Letter to Canadian MPs by Bill Woollam re Libya

I have been in contact with Bill Woollam for months on this subject and he and I are of the same opinion. With his permission I post this from him.
Thank you Bill,

Attention Members of Parliament:

I wrote to my Member of Parliament regarding the NATO war crimes against Libya. ie: Supporting ‘outright regime change’, ‘privatizing’ the Libyan oil fields, ‘privatizing’ the former Libyan national banking system, along with bombing raids which are hitting Libyan hospitals, schools, civilian targets and most recently the Libyan water supply system and water pipeline factory.

I have done my research on this topic from day one. Thousands have read my published findings on the net.
It is titled “The Battle For Libyan Oil Fields”

My first question to any ”thinking” member of Parliament is:
“Would not the American Administration use its military force to quell an armed, US domestic revolt?”
“Would not the Canadian military be sent in to quell an armed Canadian domestic revolt within Canada’s borders?”

So why in heaven’s name would NATO forces interfere with Gadhaffi’s decision to quell an armed revolt within his own country?

Why? Could it be that news reports fail to mention the real motives behind NATO’s interference and aggression?

My member of Parliament had the gall to imply that Canada’s role in the obvious ‘war for regime change’ was as follows:

“1) Make clear that the goal of the UN-mandated mission was to protect civilians.

2) Secure an increase to Canada’s support for humanitarian assistance.

3 Strengthen our diplomatic role with the acknowledgment that only a Libyan-led political transition will end this conflict.

4) Ensure improved oversight of Canada’s involvement, including parliamentary committee meetings and better information sharing.”

When one does the research, one quickly discovers that specific British, American and European oil cartel interests have been instigating a takeover of the Libyan national oil fields for over 30 years. Those who pull the strings of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund have pushed for the replacement of the ‘nationalized Libyan banking system’ with a ‘private-for-IMF-profit” system. And specific weapons manufacturing cartels have also been behind the Libya regime change. See the connections here:
A variety of other excuses have been used to take the West into these
illegal Middle East wars where the ‘power-elite’ who pull the strings of NATO member nations can carry out their agenda of control and domination of Eurasia.

NATO member nations’ military capabilities are being used as a ‘corporate’ police force to enforce the will of specific international corporateers.
I suggest taking two minutes and watching this short video clip narrated by John Perkins (former economic hit-man for the IMF) which explains the entire sinister process.

The salient points of international concern spoken of by Courtenay Barnett (writer for ‘counterpunch’ http://www.counterpunch.org/2011/09/19/libya-whither-international-law/ ) are:

” 1. Is the world to see the upholding of the principles of the United Nations Charter for the promotion of peace in the world and settlement of international disputes by peaceful means; is Article 2 of the UN Charter to remain the basis on which nations can, under international law, lawfully go to war, or by reference to Article 51 (self-defence) as a legitimate basis to engage in belligerent international action?

2. Does the concept of sovereignty have applicability in the international community, and more particularly has the concept been respected in the case of Libya?

3. Did either UN Resolutions 1970 or 1973 permit the NATO nations lawfully to bomb Libya, and to arm and support a faction in Libya to obtain regime change?

4. Will the actions of the US and the European branch of NATO use Libya as an international precedent for incursions into any resource rich country, or rely on the casus belli of “humanitarianism” as a basis to oppose militarily any nation that deigns to advance any truly independent national polices, not in accordance with NATO’s wishes?

The answers to these types of questions will yield one of two results:-

1. A world that is committed to peace and respect for the rule of international law; or

2. A world of unending and perpetual warfare where covert support for uprisings deemed to be in the interest of the US/NATO will increase with concomitant global instability on a massive scale for most of humankind as covert militarism becomes manifestly more blatant, outrageously illegal and overt.”

What do I think about Gordon Campbell and the Order of BC.

