The Most Dangerous Man In America, Daniel Ellsberg-The Pentagon Papers

I saw this documentary movie this week and recommend it to everyone,it provides insight to the lengths the government went to start, and continue illegal war actions in Vietnam. It contains actual footage and testimony documenting US government corruption and shows the apathy of the people to do something about it. A very good movie. I rate it a 5/5.

BAN Credit Default Swaps in Canada NOW !! and Review Goldman Sachs Canada ASAP!!

CANADA Must Ban Credit Derivatives as Traders Demand Gold
Canadian MP's ,Senate, and bank regulators should act immediately to abolish credit default swaps in Canada, because these derivatives will foment distortions in global currencies and gold. Failure to act now will only mean Canada will be forced to act after these "financial weapons of mass destruction" levy heavy casualties(as they have in Greece, Italy, Iceland and 20+ other nations destroying the country). These obligations now settle in euros, but the end game is to settle them in gold. This is so ripe for speculative manipulation that you might as well cover the map with a bull's-eye. Credit default swaps are not insurance.THEY ARE A SCAM!! If you buy fire insurance on your home, you must own the house. If you buy credit protection on the markets, or on Canada however, you do not need to own ...ANYONE CAN SEE MR HARPER MADE A MISTAKE ALLOWING THIS PRACTICE, AND ALLOWING GOLDMAN SACHS IN CANADA!!!!!
HARPER wants to "open Canada for business" he is an idiot ,Harper thinks because he received a degree in economics he is savvy but his degree is toilet paper. PM Harper is either colluding with the enemies or he is the most stupid, non observant leader Canada has ever had. Even a child on hearing this story on the news knew and commented "that sounds crooked"

