The rest of the series is here. Many lies, lobbying, conflicts of interest, and various globalist agendas operating behind the scenes, obscuring the vile agenda called the GREAT RESET. The Gates Foundation finances: the WHO, the US CDC, GAVI, ID2020, John Hopkins University, Imperial College London, the Pirbright Institute, the BBC, and individual pharmaceutical companies. The International Health Regulations are legally binding. The media is paid off. The virus was never isolated, PCR tests are a fraud, as are forced masks, social bubbles, and 2m distancing.

3. CHG Lobbying Ottawa For G4S

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

4. CHG Lobbying Ontario For G4S

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

5. CHG Lobbying British Columbia For G4S

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

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

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

Aaron also helped the government become more streamlined in its processes by playing a key part in the Deficit Reduction Action Plan that saw billions in ongoing savings during the Conservative Party of Canada?s 2011-15 majority government.

He has a strong understanding of the legislative and regulatory processes.

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

10. Erin Iverson, CHG Managing Director

Throughout her career, Erin has been known for her ability to make connections and provide sound advice on a wide variety of issues.

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

He has served as an advisor to several Ministers, including the Honourable Caroline Mulroney, Honourable Tony Clement, Honourable James Moore, Honourable Jean-Pierre Blackburn, and the Honourable Senator Claude Carignan.

He also served as a policy advisor as well as a legal and political researcher to the Honourable Senator Claude Carignan during his term as Leader of the Government in the Senate.

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

12. Tara Beauport, CHG Associate Consultant

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

With a little over 5 years of experience, Tara has thrived in creating lasting, positive connections in her roles.

Tara joins the CHG Ottawa team after working as an Outreach Coordinator at MP Catherine McKenna’s community office, having coordinated meetings for MP McKenna with local stakeholders and constituents as well as providing communications and event management support.

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

13. Jonathan Ballingall, CHG Consultant

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

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

14. Dennis Burnside, CHG Senior Consultant

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

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

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

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

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

15. G4S Acquired By Allied Universal/Blackstone

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

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

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

16. What Does This Mean For Canada?

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

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

Scary times.
