Lyme Disease The Act Respecting a Federal Framework on Lyme Disease became law on December 16, 2014. This was my private member’s bill, C-442, first tabled in June 2012. It is one of fewer than 2% of private member’s bills to become law. Hundreds of Lyme disease patients across Canada worked very hard to bring ...

The new bill, C-51, is described by the government as an anti-terrorism act. Having studied it, I cannot agree that it is primarily addressing the threat of terrorism. Acts of terrorism are a threat. They are criminal acts of horrific cruelty and sadism. Luring of disenfranchised, disenchanted, alienated Canadians into their barbaric crusade must be ...

By the time you receive this newsletter, Bill C-51, the so-called “Anti-Terrorism Act,” will likely have become law. It is my hope, and the hope of many more, that the bill is subjected to meaningful amendments. When I first spoke out about this legislation, I was almost alone. Now concerns are growing and many prominent ...

Over $12 billion has been spent by the federal government on increased security since 9-11. The question of whether that was the best way to protect ourselves needs to be asked.  In the wake of the murder of Corporal Nathan Cirillo on October 22, 2014, we need to ask what could have been done to ...

The rise of ISIS has been raised in my Town Halls ever since fall 2014. There is no doubt that the brutal and sadistic acts of violence perpetrated by this group disturb and outrage us all. While focusing on ISIS, suddenly in January, it was Al-Qaeda behind the attacks in Paris. Meanwhile, Boko Haram continues ...

May 19, 2011 Just weeks after the May 2nd election I wrote the Chief Electoral Officer to request an investigation into the attempts at electoral fraud across Canada. “During Election Day, May 2nd 2011, Canadians from coast to coast reported receiving bogus calls misdirecting them to the wrong polling stations. This sort of activity is ...

I think so. Defeated Liberal candidate Briony Penn thinks so. Do you remember that election? The Conservative candidate was incumbent Gary Lunn. Penn was the Liberal candidate, Andrew Lewis was running for the Greens and the NDP candidate, Julian West, had had to withdraw from the race. By the time West withdrew it was past ...

Mr. Justice Mosley found “that the most likely source of the information used to make the misleading calls was the CIMS database maintained and controlled by the CPC, accessed for that purpose by a person or persons currently unknown to this Court. There is no evidence to indicate that the use of the CIMS database ...

Michael Sona was convicted on the evidence of a number of people. His friends, testifying reluctantly for the most part, painted a picture Mr. Justice Hearn found convincing – of a young man with a flair for drama, who loved his role in a political act of criminality. Michael Sona was so thrilled with the ...

It is instructive to read the two court rulings back to back. One, Mr. Justice Mosley from the Federal Court was dealing with what is generally called the Council of Canadians case – an attempt to overturn the election of six conservative MPs where fraudulent calls had been made. He ruled in 2013. In the ...
