compliance: Dec. 31, 2012. By the end of 2015, all of Canada's point-of-sale terminals must be chip-enabled, the network says. Banks will issue chip cards with mag stripes during the transition, but only as a temporary measure to allow the market to adjust. "After 2015, you won't see a mag-stripe transaction take place in Canada," declares Hubberstey.
Well Canada it's all over except for the shouting. Yes, the most self-indulgent election call has brought forth, surprise, surprise a minority government with Harper and his lackies back in the saddle. Outside of the low showing of fellow New World Order wanna-be Celine, I mean Stéphane Dion and his Lieberals the NDP were outpaced by the Bloc. Now how on earth does a party that represents one province and a minority of the population get more seats than the NDP? Only in Canada you say. As has been mentioned in this section before, Herr Harper knows what the game plan of the elites is and he wanted back in before the real crunch comes. Just watch him set Canada on a course of economic union with everyone but the Tibetans. How about, "Oh Chinada....", or "Oh Amerimexada..."
Bon jour Canucks. The election is a mere day away and we all know the outcome, n'est pas? Yes, Harper will be back to push his New World Agenda at the cost of Canadian autonomy and "values". A duplicitous traitor he is, but cunning too. If you have read any of the other pages on this site you know the economic "downturn" is a jackboot kickstart to the New World Order through a world wide economic 'union'. The bankers, as always, are licking their chops as the remaining assests of the Sheeple fall into their gulping maws.
Spreading NAFTA's Love Across The Atlantic by Dana Gabriel, Global Research, October 10, 2008, opednews.com
Canada and the European Union (EU) are set to begin preliminary discussions on deeper economic integration a mere three days after the election. It has been reported that the proposed trade deal will far exceed NAFTA. Some see this as an opportunity to possibly update the 15 year-old accord. Stephen Harper is busy telling Canadians that only a Conservative majority government will be able to bring confidence back and stabilize the economy. That is why I find it a little strange that this has not become a pillar of the Conservatives economic platform. Harper has decided not to release the full text of the draft proposal until after the election on October 14. The reality is that such an agreement with the EU will be no different than NAFTA in the sense that it will be used to further advance corporate interests.
For the past several months, Canadian officials have been hard at work negotiating with EU representatives. They have compiled a detailed study that will be unveiled after the election. Talks could begin as early as October 17 at a summit in Montreal , with formal negotiations set to begin in 2009. Just as the case with the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) labour, citizen groups and the public at large have been excluded from any discussions. Many support this trade initiative because they wish to lessen Canada’s dependency on the American economy.
This agreement has a better chance of succeeding if Harper is re-elected Prime Minister. There still remains much secrecy surrounding trade talks with the EU, and up to this point, Harper appears to be reluctant to make this an election issue. French and current rotating EU president Nicolas Sarkozy has said that he wishes economic integration with Canada to be part of his lasting legacy. Europe sees Canada’s energy resources as a possible solution to easing their dependency on Russian oil and gas.
In a commentary that appeared in the Globe and Mail, Alan Alexandroff, co-author of the C.D. Howe Institute paper titled Still Amigos, writes, "If the EU and Canada can forge an accord that covers services, government procurement and skilled labour that could well set the table for reviving the original NAFTA." He went on to say, "If the EU and Canada join hands, the U.S. and Mexico will be eager to join the party." Some believe that such an agreement will further advance North American integration while spreading NAFTA to Europe. A Canada-EU trade deal could be used as the model for future bilateral accords and as a way to further renew U.S.-EU relation.
There are calls to further deepen the U.S.-EU partnership with a new sense of multilateralism in areas of trade, climate change, and fighting terrorism, along with others. In April of 2007, it was announced with very little fanfare that the U.S.-EU had reached a deal on a new Trans-Atlantic Economic Partnership. They agreed to set up an economic council and further boost trade and investment by harmonizing services, business takeovers, and intellectual property. They also agreed to continue working towards eliminating non-tariff barriers to trade, which could eventually lead to a U.S.-EU single market.
