Hells Angels lose Ontario Liquor Licence Appeal

Back on track. QMI Agency is reporting on the the decision by the Ontario Licence Appeal Tribunal to strip Robert Barletta's strip club, Famous Flesh Gordon's, of its liquor licence. The decision lists some of the criminal activity the Ontario Hells Angels have committed that support their criminal organization status.

The Ontario Court of Appeal ruled a bar owner can be denied a liquor licence simply because he is a member of the Hells Angels. The written reasons and supporting facts of the decision " reveal a dozen full-patch Hells Angels and three "hangarounds" with 105 criminal convictions between them, as well as a new support club of at least four members, with 17 convictions between them. Last week, the tribunal ruled Barletta's connection to a criminal organization suggests he cannot carry on the business 'with law and integrity and honesty' -- requirements of the Liquor Licence Act." This is a copy of the reasons for judgement. The support club is the Gatekeepers.

Ottawa Shooting

Well it's all over the news. A Canadian solider was shot dead today in Ottawa near the Parliament buildings. The timing of this staged event is obscenely suspicious. Right before Harper and Trudeau Jr. passed an illegal bill that violated the Charter of Rights, CSIS foiled a terrorist bomb plot on Via Rail they set up to gain public support for the illegal bill. In Australia, right before parliament was to debate a similar bill doing away with civil liberty, their terrorist police shot an innocent man dead pretending he was a terrorist.

Today we have a radicalized white guy shoot a Canadian solder dead. Let me tell you that radicalized Islamic terrorists don't smoke pot or do PCP. This staged side show is to give Harper support for another absurdity. After CSIS was caught read handed by the RCMP for doing Air India, instead of charging them with murder Harper wants to give them more power to continue to break the Charter of Rights and use tax dollars to set up staged events like the Toronto 18. How about a task force to help CSIS find the 3.1 billion tax dollars they stole from their budget.

10:30 AM as the news was breaking live, the US department of defense was on hand to give their report. What on earth did the US department of defense have to do with this staged event? Did they set it up like the Surrey Pressure cooker fraud? Today is the day Canadian truthers have feared. The day when Canadian intelligence organizations would cross that sacred line like British and US intelligence agencies have done in the past. When instead of simply foiling a terrorist plot they set up, they actually murdered an innocent man. Today is a dark day indeed. Before giving CSIS more tax dollars to set up any more terrorist attacks and more power to break the Charter of Rights, they need to be criminally charged in the Air India bombing.

"While it is too early to jump to conclusions, I intend to hold fast to the following: we must ensure that this appalling act of violence is not used to justify a disproportionate response... We need to protect our rights and liberties in a democracy. We do know that through history these kinds of events open the door to a loss of democracy. Naomi Klein details the elements of seizing the opportunity created by tragedy or tumult in Shock Doctrine. The title of her new and important book on climate, This Changes Everything, is correct – the threat of the climate crisis changes everything. The shootings on Parliament Hill do not change everything. It is up to all of us to ensure that, to the extent we encounter demands for change, we keep in the forefront of our minds that once we surrender any rights it is very difficult to restore them." Elizabeth May

Safe Surrey campaign video

The Huffington Post is reporting on a new Safe Surrey campaign video that admits Surrey isn't so safe. First I'll say it wasn't me. If it was I would have signed it Tom Jones or Agent K. If you check my podcasts you can tell that's not my voice. Doug McCallum says it wasn't him but it was obviously someone who supports his candidacy. I do support Doug McCallum's return to the mayor's office but I am concerned about his position on the Gateway Casino scam which greatly supports all the crime and corruption that video reported on.

There are indeed two sides to Surrey. A thriving metropolis and a seedy underworld which plagues most major cities and small towns in the world. Surrey has always been the brunt of jokes. The Surrey version of the Harlem shake was but one example. People who vocally complain surrey jokes are getting old are delusional and are in denial. The problem in Newton and around the Front Room in Whalley has become exponentially worse. Letting crack dealers sell crack in public is not the answer.

