A September 2018 night at Usal Campground's Shady Dell & Hotel Gulch

A magnificent sleeper no shouting disturbs
He is fit, mighty strong and ever so slim
Nature and cityscapes beckon to him
So camera in hand and eye attuned
Unique, artistic photographs are his very soon

The Colonial Broadcasting Corporation: As It Happens In The USA. A Vancouver publication accuses the CBC of lying to Canadians.

The Colonial Broadcasting Corporation:

As It Happens In The USA, Part Two.

A Vancouver publication accuses the CBC of lying to Canadians.

By Robin Mathews Dec. 2018

With charming irresponsibility, prime minister Justin Trudeau not only assisted what many consider the wholly improper call to bring the president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, before the International Criminal Court, he also is alleged to have (in September) misreported (at the UN) conditions in Venezuela.

The charge by the Vancouver publication The Fire This Time (Oct. 2018) of the CBC lying to Canadians involves Anna Maria Tremonti, the Current, and so-called responsible reporting about Venezuela.  The Fire This Time allegations may be timely because public impatience with false, twisted, convenient, padded news/ information delivery is growing.

The situation regarding Venezuela is complex  but, at base, very simple. The U.S., major creator of The Organization of American States (which Canada kept free from for years, but which now acts, inside, as a U.S. lackey), is often accused of wanting to control all of Central and South America.

That began with the so-called Monroe Doctrine set out in 1823  providing one of the bedrock policies for the fundamental imperialist basis of U.S. global policy.  The Doctrine, in effect, told European powers to stay out of Central and South America (the USA back yard).  The area was to belong to the USA (to exploit, to ravish, to oppress).

The attempt to have the International Criminal Court move against Nicolas Maduro followed an Organization of American States complaint against Venezuela based upon a Report by three experts of which Canada Irwin Cotler was one.  The USA does not belong to the very questionable International Criminal Court, largely because it fears actions may be taken against itself.  But it uses the ICC through proxies (like Canada) when convenient.  Donald Trump calls Venezuela a socialist regime acting with its Cuban supporters.  No condemnation (for him) could be greater.

The Anna Maria Tremonti (in Toronto) and Adrienne Arsenault (in Colombia) reporting about Venezuela apparently parroted what the USA and Justin Trudeau would say  without regard for an absolutely key fact about Venezuela.  So important was the absence of the key fact that some reasonable people believe it is fair to call the broadcast a lie.

As a part of the attempt to wreck, it seems, any Venezuelan continuation of a people-centred, independent, democratic government (in this case in the hands of socialist actors), the USA, Canada, the European Union, Switzerland, and Panama have imposed vicious, crippling sanctions upon Venezuela.  The aim is to prevent Venezuela from importing food, medicines, and other basic goods.  It is to prevent Venezuela from, in effect, using the U.S. financial system  and even from receiving the profit from the Venezuela-owned fuel industry company CITCO in the USA.

Present Venezuelan conditions have to be seen in the light of those facts.

A United Nations spokesperson has condemned the sanctions as violating Human Rights obligations. Canadians should care deeply.  And they might care deeply if they knew the facts  if the CBC, for instance, looked to some like something other than a tool of U.S. policy, however vicious.

Ms. Tremonti (CBC) is reported as allowing the elected leader of Venezuela to be called “on the broadcast“ by the extremist U.S. Ambassador to the UN, a dictator who is sacrificing the people of Venezuela.  The U.S. Ambassador apparently also declared that Nicolas Maduro is going to have to be dealt with.

According to The Fire This Time (Alison Bodine), the Anna Maria Tremonti broadcast also avoided reporting the support given by the ultra-rich to violence and terrorism, hoarding, price-gouging even smuggling and sabotage that others have reported.  Even casual observers of Venezuelan affairs cannot be unaware that repeated, violent demonstrations against the Maduro government have been organized and carried out from the wealthy sections of Caracas,Venezuela capital.

Since the attempted (and failed) coup against the leadership of Hugo Chavez in 2002 (a coup loudly celebrated at the US Embassy while believed successful), the US and its minions (Canada included) appear to have been trying to destroy the democratically elected government of Venezuela.

