Harper government's extensive spying on anti-oilsands groups revealed in FOIs

The National Energy Board, supposedly an independent federal agency, has directly coordinated efforts between CSIS, the RCMP and private oil companies against environmentalist groups and indigenous-rights activists.

The federal government has been vigorously spying on anti-oil sands activists and organizations in BC and across Canada since last December, documents obtained under the Access to Information Act show.

Not only is the federal government subsidizing the energy industry in underwriting their costs, but deploying public-safety resources as a de facto "insurance policy" to ensure that federal strategies on proposed pipeline projects are achieved, these documents indicate.

Before the National Energy Board's Joint Review Panel hearings on the proposed Enbridge oil pipeline, the NEB coordinated the gathering of intelligence on opponents to the oil sands. The groups of interest are independent advocacy organizations that oppose the Harper government's policies and work for environmental protections and democratic rights, including Idle No More, ForestEthics, Sierra Club, EcoSociety, LeadNow, Dogwood Initiative, Council of Canadians and the People's Summit.

Mandated as an ‘independent federal agency’, the NEB directed the police protection of their board members and officials from Enbridge and TransCanada Corporation, 140 pages of emails from December 2012 through April 2013 show.

In the emails, Richard "Rick" Garber, the NEB's "Group Leader of Security", marshals security and intelligence operations between government agencies and private interests, and says in a January 31, 2013 email that the NEB "Security Team has consulted today with Canadian Security and Intelligence Service (CSIS) at national and regional levels; RCMP at national, regional and local levels."

"The Security Team, together with our police and intelligence partners, will continue to monitor all sources of information and intelligence," he says.
The documents show the NEB working with CSIS and the RCMP to make "security plans" for the Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna and Prince Rupert hearings and actively coordinating with officials from Enbridge and TransCanada Corporation and a private security contractor hired by the NEB.

They also show Garber asking Sgt. Steinhammer of the Prince Rupert RCMP to provide a visible uniformed presence during the hearings there to deter "illegal activities."

Sustained opposition to pipelines noted, especially in BC

On April 20, 2013, an email entitled "Security Concerns - National Energy Board" was sent to integrated security officials, and stressed the continued protection of NEB and private interests. The memo was from Tim O'Neil, Senior Criminal Intelligence Research Specialist with the RCMP, and then circulated to the NEB and associated stakeholders by Garber.

"There continues to be sustained opposition to the Canadian petroleum and pipeline industry," O'Neil said. "Opposition is most notable in British Columbia, with protests focused on the: Enbridge Northern Gateway; Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion; the increasing use of hydraulic fracturing, and proposed LNG facilities. Opponents have used a variety of protest actions (directed at the NEB and its members) to draw attention to the oil sands' negative environmental impact, with the ultimate goal of forcing the shutdown of the Canadian petroleum industry."

Government spying on those opposed to Enbridge

Thes 'assholes' as you call them..many of whom are full time employees are the last line of defense between us and a roasted planet..wake up people!

 

More than a symbolic slide into fascism

Maybe the symbol of the fasces needs to be updated in Canada to represent a bundle of drill rods and pipelines wrapped around the blunt and bloody axe of Conservative ideology?

By the way, the spying automatically extends to everyone who communicates with an activist, or is a member of any First Nation or any environmental organization. Trolls who try to derail the discussion are noted as possible recruits for the PMO.

Feel a cold wind yet?

if oil/gas industry is good

if oil/gas industry is good wy are they not liable for there actions. Wy do they need protection by our government.

criminal activities

Only those who are intent on violence or vandalism need be concerned with being watched by security forces.  Then again, this does describe many of the groups opposed to oil and gas production and transportation so I can understand their concerns.

You seem to believe that anything which does not promote bitumen development and sale is anti Canadian. You might recall that in the sixties the RCMP intelligence arm spied on Quebec separatists and in the process violated the privacy of many law abiding citizens. The outrage led to splitting intelligence off to form a civilian agency known as CISIS. T his seems to indicate a misuse of the agency designed to protect Canadians to once again violate our human rights. when this happens, it is not a big step to the role the KGB and the Gestapo played in other totalitarian states. Freedom is defined by the rights citizens have. You think they should be trampled on to help Foriegn companies make profits while risking our environment and even our economy? Perhaps you should spend some time living in a totalitarian state and experience what you seem to support.

