CV #30(E): Crestview Strategy, Danielle Peters, Lobbyists Behind $173 Million Grant To Medicago

Medicago received a grant of $173,000,000 to develop a CV-19 vaccine. Beyond that, a portion of the grant is to build a manufacturing facility, which presumably should be operational by 2040.

The Gates Foundation finances: the WHO, the US CDC, GAVI, ID2020, John Hopkins University, Imperial College London, the Pirbright Institute, the BBC, and individual pharmaceutical companies. The International Health Regulations are legally binding. The Postmedia empire and the “independent” media are paid off, as are the fact-checkers. The virus was never isolated, PCR tests are a fraud, as are forced masks, social bubbles, and 2m distancing.

The above list only includes searches for Medicago, which Danielle Peters is featured prominently. She has been registered as a Medicago lobbyist since 2013. Those dates are when she met on behalf of Medicago to lobby for vaccines. If you only search her name, Peters is involved in other pharma lobbying, such as with Merck, Kalgene Pharmaceuticals, Therapure Biopharma, and the Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies

3. Danielle Peters, Magnet Strategy Group

Dani Peters is President of Magnet Strategy Group, a consulting firm that manages public affairs strategies in Canada and the United States.

Prior to founding Magnet Strategy Group, Dani held senior roles in public affairs firms in the U.S. and Canada, concentrating on fields that include innovation, health and life sciences. Over the past decade, Dani has worked with groups in the health sector to develop and manage government, public policy, funding, advocacy and stakeholder strategies.

Dani is co-founder of the Cross-Border Health Foundation, an organization that fosters dialogue between Canada and the United States around common health priorities. In addition to operating Magnet Strategy Group, Dani serves on the Industry Advisory Board for Bloom Burton & Co., a healthcare investment advisory firm in Toronto. She is also a Health Leader-in-Residence for the World Health Innovation Network (WIN), within the University of Windsor’s Odette School of Business.

What else is there to say? She is clearly a very connected person. Considering that Medicago landed a $173 million contract, due largely to her lobbying, Peters was financially a great investment. This deal wasn’t just to fund vaccine research, it was to build a facility as well.

4. Peters Lobbied While With Rothwell

It worth pointing out that Peters also lobbied on behalf of Medicago when she was employed by the firm, Rothwell Group. Seems that not much has changed.

5. Peters Part Of Adjuvant Partners As Well

Look familiar? It should. This profile is almost identical to the Magnet profile, down to using the same photograph. Among other things, Adjuvant lists “gene therapy” as one area it’s involved with. This appears to be another lobbying firm, as they don’t do medical research themselves.

6. Peters’ LinkedIn Page

The profile of one of the main players behind the $173 million spending. However, she has not acted alone in this.

7. Blake Oliver Jumps Ship To Government

On February 26, 2020, Blake Oliver lobbied the Federal Government on behalf of Medicago, while still employed at Crestview Strategy. Days later, he was working for the Government, in the Ministry of Transportation. He also helped volunteer for the Liberals in the 2019 election.

8. Patricia Sibal, Liberal Party Volunteer

Also connected to this is Patricia Sabil. She has lobbied for Medicago, while working for Crestview Strategy. She is also a volunteer with the Liberals in Ontario and Quebec.

9. Susie Heath, Liberal With Wynne/McGuinty

Susie Heath spent years with the Liberal Government of Dalton McGuinty and Kathleen Wynne. She has also lobbied on behalf of Medicago, while with Crestview Strategy

10. Jennifer Babcock, Ex-Crestview Lobbyist

Babcock spent several years in Parliament, working for various politicians. She also lobbied on behalf of both Medicago and GAVI. Honourable mentions go out to Lucas Malinowski, and Joanna Carey, who appear to have since left Crestview.

Jason Clark is still with Crestview, and has acted for Medicago and GAVI. He volunteered in the 2015 election for Liberals in the Ottawa region. Crestview itself was co-founded by Rob Silver, husband of Katie Telford, Trudeau’s Chief-of-Staff.

Currently, Ashton Arsenault is registered as a lobbyist for both Medicago and GAVI. For some variety, he is a strategist with the Conservative Party of Canada.

For some background information into Crestview and other lobbying, please check here, here, here and here.

This is what they mean when they say “we’re all in it together”.

