Big News in Today’s Budget- The TIDES have turned!

Map of Organizations Attached to Soros (Including the TIDES Foundation)

I’ve been writing about the TIDES Foundation for a few weeks now. It has been a hard subject to approach because I support a lot of the causes that they do. That said, I’ve felt equally uncomfortable with the lack of honesty & transparency in their activities. Quite the dilemma…

Is Someone Planning an Attack on Me?

Interesting. Today I believed I outed Jason Morden as the person who holds the account @VancouverBlues on Twitter, but I have since confirmed it is Michael Madlove (who has a real story behind him!). Apologies for that Jason- but I sill hold you responsible for supporting Harsha’s racist and hateful comments against Derrick O’Keefe

I think I raised some vengeance feelings inside Michael’s (small) mind when I questioned the validity of Harsha Walia holding a rally against racism….

A Discussion on the Influence of George Soros & The TIDES Foundation

Picture I took of the entrance of Hollyhock during my stay there in January

I got into a heated debate with an ally of Dave Vasey and Taylor Chelsea today on the “Occupy Is An Inside Job” page on Facebook. It began with the usual slander and hate- I’ll leave that part out right now as it has been resolved, and I’m sure you don’t need to see any more of that right now…

But, I will share the discussion we had on how Canadian movements are funded by George Soros and the TIDES Foundation. It really says more than I could by simply writing an article. Enjoy! Continue reading

My Response to Accusations Made on Occupy Toronto Facebook Pages

Dave Vasey (wearing top-hat): Is he working for the 1%?

When Dave Vasey confronted me at the beginning of the last Occupy Toronro Action Committee meeting we had an agreement that I would post my letter to the people of OT to each committee through the mailing lists. Then, when it came time to send out my mail I noticed I was banned- despite the fact I have not used those lists to cause any interruption.

It confounded me that someone like Dave, who has worked his whole life pursuing social and ecological justice would have made the accusations he did. It confounds me more that some (there are many more good & honest than there are bad) people decided to shut me out from telling my side of the story. Something is rotten in Denmark…

Who would have guessed a video about Pivot would make me feel this way?

I was busy doing some research on a project, as a single guy typically would do on Family Day, when I ran across a video that brought back some beautiful memories. At the beginning of the video John Richardson is seen sitting on a log on the beach- I used to sit at the same place and drink my coffee many mornings. Paradise!

Funny thing is, who would have thought that would happen when reading about Pivot Legal Society? Well, stranger things have happened- like in BC where the Civil Liberties watchdog is run by a politician!

I sometimes think that, perhaps, I could find myself living on Cortes. That said, it is such a small place, and lots of gossiping and rumours can fly around. Quite the opposite of the big city…
