~ O CANADA.. the land of the clueless and exploitable. We’re fierce in wars in other places.. fighting for ourselves, or at home? Not so much.
We’re the land of peace and good government, of Do What You’re Told unless you want to be in trouble– where we signal at 3AM traffic stops and apologize when people step on our toes. No, really.
Except.. it makes us suckers. Canadians pay more than they should for almost everything– even if it’s produced here, and shipped and sold cheaper elsewhere. Idiot taxes & not-paying-attention-taxes apply.
What’s NOT More Costly?
Books, cars (even cars made here, 10-15%+.. Americans in Hawaii still pay less than Canadians), consumer electronics, cell phones, taxes (42%), prescriptions, food, bus & airfares, clothing, gasoline, tools, hockey tickets, healthcare, internet access & phone plans, alcohol.. we hardly ever ask questions why– even with a 70% Trudeau dollar– things can still be cheaper for us on Amazon, eBay, or with cross-border shopping. If you try and cross-border car-shop? The dealers have been told to chase you away, and the paper-work and fees are crushing.
The grey-market is growing, but boy-oh-boy do Canadians feel dirty and guilty for avoiding taxes and tariffs.
How bad is it under the tax-loving deficit-spending Trudeau 2.0 regime? The middle class now pays more on taxes than we do on food, clothes, and shelter. The TOTAL tax & hidden expenses burden on Canadians is over 70%. How delightful!
And no, it’s not just the price of doing business in Canada… although many Trudeau 1.0 era (and earlier) tariffs and product-supply “management” on staples such as milk & eggs & wheat & poultry? All adds up to 150-300% prices on such items… we did this to ourselves, as part of protecting our markets from the U.S. behemoth. Plus, it’s a nice monopoly for our own producers, against the public– just like our airline monopoly. Government– 3 times the cost, and 1/3 the service!
Our infamous socialist “Free health care”? Depending on your income, it costs about $12-35K per person. Since the Chretien “balanced budgets” of the early ’90s, when he downloaded healthcare costs to people and provinces as federal “savings”, it’s not even that good, fast, or effective any more. Innovation? Rationing.. and people who can’t even get a doctor aside from the ER.
Screw Us Over! We Love It!
The insane cost of electricity in Ontario? Because the progressives in the Liberal government don’t know how to science, math, or government very well.
Gas prices in Nova Scotia, an oil & gas producing province? Sky-high, because governments are stupid and, again, the Chretien-era agreements basically make us a pipeline to the U.S., with minuscule benefits for the general populace, local economy or workforce or gas-prices. Maybe 2% lower fuel prices, or a cut in provincial gas-taxes? A pay-down on the provincial debt? A provincial rainy-day fund? It is to laugh. AMERICA benefits from OUR exported lower-priced oil and gas.
We just accept it. We’re used to being screwed over on prices by governments & taxation, Canadian retailers & producers, and some American retailers. Everybody, basically.
Why do we pay sop much more? Idiot tax. Not Paying Attention Tax. Thoughtless compliance with unjust authority, worst practices, corruption, and outdated money-grabbing policies. Shrug & cough up.
So our economy and tax-burden and debt and deficits and future for our kids is circling the shitter… never mind.. as long as we can get a cool picture with Prince Selfie, we’re awesome!
~ TEH BINKS, he comes from a solidly medical family (on one side): my Dad was a pathologist like his Scots-Canadian Dad before him; Dad’s Mom trained as a nurse (RN); my Mom trained as an Occupational Therapist; my Dad’s brother is a surgeon, his sister a nurse & nursing professor (both volunteered to aid victims after the Haiti Earthquake), my aunt a dental nurse (RN). I was supposed to be a pathologist, too, but you can’t do that with math-dyslexia, it turns out.
Thus, I respect what doctors are & can do, but I also know what they aren’t and can’t do… and sometimes, medicos are simply and utterly underwhelming. That, plus an overworked medical and nursing profession, health cutbacks, and too much bureaucracy & government rationing = special fun.
Binks Has The Crud
After the six hour sweaty dizzy painy weaky stint in the ER, Dr. Snitty McNoBedside *should* have said: “Sir, I’m glad to say it’s not acute or flagrant appendicitis yet, according to the tests.. however, you clearly are in pain, and your body is possibly reacting to some kind of intestinal inflammation and infection. Given your immune-issues, I strongly suggest you see your GP first thing tomorrow, and see if he recommends some antibiotics or other treatment.”
