Prime Minister Jean Chretien shows a protester who’s the boss, 1996

It takes only one man to commit a crime but an entire community to conceal it. - Krishnamurti

Evil is unspectacular and always human, and shares our bed and eats at our own table.         - W.H. Auden

……….

(Readers may wish to consult the July 8, 2016 news posting atwww.itccs.org .)

Dateline: Ottawa, Today – Somewhere in the Prime Minister’s Office

Little Justin Waterhole suddenly stopped preening himself at his mirror after a hurried rapping sounded at his door. It turned out to be one of his senior assistants.

“You’d better read this, Mr. Prime Minister” panted the flunky, thrusting a piece of paper at him.

Justin read it.

Hardly the brightest light bulb on the Hill, Justin needed an explanation.

It’s an internal CSIS memo sir, from April of 1998. Somehow it got leaked out”

Uh huh? said Justin’s confused bovine gaze. The assistant, whose name was Dick, explained.

It describes the Chretien containment operation, sir … You know, regarding the Indians”

What Indians?” squeaked Justin nervously.

The residential school Indians, sir. This memo laid out how they were to be stopped.”

Oh yeah …” murmured the Prime Minister, glancing back at the mirror and adjusting his hair. “I remember hearing something about that. I think Daddy mentioned it once.”

Dick looked surprised but said nothing, hoping his boss would continue. But Justin only gave him a sad and empty smile.

Mr. Trudeau sir, this memo implicates a former Liberal Prime Minister, Jean Chretien – one of your close political backers, sir – in a plan to harass, shut down and even do away with witnesses to residential school crimes. It’s being called a black ops plan of state terrorism, sir”

Justin frowned slightly and remarked,

Who’s saying that?”

I told you sir, the memo was leaked from somebody in CSIS. It went out on July 8. The CBC may look into it. The thing’s being quoted all over the internet!”

Huh. Weird. I never saw it” replied Justin.

“The internet freaks are even running the news of the memo alongside that picture of Mr. Chretien choking that protester, sir …”

Justin laughed and uttered,

Yeah, that was cool …”

Dick drew a heavy breath and continued,

Well, anyway sir, this is bound to come up in question and answer period in the House, and you’d better be ready with an explanation!”

 Justin frowned again.

Oh yeah? Well, like what should I say?”

I’ve already drafted something for you, sir. You’ll deny everything”

Sure, okay” Justin replied, gazing furtively back at the mirror.

Dick seemed perturbed, but Justin didn’t seem to notice.

Don’t you want to know why, Mr. Trudeau sir?” asked Dick.

Why what?”

Why you have to deny the existence of the memo or the Chretien black ops plan, sir” Dick replied, his patience thinning.

Yeah, okay, why?”

Our friends at Cameco and Power Corp would be very upset if you didn’t , Mr. Prime Minister”

Justin stared blankly at Dick.

Uranium, sir” Dick explained. “Hydro electricity”

Justin actually shrugged, as Dick wondered painfully to himself why he had ever turned down the Bay street consultancy offer.

Well don’t leave me hanging here, Dick …” exclaimed Justin, donning the same cute smile he flashed at reporters.

Mr. Chretien and several of his senior cabinet ministers were all heavy investors in those companies, sir. They still are. Their plan to silence the Indians wasn’t just a matter of political expediency.”

Justin still didn’t get it. Dick continued,

The natives are in the way, Mr. Prime Minister. They’re even more in the way when they start yapping to the press about mass graves at residential schools. I assume your predecessor knew he had to do something about that before things got out of hand.”

Wow” said Justin.

Yes sir” replied Dick.

………………………..……..

The dialogue is fictitious, perhaps, but the story is not.

The novelist William Styron wrote that the only thing holding back absolute hopelessness in life is either a happy marriage or a good book. And I would add, or kicking the biggest butt in town.

I first heard about the CSIS memo in question the day the news broke from Europe, where the opaque Canuck government insider who leaked it is apparently hiding out under police protection. I guess he or she just doesn’t trust Canada’s reputation for niceness, or something.

So what does it mean, anyway, when an entire nation and its churches kill off countless children as a matter of course and then with equal deliberation buy off or knock off the eye-witnesses?

My naïve answer is that whatever is responsible for such a crime has to be brought to an end. Stopped for good. Dismantled. Broken into little pieces so it can never harm again. Then something has to arise to replace it that is not murderous and criminal.

This attitude makes me a very unpopular man, here in Canada. People don’t like talking to me anymore, including my friends. Hell, even my political sympaticos won’t even write to me directly but do so through somebody else, since – you know – they might get targeted too, right?

