The Word You are Seeking is Equality

The age of Empire ended with the decline of the Roman Empire between 400 to 700 C.E. (Common Era)

The vast trade routes of Rome extended to China, India, Africa and Europe. An Empire expands into unknown territories and the Roman Empire did so over more than a 1500 years.

There was but one Rome: no other city,  either of ancient or modern times, has ever rivaled this astonishing metropolis in the grandeur of magnitude; and not many—if we except the cities of Greece, none at all—in the grandeur of architectural display.

Among empires: the Persians,  the Spanish, French and British cannot but be admired as prodigious growths out of so small a stem. There was but one Rome: no other city, as we are satisfied by the collation of many facts, either of ancient or modern times, has ever rivaled Rome. The earth had its prerogative city and that city was Rome.

Power is measured by resistance. Upon such a scale, if it were applied with skill, the relations of greatness in Rome to the greatest of all that has gone before her, and has yet come after her, would first be adequately revealed. Since that era no land, no part and parcel of the Roman empire, has ever risen into strength and opulence, except where unusual artificial industry has availed to counteract the tendencies of nature.” Thomas de Quincey

How is Your World?

Do you wonder how long it will take for the populist media to mention unemployment or under-employment? Did you receive an increase in pay from your employer during the past two years? Have you noticed how the food industry has reduced the size of the package and increased the cost of food?

When the media writes a story about food or price increases they use the term average price. Average is taking all of the prices over a time frame and dividing it. Only the median price or cost lets you see how many dollars are removed from your budget to cover the increase. It is deceit on the part of the media to leave out the details.

The Truth or Not is in the Wording

Some believe we are in an age of information made simple with electronic devices. I would agree we have improved on a rapidly moving technology. How many people look at their mobile device and think of it as a hand-held computer? Here is the result of a search for the most favored apps being used from the Google Play store.

popgames-2

It doesn’t appear as though many people are using a dictionary in that group. We certainly have no desire to ruin their day by teaching them to understand the meaning of words. Let’s look at another group from Google Play rated as the most used apps.

popsocial-1

This group definitely sees no need to learn how to spell or understand composition. Say what you want to say in a myriad of characters and gain fans, friends and followers. Whatever you do keep it short and use one syllable words since very few people read or know how to read an article. The trick to raising your totals on most of these most used website apps is by posting a nude or semi-nude photo.

When you get into an argument with a know-it-all you can get rid of the person with a quick photo such as the one below. The person in this case retorted with “that’s not Moscow..!!” For over 15 years and counting Russia bolted forward while the populist media kept silent. Moscow became a financial hub bringing with it good paying employment, massive reconstruction, a space program second to no one and a rising middle class.

The sanctions placed on Russia go far beyond the Ukraine or Crimea. They were meant to slow down the billions of dollars flowing into Russia as a sound investment. There was a slight pause by investors for almost three or so months.

The Facts Please

Let’s be reasonable with the knowledge the cold war ended when the Berlin Wall came tumbling down in 1989. Followed closely by the wall in Berlin the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) began to unravel. Each of the former states within the USSR, including Russia, began to feel freedom for the first time since 1917. (some countries were pulled into the Soviet sphere after WW II)

A marvelous writer wrote an article from an American perspective about the cold war. I re-blogged it a few weeks ago. As the communist Soviet Union came undone I was happy there were no longer Russian boggy men waiting to take my life. Now as the years pass I realize it was all a fabrication of lies to instill fear rather than peace in my life. For whatever reason, the US and its’ NATO allies, need an enemy to create a society for the very wealthy. As for the rest of us there are food banks, poverty, drugs and some food stamps.

We are not Equal in the Eyes of the Wealthiest

This article began by saying a few words about the Roman Empire. Seldom seen in the movies or documentaries are the lives of the slaves. We see the brave Senators while hearing the words of the largest land owners. They are in fact the same people. Rome was built on the backs of the slaves in the same way many western nations were built. A woman had no rights being considered unequal in the eyes of the men who wrote the rules. Simply read the biblical words men wrote on how a proper slave may be worthy of salvation. Why do you allow anyone to fill you with fear by placing themselves in the lofty position over you?