Harper Gov. Watching and Listening

Of course our wonderful, responsible Fed.Gov is watching and listening to these Radical Terrorists, backed by foreign monies. It would be a complete dereliction of duty if they did not, clearly. Thank God someone is watching and listening and more Citizens should be.....and don't "you" ever forget it. 

Prince rupert being funded by foreign interests...lmao

What you fail to realize crime minister harper, is that if I was funded by any interested parties, I would flood the world with so much propaganda, Enbridge would add me to their enemies list just like Harper did.

Now knowing the RCMP are watching my every move( im so darn bad to be a non supporter of the gas and oil industries), maybe I will get asked out on a date as I can pay for the meal, you know I have to spread the wealth around.

What should be noted about me, Tsimshian( Salmon People) and yes my whole objective is to get the tar sands  SHUT DOWN!
Now that you now my exact position , please feel free to come and watch me smoke a joint and hug a tree. Bill Mahr  will be in attendance.

thank you for your wonderful unhostile presence I feel watching me.

DRUMMER GIRL

At the first JRP  meetings, the RCMP threatened to arrest my sister because she hit her drum with her drum stick in support of what our MP was saying during his statement against Enbridge.  The lawyers for Enbridge were snakey and ugly people. I hope they read this statement and have difficulty sleeping at night as they are wicked  and deserve no rest.

spying on prince rupert

The gate is closed and the way will never be opened to Enb ridge.. We will continue to say NO and my objective is to continue to have the tarsands shut down!!!!! I want an earth with a beautiful ocean and rainforest to be here for my grandchildren. Do I care if the Prince Rupert detachment is spying on my facebook posts.. Lmao no not in the least.. I will stay strongly opposed to the oil and gas industry shoving pipelines and oil in my backyard.. this is mine and mine to protect.. God gave us this earth for man to live equally and together no borders no rulers no taxes no raping the earth of its minerals and resources to keep us viable for eons.. Sorry to disappoint the prime minister of Canada Harpercrit spy away we already knowed you were doing it and put it out there two years ago.. still laughing the police know us and we are not radical we are people who care for our lands and waters.. giggling at spying on Prince Rupert!!!!! they  were scared of a drum being hit in favor of our MP wow this is soooo amusing . she did not beat it for Enbridge or harper she did it for our own MP.. spy away Harpercrit you are on your way out you are a lieing frauding bully. you should not be In power you frauded the election .. talk about needing spies we need em for harpercrit.. and his cronies.....the one thing I noticed is our MP and MLA walk freely around Rupert with no security what does that tell ya.. oh man the fearmongering the cons like to do is shameful..

Sensationalist journalism

The title of the article says the gov't used "extensive spying", which is not supported by one single fact in the article, and is frankly a bald faced lie. Look at the Rick Garber email, it says they conducted a thorough review of OPEN SOURCE intelligence and social media feeds. So basically they searched out info posted in the public domain, like group websites, face book pages or whatever to see if anyone was dumb enough to post that they were going to do something stupid. That's not spying. If the journalist had evidence of wire taps on phones, bugged offices, spy cams, etc., then it would be spying. Looking up publicly available info isn't spying, if it were, then any time you, I or anyone else would be considered to be spying when visiting some group's web page or news feed. Thus it can only be concluded that the journalist and editorial staff are going for sensationalism as opposed to substance - way to lower your standards and integrity.

My second issue is: what's the problem with the NEB getting security assistance from RCMP and CSIS? The NEB is a federal regulatory body, not some private company - whom else would you expect a federal body to consult with? If Canada Post was worried about a security threat and consulted RCMP/CSIS would the journalist raise the same alarmist and false concerns? It sounds like NEB may have had some security concerns (threats) and reasonable concerns about security at meetings. Most people and groups (99%) aren't a risk. However, it's the small percentage that security people have to worry about and prepare for, which means doing research to identify where a threat might come from. Oil sands, pipelines, etc. are heated issues and frankly some of the people opposed to it are unstable nutters that security agencies need to prepare for.