11. Conflicts Of Interest Ignored In Media

Given the heavy subsidization of the media in Canada, it’s no surprise that none of this is being reported. When outlets are dependent on the Government to prop them up, they are unlikely to do real research. But about that $173 million grant, people should know who is really pulling the strings.

CV #10(C): Active Federal Pharma Lobbying Registrations, Vaccine Injury Compensation Program

According to the Federal Lobbying Registry, there are 69 ACTIVE registrations that are flagged under the search word of “vaccine”. This includes multiple registrations from the same company, and a few irrelevant hits. Lobbyists aren’t cheap, and there is considerable money tied up in all of this.

Also, what exactly is going on with that proposed vaccine injury compensation program?

1. No Details In Vaccine Injury Program

News release
December 10, 2020 – Ottawa, ON – Public Health Agency of Canada
.
We as Canadians pride ourselves on our commitment to each other. By getting vaccinated, we protect one another and our way of life. Vaccines are safe, effective and one of the best ways to prevent serious illness like COVID-19.

Vaccines are only approved in Canada after thorough and independent review of the scientific evidence. They are also closely monitored once on the market and can quickly be removed from market if safety concerns are identified. Notwithstanding the rigour of clinical trials and excellence in vaccine delivery, a small number of Canadians may experience an adverse event following immunization, caused by vaccines or their administration.

Like any medication, vaccines can cause side effects and reactions. After being vaccinated, it’s common to have mild and harmless side effects — this is the body’s natural response, as it’s working to build immunity against a disease. However, it is also possible for someone to have a serious adverse reaction to a vaccine. The chances of this are extremely rare — less than one in a million — and we have a duty to help if this occurs.

It is for this reason that the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is implementing a pan-Canadian no-fault vaccine injury support program for all Health Canada approved vaccines, in collaboration with provinces and territories. Building on the model in place in Québec for over 30 years, the program will ensure that all Canadians have to have fair access to support in the rare event that they experience an adverse reaction to a vaccine. This program will also bring Canada in line with its G7 counterparts with similar programs, and ensure the country remains competitive in accessing new vaccines as they become available.

Quick facts
Serious adverse reactions to vaccines are extremely rare. They happen less than one time in a million.

It was announced on December 10, 2020, that a vaccine injury program would be launched in cooperation with the Provinces. That was 2 1/2 months ago, and no details have emerged. Considering that mass vaccination is going on NOW, this is pretty urgent.

In “collaboration with the Provinces” implies that they will have to go along with it as well. If history is any indictation, Federal-Provincial talks go very slowly.

While it’s claimed that vaccines undergo serious testing PRIOR to their approval, that isn’t really the case. Details will be provided in the next section.

2. Vaccines Approved While Still In Testing

Interim orders
.
30.1 (1) The Minister may make an interim order that contains any provision that may be contained in a regulation made under this Act if the Minister believes that immediate action is required to deal with a significant risk, direct or indirect, to health, safety or the environment.

People naturally assume that a medical product (such as a vaccine), is thoroughly tested prior to being approved. Actually, the Section 30.1 of the Food & Drug Act allows the Health Minister to sign an Interim Order and approve almost anything. And yes, such an Order was signed by Patty Hajdu.

4. GSK Lobbyists Worked In Public Offices

The 4 lobbyists registered to advocate on behalf of GSK, (GlaxoSmithKline), have all held public office in some capacity. But don’t worry, they are probably neutral actors here, and nothing improper will happen.

5. Other Lobbyists Worked In Public Offices

Of course, Crestview Strategy, Ashton Arsenault, Zakery Blais & Jason Clark have all been addressed in previous pieces. Please check them out for more information.

This might also be a good time to bring up the people that have Doug Ford’s attention, Bill 160, Alberta and Quebec lobbying as well.

6. National Ethnic Press and Media Council

As an aside, some $750,000 of taxpayer money was handed out as “Covid relief” for the visible minority press. Surely, they won’t be too critical of Trudeau.

Postmedia Subsidies & Connections May Explain Lack Of Interest In Real Journalism

Postmedia owns the bulk of the media outlets in Canada. This includes both mainstream news, and many smaller ones. It is also heavily subsidized by the Government, which in reality, means the taxpayers. Is that the reason why they don’t properly cover this so-called “pandemic” in Canada?