Monday night I cruised the strip outside the Front Room and was amazed at how the numbers have increased so dramatically. Nightshirt ministries were handing out food to a full house in front of the old liquidation world and there was still several angry mobs outside the strip preying on anyone who dare cross their path. It's not just a matter of homelessness. It's a matter of predatory drug dealers who exploit and brutalize the homeless. Like the DTES the Front Room has become the Zombie apocalypse.

A couple of Thanksgivings ago my daughter bought an extra turkey. She said she wanted us to cook it up and hand it out to the homeless on the street. We parked by Pigeon corner in East Van and started dishing it up out of the trunk of my car. One appreciative recipient came back for seconds and said wow this is a real home cooked meal. I commented on the fact that we were from surrey and he started to go off about the Front Room. He said he was just out of jail and was at the Front Room. He said that place is violent. If you don't jump in and help them give someone the boots, they'll give you the boots. I got out of there and came down here instead. My daughter and I thought it was ironic that someone left surrey and went to the DTES because they thought it was safer. The fact is, the area outside the Front Room is violent and predatory. That needs to be addressed because Dianne Watts and Surrey's Worst refused to do so.

Larry Mizen found dead - Update

CTV is reporting that Surrey's most ruthless drug debt enforcer was found dead in a Surrey basement at 136 Street and 110A Avenue around 8:30 p.m. Sunday night This is big news. If he wasn't responsible for Janice Shore's murder he knew who was. One source claims he used to work for Len Pelletier and lenny's cousin John Crowston. Kevin Diakiw wrote an article on Larry Mizen.

Above is an old picture of Len Pelletier standing beside Chuck Liddell with his cousin John Crowston on the far left of the picture and his other cousin Bob Green on the far right of the picture. I have a source that claims John, Lenny and Eric Montgomery ran houses in Surrey, Langley and Aldergrove. Eric Montgomery is Cliff Mongomery's brother. Eric moved to Abbotsford while Lenny kept doing business in Surrey for you know who. He went to Burnsview. His son took over the 856.

One has to wonder if Larry Mizen is dead because some drug addict he was beating the life out of finally pulled a gun and shot him or if his employer terminated his contract. Everyone in the club seems to hate Lenny but put up with him because he makes money and hides behind Bob Green.

There seems to be a fair bit of overlap in jurisdiction when it comes to Surrey. Bob Green and Glen Hehn are with the Nomads but long time Surrey crystal meth cook Kerry Ryan Renaud worked for John Punko and the East Van Hells Angels. The court was told the East Vancouver Hells Angels hired contract killer Mickie (Phil) Smith to kill Paul Percy Soluk at a crack house in Surrey. Smith said a man he called Yurik helped him chop up and dispose of the body. Smith said "Yurik's not an Angel but he works with the Angels. I know he's done a lot of hits." Yurik didn't just do a few hits, he ran several crack houses in Surrey for the Hells Angles at the time. He's dead now too.

According to a US Indictment Randy Jones and the Whiterock Hells Angels (I mean the new Surrey Girls chapter) are deeply involved in the Surrey drug trade as well. Randy's brother Trevor is still waiting to be extradited on those charges. That was another huge cross border pot for cocaine drug ring tied to the Hells Angels. TBarz which is now called Shakerz was listed in court documents as the hub of that operation.

The road was still blocked off Monday night and IHIT had a tent set up. He was found in the house beside the apartment building. Locals say all the windows in the house were smashed and it was boarded up but apparently it was still being used as a crack house. All the pictures I have of Larry are from his public Facebook profile and are copyright free. The media is free to use them at will.

Right after Larry was found dead Scan BC reported that #Surrey #RCMP are investigating multiple reports of two vehicles shooting at each other at 100th Ave & 129 St. Casings found on the ground.

Update: Front Page of today's Vancouver Province was a picture of Larry Mizen holding that giant meat cleaver sword with the caption Whalley Monster Taken down. Very dramatic indeed. Yet this time the story calls for it. My pet peeve is the ridiculous reference to the Bacon brothers as being notorious that all the media outlets keep repeating like parrots. The Bacon brothers were not notorious. They were suburban princesses empowered by Larry Amero and the Hells Angels.

