Bill C-51 Just passed. Where do we go from here?

Posted by Soledad Vega on Tuesday, June 9, 2015 – 12:38

This just in from Ottawa: The Senate just passed Bill C-51 today by 44-28, despite massive opposition from hundreds of thousands of everyday Canadians and the country’s top privacy experts. Reckless Bill C-51 will now become Canadian law.

Here’s who sided with Canadians: Most of the independent Senators from the Liberal Party and independent Progressive Conservative Elaine McCoy.  Thanks to each and every one of them for doing the right thing and trying to prevent this dangerous Bill from becoming law. Sadly, Conservative Senators were able to use their majority to ignore Canadians and force this bill through.

In light of the damning evidence of the surveillance abuses Bill C-51 allows, the Parliament had an opportunity to protect the Charter of Rights and listen to what Canadians were demanding.

It’s no secret that this is bad news. When the world’s largest security-oriented intergovernmental organization says Bill C-51 violates the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, you know this bill is a real threat.

As Debra Davidson from our social community puts it, “The Senate has failed miserably at stopping bills such as Bill C-51 over the past decade or two, due to voting along party lines, rather than upholding their sworn duty to protect the Constitution and Charter of Rights and Freedoms of their citizens.”

But at OpenMedia we have been fighting bad legislation that would hamper our online rights and freedoms online for years now. This vote means we need to keep fighting all the way through to the October election. We will make sure every Canadian voter knows where their representatives stood when it mattered most.

We’re going to need every single one of you as we turn to our larger mission: Kill Bill C-51.

Above all, Bill C-51 underlines just how stark Canada’s privacy deficit has become. And we need a comprehensive approach to fix it. That’s why, over the last weeks we launched our very own Privacy Plan, a positive pro-privacy action plan, packed with ideas from 125,000 Canadians, aimed at addressing Canada’s privacy deficit. We had the chance to meet with MP Justin Trudeau and hand him this crowdsourced report with the common sense steps to strengthen privacy safeguards for all of us.

action_privacy_letter1

The next stage of this fight will be absolutely crucial: Over 240,000 Canadians have now signed the petition against the bill at StopC51.ca and tens of thousands more have inundated MPs with letters, phone calls, emails and tweets to express their opposition. This, without a doubt, has become one of the largest campaigns in Canadian history.

Kill Bill C-51secret police

In this context, and with a federal election around the corner, Canadian MPs and candidates know there’ll be a real political price to pay for voting through this reckless, dangerous, and ineffective legislation.

We’ve been hearing more and more voices like the one from our community member Kyle Young saying “If you vote for Bill C-51, your party, and you will never receive another vote from myself, or family ever again in our lives.”

This is why we are not giving up. Now we’ve got to take the next step and get all parties to repeal Bill C-51.

So far the NDP and the Green Party have pledged to repeal the unpopular legislation, and the Liberals went from supporting it wholeheartedly to being more cautious and promising amendments (or even voting against it in the case of the independent Liberal Senators). It is time to put pressure on all the major political parties to commit to kill bill C-51, and demand accountability for those who haven’t committed to do so.

Our long-term goal is clear — the complete repeal of Bill C-51, a recognition of the privacy rights of the Canadian people, and strong accountability and oversight for surveillance practices.

It’s never been more important to add your voice to our growing campaign. You can pitch in by signing our petition at KillC51.ca, by using our quick tool to get a letter published in your local newspaper, or by chipping in to power this fight over the long run at https://OpenMedia.org/privacy/donate

We’ll continue fighting, Canada! Together we can #KillC51.Action Image_KillC-51crop

CANADIAN OUTLAWS: Truth, Christians and Charter of Rights fall prey to Zionist misfeasance 

By Arthur Topham

March 3, 2013

The recent, decision handed down on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by six of Canada’s Supreme Court justices, in the Saskatchewan (Human Rights Commission) v Whatcott case, was indeed a ‘supreme’ blow to Christians, to freedom of religion and to every individual’s right to freedom of speech in Canada. At the same time, it also was a remarkably clandestine victory for the foreign Zionist-Jew lobby groups such as B’nai Brith Canada, the Canadian Jewish Congress, and the Canadian Council for Israel and Jewish Advocacy (CIJA); all of whom reflect, represent and condone, in unabashed fashion, the principles and policies of the Zionist state of Israel, over and above the traditional rule of law that has been the hallmark of Canadian jurisprudence from its earliest beginnings.

On top of this victorious legal coup that the vast majority of Canadians remain either ignorant of or in denial of, there are the added collaborating players in this long-range agenda to subvert and mould Canada’s judiciary into a type more in keeping with that of the U.S.A’s; one which, in recent years, has become permeated by their Jewish lobby groups to such an extent that they’ve effectively emasculated the US legal system by introducing their own brand of Jewish Noahide laws into American jurisprudence. These Noahide laws are, in fact, ones that stem from the ancient writings of the Jewish Talmud; a horrendously hoary and convoluted compilation of endless sophistry and intellectual meanderings that attempt to cover the full gamut of possible mental masterbation on any conceivable topic capable of debate, all of which boggles the mind and taxes the heart and soul of anyone who is able to locate and delve into the bottomless pit of arcane, abstruse, macabre deliberations found therein.

