Once a generation, if we’re lucky, a prophet arises among us who will relentlessly call us out on our insane abuses of the innocent and vulnerable, and who will also enlighten a path for those among us who are ready to surrender our ignorance and complacency. For us, this prophet is Kevin Annett. There are others, thankfully, but none I know of whose call is as searching and clarion as his.
In Unrelenting, Kevin Annett moves us along seamlessly from his own roots, to their flowering in his eviction not only from the church ministry but also from life as he knew it, to the international movement he has stirred. Naming his passionate detractors and attracting wounded witnesses and a few survivors of the genocidal Canadian holocaust, he airs children’s buttons and bones, charred and buried in dirt, entangled in the roots of trees planted to cover the crimes. He bares the horrors hidden underneath the robes that swagger within the courts, churches and palaces.
Kevin Annett details the long trail of progress through truth-gathering and truth-telling to strategic action, when he spearheaded the creation of the International Common Law Court of Justice (ICLCJ). Public summonses were issued, not to the usual scapegoats, but to the usurpers of royal thrones and to the papacy itself. No guns, no bombs, just the power of the truth ferreted out, fearlessly told, and finally administered by common law. The world knows about the pope’s resignation; now the inside story is told.
The paradox of enlightenment is that the greater the beam the greater the darkness that is exposed, and the darkness revealed in Unrelenting is of such a depth that, even while cheering the toppling of the usurpers of power and decrying the murders of the little ones, we would gladly look the other way, returning to our preoccupation with our own births and deaths and all that goes between.
We can conspire to kill the messenger, lash out in resistance, avert our eyes, or just stand in awe. Or we can take in the stark revelations and allow them to permeate our reality and influence the ways in which we proceed. How we cross that Rubicon and where we alight on the opposite shore will differ for each of us, with the caveat: there is no return. Such is the effect ofUnrelenting upon the sincere reader. Yet, the author does not leave us in the furnaces or the hells he has exposed; there is a path home.
Few authors can present their own narrative with as much coherence and flow, born of relentless honesty and unfaltering focus. Time and what the rest of us do will reveal the ongoing effects of what is past; and whether what is done as recorded in Unrelenting remains the most important story in memory, or the beginning of a global healing that is long overdue.

“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.

BISAC: Biography & Autobiography / Political
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.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 15, 2015
International Tribunal will investigate “the Disappeared of Canada”, past and present, and lay criminal charges – Canada’s government, courts “too complicit” to conduct such an inquiry
London, New York, Ottawa:
A special inquiry into the disappearance of generations of indigenous people in Canada will commence on January 1, 2016, under the auspices of an international Tribunal of jurists and human rights groups.
The International Tribunal for the Disappeared of Canada (ITDC) will be established under the law of nations as an investigative legal body with the power to subpoena and prosecute. Its creation is necessitated, according to its mandate, “because of the inability of the Canadian government or its courts to neutrally and effectively investigate crimes in which they are complicit”.
The new Tribunal will be allied and work with families of the disappeared and grassroots community groups across Canada to ensure that “the entire truth is revealed concerning why aboriginal people have been targeted for extermination for generations, and to criminally charge the forces responsible in competent courts of justice.”
The ITDC was established in response to the Canadian government’s recent announcement of its own “Missing Women’s Inquiry”, and in the wake of Canada’s efforts to officially conceal its historic genocide of Indians through a stage-managed “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” (TRC).
“Experience has shown that when faced with human rights crimes within their own borders, Canadian governments of every political persuasion rely on very restricted and controlled in-house ‘inquiries’ designed to conceal more than they reveal” commented a spokesman for the Tribunal today in London.
“We have no confidence that the presence of a few token aboriginal figureheads to head this latest state-managed ‘Inquiry’ into missing women will yield anything more than did the previous cover-up known as the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which charged no organization or individual with a crime despite their admitted responsibility for the death of thousands of children.”
Commencing in January, the ITDC will be opening three Canadian field offices in Vancouver, Winnipeg and Toronto, and will issue regular progress reports to the media and public in the course of its investigations. The Tribunal will build upon the work of previous independent inquiries into genocide and missing people across Canada, and anticipates the release of its own official “counter report” to the Canadian government’s TRC and its upcoming “Missing Women’s Inquiry”.

Searching for the Disappeared: Mohawk mass grave, Brantford, October 2011
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
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.

In addition, a former Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) operative named Grant Wakefield who was an undercover informant at Piggy’s palace met with the author during 2011 and gave his own eyewitness account of seeing the politicians mentioned and senior RCMP officials participating in the rape and killing of aboriginal women there. See the author’s upcoming book Unrelenting for more details. (www.itccs.org , www.KevinAnnett.com)
After nearly a year of investigations and relying on undercover informants, the ITCCS has established that at least two Canadian senators, a former cabinet minister in the Harper government and three senior church officials are actively engaged in trafficking children for sexual and sacrificial purposes in the Ottawa-Montreal area.
The ITCCS has also learned that these same accused men are complicit in the 2014 murder of Ottawa police inspector Kal Ghadban, who was investigating the disappearance of children at the hands of the accused; and that key ITCCS investigators in Canada, including Rev. Kevin Annett, are also being targeted for elimination by them.
The six accused men are Senators Larry Campbell and Patrick Brazeau, former Harper cabinet minister Denis Lebel, Quebec Catholic Cardinal Gerald Lacroix, and Anglican Bishops Fred Hiltz and Bob Bennett.
The full details of the exhaustive investigation by a special ITCCS team were shared this past weekend with the ITCCS Central Council during its closed gathering near Montreal. In response, the Council has placed Rev. Kevin Annett and other Canadian investigators under a protective quarantine, and announced plans to convene a new common law court in Canada in the new year to indict and prosecute the six accused men.
The Council will be issuing a full public statement to the global media this week, along with excerpts from the Investigative Report.
A Council spokesman said today,
“All of these accused men have been under investigation for some time. Senator Campbell has been named by police sources in Vancouver as a major suspect in the disappearance of aboriginal women at the notorious Pickton farm. Senator Brazeau has already pleaded guilty in a Quebec court to charges of sexual assault with a deadly weapon and drug trafficking. Denis Lebel, his friend Cardinal Lacroix, and Bishops Hiltz and Bennett have all been named by government and church insiders as active participants in the Ninth Circle ritual killing of children, at secret catholic church facilities in Montreal and Rome. We will be issuing indictments against all of these men, based on sworn testimony.”
Kevin Annett will be issuing his own televised statement to the public to accompany the ITCCS media release.
