Banking on serious reform

Why do Canadians allow private banks to profit off our public debt when the Bank of Canada is legislated to provide low- or no-interest loans for human capital and infrastructure spending? The Bank of Canada has not issued such loans since 1974, after it funded Canada out of the Great Depression, the Second World War, the infrastructure boom, universal health care, universities and colleges, CBC and more. Monday, three judges upheld the previous ruling of justiciability. The next step is to determine the statutes of the Bank of Canada Act and if they have been subverted by conspiracy.

The monopoly of private banks' exclusive privilege of lending money to governments will, for the second time in our history, soon be put on trial. The first time it was debated in the House of Commons, it led to the creation of the Bank of Canada. It's time to restore the Bank of Canada and jail the banksters.

Fracking likely linked to 4.4 magnitude quake in Fox Creek

Alberta's provincial energy regulator says a significant earthquake in northern Alberta was likely caused by hydraulic fracturing.

If fracturing is confirmed as the cause, scientists say, it will have been the largest earthquake ever to result from using the method.

Expect a full airing of the truth, said TRC Chair

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission is promising a scathing – and sweeping - report on the federal government and Canadian society.

“Our work of truth telling and truth collecting was not easy. We had challenges throughout,” said TRC Chair Justice Murray Sinclair, at the Special Chiefs Assembly in December in Winnipeg. He said he expected this to be the last time he addressed the Assembly of First Nations since the TRC’s mandate ends July 1, 2015.

Sinclair singled out the federal government’s reticence in handing over documents that dealt with Indian residential schools as one of the TRC’s “significant challenges.” The result was three separate occasions in court, all of which ended with the TRC winning. Sinclair said four million documents, from a variety of sources, have been collected to date, and he expected that number to double.

Angry Man Threatens Students at University of Toronto Scarborough


On Thursday November 6, a 34 year-old man with no affiliation to the University of Toronto furiously entered the Scarborough Campus Students’ Union office after hours. He stole a poster that read WARNING: THIS UNIVERSITY PROFITS OFF ISRAELI APARTHEID AND OCCUPATION. All attempts to calm him down failed. After stealing the poster he drove off, recording the incident with his phone. Campus police filed a report and said to notify them if the man returns. After a couple of weeks we put up another sign. The man came back. He forced his way into the student union. We tried to calm him down and initiate dialogue. The man replied with, “I’ll rip your fucking throat out” and “I have twelve guys on standby ready”—implying that he or other people will be back. He shouted that he use to be a part of the “israeli” military and regularly killed “terrorists”.

CSIS to be given 'power to disrupt,' not arrest, in new anti-terror bill

The expected new powers would allow CSIS agents to obtain court orders to:

cancel plane or other travel reservations made by Canadians suspected of wanting to join the Islamic State or other extremists groups overseas;
block any financial transactions linked to suspected terrorist activity;
intercept shipments of Canadian-made equipment or material to Canadian individuals or groups that could be used in an attack;
switch, or make suspect equipment being shipped unusable as part of an on-going investigation.

9/11 Brainwashing Part 1

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At the start of this video is a session of the Canadian Parliament in which the question is raised regarding Canadian troops in Iraq, and the other side immediately tries to distract from that question with "WE SUPPORT ISRAEL! YOU HATE ISRAEL!"

So, Canads's government has been subverted by Israel the same as the US.

Well, you can plow through this long list at Mother Jones, or if you prefer, I’ll sum it up for you – in one word – DECEPTION.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This has nothing to do with safety. Ontario is in a lot of debt, in part because of heavy subsidies to "green" projects like windmills that went nowhere. The lowered speed limits mean more traffic tickets!

Snowden files show Canada spy agency runs global Internet watch

Canada's electronic spy agency has been intercepting and analyzing data on up to 15 million file downloads daily as part of a global surveillance program, according to a report published on Wednesday.

Critics said the revelations, made in 2012 documents obtained by former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden and leaked to journalists, showed much more oversight was needed over Canada's Communications Security Establishment (CSE).

The Canadian court case the mainstream media will not cover

The Bank of Canada, unlike the Federal Reserve in the U.S., is wholly owned by the people of Canada. It was nationalized in 1938 and was used very successfully to fund infrastructure, social programs, education, etc, for the benefit of all Canadians. It was used to bring us out of the depression, funded WWII, to build highways such as the McDonald-Cartier freeway, public transportation systems, subway lines, airports, the St. Lawrence Seaway, our universal healthcare system and our Canada Pension Plan.

Unfortunately, since Canada adopted economist Milton Friedman’s theory of monetarism in 1974 this has not been the case and one can track the progression of the dismantling of Canada since then.

NAFTA probe of Alberta's tailings ponds blocked by Canada

Canada has blocked an investigation into Alberta's tailings ponds by NAFTA's environmental watchdog.

Representatives of the Canadian government, along with Mexico and the United States, on Tuesday passed a resolution behind closed doors to stop the Commission for Environmental Cooperation from looking into whether the federal government is failing to enforce the Fisheries Act.

Two environmental groups and three private citizens had asked the commission to investigate whether tailings ponds were leaking into nearby rivers and creeks in northern Alberta.

So much for Stephen Harper’s pledge that our troops in Iraq would be in a noncombat role: Editorial

So now we know. Canadian special forces in Iraq have been “painting” Islamic State targets for our CF-18 fighter-bombers. They’re been operating so close to the front lines that they have come under fire. And they have been shooting back.

That’s not what Prime Minister Stephen Harper promised Parliament on Oct. 3 when he made the case for sending special forces. He insisted, four times, that they would have a “noncombat” role and that there would be “no ground combat mission.”