Canadian Zionist distress

It is my contention, based upon all recent research and extrapolation, that this same clandestine, Fifth Column Zionist-instigated seditious process is, and has been, occurring here in Canada since the inception of our nation’s “hate speech laws” that, coincidentally, began to gain ascendency in Canada’s house of justice back in the late 1960’s when the major Jewish lobby groups first began to amalgamate and initiate this calculated, step by step, surreptitious program of incremental changes to Canada’s legal system; one that would eventually see the switch over from former Christian democratic principles of freedom of speech to those of the Talmudic Jewish Noahide laws under which Jewry has operated over the past two millennia.  It is also my added contention that these subtle changes have been, and are being, spearheaded by those very justices of the Supreme Court of Canada who hold duel citizenship with the state of Israel and whose ultimate allegiance, I strongly allege, is first and foremost to that foreign nation.

Compounding and exacerbating this traitorous intent to corrupt and debase Canada’s legal system via “hate crime legislation” is the growing realization by many Canadians that our so-called “independent” media is, in fact, totally controlled, editorially and otherwise, by this same self-serving Zionist Jew consortium and that these media monopolists, along with their line of sycophantic, sayanim journalists and talking heads, are the major propaganda force behind this plot to subvert the Canadian justice system.

Most Canadians who have not been asleep at the wheel politically are now fully cognizant of the fact that the Harper Conservative government is the key to the success of these Zionist “hate crime” operatives and their eventual triumph in binding the mouths and minds of Canadians so that any and all criticism of their planned take-over of the country will not be openly discussed, either in the print media, television or on the Internet. Their arsenal of epithets stands ready 24/7 to support any smear & fear campaign necessary to belittle and slander and denigrate those who show any indication of not bowing down in obeisance to their treasonous scheme to dismantle and re-create our former legal system so as to have it fit harmoniously with all the other nations that have also been infiltrated by these same self-chosen zealots.

2838833829_43c7006825

The whole of the homosexual agenda is but one of the ruses that these lobbyists use in order to divide, confuse and conquer their opponents and justify, via their human rights commissions, tribunals and their Supreme Court double-agents, the introduction of more and more repressive anti-democratic “hate speech” laws. These tactics, for those who have studied the Zionist’s modus operandi to any degree, are par for the course. The crucial thing for them is to use others rather than come straight out and say we’re bringing in all these repressive, Orwellian laws because we don’t want Canadians discussing and debating our ideology, our motives or our agenda; one that includes enslaving and punishing anyone who steps out of line and beyond that the total destruction of the Christian religion as we now know it.

There is, on top of all these seemingly inexplicable occurrences, a vital question that needs to asked and addressed with respect to the inordinate number of Zionist, duel-citizenship Jewish justices who have somehow wended their way upwards to the apex of Canada’s judicial system and are now literally in positions of supreme power and control with respect to influencing both our Constitution and our Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Given that Canada is noted world wide for being a proactive, multicultural nation; one that welcomes immigrants from around the world to its shores and touts itself as being an open, free and culturally diverse society, the blatant imbalance that we are witnessing today in the ethnic composition of our Supreme Court justices is beyond question a problem in dire need of explanation.

Were we, as a nation, to give equal opportunity and consideration to the various visible minorities that make up our country’s population then this ought to be reflected in the composition of those who sit in judgement at the top of our federal judicial system.

canada_us_israel_distress_flag

Knowing that our First Nations population is the largest minority group in Canada it behooves all Canadians to ask the obvious: why do we not have a First Nations justice sitting in on our supreme court? Given that this nation was formed, literally, from the soil of the original people’s land and also given that the First Nations people constitute the largest group in the Canadian population matrix does it not make sense that when it comes to representing their interests that someone from their ranks ought to be a member of this august group of supreme court justices?

Next in line is our Chinese-Canadian population topping the list as the largest visible minority in Canada and again the obvious question is: why do we not have a Chinese-Canadian justice sitting in the SCC?

Next in line we have a very large South Asian population followed by an equally large black population. Where are the South Asian and the Black supreme court justices?

Finally, getting to the crux of this perplexing situation, as we go down the scale of relative population demographics  we come to the ethnic Jewish population in Canada which, according to the Jewish Virtual Library, in 2010 numbered 375,000 in population, ranking somewhere in the neighbourhood of 25th in terms of group size and comprising, out of a total population of 33,890,000 Canadians, 1.1% of Canada’s total population. Yet, for their relatively small numbers in terms of percentages they now hold 4 out of 9 positions on Canada’s Supreme Court. That works out to 44.4% of Canada’s supreme court justices somehow stemming from 1.1 % of the country’s total population. If common sense cannot tell people that there is a glaring discrepancy here then something surely is wrong in the way that Canadians view the make-up of their nation’s highest court.  No amount of intellectual verbiage can explain why this is so without getting into the fundamental question of what the real reasons are for this most obvious of imbalances wherein we have a preponderance of duel-citizen Jewish justices sitting and deliberating the vital questions currently being discussed in this brief essay.

devil-penis-statue-vancouver1-800x600

Of course the immediate reaction from the Zionist lobbies is to reach up their proverbial sleeve and pull out their “anti-Semitic” and “hate speech” cards and flash them across the nation via their controlled media in typical fashion whenever their power base is questioned or threatened. Then will follow their sophistry and rhetoric emanating from the academics and talking heads arguing that this blatant discrepancy is simply due to the fact that Jewish lawyers are the most intelligent, experienced and therefore qualified of all of Canada’s lawyers and, like the cream atop the cow’s milk, they naturally rise up to those positions of eminence and power.

