As the world prepares for the 2018 Winter Olympics to he hosted in South Korea, we need two raging lunatics to sit down and shut up. The 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver was a wonderful time for us. It brought us all together as we hosted the world in a very posative event.
Everyone knows that Kim Jong-un is a raging lunatic. He has no respect internationally because he keeps threatening to launch nuclear missiles when he can't even feed his own people. The Interview with Seth Rogen actually humanized Kim Jong-un and made him likeable. It was actually pretty funny. Donald Trump is another raging lunatic that has no respect internationally.
Recently, South Korea had some political unrest of it's own. Mass protests against political corruption saw the current president resign. I can tell you those protests would not have had such a happy ending in North Korea. If the people protested in like manner in North Korea, the government would have pulled a Tiananmen Square and shot them with live ammunition. Right now South Korea needs to focus on stabilizing their own government and preparing for the 2018 Winter Olympics. North Korea needs to be more concerned with feeding their own people then with blowing up everyone else and Donald Trump needs to keep his big mouth shut. We don't need another Gulf of Tonkin incident creating more hostilities unnecessarily at a time when we should be pulling together and shunning extremism from either lunatic. Peace - J'imagine.
I sent my own son to South Korea not to wage war but to play music because I believe playing music together is far more productive than shooting each other. Like a waving flag yo.

Sky News is reporting that "Thousands of Venezuelans have dressed in white and marched in silence to pay their respects to the 20 people killed in anti-government protests over the past three weeks." CBC is reporting that "The smell of tear gas and smoke from fires filled the air in several Caracas neighbourhoods on Friday after a night that saw at least 12 people die. In the humble district of El Valle, people screamed, while the sound of gunshots sent neighbours and protesters running for safety."
After Hugo Chávez died, things in Venezuela collapsed. There is no food in the supermarkets. Thousands try to leave the country as soon as they open the borders. Most want to stay in a Venezuela that has food. This is an international humanitarian crisis.
Military Trafficking Food as Country Goes Hungry
The Calgary Herald is reporting that "Four women have been rushed to hospital after a shooting in Castleridge early this morning. At about 4:15 a.m., police were called to the 0 to 100 block of Castleridge Way N.E. for reports of gunshots. When emergency crews arrived, they found three women between the ages of 20 and 40 inside the home suffering from facial injuries, said Stuart Brideaux of Calgary EMS."
"A fourth victim, with a wound to her neck, was located later this morning at a different location. Brideaux said the woman in her mid-40s had been at the original scene, but left and was located on 22nd Avenue N.E. at about 4:40 a.m. Three of the victims were taken to hospital in serious but stable condition. One of the victims sustained soft-tissue injuries and is in stable condition."
"This is the second shooting to take place on Castleridge Way this year. In February, a man was shot while leaving a house party in the same block as Saturday morning’s shooting. Shot multiple times with a handgun, he was rushed to hospital in critical, life-threatening injuries. "

Readers have sent in links to two interesting posts on Norm Farrell's blog called In Sights. I have kept a pretty neutral stance on the Site C dam myself because I'm from Vancouver. I support hydro electric power. It is cost effective and environmentally friendly. They are a lot better than nuclear reactors. Yet I do support the freedom of speech and if people have legitimate concerns with the Site C dam then let's hear them.
NS News: Not worth a dam
The first article is about the Site C dam and states: "Most of the British Columbia’s corporate media rides the Liberal bandwagon but the Glacier Media paper in my town, the North Shore News, takes a strong position against Site C, the most expensive white elephant ever conceived by bankrupt politicians."
The blog posts then quotes the North Shore News which said: "The project, which was approved without a proper review by the B.C. Utilities Commission, is going to cost $8.8 billion we don’t have to produce electricity we can’t use, to power LNG plants that won’t exist, at a cost too expensive to sell to foreign markets…"
That is the most logical opposition to the project I have heard thus far. Hydro electric power is normally cost effective. Why does this project cost so much money and what need will it be fulfilling? Will it be powering LNG plants that don't exist or will it be supplying power to foreign markets at below cost rates? Since the project costs so much money we need to ask who is really building it? Is SNC-Lavalin using a shell company to get the contract? Why in God's name would we give SNC-Lavalin the contract for anything? Is that what this is really about? Why would we sell power to foreign markets for less than it cost us to produce it?
Liberal supports health system privatization
The second post on Norm's blog that my readers have sent in is with regards to Liberal incumbent Linda Reimer's position on the privatization of our public health care. I totally support fiscal responsibility. Lower taxes and less spending means business and taxpayers prosper within a free market. Yet public health care is good business. It's not a Communist plot to take over the free world. It is actually a British tradition.
I have a friend whose mother lives in Arizona. He said in Arizona the hospitals have a legal obligation to provide emergency health care to everyone even if they don't have medical insurance. As a result all the hospitals are built in the rich areas and no one wants to build a hospital near a poor area because they don't want to be the ones that get all the poor people showing up needing emergency care when they don't have insurance. That in my opinion is not an example of a civilized society.
The Ottawa Citizen is reporting that "a former small claims court judge who pocketed a quarter of a million dollars from the cemetery funds of his Catholic church will spend the next year under house arrest."
Ronald Houlahan was an Ottawa lawyer who served as a small claims court deputy judge. This is why judges need to be accountable to the public in Canada. I remember speaking with one concerned citizen at a local criminal justice rally. He said to me "at what point does a crooked lawyer become an honest judge? Is there some kind of epiphany that is suposed to take place because I'm not seeing it. "
Local media are somewhat pessimistic about Peter Fassbender's reelection chances after dropping the ball since he was narrowly elected last term. He is one of Christy Clarks insiders and created quite a division within the Liberal party after Christy Clark let him hijack the nomination process and run without being nominated and elected by the party.
James Plett was the Vice President of the Surrey Tynehead riding association of the BC Liberals at the time and resigned as a result of the sweetheart deal claiming on Twitter that he was 'Sick of "Today's @bcliberals" corruption + scandal after scandal. Worse than the BC NDP of yesteryear. I quit effective now #bcpoli'
As mayor of Langley Fassbender was part of the Metro Vancouver Mayors gluten counsel that epitomized the tax and spend model of pork barrel politics. While he was mayor he sat on a committee overseeing the RCMP contract negotiations when his son was a member of the RCMP. As a result he was quickly promoted within Christy Clark's insider trading group.
After he was elected MLA he pissed off all the teachers by bypassing the collective bargaining process and emailing all the teachers directly trying to explain why they were wasting massive amounts of tax dollars on court fees justifying their illegal acts instead of paying a fair contract. He helped Christy Clark burn massive amounts of tax dollars in a legal battle which they lost for knowlingly breaking the law. That act of arrogance defied reason.
After that fiasco he was quickly shuffled over to the minister of Translink position where he perpetuated the Mayor's Glutton councils tax and spend fraud by trying to introduce a tax levy on all businesses that were located near a skytrain station. More taxes on small business. That is their MO. Most recently he started raising eyebrows by handing out tax dollars to constituents from his campaign office.
I live in Peter Fassbender's riding. I didn't vote for him last time and I most certainly am not voting for him this time. We need to elect a government that supports small business not one that chokes them unconscious with more tax and spend gluttony like the BC Liberals have done. Ever heard the term from Shakespeare me thinks thou doth protest too much? It's when someone's raging denial becomes so passionate it becomes suspicious. When the BC Liberals claim the NDP will tax and spend we know they are the real offenders of tax gluttony not the NDP.
As for the rest of Surrey The Vancouver Sun is reporting that On the NDP side, MLAs Harry Bains (Surrey-Newton), Sue Hammell (Surrey-Green Timbers) and Bruce Ralston (Surrey-Whalley) have said they’re running again in what is considered comfortable New Democrat territory for the multi-term incumbents."

