Although the lobbying reports found are from around 20 years ago, they show B’nai Brith had a persistent interest in lobbying Parliament on a variety of topics.

4. B’nai Brith’s Anti-Free Speech Agenda

Also included is the letter to the Prime Minister.

Quote: Among the main priorities also raised with the Prime Minister are:

  • Ensuring that Canada’s new Anti-Racism Strategy will address concerns of and threats to religious minorities, including the Jewish community.
  • Pursuing standardized and mandatory education curricula on antisemitism and the Holocaust, in collaboration with the provinces and territories.
  • Creating a federal position to coordinate domestic action on antisemitism, working with a special envoy to combat antisemitism globally.
  • Fully implementing the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) Working Definition of Antisemitism, as adopted by the federal government in June, and launching a program to educate Canadians about it.
  • Adopting the recommendations made in November by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief and its landmark report on antisemitism.

“Antisemitism must be addressed through a national effort that strengthens our society and promotes unity,” said Michael Mostyn, Chief Executive Officer of B’nai Brith Canada. “Given the importance of federal leadership, and the beginning of a brand new Parliament, raising the concerns of our community at this time is essential. [End quote]

In a practical sense, how is this different than Iqra Khalid wanting to make “Islamophobia” illegal? The Islamists and the Zionists are using essentially the same tactics.

5. Gov’t Adopts IHRA Def’n Of Anitsemitism

Antisemitism
Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.
Footnote 2

Of course, footnote #2 comes from:

International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance “Working Definition of Antisemitism”. For further information, visit: https://www.holocaustremembrance.com/working-definition-antisemitism.

But don’t worry kids, it’s not binding.

6. What Is IHRA Definition Of Anitsemitism?

Does it sound scary? Well, here is the definition of anti-Semitism IHRA provides:

To guide IHRA in its work, the following examples may serve as illustrations:

Manifestations might include the targeting of the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity. However, criticism of Israel similar to that leveled against any other country cannot be regarded as antisemitic.

Antisemitism frequently charges Jews with conspiring to harm humanity, and it is often used to blame Jews for “why things go wrong.” It is expressed in speech, writing, visual forms and action, and employs sinister stereotypes and negative character traits.

Contemporary examples of antisemitism in public life, the media, schools, the workplace, and in the religious sphere could, taking into account the overall context, include, but are not limited to:

-Calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews in the name of a radical ideology or an extremist view of religion.

-Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective — such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.

-Accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, or even for acts committed by non-Jews.

-Denying the fact, scope, mechanisms (e.g. gas chambers) or intentionality of the genocide of the Jewish people at the hands of National Socialist Germany and its supporters and accomplices during World War II (the Holocaust).
Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.

-Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations.

-Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor.

-Applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.
Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis.

-Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.

-Holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel.

-Antisemitic acts are criminal when they are so defined by law (for example, denial of the Holocaust or distribution of antisemitic materials in some countries).

Criminal acts are antisemitic when the targets of attacks, whether they are people or property – such as buildings, schools, places of worship and cemeteries – are selected because they are, or are perceived to be, Jewish or linked to Jews.

Antisemitic discrimination is the denial to Jews of opportunities or services available to others and is illegal in many countries.

What a lot of projection here. And what an attempt to criminalise things that are in fact true:
(a) A lot of Jews “are” more loyal to Israel than where they live
(b) Why can’t the Holocaust be questioned? Every other event in human history is allowed to be questioned, but not this apparently.
(c) Nothing wrong with Jews having their own place. The problem arises in the double standard hypocrisy, where Jews try to open borders of OTHER nations.
(d) Making dehumanizing or stereotypical comments? Sure that won’t ever be abused.

7. Other Media On A-S Definition Acceptance

From the Jerusalum Post:

The Minister of Canadian Heritage and Multiculturalism, Pablo Rodríguez, announced on Tuesday that the Canadian government intends to adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) definition of antisemitism as part of its anti-racism strategy.

From the Jewish News Syndicate

“Canada adopting IHRA’s definition of antisemitism is an important symbolic and declaratory move,” said NGO Monitor founder and president Gerald Steinberg. “We hope that the next steps will pertain to its implementation within Canadian policy, including regarding Canadian international aid and support of NGOs.”

B’nai Brith Canada labeled the IHRA standard “the most universally accepted and expertly driven definition of anti-Semitism available today,” and one that “enjoys unprecedented consensus.”

8. B’nai Brith’s 8-Pt Plan On Antisemitism

bnaibrith.8.point.plan

[1] INSTITUTE DEDICATED HATE CRIME UNITS IN EVERY MAJOR CITY The lack of investment in hate crime-specifi c units contributes to both a perceived sense of impunity for the purveyors of hate crimes and generates frustration on the part of affected communities. Dedicated hate crimes units could produce more substantive results in the field.

[2] PROVIDE ENHANCED TRAINING FOR HATE CRIMES OFFICERS What often appears to be a clear-cut case of a hate crime can be interpreted differently among police services. A standard understanding of what constitutes a hate crime is critical, as well as proper liaison functions between police services and civil society organizations representing affected communities, such as the League for Human Rights.

[3] PUBLISH THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL’S GUIDELINES FOR SECTIONS 318 AND 319 The Attorney-General’s decision-making process on hate propaganda prosecutions is not public and therefore open to charges of political bias. B’nai Brith believes revealing the internal guidelines elucidating this process will help the public know when to submit complaints to law enforcement, and clarify what is and is not legal.