Although Larry Mizen was much more notorious than the Bacon brothers it's still not a word I'd use to describe him. I'd refer to him as ruthless and deranged not notorious. There is not a snowballs chance in hell Jamie Bacon would try and tax Larry Mizen simply because like Ryan Renaud, Larry was already working for the Big Red Machine. Why do you think he lasted so long?

In today's article the Vancouver Province interviewed a couple people who knew Larry. Let's apply those states to the test of believability so we can separate fact from fiction to clearly discern what has happened. Two facts presented in the article are the claims that Larry was associated with bikers and the Surrey House of Horrors. Those are facts. The claim that he was a renegades that would steel from the gangs including the Hells Angels is absurd. If he ever stole from the Hells Angels, he would not have been permitted to work for so many years. He was permitted to work so long because he was working for them.

It's quite possible the Hells Angels pulled a Juel Stanton and terminated his contract. Not because they didn't approve of all the hard work he did for them over the years but because he got them some bad press. The article claims "according to neighbors who have spoken with detectives, Mizen’s bloody body was found in the bathroom of his suite." I spoke with one of his neighbors Monday night. He said previously all the windows in that place had been broken and were boarded up. That would have been a message to leave town and that his contract was terminated. They came back to finish the job.

I have a source that claims Larry worked for Len Pelletier. Does that mean Pelletier's next to get capped? Unlikely because he is a money maker. Ron Lising and his merry band of misfits liked to TAX Lenny's guy's at every opportunity. It became a good source of income for them. The claim that Larry frequented the Surrey House of Horrors but never participated in any of the tortures that went on there is not believable. The Hells Angles ran the House of Horrors. Larry was an enforcer for them. He was directly involved in the violence associated with that hell hole.

The October Surprise

No, we're not talking about the Great Pumpkin. According to Wikipedia, "in American political jargon, the October surprise is a news event deliberately created to influence the outcome of an election, particularly one for the U.S. presidency."

Wikipedia also reports that "In the 1980 presidential election, Republican challenger Ronald Reagan feared that a last-minute deal to release American hostages held in Iran might earn incumbent Jimmy Carter enough votes to win re-election. As it happened, in the days prior to the election, press coverage was consumed with the Iranian government's decision—and Carter's simultaneous announcement—that the hostages would not be released until after the election."

"It was first written about in a Jack Anderson article in The Washington Post in the fall of 1980, in which he alleged that the Carter administration was preparing a major military operation in Iran for rescuing U.S. hostages in order to help him get reelected. Subsequent allegations surfaced against Reagan alleging that his team had impeded the hostage release to negate the potential boost to the Carter campaign."

"After the release of the hostages on January 20, 1981, minutes after Reagan's inauguration, some charged that the Reagan campaign had made a secret deal with the Iranian government whereby the Iranians would hold the hostages until after Reagan was elected and inaugurated."

"Abolhassan Banisadr, the former President of Iran, has also stated that the Reagan campaign struck a deal with Teheran to delay the release of the hostages in 1980, asserting that by the month before the American Presidential election in November 1980, many in Iran's ruling circles were openly discussing the fact that a deal had been made between the Reagan campaign team and some Iranian religious leaders in which the hostages' release would be delayed until after the election so as to prevent President Carter's re-election. He repeated the charge in My Turn to Speak: Iran, the Revolution & Secret Deals with the U.S."

That is what the real October Surprise was about. The allegation that Earl Brian along with George Bush Sr. and William Casey from the CIA met with Iranians in Paris and bribed them to keep the hostages until after the election so President Reagan and Vice President Bush could get elected over Jimmy Carter. The allegations include the claim that the money they used to bribe the Iranians to delay the release of the hostages was from the $50 million Earl Brian embezzled from Nesbitt Thompson clients in Canada. That was the real October surprise. Which forces the question, if they bribed them to delay the release of hostages, did they set the whole thing up and bribe them to take the hostages in the first place just to win the election?