The RCMP are reporting that "The Nanaimo RCMP is continuing with their investigation into a shooting which left one person dead. At approximately 3:20 am on Wednesday April 19, 2017 officers responded to a report of shots fired at the Howard Johnson's Hotel, located at 1 Terminal Ave, Nanaimo. When officers arrived they found one person deceased in the lobby of the hotel from apparent gun shots. Approximately one hour later a vehicle was stopped by North Cowichan Duncan RCMP officers and one male was taken into custody without incident."

Iceberg watching season along iceberg alley in Newfoundland has started with a bang. CBC is reporting that "It's an unusual sight on Newfoundland's Southern Shore highway: bumper-to-bumper traffic, packed along the side of the road. And they're all there to get a closer look at a massive iceberg stuck in shallow water, just off the coast of Ferryland, on the Avalon Peninsula. Over the Easter long weekend, resident Don Costello said the area was "swarming with people" taking photos of the iceberg." The picture was taken in Ferryland, NL.
I was going to make a cross Canada trip on my motorcycle this summer but I'm not going to be able to make it this year. Here is an intersting link to a website that tracks icebergs that are floating past Newfoundland in case you want to visit. That's worth seeing so it is.
Yesterday they were filming a Netflix series in Whalley. They converted the KFC that just went belly up into a Taco ta go for the film. They had fire crews on site. It looked like they were going to burn the place down but no such luck. They're all done the filming.
CBC has picked up on the story the Surrey Now-Leader ran about businesses leaving the area due to the drug related problems associated with harm promotion. They quote the owner of Motorcycle world a few doors down the street as saying "Nobody is going to be here pretty soon, it's going to be a dead zone." That is the natural consequence of harm promotion. It's time to wake up and smell the coffee and stop pouring gasoline on the problem and start getting people off the streets and into treatment. To accomplish goal that we need to clean up the rehab houses in Surrey that are just flop houses scamming the government and burning tax dollars.

A few stories to catch up on but I just wanted to pause for some inspiration from the hood. The Landfill Harmonic is a group of kids that live in the slums of Paraguay and made musical instruments from landfill trash. I first saw them on a Lindsey Stirling video.
The website for the movie has a powerful video about the slum that is built on a landfill and states "If you ae born in the wrong place, you don't always have the right to dream." The video is called dreamer and states in darkness you shine. So they do.

I made it up to Hollyburn Lodge this morning while it was still open. This is the last weekend for skiing on the local hills but there's a huge snowpack remaining. Saturday there was a break in the clouds so I rode up to Seymour. As soon as I hit the second narrows bridge you could see dark dark clouds very low covering the peaks. It looked very dark and dreary. It was snowing on the way up and very limited visibility.
Today the sun was out and fresh snow revealed. In the city the cherry blossoms are out.
This is springtime in Vancouver. Cherry blossoms in the city and a melting snowpack on the mountains. It's a wonderful time of the year. Yet even with today being Easter I think many of us out there just aren't feeling it. Today at Hollyburn Lodge a young family walked in and the mother told her young children this is Hollyburn Lodge. This is where my parents took me when I was a child. Those are good traditions to have and uphold.
I gave a small easter basket of chocolate eggs to the young Syrian kids next door and their eyes lit up. I smiled and said it's kind of like our Ramadan except we eat. I suppose people fast during lent but even that tradition is disappearing. Some say the old ways are lost so they are. Some but not all. It's time to make new memories so it is, for the kids. Peace.
Billboard dot com is reporting that Just in time to celebrate its 40th anniversary, Meat Loaf's famed 1977 rock opera Bat Out of Hell is being made into a musical scripted by Jim Steinman, the man who wrote all the songs on the best-selling album. It opens in London England June 20, 2017 and will hit Toronto October 14 to December 3, 2017.

