B.C.’s Attorney – General office wants $7,500.00 for the transcript of Topham Trial By RadicalPress.com

Well, there you have it. $7,500.00 for the transcript of R v Roy Arthur Topham less the Charge to the Jury which would have included another 62 pages raising the cost up a few hundred dollars more. Had I required the transcript in 3 business days the price would have jumped up another $1,500.00 bringing the total to $9,000.00.

Putin Throws Down the Gauntlet

This isn’t a game, it’s a fight for survival; Russia’s survival as a sovereign country. That’s what the stakes are. That’s not something Putin takes lightly.

Would you be willing to defend your country against a foreign invasion?

That’s all Putin is doing in Syria. He’s just preempting the tidal wave of jihadis that’ll be coming his way once the current fracas is over. He figures it’s better to exterminate these US-backed maniacs in Syria now than face them in Chechnya, St Petersburg and Moscow sometime in the future. Can you blame him? After all, if Washington’s strategy works in Syria, then you can bet they’ll try the same thing in Beirut, Tehran and Moscow.

So what choice does Putin have?

It’s no wonder that the little guys and gals who get caught up in the machinery of Canada’s “Just”us system invariably find themselves in a position where it becomes just too cost prohibitive to challenge decisions that could, were they accessible financially, be amenable to positive change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is clear that the court that found Topham guilty is doing whatever it can to make it impossible for Topham to pursue a Charter Challenge (Canada's equivalent of a Supreme Court test) to challenge the law under which his freedom of speech was attacked. The price set by the Quesnel Court Registry is absurd in the extreme and was clearly decided on in the hope that Topham would simply be unable to afford to take the case any further!

Dear Mr. Topham: Further to your request for an estimate for the preparation of transcripts regarding the above noted matter and based solely upon information we’ve received from the Quesnel Court Registry, the estimate for the proceedings heard the dates listed below, is as follows: Normal delivery (within 20 business days): $7,500.00. Expedited delivery (within 3 business days): $9,000.00. If you wish to proceed with this order, we will require payment in advance. [Arthur Topham notes: "Thanks to a recent donation of $5,000.00 by Dr. James Sears of Ontario we’re around the $6,000.00 mark with another $1,500.00 left to raise."

Bisesar allegedly stabbed a woman inside a downtown Shoppers Drug Mart on Friday shortly before 3 p.m., police say. The woman sustained life-threatening injuries and remains in grave condition.

Police described the incident as a "completely unprovoked attack," adding that Bisesar was not previously known to them. There is no indication the victim and suspect knew each other, police said.

PROUD TO BE A CANUK

The first military plane carrying Syrian refugees to be resettled in Canada has arrived in the country.

Welcoming the 163 refugees, new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his country was “showing the world how to open our hearts”.

The newly elected Liberal government has pledged to take in 25,000 refugees by the end of February.

Canada’s stance on the issue differs sharply to that of the US, which has been reluctant to take in migrants.

Canada's maple syrup 'rebels'

Redheaded grandmother Angele Grenier doesn't look much like a criminal, but she is one of Canada's most wanted women.

And as such, she faces the likelihood of lengthy jail time, and fines of about 500,000 Canadian dollars ($368,000; £245,000).

Her crime? She's a self-confessed smuggler and illegal dealer, someone who sells contraband across province lines.

But what exactly is she selling that has so incensed the Canadian authorities, and seen the police search her property? Drugs? Guns?

Nope, maple syrup - the lovely, sweet stuff that you pour on your breakfast pancakes, or add to your biscuit recipes.

Defence argues RCMP entrapped hapless BC Legislature bomb plotters - could conviction be stayed?

While police forces in France and Belgium battle fierce ISIL attackers, the RCMP is facing a potential entrapment ruling that could free two jailed but hapless B.C. "terrorists" convicted in the 2013 Canada Day bomb plot.

And even worse, presiding justice Catherine Bruce ruled in a disclosure decision last week where the defence is requesting RCMP solicitor-client communications that:

"I have found that the defence has raised a prima facie case that the RCMP violated s. 83.19 of the [Criminal] Code by providing money, services, and accommodation that helped them to commit terrorist activities."

The Canadian model fighting ISIS in Syria tells us that they're easier to defeat than you'd think

Hanna Bohman has been fighting ISIS in Syria on and off for most of 2015, and she hasn't been impressed.

She said that as fighters, the Islamic State militants have "mostly been a disappointment."