Messenger of the Gods

When people say they have no politics, it means that their politics aligns with the status quo. None of us are unbiased, none removed from the question of power. We are social creatures who absorb the outlook and opinions of those with whom we associate, and unconciously echo them. Objectivity is impossible.

The illusion of neutrality is one of the reasons for the rotten state of journalism, as those who might have been expected to hold power to account drift thoughtlessly into its arms. But until I came across the scandal currently erupting in Canada, I hadn’t understood just how quickly standards are falling.

Christopher Phillips's cottage was packed with chemicals, police say

Nova Scotia RCMP found unlabelled chemicals packed floor to ceiling in a cottage linked to biochemical weapons specialist Christopher Phillips, who made his first court appearance today on two charges – possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and uttering threats.

Const. Michael Chachula in Swift Current charged with drug trafficking

Michael Chachula, a constable with the RCMP in Swift Current, Sask., has been charged with trafficking cocaine and ecstasy and suspended from his job.

Police said Chachula, 31, was arrested in Swift Current on Monday and charged with two counts of trafficking.

“It is never easy to speak about investigations like these. It’s very disheartening that a serving police officer, sworn to uphold the law, is facing criminal charges. This is unacceptable and we understand the public expects more of us,” said Supt. Alfredo Bangloy, in a news release.

Christopher Phillips arrest: no hazardous materials found at Ottawa hotel

The RCMP issued an internal communication Tuesday about Christopher Phillips, who lives in the Halifax area, identifying him as an ex-military weapons specialist with possible mental-health issues and considered "anti-police," sources confirmed to CBC News.

A Canada-wide warrant had been issued for Phillips after a suspicious package containing hazardous chemicals was found in the garage of a home in Cole Harbour, N.S.

The RCMP communication said Phillips may have been in possession of two dangerous chemicals:

Osmium, a precious metal.
Osmium tetroxide, a highly poisonous and volatile chemical that can penetrate skin easily that should not be used without a fume hood.

Nova Scotia RCMP issued the warrant after receiving a call from Phillips's wife saying he was en route to Ottawa.

Fatal Bathurst police shooting confounds local residents

Vienneau was inside his car when he was shot by plainclothes officers conducting an investigation. He had just gotten off a train from Montreal.

Police have declined to discuss the nature of that investigation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What has emerged is that Vienneau had just gotten off the train and was in his car ready to drive home when these men with guns ran up screaming at him to get out of the car. The police DID NOT IDENTIFY themselves as police, and Vienneau, apparently thinking these men with guns were criminals, panicked, locked his doors, and refused to move, whereupon the police shot and killed him. Tragically, Vienneau was not the man the police were looking for.

Harper won’t bet case of beer on World Juniors game because of ‘Russia’s aggression in Ukraine': PMO

But continuing that tradition for Monday’s much-anticipated final between Canada and Russia would have forced him to engage with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Why Canada's Internet Keeps Getting More Expensive

A Canadian reddit poster claiming to be a Shaw employee—one of Canada’s premier telcos—with news about new internet rates created a stir online this week by posting what looked like advance details of upcoming rate plans.

The rate plans appeared to change the pricing schemes so that new customers would pay equal money for slower service. Existing customers, whose rates will be going up anyway, would be grandfathered on their old plans—with updated prices showing an obvious path for upsell to the new rate tiers.

How the CIA Launched the «Financial Pearl Harbor» Attacks on Russia and Venezuela

The net result of the CIA-inspired fracking operations, which the Saudis were warned not to pursue by petroleum engineers working for some foreign-based firms like Schlumberger, is that there will be an oil supply glut for the next 5 years. The glut will be followed by a reduction in Saudi oil production unless new oil fields are brought on line. There is now a major push by U.S. and Canadian oil companies to bring online the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to the United States to offset the expected sharp rise in oil prices in four to five years. But with Canada suffering financially from the drop in oil revenues, the Keystone XL project is also on financially shaky ground.

Palestinians criticize Canada for boycotting meeting on Israeli settlements

The top Palestinian diplomat in Canada says the Harper government should not have boycotted a United Nations conference this week that harshly criticized Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Said Hamad says Canada should have joined other countries at a conference in Geneva examining the Fourth Geneva Convention, which governs the rules of war and military occupation.

Some 126 countries of the 196 international parties to the convention adopted a resolution Wednesday saying Israel’s construction of settlements does not conform to its international legal obligations as an occupying power.

Along with Israel and the U.S., Canada boycotted the conference, another example of unwavering Conservative support of Israel — a position that has exposed deep differences with the majority of the United Nations.

Anti-marijuana ad's dubious claim a scary hit with parents

The assertion about lowered IQ is derived in part from a 2012 Duke University study of 38 heavy users of cannabis, but has since been challenged, notably by a British study of 2,612 young people which could find no such link.

A spokesperson for Health Canada, Eric Morrissette, cited other research published in 2012, known as the Dunedin Study, as the basis for the ad's assertion about reduced IQ.

But the House of Commons health committee reported in October that there are doubts about the Dunedin Study's conclusion. A key witness — Zach Walsh, a psychology professor at the University of British Columbia — told the committee in May that "substantial concerns have been raised in various publications" about the IQ claim.

Another committee witness warned MPs against using "scare tactics" in ads, which must rather focus on "accurate information," says the report of the committee, which recommended the government launch a public-awareness campaign.

Like Canada’s Harper Government, Obama Administration Muzzling Its Scientists

In recent years, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has come under fire for disallowing scientists working for the Canadian government to speak directly to the press.

An article published in August by The New Republic said “Harper’s antagonism toward climate-change experts in his government may sound familiar to Americans,” pointing to similar deeds done by the George W. Bush Administration. That article also said that “Bush’s replacement,” President Barack Obama, “has reversed course” in this area.

