Little Democracy Left in Canada

Corporations Run Our Governments – Own Our Media – Control Trudeau

Our problems are deeper than Homelessness and High House Prices and Health Care and Pipelines. These things – and many more – are just ‘the symptoms’. Our real problem is that our Democracy and our Media are owned by Corporate Canada. It is this problem that underlies all the others.

Canadians now have very little voice in how our country is governed. Our Politicians and our Governments don’t work for us. They work for Corporate Canada. Our top politicians have sold us out in exchange for nice jobs, good salaries, and great pensions. Those politicians are doing very well – we pay. One Small Example: 80% of Canadians want ‘GMO foods’ labeled. But Corporate Canada doesn’t want them labeled. So they aren’t. GMO foods are poisonous and a major environmental threat. But we have to eat them because the people who run Canada don’t care what we want. We Canadians are irrelevant in our own country, and THAT is what must change if we want to solve our problems.

Canada’s Media Undermines Democracy

By Controlling What We Are Told.

(Aug. 18, 2016) Here is one example: The Globe and Mail warned on August 15 that Canada will lose thousands of Auto jobs if we don’t give more money to General Motors and the rest. In the story a Union leader talk about ‘unprecedented’ impacts, while the industry itself says they need more money from Canada, or jobs will go. (Auto parts makers urge funding revamp: p. B1)

Now Here’s the Manipulation: The story talks about two choices … Give the Industry Millions – or – Lose the Jobs. But there are choices The Globe doesn’t tell us about – because Corporate Canada doesn’t want us knowing about these choices.

The Globe story doesn’t talk about the Auto Pact – or getting out of NAFTA.

The Auto Pact: The Canada / U.S. Auto Pact was in place from about 1965 until ended by NAFTA after 1994. The Auto Pact ‘said’ that for every car SOLD in Canada, one car had to be MADE in Canada. So when Canadians bought cars … cars were made in Canada. And Canadians got jobs. That was the Auto Pact. It gave us jobs. But it DIDN’T maximize corporate profit. So Corporate Canada and their Politicians and Media got rid of it. Continue reading

Can We Believe Latest RCMP Terror Bombing Story?

Two weeks after one RCMP Bombing Story turns out
to be a pack of lies … the Media gives us another one
with no questions asked!

August 11, 2016: We now have another RCMP Terror Bombing story in Canada. The Corporate Media AGAIN believes every word the RCMP tells them … and the Media is again putting the words ‘Muslim – Terror – Bombing’ over and over into the minds of all Canadians. And they are telling us how much we NEED Bill C51 to protect us from this terror.

And this is exactly what the Media did with the other terror story – the one a BC Supreme Court Judge just said is a lie. Based on that fake RCMP story from July 2013, the Media has told Canadians the words ‘Muslim – Terror – Bombing’ for almost three years – and told us how much we need Bill C51. The Corporate Media linked Muslim Canadians for 3 long years to a ‘terror attack’ that Canadian Muslims had NOTHING to do with because the attack was completely done by the RCMP. And the Media and the RCMP and CSIS used the RCMP attack to push for Bill C51. Which gives them even more powers to betray us. Continue reading

Media Lying to Canadians about RCMP Fake Bombing of B.C. Legislature

Media linked bombing to Canada’s Muslim Community – which had NOTHING to do with it.

(July 31, 2016) The RCMP and Federal Government created a fake ‘terror bombing’ in Victoria BC in 2013. Then they and the media linked the attack to Canada’s Muslim Community, which had NOTHING to do with it. The ‘attack’ was planned and carried out by the RCMP. Nothing would have happened without the RCMP. That’s what Judge Catherine Bruce ruled last week. The Harper Government is also implicated.