Iran contra was not about selling Iran arms to release hostages. The New York Times reported that "Congress moved quickly to get to the bottom of the affair, in which the Reagan Administration sold arms to Iran and diverted some proceeds to the Nicaraguan rebels." Iran contra was about selling Iran arms to fund the contra rebels in Nicaragua.

They were selling chemical weapons including mustard gas to Saddam Hussein and arms to Iran both at the same time. It had nothing to do with supporting democracy. It was about making money. The Gary Webb story showed the CIA was also letting their contra assets bring cocaine into the US to raise money for their cause creating the US crack epidemic. The exact same time George Bush Sr. was leading the war on drugs in the media he in reality created the problem.

The Site C Dam is better than a Nuclear Reactor

While we're on the subject of sustainable business, we need to talk about the Site C Dam. The mob is fickle and the politicians are spineless. As we speak an oil tanker is drifting aimlessly without power set to crash into the Haida Gwaii off the BC coast. Are we supposed to sit back and watch it happen? Of course not. The coast guard was able to tow it away from running aground temporarily to buy enough time for some tug boats to get there to take control of the situation.

Some people will complain about anything and everything no matter what. There is no pleasing everyone. Some people even complained about the wind generator they put on Grouse mountain. Come on. Are we really supposed to sit at home in the dark without computers, iPhones or Internet and not go anywhere? Oil spills, tar sands and toxic tailing pools of fresh water are legitimate environmental concerns. Nuclear reactors are another.

As we speak the Fukishima reactor is still leaking radioactive water into the pacific ocean contaminating an ocean of fish and an entire food supply. Instead of arguing back and forth trying to hide and deny that fact, let's put our heads together and stop the freaking leak. We can argue about clean up until the cows come home. Until then let's stop the leak and stop it from getting worse. Hiding that ongoing disaster is not socially responsible.

There are huge concerns with nuclear reactors. As we have seen, they are dangerous and can create serious health risks in any natural disaster. As we have seen, they produce radioactive waste that is virtually impossible to dispose of safely. Not only that, but when we give China, Libya or anywhere else nuclear reactors we give them the technology and materials to make nuclear weapons. That is not socially responsible. As we speak Stephen Harper has relaunched the nuclear arms race.

In contrast, hydro electric dams are much safer and environmentally friendly. Next time you go to Grouse mountain, stop off at the Cleavland Dam and take a look at the horrible environmental damage that longstanding dam has done to the ecosystem. It has created a wonderful park and lake that is still used as a water shed for drinking water. It is totally clean and has powered Vancouver for many years.

Have you ever gone boating on Stave Lake or Alouette lake? Those lakes were created by hydro electric dams. There are numerous dams in the lower mainland that have served us well. They are clean and sustainable. As I've said, some people will complain about everything given the chance. Flooding a forest is an initial concern. So log it first before it's taken out by a forest fire or the pine beetle. If people own land that will be flooded, they have to be fairly compensated.

Years ago I was handing out flyers in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery. A couple of transient punk rocker kids were giving me a hard time and yelled out "How many trees did it take to make your flyers?!" Without hesitation I yelled back "How many trees did it take the last time you went to the bathroom?!" He stopped in his tracks and with a stunned look on his face turned to his girlfriend as if to ask what the hell I was talking about. She finally broke the awkward silence by saying "Toilet paper. Everyone uses toilet paper and it takes trees to make toilet paper." The guy just kind of pondered that for a while and realized that he and everyone else uses trees to some extent. The challenge is to be sustainable. Cut down a tree and plant three in it's place. That's responsible. Clear cutting forests without tree planting is not.

When I look at the Site C Dam proposal it looks like a freaking park with a lake that would be teaming with boaters and recreational uses. It's a lot better than a nuclear reactor. It never ceases to amaze me that with all the relatively modern technology of splitting an atom, all the brain surgeons do with it is create heat to boil water to turn a steam turbine that generates electricity. The same thing a hydro electric Dam does only not as effective. Hydro electric dams are the power of nature. Imagine tapping the power of the Niagara falls. That's what hydro electric dams do.