Finally, what's the issue with the briefing meeting. Security concerns for energy infrastructure are a serious issue. Stakeholders need to be prepared for dealing with these issues, so it's not unreasonable to have a conference on how to identify and deal with such issues. Almost all conferences have sponsors who pay for things like breakfast, etc. to defray costs for the people organizing the conference. The journalist may be shocked and horrified to discover that sponsors are usually companies involved in the industry on which the conference is based. Whom else would you expect to sponsor an energy security meeting, Tampax? Give your head a shake.

Who do you think leaks this information to the protesters ? Quit being so short sighted & stupid . These people have obvious concerns about Embridge & the Chinese plans for YOURS & MY futures .

Private Security

Why doesn't Enbridge and Trans Canada provide their own security and not the public taxpayer? Since when is the National Energy Board in charge of the security service?

Canada's Nixon

this cannot be acceptable practice. Just because these groups diasagree with Herr harper's  sell off of Canadian oil does not give the RCMP or CSIS probable cause to warrant spying on them. Regardless of the fact that it was 'open source' spying; thats akin to a police cruiser following me in public just because I have an anti-harper bumper sticker.

Somebody go tell MLK Jr. and all those anti-Putin Russian journalists that keep mysteriously dying that their persecution at the hands of their own security forces, which was enabled by the unrestricted domestic spy operations of said forces, was "nothing to be concerned about". Leigh said so.

 

Is this really the level of debate in our democracy?

 

Apologists for pseudo fascism always comment anonymously.

Oh that's interesting. Which groups are intent on violence or vandalism? Please, enlighten us with your secret intelligence on the great eco-terrorist conspiracy! These documents from the intelligence establishment don't seem to implicate ANY environmental groups.

You're also incredibly wrong to say that only those with violent intentions have anything to fear from unchecked government surveillance. That's just absurd, really. Say that to the female love interests who were spied on by perverts at the NSA (the same outfit our spooks are collaborating with to spy on foreign heads of governments, on behalf of mining and energy companies). And institutionalized spying on groups just because they have different political views? That's even more reprehensible.

 

You have to realize what you are dealing with

You have to realize what you are dealing with, and that is a pool of people who have spent their careers looking for criminal conspiracies and terrorism. They have a different set of filters on their eyes and in their minds, and they often come from socially and politically conservative backgrounds. They see conspiracies because they want to see them. That is what their work trains them to do. Unfortunately, if they can't find what they are looking for, they will focus their attention and resources at the next closest thing. Trouble is, that nearest thing may not be remotely threatening and may be difficult to separate from what is freedom of expression in a democracy.

 

Many years ago, a co-worker talked about a previous job, where because of a visit by a Chinese delegation, they had a visit from a young RCMP officer for a security briefing. It was a mind-boggling experience for my co-worker. Here was a young man, similar to himself in age, background and education, who saw communist conspiracies everywhere he looked. That was this guy's job, and after the official briefing, he regaled those who would listen with stories of other communist conspiracies. This cop's whole life was dominated by the idea of communist conspiracies threatening Canada.

 

Some of the info that came out about the Olympic games security effort is indicative of this whole suspicious mindset. There were no overt threats to the Games and nothing happened. But the intelligence division of the security effort went to great lengths to gather info about the most vocal and persistent critics of the Olympics, Dr. Chris Shaw, a professor in the Faculty of Medicine at UBC. Dig around on the net for some of the stories. I can't recall that Shaw ever said anything that could be considered a threat, nor did he condone any overt action against the games. I can only assume because of Shaw's prominence in the anti-Olympic 'movement', he was seen as likely to know what others might be planning.

 

My fear is that people will end up in this criminal database for baseless reasons. The problem with such databases is that the policies that govern these institutionalize suspicion. "There must be a reason your name came to our attention, so we won't remove your name from a suspects list for 10 years."

 

That institutional suspicion may damage some completely innocent lives.

