2. Context For This Piece

An awful lot of people criticize “ISLAMIC” influence in Canadian politics. And there is certainly reason to be worried. Creeping Sharia, prohibitions on criticizing Islam, and cultural practices that are incompatible with the West are being pushed. And there are of course, political movements to eventually take over.

However, what isn’t really discussed is the ZIONIST influence in Canadian politics. It’s there, and it’s just as bad as the push for Islam. Difference is, it’s more subtle, and the media is much more controlled on the subject.

A few things to point out.

This is a huge number of people being lobbied, and it doesn’t included repeat attempts.

Party leaders such as Justin Trudeau (Liberal), Andrew Scheer (Conservative), Jagmeet Singh (NDP), and Elizabeth May (Green) have all been lobbied as well. So was Gilles Duceppe, former BQ head. This cuts across party lines. Also, it includes — from the previous administration — Stephen Harper, Nigel Wright, Stockwell Day, Jason Kenney, Vic Toews, John Baird and Chuck Strahl.

Tom Mulcair was lobbied when the NDP was official opposition.

Can we drop any pretense that there is nothing wrong with this? This Jewish/Israeli group is lobbying huge numbers of politicians and their staff. They are trying to influence major parts of our government and society.

It’s all parties involved in this, and at all levels. No one’s hands are clean. It is an outright sell out of our country by Zionist shills.

While this is not exhaustive, let’s look at a few initiatives that the Center for Israel and Jewish Affairs has been up to

7. CIJA Is Anti-Free Speech

Weren’t people up in arms when Iqra Khalid pushes M103 (the blasphemy motion) through Parliament? This is even worse. Instead of some “non-binding” motion, it would actually criminalize what is considered hate speech.

Of course with this group, criticism of their BEHAVIOUR is often tagged as hate speech. So good luck getting that exception through.

8. CIJA Wants Media Regulation

The CRTC has recently made many recommendations, including forcing those in the media to get licenses. Understandably, the Minister, Steven Guilbeault, and the Federal Government are taking a lot of flak over this.

But something is missing from the discussion. Who’s behind it? Who’s pushing to make it mandatory for people in the media to be licensed. From their own lobbying information, CIJA is advocating for exactly that.

9. CIJA Supports Animal Cruelty

Do you support animal rights, as in the humane treatment of animals? Do you want animals killed for food to be treated without being tortured? Well, stop being a bigot. Kosher is something that CIJA is pushing.

Is it any different than halal food? Not really, but it’s anti-Semitic to criticize it.

10. CIJA Wants Holocaust Memorial

Want to have something burned into your brain for you had absolutely no role in doing? Do you want to feel endless white guilt? Now you can. CIJA wants the Holocaust Memorial to be preserved and protected to constantly remind people that they are victims.

11. CIJA Pressuring Ottawa On Durban II

CIJA is pressuring Canada regarding the Durban II conference, which it views as an attack on Israel itself. That is more than a little hypocritical, considering Israel conducts DNA testing to prove Judaism, and it was upheld as legal by the courts.

12. CIJA Controls Our Government

There will certainly be followups to this article, but know this: CIJA is lobbying politicians in all parties on a variety of topics. Indeed, it is an attack on Canadian sovereignty.

But good luck getting conservatives, or “Conservative Inc.” to address this assault on our country. They have little to no interest in addressing such matters.

13. Double Standard For ADL

Worth a look, as the ADL has the same double standard as CIJA when it comes to diversity and tolerance.

Furthermore, bi-nationalism is unworkable given current realities and historic animosities. With historically high birth rates among the Palestinians, and a possible influx of Palestinian refugees and their descendants now living around the world, Jews would quickly be a minority within a bi-national state, thus likely ending any semblance of equal representation and protections. In this situation, the Jewish population would be increasingly politically – and potentially physically – vulnerable.

It is unrealistic and unacceptable to expect the State of Israel to voluntarily subvert its own sovereign existence and nationalist identity and become a vulnerable minority within what was once its own territory.

But no objection to forcing OTHERS to become minorities in their lands.

Race To The Botton: The Who’s Who Of Globalism Stream

1. About The Stream: RTTB

Race To The Bottom is a stream that Andy and Fred host, with guest appearances. (Disclaimer: I’ve been on). The general area of discussion are the globalist connections, with an obvious emphasis on Canada. Some of the best researched content out there.

Learn about who is connected to whom, who is related to whom, and what nefarious links are there. It’s the kind of information the mainstream media won’t share, nor will the alternative media. The spiderweb is a tangled mess.

The streams generally run about 2 to 3 hours at a time, and are on once or twice a week. Consider it a documentary, only better, since there are no “off-limits” topics of discussion.

2. Streams To Go Watch

(Guest appearance by Maiden Liberty)

Oh heck. Go watch them all.

3. Do Not Troll Fred On Twitter

Whatever you do, please don’t troll Fred on Twitter.
Please do not look up @menckinF
Please don’t go fill his timeline with snarky remarks
Please don’t start a 3 day Twitter war
Okay, never mind. Go nuts.

Join The Nationalist Parody Canuck (NPC) Party

We are at a critical junction in Canadian politics. Some hard choices need to be made in the coming years. Indeed, this election, and the next few, will shape Canada for generations to come.

Take a look at some of our policies. I think you will agree that we are far more open and transparent than other parties are today.

To our American followers, similar efforts are being started up in your country.

1. Eliminate the deficit

Currently our government is overspending. This is a problem that happens year after year, and something must be done about it. The NPC Party is committed to fixing that with our fiscally sound approach. Canadians deserve better than what they have had all these years.

Remember, an NPC Government will take care to focus on the symptoms (deficit spending, debt), and away from the disease (Bank for International Settlements). Our party is committed to balancing the budget, and never going into deficit. We don’t need to get into the international usury and loss of our sovereignty. What is important is our commitment to eliminating the deficit — at some point.

2. Ending Corporate Welfare

The sun is setting on our game to enrich corporations using taxpayer dollars. Frankly, it’s surprising that it lasted as long as it has. However, our Party will stop using taxpayer money for your private gains. Or at least, we will make it harder to trace.

To all of our corporate backers, don’t fret. The NPC Party will see to it that Canadians are focused on a symptom (the money being wasted), and not on the disease (the underlying corruption). No one needs to know that your wife or uncle sits as a Director on a corporation that you paid $200M to. No one needs to know about the corporate or consulting gig you have lined up after your stint in politics.

3. Protect Free Speech

The NPC Party is committed to protecting free speech for all Canadians. As such, part of our goal will be to ensure a wide variety of voices and groups are available to participate in the public space. We’ll bring in millions more people if need be.

After all, importing large numbers of people from countries where free speech is not the norm won’t lead to demographic shifts, and cultural changes which will erode free speech. But if it does, we will be sure to blame Liberals and media bias. As a fallback, we can again pledge to defund the CBC.

4. Protect Gun Rights

The NPC Party is strongly committed to protecting law biding gun owners from harassment by authorities. Yes, we’ll slip something in the fine print to make gun ownership MORE of a headache. But what is important is what we claim to do. At the same time, we are committed to mass migration from countries where gun control is a real problem. But these things have nothing to do with each other.

Sure, we can blame it on the media, or Liberals, or of cultural changes in general. Don’t worry, we can actually do all three. But we’ll be sure not to mention that we have allowed millions of people to immigrate from countries where gun rights are non-existent. We will ensure that no one sees the connection between demographic changes and policy changes.

5. Reproductive Rights

The Nationalist Parody Canuck Party is committed to keeping abortion safe and legal, and will not reopen the debate. Sure, those cuck-parties won’t take a stand, but please don’t ask where WE stand on the issue. To ensure we aren’t considered bigots, we will use neutral language like “fetus”, instead of “baby” or “child”. Words do matter.

Our party will ensure that the public is focused on the symptom (ensuring women’s right to choose) and away from the diseases (black market organ sales, depressing the birthrate, or infanticide). Unnecessary topics don’t need to be scrutinized. You can depend on our government to deliver.

6. High Quality Education

Sure, it’s a provincial matter, but let’s weigh in on it. True, it seems wasteful to spend 3-6 years and $50,000+ on some worthless degree. However, we believe in personal responsibility and growth. Of course, these beliefs have nothing to do with union money that is funnelled to our members annually. If dimwitted students are paying to be indoctrinated with Marxist propaganda and social justice, who are we to interfere? After all, it’s only the tax payers who are guaranteeing the student loans.

To those worried about your jobs, don’t fret. Our Party will ensure that Canadians are looking at the symptoms (the nonsense of cultural Marxism), and not at the disease (the groups pushing cultural Marxism, and their motives). With our concentrated efforts, your parasitic institutions will be safe from any real scrutiny.

7. Sensible Immigration

We recognize that mass migration is a serious issue. Yes, we support the eventual genocide of the nation’s founders, but let’s not make it too obvious. As such, we propose a 5-7% reduction on immigration, while we continue to increase student visas, and temporary work permits. By appearing to address the issue, we will be miles ahead of the competition.

To those wishing to come to Canada, don’t be alarmed. Our attention will be on a symptom (one specific immigration program), and not on the disease (the replacement agenda). The NPC Party will ensure that we APPEAR to be tackling immigration, while ensuring the status quo remains in place. Perhaps we’ll pitch some “populist” lingo to dupe the voters. After all, if European nations want some semblance of stability, they’re just being racist.

8. Opposing Sharia law

Sharia Law is incompatible with Canadian law. As such, the NPC Party will ban Sharia Law from Canada, should we be elected. Certainly, we still support mass Islamic immigration into Canada. And sure, the vast majority of Muslims support Sharia Law. But Canadians can count on our party standing up for Canadian values. And it’s not like demographics shift over time, or anything like that.

Canadians must hear about the symptom (radical Islam itself), and not the disease (the groups pushing for Islamic expansion). Our party will ensure that the symptoms are burned into the consciousness of the Canadian public.