The media moguls should know when the cold war ended the so-called leader of the free world vanished too. Isn’t it odd the media repeats the free world lie while articles about our environment disappear? Follow the money trail whenever you read, listen to, or watch their trail of fear, lies and lack of imagination.

Enjoy Life

“The international community should have learned from the past lessons. The historical parallels in this case are undeniable. Unwillingness to join forces against Nazism in the 20th century cost us millions of lives in the bloodiest world war in human history. If they expected a nervous or hysterical reaction from us, if they wanted to see us become a danger to ourselves as much as to the world, they won’t get it. They won’t get any response meant for show or even for immediate political gain. They won’t get it..”  Vladimir Putin Dec. 2, 2016

They didn’t get it nor do they understand.

Letter to my Friends in America

Dear Friends:

It has been some time since I wrote a letter since we have all these new technologies. There is an app for everything under the Sun yet we rarely talk face to face. I prefer the conversations over a good cup of coffee to a line of text any day of the week.

As you know I remain disconnected from the fantasy world of television. I stopped by to see Anita and she had one of those devices playing. In two hours there were twenty-two violent deaths portrayed on two of the shows. Apparently the programs are in their 9th or 10th season due to people being big fans. I’ve often wondered what the relationship to watching so much death has to being happy about war.

Later I headed over to see Nash. You remember him from years ago. He keeps his children busy playing video games or watching television. I couldn’t help myself from making a comment about the 70 inch screen being plastered with blood from the video games. Nash shrugged and talked about how is doing much better after the third divorce. He and his new spouse are expecting a baby soon. They currently have five children between nine to eighteen years old. I thought it would be prying to ask if the children get confused about the parent thing. I’ve never believed the village has any control over the wishes of a family.

The Internet remains a great place to meet people and stop for a chat. After the Bush Jr. debacle it is difficult to  believe an election could be so dramatic. I always thought the person with the most votes gets to be the President. That election proved me wrong.

I pulled a short story from my daily journals started when I was nine. As children we would spend our summers at the cottage. It was a log cabin deep in the wilderness without electricity. About twenty cottages built on the shores of McKenzie Lake made summer a wonderful experience. Great fishing, swimming, chopping wood along with many other chores gave it a lively time. Evenings sitting near a fire on the sandy beach is embedded deep in my consciousness. My friends and I would talk for hours under the starlit night sky. Everyone except big Tim, age fifteen, were between ten and twelve years old. There was a radar base operated by the U.S. military nearby. The young soldiers, 18 or 19 years old, would often visit for a home cooked meal or to let us kids know the events they planned for us.

cottage-1sm
Our summer cottage at McKenzie Lake

One particular night in August one of the soldiers sat with us at the beach fire. They were always welcome to join us and tell stories. He appeared restless and asked us how fast we could get to the base. We told him it would take less than a ten minute run with Tim declaring he could run faster.

As he looked at each of us words slowly fell from his lips. “There are often problems when adults forget how to talk to one another. We have a situation where a few of them are getting angry with each other. Promise me, the next time you hear the air raid siren, you will run to the base and we will do our best to protect you.” We made a promise to him because he was cute too. Nature gave us a hot summer including her wind, rain, thunder and lightning.

When we were back in town I could hear his words as the sirens wailed daily, or more, during September and October. There was no safe place to run so Mom, my younger brother and I huddled under the basement steps. Even today I can hear the air raid sirens in my dreams. Those 13 days during October, 1962 were terrifying.

Despite all the rhetoric spread everywhere today we became friends with the people who played a major role in winning World War II. The cold war ended long ago and I am happy it did. I was re-united with family in Russia and Ukraine after the Berlin Wall came crashing down. For a brief moment I felt a very beautiful sense of peace.