[4] DECLARE A ZERO-TOLERANCE APPROACH TO GOVERNMENT FUNDING OF ANTISEMITISM Government funding has again found its way to organizations that have promoted antisemitism in the past. Government must be vigilant when dispensing public funds to such organizations, and take swift action when such instances come to its attention, including an immediate withdrawal of all publicly-provided funds.

[5] INTRODUCE ANTI-SLAPP LEGISLATION IN ALL PROVINCES AND TERRITORIES Only B.C., Ontario and Quebec have enacted legislation against Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation, or “anti-SLAPP” legislation, which is meant to prevent frivolous libel lawsuits designed to dissuade groups engaging in issues of public interest by using lawsuits to intimidate and deter critique or inquiry. B’nai Brith encourages all provinces and territories to enact this legislation so this protection can be extended to the benefit of all Canadians

[6] HOLD UNIVERSITIES ACCOUNTABLE FOR CAMPUS ANTISEMITISM Universities recently surfaced as significant breeding grounds for antisemitism in Canada, including through an increase in far-left activism against Israel. Universities must do more to combat antisemitism, as do provincial ministries of education, including enforcing existing antidiscrimination policies and ensuring that appropriate disciplinary measures are employed.

[7] ADOPT A NATIONAL ACTION PLAN FOR ANTISEMITISM Canada must adopt a National Action Plan to Combat Antisemitism, as have France and Norway, in recognition that adequate resources must be offered to strategically combat anti-Jewish rhetoric. Such a plan would involve all levels of government, which could help law enforcement, communities, and schools prevent and respond to antisemitism.

[8] DEVELOP AN ACTION PLAN TO COUNTER ONLINE HATE B’nai Brith believes that the federal government, along with social media platforms and other stakeholders, can work in tandem to establish a viable strategic plan to counter online hate. Government must examine how to strengthen laws against perpetrators of online hate and improve law enforcement training in how to respond.

9. Ontario And Bill 186

EXPLANATORY NOTE
The Bill requires the Government of Ontario to be guided by the working definition of antisemitism and the list of illustrative examples of it, adopted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance plenary on May 26, 2016, when it interprets Acts, regulations and policies designed to protect Ontarians from discrimination and hate amounting to antisemitism.

The Bill also amends the Legislation Act, 2006 to adopt that working definition.
Bill 168 2019
An Act to combat antisemitism
Preamble
.
Antisemitism is a multi-faceted problem that requires a multi-faceted strategy, encompassing a range of ministries and agencies. For that reason, it is desirable to require the Government of Ontario to implement a whole-of-government approach in combating antisemitism. As part of that approach, it is desirable to apply a consistent interpretation of Acts, regulations and policies designed to protect Ontarians from discrimination and hate amounting to antisemitism.
.
Therefore, Her Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Ontario, enacts as follows:
.
Interpretation
1 In interpreting Acts, regulations and policies designed to protect Ontarians from discrimination and hate amounting to antisemitism, the Government of Ontario shall be guided by the working definition of antisemitism and the list of illustrative examples of it adopted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance plenary on May 26, 2016.
Legislation Act, 2006 amendment
.
2 Section 87 of the Legislation Act, 2006 is amended by adding the following definition:
“antisemitism” has the meaning set out in the working definition of antisemitism and the list of illustrative examples of it adopted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance plenary on May 26, 2016; (antisémitisme”)
Commencement
.
3 This Act comes into force on the day it receives Royal Assent.
Short title
4 The short title of this Act is the Combating Antisemitism Act, 2019.

bill.168.antisemitism

Of course, the Ontario Government is a “Conservative” majority, headed by “populist” Doug Ford. Wasn’t aware that passing anti-free speech laws was a conservative value.

B’nai Brith was a main player in getting this legislation pushed.

10. B’nai Brith Is Anti-Free Speech

The above is just a sample of what the group is up to.

And yes, B’nai Brith is a huge supporter of aiding mass migration to the West, and using our countries as dumping grounds. Israel is off limits of course – More migrants for thee, but none for me.

However, that will be a post all on its own.

As for all of the players trying to undermine Canadian sovereignty, let’s name them.

11. Who Are These Open Borders NGOs?

(1) AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL
(2) B’NAI BRITH
(3) BRIDGES NOT BORDERS
(4) CANADIAN ASSOCIATION OF REFUGEE LAWYERS
(5) CANADIAN COUNCIL FOR REFUGEES
(6) CANADIAN COUNCIL OF CHURCHES
(7) CENTER FOR ISRAEL AND JEWISH AFFAIRS
(8) JEWISH REFUGEE ACTION NETWORK
(9) PLATTSBURGH CARES
(10) SOLIDARITY ACROSS BORDERS

Honourable mention: ex-Israeli Ambassador David Berger

This is by no means a complete list, but a starting point. One will immediately notice a common thread that runs between most of these groups. However, not everyone is willing to address that.

Anthony Furey (see above tweet) writes for the Toronto Sun, and has contributed to True North Canada, Candice Malcolm’s “charity”.

While Furey clearly knows that the efforts are coordinated to smuggle these people into Canada, Furey (and other outfits like Rebel Media) refrain from exposing WHO is behind these efforts. They focus on a symptom, and not the disease.