As the kids would say, “Yah, sure.”

To conclude, it cannot be stressed or repeated enough that we either have free speech or we have controlled speech where Big Brother takes control of our conscience and our mind and leaves us as automatons and slaves to do their bidding and those who now sit in judgement over our collective rights , due to their recent actions in the Whatcott case, must be treated with the utmost suspicion and their motives fully analyzed.

The time to act on these concerns is yesterday. Tomorrow may be too late.

The SCC Puppets

I present below the figures of the three Ashkenazi Zionists who have, along with their controllers in Tel Aviv and elsewhere, and the other three Shabbez Goi justices, perpetrated this seditious act of attempting to twist the truth and our human right to freedom of speech into some form of kosher, Zionist fritter all the better to fragment and confuse the people of Canada so as to lure our nation further astray into the nightmare that awaits the world should Zionism ever gain full control over independent nation states.

It must also be adamantly born in mind as well that the fact that I am presenting and focusing on these three individuals is absolutely not to be misconstrued as having excused the other three protagonists in this deceptive legal drama. The primary purpose here is accent the Jewish lobby in Canad and its unsavory effect upon Canada’s legal system. It goes without saying that the other three justices have, for whatever reasons, also consented to this agenda and ought to be removed from their positions along with the three Zionist duel-citizen justices in question here.

McLachlin photo McLachlincopy_zps96a077d6.png

With respect to Canada’s current Madam Chief Justice McLachlin it is also relevant and fitting that the following quote by Jason Moscovitz of the CBC be mentioned here as it is most relevant to an understanding of the mindset of these six judicial side-kicks when it comes to our right to freedom of speech.  Jason Moscovitz states: “Of all the attributes she brings to the high court, there is one that sticks out. Many legal experts say she does not consider the Charter of Rights to be necessarily sacred.” [Jason Moscovitz CBC Date: 991103 Time: 22:00:00 ET – 22:26:00 ET]

AbellaFlag photo abellaFlag_zpsbf55ffb4.png

While still in her twenties SCC Abella was appointed a member of the Human Rights Commission of Ontario. Her husband, Irving Abella, is the J. Richard Shiff Professor of Canadian Jewish Studies at York University in Toronto and a past president of the Canadian Jewish Congress, one of the leading “hate speech law” lobby groups in Canada.

SCC Justice Abella is on the International Board of the Hebrew University, a member of the United States Holocaust Museum’s Committee on Conscience (again, pushing the 6 million lies of the Zionists that have become since WWII one of the principal pillars supporting all of their criminal actions since that time).

The president (Canadian Section) of the International Commission of Jurists, cited her as one whose “entire life has revolved around the cause of human rights… She has shaped Canadian policy in equality rights, and…has also had a profound impact on human rights law and policy outside Canada.” The precise manner in HOW SCC has “shaped Canadian policy in equality rights” is now fairly apparent given her complicity in this recent and deplorable attack upon Canada’s unquestionable right to freedom of speech.

SCC Justice Abella also served as a commissioner on the Ontario Human Rights Commission. Again, those who have been complicit in the actions of the human “rights” commissions here in Canada have revealed their motives clearly enough over the past decade and longer and have lost credibility in the eyes of the rest of the 98% of Canada who do not want to have their rights tampered with to satisfy the spurious and fraudulent false front arguments of special minority groups.

True to his name there’s definitely something “fishy” about this lastest SCC decision.

RothsteinFlag photo RothsteinFlag_zps2256d32f.png

SCC Justice Rothstein has served as an adjudicator under the Manitoba Human Rights Act from 1978 to 1983 and as a member of the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal from 1986 to 1992. He has also held many other offices or appointments connected to the Manitoba Human Rights Act and the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal.

So what have people like Marshall Rothstein learned from all of their involvement in harassing and vilifying and criminalizing Canadians for having exercised their God-given right to freedom of expression and speech? By all appearances he’s learned that the manipulation of the law,when it is being supported by a Fifth Column media and a host of complicit, compromised politicians under the sway of the Zionist lobby, is relatively easy to accomplish and virtually a fait accompli.

Crypto Jew Stephen Harper 

This is in NO way ANTI SEMITIC in any form or intention.WE ARE NOT RACIST IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM. We Believe in Equality for all mankind even these Khazar Criminals if they truly ask for forgiveness and truly repent of there sins   We believe the real Jews to be the real Historic Victims in all this and it goes as far back as ancient Egypt .

