David Eby's speech on white collar crime - Update

Everyone is raving about BC's new Attorney General's recent speech on political corruption and white collar crime. Although I admit it clearly is a step forward, I will caution that is it only a baby step and if not followed up with two other crucial steps, it will represent one step forward two steps back. Everyone knows money laundering is a problem at BC's casinos. This is nothing new.

When a RCMP task force on organized crime issued a report exposing that fact, the BC Liberals disbanded the RCMP task force. You want to know the truth? You can't handle the truth. BC Rail wasn't just about laundering public assets at fire sale prices to campaign contributors like they did in Campbell Heights. It was about money laundering in real estate from drug trafficking. The RCMP know that. They are the ones that said we'll drop the drug trafficking charges if you renew our contract. I kid you not. The criminal culpability in BC's white collar crime runs deep.

The problem with David Eby's speech on white collar crime is that it focuses on money laundering not on drug trafficking. This is exactly what the compromised BC Gang task Force wants. Instead of confronting drug trafficking, they simply want to focus on seizing the proceeds of crime.

Operation Phoenix Revisited

To understand organized crime in Canada we need to reexamine the RCMP's involvement in Operation Phoenix. Operation Phoenix was a regional task in BC that targeted the Hells Angels. One of the targets in that task force was Weird Hal Porteous, the flaming idiot in the ridiculous music videos that featured Rob Shannon and Jody York.

The RCMP sabotaged the operation preventing any convictions because it was jealous their jurisdiction was given to a provincial task force and they wanted the jurisdiction back which they succeeded in doing. Only after they got the organized crime jurisdiction back, they stopped pursuing organized crime just like Bob Paulson admitted in his exit interview.

Allen Dalstrom was the Canadian version of Chuck Pillon. They were both police officers who objected to upper management's refusal to confront drug trafficking. They were both fired as a result. Only Allen Dalstrom received a 2 million dollar settlement to ensure a gag order was in place preventing him from discussing the police misconduct he discovered.

I have never spoken with Allen Dalstrom but I don't have to. The facts are there for everyone to see. Julian Sher's book The Road to Hell: How the Biker Gangs Are Conquering Canada said it all. Dalstrom was fired after it became known that he was one of the sources in that book. In it he said when it came to organized-crime investigations, the RCMP had done “f--- all here for 25 years”. So once again we see someone fired for telling the truth. The Ontario Biker Enforcement Unit is successful because the RCMP doesn’t have anything to do with it’s administration.

So after the RCMP successfully sabotaged Operation Phoenix and prevented any Hells Angels from being charged, what have they done to confront organized crime? Absolutely nothing. In fact, they have done the opposite. They interfered with the Western Wind bust and prevented David Giles from being prosecuted. Then came the Kelowna Summer Jam.

Pat Fogarty was a literal Buffoon in charge of the BC Gang task force. He went to the media and said the Hells Angels aren't the problem, it's the other guys we have to worry about. Afer the OMGU and the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit proved him wrong the BC Liberals disbanded the OMGU and reorganized the CFSEU. The RCMP have not touched the Hells Angels after the Kelowna Summer Jam when the OMGU was disbanded.

If David Eby and the new NDP government are sincere about their desire to confront organized crime they need to bring back the OMGU and put organized crime under provincial jurisdiction. If they don't do that, all the dramatic fake news will simply be sound and fury signifying nothing. Seizing the proceeds of crime without confronting drug trafficking is just another aspect of the organized crime fraud that we currently face.

Confronting the Octopus

Danny Casolaro was an American Journalist that investigated how organized crime tied in with the government and referred to what he found as an octopus with tentacles reaching everywhere. He was murdered just like Gary Webb. Michael Riconosciuto worked for the CIA and became their fall guy when he exposed the CIAs connection to the Octopus.

Two officers from the RCMP investigated Michael Riconosciuto's case and said "We got further than anyone else ever did on this case," he says, "and nobody outside of law enforcement will ever know what we found because no one in law enforcement can ever tell anyone what we found." Michael was finally released from prison June 2017 but re incarcerated in August 2017.

If David Eby and the new NDP government are sincere about their desire to confront organized crime they need to create a provincial task force that investigates organized crime and their connection to the RCMP. The only difference between BC and Quebec is that Quebec has a task force that investigates organized crime while BC doesn't.

The New York Model was simple and was executed on two different levels. First they launched the Mollen Commission to investigate police corruption. Then they confronted drug trafficking on the street. It was successful. I saw it. That is the model I support.

BTW the police finally released the name of the associate murdered in Maple Ridge.


  1. Start shooting bad guys wherever they are found and start firing cops who joined for a steady paycheck who won't hunt down those who need to be hunted. If you don't have the balls and aggressiveness to strap up and go hunting, you're part of the problem. I fucking KNOW there are some cops like that up there, there have to be. Those you keep, 90% of the rest you get rid of, the 10% can hang back at the station and run the radio's or something. Start hiring veterans out of the Infantry, the MP's, the Para Regiment and JTF-6 to be police officers instead of "recent college graduates with a background in team sports". If that phrase sounds familiar it's because it's VPD's Chief Constable of a few years back defining their ideal recruit. You need hunters and gunfighters. But that sounds so aggressive...:gasp:

    Fucking pathetic. But that's what "social re-engineering" has brought you. Enjoy....

    1. That's actually from the Twilight Zone. Shooting people without a trial is what that lunatic in the Philippines started and is a huge leap towards Communism. Common sense would balance the extremes and simply implement the New York Model which targeted drug trafficking instead of ignore it and formed a commission to investigate police corruption. The right to due process is a Constitutional right. When we become enemies of the Constitution we become enemies of a free republic.

  2. I don't disagree with anything you've said, but you know full well that if ANY of the powers that be wanted that to happen, it already would have. They don't. They want the downward spiral to continue. Reasons for that would be an interesting conversation.

    Democracy is not a suicide pact. At least it shouldn't be. Let me ask you this. How bad would it have to get before you entertained a solution that would actually eliminate the problem(s)? How long does the average citizen have to suffer and have their life be so much better than it should be do deal effectively with people who have been a life long problem for themselves, their fellow citizens, and their country? Goes for traitorous politicians to. With no effective fear of meaningful punishment, you get what you have now.

    I wasn't speaking of actual execution outright. Mostly not anyway. A lot of these guys have guns and will resist. Or will do something else that marks them as worth extra attention.

    These jokers you have collecting $90K and pretending to be the police need to go, and in their place you need guys who can bring bad guys to justice by aggressively investigating and arresting them. It's not all on them either though, you also need to get rid of all the crooked judges as well.

    1. The corruption in the Christy Clark government made the New York Times. We have a new provincial government now. It is possible they will create a Regional task force to investigate organized crime. If they don't, then nothing has changed. However, the president of the Philippines is a raging lunatic. No one supports that model.

  3. Yeah the PI is not an example to follow. Nor any other third know. ;-)

    A regional task force to go after OC would be awesome in concept, but....who do you staff it with?? They same guys who are part of the problem to begin with? And do they disband (or sabotage) it if/when these guys make progress? Past history being an indicator of future performance and all that kind of stuff....

    I haven't seen Christy (or anyone else) doing the perp walk yet....

    1. OCA was working fine until the RCMP sabotaged it.
