QUEEN’S PARK (April 3) – Progressive Conservative Party Leader John Tory today pointed to further evidence of attempts by Dalton McGuinty’s office to cover-up the lottery scandal before it became public.

“When people buy lottery tickets, they are buying a dream,” said Tory. “They expect that the system is going to be fair and trustworthy. They expect that you will take those interests to heart and deal with problems when you find out about them. But instead of fixing this up, you tried to cover it up.”

Tory started off Question Period today by noting with sadness the passing of Bob Edmonds, who battled Ontario Lottery and Gaming for a prize that was taken away from him by an unscrupulous retailer.

He then revealed that according to PC sources, Wilson Lee, now chief of staff to Minister David Caplan, attended a meeting on August 30, 2006 where he said the premier’s office thought there was nothing to the lottery scandal and it should be treated as a communications problem.

That meeting was held well before the scandal became public.

“Dalton McGuinty thinks this is a communications issue when people’s money is being stolen,” Tory said. “Instead of fixing the problem, he sent in his political spin doctors to try and downplay the story.”

Tory also failed to get answers as to any steps the McGuinty government is taking to recover the $12.5 million which, according to the ombudsman, found its way into improper hands.

Tory added: “Quite simply, the more fingerprints we dust for on the Lottogate scene, the more often we find people from Dalton McGuinty’s inner circle and the minister’s inner circle. We don’t need to call in CSI to figure out what’s going on – the facts are speaking for themselves. There is a cover-up here.”

Question: Why has the OPP not charged anyone with Terrorist active in Caledonia? i.e. Destruction of Power Station, Barricade of railway line and highway for weeks etc.

Why is it not a terrorist threat to announce a nation wide blockage of CN rail for June 29th?

So, OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino says it’s not his fault that towns are suffering from Landclaim Terror, it’s all the fault of the federal government. Ottawa has clearly said that the Caledonia land claim is invalid, so what more does Fantino want from them?

I do not want to live in a police state where politicians control the police, but neither do I wish to live in a lawless state where the police act as agents of criminals, wilfully violating and ignoring the law while spitting in the face of the Supreme Court. There must be limits placed on police independence in order to prevent the abuses we have witnessed in Ipperwash, Caledonia and, now, Deseronto. Quite simply, the OPP is out of control. Its Commissioner is out of control. The Ontario Provincial Police must be disbanded or reformed as soon as is humanly possible….

Canadians fundamentally believe in Equality for All as enshrined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. We, as a Nation and as a People, welcome those from around the world to join us as Citizens in an Equal and Just Society. We stand united against racial discrimination, against religious discrimination, etc.

We hold to a fundamental view that All People have the right:

1. to ‘right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.’

2. to be ‘equal before and under the law and have the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.’

3. ‘not to be arbitrarily detained or imprisoned.’

The failure of the OPP, as directed by all levels of Government, to uphold the laws of Canada in Ipperwash and now in Caledonia has become a proven fact. The direct policy of the OPP to do policing based on race is contrary to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and against the fundamental views of Canadians.

the OPP continues to violate Supreme Court rulings and Court orders showing their direct contempt for Canadian ‘Rule of Law’. Instead of upholding the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and obeying Canadian Courts the OPP has taken upon itself to publicly slander and attack Canadian Citizens who peacefully speak out against OPP “Two Tier Justice”. 

Purposed Motion:

The average Canadian does not have the financial resources to ensure their Charter Rights are not violated. The Charter of Rights and Freedoms is not just for the wealthy but for All Canadians….

TORONTO — The inquiry into the police shooting death of aboriginal protester Dudley George will release its final report May 31. Commissioner Sidney Linden, who since last August has reviewed the testimony of 139 witnesses heard over 25 months at the Ipperwash inquiry, made the announcement yesterday.

THEN

Read the REAL story of Ipperwash here

Planning to drive or take the train to Toronto this summer? Maybe you should fly: Indian protest groups haven’t yet figured out how to block the sky. As for trains, at least, Ontario seems to have little interest in keeping the public right-of-way public.

Could someone explain, please, why Indian protesters are allowed to use disruptive tactics forbidden to anyone else? Imagine if some other ad hoc group had chosen to strand 3,600 passengers: police would surely have cleared the track in short order. But in Ontario,ever since a policeman shot a native protester at Ipperwash in 1995, the police have taken a hands-off approach to any native protest even if, like this one, it consists of a few hotheads without approval from their band council or tribal elders.

The result is to make the situation worse, not better. Who can doubt that more than a year of police inaction at an occupation in Caledonia, Ont., figured in the calculation of these protesters, who now say they’re planning further, bigger actions? Who can deny that some natives elsewhere in Canada are talking of similar tactics precisely because they see that they can operate with impunity?

Well, all I have to say to OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino is this:
If you had done your job, Caledonia wouldn’t be occupied by terrorists for more than a year now, so to demand someone else solve the problem only makes you look even more incompetent. They’re breaking the law. They’re committing illegal acts of all sorts, and the OPP does nothing about them. So who are you to speak? Just remove them. Oh, sorry- I forgot you take orders from Premier McGuinty. Yep- the OPP only acts on politically-motivated orders!

Radical natives are included on the same list as the Tamil Tigers and Hezbollah in a new counterinsurgency manual being prepared for the Canadian army.  “The rise of radical Native American organizations, such as the Mohawk Warrior Society, can be viewed as insurgencies with specific and limited aims,” the manual states. 

While the draft is stirring controversy for Native activists and supporter, some believe the document, and the tactics outlined in it, is necessary. “The people who do these things should be treated like anyone else, and that may mean surveillance and military operations where necessary,” said David Harris of the Canadian Coalition for Democracies.

Only one man to blame

Posted: April 30, 2007 in Headlines

There in only one person to blame for what’s still going on in Caledonia, and it’s the same person who’s responsible for what went on in Deseronto Friday. Dalton MGuinty.

Yesterday was a day that all Ontarians should be have been able to look to their leader to finally take a stand, to finally take some action and show the people of this province that there isn’t one set of laws for natives and another set of laws for the rest of us. But instead of showing some leadership for the first time in his pathetic, dishonest and miserably unsuccessful rein he wimps out again.

When asked what he planned on doing about the domestic terrorism taking place across the train tracks in eastern Ontario, he offered nothing but suggest the federal government “intervene as quickly as possible to resolve the issue behind the blockade.”

Editors Note: The following is satire and is not meant to reflect the views of myself, or www.caledoniawakeupcall.com 

What a great idea. Block all the nations railways, but wait not just for the Native attention, but why not combine that protest with two tier judicial system, and more important, high gas prices. This is perfect, I mean it. I am not being sarcastic here. I think this is excellent.It’s a perfect day. The Natives are planning to bring the economy down to the ground, along with the total destruction of the Canadian economy, so lets all get involved and go all the way. Everyone has gripes. Everyone has complaints about the governments, everyone has complaints about the high oil prices and the high taxes being paid by Canadians. I mean it, this is perfect…