ASPARTAME IS SUPER DANGEROUS *DANGER*AVOID*

Aspartame producer Ajinomoto is launching a new initiative that will rebrand the sweetener as “AminoSweet”.
Aspartame is used in many foods and beverages marketed as low calorie or sugar-free. However, its reputation has been clouded somewhat by studies that have investigated reports of ill effects.
Just to remind you, the side effects of aspartame can include:
* Headache
* Change in vision
* Convulsions and seizures
* Hallucination
* Nausea and vomiting
* Joint pain
It can cause many, many other problems as well.
Dr. Mercola’s Comments:
Aspartame is the most controversial food additive in history, and its approval for use in food was the most contested in FDA history and reviewed very little in Canada. In the end, the artificial sweetener was approved, not on scientific grounds, but rather because of strong political and financial pressure. After all, aspartame was previously listed by the Pentagon as a biochemical warfare agent!
It’s hard to believe such a chemical would be allowed into the food supply, but it was, and it has been wreaking havoc with people’s health for the past 30+ years.
The truth is, it should never have been released onto the market, and allowing it to remain in the food chain is seriously hurting people – no matter how many times you rebrand it under new names.
Deceptive Marketing of Aspartame
Sold commercially under names like NutraSweet, Canderel, and now AminoSweet, aspartame can be found in more than 6,000 foods, including soft drinks, chewing gum, table-top sweeteners, diet and diabetic foods, breakfast cereals, jams, sweets, vitamins, prescription and over-the-counter drugs.DO NOT EAT!!!
Aspartame producer Ajinomoto chose to rebrand it under the name AminoSweet, to “remind the industry that aspartame tastes just like sugar, and that it’s made from amino acids – the building blocks of protein that are abundant in our diet.”
This is deception at its finest: Begin with a shred of truth, and then spin it to fit your own agenda.
In this case, the agenda is to make you believe that aspartame is somehow a harmless, natural sweetener made with two amino acids that are essential for health and present in your diet already.
They want you to believe aspartame delivers all the benefits of sugar and none of its drawbacks. But nothing could be further from the truth.
How Aspartame Wreaks Havoc on Your Health
Did you know there have been MORE reports to the FDA for aspartame reactions than for ALL other food additives combined.??
In fact, there are over 10,000 official complaints in the U.S. and thousands in Canada too, but by the FDA’s own admission, less than 1 percent of those who experience a reaction to a product ever report it. So in all likelihood, the toxic effects of aspartame may have affected roughly a million people already.
While a variety of symptoms have been reported, almost two-thirds of them fall into the neurological and behavioral category consisting mostly of headaches, mood alterations, and hallucinations. The remaining third is mostly gastrointestinal symptoms.
Familiarize your self with some of the terrifying side-effects and health problems you could encounter if you consume products containing this chemical.
Unfortunately, aspartame toxicity is not well-known by doctors, despite its frequency. Diagnosis is also hampered by the fact that it mimics several other common health conditions, such as:
Multiple sclerosis Parkinson’s disease
Alzheimer’s disease Fibromyalgia
Arthritis Multiple chemical sensitivity
Chronic fatigue syndrome Attention deficit disorder
Panic disorder Depression and other psychological disorders
Lupus Diabetes and diabetic complications
Birth defects Lymphoma
Lyme disease Hypothyroidism
How Diet Foods and Drinks CAUSE Weight Problems
In recent years, food manufacturers have increasingly focused on developing low-calorie foods and drinks to help you maintain a healthy weight and avoid obesity. Unfortunately, the science behind these products is so flawed, most of these products can actually lead to increased weight gain!
For example, researchers have discovered that drinking diet soda increases your risk of metabolic syndrome, and may double your risk of obesity – the complete opposite of the stated intention behind these “zero calorie” drinks.
The sad truth is that diet foods and drinks ruin your body’s ability to count calories, and in fact stimulate your appetite, thus boosting your inclination to overindulge.
Unfortunately, most public health agencies and nutritionists in the United States recommend these toxic artificial sweeteners as an acceptable alternative to sugar, which is at best confusing and at worst harming the health of those who take their misguided advice.
Even More Toxic Dangers of Aspartame
Truly, there is enough evidence showing the dangers of consuming artificial sweeteners. If you or your loved ones drink diet beverages or eat diet foods, you’ve been deceived about the truth behind artificial sweeteners like aspartame and sucralose — for greed, for profits, and at the expense of your health.
As mentioned earlier, almost two-thirds of all documented side effects of aspartame consumption are neurological.
One of the reasons for this side effect, researchers have discovered, is because the phenylalanine in aspartame dissociates from the ester bond. While these amino acids are indeed completely natural and safe, they were never designed to be ingested as isolated amino acids in massive quantities, which in and of itself will cause complications.
Additionally this will also increase dopamine levels in your brain. This can lead to symptoms of depression because it distorts your serotonin/dopamine balance. It can also lead to migraine headaches and brain tumors through a similar mechanism.
The aspartic acid in aspartame is a well-documented excitotoxin. Excitotoxins are usually amino acids, such as glutamate and aspartate. These special amino acids cause particular brain cells to become excessively excited, to the point that they die.
Excitotoxins can also cause a loss of brain synapses and connecting fibers. A review conducted in 2008 by scientists from the University of Pretoria and the University of Limpopo found that consuming a lot of aspartame may inhibit the ability of enzymes in your brain to function normally, and may lead to neurodegeneration.
According to the researchers, consuming a lot of aspartame can disturb:
* The metabolism of amino acids
* Protein structure and metabolism
* The integrity of nucleic acids
* Neuronal function
* Endocrine balances
Furthermore, the ester bond in aspartame breaks down to formaldehyde and methanol, which are also toxic in their own right. So it is not surprising that this popular artificial sweetener has also been found to cause cancer.
One truly compelling case study that shows this all too well was done by a private citizen named Victoria Inness-Brown. She decided to perform her own aspartame experiment on 108 rats over a period of 2 years and 8 months.
Daily, she fed some of the rats the equivalent (for their body weight) of two-thirds the aspartame contained in 8-oz of diet soda. Thirty-seven percent of the females fed aspartame developed tumors, some of massive size.
How to Ditch Artificial Sweeteners, and Satiate Your Sweet Tooth
If you suffer from sweet cravings, it’s easy to convince yourself you’re doing the right thing by opting for a zero-calorie sweetener like aspartame. Please understand that you will do more harm than good to your body this way.
First, it’s important to realize that your body craves sweets when you’re not giving it the proper fuel it needs.
Finding out your nutritional type will tell you exactly which foods you need to eat to feel full and satisfied. It may sound hard to believe right now, but once you start eating right for your nutritional type, your sweet cravings will significantly lessen and may even disappear.
Meanwhile, be sure you address the emotional component to your food cravings.
And, if diet soda is the culprit for you, be sure to get rid of your soda addiction in a short period of time.
Non-Acceptable Alternative Sweeteners
I am absolutely convinced that fructose ingestion is at the core of our obesity epidemic.
And I’m not only talking about high fructose corn syrup, which is virtually identical to table sugar. The only major difference between the two is HFCS is much cheaper so it has contributed to massive increase in fructose ingestion, far beyond safe or healthy.
Please understand you need to keep your fructose levels BELOW 25 grams per day. The best way to do that is to avoid sweeteners as they are loaded with a much higher percentage of fructose than HFCS.
Please note that avoiding beyond 25 grams per day is crucial.
Acceptable Alternative Sweeteners
For those times when you just want a taste of something sweet, your healthiest alternative is Stevia. It’s a natural plant and, unlike aspartame and other artificial sweeteners that have been cited for dangerous toxicities, it is a safe, natural alternative that’s ideal if you’re watching your weight, or if you’re maintaining your health by avoiding sugar.
It is hundreds of times sweeter than sugar and truly has virtually no calories.
Stevia as my sweetener of choice, and I frequently use it. However, like most choices, especially sweeteners, I recommend using Stevia in moderation, just like sugar. In excess it is still far less likely to cause metabolic problems than sugar or any of the artificial sweeteners.
I want to emphasize, that if you have insulin issues, I suggest that you avoid sweeteners altogether, including Stevia, as they all can decrease your sensitivity to insulin.
Lo han is another sweetener like Stevia. It’s an African sweet herb that can also be used, but it’s a bit more expensive and harder to find.
So if you struggle with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes or extra weight, then you have insulin sensitivity issues and would benefit from AVOIDING ALL sweeteners.
If you are going to sweeten your foods and beverages, I strongly encourage you to consider using regular Stevia or Lo han, and toss out all artificial sweeteners and any products that contain them.
If you have experienced an adverse reaction to any aspartame product,goto a doctor, get proof and tell, or ask your MP, Senate, Ministry of Health,to ban them or at least put health warnings on these products or you could start a class action lawsuit and SUE the producers or regulatory bodies, but definitely stop consuming these toxic products today!!
Take care and eat organic healthy food. THANKS TIM

Glucose syrup, fructose, dextrose: All made from starch
Source: USDA's "Amber Waves."

Possible examples include:
*
genetically modified sweetcorn (in tins)*;
*
GM tomatoes**;
*
GM potatoes**;
*
raw salad from GM chicory** ; and
*
GM salmon**.

