|After the announcement by the T’kemlups First Nation of the discovery of so-called unmarked graves at the site of the former Kamloops residential school, many politicians, Indigenous leaders, and media have thrown aside balance, restraint, and caution, turning truth into a casualty.|
Public discussion about residential schools is now either totally false or grossly exaggerated.
Canada is accused of the most heinous crimes, with some even accusing our country of committing genocide.
A more balanced picture of residential schools is the only road to genuine Reconciliation.
True North is proud to partner with Dorchester Books to publish Grave Error: How the Media Misled Us (and The Truth about Residential Schools) by Dr. Tom Flanagan and Dr. C.P. Champion.
This excellent collection of first rate articles challenges the false narrative surrounding Canada’s residential schools and treatment of Indigenous Canadians.

|The Ontario Civilian Police Commission recently heard the appeal of Constable Michael Brisco on November 21, 2023, who is challenging his conviction and penalty for donating to the Ottawa Freedom Convoy in early 2022. This case raises questions about the Charter’s protection for freedom of expression, the right of police officers to support political causes while off duty, and the privacy rights of all Canadians. Constable Michael Brisco of the Windsor Police Service is a highly trained and respected police officer with no prior disciplinary record. He made a $50 donation to the peaceful Freedom Convoy protest through the GiveSendGo fundraising platform on February 8, 2022 – one day after an Ontario Superior Court Judge held that people could continue to engage in “peaceful, lawful and safe protest” in Ottawa so long as honking ceased. When making his donation, Constable Brisco did not identify himself as a police officer and did not contribute to the protest in his capacity as a police officer. After a six-day hearing in February 2023 before an Ontario Provincial Police Adjudicator, Constable Brisco was found guilty of discreditable conduct. Two months later, on May 18, 2023, the Tribunal ordered that Constable Brisco should forfeit pay for 80 hours of work as a penalty. With the support of the Justice Centre, on June 14, 2023, Constable Brisco filed a Notice of Appeal with Ontario Civilian Police Commission, challenging his conviction and the imposed penalty.|
Censorship Industrial Complex, Part 2: Michael Shellenberger Testifies Before Congress
The Censorship-Industrial Complex, Part 2
U.S. and foreign government support for domestic censorship and disinformation, 2016 – 2022
Testimony by Michael Shellenberger to The House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government
November 30, 2023
Chairman Jordan, Ranking Member Plaskett, and members of the Subcommittee thank you for inviting my testimony.
Nine months ago, I testified and provided evidence to this subcommittee about the existence of a Censorship Industrial Complex, a network of government agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, government contractors, and Big Tech media platforms that conspired to censor ordinary Americans and elected officials alike for holding disfavored views.
I regret to inform the Subcommittee that the scope, power, and law-breaking of the Censorship Industrial Complex are even worse than we had realized back in March.
Two days ago, my colleagues and I published the first batch of internal files from “The Cyber Threat Intelligence League,” which show US and UK military contractors working in 2019 and 2020 to both censor and turn sophisticated psychological operations and disinformation tactics, developed abroad, against the American people.
Many insist that all we identified in the Twitter Files, the Facebook Files, and the CTIL Files were legal activities by social media platforms to take down content that violated their terms of service. Facebook, X (formerly Twitter), and other Big Tech companies are privately owned and free to censor content. And government officials are free to point out wrong information, they argue.
But the First Amendment prohibits the government from abridging freedom of speech, the Supreme Court has ruled that the government “may not induce, encourage or promote private persons to accomplish what it is constitutionally forbidden to accomplish,” and there is now a large body of evidence proving that the government did precisely that.
What’s more, the whistleblower who delivered the CTIL Files to us says that its leader, a “former” British intelligence analyst, was “in the room” at the Obama White House in 2017 when she received the instructions to create a counter-disinformation project to stop a “repeat of 2016.”
The US Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Information Security Agency (CISA) has been the center of gravity for much of the censorship, with the National Science Foundation financing the development of censorship and disinformation tools and other federal government agencies playing a supportive role.
Emails from CISA’s NGO and social media partners show that CISA created the Election Integrity Partnership (EIP) in 2020, which involved the Stanford Internet Observatory (SIO) and other US government contractors. EIP and its successor, the Virality Project (VP), urged Twitter, Facebook, and other platforms to censor social media posts by ordinary citizens and elected officials alike.
In 2020, the Department of Homeland Security’s CISA violated the First Amendment and interfered in the election, while in 2021, CISA and the White House violated the First Amendment and undermined America’s response to the Covid pandemic by demanding that Facebook and Twitter censor content that Facebook said was “often-true,” including about vaccine side effects.
But the abuses of power my colleagues and I have documented go well beyond censorship. They also include what appears to be an effort by government officials and contractors, including the FBI, to frame certain individuals as posing a threat of domestic terrorism for their political beliefs.