If The Fire Next Time report of the Anna Maria Tremonti propaganda exercise on Venezuela is accurate  then Canadians must be very concerned, very angry, and they must demand significant change.  How do we end the CBC as a continuing broadcast called As It Happens in the USA?

Within every on-going large organization there is what might be called a way of being, a way, that is, of working and acting without offending anyone (inside) or ever opening up the possibility of real difference in attitude, action, or basic belief.  In a monodrome like the Colonial Broadcasting Corporation, it appears a giant fiction is acted out that all engage in a genuine search for meaningful information, for revealing fact. 

In truth, the CBC information programs  that won't touch 9/11, the pair of 21st century False Flags involving deaths and damage to the innocent in Canada, the role of the Bank of Canada in the creation of Canadian debt; the lackey role of Canada in U.S. expansionism; the gigantic failure of Canadian government on climate change action  (the list could go on  and on)  are welded together by the unstated pledge to serve dominant power, never risking the equilibrium of the monodrome by introducing a real question or by insisting upon (as with Venezuela) an examination of the full, bare, painful truth of the situation.  To serve dominant power in Canadian broadcasting means, quite simply, running, without let-up, a continuous broadcast we may call As It Happens in the USA.

BC Legislature Speaker Darryl Plecas has the power to eject one, or all, BC Liberal MLAs, to maintain order.

With all the drama taking place in Victoria over the actions of the Speaker of the House, the public should keep in mind this, from his Darryl Plecas BC Leg Bio:
His most recent book, which he co-authored in his current role as professor emeritus at the University of the Fraser Valley, focuses on how government professionals can make better decisions.
The Book:  Introduction to Criminal Investigation: Processes, Practices and Thinking

It appears that Plecas has taken a page out of his co-authored  book to focus on ......the matters at hand, since January, August, November 2018

Speaker Plecas is wielding a mighty large verbal stick once he sits in his Chair in the Legislature.
If an MLA does not obey the rules and makes inappropriate or discourteous remarks, the Speaker will ask the member to withdraw those remarks. If the member does not comply with the Speaker's instructions, the Speaker has the power to order the MLA to withdraw from the Chamber for the day. For more serious offences, the Speaker "names" the MLA, which means the MLA may be suspended from the Legislative Assembly without pay for anywhere from one to 15 days.

If the MLA refuses to leave the Chamber as requested, the Speaker may ask the Sergeant-at-Arms to remove the member. In such a case, the offending member may be suspended for the balance of the session.

 MLA Speaker Darryl Plecas Bio via the BC Legislature

Prior to his election as MLA, Dr. Plecas was the RCMP Senior University Research Chair and Director for the Centre for Public Safety and Criminal Justice Research at the University of the Fraser Valley, where he worked for 34 years. He holds two degrees in criminology from Simon Fraser University and a doctorate in higher education from the University of British Columbia. He is the author or co-author of more than 200 books, international journal articles, and research reports addressing a broad range of public safety issues. His most recent book, which he co-authored in his current role as professor emeritus at the University of the Fraser Valley, focuses on how government professionals can make better decisions.

The only direct connection between caregiver Robert Riley Saunders and Alex Gervais's caregiver is their job? And damn their teenage victims?

 Misappropriation of funds is the name of the game

 February 6, 2017

Caregiver: Name and image not released to public
the report says Alex alleged that his caregiver was misappropriating funds that were meant to support him and leaving him alone and unsupported in the hotel.

Caregiver: Robert Riley Saunders alive and $miling

 B.C.'s representative for children and youth says her office has opened 14 files relating to teenagers who claim they were victims of a social worker accused of siphoning funds from vulnerable First Nations youth.

Gang related?  Do caregivers share their 'expertise' to others with similar criminal interests?

Scotty on Denman: the smallpox epidemic, killed so many people, the canoes were started then forgotten until we showed up a hundred years later.