* = approved in the EU, but not available
** = the respective GM plants or GM animals are not approved in the EU at present

Food, ingredients or additives, which are produced from GMOs.
For labelling, it is irrelevant if the GMOs used are detectable in the end product.
At present, possible products include those made from GM soy beans and GM maize:
*
Oil from GM soy beans;
*
margarine from GM soy bean oil;
*
Oil from GM rapeseed/canola;
*
cornflakes from GM corn;
*
starch from GM corn;
*
bread with GM soy protein or GM soy flour; and
*
*glucose (dextrose), glucose syrup and other ingredients with GM corn starch.**
*
peanut puff snacks, tacos containing GM corn starch.
Additives which are produced from GM plants also must be labelled, and include:
*
sugar from GM sugar beet;
*
lecithin from GM soy beans;
*
vitamin E (tocopherol) from GM soy beans; and
*
cellulose from GM cotton, used as thickening agents and binder.
Further products which must be labelled, but for which at present there are no approved GMOs:
*
tomato sauce from GM tomatoes;
*
chips from GM potatoes;
*
starch from GM potatoes or GM wheat;

Food, ingredients and additives which contain genetically modified organisms:
This category applies primarily to food produced with GM microorganisms, and includes:
*
wheat beer with GM yeast;
*
yeast extract from GM yeast;
*
yoghurt with GM lactobacilli (lactic acid bacteria);
*
salami (raw sausages) with GM lactobacilli (lactic acid bacteria);
*
blue cheese with GM moulds; and
*
Quorn (protein from protazoa) from GM fungi.
To date, no GM yeast, GM bacteria or GM fungi are approved in the EU for use in food.

Labelling. Additives that are produced with the help of genetically modified microorganisms do not require labelling
beacuse GMOs are not directly associated with the final product. Because the final product is carefully purified
and does not contain any genetically modified organisms, vitamins and additives made in this way are not subjected
to special regulations or labelling requirements.
In some cases, amino acids and enzymes are not legally considered foods. Rather, they are known as processing aids.
This is why there is no legal requirement to declare these additives on the list of ingredients.

Do You Believe In UFO's ?

In Canada the Ministry of Defence declassified documents pertaining to over 9000 sightings.(Link Below) In the US. there has been over 2 million sightings since 1945. Also tens of thousands in Mexico the only country to officially admit they exist.There are thousands of video, and pictures of them. Some proven hoax's for attention but many have been "confirmed" real. Several NASA astronauts have reported them and the conversation and video captured by NASA.There are even references to them in the bible.
I came across some funny / interesting sights with some different aspects to the "debate" -- What do you think?--

The US Takes Over Haiti, Installs Puppet Regime, and Now Wants Their Oil Too.

The U.S. after staging a "coup" against Haiti's President (democratically elected 74%) Dr.Jean-Bertrand Aristide in Feb.2004 a claim the U.S. denied and then accused the former priest of being a drug dealer. They should know a drug deal, they've been doing it for years, remember the Oliver North drugs and guns scandal?? Also a coincidence that Afghanistan went from little heroin production under the Taliban to top producer under the U.S, watch full eye. I think not. Aristide's lawyer accused the US of giving guns and support to anti Aristide forces. Aristide later stated that France and the U.S. had a role in what he termed "a kidnapping" that took him from Haiti to South Africa. Aristide had told them that he had been forced to resign and had been abducted from the country by the United States and that he had been held hostage by armed military guards. Aristide again asserted that the U.S. had deposed him. Many area nations asked the U.N. to investigate but they didn't after pressure from France and the U.S.
Aristide published a book in 2000 about anti-globalization titled; The Eyes of the Heart: Seeking a Path for the Poor in the Age of Globalization. In it he sites the
I.M.F. and the World Bank as contributing to the economic downfall of the small nation and promising money they paid interest on but had never received.
Now as it turns out the U.S. wants to develop Haiti's newly found oil. The U.S. has
set up former presidents, B. Clinton and G.Bush to oversee the countries development,
calling them "special envoys". (Oh gee whizz, "drug man" from Arkansas(where the planes landed) and oil man from hell)



Just after the earthquake Dr. Jean-Bertrand Aristide made a statement regarding the victims of the earthquake.(Open in new tab.)CLICK HERE for Letter. Also one can watch the documentary by Noam Chomsky, "Aristide The Endless Revolution." for further background on Aristide and Haiti.

JUST A FEW STORY'S FOR YOU TO PONDER TODAY

HERE's THE JOKE OF THE DAY:
A mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a Harley motorcycle when he spotted a well-known heart surgeon in his shop.
The surgeon was there, waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his bike.
The mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey, Doc, can I ask you a question???"

The surgeon a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic working on the hog. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take valves out, fix 'em, put 'em back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I get such a small salary and you get the really big bucks, when you and I are doing basically the same work?"

The surgeon paused, smiled and leaned over, then whispered to the mechanic...
"Try doing it with the engine running."

Canada Needs The Libertarian Party .....NOW.

I've been thinking of solutions rather than getting bogged down by the many problems that face us all. Here is the solution and the place to start....

Definition: Libertarian: –noun
1.
a person who advocates liberty, esp. with regard to thought or conduct.
2.
a person who maintains the doctrine of free will (distinguished from necessitarian).
–adjective
3.
advocating liberty or conforming to principles of liberty.
4.
maintaining the doctrine of free will.

Here are my new - Libertarian Party Platforms -
I LOVE CANADA......but,
Canada has some serious flaws in its political system. Too many lobbyists, too many monopoly's, too many tax's, too many centralized and federal powers and laws, unfair election representation and laws, biased news media supporting poor candidate choices and representatives, and these are just a few that come to mind.