Society for Professional Journalists, the largest trade association for professional journalists in the U.S., disagrees with this conclusion.

Did the authorities raid every prison for the criminally insane to swell CIA ranks? Far worse, we're watching a desperate attempt to frame this whole series of vile acts as a period in (recent) history now thankfully ended. Don't you go believing that fairytale, now.

Premier Jim Prentice warns of consequences of low oil in State of the Province Address

In a nearly 45 minute speech in front of 700 people, Premier Jim Prentice gave his first State of the Province Address Tuesday.

Prentice began his speech at the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce luncheon by acknowledging the fact oil has hit record lows lately, sitting around $63 a barrel Tuesday compared to just months ago when it was going for $100 a barrel.

“The economic viability, the sustainability, the strength of our energy industry in this province is not in question,” Prentice told the room.

“This is a price trough. This is a price trough, to be clear, of uncertain duration. Longer, I think, than many people realize,” he added.

Stephen Harper was a member of the ultra-right-wing Northern Foundation in 1989, Mr. Harrison documents that this was a group that had numerous Neo-Nazi skinheads as organizers, as well as a leadership that included a well-known white supremacist and anti-feminist crusader as a prominent leader that sought to take over the mass-media to enable the fulfillment of a right wing agenda. The Northern Foundation, with the support of corporate allies was able to get Mr. Harper elected in the first place by indeed, taking over the mass-media in Canada. This was done to shelter Mr. Harper from the kinds of critical journalism which had kept him out of power, in the first place. Corporate mass-media owners would seek to remake Mr. Harper and the Conservative Party from being ultra right, into a fabricated image of a non-threatening “moderately conservative” party.

John Baird says Canada won’t join U.S. in airstrikes in Syria

Canada has no plans to follow its neighbour the United States in expanding airstrikes against the Islamic State group into Syria, the country’s top diplomat said Saturday during a visit to the Middle East.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Foreign Minister John Baird said Canada has a responsibility to contribute to the U.S.-led bombing campaign in part because the Islamic State group has attracted Canadian fighters to its ranks. But he insisted that support would be confined to Iraq for now.

“At this time we’re focusing on our current mission . . . We’ll stick with Iraq,” he said at a security conference in the Gulf island kingdom of Bahrain.

5 Stories That Prove Police Are Just as Terrifying in Canada

. That police in Saskatoon would routinely take First Nation people picked up for being drunk and disorderly to the outskirts of town, often during the winter, and tell them to sober up on the walk home was common knowledge in the area. The act of doing that actually has a name. It's called a "Midnight Blue Tour" or "Starlight Tour", and that it was commonplace in Saskatoon was more like a legend at the time, but one based on the fact that, over the years, several First Nation people in Saskatoon turned up dead of hypothermia on the edge of town, for reasons that no one could ever really explain.

Gill Rosenberg, Canadian citizen, may have been captured by ISIS

"She's originally from White Rock, British Columbia," CBC's Briar Stewart reported from London today. "She went to the British Columbia Institute of Technology, where she studied aviation.

"In 2006 she immigrated to Israel, where she later worked as a pilot with the army search and rescue unit.

"In 2009 … she was extradited to the United States, where she served time in prison for her part of an international phone scam. Now, after serving her time — it was just more than three years — she then went back to the Middle East, and obviously this fall she travelled … to Iraq to train with Kurdish fighters."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But the CBC is pushing the fact that she is a Canadian woman, to serve the war agenda! Yet this article says she became an Israeli citizen, has a criminal record, and wanted to fight with the Kurds. This reeks of another setup to push the war propaganda.

Jennifer Huculak-Kimmel billed $950K US after giving birth in U.S.

Jennifer Huculak-Kimmel gave birth nine weeks early while on holiday in Hawaii in November 2013. Her baby daughter had to be hospitalized.

"My water broke two days into our holiday," Huculak-Kimmel said. "I spent six weeks on bed rest and then baby Reece was delivered by emergency C-section on December 10th."

Reece had to stay in the hospital for just over two months. Huculak-Kimmel thought that her insurance would cover the almost $1 million US bill.

In the end, Blue Cross denied payment. In a letter to the family, a Blue Cross worker wrote, "We are unable to provide coverage for any medical expenses incurred for Ms. Huculak's baby" and "please note that Ms. Huculak's travel policy expired on Nov. 9, 2013."

Petrodollar Panic? China Signs Currency Swap Deal With Qatar & Canada

The march of global de-dollarization continues. In the last few days, China has signed direct currency agreements with Canada becoming North America's first offshore RMB hub, which CBC reports analysts suggest "could double maybe even triple the level of Canadian trade between Canada and China," impacting the need for Dollars.But that is not the week's biggest Petrodollar precariousness news, as The Examiner reports, a new chink in the petrodollar system was forged as China signed an agreement with Qatar to begin direct currency swaps between the two nations using the Yuan, and establishing the foundation for new direct trade with the OPEC nation in the very heart of the petrodollar system.

Canada’s False Flag Terror: Fingerprints of U.S. Involvement

The context was within the intensification of the so-called “global war on terror” and in concert with the pro-military Stephen Harper government’s deployment of warplanes supposedly fighting “the terrorists” of the suddenly-emerging “Islamic State.” The first bombing sorties of Canadian F-18s took place hours after the violent acts of supposed “homegrown” and “self-radicalized” supporters of “Islamic jihad.”

122 birds died after landing on 3 northern Alberta tailings ponds

The Alberta Energy Regulator says 122 waterfowl died on tailings ponds operated by Canadian Natural Resources Ltd., Syncrude and Suncor in the northern Alberta Oilsands.

CNRL has found 60 birds so far at the Horizon site. Syncrude had to euthanize 30 birds that landed on a pond at the Mildred Lake site.