1 comment:

scotty on denman said...
We were developing some timber on private land on an island near Bella Bella. Part of the job was to recognize what used to be called "Indian Trees"---now called "Culturally Modified Trees" or CMTs --- western red cedar trees, usually still alive, from which planks or bark were periodically harvested. For us it affected road location and cutting boundaries: if a CMT was pre-1864, we had to stay 300 metres away from it, and post-1864 only 100 metres away. We'd note the CMTs on the map and give it to a team of ethno-archaeologists to determine the date of "modification", that is, the removal of bark or planks, and often holes burned into the bole to test for soundness---these were being considered for canoes. We had occasion to wonder why exactly we were developing timber in an area where you literally couldn't find a spot where at least one CMT wasn't visible.

It occurred to me one day, high up on a mountain, eating lunch beside a skinny, twisted red cedar, that the pattern of CMT distribution illustrated proprietorial working of the forest: why would anybody come all the way up here, maybe a kilometre of steep, broken ground to the water, to strike a plank off a shitty little pecker-pole cedar when there were (and still are) plenty of much better candidates down by the water's edge? The answer is because the trees down by the water were owned by somebody else; the poor guy who had to crawl all the way up there to get a difficult, twisted plank wasn't allowed to harvest lower down---it didn't belong to him and he didn't have permission from the owner(s).

Hung out with the ethno-archaeologists one afternoon. Quite interesting the techniques they used to determine the age of the working, like was it done by metal or stone axe? was it burned down or chopped down (some CMTs are stumps ). But man! those guys were expensive, about $1600 per day, maybe assess two or three CMTs. Meanwhile each one of us engineers would note dozens and dozens of CMTs every single day. They're virtually everywhere up there. Heiltsuk territory. Wet, no forest fires to destroy evidence of primitive workings. We only needed to know pre-or-post-1864 but they estimated some of the workings to be several hundred years old---count the annual rings in the scar tissue around the edges of the working.

Another disturbing realization on Nootka Island was the reason why all these canoes, about ten of them, had been started but abandoned: it was the smallpox epidemic, killed so many people, the canoes were started then forgotten until we showed up a hundred years later. It was a ghostly realization.

Ken Dobell to oversee Rich Coleman's Cabinet papers regarding casino money laundering?

Was British Columbia's Attorney General David Eby grandstanding when asking the BC Liberal's Leader Andrew Wilkinson permission to liaise with former Attorney General  Mike de Jong to have access to their Executive Council / Cabinet meeting Minutes?

Eby wants to review the previous government's documents pertaining to the verbal actions of former Minister Rich Coleman where he claims recently that he did  ...  ‘everything we could’ to crack down on money laundering,”

Why does Eby have to ask for the access?   The first fifteen years after the deliberations took place eg. 2017 + 15, are not open to public disclosure  IF.......  
 Section 12 of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act
12 (1) The head of a public body must refuse to disclose to an applicant information that would reveal the substance of deliberations of the Executive Council or any of its committees, including any advice, recommendations, policy considerations or draft legislation or regulations submitted or prepared for submission to the Executive Council or any of its committees.
There has been one violation of that Act before, and it was done during the BC Rail Trial!  No waiting for 2003 + 15 years  until  NOW  2018 on the topic money laundering.

Premier Gordon Campbell sent his Deputy Premier, Ken Dobell into the vault holding Executive Council / Cabinet documents to peruse any details that were pertinent to BC Rail trial, and it was done without the permission of the Court, nor was Dobell covered by the Supreme court vetting protocol.

Three senior government insiders were charged with 'accepting bribes, influence peddling and money laundering' in the sale of BC Rail to others.

Here we are in 2018, with a new BC government checking into the previous one on what actions Rich Coleman claims he took to rein in Casino money laundering which leaves the door wide open to as to whether or not the BC Liberal government discussed not only Casino money but also the two topics of 'accepting bribes and influence peddling".

... documents could be turned over to police and which would remain secret due to cabinet "privilege."

Ken Dobell knew about this protocol.  Premier Gordon Campbell's Deputy Minister and closest adviser was kept in the loop during the protocol's development, according to a government e-mail trail.

Dobell also knew the seriousness of the situation:  Three former senior government insiders are charged with accepting bribes, influence peddling and money-laundering in the government's $1 billion sale of B.C. Rail to CN Rail.

The revelation that Dobell reviewed several of the most crucial cabinet documents in the case before releasing them to the police is mind-boggling.  He was not covered by the Supreme court protocol.  He did not sign the undertaking not to discuss the evidence.