I have a lot to say to our mystery man or woman who leaked the CSIS memo about the Canadian government’s plan to crush the truth tellers of the church-state massacre of brown children. Like for one thing, friend, stay in Europe.

You see, Canada’s too pleasant a place for whistle blowing. Canadians just don’t like a disturbance. We’re like the two grinning figure heads I once saw adorning a Haida longhouse, depicting slaves about to be sacrificed at a totem pole raising.Just keep smiling, everyone, and it’ll all be okay!

Twenty years ago I was stupid enough to think that publishing deadly truths that indict the powerful would change things more than window dressing. Dumbness has its purpose, of course, since none of my digging into those mortuary holes of Indian kids would have happened at the hands of a wiser man. But world enough and time hopefully awakens even the most die-hard activist to what he is swimming in. It took a lot of kicks to my head by the beast called Canada for me to grasp what was really going on.

When I was stupid and approachable, and deeply engaged in uncovering residential school atrocities, the government-pumped CBC used to phone me up every few months to see what I’d unearthed about our homegrown slaughter. Some new, eager-sounding voice would assure me that the CBC was planning a “major story” on the Indian school crimes (not their word for it, of course). Then after pumping me for information they’d always vanish: gone as quick as a Member of Parliament’s promises, and never a word of what I’d shared and proven would ever grace the evening news.

Nowadays, of course, I don’t get any such calls from the media. The official story is set in stone.

All of that ran through my head this week when I had passed on to me that a Montreal CBC reporter was “interested” in interviewing the CSIS-memo stool pigeon. Uh huh.

Don’t you hate it when the bad guys still try to treat us like idiots?

I’ve learned not to take it personally anymore. Reporters, politicians, Popes or Prime Ministers are all the same, especially during their first term on the job: they want to make a splash and be remembered. And the way to do that here in the Great White North is to keep things placid, dead and most of all, uncontroversial. Nobody in a prison likes too many questions, after all.

It was a brave soul indeed who released the CSIS memo on the Chretien plan to silence forever the witnesses to our own Genocide and shut down any inquiry into the same. I only hope their valor is matched by a trace of political realism that even the most seasoned Canadian activist seems to lack when it comes to the nature of their own country.

Realistically, the truth teller in question should expect nothing better from his revelation than a dead-end “official inquiry” into the matter by the very people who are guilty. That’s the Canadian way.

That said, I encourage the same whistle blower to go ahead anyway and kick the biggest butt here in town with everything he knows. My only regret is that by doing so he may attain the honor of becoming an even more hated figure in Canada than I am.

Let Willie Pickton Speak: Revealing the Bigger Picture of Canada’s Genocide

by Kevin D. Annett

Inline image 1

 “Pickton was the straw man set up for everyone to gawk at and hate while the real killers got away. The arrangement was vast and orchestrated from the very top”. – Grant Wakefield, former CSIS agent and undercover operative at the “Piggy’s Palace” killing site,  August 4, 2011

“It’s not just our women who are going missing. Whole families are disappearing, starting with the children.  Our northern communities are being wiped out for their land by big corporations and their hired RCMP thugs. It’s the residential school genocide taken to its next step.” – Carol Martin, Vancouver, September 12, 2008

I’ve never met the alleged serial killer Willie Pickton, but he and I have this much in common: we have both just published books that have Canada’s power brokers worried.

Willie’s book, Pickton in his Own Words, claims that he was framed by the RCMP for the murder of dozens of mostly aboriginal women. My own book, Murder by Decree: The Crime of Genocide in Canada, shows that such organized race killing is endemic to this nation and carries on today.

Like anyone who’s worked for many years on the streets of Vancouver’s downtown east side, I learned early on and firsthand of the deep complicity of both the RCMP and Vancouver police in the rape, disappearance and killing of local, mostly aboriginal women. These killings are no more random or aimless than were the murder by decree of more than 50,000 Indian residential school children. They were all in fact targeted executions designed to wipe out traditional native families to steal their lands and complete the final extermination of their nations.

Canada is doing its best to hide these racial murders and protect the real killers through sanitized “inquiries” run by the very groups responsible for our homegrown genocide. Our two books throw a damning spotlight on this cover up.

My book exposes the most blatant of these show pieces – the so-called Truth and Reconciliation Commission” (TRC) that found nobody guilty for the residential schools massacre – by publishing evidence suppressed by the TRC that proves that genocide in Canada by church and state was deliberate and institutionalized from the beginning, and has been massively concealed. And Willie Pickton’s book threatens to derail the government’s controlled in-house “Inquiry into Missing Native Women” by discarding his assigned role as official scapegoat for the organized racially targeted killing of Indians.