Now as the People that we are talking about are FALSE JEWS  and not Jewish at all but of the SYNAGOGUE of SATAN as it states in the Book of Revelation chapter  2.9  I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.. and chapter   3.9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

 This whole Khazar Ashkenazi Zionist Cabal could also possibly answer why all of a sudden the USA-NATO/Israel is trying to provoke war in the Ukraine to supposedly free it from Russian control they say, but this is obviously a lie.  The Ukraine just happens to be the real ancient Homeland of these Khazar False Jew Criminals and they are backing up there asses just in case there discovered to be the phony liar they are and get kicked out of Palestine if first there not all convicted and executed by there own guillotines they had planed to uses on all of the rest of the 99% of  us…We believe its all just in case so that these insane psychopathic Khazar criminals think they will have a home place to go back to just in case there Evil New World Order scheme fails and its starting to look like they might fail, but that is when they are the most dangerous and usually pull off some type of evil terrorist false flag plot and just like there False Jew status its all by Satanic plan of deception as Satan has always taught mankind that its his way, and its not GODS way

666777666

The Evil incarnate in these people comes directly from the Pharisees and Scribes of ancient Israel writing the Babylonian Talmud while in exile in Babylon and this is where all the Blood Sacrifice the Sexual Perversions and the Racist doctrine came from. They also took the TORAH and changed  perverted and corrupted all the verses and laws given to Moses to pass on to Humans in the Torah The Talmud is not written or has any prophetic words of GOD in it.  It is completely written by man and they must have got some insight given to them by none other than Satan the great deceiver himself because its so Evil its DIVINELY EVIL in nature

Wake up Canadian people this evil has infected Canada through Crypto Jew Stephen Harper’s Criminal Government and it is now totally rampant in Canada

6 deceptive stories Stephen Harper will tell you during the 2015 election

6 deceptive stories Stephen Harper will tell you during the 2015 election

With a federal election less than nine months away, Stephen Harper is already polishing his stump speech.

The prime minister just offered an early indication of the themes — and track record — he will trumpet on the campaign trail.

But from banks to budget watchdogs, second-guessing the government has become a popular hobby these days. 

gaoifaabn

On Tuesday, the parliamentary budget officer estimated the government could face an $8.2 billion revenue shortfall this year, and run a deficit even after they use up their contingency fund.

We offer a fact check of the campaign cards Harper — and his government — are likely to repeatedly play in the months ahead:

1. Stephen Harper is creating “full-time, high-paying” jobs

At his first campaign-style event of 2015, here’s what Harper had to say about his jobs record:

“We have had steady economic growth in Canada for over five years, and employment has risen considerably …

Since the worst of the recession, the Canadian economy has created nearly 1.2 million jobs – overwhelmingly full-time, high-paying, private-sector jobs.”

Let’s take this one apart point-by-point:

(a) Since Harper came to power in 2006, workers in two of Canada’s biggest provinces – Ontario and British Columbia – have seen their wages go down. In the rest of the country, wages have largely been driven by the price of oil, a boom that has since gone bust.

(b) Last year, Canada only created 32,000 permanent jobs. Meanwhile, temporary jobs skyrocketed to 110,000:

(c) Employment has not “risen considerably” over the last five years. The percentage of Canadians who have a job is as low as it was at the worst point of the recession:

2. Stephen Harper is investing “big time” in infrastructure

The prime minister is talking big on infrastructure:

“We’re also investing, big time – the biggest federal investments ever – in infrastructure.

We’ve launched a massive program – over 75 billion dollars – in contributions to all manner of provincial, territorial, community, and, of course, our own federal infrastructure projects.”

Actually, that money is spread out over 10 years — so $75 billion becomes more like $7.5 billion per year.

Provinces have also said it isn’t enough, and called additional funding “overdue” at a finance ministers’ meeting in December.

3. Stephen Harper has a child care plan

Harper would also like you to believe he has a child care plan:

“Effective this spring, we are increasing and expanding the Universal Child Care Benefit. Families will receive an additional 60 dollars per child under six, for a monthly total per child of 160 dollars …

Friends, our opponents have been clear. They would take away the Universal Child Care Benefit …

And, of course, they would, because they need the higher taxes to pay for their gigantic spending promises. And what they take from your families they will give to a child-care bureaucracy.”

MG_3457-1024x819 (1)

Here’s a few things to know about that:

  • In many places across Canada, child care costs can now range in the area of between $800 – $1,200 per month
  • The expanded UCCB of $160/month is still a drop in the bucket of what most parents pay in child care costs. With median child care costs in Toronto are $15,888 per year, the UCCB still leaves parents paying $13,968 – that’s only 12% of parents’ overall costs.
  • The “child care bureaucracy” (a line borrowed from American Tea Partiers in their fight against Obamacare) Harper worries about (meaning a national day care program) would actually be less expensive than the UCCB, boost the economy and create jobs. 
  • As for Harper’s “opponents” plan to “take away the Universal Child Care Benefit”: the NDP’s Mulcair has said categorically he will not cancel the UCCB (instead allowing parents to collect the UCCB in addition to $15/day child care). The Liberals, meanwhile, have not offered a position one way or the other on the UCCB.

4. Stephen Harper has a tax cut for families – just probably not your family…

And Harper wants you to believe your family is getting a $2,000 tax cut:

“And we are, at the same time, honoring our promise to deliver the Family Tax Cut by introducing income-splitting for families with children.

That’s a benefit of up to another two thousand dollars annually!”

What he doesn’t tell you is those in line to get the $2,000 are the highest income earners with a stay-at-home spouse. Low and middle-income families with two working parents will see little to nothing:

A new Tuesday report from the CCPA shows that families earning more than $233,000 will benefit the most from the income-splitting plan.