9. Freedom In Your Private Life

The NPC Party is committed to remaining out of your private life. As long as you are a law-biding citizen, and you pay your taxes, it is not our place to judge various lifestyle choices.

It’s a no brainer that the decline of society will be felt with this individualistic stance. As usual, however, you can trust in our party to deliver. Over and over we will emphasise the symptoms, (degeneracy, pornography, prostitution, drug use, globohomo, drag queen story hour, etc…) while avoiding the disease (the groups pushing and profiting from this decline). As long as we focus on individual choice — and an eye towards the consequences — society will overlook just how organized it really is.

Focus on the puppet, not the puppet-master, we say.

10. Climate Change Alarmism

Yes, climate change alarmism is a problem which a serious government must address. Notice how we refer to it as “alarmism” and not as a “scam”. The reason is simple, if we call it a scam, Canadians will expect us to take more decisive action. Language matters. Sure, eliminating carbon dioxide will end life on Earth as we know it, but let’s keep it to ourselves.

Canadians should be preoccupied with the symptoms (wasteful carbon taxes), and not on the disease (the players, the predatory UN loans and climate bonds industry). As always, you can trust our party to deliver results to you and your family.

11. Globalized Trade

The NPC party is committed to signing trade deals with as many nations as possible. Granted, many engage in currency manipulation. Granted, 3rd world nations can completely undercut Canadian manufacturers. But look at the stock prices and economic growth that will happen as a result.

As usual, Canadians can trust our party to focus on the symptoms (job losses, unemployment, lower wages), and not the disease (the free trade deals that cause it). With our help, these schmucks will never know that these policies we sign directly gut their futures and communities.

12. We Want To Rule

This political movement needs to be more than just irony or trolling. We need serious people to discuss serious issues. And (within the scope of permitted debate), we need to have a real debate on these issues.

The Nationalist Parody Canuck Party is that way forward. Put your trust in us to deliver the government that Canadians deserve. We will discuss all of the symptoms that other parties won’t, while continuing to ignore the underlying diseases.

Sure, our party has no constitution of governing documents, but that would just make it harder to shut it down when the time comes. And are leadership votes and policy votes really that important? We guarantee that we will discuss symptoms all the time.

To put it simply, “We want to rule!”

How To Do Your Own Research, Investigative Journalism

1. Media Bias And Corruption

CLICK HERE, for Global News’ selective truth on TRP granted.
CLICK HERE, for Post Media owning most Canadian media.
CLICK HERE, for Atlas/Koch controlling right-leaning media.
CLICK HERE, for True North Canada is a fake charity.
CLICK HERE, for who runs The Post Millennial.

2. Why People Should Care About This

To anyone looking to get into citizen journalism, or otherwise expose the truth about our world, here are some basic tips on how to do so. This is a how-to article on those potential online sleuths.

Topics such as: the true scale of immigration into Canada; demographic replacement; loss of Christian roots; the loss of culture and heritage in favour of “multiculturalism”; the costs of globalized trade; globohomo; Islam; the people spreading Islam; the international banking cartel (BIS); the scale of debts; pension ponzi schemes; border security; forced multiculturalism; corruption in politics; internationalism; widespread human right abuses; trafficking; and a host of other issues are swept away. They are given little to no attention.

The goals of MSM, generally are:

  • (a) To only tell part of the story
  • (b) To divert your attention from another story
  • (c) Both (a) and (b)

Unfortunately, our media is full of grifters and shills with an agenda. Almost the entire mainstream media is controlled by one outlet: Post Media. Even the so-called “alternative media” can’t be relied on to be truthful. The Post Millennial, True North Canada, Spencer Fernando, and Rebel Media are among the “independents” with an agenda. What Canada needs, (and the world at large) needs, is people willing to take the plunge and research for themselves.

While commentators — online pundits — are a dime a dozen, true researchers are rare. Any Tom, Dick or Harry can give their opinion on someone else’s work. The real challenge is creating the original work. Right, no bias here.

Yes, some of the techniques will seem painfully obvious, but are worth going through. Note: there are no shortcuts in this line of work. It’s just patience, perseverance, and luck. Red pill yourself, and share your findings with the world.

If even one reader of the article decides to pursue this path, then it is all worthwhile.

3. Tip: Save & Archive Evidence

Taking screenshots of the proof you have is always a great idea. As a picture, it speaks for itself, and demonstrates what you want to show. Also, it doubles as a powerful form of evidence, should you ever get challenged on your work.

A secondary option is to archive the entire webpage you are quoting from. One such option is http://archive.is, which is shown above. There are a few reasons. First, you may get questioned about the authenticity of your work, even the screenshots. But as a practical matter, a few years later, the website may not exist, or the URL may have changed. Best to keep a backup handy. Admittedly this can be tedious, but beats having your sources disappear.

Now, let’s get into some actual techniques.

4. Look Using Simple Search Engines

This is a no-brainer to many. See what others have published on the subject. It may save you from having to reinvent a thousand wheels if you come across an article. Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, etc… will all suffice. If nothing else, it will be a good place to start, and you may hit gold. Make sure to check the links and references put in whatever you find. (Please give the original author credit for their work).

The other techniques are not universally applicable, but use them according to the particular circumstances of your research. Here they are, in no particular order.

5. Look Up Directors, Executives

Yes, you can look up information on a particular company. There are various ways to do that. A simpler approach may be just to see who RUNS the company, and if they have any interesting connections. In this case, we see that Pierre Beaudoin, the Chairman of Bombardier is also a Director at Power Corporation, owned by the Desmarais Family. One might wonder if this is the reason (or a reason), that we keep using taxpayer money to bail out Bombardier.

6. Look Up Data From Website

Items such as annual financial statements, people joining the company, or major announcements may be posted on the organization website. And this does not only apply to corporations.

For example, McGill University announced a $200M gift from John McCall MacBain. He is a Trudeau Lobbyist, a member of the Trudeau Foundation, and head of the McCall MacBain Foundation.

The McGill website also shows that the Attorney General of Canada, David Lametti, is a member of the Faculty of Law, currently on leave. All of this information was provided by McGill.

One would have to wonder if that $200M donation is the reason Lametti ensured that SNC Lavalin got its deferred prosecution agreement.

7. Corporations Canada Website

If you want to know more about a business or non-profit, Corporations Canada can help with that. You can obtain information on the Directors, by-laws, registered office, or confirm that returns have been filed. Several years worth of data is available for free. You make the application, and within minutes, are emailed a series of attachments to download.

Some information can be obtained for free. Other data will involve paying fees. The choice is up to you.

Note: Obviously this applies to companies registered in Canada. The United States, and many other nations have similar options.

8. Charities And Other Donees

If you are looking into a charity, or a group that falls into some other categories, the Canada Revenue Agency may be of use. Basic information can be obtained, including the Directors, the use of the charity, the revenue, and recent changes. It was a help finding out where True North Center actually originated from.

9. LinkedIn, Other Social Media

Yes, people put stupid stuff online. It doesn’t have to be smoking pot, or topless photos in order to be helpful. For example, should you want to look into someone such as the CEO for an apparently independent media outlet, you can see what other organizations the person is connected to.

Furthermore, even if such accounts are altered or deleted, there is typically a copy or a partial copy somewhere. So don’t despair.

Now, to get into the more legal and/or political matters, the next few tricks will help immensely. While it is directed at Federal matters, the same principles apply Provincially and Municipally.

10. Check Campaign Contributions

While donating (within the limits) to political parties and politicians is allowed, it does create a nice paper trail. As such, you may be able to see who has donated to whom, how much, and how often. Of course, this doesn’t work when donations are given in cash under the table.

It should be pointed out, that some provinces (like Ontario) allow 3rd party donations. Essentially, that is an almost unlimited amount that is funnelled through an intermediary. Worth looking into. You want to know who the politician really serves.

Spoiler: it’s not you.

11. Check Lobbying Commissioner’s Office

Influence peddling can be a full time business for lobbyists. So, let’s see who they have been meeting with. One such case is SNC Lavalin lobbying pretty much everyone for its DPA over the last few years. It can be truly disgusting to see just how deep some of this goes. Naturally, why would companies spend all this money on lobbyists unless they got results?

Go through the site for a while. The amount of lobbying that goes on in government is absolutely sickening. Keeps lobbyists employed though.

12. Check Out Old/New Legislation

Want to know what is actually written in a bill? Original filings, as well as amended bills are available to the public. For bills that are passed or defeated, the voting records of all Members of Parliament is recorded as well. To reiterate, though this piece focuses on Federal issues, the same applies Provincially.

Don’t trust the media’s interpretation of what a particular piece of legislation says. Go check it out for yourself. To quote Reagan: trust, but verify.

13. Other Parliamentary Studies/Reports

CLICK ON PARLIAMENTARY BUSINESS.

It isn’t just the bills themselves that go on. The MPs study the issues when they aren’t busy grandstanding. As such, hearings take place, and witnesses are often called to testify. This concerns issues such as letting fake refugees into Canada, and Conservatives endorsing the UN Parliament. Indeed, a lot more detail can be found here than in the hearings and votes. Entire transcripts of hearings can be downloaded or copied.

Also, please be aware, that archived documents can be found here. More and more is being scanned electronically and posted for all to see.

14. United Nations Search Engine

Want to know what is going on with UN globalism? Just go on the UN website and search. Although it’s fairly easy to navigate, there is the search function is you can’t find something. For example, typing “Islamophobia” nets about 600 results. Although there is a private access for members, most of what you need is open to the public.

15. CanLII, Court Searches

The good news is that major cases are listed. These include the Supreme Court of Canada, and Provincial Appellate Courts. Trial rulings “may” be listed if there is something particularly interesting or helpful, or if they are high profile. It covers criminal, civil, family, human rights tribunals, Law Society rulings, law review articles, and often motions. If one wants to self-represent in court, information available can be useful.

