Why Voting in Canada is an Act of Treason – and Criminality

A Pre-Election Wake up Call by Kevin D. Annett

September 29, 2015


When I was barely fifteen years old I was nearly expelled from school after I loudly urged the other kids at University Hill Secondary to not pay their student council fees. It was my first overtly political act.

What prompted my call was that I had just learned to my outrage that our ostensibly democratically elected student council was in fact governed by an adult supervisor, the school’s Vice-Principal, who had to approve any of its decisions, and who could summarily dismiss the entire council if he so chose.

Welcome to Canada.

None of my fellow students back then seemed especially comfortable with self-government, any more than do most Canadians today. My fifteen year old self was called nasty names and told to stop rocking the boat when he impudently suggested that those we elect should be accountable to us, and not to an omnipotent father figure. For adolescents, and the Canadian electorate, prefer to defer to some august supervisor with the power to overrule their wishes, whether that shadow ruler be a Vice-Principal or a Governor-General. After all, every Member of Parliament we elect takes their Oath of True Allegiance and obligation not to We, the People, or to a Constitution, but to Queen Elizabeth the Second and all of her descendants.

In any responsible system of government, handing over one’s authority to unaccountable servants of a foreign ruler is normally considered an act of sedition. But such crime is the law here in Canada: a ritualized loss of sovereignty we like to call federal elections. And once again, we’re all set to repeat this treasonous farce on October 19.

Now, I don’t particularly care what shade of political opinion we choose to sell out our nation with next month, whether that be Tory Blue, Liberal Red, NDP Orange or Groovy Green. These politicians, like our high school puppet student government, all play the same deceitful game. And none of them who you elect on October 19 will represent or be answerable to you one bit. Just like at my old high school, our democratically elected politicians can be dismissed at any time by just one guy: in Canada’s case, a colonial fossil called the Governor General, whose official title is the Queen’s representative and official Head of State.

Forty five years ago when I dared to suggest that we refuse to fund a lie posing as democracy, I experienced my first taste of public rebuke and banning. None of my fellow high schoolers wanted to even look my way after I spoke my heresy. Whether then or now, slaves never like to have their chains pointed out to them. But adolescents and Canadians all have to grow up eventually; and the first act of maturity is to see things as they are, and not as we’ve been told they are.

The old codger who actually ran our student council all those years ago was a  stumbling fart named Arthur Lower, who seemed harmless enough, despite his tendency to fall asleep during council meetings. But if Art had have been caught and tried for raping some kid or stuffing a body in a garbage dump somewhere, I’d like to hope that committing such a felony would have disqualified him from being our student council’s  head of state.

Sadly, no such simple logic or justice applies here in Canada. For as it turns out, an equally tottering figurehead named Lizzie Windsor who is the CEO of our nation is in fact a convicted felon, duly prosecuted by an international court. On October 10, 1964 while in Kamloops, British Columbia, Queen Elizabeth kidnapped ten aboriginal children who were never seen again; and she also approved the murderous residential schools genocide that killed another 50,000 or more children. But still that royal criminal sits on her throne, and is deferred to and sanctioned by every elector, politician, cop and judge in Canada.

Does that sound right to you?

You know, it’s not every day that any Johnny and Susie Canuck can commit both treason and the aiding and abetting of a convicted criminal simply by marking an x on a ballot. We are, after all, allotted only about ten such scratches of democracy in a lifetime. Taking responsibility for one’s self, and one’s own nation, seems to be an onerous burden for many Canadians, who generally prefer to leave weighty matters of state and politics to child rapists, psychopathic lawyers and real estate speculators. And so while surrendering our sovereignty to yet another criminal in high office is not  an especially un-Canadian thing to do, it is really becoming all too banal, and unjustified.

However, we can all do something different, believe it or not. We can actually take back our nation.

In his book The Prince, Niccolo Machiavelli warned those of us who contemplate creating a new order of things that we will only succeed if we are armed, and if necessary we force the people to believe in the new way. Unarmed prophets, Machiavelli says, will always fail, for they must rely on the constant good will of the people, who are by nature fickle and easily turned. I’ve learned that hard lesson many times over. And so even now, when a new Republic is being envisioned and established to replace the old regime of Canada, the fickle crowd waits, and hesitates, even when nearly 60% of them believe that the crowned head of Britain must indeed fall in the dust.

Back at University Hill Secondary school, things finally did change for our body politic. Two years after I called for an end to our puppet student government, we achieved precisely that. Without waiting for anybody’s approval we established instead our own weekly Students’ Assembly, consisting of anyone who wanted to attend, debate and vote on any matter in the school. For the first time, we experienced self-government and the breath of liberty, but only because we had created it for ourselves.