5. Stephen Harper’s tough-on-crime policy spree

And don’t forget the part where Harper claims he ended crime!

“Friends, our Government is also proud of all we have done to keep Canadians and our streets and communities safe.

We have been cracking down on violent crime …

Canadians expect us to protect them from the worst kind of criminal, those people who truly deserve to be called a menace to society.”

Post media’s Stephen Maher recently argued the declining crime rate can largely be attributed to demographics — the aging baby-boom echo has meant a shrinking population of men ages of 15 and 24.

But the Tories tough-on-crime policies have led to higher incarceration rates — even as crime is falling, Maher argues: “It’s likely that his policies — more incarceration — have made us less safe, since prison often makes criminals worse, not better.” 

Oh, and also on the crime front, Harper trumpeted an anti-prostitution law that has been roundly criticized by legal experts, criminologists and sex workers’ advocacy groups:

“To protect vulnerable women, our anti-prostitution law targets pimps and johns.”  

obama-to-canada-pic2

6. Stephen Harper’s leadership

In his Sunday speech, Harper set his own parameters for good leadership:

“As I’ve said before, the measure of good government – the true test of leadership – lies not in achieving success in times of stability and peace, but doing so during times of risk and danger.”

Of course, risk and danger are exactly what the Canadian economy faces thanks to the collapse of oil prices. And critics say the Conservatives overreliance on a boom-and-bust resource economy is one of the key factors that has placed Canada in such financial uncertainty.

Hence the delayed budget, lowered interest rate and gloomy Tuesday outlook from the parliamentary budget officer. None of those stories fit with Harper’s narrative of “prudent choices” that “have secured economic opportunities now, and for future generations.” 

So, about that “measure of good government”…

Harper is now a PM fleeing his own past

By Michael Harris | May 14, 2015 8:59 pm THE CANADIAN PRESS/Sean Kilpatrick

THE CANADIAN PRESS/Sean Kilpatrick

More from Michael Harris available here.

My congratulations to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservative party; they’ve found an even better form of voter suppression than robocalls. They have refused to participate in the TV debates put on for every general election by Canada’s network television consortium since 1968 — back when voter turnout was north of 75 per cent.

For the life of me, I don’t know why the PM blessed Maclean’s with the task of conducting the debate, when party spokesperson Kory Teneycke and the elite journalists of 24/7 were standing at the ready, fully funded by the taxpayers, to get the job done.

I guess Steve didn’t want the 10 million viewers that CTV, Global and the CBC have to offer. After all, a mass audience would only give his opponents a bigger opening to track for the entire nation the death spiral of democracy and the rule of law in Canada — to say nothing of the parody of Conservative ethical values the Harper regime now represents.

Maybe that’s why Harper wanted a change of moderators. Steve Paikin earned a reputation as a fair and impartial moderator in the 2008 and 2011 debates. Maybe that was a problem. Or maybe it was the fact that his son, Zach, tried to run for the Liberals.

The real reason for Harper’s sudden attack of cold feet is probably the Alberta election — which offered an object lesson in how a strong debate performance can change everything. Jim Prentice didn’t have enough spinners and fear-merchants to scupper the radiant sincerity of Rachel Notley.

69738_160991607279402_100001056916300_314085_1819797_n

There are a lot of things Steve might not want to be confronted with in a well-watched, well-researched television debate. Despite balanced budgets, low unemployment and a booming commodity export market under the Liberals, corruption and accountability dominated the 2006 election. The defining moment of the 2006 debate came when Stephen Harper said: “Will you tell us Mr. Martin, how many criminal investigations are going on in your government?”

Martin was defeated by the Ad Sponsorship scandal, an elaborate kickback scheme that saw public money directed back to the Liberal party. Martin wore it even though he wasn’t involved. To his credit, and for all the right reasons, he assembled his own firing squad in the form of the Gomery Commission.

For all the wrong reasons, Steve never called an inquiry into the robocalls scandal. Trust me — you will never see a boomerang leave Steve’s hands if he can help it.

At the time Steve asked Martin that question about criminal investigations in 2006, the correct answer would have been “two”. If someone were to ask Steve the same question during the 2015 debate, he wouldn’t have enough fingers on both hands to compute the response. By my count, the Harper team has been the subject of at least 15 investigations. The stable which he was supposed to muck out has become a pigsty on his watch.

The Conservatives cheated in the 2006 election. Criminal charges of improper election spending were dropped in March 2012 as part of a plea deal. The CPC pleaded guilty to exceeding election spending limits and submitting fraudulent election records. They chequebooked their way out of the slime — paying a $52,000 fine and then repaying a further $230,198.

The PM’s former parliamentary secretary, Dean Del Mastro, has been convicted on three counts of election fraud arising out of the 2008 election. He is now facing the possibility of jail time. His cousin, David Del Mastro, is also facing charges related to the 2008 election.

546_9391_web_enlarged

What about the conviction of Guelph Conservative party worker Michael Sona? Although the robocall case has faded from view, it remains an unsolved crime — because although the existence of a conspiracy was acknowledged by two judges, the conspirators themselves remain unknown. Now that Elections Canada has been castrated by the ‘Fair Elections Act’, their identities probably will never be known.