Economic integration was a first step in the creation of the EU, and a similar stealth approach is being used to advance a North American Union. EU Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso recently said in a speech, "We have to make room at the top table for others, because that is the only way we can consolidate and strengthen a stable, multilateral world, governed by internationally agreed rules." He also stated, "the time has come to start thinking of an Atlantic Agenda for Globalisation." With the further erosion of national sovereignty and continued economic, social, cultural and environmental integration, we are on an undeniable path towards world government.
With the collapse of the WTO talks, more bilateral trade agreements will be used in advancing the New World Order’s agenda. The global elite, pushing for world government, are using the current financial turmoil to acquire more wealth and power. Economic uncertainty could also be used to usher in a North American Union with its own currency. A Canada-EU trade deal is yet another incremental step towards global governance.
BC First Province to Implement Carbon Tax
Leave it to BC to once again jump to the strains of the Illuminati March and introduce the biggest PR scam in a long time. Yes, once the world was Gorified by the state of the environment (brought to you by the very same Illuminati Corps that suck oil, loan money, pollute where ever necessary to save costs, and ferret away alternate technologies that might change all that) the magic words "Carbon Tax" made its way through the media and into the lexicon of well-meaning but deceived environmentalists. This massive and unending cash grab that has next to nothing to do with saving the environment is a PR persons dream campaign. Only really dim-witted or uncaring people would be against saving the planet and the only way to start to do that is with a carbon tax, yah, that's right, a carbon tax. In the case of BC the irony was that as the government (ever eager to please their Masters) introduced the carbon tax ( with no cap on the amount-cute! ) they also introduced a $327 million expenditure for 'incentives' to the oil and gas industry. Yes, they must think we are so stupid that we don't see the unadulterated hipocrisy and pure BS of this whole stinking thing. Surf's up dude.
It is a slow but sure 'tippy-toe' into the Orwellian world when, for "security" reasons we accept more and more monitoring and survellance in daily life.
Canada Taxi Drivers Protest In-Cab Snoop Cameras
February 12, 2008
Taxi convoy protests in-car cameras in downtown Ottawa
Hundreds of taxis clogged the streets of Ottawa Tuesday morning as drivers demonstrated against a new bylaw requiring security cameras in their vehicles starting July 2.
"Traffic is moving very very slow, all along the route," reported CBC Radio’s Alistair Steele from the middle of the convoy around 11 a.m., an hour after the protest started at Coventry and Belfast roads.
The taxis were making their way along the Vanier Parkway, Montreal Road and Rideau Street toward Ottawa City Hall, where they were to meet with hundreds of other taxis and demand a meeting with Mayor Larry O’Brien.
Yusuf Al Mezel, president of the Canadian Auto Workers Local 1688, which represents the taxi drivers and organized the protest, said the drivers will not allow the cameras to be installed in their cars this July.
"These cameras will not be installed in our cars without our consent and without our consultation," he said, adding that drivers were not asked to weigh in on the bylaw or even the type of security camera that would be installed.
The drivers have voiced concerns about their privacy and that of their passengers as well as the price of cameras, which are $1,500 each and are being obtained by the city through a single-source contract with Toronto-based VerifEye Technologies.
Al Mezel said the drivers did their own investigation and found they could get security cameras for half that price.
Council approved the bylaw requiring the cameras in September 2005. Since then, the city has allowed drivers to collect a five cent surcharge on each fare and the difference between seven per cent and the reduced GST to cover the cost of the cameras, said city spokesman Barre Campbell.
Liberal MP Launches Motion to Stop Human Rights Commission Squelching of Free Speech- Thursday January 31, 2008
By Hilary White
OTTAWA, January 31, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A British Columbia Parliamentarian, Keith Martin, has called for the abolition of the clause in the Canadian Human Rights Act that makes it possible for special interest groups to file petty grievance complaints through the Human Rights Commissions.
Martin today presented the motion to Parliament in the face of the ongoing scandals of Human Rights Commissions and Tribunals being used to silence journalists, Christian pastors and political writers on a variety of controversial topics.
