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.

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

Six Issues Canadian Election Won’t Touch

Six Issues Canadian Election Won’t Touch

May 1, 2011

canada.freemason.party.leaders.jpg
Update. As you know by now, the Harper Conservatives won a majority of 167 seats. A reaction against the string of needless elections, and fear of the NDP (socialist) resurgence resulted in 40% of the electorate coalescing around the Conservatives, sufficient for a majority. The NDP did become the official opposition with about 104 seats. The Liberals were devastated with about 34.   
by Henry Makow Ph.D.
Rich in natural resources, Canada rode out the recession unscathed. The unemployment rate is only 7.7%, less than the 35-year average (8.53%.) The Canadian dollar is now worth $1.05 US.
The Harper minority government has provided competent if uninspired leadership. But rather than be grateful, Canadians are voting today in their fifth election in the last 10 years.
Style, not substance, brought down the Harper government. The Opposition spoke of a “democratic deficit” and charged them with “contempt of parliament.”  The Harper Conservatives weren’t sensitive enough to the feelings and prerogatives of the Opposition parties.
The world is going to hell and spoiled Canadians are squabbling over these niceties (while avoiding defining issues which I will discuss below.) 
Nevertheless, this unnecessary and unwanted election may actually bring some superficial change. The majority of Canadians are left-leaning. They like government social programs, cushy jobs and hand-outs.  Harper’s government is a little less generous and more business-oriented. Harper himself seems remote. 
Until now, the Left  vote was divided between three parties, the Liberals, the NDP and the regional Bloq Quebecois. But polls indicate that a general  crankiness has led to a large swing to the socialist NDP.
This has thrown predictions into disarray. Will the NDP divide the Left sufficiently to give Harper the majority of seats he covets? Or will it set the stage for a Left-leaning coalition government? Or will there be stalemate and gridlock? We’ll find out tonight. 
DEFINING ISSUES
Apart from who gets the handouts, people or corporations, there have been no defining issues. All four parties are generally agreed, or don’t want to risk alienating anyone by bringing them up. I suspect all four leaders are Freemasons or affiliated in some way. Here is a comparison of the party platforms. As you can see, they differ only in emphasis.
As a result, there is an air of unreality about this election. Here are six issues which would have made it real.      
1.  The handling of the G-20 Summit in Toronto last June: The billion dollar cost of “security” has been a minor issue. But the decision to use the conference as a NWO martial law exercise is not an issue. 1105 peaceful demonstrators were arrested and thrown into makeshift concentration camps.  This was the largest mass arrest in Canadian history. Undercover cops dressed up as violent anarchists, broke windows and set fires to police cars. Only 99 charges were laid. A thousand people were rounded up for no good reason. It was a national disgrace. The Harper government is extremely vulnerable on this issue yet the so-called “Opposition” parties have not made it an issue.