I know you have an important day coming up to elect your next President. This I can promise you as a citizen of the world. I will always be your friend as will the people of Russia. We are counting on you to vote on November 6, 2016 and bring those adults into the room to talk.

I hope before I die those air raid sirens will stop messing with my dreams.

“For, in the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future. And we are all mortal.” President John F. Kennedy June 1963

Anti-Russia Propaganda’s New Buzzword

When western media makes up stories about Russia, it’s no big deal. When Russian media get things wrong, it’s “hybrid war.”

Last week, British state-controlled TV created hysteria with a documentary about a putative Russian invasion of Latvia. As usual, while the Latvians were miffed, nobody west of Kaliningrad had any difficulty with it. They were more concerned with the segment that showed the UK being nuked.

Thus, we again discover that the Western establishment believes it has a monopoly on truth. That only its narrative is worthy and anything that challenges the consensus is disinformation.

If Evelyn Waugh were around today he wouldn’t need to invent William Boot. Too many living, breathing, equivalents have passed through Ukraine and Turkey (the base for Syria coverage) in the past two years.  By the same token, George Orwell’s Winston Smith seems tame compared to agitprop practitioners of today. A certain cabal in the pro-NATO realm has decided that cynicism is somehow unique to Russia. Bewilderingly, their exclusive focus on Russia invalidates much of this enterprise. They are blind to it in their own back yards.

For those of us who follow media, the last week has been truly instructive. An independent French journalist, Paul Moreira, decided to challenge the pro-Maidan group-think in the popular press. As it happens, not one fact in his documentary was noticeably erroneous.

The show was nicely timed as the British government is currently trying to force a £100 billion ($144 billion) upgrade of their Trident nuclear deterrent through parliament. The opposition leader, Jeremy Corbyn, contends that the money might be better spent elsewhere. This is hardly surprising, given that the UK is forecast to run a £69.5 billion budget deficit in the year to April 2016. In addition, over one million Brits currently rely on free food-banks to survive.

Why do You Believe our Government represents Democracy?

As promised in the article before this one here is the rest of the story.

We live in an illusion created by the giant corporate media owners. Most people sincerely believe our system has something to do with democracy. I ask: “Other than the selected days for voting, when do you have any input into decisions enacted by bureaucrats, and elected officials?”

Yes, there might be an open house, where you can have input on a neighborhood concern. A plan for the neighborhood is already drafted by the administration before you arrive. Democracy is more than laws and rules enacted without input from the citizens.

Democracy is the basic right to have input before the final draft or decision is made.

My Opinion differs from the Media Version of Democracy

A short background on how Canadians were feeling during the 1960s and early 1970s. The Liberal government introduced the Canada Pension Plan.  A tremendous feeling of national pride grew with the rising of a distinctive Canadian Flag. Canadians participated as the country looked for its own personality at home and on the world stage.

With the cooperation between the Liberals and New Democrats a Universal Healthcare plan was finalized. Late in the 1960s, Justice Minister Pierre Trudeau, proclaimed “there’s no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation”. This was the uniquely Canadian classical version of democracy.

The final move towards a more democratic country came with the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in 1982 by Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. The debates raged widely as the provincial governments sought more power than democracy. Democracy begins to fail when self-interest and corporations cast the people aside.

The Aim of Terrorist Laws is to Annihilate the Citizen’s Rights

As I said in the previous article I considered it my right to voice my opposition to war. During the months after the 9/11 attack we heard the attackers were Saudi in origin. Who convinced countries, especially NATO members, to attack Afghanistan and then Iraq? Why didn’t we go to the source and bomb the Saudi Royal Family into oblivion?

I wrote in an editorial printed in late January 2003: “I have heard from many of my American friends who are terrified to write anything against the current powers in Washington for fear of their lives. It would be easy to see, for most people, Bin Laden from a wealthy Saudi family is winning the so called terrorist war. After all, he is the professional in the field and it is more and more obvious the voice of reason is being silenced in the United States. Canada is not far behind as new terrorist laws are being put in place…” Many more editorials were written along the same line with one titled Dear Paul aimed directly at Prime Minister Paul Martin Jr.