Peter Penashue, former minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, had to step down after it was alleged that corporations had made illegal contributions to his 2011 campaign. He paid back $47,000 to Elections Canada.

open quote 761b1bThe Harper team had to put the debate cobra back in the basket in order to avoid to limit the damage from these and other embarrassments. And it’s not like the hits haven’t kept hitting.

When Penashue resigned, Stephen Harper stood in the House and described him as “the best Member of Parliament Labrador ever had”. Which was astounding. Has a Canadian prime minister ever made a clearer statement condoning cheating?

Although Penashue set up the website for his byelection campaign before he even announced his resignation, he lost to the Liberals — the PM’s bankrupt endorsement notwithstanding. Earlier this month, Penashue’s official agent in the 2011 campaign, Reg Bowers, was charged with three counts under the Canada Elections Act.

And then there’s the little matter of Harper’s Senate appointments. Senator Mike Duffy has been charged with 31 offences related to Senate spending. If convicted he faces financial ruin, probably jail time. The prime minister is on record as saying he knew nothing about the secret $90,000 payment from his chief of staff to Duffy.

Is there anyone beyond his immediate family (and possibly Paul Calandra) who still believes that?

HCSH Traitor

What if someone asked a question during a televised debate about the PMO riding herd on an independent audit committee, viewing and altering a report protected by parliamentary privilege before it was published? What if someone asked about that February 22, 2013 meeting with Nigel Wright, where the PM allegedly agreed to make Duffy pay back the money, even though Wright felt that under the rules the senator might not owe it? Is there anyone left alive over voting age in this country who hasn’t heard about Nigel Wright’s infamous “good to go from the PM” email?

And there’s still Senator Pamela Wallin, who has not been charged but who remains under RCMP investigation for expense fraud. Stuck in political and legal purgatory, she’s another Senate pick that Harper has to wear.

Suspended Senator Patrick Brazeau, who now manages a strip club, will be guest referee at a Great North Wrestling match in Ottawa scheduled for May 30, starring ‘Hannibal The Death Dealer’ and ‘Soa (Spirit of Allah) Amin’. Another personal choice of the PM.

Brazeau is facing two trials on personal matters: for assault and sexual assault, and for assault, threats and possession of cocaine. A framed photo of Brazeau, the PM and the alleged victim in this case has been entered into evidence at Brazeau’s ongoing sexual assault trial. The court has set aside 12 days in June for a preliminary trial on Brazeau’s Senate expense charges — the very day that Duffy’s trial is scheduled to resume. That trial could easily run into the fall election.

Former Harper advisor Bruce Carson — already a man with a criminal record before his first day on the job in the PMO — is facing charges for influence peddling related to his work at the University of Calgary. He also will be going to court in the fall on similar charges related to a water purification company whose product he was trying to flog to native bands.

And then there’s Arthur Porter, still fighting extradition from Panama back to Canada on fraud charges related to a Montreal hospital contract with SNC Lavalin. They involve an alleged $22 million in kickbacks to the good doctor and others. (Porter has cancer and has had three months to live … for several years now. The miracle of self-treatment.)

Harper appointed Porter as head of SIRC, the body that oversees CSIS. The passage of Bill C-51 leaves Canada the only nation in the Five Eyes intelligence partnership that does not have parliamentary oversight. If Porter hadn’t been caught, he might still be in charge of the oversight committee monitoring CSIS. Steve the talent scout strikes again.

The Harper team had to put the debate cobra back in the basket in order to avoid to limit the damage from these and other embarrassments. And it’s not like the hits haven’t kept hitting: Take that humiliating security breach while the PM was doing a ‘surprise’ flying tour of the front in Iraq. Despite making journalists sign an agreement stating they would not take photos of special forces soldiers for security reasons, the PMO posted photos showing their faces on 24/7, the government’s nauseous, in-house propaganda site. All marketing, all the time.

Confronted with this bozo rush to make political hay, the PMO said the military vetted the videos before they were published online. It took eight hours for the Nightmare Team to admit the videos were a security breach, to take them down, and to give one of those half-assed non-apologies this government does so well.

The Globe and Mail learned that, contrary to what the PMO said, the Department of National Defence hadn’t screened the videos before they were posted. An honest mistake, or just another reflexive lie from a government that makes it up as it goes along?

Remember, DND had taken the blame for a cabinet-level bungle before. When the mission in Iraq was expanded into Syria, the Harper government claimed that it was because Canada was the only other member of the coalition besides the U.S. with smart bombs. When it turned out everyone had them, Defence Minister Jason Kenney attached the goat horns to the Chief of the Defence Staff, who meekly wore them. Not this time.

Mike Duffy has said that the prime minister didn’t order him to repay the expense money because he owed it: “It’s not about what you did,” Harper said, according to Duffy. “It’s about the perception of what you did that’s created in the media. The rules are inexplicable to our base.”

Steve’s record of misrule is every bit as hard to explain — something that should become crystal clear once he’s forced to answer for it, in public and on camera.

