Canada Police State or Overzealous Border Patrol?

What’s going on in Canada these days? What the news/media is reporting isn’t nearly as interesting as what it isn’t reporting. Perhaps you are suspicious about whether our civil rights are on the line. Perhaps you don’t want to think about it at all and prefer to trust implicitly that our government is acting in our best interests. There are some Canadians, who are even willing to give up their freedom in exchange for some strengthened promise of security. Trusts can be abused as we saw in the Sponsorship Scandal. Promises can be broken as we saw in the Peter Mckay/David Orchard Betrayal. Voters can be ‘hoodwinked’ as we saw in the Emerson defection. These are the players many Canadians still offer complete and blind trust even though a democracy demands that we be skeptical and watchful of our elected officials.
Whether you believe that there is a group of rich powerful men that meet and plan out the power strategies for world economies, arrange puppet governments for other nations, or offer to trade away the resources of one country for cheap labour in another, and whether you call those meetings conspiracies or private parties matters not one bit to those who are playing the game. Our belief in such a system does not make it exist nor does our denial make it a fabrication. There are many who believe such a group does exist. The Bilderberg Group is named after the Dutch hotel where it held its first meeting in 1954. You can read all about it, some newspapers are talking about it, and the Ottawa Citizen had a story and there are many sites on the internet. Here is one:
These meetings would have no significance to the majority of the world population if they were not shrouded in secrecy and if the highest levels of security were not imposed surrounding the meetings. There is plenty of speculation about what goes on in these meetings, but without media to represent the people we have no voice. CAP’s concern is around the side story to these meetings. Clearly the meetings are being held in Canada this year. Evidence to support this is the reaction at our border on Wednesday evening when a respected member of the media was detained for 15 hours by our border patrol. It is reported by the victim, Alex Jones that the border patrols were warned he was coming and advised by the Bilderberg group to detain him.  Who gave them the authority to instruct our border security? Who is running this country? So the question of whether a police state is on the horizon is no longer a question, it is here!
This journalist, broadcaster was being tracked. His intention to come to Canada was known in advance. Security was notified. This individual is not a criminal. He is a member of the international independent media.
Canadians ought to be very concerned about these kinds of tactics. Either we consider the press the people’s representative and demand freedom of the press or we forfeit our right to a democratic free state.  We should be outraged. If we cannot depend on mainstream media to report the facts which are impacting our lives us and independent media is being prevented from doing so, what freedom of the press does this democracy support? I attach one Canadian’s thoughts and account of this incident for you to make up your own mind about the state of affairs in Canada today.