"Their numbers don't seem that big and they're eager to run away," she told INSIDER in an email. "I suspect most of the experienced fighters have been consolidated in Mosul and Raqqa, and that's where the big fights will be."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ISIS is a bunch of actors playing at terror to give the US an excuse to make war on Syria's government. It's now documented that the US has been smuggling weapons to ISIS and Al Qaeda to keep them going. The real target is Assad and has been all along. Truth is the first casualty of war.

Meet the man who funds ISIS: the son of Turkey’s President, Bilal Erdogan

The son of Turkey’s president (and thus, the father) is the silent mastermind who has been responsible for converting millions of barrels of Syrian Oil into hundreds of millions of dollars of Islamic State revenue.

Russia’s Sergey Lavrov is not one foreign minister known to mince his words.

Just earlier today, 24 hours after a Russian plane was brought down by the country whose president three years ago said “a short-term border violation can never be a pretext for an attack”, had this to say:

“We have serious doubts this was an unintended incident and believe this is a planned provocation” by Turkey.

But even that was tame compared to what Lavrov said to his Turkish counterparty Mevlut Cavusoglu earlier today during a phone call between the two (Lavrov who was supposed to travel to Turkey has since canceled such plans).

An Invisible US Hand Leading to War? Turkey’s Downing of a Russian Jet was an Act of Madness

It is all terribly dangerous and it is hard to predict where things will lead.

This outrageous shootdown of a Russian plane that was in no way posing a threat to Turkey or Turkish forces, will not end here, because Russia and President Putin cannot allow Turkey and NATO to so blatantly act against Russia and its pilots and go unpunished, particularly as it is Russia that is acting legally in Syria, while the US, Turkey and other nations backing rebel forces there are in all acting blatant violation of international law.

Unless saner heads start prevailing in Washington, this could all quickly spiral into the kind of situation in 1914, where a lot of ill-conceived treaties led to a minor incident in the Balkans turning inexorably into World War I.

From Zundel to Topham: Zionist theatre

The trials of Arthur Topham, Canadian journalist and publisher of Radical Press, for "hate crime" (2007) and "hate propaganda" (2012) under new Criminal Code “Hate Propaganda” legislation, have resulted in exactly the opposite of what the prosecution, B'Nai Brith, wanted. Instead of quietly muzzling the gadfly critic, the result has been the highlighting of past Jewish hate crimes, and the increasing control by Zionist groups of Canadian politics to promote Israel and censor anti-Zionist criticism.

Is Turkey Starting a Proxi-War for NATO?

It is clear, Turkey hosting the recent G20 meeting and subscribing to the east-west ‘coalition’ of fighting the ISIS / DAESH / Al Qaeda terror, was a loosely disguised farce.

Did Turkey just provoke a proxi-war on behalf of NATO against Russia? – Turkey knew very well that the Russian SU-24 fighter jet was inside Syria’s borders and that even as it may have been close to Turkey it was no threat for Turkey. Russia’s mission was clear to all the 19 nations which attended the G20 meeting some 10 days ago in Antalya, Turkey, when the entire group unanimously decided to cooperate in fighting the Islamic State (IS – or Daesh, according to its Arabic acronym).

Turkey Shoots Down More Than Just a Russian Jet

It is only a matter of time before the rhetorical shell game conducted by the terrorist sponsors comes unstuck.

Turkey’s shooting down of a Russian fighter jet this week was likely aimed at a bigger political target – to deal a blow to the proposal of a grand anti-terror coalition between the West and Russia for fighting the Islamic State extremist network in Syria.

Such a coalition might seem reasonable, even desirable, to most people. But it is profoundly unacceptable, tacitly, to Washington because it would further expose the criminal nature of the Western-sponsored regime-change operation in Syria.

Washington and its allies do not want Russia to participate in an effective military coalition that would accelerate the destruction of the mercenary terror army that the Western powers have covertly invested in. In that regard, French President Francois Hollande seems to have momentarily lost the devious plot by proposing such an alliance with Russia.

University's free yoga class is shut down over 'cultural appropriation' fears after complaints from 'social justice warriors'

A free yoga class has been suspended after student leaders at a Canadian university are concerned the practice of it could be seen as 'cultural appropriation'.

Jennifer Scharf, who has been offering the weekly yoga class at the University of Ottawa campus for seven years, said she was notified in September that the program was being ended.

In an email from the Center for Students with Disabilities, staff wrote that while yoga is 'accessible and great for students', there are 'cultural issues of implication involved in the practice', the Ottawa Sun reported.

'I'm not pretending to be some enlightened yogi master, and the point [of the program] isn't to educate people on the finer points of the ancient yogi scripture,' she told the Ottawa Sun.

