On the November 29, 2014 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, I discussed my recent Red Ice Radio appearance on Canada’s Identity Crisis, my update on the Karen Hudes situation, Canada’s broadcaster asks if British Columbia’s name should be changed to reflect changing demographics, the Council of European Canadians, and, yes, even a few comments on the Bill Cosby situation.

When you are told that Canada has had an official policy of multiculturalism since 1971, do you wonder about the 96% of Canadians who were European Canadian at the time, and who are three-quarters of all Canadians as recently as the 2011 census?
From their statement of Beliefs and Goals:
“We believe Canada is a nation founded by Anglo and French Europeans. In 1971, over 100 years after Confederation, the Anglo and French composition of the Canadian population stood at 44.6 percent and 28.7 percent respectively. All in all, over 96 percent of the population was European in origin. We therefore oppose all efforts to deny or weaken the European character of Canada. We believe that the pioneers and settlers who built the Canadian nation are part of the European people. Therefore we believe that Canada derives from and is an integral part of European civilization and that Canada should remain majority European in its ethnic composition and cultural character. We therefore oppose the massive immigration of non-European and non-Western peoples into Canada that threatens to transform our nation into a non-European majority within our lifetime.“
As a sign of the times of cultural Marxism run amok, and on the public dime, no less, from the November 20, 2014 article on Canada’s national broadcaster, the CBC, they had the audacity to ask whether Canada’s third most populous province, British Columbia, should change its name, in part due to changing demographics.
“Have you ever wondered why British Columbia is still called “British,” even though it’s not a colony any more? Howard Stewart has, and he wants to talk to you about it.
Stewart is a historical geographer, who has travelled all over the world. He thinks B.C. needs to have a conversation about other possible names– names that more accurately reflect the people who live there.“
Here were my comments:
“By that logic, the street names in Kitchener like Cayuga and Manitou should be changed to reflect the current demographics of mostly White Europeans. The fact that this question is even being asked, and by our national taxpayer funded broadcaster, no less, is a sign of where the founding European culture of this country is headed [if] multiculturalism and sustained, mass immigration from around the world is continued.”
“Where things are headed if, not unless. And what’s with the timing? When lots of Canadians of German, Scot and Irish background moved to B.C. to retire, there was no call to have it renamed. It seems the driving force is the movement of non-European immigrants. While we’re at it, we should also change the name of Canada, since that was based upon a Native name, which the current demographics don’t reflect.”
And since they solicited comments, I sent them this email:
“With the recent CBC funding cuts, is an article and feature on one geographer’s musings about changing the name of B.C. such an important priority?
Perhaps we should also consider changing the name of Canada, since it is based on a Native name, which doesn’t reflect the current demographics.
Please, use your limited financial resources more wisely in serving the vast majority of Canadians and not what a particular B.C. academic is proposing.”
and this email to the UBC Professor of Geography, Howard Stewart:
I came across the CBC article, Does British Columbia Need a New Name, in reference to your call for a name change, based, in part on changing demographics.
By that logic, we should also consider changing the name of Canada, since it is based upon a Native name, which doesn’t reflect the demographics of Canada ever since it was founded in 1867, and to this very day.”

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.
An excerpt from an email to my Member of Parliament on October 10, 2014, on what every Canadian Member of Parliament should be aware of in lieu of Parliament’s vote to support air strikes against ISIS. Consider passing on this information to your Member of Parliament, and as things escalate according to plan, some may begin to raise questions behind closed doors and consider whether these military interventions are truly in the Canadian national interest.
“I wanted to draw your attention to the remarks of former NATO Supreme Allied Commander, Gen. Wesley Clark, that indicate these latest events may all be part of a bigger plan being played out by others who have no Canadian national interest, as he appeared on the program Democracy Now! in 2007 (transcript here) and described his meeting with a General at the Pentagon in 2001 after the start of bombing in Afghanistan, and he was told “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.”
The timeline hasn’t held up, but since then, Iraq was invaded in 2003, Sudan was broken up in 2005 with South Sudan proclaiming independence in 2011, Lebanon’s former Prime Minister was assassinated in 2005, the U.S. has been continuing air strikes against Somalia to this day, Libya was taken over in 2011, the U.S. has since officially been providing military support to rebels against Assad in Syria, and Israel has repeatedly been saying that it will not hesitate to respond militarily to Iran’s ongoing nuclear program regardless of the international process through the IAEA.“
Ontario Civil Liberties Association launches online petition in support of Arthur Topham against politically motivated “hate crime” charge

Arthur Topham, a Canadian and resident of British Columbia, was charged in 2012 under the Criminal Code with “willfully promoting hatred” for some of his articles at his site, Radical Press.
On September 24, 2014, the Ontario Civil Liberties Association has publicly come out in support of Topham’s right to free expression and has created an online petition that already has nearly 200 signatories in under 24 hours (including myself).
Amazingly, he was charged in part for producing a satirical version of the seriously intended 1941 book, Germany Must Perish!, which actually called for the forced sterilization of Germans, calling it Israel Must Perish!, and replacing all references to Germans with Jews, to show the political and ethnic motivations behind these “hate crime” charges.
He was also charged in part for reproducing the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, despite it being sold on Amazon.ca and in Canadian brick-and-mortar bookstores.
The petition calls upon the British Columbia Attorney-General to retract her consent for the criminal proceedings against Topham, since such consent is required for any “hate crime” charges, directly illustrating the political nature of these charges.
For an extensive interview with Topham on his charges and other issues, see this December 2013 interview conducted by Canadian journalist, Joshua Blakeney.

Australia’s ahead of Canada, in getting its first explicitly libertarian parliamentarian — Senator David Leyonhjelm.
It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, given Australia’s high Economic Freedom Index rating for several years in a row by the Heritage Foundation, with its 2014 rating of third place compared to Canada in sixth place and the United States as low as 11th place.
It sure helped that Australia now has an elected senate, as there’s no way an open libertarian would be appointed to any legislative body in a parliamentary system.