It was suggested to me the other day that I should write about my feelings on Campbell being awarded the Order of BC, and one person even suggested he should put my name forward because although I am not well known in BC generally, I have done some work locally to benefit the province and have been a voice for improvement of the environment and treatment of the people by the various levels of government.

Whilst that is true in a limited way, I do not feel that I merit the award.

Yet in thinking about it I find myself in two minds .

One mind says:
a) I do not have a criminal record,
b) I have not cheated on my wife, (I don’t have one right now and I didn’t when I did), and I didn’t have a child out of wedlock by my mistress of many years (is that real rumour or real fact?)
c) I did not destroy the economy of a province,
d) I haven’t attempted to break the unions of the province,
e) I haven’t attempted to destroy BC Hydro by selling it or dismantling their financial position, and the intense promotion of IPPs to supply unneeded electricity to BC Hydro at over inflated prices,
f) I haven’t allowed the destruction of our natural salmon stocks by encouraging toxic fish farms, owned by foreigners who don’t give a damn, in our local ocean inlets on wild salmon migration routes,
g) I didn’t come up with a “green plan” which specifically wants to drill for oil and gas between the mainland and Vancouver Island as well as off shore, right on the San Andreas fault line yet!
h) I didn’t effectively raise the taxes of the poor and lower the taxes of the rich and corporations under false pretenses,
j) I haven’t taken BC so far into deficit that it will be years before we can recover,
k) I didn’t increase homelessness and child poverty in BC to where we are the worst in Canada and maybe North America,
l) I haven’t lied to the First Nations people in BC over and over again,
m) I have not confused my position with that of a god, dictator or maybe king of BC.

I am sure there are many more I have missed like TILMA, BC Rail, HST, photo ops at the Olympics (sooo far above budget) BC Place and the convention center, but in short I have not spent 10 years leaving a legacy of deliberate destruction behind me.

So obviously I haven’t earned the right to the Order of BC.

But then in that other mind, I ask the question:
why not the Order of BC?
why not for every person who works an honest 8-12 or 16  hour day trying to survive and raise a family;
why not for every mother, grandmother or aunt for that matter who spends her life raising children 24 hours a day, in the hopes that they will do better than she.
why not all the volunteers who make up for the shortcomings of an over stretched government due to indifference to the people’s needs;
why not for those who sleep outside every night because they have nowhere to go and are just surviving;
why not to the police and emergency men and women who are always on call.

All these people deserve the order of BC, and yet almost every one of them, myself included, would now say “no thank you” because the Order of BC has been totally tainted by a man who deserves only to be remembered as the most destructive, arrogant, hypocritical and criminal premier of BC in all time, and who is awarded the Order even though he is not eligible from the time factor and he flat out does not deserve it.

Now I have to correct myself here, as he was nominated on the 10th March before he quit being an MLA and nominations closed which is legal, and he is to be awarded the order after he left office so that makes it OK! It is the awarding not the nomination that count; and I am sure that his new job of selling out Canada in the UK is by appointment of King Stephen, definetly not by election, so he “legally” can be awarded the thing, which makes it even more damning that there was so much skullduggery involved even in this. 

The Honourable Lance S. G. Finch, Chief Justice of British Columbia and chair of the independent Order of B.C. Advisory Council had to issue a statement stating everything was according to the law, such was the outrage at this award.

 Is it possible for anything to do with Gordon Campbell to be open, transparent  and above board?

So to those who asked what I thought, there you are.

Smart Meters and Canadian Cancer Society

When it comes to the BC Hydro Smart Meters both Health Canada and The Canadian Cancer Foundation are asleep at the wheel again, or still depending on which way you look at it.

31 years ago a young man started on his Marathon of Hope because he understood that more funds and public awareness were needed to find any cures for a disease he had – cancer.
Although the cancer research projects have been overfunded by public donations since the early 1960’s there was no real money being spent on this research from any level of government, and of course pharmaceutical companies did not and still do not want a cure. My mother died as a result of cancer in 1965 and my brother did some research and as a result we refused to ask for donations for the cancer research as there was already more donated money then than could be spent in 20 years !