The Answer?? -The Libertarian Party- FOR CANADA
We also need some libertarian representatives in our current party system.(People resist the unknown, and change out of fear.)
Freedom is the answer, now whats the question?
Here are some libertarian points / thoughts and platforms we need to hear.....because the smallest rights are individual rights.
For a true north strong AND free.
Libertarian = Independence / "Rights to Individuals." / "Power to the People." /
Co-op = co-operation and not co-opted. / "NO person has more power than another." /
"Don't be ruled." / "Individual Sovereignty." / "Legally emancipated." /
"It's a love-a-lution and NOT a revolution"
"Libertarians are pro choice on everything." / "Consent is yours to give." /
"No harm to anyone" / "Consistence is good" /"Big is bad, small is secure" /
I'm not saying business is bad, I'm saying BIG business is bad....
"A heavy left wing OR right wing is divisive and bad = a big gap" / Barter is Good /
"Individual Liberty And Responsibility" / "Do Not Be Afraid" /"Grassroots Solutions,-
Not Corporate" / "Declare your Independence" /a limit for government and corporations
My goal is to present this message, to start the conversation, respect opinions and look for consistency. Freedom is the answer,what's the question?
These platforms are like good healthy organic food, easily digested, good for us all.
Today's message is of positive change, it's not based on fear, or corrupted and when
understood, it is empowering. It is for everyone. The message can be applied to all situations, and that is part of its beauty. It is NOT divisive because it is about individual rights and your can't really get smaller then individual rights can you.
When applied it's consistent, constant, self empowering, and yet social and co-operative. Unlike current policy and politic s which can be divided by race, religion, color, creed, wealth,affiliation. Local and libertarian is the answer for everything. It empowers you, it gives you / us hope, answers, a conversation,and social networks,I say again, because the smallest rights ARE individual rights.
- FREEDOM IS THE ANSWER, NOW WHAT'S THE QUESTION ? -
Please Send Me Your questions,comments, email, help, share this blog and its contents with others. Thank You. Tim Together we can create change.

Do You Feel You Have The Right To Privacy?

Well if you answered yes. You have been mislead. Currently in Canada in regards to all digital media ie;(computer,cell) your right does NOT exist.
"Big Brother IS Watching"
How So? you say...Eg: Every time that you have used the internet when you see http: in your browser that is a fully monitored transmission.
By Who? Microsoft, your I.S.P.(eg:Bell) and Googhell (yes googhell, my affectionate term for "them") and other companies, use this code type as a means to ID what you see (tied to your mac address, and name by your bill.) All googhell searches you have ever done have been stored in their massive data bases.Your I.S.P. tells them who you are.(name and other data)
Also if you have a Facebook, Twitter, account all that info is also attached, including the stuff you've erased,it is also filed together with your profile in your googhell / I.S.P. profile. This can also include every single website you or a family member has ever visited, even the ones you or other person,while you weren't around "stumbled on" by accident.
Who cares? or Why? This is the essence of privacy it self. Your profile (and ALL users have one) is NOT anonymous. Your profile can include more info about you and your habits or perceived inclinations then you even know about yourself. These profiles currently can be shared or sold by them (your I.S.P. and Googhell and "security") and now that internet bills in the U.S. and soon here and everywhere are / will be passed, they share them with your government/ company and its favorite security services and/ or companies.
"But I haven't done anything" Well you may/ could think that but every ones profile can/ will show other-wise. Also it could become someone else best interest to surreptitiously use your profile to discredit or prevent you from your perceived freedoms or job or travel or what ever.(eg: person running for post eg:MP, mayor, or job.)We too can become a "police state" like the U.S., China and others are more and more. Just a thought.

P.M. Harper may "backdoor" BILLC-15 into Parliament?


Despite a petition signed by many supporters of Compassion Clubs and testimony from
representatives and experts to the Senate.(see video) The (P.C.)s and Harper may use
prorogation as a "backdoor" to reintroduce BILL C-15. to parliament again despite the lack of support for their unpopular bill. The BILL C-15 includes possibly introducing mandatory minimums,(despite proof they are costly and ineffective in the U.S. also creating "super-prison" systems.). The further increased criminalization of marijuana is NOT supported by the majority of Canadians.(Polls vary 60-85%) We must NOT support ineffective government / police policy.
Compassion Clubs are safe and effective at helping sick people receive their needed medicine and care. Medicine that "big pharma" can't deliver. Marijuana should also be listed in the Pharmaceutical Drugs Guide for inclusion, so the sick can receive medicine they may not be able to afford.(ie:read article in news)

COMMENTARY and related NEWS.
---------------------------

As expected, the rightist Harper regime this week announced plans to
appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada, to undo a provincial court
ruling allowing Insite, the supervised injection site in Vancouver,
B.C. It wasn't that Justice Minister Rob Nicholson was ordered by
party apparatchiks to loudly oppose Insite as a sop and distraction
tossed to the conservative political base, oh no! Rather, it is that
the existence of Insite raises abstruse legal points, "regarding the
doctrine of inter-jurisdictional immunity and the division of powers
between the federal and provincial governments," - points which the
justice minister feels obligated to explore.
When confronted with the need for a needle exchange - inside prisons
- government faces a dilemma. Allow a needle exchange which would
save lives (not to mention future health care costs) but in so
doing, admit not even the prohibition of prison walls keeps out
drugs. Or, to not admit the regular breaches of prison security and
futility of prohibition, by not allowing needle exchanges in prison.
While supporting needle exchange in prison, a piece in the Canadian
Chronicle Herald newspaper this week nicely glosses over this larger
issue. "In an ideal world, it would be impossible to smuggle drugs
into a jail, and that would solve the problem. But the real world is
not water-tight, and where there is a will, there is a way." Which
sums up the failure of prohibition.
In a heroic action to save children from the clutches of drugs, the
RCMP raided a medicinal marijuana dispensary in icy Nunavut, Canada
Jan. 29, sparing countless young lives from the death and
degradation which accompanies drug use. The proprietor of Nunavut's
first medical cannabis dispensary, Ed deVries, 51, instead claimed
that more than 500 citizens of Iqaluit (about 7% of the town) were
registered with Health Canada as legally able to use cannabis for
medicine. Eric Idlaut, of the Qikiqtaaluk Compassionate Society:
"Elders who use marijuana as medicine would benefit from having a
place they can obtain it without having to pay street prices."
The Arizona Republic this week ran a lengthy article on the newest
slogan to be repeated about Mexico. Because of the "drug cartels"
you see, we must now repeat the following mantra: "Mexico is a
'Narco-State'". Grudgingly, the Republic mentions legalization - if
only to immediately dismiss such an idea (which it buries near the
end of this whopper of an article). The real take home and take
action message the Republic would have us believe? The "government
needs to focus on the prosecution of crimes" - Mexico isn't jailing
enough of its own people. Because, you know, throwing lots of people
in jail always solves drug problems. Will Mexico never learn this
fact from the more enlightened United States?