All of this is profoundly unAmerica. One’s commitment to free speech means nothing if it does not extend to your political enemies.
In his essential new book, Liar in a Crowded Theater: Freedom of Speech in a World of Misinformation, Jeff Kosseff, a law professor at the United States Naval Academy shows that the widespread view that the government can censor false speech and/or speech that “causes harm” is mostly wrong. The Supreme Court has allowed very few constraints on speech. For example, the test of incitement to violence remains its immediacy.
In the face of human fallibility, and the complexity of reality, America’s founders and others worldwide long ago decided that it was best to let people speak their minds almost all the time, particularly about controversial social and political issues.
I encourage Congress to defund and dismantle the governmental organizations involved in censorship. That includes phasing out funding for the National Science Foundation’s Track F, “Trust & Authenticity in Communication Systems,” and its “Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC)” track. I would also encourage Congress to abolish CISA in DHS. Short of taking those steps, I would encourage significant guard rails and oversight to prevent such censorship from happening again.
Finally, I would encourage Congress to consider making Section 230 liability protections contingent upon social media platforms, known in the law as “interactive computer services,” to allow adult users to moderate their own legal content, through filters they choose, and whose algorithms are transparent to users.
I would also encourage Congress to prohibit government officials from asking the platforms from removing content, which the Supreme Court may or may not rule unconstitutional next year when it decides on the Missouri v. Biden case. Should the Court somehow decide that government requests for censorship are constitutional, then I urge Congress to require such requests be reported publicly and instantaneously so that such censorship demands occur in plain sight.
Having summarized the problem and potential solutions, I would like to now dedicate the rest of my testimony to the new information revealed in the CTIL Files.
Approximately 100 enthusiastic supporters of bodily autonomy and constitutional rights attended the Do No Harm Symposium in Hamilton Ontario on November 25, 2023.
Guest speakers included (in order of speaking appearance): pediatric dental surgeon Dr. Jennifer Hibberd, constitutional lawyer Michael Alexander, suspended emergency physician turned tireless freedom fighter Dr. Mark Trozzi, suspended physician Dr. Chris Shoemaker who originally supported the official Covid narrative but soon awakened from the illusions, as well as former member of the House of Commons and Ontario Party leader, Derek Sloan.
Dr. Hibbard and Dr. Trozzi had just returned from a freedom of health choice conference in Europe.
Dr. Hibbard outlined her extensive involvement internationally to promote the right to bodily autonomy. Her public exposure of the Covid fraud resulted in, “The Royal College of Dentists investigators raiding my office, then intimidating and interrogating my staff in my absence.”
Next up was Michael Alexander. He stated the following, to loud applause: “The right of freedom of expression has been guaranteed by the Supreme Court of Canada jurisprudence. You can say whatever you want, whether you are right or wrong… you have the right to say it, as we all have the right to decide for ourselves what is true.”
“Informed consent is not only a constitutional right, it is a fundamental human right.”
“To successfully privately litigate against the government, you must prove that they broke the law… which is, in fact, not easy to do.”
Unsurprisingly, third speaker Dr. Mark Trozzi garnered the greatest popularity among the crowd.
He lamented about his ongoing costly battle with his profession’s regulatory body, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) over his medical licence which had been suspended as a result of his writing medical exemptions for his patients upon request who feared receiving the Covid injections. Dr. Trozzi had willingly sold his home and abandoned his career as a successful emergency room physician to focus exclusively on researching Covid, steadfastly standing up for medical freedom and upholding the fundamental right of informed consent; thereby honoring his revered Hippocratic Oath which states, “First, do no harm.”
He told the audience: “I did not ever sign up to agree to kill people.”
“When the (Covid) shots came out, I read the ingredients, and quickly realized this is NOT a vaccine.”
“And I was just supposed to keep my mouth shut? For the sake of keeping my house and my car?”.
“I’m an emergency doctor, and THIS was an emergency!”.
His closing statement, “Whatever it takes, we WILL defend ourselves!”, was met with thunderous applause and standing ovations.
On stage next was Dr. Chris Shoemaker, who made a candid admission during his presentation: He revealed that he had initially agreed to receive 2 Covid injections early on in the ‘pandemic’ before he awakened to their significant danger and the true agenda behind the mainstream Covid narrative.
He continued, “When a Covid injection is administered, the body frequently reacts similarly as if there had been a major organ transplant: The body can attack itself.” This phenomena is known as a cytokine storm.
The last speaker, Derek Sloan, imparted hopeful reassurance for all in attendance before a Q & A session with the audience commenced.
“More and more people are waking up and realizing that Canada is broken.”
“Canadian citizens have the ability to take their power back, but the problem is that so many are still asleep.”
“An awake population is needed to take out the trash!”
The symposium concluded with a delicious supper.
Kudos to the organizers of this important symposium.

Wednesday, November 29 – Penticton School Board Action
Join a delegation questioning the use of the “myblueprint” program in schools!