What was said to me from the above? Nada. I might as well have been a malingering street-bum looking for a mercy-hit of opioids– “You have nothing that we can treat here.” You effing loon.
Off To Another Doc
This morning? Still sweaty dizzy painy weaky. Not well. My amazing GP gave me antibiotics, for an obvious bout of intestinal/ diverticular inflammation-infection. Like I tried to tell them in the ER.
Thing is, I’m a pro-active patient, attentive to my health because I have to be. I have a medically aware mind, if not training, and I’m willing to speak up and ask questions, because doctors have not descended on a ray of light from a higher plane.
What about the quiet patient? The fearful & overly-respectful? Someone without an advocate (like She-Binks & I have in each other)? Someone with actual or serious disease which does not fit the diagnostic model? Someone with a crappy doctor? Really serious medical problems? Semi-compis mentis?
Even as we waited yesterday, the loudspeaker squeaked some code-message: I asked the nurse what it was about– the ER was officially too full. No room left. At 6pm.
We’ve had a mild debate in this country about “two-tier” health care. The bitter truth is, we have many-tier health care– all depending on rich/ poor; outspoken or quiet; rural or urban; bitchy or over-patient; informed or uninformed.
And we’re burying more people than we should– at $12-30K per person for our “free” health care, because of ER and surgical wait-times, doctor-shortages, and wait-times to see specialists. Here in NS, there are still several hundred thousand people with no family doctor.. who end up in the ER for ordinary medical issues, prescriptions and the like. Nationally, 15% of the public have no GP. It’s become euthanasia by waiting-list.. the silent killer.
Meanwhile, no doubt Glorious Leader & saviour SelfieMan Justin in Ottawa will send countless billions overseas to improve ER wait-times in some other land than his own, you know, the one he has a duty and responsibility for, in law and by God. It is to weep.
I’m really starting to think that– just like Obama and America, Mr. Trudeau & his bosses & minions &the bureaucracy don’t give a flying f*ck about ordinary people, or the suffering and death of Canadians on their watch. It’s not about you, schmuck.
Finally, In Concussion
From what I recall of yesterday afternoon & evening of the intake staff, nurses, and the intern doc? Superb. Dr. Snitty McNoBedside? Considering registering an official complaint.
Having a super-crappy day. Love you all, anyway. Prayers, please.
~ FUN WITH Political Assassination.. not just for tinpot dictatorships, and Renaissance Italy & the Medici family anymore.
Someone brave (and who doesn’t mind dying suddenly in a tragic & bizarre accident tomorrow) needs to write a history of modern murder & assassination by the rich, political, globalist, pervert, and other elite classes throughout the 20th century. Name names, cite cases, spill details.
I think it would be a best-seller, and the sheer numbers and examples of names and ways to erase the bothersome, the whistle-blowers, the know-too-muches, the inconvenient, the trouble-makers– it would shock and astonish us. Popes, Cardinals, presidents, CEOs, rich drug-lords, celebrities, wealthy families, the CIA & FBI, secret cabals, conspiracies, big corporations– everybody does it from time to time, for any number of nefarious reasons.
Oops! An Accidental
Keep an eye on the whistleblowers, the uppity, the awkwardly uncooperative, those who think they are safe because they know where the skeletons are buried, or who know too much, the crusaders, the exposers and dogged journalists & reporters.. and note how they are either professionally disassembled via the politics of personal destruction.. or else how they suddenly and mysteriously die in any number of creative ways. Bullets, poisons, cancers & sudden diseases, car or airplane crashes, gym “accidents”, robberies-gone-wrong, “random” violence.. you name it. Money and a little creativity = plausible deniability.
The police or investigating authorities– if they are not already in on it– can be threatened, bought off, see careers ruined and promotions shelved.. or be offed as well. The establishment has many secrets to hide, and will close ranks. The news-monkey media is mostly bought off. The family of the offed and the public will often keep silent with what they know or suspect, for pure fear of the deadly consequences, and being “found dead” next. Silence is safest.
The churches– all of them– shield & protect criminals, and the guilty protect and cover for each other. Pedophilia, pederasty and many other crimes shame the name of Christ and shred the authority of such churches… yet the guilty are not often caught, or punished, or defrocked. Everybody has something bad on somebody.