1. The Media Is Not Loyal To The Public

Truth is essential in society, but the situation in Canada is worse than people imagine. In Canada (and elsewhere), the mainstream media and fact-checkers are subsidized, though they deny it. Post Media controls most outlets in Canada, and many “independents” have ties to Koch/Atlas. Real investigative journalism is needed, and some pointers are provided.

3. Many Programs Available For Media Firms

It was outlined earlier, some of the taxpayer subsidies that media companies can get. These include:
[A] Digital News subscription Tax Credit (15% rebate)
[B] Refundable Labour Tax Credit (up to 25% of salaries)
[C] Canada Periodical Fund (75% of expenses, up to $1.5M)
[D] Special Measures for Journalism (75% of expenses, up to $1.5M)

Now, we have the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy, which is even more handouts in order to keep otherwise unprofitable media solvent. In fairness, Postmedia does bring in over $100 million per quarter, according to its financials. But one has to wonder what strings are attached to these grants, such as the type of coverage provided to the public.

Granted, many businesses that have nothing to do with this industry are eligible as well for the CEWS.

4. Postmedia Expects Millions In Tax Breaks

[Page 8]
4. GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE
.
Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy
.
On April 11, 2020, the Government of Canada passed the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (“CEWS”) to support employers facing financial hardship as measured by certain revenue declines as a result of the COVID19 pandemic. CEWS currently provides a reimbursement of compensation expense to June 2021 provided the applicant has met the applicable criteria, which has been established up to March 13, 2021. During the three months ended November 30, 2020 the Company recognized a recovery of compensation expense of $6.6 million related to CEWS. As at November 30, 2020, the Company has an amount receivable related to CEWS of $5.6 million included in trade and other receivables on the condensed consolidated statement of financial position (August 31, 2020 – $13.0 million).

Journalism Tax Credits
.
On June 21, 2019 the federal budget was approved which contained measures specific to the news media industry including a journalism tax credit whereby qualifying Canadian news organizations may apply for a refundable labour tax credit applied to the salaries of journalists. In December 2019, the Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”) issued the Application for Qualified Canadian Journalism Organization Designation and guidance related to the eligibility, qualifications and determination of the refundable labour tax credit which was further clarified in April 2020. On November 19, 2020, the Company received its designation as a Qualified Canadian Journalism Organization.

On October 2, 2019, the Government of Quebec announced a similar refundable labour tax credit to be applied to the salaries of journalists in Quebec provided an entity receives an eligibility certificate issued by Investissement Québec.

Both the federal and Quebec journalism tax credit legislation include provisions to reduce the qualifying salaries and wages eligible for the credit for other forms of assistance received including CEWS. During the three months ended November 30, 2020, the Company recognized a recovery of compensation expense of $1.5 million related to the journalism tax credits (2019 – $2.4 million). As at November 30, 2020, the aggregate journalism tax credit receivable of $12.3 million is included in trade and other receivables on the condensed consolidated statement of financial position (August 31, 2020 – $10.8 million). The recognition of the journalism tax credits receivable is based on the Company’s interpretation of the federal budget and the related legislation. Actual amounts received may differ from the amounts currently recorded based on future CRA and/or Revenue Québec interpretations of eligibility, qualifications and determination of the tax credits.

To its credit, Postmedia is open about the subsidies it gets. They build into the financials the anticipated refunds from the Canada Revenue Agency. Now that they have their status as Qualified Canadian Journalism Organization, this seems inevitable.

6. Connections Of Postmedia Board Of Directors

Janet Ecker (Director)
.
Janet Ecker recently retired from the role of President and CEO of Toronto Financial Services Alliance, having served in the role for nearly 13 years. Ms. Ecker served as a member of provincial parliament in Ontario from 1995 to 2003 and held the portfolios of Minister of Finance, Minister of Education, Minister of Community and Social Services and Government House Leader. In 2002 she was the first woman to deliver a budget in Ontario.
.
In November 2016, Ms. Ecker was named a Member of the Order of Canada for being a leader in the financial industry.

Janet Ecker was a Cabinet Minister in the Government of Mike Harris (who was succeeded by Ernie Eves). She was part of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party…. which now back in power, headed by Doug Ford.

