10 charged in Alberta fentanyl bust

The Calgary Herald is reporting that "Police have arrested and charged 10 suspects, including three men from Okotoks, in relation to a rural Alberta fentanyl superlab with more than $300 million worth of drugs and precursors."

"The Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team’s organized crime and gang team dismantled the drug lab in a rural area near Aldersyde, about 50 kilometres south of Calgary, on July 7, 2021, in a bust they called Project Essence. It is among Canada’s largest fentanyl seizures. Almost a year later, that project has wrapped, with police arresting the 10 suspects at the start of this month."

Of the 10 people charged, 7 are from Edmonton and 3 are from Okotoks. Edmonton is red and white. CTV is reporting that police seized 27 kilos of fentanyl, 3,000 fentanyl pills, 4.5 kilos of crystal meth, 2 kilos of cociane and almost half a kilo of crack. That is huge.

This is harm reduction. This is law enforcement. When you refuse to enforce the law, innocent people suffer. These drug busts are something Alberta's gang task force does and something BC’s gang task force doesn’t do. Every province makes drug busts except BC. Ask yourself why.

May 25th a Hells Angels associate from Alberta was caught on a boat smuggling 650 kilos of crystal meth into Canada off the coast of Vancouver. Yet the BC Gang Task force doesn't arrest Hells Angels associates that sell drugs. They just want to stop members who don’t sell drugs from going on rides. The CFSEU had nothing to do with the bust. It was the DEA.

Jesse Deranger is First Nations. May 15th CTV reported on a new police task force on human trafficking on reservations in southern Alberta related to the drug trade. Okotoks is south of Calgary. Redd Alert is a First Nations gang that sell drugs for the Edmonton Hells Angels.

Canada Day and the Freedom Convoy

For Canada Day we broke out the kayaks and went to Widgeon Creek on Pitt Lake. There were lots of boats on the lake and lots of padlers on the creek - canoes, kayaks and paddle boards.
On the way back there was a canoe with a Canadian flag tied to a hockey stick.
When I came home there was a plane flying overhead with an advertising banner. That's pretty old school I thought so I read the banner and it said Freedom Convoy. Never Forget.

Food for thought. For me remembering the Freedom Convoy is to remember the huge display of public support for the truckers. It made us all proud to be Canadian. Then seeing the RCMP trample a disabled woman on horseback and seeing the police and foreign NATO soldiers stomp on the Canadian Flag and beat peaceful protesters made us all ashamed to be Canadian.

The police had the right to tow semis if they were illegally parked but they did not have the right to beat peaceful protesters. Police on Guard tried to remind police of their oath. Veterans4freedom stood for freedom and opposed violence. After James Topp completed his march to Ottawa at the tomb of the Unknown soldier, the police moved in and made some brutal arrests.
I don’t know what the suspects did to warrant being arrested but there was an excessive amount of police definitely using excessive force in a very look at me I’m a dick kind of way. That destroys public confidence and that is what they are paid to do. They are paid agitators just like the NATO soldier stomping on the Canadian flag. Ottawa canceled the permit for Police on Guard's picnic. The Counter Signal posted a video of the brutal arrest on Twitter but has since taken it off their website. It was disgusting and once again made me ashamed to be Canadian. That kind of arrogant violence against peaceful protesters generates an emotional reaction to fight back. I share those feelings but I stand down and record my dissent. I oppose violence.

I don’t oppose the use of force. I oppose violence. There’s a difference. The use of force in times of war is necessary. The use of force to uphold the law is also necessary. The Charter of Rights is the law the police are paid to uphold. If they break their oath and break the law, we do not take the law into our own hands. We record our dissent and appeal to the law. Lest we forget.

Fatal shooting in Port Coquitlam

The Vancouver Sun is reporting that "Coquitlam RCMP say they received a call at about 1 a.m. about a shooting in the 2700-block of Davies Avenue. When they arrived, officers found one man dead. Police have not released any details about the victim."

CTV is reporting that the body was found inside the home.

Supporters join James Topp as he arrives in Ottawa

Police vehicle 'riddled with bullet holes' after drive-by shooting in Penticton

The Kelona Now is reporting that "An RCMP vehicle has been “riddled with bullet holes” after officers were shot at in Penticton during the early hours." GMAFB. This is starting to get ridiculous. How low can Justin Trudeau go?

If I was a police officer, I'd be concerned about Justin Trudeau's obsession about reducing the minimum sentence for gun crime. If he was against gun violence he wouldn't be reducing the minimum sentences when people commit a crime with a firearm. Shooting a police officer is very serious. So is shooting up a police car. When Justin Trudeau reduces the minimum sentences for offenders who commit gun violence against the police we can see which side of the law he is on.