'The point is to get people to have higher physical awareness for their own physical health and enjoyment.'

Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan says Syrian President Bashar Assad has to go, adding his voice to the calls for the dictator to step aside.

Sajjan, who has been in the defence post for less than three weeks now, made the comments on CTV’s Question Period.

“I’m of the opinion that President Assad, he does need to go, given the complexity of the problem and the horrible atrocities that have been committed to his own people.”

Crown prosecutor Jennifer Johnson was seeking what turned out to be a series of extremely harsh conditions that would have seen Topham charged with an additional criminal offence for allegedly publishing Crown disclosure documents as well as severe restrictions that would have prevented him from operating his website. In addition to those added Orwellian features Crown was also seeking unconstitutional conditions that would have prevented outside media from speculating on the reasons for the jury’s decision to find Topham guilty of Count 1. And finally, new conditions that were ostensibly meant to protect jury members from being subject to criticism or harassment.

13-year-old lured on Facebook, forced into sex trade, Toronto police say

Toronto police say a 13-year-old girl was forced into prostitution after being lured on Facebook by a 17-year-old girl.

Three people have been charged with human trafficking offences, including the 17-year-old suspect.

The victim was held captive for a month, said Insp. Joanna Beaven-Desjardins, in which time the people accused in the case forced her to have sex with clients in Niagara Falls, Toronto and Brampton.

Beaven-Desjardins said the victim and the teenage suspect had mutual Facebook friends. After talking to each other on social media, it's alleged that the 17-year-old lured the victim to a meet up with another one of the accused, 22-year-old Kahmal Howard Paris.

Police said it was during that meeting at Paris's home in Toronto that the victim was told she would be taken to Niagara Falls to perform sexual services on clients.

The Extraordinary Trial of Arthur Topham: Part 2 by Eve Mykytyn

If Mr. Topham intended to incite hate, would he really have changed his mind in the brief period between counts 1 and 2? We will never know what the jury relied upon; in yet another abrogation of free speech, the jury was threatened that if they spoke to anyone about their deliberations, they would be committing a criminal offense.

Topham’s satire, published in 2011, was obviously intended to make Israelis and Zionists reflect on their politics following a decade of extensive Jewish lobby advocacy of more and more immoral interventionist wars (Iraq, Syria, Libya, Iran etc). ‘Israeli Must Perish!’ is a mirror placed in front of the forgotten Kaufman’s ‘Germany Must Perish!’ Presumably, Topham saw some applicability of a critique of Germany in 1941 to Israel and global Zionism today.

Arthur Topham on His 'GUILTY/NOT GUILTY' Verdict

"At this point in time the question remains as to why a guilty verdict was handed down for Count 1 and why a not guilty verdict was handed down for Count 2. Speculation is that Count 1 included evidence which the jury felt wilfully promoted hatred toward people of the Jewish religion or ethnic group. Count 1 also included the book Germany Must Perish! written by the Jewish author Theodore N. Kaufman as well as the parody/satire of Kaufman’s book by Topham titled Israel Must Perish! which Crown, from the onset of the trial, has adamantly claimed was a “book” that Topham wrote rather than merely a satire of Theodore N. Kaufmann’s book."

Trudeau's boldness test: The TPP

But the real measure of how bold Trudeau will be is how he deals with the economy. After all it is the economic ministries -- finance, the treasury board, international trade most prominent among them -- that are most directly responsible for managing capitalism, something every federal government has to do no matter what their ideology is. The Liberals have always been a Bay Street party (FYI Bay St. in Toronto = Canada's Wall St.) and any move away from that tradition seems unlikely. The biggest test Trudeau will face on this front is right on the top of the issues pile: the Trans Pacific Partnership trade agreement.

First off, let's be clear that these "trade" agreements are only nominally about trade -- they are actually, as economist Jeffrey Sachs says "investment protection agreements." And for every Canadian government starting with Brian Mulroney's the almost exclusive economic policy for this country has been a focus on attracting international investment. Finance Minister (and later Prime Minister) Paul Martin made this explicit -- and set out to attract foreign investors by lowering the cost of doing business with labour flexibility programs, slashed corporate taxes and a 40 per cent reduction in federal social spending. Stephen Harper never saw a trade/investment deal he didn't like or wouldn't sign no matter how bad the terms were for Canada.

Arthur Topham vs Theodore Nathan Kaufman

Arthur Topham, the man behind Radical Press, was found guilty yesterday on one count of communicating statements that “wilfully promote hatred against an identifiable group.”