Dude, Postmedia news folds like a cheap tent but reporter Tim Petruk stands like a rock. After the abserd criticism he received from Gordon Clark in the Vancovuer Province Tim put out another article reaffirming his position and pointed out that the colomnist who criticized his coverage of Peter Leask is married to a judge.
Tim's article declares: "Despite what you may have read this week, a B.C. Supreme Court judge was out of line last month when he said he prefers his own Vancouver bed to a Kamloops hotel room at the outset of what was supposed to have been a two-week rape trial. Justice Peter Leask made the comment during a conversation in open court with lawyers about how the case would proceed. He also suggested the prosecutor not call two of her witnesses and rolled his eyes while she attempted to plead her case."
"I was in the courtroom when it happened. It was strange, to say the least - not just the words, but the atmosphere. Leask appeared to be talking down to the prosecutor and the court clerk. When it was time for the court to read the charges to the accused, a 90-year-old man alleged to have sexually assaulted his daughter in Adams Lake decades ago, Leask flicked his wrist down at the clerk and said, simply, “Go.” It felt ugly. The charges against the elderly man were stayed by the Crown on the second day of the trial for reasons unrelated to Leask’s conduct."
"Clark told me he had been 'tipped off' about the transcript by someone suggesting he review it. He expressed concern about “beating up” a reporter who was simply reporting what happened in a courtroom, but maintained I had erred. What he failed to mention was that his wife is employed as a judge, drawing a six-figure salary comparable to that of Leask."
"After a judge makes comments like that, it is impossible to consider any trial-management decision they make without that context. Leask’s tone seemed to be almost one of belittlement to the prosecutor and the court clerk. He was talking down to them - the only two women in the courtroom. Tone, though, does not come across in transcribed pages. Clark thought he could figure it out by reading the transcript. Perrin withdrew his complaint against Leask within hours of Clark’s column being posted. The sister of the alleged victim in the sexual-assault trial told me she will carry on with her complaint against Leask."
"The bottom line remains this: Clark wasn’t there last month when Leask made an inappropriate comment and suggested Bouchard speed things up. I was. I felt the strange atmosphere of the courtroom and heard the belittling tone in Leask’s voice. He was out of line."
God bless Tim Petruk. Rock the World Soulja. That was freaking awesome.
Still riding against the wind. Peace.
Canadian Justice Review Board
It's pretty bad when the political corruption in BC makes the New York Times and the local media barely mention it. That shows something is seriously wrong with the status quo. This post will shatter stereotypes by helping us look beyond the misconceptions so we can see the facts which stand on their own merit. I saw a commercial with Christy Clark recently and everything she said made perfect sense. Then her Cheshire cat smile at the end made me want to throw up. What she says and what they do are two very different things.
Years ago Preston Manning led a Ron Paul revolution in Western Canada crying out for fiscal responsibility. The people supported it overwhelmingly. It was a right wing movement that rebelled against Mulroneyism and pork barrel politics. We don't want to hear about any more special deals and broken promises. We want you to stop wasting our money and reduce taxes so families and business can prosper. Brian Mulroney had lost that vision completely. He had become worse than the left for spending and taxing. He was the one that force fed us the GST all the while warning us that the other guys would tax and spend while he did exactly that.
Last election I met an old friend who was actively involved with the Reform party federally and provincially and I asked him about the Reform Party in BC. He just said we tried that last time. All we did was split the vote and the NDP got in. Now we're stuck with the Liberals. It was a discouraging prognosis indeed. I submit that the BC Liberals have become even worse than Brian Mulroney at the tax and spend, line your own pockets nightmare. Even Lying Brian didn't make the New York Times. It' all about corporate monopolies and sweetheart deals.
The first lie we must address this election is the false claim that the NDP will tax and spend. No one could tax and spend any more than the Christy Clark government. The NDP opposed the excessive gas tax and support a cap on bridge tolls. The BC Liberals in conjunction with the mayor's glutton council want to tax and spend us right over the moon.
The next lie we need to address is that the NDP are bad for business. That is simply not true. Corporate monopolies are very profitable because they eliminate competition and destroy the free market. The NDP support small business while the BC Liberals do not. That's all there is to it.
Next is the balanced budget lie. The BC Liberals have not balanced the budget. They have manipulated the numbers. They created a tsunami of debt in BC Hydro and keep deferring that debt. They even borrowed a dividend from BC Hydro's deferred debt to balance their budget.
In contrast, John Horgan Is pledging to freeze BC Hydro rates. The critics cry how is he going to pay for that? Wait 'till I tell ye. By fixing the BC Hydro Fraud that Gorgon Campbell first created. By nationalizing the private power brokers that sell power to the public company at above market rates. That obscene fraud has gone on long enough.
Where will the NDP get money from to fix Christy Clark's unbalanced budget? From BC Hydro. Right now the government extracts a dividend from ICBC. If we were to privatized ICBC that would reduce tax revenue and increase taxes for consumers. When the NDP were in power they were able to extract a dividend from BC Hydro. After Gordon Campbell privatized the power brokers that sold power to BC Hydro at above market rates, that tax revenue was lost. The NDP can fix that and in so doing help freeze hydro rates and increase tax revenue at the same time.
We could even take this one step further and nationalize our oil. That would increase tax revenue and freeze rates as well. That would be a colossal help to taxpayers and consumers alike. We can keep all the private Canadian companies. We just take the profits from our resources out of the hands of foreign ownership and put it into the pockets of Canadian Taxpayers.
The NDP are not soft on crime, the BC Liberals are. The BC Liberals are deeply involved with it. Just ask the New York Times. I met Penny Priddy at Dianne Watts' first crime prevention coalition meeting. I told her about my past Union involvement and she just raised her hand and said I am here because I am a mother. When it comes to crime I am more right wing than my opponents. So is Bruce Ralston and Mike Farnworth.
Harm Promotion is not working. The Christy Clark government is tied to that pharmaceutical fraud, the NDP is not. The NDP supports treatment, the BC Liberals do not. In the last civic election I supported Kirk LaPointe not Gregor Robertson. Kirk LaPointe wanted to get rid of open drug dealing at Main and Hastings. If we had elected him, then the number of drug related fatalities in Vancouver would not have doubled like it has under Gregor Robertson.
Likewise in Surrey, Harm Promotion is killing small business. I did not support Linda Hepner last election. I supported Doug McCallum. Harm Promotion in Surrey and Vancouver needs to stop. That is the only ethical thing left to do. This election we can make a difference if we have the courage to do so. If Alberta can do it, so can we.

In February the Vancouver sun reported that "A Surrey woman is suing the Abbotsford Police Department, City of Abbotsford and three constables, claiming a police officer drew her gun on her, forced her to the ground, hit her and called her “bitch” and “fat” after stopping the plaintiff for allegedly speeding 18 kilometres over in a 50 km/h zone." That article was actually by Tom Zytaruk from the Surrey Now-Leader.
Now Tom Zytaruk from the Surrey Now-Leader is reporting that the complaint stopped before it started in Vancouver Supreme court because of a WCB decision. The article states the WCB decision by Herb Morton found that because the woman and the cop were both on the clock, the woman does not have a legal right to sue civilly but may apply for WCB benefits. AYFKM? This is why the judicial system is so screwed up. The woman can't sue civilly because the incident happened while she was at work. That is absolute nonsense.
CBC is reporting that Justin Smith was a member of the Fallen Saints motorcycle club when he was arrested in January, 2015 as part of the Project Forseti investigation. He has been sentenced to 18 years in prison with no opportunity to apply for parole for nine years. Hells Angels member Robert Allen was convicted of cocaine trafficking last February following a trial in December.
"Smith emerged as a central figure as the investigation progressed. He pleaded guilty this week to nine counts, including dealing fentanyl, heroin and cocaine; having proceeds of crime in excess of $5,000; possessing and transferring a handgun; and recruiting members to the gang." He had 26 previous convictions prior to this one.
He was dealing fentanyl for the Hells Angels. Imagine that. During the investigation police seized 5.4 kilograms of crystal meth, 2.6 kilograms of cocaine and 3,358 fentanyl pills.
The Surrey Now-Leader is reporting that "Some may see empty storefronts and a plethora of fences in the Whalley area as metaphors for the area’s social woes. Black fencing around the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of St. Mary on 135A Street serves as a barrier to keep the struggles of the street at bay. A former furniture store at the corner of 108th Avenue and King George Boulevard sits empty, as does a more recently vacated building at 105A Avenue that housed a KFC for more than two decades. Soon, another business will close its doors, just steps away from the former fast-food joint." KFC has been there forever.
Eddie MacNaughton and family have run Motorcycle World on King George since 1999, but they’re packing up shop and heading for the Tri-Cities this fall. “Illegal drug use right in front of us is a concern, the amount of needles every day, the human waste every single day, garbage,” said MacNaughton. “Last year I spent over $5,000 in fence repairs only to find out for instance, two weeks ago, we got broken into and we found the stolen propane tank on 135A Street."
Harm Promotion is not working. It is killing small business. Stop it.