Now all these years later I would be willing to bet that no one actually knows how much money has been raised around the world in the name of that young man, Terry Fox, and even more appalling just where it has been spent.

Offshoots of this money raising effort have grown from our own Cops “Tour de Rock” here on Vancouver Island, to “Bike for the cure” from Vancouver to Seattle, to the international three day walk “to end breast cancer” events, and even at one time “do it for Dad”; along with numerous firefighters, teachers, students and unionist efforts.
All very laudable, and I feel tears when my grandsons walk and collect for THE RUN and I will always support them.


There is still no cure available to normal people for cancer.

The pharmaceutical companies almost certainly know how to do their bit to end the disease, but why would they wish to stop the flow of money from coming their way? Deaths of people such as Jack Layton will boost the donations enormously and are very desirable from their point of view.

The Canadian Cancer Society would go out of business, as would the various provincial Breast Cancer Foundations, and we could never have that now could we? Well yes, we the people could very easily have that, but not the corporate bottom liners as the sources of free money for all drug development would dry up and they would have to spend their own money to develop things like Viagra or Cialis.

We are being bombarded with carcinogens every day, and Health Canada is indifferent, being more interested in cadmium in jewelry (which the Health Minister still will not recall because the regulations are not yet imported from overseas corporations telling her to do this through her new Consumer Product Safety Act.! Press conference 25th July 2011) and with shutting down natural foods outlets. These outlets are a natural way to help prevent disease, therefore must be closed down, to the benefit of increased drugs and vaccinations.

Here in BC, as with Ontario and who knows where else, these so called hydro smart meters are being forced onto our homes in spite of the newest report from WHO about the possibility of cancer resulting from their proximity to people. For Health Canada and the federal and provincial politicians and the B C Provincial Medical Officer this means nothing. The contracts have been signed, the kickbacks have been paid and it’s a done deal and to hell with the health of Canadians.

There is also the fact of the mercury in the switches in these meters:

According to Itron’s manual each smart meter contains a cylinder switch with mercury. The Head of Environment Canada’s Mercury Section estimated that the amount of mercury in this switch to be at least 1000 mg. This compares to 3-5mg. in a CFL light bulb. Milt Bowling in Health Action Network quotes US Sen. Mike Enzi as reporting that the mercury from one CFL bulb is enough to contaminate 6000 gallons of water beyond safe drinking levels set by the US Environmental Protection Agency.

Where is the voice of the Canadian Cancer Foundation on this?
Absent because they are still glowing in their victory in getting 18 year olds banned from tanning beds in the CRD of Victoria BC ! Watch out Canada this ban may be coming your way too, whilst the smart meters will be accepted as safe without any shadow of doubt for any age.

Smart meters can be wired and do not have to be wireless radio stations, and what is wrong with only placing them when the old meters have to be replaced instead of filling the landfills with still functioning meters?
What is wrong with B C Hydro spending only a few million (instead of billions) on establishing a factory, or factories, to make a new mechanical style, wired, mercury free meter and selling them to the rest of the world who wish to remain cancer free? That would more than pay for the cost of meter readers and line men working overtime in the winter as well as giving much needed employment to BC.

That’s just too simple, even for people like, Christy Clark, Rich Coleman, commentators such as Vaughan Palmer or Tom Fletcher who make their living commenting on a legislature that usually only sits for 14 days or so a year under this Liberal regime, or even the Federal Minster responsible for health, because she hasn’t been told what to do.

At one time in our past, BC Hydro would have already have that factory up and running, but this Liberal government is not interested in home grown industry, and employment for the people of BC; they are only concerned with the interests of foreign corporations and the future directorships coming from them. The health and welfare of the BC people is of no interest even though the new premier did say that families were to be her top priority – that didn’t last long did it?