The Alberta Energy Regulator has sent investigators to ensure wildlife deterrents were working properly at the time. The regulator believes weather may have been a factor in the birds' deaths.

TERRORISM IS LEGAL IN CANADA

The JDL is a Kahanist organization that has been banned in Israel and the United States as a terrorist group. Its Canadian branch has been implicated in a long line of vigilante violence and fear-mongering. The fact that such a piece of dreck can solicit in a respectable Jewish establishment should make us sick to our collective stomachs.

But it doesn’t. That’s because the North American Jewish community, like its Christian and atheist counterpart, is infected with the scourge of Islamophobia. I define Islamophobia in the same way I define anti-Semitism: the delegitimization of a faith and the propagation of stereotypes and prejudice against its adherents. And it is endemic in our community.

Ebola Travel Bans Buy Only Time, Not Safety

Canada red-faced after doctored space equipment image appears on govt websites

The Canadian government has had to urgently remove from its agencies’ websites a photo of Canadarm2, its contribution to space exploration, after it was discovered that the country’s name and its flag had been airbrushed on space equipment.

The original picture was taken during a spacewalk in 2005 and shows astronaut Stephen Robinson. However, there is no logo on the photo of the Canadarm2. Yet in the doctored version, the name Canada is written on the piece of equipment, with the maple leaf flag painted above the final A.

"The tactic of fairly ham-fisted airbrushing used here seems more reminiscent of North Korean propaganda posters than of Western democracies' typical PR efforts," Kenneth Cukier said, writing on a blog for the Economist, after he had come across the photo by chance.

Ex-Conservative MP Dean Del Mastro guilty on election charges

Former Conservative MP Dean Del Mastro, once a political pit bull who defended his party from partisan claims of dirty electoral tricks, has been found guilty of exceeding spending limits during the federal campaign in 2008.

Del Mastro was also convicted of failing to report a personal contribution of $21,000 to his own campaign and knowingly submitting a falsified document. He was found guilty on a fourth charge, but that charge was stayed.

The now-Independent MP, a former parliamentary secretary to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, now faces a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine, as well as the prospect of losing his House of Commons seat.

The indigenous land rights ruling that could transform Canada

The unrest is palpable. In First Nations across Canada, word is spreading of a historic court ruling recognizing Indigenous land rights. And the murmurs are turning to action: an eviction notice issued to a railway company in British Columbia; a park occupied in Vancouver; lawsuits launched against the Enbridge tar sands pipeline; a government deal reconsidered by Ontario Algonquins; and sovereignty declared by the Atikamekw in Quebec.

These First Nations have been emboldened by this summer’s Supreme Court of Canada William decision, which recognized the aboriginal title of the Tsilhqot’in nation to 1,750 sq km of their land in central British Columbia – not outright ownership, but the right to use and manage the land and to reap its economic benefits.

Canadians stand up to Islamophobe in social experiment that ends with punch

The "racist" character in the video asks the "Muslim" character to step out of a line of people waiting for a bus, accusing him of being a terrorist threat. None of the bystanders in the video support the "Islamophobic" actor. One man emphatically rejects the diatribe, pointing out that Canadians can’t blame all Muslims for the violent action of fanatics.

"You know what? You can’t stereotype and judge people by their clothes," the man says in the video.

Another man gets so aggravated that he punches the heckling actor in the face, giving him a bloody nose.

“I know two things they aren’t telling the press/public. Hopefully, you dipshits will take this seriously because my career is on the line.”

The pro-Israel Canadian government is modifying the country’s criminal code to ban any criticism of the Zionist regime for atrocities against Palestinians, an analyst says.

In a column for Press TV website, Brandon Martinez has analyzed the proposed cyber-bullying law (Bill C-13) by the administration of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

“The Zionist ruling clique of Canada, through their front-man Stephen Harper, is seeking to beef up the already-existing Orwellian ‘hate propaganda’ law, which has been primarily used to curtail criticism of Zionists and Israel,” wrote Martinez.

New report documents federal clampdown on scientists' freedom of expression

In February 2012, the scientific journal Nature published an editorial opinion piece, Frozen Out, calling on the Canadian government to reform policies that restrict media access to federal scientists. This followed numerous stories documenting delays and confusion in how different federal departments respond to requests for media interviews on scientific matters.

How has the Harper government reacted? A new report, Can Scientists Speak, finds that federal media policies remain far more restrictive than those in the United States, and gives low to failing grades to nearly all 16 departments that employ scientists.

FALSE FLAG: Ottawa Shooting Attack Reveals Evidence of ‘October Drill’

In Ottawa, on Wednesday, October 23rd, we were told that there was a shooting attack on the National War Memorial resulting in the death of soldier Nathan Crillo, followed by multiple shots at Centre Block in the government complex at Parliament Hill – but is that really the entire story?

A number of evidence points have emerged which we will cover – that there was in fact a security services and law enforcement drill (see ‘When Live Drills Go Dark’, below), taking place around the time of this bizarre shooting event in Canada.

Newspaper columnists and radio talk show hosts are paying attention to fresh polling data that shows just how uneasy Canadians are about the concept of privatization.

Last week, the National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) publicized the results of the polling done in September in which:

70 per cent of respondents agreed that: “allowing a few people to profit from services meant for all of us weakens our country's principles and core values of caring and sharing."
82 per cent agreed that “when private companies get contracts to provide government programs, the public loses control over services people depend on.”

Revealed: Muslim convert who shot dead Canadian soldier is the 'privately-educated son of country's immigration chief, had his passport revoked and has 'links to Syrian terrorist'

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the Muslim convert who fatally shot Corporal Nathan Cirillo - a 24-year-old father standing guard at Ottawa's War Memorial, was a petty criminal and the son of a leading Canadian immigration official, it has been revealed.