Regardless of Willie Pickton’s real or imagined involvement in these killings, he – like me – is a target of a huge public hatred and fear incited by those who stand to lose by the truth coming out. Insiders to a crime, after all, are always the most dangerous of witnesses. But no amount of fear mongering can mask these inconvenient truths:

1. Policemen, crown prosecutors and politicians were all present at Piggy Palace parties where women were tortured and killed, as routinely as “visiting dignitaries” at residential schools abducted and murdered children;

2. At least three other body dumping sites have been identified in Vancouver where Dave Pickton was seen depositing human remains: sites that both the police and media refuse to investigate as steadfastly as they ignore the twenty eight documented mass grave sites of residential school children;

3. As with the TRC cover up of the residential school genocide, every effort to extend the web of criminal complicity past lone individuals has been deliberately stopped and suppressed by the courts and the police;

4. The “official” dead body count, whether of residential school children or aboriginal women today, has been kept ludicrously low, contrary to all the evidence; and

5. Lawyers for aboriginal victims’ families have actively colluded with police and government to suppress any evidence suggesting a wider, systemic crime and not merely an episodic one.

It is truly remarkable how uniform is the pattern of official malfeasance and its accompanying obfuscation, whether years ago or today.

A west coast​ Indian Agent in January, 1940 expressed this design perhaps more honestly than most bureaucrats when he wrote, after the standard cursory inspection following the death of children at the United Church residential school in Ahousaht, B.C.:

“As this was the property of the church, care was taken to avoid too close an inquiry.”  (P.D. Ashbridge to Indian Affairs, January 17, 1940)​

Honesty at the top or not, indigenous nations in Canada are still as firmly in the cross hairs of big money and their state accomplices as they ever were. Foreign investors with a stake in the riches of Canada’s western and northern regions – especially Chinese cartels – are the force behind the reign of terror being unleashed on aboriginal families to dispossess them of their lands ​and their children​. The RCMP is the hired gun working for this Mob and the courts stand by to smooth the arrangement, while Ottawa dissimulates and prattles on about “healing and reconciliation”.

For these reasons and more, the systematic killing of native women and children across Canada will continue, for it is not only a profitable venture but the key to wiping out such a targeted culture over time. And so too will carry on the silencing of voices opposed to this genocidal paradigm and its official narrative. So don’t expect either my book or Willie Pickton’s to hit the Canadian bestseller list, or even to survive to a second edition.

That’s all the more reason, of course, to get our books.

A narrative of extraordinary power and importance, Unrelenting is the long-awaited account of how one man’s courage toppled a Pope and changed the face of the world. 
 
The twenty year saga of Reverend Kevin Annett to expose Genocide and child torture by his own Canadian culture has been recounted in part in other testimonies, but not until now has the entire story been told with such depth and humanity.  
 
In his own words, and drawing on a rich body of evidence and experience, Kevin recounts a Herculean struggle to force a buried truth into the light of day, and to prosecute Church and State for their unspeakable crimes against the innocent. 
 
Written as both historical record and spiritual reflection, Unrelenting moves past the bare facts of a global crime to the deeper question of how moral people are to respond to official malfeasance in their own back yard. Its passion and devotion reveal a man who has found his real vocation as “a doer of the word, and not merely a speaker”.  
 
In the manner of the author’s own cited 18th century ancestor, the persecuted English free thinker Peter Annett, this work is written not as mere commentary, but to arouse the readers and summon them to change. 
 
Reverend Kevin D. Annett has twice been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. He is an award winning author, broadcaster, film maker and human rights figure. He lectures widely in North America and Europe and serves as a community minister and spiritual adviser to many communities including the International Tribunal of Crimes of Church and State.

The Great Canadian Cover Up, Part Two: The Missing Womens’ Inquiry, or Making the Getaway look like a Bust

by Kevin D. Annett

We always knew a fix was coming down when the local Chief of Police started public grandstanding and making noise to the press about holding “criminal inquiries”. That was his way to warn his mob buddies to make their getaway and hide their shit before they were really exposed. Governments are no different. - Retired RCMP officer George Brown, Vancouver, 2006

 

It not just our women who are going missing. Whole families are disappearing. Our northern indigenous communities are being terrorized and wiped out for their land by big corporations and their hired RCMP thugs. It’s the residential schools genocide taken to its next step. – Carol Martin, Vancouver, 2009

 

 crime

…………….

It was fitting that when I read tonight of the new Liberal government’s grandstanding announcement of yet another “inquiry” into missing aboriginal women I was standing across from the Georgia hotel in downtown Vancouver. Native prostitutes go into the Georgia all the time and are never seen again, since it’s also a private club for the Vancouver police and senior judges. But most people don’t savvy the connection, any more than they understand government “inquiries” for what they really are.