The Winking Judge strikes again. The Times Colonist is reporting that "The B.C. Supreme Court has thrown out an investigation into Twitter messages Victoria Police Chief Frank Elsner sent to the wife of one of his subordinates, a move B.C.’s police watchdog says could undermine its oversight powers." No kidding. The judge claimed ordering an external investigation was an abuse of process. Are you kidding? How? The public want the police to be publically accountable just like the courts. The public want external investigations not private ones behind closed doors.
A few doors down from the Vancouver Supreme courthouse is a pub called the Winking Judge. One has to wonder what the implications of that name really are. Why would a judge wink? It implies a corrupt judicial system which seems to be confirmed by J.J. McCullough. That is why the Canadian Judicial Review Board has become necessary.
This is the Frankie goes to Hollywood case where Victoria Police Chief Frank Elsner is alleged to have sent inappropriate Twitter messages to the wife of one of his officers, then is accused of making false statements and deleting data arising from the original investigation." It is another cover up of the profesional missconduct of the Friends of Craig Callen.
Frank Elsner is from Sudbury where he "associated with criminals and partied with drug users, bikers, and hookers. He set up elaborate drug deals, disappeared for weeks on end, was involved in a hitman operation, and had multiple aliases." This is an example of an undercover cop who goes undercover not because he hates crime because he covets that life. I do not. There is nothing in that life that appeals to me and I think married cops that go undercover to infiltrate the bikers gangs because they covet that lifestyle are trash.
Every summer the price of gas at the pumps goes up and it has nothing to do with the price of oil. The corporate monopoly takes advantage of tourists traveling on holidays. They will charge as much as the market will allow simply because they can. There is no competition within a free market because we let them have a monopoly on the market then sold that monopoly to Communist China so Canadian oil companies are not the ones making the profit here.
So once again the price of gas at the pumps in metro Vancouver skyrockets and it has absolutely nothing to do with the price of oil. It is because we killed the free market and let them have a monopoly so there is no competition. Canadian business suffer as a result as do Canadian consumers. We all know the oil companies in Alberta are suffering. This jump in price is not benefiting them. It is benefitting the owners of the monopoly. This is why we need to nationalize the oil in British Columbia. We need to take back those profits from foreign ownership and let Canadians profit from their natural resources. BC has oil towns too. Nationalizing the oil in BC is within reach. That would be good business. The same with BC Hydro.

CBC is reporting that "The Liberal government has tabled legislation to end the prohibition on pot, checking off a major promise from the 2015 campaign. The pot plan comes with two new bills; one to regulate the recreational use, sale and cultivation of marijuana, and a second that strengthens measures to stop impaired driving. It would allow people to possess up to 30 grams of dried or fresh cannabis and sets the minimum at 18 years of age, though provinces and territories can set a higher legal age. Consumers can grow up to four plants at home or buy from a licensed retailer. Dried and fresh pot and cannabis oil will be available first, with edible products to become available later." The New York Times tweeted the report.
As I have repeatedly said, I am not in favor of legalization I am in favor of decriminalization. We have way too many people that smoke way too much pot but throwing people in jail for smoking pot is just plain stupid. Nevertheless, I concede that Justin Trudeau was elected on a campaign promise to legalize pot and I acknowledge that. A few details still need to be worked out.
I don't like the idea of pot being sold at liquor stores or at pharmacies. I have no problem with all the BC Bud shops that have opened up. I support small business not corporate monopolies and I like he idea of keeping the industry separate for those of us who dont want to be involved with it and don't want to have second hand smoke imposed on use. All smoke is bad for you. That is why the leading cause of death in house fires is smoke inhalation.
On the New York Times tweet someone posted two pictures of pre-cancerous growth on vocal cords of marijuana smoker and asks Why legalise something that causes harm? Cigarettes are harmful and they're legal. Let's just make sure that pot smoking is banned from public areas like cigarette smoking because pot smoke is even more cancerous than cigarette smoke.
CBC is also reporting that "Police warn organized crime, including the Hells Angels, has infiltrated the medical marijuana market". Big surprise. Legalizing prostitution in Amsterdam didn't remove the Hells Angels from taking over the industry there.
Letting people have 4 plants at home makes sense. Legalizing pot and forcing consumers to buy it from a corporate monopoly is no different than organized crime. My only question is why only 4 plants? Let's not over regulate. Lets support small business and free enterprise. In fact let's allow them to sell pot at the Amsterdam cafe and Cannabis Culture on Hastings street. Right now they are not allowed to because the Hells Angels that run the Black door and the Bulldog cafe across the street won't let them. I doubt the Hells Angels will ever let them sell pot at the Amsterdam cafe even if the government allows them. That is the root of the problem.

Jason Frances Wallace was in court yesterday to fix a date for the murder trial of his puppet master Bob Green because Jason didn't want to take the fall for Lenny like everyone else has done before him. Sad to see Bob go. Sad he shot Bob and not Lenny. Now Lenny has to live with the consequences of his choices for the first time in his life. The trial will continue in November.