Just Make Them Go Away
Jill Dando? Liz MacKean? Veronica Guerin? Vince Foster? The Kennedy brothers, and JFK Jr.?, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, critics and opponents of the Clinton Presidency, and the Obama administrations? Seth Rich, Ron Brown…. it’s a long list of possibles and likelys and almost-certains.
Many of the great and powerful are horrid, dirty, depraved and evil people. The European and North American elites are all implicit in this quiet murder spree, and have been since the middle of the 19th century, at least… and particularly since the Second World War.
It’s an ancient human way of operation. Still useful today in Church & state, business and politics– and the Soviet Union was expert at such things. Dirty deeds done cheap, no questions, no loose ends… and under Putin, reporters and political trouble-makers just keep suddenly and unexpectedly dying.
We Have No King But Caesar
Of course, this is the same idea found in the New Testament, with the plots against the life of Jesus. Even mutual enemies come together in the scheme– ‘Silence his disruptive words and deeds, before our whole rotten human world of lies and excuses and hypocrisy and sin and cover-ups comes crashing down.. muzzle the God-Man and make him go away.’ “Crucify him!”
Get a few false witnesses, a secret trial-by-night. bully the politically vulnerable Pontius Pilate, and the walking trouble from Nazareth is dead and silenced and sealed in a tomb guarded by soldiers… who can always be threatened, bribed, or silenced if anything awkward happens.
Such is the way of the world, of our human hearts avoiding the light & truth.. from the little kid covered in cookie crumbs and chocolate who denies he ate the cookies, up to the billionaire CEO or prince of the Church or political family mafia who seek safety in darkness and silencing and a little murder now and again. The body count is always there.
And yet– God is truth; from him no secrets are hid; the clevers and those with blood on their hands may escape prosecution, imprisonment or execution in this life, but God is not mocked. Jesus– our saviour & judge– warned [St. Luke 12:3]
“For everything that you will say in darkness shall be heard in the light and whatever you whispered in an ear in an inner chamber will be preached on the rooftops.”
Justice shall be done; the innocent and the murdered and the victims shall receive their due; the schemers and assassins and those who use them will receive perfect and inescapable divine judgment and eternal consequences; such worldly “power” and destructiveness in the service of evil, lies, sins, power, and cruelty will be revealed as the bestial and demonic work of Satan himself, the murderer and father of lies.
My hope is in Christ.. the worldling or Jihadist or power-monger may try to silence me, but they cannot not silence my Jesus, and it’s Risen His life in me which is my joy and peace, my redemption and forgiveness. Period.*
* P.S. Just in case I turn up suddenly and inexplicably deceased, having first handcuffed and tied my self up, shot myself in the back 10 times with a bolt action rifle before running myself over in a steamroller– and then being involved in a “fatal” airplane crash, and subsequently crushed by a falling safe.. please feel free to ask many many questions. ~
“If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”
+ + +
~ THE OLD ROMAN policy of ‘Bread and Circuses‘ (food & fun, as mocked at by the poet Juvenal) worked pretty well at keeping the masses quiet. But what if…
…Whilst lined up for the dole, people started talking about politics, and public scandal? What if, during the intermissions at the games, the people asked awkward questions which the powers that be would rather not have asked?
That is where we’ve been for a while on the internet freedom issue. The entertainment/ learning/ fun hub has also been a dangerously effective way of speaking truth to power, fact-checking, criticizing our rulers, broaching forbidden topics, and getting the news and facts out there outside the usual machine for dispensing pablum with Prozac known as The Mass Media.
Now we come to it: what will the powers– the politician/ Google/ FaceBook Banking Consortium do when Bread & Circus no longer pacifies? Purge. Silence. Block. Bankrupt.
Individual have been getting blocked and banned on Facebook and YouTube; Google search algorithms are being hard-leftified; blogs are threatened and shut down; whole YouTube channels are being (a) de-monetized (no advertising money for the content producers), (b) kicked off the sidebar & ‘what’s new’ and ‘what’s popular’ lists; (c) categorized & hidden behind an “Offensive” listing; (d) Just shut down altogether. Plus, Patreon will arbitrarily deprive people of income, and people their freedom to donate and support those causes… thanks, CEO Jack Conte!
Shame If Anything Happened To It…
Not very long ago, a whole group of the most visited non-progressive Catholic FaceBook pages simply vanished one day. No warning, explanation, or apologies. The uproar ensued, and presto-bango-bingo they all reappeared!.. plus a lame ‘malfunction’ excuse. I consider this pre-purge testing: “What if we purge this stuff– what’s the reaction? Also, can we erase a category of pesky crap?”