This is probably because these groups are mainly Jewish, and Furey has a self-preservation instinct. He doesn’t want to hit too close to home, and end his media career.

2. Context For This Article

In the first piece, we looked at the extended pattern of political lobbying by CIJA, including Senators, and MPs in the House of Commons from all parties. Over 1200 “communications reports” took place over the last 20 years, or about 1 every 6 days.

Period (2019-09-01 to 2020-01-14)

The second article covered the agenda that CIJA was pushing. Beyond generic business interests, CIJA is pushing an anti-free speech agenda. “Hate speech” according to this group, is essentially anything Jews don’t like and can claim to be offended by.

In fact, CIJA has, for many years, been lobbying the Federal Government to make licensing of media personalities mandatory. This is so the Israeli lobby can claim “hate speech” to shut down people and views that they disagree with. It can also be used to silence those who speak uncomfortable truths.

The third article got into the “nuts and bolts” of the organization, including looking at its corporate documents. It’s the paperwork that typical corporations have, but that are not readily available if you don’t know where to look.

Now let’s get into the political and financial ties. While it is obvious that CIJA isn’t the only Jewish organization in play here, they do still play a prominent role.

3. Mozuud Freedom Foundation

mozuud.3rd.party.return
mozuud.directors
mozuud.certificate.of.incorporation
mozuud.form.4022

The Mozuud Freedom Foundation started out as a human rights organization that advocated for free speech, democracy, the rule of law and support of Israel. It recently decided to enter the political fray, mostly on the side of small-c conservative candidates and parties.

Salim Mansur’s name came up often in a telephone interview with Weisdorf. Mansur, a professor of political science at the University of Western Ontario and an immigrant from the Punjab region, is vying for a parliamentary seat in the riding of London North Centre for the People’s Party of Canada (PPC).

Mozuud is in the process of arranging an appearance in Toronto by PPC Leader Maxime Bernier, the former Conservative leadership candidate who left the Tories to create a new party.

“I don’t disagree with any of Bernier’s planks. His policies – I think he’s essentially on the right track,” Weisdorf said.

To get their message out, Mozuud will send email blasts, place ads on radio and in print, and employ other means to influence the campaign.

Weisdorf, who described himself as a “Harper Conservative,” said he’d like to see candidates address a number of issues, such as the BDS campaign against Israel, anti-Zionism on campus, which has morphed into anti-Semitism, the funding of UNRWA, the UN agency that has been accused of siding with Hamas, media subsidization, which Mozuud believes is anti-democratic, and M-103, the parliamentary motion condemning Islamophobia, which Mozuud believes restricts free speech.

This group was awarded third party status by Elections Canada, meaning that they are free to promote their “Israel first” agenda in Canadian politics.

Check out their 3rd Party financials
mozuud.3rd.party.return

If Salim Mansur is such a pro-Israel Muslim, it could explain why Muslim groups don’t want him around. They see him as an infiltrator.

Also interesting that they would be eager to see Maxime Bernier, who now “identifies” as a populist. You can’t be Canada-First and shill for Israel at the same time.

4. Project Abraham (Previously Mozuud)

Project Abraham, previously the Mozuud Resettlement and Support for Victims of Persecution, is a Jewish group aiming to being people to the West.

5. Mozuud’s Political Preferences

Salim Mansur. London North Centre, Ontario (PPC)– Salim Mansur has been on the front line against extremists for many decades now. As a well-respected professor of political science at Western University, Dr. Mansur has written several books on the threat of Islamism including Islam’s Predicament: Perspectives of a Dissident Muslim and The Qur’an Problem and Islamism: Reflections of a Dissident Muslim. Dr. Mansur is an outspoken advocate for freedom of speech both on campus and in the public arena.

Chani Aryeh-Bain. Eglinton-Lawrence, Ontario (CPC)– Chani Aryeh-Bain is a school teacher, small business owner, community activist and life-long resident of Eglinton-Lawrence where she is raising five children along with her husband David. As a small business owner, Chani understands the important role small business play in bringing jobs and prosperity to out neighbourhoods. Through her work supporting local charities Chani is passionate about the need to increase affordability for families and seniors. With your support she hopes to be able to provide a voice for our community in Ottawa.

Garnett Genuis. Sherwood Park- Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta (CPC)– It is because of Garnett Genuis that a motion passed in parliament to recommend that the Islamic Republic’s Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) be declared a terrorist organization. Although the motion got bipartisan support, the IRGC has not yet been added to the list of terrorist organizations. The Islamic Republic is the world’s leader in state-sponsored terrorism, sent through the arms of the IRGC’s Quds Force. Hamas, Hezbollah, Houthi rebels in Yemen, militants in Nigeria, Bosnia, Sudan and elsewhere have been traced back to the Iranian regime’s ideological paramilitary organization. While some in the media are trying to push the “Iran Deal” and normalization of the Islamic Republic as apolitical good, MPs like Garnett Genuis are greatly needed.

Tahir Gora. Mississauga-Malton, Ontario (PPC)– Tahir Gora, a Muslim of Pakistani origin, has been one of the most important voices against Islamist extremists in Canada. He played an integral role in defeating Sharia courts in Ontario. From 2003-2006, when Ontario was debating whether or not to allow Sharia courts to set up inside the Muslim communities, it was Tahir and his TV station TAGtv that gave a voice to the moderates and liberals within the Muslim community, fighting back against the Islamist push to rule over them. For his work, Tahir has shown the resilience to stand up to multiple threats, including one from the Pakistani ISI made against him.

