An Open Letter To Thomas Mulcair

Thomas Mulcair- let’s hope he’s a lover and not a street fighter…

Dear Mr. Mulcair,

You have a big problem on your hands, as does the rest of the country. True, every political party has its loonies- but, the NDP’s crazies are a danger to our country…

How Do You Double DTES Rental Profits? Rent Your Space To INSITE/ONSITE!

INSITE/ONSITE Clinic In Vancouver

I’ll start this article with a disclosure. First, I am 110% behind the concept of supervised injections sights. Having lived in London & Amsterdam where they have been successfully doing this for years, I can see the benefits of the concept. That said, after a personal experience, I am far from impressed with INSITE- and services in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side (DTES) are a comparatively a gong show…

Anarchy In Quebec! (Time to talk to the NDP…)

This is what useful idiots look like!

A group of thugs invaded the Universite du Quebec a Montreal today. Spray painting the walls, invading classrooms and calling the students scabs for daring to go to classes- and, a couple of women were assaulted. What happened was like the early stages of a new Kristallnacht– how can we accept this kind of hooliganism in Canada?

Open Letter To Irwin Oostinde About Homophobia, Charitable Status & Mental Health Stigmatization!

Is this man a hypocrite?

I got some rather unsavoury hate-mail from Irwin Oostinde’s W2 Media Centre today- and I think it says a lot about his organization. Yes, it did address some of the questions I asked in my article about W2. That said, it raised a whole lot more of them. Have a look at what they had to say- my letter to Irwin comes after the screenshot…

Does Irwin Oostinde Run S&M Sex Parties At The W2 Media Centre? (Kid’s Camps Too!)

Irwin Oostinde, helping the poor, or helping himself?

One of the more interesting things about the W2 Media Centre is the imbalance between events focussed on media, and the number of parties and social events.  Have a look at this screenshot from the events calendar on their website: Continue reading

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

Macdonald Stainsby & Harsha Walia Called “Lowlights” Of The 2010 Olympics!

Mac Stainsby- NDP Hitman & Pie Thrower…

Charlie Smith of the Georgia Straight wrote an interesting article after the Olympics outlining the highlights & lowlights of the 2010 games. And, of course, one of the Lowlights was given to Macdonald Stainsby’s & Harsha Walia’s shameful Black Bloc Incident…

Ryerson Professor Winnie Ng Suports Notable Con-Artist Kevin Annett!

Winnie Ng

We have a new actor to discuss in the International Socialist’s cast-of-characters. Today I introduce to you Winnie Ng, a professor at Ryerson University who currently holds the chair for the CAW-Sam Gindin Chair in Social Justice and Democracy. Winnie’s seat was previously held by, darling of the Black Bloc Judy Rebick!

The deeper I research into these people, the more it seems to me they are involved in a sinister conspiracy to take advantage of Canada’s indigenous communities…

What Did Harsha Wallia Do? (WDHWD)

This is my favourite question to ask Harsha’s defenders. Still haven’t got a valid answer on that. I’m sure she has accomplished something in her career as an activist- but it boggles the mind how people supporting her, when put on the spot, can’t come up with anything! Not even Macdonald Stainsby could do it!

No Wonder Harsha Walia Loves To Pimp Violence!

Yeah Dave Eby- she does seem outrageous, doesn’t she!

Ever since the first day I used Twitter I’ve been amazed by its power. Not only because of its value for getting my words out to the world- but, equally, it is a wonderful tool for querying the world for information…

Is No One Is Illegal Organizing A Treasonous Uprising?

Members of the Canadian Auto Workers preparing for NoII’s May Day march…

I’ve been aware of No One Is Illegal (NoII) for a few years now, and I thought it was a strange concept when I first heard of them. After all, how could Canada keep-up it’s social & healthcare safety nets if there was unlimited immigration? Their concept is noble, but it doesn’t appear that they provide any solutions as to how it can be realistically achieved… Continue reading

May 1st, Hour 1: Assaulted By Dave Vasey & Greg Cipryk! (With Special Guest- Judy Rebick!)

“Copsickles” gathered waiting at Bay & Kings St W.

So, here I am covering the events of Occupy Toronto’s May Day celebrations- live and on the spot! I started waiting at Bay & King Street where the ‘Human’ chess game was announced, but it turned-out to be a decoy.

Is York Professor David McNally (Former Head of the International Socialists) a Black Bloc Ringleader?

 
Remember I questioned how curious it was for the CBC to be using a professor from the ultra-radical York University as an expert on Black Bloc during the G20? Well, it seems my Spidey senses were right…

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…

David Suzuki speaking during the first week of Occupy Vancouver..

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…

Naomi Klein Fights For The Needs Of Vancouver’s DTES Drug Dealers & Poverty Pimps!

Naomi Klein speaking beside Harsha Walia at the rally

One of the more interesting events I attended in Vancouver was the Occupy Condos event led by Harsha Walia. I have, for months, been quite confused by this event. It was only recently what it has begun to make sense to me…

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