Over the past 2-3 months, YouTube has also hired certifiably rabid & totalitarian radical progressive watchdogs to ‘guide’ the Google sub-corporation (yes, the Monopoly is real) into calm all-is-happy waters. You know, where no upsetting stuff is online, or is de-monetized, hidden, or put behind special barriers for ‘controversial content’. No, not porn, or bloodthirsty Islamic propaganda, or actually objectionable content, but upsetting & incorrect opinions and thoughts.
If you’re not Social Justice Snowflake.. pro-Islam.. pro-radgay & pro-trans.. pro-ANTIFA.. pro-globalist.. anti-Trumper.. pro-climate emergency.. pro-political hamster cage– the usual crap– then, increasingly, The Google/ Twitter/ YouTube/ Blogging Platform Monster wants to kick you down & out. SkyNet is a progressive cry-bully: and it’s invading our lives & rights & freedoms.
Shut Up, Truth & Fact Mongers!
Just like the Human Rights Kangaroo Courts in Canada, the crucial fact is this: truth & freedom & reason & fair opinion is NOT A DEFENCE. Even The mighty Drudge Report has felt the chilling breezes, and Matt Drudge himself was warned that in case of a Clinton Presidential win in 2016, he had better go find himself another job.. likely just before he tragically killed himself tomorrow, out of the blue. Very tragic.
In this case, you can kinda sorta actually blame Donald Trump. He was not the chosen of the global or progressive or Dempublican American elites; he was a joke candidate; Queen Hillary should now be ruling, silencing, controlling, and putting an end to any difficult political and cultural and religious majorities interfering with The Process.
But The Internets.. the lies.. the mocking.. the sick Hillary.. the actual story sneaking out from past the dino-media party.. the polls being set aside, instead of obeyed. Time will tell if the current American Devolution will succeed in destroying or impeaching the outspoken and clownish Donald Trump for crimes against the elite masterplan– but if the Google/ Twitter/ YouTube Machine has it’s way, the next attempted rebellion will not be seen on YouTube, discussed on Twitter, blogged about extensively, fact-checked, or otherwise allowed to interfere with The Plans.
In this brave new world, freely shared truth & freedom & reason & fair opinion will be forbidden, and is NOT A DEFENCE. Period.
What is most astonishing, of course, is that the progressive powers imagine the truth & freedom & faith genie can be shoved back in the bottle so easily. Time will tell if they can get most of the toothpaste back into the tube, or at least cap it, so they can shut off the flow, and try and silence the signal.
Yet the Social media masters are deadly serious. The enpurgening is now…. the most visible and noisy controversialists go first.
It is becoming clear what the soft-totalitarians in the West want. YouGoogTwit™ is not on our side; it is now being remodeled as the front-end of the Gentle Silencing Machine. The new mantras? “Bread and Circuses! Everybody Smile! Radical Left Opinions Are All True! All is well! Believe The Masters! Don’t Be A Negative Nancy! Nothing to see here! Be fed & amused & obedient, that is the highest good!”
“Diversity”? Goolag management didn’t just disagree with a scientifically sensible (here’s another take) pinion by an evil white male Google employee on men & women in STEM careers– they fired the guy, and tried to make him unemployable. Truth? DEFENESTRATE! Some lefty-media even called it a ‘screed’ and waved the ‘alt-right’ (i.e., non-progtard) flag over the controversy, because it broached forbidden and settled topics in the reality-lite Progressive undiverse.
Since reality is not a progressive strong-point, you generally just have to expose what they are up to, when (not if) they stumble and make a cruel stupid mess of things, and fall into the trap they placed for someone else. The lawyers will win in the end— but hopefully truth & freedom online gets some breathing-room despite YouGoogTwit™’s clumsy-stupid.
Finale, In Conclusions
Ultimately, God. Does he exist, or not; knowable, or not? Revealed once for all in Christ Jesus, or not? It has moral, legal, intellectual, and even online implications if “Yes”.
The pillars of the West– even those abstracted by the Left (“Judge not” or “love your neighbour” or equality)– are based on Greco-Roman Judaeo-Christianity thought, law, and faith. As these are attacked, the whole structure is weakened, not just the parts the revolutionaries want to wreck because Utopia.