Some Canadians such as Harry Abrams, former B.C. representative for the League of Human Rights for B’nai Brith Canada, were thrilled. “Canada says that you should be able to walk in peace and not be fearful to be victimized, to be vilified, because of who you are or who you were born as,” Abrams told CBC News. But Topham, who has been married to a Jewish woman for over 37 years, doesn’t criticise or vilify Jews for who they are or the family into which they were born. He actually criticises some Jews, like Abrams, who subscribe to some particularly noxious tribally exclusive politics and ideology. Topham must have wrongly assumed that in a Western society, all forms of politics and ideologies, including Jewish ones, must be subject to criticism.

It was deemed at the time of Justice Butler decision that a Charter application challenge to the legislation would be more appropriate following the outcome of the trial. Now that the outcome has resulted in a guilty verdict in Count 1 the way is open to again challenge Section 319(2) under Sec. 2b of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Canadian researcher targeted by hate campaign over Fukushima findings

Jay Cullen never expected the world of hate he encountered when he began to post scientific information about the impact of the Fukushima accident on the Pacific Ocean.

Criticism was anticipated – but then he started getting death threats.

After the Japanese nuclear reactor melted down in 2011, following an earthquake and tsunami, fears arose that radiation would pollute the Pacific and spread to Canada’s West Coast.

12 Doomed Facts About the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald

The wind in the wires made a tattle-tale sound
When the wave broke over the railing
And every man knew, as the captain did too
'Twas the witch of November come stealin'
-Gordon Lightfoot, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" (1976)

On November 10, 1975, two ships made their way in tandem across the stormy waters of Lake Superior. One was the Arthur M. Anderson, led by Captain Jesse Cooper. The other, captained by Ernest McSorley, was the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald.

The ship was last seen on radar around 7:15 p.m. All 29 men on board were lost with it, and today, 40 years after the most famous shipwreck in Great Lakes history, the cause is still a mystery.

Here's what we do know about the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald, and what happened to it that fateful day:

East end given iodine pills as nuclear disaster precaution

If you live in Durham Region or Scarborough, you may have just been mailed a package of pills in a calming sky blue box. Those pills are meant to protect you in the event of a nuclear disaster — a disaster that you, living within a sensitive 10km zone surrounding the Pickering and Darlington Nuclear Generating Stations, would be on the frontlines of.

“A serious nuclear accident is extremely unlikely,” says Ontario Power Generation (OPG) spokesperson Neal Kelly.

“(But) we worked with Toronto Health and Durham Health and we came up with a plan.”

RCMP accused of rewriting history of Parliament Hill attack

A bitter fight has flared up between the RCMP and Parliament Hill security guards over a ceremony meant to honour those who showed bravery during last year's deadly attack on the parliamentary precinct.

Roch Lapensee, the president of the association that represents House of Commons security guards, has written an angry letter to RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson expressing shock at what he sees as an inaccurate account of the events of Oct. 22, 2014.

Fidel Castro holding the New prime minister of Canada Justin Trudeau … (BTW, this was taken about 43 years before the USA even recognised the Cuban regime)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The irony of all this "Commie Cuba" propaganda is that following the Cuban revolution, Castro actually approached the United States about economic ties. Castro actually hoped Cuba would be more like America, but he wanted fair trade practices, and the whole point of the US-backed puppet Batista was plundering Cuba's wealth, and US companies were not about to start being ethical and fair with Cuba, as it set a bad precedent for other US interests in central and South America! In the end, it was the US blockade that forced Cuba to align with the USSR and embrace communism.

The Golden Rule by Arthur Topham

Tomorrow morning, Tuesday, November 10th, 2015 Justice Butler will charge the jury beginning at 10:00 a.m. and then they will go out to determine my fate. It’s been a long two weeks plus a day attending Supreme Court daily. It’s also been a long eight and half years of continual legal battles with those who would rather silence their critics with unjust legislation than openly discuss the issues that concern so many people around the world.

The support throughout these years has grown to amazing proportions as more and more individuals are coming to the realization that the world is neither a safe or a healthy or a just place in which to live and raise a family and simply get along and enjoy their lives.

Catherine McKenna, Environment Minister, Says Climate Science Is Indisputable

Canada's environment minister says the new Liberal government agrees the science is indisputable — that global warming is real and that urgent action is needed to tackle the problem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back on March 20,2000 the UK Independent, quoting the top global warming scientists, ran the banner headline, "Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past!" Soooooooo ... what's that white fluffy stuff all over Canada if the science is beyond dispute?