Born in Quebec as Michael Joseph Hall and raised in Laval, just north of Montreal, the young man lived a quiet childhood of private schools and suburban homes, with a mother who was a high ranking federal employee.

Then, after years of run-ins with the law, he converted to Islam.

Bizarrely, dozens of various Canadian armed police could be seen all Wednesday during US news coverage, running in various directions, drawing weapons, etc. A number of armed officers outside the building could be seen laughing and joking even as they drew their weapons. Others appeared to be posing for the news crew cameras. In one shot, two officers pointed their guns in unison up at the building across the street – then taking cover behind a police vehicle – while the officer behind them is casually leaning up against a wall. These scenes could be an indicator that the Ottawa shooting was staged and part of a major terror drill gone live – apparently.

Canadian jihadi says Israeli Jews welcome in ISIS

A Canadian jihadist currently fighting alongside Islamic State (IS) in Syria said that he thinks Israeli-born Jews would be accepted to join the radical group provided they convert to Islam.

The jihadist, who goes by the surname Abu Khalid Al-Kanadi ("Abu Khalid the Canadian") made the comment earlier this week via the social media website ask.fm.

Al-Kanadi, who converted in 2010, responded to several other questions on the site and noted that he was born into a Canadian family but that it was easy for him to leave to go to Syria.

"They reacted mainly with confusion, not understanding why someone would leave Canada to go to a land of war," he wrote.

When asked on the website whether he would be willing to speak to a journalist, Al-Kanadi said that "journalists are responsible for the spreading of lies against the Islamic State. Is this journalist seeking to spread the message of the media outlets of the Jews, Christians, Apostates, and Hypocrites?"

Demonizing those Canada calls 'radicalized'

Given the Fourth Estate's role as stenographer to power, it is unsurprising that the many articles asking "why" young people are attracted to overseas adventures are all playing into the same "blame Islam" game that results in horrible "jihad" headlines, increased fear, and suspicion of anyone who does not look like the CBC's Peter Whitemansbridge.

Like similar moral panics that have framed particular groups as the new internal enemy, young people both idealist and alienated now fit the focus of terror suspect, especially if they are Muslim and plan to travel overseas to visit relatives, learn Arabic, or just backpack around. Yet despite all the hyped-up chatter, no one has produced any evidence to show a threat exists to Canada and Canadians from the small number who have joined up in battling the Assad regime in Syria or worked with ISIS.

Airborne spread of Ebola "strongly suspected" by Canadian health care workers

Viral Hemorrhagic Fever: Update for Clinicians and it's prior versions said that nosocomial transmission may occur "by aerosols." This information is consistent with the posted Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) "Ebola Virus Pathogen Safety Data Sheet," which says "...airborne spread among humans is strongly suspected"

In the statement, Dr. Isra Levy, Ottawa's medical officer of health, emphasized that "Ebola virus disease spreads only through direct contact with infected bodily fluids." But the head of the Ontario Nurses Association said there is no consensus on whether or not Ebola can spread through the air. Linda Haslam-Stroud argued that someone could inhale tiny airborne particles if exposed to them long enough in an enclosed space.

"Aerosol transmission has not been ruled out and this is the fundamental disagreement that we're having right now with the government and we're working with the government to try to resolve," she said. "Ebola has a lot of unknowns to it."

A public tweet from a large government supplier of emergency response products specializing in “high risk events” says that Disaster Assistance Response Teams were told to prepare to be activated in the month of October.

Onward global army ... maybe sooner than later?

The beauty, in the eyes of some, is that when things get really bad for the general population and more and more uprisings occur, an international army will better be able to step in and do crowd control (you know, keeping the peace) than a local army would, local soldiers being possibly reluctant to shoot real bullets at their own people. That may also be one of the reasons for the partnership with the US Northern Command - so that US troops could step in to put down a Canadian uprising, and vice versa.

Last, but still worth considering: maybe recruitment centres won't be needed if a draft is imposed, which of course would only occur if the predicted WWIII is not just a conspiracy fantasy.

I'm also getting the feeling our economy is going to tank (further), which means there will be lots of unemployed youth with no place to go but the military.

In Defense of Helen Thomas: What’s Wrong With History?

Helen Thomas’s recent request to purchase a table at the upcoming White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) annual dinner has been rejected.

In a comment on that story I said, “It’s hard to imagine anything more wrong than this.”

I base my opinion on the fact that the 91-year-old Thomas, a former WHCA president, is unique among American journalists, having covered 10 different presidential administrations in a career stretching back to Dwight Eisenhower.

It is because of Thomas as much as anyone else that women were first included at the WHCA dinner since, as the WHCA’s website mentions:

Tories’ economic reputation shot to pieces by fighter jets (i.e F-35s)

The Auditor-General’s damning indictment of deception and mismanagement over the F-35 fighter-jet program not only damages the Conservatives’ reputation for probity, it also discredits their extreme rhetoric against the opposition. Because the opposition was right.

Stephen Harper has now moved swiftly to place the procurement on a sounder footing. But the revelations of false estimates and suppressed information, coming only days after an austerity budget, could tarnish the Conservative brand like nothing that has come before.

DiManno: New tape backs up protester’s beating allegation

The outward evidence is fairly clear on a piece of footage given to the Star this week.

Those images — a handcuffed Nobody being led out of camera range by uniformed officers, in the process of being arrested last June 26, not a drop of blood on him — support the 27-year-old’s formal complaint that he was immediately afterwards subjected to another vicious beating by a couple of plainclothes detectives behind two parked police vans.

After this second purported assault, Nobody’s face was left bloodied, he says, his cheekbone shattered.

Within a week, he would undergo surgery to repair the damage.

