Harsha Walia’s Gonna Get It! (Bob Ages Too!)

Ben Pearson (in one of the best Occupy Vancouver pictures ever!)

UPDATE: This article includes some inaccuracies, please refer to the comments section for updated information

I’ve written about this issue a few times now, and posted the (very popular) video of Occupy Vancouver Gone Wild! It all started after Ben Pearson began to ask questions about OV finances. Ben’s a brave man, and I commend his tenacity in keeping-up the good fight here….

Occupy Toronto And The DTES FauxHawk’s Sacred Fire! (Featuring Harsha Walia & David Eby!)

Can You Recognize This Man? (don’t worry, he’ll be unmasked in a moment)

One of my more memorable moments at Occupy Vancouver was the day when two indigenous men from Vancouver’s Downtown East Side (DTES) lit a ‘sacred’ fire in the middle of our camp. I didn’t know it at the time, but both these men had a long history working with Harsha Walia & No One Is Illegal. I wrote one of my earliest stories on this incident- labelling it a sacred provocation

Occupy Vancouver Has An Asshole Problem! (so do the Council of Canadians & Van Media Co-Op)

Bob Ages of the Council of Canadians (also known as Mr Taco!)

NOTE: The title of this article is based on an article that was quite popular during the early days of Occupy Vancouver: Occupy’s Asshole Problem

I’ve written about this issue before. Bob Ages of the Council of Canadians has been involved in vicious character attacks after Ben Pearson, a member of Occupy Vancouver, started asking questions about the Finance Committee. Then I published a video showing how a gang of people (including Irwin Oostinde of the W2 Media Center) mobbed Ben to refuse his entry to a GA.

This situation has truly one of Occupy Vancouver’s lowest moments…

If There Is Violence On May 1st- Blame These People…

This list reads like a who’s who of the International Socialists! Is this why they would be foolish enough to add their support to a dodgy event being sponsored by No One Is Illegal? After all, NoII is one of the most pro Black Bloc organizations in the country- isn’t it? Continue reading

(UPDATED!) Robocall Scandal: Did OpenMedia.ca Break The Law?

UPDATE: You will see in the comments below that Dana Larsen has alerted me to a potential inaccuracy in this article regarding nonprofit vs charitable organizations. I have confirmed that LeadNow & the Council of Canadians are nonprofits and therefore not restricted by these laws. But, OpenMedia most certainly are…

I wrote back in March about a section in the federal budget titled “Enhancing Transparency & Accountability for Charities”. This provides $8 million earmarked for the CSA to better audit the political activities of charities and improve the transparency of their foreign sources…

I’ll Take Lennon Over Trotsky Any Day…

I’m writing this article to clear-up thoughts some people had that I’ve been on a McCarthyist bend these past couple of days. I’ve no problem with Socialism- in fact, I’m proud to live in a (somewhat) socialist country. There are even a number of industries I’d like to see nationalized! (Bell, Telus & Rogers watch out!) I do, however, have serious issues with Trotskyism– as should all occupiers…

The International Socialists Want Violence In The Occupy Movement!

I’ve always felt some trepidation towards Fox News North– but, from time-to-time, they really hit the nail on the head. It was truly a difficult decision to publish this piece on my blog because it features ‘the devil incarnate’ for progressives, Andrew Breitbart

Continuing My Investigation of Occupy, Black Bloc & the International Socialists…

The Header From The International Socialist's MarxismConference.ca Website

The investigation into the relationship with the Occupy movement and the International Socialists (IS) continues- and, the deeper I look the more obvious are the connections. But, before I continue, I believe it is important to make something clear…

MP Dean Del Mastro Calls The Council Of Canadians A “Extremist Group”

Finally, I’ve been waiting for this for a long time! Other people are beginning to realize that the Council of Canadians are a big problem…

Whadayaknow! Kevin Annett Is A Member Of The International Socialists!

Carolyn Egan of the United Steelworker's Union (and notable Marxist!)

‘I’ll be digging into this a bit more in the next couple of days- but, thought I’d share some exciting news! It seems that Kevin Annett has always been deep in with the International Socialist crowd- people I’ll be writing about in the near future…

Letter to Judy Rebick: Are You Leading The Canadian Black Bloc?

Dear Judy,

Back in January, at the height of some of the attacks against me coming from supporters of Black Bloc, I decided I would make an effort to contact high-profile people who’ve spoken out against Black Bloc tactics in the past. So, I got onto Google and began my search for someone who could help me…

Some Background Behind The Guy Who Made The Nazi Slurs…

I ran into an interesting video from an appearance Curtis Nixon made on Russia Today. In case you missed it, He’s the Guy who made the Nazi death slurs to a Jewish woman yesterday

A Challenge For People Who Support Black Bloc Tactics

Italiano: illustrazione disegnata di un black bloc
I’ve been researching & writing about Black Bloc tactics for six months now- ever since someone released the video of Harsha Walia viciously attacking Derrick O’Keefe after the ‘Heart Attack’ incident at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. I was disgusted by Harsha’s take in this video- her use of racism, sexism & classism seemed like a wholly inappropriate tactic for someone who claims they fight for Social Justice…

Are Alex Hundert & Harsha Walia Cops?

ProtestBarrick.Net: An Example of How Soros Could Profit From Activism

Today I’m going take a momentary break from discussing the Robocall rallies and will shift into a different discussion about George Soros & the TIDES foundation–  a look into how Soros could make large profits from the activities of environmental activists!

Cashflow for Soros/TIDES Foundation Money Laundering

Are The Robocall Rallies Calling To Destroy Canadian Democracy?

A sign from this weekend's Robocall rally- are they calling for too much too soon?

When I first heard about the Robocall Scandal I was immediately compelled to join the movement to call for an inquiry. If the allegations are true, we have a very serious problem in our country- and, justice must be served. However, as I’ve shared with you before, I was quickly disillusioned my the direction of the Robocall Rallies.

Why The Occupy Movement Should Be Concerned About George Soros…

It never ceases to amaze me how often I hear people inside of the Occupy movement defending George Soros- truly, it blows my mind. This happened to me twice this week- first, on Wednesday, when @OccupyBayStreet told me “it won’t make you popular to be criticise people for being funded by Soros”, and another time today when Mathew Kagis (seal clubber) wrote that I was ‘paranoid’ for discussing Soros.  Say What?

Considering all of the (unexpected) kick-back over my writing about Soros, I’ve decided to clarify my position by explaining why I believe the Occupy Movement should be concerned about him:

The Foibles of Ken Collier- Chair of The Council of Canadians in Red Deer

Ken Collier of The Council of Canadians

People, I’m worried about something. The more I hear about the upcoming May Day actions and General Strike, the more I get the feeling that something bad is going to happen. And, when I mean something bad- I mean violence. I started getting this feeling about a week ago, after I heard stories from people at Occupy Toronto who were at the planning group last weekend.
