Ontario Mayors are now “salesmen” for OUR lands and resources???????
The “end-game” appears to be on track for Ontario’s Rural communities that have been virtually ruined by successive Provincial Governments with their Agenda 21, Sustainable Development attack on municipalities across Ontario. De-value properties, make them virtually unliveable with Green Wind projects, raise cost of living beyond ability to pay and when that is completed put up a huge “FOR SALE” sign on it for a foreign country to bid on it!
Here’s the formal plan for “Immigrant Placement” within South Western Ontario“ where the lands have been laid “fallow” by these Government policies!
Here is a “snippet” from the above document that shows clearly how the Government views a true Canadian: “
“Clearly, a Chinese immigrant possesses an advantage here over the typical Canadian.”
Is there any reason that 7 Mayors of Ontario’s Rural Towns have been “invited” to go on an “Investment” tour in China for ten days when thousands of Private Sector Companies have gone this way for years at their own expense for their own markets?
It seems to have started back in October at the Canada China Business Council in Markham where 13 Ontario Mayors attended a sales pitch by Chinese reps to lure them to China for negotiations over LAND available in Canada………………………. for WHAT?
Remember that these people are OUR elected representatives supposedly elected to represent our needs as citizens of each particular Municipality,NOT the interests of a foreign Government!
Agenda 21 (Sustainable Development is not a very well liked word within Municipal Offices these days. As the public becomes more informed of what has been going on behind their backs inside Municipal politics and that is the de-population of Rural Ontario which is Agenda 21′s main purpose, Councillors become more agitated and nervous when confronted by informed citizens.
Just try it. Call your Municipal office and ask them if they are following Agenda 21′s local Government initiatives. You will be met with denial and when pushed, a rather aggressive “hang up”! If you get to this point then ask the Council about this little nugget of “Sustainable Development” that every Council in Ontario should have on it’s book shelves: FCM’s Green Municipal Fund.*
Here’s a “snippet” of this document which clearly shows that Municipal Councils promote and adhere to Agenda 21 proposals in case your Councillor claims “he doesn’t know what your talking about!”
*Examples of SCPs: (Sustainable Community Plans)
• integrated community sustainability plans
• long-range sustainability plans
• Local Agenda 21 plans
• local action plans (for example, greenhouse
gas reduction plans)
That publication will lay out the United Nations engineered plans for virtually all loss of control over YOUR lands and resources for the “better good”!
How “entrenched” in Canada at all levels of Government and Business is Agenda 21 and it’s tenticles that are literally aimed at redefining our quality of life, our future and our present day Rights and Freedoms that have been guaranteed by our forefathers who actually laid down their lives to ensure a Free and Democratic Canada?
Well, here is just one “think tank” all dressed up to represent large business and Education centres in order provide Global Governance guidelines for less than “enlightened” politicians.
Spend some time on this little gathering and notice some “players” like RIM Canada and University of Waterloo who have millions of $$$ invested in setting up a policy panel which in turn advises Political leaders on how to manipulate the lands and resources that WE live on for investing in foreign countries.
For a foreign Government to literally pay the way for an elected official to attend any type of negotiations regarding OUR sovereign lands could actually be perceived as bordering on treason.
Seven Lower Mainland mayors who went on a privately funded trip to China last month believed — as did most of their councillors — that they could accept the trip because it was being paid for by someone who was never going to do business in their municipalities or in Canada.
But municipal experts and some critics say the new Community Charter legislation makes it clear that council members should not accept any gift from anyone, doing business or not, that is coming to them because of their positions.

That’s the key message from the sales pitches of 13 Ontario mayors who met in Markham Tuesday to discuss that country’s economic impact during what was billed the Mayors’ Forum on China.
Even if you don’t like what you see, working up an appetite for China is better than saying you are not interested, Canada China Business Council executive director Sarah Kutulakos said.
“Even if you don’t want to do business with China, you need to have a China strategy,” she said. “It’s in your value chain, even if you pro-actively try not to do business with China.”
Six York municipalities had representatives at the forum, including Georgina Mayor Robert Grossi, Aurora Mayor Geoffrey Dawe, Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti, Richmond Hill Mayor Dave Barrow, Vaughan Councillor Sandra Yeung Racco and Whitchurch-Stouffville Mayor Wayne Emmerson.
