Body bags and vaccinations...
The Mask Slips, for Those with Eyes to See:
Preparing for the Real Pandemic
by Kevin D. Annett, M.A., M.Div.
Last week, many of the aboriginal people in the remote west coast village of Ahousaht were innoculated with the tamiflu vaccine. Today, over a hundred of them are sick, and the sickness is spreading.
In the same week, body bags were sent to similarly remote native reserves in northern Manitoba that have also received the tamiflu vaccine.
On the face of things, it appears that flu vaccinations are causing a sickness that is being deliberately aimed at aboriginal people across Canada, and this sickness will be fatal: a fact acknowledged by the Canadian government by their "routine" sending of body bags to these Indian villages.
Before you express your shock and denial at the idea that people are being deliberately targeted and killed, remember that murdering Indians with vaccinations is not a new or abnormal thing in Canada. Indeed, it's how we Europeans "won the land", and it's one of the ways we keep it.
In 1862, Anglican church missionaries Rev. John Sheepshanks and Robert Brown inoculated interior Salish Indians in B.C. with a live smallpox virus that wiped out entire native communities within a month, just prior to the settlement of this native land by gold prospectors associated with these missionaries and government officials.
In 1909, Dr. Peter Bryce of the Indian Affairs department in Ottawa claimed that Catholic and Protestant churches were deliberately exposing native children to smallpox and tuberculosis in residential schools across Canada, and letting them die untreated. Thousands of children died as a result. (Globe and Mail, April 24, 2007)
In 1932, B.C. provincial police attempted to lay charges against Catholic missionaries who had sent smallpox-laden Indian children back among their families along the Fraser river near Mission, BC. The RCMP intervened and protected the church, even though whole villages were wiped out as a result of the church's actions.
In 1969, native children who escaped from the Nanaimo Indian Hospital on
Vancouver Island described being inoculated with shots that caused many of them to die "with bloated up bodies and scabs all over", to quote one survivor.
Knowing this history, it's not surprising when Indians on isolated Canadian reserves start sickening and dying en masse from sudden illnesses, after receiving flu shots. After all, it's still the law in Canada, under the apartheid Indian Act, that no on-reserve Indian can refuse medical treatments or experimentation. So it's small wonder that these reserves are the places being targeted first to be injected with untested, unsafe and potentially lethal flu vaccines.
As an entire race of involuntary test subjects, Indians in Canada are a weather vane for what will befall all of us, and very soon. For the very techniques and weapons of genocide perfected against aboriginal people are now being deployed against "mainstream" Canadians.
Under Bill C-6, which is about to pass third reading in Parliament and become the law, no Canadian will be allowed to refuse innoculations for the swine flu, despite the fact that it is relatively benign and mild, and has killed only people who are already immune-compromised. Indeed, it is astounding that such coercion and dictatorial laws are being employed to deal with what the chief Canadian Health Officer has called a "mild seasonal flu".
Clearly, another agenda is at work; but the time to ascertain and challenge that agenda has all but run out. This coming month, forced innoculations and imprisonment of those who refuse them may be a reality across Canada. And for what reason? Clearly, not for public health, considering the sickness and death caused by previous swine flu vaccines.
I believe that the real pandemic is about to be unleashed through the very vaccines being pushed by governments and pharmaceutical giants like Novartis and Glaxo Smith Kline. The shots will be the cause, not the cure, of the pandemic. Of course, those in power can disprove this by simply being the first people to take the swine flu shot: an event about as likely as these companies forgoing the multi-billion dollar profits they will reap from the mass vaccinations.
It's indeed ironic that, very soon, many "white" Canadians may be suffering the same fate that aboriginal people have for centuries. Perhaps it's fitting. For if we are indeed being targeted for extermination, or at the least martial law and dictatorship, we finally can have the chance to shed our complicity in the genocide of other people, and get on the right side of humanity - simply by having to fight the system that is causing mass murder.

New World Order
The mainstream (bankers) media has not shown the people what is really going on this weekend in Pittsburgh, PA The alternative media and the real people are there to show us what the new world order really looks like. Check out some of these videos:
Coming to a street near you?
