“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” - Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

“‘Tis strange – but true; for truth is always strange; Stranger than fiction.” - British poet Lord Byron (George Gordon Byron)

A lot of evidence concerning abuse and corruption connected with Children's Aid/Children Services/CPS and the various related government departments and non-government organizations (NGOs) has surfaced in both the U.S. and Canada - yet, over the years, nothing changed.

This indicated that there was a larger more powerful connection at play. It did not take long to find this bigger connection. However, in the early years, there were few people who would accept the reality of these larger global connections.

Most people do not want to believe that corruption and abuse against innocent families and children exists in Canada and the U.S.. They need to feel a sense of security in the society they live in, and that need is so great that most people will prefer to believe a lie rather than face the truth. They want to believe that such things only exist in third world countries !

Understanding that even the basics of the wickedness in Nova Scotia, Canada was hard for most people to accept, we originally limited the information we posted to local concerns. This way, at least, we hoped that we could begin educating Nova Scotians about the reality of abuse and corruption connected with Children's Aid/Children Services/CPS.

However, it broke our hearts to find testimonies from parent groups throughout North America and beyond who had worked years to inform the public and had attemped to change the system, as we had, with no success. They were frustrated and did not understand why, despite all the evidence that had come forward, nothing was done, nothing changed.

We felt they were owed an explanation, so, hopefully, now is the time for people to hear and accept the "Bigger Global Picture".

The powerful connections that are responsible for abusing our innocent families and children go to the highest levels that hides behind secrecy and secret organizations.
Countless people will hate the New World Order and will die protesting against it. When we attempt to evaluate its promise, we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and graceful-looking people." ~ H. G. Wells (1939)

Finally alternate media, first hand testimonies from people coming out of these evil organizations, and countless politicians began now declaring openly the plan for a New World Order and a one world government. Because of this, it is hoped that people will accept the evidence we are now posting concerning this evil global connection. Please view topics under "Bigger Picture" , "Agenda 21" , "Democracy Destroyed" etc .

Because of the push to form a One World Government, we are all connected in our struggle. What is being done elsewhere is being, or will be, done to us because it is the same global power which is working towards the destruction of our families and our children worldwide - And the corruption in Children's Aid/Children Services/CPS is is just one of the instruments they use to achieve this goal.

Thus far there are at least 8 powers that are struggling for this one world domination: the Illuminati, Communism, the Vatican, the Masons, the Islam extremists (understand these Islam extremists are killing fellow Islamic people who do not agree with their extreme views) and India, China, and Russia. They all use and manipulate each other but, ultimately, each wants ultimate control.

In the Christian Bible, it is prophesied that an evil Anti-Christ will set up a one World government utilizing a one world religion where all the people of the world will eventually be forced to worship him alone. It is difficult, at this time, to determine, for certain, if this Anti-Christ raises up from any of the 8 powers mentioned above or elsewhere. Please link here if you are interested in learning more about the Anti- Christ.

Over the years, we have seen the voice of the people shut down: Newspapers, and Radio stations, that were willing to write and broadcast critical articles and interviews against Children Services/CPS and government folded. And radio/media personalities, who allowed people to speak out against Children Services/CPS and the government, lost their jobs or were heavily curtailed.

Both the US and Canada have passed laws to remove our right and freedoms, including free speech: the Patriot Act, numerous Executive Orders nullifying the US Constitution. The latest US government grab for power is the NSAA that would allow the US government to put any US citizen in indefinate detention without charges or a trial.

Oath Keepers (military police and sheriffs loyal to the US Constitution - ready to defend the people against enemies "foreign or domestic" ) and some congress people, senators and US States have also taken a stand. Even concerned individuals have gone to the courts to fight the NSAA.

We believe the internet, as we know it, soon will be limited. Eventually internet use will be removed completely from the hands of the people. The time is short. The time to get this information out is now. No one is immune from the abuse of Children Services /New World Order/Agenda 21 etc. The victims can be your family, your children, your grandchildren, your nieces and nephews etc.

You cannot move away from this threat - It is global !You must not put your head in the sand! - There is a global plan to destroy the family unit and physical, sexual and mental abuse is an essential part of Trauma-Based Mind Control, one of the many mind control programs used by this global system to destroy our children. They are also using the more insidious Neuro Linquistic Programing (NLP) to alter people's value system. But the current and planned use of Electronic, Psychotronic Mind Control which can be used on people in mass is the most alarming of all ! Please view the many topics on this site under the title MIND CONTROL.

They want our children to rebel against us. They want the new generation to view the "state" as their parent.

But worse than all this, they want to kill off most of the people on this planet, and all under the guise of environmentally saving the planet. We have been declared the enemy - They openly state that we, and our children must be sacrificed for the greater good.

If this sounds extreme to you then it is because you have not been paying attention to the world events that are unfolding before your very eyes. You have been lulled into ignorance and apathy. The expansion of sports and sports arenas, the addiction to various social networks, the focus on celebraties on so called "news" shows. This has all been designed to placate the masses and to get your focus off politics and the changes that are being done to you and your family. Your attention has also been diverted to worrying about the economy and an "enemy" that shifts and changes to suit the political manipulating whims of a small powerful elite. - and this spell has been caste over you "by design". The people in the highest realm of this global power call us "stupid sheep", and we are being lead to the slaughter !

You must wake up NOW! Time is VERY short ! I suggest you start with the several topics listed under "Agenda 21" :

1. AGENDA 21/ Sustainable Development Explained: North America - US - Canada - Nova Scotia (It is recommended that you read this 1st)

2. AGENDA 21/ SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: Population Cut/ Cull (kill) Part 1
(They want to kill us, You should question, Vaccines, Fluoride, Water, GMOs, Chemtrails, Morgellons - GMO/Chemtrail desease.

3. AGENDA 21/ SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: Population Cut/ Cull (kill) Part 2
(Morgellons, Meat, Aspartame, No home gardens, Planned vitamin, mineral and organic food ban, Smart meters, Cancer cures, Pollution free energy and cars, Abortion, After birth abortion, Denying medical care, Killing our own troops, Gun control)

4. AGENDA 21/ SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: Pushback - People are waking up Part 1
(States, Governors, Sheriffs, )

5. AGENDA 21/ SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: Pushback - People are waking up Part 2
(Militia, Military, Whistleblowers)

6. Agenda 21/Sustainable Development: The Bigger picture

7. AGENDA 21/ SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: Political Takeover

8. AGENDA 21/ SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: Canada - New World Order (NWO)

If we do not WAKE UP, fight back, and win then you need to seriously prepare yourself and your family for, incarceration without trial, torture, persecution, and even death.