Bad news, is that the amount of information can be overwhelming. So many cases, and so many similar terms means that imprecise searches flood the user with useless hits. Even with the lower rulings usually not posted, the amount of information is mind boggling.

If you actually are looking for a court case, it’s a good tool. Otherwise, it’s not helpful in background information. An alternative (if you know what case you are looking for) is to contact the court and ask for certain documents.

16. Libraries Or Other Archives

Don’t knock it. If you have a large or older library in your town, or can get to one, you might be surprised what you can dig up. Often, older information is available in printed form that has not yet been digitized.

17. Access To Information Requests

In most areas of government bureaucracy, there exists the option to file a formal request for information on certain topics. And it can be done across many departments.

While seemingly a quick and easy way to get answers, let’s mention a few disclaimers. First, the requests often take a long time, sometimes months to get back. Second, the government may withhold all or part claiming “public interest” or “confidentiality”. Third, there are often fees involved. Still, it can be an option to consider.

18. Interview The Subject

This is also known as “being a journalist”. You ask a person questions in the hopes of getting information. Not everyone will say yes, but if you never ask the answer will always be no.

Question: do you let the person know who you really are, and if you are recording? Ideally, you should, but it depends on the circumstances. Having done a few sneaky ones myself, it would be hypocritical to pass judgement.

One piece of advice: it may be better to talk to the person AFTER you have done other forms of searching. This is so that you are more fully aware of your facts prior to meeting.

19. What Have I done?

Everything listed above, depending on the circumstances and what exactly I was looking for. All of these techniques were used at some point in writing the articles. However, there is no one answer for everything.

20. What May Not Be Needed

Of course, this will depend on the people involved, and what information is being sought. Here are a few techniques I don’t engage in, but that others have.

  • Ambush journalism
  • Stalking, following subjects
  • Trying to get to family members
  • Dumpster diving
  • Trespassing, B&E

It is possible to get real results and real information without crossing ethical and legal lines. Suggestion: try not to cross lines where possible.

2. Some Context For This Article

Canadians, and people in general, need to know what is going on in the world around them.

With all of the shoddy and corrupt journalism that goes on, it is important to know if a media outlet is pushing a particular agenda. It’s also necessary to see what allegiances the outlet has, and is it what it claims to be? Post Media Corp controls most of the media in Canada, and has a virtual stranglehold on “conservative” media. This applies not only to MSM content, but to the alternative media as well. Many “conservative” talking heads have ties to Koch/Atlas and other globalist groups.

The last piece covered TRUE NORTH CANADA, consisting of a renamed/repurposed charity and a non-profit that Candice Malcolm “founded”. Very deceptive to the readers, especially given that TNC sold itself as independent journalism and research, focusing on immigration.

Now we get to THE POST MILLENNIAL. Who is behind it, and what exactly are they pushing? The public might be interested in knowing some answers.

3. Matthew Azrieli Is David Azrieli’s Grandson

Matthew Azrieli Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of The Post Millennial, according to his LinkedIn page. However, according to his profile, he holds another job at the same time. He is the Chief Operations Officer of VIVA!DIVA! CAN INC.

Sharon Azrieli, daughter of media giant, David Azrieli, is a Director of VIVA!DIVA! CAN INC., which Matthew Azrieli claims to be managing as well. Is she Matthew’s mother? Is David his grandfather? Well, actually, yes he is.

Just check out David Azrieli’s profile page on the Azrieli Foundation website. It lists who his children and grandchildren are.

Beloved husband of Stephanie Lefcort for 57 years, loving father, father-in-law and grandfather of Rafi Azrieli; Sharon Azrieli Perez, Avi Perez, Matthew and Solomon Azrieli; Naomi Azrieli, François Blanc, Joseph, Gabriel and Madeleine; Danna Azrieli, Danny Hakim, Galia and Ella. David will be truly missed by all of us who loved him so dearly.

Interesting note: Matthew Azrieli lists 2 organizations (along with details), on his LinkedIn page. Here is the quote from both of them.

America-Israel Cultural Foundation
organization date
Sep 2017 – Present
organization position
Board Member
organization description
The mission of the America-Israel Cultural Foundation is to support and develop artistic life in Israel by awarding grants. By encouraging Israeli artists and supporting institutions and programs, AICF makes a vital contribution to the cultural foundation of Israel and strengthens her relationship with the United States.
.
Since 1939, AICF has played a leading role in the development of Israel’s arts and culture. Due to its early support for nearly all of Israel’s largest institutions and its reputation for nourishing the finest artists, the name AICF has become synonymous with culture in Israel. With nearly 18,000 artists impacted by our efforts over our 78-year history, the results are nothing short of remarkable:
Over $160 million has been disbursed by AICF to benefit Israeli culture since 1939
Over 400 young artists receive support each year
Nearly every notable AICF recipient credits AICF’s recognition as a significant factor in their success
AICF alumni are represented globally in nearly every top ballet and modern dance company; museum and gallery; operatic, theatrical, and symphonic stage; and film festival.

Israel Bonds
organization date
Jan 2017 – Present
organization position
Board Member – New Leadership Division
organization description
Praised for consistency and dependability, the Bonds organization has helped build every sector of Israel’s economy.
.
Facilitating investment in Israel through the sale of Israel bonds is global in scope. Worldwide sales since the first bonds were issued in 1951 are now approaching $40 billion.
.
Proceeds from the sale of Israel bonds have played a decisive role in Israel’s rapid evolution into a groundbreaking, globally emulated leader in high-tech, cleantech and biotechnology. Today, the purchase of Israel bonds supports a technological superpower continually pushing the boundaries of innovation, with extraordinary implications reaching far beyond the nation’s borders.
.
Member FINRA
https://www.facebook.com/IsraelBondsNewLeadership/

So the head of the “alternative media” Post Millennial outfit is Matthew Azrieli, the grandson David Azrieli, the billionaire and Israeli media tycoon. Good to see some real opposition to the status quo here in Canada.

Now, let’s take a look at the 2 foundations which Matthew Azrieli is a board member of.

4. America-Israel Cultural Foundation

One group that Azrieli is a board member of, but doesn’t list on his Post Millennial biography, is the America-Isreal Cultural Foundation. One would think that a CEO of a “Canadian” media outlet would be interested in Canadian culture, but it seems not.

5. Israel Bonds

Take a look at the National Directors. While Azrieli is supposedly the CEO of a media organization for Canadian news, he is also a board member of an organization promoting sales of bonds to boost Israel. Funny, he doesn’t mention that conflict of interest either.

6. Jeff Ballingall: Navigator, Can-Proud, Ontario Proud, Erin O’Toole Operative

On the “ABOUT” page, Ballingall is listed as being the Chief Marketing Officer, and specializes in user growth, advertising, and digital media distribution. This sounds harmless enough, but Jeff omits very relevant parts of his past on his TPM biography.

Creator of popular conservative Ontario Proud page joins Erin O’Toole campaign team
.
Jeff Ballingall has made a name for himself over the past few years in pioneering the use of Facebook to spread conservative messaging

Ballingall was also part of the public effort to oust Andrew Scheer as leader after the 2019 election, creating a group called “Conservative Victory” with fellow Conservatives Kory Teneycke and John Reynolds. “When a political leader fails, they resign,” the group’s website said.

In a 2019 Toronto Life interview, Ballingall said he was working at crisis communications firm Navigator when he came up with the plan for Ontario Proud, largely to fight back against the anti-conservative ad campaigns often run by labour unions. He figured nobody was effectively using Facebook to organize a third-party campaign. “The ecosystem was changing,” he told the magazine.

In the past two days, O’Toole has featured prominently on sites run by Ballingall. On Wednesday, both the Ontario Proud and Canada Proud pages posted a 15-second video created by O’Toole to thank Canadian energy workers for keeping homes heated during a cold snap.

The next day, both Canada Proud and Ontario Proud posted flattering quotes about O’Toole from a Toronto Sun article discussing all of the candidates. They then shared a Post Millennial article on leadership candidate Peter MacKay being attacked by Conservative MP Scott Reid, and then another Post Millennial article praising O’Toole’s “toughness” on criminal justice policy. Finally they posted a joint video profile of O’Toole and fellow MP Pierre Poilievre, and promised further profiles would be coming on other candidates.

Ballingall was working at the “crisis communications” firm called Navigator, when he came up with the idea of Ontario Proud. In essence, it would be for pushback against ideas than ran contrary to the Conservative Inc. doctrine that his people wanted to push. He is also involved in a Federal counterpart.

Nothing nefarious about having political beliefs. However, the fact that Ballingall is a “crisis communicator” by profession, and a conservative partisan, greatly reduces the chances that he is involved in unbiased journalism.

The grandson of an Israeli media tycoon and billionaire (Azrieli), and a professional mouthpiece (Ballingall), team up to run independent media. But let’s see what the story is on some of the other players.

7. 3rd Party Donors, Ontario Proud

Donor Name Amount Given

There are other donors, but this should prove the point. Ontario Proud, Jeff Ballingall’s organization, was heavily involved in the 2018 election, trying to get Doug Ford elected. See this piece from Canadaland.

Why should Ballingall be taken seriously in any journalistic sense? He is little more than a political fundraiser and mouthpiece.

8. Yaakov Pollak: “Elect Conservatives” Strategist

Conservatism at its core is about a deep understanding of tradition, economics, and ultimately realistic choices. We believe that way forward is through personal responsibility and ultimately a society which those of us who work hard can succeed.
.
We believe that Canada also has a culture that is deeply worth protecting. We accept per capita more immigrants than any other country and have done so with far fewer problems.
.
That has occurred for generations due to Canadian culture.
.
We lastly believe that a nation is meant to become strong. The Canadian government must therefore also build towards meeting the protection requirements for all citizens.
.
We promote these core values and hope that with your help we can make them everyday values at the election box.