City councils are trying to do the job of Health Canada, the Federal and provincial governments and are trying to ban the installation of Hydro Smart Meters until they are proved safe. Good for them, and good luck.
Subsequent to writing this we had the meter exchange done in our area and I wrote this letter to our local paper The Peninsular Review, of Sidney BC

Dear Editor,

Last week the crews from Corix descended on Tanner Ridge like a swarm of locusts and changed all the meters that they could over to the new radio transmissions station “smart meters”

I asked a man I was told was the crew boss where the reception / transmission towers were and he looked at me as if I was from Mars and said the meters were talking to the hydro poles ! Obviously I now live in a Douglas Adams world microwave.

Now I wonder what will happen to the birds and insects and even the trees in my neighbourhood. Will they disappear?

If the man tells me radio stations are talking to wired hydro poles obviously B C Hydro, Gordon Campbell, Christy Clark, Rich Coleman, (Dr.) Perry Kendall, and even Leona Aglukkaq. MP and writers such as your Tom Fletcher and Vaughan Palmer have no idea what is going on and no concern for the other creatures that live in BC.

On the other hand Rafe Mair, Damien Gillies and Jack Etkin do seem to have a grasp on reality.

We have a problem with loosing bees, and how long will it be before any bird or insect will be unable to remain in BC and take the barrage of radio waves? What will happen to our farmers, flowers (Butchart Gardens ) then? I have already noticed a change in the bird calls here on my tree lined road., as these meters start to chatter to each other.

Does anyone know what has happened to the old meters ? Harland Road landfill maybe, or perhaps sent overseas to be recycled? Surely there is no money to be made here in BC doing that is there?

I am not impressed with those charged with our interests

This letter was partially because after a night shift I woke in the late morning to hear what sounded like a cuckoo or a pigeon calling out in real distress, and I then noticed the silence of the other song birds. We also had a hive of the harmless kind of wasps which was suddenly deserted,  moths seem to have gone, and I haven’t seen any ants.

For those of you outside Victoria BC, Jack Elkin can be found by Goggling “Face to Face with Jack Etkin”, a great weekly 1 hour independent local TV show produced by Steve Poole and broadcast by Shaw, and Rafe and Damien can be found at The Common Sense Canadian. http://www.thecanadian.org where their seemingly tireless efforts on behalf of the people, fish, wildlife and rivers of BC can be found.

Where are we heading and why is the question I dread being asked by my grandchildren.

Stephen Harper admits getting rid of Gaddafi was the real goal.

Well NATO have succeeded it would appear in destroying Libya in preparation for the huge contracts for rebuilding what they have just bombed the hell out of.
The construction corporations of the world are lining up to bid on contracts sponsored by money already stolen from Libya and now to be released to the rebels to spend no doubt half on re-building and half on themselves and the Libyan people can whistle in the wind.

Canada’s part in all this should give us all pause for consideration.

Harper is proud to say that we are the new ‘go to guys’ in this kind of operation and that our pilots should be proud of the damage they have inflicted on men, women , children, hospitals, schools, universities, drinking water pipe lines and the factory to repair the bombed pipe line, not to mention the homes bombed to help the people see that they had better fall into line with the CIA, SAS, IMF sponsored rebels quickly. I feel sure that Israel had a hand in all this too, along with the French of course.

Canadian Forces in Libya give that country new hope: Harper
2011/09/01 | Stephanie Levitz, The Canadian Press

Prime Minister Stephen Harper says the work of Canadian Forces in Libya has given the country new hope.

He said Canada punched above its weight in the international military effort to oust Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi.

Interesting as all along he and his NATO co -war criminals have denied that was their aim, claiming it was to protect the civilians they were bombing, which seems oxymoronic even for the Conservative Party of Canada and their war lord.

Harper said the former Libyan dictator has bankrolled terrorism the world over and said Canadians still condemn him for his role in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, which killed 268 people and two Canadians.