David Haskell. Cambridge, Ontario (PPC)– When Lindsay Shepard, a teaching assistant at Laurier University, was brought in front of a panel of far-Left inquisitors for the crime of showing a YouTube clip of Jordan Peterson’s appearance on public television, the entire faculty turned their back on her and free speech. All except David Haskell. Haskell was the only professor at Laurier to stand up for the value of free expression, despite the opposition of his peers. Canadian politics needs people willing to stand up for Canadian values, even if it makes them unpopular to certain elites.

Ghada Melek. Mississauga-Streetsville, Ontario (CPC)– Ghada Melek is currently under fire for the crime of criticizing Islamists. Certain organizations are mad that when the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) put up bus stop adds promoting the hijab, Melek offered the other point of view. This being, that the hijab is not a tool of female empowerment. In the Sharia state of Iran, women are beaten or imprisoned for the refusal to wear it. It is strange that no one motioned the questionable actions of the ICNA, like the fact that they endorsed Al Qaeda’s chief recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki up until 2010, and the fact that they currently have literature on their website promoting sexual slavery. http://icnacanada.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Syllabus-for-the-Month-of-March-for-MGAs-and-Workers.pdf

Pierre Poilievre. Carleton, Ontario (CPC)– Too often in politics an MP will back down at the slightest fear of media pressure from a fabricated “controversy”. When Poilievre stated the obvious, that terrorists were responsible for terrorism, not American society, as Justin Trudeau had suggested over the Boston Bombers being made to feel “left out of society”, he was attacked by the mainstream media. Instead of backtracking, he called out the “Liberal pseudo-intellectuals” who contrived this fake controversy against him. For quick proof of his point, could you imagine the reaction if someone said that the primary motivation for the terrorist in Christchurch who massacred the worshipers at the mosque, wasn’t the terrorist or his White Supremacist ideology, but instead New Zealand society for making him feel “left out”.

Interesting that this third party organization supports both CPC and PPC candidates, depending on their views. Can we assume that they are all very much pro-Israel and pro-Zionist?

6. Ex-PM Stephen Harper

Former prime minister Stephen Harper may be a fading star in Canadian politics, but when it comes to Israel, he’s still burning as brightly as ever. He was honoured on Nov. 6, at the official opening of the long-awaited Stephen J. Harper KKL-JNF Hula Valley Visitor and Education Center in the northern Galilee.

Speaking at the event, Harper quoted his late father, who told him that, “No group of people, for its size, has contributed as much (to) humanity, and in so many fields, as have the Jewish people.”

In 2013 the Jewish National Fund (JNF) of Canada thanked him for his unwavering support for Israel and the Jewish people at its annual Negev Dinner in Toronto. According to JNF Canada’s president, Wendy Spatzner, that event was the largest dinner honouring a Canadian prime minister in history. The event raised millions for the Hula Valley visitor centre.

Yes, Stephen Harper is so beloved in ISRAEL, that they built the “Stephen Harper Center” in his honour.

7. Piece By Times Of Israel

This piece by the Times of Israel is a good place to start. Let’s see who will shill for shekels and put Canada last.

The candidates to look out for in the Conservative Party include long-time MPs Peter Kent, Erin O’Toole, and David Sweet. All three have been supporters of Israel and the Jewish community throughout their tenures as MPs and I do not imagine they will stop their much-appreciated advocacy. All have made very positive statements regarding Israel, whenever there is a time that Israel is in some sort of conflict.

Additionally, Garnett Genuis has just served his first term as an MP, however, he also has been outspoken about his support for Israel and the need for peace in the Middle East as a whole. A brand new candidate to keep an eye out on is David Tordjman, who is running in Mount Royal. While he has no experience in federal political office (he does at the municipal level), he too understands the issues facing Israel and the Jewish community.

8. Top CPC Completely Supports Israel

From this B’nai Brith article, it seems that all of the main candidates in the 2016/2017 CPC leadership race all strongly supported Israel.

Even before the race began, and up until now, I have confidently answered that the topic of Israel has been approached by all CPC leadership candidates with uniform levels of support, and that members should focus on other areas of policy that interest them.

One could even argue that former Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s staunch and unequivocal allegiance to Israel has now become a staple of the Conservative party. While Harper’s presence still looms large in areas such as fiscal responsibility and foreign affairs policy, the Conservative approach to Israel possesses a resounding permanence thanks to the historic steadfast support of its previous leader. Israel did come up a few times by candidates vying to replace Harper – but only in a way that mirrors his approach.

Of the top seven candidates – those who have the profile, financial backing and momentum in opinion polling that indicates some likelihood of winning this race – Kevin O’Leary, Maxime Bernier, Kellie Leitch, Andrew Scheer, Michael Chong, Lisa Raitt and Erin O’Toole have each expressed their support of Israel, albeit in different ways.

No real difference here. All of these CPC politicians are cucking for Israel. Did they forget that they are supposed to represent Canada?