Did you know that Obama has declared Christians to be "potential domestic terrorists"? - Especially those who believe in the promised Second Coming of Jesus Christ, who, as it happens, according to the Bible, comes to put a stop to an evil one world government. http://youtu.be/c0kiSGKbljs

Maybe some of these Christians and Messianic Jews know something that is very important for these times and perhaps we should pay attention to what their holy books have to say about the "End Times" "End of the Age" etc. (the 3 1/2 to 7 years just before the return of Yeshua Ha Mashiach/ Jesus the Messiah or Anointed One.

Beautiful pictures, fab songs, great testimonies from ex- satanists, ex-witches, ex-illuminati, ex-islamists, Christ believing Jews, etc, archeological evidence for Biblical events and most important scriptures to help you, encourage you and guide you.

May you find the path to the Creator of the heaven and earth. He foresaw these days (view topics on the "End Times" in the link above) we are living in right now and He has instructed us clearly on what we must do and what we are NOT to do. ( "The Mark of the Beast" View all scriptures on this subject HERE Revelation 13: 11-17, 14: 9-11, 16: 2, 19:20, 20:4 . Acceptance of the mark is not a matter to be taken lightly. The Bible states that anyone who accepts the mark, that one must have to buy or sell, denies Christ in favor of a false god. This decision, once made, is irrevocable, and the consequences are everlasting. - ( LINK HERE to read in context with fab pictures and music)

Get yourselves educated. Get familiar with the law and the illegal and unconstituional actions of your government . Educate yourselves about the New World Order and Agenda 21. Get vocal with the government to protect your family and children. Get into the family court and bear witness to what is going on in the name of "justice".

Globalisation: The Destruction of the Rule of Law

"There will be deliberate and incremental changes to Canadian Law... Bill C 36 is dramatic and complex.” (Stephen Owen, Member of Parliament, Vancouver Quadra, November 14, 2001, public meeting in Vancouver, BC, Canada )

Bill C 36 is Canada’s proposed anti-terrorism law. We have to think of the significance of the Owen quote above in the context of globalization. These "terrorism" laws are about the completion of globalization (read corporatization, read fascism), not the elimination of terrorism. Excessive police powers are necessary to quell the expectation of the informed public in western democracies. Citizens expect to be able to access their constitutional rights to protest against the infringement of their rights in the process of globalization.


A police state mindset unhooked the damper in Canada at the APEC meeting of Pacific Ocean governments in 1997 in Vancouver BC Canada, escalated at the Summit of the Americas in Quebec City Canada in April 2001, and again at the G20 meeting in Ottawa in November 2001. Even without Bill C 36 there was the nod by government to the police to violate fundamental constitutional rights to peaceful protest and assembly. Detention of protestors without charges and the use of police dogs against protestors were encouraged.
_______________________________________

Since the September 1, 2001 attack in New York city, over 800 people in Canada have disappeared into Canada's detention system without being allowed to contact family or lawyers in violation of human rights. (2). All this before C36 is law.

Justice Minister MacLellan’s proposed changes to Bill C 36 are miniscule and will not prevent police abuse or the destruction of the Rule of Law in Canada. The tiny change to the definition of terrorism fails to eliminate the offensive language of section 27 which catches lawful protestors. Her changes speak to the trickery in government intentions from day one. This is no more than a pretence of response to opposition in effort to fool the public. That we would tolerate human rights abuses even for 5 years is shocking and unsupportable.

Stephen Owen, MP said, “We need the authority of it (Bill C36) in order to implement twelve (12) international treaties that Canada has entered respecting terrorism.” (3). The twelve international treaties Owen talks of referred to in Bill C 36 already have sufficient attention in existing Canadian laws. We do not need the Draconian measures of Bill C 36 to meet Canada's commitments in those United Nations covenants.

What Stephen Owen was saying is that Canadian laws have to be changed because of the globalization agenda, not the needs of Canadians for Canadian interests. A term of the World Trade Organization agreement is that there will be a liberalization and harmonization of domestic laws to accommodate the WTO agenda. Nations are required to suppress citizen unrest over the changes. Bill C 36 is a Draconian measure to prevent citizen interference in that agenda. Its police state powers will terrorize law-abiding citizens.

The 9/11 events in New York are being used to frighten us into accepting the imposition of a punitive inquisitorial system of law in replacement of the Rule of Law.- law that has been developed over centuries since the Magna Carta, the Great Charter of English personal and political liberty, obtained from King John in 1215.

In my view, Bill C36, Bill C 35 (4) and other bills in the works intended to change our law, including dramatic changes to Immigration and refugee law, customs and border protection law, destroy both the rule of law and democracy in Canada. We are destroying the laws that protect Canadians in order to satisfy the dictates of George Bush, the instrument of the New World Order.

On November13, 2001, President Bush declared an "extraordinary emergency" that empowers him to order military trials for suspected international terrorists and their collaborators, bypassing the American criminal justice system, its rules of evidence and its constitutional guarantees. The presidential directive, signed by Bush as commander in chief, applies to non-U.S. citizens arrested in the United States or abroad. The president himself will decide which defendants will be tried by military tribunals. Defence Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld will appoint each panel and set its rules and procedures, including the level of proof needed for a conviction. There will be no judicial review. (5)

The U.S. Justice Department has asked law enforcement authorities across the USA to pick up and question 5,000 men, most from Middle Eastern countries, who entered the country legally in the last two years. This is part of a sweeping U.S.A. government effort to expand the investigation into Al Qaeda's network and clear the way for the more aggressive prosecution of anyone charged with terrorism. Under the order, the president himself is to determine who is an accused terrorist and therefore subject to trial by the tribunal. The order states that the president may "determine from time to time in writing that there is reason to believe" that an individual is a member of Al Qaeda, has engaged in acts of international terrorism or has "knowingly harbored" a terrorist. (6)

The lists of people the U.S. Justice department wants to interview were compiled from Immigration and State Department records of people who entered the U.S.A. since Jan 1,2000, on tourist, student, or business visas. Only men aged 18 to 33 with those visas who are living in the U.S are on the list. (7) (There are about 800 people arrested and detained in Canada as suspects who have been denied access to lawyers and family.) (8)
President Bush is talking of sending suspected terrorists to countries that sanction torture for investigation. U.S.A. media is openly talking about using torture as an investigative technique."The legitimacy of torture as an investigative tool is the latest in a progression of disturbing and horrific topics the news media is now presenting to its audience."(9) Nowhere in international law or in western democracies is torture sanctioned. The highest court in Israel denounced the use of torture in Israel and forbad it. It has come to a sorry state that in the year 2001 such a sick concept as torture is contemplated.

In Canada, our Parliament is preparing new laws on immigration and customs and border protection to harmonize with the US laws. Our sovereign right and entitlement to make laws in our tradition and according to our social ethic is being thrown away by Parliamentarians who know no history nor law, or who are cowards cringing and cowering before a bully, or who are themselves culpable.