Hundreds of letters, from various Canadian government departments, began arriving daily day as I wrote against war. An audit of my businesses took place in mid 2004 by Revenue Canada. At a cost of over $100,000.00 the auditors found I owed the government $88.00 over the previous 7 years. The head auditor said: “I have no idea what we are doing auditing your companies. We received an urgent memo from Ottawa to get it done immediately.”

When the statement for $88.00 arrived it included a $15,000.00 fine. The letters were now arriving at a rate of 9-12 a day and so were the phone calls. Imagine owning three businesses and having a phone for each plus a cell phone for yourself. Every phone was being bombarded with calls from multiple government departments night and day.

The meetings with Deputy Prime Minister Anne McLellan (and Minister of Justice) turned into shouting matches. She was also the Justice Minister who helped draft up the anti-terrorist legislation. As far as I was concerned she had lost control of her senses.

In August 2004 under a lot of stress I went for a bicycle ride in the River Valley. As I moved down into the valley I rounded one of the corners. Someone had put a pile of gravel in the middle of the path. I had been riding the path thousands of times over the years. This time I must have flown over 4 meters (approx 15′) before hitting the pavement flat on my back thankfully wearing a good bicycle helmet. Six ribs were broken, one third of one lung kept me alive, shoulder and collar bones shattered into pieces, bones flew out of my body when I hit the pavement and blood was everywhere.

Six days in ICU with a few weeks in the hospital left me feeling out of this world. My businesses were in trouble and so was I. The day I was taken home, there on my desk sat a small cardboard box, full of letters from the government. (one of them claimed I had not reported income from a schooner in Nova Scotia) The new business, supposed to open a few months earlier, was also in financial trouble. On the table was a bill from the City of Edmonton amounting to $300.00 for using an ambulance. Goodbye Universal Healthcare thanks to the corporations.

The all volunteer magazine was kept in print with funds from business supporters and my businesses. No stopping PM Paul Martin from easing up the pressure. On New Years Eve I locked the doors and walked away from two of the businesses. The last print issue of the all volunteer magazine was released in July 2005. We had started an online version in 1994. It remained online with many contributing articles and editorials until 2007.

cvr22003

Every time I was hired the job lasted 4-5 weeks. No reason was ever given to me. The letters kept arriving from the federal government. The fine rose to $28,000.00 for not paying the $88.00 on time. My condo was almost paid for with a balance of $42,000.00 and had an appraised value of $225,000.00. Alberta Treasury Bank (ATB), where I had accounts for business plus my mortgage, told me they did not see any reason to assist me as my funds dried up. The same bank was handed $102,000.00 by the Federal Government kangaroo Court.

CSIS said “…the order came from the PM..”

The lawyers told me the only way out was to sell the condo at the appraised value. My mind was in the mood to end my own life. You had to be there to watch friends abandon the ship. The community I helped grow, and spread it’s wings, were long gone.

The Judge was bewildered. “I have an order from the federal government…” They along with Alberta Treasury Bank  a government owned financial organization took all of the proceeds and tossed me on the street. Two doctors and one psychiatrist wrote up reports diagnosing me with PTSD. It made no difference to the tainted, and prejudiced judicial system in Canada, doing the bidding of the Queen of England. Canada’s Oath of Allegiance is as follows:

“I, .., do swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, Queen of Canada, Her Heirs and Successors. So help me God.” Every elected and non-elected Canadian government official, including the judicial system, must swear allegiance to a person in a foreign country. Had I have been there when Benjamin Franklin asked Quebec along with Upper and Lower Canada to join the Union, he would have had a promoter, to rid us of the parasitic monarchy in England.

What Rights do You Have Today?