  • Kevin O’Leary
  • Maxime Bernier
  • Kellie Leitch
  • Andrew Scheer
  • Michael Chong
  • Lisa Raitt
  • Erin O’Toole

9. John Baird: Director Of CIJA

This was addressed previously, but John Baird is currently a (non-voting) Director for CIJA. Sure, no conflict of interest here

10. Andrew Scheer

OTTAWA, Canada — Canada’s opposition Conservatives said Monday they would follow the US lead and recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel if they beat Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals in the next election in 2019.

“Canada’s Conservatives recognize the obvious fact that Israel, like every other sovereign nation, has a right to determine where its capital is located,” the party said on its website.

As such, a Tory government led by Andrew Scheer “will recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital when we form government in 2019,” it said.

CPC Leader Andrew Scheer also panders to Israel, saying he will support the embassy move if he won the 2019 election.

11. Maxime Bernier

Not very “populist”, is it?

12. Erin O’Toole

Ontario MP Erin O’Toole, a former party foreign affairs critic and MacKay’s rival for the leadership, wasted little time in staking out his position on the subject.

“Under Stephen Harper, Canada stood out as a resolute friend of Israel. Sadly, under Justin Trudeau this strong support has weakened. We need a principled Conservative leader who will make Canada a true friend of Israel once again,” O’Toole said in a statement posted to Facebook on the same day as MacKay’s tweet.

“I have been absolutely clear about this and my views have not changed. Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. The strong presence of the Jewish people there is thousands of years old. But the modern era of Israel – the Knesset is in Jerusalem, the Supreme Court, most of the foreign affairs and government ministries in West Jerusalem.

At a moment when it seemed unclear how much Peter MacKay would pander to Israel, Canada-Last candidate Erin O’Toole made it perfectly clear that Israel is his priority.

13. Peter MacKay

Canada’s Jewish community “knows that the Conservative Party stands shoulder to shoulder with them,” MacKay tweeted. He said that when he was minister of defence, “I made it clear (that) a threat to Israel is a threat to Canada. I will always stand with one of Canada’s closest allies.”

It will be important, MacKay went on, “to consult our diplomatic officials at our embassy in Israel to make the necessary preparations for the move.”

The statement seemed to signal a change of heart, as only the day before, the Montreal-based online publication the Post Millennial quoted MacKay as saying he needed to consult and learn more before deciding whether to move Canada’s embassy from Tel Aviv.

Yes, MacKay will also cuck for Israel, and put Canada last.

14. Garnett Genuis

Garnett Genuis is apparently well loved by the Canadian Jewish News. He called out the Liberals for not putting the IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps), on the terrorism watch list.

In 2018, Genuis attended an 18 person delegation to Israel. And from that experience Genuis wrote:

I recently joined an 18-strong all-party delegation of the Canada-Palestine Parliamentary Friendship Group on a trip to the West Bank. We arrived on March 31st, the day after the first march on the Israel/Gaza border, so the trip was timely and important. The delegation included: Green Party leader Elizabeth May; former Bloc Québécois interim leader Mario Beaulieu; prominent New Democrat MPs Guy Caron, Ruth-Ellen Brosseau, and Peter Julian; a group of (more than usually) left-leaning Liberal MPs; and me – a self-identifying Zionist, the grandson of a Holocaust survivor, and a proud Conservative.

Genuis has also introduced a motion to condemn Iran, and previously introduced a motion to condemn Hamas.

Interesting that a Toronto media personality is supporting an unknown Alberta political candidate. Likewise that a Toronto corporate lawyer would show such an interest.

15. Salim Mansur

Salim Mansur is an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Western Ontario, Canada. He is a former columnist for the London Free Press and the Toronto Sun, and has contributed to various publications including National Review, the Middle East Forum and Frontpagemag. He often presents analysis on the Muslim world, Islam, South Asia and the Middle East.

This is why Muslim groups don’t want Mansur around: because they recognize that he is a Zionist working for Israel. Interesting to note: Middle East Forum, (and Gatestone Institute), are 2 outlets that also are bankrolling Tommy Robinson.

16. Tom Quiggin

Although Quiggin isn’t a politician, this deserves an honourable mention. One might wonder why a Zionist group would be supporting this terrorism expert. It’s not difficult to understand when you actually listen to his work. Quiggin is able to nail Islamists for what they do, but he AVOIDS criticising Israel in the process. One might wonder if he is just a puppet.

17. All Parties Shill For Israel

To be fair, it isn’t exclusively the CPC that shills and cucks for foreign nations. Other parties are guilty of betraying Canadians as well.

Indeed, one way to ensure you get your way is to control the opposition. That seems to be the case here.

18. None Will Stand Up For Canada

This is repulsive. Foreign nations (well, one anyway) have our politicians on strings. But this isn’t being talked about by the media.

2. Context For This Article

In the first piece, we looked at the extended pattern of political lobbying by CIJA, including Senators, and MPs in the House of Commons from all parties. Over 1200 “communications reports” took place over the last 20 years, or about 1 every 6 days.

Period (2019-09-01 to 2020-01-14)

The second article covered the agenda that CIJA was pushing. Beyond generic business interests, CIJA is pushing an anti-free speech agenda. “Hate speech” according to this group, is essentially anything Jews don’t like and can claim to be offended by.

In fact, CIJA has, for many years, been lobbying the Federal Government to make licensing of media personalities mandatory. This is so the Israeli lobby can claim “hate speech” to shut down people and views that they disagree with. It can also be used to silence those who speak uncomfortable truths.

