Looking Behind the Smoke and Mirrors

Published

7 minute read

“Pay no attention to the man behind the curtains,” says the Wizard in the 1939 classic film adapted from the Frank L. Baum masterpiece of entertainment and satire.

While seen primarily as a film for young people it has inspired sequels by Baum, and then later has spawned spoofs, pastiches and alternate views of entire books and the cast of characters.

The scene is near the climax of the film and as Toto, who has escaped from Dorothy, runs towards a curtain and pulls it back to reveal the Wizard who is speaking into a tube and controlling a distorted image.

“Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain,” he says to the group who is watching.

Caught in his lies, he tells the story of how he came to Oz and became the Great Wizard.

If you look into the history of the film and the subsequent books it is apparent that the Wizard, Dorothy, Toto, Tin Man, Scarecrow and Lion are archetypes and represent more than they seem to be.  The entire film is an allegory about power and greed and a dire warning that not all is as it seems.

Our modern history, our pandesent is beleaguered with the same problem.

Not all is as it seems.

We could discuss US politics with Qanon and the Main Stream Media at odds over perceptions and reality, but it would conclude nor solve no problem.  Is Donald Trump the worst president ever or are the Democrats demons behind every Bush?  Hmmm.

In Canada, we have a similar problem without a national information source that permeates society at all levels.  It is factual that our Main Stream Media (CBC, CTV, Black Press and others) have been encouraged to be gentle with the Liberals and they certainly have been.  ‘Alternate’ news organizations such as True North and the Rebel have traditionally been treated as personae non grata by the Liberals and until this month, by the ruling party in Alberta as well.

Yet, funded or not Main Stream Media do not have all the news sources and reports that reveal a different picture than ‘sunny days’ Justin wants us all to see.

Most Canadians would be surprised to know that there are lawsuits and court cases pending against Prime (Crime) Minister Justin Trudeau (and his cronies) on a number of levels and a number of charges that include corruption and deception on Covid 19 responses.  There is also a motion that includes private copyright on a national law!

Super Lawyer Rocco Galati is suing the Canadian government, Trudeau, Federal and Provincial Health Ministers, and others in the first of its kind supreme court lawsuit.  His argument is fact and research based and he asserts that the extreme COVID Measures that have now been proven to cause 14 to 1 more deaths than the actual virus!

Rebel News reporter, Ezra Levant has covered this story in a hard-hitting report at:

https://www.rebelnews.com/rocco_galatis_lockdown_lawsuit_ezra_levant_interviews_constitutional_lawyer_suing_trudeau_tam_john_tory_and_more

A secondary site, globalresearch.ca has interviewed Galati at:

https://www.globalresearch.ca/video-constitution-lawyer-rocco-galati-files-claim-against-government-covid-19-unlawful-acts/5718651

Just as many YouTube, Twitter and alternate news sources (NOT CONSPIRACY) have reported and documented, the Galati lawsuit has a long list of experts, data, and more to prove the case against the government.

Presently, a handful of countries including the United States and Germany have similar push back against extreme measures.

Secondly, Canadian Norman Traversy delivered a 192 page document to the US Embassy in Ottawa on July 1, 2020 alleging that Justin Trudeau is guilty of  corruption in the S.N.C. Lavalin scandal at many levels, just as many of his cohorts in the Liberal Cabinet and sphere of influence.  Previously, Donald Trump, the CIA and FBI were delivered copies and are now aware of the charges.  According to the new USMCA agreement section 27.5, any leader charged with corruption can and will be investigated to the full extent of the law.

As of mid August, Traversy now has legal counsel for his legal action and as his website notes:

“We (Norman) has (have) served a letter to the Ethics Commissioner concerning Trudeau’s obstruction of justice. We are piggybacking on the WE investigation, the Trudeau III report. We have CC’d President Trump and President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.”

As reported by Traversy, extensive preparations for the Private Prosecution in the Ontario Court of Justice are ongoing with support growing quickly from all sectors of Canadian society.