Vincent Gasparro (Director)
.
Mr. Gasparro is currently the Managing Director, Corporate Development & Clean Energy Finance, at Vancity Community Investment Bank. Previously he served as the Principal Secretary in the Office of the Mayor of Toronto and held various roles in private equity with Lynx Equity Ltd. and its affiliates. Prior to that Mr. Gasparro served as Special Assistant in the Office of the Prime Minister. Mr. Gasparro is a graduate of York University (BA), earned an MSc from the London School of Economics and an MBA from the Villanova School of Business in Philadelphia.

Gasparro worked in the Office of the Mayor of Toronto under John Tory. He also worked in the Prime Minister’s Office under Paul Martin. Martin was succeeded by Dion, Ignatieff…. and now Justin Trudeau.

Andrew MacLeod (Director)

Mr. MacLeod also currently serves as a Director on the board for Waterfront Toronto and Communitech. Mr. MacLeod is a graduate of Western University (BA).

This could be entirely coincidental, but BlackBerry did get a large contract to build a national contact tracing app for Canada. The Postmedia Directors are very connected.

Graham Savage (Director)
.
Mr. Savage is a corporate director, and from 1997 to 2007 he was Chairman and Founding Partner of Callisto Capital, a private equity firm.

Savage was a Senior Officer at Rogers. Guess who else worked there? John Tory, former head of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party, and current Mayor of Toronto. Tory is a former President and CEO of Rogers Media.

This is just a few of them. It doesn’t exactly look like these are arm’s length relationships.

In return for being able to get around millions in debt, Postmedia has had to give up 98% of the stock value to its creditors. Or rather, it allowed so much stock to be printed that current shareholders saw their investments plunge. This came from a court approved arrangement in 2016. The case file number is CV-16-11476-00CL.

8. Postmedia Lobbying Federal Government

Interestingly, Postmedia had lobbied the Federal Government over the years. One of the subjects was allowing foreign investment into the company.

As an aside, one of the firms lobbying was Capital Hill Group, the same firm that is helping G4S get more security contracts from Governments.

9. What Does All This Mean For Canada?

All of these subsidies and political connections may explain why this media conglomerate does no real journalism surrounding this “pandemic”. The Directors and various politicians are all connected, and no one wants to lose their tax subsidies.

It’s Canadians who lose. Instead of acting as a check on government overreach, media talking heads like Brian Lilley are all too willing to parrot back the talking points they are handed.

CV #25(D): Meet Capital Hill Group, The Lobbying Firm Pushing For G4S Contracts

David Angus, the President of Capital Hill Group, is lobbying Ottawa on behalf of G4S Secure Solutions. This is a security company that also is involved in intelligence gathering, and running detention centers, among other things. See this article for background information. There is more than meets the eye.

3. CHG Lobbying Ottawa For G4S

The President of CHG, David Angus, worked in the Prime Minister’s Office when Brian Mulroney was PM. Admittedly, this is rather strange. G4S has 24 registrations filed with the Office of the Lobbying Registry since 2015, but has made only 1 communication with public officials in that time? Right….

4. CHG Lobbying Ontario For G4S

It seems that Capital Hill Group has been lobbying Ontario for work as well. Currently, Ontario is run by Doug Ford. This man calls himself a “conservative”, despite stripping people of their livelihoods.

5. CHG Lobbying British Columbia For G4S

Yes, this dates back to March, but Erin Iverson did meet with officials in B.C., on behalf of G4S. The company “is a major provider of security services in Canada and around the world”.

6. David Angus, CHG President

Prior to joining CHG, David was the caucus liaison to former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, and served as a ministerial staffer in the Ontario Progressive Conservative government of Bill Davis. He has extensive expertise in procurement, defence, health and transport policy, and has consistently delivered results to clients in these areas.

At CHG, David has nurtured lasting relationships within federal, provincial and municipal governments. His government relations expertise has received public recognition in various publications including the North American Directory of “Who’s Who”, The Hill Times, and the Toronto Star.

David Angus, the President of Capital Hill Group, has extensive political ties both in Ontario, and Federally.

7. Ken Stewart, CHG Senior Consultant

Business and politics have been the cornerstone of Ken’s career for over 40 years. Ken got his start by answering mail in Pierre Trudeau’s office. He then went on to play a key communications role in the Trudeau Government’s “6&5” anti-inflation campaign under Finance Minister Marc Lalonde, and, later, travelled to every Ontario town, village and hamlet as Special Assistant to Ontario Premier David Peterson.