 

Hot on the heels of the immense camouflage called the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), the diminutive Prime Minister Trudeau the Lesser has launched his own smoke and mirrors effort, equipped with all the right phrases. This one is aimed, not surprisingly, at that other genocide that’s giving Canada such a bad name and damaging its global credit and tourism rating: namely, the restrictively labeled “missing aboriginal women” matter. And as a neophyte who still looks like he doesn’t need to shave, wee Justin Trudeau has got to make this latest farce look convincing.

 

Of course, behind the political imperative of a new facelift for the nation is the reality that, like all “official investigations” emanating from Ottawa, this “Missing Women’s Inquiry” will have no teeth and no balls, nor the legal power to do anything besides make flaccid “recommendations”. Did somebody say TRC, Part Two? 

 

For one thing, the very groups that have for years blocked and disrupted genuine efforts to find those responsible for the disappearances are the same ones in charge of this “inquiry”. Foremost in this regard is the misnamed “Native Women’s Association of Canada” (NWAC), a wholly funded, owned and operated subsidiary of the government, set up like the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) to divert and hijack genuine indigenous movements for change. NWAC will be leading the Inquiry, so don’t hold your breath.

For another, the “Inquiry” has already announced its plans to “work closely with the existing police investigations” into missing women. The what? There are no such investigations; or more accurately, whenever one begins, it gets shut down very quickly by those same police bodies. But don’t believe me. Ask a cop himself, like George Brown.

 

George is a west coast aboriginal man and a retired RCMP officer with over twenty years on the Force. In the spring of 2006, he and a few others tried setting up their own “Community Inquiry into Missing People” based in Vancouver’s downtown east side neighborhood where so many native people were and are disappearing. Their efforts lasted not even six months before the Vancouver police literally put a gun to George’s head and told him to back off.

 

As George remembers,

 

“From the eyewitnesses and even a couple of insiders, we were getting very close to finding out which senior cops and politicians were involved in the human trafficking and even some of the killings. That’s when the boot came down. I had to stop what I was doing if I wanted to live, it was that simple.” (1)

 

Annie Parker was one of the eyewitnesses. Kidnapped and tortured by Vancouver cop Bruce Michaelson into working for the police-run prostitution and snuff film operation called “the Hooker Game”, Annie was taken to parties where young, mostly aboriginal girls were drugged, raped and killed on camera. The girls were then disposed of by Michaelson and one of the Vancouver serial killers, a Canadian military officer named Jean-Guy Boudrais. At these parties Annie saw Vancouver mayor and now Senator Larry Campbell, former Prime Minister Paul Martin and a host of lesser politicos. (2)

 

That said, anyone who works with west coast aboriginal people for very long learns quickly the real reasons why so many of them are going missing. It’s not so much because of lone demented psychopaths – although such monsters are certainly useful to the real culprits – as due to the corporate hunger for the bountiful native-held lands and resources of central and northern British Columbia. And these corporations get a lot of help not only from the feds themselves but aboriginal politicians closely tied to the government and NWAC, like “chief” Ed John, himself an accused woman-killer. 

 

Ed John made his early fortune and political capital by evicting fellow Carrier-Sekani tribal members off their land for companies like Alcan and Interfor, and trafficking native children into the homes of wealthy pedocides. He also helped shut down the only independent tribunal into Indian residential schools in the summer of 1998 by terrorizing its witnesses through his hired goons. Ed’s efforts so impressed Ottawa that they eventually made him Canada’s “aboriginal representative” (I kid you not) at the United Nations. (3)

 

Ed’s also done his own share of raping and killing people, according to eyewitnesses like Les Geurin of the Musqueam Indian reserve in south Vancouver, where Ed lives along with his wife, national AFN chief and government hack Wendy Grant. The Musqueam reserve, according to Les who has uncovered some of the bones, is also a regular dumping ground for the remains of the very missing aboriginal women who will be “investigated” by Ed John’s buddies on the NWAC and its upcoming “inquiry”.

 

Of course, that kind of collusion between the suspects and the investigators is as Canadian as inside stock trading, or as the infamous quote from Indian Agent Gerald Barry who, upon concluding his “investigation” of the death of children in the United Church’s Ahousaht residential school in early 1940, wrote to his bosses in Ottawa,

 

“As this was the property of the church, care was taken to avoid too close an inquiry.” (4)

 

Everything points to a stupendous cover-up of thousands of missing native people that is already in the works, since the lawyers will once again be running the “Missing Women’s Inquiry”. The ones whom William Shakespeare urged us to kill have had long experience in hiding bodies on Canada’s west coast.