Interesting also that now suddenly after all these years vengeance has to be enacted and how Harper can make that claim, when the biggest terrorists the world has ever known are his future bosses to our south, whose actions have caused a civilian death toll in Afghanistan and Iraq alone that are enough to make any normal person weep. Incidentally those 268 deaths though regrettable are small in comparison to the treasonous action of 11th, September 2001 in New York, done for money and to give an excuse for a war to supposedly kill one man, but which is still going on today and that man has been long dead. Are we really to believe he only just died? I don’t any more than I believe he was responsible to the attacks of 9-11..

Back to Harper:

He said a world without Gadhafi is a better place,

So now he is taking the removal of Gaddafi to the next step and like any good extremist christian wants him dead. This is the man who has the nerve to end his talks by saying: “May god bless you and may god bless Canada”. Frankly I don’t want his spiteful, hateful god having anything to do with either my family or I.

Conference of the Friends of Libya starts Thursday in Paris

Conference of the Friends of Libya starts Thursday in Paris

With friends like these blood sucking killers who needs enemies right?

Oh well if you follow the money these are all parasitical countries who wish to help divide the spoils and make sure that Libya falls in with the rest of the world and becomes a beholden, broke, and starving African nation along with most of the others on that continent. It might be said that Gaddafi had his faults, and I am sure he did, but being in debt to the international banks was not one of them. Thus he had to go anyway so that the Libyan money he had invested all around the world to start to help the other African States with their financial freedom could be frozen (under the claim it was his, not Libya’s) and used for something else.
By following the money you find which countries stood to lose huge amounts by Gaddafi’s plan to free those other African Countries from debt. Why do you think the African States do not recognize the rebels?
Why do you think the rebels had their own central bank given to them by the IMF before it was sure that they would even manage to obtain their weapons which had yet to be air lifted in by the US, French, English and of course Israel? And before the commandos from England, USA and France were on the land to help them.. Until they arrived it was a doubtful game, but with them there it became a forgone conclusion. unlimited amounts of new weapons and professional soldiers to use them made all the difference.

Now we know for sure. Harper has admitted that the aim was not to give democracy to Libya, (anyway who are we or any other corporate country to give or teach something we do not have), but rather to get rid of a man dangerous to the monetary profits of the world banks.

Strange how oil played a part in this too isn’t it?

Harpers claim that we – Canada – had to do this to save the people of Libya, and that we in no way intended to profit from what has happened is such a blatant lie that I felt ashamed again that he was speaking for Canada. When we and the rest of the world just stood by through Tunisia and Egypt and are doing nothing about Syria it makes a complete mockery of his words, nothing unusual there though. Where were/are  the ‘no fly zones’ in those three countries to ‘protect the civilians’ ? 

But of course the real profits are to be made from the rebuilding of a country largely destroyed by NATO and the CIA backed rebels, and the future interest on the soon to be debt of Libya to the international banks thanks to that new IMF sponsored central bank, backed by imaginary money again of course.

So once again corporate profits trump human lives, and an indifferent peoples of the world looks on with jaded eyes, as they try to figure out how they will survive themselves over the coming financial crunch, because the governments of the world refuse to accept that consumption is not the only way to prosperity. Consumption is indeed a sickness which we have been misled into thinking has to happen in order for any benefit to come our way. Nonsense, we as people do not benefit from increased consumption, we just pay more taxes and give higher profits to the producers of the junk we buy, and as it is worn out in a few months have to rebuy to keep pace with the Joneses, who in turn think we are Jones.

When we learn to look after the planet, and all the species that dwell on it, then we will start to see peace and prosperity, but until then we are deluding ourselves in thinking that we can be happy, or even peaceful. As long as we have hate filled men, such as Harper, controlled by corporate powers we will have nothing but wars and greed, poverty and hate, lies and deceit, killing and stealing and worship of fake gods.

I would like to see peace and love and respect for all living things in my time, but I think I am too old for that now.