Michael Harris is a writer, journalist, and documentary filmmaker. He was awarded a Doctor of Laws for his “unceasing pursuit of justice for the less fortunate among us.” His nine books include Justice Denied, Unholy Orders, Rare ambition, Lament for an Ocean, and Con Game. His work has sparked four commissions of inquiry, and three of his books have been made into movies. His new book on the Harper majority government, Party of One, is a number one best-seller.

ISIS mission: Canadian airstrikes on Syria could come within days

Conservatives say military strikes in Syria are legally justified and necessary

Canadian fighter jets will soon be launching airstrikes in Syria now that the House of Commons has approved the federal government’s plan to expand and extend its military mission in Iraq.​

 

Federal MPs voted 142-129 in favour of a motion extending the mission for up to a full year and authorizing bombing runs in Syria against targets belonging to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

A senior government source told CBC News that Canada could begin airstrikes on Syrian targets within a day or two.

The original mission deployed six CF-18 fighter jets, one CC-150 Polaris air-to-air refuelling aircraft, two CP-140 Aurora surveillance aircraft. Some 600 aircrew and other personnel are currently deployed.

Up to 69 special forces advisers will also remain in the region to advise and assist Kurdish peshmerga forces in their efforts to beat back the advance of ISIS militants.

The Conservatives say military strikes in Syria are legally justified and necessary, and that Canada has a moral obligation to do its part to beat back the global threat of terrorism.

“While the coalition has succeeded in stopping ISIL’s territorial spread, the global threat that ISIL poses remains,” Prime Minister Stephen Harper said in a statement after the vote.

“In particular, we cannot stand on the sidelines while ISIL continues to promote terrorism in Canada as well as against our allies and partners, nor can we allow ISIL to have a safe haven in Syria,” Harper said.

Neither the NDP nor the Liberals supported the original mission, nor its extension, arguing the government had not adequately made the case for going to war in the first place and in the six months since, haven’t been honest with Canadians about it the mission’s true scope.

NDP amendments fail

The New Democrats had sought to amend the motion to remove Canadians from combat and refocus all the government’s efforts on humanitarian work. Their amendments failed to pass.

The Conservatives say the plan to allow Canadian fighter jets to bomb ISIS targets within Syria would not be to prop up Assad. Islamic State fighters are using the eastern part of that country as a base and cannot be allowed to do so, they argue.

The opposition has argued that Canada lacks the legal basis to expand air strikes into Syria without that country’s express consent, something the Conservatives had said last year they would seek before expanding the mission.

The government’s premise that those strikes are legal because they are in Canada’s self-defence does not hold water, the opposition says — an argument supported by the fact no other Western nation besides the U.S. is involved there.

“This is a serious ethical problem for Canada. Dismissing it betrays the government’s lack of knowledge about a region that could suck Canada into decades of conflict,” said NDP Leader Tom Mulcair during the debate Monday.

“The prime minister tells Canadians that we can either bomb Iraq and Syria, or sit on the sidelines. That’s a false choice.”

Irwin Cotler abstains from vote

Liberal MP Irwin Cotler, well-respected by all MPs on matters of international law and human rights, had said he would abstain from the vote in part because of the government’s Syrian approach.

“In October, I was unable to support the government’s motion because of the Prime Minister’s statement that Canada would give a veto to the criminal Assad regime,” he said in a statement.

“I remain unable to support the government in this matter because its proposed expansion of Canada’s mission continues to allow Assad to assault Syrian civilians with impunity.”

Former Liberal MP Scott Andrews, now sitting as an Independent following his expulsion from caucus over allegations of sexual harassment, broke ranks with his former party and voted with the Conservatives in favour.

The extended timeline for the mission is in part so that a renewal wouldn’t come during this fall’s federal election.

Should they form government, the NDP have said they’d immediately pull Canada out of the bombing campaign, and Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has said he would do the same.

The Liberals, would, however, increase the number of soldiers sent to train Iraqis to fight ISIS.

But with no clear end goal for the bombing mission, Trudeau said Monday, it’s not one his party can support.

“Will our involvement in this mission end next March, or was the foreign affairs minister being more truthful when he explicitly compared this war to Afghanistan, saying that we are in this for the longer term,” Trudeau said.

“We cannot allow rhetorical appeals to moral clarity to disguise the absence of a plan.”

Among other things, Trudeau called for a massive expansion of Canada’s resettlement program for refugees from the conflict and for more Canadian soldiers to be involved in training Iraqi forces.

There was no obligation for Parliament to vote on the mission before it began, but the Harper government has made it a practice to hold a vote prior to military deployments.

Man arrested for refusing to give phone passcode to border agents

Man arrested for refusing to give phone passcode to border agents

Technically Incorrect: A Quebec resident believes his cell phone is personal. So when Canadian border agents wanted to search it, he says no.

  • March 6, 2015 12:25 PM PST
    • Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that’s taken over our lives.

    Alain Philippon arrived at Halifax Stanfield International Airport in Canada and was stopped by border agents.

    He had flown in from the Dominican Republic.

    As the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reports, the agents wanted access to his cell phone. Philippon refused to give them the passcode and was arrested.

    A spokeswoman for the Canadian Border Services Agency confirmed me to that he has been “arrested under section 153.1 of the Customs Act for hindering.”

    Was he hindering? Or was he, as he told CBC, merely protecting something he deemed personal?