You know it's bad when even Kim Bolan criticizes a BC judge. Gordon Clark from the Vancouver Province was sent in by the Corporate media to do damage control and spin the story.
Gordon Clark put out a shameful piece of damage control attacking the journalist who was present in court falsely claiming that the judge's comments were taken out of context despite the fact that everything the reporter claimed Peter Leask said fell well within the realm of believability given what we know about Peter Leask.
DJ Spin claims that Petruk quoted the judge as saying, “Kamloops is a wonderful place, but I like sleeping in my own bed. The overall impression left by the story, and others that followed by other media organizations, was that an arrogant, out-of-touch judge was rushing a sexual-assault trial — and therefore not caring about the victim of childhood rape — so that he could get home to his bed. The transcript reveals a very different story."
Yet by his own evidence the transcript states: "full disclosure. I live in Vancouver. I come here because it’s my duty. Kamloops is a wonderful place, but I like sleeping in my own bed" exactly what the reporter claimed Peter Leask said. So Gordon Clark's evidence proves the reporter told the truth and now the Corporate owned media wants to fire the reporter for telling the truth. Postmedia News has just killed free speech. Time for free enterprise to create new media outlets owned by private companies not by corporate monopolies.
Judges need to be publicly accountable and right now they are not. The powers that be desperately want to maintain the status quo so they don't become accountable to the public. That is a shameful disgrace. Don't pull a Gary Webb and fire a reporter for telling the truth.
Update: The Vancouver Province killed it
Wow. This is astounding. The Vancouver Province is reporting that "A UBC law professor who filed a formal complaint against B.C. Supreme Court Justice Peter Leask over remarks the judge made at the start of a Kamloops sexual-assault trial has withdrawn his complaint and apologized to Leask. Benjamin Perrin withdrew his complaint to the Canadian Judicial Council on Tuesday after The Province published a column by editorial pages editor Gordon Clark that demonstrated that news reports upon which Perrin based his complaint contained errors and mischaracterized Leask’s comments." AYFKM?!
The media can be a powerful influence for good. A good investigative reporter can expose a bad cop or a dirty politician and force them to resign. This article is actually bragging that the Vancouver Province killed the complaint and killed the story. That is nothing to brag about. They are now culpable in the sexual assault charges that were dropped and any future crimes Peter Leaks commits while he withers away his last few months on the bench before he ages out and faces mandatory retirement at age 75. My comments about Peter Leak stand, even though Postmedia News folded like a cheap tent.
Gordon Clark's editorial was simply untrue. The court transcript proved what the journalist on the field said. That editorial wasn't even written by Gordon Clark. They just put his name on it to give corporate censorship a human face. It was written by the same person who wrote this obscene assault on the freedom of the press. The new article is written by an "unnamed" reporter and has the heading Vancouver Sun underneath the Vancouver Province heading. One would assume it was written by the chief editor of the Vancouver Sun who has taken over as chief editor of both papers since the Postmedia News merger.
Before we examine the real reason the UBC Law professor flipped and pulled his complaint let's review the timetable of how the media flipped. A local reporter in Kamloops sat in on the trial and heard Peter Leask say "full disclosure. I live in Vancouver. I come here because it’s my duty. Kamloops is a wonderful place, but I like sleeping in my own bed." That is exactly what the transcript said. It was not taken out of context. They obviously discussed other options. Peter Leask obviously didn't order them to cut the trial short but it is equally obvious he implied it. That completely fits in with the character of Peter Leaks that we have been forced to endure.
Since Postmedia News owns almost all the newspapers in Western Canada now, when the story broke in Kamloops they ran it in all their other papers including the Vancouver Sun and Province. It created quite a stir. Even Kim Bolan wrote about it and she never criticizes judges. She had to have been told by her editor to write about it because that is something she does not do. When I started criticizing bad judges in the very beginning, that is when she stopped linking to my blog and website. She did not think criticizing the judges was right or legal. I disagreed. I was dealing with several activists on the field that passionately wanted me to write about bad judges.
Now all of a sudden Postmedia News has flipped and they even pulled Kim Bolan's story about it from her blog. Was Kim Bolan's second article false? No it was not. Did the chief editor cave in to pressure from the Law society? Yes he did. Just for the record, this is the cached version of the page from Kim Bolan's blog that was pulled. She took it down. I reposted it. I see nothing in that article that is untrue and it stands as a record of corporate censorship.
Just for the record, this is a copy of the UBC Law Professor's original complaint. He withdrew it, I posted it. I see the complaint as valid. It also stands as a record of corporate censorship. That also stands as evidence for the Kamloops reporter's unlawful dismissal trial. Don't you dare try to pull a Gary Webb or a Dan Rather here in Canada. We will sue your ass if you do.
So if the court transcript proved what the reporter in the field said, what was the real reason the UBC Law Professor withdrew his complaint? Let's see... Do you think the Law Society of BC just might have some say in the selection of what professors teach law at UBC? Do you think it might be feasible they told him to withdraw his complaint or he will lose his job? That is the only explanation I can conceive of. The law society does not want to be publicly accountable and desperately wants to preserve the status quo.
January 2nd 2014 the Vancouver Province nailed it. The next day the Vancouver Sun dropped the ball. Now three years later after the Chief editor of the Vancouver Sun took over for the Vancouver Province, Postmedia News killed it. They killed the complaint and they killed the story. They crucified it. They buried the story instead of running with it. Shame on you. I hope you enjoy your new profit margin Postmedia News. Your money will perish with you.
Perhaps we should ask the Aldergrove judicial review board what they think of Peter Leask. No doubt they will have a billboard that tells a different story than Postmedia News.
Perhaps Surrey Shirts would like to sell some of their shirts online for the public.

Global News is reporting that "Dozens of people, many of them children, died in a nerve-gas attack in a rebel-held city in Syria this week." That we know. What is uncertain is where the chemical weapons actually came from. The Guardian is reporting that "Evidence that the sarin nerve agent was used in the chemical attack that killed more than 80 and injured hundreds of others in Syria’s northern province of Idlib last week has triggered awkward questions for the government over the part played by the UK in the Assad regime’s development of a chemical weapons programme." This comes as no surprise.
September 2013 it was claimed that Assad used chemical weapons in their civl war which Assad denied. Russia stepped in and said how about if Assad hands over all his chemical weapons which he did. Now Infowars is asking how could Assad use chemical weapons that it did not have? We knew from last time England was the one that sold him the chemical weapons in the first place just like America sold Iraq chemical weapons during their war with Iran.
In the September 2013 attack Reuters reported that CIA fabricated evidence to lure US into war with Syria. That is what Ray McGovern, a veteran CIA analyst, told RT. After the September 2013 attack Reuters reported that McGovern was among the signatories to the letter from veteran intelligence professionals to Obama, warning the US president that Assad is not responsible for the chemical attack, and that “CIA Director John Brennan is perpetrating a pre-Iraq-War-type fraud on members of Congress, the media, [and] the public.”
Every crime has a means and a motive. Do I believe Assad would use chemical weapons on his own people? Yes I do. You don't buy chemical weapons without the intent of using them. Do I believe he did use them? I'm not so sure. It is possible but it seems unlikely to me. Why would he risk creating a public uproar when everything seemed to be going his way?
This declassified document from the CIA's own web site outlines the CIA's rationalization for getting rid of Assad. It is sheer propaganda but it shows how determined they are to get rid of him to perpetuate US interests. The document shows some of the things the CIA is willing to do to overthrow Assad. It is a list of ploys similar to Operation Ajax in Iran.
Do I believe the CIA would use chemical weapons in Syria and blame it on Assad? I most certainly do. They did it in 2013, they would not hesitate to do it again.
Now Justin Trudeau is pulling a Nicolas Sarkozy. On New Years Justin Trudeau was burning tax dollars fast and furiously on Aga Khan's private island. His Highness the Aga Khan supports Assad. Now all of a sudden Justin Trudeau says Assad has to go. That's kind of like what Nicolas Sarkozy, le chinen sal, did to Muammar Gaddafi. One minute Sarkozy is trying to convince the world to trust Gaddafi with nuclear weapons so he can sell him a French reactor, then as soon as Gaddafi decides to buy a reactor from Argentina instead of France, all of a sudden he's a bad guy and we should invade and murder him. That was a dirty deed.
The Agency will argue that Gaddafi was bad, he bombed Pan Am flight 103, over Lockerbie, Scotland. First, no he didn't. Second, that was before Sarkozy was accepting campaign contributions from him trying to convince the world we should trust Gaddafi with nuclear weapons. The Lockerbie bombing didn't seem to matter to Sarkozy as long as he was getting campaign contributions from him and was planning on selling him a French reactor. Gaddafi didn't have a motive to bomb Pan Am flight 103. He would have preferred the US whistleblowers that were on board that flight with evidence of the CIA's drug trafficking in Lebanon arrived safely to blow the whistle on the CIA. Gaddafi wanted them to arrive safely. The only ones who did was the CIA.