Since the ‘bombing’, our Government and Media have spread fear, anger, hate, and division in Canada.  Muslim Canadians were the main targets … but ALL of us were the targets of this evil act. Our rulers WANT to divide us and distract us from the real issues we face. And they do it, by ‘creating another enemy’. How many thousands of times were the words ‘Terror, Bombing, and Muslim’ put together in the same sentence by our Media and the RCMP? Continue reading

Murder in France

We ARE Under Attack … but by Whom??

(July 21, 2016) Since 9/11, so much has been a False Flag or a Lie. I think 9/11 itself was a False Flag supported by the most powerful people in the U.S. That’s why neither the U.S. nor Canadian Governments had an honest investigation. And that’s why the Corporate Media will never ask the questions that would blow the lid off the official 9/11 lies. Thousands of innocent people were killed on 9/11, and those deaths led to millions more deaths in the Middle East. That was The Corporate Plan and they carried it out and led us into a disaster that seems to work for them.

A U.S. War OF Terror: The destruction of Afghanistan and Iraq was based on lies. Those nations were destroyed by a U.S. led War OF Terror. Canada participated. This War of Terror was sold to us by our corrupt Media. Libya was then destroyed by a NATO attack led by a Canadian General. And now Syria. Continue reading

More Censorship at the CBC

By Ingmar Lee

(early July, 2016)

Dear Almanac,
Just now I was interviewed by Chris Walker (of CBC Almanac) regarding our recent rescue of an entangled Humpback whale in Lama Passage near Bella Bella BC. I am thankful that Almanac was interested in our story, however, I am feeling very frustrated to have been very clearly and deliberately prevented from discussing a serious aspect of the story.

Chris Walker cut me off, stating that he “had to get to the callers,” which is a regretable new Almanac euphemism (since the days of Mark Forsythe – which whom I was able to speak freely with on numerous occasions on Almanac) for allowing several comments from ” the callers,” but with the actual intention of then allowing the currently “acceptable” (to Almanac”) propagandists to expound at length on the issue at hand.

The issue I wished to mention, is that DFO, and its favourite propaganda organization, the Vancouver Aquarium jealously guard their BC-wide monopoly on whale disentanglement services. Unlike virtually everywhere else in the world where locally trained and equipped citizen groups take on the responsibility of rescueing whales, in BC there is only one single ” certified” DFO- employed whale disentanglement “expert,” Paul Cottrell. Currently, even professional DFO agents out on the water are not qualified to do actual whale rescue, but instead, may only deploy one of a very few tracking transmitters into the net trails of entangled whales, after which Mr Cottrell may then fly in several days later from his Vancouver office to attempt the disentanglement.

Trudeau Gives Canada’s Community Television Money to Shaw, Rogers, Bell …

About $80 Million – half of Canada’s Community TV budget – will go to
these poor corporations who need it so much

(July 8, 2016): Community TV is the one place on television not completely controlled by Corporate Canada. Community TV is where The News – not just ‘The Corporate News’ – can still be spoken. At least Sometimes.

Unfortunately, the federal government allows big cable companies like Rogers, Shaw, and Videotron to ‘control’ our Community TV stations, so things are not as good as they could be. But if it was ‘freed up’, Community TV could help transform our country. Media is important in a democracy because citizens need honest facts and information so we can make intelligent decisions in our own best interests. People also need access to a variety of ideas and perspectives about important issues. The Corporate Media gives us none of this. On all important issues, only ‘The Official Story’ is allowed.

Community Television allows average citizens to be on TV and talk about all the things the corporations won’t allow in ‘their’ media. So Community TV can act as a ‘balance’ to the tremendous power of the Corporate Owned Media. And we Canadians desperately need that balance at this time in our history when so very much is at risk.

But instead, Justin Trudeau is taking away the money Community TV needs. And he’s giving it to his friends in Corporate Canada. Continue reading

Did RCMP Fake Terror Bombing To Blame Muslims?

On Canada Day 2013, the RCMP ‘faked’ a Terror Bombing in Victoria B.C. The Media then ‘blamed’ Canada’s Muslim Community – who had nothing to do with it.