Vaughan Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua was in Italy on a trade mission.
Mayor Scarpitti couldn’t stay for the panel discussion and was represented by Councillor Carolina Moretti.
Other mayors in attendance included those from Barrie, Chatham-Kent, London, Niagara Falls, Parry Sound, Pickering and Waterloo.
Developable greenfield, the largest vacant employment lands in the GTA, a future downtown at Jane Street and Hwy. 7, York University and its location as an economic gateway are some of the attributes Vaughan has to attract Chinese investments, Ms Yeung Racco said.
Now here is the announcement
By Barb McKay
Kincardine mayor Larry Kraemer will travel to China in May to discuss trade opportunities.
He is one of a handful of Ontario mayors invited on the 10-day trade mission by the Canada China Investment Association. Others invited include mayors from Erin, Belleville, Petrolia and Niagara-on-the-Lake. The group leaves May 15 and will spend time in Shanghai and Beijing before returning home on May 25.
“They were very clear that they are looking for trade opportunities – bilateral trade – and they are looking at Ontario,” Kraemer said when he told Kincardine council about the trip during its meeting last Wednesday.
Costs associated with the trip, minus airfare, are being covered by the China Canada Investment Association. Bruce County council has agreed to allow Kraemer to use money from his conference fund to cover the cost of airfare.
Councillor Ron Coristine said the trade mission should involve individuals who are entrenched in Kincardine’s economic development planning. Kraemer said he had made his involvement with the trade mission known to the Penetangore Regional Economic Development Corporation (PREDC), but said he was lucky just to be invited on the trip.
This “tour” is scheduled for “lift-off” on May 15th until May 25th and will be attended by the following Mayors:
Mayor Dave Eke, from Niagara-On-The-Lake
Mayor Lou Maieron, from Erin
Mayor Larry Kraemer, from Kincardine
Mayor John McCharles, from Petrolia
Mayor Neil Ellis, from Belleville
Mayor Brenda Halloran, from Waterloo
Mayor Steve Pellegrini, from King
Mayor Brian McMullan, from St.Catharines
Their flights will be paid for by the Ontario tax payers while all other expenses are supposed to be picked up by the China Canada Investment Association (CCIA).
When one researches CCIA which is located in Markham, Ontario, one finds that their phone number is exactly the same as the Phoenix International Inc. at the same address as the CCIA. Can we assume that the CCIA is a “front” for Pheonix or the China Canada Business Council?
Phoenix International’s website supplies us with some information on what they actually do and it appears it is used primarily to arrange loans and appears it is mostly involved in REAL ESTATE financing. The financing business of Phoenix is called Kunpeng International Finance Corp. and the following description off their website may give you an “inkling” as to what their main purpose their business includes.
“Kunpeng International Finance Corporation, incorporated in Canada in 2004. The company’s main business range include: one, apply for home mortgage loans, commercial loans, business loans, construction loans and land development loans, line of credit 200,000 plus currency (RMB 120 million) to 2 million plus currency (RMB 20 million) between.”
This last organization mentioned, the China Canada Business Council, contains some fairly “heavy lifters” in politics, the likes of Stockwell Day, David Dingwall and the Desmarais of Power Corp (more on that later in this article), so one can expect this organization has some strong Canadian Government influence!
So which company is financing the Mayor’s trip to China? At this point there seems to be several “names” in play, but then “confusion”just makes things more difficult for someone who is curious about what’s really going with their land, homes and Democracy!!!
In the Private Sector this whole story would be a regular and normal day to day announcement that wouldn’t warrant a second glance, but as these individuals are ELECTED OFFICIALS by the people, paid for by the people, they are considered Public Property and everything they do or say is supposed to PUBLIC knowledge! BY LAW!
Unlike other countries who’s Governments are not Democratically elected and their Government can literally dictate it’s behaviour, Canada has yet to be reduced to that level of State rule oligarchy!
One reason these Mayors may be so willing to get on the “China Bandwagon”or as we call it here, “Sustainable Development” is that the dream of a city of the future may look like this one?