Two suspects dead, six officers injured after shootout at bank in Saanich, BC - Update

The Times Colonist is reporting that "Two suspects are deceased and six members of the Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team are in hospital after a shootout at a bank in Saanich today, police say. A shelter in place advisory remains in effect for the area of North Dairy Road to Cedar Hill Cross Road, and Richmond Road to Cedar Hill Road as officers search for a potential third suspect. Three of the injured officers are members of Saanich police and three are Victoria police officers, police said. A man in a camouflage jacket was seen lying motionless in the parking lot outside the Bank of Montreal at Shelbourne and Pear streets early Tuesday afternoon, after an exchange of gunfire following a report of people with weapons at the bank."

A shootout with the police following an armed robbery at a bank. That is very abnormal for here.

OK so I don't post pictures of dead bodies. That's not the way I roll. Yet this doesn't look like a dead body. When you enlarge the picture, it looks like a mannequin's head.
We know they used mannequins on ventilators in their Covid hospital coverage but that can be explained by the fact that they use mannequins to train people how to use the ventilators. There is no explanation for having a mannequin at a real crime scene.

Now I realize anyone can Photoshop a picture. The blood smear that was added to the scene could have been erased from the original picture. Yet that would be kind of had because the one cop's shadow is right when the blood smear should be. As we have seen from crime scene photos in Mexico, in real life when someone is shot there is a lot of blood. It's not like in the movies. When they bleed out on the street there's lots of blood.

It is possible the blood streak came after the person died since it is down hill from the body. It is also theoretically possible someone added a mannequin's head to the body with photoshop. Yet there remains one puzzling fact. Look at how calmly the police are causally standing around a dead body right after six fellow officers have been shot and wounded.

Usually, whenever there is a shooting, police are on high alert. We saw a gang shooting at the Vancouver airport when the shooter fired a couple of shots at a police car that was chasing them. The police car instantly backed off its pursuit. CTV posted a cell phone video of police running to the scene right before numerous shots were fired which has been taken down.

The video showed several police officers running to the scene in a big clump. They weren't in formation and they weren't tactical. They were frantic. As soon as they went out of view, a whole lot of shots were fired. Granted these weren't Emergency Response Team members.

The point is, they were frantic. I've seen a couple of female cops in Surrey lose their sh*t when the possibility of guns being used were mentioned. It's like Chris Tucker's observation in Rush Hour. The police officers standing around the dead body in the picture, look way too casual for the seriousness of the situation. Especially the female cop standing right beside the dead body with the mannequin's head. The body language is suspicious.

Why aren't they releasing the names of the dead suspects?

They found a potential explosive device. GMAFB. Was it another pressure cooker? Saanich PD has been dirty as f*ck since Chris Horsely sabotaged the Lindsay Buziak murder investigation.

Update: CTV is reporting that "A woman who was trapped inside a bank during a robbery and fatal shootout with police near Victoria on Tuesday says there is one question still plaguing her a day later: Why didn't the gunmen just leave with the money?"

"Fryer said she is still haunted by the eerie energy of the armed suspects, who she believes had managed to rob the bank but seemed in no rush to leave. 'I just don’t know what they wanted. What were they waiting for? she pondered. 'They had got all the money. They could have just taken the money and left right away. They would have been in and out before the police got there.'" They robbed the bank. They had the money. They could have left but they waited for the police to arrive. That is suspicious. Sounds like a prelude to more gun control legislation.

Semi automatic assault rifles are already restricted weapons. That means they are registered and pined at five rounds. No one commits a crime with a registered firearm because it is traceable. They use throwaways smuggled in from the US because they can't be traced. In this case, just like in the Nova Scota mass shooting, the guns were not registered and were not legally obtained.

Canadian couple murdered in Mexican resort named

The UK Sun is rpeorting that "RaphaĆ«l HuppĆ©, 44, and 38-year-old Fannie Lorrain, of Quebec, Canada, were found dead in a hotel or condominium in Playa del Carmen on Monday. It’s reported that they appeared to have died from stab wounds to the neck."

Previously the Natiopnal Post had reported that "A senior state official told Reuters the man, whose identity has not been made public, was wanted by Interpol. 'He was not a tourist,' the official said, adding that the man had been in hiding in Mexico for about four years. Local papers have identified the man as a Quebec native who first entered the country in 2016."

He had outstanding warrants for fraud. Sounds like he ripped off the wrong people. Nevertheless, slitting his girlfriend's throat was nasty. Why you gotta be like that?