I bet this group doesn’t feel the same way towards Israel. Letting in tons of immigrants (more per capita than any other nation), doesn’t do anything to protect your culture. He comes across as another Ben Shapiro, speaking out both sides of his mouth.

More diversity and migrants for thee.
Less diversity and migrants for me.
But I digress.

9. Barrett Wilson: Who Is That?

Barrett Wilson is apparently a pen name for one of their senior editors. There is vague information about being a social justice warrior until the crowd turned.

In fairness, work here is done anonymously. It seems strange to happen on a “more legit” site though.

10. Spencer Fernando: Nat’l Citizens Coalition

Mentioned before, but worth repeating. An author for the Post Millennial is Spencer Fernando, a fellow at the lobbying firm National Citizens Coalition. Of course, this was Stephen Harper’s old organization.

11. Recycled Post Media Writers

While getting a variety of voices is always a nice thing to have, it seems that many of the authors who contribute have all been writing for various Post Media outlets. Not very independent when it is a lot of the same people from the mainstream media.

12. TPM On Journalistic Integrity

Conflict of Interests
The Post Millennial’s staff is dedicated to maintaining the newspaper’s credibility and integrity and, thus, has pledged against engaging in conflicts of interests which may compromise such maintenance. All staff are expected to report to senior staff members well before engaging in such actions. Disciplinary action may follow a conflict of interest.

Certainly being dedicated to upholding standards of accuracy and truthfulness are important. However, this statement reads like it was cut and pasted from several sources. Also, given the openly political activities the group engages in, what exactly are they doing to prevent any conflict of interest from taking place?

This outfit is actually more sleazy than True North Canada, and that is saying a lot.

The True Origins Of Candice Malcolm’s True North Canada


(This “charity” was originally called the Independent Immigration Aid Association. The goal was to help settle British immigrants into BC. It was acquired by Malcolm, renamed, and used for tax purposes for her media company.)

From “About Us” On Website

True North Centre for Public Policy (True North Centre) is a registered Canadian charity, independent and non-partisan. We conduct policy research on immigration and integration issues and provide timely investigative journalism on issues that affect Canada’s national security.
.
The True North Initiative is a not-for-profit advocacy organization that raises awareness around immigration and integration issues and advances Western democratic values.
.
Together, these organizations form True North Canada.

Interesting. On its own website, True North Canada claims to be about conducting policy research on immigration and integration issues.

However, in tax filings True North Centre for Public Policy (which claims to be a charity) says the organization is about relieving poverty. It also claims to be helping UK immigrants settle into BC.

The reason for this discrepancy is that the Independent Immigration Aid Association (I.I.A.A.) that was founded in 1994 was taken over by Candice Malcolm. It was renamed as TRUE NORTH CENTRE FOR PUBLIC POLICY. An interesting point to raise: why take it over? Why not just start a brand new organization?

It could be to continue the tax benefits that come with being a registered charity, which True North Center still officially is.

9. Koch/Atlas Network, Canadian Partners

  • Alberta Institute
  • Canadian Constitution Foundation
  • Canadian Taxpayers Federation
  • Canadians For Democracy And Transparency
  • Fraser Institute
  • Frontier Center For Public Policy
  • Institute For Liberal Studies
  • Justice Center For Constitutional Freedoms
  • MacDonald-Laurier Institute For Public Policy
  • Manning Center
  • Montreal Economic Institute
  • World Taxpayers Federation

These “think tanks” all promote the same things: economic libertarianism; mass economic immigration; liberal or free trade; less government; larger role for private sector. Now, let’s connect some dots.

Spoiler alert: you will notice that none of the connections you are about to be shown actually appear in True North Canada’s public information. Almost like they didn’t want the public to know.

10. Candice Malcolm’s Ties To Koch/Atlas

Candice worked for Koch and the Fraser Institute, before getting into journalism. She now runs True North Initiative, which “identifies” as a non-profit group. Of course, there is also True North Center, which “identifies” as a charity.

This was a November 2014 Atlas gettogether to complete “THINK TANK LEADERSHIP TRAINING”, whatever that means. Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation rep, Candice Malcolm was there.

At this 2014 dinner, Malcolm was a member of the Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation. Yes, one of Atlas’ Canadian partners.

Malcolm leaves out any trace of her Atlas past in the TNC website. Not very candid, is it? Malcolm also omits being a political staffer, for Jason Kenney, who “enriched” the GTA as Immigration Minister, and who wants to enrich Rural Alberta now.

11. Kasra Nejatian’s Ties To Koch/Atlas

Interesting side note: Kasra Nejatian (a.k.a. Kasra Levinson) is Candice Malcolm’s husband. He is a Director at the Canadian Constitution Foundation, which is also part of Atlas Network. He’s part of the CCF, and she was part of Fraser and Koch Institute.

Interesting omission on the TNC site: not only does Candice not mention that Kasra — her husband — is a Director of a Koch group (CCF), she omits that he is a Director at True North Center, the “charity” branch of True North Canada.

There’s no information about this on the website. In fact, one would have to search Revenue Canada’s records in order to find this out. The TNC site doesn’t even say that THERE ARE any Directors.

Worth pointing out, Nejatian was also a staffer, for Jason Kenney, former Federal Immigration Minister, and current Alberta Premier.

12. William McBeath’s Ties To Koch/Atlas

One of the Directors for True North’s “charity” wing is William McBeath, who used to work for the Manning Center. Again, one would have to look at the Revenue Canada website to get this information, as it is not available on TNC.news.

Interestingly, he has also held party roles with both the Alberta and Federal Conservatives. Again, no mention of this on the TNC.news website. You need to check outside information.

13. Andrew Lawton, Ontario PC Candidate

True North admits that one of their fellows, Andrew Lawton, was a candidate in the 2018 Ontario Provincial election for the Progressive Conservative Party. A refreshing bit of candour considering what they leave out.

Nothing inherently wrong with journalists getting into politics, or politicians getting into journalism. However, being so recent, it should be noted the biases and beliefs Lawton will bring to the role.

14. Charity V.S. Non-Profit: CRA

few supplies made by NPOs are exempt

Given how Revenue Canada distinguishes between charities and non-profits, this may be why Candice Malcolm took over Independent Immigration Aid Association and renamed it to True North Center for Public Policy. They likely wouldn’t be able to obtain charity status on their own. Therefore, taking an existing charity might have been an easier bet.

While True North does do decent work, there is nothing to indicate that it deserves special status, or should be registered as a charity. Otherwise, virtually any media would qualify.

Seriously, what else is the reason for acquiring the Independent Immigration Aid Association? It’s not like Malcolm, Nejatian, or any of the others wish to preserve their legacy. In fact, without looking any deeper into the topic, one would never know about it.

So did Malcolm found True North Initiative? In a deceptively technical sense, yes. The “non-profit” branch of True North Canada came from her. However, the “charity” portion which makes the organization eligible for tax perks was founded in 1994 by a completely different group of people. A lie of omission.

15. What Exactly Is True North Canada?

Press Progress picked up on the inconsistencies in Malcolm’s ever-changing description of True North Canada. So let’s go through some of them.

True North is simultaneously a media company, an advocacy group, a registered charity, and “it’s complicated“.

Could be that Malcolm wants to keep the tax breaks that come with the current structure. That could be why she “founded” True North Initiative (a non-profit), yet the True North Center for Public Policy (a charity) was a rebranded one from 1994.

Now, for a semi-related, but interesting ruling from the Federal Court of Canada.

16. Federal Court Ruling: T-1633-19

Recently, True North and Rebel Media won court cases which overturned (on an interlocutory basis) the decisions of the Elections Commissioner to restrict them from covering Federal debates in the 2019 election. This is an interesting side note to the story.

Worth stating at the front: although there were a few different names to choose from, Malcolm et al chose to use True North Center for Public Policy (the charity), for the court case.

Well, yes. They do engage in advocacy. It says so right on their website. While this may come across as pedantic, they are not wrong about this. However, things are not that simple.

The Test for the Requested Relief
[24] The test the Court must apply when asked to issue a mandatory interlocutory injunction is set out by the Supreme Court of Canada in R v Canadian Broadcasting Corp, 2018 SCC 5 [CBC] at para 18:
In sum, to obtain a mandatory interlocutory injunction, an applicant must meet a modified RJR — MacDonald test, which proceeds as follows:
(1) The applicant must demonstrate a strong prima facie case that it will succeed at trial. This entails showing a strong likelihood on the law and the evidence presented that, at trial, the applicant will be ultimately successful in proving the allegations set out in the originating notice;
(2) The applicant must demonstrate that irreparable harm will result if the relief is not granted; and
(3) The applicant must show that the balance of convenience favours granting the injunction. [emphasis in original]

[25] The Applicants bear the burden of proving to the Court on a balance of probabilities that they have met all three prongs of the tri-partite test. This Court observed in The Regents of University of California v I-Med Pharma Inc, 2016 FC 606 at para 27, aff’d 2017 FCA 8 that “[t]hese factors are interrelated and should not be assessed in isolation (Movel Restaurants Ltd v EAT at Le Marché Inc, [1994] FCJ No 1950 (Fed TD) at para 9, citing Turbo Resources Ltd v Petro Canada Inc (1989), 24 CPR (3d) 1 (FCA)).”

[26] The Order the Applicants seek is both extraordinary and discretionary. Given its discretionary nature, provided the tri-partite test has been met, the “fundamental question is whether the granting of an injunction is just and equitable in all of the circumstances of the case:” Google Inc v Equustek Solutions Inc, 2017 SCC 34 at para 25.

[37] There is also evidence in the record that some of the accredited news organizations have previously endorsed specific candidates and parties in general elections. The Commission responds that in those cases the advocacy was in editorials or produced by columnists. This begs the question as to where one draws the line as to what is and is not advocacy that disqualifies an applicant from accreditation. This goes to the lack of rationality and logic in the no-advocacy requirement.