Wake up: Arbitrary rule is all around us

In the case of one man who was arrested, and sustained a fracture below his right eye, the SIU determined that the police used excessive force. But the badge number on the man's arrest sheet did not correspond to the assigned badge number of any Toronto police officer. Even Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair has acknowledged that up to 90 officers were not wearing their name-tags during the summit weekend. He says he will discipline the officers who chose to make themselves unidentifiable, but they are not being charged with an offence.

The only conclusion we can reasonably draw is that a large number of officers were out of control during the policing of the summit. Because the police won't come forward to testify against their fellow officers, the cover up works. Officers who assault people on the street, even when the assaults are videoed, get away with it because follow officers won't say a word against them. When the police act more like a gang of thugs than like professionals who uphold a set of standards, they become untrustworthy, a force that neither serves nor protects.

Police made mistakes in G20 tactics, chief admits for first time

The corralling of 250 people at Queen and Spadina Streets for hours in torrential rain at the end of Toronto’s G20 summit remains a flashpoint in a weekend that saw the largest mass arrests in Canadian history.

In the face of an onslaught of complaints, lawsuits and inquiries, Toronto police Chief Bill Blair on Thursday acknowledged for the first time that he made mistakes that night.

Cdn 9/11 Gatekeeper Jonathan Kay attacks academic freedom

It seems that Mr. Kay believes his versions of controversial issues such as 9/11, vaccines and fluoride in drinking water should not be contradicted in classroom teachings, in particular, regardless of where the truth lies on any of these issues. There is only one correct version of these issues, according to Mr. Kay, and that's his version – which also happens to be the version of corporations with a vested interest in all of these issues.

In a previous Canadian Charger article, we pointed out that in researching his forthcoming book, Mr. Kay avoids evidence related to 9/11 and solely focuses on attacking the mental soundness of those academics and professors who've written papers disputing the official version of 9/11, even going so far as to call them delusional, although Mr. Kay has no psychiatric credentials whatsoever to be making such claims about anyone, let alone respected university professors. We also wondered – in that article – why a major newspaper such as the National Post would print such drivel.

Jonathan Kay Attacks a "Truther" to Introduce His Own Foxified Account of the 9/11 Attacks

Jonathan Kay has made it an issue of national news in The National Post that my graduate student, Joshua Blakeney, is the proud winner of the Queen Elizabeth II scholarship for academic excellence. This award will help Joshua in supporting his research for his MA thesis on the academic controversies surrounding the background, substance, and outgrowths of the events of September 11, 2001.

The Editor of The National Post was in a conflict of interest when he wrote the story on my graduate student's scholarship without revealing that Mr. Kay too has an externally-funded agenda of research and publication on 9/11. Moreover, Mr. Kay misrepresented my graduate student's thesis subject by planting the disinformation that "Washington did 9/11." The point of Mr. Blakeney's thesis, as we have discussed it so far, is to evaluate the academic literature on the contested events of 9/11, not to jump immediately to the needed outcome of an empirically-verifiable alternative to the current unsupported and unsupportable government conspiracy theory. Such a needed outcome will require much more than the forthcoming MA thesis by my gifted and hard working graduate student.

G20 cops cleared of brutality charges because they couldn't be identified

Lying on the ground, police moved in and arrested the delivery worker. That’s when one of the officers allegedly struck him in the face, causing a fracture.

The 19-year-old’s case is one of six from the June G20 summit that has been probed by Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit.

On Thursday, the agency announced no charges will be laid against police officers for injuries to civilians during the G20 protests.

In Latimer’s case, the agency interviewed nine witness officers from the Toronto Police Services as well a civilians. SIU director Ian Scott concluded that while there was “reasonable ground” to believe excessive force was used, they were unable to tell which officer caused his injuries.

Burton man charged for confronting prowlers

The men said they are not vigilantes but were trying to protect their homes and help a neighbour. RCMP Sgt. Pierre Gervais would not comment on the case because it is before the courts, but he did discourage people from acting as the Burton men did.

"If you're not in danger, or you can disengage and do it safely, call the police,' he said. "We'll answer those calls and we will take appropriate action."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They never have, not once, in all my long years of experience. The cops are NEVER there in time to prevent a crime; they just don't want citizens to defend themselves because then the citizens will realize they do not need the cops at all and fore the lot.

We have been calling the Honolulu police about a drug dealer in our immediate neighborhood for three years now. Nothing. Nada. Zip. The cops are too busy writing speeding tickets for the tourists because that generates revenue.

ISRAELI NAZISM (NOT ANTI-SEMITISM) IS THE REAL ISSUE

Independant Jewish Voices-Canada has released a new video:

It is a strong refutation of the legitimacy of the Canadian Parliamentary Coalition to Combat Antisemitism (CPCCA) meeting today and tomorrow. The Harper government has given then a $451,000 grant to advance repression against free speech that criticizes Israeli war crimes or Zionist ideology. The CPCCA is focused against the Palestinian human rights solidarity movement.

Harper on Israel: Is the Prime Minister mentally sound?

His dedication to that country supersedes his commitment to his own. That would be disturbing enough if Harper were merely a private citizen. But as prime minister it is beyond the pale and it isn't much of a stretch to suggest it borders on the betrayal of Canada and certainly Canadian interests. For what does it mean that Harper will defend Israel no matter the consequences for Canada?

Harper referred in his speech to "the anti-Israeli mob." I have to presume here that he is referring to all the Arab and Muslim countries which regularly criticize Israel at the UN. But, of course, not only them. UN resolutions criticizing Israel are regularly supported by virtually every country with the exception of Israel, the U.S. and -- sometimes -- El Salvador. Is the whole of the UN membership part of the "mob"?