 

In 2004, after the lawyers for the families of some of Vancouver’s missing women were given forensic evidence that women’s remains had been uncovered from a garbage pit on Ed John’s Musqueam reserve, the lawyers steadfastly ignored it – naturally, since the new evidence upset the Big Fix agreed upon by lawyers on both sides, that a single “lone gunman”, Willy Pickton, had killed dozens of Vancouver women. Indeed, multiple body dumping sites would suggest a bigger criminal conspiracy than sorry Mr. Pickton, whom the police had already chosen as their only suspect. Cameron Ward, the main lawyer for the families, didn’t even return the calls or emails of Les Geurin, the Musqueam maintenance man who’d discovered the bones and had them analyzed and positively identified as being human. (5)

 

Ottawa has clearly learned its lesson from the Pickton trial, which revealed that Vancouver police knew for years of the killing center known as Piggy’s Palace in Coquitlam, and not only did nothing but were caught attending the all night raping and snuffing parties going on there. So to conceal the police and high level political involvement with the Picktons – who were in truth simply the body disposal crew for wealthier men who were doing the actual killings – the government is buying itself insurance for the latest “inquiry” by making a big show of “involving” families of the victims in the process. Such a move will head off any potentially independent critics and muckrakers who last time uncovered the police-Pickton connection. But such “involvement” will come at the price of silence and complicity in what will inevitably be another big getaway for the real killers. (6)

 

At the end of the day, no Canadian government will ever get to the bottom of and stop the trafficking and killing of aboriginal people, any more than child rape will ever be officially halted, and for the same reason: whenever the police dig very deep they find they’re investigating their own bosses and their friends. As Nishga activist Carol Martin reminds us about the Disappeared of Canada, “It’s just the residential schools genocide taken to its next step”. 

 

What is necessary is for the community to take action on its own, over and against the established authorities, as George Brown and others have done. Indeed, launching such independent, citizen-based inquiries with the power to arrest and prosecute the ones killing our neighbours is the only recourse left for Canadians who want to do more than simply remember the Disappeared. To do that, we’ll first need to establish our own common law courts and step outside the sordid “crown” jurisdiction entirely, nourished by the will and freedom to make such a change happen. But considering our sorry track record to date, that kind of daring by Canadians is as likely as Justin Trudeau naming the names of all the child trading politicians.

 

Nevertheless, do stay tuned. It can only get ever more amusing, to those with eyes to see and hearts to revolt.

An Apology Changes Nothing:

Canada and its Churches must be prosecuted and disestablished for their proven Crimes against Humanity

http://youtu.be/crcoqquD6Oo

(A Special Op Ed piece submitted to major world media)

By Rev. Kevin D. Annett, M.A., M.Div.

Special Adviser to the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State

Recently, the Canadian government officially acknowledged that thousands of Indian children died under its care in the infamous, church-run Indian residential school system. (New York Times, June 3, 2015) The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, Beverley MacLachlan, has stated publicly that genocide did in fact take place in these schools.  And yet despite this acknowledgement, and the proven intent by Canadian church and state to wipe out non-Christian Indians under the cover of parochial schooling, the perpetrators will apparently face no consequence for their crime.

In what is a clear and gross obstruction of justice, Canada and its churches have since 2008 indemnified themselves from any liability for the deaths of these children, silenced eyewitnesses and hidden or destroyed key evidence, and actively impeded a genuine investigation of the Indian residential schools atrocities. As one observer of the government’s stage-managed “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” (TRC) noted last year,

“Canada is spending $68 million to create an appearance of disclosure while censoring from the TRC record any evidence that may implicate itself and the churches in the death of children. Lacking even the power to subpoena or prosecute those responsible for what is obvious genocide, the TRC can best be described as a failed attempt at cosmetics.”

Realistically, one can expect such manipulation and cover-up by any regime caught in its own malfeasance. Canada is hardly unique in that respect. Nevertheless, under the United Nations’ Genocide Convention, which Canada ratified in 1952 and to which it owes compliance, all signatories to the Convention must actively “prosecute and punish” Genocide once it has been proven. Not only has Canada not fulfilled this obligation under international law, but it has actively subverted this moral and legal requirement, and impeded justice.

For a growing number of Canadians, it is difficult to justify our allegiance to a government that is operating as a rogue body under the Law of Nations. That law – especially the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court – absolves citizens from allegiance to their own government when the latter is perpetrating or concealing war crimes or Crimes against Humanity, as Canada is clearly doing. This fact should give solace and encouragement to the nearly sixty percent of Canadians who want an end to their ties with the Crown of England – one of the main actors of the Canadian Genocide.