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

"The wave of the future is not the conquest of the world by a single
dogmatic creed but the liberation of the diverse energies of free
nations and free men." - John F. Kennedy

-----THE JUSTICE MINISTER HAS SWITCHED SIDES (flip-flopped) ON SENTENCING----

Rob Nicholson Was Vice-Chairman Of A 1988 Parliamentary Committee That Opposed Fixed Sentences
Justice Minister Rob Nicholson, one of Canada's most vocal champions of fixed minimum prison sentences, once opposed the idea of removing discretion for judges to sentence as they see fit.
As a Tory backbencher in 1988, Nicholson was vice-chairman of a parliamentary committee that rejected the expansion of automatic incarceration, asserting that it doesn't work, overcrowds jails and takes too hefty of a social and financial toll.
The sweeping report on sentencing, based on a yearlong study of the criminal justice system, concluded that judges should follow guidelines, but that "each case should be decided on its own facts."
Two decades later, mandatory minimum jail terms are central to the Harper government's law-and-order agenda.
Nicholson, as justice minister for the last three years, has aggressively pushed for automatic incarceration for selling drugs, growing marijuana, white-collar crime and offences involving guns.
He has repeatedly accused his political opponents of being soft on crime for challenging his get-tough approach.
Most recently, he blasted the Senate when it amended a key bill designed to impose automatic prison terms for a variety of drug-related crimes, by redrafting a component that would jail pot growers who cultivate as few as five plants.
The bill died when Prime Minister Stephen Harper suspended Parliament in late December, but Nicholson said last week he will revive his proposed legislation.
Nicholson's press secretary, Pamela Stephens, said that times have changed since the 1988 report and the government's plans for mandatory minimums have "evolved" to reflect society's demand for tougher penalties for serious crimes.
"I can't get into a debate about minimum penalties, but as a government we believe that it is the role of the legislators to reflect the citizens who elected them, and it is the role of the legislator to give guidance on maximum penalties as well as minimum penalties," Stephens said.
Drug trafficking, for instance, is now fuelled by organized crime and therefore demands harsh penalties, she said.
Stephens pointed out that the previous Liberal government also created many mandatory minimum sentences and the Conservatives have been building on that list, which now stands at 43. New Democrat Libby Davies said Nicholson's apparent change shows that the Harper Conservatives are more ideologically driven on crime than were the former Tories.
"I think it does show very much a difference, between the old Conservatives and today's Conservatives, which are hell bent on this ideological agenda of being tough on crime," said Davies, who strongly opposes minimum prison terms for drug crimes.
"This is all that Stephen Harper's got and they have wrapped themselves in that and they have played on people's fear."
The vast majority of witnesses who appeared at Senate and House of Commons committee hearings on Nicholson's drug-sentencing bill lambasted mandatory minimums.
Several American states have retreated from mandatory minimum sentences for drug crimes in recent years, amid mounting evidence they have a disproportionate effect on young people, visible minorities and the poor, yet haven't made a difference in curtailing the drug trade.
At the time of the 1988 report, minimum mandatory terms existed in the Criminal Code for murder, treason, drunk driving causing injury or death and the more minor offence of bookmaking. The justice committee 22 years ago opted against wider expansion, as recommended a year earlier by a sentencing commission. The committee recommended only violent sexual assault carry a term of at least 10 years. The former Liberal government dramatically increased the list, imposing fixed incarceration terms for a variety of gun-related crimes, as part of its 1995 gun-control package, and later, for nine child exploitation crimes.

---SAFE-INJECTION SITE TO GO TO TOP COURT---

The federal government plans to ask the Supreme Court of Canada to overturn a B.C. ruling that allowed a safe-injection site to remain open, Justice Minister Rob Nicholson said Tuesday.
"This case raises important questions regarding the doctrine of inter-jurisdictional immunity and the division of powers between the federal and provincial governments," he said.
"We recognize that injection drug users need assistance," he said. "This is why our National Anti-Drug strategy focuses on prevention and access to treatment for those with drug dependencies."
Nicholson said the B.C. Court of Appeal and the Government of Canada both believe it is important that the Supreme Court of Canada be asked to rule on this matter.