“We will be able to add further charges to the motion once we are heard, and we will be adding MC IMC elements (Picton Pig Farm),” noted Traversy in an interview.

While there are many sources for information on such activities in the United States and worldwide, Canadian sources are few and I defer to Norman Traversy who states the case best in his letter to President Trump and Mexican President Obrador that explains three separate allegations:

https://justiceforcanada.files.wordpress.com/2020/07/letter-to-trump_obrador-with-brief.pdf

All things considered, with a Crime Minister who is allegedly complicit in corruption of various sorts and the promotion of global corporation sponsored policy in Canada should not have the mandate to lead our country considering his demonstrated moral compass.  I am embarrassed and ashamed of the morals of our leadership in our country.

May God have mercy on our souls if we re-elect this evil man.

Thoughts from Tom Chapman on keeping the Molly Banister Extension

Published on

The Molly Banister extension should not be removed from the City plan for the following reasons:

  1. This street extension was included in the original development plan at the time of the Bower Centre Mall and the Bower subdivision, recognising the need to provide proper future access to the shopping centre and commercial developments both north of the Mall and on Gaetz Avenue, as well as the projected population growth in future eastern residential subdivisions.
  1. The City has continued to grow in those areas, with planning currently as far as 20th Avenue, and the need for increased access to the Bower Mall and neighboring businesses will continue.
  2. The current left turn access for westbound traffic to the Mall from 32 Street via 47th Avenue was opposed by many, and hotly debated by Council at the time. Clearly access via Molly Banister would take a traffic load off 32st., and 47th Avenue which was never designed to provide access to the Mall.
  3. If the extension is removed from the plan and the lands are converted to residential use the ability to provide proper access to businesses in Bower and on Gaetz Avenue will be forever lost, unless the City is prepared to go to the huge costs of a future expropriation.
  4. Unless there has been some changes to planning legislation, City development bylaws, or required standards, the developer is required to dedicate lands for all roads required for it’s development, as well as a percentage for park and playground areas.
  5. The Developer, with decades of experience in the City, would be well aware of this requirement in determining what it was prepared to pay for the land.
  6. Clearly, If the Developer can persuade Council to remove the extension this will result in housing development on the extension area, increased profit for the developer, and long term detriment of the City. A huge benefit for the developer!
  7. Currently 19th Street provides direct convenient access to Gasoline Alley to the detriment of City businesses and particularly the downtown. By eliminating the ability to develop the extension and push more traffic on to  19th Street the City will increase the attractiveness of Gasoline Alley for more businesses to develop there or relocate from within the City downtown and other areas, and will not take any pressure off 32 street. I would think that the Downtown Business Association should be concerned, as well as businesses along south Gaetz Ave.
  8. The next concern is 32 street. The City proposal to expand 32 street  would require six lanes over Piper Creek. Otherwise keeping it at 4 lanes creates a bottleneck that would restrict traffic flow and increase traffic on 47 Avenue. The impact of this expansion upon the value of adjacent homes cannot be underestimated.  Currently hundreds of thousand dollars are being spent to stabilize the current structure over Piper Creek. I prefer to an early start on construction of the extension and spending the money on a proper overpass of Piper creek on the extension route rather than expansion of the current overpass on 32  Street.

Removal of the Extension is a mistake!

Respectfully submitted

Thomas Chapman

I think it will be really important for your group to get strong representation from Bower Mall

which I think would be most adversely affected if the eastern access from 22 street to Molly Banister is eliminated.

I think they have always relied on the promised Molly Banister extension being built, and

I can’t imagine that they proceeded with the recent upgrades to the Mall without this in mind.

They may have had some discussions or assurances from City planners?

Also there are other businesses in the area such as Sim’s Furniture, new businesses in the

former Legion building and on Geatz Avenue which may have concerns.

One point I did miss is that the westerly end of Molly Banister leads to direct access to Taylor Drive

and this could take pressure off 32 Street.