The real issue is one of faith, hope, and love: do we still believe in truth, do we still have hope in God? Do we love ourselves and our neighbours enough to reject current versions of Bread & Circuses, and false peace when there is no peace? When we look into ourselves, is there any “There” there? Are we slaves in waiting, or glorious free citizens of heaven in pilgrimage here on earth, doing His will here as there?
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be encumbered once more by a yoke of slavery.” [Galatians 5:1]
“Ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make ye free.” [John 8:32]
Come and get me, ya evil bastards.

~ SOME PEOPLE really don’t ‘get’ the massive popularity of video games.
The following YouTube links are a movie composed of pieces of the fantasy video-game Skyrim (2011), assembled into a feature-length film. It must have taken forever.
This may help you non-gamers understand the craving in so many souls– especially those of young men– to be part of The Story, to fight for good against evil, to be a bold and brave hero, to overcome the odds.
Skyrim is still hugely popular in 2017, thanks to the amazing community of mod-makers, who have updated and added to the game in ways which make it so much better than it ever was.
Seeking The Things
In a past blog-entry– partly on Rebel.com— I discussed how a society of doubt, where believing in the good and the true and the holy is discouraged, damaged and distracts the souls of people who want to be good, and to the right thing. Most of us do not want to be villains, losers, or hapless minions. Perhaps this is some of the power behind malignancies like Social Justice Warriorism, radical feminism, and ANTIFA thuggery– seeking a way to stand up and stand out, although in the wrong way and not for the highest things.
Truth be told, the diversion of virtue and courage into the soft pleasure-seeking of easy video games is not the best for anyone– these are entertainments only– but they point to something true about people we seek in the playground, the back-yard, anywhere knightly kids play games, and fight play-dragons, and rescue the weak.
Islam has this figured out with the spending of the lives of young men in the great quest known as Jihad– our own sick society has damned crusading, mocked knightly virtue, ridiculed faith & sacrifice, and exalted a cowardly conformity as the highest good. Yawn.
~ NOW THAT the wise and clever warriors of ANTIFA (or ‘Black Bloc’) have declared that All The Things except things they like are Nazi, it’s time to break open an ancient conspiracy.
The so-called civilized and cultured Romans were all Nazis.
Look at the statue of their Caesar– just about giving the Hitler-salute!
Or just look at their armies, marching about with snappy outfits and loud music and banners and eagles and suchlike– just like the Nazis!
Nazism viewed Germany as the Third Rome.. or Reich.
Some Roman rulers had peculiar facial hair (such as Nero the Neckbeard)– just like Hitler, ruler of the Nazis!
Adolf Hitler’s dreamed-of Berlin– to be renamed “Germania”– was full of grandiose Roman-style architecture and buildings– imperial, powerful, and overwhelming.
Thus, all correct-thinking members of the anti-fascist alliance, when you are smashing skulls and storming and trooping and hunting your enemies like the reeking untermensch they are, beware the Romans, who were all Nazis!
I CANNOT FORGET the gawd-awful BOOOOOOOOM. The rectory office windows rattled a bit; I felt the shake through the floor as well as in the air. September 2, 1998, 9:31pm.
Rushing outside, I peered in the direction of the Tim Hortons.. had their propane gone up? Nothing. The night was dark. No alarums or excursions or bright lights, but I felt deep in my bones this noise was bad. Bad bad.
Hmm. As a chaplain to the local fire department, I headed over there.. just next door. The doors were open, some members were milling about with coffee, and the TVs were on the news…
Word began to come in.. a Swiss airliner flying from New York to Switzerland had crashed somewhere near us… possibly inland, they thought. The alarm went off, cars raced up, the members were still hauling on gear as the trucks raced off with them, leaving a small crew behind to man the radio, and monitor the news. Tom the fire chief told me later that they’d even beaten the Hubbard’s Volunteer Fire Department to the scene.. only.. there was no scene.
Cell Phones: Not Useless
I called all the local clergy I could.. the Pentecostal guy on Tancook, the Anglican rectors along the coast in Blandford and elsewhere; the local Baptist guy. Local & area fishermen were heading out for some basic search and rescue, if possible.. they found only wreckage of the McDonnell Douglas MD-11.. luggage.. shredded body parts.. everywhere, the stench of aircraft fuel. 229 men women and children went into the water, but none were now alive to rescue.
In Halifax, my Anglican bishop called some clergy to come to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital to wait for possible survivors. No survivors ever came. The clergy– from as far as an hour and a half out from Halifax– drove home in the early hours, as the scope of the disaster became clear.