The motion states, "That, in the opinion of the House, subsection 13(1) of the Canadian Human Rights Act should be deleted from the Act." Subsection 13(1) makes it a "discriminatory practice" for individuals or groups to communicate messages that are "likely to expose a person or persons to hatred or contempt". Critics of this section of the Act have long said that the clause creates the precise equivalent of a "thought crime".
Confirmation was not available from Martin's office as to whether or not the motion is in response to the current wave of complaints against Canadian journalists, politicians and religious leaders based on subsection 13(1). But a spokesman from Martin's office told LifeSiteNews.com that the publicity surrounding the complaints against Mark Steyn and Ezra Levant by Islamic extremist imams has raised the profile of the issue throughout the country and around the world.
To date, no comment on the issue has come from Conservative members of government, including Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
Manley the puppet dances to his Master's voice. (Jan.24,2008)
Was anyone really surpised by John Manley's report on Afghanistan for the Harper government? Unfortunately our wanna-be Illuminati known as federal poly-ticians, are just following the script.
Remember that Afghanistan is about the three "O's": Oil, Opium and Occupation.
B.C. Premier Campbell addresses Conference Board of Canada on changing climate. (Jan.24,2008)
In his address to the Conference Board of (the United Trading Regions of ) Canada he mentions the need for establishing a new strategy (policy) on water, forestry and the north (see last paragraph). Please flag this statement as it is (as mentioned in the Council of Canadians material), a major part of the SPP hand-over to NAU. Yes, we may be shipping water (like Oil is now) to the US under trade agreements when we ourselves will need it. Amazing how 'our' poly-ticians will sell us and the country out for their little pat on the head, and retirement nest-egg.
BC 'Enhanced' Drivers Licence Announced. (Jan.21,2008)
Well leave it to the left coast to bring forward the New World Agenda by way of an innocuous announcement by Stockwell Day that a "volunteer" program will be introduced where 500 lucky BC'ers will be the first on the block to get an 'Enhanced' BC Drivers Licence that will include an RFID chip with all their personal information needed for citizenship verification coded in. This, it was stated, was Phase One of a Three Phase program and would be used to test the effectiveness of the system and presumably, be great PR for encouraging other happy citizens to participate. The initial benefit touted was increased speed in getting though the customs process. The fact is that this is definately going to lead to something being faster and that is the mandatory carrying of said Licence in the near future and the unfoldment of the Illuminati agenda. Are we really so dumbed down with trivial pursuits and just plain staying alive not to see through this step into the microchipped, monitored populace. Hello Big Brother, what's for dinner? (see below)
British Columbia will issue the country's first enhanced driver's licences, which could serve as an alternative to passports that will be required next year for border crossings to the United States.
The announcement, made Monday in Vancouver by Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day and B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell, is a response to new security measures under the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative that require valid passports for all Canada-U.S. land and water border crossings beginning in June 2009.
The initiative was passed by the U.S. Congress in 2004 in a bid to plug security holes after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Canadian officials have been pressing U.S. counterparts for an alternative to passports, saying they are expensive and curtail trade and tourism.
"This new licence will encourage closer social ties with our U.S. neighbours and support economic growth on both sides of the border," Campbell said in a news release.
Last November, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff confirmed that enhanced driver's licences will be accepted as alternatives to passports at the Canada-U.S. border.
The B.C. government is inviting volunteers to participate in the pilot program, which will issue only 500 enhanced driver's licences that will contain proof of citizenship. Based on their effectiveness, the enhanced driver's licences program could apply to all Canadian citizens in B.C. in the future, the ministers said in the release.
Ontario introduced plans for similar driver's licences in December. But Transportation Minister Jim Bradley said he still has to get final agreement from U.S. and Canadian government officials before they can be issued.
Quebec has said it will roll out enhanced driver's licences in a year's time.