What is the Rule of Law?

Margot E Young says there are two unwritten elements of Canada's constitution, two principles that are implicit and essential. They are the Rule of Law and Democracy. (10)

She boils down the rule of law to two simple notions: 1.that individuals be protected from arbitrary power; 2. that all persons- ordinary citizens or members of the government- are equally subject to the law: one law for all. (11)

She sets out the connections of the rule of law in our constitution: (12)
* The Supreme Court of Canada states that the principle of the rule of law is clearly a principle of our constitution and democracy.
* The rule of law lies in the preamble (the interpretive guide) to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms "Whereas Canada is founded on principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law".
* The preamble to the Constitution Act, 1867 imports into Canadian constitutional structure the principles and postulates of the United Kingdom where the rule of law has long been understood to be the basis of British law.
*The Supreme Court of Canada has held that the rule of law is implicit in the nature of a constitution.

Donald J. Sorochan Q.C. wrote

"The rule of law means that everyone is subject to the ordinary law of the land. This is so regardless of public prominence or governmental status. It requires the law to be applied equally to all, without fear or favour and in an evenhanded manner between government and citizen. It ensures that all are equal before the law. The rule of law is not the law of the ruler. There is no exemption from the ordinary law of the state for agents of government. and no one, no matter how important or powerful , is above the law." (13).

So, ask Canada's Parliamentarians why they (except the NDP caucus) are creating a new law (Bill C 35) that would exclude known state terrorists from the application of Bill C 36, Canada's anti-terrorism law? (14),(15).

There are principles of justice that form the basis of the Rule of Law. These principles have been defined by the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) attended by all the European countries, Canada, and the United States in Paris (1989), Copenhagen (1990), and Moscow(1991). (16). Sorochan refers to the broader principles of justice recognized by the conferences. (17).

Bill C 36 violates the following principles:

*Everyone will be presumed innocent until proven guilty according to law. [children can be taken away from parents who have never neglected or abused children.  All the state needs to do is to declare that there is a concern that, sometime in the future, children may be abused or neglected]
*Any person arrested or detained on a criminal charge will have the right to be brought promptly before the judge or other officer authorized by law to decide the lawfulness of the arrest or detention.
*Everyone will be entitled to a fair and public trial.
*All persons are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to the equal protection of the law.
*The government and the public authorities have a duty to comply with the constitution and to act in a manner consistent with law.
*Human rights and fundamental freedoms will be guaranteed by law.
*Everyone will have an effective means of redress against administrative decisions.
*Judges will be independent, and the public judiciary will operate impartially.
*The independence of the legal profession will be protected.
*Everyone will have the right to defend himself or herself in court in person or through prompt legal assistance, which will be given free if the person does not have sufficient means to pay for it. *Domestic legislation will comply with international laws relating to human rights, including guarantees for the freedom of information and communication, travel, thought, conscience and religion, right of peaceful assembly, and demonstrations, associations, private property, etc

Antiterrorism bills are being passed in various western former “democracies”, including the US, Britain, Australia, Canada. They do far more that eliminate civil liberties. They eliminate justice. They return to an inquisitorial system of arbitrary arrest and detention (the"disappeared"). Summarized police allegations replace evidence (proof). [family courts allow hearsay "evidence"] The concept of evidence (proof) is gone. Accusation equals guilt. [people can be put on a child abuse list without charge or proof] The concept of innocent until proven guilty is gone. The two essential elements of criminal law to establish guilt, mens rea and actus reus, are gone. (Mens rea is intention to do a crime and actus reus is the fact of doing the crime.) If the state decides a terrorist act was committed and you were in anyway connected or associated, you are guilty whether or not you intended to do the criminal act or whether or not you did the act. The right to remain silent is gone. The principle of confidentiality between lawyer and client is gone (akin to forcing a priest to reveal the contents of the confessional). The concept of a fair trial and the right to a full defence is gone. People or organizations accused of being a terrorist are put on a list. Anyone who associates with listed person or organization can be by association defined as a terrorist. Hence lawyers who defend people accused of being a terrorist face being defined themselves as terrorists. Property and bank accounts can be frozen and confiscated by accusation of being a terrorist. Punishments are excessive and severe (life imprisonment in many cases). These are some of the horrors of Bill C 36.
Rocco Galati said

"... the Muslim and Arab communities will be directly affected. You just have to witness the approximately 800 illegal detentions in this country currently going on in the correctional centres before you even have Bill C-36, where Muslims and Arabs have been directed not to be able to phone their lawyers, see their lawyers, phone their families, see their family as of September 11. That's going on right now. I see it in the jails every day. "

"This bill is, in my humble submission, obscene in the net it casts. You might as well have deleted the constitution from our landscape. This bill is so overbroad, it catches socio-economic and political offences. It creates themstrikes, work stoppages, boycotts, protests, association, assembly, and free speech."

"What's insidious about this bill, if you read section 27 and the definition of what isa prejudicial act to the safety or interest of the state ’, there are various economic crimes in here that relate back to the definition of terrorism which would catch [include], (boycotts for environmental and ethical reasons) would catch [include] any legal strike against the financial markets. This is as much about stomping anti-globalization, anti-poverty, anti-logging protest as it is about terrorism. In fact, if it were just about terrorism, this bill would be 10 to 15 pages long. You are invoking extraordinary measures that we haven't since June 21, 1941 and October 1970 in terms of secret trials, secret trial mechanisms, the abrogation of the right to remain silent, self-incrimination, the 72-hour detention without charge. You have investigative hearings that do away with all charter rights, and then you have seizure of property, and then to charge, convict and sentence someone even without knowledge if he's a facilitator with secret trials."

"I'm probably the only one in the room who's actually conducted these secret trials under the Immigration Act (An existing act without Bill C 36). They are the substance of a dictatorship, of a police state. You don't get to see the evidence, ever. It's all dealt with by the judge, it's covered. The accused person never gets to see it. " .... "The problem with our legislation (Bill C 36) that makes it stand out like a sore thumb is , how do you get an alleged terrorist convicted and how do you have his assets seized? It's in the mechanisms of the 72-hour detention, the investigative hearings, and the secret trials before the trial court that this legislation is unprecedented anywhere in the world. " ... ...it's the way people are arrested without cause or need for a probable cause, and held for 72-hours. They can, in theory, be out the door and back in for another 72, and another 72. There's nothing that stops that. We saw that during the FLQ crisis. Secondly, it's hauling people in for investigative hearings. If you don't answer a question, that's an offence, and you can go to jail, even if they ask you, do you have marijuana at home. There's nothing that protects against self-incrimination of non-terrorist acts in the bill, for instance. Thirdly, when you get to court, and this is unprecedented, the star chamber proceedings that you've mirrored from the immigration terrorist certificates that we've seen for the last twelve years, are unprecedented. They're medieval; they're inquisitorial. I've done them. I, in fact sir, won one in Mr. Jabala's xxx case in 1999. CSIS did not like the result. He has been re-arrested on the same allegations in 2001. You can be re-arrested and re-arrested even if you're acquitted. That is unprecedented anywhere in the world. As you know, Italy had its terrorism nightmare in the seventies. Germany had its terrorism nightmare in the seventies and eighties. " .... ....this, in my humble view and no offence to who drafted it, is a reptilian piece of legislation because it's really conniving in the way it works.”

