Fears that Canadian training mission in Ukraine may unintentionally help neo-Nazis groups

U.S. lawmakers have voted to block American troops from training a unit with neo-Nazi members that’s operating with Ukraine’s forces — a move that raises questions about what safeguards Canada has to ensure it doesn’t help extremist groups.

Canadian soldiers from Petawawa Garrison in the Ottawa Valley are preparing to head to Ukraine later in the summer to train government forces. U.S. troops are already there.

But Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives are concerned some of those to be trained could be linked to extremist groups.

Stephen Harper’s “Northern Foundation”

Stephen Harper was a member of the ultra-right-wing Northern Foundation in 1989, Mr. Harrison documents that this was a group that had numerous Neo-Nazi skinheads as organizers, as well as a leadership that included a well-known white supremacist and anti-feminist crusader as a prominent leader that sought to take over the mass-media to enable the fulfillment of a right wing agenda. The Northern Foundation, with the support of corporate allies was able to get Mr. Harper elected in the first place by indeed, taking over the mass-media in Canada. This was done to shelter Mr.

Harper and His Movement Were No Friends to Mandela

Of all the hypocrisies revealed by Stephen Harper, perhaps none are so morally offensive as his sudden, solemn respect for Nelson Mandela. We will never know how Harper would reconcile his past attitudes towards apartheid with his trip to South Africa to honour the iconic statesman at his memorial.

Harper and Trudeau: At the very least, we ex­pect them not to make things worse

It has been a dis­tress­ing spec­ta­cle all round. It isn’t that our politi­cians have not been “de­bat­ing” the “is­sues.” By now we have a fair idea of where they all stand on the threat of ter­ror­ism and how a free and demo­cratic so­ci­ety should re­spond to it. Nor can any­one com­plain that the ques­tion of how to rec­on­cile re­li­gious obli­ga­tions and in­di­vid­ual rights, di­ver­sity and unity, has not re­ceived a thor­ough air­ing. I would even go so far as to say there have been valid points made on all sides.

BILL C-51 BACKGROUNDER #5: OVERSIGHT AND REVIEW: TURNING ACCOUNTABILITY GAPS INTO CANYONS?

Canada’s system of national security “oversight” is imperfect. Its system of national security “review” is frayed, perhaps to the breaking point. The government’s antiterrorism law, bill C-51, will accelerate this pattern. Without a serious course correction, we risk the prospect of avertible security service scandals.

There is often a misunderstanding about the distinction between “oversight” and “review”.

Stupidity outbreak mars Harper’s visit

What a relief. Prime Minister Stephen Harper visited Whitehorse yesterday and shared with the territory a fresh insight: the plight of missing and murdered aboriginal women in Canada is not, in fact, a “sociological phenomenon.” Rather, the root of the problem is that we simply haven’t locked enough people away in prison.

“We should view it as crime,” Harper said. “It is crime against innocent people, and it needs to be addressed as such.”

Well, that makes things much tidier, doesn’t it?