As then-rector of the nearby Chester Parish, I helped out as I was able, including holding an internationally reported-on church service which filled the main parish church to the rafters, partly recorded for PBS. I gave interviews, made a small blog for news, tried to help my fire-fighters and other local clergy in the aftermath.
As a typical Canadian, I assume the best about “order and good government”; and that people are, on the whole, not too bad. Assume– or hope for– the best.
Of course, Canadians had served, fought, and died in many 20th century wars: World Wars 1 & 2, The Korean “Police Action”; Vietnam; the Balkans & Somalia; the Bush Family Iraq Wars; Afghanistan; and even the illegal attacks on Libya in support of the terrorist-backed “Arab Spring” being engineered out of NATO & Washington and other Western capitals.
Still, it doesn’t happen here, eh? We’re nice. Mostly harmless. Nobody would think to– directly or indirectly– exploit, abuse, or harm us, would they? This deliberate niavete continues to 2017, and our widespread official non-response to the realities of Jihad, Islamic culture, and Muslim Supremacist activities in our country.
Opening My Eyes
The last I knew– after the ridiculous official Mourning Show & Hug In put on by Liberal then-Prime Minister Chretien and his bullying PMO, which actually forbade all the Christian clergy attending from naming Jesus Christ in the ‘ecumenical service’– was that the official report blamed the onboard entertainment service for causing a fire, etc. etc., loss of power, crash, all lives lost. Very sad, all over except the crying.
Until about 10 days ago.
Must Pee The Dog
Wee Wallace The Wonder Poodle has his routine, and I like to stick to it. His latter walk includes going up the hill to be snarled at by a neighbor-dog ‘Coco’; and then hoping to see his darling poochy-love Bella.. a small Lassie-type dog.
I was chatting with Bella’s owner, and she said her husband had come across an eye-opening book by a retired RCMP investigator for the SwissAir 111 case. The book said that the crash was due to a bomb, but the authorities– including the RCMP, and the powers that be in Ottawa, had been part of a cover-up.
So I told her a little of my involvement in the matter, and she left me outside for a second– with Bella & Wallace doing their doggy-waltz– and got the book to lend. I just finished reading it yesterday.
Given what we all thought we knew, this was a revelation. I could be no more shocked than if I heard that ground-shaking BOOOOM all over again at this very moment.
Swissair 111 crashed in 1998. Now, 19 years later, the leading RCMP forensic investigator for the Swissair, RCMP Sgt. Tom Juby, has tried to connect the dots, and set the record straight. He has paid personally, professionally and humanly for his due diligence in research, expertise, identifying remains, the recording & photographing the wreckage of the crashed airline after it was recovered from the sea-floor by divers and huge grapple-salvage barges and the help of other ships.
It’s dense; well-written; factual; I’m not going to give a review except to say it possibly reveals fraud, criminal conspiracy, interference in police investigation and forensic evidence gathering, a massive cover-up, and blatant lying and falsifying the truth to America, Canada, the Swiss, and the world– all in line with the likewise covered-up crash of TWA800, and other terror attacks which have blighted our world since the original Twin Towers Bombing of 1993.
Long story short: an incendiary device of some sort appears to have been deliberately inserted in the “attic space” of Swissair 111, where it would do the most damage to the electrical system. The resulting fire burnt at 1700C, melting aluminum and sealing in tell-tale chemical traces into the nearby wires. Whether this was terrorism, or has to do with the missing cargo of diamonds and paintings, and a hope that the plane would have crashed deep in the ocean remains unclear. The recipe for the bomb-type used was (and still is) readily available on the internet.
Make It Worse? OK.
Worse, leading figures and their intermediaries in the the RCMP and the TSB (Canadian Transportation Safety Board) appear to have lied and concealed the truth of what happened to the 229 homicide victims of Swissair 111, as well as from the U.S government and investigators, the FAA, the FBI, and the US, Canadian, and Swiss public.
Good old (Liberal) Canadian officialdom. Lies, cover-ups, collusion, pre-determined reports counter to evidence; top-down bullying & incompetence and illegal threat-making. Blame the lower-downs. Hide the stuff. Don’t make important people look bad. Don’t let the media know, or the public suspect. It’s all settled– “Accident”– so keep on message. Or else.
While Justin Trudeau is in power, there will be no re-opening or proper criminal investigation of the crash or the cover-up of this shameful episode in Canadian history, given that it took place on the Liberal Party watch. Sunny days.