FIGHTING CRIME ON EMOTION, NOT FACTS
When you look beyond the paternalism, cynicism, genuine concern -- whatever motives drive the Harper government's punitive approach to crime -- only one question matters. Is it effective?
Will closing Vancouver's safe injection site, Insite, reduce drug addiction and related crime? Will imposing six-month minimum jail sentences on anyone caught with as few as five marijuana plants inhibit pot-smoking among teenagers? Will expanding prisons reduce violence in our streets?
Most legal experts, criminologists, addiction researchers and street-level health workers, along with many police chiefs and past reports from parliamentary committees, say "no" -- as does the experience of other "tough-on-crime" jurisdictions.
It may be emotionally satisfying to punish evil, or express revulsion, with harsher sentences, but it is widely held -- by those who actually work in the field -- that prevention, better policing, services for the mentally ill and poverty alleviation are more useful if
the goal is to make communities safer. The Liberals even used to believe that, before they became bashful.
But this government mistrusts experts, rejects evidence that doesn't confirm its own beliefs and dismisses critics as weak and deluded. It seems to believe most criminals, like wilful teenagers, only need the threat of a few months in the slammer to see the light -- downplaying the fact that so many crimes are impulsive, and so many criminals mentally ill, addicted, or scarred by horrific abuse themselves. Not the types, in other words, to consider consequences before they act.
And curiously, despite its righteousness, the government isn't above resorting to mendacity itself. Both Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Justice Minister Rob Nicholson, for instance, have excoriated the "Liberal-dominated" Senate for, in Harper's words, "eviscerating law and order measures urgently needed and strongly supported by Canadians."
In fact, as Senate Liberal leader James Cowan outlined convincingly this week, it was the unexpected prorogation of Parliament that "gutted" the Conservative anti-crime agenda.
Last session, the government introduced 19 crime bills and 11 were still before the Commons at prorogation. Of the eight that went to the Senate, four were passed. Two were still being debated when Harper pulled the plug, and another -- a Senate-initiated attempt to end the long-gun registry -- was withdrawn after a similar Commons bill passed.
Another bill, which would prevent convicts from subtracting two days from their
sentences for every one day already served, was passed by the Senate in October and only died because cabinet didn't enact it quickly enough.
Nor was a bill cracking down on auto theft stalled in the Senate for six months, as Nicholson claimed -- at least, not entirely by Liberal senators. The delay was partly the result of a scheduled summer break.
Only the marijuana bill -- it would impose a mandatory minimum six months in jail for anyone caught with five or more plants -- was significantly amended. After hearing from a parade of witnesses that mandatory minimums are ineffective in dealing with drug crimes ( a conclusion backed by a 2001 Justice Department report ), Liberal senators voted to leave it to judges to decide sentences for anyone caught with fewer than 200 plants.
An irritated Nicholson has vowed to reintroduce the bill in March, when Parliament resumes -- but here's another curiosity. The Hill Times reported recently that, in 1988, Nicholson, then a Progressive Conservative MP, was vice-chair of a Commons committee that recommended against mandatory minimums, except for repeat violent sex offenders. Asked about this apparent change of heart, the minister's spokesperson noted the drug world and values have changed. But the facts haven't.
As New Democrat Libby Davies noted: "What they are doing is not based on evidence, whatsoever. It's a political stance."
The same can be said of Harper's implacable resistance to Insite -- a modest clinic in Vancouver's downtown east side, where addicts can get clean needles and access to medical care. The clinic doesn't provide drugs, but, through a legal exemption, allows addicts to administer their own narcotics.
Intended to get addicts out of back alleys and reduce the transmission of disease through dirty needles, the pioneering clinic has considerable community support: Leading B.C. politicians, provincial courts, Vancouver police, doctors and, after initial resistance, local businesses. But the Harper government has announced it will challenge the special exemption at the Supreme Court, because it believes the clinic encourages drug use.
It doesn't bother providing facts, or even arguments; it appeals, as usual, to resentment, ignorance and frightening headlines that obscure the fact that crime rates have been declining. And, with the brave exception of Bloc Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe, most of Harper's political opponents, including those who know better, are afraid to object.
If Conservatives were as concerned with victims as they claim to be, the effectiveness of crime-fighting measures would be paramount -- not their political appeal. And they'd be counselling wisdom in this complex issue, not revenge.

-----WAR ON DRUGS AN ABJECT FAILURE-------
Prime Minister Stephen Harper dropped by the provincial legislature last week for a feel-good speech about B.C. and the Winter Olympics, but he didn't stop to take any questions from anyone.
That's too bad, as his aversion to having anything to do with the media means he's able to duck some pressing issues.
I certainly had a question or two of my own. I wasn't planning to spend gobs of time talking about the irony ( or, some say, hypocrisy ) of him addressing a provincial legislature after he untimely prorogued his own federal house.
And I wasn't particularly interested in grilling him over his government's economic plan, its problems in Afghanistan or even potential election timing.
But I did have a question or two about one of his government's dumbest moves in recent days that have a direct bearing on this province.
That would be the Conservative government's decision to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada a B.C. Court of Appeal ruling that Vancouver's Downtown Eastside safe injection site ( Insite ) is a legal operation and should be allowed to remain open.
Harper has already lost two key court challenges on this. In trying yet again to get the courts to follow his ideologically based prejudice, critics say he has abandoned common sense, strong legal analysis and sound public policy.
There is no question Insite is a controversial facility. The idea that governments and the health-care system implicitly inject themselves into an illegal activity - consumption of banned drugs - strikes many as wrong.
But those who oppose the existence of Insite - where addicts are given a secure place to take drugs, such as heroin, with sterile needles - conveniently ignore a larger truth that underscores the need for places such as Insite. That would be the fact that our whole approach to illegal drugs - the so-called "war on drugs" - has been a complete, abject failure.
To stick to the conventional method of dealing with drug addiction ( i.e. prosecute addicts and do everything possible to deny them access to drugs ) is a head-in-the-sand approach that is not only wrong but also dangerous.
Addicts are sick people. Simply telling them to stop taking drugs is a useless approach. Some will engage in criminal activity, such as robbery, to find ways to pay for their drugs.
As well, drug addiction is an illness and a medical condition. If not treated as such - at the very least, ensuring addicts access to safe conditions when it comes to consuming the drugs their bodies now need - - invites compounding the threat of an already potentially dangerous situation.
Serious diseases such as HIV and Hepatitis C can result from dirty needle use, and that threatens non-addicts ( to say nothing of the fact that it adds even more costs to our already too-expensive health-care system ).
Renowned medical experts such as Dr. Gabor Mate ( a staff physician at Insite ), the province's chief medical health officer Dr. Perry Kendall and many others all agree that, from a medical and health standpoint, Insite makes complete sense.
Even the B.C. Liberal government, a supposedly right-wing regime, supports Insite's continued existence. These positions are all rooted in evidence-based analysis. For example, the number of drug overdose deaths has declined remarkably, and so has drug-related crime in Insite's neighbourhood.
Yet the Harper government continues to cling to the out-dated and unworkable notion that simply cracking down on addicts and "forcing" them to drop their habits is best approach.
This is an example of the occasional ideological extremism that critics of his government fear will come with increased regularity should it ever hold a majority position in government.
Holding power in a minority parliament provides significant checks on Harper's power to go too far in any particular position. He must pick his way carefully.
Will we see other ideology-based changes to health policy should the Tories ever win a majority? Why cling to the failed policies of the past? Why not shed your ideological blinkers and embrace a proven success story such as Insite?
All good questions, and all ones I would love to have posed to him when he was in Victoria. But he simply wasn't interested in talking to anyone.