2. Harper’s pandering to Israel and Zionism. Harper has said “Canada will defend Israel whatever the cost.” Excuse me? Israel is the world’s fifth largest nuclear power. Canada is a military pipsqueak in comparison. Harper had nothing but praise for Israel’s slaughter of 900 non-combatants in Gaza in Dec. 2008. The Opposition leader has murmured about Canada returning to the role of honest broker, but neither he nor the NDP have made this an issue. There is a lot of anti-Zionist feeling in Canada, especially Quebec, but apparently the Masonic lodge has agreed on this one. Many Canadian Jews are also uncomfortable with Harper’s carte blanche for Israel.
Harper’s main fundraiser is a Jewish billionaire named Irving Gerstein. According to Wikipedia: “On February 23, 2011, Irving Gerstein was charged along with Senator Doug Finley for violations of the Canada Elections Act. Elections Canada alleges Irving Gerstein was complicit in a scheme that involved filing false tax claims and exceeding federal spending limits on campaign advertisements. If found guilty Gerstein faces up to a year in prison and fines exceeding $25,000.”           
3. Immigration. “Multiculturalism” has always been an issue too important to world government to allow Canadians (or Americans) to debate it. Any demurrals have been stigmatized as “racism.” Canada used to be a country of European Christian origin with a vibrant ethnic minority. It is becoming an Asian-Latin-African country with a European minority.
India, Japan, China, Nigeria, Mexico, Brazil, South Africa and Israel would not allow their cultural character to be transformed by migration. Yet the Illuminati bankers will not let Canada, the US and other people of European Christian origin have their own national homelands. Again, no political party will touch this issue because they are all in the same camp.     
4. Libya. The Canada I grew up in did not do the Rothschilds’ killing in far off places like Afghanistan and Libya. Canada spent $20 billion and lost 160 soldiers in Afghanistan. It has sent six CF-18’s to bomb Libya and kill Gadhafi’s children. China, Russia, Brazil, Germany and India abstained. Germany and Italy bowed out of NATO operations. All four Canadian political parties agreed to do it. This could have been a defining election issue. It is not. 
5. The “Security and Prosperity Partnership Agreement,”  the integration of North America is continuing behind the scenes. All opposition parties have signed on. 
“The SPP is a treasonous metamorphosis  of our federal and provincial government bureaucracies into formal instruments to implement the agenda of  the shadow government … dominated by the U.S Council on Foreign Relations, and the US military apparatus.
“Since March 2005, under the direction of three senior cabinet ministers of each country, about 100 working groups of unelected officials from government and industry have been meeting at taxpayer expense …restructuring of the apparatus of governance…implementing changes in our border crossings, in our airports, on our airplanes, in our skies, on and to our roads and highways, in our personal identification systems, in our health, in our vaccines, over our food supplements, in our pesticide safety  levels, in our schools and  universities, in the exploitation of our natural resources-our rivers, lakes, oil, gas, in our environment, in the arms industry, in the manufacture and use of  depleted uranium, in the exploitation of and experimentation on our indigenous people and our military personnel, in immigration, over our right of Habeas Corpus, in our right of due process, our right to assemble and our freedom of speech, etc., etc.”
6. Monetary Independence
The Statute of Westminster (1931) gave Canada the political freedom to make all domestic and foreign decisions but the ownership of the Canadian Federal Government didn’t change. On its heels came the birth of the Bank of Canada in 1934. The British Crown stepped behind the curtain to allow the appearance of autonomy, but it remained in full force through the field of finance.
“Her Majesty owns the Bank of Canada. The personal and corporate income taxes paid by Canadians are the profits for the Bank of Canada. These profits go to Her Majesty and the Bank of England, absorbing more than 10% of the GNP of Canada every year.”
“The ruling political party in Ottawa is not the real Government of Canada. They are the middle managers separating the owners from the Canadian people. The British Crown, Rothschilds and other European families own the Corporation of the Government of Canada. The British Crown owns the Bank of Canada.”
“Canada is not a sovereign nation but a private club, unknown to most Canadians. This is why the Queen’s face still appears on Canadian currency.”
Isn’t democracy an effective way to dupe the masses? That’s why everyone must vote.
CONCLUSION
Like most countries, Canada is controlled by the Rothschild banking cartel (“the Crown”, the “Bank of England” etc.) which controls our government’s credit. We will not be free until we control our own credit and renounce the portion of the debt that was created out of nothing.
The reason there are no defining issues is because our “leaders” are all working indirectly for the banking cartel, which controls the corporations and unions which finance them. The voter decides who implements the banker’s policy, with perhaps a degree of emphasis one way or the other. 
Canadians have been uniquely favored. But a people who take their good fortune for granted and fail to address the real underlying issues, eventually regret it.

Status: Unknown

Bill C-51, with the short title of Anti-terrorism Act, 2015, is a piece of passed legislation to amend over a dozen Canadian laws, including the Criminal Code,[2] to permit Canadian government agencies to share information about individuals with ease, and broadens the mandate of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS).[3] It is the first comprehensive reform of this kind since 2001.[4]

The bill was introduced and passed by the Conservative Party, who hold a majority in Parliament, with support from the Liberal Party.[5][6] It was opposed by the Green Party of Canada[7] and the Official Opposition, the New Democratic Party (NDP), who have also filibustered Parliament to increase the time allocated to expert witness testimony on the Bill.[8]

This proposed anti-terrorism Bill passed third reading with a vote 183-96 in favour.