Founded in Jerusalem in 2002, KIDS4PEACE is a global movement of youth and families, dedicated to ending conflict and inspiring hope in divided societies around the world. The Oasis of Peace is another similar organization in Israel bringing people together in a community based on religious freedom and religious tolerance. Corrymeelaa is a like minded organization in Northern Ireland doing the same thing there. These are non profit organizations worth donating to.
There is a new book about the Hells Angels worth mentioning. It's by former Ontario Hells Angel Dave Atwell and is called The Hard Way Out: My Life with the Hells Angels and Why I Turned Against Them. It is co-written with Jerry Langton. Jerry Langton is rock solid. He spent time in New York as deputy editor for The Daily News. He has put out many credible books including Fallen Angel: The Unlikely rise of Walter Stadnick.
Jerry Langton put out one about the Bacon brothers that was informative and well written. My main concern with that one was the title. The Bacon brothers were anything but notorious. Here in Surrey they are hated for their involvement in the Surrey Six and their ass kissing of the red and white. I'm glad Jerry Langton has put out another book that I can fully endorse.
As I said during my endorsement of the book about Mob Boss Ralph Natale in The Last Don Standing, I dont normally endorse informants. Ralph Natale's case was different as was Dave Atwells. They were both screwed over by people in the game that had lost any dignity or self respect and screwed them over.
Dave Atwell sold drugs for the club in Ontario and got busted. Unlike that Justin Bieber in Cali who infiltrated Vagos, he didn't cut a deal to avoid jail time to become a rat nor was he a crystal meth dealer. He sold weed and 100 Percocets to a woman who worked at the clubhouse and turned out to be a police informant. He was arrested in a sweep with other members and spent 20 months on bail before the charges were dropped. It certainly wasn't a big bust. He wanted out but couldn’t leave because he owed the Hells Angels a huge legal bill, plus house fees.
He started selling cocaine in large quantities for the club and started working for the Ontario Biker Enforcement Unit. Similar to the OMGU here in BC that Christy Clark did away with after their huge success in Kelowna with the David Giles conviction. Atwell said he made $1,700 per kilo of cocaine he sold for the club. It was big business that had nothing to do with riding motorcycles.
I just wanted to throw out a timely tribute to Sylvester Stallone. He is a legend dripping with class. History has recorded that. His first Rocky Movie was a masterpiece as was each successive one in the series. In addition to that he has put out many classics including Rambo and the Expendables. Sylvester Stallone is someone us zoomers can relate to because he walks the walk. He is the defining role in motivation and has always retained class and dignity in everything he produced.
There is a new movie out about the Chuck Wepner story. He's the guy that went 15 rounds with Muhammad Ali and was the inspiration for the first Rocky movie. To say that Chuck Wepner is the real Rocky Balboa is completely false because Sylvester Stallone developed that character into what it was for generations past the first fight in the first movie. I don't want to disrespect Chuck Wepner because he did in fact go 15 rounds with Muhammad Ali.That was an impressive historical act he should be commended for. Chuck was the creator of the rabbit punch that Ali kept complaining about. I remember watching the fight when I was a kid. That fight may indeed have inspired the original Rocky but the character Rocky Balboa has entertained and inspired us for generations. It was a fictional character Sylvester Stallone created and developed.
Speaking of class, let's fast forward to Rocky Balboa where Rocky defends little Marie years after trying to steer her away from the sleazebags she was hanging around with when she was a young girl. He befriends her and her son and she ends up helping him in the process.
The movie Creed was a masterpiece. My daughter was never really into the Rocky movies but when Creed came out she said a hot young black guy, I'll go to see that. She got a bit teary eyed during the movie because it hit a little too close to home. Rocky gets cancer in his old age and decides he's not going to bother fighting it. He figures he's lived a good life and it's time for the next generation to take up the torch. Then he meets Apollo's son played by Michael B. Jordan and discovers a reason to get out of bed in the morning.
Apollo's son asks Rocky about his son and asks him if he ever taught his son to box. Naw, he said. His son wasn't really into the boxing scene. He's a really good kid and moved away to a place called Vancouver to get out of his old man's shadow. Rocky's speech to his son in the Rocky Balboa movie was epic. That movie was inspired by George Foreman who went back into the ring after his retirement when he was older. George Foreman was another real life hero.
Sylvester Stallone has put out a tremendous amount of movies and they all have class. They're not trashy and they all have an inspiring moral to them. That is his legacy so it is. He has inspired us to do good and be better. Stallone won a Golden Globe for his performance in the movie Creed and well he should but the real award comes from the multitude of lives he has touched and inspired. Looking forward to the next generation, this world needs to hear a little more from rock solid actors like Michael B. Jordan and a little less from flaming idiots like Justin Beiber.

The Salon is reporting that Pamela Anderson isn’t doing a great job hiding her budding romance. Although she still won’t technically admit dating WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, she has quickly become his staunchest public defender. “Julian is trying to free the world by educating it. It is a romantic struggle - I love him for this,” Anderson told People. “I understand that our ‘affair’ and the curiosity surrounding that might bring some attention to his situation. That’s fine, but I’d rather not go into private details. Let’s just say everyone deserves love.”
All the other media outlets appear to be reporting on the interview Pamela Anderson gave about Julian in People magazine. Their reltionship even made the Rolling Stone magazine.
Now I'm certainly not going to trash Pamela Anderson. After all, she is from Vancouver. One might question some of her past relationships but ours is not to wonder why. We've all made mistakes in that area. Her promoting Julian Assange is something that I would like to address.
I'm going to highlight the differences and the similarities between Julian Assange and Edward Snowden. Whenever I have discussed Edward Snowden in the past, I have pointed out how his case is different from that of Julian Assange. It's not that I have anything against Julian, I admire and respect him. I just want to clarify how they are different for the vultures ready to lynch them.
Edward Snowden is a whistleblower. He reported illegal activity and instead of arresting the people who committed the crimes he reported, the lunatics accuse him of treason. That shows you how far astray the world has fallen from protecting civl liberty and the US Constitution.
Julian Assange is also a whistleblower but his case goes one step further and reveals military or state secrets. That crosses over into a grey area. All Edward Snowden did was simply say the NSA are breaking he law and lied to congress. He didn't reveal any military secrets. Was that a state secret? Perhaps but hiding a crime is unlawful. Wanting to try Edward Snowden for treason because he did his civic duty is astounding. The same applies to Julian Assange.
One of the first things Wikileaks revelaed that stands out in my mind was a videoclip of US Military in Iraq launching an attack on a suspected terrorist and taking out a group of civilians at the same time. It was the same old judge jury and executioner all at once. Yes this was a military secret but what they did was wrong and unlawful.
More recently he leaked out hacked e-mail from Hillary Clinton that once again showed unlawful activity. Most damaging wikileaks dot com is reporting that "10 years ago, WikiLeaks became famous for exposing elements of the Bush administration and the Iraq wars, and quickly became heroes to the left. This year, Hillary Clinton is being exposed because of the unprecedented levels of corruption throughout her history. Julian Assange, who is not necessarily pro-Trump, has stated that if any controversial Trump material is found, it will be published. However, everything controversial they have has already been said by Trump himself, according to Assange."
The Hillary Clinton hacked e-mail leak was almost too much information. There were so many e-mail it was hard to sort through them all. The most important revelations in those e-mail that the media missed or simply refused to report on was Hillary Clinton's involvement with arms dealing and drug trafficking. It also implicated Obama. Hillary Clinton was the author of Operation Fast and Furious where they were selling guns to the Mexican cartel and bringing back tons of cocaine into the US as payment. Obama knew about it and used executive privilege to hide that.
Personally, I liked Obama. I thought he was way better than George Bush. I think in some ways he conned us. The CIA were the ones that paid for his education so he most certainly didn't want to rock their boat and disrupt their arms dealing and drug trafficking network. Some could argue he didn't have a choice and that if he didn't hide Hillary Clinton's involvement with Operation Fast and Furious he would have ended up dead like JFK for vetoing Operation Northwoods.
Julian Assange also revealed that the Clinton foundation profited directly from arming ISIS. The mainstream media barely mentioned that highly significant fact. Which leads us to ask who is really controlling the mainstream media anyways? Those are two pretty important facts not to report on. I do have one comparison on how Edward Snowden and Julian Assange are similar.
In the movie about Edward Snowden it claimed his girlfriend Lindsey Mills was a pole dancer. At first I thought that was just holywood try to sex up the story. Evidently, that part was true. So now Pamela Anderson shows up helping to spice up Julian Assange's image. I wish them well.
The Vancouver Sun is reporting that Despite all efforts to provide support and assistance to intravenous drug users, people are dying of overdoses at twice the tragic rate of last year in Vancouver. Provincial health officer Dr. Perry Kendall stated “What we had been doing didn’t seem to be working.” No kidding?! Harm promotion isn't working.
Well, actually it is. Our twisted interpretation of harm reduction has indeed become harm promotion. Our harm promotion has become very effective at promoting addiction and promoting the drug trade which continues to result in more addicts and more fatalities.
This is what happens when you abandon the other three pillars: Prevention, Treatment and Enforcement. When you stop enforcing the law and start promoting illicit drug use you end up pouring gasoline on the forest fire of addiction and it burns out of control.