(May 9, 2016): The RCMP carried out a fake Terror Bombing in Victoria BC on July 1, 2013. Canada’s Media then told us that Muslims had done this terrorist act. Was this ‘operation’ planned and carried out not to ‘prevent’ a bombing, but to fake a bombing and then use that act to blame Muslims and create fear and division in our country?

A phony bombing was carried out by the RCMP. There is no real question about that. And then the Media linked the bombing to Canada’s Muslim Community. Why did Canada’s Corporate Media so happily participate in blaming this ‘terror bombing’ on an entire community of innocent people. The ‘Official Story’ we are being told seemed absurd almost from the beginning. And yet the media repeated it over and over, as if it were ‘really true’. Were journalists told to report the story in a certain way? Continue reading

Shaw Cable Cancels Program That Suggested RCMP faked ‘Terror Attack’ in Victoria BC and worked with Media to blame Muslim Canadians.

(April 11, 2016) By Jack Etkin- former host of Citizens Forum

Shaw Cable refuses to air a Community Television program suggesting the RCMP and the Government of Canada faked a terror bombing in Victoria BC in 2013 and then – with the Corporate Media used the incident to create a backlash against Muslim Canadians and create divisions in Canadian society.

These are serious allegations to make against the government, police, and media – to say that they faked a bombing and then put the blame on a community of people that had nothing to do with it … but I think that’s exactly what happened. The Media put a lot of blame on Muslims for this phony attack – and Shaw participated in that. But when I said what seems to be true – based on the evidence – Shaw refused to air it and then canceled our program.

Here is the background story: The RCMP targeted a couple in their 30’s who were poor, troubled and heavily drug involved. And they had ‘become Muslim’. By the time the RCMP ‘op’ was finished, the couple were on video planting bombs at the BC Legislature on Canada Day. They have been in jail ever since for something that NEVER would have happened without the RCMP setting it up. They even feared the RCMP would kill them if they didn’t plant the bombs. A BC Judge is looking into the issue of ‘entrapment’ by the RCMP.

So, based on that story, Canada’s Media linked Muslim Canadians to the ‘terror bombing’ over and over again, and really smeared Canada’s Muslim community. And the media told us we really need Bill C51 … to help stop this ‘homegrown terrorism. (See Calgary Herald story).

But the evidence suggests the Harper Government and the RCMP ran a false flag operation and used it to target Muslim Canadians, and that’s what I said. Shaw refused to show that, but it’s fine for the media to say ‘the Muslims did it’.

Divide and Conquer is an old and effective trick. That’s what I think we are seeing here, the deliberate creation of fear and division in our society by our senior politicians, the national police, and the media. If that’s true – if they are doing that to us – then our country is in real danger – from our own Corporate and Political leadership.

And it shows how much Canada needs a media that is independent of Corporate ownership and control. These kinds of things could not happen if we had an honest media. And our leaders trick us and manipulate us all the time. This attack is just one example.

Why would our leaders fake a terrorist attack and then put the blame on an entire community of innocent people. And why won’t Shaw allow that to be said? These are important questions that demand answers.

DESTROYING OUR FUTURE: Christy Clark .. Site C .. and Corporate Canada

No Site C Dam Here

“Creative Commons No Site C Dam Here” by tuchodi is licensed under CC BY 2.0

(March 24, 2016)  The big problem in Canada is that The Corporations run the country.  They own The Big Media, and they control The Top Politicians.  The politicians ‘manage’ us – and the Media keep us divided and uninformed so we don’t get in the way.

Site C is one example.  It’s an economic and environmental disaster – but it works for the 1% of the 1% – so Christy Clark is building it for them.  She’ll spend Billions of our dollars to build Site C and destroy some of Canada’s best farmland.  And Site C will also help bankrupt – and privatize – BC Hydro. It’s Win Win for big business. Continue reading