Hells Angels clubhouse forfeiture ruling appealed

Dr Spin is reporting that "A lawyer for the B.C. Civil Forfeiture director says a judge who rejected the government seizure of three Hells Angels clubhouses in 2020 made errors that should be overturned on appeal." I agree.

"Brent Olthuis told a panel of B.C. Appeal Court justices on Monday that there are grounds to reverse the findings of Justice Barry Davies and simply order the properties in East Vancouver, Nanaimo and Kelowna be forfeited to the government without a costly second trial."

"On June 11, 2020, Davies ruled that the director had not proven his claim that the clubhouses would be used for unlawful activity or that they play an important role in enabling and empowering members of the Hells Angels to engage in serious crime for financial gain. And Davies sided with lawyers for the biker gang that part of the B.C. Civil Forfeiture Act allowing for property to be seized based on possible future criminal use should be struck down because the section falls outside provincial jurisdiction."

That whole possible future criminal use argument was insane. The evidence that the Kelowna clubhouse was used for criminal activity was overwhelming. What they may or may not do in the future was irrelevant. Yet the Kelowna executive has changed and they now have a clean slate.

I told them they should have given back the Nanaimo clubhouse and seized the Kelowna clubhouse by way of consent. The East Vancouver clubhouse should have then be adjudicated on its own merit. Now they've lost everything. A corrupt judge along with a corrupt gang task force has empowered that criminal organization's drug trade.

The CFSEU don't care about the Hells Angels that sell drugs. They just want to stop the ones that don't sell drugs from going on rides. Michael Kramer and the ATF deja vu - Damion Ryan.

I don't care what the world does, I care what I do

In Vancouver we haven't had much of a spring. Every day has been cool and cloudy with no trace of the sun. One person said where is the sunshine and I said the sun is still shining. The problem is the clouds in between us and the sun. It didn't feel like June and you'd never know summer has begun. Then on Thursday that all changed. As I left for work in the morning the rising sun was just above the horizon and shone brightly. I thought to myself bright light. The unfamiliar sight was a refreshing change. I do like experiencing the seasons. It helps me keep track of the time.

When I was riding to work and the sun burst over the horizon, I could visualize the light illuminating everything in my life. It doesn't matter what everyone else is doing. It matters what I am doing. I am not responsible for what everyone else does. I am responsible for what I do. I live with the consequences of my decisions not everyone else's. Too many people worry about what everyone else is doing while they completely ignore what they themselves are doing.

Right now everyone is talking about the rising inflation and the pending recession. I don't remember getting such a dramatic warning of a coming recession before. Perhaps it's the new doom and gloom era we now live in where the media teaches us to be afraid of our own shadow. Yet as the sun rises, the shadows flee and disappear.

Nevertheless, right now we are all struggling. We're all picking up overtime shifts just to make ends meet and we're not getting any further ahead. Yet just as a small helm benefits a large ship during a storm, we can have faith that if we keep working and keep facing the waves, one day the storm will subside and the sunshine will eventually return. As Mother Teresa would say, behind the dark clouds the sun is still shining.

Although I oppose abortion, I don't think it should be illegal. I think we should discourage it but at the end of the day it is a personal choice we have to make and live with. We are responsible for what we do not what others do. If someone tells us to do something we are responsible for doing what they say. In this life we are all free to choose but we are not free to avoid the consequences of our choices. All our choices have consequences, good and bad. Not all consequences are bad. You make a good decision and you instantly receive peace of mind knowing you did the right thing. There is no joy in materialism or greed. Wickedness never was happiness.

They say prostitution is the world's oldest profession. What consenting adults do behind closed doors is their business. I am concerned with the exploitation and extortion that goes along with that industry. Forcing someone to do something against their will is human trafficking. Kidnapping someone's children to force them into prostitution is heinous. That's what Sonny Barger did.

Otis Garret was convicted of running a prostitution ring in San Fransisco for the Hells Angels called the Love nest. He wasn't acting on his own, he was on club business. Just like the Garden of Eden and the Swedish Touch. He kidnapped Margo Compton's daughters to prevent her from leaving the business. Then when she went to the police and was ready to write a book, Sonny Barger approved her murder and the murder of her twin seven year old daughters.

Sonny Barger is not an American hero. He is an American POS. Yet so are the ATF because they are just as involved in that exploitation. Sonny Barger approved Margo Compton's murder to hide that secret and prevent that book from being published. Yet when this life is over, her book will be an international best seller. Everyone will see him and see what he did. The same with the ATF.