In 2003, as Director of Sales for Advanced Utility Systems Corporation, a highly successful software firm in Canadian and U.S. energy markets, he built upon his earlier career successes and continued to accumulate substantial sales achievements. He then returned to Queen’s Park as Chief of Staff to the Minister of Education in 2006, where he was responsible for staffing, briefings and stakeholder relations.

Based in CHG’s Toronto office since 2007, Ken leads a highly successful lobbying practice where his business and politics experience has guided clients through regulatory, legislative and procurement challenges. His insight and perspective into technology and government sales markets have earned him an outstanding reputation as one of Ontario’s top procurement lobbyists.

Stewart has extensive connections to Liberals, both Provincially and Federally. That these ties date back to the eighties.

8. Aaron Scheewe, CHG Managing Director

Aaron spent over a decade in Ottawa working in Parliament, holding senior positions within the offices of the Right Honourable Stephen Harper, former Prime Minister of Canada and several of his Cabinet colleagues including the Honourable John Baird, the Honourable Tony Clement and the Honourable Gary Goodyear.

During his time in Ottawa Aaron to contributed to key government files including the significant international crises in Afghanistan (2008/09), Libya and Syria (2011/12), helping to manage large pockets of stimulus funding under Canada’s Economic Development Action Plan (2009-11) and setting-up the first suite of programs for the billion-dollar Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario. Aaron also helped the government become more streamlined in its processes by playing a key part in the Deficit Reduction Action Plan that saw billions in ongoing savings during the Conservative Party of Canada?s 2011-15 majority government.

Aaron Scheewe has long and extensive ties to the Conservative Party of Canada. He has actually been part of Harper’s Government.

9. Nathan Scheewe, CHG Senior Consultant

His extensive public sector experience includes working as a political staffer in Ottawa, where he held key senior positions within multiple Cabinet Ministers’ offices. He has a strong understanding of the legislative and regulatory processes. Nathan has also worked within the bureaucracy of the Ontario government and has a solid understanding of the important relationship between a Minister’s office and the department.

In addition to his public sector experience, Nathan served as the Manager, Government Relations for Alectra Utilities Corporation – the largest municipally owned utility in Ontario – where he managed a robust team and established and maintained positive and productive relationships with elected officials within the municipalities of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, and key political staff at Queen’s Park. During his time there, Nathan made significant contributions that helped drive the successful merger of Alectra Utilities and Guelph Hydro.

More and more political connections.
Are we starting to see a pattern here?

10. Erin Iverson, CHG Managing Director

With over 15 years of experience in federal politics, Erin brings an innate ability for relationship building and a superior understanding of the inner workings of government, issues management, parliamentary affairs and strategic communications.

During her time spent on Parliament Hill, Erin held senior positions within the Government including the Prime Minister’s Office, and the offices of the Minister of Transport, and Minister of Labour. Erin has also worked in opposition politics and is no stranger to both minority and majority government scenarios.

As a political strategist, Erin has worked on numerous federal election campaigns both from the CPC War Room and on local campaigns; and, also had the opportunity to serve as the Executive Assistant to the Right Honourable Stephen Harper’s transition team. Throughout her career, Erin has been known for her ability to make connections and provide sound advice on a wide variety of issues.

Over 15 years in Federal politics, with the Conservative Party, and its predecessor, the Canadian Alliance. How’s that for a dated reference?

11. Matthew Conway, CHG Senior Consultant

As a Government of Quebec consultant, Matthew has over a decade of experience in the public sector. He has served as an advisor to several Ministers, including the Honourable Caroline Mulroney, Honourable Tony Clement, Honourable James Moore, Honourable Jean-Pierre Blackburn, and the Honourable Senator Claude Carignan.

During his time at Queen’s Park, Matthew led Francophone Affairs for Minister Mulroney including reaching a deal with the Government of Canada for the joint financing of a French Language University in Toronto, helping develop the framework for an upcoming Francophone Economic Development Plan and led the preparations for the modernization of the upcoming French Language Services Act.

During his time in Ottawa, Matthew served as Press Secretary to the President of the Treasury Board, Tony Clement, handling day to day media relations and highly sensitive issues. He also served as a policy advisor as well as a legal and political researcher to the Honourable Senator Claude Carignan during his term as Leader of the Government in the Senate.