(Mr Galati illustrates how you have to jump from one part of Bill C 36 to another to follow what it actually does, and to show how tinkering with it will not fix it.) “You have to deal with Section 27 of the bill (of the Official Secrets Act part of the bill ) that amends what is ‘prejudicial to the safety and interest of the state, which then feeds in to subparagraph (83.01)(b)(1)(B) because (B) talks about ‘something that in whole or in part with the intention of intimidating the public or a segment of the public with regard to its security,’ and I underline, ‘including its economic security.’

Now, you have to then go to the amendment under Section 27 of the Official Secrets Act, that defines that as a ‘prejudicial safety interest’, and then you have to go to subparagraph (S27)3(1)(d),(f),(j),(k), and (l) and that covers...you can't do anything to adversely affect the financial markets, treaty negotiations for instance, in Quebec City, or APEC.

That amendment to the Official Secrets Act, coupled with ‘economic security interests’, means that political and economic dissent are still acts of terrorism under this law. And I'll read you some of those subparagraphs that are there. If you do anything that ‘adversely affects the stability of the Canadian economy, the financial system or any financial market in Canada without reasonable economic or financial justification’. So the French farmer who wants to boycott McDonalds and maybe dump something with a dump truck is a terrorist under this provision.

Sub (l) (if you do anything that)'’impairs or threatens the capability of the Government of Canada to conduct diplomatic or consular relations or conduct and manage international negotiations.’ So Quebec City, all the protesters would be terrorists and, in fact, RCMP Commissioner Zaccardelli was asked publicly a few weeks ago could he have used Bill C-36 in Quebec City and he said he might probably not, but yes he could have used it to arrest those as terrorists.

So (in answer to a question put by a member of the committee whether deleting section 83.01(E) would resolve the concerns against the Bill) deleting the lawful protest part of (83.01)sub (E) does not do it. You have to go to (b) in 83.011(b)(i)(B) and you have to, unless you delete the amendments to the Official Secrets Act, now (named) the Security of Information Act, you have to delete that reference to ‘economic security’ because then that in turn makes all civil protests for anti-globalization, anti-logging, antipoverty, anti anything that doesn't have an economic or financial justification an act of terrorism and that's why I referred to this as reptilian before because it really is a slivery piece of legislation.

It's not clear in the definition of terrorism (that civil protests are terrorist acts). It's by reference to ‘economic and financial security’ and when you go over to the Official Secrets Act you see that anybody who voices an opinion converse to the government of the day is a terrorist under this (Bill C 36). (18)

The system is already operating as if Bill C 36 was in place. It is using existing law (sufficiently Draconian in its own right) to effect it. Protestors are already being affected. A US citizen social activist, Lisa Fithian, was arrested in Ottawa, Canada November 13,2001 in advance of the G20 economic summit of finance ministers. She was being held by Citizenship and Immigration authorities awaiting deportation. She was in Canada to teach peaceful protest techniques for the G20 economic meetings. She has been in and out of Canada several times during the past year. Grounds for detention include being a flight risk before a deportation hearing can take place, or being deemed a risk to Canadians. (19). (The good news about the G20 economic protests is that simultaneous to the G20 protests in Ottawa, in 60 cities in Europe tens of thousands of protestors were demonstrating against the G20 summit as they were in other parts of Canada.) (20)

Despite the classic crushing process rampant in the commands of the WTO, the World Bank, and the IMF, which process is being institutionalized in these dramatic changes to domestic laws around the western world, protestors are not submitting. The intention of these Draconian laws is to terrorize protestors, drive them into submission, and bend them to the will of the new Iron Heel. These laws are being implemented precisely because of the success of the masses of demonstrators around the world who understand freedom vs oppression. The indoctrination tactic of a Stephen Owen repeatedly trying to frighten the audience and blame Bin Laden and 9/11 as justification to destroy democracy just could not fly before an informed educated audience.

Just as the government of Canada is determined to destroy our democracy ("We will bring in legislation to stop terrorism....Bill C36 is aimed at political, ideological, and religious motivations and perversions that intimidate and move governments," (21), so the citizens of Canada are determined to save it. We are not so weak as Goering said (22).

"Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don't want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." (23)

Now more than ever it is the time to speak out, to write to your MP, MLA, municipal councillor, and to every community organization, church, and leader in your community, and to the media. Information on contacting Members of Parliament. (24)

"First They Came For"....... by Reverend Martin Niemoeller (25)

"In Germany, the Nazis first came for the communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then the came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, but I didn't speak up because I was a protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak for me." - Reverend Niemoeller, a German Lutheran pastor, was arrested by the Gestapo and sent to Dachau in 1938. He was freed by the allied forces in 1945

Parliamentary Review of the Anti-terrorism Act
The Anti-terrorism Act (ATA) is one of several pieces of legislation that form the Government of Canada's overall anti-terrorism strategy. It takes aim at terrorists and terrorist groups and helps the Government of Canada meet the extraordinary challenges presented by terrorism. The legislation protects the safety, security and fundamental rights of Canadians.

Section 145 of the ATA required a committee or committees of Parliament to conduct a "comprehensive review of the provisions and operation of the Act", within three years from the date that the Act received Royal Assent (December 18, 2001). A motion of the House of Commons on December 9, 2004, authorized the Standing Committee on Justice, Human Rights, Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness to review the ATA. Its Subcommittee on Public Safety and National Security began its review in February 2005. The Senate adopted a similar motion on December 13, 2004, establishing a Special Committee to undertake a separate review.

The House of Commons Subcommittee on Public Safety and National Security and the Special Senate Committee on the Anti-terrorism Act conducted hearings during the 38th Parliament. Transcripts of these hearings can be accessed on the Parliament of Canada website:

•  The House of Commons Subcommittee on Public Safety and National Security

•  The Special Senate Committee on the Anti-terrorism Act . (Put in the word "anti terrorism" in the search on this site)

The dissolution of the 38th Parliament on November 30, 2005, ended the work of the Parliamentary review committees. The 39th Parliament saw one committee resumed, and a new committee established, to continue the review of the ATA. Transcripts of these hearings can be accessed on the Parliament of Canada website:

•  The House of Commons Subcommittee on the Review of the Anti-terrorism Act

•  The Special Senate Committee on the Anti-terrorism Act .