Liberals should hand confidential money laundering documents over for independent review

B.C. Liberals should consider handing over confidential documents related to the money laundering scandal, but only to a non-partisan committee.

........ “Former minister Rich Coleman has recently said that the previous government did ‘everything we could’ to crack down on money laundering,” wrote Eby, citing the former deputy premier’s response to release of the Peter German report on money laundering.

“In that light,” continued Eby, “I am requesting that the Opposition support our efforts in fighting this criminal activity in B.C. It is our government’s desire to continue to aggressively pursue measures to counter money laundering, but to do so in a manner that does not duplicate unsuccessful efforts from previous governments.”

Scarce resources, you see.

“I am writing directly to seek your support of this effort by obtaining agreement from the members of the previous government to waive cabinet privilege on all documents relating to money laundering.”
Cabinet privilege being the convention, linked to the oath of confidentiality, that shelters cabinet minutes, documents and the like from public scrutiny for decades after the fact.

Not that Eby was suggesting a blanket waiver of the long-standing rule that protects governments of every political persuasion.

Rather: “I can commit on behalf of the government, that information from these documents would remain confidential.”

The Invitation to Mr. Wilkinson:

 August 10, 2018

Dear Mr. Wilkinson:

As you know, Dr. Peter German released his independent review of anti-money laundering practices last month.  Our government is acting quickly to implement Dr. German's recommendations.

As we proceed with the work with work of finding the best ways to implement the recommendations I am taking this opportunity to write to you with a specific request.
Former Minister Rich Coleman has recently said that the previous government did "everything we could" to crack down on money laundering.  In that light, I am requesting that the Official Opposition support our efforts in fighting this criminal activity in British Columbia.  It is our government's desire to continue to aggressively pursue measures to counter laundering, but to do so in a manner that does not duplicate unsuccessful efforts from previous governments.

In order to do this work in a manner that makes the most effective use of limited public resources, I am writing to seek your support of this effort by obtaining agreement from the members of the previous government to waive cabinet privilege on all documents relating to money laundering.

 The information found in these document would contribute to our efforts in finding ways to comprehensively end such criminal practices in BC casinos and throughout BC's economy through avoiding failed measures already attempted by previous administrations.  I can commit on behalf of the government, that information from these document would remain confidential.

If you are amendable to this proposal, please indicate your willingness to help and we will proceed with an official request to former Minister Mike De Jong, who is the designated representative of the previous government.

I look forward to your response.

Yours truly,

David Eby, QC
Attorney General


Vetting Reference: BC Legislature:  Question Period

May 8, 2008

Hon. W. Oppal: "I have exercised the responsibility I was given to determine whether to assert privilege on any government documents completely independently, free of any influence. There has been no attempt by anyone to influence my decisions. I have been left entirely to my own judgment to decide these questions, and I have not consulted with anyone other than receiving legal advice from Mr. Copley."
           B. Ralston: The Attorney General should be aware, and I'm sure he is aware, that Mr. Seckel only got involved later on. The initial protocol was different. The protocol was set up to preserve the integrity of the investigation while documents were vetted for privilege.
           Only four people were legally permitted to see those documents. All of them had to sign an undertaking that they would not disclose the document or discuss it. Mr. Dobell was not on that list. He was not permitted under the process sanctioned by Mr. Justice Dohm to see or hear about the documents, but he did.
           The government violated its undertaking, and that is a problem for the integrity of the investigation. The Attorney General, in the independent, non-partisan aspect of his office — the office he holds — has an obligation to protect the integrity of the Crown. How will he exercise that obligation here?
           Hon. W. Oppal: The answer to that question is clear and simple — by letting the court do its work.

Victoria ousts 'Prime Minister' Macdonald. Where is Vancouver City Council on B.C.’s first lieutenant-governor, Sir Joseph William "Trutch Street"?

The First Nation people of Vancouver have long sought out Vancouver City Council to remove the Trutch Street sign.

A Post from 2013:  "Trutch" we never Trusted. How about Truce, Christy?  


