Nothing screams loyalty to Canada like being the Chief of Staff for a major Canadian political party, and also being honoured as a “United Nations Global Citizen”.

2. Walied Soliman & His Many Roles
The above quote is from Soliman’s biography in his profile with Norton Rose Fulbright. While holding a position as a corporate lawyer, he has many other roles. Some might see these as conflicts of interest. Soliman was also a campaign chair for Erin O’Toole, who now heads the Conservative Party of Canada. Soliman is also a Director at the Gates-funded Sick Kids Hospital Toronto.
Blacknorth is in fact a real group, and it’s job is to convince the Canadian public that there is systemic racism against black. This in spite of laws which HELP blacks in criminal court. Obviously, it’s nothing to so with average physical differences, or differences in culture. It must be racism perpetrated by whites. Directors also include Paul Desmarais III, and former Governor General David Johnston.
3. Biometric Identification Article
Side note: Martin Masse would also go on to work at the Desmarais controlled Montreal Economic Institute.
If nothing else, an interesting topic, although there would be some serious privacy issues. Of course, if refusing biometrics results in the loss of a job offer, it’s hardly voluntary. McMillan also has a very recent publication cannabis and waste as a “green opportunity”.
4. Heenan Blaikie (Now Defunct) Firm
For many years, Heenan Blaikie was perhaps the most prestigious law firm in Canada. However, it went under in February 2014, due largely to the greed of its members. However, there are some prominent names who were once part of the law firm. Several should be familiar. It seems that spending time at Heenan Blaikie is a stepping stone to greater things.
- Michel Bastarache, Ex-Supreme Court Justice
- André Bureau, Ex-Head of CRTC
- Jean Chretien, Ex-Prime Minister
- Oliver Desmarais, Vice-President at Power Corporation
- Clement Gascon, Ex-Supreme Court Justice
- Roy Heenan, Ex-Head of Trudeau Foundation
- Pierre-Marc Johnson, Ex-Quebec Premier
- Donald J. Johnston, Ex-Head of OECD
- Erin O’Toole, Head of Conservative Party of Canada
- David Stratas, Ex-Justice for Federal Court of Appeal
- Pierre Trudeau, Ex-Prime Minister
5. Desmarais: Canada’s Political Family
If you aren’t familiar with the Desmarais Family and Power Corporation, see this earlier review on the subject. There are many tentacles in Canadian politics, and these are some of them.
- Brian Mulroney, Ex-PM, was a lawyer for Power Corp.
- Jean Chretien’s daughter married Andre Desmarais
- Paul Martin worked for Power Corp., and received Canada Steamship Lines
- Peter MacKay dated Paul Desmarais Jr’s daughter
- Maxime Bernier worked for Montreal Economic Institute, headed by Helene Desmarais
- Martin Masse worked for Montreal Economic Institute, headed by Helene Desmarais
- Gary Doer, Ex-Manitoba Premier, sits on Power Corp’s Board of Directors
- John Rae, Brother of Bob Rae, worked for Power Corp.
- Pierre Beaudoin, Bombardier Chair, is also a Power Corp Director
Also noteworthy is that Andre Desmarais and Linda Koch Lorimer sit on the Trilateral Commission, along with many Canadian politicians. Desmarais is also part of the Century Initiative.
6. Canada-China Business Council
Essentially, this is a coalition of parties (many of whom have political ties), committed to commercial trade and relations with China. However, these relations may not be in Canada’s best interests.

7. CCBC Pushed Hard For Chinese FIPA
The Canada-China Business Council was one of the organizations pushing hard for FIPA, the Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement between Canada and China. See the earlier review. This CCBC is bipartisan, and is made up of both Liberals and Conservatives. In fact, the Conservative Party of Canada was key in selling out to China, but now tells the public they will stand up for Canada.
James Moore, of course, sits on the CCBC, and was a major proponent of FIPA. Erin O’Toole (now head of the CPC), lobbied hard for FIPA when he was a Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Trade.
8. Canada-China Business Council & Huawei
With everything going on, sure, let’s focus on this. Surely China is just being misunderstood in the Western media. Interesting that the people held hostage wasn’t listed.
9. CANZUK, Open Borders, Erin O’Toole
CANZUK was addressed here, here, and here. It was initially adopted in 2018, when Andrew Scheer was leader. Now, Erin O’Toole seems to be an even stronger enthusiast. In short, this open borders scheme will let in “more and more countries” as time passes. O’Toole previously pitched it as opportunity. Now, he refers to it as a necessity to counterbalance China.
It’s strange that O’Toole hasn’t seem to lost his desire for open borders, even as he calls for Canada to invoke the Emergencies Act, and adopt a war footing. He also adopts a version of the “Build Back Better” slogan.
10. Harper: International Democratic Union
The Conservative Party of Canada is also listed as a member in the IDU. So are the Conservative Party in the UK, and the Republican Party in the U.S. Do the Party members know about this?
Of course, if you ask Maxime Bernier about his own involvement in promoting the UNPA, he will go full-Rempel and block you on Twitter. As for some of IDU’s members:
The Right Honourable Stephen Harper
Conservative Party, Canada
Liberal Party, Australia
Lord Ashcroft KCMG, PC
Partido Unionista, Guatemala
Christopher J. Fussner
Republican Party, USA
Dr. Kizza Besigye
Forum for Democratic Change, Uganda
The Honourable Reinhold Bocklet
Christian Social Union, Germany
José Carlos Aleluia
Movimento Democrata Social, Bolivia
11. The Laurentian Swamp Runs Canada
This is hardly an exhaustive account, but know that there is a group of people who run Canada for themselves, to the detriment of the public. They control all major parties, and much of the political agenda. As such, Canadians have no real representation in Government.
