I have only been back in
There I went again, the first sentence was supposed to lead to my absolute flabbergastification over what can only be called the hijacking of a country. The following article has not been blasted all over the MSM (guess why?) and all the people in the country are not up in arms, what the hell is going on? Bettsy Snooks in Grovelling Cove East is taking up an hour on the talk show about how Danny Williams hasn't paved her driveway while the Danes stick their flag on northern Canadian soil and we haven’t got a single vessel capable of going down there and pulling the damn thing out and is seems nobody south of Ellesmere Island gives a rats ass.
I did it again. Here’s the story and it makes me want to throw up:

When it comes to global influence,
Both Prime Minister Paul Martin and his mentor Maurice Strong, senior advisor to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, worked for Power Corp.
Martin’s immediate predecessor is former Prime Minister Jean Chretien, whose daughter, France is married to Andre Desmarais, son of Power Corp’s founding father, Paul Desmarais.
Desmarais Sr. is a major shareholder and director of TotalFinaElf, the biggest oil corporation in
As Canada Free Press (CFP) revealed last week, Paul Volcker, who heads up the Independent Inquiry Commission into the oil-for-food scandal, held a seat on Power Corp’s international advisory board.
Those are some of the ties of Power Corp., oil-for-food and Fracophonie’s Land of the fleur de lis.
Power Corp. now maintains controlling interest in
In February 2001, Groupe Bruxelles Lambert, one of Belgium’s top 10 companies and 25 percent owned by Power Corp., acquired control of BertelsmannAG. Andre Desmarais, President and Chief Executive Officer of Power Corp., was named to the BAG board.
As it turns out, the publishing company controlled by
Bertelsmann published the nefarious, The Christmas Book for Hitler Youth.
The publishing empire which employs some 80,000 workers in 51 countries, posted an overall cash flow of $18.3-billion in 2002.
Originally run by the Heinrich Mohn family, the company donated money to the SS and to various ecology Save-the-Earth factions of the Nazi movement.
Continuing to join the dots on Volcker and potential conflicts of interest is Volcker’s number two man on the IIC, Reid Morden. Morden has connections to Desmarais in his role of selling nuclear plants to
Although he is
As CFP letter writer Peter Herberg puts it, "Can you imagine the uproar if a former CIA chief did this and took part in a UN investigation that refused to cooperate with congress?"
From all reports, Prime Minister Paul Martin has no problems with Morden’s arm’s length relationship with the Canadian government. But then again Martin’s senior adviser is Annan pointman, Maurice Strong.
When you add it all up, contemporary Canadian influence abroad has all the intrigue of a fast-moving spy novel.
Andre Desmarais also sits on the China International Trust & Investment Corp (CITIC), described as the alleged investment arm of the PLA, the Chinese military.
Through its subsidiaries, the CITIC could be the largest manufacturer of weapons and arms in the world.
Maurice Strong, special ambassador to the UN, has publicly stated publicly his belief that
Li Ka-Shing, the owner of the Hong Kong-based Huthinson-Whampoa that now runs the Panama Canal Ports, is currently buying Husky Oil of Canada and plans on buying Canadian mining giant Noranda.

No mater (sic) how peaceful or good natured is the elephant, we feel ever single twitch and movement…And God help us if he should ever roll over in his sleep!"
Meanwhile, it’s not rolling over in his sleep that
