Cornwall ON – Politics, security and murder have a long relationship. Rivers of intrigue fill the human story. Water is the stuff of life. This story is about water and health.
Water War Crimes is a site run by John Carten. He has gathered together a trove of information asserting that eighteen of Canada’s civil servants have been recently murdered. Their deaths seemingly linked by a pair of conflicts linked to Western Canada Water Enterprises, Sun Belt Water, Maximus Inc. and Themis Program Management. John Carten granted an interview with me last night for Cornwall Free News.
Mr. Carten, of the Water War Crimes site, sees 18 filled body bags which he feels are strongly related to issues revolving around water exports and medical costs. He lists them as follows: 1. Deputy Minister of Justice John Tait – 1999. 2. Justice James Taylor – 2006. 3. Judge Sid Clark – 2007. 4. Justice Robert Edwards – 2007. 5. Chief Justice Antonio Lamer – 2007. 6. Chief Justice Alan McEachem – 2008. 7. Justice Ralph Hutchinson – 2008. 9. Chief Judge Hugh Stansfield – 2009. ( Jim Judd appointed Director of CSIS announced retirement – April 2009.) 10. Justice David Vickers – 2009. 11. Justice John Bouck – 2010. 12 Jack Ebbers , civil servant – 2010. 13. Glen Shortliffe, 1988-1992 Privy Council – 2010. 14. Mario Lague, 1998-2003 Privy Council, advisor to Ignatieff – 2010. 15. Senator Norm Aitkins – 2010. 16. Maurice Foster – 2010. 17. Jack Hooper, retired associate Director of CSIS – 2010. 18. David Lam, retired Lt. Governor of BC – 2010.
“Hard to say if it’s related or not but yet another coincidence is the death, last week of Michel Gratton in Ottawa.” Gratton, 58 was the author of Spy World, published in 1994. The book was about the relationship between the US and Canadian spy establishment. “ I think Richard Fadden is right on the money about agents of influence. I don’t think he’s been tainted by any of this. What was Campbell doing at the Bilderburger conference and not reporting to the tax payers about it? Jack Hooper of CSIS was murdered about then.” John Carten continued.
Carten is not alone. Andrew MacLeod of TheTyee illustrates the British Columbian payments to Maximus. Maximus owns Themis, which is to manage the family maintenance enforcement program in B.C. Collection and enforcement of child support obligations including foster care and placement of children is part of this.
If we follow the money Maximus had contracted with B.C. Then under Premier Gordon Campbell in 2004 to provide medical services among others for $32 million per annum. In 2006 it was $28.8 million, 2007 $33.8 million, 2008 $42.1 million and in 2009 $51.2 million. NDP Health Critic David Cubberley called it ‘Circus Maximus, service Minimus.’ Mr. Cubberley’s views appear as valid as Federal Court Action T-95-08 ability to sit on a desk.
John Carten said he was told by the Law Society of British Columbia that, “I would not be readmitted to the Law Society unless I had a psychiatric examination. My family doctor warned me of how dangerous it was to be singled out. That it was something Stalin’s psychiatrists use to engage in. It’s unheard of to demand a psychiatric evaluation prior to admission to the bar.”
Where are we coming from? The Great Lakes Commission, the Great Lakes Basin Compact, the International Joint Commission, the N.A.W.A.P.A. – North American Water and Power Alliance. Western Canada Water Enterprise Ltd was set up to export water in bulk from British Columbia to thirsty states in the US. Sun Belt Water Inc in California filed a $16 billion dollar lawsuit in 1999 against the Federal and B.C. Government for ruling against Sun Belt perhaps contrary to the NAFTA agreement. NAFTA was at one time being held up as a bad contract by Shelley Ann Clarke. Axiomatica has many details outlining their bulk water export business, law suits and current alternatives with a Santa Barbara desalinization plant.
“Right after the Olympics in Vancouver the UN said there should be a moratorium on projects in the Rocky Mountain Trench.” said John.
The disputed export water is supposed to come from snow fields, glaciers and fresh water tributaries leading to the ocean.
Why would people kill each other over this? Canada has never denied the world its resources and always at the cheapest possible price. We’re deal makers, who would be on the ‘other’ side? What is the other option, war with the US? Why would someone oppose a deal and give their life? What could the US possibly do if its population needed something that was readily available right next door? Would they let the people starve? How can something as simple as ensuring survival for people, for our friends and neighbours, the home of Bob Dylan and so many artists we love, deteriorate into murder and cover-ups? How come people are so confused they can’t work to put something so basic together?
Who would own the Canadian water rights? Who would export it? Who would get the profits? Perhaps today Sun Tsu would write, The Art of Turning on The Tap.