On October 23, 2006, the House of Commons Subcommittee on the Review of the Anti-terrorism Act (“House Subcommittee”) released its Review of the Anti-terrorism Act Investigative Hearings and Recognizance with Conditions Program: Interim Report of the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security.

The final report of the House Subcommittee – Rights, Limits, Security: A Comprehensive Review of the Anti-terrorism Act And Related Issues – was released on March 27, 2007. The Government filed its response to the Subcommittee’s recommendations, Government Response to the Seventh Report of the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security on July 18, 2007.

On February 22, 2007, the Special Senate Committee on the Anti-terrorism Act released its main report (Third Report) entitled Fundamental Justice in Extraordinary Times . On March 28, 2007, the Special Senate Committee issued a supplementary report (Fourth Report). The supplementary report notably commented on the Supreme Court of Canada’s Charkaoui decision and the immigration security certificate process.On October 22, 2007, Bill C-3, An Act to Amend the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (Certificate and Special Advocate) and to Make a Consequential Amendment to Another Act , was introduced in the House of Commons. The Bill amends the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) to provide a new procedure relating to immigration security certificates and, in particular, to provide for the appointment of a special advocate to represent the interests of a person named in a security certificate. The Bill was introduced after the Supreme Court of Canada ruled in February 2007 that IRPA’s procedure for judicial approval of security certificates infringed the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and was therefore of no force or effect. The Court suspended its declaration for one year to provide time for Parliament to amend the procedure. The Bill received Royal Assent on February 14, 2008, and was proclaimed into force on February 22, 2008. On October 23, 2007 the Government introduced in the Senate Bill S-3.

Bill S-3 proposes amendments to the Criminal Code that would reinstate anti-terrorism provisions that expired under a sunset clause in March 2007. The proposed provisions are substantially similar to the original provisions, which came into force with the Anti-Terrorism Act in 2001. Bill S-3 proposes:

•provisions to bring individuals who may have information about a terrorism offence before a judge for an investigative hearing,

•and provisions dealing with recognizance with conditions, including preventive arrest to avert a potential terrorist attack.

The Bill also:

•contains a 5-year sunset clause;

•requires that the Attorney General and the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness to report annually on their opinion together with reasons as to whether these provisions should be maintained;

•incorporates other technical amendments.

Bill S-3 was passed by the Senate. It was in the House of Commons at Second Reading when the House of Commons recessed on June 20, 2008. The House of Commons is adjourned until September 15, 2008 .
Updated to June 20, 2008.


Anti-terrorism Act
Last Updated February 27, 2007
CBC News

In the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the U.S., the federal government created Canada's first anti-terrorism legislation defining what terrorism is and making it a punishable offence within Canada's Criminal Code. The Anti-terrorism Act (Bills C-36 and C-42) , was the subject of heated debate and controversy as the Liberal government of the time fast-tracked it through the House of Commons and the Liberal-dominated Senate.

The act became part of the Criminal Code on Dec. 18, 2001. The changes to the code are "aimed at disabling and dismantling the activities of terrorists groups and those who support them."

As it was being drafted politicians and protesters raised concerns that the legislation as proposed trampled on civil liberties because it gave police sweeping new powers, including the ability to arrest people and hold them without charge for up to 72 hours if they are suspected of planning a terrorist act.

The Liberals used their majority to pass a motion to curtail debate, and rejected all of the remaining opposition amendments. The motion passed easily in the House of Commons with a vote of 190 in favour and 47 against.

However, in a nod to civil libertarians, the bill contained a five-year sunset clause on some of its more controversial elements and it is the proposal to extend these provisions that has provoked enormous controversy in Parliament in recent weeks.

The Conservative government has tried to paint the Liberals as hypocritical and weak on terrorism for refusing to extend two provisions in particular. Because both the NDP and the Bloc Québécois are also against an extension, Liberal support is necessary if these elements of the act are to continue. [Remember it was a Liberal government that brought this in to begin with - Now as the opposition, they were oppposing the extension of the sunset clauses]

What's at stake

Current Conservative Prime Minister of Canada Steven Harper

Of the two clauses that are at the heart of the debate, one allows police to arrest suspects without a warrant and detain them for three days without charges if police believe a terrorist act may be committed.

The other would allow a judge to compel a witness to testify in secret about past associations or perhaps pending acts under penalty of going to jail if the witness doesn't comply.

Neither clause has been used by police or prosecutors in the five years the act has been enforced but, in October, a parliamentary committee recommended extending the two provisions for another five years.

As well, Prime Minister Stephen Harper caused a partisan stir last week when, reading from a news report, he said a relative of a Liberal MP was on a secret list to be questioned by authorities in their reinvestigation of the Air India tragedy and implied this was the reason the Liberals were switching sides.

In the Commons this week, deputy Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff explained his party's change of position, arguing that the curtailment of civil liberties can only be justified under emergency provisions and when public safety absolutely requires it.

"If this is the test," he said, "the clauses should sunset because they have not proven absolutely necessary to public safety. The government, in essence, has not proven its case and on these questions where our liberties are at stake the government has to prove the case of public necessity beyond a shadow of a doubt."

Motive and history

former Liberal justice minister, Anne McLellan
When the bills were passed, the Liberal justice minister at the time, Anne McLellan, said the provisions had three main objectives: To suppress existing terrorist groups, provide police with new investigative tools, and toughen prison sentences for terrorists.
The bills also contained provisions to comply with new UN rules on combating terrorism as well as with similar laws that were being put in place in the U.S. and Britain.

"We believe that people everywhere are entitled to live in peace and security," McLellan said.

Former justice minister Vic Toews

In June 2006, then Conservative justice minister Vic Toews said the government had no plans to toughen the Anti-terrorism Act after the arrest of 17 people in Toronto suspected of planning a bombing campaign. However, he said, it may consider changing the law's definition of terrorism, which is called the motive clause.

This clause defines a terrorist act as one committed "for a political, religious or ideological purpose, objective or cause." Toews said there are two problems with that definition: it could lead to profiling of people of a particular religion, Islam especially, and it could be difficult for prosecutors to provide evidence of a suspect's personal beliefs.

On Oct. 24, 2006, a Superior Court judge struck down the motive clause, saying it violates the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The judge was working on the case of Mohammed Mormin Khawaja, the first person charged under the new anti-terror provisions.

Khawaja, a software developer, was arrested on March 29, 2004, and faces seven criminal charges alleging that he participated in and gave assistance to an alleged British terrorist organization.

Although the judge struck down part of the law used to arrest Khawaja, he said his trial on the charges could go on.