610xca4

Background
I think it’s obvious that the attacks in October were at least inspired by the insane vision of ISIL … a genocidal terrorist organization that has explicitly, and on several occasions, said that it is targeting Canada.

Jason Kenney, Defence Minister[9]

Between 2013 and 2014, there had been twelve threat-to-VIP incidents according to the RCMP.[10]

On October 20, 2014, Martin Couture-Rouleau deliberately rammed a car into a pair of Canadian Armed Forces soldiers in a shopping centre parking lot in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec. The attack was linked to terrorism by government and police officials including in a statement by Prime Minister Stephen Harper.[11][12]

On October 22, 2014, a series of shootings occurred on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, conducted by Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, which left one Canadian soldier and Zehaf-Bibeau dead.[13] Prime Minister Stephen Harper labelled the shootings as a ‘terrorist act’, stating that “this will lead us to strengthen our resolve and redouble our efforts and those of our national security agencies to take all necessary steps to identify and counter threats and keep Canada safe here at home, just as it will lead us to strengthen our resolve and redouble our efforts to work with our allies around the world and fight against the terrorist organizations who brutalize those in other countries with a hope.”[14] After the incident security on Parliament Hill has been transferred to the RCMP.[10]

In response to these incidents, the Conservative government introduced multiple pieces of legislation that affect security, privacy and the power of policy agencies such as bills C-13, S-4, and C-44.[15]

On February 23, 2015, Bill C-51 passed the second reading in the House of Commons with a vote of 176-87.[16]

In order to supervise the proper construction of the bill, the Conservative government planned to allot three sessions to witness testimony. After an NDP filibuster, the number of testimonies expanded to nine.[17]

Summary

Part one enacts the Security of Canada Information Sharing Act, which authorizes the disclosure of information throughout and within the government of Canada regarding activities that “undermine” Canadian security.

Part two enacts the Secure Air Travel Act, which creates listing mechanisms and prohibitions for persons who may pose a threat to air transportation or who may travel abroad to commit terrorism offences.

Part three makes significant amendments to the Criminal Code including criminalization of the expression of ideas related to terrorism.

Part four expands the mandate of CSIS to operate both inside and outside of Canada (also in conjunction with Bill C-44) and to operate in a more active manner, as opposed to its previously passive information collection role.

Part five relates to amendments to immigration security certificate legislation allowing, in part, the government to withhold information from the specially appointed, national security approved Special Advocates retained to represent a detained person in confidential and closed national security hearings.[18]

Objective

With an expanded mandate, CSIS would be granted the ability to “disrupt terror plots, make it easier for police to limit the movements of a suspect, expand no-fly list powers, crack down on terrorist propaganda, and remove barriers to sharing security-related information.”[3]

Under the bill’s changes, seventeen Canadian departments would be able to exchange information easily between each other, including tax information from the Canada Revenue Agency.[19]

Bill C-51 grants the Canadian government the ability to rightly intercede and stop “violent Islamic jihadi terrorists” inspired by the existence of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.[18] Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney stated that the international jihadi movement has “declared war on Canada” and other countries around the world.[20] He further reassured that the new tactics granted to CSIS would only be used if there are reasonable grounds to believe a particular activity constitutes a threat to the security of Canada.[20]

Support

Prime Minister Stephen Harper proposed the legislation, stating that the bill offered “considerable” oversight, and that it is a fallacy to suppose that “every time you protect Canadians, you take away their liberties.”[16]

The Liberal Party supports the bill;[21][22] Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau has said it offers “significant improvements that will keep Canadians safer,” although he wants the bill to include more oversight and regular reviews. He has also suggested that his support is in part based on the upcoming election, and tactically avoiding the Conservative Party’s “fear narrative.”[19]

Criticism

Threat to civil rights


It is absolutely vital that terrorist threats be addressed through measures that are in keeping with international human rights obligations.