Anne of the Scan
No one would argue that there are some pretty 'twisted' people on the Net, and unfortunately some of those take advantage of children. The new website for children dedicated to Anne of Green Gables has jumped the cue of paranoia and gone straight to the hard-core. Under the guise of "protection", children wishing to use the site will be required to not only do the typical log-in, password routine but provide a scanned fingerprint as well. Sounds logical, doesn't it- "it's for their safety". Let's stop for a minute and look at this. The children will now be part of a social-database that will be used not only to target marketing at them (have a look at the companies behind this endeavour) which has been admitted, but it will succeed in two other regards; a conditioning of young people to accept biometric coding/reading as an everyday part of life and, it will provide an on-going database of "tagged" little beings.
Do you remember when providing fingerprints was only for criminals? Anyone familiar with the darker aspects of Facebook (which have been well documented), will see a pattern here. Paradoxically we have more to fear from the sick, predatory, psychopaths who run this world and would like nothing more than a subservient, totally controlled population of serfs than the random "freak" on the net.
Many responsible Canadians who take the environment and its condition seriously cannot see through the "ruse" of Global Warming as preached by the Illuminati. People have been 'Gorefied' by the state of the environment and pronouncements of doom that the "experts" hand out daily. There is no question we've messed the planet up big time, but global warming is primariy due to the fact that the Sun's intensity has increased and the mean temperature of the other planets in our solar system is also increasing. Remember, the objective was to get a Carbon Tax. This is not about saving the environment as psychopaths couldn't careless about it, or us, it's about money. Think of this when you read the following.
Whats wrong with this picture?
Nothing, right? At the risk of tilting at windmills it is important to point out to peaceful Canadians that the gradual incorporation of military images, and a military presence at events other than Veterans' Day ceremonies, typical parade functions, and selected diplomatic events is a planned and pre-determined technique. The function of which is to imprint into the consciousness of Canadians, particularly the youth, the idea that having the military not only involved in special events but everyday affairs is a 'natural' thing.
There is no denying the 'Power and Glory' persona that is imparted to the youth by images such as that shown. This ladies and gentlemen is conditioning, a subtle and disturbing type of manipulation that is characteristic of what is happening in the US, UK and most other places in the world. The so called "Communist" world has lived with this for almost a century now.
Canada may be the most Politically Correct country in the the world. Often the very suggestion that PC thought is rampant in education, politics and the media is dismissed as unworthy of discussion and periodically raises the spectre of "racism" should this even be questioned. The common courtesies that most human beings interact with do not require legislation and legal threats which treats them like rude children.
Even more problematic are the reasons that PC thinking and its acceptance has been encouraged. Limiting the power of speech by gutting it of words and reducing it into simple homilies and platitudes makes the society less critical in its thinking and its ability to express itself. This may seem like a ridiculous assertion but the start of mind-control and social-conditioning is to create acceptable and non questionable models that the populace accepts as their own.
The reason for this mention here is that the NDP party of BC has gone way out into the PC zone recently by indicating that they intended to make some ridings for women and visible minority only candidates. This means that (as in government hiring and many educational institutions) the deck is stacked against anyone that does not fit the profile. While many may support such a forward thinking step at inclusion, it is a perfect example of the double think of PC justification. Two wrongs have never made a right and worse, democratic process (as thin and illusory as it actually is in our world) should not be limited by yet another form of racism and sexism. Somehow this point doesn't seem to register on the PC crowd.
More PC : Merry, happy, cheery, don't offend anyone (or everyone equally) Holiday greetings.
The War in Afganistan in which Canada is actively participating is yet another example of New World Order interests using the rhetoric of national pride, security and the advancement of "democracy" to forward their agenda. In the case of Afganistan it is not only securing the territory for oil interests, but for opium production and eventual sale into the world market and the strategic location of the territory relative to Russia and China. It seems just about every week Canadian's hear of yet another soldier or participant killed with the attendant usual responses by military and political authorities. This week a few contractors where unveiled who supply the troops (exclusive of Tim Horton's that is). Chief amongst them is a Quebec based firm that you will find listed in the Rogue's Gallery section. Below is the small number (of the many) that was made public.
To add insult to injury the public broadcaster CBC, ever eager to please the hand that feeds it, produces a radio drama called 'Afganada' a thinly veiled propaganda vehicle for the Canadian military and it's New World (dis)Order role.