China’s Ghost Cities

Despite the many differences between China and the U.S., their basic problems are remarkably similiar: an economy that increasingly serves a tiny Elite, and a political/financial system that is incapable of meaningful reform.
Pettis said the Chinese government is pushing a “go west” campaign.
What Canadian Corporation would be have an interest within all these meetings of the various organizations from China and could be the “guiding force” in establishing a Chinese-Canadian connection?
On the Canada China Business Association website at the bottom left you will see in a large window that “this website is sponsored by “Power Corporation”
Now here is a short description of what Power Corp’s influences have on Canadian Politics:
First, I will introduce the reader to Canada’s most powerful family, our version of the Rockefeller’s south of the border, or the Rothschilds in Europe, and of course, all these families are close in both business and social circles. Such is the nature of being an elite in a globalized world.
The Desmarais family, located in the province of Québec, are without question the most influential and powerful family in the country, and it’s no wonder, considering their power is vested in an investment company known as Power Corporation.
Why is Power Corporation important?
The name says it all: it has Power. Founded in 1925, Power Corporation of Canada is an investment company involved in communications, business, and especially finance.
Power Corporation was founded by A.J. Nesbitt and P.A. Thomson, two partners in the Montreal investment firm, Nesbitt, Thomson and Company, who wanted to consolidate Canada’s power sector, and established Power Corporation as a ‘holding company,’ meaning, it owns other corporations.
In the 1960s, the company began to invest in energy, finance, industry, and real estate.
In 1968, financier Paul Desmarais took over the leadership of Power Corporation, and rapidly expanded the assets held by the company, including by the 1970s: Canada Steamship Lines (transportation); Consolidated Bathurst (pulp and paper); Investors Group, Great-West Life, Montreal Trust (financial services); and Gesca (communications). Power Corporation expanded across Canada, Europe, and into China. Paul Desmarais stepped aside as Chairman and CEO in 1996, though remaining as the controlling shareholder, and had his two sons, Paul Jr. and André, become Chairman and President and Co-CEOs. Power Corporation owns Gesca, a communications company which in turn owns La Presse as well as six other daily newspapers in Quebec.
……………………………..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 China is the economic and ecological future of the world, a sentiment echoed only last week by Prime Minister Martin………………………………………………….
……..And on the Human Rights Issues!
(May 7, 2013) Two new documentaries released this month reveal more horrifying details aboutChina’s notorious re-education through labor (RTL) system. Other recent exposés of systemic human rights abuses in the RTL have led to calls to scrap the long-contested practice entirely. China’s new leadership is reportedly reviewing it.
By Lisa Peryman for Voices from China, Probe International
Dating back to the 1950s, China’s RTL system was originally, and devilishly, designed to “reform” intellectuals critical of Communist rule. Made up of officials, democratic activists, journalists, teachers, scholars, economists, lawyers, students, artists and writers, the country’s intellectuals had, at the time, been freely encouraged by Mao Zedong to vent their pent-up criticism of the state, as part of his brief Hundred Flowers Movement to liberate freedom of thought and speech. But the invitation quickly revealed itself to be a trap. Exposed and flushed out by Mao, outspoken intellectuals were soon rounded up and imprisoned in RTL “re-education”camps; a model of punishment considered useful to the state for its returns in thought reform and economic gain, based on the Soviet Gulag.
Before long, these camps would be utilized, not only as a source of slave labour, but to contain other so-called “bad elements,” usually without trial for up to three to four years, including children.
The latter is the subject of “Juvenile Laborers Confined in Dabao” by Xie Yihui. Xie gained her entry into documentary film-making assisting Ai Xiaoming, a human rights activist and academic-turned-director, with Ai’s film investigation into the “tofu-dreg”construction of schools that collapsed and killed at least 5,000 students during a 2008 earthquake in Sichuan Province. Xie borrowed equipment to continue film-making in and around Sichuan. The setting of “Juvenile Laborers Confined in Dabao” is a children’s labor camp located in Dabao Township, in Sichuan’s Ebian County where 4,000-5,000 boys and girls were interned in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
In this review, Ai encapsulates the journey of Xie’s camera as she tracks Zeng Boyan, a former Sichuan Daily reporter, and his work to uncover the grim legacy of the Dabao facility through the recollections of survivors who passed through there.