What adolescents can do, even Canadians can attempt. Our new Republic will be won from the ground up, by establishing and maintaining such popular Peoples’ Assemblies that will draft and enforce the laws and Constitution of our new society. And so instead of voting away your liberty to a corrupt foreign tyranny on October 19, shut down or shun the voting stations and convene your own local Assembly that will elect delegates to a national Republican Congress.

That kind of direct sovereign action will be our answer to all of the puppets and the tyrants. It’s called genuine democracy. It’s called the Republic of Kanata. And it beats slavery, every time.

An Apology Changes Nothing:

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


(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.

Canada hides its Genocide to Conceal ongoing Crimes

This week, Canada and its churches publicly whitewashed their killing of tens of thousands of indigenous children with an “official report” that exonerates the perpetrators, and hides continuing genocide . But according to Kevin Annett, who has exposed the Canadian Holocaust for over 20 years, Christian Canada and the British Crown are now morally and legally nullified, and a new Republic is lawfully warranted .

Digging up the Crime: The Witnesses Speak
Mohawk elder Bill Squire commences dig for missing children
Mohawk Anglican school, October 2011
This Sunday, May 3, Radio Free Kanata uncovers crimes by the church and crown of England in Brantford, Ontario – and how the guilty were brought to common law trial.
Generations of children were ritually raped, tortured and killed at the Anglican church’s Mohawk Indian school in Brantford, and thrown into mass graves nearby. But in 2011, those graves were opened for the first time, by Mohawk elders and people like Lori O’Rorke, who was part of an International Tribunal’s inquiry into crimes at the school.
Lori joins us on this Sunday’s show. And this month, other activists in Ontario are continuing the work to arrest the church officials responsible for these killings and their concealment: a campaign sponsored by the Republic of Kanata, its Sheriffs and its High Court of Justice.

The Weekly Voice of the Republic is Officially Launched

First Broadcast of Radio Free Kanata a “thrilling new start”





March 2, 2015


A Manitoba farmer, an Algonquin native woman, and host Kevin Annett took to the airwaves yesterday to inaugurate the official Voice of the Republic of Kanata: Radio Free Kanata.


“I was captivated. Thank you! What a thrilling new start to the taking back of our country!” wrote one listener from the west coast.


The first program featured Theresa Harrison and Katie Stoqua describing their efforts to establish the Republic under common law, and expose deadly crimes and fraud by the “Canadian” government and its churches.


Both women are signatories to the Proclamation of January 15, 2015, that lawfully established the Republic. (www.kanatarepublic.ca)


“We need a new deal, an end to all this corruption” said Theresa, who farms near Brandon, Manitoba, and who has led a campaign to free the falsely imprisoned common law educator Dean Clifford, who has been held without charges for over a year in Brandon Penitentiary.


“I’ve learned that many Canadians are waiting for something like the Republic, they’re sick of the system. We have to make contact with them face to face and show them there’s an alternative.”


Katie Stoqua described her life as a native woman and the refusal of “white” canadians to face the crimes of their own churches. A former Anglican church member, she quit last year after learning of the Indian residential schools genocide, and the “Holyrood Agreement” that places Anglicans under the Church of Rome and its policy of protecting child rapists.


“I tried leafletting members of my church about everything and I got such incredible hostility and hatred. People there seemed more upset that I was disturbing their day than they were about tens of thousands of children being killed in their residential schools.”


The next Radio Free Kanata program, on March 8, will elaborate on the vision of Kanata as a nation freed of its genocidal legacy. Indigenous activists who are working with the Republic will describe their efforts to re-establish their traditional laws and nationhood in the face of Canada’s ongoing genocide against them.


Kevin Annett comments,


“On March 8, we’ll be reminding our listeners of Canada’s ‘Dirty Thirty’: the convicted war criminals of church and state who face citizens’ arrest for committing and concealing genocide in our country – people like Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Queen Elizabeth, and church leaders like Anglican primate Fred Hiltz”


The program will also feature regular reports by local Republic organizers and details of the campaigns to establish local common law courts and directly reclaim the nation.


“Kanata won’t be built in a day, but we have begun. Now it’s up to each of you, to go from being a listener to a participant” said Kevin Annett.


Please tune in and spread the word of the newest voice for change and recovery in the land known as Kanata.


Radio Free Kanata airs every Sunday at 3 pm pacific, 6 pm eastern time at www.bbsradio.com/radiofreekanata . Contact republicofkanata@gmail.com to participate, and see www.kanatarepublic.ca .