This is a valid point. Most media outlets engage in some level of advocacy. So to disallow 1 or 2 outlets would be hypocritical.

[38] This also goes to the lack of transparency. Absent any explanation as to the meaning to be given to the term “advocacy” and given that the Commission accredited some organizations that have engaged in advocacy, I am at a loss to understand why the Commission reached the decisions it did with respect to the Applicants.

Agreed. The decisions weren’t really explained beyond the simple “you engage in advocacy”.

[39] Accordingly, I find that the Applicants are likely to succeed on the merits in setting aside the decisions as unreasonable.

The Procedural Fairness of the Process
[40] The application and scope of procedural fairness in administrative decision-making is explained by the Supreme Court of Canada in Baker v Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration), [1999] 2 SCR 817 [Baker].

[41] It was noted at para 20 of Baker that “The fact that a decision is administrative and affects ‘the rights, privileges or interests of an individual’ is sufficient to trigger the application of the duty of fairness.” In the matters before this Court the interests of those whose accreditation applications were rejected are most certainly affected. This was not disputed by the Commission; rather it submitted that the Applicants were afforded a fair process in accordance with Baker.

[42] The Supreme Court of Canada observed at para 22 of Baker that “the duty of fairness is flexible and variable, and depends on an appreciation of the context and the particular statute and the rights affected.” In paras 23 to 27, it listed five factors that a court ought to consider when determining the content of the duty of fairness in a particular case. There is no suggestion that these are the only factors a court may consider:
(i) The nature of the decision being made and the process followed in making it;
(ii) The nature of the statutory scheme and the terms of the statute pursuant to which the decision-maker operates;
(iii) The importance of the decision to those affected;
(iv) The legitimate expectations of those challenging the decision regarding the procedures to be followed or the result to be reached; and
(v) The choices made by the decision-maker regarding the procedure followed.

Conclusion
[68] I have found that these Applicants have satisfied the tripartite test for the granting of the injunction requested. Moreover, and for the reasons above, I find that granting of the requested Order is just and equitable in all of the circumstances.

[69] For these Reasons, following the oral hearing on October 7, 2019, the Court issued the following two Orders:
the Leaders’ Debates Commission / Commission des Debats des Chefs is to grant David Menzies and Keenan [sic] Bexte of Rebel News the media accreditation required to permit them to attend and cover the Federal Leaders’ Debates taking place on Monday, October 7, 2019 in the English language and Thursday, October 10, 2019 in the French language;
the Leaders’ Debates Commission / Commission des Debats des Chefs is to grant Andrew James Lawton of the True North Centre for Public Policy the media accreditation required to permit him to attend and cover the Federal Leaders’ Debates taking place on Monday, October 7, 2019 in the English language and Thursday, October 10, 2019 in the French language;

[70] After issuing these Orders, the Applicants requested and were granted an opportunity to make submissions on costs. The Court was later informed that “the parties have resolved the issue of costs” and thus no further Order is required.

For all the issues a person may have with an outlet, such as Rebel Media or True North Canada, it was nice to see this decision happen. The public is best served with more media available.

Regardless of how sketchy True North is, Elections Canada acted in a very heavy-handed way. The Courtruling was a very welcome victory.

17. Malcolm Misrepresents On Twitter

Malcolm claims to be the FOUNDER of True North Canada in her Twitter biography. While this is true on a technical level, it omits that she and her husband took an existing charity, renamed and repurposed it, and now use it for tax benefits.

It’s not entirely clear what this “non-profit” of True North Initiative adds, other than perhaps some cover. Slapping that on a rebranded charity seems to be what counts as “founding” these days.

While I support the challenge in Federal Court (allowing coverage of the debates), it was in the spirit of open media. It is not in any way to be seen as an endorsement of this “organization”. It is deceitful and underhanded.

Coronavirus
Jul 23, 2015 – THE PIRBRIGHT INSTITUTE
The present invention provides a live, attenuated coronavirus comprising a variant replicase gene encoding polyproteins comprising a mutation in one or more of non-structural protein(s) (nsp)-10, nsp-14, nsp-15 or nsp-16. The coronavirus may be used as a vaccine for treating and/or preventing a disease, such as infectious bronchitis, in a subject.

Description
FIELD OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to an attenuated coronavirus comprising a variant replicase gene, which causes the virus to have reduced pathogenicity. The present invention also relates to the use of such a coronavirus in a vaccine to prevent and/or treat a disease.

Coronaviruses are divided into four groups, as shown below:
.
Alpha
Canine coronavirus (CCoV)
Feline coronavirus (FeCoV)
Human coronavirus 229E (HCoV-229E)
Porcine epidemic diarrhoea virus (PEDV)
Transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV)
Human Coronavirus NL63 (NL or New Haven)
.
Beta
Bovine coronavirus (BCoV)
Canine respiratory coronavirus (CRCoV)—Common in SE Asia and Micronesia
Human coronavirus OC43 (HCoV-OC43)
Mouse hepatitis virus (MHV)
Porcine haemagglutinating encephalomyelitis virus (HEV)
Rat coronavirus (Roy). Rat Coronavirus is quite prevalent in Eastern Australia where, as of March/April 2008, it has been found among native and feral rodent colonies.
(No common name as of yet) (HCoV-HKU1)
 Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV)
Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV)
.
Gamma
Infectious bronchitis virus (IBV)
Turkey coronavirus (Bluecomb disease virus)
Pheasant coronavirus
Guinea fowl coronavirus
.
Delta
Bulbul coronavirus (BuCoV)
Thrush coronavirus (ThCoV)
Munia coronavirus (MuCoV)
Porcine coronavirus (PorCov) HKU15

More information is available here, but the point is this: the coronaviruses were (allegedly) modified to help cure other diseases, such as bronchitis.

The variant replicase gene of the coronavirus of the present invention may be derived from an alphacoronavirus such as TGEV; a betacoronavirus such as MHV; or a gammacoronavirus such as IBV.

As used herein the term “derived from” means that the replicase gene comprises substantially the same nucleotide sequence as the wild-type replicase gene of the relevant coronavirus. For example, the variant replicase gene of the present invention may have up to 80%, 85%, 90%, 95%, 98% or 99% identity with the wild type replicase sequence. The variant coronavirus replicase gene encodes a protein comprising a mutation in one or more of non-structural protein (nsp)-10, nsp-14, nsp-15 or nsp-16 when compared to the wild-type sequence of the non-structural protein.

This new version is apparently a derivative of an alpha, beta, or gamma coronavirus already in existence. I’ve been told this Wuhan coronavirus has nothing to do with Pirbright’s patent or work. Although the patent information states that the patented version may contain 80-99% of the wildtype replicase sequence.

The variant is essentially a mutation in 1 (or more) non-structural proteins.

Still, one heck of a coincidence to be doing so much research into a specific area and then something else emerges. It will become apparent why soon.

Six leading scientists from Pirbright will be involved in the project, including Professor John Hammond, Professor Venugopal Nair, Dr Simon Graham, Dr Elma Tchilian, Professor Munir Iqbal and Dr Erica Bickerton. Their combined expert knowledge will drive the study of cattle, pig and poultry antibody responses at high resolution to expand our understanding of protective immunity in species that can also be used as models for a range of human infectious diseases.

The aim is to use Pirbright’s expertise in livestock viral diseases, cutting-edge technology and unique high-containment facilities to bring antibody discovery, manipulation and testing up to the benchmark already seen in the immunological field for rodents and humans. “New tools have given us the opportunity to utilise these detailed antibody responses to make the next generation of vaccines and therapies” said research lead Professor Hammond.
This highly collaborative work will address the needs of the livestock research community whilst bridging the requirements of the vaccine industry. A number of work programmes will focus on studying B cells and antibodies at multiple scales including gene expression, single cell function and the entire antibody response.

Findings from this research will be used to drive vaccine selection and design and test antibody therapies, “which will improve animal health and ultimately human health, as well as ensuring the security of our food supply”, finished Professor Hammond. Pirbright will ultimately act as a ‘Hub’ able to provide specific methods, access to animal models and the associated expertise to drive antibody research within the ‘One Health’ agenda.

“This is the single biggest investment in the immunology of livestock in the UK from an international funder, and the British Society for Immunology will do all we can to support this collaborative initiative and help maximise its impact for the benefit of human and animal health”, commented Dr Doug Brown, Chief Executive of the British Society for Immunology

A major contributor to Pirbright Institute is the Gates Foundation, headed by Bill and Melinda Gates. Yes, those Gates. But why is that an issue? What’s wrong with a wealthy couple contributing to help prevent infectious diseases?

Let’s put it this way: Bill Gates has some views that are (mildly) controversial. He has gone on record with comments that suggest be supports human depopulation — reducing the number of people on Earth. Could this be a way to accomplish that goal?

6. Cull The Population To Save Planet?

(Bill Gates and depopulation, from 2011, clip from video)

(Bill Gates and depopulation, from 2011, entire video)

(Bill Gates, improved health care, overpopulation)

(Bill Gates: health and population correlation)

(Bill Gates: vaccines and Ebola virus)

Yes, Gates flouts the sales pitch that improving health results in less population. His stated reasoning is that people will simply have less children if they know the kids are more likely to survive into adulthood.

Problem is, that hasn’t fared out. Look at Africa and the Middle East. Improvements in health have lead to an exploding population. Granted, their goal (those who are Muslim) is to outbreed and eventually overrun every nation on Earth. But the population drop Gates claims simply isn’t a reality.

Now, is this simply an attitude that Bill Gates has, or has he taken any steps to estimate how the population could be reduced? Instead of lowering birth rates, perhaps there is a simpler and more direct method.