It is my hope you will realize you do not live in a democracy. When Bill C-51 became a big election issue it was the Liberal Party of Canada who supported it under the leadership of PM Justin Trudeau. Now you know why they did so. It allows a government official the right to do whatever they deem necessary, without a warrant, without a charge, without a trial to anyone who disagrees with their policies on any topic. Your elected officials, and not elected bureaucrats, have become your judge and jury. The people are silenced using the same methods used by Stalin in the former Soviet Union.

You know what a government can do to the people protesting at the G-20 meeting in Toronto and the Occupy Movement in the United States. Now you have an example of what a Prime Minister can do to an individual without charge, warrant or trial.

The Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the US Declaration of Independence or the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights are meaningless words without an honest judicial system.  Your rights can and are violated and censored every hour of the day. After World War II  the UN Declaration was put in place to grant every citizen freedoms and to prevent wars. Every nation who becomes a member of the UN must sign the Declaration. There are too many examples to list of many nations violating the International Laws agreed too. Why does it happen? The International Criminal Court is ignored due to lack of support from citizens from every country world-wide.

“Cease then to call yourselves religious, lest you declare to the world your hypocrisy. Cease too to call other nations savage, when you are tenfold more the children of cruelty than they. I bow to no man for I am considered a prince among my own people. But I will gladly shake your hand.” First Nations Chief Joseph Brant to King George III

Liberal Party – Rotten to The Core

You are going to hear a story of a covert action taken against a Canadian citizen by the Liberal Party of Canada under PM Paul Martin.

He gave orders to do whatever is necessary to destroy or rid Canada of a lone journalist who wrote against the attack on Iraq. The proof needed to avoid the invasion was in the hands of a UN inspector Scott Ritter. He was ignored by the media with two exceptions. Democracy NOW! broadcast several interviews with him and this writer did not believe the crack head in Washington. Did anyone find the WMDs in Iraq? When did the mushroom clouds appear, other than in a delusional mind of an appointed, not elected President of the US? Every so-called journalist in Canada buried their heads in the sand and apparently no one told them to come out.

Orders were given directly from PM Paul Martin to shut down a dissenting voice. His cruelty will send shivers down your spine. He wanted disparately to involve Canada in the illegal US invasion and destruction of the Iraqi people. One voice, read by millions, would stop his dream of glory and fame. That same voice would bring the Liberal Party to its knees, with a reported scandal, dropped into the hands of brain dead mainstream media.

His attack on me began in early 2002 and continued for four years. Then Deputy Prime Minister, the “Honourable” Anne McLellan his messenger, would threaten me twice. “Stop writing against the illegal invasion of Iraq or suffer the consequences” were her words to me. The same woman I worked tirelessly to have elected in Edmonton Center. She would never have won the election without the full support of the gay and lesbian community. I was the managing editor of its only monthly magazine.

You may ask why I did not publish the story during the election last year. It was my desire to see the Liberal Party elected to office and let the people of Canada know what to expect. Frivolous entertainment and nothing more for you the Canadian citizen. A dog gets better treatment than you. For those who believe there is a difference with PM Justin Trudeau in office you are ignis fatuus.

The Liberal Party of Canada is rotten to the core. A political group of thieves and liars are now in charge of Canada. Their capacity for deceit, treachery, disloyalty, dishonor and deception is all that remains of a political party lost in its own slime.

Every word I say has the backing of the people who offered help during the final weeks. I was being forced to hand my nearly paid for condo to ATB Financial . In words, face to face with CSIS, “…the order came from the PM and a virus was attached to your name on the government of Canada’s computers. Every time you responded to an inquiry up to 9 letters a day were sent to you from various departments. You really p***d him off…”

PM Justin Trudeau is window dressing for the cash donors to the Liberal Party of Canada. Worms are feasting on the remnants. They had the 1957 Nobel Peace Prize winner, PM Lester B. Pearson, as its helm.

