I launched lawsuit against CSIS and the RCMP...
Advertisements [?]
For all of the Americans on this board, you have no idea how much persecution goes on in Canada at the domestic level. I would love to have some organization in the U.S champion the Rights of Canadians against their intelligence/police agencies, many would be extremely shocked on how "Stalinisque" these organizations are. Neither the FBI nor CIA enjoy the types of suppressing and unchallenged power that CSIS and the RCMP enjoy in Canada, and I can assure you they abuse these powers on a regular basis. It is more about protecting their unchallenged power and avoidung embarassment than it is about National Security. Canadians AND Americans are jeopardized due to this immoral M.O.

As for my situation,this has been a six year battle with Canadian authorities which has culminated in the launch of this lawsuit in the Federal Courts after attempting to come to terms with these organizations on far too many occassions. It has been an exhausting and fruitless process which I should have discarded long ago in favour of a legal remedy. I was naive and idealistic in my estimation of the Canadian Intelligence community, it is quite apparent that accountability is non-existent to those who hide behind false mantras while increasing their budgets and the level of fear in Canadians year after year.

I have named CSIS, the RCMP and Vic Toews in the suit; the original targeting/manufacturing which began almost twenty years ago will finally come to fruition and in detail.

I know how many people feel about these organizations, many feel it is taboo to even mention them in an online forum. I fully understand this concern, and I do not blame many of you. The reality is that this is precisely why people should be speaking out more, not necessarily in this or any other forum, but by first educating themselves and then communicating with politicians so that some change may occur. Situations like mine are travesties which speak to a much greater issue in this country; I am absolutely sure that there are others like myself who have suffered unnecessarily, any improvement to the lives of victims of such abuses is paramount to a healthy, vibrant democracy.

In a nutshell; noone should have their life essentially snuffed out at the age of 17, especially when they have not murdered anyone or lifted a finger to cause harm to anyone else. I was and am a law abiding adult who worked hard to graduate from university, I even considered pursuing a career in the military; I know what the meaning of sacrificing for ones' country is, even as I decided to not pursue this direction. Noone should be used as a pawn to further the gain of individuals and the organizations that they represent. It has and is happening in Canada and nobody gets to know how it happens, which is why I take my lawsuit seriously and very personal.

Thanks for your time, I will update as the courts proceed.