By tracing the investigator’s footsteps, we see how this tragedy began. In the 1950s, several thousand children were interned here as the result of China’s adopting the Soviet Union’s practice of reforming wayward children. These children—ages ten to 17—were incarcerated for various reasons, but most weren’t criminals. Many committed small trespasses, were the products of parental neglect, or their parents believed that RTL would provide an opportunity for their children to learn how to work. Others were there because public security organs needed to fill quotas for catching criminals. These children were subjected to inhuman persecution at the Dabao camp, and many died there without anyone knowing.
The horrors we know about the RTL system mostly come from the experiences of adults. But this film reveals the origins of this system. It was established by the State Council during the height of the Anti-Rightist rectification campaign in 1957, when many politically-labeled Rightists were sent to RTL camps. But the scope was expanded to include other so-called bad elements. The RTL system that targeted minors was characterized particularly by confusion and illegality because it blurred the distinction between crime and non-crime. It seems that in an effort to reeducate neglected children, it also obscured the line between welfare and punishment. But from the recollections of those involved, the system, from its inception, emphasized crime and punishment. Even when children were on the verge of starving to death and their parents begged to have them released, they were unable to get their children back because the authorities said they were criminals and had not been sufficiently reformed.
LATEST UPDATE ON CHINA”S CYBER SECURITY ACCUSATIONS
Matthew Braga 13/05/09
Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. has been blocked from bidding on government contracts in Canada and Australia amid accusations the telecommunications equipment manufacturer enables Chinese cyber-spying, and now the Shenzhen-based company’s reclusive founder and chief executive officer Ren Zhengfei has finally spoken out to combat mounting fear, pressure and public speculation of strong ties to the Chinese government.
It’s a first for Mr. Zhengfei, who has historically shunned media interviews – a practice he’s maintained since the founding of Huawei 26 years ago.Richard Fadden, director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, has raised concerns about foreign influence over Canadian politicians. (Chris Wattie/Reuters)Members of Vancouver’s Chinese community are angry about controversial comments made by the head of Canada’s spy agency, but a former Asia expert for CSIS says the comments are true.Earlier this week, CSIS director Richard Fadden told CBC News some municipal officials and cabinet ministers from two unnamed provinces, are being influenced by foreign governments.
Fadden then hinted China was one of the countries wielding influence. He also said some municipal officials in B.C. are among those being influenced by foreign governments.
Former Vancouver city councillor Tung Chan says he’s saddened and frustrated by Fadden’s comments. Chan is the head of SUCCESS, an immigrant services organization with strong links to Vancouver’s Chinese community.
“The remarks that were made cast shadows and cast doubts on the loyalty of a whole group of people, particularly those committed to serve the public, and it’s not helpful to what we’re trying to do in creating multicultural harmony,” said Chan.
Espionage expert backs claim
Fadden made the comments during an interview with the CBC on Tuesday. He later downplayed the remarks, saying CSIS has been investigating and reporting on such threats for many years.
That position is backed up by Michel Juneau-Katsuya, a former head of Asia Pacific Affairs for CSIS in the 1990s, who is now the president of the Northgate Group, a private firm specializing in corporate security intelligence………..

Richard Fadden, the head of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, is moving to become deputy minister of Defence.
The Prime Minister’s Office says Fadden’s transfer takes effect May 13.
Michel Coulombe, currently deputy director of operations at the spy agency, will become interim director when Fadden leaves.
Fadden has been head of CSIS since June 2009.
Actions such as what is being described here have actually caused wars to break out in the past! Countries do not take “loss of their sovereignty” very lightly. The past two World Wars should have told you!
One way to meet this “push for Global Control” head-on, is to TAKE BACK control of your own Municipality. Without a Municipality condoning this underhanded and “back door sell-out of your Lands and Rights”, none of this vile depletion of Canadian values would have gone this far!
Remember YOUR COUNCIL is responsible for it’s actions to YOU, the tax payer and electorate, not the other way around!!!!