Amie, the mother of an elementary school child, has managed to have the topic placed on the November 29 meeting agenda of the School District 67 board. She has prepared a presentation, and encourages all who can, to attend the meeting, too.
It takes a lot of preparation and courage to stand up in public, and our support is important for Amie. It also shows school board trustees, that we are watching and asking questions. And… this provides an opportunity for us to “get our feet wet” for when we may someday have the opportunity to speak at a public meeting.
1. Come and meet Amie at our rally this Sunday, November 26, where she will answer questions about “myblueprint” and her experience getting her issue on the agenda.
2. Show up at the School Board meeting next Wednesday, November 29, 2023, at 6:30 p.m. to support Amie
Address – 425 Jermyn Avenue. Arrive by 6 and gather in the parking area, so trustees can see us as they enter the building.
3. Prepare one or two short, clear, relevant questions in case there is time for audience participation.
4. https://myblueprint.ca/ Check this out if you wish. This website looks innocent, as does pretty much every product marketing message out there. Just remember how the globalists work. They tell us in advance what they are planning, then use whatever tools they can find to further their agenda, even those which may have been well-intended at their inception.

Political Prisoner Brad Love Mistreated By Cops at Start of “Harassment” Trial
November 23. Political prisoner Brad Love called CAFE from prison in Fort McMurray today. He is ill and the court adjourned for the day. Brad faces three year old charges for writing harassing letters to elected officials and for posting “Keep Canada White” stickers.
Up until Sunday, Brad was being held without bail in the Edmonton Remand Centre, He was awakened at 5:00 a.m. and told to get ready. The van leaving for another 12 hours. He was put in a holding cell. The van finally picked him up after 5:p.m. for the five and a half hour drive to Fort McMurray.
He is kept in a call at the RCMP station in Fort McMurray. “I am treated like shot,” he says. “The light is kept on 24 hours a day. Five days without darkness! My eyes are frazzled. This is sensory deprivation. My health is deteriorating. The system is designed to break you down,” he adds.
An observer familiar with the case comments: “They’re putting him through the ringer. This is abuse by process!”
On the first three days of the trail, various eyewitnesses were unable to identify him as the man who posted stickers. The Crown let one witness winge that he “became nervous” when he say “Keep Canada White” stickers near his home.
Brad was not allowed to cross-examine civilian witnesses. The basic right to confront his accusers was curtailed to save the snowflakes. A court appointed lawyer did the cross-examination.
Brad will be allowed to cross-examine police witnesses himself.
Brad looks forward to cross-examining a policewoman with a phone-book size folder of fingerprint evidence. “The found many samples of my fingerprints in my residence,” he laughs. “I’m going to ask her how much gathering the fingerprints from my house cost the taxpayers.
You can write to Brad Love:

Boycotting the Hamilton Spectator for its contempt for Palestinian life
While the Middle East coverage by the Hamilton Spectator has never been good, two incidents in recent weeks demonstrate that it is truly hateful toward Palestinians:
- On Thursday, Nov. 23 , the Spec REJECTED an ad listing the names of the 5600+ Palestinian children who had been killed by Israel and calling for a ceasefire. The ad was sponsored by CJPME and the Muslim Council of Greater Hamilton.
- Yet less than two weeks ago, on Nov. 11, the Spec PUBLISHED a full-page ad about the Israeli hostages held by Hamas, showing each of their pictures and calling for their release.
That the Spec would refusing an ad expressing sympathy for Palestinian victims, yet publish another ad expressing sympathy for Israeli victims shows that the Hamilton Spectator is NO LONGER WORTHY OF OUR BUSINESS.
Tell the Hamilton Spectator that you’re done with it! Please take 30 seconds to tell the owners and leadership at the Hamilton Spectator that you will henceforth 1) refuse to ever buy any issues of the Spec, 2) refuse to ever buy or place ads in the Spec, and 3) instruct your friends and family to do the same.
Organizer’s Tribute to Paul Fromm & Malcolm Ross, Speakers at CAFE Meeting in Nova Scotia, November 23
Maritimes AC hosted a private event and dinner with Paul Fromm and Malcolm Ross. Two men that have fought for our people for decades as warriors for truth, advocates for our people and political activism. These two gentlemen talked about their own place within the movement and our shared history, but what was truly impressive is how well kept up they were on current events and the struggles of our People today. They showed an energy and vitality that was still very much alive with the fires of truth showing that the grinding, thankless task of politically fighting for our People for decades has not slowed them down. Members discussed plans for the future, history, lineage, fatherhood, Christianity, Race, geopolitics and more.
It was equally important for Paul and Malcolm to see that there will be future torchbearers and because of men like them who laid the foundations of WN 1.0 that our struggle here today will continue. It was a hopeful evening filled with bold bright predictions for the future. As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. In both mind and body when our People come together we are made stronger.