The black uniformed, military looking police are probably UN controlled and are so dumbed down they do not see it, yet. They are drinking fluoridated water and getting their shots as well so maybe when they start dying of 3 letter diseases that keep popping up, or have to administer psycho-tropic drugs to their children they will say no to the new world order. We are all one, colour is an illusion, so remember the oneness. When our brothers and sisters in the police and military remember the oneness, the bankers “divide and conquer” tactic will be nullified and the true criminal “masters of war” will be cast down from whence they came, for eternity.
December 21, 2012 is the day our second sun will come above the ecliptic plane and will be viewable by everyone on earth. The Mayan called this the 5th sun, meaning it is the 5th time our binary twin has been here since we have been here. The paradigm shift is already happening, the pole shift will follow. The serpents reign is coming to an end. With their end, will come the end of the war problem. The era of Peace on Earth is arriving soon. It is a great time to be alive.
The N.W.O. crowd always travels around with heavy police and military “bodyguards” and re-write the rules wherever they go. When we study their role historically, no man or woman on earth will give them shelter. They will be easy to spot, when the new “Nuremburg” genocide trials begin.
We are defeating this mind control and they are failing.
With unity, comes strength. With the power comes the peace.

You me and the SPP...
Well this is it, I’m hitting the road with my film about the Security and Prosperity Partnership ‘You, Me and the SPP: Trading Democracy for Corporate Rule’ with a tour launch on Parliament Hill on October 1st. I’ll be visiting 32 cities between Saint John’s Newfoundland and Victoria BC and every screening with the exception of Fifth Avenue Cinema in Vancouver is either free or by donation. A special thanks goes out to all the tour sponsors and hosts for making this a reality.
You can see all the tour dates at http://www.youmespp.com/screenings/ each screening date has downloadable posters, handbills and press releases that you can use to help promote the screening in you local community. Please pass this information along to your friends across Canada. If you’re in Ottawa on October 1st please try to attend the tour launch on Parliament Hill. If you live elsewhere you can watch the launch live on rabble.ca at http://rabble.ca/rabbletv/youmeandthespp and then attend a local screening when the tour comes to your town.
You might be asking why I would bother to go to the trouble of traveling across the country in the age of the Internet, global warming (and perhaps a flu pandemic). Watching videos on youtube and reading emails can be informative but it leads to a sense of isolation. Community is about coming together, discussing issues face to face and working on solutions to overcome them. I have asked the hosts of the screenings across the country to invite local organizations to attend the screenings, bring information, petitions, sign up sheets and to speak at the Q & A’s after the screening about how the corporate SPP agenda is manifesting itself locally and what people can do to oppose it.
In my last email I called this a National SPP Victory Tour. While the US government has pronounced that the SPP is no longer an active initiative, this victory will not be complete unless we capitalize on this momentum, take the initiative and push for a people’s agenda. The architects in the organization that spawned the SPP, the Canadian Council of Chief Executives (CCCE) are not going to give up and slink back to their executive suites in their corporate towers and sulk.
The CCCE brings together the CEO’s of 150 of Canada’s most powerful business empires, representing $4.5 trillion in assets and more than $850 billion in annual revenues (three times the national budget). The CCCE and its predecessor the Business Council on National Issues (BCNI) are the most powerful and successful special interest, lobby group in Canadian history. They have been pushing their agenda forward for 30 years and they are not going to let a little setback with the SPP slow them down. They will continue to push the Canadian government to regulate and legislate in their favour, to increase their profit margins at the expense of workers, consumers and the environment. Why? So corporate CEO’s can earn tens of millions in bonuses while we all watch our standard of living drop – enough is enough!
A great deal of the SPP agenda has already been implemented or is still moving forward. What about all of the security measures brought in as part of this agenda? I haven’t seen any announcements about rolling back the deeper integration of the Canadian and US military so I would assume that the Feb. 2008 agreement to allow troops from each neighbouring country to cross the border in cases of pandemic, civil unrest or natural disaster still holds. How about the open sharing of data on citizens by the RCMP and CSIS with their counterparts in the USA? Has Canada dropped the no-fly-list and other adopted aspects of the US Patriot Act?