Highlights of the Anti-terrorism Act:

• It gives the police wide, sweeping powers to act on suspected acts of terrorism.

• It allows suspected terrorists to be detained without charge for up to three days.

• It makes it easier for the police to use electronic surveillance, which used to be seen as a last resort.

• It allows for preventive arrests.

• It allows judges to compel witnesses to give evidence during an investigation. [? Are we talking torture here ?]

• It allows for the designation of a group as a terrorist organization.

The legislation makes it a crime to:

• Knowingly collect or provide funds, either directly or indirectly, in order to carry out terrorist crimes. Using this definition, the Crown must prove that the accused collected, provided or made available funds that he or she knew would be used to help a terrorist group. Canadian courts would be given the jurisdiction to try this offence even if it were committed outside Canada, when the accused is found in Canada. The maximum sentence for this offence would be 10 years.

• Knowingly participate in, contribute to or facilitate the activities of a terrorist group. The participation or contribution itself does not have to be a criminal offence and would include knowingly recruiting into the group new individuals for the purpose of enhancing the ability of the terrorist group to aid, abet or commit indictable offences. The maximum sentence for the offence of participating or contributing would be 10 years imprisonment. The maximum sentence for facilitating would be 14 years imprisonment.

• Instruct anyone to carry out a terrorist act or an activity on behalf of a terrorist group (a "leadership" offence). This offence carries a maximum life sentence.

• Knowingly harbour or conceal a terrorist. The maximum sentence for this offence would be 10 years.

In addition to the changes to the Criminal Code, the anti-terrorism legislation makes changes to:

The Official Secrets Act - renamed to the Security of Information Act it creates new offences against threats of espionage by foreign powers and terrorist groups and allows ministers to declare certain actions secret.

The Canada Evidence Act - amended to include changes to courtroom and other proceedings to protect classified information.

The National Defence Act - amended to clarify the mandate of the Communications Security Establishment to intercept communication of foreign targets and undertake security checks of government computer networks to protect them from terrorist activity.



Canada Anti-Terrorism Laws: Harper Conservatives Will Reintroduce Controversial Measures
http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2011/09/06/stephen-harper_n_951367.html

NDP MP Paul Dewar states plan to reintroduce these draconian provisions simply isn’t backed up by the facts

UPDATE: Liberal interim leader Bob Rae told reporters in Ottawa Wednesday that if Prime Minister Stephen Harper wanted to bring back the measures he would face a “good debate” in Parliament.

The Prime Minister needs to explain to us why if these measures were so important and necessary they were not in place for four years,” Rae said. “Is the Prime Minister saying that for the last four or five years we were at risk, at greater risk because the measures have not been in place?”

NDP MP Paul Dewar said in an email to Huffington Post Canada on Tuesday that Harper's plan isn't necessary.

Stephen Harper's plan to reintroduce these draconian provisions simply isn’t backed up by the facts. The government has produced no evidence to justify this move. Security is obviously important to Canadians, and we can make Canada secure without resorting to measures like these.

“In fact, the former Director of CSIS Reid Morden has said that these provisions were needless and crossed the line between state security and individual rights.”

Harper tried to re-introduce the police-broadening powers in 2008, but his efforts failed in 2008 because the Conservative minority government didn’t have the required seat count. Now that Harper has a majority in both chambers, the hurdle he once faced is no longer an obstacle.

The Liberal caucus was divided over the necessity of the measures four years ago, with some MPs who agreed with the governing Tories sitting out the vote.
--------

The Conservative government will reintroduce controversial anti-terrorism measures that were allowed to expire amid privacy concerns and Charter rights complaints, Prime Minister Stephen Harper confirmed to the CBC Tuesday.

On the eve of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Harper told CBC’s Peter Mansbridge that Canada needs better tools to combat the ongoing threat of major acts of terrorism and Islamist violence.

Among other controversial measures expected to be made law again are preventative arrests and the ability to force individuals to testify at “investigative hearings” if officials suspect they have knowledge of terrorist activity.

That is our plan (to reintroduce the measures). We think those measures are necessary. We think they've been useful. And as you know, they're applied rarely, but there are times where they're needed,” said Harper in an interview to be broadcast in its entirety Thursday.

The measures were initially included in the Liberal government’s anti-terrorism act passed soon after 9/11 under then prime minister Jean Chrétien. The controversial provisions of the bill were allowed to expire five years later after a majority of Parliamentarians voted not to reinstate them.

The NDP was especially adamant that the measures were a breach of fundamental freedoms and compromised key features of Canada’s justice system and Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Investigative hearings provide officials with a way to force someone suspected of having information about terrorist activity to testify before a judge. Preventive detention allows the state to incarcerate anyone suspected of involvement in criminal activity without having to prove allegations. Both provisions gave the government far too much power, the NDP argued.

Not everyone who chooses to remain silent is guilty. People may have very legitimate fears and concerns, such as fears and concerns about their own personal safety,” then NDP MP Bill Siksay told the House of Commons in 2008 when the Tories first tried to reintroduce the measures.

Jailing people because we think they might do something criminal is very problematic, to say the least,” he added.

But Harper suggested the measures are a rational response to very real threats faced by Canada.

“The major threat is still Islamicism. There are other threats out there, but that is the one that I can tell you occupies the security apparatus most regularly in terms of actual terrorist threats,” Harper said.

“Now, as we've seen in Norway, terrorist threats can come out of the blue. It can come from something completely different, and there are other groups and individuals that if given the chance would engage in terrorism. But that one is probably still the major one,” he noted.

The Prime Minister said Canada not only faces threats from outside its borders, but also from within, in the form of homegrown terrorists.

“When people think of Islamic terrorism, they think of Afghanistan, or maybe they think of someplace in the Middle East, but the truth is that threat exists all over the world. We've seen some recent bombings in Nigeria, domestic Nigerian terrorists,” Harper said, adding “Homegrown is also something that we keep an eye on.”

In its annual report tabled in June, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) noted that the main threat to Canada continues to be Islamist violence.

"Canada is a tangible target for Islamist extremist-inspired violence," CSIS Director Richard Fadden wrote.

The service was also concerned about terrorist plots being planned by individuals or groups "we do not know about," Fadden said.

The internet is under attack here in Canada and if Stephen Harper gets his way with the "lawful access" bill, he will pave the way for big brother to have total control over everything we do online.

Kill The Bills C-30 and C-11

The Canadian Conservative government is ready to crush internet freedom in Canada. The citizens of the world spoke clearly on January 18, 2012, that internet, communications should not be criminalized. But the Conservatives in Canada, plan to ram through their own versions of SOPA , PIPA , and even more. Their legislation is in two proposals, called Bill C 30 and Bill C 11. The goal of Bill C 30 is to make it legal for the Conservatives and their police friends to get all the information they want, about what you do on the internet. Bill C 11 will make file sharing, as Canadians now know it, a criminal activity.

