RIR-141117_big-Jason-ErbHere is the description of the first hour of my second appearance on Red Ice Radio, speaking about Canada’s Identity Crisis:

“Jason Erb has been writing for his blog, Exposing Faux Capitalism, since the start of the global financial collapse of 2008 and has been hosting his own weekly radio show since 2012. Jason covers economic, financial and political issues from a unique and uncompromisingly fact-based perspective.

In the first hour, we’ll talk about the Ottawa shooting when Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, an Islam convert fatally shot Corporal Nathan Cirillo, a Canadian soldier and then launched an attack in the nearby Centre Block parliament building. Jason talks about Canadian-Islamic relations and what may arise from this event. Will it lead to increased support for Israel? Then, we’ll talk about diminished free speech in Canada, including Arthur Topham’s case.”

Subsequent to the October 27, 2014 Ontario municipal election, I wanted to offer my list of the good and bad of the Waterloo Region municipal election results, with a focus on my community of Waterloo.

The good:

- Dave Jaworsky, the candidate elected as Waterloo mayor really worked hard for the job, knocking on over 20,000 doors.

- Waterloo mayoral candidate Erika Traub had a strong second-place showing in her first-ever political campaign, with her own high level of commitment and care for the citizens of the community.

- That being a regional weatherman for over 40 years shouldn’t automatically make you the top candidate or get you elected, especially by refusing most interviews and not campaigning much during the summer, which ultimately resulted in a third place finish.

- The candidate who ran for Waterloo councillor because he was “bored” came in last place.

- The former Member of Parliament for Kitchener-Waterloo who suddenly declared for Waterloo regional councilor just before the deadline and didn’t get to or choose to participate in any media and voter vetting exercises besides a Rogers debate didn’t get elected.

- The number one challenger to Ken Seiling for Regional Chair, Jay Aissa, didn’t get elected after discrediting the anti-LRT (light rail transit) movement with his various antics, such as his failed court challenge with a shell organization consisting only of himself, unauthorized emails from anti-LRT petition signers to regional councillors, obnoxious robocalls, misleading flyers, a false debt projection claim, a legal threat for some Facebook posts and allegations of sign interference.

The bad:

- The return of both incumbent Waterloo regional councillors, Sean Strickland and Jane Mitchell.

- In 2010, Sean Strickland had said a 9% tax increase proposal was too high for light rail transit, only to support a 12.9% tax increase after the election.

- Prior to the 2010 election, Jane Mitchell had said she was against raising property taxes to pay for the light rail transit plan at the time, only to also support a 12.9% tax increase after the election.

- Not a single anti-LRT candidate elected, but understandable given some of the points mentioned above in the good section.

On a special October 16, 2014 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism, I interviewed Arthur Topham, who has been charged as a political thought criminal for allegedly violating Canada’s Criminal Code provisions for “willfully promoting hatred,” for his writings at his site, RadicalPress.com.

In this interview, the issues we discussed included:

- The Ontario Civil Liberties Association supporting his case and calling for a repeal of all “hate crime” provisions in the Criminal Code and circulating a petition calling for the B.C. Attorney General to revoke her consent for the prosecution of Arthur Topham.
- He was charged with a crime after the Human Rights Commission was no longer to hear so-called hate cases in 2012.
- The tight control of the media and the blackout on mass media coverage of his case ever since November 2012 with a single National Post article.
- The phony media, with so-called liberal newspapers like the Toronto Star not making counter-point arguments to the supposed right-wing National Post newspaper on their article.
- The inconsistencies in the charge and with his prosecution.
- The Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees those charged “to be tried within a reasonable time,” yet he was charged in 2012, and his trial has finally been scheduled for October 2015.
- The political nature of the crime, with the Attorney General of the province having to sign off on it.
- The selective application of the law, with others not prosecuted, despite doing similar or more things than Arthur Topham did.

I have spoken out against Wikipedia’s lack of adherence to its neutral point of view policy, but it is great to get recognition by others in linking to an article on this site in order to provide documentable and accurate evidence in support of serious Wikipedia articles, like this one on the Bank of Montreal, where they linked to my article, Big Five Canadian banks: Consistently paying dividends since the 1800s.

The company has not missed a dividend payment since 1829, paying dividends consistently though major world crises such as WWI, The Great Depression, WWII, and the 2008 Financial Crisis, this makes Bank of Montreal’s dividend payment history one of the longest in the world.[5]“