Alex Neve, secretary general of Amnesty International Canada[23]

The Canadian arm of Amnesty International indicated that the anti-terrorism bill could be used to target environmental activists and aboriginal protesters, or any other form of protest without an official permit or court order.[24] An RCMP report names Greenpeace in language that would permit CSIS powers against them.[25]

Information sharing

Daniel Therrien, the appointed federal Privacy Commissioner,[26] suggests that the bill fails to protect the safety and privacy of Canadians, for it grants unprecedented and excessive powers to government departments and agencies.[27] His analysis indicates that Bill C-51 “opens the door to collecting, analyzing and potentially keeping forever the personal information of all Canadians,” including every instant of “a person’s tax information and details about a person’s business and vacation travel.” Ultimately, Therrien calls for significant changes and amends to Bill C-51, so that it respects privacy rights.[27]

Law professor Craig Forcese, suggests that the increase of information the bill permits would “create a new concept of information sharing that is so vast that it risks increasing the size of the haystack to such a magnitude that it becomes more difficult to find needles”.[19]

Redundancy

Former British Columbia MP and cabinet minister Chuck Strahl says there is no need for greater oversight, and the existing five-member Security Intelligence Review Committee has done a good job to date.[28]

Enhanced CSIS disruption powers

Use of Islamophobia and fear tactics in the media

Lorne Dawson, a University of Waterloo sociology professor, stated that “CSIS is likely more interested in the kind of anti-immigrant, anti-Islam sentiment that has taken root in some parts of northern Europe.”[29]

On March 4, 2015, the Conservative Party released a promotional graphic over Facebook featuring an UGUS spokesperson threatening western shopping malls, naming West Edmonton Mall specifically. The post was judged to be “fear mongering”.[30][31]

260073_10150230217120825_697110824_7416669_4310836_n

Response

Open letters from Canadians

One hundred law professors have written against the bill.[32]

Over 150 Canadian Business leaders signed an open letter to the government circulated by OpenMedia.ca.

The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke sent an open letter against the bill writing: “We feel that Bill C-51, in its current state, could potentially and perhaps even predictably be used to future oppress our defense of our Aboriginal rights and Title.”[33]

Public protest

The main website for the coalition of groups working to stop C-51 can be found at StopC51.ca. It is hosted by OpenMedia.ca in collaboration with several other organizations and people across the country. The #StopC51 campaign has seen over 235,000 online actions as of June 1, 2015 in addition to in-person events across the country.

Anti Bill C-51 rally in Calgary

Under the leadership of Paul Finch, the BCGEU called a major anti-C51 rally for Vancouver and began funding LeadNow to organize actions nationally.[34] Then after a successful post on the social media website Reddit, under the site’s subsection /r/Canada, a group of online activists generated another subsection for the organization of protests across the country.[35][36] Within a few weeks, over 70,000 Canadians have spoken out against the bill.[32]

Through ‘we.leadnow.ca’, forty-five protests occurred across Canada on March 14, 2015, which organizers called a Day of Action.[37] The rally drew thousands of demonstrators across fifty-five Canadian cities.[38] NDP leader Thomas Mulcair joined demonstrators in Montreal in a march to Justin Trudeau’s office, while Green Party leader Elizabeth May joined the rally in Toronto.[38]

Political response

The Prime Minister is telling Canadians they need to choose between their security and their rights — that safety and freedom are mutually exclusive. Instead of putting forward concrete measures to make Canadians safer and protect our freedoms, Conservatives have put politics over principle and introduced a bill that is sweeping, dangerously vague, and likely ineffective.