Video of Tasered Man who died at Vancouver Airport released.
No one would dispute that policing can be a challenging and dangerous occupation, but citizens, particularly complacent Canadians should be extremely vigilant about police and security agency behaviour. It is a slippery slope into the kind of abuses, brutality and police state mentality that can develop if unchecked. There is no shortage of this type of abusive behaviour in second and third-world countries but we are starting to see more and more of this in the US, England and Canada. It is extremely important to remember that the Illuminati want a world wide police state and like the frog sitting in a pot of warm water on a stove, before you know it we are stewed unless we let the police and polyticians know that we will not accept this. Surely there are some decent cops that will stand up for their motto; To Serve and Protect. That is, to serve and protect the public not the elites and polyticians who regularly break laws, ethical, moral and legal to gain their ends.
The most shocking example of this abuse recently on home soil was the rough-housing and subsequent Tasering of the Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver Airport. Anyone who watches the video will see a distraught man who has been in a security detention area for ten hours after an International flight and is unable to communicate with anyone. Save for a Saint or Yogi, it's difficult to imagine anyone not being extremely agitated and frustrated by such bureacratic insensitivity. As he becomes more active in expressing his frustration the four cops role in like something out of a Hollywood crime film and quickly begin to manhandle and then Taser Mr. Dziekanski. The rest is now part of history. These cops should be suspended if not fired and a thorough look at training and protocol should be undertaken by a public (ie. not Police supervised) enquiry.
Mr. Dziekanski was the 18th person to die since July 2003 after being hit by a Taser in Canada, a country where the weapons may be owned only by police forces. For Canadians it is extremely important to be aware that Mr Harper is (under the guise of better cooperation) aligning Canada more and more with the US (see SPP link page) and it's progessive move towards a police/totalitarian state.
-Update to Tasered Man story-
In true smarmy politician style the BC Justice Minister who, for a week after Robert Dzienkanski was killed maintained that no enquiry was required, did a 180 after much public out-cry and announced that an enquiry was the only humane thing to do after such a terrible incident. Then to add more grease to the smarm the Premier himself, a paragon of virtue, spun the whole event into PR exercise designed to show his genuine concern for the injustice done.
| How to introduce the micro-chipped, data-based and tracked populace; through the children-it's for their own safety. Wake Up Canada!
Child ID clinic at Wal-Mart on Monday
When a child goes missing, seconds count, says Brockville police community safety officer Sergeant Doug Locke.
In those frantic early moments, Locke said it's critical that parents can provide police investigators with as much information about a child as possible.
That's why he's encouraging parents to attend a child identification clinic on Monday from 5-9 p.m. at Wal-Mart.
The laminated ID cards include a photograph of the child that will be taken that night, as well as a thumb-print and other details such as date of birth, eye and hair colour.
"A lot of parents have shown an interest and have been asking when we're going to do another (clinic)," said Locke, noting it's unlikely another clinic will be held for six months."If you need one, get it now."
He will be at the event with the four members of the city force's Volunteers in Police Programming (VIPP) team from St. Lawrence College.
The cards cost $2 apiece, which allows Brockville police to recover expenses, said Locke.
"It's not a fundraiser," he stressed.
Cards are suitable for kids from newborn through to their early teens and are also recognized as valid ID when crossing the border, noted Locke.
"Once they reach 16 they have a driver's licence," he said.
Currently one of the worst poly-ticians to infect Canada, a liar, thief and egomaniac of large proportions and a New World Order lackie to boot, is back in the public eye over an alleged payoff he received while Prime Minister. Now with the Gall of a Blarny Boy he's demanding a public enquiry, funded by the Canadian public who will be fleeced yet again by this charlatan, to clear his good name once and for all. If he's calling for a public enquiry then the fix is already in and he knows not to worry. Some handshakes work better than others.
The last great public enquiry into the Air India "disaster" spent millions of dollars and ended up white-washing the whole affair. A comedy of errors and missing links and information (Can you say 911). It's fair to say that something stunk about this whole enquiry and one has to wonder whether in fact it was meant to happen, a political or industrial assasination perhaps?