Harper's disturbing performance sends a clear message: Canada is prepared to sacrifice relations with all other countries if it has to defend Israel. Coming off the rejection of Canada for a Security Council seat, Harper deems determined to islate himself even more, and Canada along with him.

Harper: Human rights are anti-Semitic?

The prime minister delivered a strongly worded warning about the resurgence of anti-Semitism in Canada and abroad. He said the persecution of Jews is becoming a global phenomenon in which anti-Semitic ideologies target the Jewish people in their “homeland” of Israel and uses the “language of human rights to do so.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unless the report misquoted Harper, it does sound like he just said that concern for human rights is anti-Semitic!

Tell me Mr. Harper, am I being an anti-Semite when I remind the world of Canada's Residential School scandal? Did you forget your own nation's history, or are you simply being less than truthful when you claim that human rights activists are only focused on Israel?

Canada Declares BPA Toxic. Why Isn’t the US Following Suit?

Why Isn't the FDA Taking Action Against BPA?

According to the FDA, its regulatory framework limits its ability to regulate BPA production.

That's right. Under its current construction, the FDA is unable to remove a toxic chemical that is leaching into canned goods and other common foods as we speak, because it was classified in 1963 as an indirect food additive and is listed among the 3,000 or so chemicals categorized as GRAS ("generally regarded as safe").

North American Union- The Road To A Global Climate Deal

Deep Integration and harmonization of laws, standards and policy between Canada, United States and Mexico is what is driving the North American Union agenda forward and is how they avoid Parliamentary scrutiny. We already have deep economic integration, security Integration and now they seek the integration of environmental law and promote the idea to redefine the meaning of national sovereignty to include what they call “sovereign duties”. Duties imposed on a sovereign nations that they will no longer have any control over unilaterally and are place under the jurisdiction of International law. A regulator to regulate the regulators as Paul Martin (former Prime Minister of Canada) likes to say.

This is a scam in progress! The big lie is that we need to harmonize and integrate, give up our sovereignty, and consolidate North America, in order to “save the planet” from the ravishes of climate change or to enjoy security and prosperity.

In a statement of claim filed in court on Sept. 29, Holly McDermott says she suffered multiple injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder in the alleged Jan. 16, 2009, incident at a McDonald's restaurant at 10305 80 Ave.

McDermott claims that after going to the fast food outlet for coffee at about 10:45 a.m., she went to use the ladies' washroom. Then, as she entered one of the toilet cubicles, "the door came off its hinges and fell on top of her."

As a result of allegedly being hit by the toilet stall door, McDermott claims she suffered injuries to her head, neck, upper back, left shoulder, arm and forearm, left leg, chest, left hand, index finger and right foot.

As well, she claims four of her ribs were fractured and she developed post-traumatic stress disorder.

Bisphenol A (BPA) officially declared toxic by Canada

Canada became the first country in the world yesterday to declare bisphenol A (BPA) to be a toxic substance that poses risks to human health and the environment.

The announcement by the Canadian Health and Environment Ministries confirmed the chemical had formally been added Schedule 1 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999).

"The Government of Canada has a strong record of taking action on Bisphenol A to protect the environment and health of Canadians," said Environment Minister Jim Prentice. "We are continuing our leadership on this issue and...working hard to monitor and manage Bisphenol A."

BPA is an industrial chemical used to make a hard, clear plastic such as re-usable polycarbonate baby bottles. It is also used in the manufacture of epoxy resins, which act as a protective lining on the inside of metal-based food and beverage cans.

GEORGE GALLOWAY FLIES TO TORONTO AFTER FEDERAL COURT DECISION

By James Clark — rabble.ca

Eighteen months ago, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Jason Kenney blocked then-British MP George Galloway from Canada, labeling him a terror supporter and a national security risk. At the time, Galloway was scheduled to appear in four Canadian cities on a speaking tour called “Resisting War: from Gaza to Afghanistan.”

This week, after Federal Court Justice Richard Mosley issued his 60-page decision on the matter, Galloway and his supporters were fully vindicated.

Prosecution drops charges against more of the G20 protesters, continues to persecute others

This latest about-face by the Crown constitutes an implicit admission of defeat; it shows how flimsy the charges are and how scandalously the police behaved during the security operations around the Summit. It is now clear that the mass arrests at the gymnasium, like the vast majority of the arrests during the Summit, were arbitrary and uncalled for, and were intended to terrorize the demonstrators and to discourage them from exercising their right to protest in the future.

In that vein, the CLAC would like to remind people that the Crown is persisting in its prosecution of 20 organizers that it is wrongly accusing of being the "ringleaders" behind the events of June 26th. There are two CLAC members amongst these scapegoats; they are facing three charges of conspiracy and are currently subject to draconian bail conditions including house arrest.

Was a prominent Canadian journalist fired for suggesting PM Steven Harper is a Straussian?

Did Leo Strauss Get Rick Salutin Fired?

Rick Salutin, recently of the Globe and Mail, was easily one of that papers most sophisticated and erudite columnists. He wrote with authority and conviction on a wide range of subjects. He “stuck out” at the Globe and Mail as he was clearly identified as left leaning, but then good newspapers have a mandate to publish a cross section of opinion. With the departure of Salutin the Globe and Mail has big shoes to fill on its opinion page.

In one of his last columns(Stephen Harper- the last Straussian?, Sept.18th 2010) Salutin suggested the prime minister was a Straussian. If you are a prime minister who has spent his political capital and lusts after one last run at a majority government the last thing you want is to be outed as a Straussian.

U.K. politician George Galloway flies to Toronto on Saturday after court decision

By these criteria, even though the application was ultimately dismissed, the ruling sides overwhelmingly with Galloway and his supporters. The government and its backers in the press may try to spin it as a defeat for Galloway, but they really have nothing to cheer about: the government's political interference has been exposed and condemned, the door is now open for Galloway to return to Canada this weekend, and the government's unfounded allegations against Galloway have been dismissed.