 

 

Flabbergasted

I've always been chastised for being a pessimist in this whole environmental battle.  I look at the power of corporations arrayed against a bunch of loosely organized but committed volunteers and sorry, I don't see a great deal of hope.  Of course we must continue to resist but... really!  Not too long ago the BC electorate was almost 70% opposed to Northern Gateway.  Add hundreds of millions of dollars from Enbridge, Cenovus, CAPP and our own government (!) spent on the best marketing and PR guys you can get and produce the best ads possible and voila: we're now pretty well neck and neck according to today's news.  Surprise, surprise.

Add to this the deep connection of the oil industry to the media and to government... and well, like I say, I'm concerned.

But this... this story shocked even me.  The government using public money to spy on the behalf of private corporations and disclosing to them what they discovered about people who disagree with them?  It's preposterous.   Forget that it's about pipelines or oil or slave produced goods or tortured animals or starving people or toxins in our household products or, or, or,...  The fact of the matter is, people trying to make money for themselves will not always be acting on the best interests of the general public.  They're salesmen.  Some of what they give us might even be good but certainly not all of it.  We MUST have a system that allows us a completely unbiased forum to openly discuss the pros and cons of any proposal.  If we do not actively insist on allowing those who disagree with a particular point of view to have exactly the same platform and opportunity to make their point, we are turning our backs on truth itself and the sacrifice of those who died for such principles is defiled.

Millions of corporate marketing dollars communicating through a media that is both owned and beholden to corporations and allowing the government to unilaterally act on behalf of those same privileged corporations is not, by any means, a level playing field...  God help us.

The National Security risk is the lousy EA data!

Enbridge Line 9 hearing revealed HUGE national security risks by way of the extremely limited scope study that negated 98% of the pipe! Crack clusters exist according to Enbridge's own reports that would blow out at 740 psi or less but Enbridge doesn't want to do Hydro-static testing. Instead of the testing, they simply want to move diluted bitumen at 750 -1000psi! These pipes highest pressure to date was 666psi in Cardinal for 5 minutes. They should test it at 1500 psi to be safe! The National security risk isn't the concerned public or NGO's, it's the fact that industry's narrow scoped studies is based on horrible planning that is attempting to negate risks for the sake of approvals.  The RCMP should flip the table and hold the Government and Industries accountable instead if they really act to serve the public interest and National Security. 

Protestors a Vital Part of Democracy

To lump protestors in with terrorists and trouble makers is like saying Martin Luther King was wrong to stand up for equal rights for blacks. Lest we forget that he too was branded a terrorist but today he is a hero and a hero he was and is. At the heart of every true free nation must be the right to protest but protest is sometimes not enough. There must equally be a channel in which those views are heard. Corporations by their very nature have an almost endless supply of money in which to "convince lawmakers" to create the conditions with which they can generate revenue at the least cost to them. The cost is transferred to the taxpayer, the consumer or the environment.

A true free nation has laws that at the heart have the welfare of its citizens in mind, NOT the corporation. The corporation should be forced through regulation to improve the lives of its citizens.....all of its citizens....not just its shareholders. When this is achieved, that is the hallmark of a "just society" where citizens are its most important concern.

Corporatism is a dangerous path to tread and it is time for the power to be transferred back to the citizen where it ought to have been all along.

Rule of Law

Our P.M. Harper would spy on, and possibly arrest and imprison an environmentalist for the smallest of crimes, and yet as the Leader and PM, Mr. Harper is flouting the Rule of Law at every turn - the Robocalls, appointing Senators who are not residents of the Province they represent, and if you read Hansard you would "hear"him dodging and obfuscating on a daily basis - his tactic to keep Elizabeth May from asking questions contradicts the intentions of the rules of the House.

  Hypocrit Harper is walking a razor's edge on the Rule of Law and the intention of the Rule of Law.

   Funding studies of the proposed oil tanker routes, and dredging the harbour where the Gateway Pipeline ends - all before the JRP work is done - tells us that Harper has allready decided the pipeline is going in.

  Cutting science funding and shutting up the remaining scientists is clearly dictatorial. Our PM has little or no credibility to be taking the high road required to be spying on Canadians "in the national interest".