Now, let’s get into the nuts and bolts of this Federal “Non-Profit” Group which is waging war on free speech in Canada.

By no means is this an exhaustive list of the documents available, but it should provide a good indication of what CIJA is, how it operates, and what its goals are.

4. By-Laws: Voting Members

Calgary Jewish Federation 1
Jewish Federation of Edmonton 1
Hamilton Jewish Federation 1
Jewish Federation of Ottawa 3
The Jewish Federation of Victoria and Vancouver Island Society 1
Jewish Federation of Winnipeg Inc. 3
London Jewish Federation 1

UIAC, in trust for the Jewish community of Saskatoon* 1
UIAC, in trust for RJCO (excluding London and Windsor)* 1
the Vancouver Federation 4 Windsor Jewish Federation 1
TOTAL 54

Unsurprisingly, it is weighted so that larger areas like Toronto and Montreal get more voting power. This happens in many organizations.

Worth asking: do all of these branches support CIJA’s overall war on free speech? Do they all support the suppression of ideas they don’t like, and uncomfortable truths?

5. CIJA’s Agenda (Cert Of Continuance)

cija.08.certificate.of.continuance

Now let’s take a look at the actual goals.

Straight from the source. CIJA’s goal (among others) is to influence political affairs in “its” version of what it views as hate speech and anti-Semitism. In other words, ban things that Jews don’t like.

From the first article, it was shown that CIJA had 1248 “communications reports” over the last 20 years. Could it be they have finally made some progress in clamping down on free speech in Canada?

6. Politicians In Bed With Israeli Lobby

Current candidate for leadership of the CPC, Erin O’Toole, openly shills for Israel. See here, and here for just a few examples.

When Maxime Bernier ran for the CPC leadership in 2016/2017, his main critique of the UN is that it was dysfunctional, and spends too much time condemning Israel. Really? For an ex-Foreign Affairs Minister, that is the best you can do?

Two non-voting Directors of CIJA are of a particular interest. One is John Baird, former CPC Cabinet Minister. The other is Dexter Darrell, former Premier of Nova Scotia.

cija.02.directors

Stockwell Day, ex-CPC Cabinet Minister was on CIJA BOD
Sheila Copps, ex-LPC Cabinet Minister was on CIJA BOD

Rafi Brass: Raphael (Rafi) Brass has been a government consultant at Bluesky Strategy Group since April 2015 and worked on Parliament Hill for two Liberal MPs. He will be joining the Board as a delegate from CIJA’s Young Leaders Circle.

Rafi Brass is an ex-staffer, for 2 Liberal MPs.
Now he’s a Director with CIJA.

Of course, these names here represent only a small portion of what actually goes on. More to come in a follow-up article.

7. Where Things Stand

CIJA is a lobbying organization that is extremely influential in Canada. It has political connections across party lines and spends an inordinate amount of time lobbying and promoting Jewish interests.

By itself, this may not be a problem. However, promoting the interests that this group does directly interferes with Canadian interests. A politician cannot be “CANADA FIRST” and be an Israeli shill at the same time. As the expression goes, a dog cannot have 2 masters.

This group is anti-Canada, and anti-free speech, to name just a few criticisms. Showing what it really does is important to educate the public.

2. Context For The Article

The last piece focused mainly on the extensive lobbying efforts that CIJA was involved in doing, namely who and when it was taking place.

Now we get to the “what”. What exactly is CIJA lobbying for, and what do they want? If an organization spends that kind of time and money, they must be serious about it.

3. CIJA’s Prolific Lobbying Efforts

As was covered in the previous article, CIJA, the Center for Israel and Jewish Affairs has been heavily involved in lobbying the Federal Government for decades. Now, let’s take a deeper look into what they actually are lobbying for.

4. CIJA’s Stated Goals

What makes CIJA different from other Jewish organizations?
.
CIJA is the only registered lobbyist for the Jewish community. It is the sole advocacy agent of Canada’s Jewish Federations, focusing much of its work on communications with the non-Jewish community. Its approach to advocacy is strategic, based on research, polling, and analysis. CIJA is the only organization to bring – literally – hundreds of Canadian influencers and decision-makers to Israel on educational missions every year.

Based on information provided in the FAQ, CIJA openly states its goal is to influence policy, and states it brings hundreds of Canadians to Israel annually to help achieve that.

5. IHRA Definition of Anti-Semitism

About the IHRA
The IHRA is the only intergovernmental organization mandated to focus solely on Holocaust-related issues, so with evidence that the scourge of antisemitism is once again on the rise, we resolved to take a leading role in combatting it. IHRA experts determined that in order to begin to address the problem of antisemitism, there must be clarity about what antisemitism is.

The IHRA’s Committee on Antisemitism and Holocaust Denial worked to build international consensus around a working definition of antisemitism, which was subsequently adopted by the plenary. By doing so, the IHRA set an example of responsible conduct for other international fora and provided an important tool with practical applicability for its Member Countries. This is just one illustration of how the IHRA has equipped policymakers to address this rise in hate and discrimination at their national level.

The Working Definition of Antisemitism
In the spirit of the Stockholm Declaration that states: “With humanity still scarred by …antisemitism and xenophobia the international community shares a solemn responsibility to fight those evils” the committee on Antisemitism and Holocaust Denial called the IHRA Plenary in Budapest 2015 to adopt the following working definition of antisemitism.