More broadly, the authority of “Canada” and its crown courts as a whole is in question, operating as they are as unaccountable bodies that flout the rule of law. Time and again, these courts have denied and circumvented litigation brought by aboriginal people that attempted to charge Canada and the Crown with genocide. As one frustrated native litigant said to me in 1998,

“Was Auschwitz just about rapes and beatings? Then how come the mass murder of our people is?”

It is a fact that Canada, the British Crown, the Vatican and the Roman Catholic, Anglican and United Church of Canada were responsible for sustaining an annual death rate in the Indian residential schools of nearly fifty percent for over a half century: a fact that makes highly suspect the “official” claim of only 4,000 deaths in these schools.The routine and deliberate spreading of tuberculosis among healthy children, the systematic rape, torture and killing of non-Christian Indians, the standard practice of sexually sterilizing children at puberty in special Indian hospitals, and the continued destruction of native families and their lands and resources: all of these proven crimes point to an enormous and very intentional Genocide.

Indians in Canada today continue to die at the same levels as they did during the residential schools era. The routine trafficking of native children, murder of Indians by police, and desecration of ancestral lands by resource-hungry corporations is as much a feature of Canada as are the stereotypical red coated Mounties.

No-one is obligated to fund or obey the laws of a criminal regime like Canada. The Nuremberg precedents establish that such a regime has lost its right to lawfully govern: a fact that is fueling a growing movement to create a constitutional Republic in Canada that is free of the murderous legacy of Church and Crown.

Sir Edward Coke, a champion of the Common Law against the arbitrary rule of the British monarchy, declared to King Charles in 1628,

“Be you ever so high, you are not above the law”.

This unalienable truth is more than a warning to tyrants and criminals in high office: it can and must be an operating principle when dealing with our home grown war crimes. The only question now is what agency will compel such justice, and disestablish criminal institutions like those in Canada?

The answer, of course, is We the People: the source of all government, justice, and law.

“Doppelganger” drama of a post-Revolutionary Canada will begin production this fall

Breaking Media Release – July 7, 2015
banishment proclamation

New York City:

Fresh on the heels of an official Canadian acknowledgement of the genocide that killed thousands of Indian children, the man who brought it all to public light has written a hard hitting play about the crime that reviewers have already called “a stirring masterpiece and whodunit … akin to The Man in the Glass Booth”. (Betty Richeson, Republican News Service)

The play is “Doppelganger”, and will commence production in September. Its protagonist is a former Canadian clergyman on trial for war crimes at the hands of an aboriginal government in a post-revolutionary Canada.

The author of the play is Kevin Annett, who led the twenty year campaign to expose and prosecute crimes in Canadian Indian residential schools.

“We’re putting out a casting call in September and will begin production that same month” Kevin announced today from New York City, where he is lecturing and reading from his new novel Samuel Wedge: Memoir of Necropolis. (Author House, 2015)

“Doppelganger is a play that turns the tables on the ones who got away with the crime, and places them in the docket. Naturally, Canadian theater companies have been loath to produce it. But considering the timeliness and undeniability of the issue, this is a work that cries out for viewing.”

Kevin Annett is the co-producer of the historic award-winning documentary film Unrepentant, which when released in early 2007, won instant acclaim and helped force the Canadian government “apology” for residential schools the following year. Kevin has thrice been nominated for the Nobel Peace prize by American scholars.

Actors and theatrical groups can view the work and contact Kevin Annett at hiddenfromhistory1@gmail.com or by leaving messages at 386-492-2395 in America.

The Canada Comedy Hour (upcoming Radio Broadcast)

Welcome to The Canada Comedy Hour: Where Credibility and Credulity gets stretched thinner than the 49th parallel!

(Canned music and applause)

Voice: Hello everybody! I’m your handsome host, Wink Harper!

(More applause)

Wink: Tonight’s show is brought to you by the friendly folks at Cameco Ltd., our very own Canadian Uranium company. As they say at Cameco, we dig, and you pay. (laughter) And tonight’s Show is entitled … Meet the Sinclairs!

(Canned Applause)

Wink: We’re pleased to have as our guest the man who chaired the Truth and Reconciliation Commission: Murray Sinclair! (scattered applause) Murray’s the former judge who helped put the spin on that not so nice matter of dead little Indians. Bummer, eh? But no worries, Canada! The whole story’s really quite funny! And that’s why we’re here tonight, everyone! To make things positive! (applause) So without further ado, let’s bring on Murray Sinclair, who’s appearing tonight with the full approval of his legal counsel.

(applause)

Murray: Hi Wink.

Wink: Welcome to the show. (pause) Uh, are you able to fit into that chair, Murray?

Murray: Yeah, it should … ow, shit! (pause) Yeah, it’s okay now.