  "Economic concerns in the national interest" should raise suspicions when it involves private interests who stand to make huge profits. The corruption potential is obvious.

 A hypocrit such as this does not have the moral authoriity to be spying on anybody.

  But then again who am I, a radical environmentalist, declared to be a potential terrorist because I value a healthy Ecosytem, to be pointing fingers...

CANADIAN INTELLIGENCE

CANADIAN INTELLIGENCE CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT - PRIVACY COMMISSIONER OF CANADA - JUSTICE DEPARTMENT OF CANADA Michael Heroux said [email protected] I don't know why people are not talking more about why the watchdog of CSIS stepped down. Everyone is saying he stepped down because of a conflict of interest over the pipeline even though he was cleared of any ethics violations. My wife and I have filed numerous privacy complaints with the Privacy Commissioners Office Of Canada to investigate the RCMP CSIS and CSEC but they refuse to help us. They also refuse to help us get our information from The Justice Department Of Canada to look over to see if it correct. We first contacted the Privacy Commissioner Of Canada Jennifer Stoddart on November 26 2013 about our case against the RCMP CSIS and CSEC, then we contacted her again on November 28 2013 about our case and that day she changed her mind against BILL C-13, we submitted our case to her on November 30 2013 and that is the same day she stepped down. She was supposed to retire in 2 days after 10 years of service but she stepped down 2 days early because of our case. We read 5 different news articles on November 30 2013 saying she stepped down and when we went back to read those articles 5 news agencies deleted their story about her stepping down early. The Privacy Commissioner Of Canada sent us a letter and tried to tell us that we contacted her on November 19 2013 just before the bill was given to her but that was false, we never contacted her until November 26 2013 and then we contacted her again November 28 2013, and that day she decided against BILL C-13 because of the abuse and assasination attempts against my family and I. I find it strange the same day I revealed online my full complaint against the RCMP CSIS and CSEC the CSIS watchdog stepped down. Something that we also think is strange is when we contacted the Justice Department Of Canada looking for information they announced 2 days later they are appealing the decision from Judge Mosley and then they wanted to know why we wanted the information and where and what time we were going to use the information before they give it to us. Now they are refusing to give us our information and they said they will not answer any more of our requests. Something else we find funny is we don't have to enable our browser history anymore. We can clear our cache and our browser history and cookies and all and it is being cached somewhere else downstream from our ISP or maybe upstream somewhere. We think it is probably being cached by the spy in the adjacent suite. Thanks for reading. My wife and I are the two people Justice Richard Mosley was refering to when he ruled CSIS was end running the law. We have been following this decision very closely, we are being spied on right here in Canada. My wife and I and our 3 children have been abused by the RCMP CSIS CSEC and other police forces in Ontario and British Columbia for over 5 years now. I have a mental disability and the police started harassing my family and I when I started using Craigslist 5 years ago, what can I say, we're swingers. My wife slept with a few of them while I watched. We are not terrorist. It sounds strange but I have been poisoned and my wife has been poisoned for speaking out publicly about the abuse. We have also been assaulted numerous times in the last 5 years. They are listening to us in our bedroom and living room because they let us know by telling us what we are talking about in the privacy of our home. We contacted the BC Human Rights and Civil Rights office last year because the police were trying to run me and my family over on the streets, but they never got back to us. We got a lawyer a couple years ago and the lawyer was able to get them to lay off for a bit. They sent a gunman to murder us last year, we managed to evade him. It also sounds strange but we have a spy monitoring us right now in the adjacent suite to us and they have been there for 15 months now. Since Judge Mosleys decision they quit harassing us but they are still messing around with our internet and phone communications. Thank God for Judge Mosley, I think he saved our lives. We think the reason they are still watching over us is because of what Judge Mosley refered to as "invasive survailence techniques" used against the people who had those warrants issued on them. They don't want us to tell anyone about the techniques used against us for the last 5 years. Pretty sophisticated alien technology if I do say so myself. Pretty cool actually but we don't plan on telling anyone. We are patriotic Canadians and we hate terrorist like everyone else but we don't want to see people abused. Caught up in the fish net so to speak. They have tried to set us up numerous times for arrest over the last 5 years to get their hands on us and make us look like the bad guy's but we have managed to evade those attempts also. My wife and I are concerned because Canada Post is being scaled back and it has got us worried. We use open source software for our operating system. In the last 5 years our privacy has been majorly violated. We are most concerned about our communications being sanitized. We no longer have control over who we can make contact with through electronic means. We can only contact people in person for representation so most people not within our city are off limits to us. We realize we are being followed and are being listened to in the privacy of our own home and our home has been entered numerous times when we are not home by intelligence but our means of communications are being sanitized. 5 years ago we noticed rootkits being installed on our operating systems and I was able to set up honey pots and found they were being installed by the military. Since, we switched to virtual machines from static medium verified with sha512sums (DEBIAN KNOPPIX) to get a malware free system each boot. The only website we use is Craigslist and we have met RCMP agents through Craigslist who wanted us to work for them to help them entrap people from terrorist to gangsters. We believe they were just looking for patsies though. I used to work for the RCMP over 20 years ago to infiltrate criminals and make arrests but I quit working for them because they wanted me to set people up that weren't even breaking the law. For the last 5 years we have used Gmail and we have had numerous internet suppliers and numerous Gmail accounts and we have noticed people we have been emailing and people emailing us have not been getting the emails even though Gmail says they have been sent. We use an SSL connection so our communications are encrypted. The same thing applies to our text messages, we have used Rogers for internet, text and phone for the last 5 years. We have noticed our posting on certains forums are not showing up or they are being deleted as we are writing them right before our eyes or our browsers are being closed as we are writing stuff. Our computers are being shut down and our cell phones are being shut down as we are trying to correspond with people. We have realized that people have been contacting us through our email and our cell phones claiming to be people we know like family members for instance but we know they are imposters. We have tried contacting Human and Civil Rights advocates through electronic means but have had no replies. We have even tried to contact legal representation through electronic means but have never heard anything back over the years. It sounds strange but a gunman was sent to kill us early last year but we managed to evade him. Shortly after that someone tried hiring a hitman through the SILK ROAD website to kill us. At first when the website was taken down by the FBI the owner said the hit was for a father of 3 from Vancouver but later he admitted it was for the whole family of 5, a husband, wife and 3 children. We have been poisoned numerous times in the last 5 years and I have numerous painful swollen lumps throughout my body. Strangers have come up to us on the streets and have told us I have cancer. I went to the emergency room last year because my brain was swelling in my head and my eyes were bulging and I was having severe headaches and the doctor didn't want to treat me and sent me home. Thanks for reading.

