Newly released documents say Defence Minister Peter MacKay told Israel's top military commander, Maj.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi, during a 2011 visit to the Middle East, that "a threat to Israel is a threat to Canada."
The statement came a year after cabinet colleague Peter Kent was upbraided as junior foreign affairs minister for telling a Toronto-based publication that "an attack on Israel would be considered an attack on Canada."

This, of course, is virtually impossible as the readings were confirmed by two entirely different locations. BlackCat and the Radiation Network both recorded the levels, meaning that the likelihood both of their systems failed at the exact same time and produced the exact same result would be dismal.
As the story develops, more information will undoubtedly come out on the subject. It appears that the EPA%u2019s incognito takedown of the measurement results indicates that the agency, perhaps along with other government organizations, will vehemently deny that there was any real spike in radiation levels. The %u2018failure%u2019 message issued by the Radiation Network also shows that it is very possible that an organized level of non-disclosure may ultimately be the...
A Big List of Star Codes
Also known as Vertical Service Codes
Here is the list of "Star Codes". I do not mean for it to be exhaustive.
These codes work in the US and I believe Canada. These services are only available to land-line or cellular telephones. Some require additional services be purchased from the telephone company to use them.

*42- Change Forward-To Number: followed by directory number is used to change the forwarded-to number for Call Forwarding when phone not answered.
*44 - Voice Activated Dialing - Customers will dial this code to access their VAD directory in order to add,...
Meeting privé. voilà. Circulez, y a rien à voir.
OTTAWA—Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says a nuclear-armed Iran would form a hinge of history and pose a threat to the whole world.
On a visit to Ottawa today, Netanyahu said that even if Iran agrees to resume international talks on its nuclear program, it could just be a ruse to stall for time to complete a bomb program.
While Prime Minister Stephen Harper agrees that Iran’s nuclear ambitions pose a danger, he says he wants to see a peaceful solution.
Harper’s refusing to either endorse or condemn the possibility of an Israeli pre-emptive strike against Iran, saying he wants every action taken to find a peaceful answer.
Netanyahu is opening a mostly private, three-day Canadian...
The Bank is made up of a Governor, Deputy Governor and twelve directors. The directors are chosen by the Minister of Finance with the approval of the Governor in Council and the twelve directors are responsible for the appointment of a Governor and Deputy Governor with the approval of the Governor in Council. The Deputy Minister of Finance is a member of the board but he has no vote!! There is no provision in the BoC Act for the appointment of elected representatives to the board of the Bank. (I think it is safe to assume from this set-up that the duly elected Parliament has no say in the policies and operations of the BoC). The capital of the bank is divided into one hundred thousand shares with a par value of $50.00 each. (Section 17.1 and 17.2) and the shares are held...
Freemen "They Genuinely Believe Cop & Courts & Governments Have No Control Over Them!"
KITCHENER — A plastic toy gun is to blame for the mayhem that saw a man arrested at his daughter’s school this week.
It was found in the home of the Kitchener father of four after he was arrested over a drawing his daughter drew at the school on Wednesday. Jessie Sansone was strip-searched but not charged.
Sansone’s four-year-old daughter Neaveh had drawn a picture of a man holding a gun and said it was her daddy, triggering fears that the family home contained a weapon that was a threat to the children.
%u201CI%u2019m picking up my kids and then, next thing you know, I%u2019m locked up,%u201D Jessie Sansone, 26, said Thursday.
%u201CI was in shock. This is completely insane. My daughter drew a gun on a piece of paper at school.%u201D
During the interview, Baird was asked what he would be doing if he were not Canada's foreign minister.
"Likely working on a kibbutz," he replied, referring to the communal farms common in Israel.
What terrible deed had Dr. Said done to merit such a reversal of professional fortune? Well, in 2009 Dr. Said asked to dinner %u2013 not once, mind, but twice %u2013 Dr. Melissa Forbes, a family practitioner in anesthesia on a three-month rotation through CHEO. When she declined, he withdrew his attentions, and that was the end of it from his point of view.