Conway’s profile speaks for itself. Numerous connections to the Federal House of Commons, the Senate, the Ontario and Quebec Legislatures as well.

12. Tara Beauport, CHG Associate Consultant

Tara is a bilingual young professional who brings a diverse range of experience working within the Government, politics, and national associations. She began her career working as a coordinator at the Liberal Party of Canada’s HQ in Ottawa. While there, she developed a deep understanding of issues management, volunteer engagement, and public outreach.

With a little over 5 years of experience, Tara has thrived in creating lasting, positive connections in her roles. During her time in Government, she worked at the Privy Council Office on the Clerk’s Communications team, providing strategic communications support and social media expertise during the transition period of PCO Clerk Mr. Michael Wernick and Deputy Clerk Ms. Catherine Blewett.

She also worked within the agricultural sector at Egg Farmers of Canada, serving as a Public Relations Intern and providing instrumental support on a variety of public outreach and government relations events like the Downtown Diner and Breakfast on the Hill. Tara joins the CHG Ottawa team after working as an Outreach Coordinator at MP Catherine McKenna’s community office, having coordinated meetings for MP McKenna with local stakeholders and constituents as well as providing communications and event management support.

Beauport has ties to the Liberal Party of Canada, Catherin McKenna more specifically, and to Michael Wernick of the Privy Council.

13. Jonathan Ballingall, CHG Consultant

In 2013, Jonathan Ballingall, as a member of the Office of the Minister of Foreign Trade, was lobbied to set up a Canadian Branch of the China Construction Bank.

Is he related to Jeff Ballingall of Canada Proud and Ontario Proud? Those groups helped install Erin O’Toole and Doug Ford to their current positions. Or is this just a bizarre coincidence?

14. Dennis Burnside, CHG Senior Consultant

Dennis is an experienced political strategist and public policy expert who leverages more than a decade of experience gained in previous roles within federal and provincial governments to provide strategic advice and targeted engagement strategies to clients.

Prior to joining CHG, Dennis worked as the senior political advisor to the Minister of Indigenous and Municipal Relations in the Government of Manitoba, before assuming a position as a Project Manager at the Priorities and Planning Secretariat of Cabinet where he helped usher major government priorities from the policy development phase through to implementation.

Dennis also worked as a political strategist on Parliament Hill, serving elected officials in a variety of areas including committee preparation and management, legislative development, research, strategic communications and community-level engagement.

He has served in variety of election campaign roles as well, including as a campaign manager, at both the provincial and federal levels in Manitoba, Alberta, and Ontario.

Interestingly, G4S Security “isn’t” listed in the Manitoba Lobbying Registry, but was still able to land a bid back in November. However, this may explain it, as Dennis Burnside has held roles within the Manitoba Government. Perhaps he decided to call in a favour?! He has also worked for Alberta, Ontario, and Federally.

15. G4S Acquired By Allied Universal/Blackstone

Some developments on G4S Security itself: On December 8, 2020, it was announced that Allied Universal (a U.S. company) would be purchasing G4S (a British Company). Allied itself was bought out by the Blackstone Group in 2008. Blackstone is a very large investment firm based out of New York. Without going into too much detail, it’s a huge.

The Right Honourable Brian Mulroney
Former Prime Minister of Canada
.
The Right Honourable Brian Mulroney is a member of the board of directors of Blackstone. Mr. Mulroney is a senior partner and international business consultant for the Montreal law firm, Ogilvy Renault LLP/ S.E.N.C.R.C., s.r.l.
.
Prior to joining Ogilvy Renault, Mr. Mulroney was the eighteenth Prime Minister of Canada from 1984 to 1993 and leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada from 1983 and 1993. He served as the Executive Vice President of the Iron Ore Company of Canada and President beginning in 1977. Prior to that, Mr. Mulroney served on the Clich’e Commission of Inquiry in 1974.
.
Mr. Mulroney is a member of the Board of Directors of Archer Daniels Midland Company, Barrick Gold Corporation, Quebecor Inc., Quebecor World Inc., the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation and Wyndham Worldwide Corporation.

As an added bonus, Brian Mulroney, the former Prime Minister of Canada, is on the Board of Directors of Blackstone Group.

