Expelling Iranian Diplomats: Is Canada selling its Soul to America?

Almost half a million Iranians live in Canada. Many reside in Toronto. Tehran planned a consulate to serve them. They’ll have no representation now.”

Canada today operates as an appendage of imperial America. It abandoned its traditional commitment to equality, inclusiveness, and rule of law inviolability.

What corporate Canada wants, it gets. Militarism grows stronger. So does police state harshness.”

“Harper’s government, Canadian elites, its business community and military support imperial/neoliberal/anti-populist policies. Ottawa replicates Washington.

Climate Change, Governance and Geoengineering…

Chemtrails in Long Island, New York skies (2011) / Wikimedia *

“For more than a decade, first the United States and then Canada’s citizens have been subjected to a 24/7/365 day aerosol assault over our heads made of a toxic brew of poisonous heavy metals, chemicals, and other dangerous ingredients. None of this was reported by any mainstream media. The US Department of Defense (DOD) and military have been systematically blanketing all our skies with what are known as Chemtrails (also known as Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering).” – Dr. Ilya Sandra Perlingieri, environmental writer and former university professor and scholar

The UN’s assertion that climate change is directly causal to humans has inspired mandates for geoengineering governance. This scheme does not rely on scientific data or research studies, but rather real world experiments with chemtrail technologies conducted by governmental agencies and private sector corporations employed by policymakers and international entities.” Susanne Posel

Hunger Strike: Canadian activist protesting against Crime Bill C10

”Are we going to be a compassionate Canada and look out for one another, or are we going to criminalize one another and send each other to jail? That’s the fundamental question that has to be answered.” Grand Chef Derek Nepinak, Asembly of Manitoba Chiefs

Obert Madondo’s Indefinite Canada Crime Bill C10 Hunger Strike

CNL Editor’s Note: Despite its poor audio quality, the posting of this video answers to the important message it contains.

At 12:01am on Wednesday, March 14, Ottawa-based activist and progressive blogger, Obert Madondo, started an indefinite hunger strike to protest PM Stephen Harper and the Conservative government’s new cruel Safe Streets and Communities Act (formerly omnibus crime Bill C-10).

The new law will violate Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms, particularly: the right to equal protection before the law; the right to be protected from cruel and unusual punishment; the right to liberty; and the rights of Canadians convicted overseas.

Changes to the youth justice system will victimize and punish our youth: Young offenders will now get stiffer sentences that potentially turn them into hardened criminals, instead of rehabilitating and reintegrating them into society.

“As both countries move forward, perimeter security will be further defined and dominated by American interests. This could force Canada to comply with any new U.S. security measures, regardless of the dangers they may pose to civil liberties.” 

“Nowhere in the documentation resulting from the two meetings are there suggestions the people of Canada will be provided with detailed information on which judgments can be made on the wisdom of this consensual agreement negotiated in the backrooms of both capitals.”

“In Canada, where the banking industry poses relatively little systemic risk, a different solution is now in play. Partnering with the asset management company founded by Toronto billionaire Eric Sprott, Continental Currency Exchange—the largest independently owned retailer of foreign exchange in Canada—is out to create a zero-risk option.”

The “Continental Bank of Canada would remain an unlevered and overcapitalized financial institution, something that isn’t offered by today’s financial services market.”

“Canada’s banks are watching with interest.”