The only real concern that I can see is the risk to spawning salmon. So how do we respond? We create a fish hatchery which improves the survival rate of the Salmon. On your way to Grouse mountain and the Cleavland Dam on Capliano Road, stop off at the fish ladder and hatchery on the way. You can see if for yourself and hike all around that wonderful sustainable ecosystem.

Take a look at the location of the proposed Dam. There are already two dams on the same river up stream. Stave Lake and Bunsen Lake are a chain of dams and tunnels that lead into other dams. That's good business. We would be much better off helping China build hydro electric dams then helping them build coal plants and nuclear reactors to reignite the nuclear arms race.

Note: Using the site C Dam to collect water to sell to the US for fracking would be a bad idea. Using the dam to generate electricity is a good idea. Electric cars need electricity to operate.

Exporting Fresh Water for Fracking

I realize there has been a huge ongoing campaign about fresh waters sales from Canada to the United States and to be quite frank, I never understood why. Water is a renewable resource. It evaporates and come back to us as rain. Now I realize why it is a concern. They are polluting massive amounts of water for fresh water fracking.

CBC is reporting that "the Western Canada Wilderness Committee and the Sierra Club filed a petition against the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission and energy company EnCana Corp. over the commission's decision to grant repeat short-term water approvals to the company. The environmental groups wanted the court to declare the approvals a violation of the provincial Water Act. They also asked a judge to quash several such permits issued to Encana. But in a decision posted this week on the court website, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Shelley Fitzpatrick dismissed the application."

Why was the application dismissed? "Days before the court hearing began, the provincial government introduced its updated Water Sustainability Act, which expressly allows recurrent short-term approvals. But the previous legislation did not prohibit such approvals." Christy Clark and the BC Liberals changed the law that they were breaking days before the trial. The Water Sustainability Act does the exact opposite of what it claims just like Harper's not about Crime bill does and just like the US Patriot Act does.

"Court heard that in 2012, the oil and gas commission granted the industry access to 20.4 million cubic metres of surface water. About seven million were for fracking — 54 per cent of that from short-term approvals." The judge lied and said only a small percentage of the water the US gets from Canada is being used in fresh water fracking. That is a lie. The US is using massive amounts of fresh water for fracking. Instead of using it for drinking or irrigation they use it for fracking. We give them water for drinking and irrigation so they can use theirs for fracking. It's that simple.

Recently Gwyn Morgan criticized New Brunswick and Nova Scotia's decision to join with Quebec to ban fracking because of the massive amounts of water it pollutes. Apparently they have banned liquid propane fracking as well as fresh water fracking. There is a huge difference between the two. Fresh water fracking involves putting massive amounts of toxic chemicals into the water to make fracking fluid which leaves toxic tailing ponds behind. Fracking with propane does not.

As one blog reader pointed out, fracking with liquid natural gas doesn't pollute massive amounts of fresh water like fresh water fracking does. He claims one Alberta company does fracking with propane not water and they have some oil wells in northern BC. The problem is not all the BC oil wells use propane fracking instead of fresh water fracking.

The same concern exists in the United States. The massive amounts of fresh water they are still using for fracking is creating a drought from Texas to California. We need to put a moratorium on fresh water fracking in BC and the export of BC water for fresh water fracking. Claiming they aren't uing it for fracking is untrue. If the BC Liberals won't do it we need to elect someone else who will.

Heating with natural gas is good. Heating with coal is bad. Fracking with liquid propane is good. Fracking with fresh water is bad. Fracking with liquid propane costs more. That's why some companies won't do it. The public need to force them to. It's a matter of public safety.

Seniors take on Canada Post

The Globe and Mail is reporting that Seniors and the disabled are taking on Canada Post over their unilateral decision to remove door to door delivery. The scam was introduced based on the lie that the company is struggling financially. They have consistently made a profit year after year and pay dividends to the Canadian government which has considerably added to the tax revenue.