I followed the orders of a wise attorney and the words of CSIS. Very ill, penniless and homeless I vanished onto the streets for six years.

Our Charter of Rights and Freedoms clearly states:

freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication.

To be presumed innocent until proven guilty according to law in a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal.

Everyone has the right not to be subjected to any cruel and unusual treatment or punishment.

My rights were replaced with cruel and unusual punishment by the Liberal Party of Canada under orders from the “Right Honourable” PM Paul Martin.

Here is a short background to read while you wait for the rest of the story.

 

 

 

The Bureaucratic Shuffle

“the plan is overly bureaucratic and complex”

We are fooled into believing our elected officials operate the government. You should know it is far from the truth. Every form of government, everywhere, runs the show from behind the scenes. Do you pay taxes to multiple government run agencies?

You have heard or read the “government will spend 20 million dollars to launch a new program“. (example)

Do ever hear how much of the money will be spent on the bureaucracy to set up and make the program available?

To show you who operates the government I will use one example. You can do the same for your town, city, county, province or country. An additional massive bureaucracy is scattered across the country on behalf of the federal government.

How Many Dollars are Spent on The Bureaucracy?

Your example is the City of Edmonton

Enjoy!

Cost for corporate administration, general,  municipal and other total of $356,800.000.00 of the 2.6 billion dollars in revenue. Employee benefits run an additional $127,000,000.00 per year for a grand total of $483,800,000.00. And you thought the 18 million in traffic tickets was a lot of money.

The List is an Endless Empire of Bureaucrats

Agencies, Boards, Committees and Commissions

Policies and Procedures Governing Boards

Community Services

Corporate Services

Financial Services and Utilities

City Manager

Sustainable Development

Transportation Services

Just when you think enough is enough

Capital Region Board

Then the bureaucracy begins to rattle chains at the Provincial Government.

To those among you who believe the 4.7 million Canadians in poverty do not pay may I give you an example. Most in poverty pay rent and have housing costs. Mature Canadians (seniors) get nailed every way possible to pay by the nameless, faceless bureaucracy. We also contributed via taxation and pension plans our entire life.

Capital Region Housing Corporation of Edmonton offers a small subsidy although there is a waiting list of up to 7 years. Seems there are always 8000 people ahead of you.  (before you apply get rid of your vehicle, television, computer, cell phone and shoot yourself in the foot) This elite group apparently reports to no one. All talk no action by highly paid bureaucrats. Pay to join your local political party and drop your name in the hat so you too can be appointed. Only paid up memberships get these high rolling, sit on your ass, do nothing jobs.

Electricity cost Per Month for a 450 sq. ft. run down single suite apartment. Front and back doors do not lock properly etc. The place is more suitable for mice. Electricity used $27.72, with taxes on electricity $34.19 for a total of $61.91. The $1.60 increase per month was a slap in the face to those of us who dedicated our life and liberty to Canada.

Yes,  those of us in poverty, do pay taxes. If you believe it isn’t so, you have likely been listening to the wealthy, talk about poverty. I have been to their meetings and sat in on their committees. If clues were shoes they would run barefoot through the park. Their single minded purpose it to stay wealthy while ensuring the bureaucracy pays them an over-inflated pension.

“You will understand bureaucracies when you understand procedure is everything and people are nothing.” Thomas Sowell

World wants More Porous Cities Why don’t we build them?

People of all classes, races and religions come and go in intense and complex Nehru Place. But while Delhi’s electronics market is every urbanologist dream, it is not the sort of space most cities are building.

I am uncomfortable about debates over separation and inclusion which move almost seamlessly to citing violent, extreme behavior as evidence for or against. Which is why Nehru Place is a better example to think about this issue than Molenbeek. Everyday people are going about their business with others unlike themselves, people they don’t know or perhaps don’t like. There is what might be called the democracy of crime here, as Hindus and Muslims both sell illegal electronics; a wave of violence would clear off customers for both. Getting along in this way isn’t particular to India, or to open-air markets. Numerous studies show that in offices or factories that adults of different religions and races work perfectly well together, and the reason is not far to seek.

