Threats in the name of His Royal Highness, a car rammed into our house, and menacing phone-calls to our children – This all happened to my wife and I following a meeting we had back in 2005 with journalists from the Guardian at their office in Manchester, England.

Fascism in Canada: Are Our Politicians in Oversight of Our Spy Agency (CSIS), or is CSIS in Oversight of Them?
Something has gone very wrong with our secret security/intelligence apparatus such as CSIS in Canada. They are out of control and our politicians seem too scared of them to ensure proper oversight. When these organizations go rogue, all of our liberties are threatened – this is creeping fascism.

The Bear Mountain Interchange is Langford’s “Bridge to Nowhere”. Popular sentiment on the issue would seem to encourage the “rewilding” of the space and protection of the damaged million year old karst caves and Salish cultural sites.
The prestigious UK magazine The Economist published this interesting article that outlines how wealthy crooks buy “respectability” from elements high in the London establishment and can even buy the connections to do a bit of money-laundering.
Recent Wikileaks disclosure - Former CSIS Director admits CSIS vigorously harasses citizens - That’s Stasi-style PsyOps torture in Canada - CSIS calls it D&D; the Stasi called it Zerzetsen. Has there been Contempt of Parliament in past CSIS statements denying torture? Is CSIS still an intelligence agency or has it morphed into a secret police?
The recently published research paper “ZERZETSEN TORTURE REPORT” provides a blueprint on the illegal use of the “Zerzetsen” no touch torture technique against whistle-blowers. Zerzetsen is a process of character assassination and threats – its purpose is to poison every aspect of a person’s life. CSIS practices Zerzetsen in Canada with impunity and Stephen Harper’s Government is aware of it.
A review of Denis Lehane’s recent book Unperson, A Life Destroyed quotes how this award winning journalist – “refused to work undercover for the CIA and MI5 who, in revenge, spread [false] rumours that he was insane, an alcoholic and a serial rapist …. He was [later on in London] arrested on a trumped-up charge of terrorism, forbidden to choose any lawyers, tried in his absence and condemned to a psychiatric prison”
The banking crisis was not cataclysmic; the financing bubbles that caused it had been developing for many years. So where were the banks’ auditors? Why were bank financial statements showing high levels of profitability right up to the point of the financial collapse? What went wrong with the audit of these banks? Could it have had something to do with excessive standardization? Less than a decade after Arthur Andersen, has the CA profession learnt anything?

Since the awarding of the 2010 Olympics to Vancouver and Whistler, a growing and well-informed network has emerged to raise awareness about, and resist the social, cultural, and environmental injustices taking place in the name of the Olympics. In the lead-up to the games, the Olympic torch is scheduled to pass through Kitchener as it traverses the country on its way to the west coast. We demand that the City of Kitchener back out of the torch relay, for to remain in support will breed ongoing resistance.

First it was Galloway denied and Bush permitted, then Condi Rice coming to University of Calgary on May 13, then Bush's liar Ari Fleischer hired by the Prime Minister's Office, now Bush and Clinton will appear at the Toronto Convention Center, Friday, May 29. But there's more...
Well, this is a big surprise! Since being issued firearms in December of 2005, complaints against members of the South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority Police Service (a.k.a. “Skypigs”) have dramatically increased.
Anarchists and Marxists have not always agreed on very much. Indeed, Karl Marx and his anarchist contemporary and rival, Mikhail Bakunin, were especially prone to disagree with one another. But there was one key political judgment of which they both became convinced: that "the emancipation of the working class must be the act of workers themselves." But how relevant is this old, 19th century term...for today's struggles for social and environmental justice, and for political and economic democracy?