Thomas Mulcair, Leader of the Official Opposition[39]

On January 30, 2015, during an interview on CTV’s Question Period, B.C. Premier Christy Clark expressed opposition to the Bill.[40]

On February 4, 2015, the Communist Party of Canada began a campaign against Bill C-51 stating they “will do everything in our power to help defeat Bill C-51.”[41] On March 4, 2015, the party publicly supported the cross-Canada Day of Action against Bill C-51.[42]

On February 17, 2015, Elizabeth May of the Green Party of Canada voiced that she has “a number of concerns with the proposed legislation and wants it scrapped entirely.”[43]

On February 18, 2015, Thomas Mulcair of the NDP showcased his party’s opposition to the bill. During Question Period in the Canadian House of Commons, Mulcair stated that Canadians “should not have to choose between security and their rights.”[44]

On February 19, 2015, a joint statement was published and signed by four former prime ministers: Jean Chretien, Paul Martin, Joe Clark, and John Turner. Eighteen others signed the statement, including five former Supreme Court justices, seven former Liberal solicitors general and ministers of justice, three past members of the intelligence review committee, two former privacy commissioners and a retired RCMP watchdog.[45] The statement calls for stronger security oversight, as “serious human rights abuses can occur in the name of maintaining national security”.[45]

69738_160991607279402_100001056916300_314085_1819797_n

On March 1, 2015, the Pirate Party of Canada provided a press release in opposition to the bill, calling for debate, criticism and discussion.[36] Among their criticisms, they believe that the bill is redundant as there are existent laws dealing with terrorist, and this proposal opens the potential for governmental abuse as it “will also allow the government to arrest and incarcerate any citizen based on subjective evidence, then have that evidence destroyed”[46]

On March 6, 2015, Daniel Therrien, the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, stated that the powers of Bill C-51 “are excessive and the privacy safeguards proposed are seriously deficient.” He speaks to the potential of limitless powers within the 17 federal agencies that would exist if this bill were to be passed.[47]

His evil REACTION was to uses any sort of violent gun related event and call it a Terrorist event or if necessary use CSIS to create evil terrorist events

His payback SOLUTION for giving his Dictatorship such a hard time was finally ramming Bill C-51 with his Criminal De-Facto Majority Government down Canadian throats and clearly showing his total CONTEMPT For the Canadian People You and Me AGAIN

It’s a kind of perverse use of the Hegalian Dialect but it is still the same old Satan tactic of Deception. It’s a  Satanic evil principal of  Deceiving your opponents But when your decieving your own countrymen it becomes the worst of crimes it becomes TREASON

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.)

44776_135045803207316_100001056916300_187579_2215423_n

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.”

260073_10150230217120825_697110824_7416669_4310836_n

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.

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.

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, satanic 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.

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.

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.

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 Canada 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.

Canada's PM To Putin: "I Guess I'll Shake Your Hand..." Putin's Response "Was Not Positive"

by Zero Hedge | November 16, 2014

Following last week’s (humiliating for the US) APEC meeting in Beijing, in which the BRIC nations clearly distanced themselves from the “developed world” and the topic of the “Russian invasion of Ukraine” was largely missing as it is clearly not in the interest of the Pacific nations to warmonger when the two key nations, Russia and China are obviously not complying with the western media ‘straight to populism‘ narrative, it was time for another major world summit, this time in the quite “western” Brisbane, Australia.

It was here that the G-7 part of the G-20 nations seized the opportunity to quickly pivot against Moscow and remind Europe that the reason why Europe is in a triple-dip recession (if one removes the GDP “boost” from hookers and blow) is because of Russia’s “take over” of east Ukraine, ignoring the reality that it was the US State Department’s Victoria Nuland that incited the Kiev coup and the west that imposed the “costly” sanctions on Russia which have hurt Germany and Europe just as badly. This was all largely lost on the local, as outside the summit, Ukrainian Australians staged an anti-Putin protest, wearing headbands reading “Putin, Killer”.

It was a full court press from the start: as the NYT reports, “at a speech at a university in Brisbane, Mr. Obama called Russia’s aggression against Ukraine a “threat to the world, as we saw in the appalling shoot down of MH-17, a tragedy that took so many innocent lives, among them your fellow citizens,” a reference to the Australian citizens and residents who were killed when Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 went down in eastern Ukraine.

“As your ally and friend, America shares the grief of these Australian families, and we share the determination of your nation for justice and accountability,” Mr. Obama said.”

StevenHarper_douchebag

This charade was set to continue Sunday, when leaders from the European Union planned to meet with Mr. Obama to discuss Ukraine, among other issues, said Herman Van Rompuy, the president of the European Council. He said the European Union was committed to finding a political solution to the crisis.