7. Bill Gates Running “Death Scenario”

A viral pandemic could kill 65 million people
Toner’s simulation imagined a fictional virus called CAPS. The analysis, part of a collaboration with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, looked at what would happen if a pandemic originated in Brazil’s pig farms. (The Wuhan virus originated in a seafood market that sold live animals.)

The virus in Toner’s simulation would be resistant to any modern vaccine. It would be deadlier than SARS, but about as easy to catch as the flu.

The pretend outbreak started small: Farmers began coming down with symptoms that resembled the flu or pneumonia. From there, the virus spread to crowded and impoverished urban neighborhoods in South America.

Flights were canceled, and travel bookings dipped by 45%. People disseminated false information on social media.

After six months, the virus had spread around the globe. A year later, it had killed 65 million people.

Sure, this is all just a simulation. It’s just an academic exercise.

Of course, for people like Bill Gates, who claim that Carbon Dioxide has to be cut to save the planet, one has to wonder what his actual goals are. As outlined extensively in the CLIMATE CHANGE SCAM series, Carbon Dioxide isn’t pollution. This whole “industry” is very much a cash grab.

CLICK HERE, for Part III, Saskatchewan Appeals Court Reference.
CLICK HERE, for Part IV, Controlled Opposition to Carbon Tax.

CLICK HERE, for Part XIII, controlled opposition going to SCC.
CLICK HERE, for Part XIV, Mark Carney’s new UN role.
CLICK HERE, for Part XIV(II), Carney, CCX, Goldman, Central Banking.
CLICK HERE, for UN global taxation efforts.

So why is Gates pushing an obviously false narrative? Why claim that improving the health of people in Africa and the Middle East will result in a reduced birthrate and lower population? Why claim that Carbon Dioxide is a pollution that will harm the planet?

Is it just a coincidence this “simulation” happened just months before the real thing? Or was this a calculated test run?

8. CBC: Nothing To See Here, People

Public Health Agency of Canada describes it as a possible ‘policy breach,’ no risk to Canadian public

Sure, just a policy breach. Just some minor bureaucratic error that went on. Surely nothing that the peons have to concern themselves with.

“All of this is unproven, but even microbiology, sometimes especially microbiology, can have issues that involve national security.”

It’s something the Canadian Security Intelligence Service has already warned about, said Leah West, who teaches national security law at Carleton’s Norman Paterson School of International Affairs.

“Canada is facing threats from foreign governments seeking to steal intellectual property and that could include state-funded research,” she said.

“The two big things I want to see is whether or not these individuals are charged with crimes by the RCMP …that will give us a lot of information about what is really at stake here.”

West is also interested in seeing how this plays out politically between Canada and the Chinese government.

Sure there’s nothing to worry about. China is a hostile country who kidnapped 2 of our citizens after we locked up one of their spies (Meng). But why should this, or anything else, prohibit the Chinese from getting such clearance into Canadian facilities?

Let’s be clear: diversity is a lie. The vast majority of people’s strongest ties are with those who they share an ethnic (racial) bond with. Letting Chinese nationals into confidential Canadian labs under the guise of “cooperation and diversity”, is coming national suicide.

One has to wonder if the Canadian Government is really trying to kill us with what they allow to happen

9. Depopulation The Real Goal?

This could all be an extremely wild and unlikely coincidence, but it’s difficult to take on the surface. Too much money at stake, and other nations have an agenda.

For people who (claim to) believe that there are too many people on the planet, and that climate change is inevitable, we must ask a question: what would they be willing to do to stop it?

Is potentially killing millions (or billions) of people a way to save the planet by cutting emissions? Even though the climate change scam is based on lies? There is more here than what the public is being told.

And while you’re at it, go check out Civilian Intelligence Network.

On a semi-serious ending, doesn’t the outbreak of Wuhan Coronavirus come across like this (fictional) movie series of Resident Evil?

Much Of “Conservative” Media In Canada Dominated By Koch/Atlas

(Atlas Network, which funds 12 (was 13) groups in Canada, 140 in U.S.)

(Post Media, which owns most “conservative” media outlets in Canada)

This is the second part. Buckle up.

2. Atlas Network’s Canadian Partners

  • Alberta Institute
  • Canadian Constitution Foundation
  • Canadian Taxpayers Federation
  • Canadians For Democracy And Transparency
  • Fraser Institute
  • Frontier Center For Public Policy
  • Institute For Liberal Studies
  • Justice Center For Constitutional Freedoms
  • MacDonald-Laurier Institute For Public Policy
  • Manning Center
  • Montreal Economic Institute
  • World Taxpayers Federation

Why address Atlas Network? Because many of its operatives pretend to be objective and non-partisan in what they write and speak about.

While Atlas certainly does not have a monopoly on the paid shills in the media, there seem to be an awful lot of them who are connected. So let’s take a look into it. Note: Not all will be conservative, but a lot of them are. Just shows they’re all globalists.

3. Rebel Media’s Ezra Levant

I started attending Fraser Institute Student Seminars, not just in my own city, but I’d even travel to go to others in nearby cities. I then attended the Student Leaders Colloquium, and then became an FI summer intern, where I wrote a book called Youthquake. I was a Koch Foundation Summer Fellow in Washington, DC, and have attended various Institute for Humane Studies (HIS) and Liberty Fund events over the years. I’m a lawyer by profession; right after articling I worked for several years on Parliament Hill for Preston Manning and later for Stockwell Day. I joined the National Post’s editorial board for two years. After trying my own hand in politics, I wrote a book called Fight Kyoto and practiced law. Last January, with several other Fraser Institute alumni, I founded the Western Standard magazine, which publishes every two weeks in a classical liberal vein.

That’s right. Ezra Levant cut his teethfor the Koch Foundation and the Fraser Institute. He then got involved in conservative politics and media outlets. One such venture was founding the Western Standard.

4. Derek Fildebrant: Western Standard Editor

Fildebrandt used to be head of the Alberta Branch of the Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation. However, people weren’t happy when he used his training to privately sublet a publicly funded apartment. Now out of politics, he revived Ezra Levant’s old publication, the Western Standard.

Interesting situation: Both Levant and Fildebrandt have ties to Atlas Network and Koch. Levant worked at Fraser Institute, Fildebrandt at the Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation. One big happy family.

5. Tommy Robinson, Counter-Jihad Movement

Tommy Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon has appeared on Rebel Media many times. However, there was something not quite right with him. YouTuber Squatting Slav explains here, and also here what is wrong, better than I can. Yaxley-Lennon/Robinson repeatedly calls out Islamic extremism, but turns a blind eye to the groups who are pushing for mass migration of Muslims.

The approach that Yaxley-Lennon/Robinson of getting people in the UK to focus primarily on Islam, and the problems Muslim cause (and ignore other issues), is repeated in Canada with Rebel Media.

Although not part of Atlas Network, Robinson is pushing the agenda of Ezra Levant and others. Focus on the Muslims, ignore the bigger picture. Laura Loomer and Katie Hopkins also appear to follow the same path.

6. Rebel Media In Bed With The PPC

Aside from the very favourable coverage that Rebel Media gives to the People’s Party of Canada, there are some connections that cannot be overlooked.

  • Maxime Bernier was Executive VP for Montreal Economic Institute
  • PPC Staffer Martin Mass also worked for MEI
  • PPC Staffer Maxime Hupe also worked for Fraser Institute
  • Rebel Media “Commander” Levant worked for Fraser Institute
  • Fraser Institute and MEI are both part of Atlas Network

An interesting topic that (to my knowledge) hasn’t been brought up by Ezra or anyone at Rebel. MEI is chaired by Helene Desmarais, wife of Paul Desmarais Jr. And there are 2 other Berniers (Alexandre and Jean) who are still working for MEI.
http://archive.is/Zo6rk
http://archive.is/7KowS
http://archive.is/XKZhV

And this will come off as extremely petty and silly, but also needs to be asked: Doesn’t the website for the People’s Party look and awful lot like the Alberta Institute? AI is also part of Atlas Network.


http://archive.is/RFguu
http://archive.is/gZRPu

If Rebel were an outfit aimed at getting to the truth in politics, Ezra Levant would be asking tough questions about PPC policy, how similar it is to CPC, as well as connections such as these. Instead, all of that is shoved off the table for some softballs.

How is NOT exposing obvious globalist ties in any way beneficial to the Canadian public? It’s not, but Ezra works for the same organization, so they get a pass.

Ezra could also ask Bernier why he spends so much time talking about the DAIRY cartel, and never mentions the international BANKING cartel. But we know the answer to that.

7. Candice Malcolm: Koch, Fraser Institute

Candice worked for Koch and the Fraser Institute, before getting into journalism. She now runs True North Canada, which “identifies” as a non-profit group. Wonder who funds that.

8. Kasra Nejatian (Levinson), Candice’s Husband

Interesting side note: Kasra Nejatian (a.k.a. Kasra Levinson) is Candice Malcolm’s husband. He is a Director at the Canadian Constitution Foundation, which is also part of Atlas Network. He’s part of the CCF, and she was part of Fraser and Koch Institute.

Also worth noting is that there are 2 other Directors at the CCF: Michael Walker and Elanor Nicholls, who are also part of the Fraser Institute. But again, they are all part of the same family.

9. Preston Manning, ex-MP

Former MP and head of the Reform Party, Preston Manning is both head of the Manning Institute (named after him), and part of the Fraser Institute. But let’s not kids ourselves. They are both part of Atlas Network. He’s also part of something called the Smart Prosperity Institute. He also publishes in various Canadian newspapers as a guest columnist.

10. Chuck Strahl, Joe Oliver, ex-MPs

Also in the Manning Institute are Joe Oliver and Chuck Strahl. Both are former Members of Parliament, and both now call themselves consultants. They do occasionally speak publicly.