On 26 May 2016, the Plenary in Bucharest decided to:

Adopt the following non-legally binding working definition of antisemitism:

“Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”

And if this sounds too vague, don’t worry. The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance will get much, MUCH more detailed in what fits this definition.

Contemporary examples of antisemitism in public life, the media, schools, the workplace, and in the religious sphere could, taking into account the overall context, include, but are not limited to:
-Calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews in the name of a radical ideology or an extremist view of religion.
-Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective — such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.
-Accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, or even for acts committed by non-Jews.
-Denying the fact, scope, mechanisms (e.g. gas chambers) or intentionality of the genocide of the Jewish people at the hands of National Socialist Germany and its supporters and accomplices during World War II (the Holocaust).
-Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.
-Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations.
-Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor.
-Applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.
Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis.
-Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.
-Holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel.
.
Antisemitic acts are criminal when they are so defined by law (for example, denial of the Holocaust or distribution of antisemitic materials in some countries).
.
Criminal acts are antisemitic when the targets of attacks, whether they are people or property – such as buildings, schools, places of worship and cemeteries – are selected because they are, or are perceived to be, Jewish or linked to Jews.
.
Antisemitic discrimination is the denial to Jews of opportunities or services available to others and is illegal in many countries.

Yes, this IHRA definition of anti-Semitism means any such behaviour listed above should be criminalized.

Also note: it has the wording “include, but not limited to”. This means that the extensive list of “anti-Semitic behaviour” may be expanded on as time passes.

Language that seems dehumanizing? That also is extremely vague, and seems ripe for abuse. And Jews are greatly overrepresented in government, academia, banking and the media. How is pointing out these facts considered bias?

Even questioning even the scale of the Holocaust is considered a hate crime according to these people?

And Israel DOES practice a double standard when it comes to managing its affairs. Israel has strong border walls, strict immigration, and is extremely ethno-centric when it comes to determining who it should allow to live there. But if you question the hypocrisy, you are an anti-Semite.

Is all of this an academic exercise? Hardly.

6. Pushing IHRA Definition on Others

CIJA has been successful in getting Westmount (Montreal), and Vaughn, and Toronto, to adopt the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism, which is basically anything Jews don’t like.

As a political tactic, this is proving to be very effective.

Looking at this in terms of silencing potential critics: how is this different from the Motion M-103 which Iqra Khalid previously got passed in the House of Commons? The effect is the same — using the claim of victimhood to silence free speech.

7. Changing Human Rights Code

Hate messages
13 (1) It is a discriminatory practice for a person or a group of persons acting in concert to communicate telephonically or to cause to be so communicated, repeatedly, in whole or in part by means of the facilities of a telecommunication undertaking within the legislative authority of Parliament, any matter that is likely to expose a person or persons to hatred or contempt by reason of the fact that that person or those persons are identifiable on the basis of a prohibited ground of discrimination.
Marginal note:
Interpretation

(2) For greater certainty, subsection (1) applies in respect of a matter that is communicated by means of a computer or a group of interconnected or related computers, including the Internet, or any similar means of communication, but does not apply in respect of a matter that is communicated in whole or in part by means of the facilities of a broadcasting undertaking.
Marginal note:
Interpretation

(3) For the purposes of this section, no owner or operator of a telecommunication undertaking communicates or causes to be communicated any matter described in subsection (1) by reason only that the facilities of a telecommunication undertaking owned or operated by that person are used by other persons for the transmission of that matter.

CIJA wants to bring back Section 13 of the Canada Human Rights Act, which was repealed in 2013. The idea is to make it easier to claim anti-Semitism by pointing to electronic communications.

8. (Internet) Hate Speech, Criminal Penalties

The previous section dealt with “online hate” via the Canada Human Rights Act, but here, CIJA wants to push for it to be “criminally punishable” as well. That’s right, not only would this be a human rights violation, but potentially a criminal offence as well.

Of course, CIJA supports the extremely broad and excessive definition of “anti-Semitism” as laid out by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. Don’t worry, this won’t trample on your free speech or anything.

9. Deportations For “Hate Speech”

One of CIJA’s stated goals is to influence policy to make it easier to remove citizenship of Canadians for a variety of reasons, including what it calls: extreme promotion of hate.

Presumably — although it doesn’t specify — this would only apply to people who immigrate to Canada and later become citizens. One can also assume — but again, it doesn’t state — that after the citizenship is revoked the person would then be deported.

While removing people who commit terrorism and crimes against humanity is certainly a reasonable goal, it is disturbing to see “hate speech” included as well. This is especially true since CIJA doesn’t really believe in free speech to begin with.

It would be interesting (at least in some academic sense), to see how this plays out. Under Bill C-6, we no longer pull the citizenship of actual terrorists. Yet we are now supposed to do so for hate speech?

10. Holocaust Training Obligations

The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance unites governments and experts to strengthen, advance and promote Holocaust education, research and remembrance and to uphold the commitments to the 2000 Stockholm Declaration.

The IHRA (formerly the Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Education, Remembrance and Research, or ITF) was initiated in 1998 by former Swedish Prime Minister Göran Persson. Today the IHRA’s membership consists of 34 member countries, each of whom recognizes that international political coordination is imperative to strengthen the moral commitment of societies and to combat growing Holocaust denial and antisemitism.