“We will continue to use all the diplomatic tools, including sanctions, at our disposal,” he said.

Indeed, as Reuters adds “Western leaders warned Vladimir Putin at a G20 summit on Saturday that he risked more economic sanctions if he failed to end Russian backing for separatist rebels in Ukraine.”

But perhaps the best confirmation that all the G-20 meeting was nothing but a giant populist photo-op comes from Bloomberg which reports that “Russian President Vladimir Putin got a blunt message when he approached Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper for a handshake at today’s Group of 20 summit in Brisbane, Australia.

“I guess I’ll shake your hand but I have only one thing to say to you: you need to get out of Ukraine,” Harper told Putin, the prime minister’s spokesman Jason MacDonald said in an e-mail.

Putin’s response to the comment wasn’t positive, MacDonald said, without elaborating. Putin and Harper talked briefly, according to Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

“Indeed Harper told Putin that Russia should leave Ukraine,” Peskov said by phone today in Brisbane. Putin told him that this is impossible because they are not there.”    Which is the real TRUTH” known by all alternative media station

Asked about the tone of the meeting between the two leaders, Peskov said “it was within the bounds of decency.”

Say no more.

Yet at the end of the day, captioned photo-op or not, one wonders how much of all the front-page drama is even remotely real when every single time the west goes on the “offensive” against Putin with “costs” just to have a convenient scapegoat for Europe’s ongoing depression, one hears in the back of one head the following exchange:

Obama: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”

Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir”

 

Vladimir Putin leaves G20 summit citing a need to catch up on sleep

Vladimir Putin has left the G20 summit citing a need to catch up on sleep, after the Kremlin played down reports the Russian President was leaving due to the frosty reception awarded to him by other world leaders over Ukraine.

Mr Putin said the trip home would take 18 hours and he needs at least four hours’ sleep before returning to work on Monday.

The Russian leader said he explained his reasons to his Australian host, Prime Minister Tony Abbott, who, he said, responded with: “No problem.”

Despite Mr Abbott’s shirtfront threat setting the scene for the two leader’s encounter in Australia, President Putin departed Brisbane on Sunday praising his Australian counterpart while Mr Abbott acknowledged he had treated Mr Putin with courtesy as he was a guest of Australia.

Mr Abbott earlier this week sought Russian compensation and demanded Mr Putin apologise to victims of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, which was shot down over Eastern Ukraine in July.

While Mr Abbott, as host of the 2014 G20, cuddled a koala alongside Mr Putin, conservative world leaders including Britain’s David Cameron, Canada’s Stephen Harper and Germany’s Angela Merkel delivered stern words to the Russian leader over Ukraine.

Mr Abbott said the G20 and APEC forums had provided world leaders the opportunity to confront Russia.

“When all is said and done President Putin was a guest in our country, President Putin is a member of the G20 and I was happy to treat him with respect and courtesy while he was here in Australia,” he told reporters.

Mr Putin praised Mr Abbott as a “specific” and “business-like person” and credited him with creating a “wonderful atmosphere” in Brisbane.

“Our host, Mr Prime Minister, I would like to say again that he created a very wonderful atmosphere for working together. Of course, our views are not the same in some issues, but we had some very substantive conversations and I think it was helpful.

“We had a very detailed and professional conversation. Very disciplined. He made sure everyone stayed on schedule, but also provided an opportunity for everyone to say something,” he told Russian reporters before departing Australia.

A Russian journalist later informed Mr Abbott of the President’s praise to which the clearly amused prime minister replied, “I’m very happy to be on a unity ticket with Vladimir Putin on that subject”.

Mr Putin held a farewell media conference at the Hilton hotel but many Australian journalists who attempted to attend were blocked from accessing Mr Putin’s address.

The Russian leader was snubbed on arrival in Brisbane when the government sent one of the ministry’s most junior members, the Assistant Defence Minister Stuart Robert, to greet him.

In comparison, Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove and Attorney-General George Brandis welcomed other leaders.