But the ruling also raises some very troubling questions.

The most alarming concern is the way in which the government continues to exploit Canada's so-called anti-terror legislation to stifle dissent. This is a long-standing criticism of Canada's post-9/11 restrictions on civil liberties. Legal experts have pointed to the vague and undefined language of anti-terror laws that allows for the broadest possible interpretations of "terrorism."

Toronto Judge ...Strikes Down Canada's Prostitution Laws

there are a few points i want to make
while prostitution IS legal in Canada some aspects are not legal (Like pimping is not legal)
another thing about about making prostitution illegal is like trying to make people stop drinking water it is the worlds oldest job, yet it is illegal almost everywhere in the US. In places that prostitution is legal it is safer, there are no pimps, everyone is tested for stds, and the prostitutes even pay taxes!

anyway thats my 2 cents, now heres the story

The court declared unconstitutional portions of the law banning brothels and soliciting for prostitution.

Three Toronto women launched the legal challenge in October 2009, arguing that prohibiting solicitation endangers prostitutes by forcing them to seek customers on street corners.

Minister Of Defense Peter MacKay Squanders Taxpayer Dollars In Hard Times

As Afghanistan is the graveyard of empires so too is it the graveyard of a hopelessly discredited NATO. So too is it the graveyard of defense ministers who are courtesans to the empire and who buy oversold war toys such as the F 35 that are totally inappropriate to our needs and hideously expensive in a time of economic austerity where economies are sagging and too many thousands are jobless.

Minister MacKay treats the Canadian electorate like local mushroom farmers treat their mushrooms; keep them in the dark and feed them bullshit.

He has spoken extensively at synagogues, [and is] very much a friend of the community.”

Stiffed with the bill: A private banquet at civil society's expense

In Journey to a Revolution, Michael Korda writes of the Hungarian Revolution:
"the general object of fascism was to stifle dissent, and bolster the existing establishment, while producing much drama in the way of rallies, parades, and propoganda, and the occasional foreign adventure to siphon off the energy of the lower middle class and the working class, who might otherwise have moved towards radical social reform."

The Olympics? The G8 and the G20? The Pan Am Games? Bread not circuses, anyone? In addition to ceaseless pageantry, Harper deliberately prorogued parliament a second time to enact a bill, more powerful than NAFTA to undercut our sovereignty, the Canada-European Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA). This far reaching bill will provide sub-national access to municipal services, and undermine the public sector even further, losing thousands of good, Canadian jobs to international outsourcing.

Put it together. Civil society is no longer is prioritized by our government, our country is being sold off to corporations and banks, enabled by a newly armed police state, and expanding prison system, and jobs in our public sector are about to be slashed for international corporations to profit through CETA. This is a Conservative agenda campaign, military in execution, orchestrated by Harper, against local economies and the right to self-determination. Provincially, McGuinty is designing his own policies through corporate gladhanding of governmental contracts

Ottawa asked to study fish in oilsands area

One whitefish has a golfball-sized tumour bulging from its side. Another is simply missing part of its spine, its tail growing from a stumpy rear end.

One has no snout. Another is coloured a lurid red instead of a healthy cream. Others are covered with lesions and still others are bent and crooked from deformed vertebrae.

All were taken from Lake Athabasca, downstream from the oilsands in northern Alberta, and were on display Thursday. All are reasons, say a group of scientists and aboriginals, for the federal government to conduct an independent study on what's happening to the Athabasca River and its watershed after decades of industry expansion.

Tightened muzzle on scientists is 'Orwellian'

Documents reveal federal researchers, whose work is financed by taxpayers, need approval from Ottawa before speaking with media.

The Harper government has tightened the muzzle on federal scientists, going so far as to control when and what they can say about floods at the end of the last ice age.

Natural Resources Canada (NRC) scientists were told this spring they need "pre-approval" from Minister Christian Paradis' office to speak with journalists. Their "media lines" also need ministerial approval, say documents obtained by Postmedia News through access-to-information legislation.

The documents say the "new" rules went into force in March and reveal how they apply to not only to contentious issues including the oilsands, but benign subjects such as floods that occurred 13,000 years ago.

British troops investigated for heroin smuggling

Military police are investigating claims that British soldiers may have trafficked heroin from Afghanistan.

The Ministry of Defence said they were aware of "unsubstantiated" claims that troops were using military aircraft to ship the drug out of the country.

The inquiry is focusing on British and Canadian service personnel at airports in Camp Bastion and Kandahar.

Hamas, don’t blow this chance

By Stuart Littlewood –

Can the resistance exploit the fake talks, re-position itself and finally “come good”?

Hamas “vows to step up attacks on Israel”, say reports in the western media.

Reading further, we learn that this escalation is either “a natural response to the crimes of the occupation” or a spiteful reaction to being left out of the talks.

Either way, Hamas surely knows better than to let such crude impressions be formed.

This is their golden opportunity. The eyes and ears of the world are focused on the Israel problem, and will re-focus every two weeks.

ALAN HART — Obama has signalled his coming complete surrender to Zionism and its lobby

He did it with seven words. “Ultimately the U.S. cannot impose a solution.”

The next question asks itself. Why won’t Obama be the president to call and hold the Zionist state to account for its crimes, even when doing so is necessary for the best protection of America’s own interests?

He was speaking at the White House the day before the start of the new round of direct talks between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, after he had met with them and Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak and Jordan’s King Abdullah II. (In my last post I anticipated Obama saying at the point of his complete surrender that “America can’t want peace more than the parties.” He also said that – ahead of schedule!)