    The border agency spokeswoman told me: “The Customs Act (s99) authorizes officers to examine all goods and conveyances including electronic devices, such as cell phones and laptops.” She explained that the potential punishment for Philippon is a minimum fine of $1000 and a maximum fine of $25,000 and could include possible jail time.

    While refusing to reveal the precise precepts the agents used in this case to detain Philippon, the spokeswoman added: “Officers are trained to look for indicators of deception and use a risk management approach in determining which goods may warrant a closer look.”

    One person’s risk management is another person’s you’re risking my wrath.

    But when it comes to alleged national security, the concept of personal seems rarely to exist. Everything, many governments believe, should be and is being spied upon.

    CBC reports that the issue of giving your passcode to authorities has never been litigated in Canada. (Philippon’s court hearing is scheduled for May 12) It’s one thing to hand over your phone. But could handing over your passcode be deemed self-incrimination?

    In the US, the Fifth Amendment exists to protect you from incriminating yourself. As the Electronic Frontier Foundation says, courts have generally accepted that passcodes are “testimony.”

    The EFF’s senior staff attorney Hanni Fakhoury pointed me to the fact that at the US borders “the standards for search and seizure are relaxed.” Agents need neither a warrant nor individualized suspicion to search your devices.

    He did say, however, that the Ninth Court of Appeals had held that border agents must have a “reasonable suspicion” in order to insist on a “forensic examination.” Fakhoury told me: “It’s unclear what ‘forensic examination’ means.”

    Oddly, last year, the US Supreme Court unanimously ruled that cell phones carried a wealth of personal information and therefore police need a warrant before demanding they be opened for inspection. Or perhaps even forensic examination.

    At the borders, though, it seems that the law may be pushed back in favor of national security concerns.

    That’s the way the world seems to be run these days.

    Major! UFO Crash Lands in Canada and Is Being Covered Up by Government! Is it Alien or Is it Military? You Decide…

    Major! UFO Crash Lands in Canada and Is Being Covered Up by Government! Is it Alien or Is it Military? You Decide…

    In Manitboa, Canada on the Jackhead Reservation reports have been surfacing of a UFO crash landing into Lake Winnipeg. Recently a call came into Thrid Phase of the Moon reporting this. The man went by the name of Mark. Here is part of the dialogue: 

    “Apparently a disc shaped craft was seen crashing through the ice on the lake, at least one person got photographic evidence but has since been detained by the Canadian military. UFO crash in rural Manitoba Canada: A UFO crash landed into a frozen lake within the last 24 hours on a Indian reservation in rural Manitoba. I have contact with a former resident of the reservation and their family still lives on the reservation and informed them about the situation this evening.

    I have also been informed that nobody is allowed to leave or enter the reservation at this time and that the military has been going door to door talking with residents. They are telling the residents that they are conducting emergency training exercises, but there has been an extreme cold front in Manitoba over the last 2 days and it is extremely dangerous to spend time outdoors for any period.

    The military has moved in all their equipment effectively blocking any view of what may have crashed into the water or what they are doing there, but I’m sure they are recovering the evidence.

    I will get back in touch with in a few hours, I was told the name of the reservation but it was very long and hard to pronounce, I will get the exact spelling of the reservation in a few hours when I meet with my contact and I will forward any new information over.” Mark 

    Here is the full video dialogue between Third Phase and Mark (the aircraft in the video is not the aircraft they are talking about, it’s just pictured during conversation) 

    But that’s not all! Reports were also coming in on Facebook, a man by the name of Brent Mancheese linked CNN stating

    “UFO crash reported on the Jackhead reserve in Manitoba, Canada apparently the Canadian Military have vehicles lined up on north Shore. ..they are threatening anybody who tries to take pics….lots of eye witnesses…Thur is round object being hauled across the lake being pulled by snow mobiles and bombardier.”

    Furthermore many on Twitter and Facebook were posting pictures like these: 

    Despite the outcry from citizens in the area about the crashed UFO and reports of military forces using snowmobiles to drag away a large disc, the Canadian Forces are claiming this is all just one big military training exercise training search and rescue how to deal with a plan crash in the Arctic. 

    According to Lt.-Col. Paul Davies, commanding officer of 38 Territorial Battalion Group in Canada, who was reportedly involved in the Arctic Response Company Group training exercise on Lake Winnipeg, stated this to CBC News

    “There’s no aliens, just my friends in the air force who are out there helping us on this exercise…I have the commander of that air force contingent sitting right beside me and, you know, he assures us that that was not a UFO, but that was him.”

    The trouble with this statement is the Canadian Forces are refusing to show the supposed “Military craft” to the public. If this is a training exercise why not display the craft to stop the talk about it being a UFO? 

    Third Phase of the Moon is also reporting that they have an image of this craft sent in by viewers, however no photographs have surfaced as of yet. Here is that breaking report: 

    In the event Third Phase Of The Moon or the Canadian Forces releases a photo I will display it here for you to see. 

    This photo has recently surfaced on Facebook… 

    (Found Here)

    That said, I guess the ultimate decision is up to you. Do you believe this is another UFO coverup like what happened in Roswell, New Mexico? Or is it a military training exercise as Canadian Authorities claim?