CANADIAN INTELLIGENCE

CANADIAN INTELLIGENCE CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT - PRIVACY COMMISSIONER OF CANADA - JUSTICE DEPARTMENT OF CANADA Michael Heroux said [email protected] The Justice Department Of Canada finally got back to us after ignoring us for over a month. They are now saying they won't give us our information they have on us to look over, and they told us they will not answer anymore of our requests and to get The Privacy Commissioner Of Canada to investigate why they won't give us our information. We have contacted The Privacy Commissioner Of Canada numerous times since November 30 2013, the same day the former Privacy Commissioner Of Canada stepped down. We want them to investigate why the The Justice Department Of Canada won't give us our information, but The Privacy Commissioner Of Canada won't help us get our information. They keep telling us they need concrete proof for them to investigate to get our information. It doesn't make sence to us. Since we were told to move back to British Columbia in 2009 from Windsor Ontario for our own safety, we have been kicked out of numerous apartments because of the agents harassment and we have been kicked out of Victoria B.C. and Kamloops B.C. by the police and they are now trying to kick us out of Vancouver British Columbia. They now have 2 apartments around us. They have one beside us and they have one above us. They use both apartments and they are working in shifts. They monitor us from the the above apartment and when the one agent is above us monitoring us the other agent is sleeping in the apartment beside us. Approximately every 12 hours they switch, the one upstairs will move to the lower apartment and rest and the one that is rested will take his place. It has been that way now for over 5 years. We know the agent above us is doing the monitoring because when we start talking about them they will start stomping on the ceiling until we stop talking about them. They will also stomp on the ceiling when we are posting online about them, they will try to block our postings by messing around with our internet and they will start stomping. That is the only time they stomp on the ceiling. They don't like us talking about them or posting about them. The first assasination attempt against us was in January 2013 when we went to find our one daughter that was working for them to investigate us in 2008. We went back to Windsor Ontario to find her and we were there for a month looking for her but we couldn't find her. Just before we came back to British Columbia they sent a gunman to murder my family and I. It was later that year in 2013 that a stranger approached us and told us our daughters had been murdered. We are not sure what to do now. We are on Government disability and we cannot afford a lawyer to represent us and the Government won't give us our information for a lawsuit against them. They won't let us post on certain forums anymore, not even Craigslist, they keep blocking our posts on there now. In 2008 an agent told us that the Canadian Craigslist servers were controled by the Harper Government. We were told they made a deal with Criag and that Buckmaster guy otherwise they would block them from Canada. Sounds strange to me. They won't let us post on The Globe And Mail website anymore either. Thanks for reading.

