The Reform Coalition of Canada Applies to be Heard by the Fadden-

Motivated Public Safety and National Security Committee

Establishment-protecting national security academic Reg Whitaker, a confessed long-term associate of CSIS Director Fadden, stated “I just find that extraordinary and astonishing, because there was no gain for him to say it”; referring to the bombshell accusations made on June 21, 2010.  It can only be reasonably explained in the context of what the RCC is planning, namely a national awareness campaign to expose a dimension of federal and provincial governance successfully concealed from public view for three decades involving Chinese joint governance, economy monopolization and wealth embezzlement.  Having been in the civil service for decades and knowing full well how the rich and powerful react to controversy, the spy chief baited them and accurately predicted formal inquiries would follow.  The first is a House of Commons committee whose mandate is to investigate foreign influence that undermines Canada’s security interests.


The predecessor of today’s Chairman of the House committee that sits on July 5th in a special summer session to find out more about the CSIS Director’s accusations, Liberal MP and lawyer Derek Vincent Lee, was approached in the spring of 2008 as part of the edification of all parliamentarian backbenchers.  As his political curriculum vitae indicates, he was a member from May 1991 to October 1993 and then the Chair from January 1994 to April 1997 and January 2001 to November 2003.  He was also the opposition’s Assistant Critic of CSIS from 1989 to 1993 and from 2002 to 2003.  When the National Security Division of the RCMP launched the Security of Information Act investigation in September 2008 pursuant to the RCC founder’s complaint, he was again contacted.  Despite repeated requests over two months he never once called.    



This was viewed as in part corroborative of political complicity viz. unconstitutional and unlawful Chinese interests and in part more evidence of a Parliament-wide abdication of public interest responsibility, because the same reaction was observed when the Senate’s Committee on National Security and Defence, headed by Senator Colin Kenny (Lib., Ont., 1984), refused to accede to a January 2008 request exactly like the one now being made to the House committee.  



On March 11, 2008 correspondence to the Senator began as follows:



It came to my attention today from the Clerk that your committee failed to place the above-captioned on the National Security committee agenda.  As I indicated in my telephone call to [your executive assistant] Jessica this afternoon, this is an abominable abdication of senatorial responsibility and cannot but raise convincing proof of loyalty to the officials, individuals and foreigners involved in these illegal, tortious and human rights, constitutional and UN Charter violating matters.   




His wasn’t the only senatorial committee empowered through a formal request to investigate.  So was the Committee on Legal & Constitutional Affairs, then chaired by Joan Fraser (Lib., Que., 1998).  Unlike Senator Kenny, Senator Fraser authored correspondence, stating:



[T]he issues you raise do not appear to fall within the general mandate of the Committee.  This combined with the Committee’s heavy legislative agenda will prevent us from undertaking such a study in the foreseeable future.


On the Committee’s website the following appears:



The Committee has a mandate to examine … legal and constitutional matters generally, including: (1) federal-provincial relations; (2) administration of justice, law reform and all related matters; (3) the judiciary; (4) all essentially juridical matters…



Undeniably the Committee’s responsibilities include overseeing the proper operation and integrity of the entire administration of justice; and investigating constitutional matters such as how the country is governed.  Members therefore are required to investigate why part of the legal profession was complicit in Chinese joint governance and economy monopolization (large law firms dotting the Is and crossing the Ts of economic activity per The Sidewinder Report) and chiefs and associate chiefs refusing to address Law Society failings as documented



The Chrétien-appointed Senator stupefyingly non-prioritizes these matters arguing the Committee has a “heavy legislative agenda”.  Constituents of the country’s administration of justice procured, perpetuated and are now protecting unlawful Chinese interests and it’s decided these matters aren’t to be investigated?   



Other senatorial committees that received requests included Aboriginal Peoples, Banking, Trade & Commerce, Foreign Affairs & International Trade and Human Rights.  None of them put these matters on their agendas and not a single chairperson bothered authoring a rejection letter; all of which added to the evidence there was a multi-institutional abdication of responsibility.  



When the edification campaign began in late summer 2007 Senate Majority Leader Majory LeBreton (Cons., Ont., 1993) was contacted.  In her correspondence dated August 24th she states: 



While your commentaries make for interesting reading and are well written and articulate, I have seen no evidence during my time in the Senate or while working for the government to support any of your contentions with respect to the government of China and the government of Canada.  



It was hoped when the edification campaign commenced the Upper Chamber, being the first political institution contacted, would behave the way our founding fathers intended:



The Fathers of Confederation gave inordinate consideration to the subject of the upper chamber, precisely because of the integral role they intended it to play. [...] All members … agreed that the role of the Senate was to be a check on the House of Commons. [...] The Senate was designed to act as a check on the power of the executive16




16Even at the turn of the century, the Senate was regarded as such a check, as noted by Sir Clifford Clifton: it must also be remembered that, under our system, the power of the Cabinet tends to grow at the expense of the House of Commons. ...The Senate is not so much a check on the House of Commons as it is upon the Cabinet, and there can be no doubt that its influence in this respect is salutary." ("The Foundation of a New Era", in J.O. Millet, ed., The New Era in Canada. London, 1917, p. 50).

On July 2, 2010 a formal request was made by the RCC to the House Committee on Public Safety and National Security to submit its evidence:


Parliament of Canada

House of Commons

Ottawa, Ontario 

Attention: Marc Oliver Girard, Clerk of the Committee 

Dear Sir: 


Re:  Briefing on the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, July 5, 2010


This is to advise that I am the founder of the Reform Coalition of Canada.  I formally request to be heard as a witness at the above-captioned to give testimony on matters directly relevant to submissions and evidence of CSIS Director Richard Fadden.  I conducted an in-depth and comprehensive research project, which began in March 2004 and has continued to the present day.   

Best regards,

MPs Breitkreuz and Holland were recipients of the Fiefdom treatise in the spring of 2008.   Now as Chair and Vice-Chair of the committee, it will be interesting to see how they deal with the request.  Will it be more institutional abdication – which will fuel RCC invitees’ justification for joining the national awareness campaign, or will they show loyalty to Canadian interests by acceding to the request to be heard?