16. What Does This Mean For Canada?

The Blackstone Group (through Allied Universal) owns G4S, the company that Brian Pallister hired to police parts of Manitoba. This was “in the name of safety”, of course. What if Pallister decides that G4S needs to detain and imprison people — which they have done professionally? What if they run intelligence and surveillance on Manitobans? See the previous piece.

Depending on how aggressive the lobbying is, more parts of Canada could end up like this. But hey, it’s all about fighting a virus, right?

Scary times.

Who’s Pulling Steven Guilbeault’s Strings? (Part 1: Eco-Movement)

Steven Guilbeault, the new Heritage Minister of Canada, was arrested in 2001 for climbing the CN Tower. While obviously an eco-supporter, there is more to him than meets the eye.

1. Debunking The Climate Change Scam

The entire climate change industry, (and yes, it is an industry) is a hoax perpetrated by the people in power, run by international bankers. Plenty has also been covered on the climate scam, the propaganda machine in action, and some of the court documents in Canada. Carbon taxes are just a small part of the picture, and conservatives are intentionally sabotaging their court cases.

In 2018, Équiterre took in some $5 million in revenue. The majority of which went to the group’s employees. Incoming money has been high for quite a while.

Équiterre welcomes the regulatory tightening in the federal government’s new climate plan, but reiterates the need for new and more ambitious targets – an obligation in order to face the climate crisis.

“Will we get it right this time – will we finally meet our targets? Let’s hope! The European Union just unveiled its new target of reducing GHGs by at least 55% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. For its part, Canada is still working within a scenario of a 30% reduction in emissions by 2030 compared to 2005 levels, despite its intention to improve this target. Today’s announcement is progress in our current scenario, but our current scenario is not adapted to the climate emergency,” says Marc-André Viau, Director of Government Relations at Équiterre.

One has to wonder why Guilbeault was selected as Heritage Minister, instead of Climate Change Minister. This is clearly where his group’s passion is.

6. David Suzuki Foundation Lobbies Guilbeault

The David Suzuki Foundation has lobbied Guilbeault for a “green budget”, and for the 2020, 2050 agendas. Interesting that they also list Implementation of Canada’s Policy for the Conservation of Wild Pacific Salmon in their profile.

7. Climate Action Network Lobbies Guilbeault

Climate Action Network is advocating for the destruction of the oil & gas sector by cutting off potential subsidies and tax breaks. They also are on board with the climate change agenda.

8. Environmental Defence Canada Lobbies

Environmental Defense Canada has also lobbied Guilbeault on a number of environmental initiatives.

9. Cycle Capital Management, Lobbying

Subject Matter Details
.
Legislative Proposal, Bill or Resolution
Representations made so that orientations are taken in order to possibly authorize a mixed real estate project (residential in condo or rental, convenience store and offices) near the Bonaventure Expressway in the Ville-Marie borough (Bassin Peel sector, between Wellington, Mill and Bridge streets).
.
Legislative Proposal, Bill or Resolution, Policies or Program
Representations made to the Government of Canada in order to obtain the creation of a program or action plan for its participation in the financing of a fourth investment fund to be formed by Cycle Capital Management and whose mission would be to investments in the clean technology sector.

Guilbeault went to work for Cycle Capital Management, a “green investment” firm. One of their lobbying goals was the funding in the green technology sector, which they wanted taxpayers to finance.

It’s also interesting to note that CCM was lobbying the Prime Minister’s Office as recently as 2019. Guess what? Now, one of their people, Steven Guilbeault, is in Cabinet, and has direct access to the PMO. That is pretty convenient.

10. Did Guilbeault Really Leave The Movement?

Steven Guilbeault, one of the most well-known faces in Quebec’s environmental movement, has announced he is leaving his job, but not abandoning the cause.

“I’ve made the very hard decision to leave Équiterre after being, in a way or another with the organization for 25 years, not because I don’t like working at Équiterre and not because I don’t love the people who are here,” he said during a news conference Friday.

Guilbeault, who co-founded Équiterre and has been a senior director since 2007, says he is stepping down because he wants to explore “new elements of the fight against climate change.”

He is going to work with Cycle capital management, which he called one of the biggest fund managers for clean technology in Canada.

He will also work as a public relations advisor with Copticom, a company specializing in green and social economy issues.