The deep integration of the North American energy system is also moving ahead. Whether it’s run of the river for hydro exports from BC, new hydro projects in Manitoba, proposed nuclear power plants to power the tar sands in Saskatchewan, the export of raw bitumen from the tar sands directly to the USA, the construction of liquid natural gas storage tanks on the Pacific and Atlantic coast or the fact that almost all of the oil and gas pipelines flow south rather than across Canada, the energy integration agenda is about US energy security not Canadian energy security. This aspect of the SPP has not changed either.
The North American Super Corridor Coalition (NASCO) just held their fifth annual conference in Quebec in June. This coincided with a summit of premiers and state governors about strengthening North American cooperation. Check these websites http://www.mri.gouv.qc.ca/en/_scripts/Actualites/ViewNew.asp?NewID=6647&lang=en and http://www.nascoquebec2009.com/eng/index.html It may not be the interplanetary super corridor that Stephen Harper was musing about but NASCO’s plans look like a NAFTA super corridor to me.
It’s time for the citizens of this country to organize, push back and demand a society that is fair and equitable for all. That is why I am going on tour. To help spread information but also to share ideas and solutions, so we can get together and talk about what needs to be done instead of sitting at home, wringing our hands and worrying. We are the people. It’s our country and our democracy. Canada does not belong to a small group of elite businessmen and political leaders. We have the power we just need to start exercising it.
Please help to spread the word. I hope to see you on tour.

Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq still stumped over body bags sent to reserves
Cause Announcement from First Nations & Aboriginal Rights
WINNIPEG — It's been over a week but Canada's health minister said she still doesn't know why dozens of body bags were sent to some Manitoba reserves in preparation for flu season.
Leona Aglukkaq met with aboriginal leaders in Winnipeg Thursday to repair some of the damage done by the shipment of body bags which aboriginal leaders called insulting and horrifying.
Chiefs had called for a personal apology from Aglukkaq, as well as the resignation of senior bureaucrats responsible. While Aglukkaq vowed to get to the bottom of it a week ago, she didn't offer an apology Thursday or an explanation.
"It is deeply regrettable," she said following a meeting with Grand Chief Ron Evans of the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs.
"I need to evaluate what happened, whether this is an isolated case or whether it's a case that happened across the country. It's important for me to ensure that I have all the facts."
Health Canada shipped dozens of body bags to remote reserves in northeastern Manitoba last week, along with hand sanitizer and other medical supplies. The reserves that received the shipments were those hardest hit by swine flu in the spring.
Many interpreted the bags as a grim prediction from Ottawa that many in those same communities would not survive the second wave of H1N1.
Although Health Canada bureaucrats say the body bags were simply part of a normal restocking process and not connected to swine flu, Aglukkaq said her staff is still investigating.
When the investigation is complete, she said the report will be shared with aboriginal leaders.
That explanation seemed to satisfy some chiefs who had been furious the week before. Grand Chief David Harper, who represents northern First Nation communities, said he's prepared to wait for a full investigation.
"It's still under inquiry so we'll be getting some information as soon as the inquiry is done," he said following a late afternoon meeting with Aglukkaq. "We're pretty satisfied with that."
The national scrutiny and political pressure brought on by the shipment of body bags seems to have had a positive effect, Harper said. Health Canada is finally taking their concerns seriously and is helping communities prepare for the second coming of swine flu, he added.
Last weekend, the government outlined a plan for regular meetings between the Assembly of First Nations and government staff.
Some Manitoba chiefs are meeting again with Aglukkaq and other ministers next week in Ottawa to talk more about flu preparedness.
"Things are moving forward," Harper said. "There is another wave that's on its way. It's possibly here now so we have to deal with this issue as soon as possible."
Evans said they will wait patiently for the report into why body bags were sent to some reserves. In the meantime, he said communication between First Nations and Health Canada has improved.
"I feel we are being listened to now," he said. "We've come a long way . . . It's a matter of now ensuring that the things we talk about at the table are indeed followed through."