Wink: So Murray, let’s get to it. What’s the deal with all those, well, let’s call them ex-pupils?

Murray: You mean the Indian residential school children?

Wink: Sure. Them.

Murray: Well, I have a statement here about all that from our lawyers … (pause) Aw shit, now where the hell is it?

(sound of rustling papers)

Wink: Take your time, Murray.

(laughter)

Murray: Ok, got it! (pause, clears his throat) “According to our painstaking research and without acknowledging any prior knowledge of or complicity in the alleged incidents, our Commission has concluded that some children died in the residential school system.”

Wink: Some?

Murray: That’s right.

Wink: How many is some?

Murray: Well, I haven’t checked with our legal department about the specifics, Wink …

Wink: Bloody lawyers, eh Murray? (laughter) So what, did your solicitors dig the graves? Don’t answer that, Murray. I wouldn’t put anything past a lawyer.

(laughter)

Murray: (chortling) You should try living with one.

(greater laughter)

Wink: Hey, that’s good, Murray! You’re a real funny guy! (laughter) So anyway, about those dead children …

Murray: There were two of them. I think.

Wink: Two?

Murray: Yeah, well, one for sure. We’re not certain about the other one.

Wink: Two dead children. (pause) Wow, Murray, that’s great detective work. (laughter) So how much have you hit the taxpayers for all that, you chubby faced enemy of the people?

(laughter)

Murray: (sheepishly) Oh, well, it’s somewhere around $68 million, I guess.

Wink: Holy shit, Fat Man! That’s $34 million a corpse!

Murray: No, now just wait, Wink! We had lots of other expenses on the TRC!

Wink: Such as?

Murray: Well, our offices, for one thing. And all the paperclips. You wouldn’t believe the paperwork we had!

Wink: Uh huh.

Murray: Then there were all the luncheon meetings …

Wink: Yeah, we heard about those. Mighty fancy spreads you laid out for yourselves, Murray. Fresh trout, filet mignon, baked Alaska, and all the booze you could stand!

Murray: Well, that’s just your standard Canadian government protocol, you know.

Wink: No doubt. (laughter) I see you’ve got a sweet tooth too, Murray.

Murray: What?

Wink: A Ms. Elsie Two Feathers says she saw you scarf down more than a dozen pastries during just one session of your TRC forum. (laughter) Elsie and her friends even gave you an Ojibway Indian name after that …

Murray: (proudly) Really?

Wink: Yeah. “Eats Many Muffins”.

(Laughter)

Murray: (indignantly) I’m on a weight loss program, just so you know, Wink.

Wink: You could have fooled me. (laughter) Anyway, Murray, let’s move on to talk about the “G” word.

Murray: The what?

Wink: Genocide, Murray.

Murray: Oh, we never use that term, Wink. We say cultural genocide.

Wink: Say, what?

Murray: Cultural genocide. It sounds nicer. Not so hard on the ears.

Wink: Or on the bank accounts, eh Murray? (laughter) Alright then, Muffin Man. We’ll play in your ballpark. What is this “cultural genocide” thing, anyway?

Murray: It’s when we didn’t appreciate their language.

(pregnant pause)

Wink: Yeah? And?

Murray: And nothing. We were just, you know, kind of insensitive to the Indians.

Wink: Right. And by “we”, you mean who exactly?

Murray: Well, the white people, of course.

Wink: But you’re an aboriginal, aren’t you, Murray?

(pause)

Murray: Oh. Right. I forgot. (laughter) Well, okay, I meant, they were insensitive, uh, to us. The Indians.

Wink: Is that why those kids died, Murray? From insensitivity?

Murray: Well, no. They caught a cold, or something.

Wink: The two of them.

(Another pregnant pause)

Murray: You know, come to think of it … (sound of more rustling papers) … Right. I guess there was more than two.

(laughter)

Wink: Really? How many more?

(pause)

Murray: Well, like I said, Wink, I have to check with the lawyers first …

Wink: Right. (laughter) Say Murray, if you need some help with that, you could just ask the people who put them in the ground.

Murray: What? (pause) Who do you mean?

Wink: The churches, numb nuts.

(laughter)

Murray: Oh, no, we couldn’t do that! I mean, my own wife is a United Church member!

Wink: Apparently. (laughter) You much of a church goer, Murray?

Murray: (cautiously) Sometimes. But just on certain holidays …

Wink: So you never asked the churches where those dead kids ended up?

Murray: No.

Wink: That’s great police work, Murray. Leave out the prime suspects. (laughter)
Murray: (impulsively) Now look, Wink, don’t blame me for everything! Things were arranged long before I showed up!