There are several news stories for me to catch up on over the weekend but I just wanted to throw this one out there to set the record straight. It turns out that my goddaughter was right - the Surrey Now and the Surrey Leader have merged into a new single newspaper. The new paper is called the Surrey Now-Leader.
Under the headline Welcome to Surrey's new voice it states: "Welcome to the first edition of the Surrey Now-Leader. With this first issue, Black Press has begun the transformation of the community newspaper model in Surrey by uniting two iconic tittles - the Now and the Leader - under one new umbrella. The goal is for us to be the best digital and print newspaper in Canada."
It sounds good but they don't have their new website up and running yet. I'm sure that's on its way. As I said before, it doesn't sound like a merger. It doesn't even sound like a hostile takeover. It sounds more like a corporate monopoly eliminating all the competition. The new office for the new paper is in the old Surrey Now building. The Surrey Leader building and staff have been eliminated with one sweep of the pen. It looks like the corporate monopoly completely got rid of the Surrey Leader and put their name on the Surrey Now. The Surrey Leader was indeed iconic.
As I said before, the death of the Surrey Leader has created an opportunity. If the staff from the Surrey Leader who were fired want to start their own company and create an online digital paper, I'd be all for it. I support local news. Imagine a local newspaper free to tell the truth without having to worry about pleasing big brother. Now that's an opportunity worth looking into. Peace.
Postmedia News is looking for more ways to cut costs
Update: Ah ha, the truth comes out. The Vancouver Province is reporting that Postmedia news is looking for more ways to cut costs. So the fake merger of the Surrey Leader and the Surrey Now had absolutely nothing to do with improving their digital presence. They dont even have their new website up yet. It was simply the same old unimaginative corporate hack of cut cut cut. This is the exact same beef I had with Moya Green many years ago. When you are in a service based industry and you cut all your services, you also reduce business revenue. It's that simple.
Look at how mismanagement is killing the industry. First Postmedia announced it was cutting staff by 20% after it aready fired 3 newspaper publishers to cut costs. They got rid of the chief editor of the Vancouver Province who was completely competent by throwing him back in the field and put the chief editor of the Vancouver Sun in charge of both papers. Now we have reporters from one paper writing for both papers. That in itself is not a bad thing but it has taken us somewhere we perhaps didn't want to go.
Now all the local papers sound the same. The Vancouver Metro, 24 hrs, Sun, Province, they're all the same. All the News is one homogeneous clone show. In their obsession to cut costs they have killed their market. There is nothing unique about the different papers anymore so you might as well merge them all into one since you made them all sound the same.
Part of the problem is listing companies on the stock market. That used to be just to help raise start up capital. Now it has become the norm and that's not a good thing. You can have a profitable company making money but be forced to make cuts because the stock drops in value. We have seen this happen time and time again. .
Who's going to invest in a newspaper stock nowadays? There isn't the huge potential for growth that other stocks might have. The only people that are going to invest in a newspaper are the people wanting to control it's content like Conrad Black did. So a drop in the value of the stock creates a manufactured emergency in the industry.
The only answer the unimaginative one trick pony corporate hacks can come up with is cut jobs, save money. Sometimes that's needed but at other times it's shooting yourself in the foot and kills your business revenue which makes the situation worse. If you own a restaurant and you cut all the items from your menu, not as many people are going to want to come to your restaurant and you are going to see a drop in sales.
Fortunately, there is hope on the horizon. The solution is found within free enterprise. After the corporate hacks kill the industry, independent entrepreneurs can seize the opportunity to form new companies that fill the void and find new markets by providing a digital service people are interested in. That is where the money is and that is where we can save free speech - on the Internet. My traffic is over the roof. 19 million hits and climbing. Over 50% of my readers are reading my blog on their phone. That's why my website is so simple. I dont have time to create a separate version for people's phone. All the disco sh*t doesn't work on people's phones. The blog automatically creates a separate version for cell phones. If you read my blog from a cell phone you can't see the sidebar. You can only see that if you read my blog from a computer. Saving the freedom of the press is within reach. It's found within the free market not corporate mergers.
You can get your Future dies here shirts and bumper stickers from Surrey Shirts.