Work is not about affirming your identity; it’s about getting things done. The complexity of city life tends, in fact, to breed many identities for its citizens as workers, but also as spectators at sports events, as parents concerned about schooling or patients suffering from NHS (Healthcare) cuts. Urban identities are porous in the sense that we are going in and out of lots of different experiences, in different places, with people we don’t know, in the course of a day. When pundits opine on the difficulty of difference, they flatten identity into a single image, just one experience. The modern economy can flatten identity when it sells people on the idea that gated, homogeneous communities are safe, (not true in fact), builds shopping centres only for shopping, or constructs office campuses and towers whose workers are sealed off from the city.

Canadian Election Ignoring Hot Issues

Very Real Nuclear Dilemma

There are several lists with a total of 89 different topics scolding PM Stephen Harper.  I am certain the list has grown since last week. As the Prime Minister of Canada he could admit that he made some serious errors during the last four years. I would never suggest Canadians hold their breath waiting for him to say anything honest.

A major story, not on any of the lists, nor mentioned by our glorious news readers has to do with nuclear waste. Thousands of Canadians have tried everything possible to bring the issue to any political parties who will listen. Listen is a key word rarely found in the political realm. It is easier to toss billions of dollars at people than pay attention to what the people have to say. Links to Justin Trudeau of the Liberal Party and Thomas Mulcair of the New Democrats who did not respond to earlier articles. The Green Party did talk about this issue in March, 2015 contact Elizabeth May.

How does it make you feel when you are told a nuclear waste dump is being placed near your town or city? The entire project was kept out of sight until someone attended a meeting and discovered the deal was almost done. 29,000 metric tonnes of nuclear waste will be dumped into a pit 1.6 kilometers, (1 mile), from the Great Lakes.

The diagrams presented are absolutely fabulous.

Nuclear-22

It appears the artist forgot to place Lake Huron anywhere on the drawing of the nuclear waste dump. All you need to do is place or pour the nuclear contaminated material in one of the shafts and presto the waste is safe. Safe as long as no one opens it within 500,000 years. Safe as long as the earth never shifts. Some of the spokespersons must know something the rest of the world has yet to figure out. One of them stated, earthquake tremors in that area never happen even though the Ontario Government says otherwise. Maybe the O.P.G. Minister of Propaganda sees far beyond the next half million to one million years.

The chosen location in this diagram has blue dot. A blue line points to it on the Ontario, Canada side of Lake Huron. Red areas are current nuclear reactors many with waste semi-stored.

Featured image

Now that you see the area how do you feel? It is a densely populated area of North America numbering near 60,000,000 people. The Great Lakes are the largest body of fresh water in the world. They supply drinking water to the people, along with many rivers, flowing to and from the Great Lakes. On your behalf I am increasing the list from 89 errors to 90 without mentioning it to the clowns who own and operate big media. We know the lists are being created by people with their own private agendas.

Burying 29,000 metric tonnes of nuclear waste anywhere near the Great Lakes is a very public issue. I do not live near the lakes yet I have a very good understanding of what will happen. Contrary to the so-called media, people are aware, of several nuclear accidents. Where are the plans to evacuate 40-60 million people when the hot nuclear rods shake loose?

Do any of our political leadership candidates in Canada have a secret plan?

The fact is every country using nuclear fuel and/or has nuclear weapons did little or no planning for the toxic waste. Waste comes from nuclear Power Plants, nuclear weapons, nuclear powered submarines and ships, hospitals, research facilities and a wide array of other military weapons.

Our planet is awash with deadly and poisonous nuclear waste. Do you seriously want this material next to your drinking water, city or town?

Take a good look at the number of countries who have deadly nuclear waste piling up.

Featured image

While every political party in Canada, is huffing and puffing about the climate, poison is being dumped into the oceans or stock piled.