11. Tom Flanagan: Author, Campaign Manager

In the political realm, he managed Stephen Harper’s campaigns for leadership of the Canadian Alliance and the Conservative Party of Canada, the 2004 Conservative national campaign, and the 2012 Wildrose Alberta provincial campaign.

When not involved in politics, Flanagan writes articles and books. Very prolific writer.

12. Danielle Smith: NewsTalk 770 Host

Smith interned for the Fraser Institute in 1996/1997. She also hosted Global Sunday and wrote for the Calgary Herald. After a stint in Alberta politics, she hosts an afternoon radio show.

13. Peter McCaffrey: Calgary Sun, HuffPo

Intro:
The Alberta Institute is an independent, libertarian-minded, public policy think tank that aims to advance personal freedom and choice in Alberta.
.
Mission:
We aim to advance personal freedom and choice in Alberta, by developing and promoting solutions to public policy issues.
We focus on a wide variety of public policy issues at both the provincial and municipal level.
.
Independence:
We don’t accept any government funding and we never will.
We think you should be free to choose, for yourself, which organizations to support.
We’d welcome your donation if you like what we do, but we won’t force you to give us money if you don’t!

So, the Alberta Institute claims not to accept any government funding whatsoever, and pledges never to do so. Sounds great, though it begs the obvious question: Exactly who does fund the Alberta Institute?

President Peter McCaffrey writes to several publications such as Calgary Sun, the Calgary Herald. But his organization is just another part of the Koch-funded Atlas Network.

14. Canadian Taxpayers’ Fed: Canada Free Press

A surprisingly large number of articles from the appear published by the Canada Free Press. It’s almost as if the online outlet was specifically catering to them.

15. Joel Wood: Professor & Lecturer

While many in the “Conservative Inc.” movement condemn the carbon tax idea as wasteful, Woods looks at economic options that can come from such taxation. Keep in mind, he is no scientist, he still weighs options, for how the cash grab can be done. He is a university professor who moonlights as a public speaker.

Just another Koch/Fraser operative masquerading as an objective and impartial researcher.

16. Patrick Moore, Environmental Activist

Patrick Moore has gone on many channels and podcasts to discuss the climate change hoaz, and that is appreciated. However, he is notorious for saying it was safe to drink glyphosate, but refusing to do it himself. Makes one wonder what else he doesn’t really believe in. And given his employment in the Frontier Center for Public Policy, it is legitimate to ask where his interests lie.

17. Dave Rubin: The Rubin Report

Although he is American, Rubin is worth discussing. He is fairly popular with the Canadian public in the alt-media scene. After leaving The Young Turks, Rubin partnered with Learn Liberty, which is a project of the Institute For Humane Studies. One of the Directors of IHS is none other than Charles Koch. Guess Koch pays better than Al-Jazeera, who funds TYT.

18. Honourable Mentions

Fernando joined the National Citizen’s Coalition, which is the organization Stephen Harper used to run. While presenting himself as an independent, his website now amounts to rehashing anti-Trudeau talking points. No surprise, considering who owns him now.

Manny works as a lobbyist, but comes on shows such as Rebel Media and promotes himself as a commentator. He is also an advisor for the Conservative Party of Canada.

Quebec media figure Chantel Hebert is also a member of the Trudeau Foundation.

Chantal Hébert is a national affairs writer with the Toronto Star and a guest columnist for Le Devoir and L’Actualité. She is a weekly participant on the political panel At Issue on the CBC’s The National as well as Radio-Canada’s Les Coulisses du pouvoir.
Ms Hébert began her career in Toronto as a reporter for the regional newsroom of Radio-Canada in 1975 before moving on to Parliament Hill for Radio-Canada radio. She has served as parliamentary bureau chief for Le Devoir and La Presse.
Hébert is a graduate of Glendon College, York University. She is a Senior Fellow of Massey College at the University of Toronto and hold an honorary doctorate from Bishop’s University. She is a recipient of two Asia-Pacific media fellowship (Malaysia and Japan). She is the 2005 recipient of the APEX Public Service Award. In 2006, she received the Hy Solomon award for excellence in journalism and public policy as well as York University’s Pinnacle Achievement Bryden Alumni award. She is the author of a 2007 book titled French Kiss: Stephen Harper’s Blind Date with Quebec.
Hébert is an Officer of the Order of Canada.

19. Truth About Canadian Media

We like to think that there are more open minded and trustworthy sources in right-leaning media. However, that it is not really the case. Too much of the media is controlled by agents who don’t have Canadians’ best interests at hearts.

Perhaps Ronald Reagan has the best idea: trust, but verify. Of course, that meant to dealing with the U.S.S.R. Or better yet, don’t trust until you have verified.

While there are more names that can go on this list, this should give a pretty good idea what is going on. Remember, Post Media owns the bulk of the media in Canada (at least right-leaning media), both major and minor publications. And many of the “independents” are not who they appear to be.

Are there good reporters and journalists in Canada? Certainly, but they seem to be few and far between.

2. Context For This Piece

It doesn’t really need much of an explanation. People should know who is really behind their media and how independent these organizations really are.

Taking Canada as an example: a lot of the “conservative” or right-leaning outfits are owned and controlled by Post Media. Yes, it is a virtual monopoly.

Also worth noting: many of the “right-leaning” think tanks are controlled by one organization, Atlas Network. The same people just resurface under different names. These groups help influence globalist policies such as mass migration and globalized trade.

And in going through the names, one ethnic group seemed to appear an awful lot, much more than its percentage of the population would suggest.

3. Post Media Owns A Lot

Here’s a quick rundown of some of the more mainstream media outlets in Canada. Most of these names should be familiar to people.

  • Calgary Herald
  • Calgary Sun
  • Canada.com
  • Canoe.com
  • Celebrating.com
  • Driving
  • Edmonton Journal
  • Growth Op
  • Healthing.ca
  • London Free Press
  • Montreal Gazette
  • National Post
  • Ottawa Citizen
  • Regina-Leader Post
  • Remembering.ca
  • Saskatoon StarPhoenix
  • The Province
  • Toronto Sun
  • Vancouver Sun
  • Windsor Star
  • Winnipeg Sun

Of course, this doesn’t cover countless smaller publications that this media giant owns. Scary, just how many “voices” are controlled by one source. Now, let’s show the Postmedia “communities”. A much longer list, and many have their websites included.

4. Post Media Board Of Directors

Paul Godfrey (Executive Chair)

5. Atlas Network’s Canadian Partners

  • Alberta Institute
  • Canadian Constitution Foundation
  • Canadian Taxpayers Federation
  • Canadians For Democracy And Transparency
  • Fraser Institute
  • Frontier Center For Public Policy
  • Institute For Liberal Studies
  • Justice Center For Constitutional Freedoms
  • MacDonald-Laurier Institute For Public Policy
  • Manning Center
  • Montreal Economic Institute
  • World Taxpayers Federation

Why address Atlas Network? Because many of its operatives pretend to be objective and non-partisan in what they write and speak about.

While Atlas certainly does not have a monopoly on the paid shills in the media, there seem to be an awful lot of them who are connected. So let’s take a look into it. Note: Not all will be conservative, but a lot of them are. Just shows they’re all globalists.

6. Tom Flanagan: Author, Campaign Manager

In the political realm, he managed Stephen Harper’s campaigns for leadership of the Canadian Alliance and the Conservative Party of Canada, the 2004 Conservative national campaign, and the 2012 Wildrose Alberta provincial campaign.

When not involved in politics, Flanagan writes articles and books. Very prolific writer.

7. Danielle Smith: NewsTalk 770 Host

Smith interned for the Fraser Institute in 1996/1997. She also hosted Global Sunday and wrote for the Calgary Herald. After a stint in Alberta politics, she hosts an afternoon radio show.

8. Ezra Levant: Current “Rebel Commander”

I started attending Fraser Institute Student Seminars, not just in my own city, but I’d even travel to go to others in nearby cities. I then attended the Student Leaders Colloquium, and then became an FI summer intern, where I wrote a book called Youthquake. I was a Koch Foundation Summer Fellow in Washington, DC, and have attended various Institute for Humane Studies (HIS) and Liberty Fund events over the years. I’m a lawyer by profession; right after articling I worked for several years on Parliament Hill for Preston Manning and later for Stockwell Day. I joined the National Post’s editorial board for two years. After trying my own hand in politics, I wrote a book called Fight Kyoto and practiced law. Last January, with several other Fraser Institute alumni, I founded the Western Standard magazine, which publishes every two weeks in a classical liberal vein.

That’s right. Ezra Levant cut his teethfor the Koch Foundation and the Fraser Institute. He then got involved in conservative politics and media outlets. One such venture was founding the Western Standard.

9. Derek Fildebrant: Western Standard Editor

Fildebrandt used to be head of the Alberta Branch of the Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation. However, people weren’t happy when he used his training to privately sublet a publicly funded apartment. Now out of politics, he revived Ezra Levant’s old publication, the Western Standard.

Interesting situation: Both Levant and Fildebrandt have ties to Atlas Network and Koch. Levant worked at Fraser Institute, Fildebrandt at the Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation. One big happy family.

10. Candice Malcolm: Koch, Fraser Institute

Candice worked for Koch and the Fraser Institute, before getting into journalism. She now runs True North Canada, which “identifies” as a non-profit group. Wonder who funds that.

11. Manny Montenegrino: Think Sharp

Manny works as a lobbyist, but comes on shows such as Rebel Media and promotes himself as a commentator. He is also an advisor for the Conservative Party of Canada.

12. Spencer Fernando: Nat’l Citizens Coalition

Fernando joined the National Citizen’s Coalition, which is the organization Stephen Harper used to run. While at one time an independent writer and journalist, he is reduced to a mouthpiece and shill.

13: Chantel Hebert: Trudeau Foundation

Quebec media figure Chantel Hebert is also a member of the Trudeau Foundation.