CANADIAN INTELLIGENCE

CANADIAN INTELLIGENCE CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT - PRIVACY COMMISSIONER OF CANADA - JUSTICE DEPARTMENT OF CANADA Michael Heroux said [email protected] The Privacy Commissioner Of Canada finally got back to us after ignoring us for quite some time now. When we first contacted her office they wanted more specific information from us to prove to them that the 30-08 warrants Judge Richard Mosley issued were actually for us. We know they have the security clearance to find out and we know they know the warrants were for us but they keep saying prove it. We sent them the names of the first 2 agents they sent to investigate us in 2008 and they didn't even acknowledge the agents in any way. They didn't comment on the agents, they didn't ask questions about the agents or nothing. They are just ignoring anything we tell them even though they keep asking for more information. The first 2 agents they sent to investigate us in 2008 were our daughters. Our 2 daughters came back home to live with us in 2008 and told us they were working for Canadian Intelligence. They told us the agent that they were working for wanted them to set us up. It has got us worried. We don't know whether Canadian Intelligence is playing some sort of sick game with us but a stranger approached us out of the blue last year and told us our daughters have been murdered. We have not heard from our 2 daughters since they were sent back home to investigate us for Canadian Intelligence. All The Privacy Commissioner Of Canada is saying to us is prove it. They want us to name names of the Intelligence agents we met in 2008-2009 but they won't offer us any protection against further assasination attempts against my wife and kids and I even though they know about the previous attempts. We are still being monitored as I write this and we have reason to believe they are using foreign spies from their international coalition. The last thing The Privacy Commissioner Of Canada did was refer us to the recommendations that she made to Parliament on our behalf. The same thing is going on with The Justice Department Of Canada, all they want from us is more information from us to prove the 30-08 warrants were for us but even though they know about our daughters working as agents for Canadian Intelligence and they know about the poisonings and assasination attempts against us and they know the 30-08 warrants were for us all they are saying now is they don't have control over the 30-08 warrant information we are looking for against us and they are saying Canadian Intelligence has the information we are looking for. Both agencies have security clearance and they know everything but they are playing dumb but they still want us to name names about the agents we met between 2008-2009 and neither of them are willing to offer us protection against further assasination attemtps against us. After our daughters left our home when they were done investigating us in 2008 many agents were contacting us in the beginning of 2009 offering us large sums of money if we left Canada for a while. We knew they were trying to get us to leave Canada but not until Judge Richard Mosley decision did we realize why. They were offering us luxury vacations in the sun and basically anything we wanted just to leave Canda for a while. Now we realize it was just a ploy to get their International Coalition involved, we probably would never have been heard from again. They also wanted us to bring our kids along. The good agents were warning us that our life was in danger and they were telling us to move back to British Columbia for our own safety. The local police force would escort us home late at night when we left the downtown area and we always wondered why we were so special. We decided to listen to the good agents and move back to British Columbia for our safety. Just as we were getting ready to move a few agents approached us and offered us $250,000 dollars if we stay in Ontario. We couldn't believe it. But we left anyways. Thanks for reading.