--------------RCMP RAIDS 'MEDICINAL MARIJUANA' CLUB----------------

Charges Laid Against Two Men Involved With Qikiqtaaluk Compassionate Society
IQALUIT - The RCMP raided Nunavut's first compassion club selling marijuana for medicinal use Jan. 29, and charged two men with drug trafficking.
Police seized two pounds of marijuana, $7,200 in cash, a GMC Yukon and trafficking materials during a search of two Iqaluit residences, according to an RCMP press release.
Ed deVries, 51, was charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking and possession of proceeds of crime. Sakku Kripinak, 30, was charged with one count of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.
Both are members and organizers of the Qikiqtaaluk Compassionate Society, which received societal status under the Nunavut Societies Act on Dec. 14.
DeVries was released with conditions and is next scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 15. Kripinak was also released and is scheduled to appear in court on May 7.
"I know that Mr. deVries was subject of the search and seizure and subsequent charges," RCMP Supt. Steve McVarnock said. "But again, whether or not it was in relation to his club or whether it was personal, that's all got to come out in the court process."
When pressed about the relationship between the bust and the compassion club, McVarnock said: "My understanding is that it is associated. The compassion club is associated to the investigation."
In an interview prior to his arrest, deVries said more than 500 people in Iqaluit, a city of nearly 7,000 people, were registered with the society, including elders, and the list was growing.
"We're not in hiding. We're in an appropriate downtown location that is respectful to the neighbourhood," he said. "We run controlled hours, very strict hours, and we're acting in respect to the neighbourhood."
The club, which deVries said sold marijuana for medical use, is modelled after southern compassion clubs.
Clients must sign up before purchasing marijuana from the club and there is a 10 gram limit per day.
DeVries said he hoped making the club an official society under the Nunavut Societies Act would help change public perception about marijuana.
"I think the validation by our government will allow a lot of people who have been holding back to give them a little more confidence to come forward," he said. "It's given the people of Iqaluit that have come to the compassion club a different perspective on herbal cures."
In December, deVries said the society had made contact with an RCMP liaison to discuss the society's activities, but had yet to receive a response.
McVarnock said the RCMP's role is to enforce the law.
"Basically the RCMP, we have no position on a compassion club. We look at drugs and drug trafficking in the context of the legislation we have to work with," he said.
The society was hoping to get an exemption under section 56 of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, which allows possession of a controlled substance if "the exemption is necessary for a medical or scientific purpose or is otherwise in the public interest," according to the act.
"We'll be presenting a petition plea to our ministers at all levels and our health representatives to grant the society that exemption," deVries said in December.
But even with an exemption, compassion clubs are illegal in Canada, according to Health Canada.
"The only organization that can legally supply marijuana seeds and dried marijuana is the Government of Canada, who currently obtains its supply from Prairie Plant Systems. This supply can only be accessed by individuals who have applied for authorization to possess marijuana for medical purposes and have received this authorization from Health Canada," according to a statement e-mailed to Nunavut News/North from Health Canada media relations officer Philippe Laroche.
The Marijuana Medical Access Regulations only apply to individuals for personal use.
"Once approved under the MMAR, individuals have three options for obtaining a supply: they can apply under the MMAR to access Health Canada's supply of dried marijuana; they can apply for a personal use production licence, or they can designate someone to cultivate on their behalf with a designated-person production licence," stated the e-mail from Laroche.
"I guess it's time to change the law, that's my stance on it," deVries said.
In an interview with Nunavut News/North before the bust, Qikiqtaaluk Compassionate Society media representative Eric Idlaut said the idea of a compassion club was becoming popular in Nunavut's other communities.
"We're receiving a lot of inquiries from smaller communities on how to become members with our society," Idlaut said. "The first inquiry is how to become members of our society and how they can come up with a compassionate society in their own communities."
Elders who use marijuana as medicine would benefit from having a place they can obtain it without having to pay street prices, Idlaut said.
"Looking at prices being paid for medicine in smaller communities, it's crazy especially when elders are paying almost $100 ( a gram )," he said. "When you reduce it to $7 ( a gram ) that's a huge difference."
DeVries said the club will focus on assisting Iqalummiut with applying to Health Canada under the medical access regulations for marijuana for personal use.
He added that people in Iqaluit will still purchase marijuana, whether it is purchased from a compassion club or off the street.
"You don't take away people's medicine just because the doctor died," he said.

(60-85% of Canada supports decriminalization of marijuana, because its humane.)

CANADIAN INTERNET TO BE CENSORED

PM Harper hates freedom of speech enough that he supports web censorship. The new
Bills C-46,C-47 (LINK) include many limitations to freedom and free speech.The government wants to collect all our sites visited, searches and all other web data in the name of security. Personally I think he wants to hold on to government so badly he wants
dictatorial powers to crush dissent,and personal opinions from being expressed freely also "crush" alternative news sources.(already has the Bell-Rogers-CTV-CityTV and 200+ newspapers (all ONE company) in his "pocket".) Internet Service Providers (I.S.Ps) in Canada, U.S., Australia, Italy, Israel, and other countries, are incrementally censoring our World Wide Web (www.) To control /
limit what you read, hear, and have access to. Claiming that a "free net" is not safe.
Governments worldwide will be, are censoring ISP s to remove / limit websites.
Licences and thumb scan ID confirmation are part of this censorship plan to control/ limit net access and availability.The "trickle down" will effect everyone using the www. web. We will all be controlled in an attempt to stop the free flow and access to
information. Even if laws are not approved of locally they are/ will be passed in some of the other locals, stopping YOUR freedom. China's net censorship is part of their model/ plan. We will ALL be effected.