William Combes, age 59 and in good health, was scheduled to be a primary witness at the opening session of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS) on September 12 in London, England. I last saw William ten days ago, on the eve of my departure for a European speaking tour, and he looked better than I had seen him in years. According to his partner Mae, William was in stable health and was assigned a new doctor at St. Paul%u2019s Hospital this past week. William was then committed to the hospital for %u201Ctests%u201D, and his health began to immediately deteriorate. He died suddenly yesterday of a still-undisclosed cause. The Vancouver Coroner%u2019s Office refuses to comment on William%u2019s death.
At a time when the world is slowly awakening to the truth about Israel, it%u2019s policies of Genocide, Occupation and Apartheid, one country chooses to turn a blind eye to this reality, Canada. The Harper Tories, ardent supporters of those policies, won a majority in yesterday%u2019s Federal Election.The Canadian taxpayer will pay dearly for this as do their neighbours to the south.
The stated goal of the US-led War in Afghanistan, according to the Obama Administration, is to defeat the Taliban and establish a stable democratic government over the entire country. Critical to that goal is establishing a professional Afghan army and police force that is not corrupt, and that has the respect of the Afghan people.
But reports out of Canada suggest that far from creating such a military and police force, the so-called International Security and Assistance Force (ISAF) is turning a blind eye to the thuggish criminality of those organizations, both to avoid growing opposition in ISAF member countries, and to avoid offending those organizations in Afghanistan.
The Yorkshire pigs were developed by researchers in Ontario at the University of Guelph, who spliced in genes from mice to decrease the amount of phosphorus produced in the pigs' dung, the report said.
The genetic modification means the new strain of pigs produce 30 to 65 percent less phosphorus in their waste, which has been problematic in surface and groundwater around large livestock operations, Canwest said.
If accurate (and these provisions are consistent with the U.S. approach for the past few years in bilateral trade negotiations) the combined effect of these provisions would dramatically reshape Canadian copyright law and to eliminate sovereign choice on domestic copyright policy. Having just concluded a national copyright consultation, these issues were at the heart of thousands of submissions. If Canada agrees to these ACTA terms, flexibility in WIPO implementation (as envisioned by the treaty) would be lost and Canada would be forced to implement a host of new reforms (this is precisely what U.S. lobbyists have said they would like to see happen). In other words, the very notion of a made-in-Canada approach to copyright would be gone.
Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper's government publicly supported Israel's brutal assault on Gaza and voted alone at the UN Human Rights Committee in defense of Israel's actions three weeks ago. Now Canada has taken over Israeli diplomacy. Literally.
In solidarity with Gaza, Venezuela expelled Israel's ambassador at the start of the bombardment and then broke off all diplomatic relations two weeks later. Israel need not worry since Ottawa plans to help out. On 29 January, The Jerusalem Post reported that "Israel's interests in Caracas will now be represented by the Canadian Embassy." This means Canada is officially Israel, at least in Venezuela.
OTTAWA %u2014 The Conservative government is preparing sweeping new eavesdropping legislation that will force Internet service providers to let police tap exchanges on their systems - but will likely reignite fear that Big Brother will be monitoring the private conversations of Canadians.
The goal of the move, which would require police to obtain court approval, is to close what has been described as digital "safe havens" for criminals, pedophiles and terrorists because current eavesdropping laws were written in a time before text messages, Facebook and voice-over-Internet phone lines.
Canada Park is built on the ruins of three once-thriving Arab villages that Israeli soldiers bulldozed into the ground during the 1967 Mideast War. Nearly 9,000 Arab residents were driven out of their homes and forced to march for days over rocky hillsides to safety.
When the residents were gone, the soldiers pulled down the homes and plowed under the orchards. Israel wiped the villages off the map.
Canada stood alone before a United Nations human rights council yesterday, the only one among 47 nations to oppose a motion condemning the Israeli military offensive in Gaza.