Chantal Hébert is a national affairs writer with the Toronto Star and a guest columnist for Le Devoir and L’Actualité. She is a weekly participant on the political panel At Issue on the CBC’s The National as well as Radio-Canada’s Les Coulisses du pouvoir.

She is the author of a 2007 book titled French Kiss: Stephen Harper’s Blind Date with Quebec.
Hébert is an Officer of the Order of Canada.

14. Alexandre Trudeau: Trudeau Foundation

If making Islamic propaganda films counts as “independent journalism“, then I guess this guy counts. Late brother of current Prime Minister, and son of former Prime Minister.

15. Canadian Media Is Controlled

Obviously, the list of media personalities with globalist ties is not exhaustive. There are more, but this article is getting long already. A few points to take away:

(A) Canada’s media is essentially controlled by 1 organization — Post Media. It owns not only the major outlet, but many smaller ones as well. It’s basically a monopoly.

(B) Even within so-called “conservative” and alt/indy media, there are many with globalist ties (such as with Koch, Atlas Network, or the Trudeau Foundation). As such, nothing they say can be taken at face value without doing research on the reporter.

(C) Looking at the names, a certain ethnic group appears a lot in the media, far more than it should. And no, it’s not white people. Whatever happened to promoting diversity?

2. Context For This Article

Much of the Canadian public knows about “Gladue Rights”, which is essentially a race-based discount given to Aboriginal defendants in criminal proceedings. In short, judges must consider systemic racism and other discrimination, and search for ways to reduce their sentences.

However, this does not extend only to Aboriginals. Blacks can also use many of the same excuses in pleading for reduced punishment for crimes they commit.

Everyone, regardless of their race, should be against this. The only way a society works is when everyone is treated the same way for their actions. One group should not benefit, or be hindered by unequal laws.

3. Court Cases For Blacks

Here are some recent court cases in which “racial discrimination” or “system racism” was taken into account by judges sentencing black felons. This is not the complete list.

4. Looking At A Cultural Assessment

[17] Cultural Assessment – Completed by Mr. R. Wright, MSW, RSW. It is extensive, well-informed and well-researched.
The Nature of an Impact of Race and Culture Assessment
Though much has been written about the intersection of race and the criminal justice system, and in particular the experience of North Americans of African descent, until the development of IRCA’s (sic) there had been no recognized form for the presentation of such a report. That people of African descent have been overrepresented among incarcerated persons in Canada has been studied by academics, justice system leaders, and activist persons. The Office of the Correctional Investigator took special notice of the conditions of inmates of African descent in federal correctional institutions in its year end report in 2013. It concluded:

“Black inmates are one of the fastest growing sub-populations in federal corrections. Over the last 10 years, the number of federal incarcerated Black inmates has increased by 80% from 778 to 1,403. Black inmates now account for 9.5% of the total prison population (up from 6.3% in 2003/04) while representing just 2.9% of the general Canadian population.” (p.8)

Now, 4 years after the advent of these reports in the well publicized YCJA matter described as R v. X, IRCAs have been widely accepted in Nova Scotia courts and have also been conducted in Ontario. Though I fully respect that the experience of aboriginal Canadians is quite unique, and I have no wish to expropriate or exploit their struggle and leadership, I nevertheless need to acknowledge that my development of IRCAs has been influenced by my familiarity with Gladue reports. Like Gladue reports, the goal of IRCAs is to provide courts with more background information about an offender’s race and cultural background to assist the court at arriving at a just sentence: A sentence that considers the circumstances of the offender, alternatives to incarceration, and does not further contribute to the systemic problems of overrepresentation of persons within correctional populations. This principle is generally stated in the Criminal Code of Canada with particular attention given to Aboriginal offenders:

718.2 A court that imposes a sentence shall also taken into consideration the following principles:
(e) all available sanctions, other than imprisonment, that are reasonable in the circumstances and consistent with the harm done to victims or to the community should be considered for all offenders, with particular attention to the circumstances of Aboriginal offenders.

In keeping with these principles, it is a founding premise of IRCAs that a person’s race and cultural heritage should be considered as a significant factor in considering their sentence n a criminal matter. Not just because of cultural responses to normal stressors, but also because of the forces of racism that person experience and our growing understanding of how this affects outcomes when one encounters the justice and other government systems. In Nova Scotia we have significant reason to understand these effects. We are the province of the Royal Commission on the Donald Marshall, Jr., Prosecution (1989), which opening paragraph is very telling:

The criminal justice system failed Donald Marshall, Jr. at virtually every turn from his arrest and wrongful conviction for murder in 1971 up to, and even beyond, his acquittal by the Court of Appeal in 1983. The tragedy of the failure is compounded by evidence that this miscarriage of justice could – and should – have been prevented, or at least corrected quickly, if those involved in the system had carried out their duties in a professional and/or competent manner. That they did not is due, in part at least, to the fact that Donald Marshall, Jr. is a Native. (p.1)

We are also the province of the Black Learners Advisory Committee Report on Education: Redressing Inequity – Empowering Black Learners (1994). This report was produced as part of a comprehensive study of the education inequities that exist for African Nova Scotians (ANS). It produced 3 volumes of materials and 30 recommendations for education reform. That systemic racism exists in the Nova Scotia education system was well described by this report:

Black Nova Scotians, like other Black Canadians, are victimized by a racist ideology and a racist social structure. Racism permeates the entire social, economic, political and cultural environment of Nova Scotian and Canadian….

During the BLAC research, we encountered widespread condemnation of the education system as biased, insensitive and racist. Systemic racism was seen as manifested in student assessment and placement; in labelling of large numbers of Black students as slow learners or having behaviour problems; in steraming (sic); in low teacher expectation; in denigration by and exclusion of Blacks from the curriculum; and in the total lack of responsiveness to the needs of Black learners and concerns of the Black community.” (pp. 34, 35)

Similarly, the differential and disadvantageous experience of African Canadians in the federal corrections system has been documented by the Office of the Correctional Investigator in it year end report in 2013. Nova Scotia’s review of the Mental Health and Addictions system produced the Together We Can Strategy (2012) found that African Nova Scotians were among a number of diverse communities whose mental health and addictions treatment needs had not yet been served sufficiently. This Nova Scotian finding was identified earlier in a national study completed by a subcommittee of the Mental Health Commission of Canada. The document they produced: Improving Mental Health Services for Immigrant, Refugee, Ethno-Cultural and Racialized Groups: Issues and Options for Service Improvement (2009). It is interesting to note, that I served on the MHCC subcommittee and was a contributor to that report. Ms. Lana MacLean, my colleague and friend who is also a person who conducts IRCAs served on the committee that produced the Nova Scotia review document.

Knowing all of this, an IRCA then seeks to understand how an individual’s ANS heritage and interaction with formal and informal systems has affected their involvement in criminal behaviour, will be a factor in their treatment while incarcerated, and will be a factor in their rehabilitation and reintegration in the community. These issues are consistent with the expectations of the report described in Judge Curran’s order requesting: “preparation of a cultural assessment report regarding his African Nova Scotian background and any cultural factors and racial factors which are suggested to be systemic in nature, but may also have individual impacts on him,” Examination of “the role played by Derek Demitrius Faulkner’s cultural and racial background with respect to the criminal offence herein.”

Preparation of this Report
In preparing this report I have participated in the following activities:
• Interview in person of Mr. Faulkner at Northeast Nova Scotia Correctional Facility
• Review of JEIN report, Crown Brief and other Disclosure material
• Interview by phone of Mr. Michael Dull, counsel for Mr. Faulkner in the civil matter
• I attempted contact with other collaterals but were not able to reach them in time for the drafting of this report. I will continue to reach out to collaterals in the event that I am called to testify on this report.

According to the cultural report, Nova Scotians engage in system racism. This is the case of R. v. Faulkner, 2019 NSPC 36 (CanLII).

It had nothing to do with any of the AGGRAVATING FACTORS that were cited in Paragraph 5 of the sentencing report

II AGGRAVATING FACTORS
(1) Robbery is inherently violent and there were implied threats of violence to clerk #1 and specific to #2
(2) Lengthy record including two robberies, 2005/2009
(3) Accused released from custody; breached release
(4) Prolonged nature of the offence – accused was in store for over an hour
(5) Clerk asked member of public to call police

Nothing to do with committing a robbery and making threats.
Nothing to do with a robbery in 2005.
Nothing to do with a robbery in 2009.
Nothing to do with other criminal convictions.
Nothing to do with being in the store over an hour.
Nothing to do with breaching conditions of release.
The court needs to consider the “systemic racism” that blacks face.

Yeah, it’s all about those racist Nova Scotians. Turned him into a career criminal.

5. Section 15 Of Canadian Charter

Equality Rights
Marginal note:
Equality before and under law and equal protection and benefit of law
15. (1) Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.
Marginal note:
Affirmative action programs
(2) Subsection (1) does not preclude any law, program or activity that has as its object the amelioration of conditions of disadvantaged individuals or groups including those that are disadvantaged because of race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.

Serious question: under the Canadian Charter, would this count as a law that ameliorates conditions of disadvantaged individuals? Guess we aren’t so equal after all.

6. Follow-up To Old Story

This topic was covered in a previous article in June last year. It was reported that this may become the law of the land. Admittedly I should have checked deeper into it at the time.

However, it seems that these cases have been going on for many years. The National Post just missed that detail. It just has not been codified into law — yet.

How exactly do we live in any sort of just society, when there are different rules and standards for people based on their skin colour? This completely flies in the face of equality under the law, which SHOULD apply to everyone.

7. 3 Levels Of Justice Now?

Under the Gladue ruling, judges are REQUIRED to take an Aboriginal person’s background into account when handing down sentencing. There is no discretion in the matter.

However, for blacks, judges MAY take race and circumstances into account, but this is not mandatory.

Everyone else, though, must take responsibility for their own actions. They don’t have the race card to play.