(Yet another pregnant pause)

Wink: Oh yeah? Like, what kind of arrangement? (long pause) Murray?

Murray: Yes?

Wink: Are you saying the whole TRC was fixed?

Murray: That’s pretty judgmental of you, Wink. We prefer to call it healing and reconciliation.

Wink: Meaning, what?

Murray: If you start accusing people of things, that just causes bad feelings, Wink.

Wink: Well, we wouldn’t want that, Tonto. (laughter) Now Murray, I hear you’ve been personally attacked by certain people …

Murray: (angrily) Oh yeah? Who?

Wink: Let me finish …

Murray: If it’s someone called Denise I completely deny all of her allegations! I was nowhere near that hotel on the night she claims!

Wink: Excuse me?

(pause)

Murray: Oh. Sorry. Never mind.

(laughter)

Wink: Actually, I was referring to some of the public critics of the TRC …

Murray: (moaning) Oh, not him again!

Wink: What?

Murray: Him! That smart ass out on the west coast! He’s just a no good son of a …

Wink: Murray, now be nice!

(laughter)

Murray: Sorry, Wink, but I get emotional when his name comes up …

Wink: I never said any name …

Murray: Oh but you will! That’s how he works! He uses that know-it-all mouth of his to worm his way into the media …

Wink: Can you tell us who you mean, Murray?

Murray: … and he uses those good looks and fairly nice body of his to woo people to his side …

Wink: Uh, Murray …

Murray: It’s the old sex appeal gimmick! It works every time! Even I almost fell for it!

Wink: Really?

Murray: Sure! There I was, at the Bayshore Inn one night, my hand on the phone, ready to call up that little prick and ask him out … I tell you, he’s seductive, that one. His soft compelling voice with its masculine undertone, brimming with self-confidence and virility … Jesus! If only he worked for me! I tell you, I’d whip him into line … Yeah …

(A very pregnant pause)

Wink: Murray?

Murray: What?

Wink: We were talking about the TRC. And its critics.

(pause)

Murray: Oh yeah? Oh, right. Well, that’s him. He’s the opposition.

Wink: Who?

Murray: Jesus H. Murphy, Wink! Are you covering for that little ex-Reverend? (pause) Are you working with him too, that fucking hottie?

Wink: Okay, Murray, why don’t we switch gears for a moment …

Murray: Sure. Fine. Just let him get away with it again …

Wink: Who’s getting away with what, guy?

Murray: (screeching) Him! He’s out there, lying about me, teasing me … as if he’s the only one who’s ever published statistics or occupied a church …

Wink: Oh. I get it.

Murray: What?

Wink: You’re talking about …

Murray: No! I refuse to hear his name! That’s what we told the Globe and Mail! You print his name ever again, you quote that little white prick, and you’re gonners! Slam dunk!

Wink: The Globe and Mail?

Murray: Yeah! And the CBC!

(pause)

Wink: Wow, Murray. This is getting interesting.

Murray: What do you mean?

Wink: Why don’t you tell us more. I mean, about the CBC.

Murray: What’s to tell? Nobody wants a lawsuit.

Wink: You asked the media not to cover this adversary of yours, this …

Murray: Don’t!

Wink: Okay, this unmentionable ex-Reverend from the west coast.

Murray: Thank you.

Wink: So they agreed?

Murray: What?

Wink: The CBC. The Globe. They agreed not to mention this man anymore, or his work …

Murray: Well of course, dummy. Have you seen him much in the news?

(pause)

Wink: What else did your media buddies agree not to mention, Murray?

Murray: Oh, come on, Wink.

Wink: Come on, what?

Murray: You don’t expect me to answer that, do you?

(pause)

Wink: No, I guess not.

(pause)

Murray: Can I go now?

Wink: Jesus, Murray. My apologies. This has become a real downer of a show.

Murray: It sure has. You were getting almost, well …

Wink: Almost what?

Murray: You know. What’s the word … (pause) Investigative!

Wink: (laughing) Not a chance, Murray. This is Canada!

(laughter and prolonged applause)

Wink: Now that’s more like it! (pause) Murray, any final comments for the audience?

Murray: Yes. Don’t believe what you might read about me and somebody named Denise.

Wink: Our lips are sealed, Murray.

(prolonged applause, canned music)

Wink: Thank you Canada! And we’ll see you next week, when we’ll have as our special guest, the CEO of GoldCorp, a really nice guy named Charles Jeannes, who’ll be dispelling all those bad things people are saying about him and his company … and as an added treat, Charlie will also be doing his own comedy Improv!

(applause)

Wink: So like we say here on the show: Keep positive, Canada! And keep smiling!

(canned music)