A BC Liberal Government Website likes to hang onto the old names database, by listing off their "Alias", like it was a crime, a fraud and to a large degree, they were.   If Grandpa called the best fishing hole in British Columbia "Rum Cache", don't look for it on the map, the name is now Cicuta Lake, south-west of Vanderhoof, well before you reach the Nechako Reservoir.

92% of 100% Reserve land was put aside for the 1% like Trutch,    by Trutch,    for Trutch!

Page 8 of  279
Land policy under Colonial B.C. 1850 - 1871

The first Indian (First Nation Land) Reserves were created in this period.  These reserves were located on southern Vancouver Island, the Fraser Valley, the Fraser Canyon, Kamloops, the Nicola Valley, the Okanagan,  and the Shuswap Lake areas.  Most of these were set up by Sir James Douglas in the early 1860's.

Douglas' reserve policy generally allowed Indians to select as much land as they wanted.  In 1861 Douglas directed the Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works, who had responsibility for laying out these early reserves, to "take measures to .... for marking out distinctly, the Indian Reserves throughout the Colony".  He added that "the extent that the Indian Reserves to be defined" was to be "as they may be pointed out by the native themselves".

This policy was dramatically reversed in 1864 - 1865 by Joseph Trutch.  As head of the colonial Department of Lands and Works, Trutch initiated a policy of reduction of the Douglas' reserves, of reluctance to allot additional reserves, and of non-recognition of the Indian's aboriginal claim  (native title).

An example of Trutch's policy of reduction can be seen along the Thompson River.  The Indians of Kamloops, Neskainlith and Shuswap Lake originally held a reserve along the north bank of the South Thompson River from Kamloops to Shuswap Lake.  This included Little Shuswap Lake and areas around Adams Lake.  In 1866 these reserves were "adjusted" by Trutch by reducing them to approximately their present size.

This policy was extended to the Fraser Valley in 1867.  It is difficult to get precise information on the location and size of the present reserves in the Fraser Valley are only remnants of the original reserves.

To learn more about these early "cut-offs" and other land grievances in the 1850 -1871 period, see the article, "Joseph Trutch and Indian Land Policy"  in B.C. Studies  (1971 - 72) by Robin Fisher.


CBC Lede: Sticker campaign targets Trutch Street signs

..... He (Trutch) also made sure Indian reserves were small, quickly overturning the generous and inclusive decisions of his colonial predecessor, Governor James Douglas.
"He reduced the reserves that Douglas had allowed for by 92% and changed the laws so that a Sto:lo family could only occupy about 10 acres of land," says Kluckner.
Trutch went on to be the first lieutenant-governor of B.C. in 1871, when the province decided to join Confederation.

"His policies and the policies of the government of the time were perfectly in keeping with serving the needs of the British government,” says documentary filmmaker Vince Hemingson.  .......

Air Quality Index Kelowna (186) vs Vancouver (24) August 13, 2018 Action needed immediately to protect peaches

Notes Training Air Raid Wardens 1941 British Columbia

Effect of the weather in gas attacks  (Page 3 of 59)

The danger from gas is increased or decreased according to the weather.

Calm Mild Weather (with or without fog).  Gas evaporates slowly.  It hangs about in strong concentration and may penetrate buildings if these are imperfectly protected.

Warm Weather.  Gas is given off more readily and mixes more easily with the surrounding air.

Cold Weather.  Gas does not rise so quickly.

Frosty Weather.  Has little effect on non-persistent gas, but may cause the liquid of mustard gas to freeze, which remains a danger if touched.  It will give off vapour again when the thaw sets in.

Rain.  Has little effect on any gas if light in character, but if heavy rain occurs it will remove the gas from the air and also wash away the liquid from the ground.

Wind.  A high wind will soon carry away the gas, as well as the vapour arising from the liquid on the ground, etc.  The rate at which this happens depends largely on the force and direction of the wind.  The gas rarely rises to more than 20 feet.

I always believed that my Grandfather died in France, close to home and the Wingate coal mines.

Recently, I came across a letter that my Mother wrote.  'Dad was MIA  Dardanelles!!!'

Not France???

He was 'recovering' from the effects of the coal dust with not a bright future ahead of him, or the family, health wise on all fronts.   With his last gasp he volunteered to go overseas.