The IHRA’s network of trusted experts share their knowledge on early warning signs of present-day genocide and education on the Holocaust. This knowledge supports policymakers and educational multipliers in their efforts to develop effective curricula, and it informs government officials and NGOs active in global initiatives for genocide prevention.

Yes, this is very productive: constantly reminding Canadians that Jews are victims.

Interesting to note: IHRA wants to criminalize it (everywhere) to deny or even question the Holocaust, but it is only “this” one that is off limits. Every other alleged atrocity is fair game to dissect and analyse. Perhaps the cover story is falling apart after all these years, so the skeptics must be silenced.

11. CIJA And Durban II

From 20-24 April 2009, the Durban Review Conference took place in Geneva. It is also known as Durban II, a follow-up to the infamous “Durban I” World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance in the late summer of 2001. At Durban I, an NGO Forum accepted what can be summed up as a declaration of war against Israel. Participating nongovernmental organizations adopted a strategy for the complete isolation of Israel through boycotts, divestment, and sanctions.

The Durban I is seen as waging war on Israel. So CIJA is trying to lobby Canada and other nations to act as a counter-weight against future proposals or movements.

12. CIJA Behind Media Licensing Req

Period (2012-05-10 to 2012-07-19)

Period (2015-02-02 to 2015-06-10)

Period (2016-03-01 to 2016-03-18)

Period (2017-06-15 to 2017-08-04)

Period (2019-09-01 to 2020-01-14)

Do you get the picture? For years, the Center for Israel and Jewish Affairs has been lobbying the Federal Government about the issuances of broadcast licenses.

This is not a one time thing, but has been going on for several years, at least. Any wonder why we now have a government that openly calls for all media outlets (regardless of size), to be regulated? This is a deliberate attempt to give control to the government to deplatform anyone who is deemed to be anti-Semitic, or involved in hate speech.

That is correct. The ISRAELI group has spent years lobbying the CANADIAN Government over how media licenses should be issued. This is straight up foreign interference in our affairs.

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. People may have believed it to be the Islamic groups that led to this, and that certainly is a reasonable suspicion. However, the fact is that CIJA has lobbying specifically for this for many years.

13. More Than Just Free Speech

Of course, there are many other things CIJA advocates for.

One is increasing markets for kosher food, that is food killed in barbaric and inhumane ways (much like Islamic halal). Looks like animal rights don’t matter as long as it is cloaked in culture and diversity.

This group also pushes for increased trade and for changes to the tax code that presumably Jews would personally benefit from.

CIJA also wants to see more immigration with easier pathways. But of course, this only applies to people coming to Canada. Israel can remain an ethno-state. CIJA further wishes to entangle Canada in its military and political obligations.

So there is no denying that this group — which has filed 1248 “communications reports” has been busy trying to change Canada’s laws. But the worst one in the eyes of many is its continuous assault on free speech in Canada.

White Westerners are told that identity politics is evil and wrong. But CIJA, and groups like it, endlessly play JEWISH identity politics in order to get their way. Seems hypocritical.

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.

Solutions #10: How To Do Your Own Research, Investigative Journalism

1. Media Bias And Corruption

CLICK HERE, for Unifor in bed with government.
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. Statistics Canada

They say there are lies, damn lies, and statistics. And that is certainly true, although StatsCan can at least give some official numbers for researchers to work with. It has the added benefit of being relatively free of government/political spin.

13. Open Data

Another government source for hard data focused, but still a goos source of information. Keep in mind, it’s only as reliable as the people entering the information in.

14. 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.

15. 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 http://parl.canadiana.ca/ also has more archived documents can be found. More and more is being scanned electronically and posted for all to see.

16. 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.

17. 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.

18. 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. For example, a library in my hometown still has microfilm on census data going back to the 1800s. If only it was readable.

19. 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.

20. 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.

21. 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.

22. 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.

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.

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.)

When researching into True North Center’s tax returns and history, I stumbled across this piece on the subject. Quite thorough, and difficult to add to this, but let’s try anyway.

3. True North Originally I.I.A.A.

From Data On CRA Website

True North Centre for Public Policy
Business/Registration number: 132703448 RR 0001
Charity status: Registered
Effective date of status: 1994-06-18
Designation: Charitable organization
Charity type: Relief of Poverty
Category: Organizations Relieving Poverty

Address: 2030 – 10013 RIVER DR
City: RICHMOND
Province, territory, outside of Canada: BC

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

CHARITY
NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION

Purposes
must be established and operate exclusively for charitable purposes
can operate for social welfare, civic improvement, pleasure, sport, recreation, or any other purpose except profit
cannot operate exclusively for charitable purposes

Spending requirement (disbursement quota)
must spend a minimum amount on its own charitable activities or as gifts to qualified donees
does not have a spending requirement

Designation

Returns
must file an annual information return (Form T3010) within six months of its fiscal year-end
may have to file a T2 return (if incorporated) or an information return (Form T1044) or both within six months of its fiscal year-end

Personal benefits to members

must pay GST/HST on purchases
may claim a partial rebate of GST/HST paid on eligible purchases only if it receives significant government funding
few supplies made by NPOs are exempt
calculates net tax the regular way

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.

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 Masse 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/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.