The only reason Canada Post could possibly manipulate the numbers is by including huge expenditures on US sorting machines that don't work in Canada because of our six digit postal code as opposed to the lengthy US zip codes. Canada Post regularly lies to the media and the media blindly reprints those lies without thinking or questioning them. Canada Post already implemented a massive price increase on stamps to help offset the costs of the old machines that don't work in Canada. Ask Rick Mercer what he thinks.

Canada Post needs to be publicly accountable. Eliminating door to door delivery is a bad idea. It adversely affects seniors and the disabled and it puts the security of the queen's mail at risk.

Save the Dream, Stop Moya Green. Oh right she ran off to shaft England. Now they've contracted out her axe murdering position to derail Canada Post just like she did to CN and to Bombardier when she was with them. Buyer Beware. Moya Greene is Bad for Business. Public services need to be publicly accountable. Privatizing Canada Post will remove public accountability and reduce tax revenue which means taxpayers will have to come up with the loss in tax revenue.

Vancouver Civic Election Nonsense

Speaking of the communist take over of Canada, take a look at Meena Wong's brainstorm. She's the COPE candidate for the mayor of Vancouver. The Vancouver Observer is reporting that she wants to implement a $30 a month Transit pass. She wants to force every citizen to buy one like they force every University student to buy one even if they live on campus. That my friend is communism. I don't ride the sky train. It sucks. I shouldn't be forced to buy something I don't use.

She also wants to introduce a $15 minimum wage. A nice idea but who's going to pay for it? The provincial government sets minimum wage not the city. She is overstepping jurisdiction and is just getting extreme. Larry Campbell was a good guy. Vancouver's own Da Vincci. COPE has never been able to get it together since him. I realize they are typically left leaning but these guys are a bit weird for my comfort zone.

In Vancouver I'm going to have to go with Kirk LaPointe and the NPA. They support business and oppose the toxic garbage incinerator. That is common sense. Ever Gregor Robertson and Vision Vancouver is becoming weird and extreme. Looks like we've come full circle.

Here in Surrey Barinder Rasode, the one that shafted the entire Sikh community on the conflicted Gateway Casino scam, now wants to do away with election signs. Nobody likes 50 million election signs everywhere but eliminating them completely? Come on, that's a bit weird.

I'll admit that having Linda Hepner's painful face plastered all over the city is indeed a form of air pollution. There should be a fine for that. Yet it does fall under free speech and they have to come down after the election is over. Obviously the reason Rasode is concerned about election signs is because she doesn't have the financial backing the others do which once again puts her credibility into question. However, does it always have to be the richest candidate wins? That's not right either. We need to use common sense and shun extremism.

Fuel Tanker set to crash into Haida Gwaii - 2nd Update

MSN News is reporting that a ship, which had been travelling from Everett, Wash., to Russia, is carrying 400 tonnes of bunker fuel and 50 tonnes of diesel fuel has lost power and is drifting off the B.C. coast toward Haida Gwaii. On its Facebook page, the Council of the Haida Nation on Friday morning said “Coast Guard is preparing for the worst with the ship hitting ground in 3-4 hours” and called the situation “dire.” Mobilize. There is no reason this accident can't be prevented. Get a ship load of tugboats on the scene to steer it to safety.

CBC is now reporting that "the Canadian Coast Guard vessel Gordon Reid has managed to secure a line and is towing the incapacitated Russian cargo ship Simushir away from the Haida Gwaii coast, according to officials with the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Victoria. Navy Lt. Paul Pendergast told CBC News the two vessels are currently moving away from the direction of land at a speed of approximately 1.5 nautical miles per hour. Three other vessels currently en route to the scene have greater tow capability that the Gordon Reid, and are expected to arrive early Saturday morning, Pendergast said." Thank God. This is another reason we need the coast guard in Vancouver that Stephen Harper cut.

Update: CBC is now reporting that the oil tanker is drifting again after the tow lie broke three times. The two other coast guard vessels arrived on scene but aren't properly equipped to secure a tow line. Well that wasn't very smart. Send in some freaking tug boats. This is important. Dispatch the tug boats. Send three new tow lines to the coast guard vessels on scene by helicopter. Use all three tow lines at once so they don't break. Come on scare crow. Use your brain.