Speaking of scams, since this local fraud is in the news again I will comment on it. CBC is reporting that Surrey RCMP have confirmed the president of a controversial vigilante group in the city was arrested for allegedly assaulting a target during a "sting" on Monday evening. Ryan is nothing but a Surrey drug dealer. He was convicted of possession for the purpose of trafficking in Surrey 2009. Three years before the brutal drug related murder of Janice Shore. As I said from day one, his "crew" look like a bunch of Surrey drug dealers and his criminal record confirms it.
If Ryan was selling drugs in Surrey in 2009, we all know who he was selling for. W 5 exposed Ryan for what he is. A drug dealer committing fraud to scam money from the public.
Ryan now has a second defamation lawsuit going. The second one is someone he targeted for simply disagreeing with him. The guy disagreed with the Surrey chapter's tactics so Ryan posted his picture and said this is what a pedophile looks like. That is dishonest and illegal. Many others have complained about being targeted for simply disagreeing with them. Like I said from the beginning, it is exactly how the drug dealers on the Whalley strip operate. You help us give someone the boots or else we will give you the boots. Now they are running around pretending to be heroes so they can collect money from the public when in reality they are just as bad as the pedphiles they claim to target.
People in Surrey know how the drug dealers on the whalley strip operate. On that strip, the drug dealers are the pimps. They give the sex trade workers drugs then take all their money when they get a trick. Janice Shore was beaten to death and dumped beside the very tree that the Surrey drug dealers demand free service from their sex trade workers as a warning to the rest of the sex trade workers to pay up or end up like Janice. Janice was sexually assaulted and had her head caved in from blunt force trauma all for a nominal drug debt. Like I said Ryan and the Surrey Creep Catchers are no better than the pedophiles they are pretending to save the world from.
So let's look at the latest scam. They "catch" a guy who agreed to have sex with a Surrey girl. How young? Old enough to have a 6 year old daughter so she wasn't a minor. So Ryan gets one of his "girls" to proposition a guy for sex online and he says yes and goes out to meet her. Then Ryan and the Surrey girl say hey you just agreed to have sex with a mother and her six year old daughter. The guy is like WTF no I didn't. I agreed to have sex with the mother not her daughter. The mother said she was a service provider. Yes you did. It's our word against yours.
Oh really. I'm sorry but their claim fails the test of believability. What is believable is that Ryan is so desperate for money to help cover court costs for lying about people he made up a desperate scam to raise more money. He steps it up and starts pushing the guy and making death threats so he gets arrested then plays the victim trying to raise more money for his scam.
One of the comments left on another thread claims "Ryan took my money when i was a prostitute and used me. I haven't been a prostitute for 7 years now. He threatened me for leaving when i was too sick to work anymore. I ran away. His brother punched me in the head and split my head open." That is believable. If you have money to burn, give it to someone else.
Ryan is just another Jimmy leading a parade of misfits selling snake oil to the public. I dont buy it. Many will. There will always be plenty of suckers that fall for any con. That's why they are so profitable. I'll just sit this one out and let that parade pass me right by. Peace.
Examining the Evidence
Update: In the video they posted as "evidence" the Surrey girl asked him how he felt and he said he was hesitant. He said this isn't my regular gig. This is your idea. That's all I'm going to say about that. He was continuously expressing concerns and the Surrey girl was continuously trying to encourage him. I will agree the whole thing is creepy as f*ck but the point is the guy wanted to have sex with the mother and she was the one that insisted it was a threesome. He didn't want to but she kept pushing it so that if he wanted to have sex with the Surrey girl it had to be a threesome. They didn't save the world from a pedophole, they created one.
The problem is catching predators who are preying on minors. As soon as Ryan said they caught someone trying to have sex with a 6 year old I knew he was full of sh*t. It's is very possible someone would try and prey on a 14 year old and coax them to leave their home and meet for a hook up. That is believable. Someone trying to lure a 6 year old kid online is not believable.
In Edmonton the Creep Caches targeted a mentally challenged young man/woman, went to their place of residence and confronted them claiming they just agreed to have shower sex with a minor. Three points arise. First they went to her residence. They preyed on him/her. (The target had gone through a sex change) Second they said she agreed to have shower sex with a minor. She wasn't the one that suggested it. After being coaxed she agreed to it. The third point is that their mark was obviously mentally challenged and was not capable of instigating a plot to prey on anyone. They took advantage of someone who was mentally challenged to try and make themselves look like heros. As a result the target committed suicide. That whole scenario was disgusting and shameful. There was nothing noble in it.
In the Ryan and the Surrey Girl case the whole hype and drama obsession is toxic. They insist on live streaming their takedowns. The Surrey Girl starts off by saying OK everyone share share share. We want to get lots of views on this. This guy is going to get f*cked up. She admits her need to be a drama queen and she admits that their assault was premeditated. Feeding off the drama like that is unhealthy. Good luck with that.
Then there's the entrapment argument. If an undercover cop walks down the Surrey strip outside the Front Room and a drug dealer gets in his face and says crack!? Crack?! Wanna buy come crack?! If the undercover cop says yes and buys some crack, or fentanyl or crystal meth from the dug dealer then that is fair game for an arrest. If however, the undercover cop goes somewhere else and finds someone who isn't normally selling drugs and says to them you can have sex with this trailer trash Surrey girl if you sell these drugs and the guy says OK, then that's entrapment. He wasn't normally selling drugs and only did so because the cop enticed him to do so.
As for Ryan's Surrey Girl who desperately wants to be a reality tv star and posted a video of her trying to convince someone to have sex with her 6 year old daughter, she has a criminal record for fraud and theft. Big surprise. In the video she made reference to her dealer. It certainly doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out who her dealer was.
Justin Payne is good. Ryan Laforge is not.
Here's a mentally challenged kid that lost his job because Ryan and his Surrey girl with the criminal record for fraud and theft lured him in. The kid met a girl on a dating app that said she was 19. She contacted him. After getting to know her she then claimed she was 14. He invited her to his work to meet her and go on a date not to have sex with her and he lost his job over it. There were no conversations about sex at all. Ryan exploited him for his own personal gain. Ryan is a piece of garbage. He is what we refer to locally as Surrey trash.
Now Ryan is admitting that the previous guy they tricked agreed to pay for sex with his Surrey girl. She "posed" as a sex trade worker and said if you want sex with me you have to have sex with my daughter too. That's not a citizen's arrest you dumb f*ck. You don't even know how to make a citizen's arrest. You didn't observe him commit a crime and you didn't charter him. In their evidence the Surrey girl admitted their mark told them he had never done anything like that before and was simply agreeing with what the sex trade worker demanded. Ryan and his Surrey trash call the cops but refuse to hand over the evidence that might convict their mark.
Then trailer trash Surrey girl posts on facebook with the hashtag #gooflivesdontmatter and #fuckthepolice. She's right about one thing. Their crew of Surrey trash don't matter, the police do.
Ryan Laforge video soliciting donations from mark
I have a copy of a video Ryan posted soliciting donations from their mark. Ryan says to the mark why don't you do something posative like make a huge donation to sexually abused children or something like that. At 14:00 in the video Ryan says you are going on facebook. If you are really really serious about this being wrong our organization we need all kinds of things man. We need cell phones. I'm just saying. If a donation of cell phones came that would help us find more guys, that would be something posative. That's not extortion. (Yes it is) You asked what you could do. The mark replied and said I'll help you guys out. Then Ryan goes on more about how donating to his organization would be a good thing. W5 exposed Ryan for what he really is.
Party hardy toy soldiers. Pride cometh before the fall so it does.