People who share files of anything copyrighted will be criminals. Web sites where people can share files will be illegal. Bill C 30 will then let the Conservatives police forces search for you on the net without a warrant.

When they find you they can enter your home and take your computer equipment and software. You will be open to prosecution, fines, and jail. The Conservatives have told everyone they want to build more prisons. Bills C 30 and C 11 make it very clear they plan to fill these new jails with file sharers, and anyone else they can find, when they make it legal for the police to cruise the internet at their leisure looking for anything a Canadian does, on the internet.

Don't forget Bill C-309 - FIVE YEAR PRISON SENTENCE for "unlawful assembly" aka, any protest the police state hasn't approved of. We wont allow them to take our freedom! Prepare for the fight of your life Canadians! People of the world will unite against the elite! Long live liberty!

The Truth About Canada 1
http://melhurtig.ca/

Mel Hurtig: Based on bio at http://archive1.macs.ualberta.ca/FindingAids/MelHurtig/hurtig.html

Hurtig attended the founding of the Committee for an Independent Canada (CIC), and acted as its chair in 1973-74. The CIC founders were concerned about the high degree of foreign ownership in Canada and its persuasive influence on the lives of Canadians in the domains of politics, economics and culture. The CIC went on to raise a petition of over 170,000 names against foreign economic and cultural domination of Canada, and remained active until 1980. In 1985, Mel Hurtig founded a new national organization: The Council of Canadians (COC). Its focus was to raise public awareness and lobby against the “free trade” initiative in order to preserve and reinforce Canadian sovereignty. The COC, still in existence, develops policies, lobbies government, and strives to create public awareness around issues of Canadian nationalism and sovereignty.

Mel Hurtig announced his resignation from the Council of Canadians at its 1992 Annual General Meeting and his intention to launch a new political party: “The National Party of Canada”. He was elected leader of the party in November 1992, and the party’s policy book: A New and Better Canada was published in December 1992. The party grew quickly and managed to field 171 candidates in ridings across the country in the 1993 federal election. Less than a year later, the party was dissolved by its council amid allegations of financial mismanagement and other internal problems.

After leaving publishing, Hurtig became an author with the publishing of

 Betrayal of Canada (1991), a passionate appeal for Canada’s survival, and then a memoir,

At Twilight in the Country: Memoirs of a Canadian Nationalist (1996). His three latest books include

Pay the Rent or Feed the Kids (2000),

The Vanishing Country: Is It Too Late to Save Canada? (2002),

Rushing to Armageddon (2004) and the recent

The Truth About Canada: Some important, some astonishing and some truly appalling things all Canadians should know about our country. (2008)

The high profile Mel Hurtig enjoys with his many involvements, professional career, and writing ensures his demand for public speaking engagements across the country. He has actively volunteered on numerous boards and committees, and his commitments and passions have been recognized with the bestowing of many awards and honorary degrees. Mel Hurtig is an Officer of the Order of Canada and received the Lester B. Pearson Man of the Year Peace Award (1988). Recently, he was named an ‘Edmontonian of the Century’, honoring individuals who contributed significantly to Edmonton’s growth in the past 100 years.

Canada - Halifax

Atlantica's Rising Tide
A proposed free-trade area would radically change Canada's East Coast - but would it lift all boats?
By Drew Nelles

Police block protesters on the front steps of the Halifax, NS, World Trade and Convention Centre, where the closed-door Atlantica conference was being held.


Halifax may be the largest city in the Maritimes, but it's hardly a metropolis; home to Dalhousie University, and with a population of just 119,000 people, it feels more like a sleepy college town than a provincial capital. In the early afternoon on June 15, though, about 350 people gathered in a downtown park to wake the city up. The elderly activist group the Maritime Raging Grannies were performing a song composed just for the occasion, sung to the tune of "Go Tell it on the Mountain":

"Come sing it with the sisters / Over the borders everywhere / Atlantica would hurt us / We have to make trade fair / Behind closed doors they'll sign a deal / And we won't know a thing / They'll trample on our human rights / So let our protests ring."

"Atlantica" is a proposed free-trade deal that would further integrate the Maritimes and south-eastern Quebec with the New England states. The agreement was being discussed in Halifax at a conference hosted by one of the deal's main proponents, the right-wing think tank Atlantic Institute for Market Studies (AIMS). While business-people and politicians mingled inside, regular citizens were left on the doorsteps and without a voice in the meetings. "This is an invisible agenda that nobody has really known about up to this point," explained J.D. Price, a spokesperson for the Anti-Atlantica Alliance, the umbrella group that rallied critical voices to come and demonstrate. "The overarching problem is that there’s no transparency, there no participation with civil society. They're talking about scaling back policies and regulations that working class people have fought and struggled for, things like minimum wage and environmental regulations."

As free-trade deals tend to do, Atlantica has generated enough concern to unite a broad cross-section of left-wing activists and concerned citizens; union organizers, environmentalists, parents and children, Canadian nationalists, and militant anarchists all stood in the verdant green park and listened to the Raging Grannies. Some of the anarchists - the self-described "Black Bloc - seemed a bit unsure whether to clap along to the song, or to remain ominous and still. As the demonstration began moving and neared the World Trade and Convention Centre, where the Atlantica conference was being held, this indecisiveness surfaced again.

The 75-strong Black Bloc broke off from the larger march and began running for the Convention Centre, but were blocked by a few police. The events that followed have already been widely reported: someone hurled a smoke bomb at the police, and inexplicably the Bloc ran in the opposite direction, [there are concerns that these protesters dressed in black who cover their faces are people employed by the government to make the genuine protesters look bad] heading toward a busy main road as some desperately yelled, "Where are we going?" Once on the road, protestors pelted businesses and police with paint-filled balloons and light bulbs; the police responded with pepper spray, tazers, billy clubs, and multiple arrests.

A number of protestors dispersed, but some headed north, toward Halifax's iconic Citadel Hill. In the shadow of that landmark, more paint bombs were thrown, and riot police pepper-sprayed and tazered more people, including at least one who was already handcuffed and detained. As a woman was hustled into a police van, she shouted repeatedly, "This is what the police state looks like!"

A man lay on the ground, barely conscious, as police huddled around him, chuckling and cracking jokes. When the paramedics arrived, one turned to a cop and asked, apparently incredulous, "What were you thinking?" Regaining consciousness, the man on the ground croaked to a paramedic, "Tell them to go away," referring to the officers.