Twenty Reasons, and 50,000 more, why you should join the Republic of Kanata

digMohawk elder Bill Squire commences ITCCS forensic dig at a mass grave of children killed at the Anglican Mohawk school, Brantford, Ontario, October, 2011

The subject of an upcoming Grand Jury investigation:

1. Nine year old Vicky Stewart of the Tsimshian nation was killed at the United Church residential school in Edmonton on April 9, 1958 by school matron Ann Knizky, who hit Vicky over the head with a two by four. The RCMP refused to press charges against either Knizky or the United Church, and threatened Vicky`s family with imprisonment if they pursued the matter.

2. Margaret Sepass was raped and then beaten to death by an Anglican priest named John Warner on December 5, 1969, at St. Michael’s Indian school in Alert Bay, British Columbia. Margaret was nine years old. Her burial site is unknown and John Warner was never charged.

3. On January 5, 1938, Albert Gray was beaten to death by Reverend Alfred Caldwell of the United Church of Canada when Albert took a prune from a jar without permission. Albert was eleven years old. His body was buried in secret behind the Ahousat Indian school and Alfred Caldwell was never charged.

4. On December 24, 1946, the same Principal Caldwell kicked 14 year old Maisie Shaw to her death down a flight of stairs at the United Church`s Alberni residential school, as witnessed by Harriett Nahanee. The RCMP covered up the murder.

5. On April 3, 1964, Richard Thomas was sodomized and then strangled to death by Catholic priest Terence McNamara at the Kuper Island Indian school. Richard was buried in secret in an orchard south of the school, and Terence McNamara, who is still alive, was never charged.

6. Elaine Dick, age 6, was kicked to death by a nun in April of 1964 at the Squamish Indian school in Vancouver. The RCMP refused to press charges when requested by the victim`s family.

7. Daniel Kangetok, age 4, was infected with an untreatable virus as part of a Defense Research Board experimental program funded by the Canadian military. He was left to die at the Carcross Anglican residential school in the Yukon, in February of 1971.

8. David Sepass, age 8, was pushed down some stairs by a priest at the Kuper Island catholic school and left to die, early in 1958.

9. A newborn Cree baby was burned alive by a senior priest at the Catholic Muscowegan Indian school near Regina in May of 1944, as witnessed by Irene Favel. The priest was never charged.

10. Susan Ball, age 5, starved to death in a closet at the United Church Edmonton residential school during the winter term of 1959, after being confined there by a church matron for speaking her own language.

11. Pauline Frank, age 8, died from medical experimentation performed by Canadian army researchers at the Nanaimo Indian Hospital in March of 1972. Her body was buried in secret on the grounds of the hospital, which is still restricted military property.

12. Albert Baptiste, age 9, died from electric shocks from a cattle prod wielded by a catholic priest at the Mission residential school over  Christmas in 1951.

13. Nancy Joe, age 14, died from involuntary drug testing by military doctors at the Nanaimo Indian hospital in the spring of 1967.

14. Lorraine white, teenager, was gang raped by United Church residential school staff and left to die, Port Alberni, summer of 1971.

15. Eighteen Mohawk children, all under the age of sixteen, were shot to death by Canadian soldiers outside Brantford, Ontario, in the summer of 1943, as witnessed by Rufus McNaughton. The children were buried in secret in a mass grave.

16. Johnny Bingo Dawson, an eyewitness to crimes in Anglican residential schools and a leader of protests against these criminal churches, died of injuries from a police beating after being threatened by them, in Vancouver on December 9, 2009. Official cause of death was alcohol poisoning, despite the absence of alcohol in his blood.

17. Ricky Lavallee, the eyewitness to Bingo’s beating by the Vancouver police, died of a blow to his chest in early January of 2011.

18. William Combes, an eyewitness to the abduction of ten children by Queen Elizabeth from Kamloops Indian school on October 10, 1964, was killed by a lethal injection at St. Paul’s catholic hospital in Vancouver on February 26, 2011.

19. Harriett Nahanee, the first eyewitness to a residential school murder to go public, died after mistreatment in a Vancouver jail, February, 2007.

20. Nora Bernard, the first aboriginal in Canada to sue the Catholic church for residential school crimes, was murdered in December of 2007 on the eve of Canada`s official spin doctoring of the residential school genocide.

 … and more than 50,000 others, all of them children.

No-one has ever been charged or tried under Canadian law for any these killings. And the criminal government and churches responsible for this mass murder have been legally absolved of any responsibility for them under Canadian law.

Nothing has been healed. Nothing has been reconciled. Justice has been exterminated as completely as these innocent victims.

Stop the criminal conspiracy known as Canada! Join the Republic of Kanata and help disestablish these criminal institutions of church and state. Simply, for these children: and for the ones who will die tomorrow if the murderers are left in power.

A Republican Grand Jury has been convened in Vancouver to bring charges against and arrest those responsible for these murders.