He and Sidney Ribaux co-founded Équiterre in 1993, a citizens’ group that aimed to find solutions to issues such as pollution and large-scale industrialization.

Ribaux said Guilbeault is an incredible communicator, and credited him with making environmental issues more accessible.

A legitimate question needs to be asked: has Steven Guilbeault actually left the movement? Or is he using his position as a Cabinet Minister to implement policies that he couldn’t otherwise have done? Is he really a public servant, or an operative who’s infiltrated the Government?

Stay tuned for Part 2. There is even more to Guilbeault than what we are being told publicly.

CV #4(C): Crestview Strategy’s Ashton Arsenault Takes Over Lobbying For GAVI

The Gates Foundation lobbies the Canadian Government, but not directly. It uses proxies. GAVI (the Global Vaccine Alliance), is heavily funded by Gates, and it employs a lobbying firm called Crestview Strategy. Crestview was co-founded by Rob Silver, husband of Katie Telford, and is well connected. Lobbyists are dispatched to Ottawa to try to get more taxpayer money.

The most recent to sign up is Ashton Arsenault.

Keep in mind, lobbying is legal (for the most part), as long as all meetings are documented, and available to the public. Doesn’t make it any less underhanded though.

1. Ashton Arsenault Latest Shill For GAVI

Ashton Arsenault is a senior consultant with Crestview Strategy based out of the Ottawa office.

Prior to joining Crestview, Ashton worked as a political aid on Parliament Hill where he was responsible for parliamentary affairs and issues management for the Minister of National Revenue. Prior to that, he worked as a legislative researcher in the Official Opposition Office in Prince Edward Island. He continues to volunteer in electoral politics at the federal level.

Ashton has been involved in politics for several years, serving as a campaign manager for a Conservative candidate in the 2015 General Election. As well, he served as the University of Prince Edward Island’s Chair of Council from 2011-2012.

Ashton holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Prince Edward Island and a Master of Political Management from Carleton University in Ottawa.

Zakery Blais worked for (Liberal) MP David Lametti, and Jason Clarke volunteered for (Liberal) candidates in Ottawa for the 2015 election. Arsenault has ties to the Conservative Party of Canada, showing that this is not simply a partisan issue.

Make no mistake, lobbying is a very effective way for corporations to get what they want. In total, GAVI has secured over $1 billion in funding, from different administrations.

2. Arsenault Also Represents Medicago

Arsenault is also lobbying on behalf of Medicago, which is working with GlaxoSmithKline to develop a plant-based vaccine for the coronavirus.

3. Arsenault Frequently A CPC Talking Head

Ashton Arsenault regularly appears on television in order to sell CPC talking points to a gullible crowd. This is, of course, not unique to Conservatives. All of these “debates” on screen are arranged to address pre-planned scripts for the public.

Arsenault has donated several times to the Conservative Party of Canada, but the amounts aren’t enough to draw much attention.

4. Arsenault Replaces Zakery Blais

Zakery Blais was previously a lobbyist for Crestview Strategy, on behalf of GAVI. He appears to have since left the firm. Blais also worked for David Lametti (yes, the sitting Attorney General), back when he was a Parliamentary Secretary.

5. What Else Crestview Strategy Does

Drive winning arguments.
.
Crestview Strategy effectively represents the interests of corporations, not-for-profits and industry associations to achieve results with governments around the world.
.
No longer is a winning outcome based on ‘who you know’ or the ‘magic meeting’. It is about contributing to the policy process, presenting a case that is supported by authentic community voices, verified impact and compelling insight. And getting in front of the right decision makers and opinion leaders to make that case.

Drive winning engagement.
.
We build and run campaigns that mobilize support and impact change for both political and corporate clients.
.
Mobilization campaigns are premised on the simple fact that for elected officials, the single most influential voice in shaping their decision is that of their local voters, influencers, and community leaders.
.
The benefits of mobilization go beyond just a one-off campaign. The long-term goal of mobilization is to increase engagement potential, provide greater value for members, and to increase the share of voice and influence outcomes.

Keep in mind that firms like Crestview Strategy employ operatives who cover multiple parties. By doing this, it ensures that influence peddling will be effective, regardless of who officially sits in power. It’s important to note that few politicians actually make their own decisions.