Later, at the Convention Centre, about 60 people were gathered on the front steps, shouting chants like, "One-two-three-four, Atlantica is class war! Five-six-seven-eight, organize and smash the state!" Standing with a line of police, a security guard informed the protestors that the Convention Centre is private property; an aboriginal protestor responded, "This is stolen land." One demonstrator, dressed ludicrously in purple goggles, a Hawaiian lei, and a garish skirt, was shoved down the concrete steps by a police officer; he was apparently singled out for violating bail conditions, which dictated that he stay away from the Atlantica conference. The demonstrator began running but was tackled by an undercover cop, dragged behind police lines, and arrested. "You didn't even give me a chance to remove myself from the premises!" he yelled. As other protestors approached, an officer swung his billy club and growled, "Who wants to cross the line?"

By the end of the day, 21 people had been arrested, including at least two who were not involved in the demonstration. Paint splattered the streets, a bank window was broken, and the mainstream media decried the protest as violent. But the Atlantica conference went off without a hitch - in fact, although Atlantica has largely flown beneath the radar prior to the demonstration, the Canadian government announced that week $588,000 in support of the Atlantica Council, which will promote the nascent trade area.

"Atlantica" seems a rather fabulous name for something as unsexy as a trade agreement, but the tale of how it came to the attention of the activist community is nearly as mythic. The rumour goes that, in late 2005, a single East Coast activist discovered AIMS's proposal online and began alerting friends and allies. The pressure of organizing later caused him to suffer a nervous breakdown, but from these humble beginnings blossomed a full-on anti-Atlantica movement.

Atlantica is more officially known as "Atlantica: the International Northeast Economic Region" (AINER) . The brainchild of AIMS, the proposed free-trade area would encompass what is generally described as the "Atlantic Northeast"; in Canada, this would include New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Quebec south of the St. Lawrence, Newfoundland, and Prince Edward Island; in the U.S., upstate New York, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine. Much of the proposal revolves around traditional free-trade proposals like eliminated tariffs, but in many ways Atlantica goes beyond; it is explicitly interested in the "harmonization of regulations" between all involved areas, and in the construction of massive infrastructure projects to facilitate trade.

It is these two areas that have attracted the ire of activists. Atlantica’s detractors point out that, although AIMS cloaks its advocacy of the free-trade zone in the language of job creation and economic revitalization, the think-tank's goals are explicitly anti-poor; it brazenly describes minimum-wage legislation, unionization, and public services as "public policy distress factors." As the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives wrote in a comprehensive 2006 report, "This thinly-disguised attack on working people, public services, social programs, and democratic decision-making is very revealing about what underlies the Atlantica agenda."

It is the real-world impacts of these proposed policy changes that drives people like Price to speak up. Although the port of Halifax is central to the trade proposal, Haligonians themselves would not be spared from the effects of dropping salaries and a reduced social security net. "Just in Halifax there are 30,000 people that are a paycheque away from being out on the streets," he explains. "You just have to do the math to understand what's going to happen when minimum wage is brought down, when people are working two jobs, when working poor are struggling to make ends meet as it is."

Beyond such blatantly regressive policy solutions, however, Atlantica would involve massive infrastructure changes to eastern Canada; specifically, the establishment of the Halifax harbour as a major trade conduit between Asia and the eastern U.S. It seems counterintuitive, considering the North American west coast's close proximity to Asian markets and the longstanding use of the Panama Canal, but for AIMS, it makes perfect sense. Trade between Asia and the U.S . keeps rising, straining the capacity of Western ports, and the use of so-called "Post-Panamax" vessels - ships too huge to fit through the Panama Canal - has been on the rise since 1995. Add to this that the Halifax port is deep enough to accommodate Panamax and Post-Panamax ships, and that it is the closest major port for Asian ships travelling via the Suez Canal.

Tied to the revitalization of the Halifax port would be the construction of new highways to accommodate transport trucks ferrying goods from the Maritimes to the eastern U.S., and the loosening of transport regulations to allow increased use of massive "truck trains" - vehicles with more than one trailer per tractor. Atlantica means huge ships and huge trucks – that’s more long-distance trade and more fossil-fuel consumption in the face of climate change's looming threats.

"[The U.S. and Asian] economies are engaged in a trading relationship that's socially, environmentally, and economically unsustainable," Brendan Haley of Halifax's Ecology Action Centre told the crowd on June 15. "The vision of a few business leaders is to take the goods produced halfway around the world and ship them to another country. Nova Scotia becomes a super-highway for the Wal-Marts of the world. Our highest endeavour is to become a middleman."

Free-trade rhetoric at least used to champion market fundamentalism as a cure-all; think of that old cliché, "The rising tide lifts all boats." But Atlantica is not about lifting boats - it is about lifting post-Panamax ships, and allowing everything smaller to drown.

The evening following the main demonstration, a "victory celebration" kegger was held to raise money for legal costs. Beer and vegan burritos sold for $2 apiece, and a local punk band tore through songs with names like "Thrash Atlantica to Fucking Death." A few people joked about how the prisoners, some of whom were straight-edge, would feel about alcohol sales covering their defence fees. A more pressing question, as some present pointed out, was why the party was billed as a victory celebration when so many people were in jail.

But a deeper frustration, one expressed more quietly and privately, was directed towards those who were arrested. More than one person pointed out to me that the arrests were a headache for the anti-Atlantica movement. Some mused about what the most active organizers could be working on after the demonstration, if their time wasn’t being devoted to legal issues. One Black Bloc participant told me that he was dismayed to see a paint bomb explode inches away from an elderly woman. And, of course, the usual questions arose about confrontational, direct action: what about the movement's image? The demonstrations certainly received more press coverage thanks to the minor property damage and clashes with police, but to what end?

The proponents of Atlantica are powerful, and their ideas are uniform; influential think tanks like AIMS, the Nova Scotia and federal governments, and massive corporations like Irving (which, incidentally, owns most of the press in the Maritimes that so readily dismissed the anti-Atlantica actions), all calling for a radically different east coast in the same voice.

The movement against the free-trade area is a more heterogeneous blend of groups united against a single threat. A diversity of views, a diversity of tactics - something to welcome, certainly. But there are also deep strains that plague the movement against Atlantica; the threat of police infiltration, the tension between - as one participant described them - the "punks" and the "activists," the ever-present difficulty of building a coalition that includes both Radical Cheerleader and Raging Granny, anti-capitalist and national sovereigntist. One of the movement’s strengths is surely the wide-ranging groups that it can unify. But if diversity means division, as the aftermath of the demonstration seems to point out, then Atlantica's implementation may be inevitable.




We are Preparing for Massive Civil War, Says DHS Informant

The government has declared it can lock anyone up forever or kill them without any proof or due process. DHS has placed an order for 450 million rounds of Hollow Point ammo. Obama can now declare martial law during peace time. I think that just about says it all.