We must lobby our government body and I.S.P. providers to get this fact out now.
This is the only way to mitigate this drastic plan being implemented now. Many administration staffers have endorsed this plan. The "New World Order" (N.W.O.) type plan is happening worldwide. The broad banner titles that all censorship will be lumped under are:Political, Hate speech, Conspiracy, Pornography, and even commenting on blogs or websites and others.Even if you do not fall into one of these groups,and just enjoy privacy this draconian plan WILL effect everyone incrementally.

YOUR ACTION PLAN; DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT NOW.
Just spend 2-10 minutes now to help stop this.

WHAT / HOW CAN YOU ? email,fax, call, forward, write, Tweet, Facebook,post,broadcast,
Put up a sign. How you feel about this problem.

Who can you tell? Your: Email Contacts,Friends,family, MP,Senate member, co-workers, union, business,school, church, TV station, club, team, store,coffee shop,restaurant, and any other person you think might be effected.

WHEN: DO IT NOW, Please, for all our sake.Draw their attention to this serious problem /social issue.

THANK YOU for your support, Together we can effect positive changes. Tim

PM Harper s Ties To The Neo Cons and The Religious Right.


PM Harper has "hired" Rogers Media group (100's of outlets)which in turn is part of the Bell media empire (100's of companies) to do his bidding and spin his neo con agenda.Rogers Media Inc is a subsidiary of Rogers Communications Inc., which owns Canada's largest publishing company, Rogers Publishing Limited, which has more than 70 consumer and business publications. Rogers Media Inc. also owns 54 radio stations, and several television properties including terrestrial television stations and cable television channels.The group has 54 radio stations across Canada, (45 FM and 9 AM radio stations, thus making Rogers Media the third-largest radio broadcaster behind Astral Media and Newcap) AND both the Citytv and OMNI Television networks consisting of 10 T.V. stations.(Where is the independent view??)
Rogers Publishing Limited publishes more than 70 consumer magazines and trade and professional publications, digital properties and directories in Canada, including Maclean's, Canada's weekly news magazine; its French-language equivalent, L'actualité; Chatelaine; Flare; and a variety of other magazines and their companion web sites. (THEY WANT A MONOPOLY of your mind and thought and view point.....)
It's akin to Fox News crappy biased reporting in the Bush /Cheney/ Rove/ Rupert Murdoch days.They want to control,and spin every story, "fair and balanced" my ass. Almost everything you hear on the radio, read in the newspaper and watch on TV is bull from these guys.We should cancel our Rogers cable,paper and ROGERS phone plan today and get some real news with views instead. Also try using a local credit union instead of a bank, it'll hurt these "fat cats" in their wallets. The only place they care about.Peter Mackay just married CTVs top programing excecutive too * I noticed a change in "quality" many months back.He was seen years ago "palling around" with non other than Condellezza Rice(US Secretary of State).

Canada MUST SHOP CANADIAN.but... We need to stop monopolies from owning everything.
(Monopolies care only about profit and growth NOT people.)
Small actions do make a difference. Let your MP know we need a cap on
campaign contributions and a cap on lobbyist groups,election reform, and stop/slow monopolies. Make sure you get out and vote in all the up coming elections too. Lets finally vote these PC jackass's out.(Before they ruin Canada) Harper wants to "take over" the senate and supreme court next with more "theo con conservatives"

Monsanto Foods have G.E. pesticides In Corn and could be Poisoning What You Eat




Monsanto Foods Canada Inc. and their many subsidiaries are being served on your table, and you may not even know it. They have bought hundreds of seed companies up to control the very food you eat. GMO are in the foods and have been patented. Genetically modified (GM) foods are foods derived from genetically modified organisms. Genetically modified organisms have had specific changes introduced into their DNA by genetic engineering, using a process of either Cisgenesis or Trans genesis.GM foods were first put on the market in the early 1990s. Typically, genetically modified foods are transgenic plant products: soybean, corn, canola, and cotton seed oil. But animal products have also been developed. In 2006 a pig was controversially engineered to produce omega-3 fatty acids through the expression of a roundworm gene produced. Researchers have also developed a genetically-modified breed of pigs that are able to absorb plant phosphorus.
Agracetus, owned by Monsanto, exclusively produces Roundup Ready soybean seed for the commercial market. In 2005, it finalized purchase of Seminis Inc, making it the world's largest conventional seed company. Ummm yummy stuff ehh.

Nutri Sweet and aspartame are examples of Monsanto owned G.E. sweeteners. I think everyone should avoid these products as well. Pop is sweetened with fructose made from G.E. corn syrups. I think our government should pass legislation to, at the very least identify these G.E. products ingredients. Don't You?? The corn that's
newly available from Monsanto has six pesticides in the corn as it grows and then we may eat this stuff. Not to mention animal feeds, dog, cat, pig, and cow feed most likely contain these pesticides that we then are exposed to or possibly even consume.Rogers Sugar/Lantic Sugar(in B.C) has/use G.E. (genetically engineered) sugar beets in the sugar now,BAN IT from your table too.(use organic cane sugar, maple syrup,organic sugar instead.)
With NO clear labeling it's very difficult to prevent. Eat organic locally grown healthy foods,when ever possible. Support local business and keep jobs local. Don't eat food grown in third world countries,the U.S., they don't have control of what pesticides are used, or may not even know they are growing G.M. seeds. Drink organic milk too.Cows can have Monsanto made R.G.B.H. and I.G.F.1 which are proven to cause cancer /puss in milk.

Here are a few sites you can copy/ paste into your browser to do further research:
