Two Children of Canadian Top Brass linked to Dieppe in WWII, Aided Communists

The Son of a Canadian General of WWII
Gave Military Aid to Fidel Castro for the Cuban Revolution

Andrew George Latta McNaughton, Lieutenant-General (1887-1966)

Andrew George Latta McNaughton, Lieutenant-General (1887-1966)


 

A. R. L. (Andy) McNaughton, a Montreal consulting engineer, and the son of Canadian-born General Andrew George Latta McNaughton, ran guns for Fidel Castro, acted as Castro’s double agent, and fought in Cuba at the side of Castro and his rebels during the Revolution.

Speaking of McNaughton’s father, the General, The Canadian Encyclopedia says the General “endorsed the ill-fated DIEPPE plan”. Further on, the CE says:

“A compelling public figure for almost 2 decades after 1945, [General] McNaughton was Canadian representative on the UN Atomic Energy Commission, and president of the Atomic Energy Control Board of Canada, 1946-48; permanent delegate to the UN, 1948-49“.

From what I have read, only Rhodes Scholars and leftists end up representing Canada at the UN, so this General being appointed as a “permanent delegate to the UN” does raise a question of leftist leanings, in my mind.

The name of the son, A. R. L. (Andy) McNaughton, comes up linked to Castro in news clippings in 1959, including The New York Times (January 6, 1959) and the Montreal Gazette (Monday, April 27, 1959).

The Montreal Gazette’s Bill Bantey described Fidel Castro’s Montreal visit on April 26th, 1959 for the front page of the Gazette:

With Castro as he flew here from Boston — three hours behind schedule — was a party of some 75 Cuban government officials and newspapermen.

Among those greeting the lawyer who toppled the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista was Andrew R. L. (Andy) McNaughton, a Montrealer who helped secure arms for the rebels during the uprising.

A smattering of newsclips from Castro’s 1959 visit to Canada helps to set the atmosphere:

Canadian Aided Castro

Someone at typepad.com, an author, a blogger? by the name of Isabel Vincent (seems to be bilingual) has this to say about the General’s son:

“The rebels’ idealism also transcended borders as people from around the world rallied to their cause. Canadian Andy McNaughton, son of the famed Gen. A.G.L. McNaughton, was a case in point. McNaughton’s [son] worked for Castro as a double agent during the guerrilla war, in which he was code-named Esquimal, or “man from the north.” Officially employed as an arms buyer for Batista, he purchased weapons for the rebels with the Cuban regime’s money, as Canadian historian Robert Wright relates in his 2007 book Three Nights in Havana: Pierre Trudeau, Fidel Castro and the Cold War World. McNaughton, named an honorary citizen of Cuba after the revolution, told the Canadian press in 1959 that “I got to know [Cubans’] problems. You can’t close your eyes to some things. You have to make your decision and I made mine—to help the cause of freedom in Cuba.” [I accessed that passage on 23 February 2009 at quarter past midnight.]

Castro also connected with Belgian immigrant to Montreal, Georges Schoeters (a teaching assistant and a student at the French University of Montreal), alleged by some to have been a KGB agent.  (I’m currently working on newer, contemporary research that shows a different inspiration for Schoeters and his terrorism:  “the Red Priest”, François Houtart, a Marxist Jesuit (oxymorn), had known Schoeters in a Young Christian Workers’ residence in Belgium. There will be a post on that, eventually.)

Through Schoeters, to whom Castro gave aid and training in Cuba, the Communist Front de libération du Québec (FLQ) terrorists were set up. Their bombing spree began in early 1963. In his book, La Crise d’Octobre [The October Crisis] (written while occupying high office in Canada), Trudeau’s compadre, Communist Gérard Pelletier, admitted that the FLQ terrorists (whose logo was a gun-toting, pipe-smoking “patriote” [patriot] from the 1839 local “revolutions”), declared:

“that the Front de liberation du Québec  has been gestating in that province for eight years, that it is a tool of the Communist Party, that none of the electronic equipment it has stolen since 1965 has ever been recovered, that it has “little concern for Québec nationalism despite its propaganda,” and links it to collateral red front groups such as the Front de libération populaire (People’s Liberation Front), and the Mouvement Syndicale Politique (Trade Union Political Movement).”

As I previously commented in my translation entitled “The Plan for Quebec: Communist State?” (NoSnow, April 22, 2012):

“In 1963, when twenty-three FLQ terrorists were picked up and charged, some of them, including Raymond Villeneuve, hired criminal lawyer Daoust to conduct their defense. It is therefore quite odd that Daoust should have organized Castro’s trip to Montreal on the very day in 1959 when Castro connected with Schoeters, who was used to set up the Front de Libération du Québec the (FLQ) terrorists; and that Daoust himself, three or four years later – at which date he is known as a lawyer for Cotroni – would end up defending some of the terrorists, one of whose leaders – Pierre Vallières, is a colleague of Trudeau, and of the two other men recruited by Lester Pearson to join the Liberals to “fight” these same terrorists whom they call “separatists” …. although, they are clearly not “separatists” but communists.”

Moreover, René Lévesque, a former war correspondent and a journalist in Montreal at the time of the 1959 Castro visit, was photographed interviewing Castro. In 1964, Lévesque told high school children, on at least two occasions, that they should resort to “guns and dynamite” if “Canada” refused to give Quebec “Associate State” status (modeled on the European system, the system of the globalists, transitional to one-world government) instead of Confederation. In 2002, Mikhail Gorbachev called that system the “New European Soviet”.

While Castro was in town, he was accompanied by Montreal criminal lawyer, Raymond Daoust, later better known as a mob lawyer for the Cotroni clan. (The Cotronis were fans of the Liberals. They attended Liberal conventions; and their thugs occasionally showed up at polling booths with baseball bats, to stuff the ballot boxes. The Cotronis apparently offered to locate the kidnapped Labor Minister, Pierre Laporte, an offer declined by Liberal Quebec Premier and Rhodes Scholar, Robert Bourassa.)

Canada’s “Red Fed” Pampers the Terrorists

Peter Dauphin of the Edmund Burke Society wrote a couple of pieces in 1971 documenting the fact that known FLQ terrorists and other assorted subversives were being coddled by the Trudeau régime. The regime illegally funneled Canadian taxpayers’ money to the terrorists, supplying them with paid “volunteer” jobs, office equipment, and cash for National Defence ads in pro-Communist magazines.

The program used as the conduit was called the Company of Young Canadians (CYC); which had in fact been set up by (now known-to-be) Soviet agent, Prime Minister Lester Bowles Pearson. Obviously, the program would have allowed Soviet Pearson and then his “three wise men” from the Quebec Left (Trudeau, Pelletier and Jean Marchand) to stay in touch with the Communist subversives, while supplying them with perks and wages to float their terrorism.

Dauphin’s first piece on the subject is in particular worth reading:

Gérard Pelletier And The FLQ: New Dimensions In Trudeauvnik Hypocrisy

Part 2 is here, The Pelletier Crisis by Peter Dauphin.

And all of this emerges from a visit by Fidel Castro to Montreal in 1959, following a successful military campaign in Cuba aided by the son of a WWII Canadian General, who is later linked to the Communist UN. General McNaughton had been so close to MacKenzie-King (the latter a protégé of the same Rockefellers who co-financed the mass-slaughter of the Russian people by the Bolshevik Jews in 1917) that King wanted to make General McNaughton the first Canadian-born Governor General of Canada.

I repeat, the son of a WWII Canadian General, supplied arms to Fidel Castro, resulting in the Communist overthrow of Cuba.

Castro then set up the Communist FLQ terrorists to aid in the overthrow of Canada.

The Red Terror in Canada gave the more elite moles a pretext to propose a “non-violent” “political,” “democratic,” “solution” to the terror (misportrayed as an ethnic war between the French Canadians and the “rest of Canada”), by instructing René Lévesque to set up the (Communist) Parti Québécois to run referendums to dismantle Canada. I’ll go into this particular background in a separate post on “The Secret Committee of Power”, from a book by “former” Marxist-Leninist leader, Jean-François Lisée.

It all appears to be a very tightly knit family: the mob, the Liberals, terrorism, politics, Soviet moles, lawyers both criminal and constitutional, and Soviet Communism.

Michèle Duclos (under arrest)

Michèle Duclos also was personal secretary to Pierre Bourgault, the leader of the far-left Rassemblement pour l’Indépendance (RIN).

The exploits of Michèle Duclos, the RIN, the Black Liberation Front and the F.L.Q. are described in Chapter 7 (Le F.L.Q. et les Noirs américains) [“The FLQ and the American Blacks”] of Louis Fournier’s 1982 book, F.L.Q. Histoire d’un mouvement clandestin [F.L.Q. History of an Underground Movement].
 

Fournier is a journalist specialized in Quebec trade-unionism (“journaliste spécialisé dans le syndicalisme québécois“). Quebec trade-unionism is on the left. Mr. Fournier is also apparently on the left; but he is also a trained research journalist with degrees from the French University of Montreal and from Strasbourg University in France. Therefore, some of his information is useful.

Mr. Fournier’s partisanship is evident at the time of the October Crisis (during the kidnapping of British Trade Commissioner James Cross and Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporte). Fournier, then a journalist with radio station CKAC, became the first to broadcast the F.L.Q. Manifesto. His initiative got him arrested by the Police. Fournier is therefore not only a journalist, but a man in the midst of the action. He refers to the F.L.Q. terrorists as “political prisoners”.

I’ll translate a bit on Michèle Duclos from Fournier’s pages 93-95.

De 65 à 68, les grandes émeutes urbaines feront 215 morts et plus de 9 000 blessés). Le 15 février, le leader du mouvement noir radical, Malcolm X, est assassiné à Harlem lors d’un ralliement de l’Organisation pour l’unité afro-américaine. Le FBI ne serait pas étranger à ce meurtre.

From 1965-1968, the great urban riots left 215 dead and over 9,000 wounded. On February 15th [1965], the leader of the radical Black movement, Malcolm X, is assassinated in Harlem during a rally of the Organization for Afro-American Unity. The FBI would be no stranger to this murder.

C’est dans ce climat agité qu’on apprend l’existence de liens entre le F.L.Q. et un mouvement clandestin de Noirs américains, le Black Liberation Front. Le 16 février, le FBI appréhende à New York une Québécoise que la police fédérale américaine relie à un complot terroriste en vue de dynamiter des monuments historiques aux Etats-Unis, dont la célèbre statue de la Liberté. Michèle Duclos, 26 ans, est arrêtée à Manhattan où elle s’était rendue livrer de la dynamite qu’elle avait transportée en voiture depuis Montréal.

It is in this agitated climate that news emerges of the existence of links between the F.L.Q. and an underground movement of American Blacks, the Black Liberation Front. On February 16th, the FBI arrests a French-Canadian in New York whom the American federal police link to a terrorist plot to dynamite historic monuments in the USA, including the famous Statue of Liberty. Michèle Duclos, aged 26, is arrested in Manhattan, where she had gone to deliver the dynamite she had brought by car from Montreal.

Mme Duclos est une figure bien connue dans la métropole où elle a travaillé comme speakerine à la télévision. C’est la fille du major Jean Duclos du Régiment des Fusiliers Mont-Royal, un héros du débarquement des Canadiens français à Dieppe en Normandie. Militante en vue du R.I.N., elle a travaillé au secrétariat du parti durant six mois, en 1964, à titre de secrétaire personnelle de Pierre Bourgault.

Madam Duclos is a figure well known in the city (of Montreal) where she has worked as a television speaker. She is the daughter of Major Jean Duclos of the Mount-Royal Fusileers Regiment, a hero of the French-Canadian landing at DIEPPE and at Normandy. A militant with the RIN, she worked in the party’s secretariat for six months in 1964, as personal secretary to Pierre Bourgault.

A New York, le FBI épingle du même coup trois militants du Black Libération Front, Robert Collier, Walter Bowe et Khaleel Sayyed. A Montréal, la G.R.C. arrête quatre membres du R.I.N. : Michèle Saulnier, 31 ans, professeur de psycho-pédagogie à l’Ecole normale Jacques-Cartier, liée au groupe Parti Pris; Gilles Legault, un mécanicien de 31 ans militant de la première heure du R.I.N. où il est président de l’association du comté de Laurier, et deux jeunes travailleurs, Raymond Sabourin, 21 ans, employé de banque, et Jean Giroux, 20 ans, commis des Postes canadiennes. Un autre jeune militant du R.I.N., François Dorlot, étudiant en Droit à l’Université de Montréal, est détenu pour interrogatoire.

In New York, the FBI nabs three Black Liberation Front militants in a single strike, Robert Collier, Walter Bowe and Khaleel Sayyed. In Montreal, the R.C.M.P. arrest four members of the R.I.N.: Michèle Saulnier, aged 31, a teacher in psycho-education at the Ecole normale Jacques-Cartier, linked to the Parti Pris group; Gilles Legault, a mechanic aged 31 and an activist from the very beginning of the R.I.N. of whose Laurier County association he is the president; and two young workers, Raymond Sabourin aged 21, a bank employee; and Jean Giroux, aged 20, a clerk with Canada Post. Another young RIN militant, François Dorlot, a law student at the University of Montreal, is detained for questioning.

Le directeur du FBI lui-même, Edgar Hoover, annonce que le groupe sera accusé de conspiration pour dynamitage. Il révèle que le leader du Black Liberation Front, Robert Collier, a déjà séjourné à deux reprises à Cuba où il a rencontré Ernesto Che Guevara. C’est à La Havane que Collier a connu, lors d’un voyage à l’été 1964, le professeur Michèle Saulnier, qui serait son «contact» à Montréal. Il l’a revue dans la métropole à la fin de janvier 1965 alors qu’elle était en compagnie de Michèle Duclos. Celle-ci a également des relations avec des milieux officiels cubains, à Montréal et à New York, et des liens avec le F.L.N. algérien depuis qu’elle a travaillé pour l’Office national du tourisme à Alger.

The Director of the FBI himself, Edgar Hoover, announces that the group will be charged with conspiracy to dynamite. He reveals that the leader of the Black Liberation Front, Robert Collier, had already been to Cuba twice where he met Ernesto Che Guevara. It is in Havana, during a trip in the summer of 1964, that Collier met Michèle Saulnier, who would be his contact in Montreal. He saw her again in the city at the end of January 1965 when she was in the company of Michèle Duclos. The latter also had connections to official Cuban circles, in Montreal and in New York, as well as ties to the Algerian F.L.N. from the time she worked for the National Tourism Office in Algeria.

Un agent infiltré du FBI

An Infiltrated FBI Agent

C’est grâce à un agent secret infiltré au sein du Black Liberation Front, le sergent noir Raymond Wood, que le FBI a pu obtenir ces renseignements et éventer le présumé complot de dynamitage. Wood a même accompagné Collier à Montréal lors de la rencontre avec Saulnier et Duclos. Le groupe a été pris en filature par la G.R.C. à la demande du FBI. L’enquête s’est poursuivie dans la métropole sous la direction du sergent Gérard Barbeau de la G.R.C, assisté du sergent-détective Claude Désautels de l’escouade antiterroriste de Montréal. C’est ainsi que la police a remonté la filière de la fourniture d’explosifs.

It is thanks to a secret agent infiltrated into the Black Liberation Front, the Black Sergeant Raymond Wood, that the FBI was able to obtain this information and break up the presumed dynamiting conspiracy. Wood even accompanied Collier to Montreal during his meeting with Saulnier and Duclos. The group had been tailed by the RCMP at the request of the FBI. The investigation was pursued in the city under the direction of Sergeant Gérard Barbeau of the RCMP, assisted by Sergeant-Detective Claude Désautels of the Montreal anti-terrorist squad. Which is how the police had set up the tail from the explosives supplier.

En réalité, lors des audiences du comité sénatorial américain sur le terrorisme en 1973-1974, on révélera que le soi-disant complot avait été tramé à l’initiative même du FBI et que c’était un coup monté. Le policier Wood jouait le rôle d’agent provocateur. De surcroît, à la suite d’une entente FBI-G.R.C, un militant du F.L.Q. aurait été « manipulé » par la G.R.C. pour l’opération d’approvisionnement en dynamite 21.

In reality, during hearings of the American Senatorial Committee on Terrorism in 1973-74, it was revealed that the so-called plot had been framed at the initiative of the FBI itself, and that it was a staged sting. Police officer Wood played the role of agent provocateur. On top of it, further to an FBI-RCMP agreement, an FLQ militant had been “manipulated” by the RCMP for the dynamite supply operation 21

Quoi qu’il en soit, l’affaire aura un grand retentissement au Québec et aux Etats-Unis. Les trois militants noirs seront condamnés à 10 ans de prison. Quant à Michèle Duclos, elle se reconnaît coupable de contrebande d’explosifs et, par suite de cet aveu, on retire le second chef d’accusation, celui de conspiration contre la propriété fédérale des Etats-Unis. Le 16 juin, elle est condamnée à cinq ans de prison mais sa peine est révisée au bout de trois mois et commuée en sursis. Libérée après sept mois d’incarcération, interdite de séjour aux Etats-Unis et risquant sinon d’être inculpée, du moins de devoir témoigner devant les tribunaux québécois, elle part en exil. Après un séjour en France, elle ira au Liban pour travailler à la télévision de Beyrouth. Michèle Duclos ne rentrera au Québec qu’après huit ans d’exil, en février 1973. « Il n’y a aucun doute dans mon esprit que nous aurons notre indépendance », dira-t-elle à son retour.

Be that as it may, the affair had a big impact in Quebec and the United States. The three black militants will be sentenced to 10 years in prison. As for Michèle Duclos, she pleaded guilty to smuggling explosives and, on account of this, the second charge, that of conspiracy against federal property of the USA was withdrawn. On June 16th, she was sentenced to five years in prison but her punishment was revised after three months and commuted to a reprieve. Released after seven months of incarceration, banned from remaining in the USA or risk being further charged, at the least having to testify in Quebec courts, she went into exile. After a stay in France, she left for Lebanon to work in television in Beirut. Michèle Duclos would not return to Quebec until February 1973, after eight years of exile. “There is no doubt in my mind that we will have our independence”, she said upon her return.

In addition, according to Louis Fournier, there is a communist cell of the FLQ called DIEPPE.  The reason might be intriguing to know, since Lieutenant-General Andrew George Latta McNaughton and Major Jean Duclos were both instrumental at Dieppe, and both produced children who aided Communist terrorism.

“Red” Harper?  Canada’s Fed Financing Quebec Radical Communists

Foreword:  This post was in this web site, but has disappeared. I still have it in my backup site in localhost, so I’m putting it up again.  Exclusive English translation for “No Snow In Moscow”:


Original French Title: “PARTI COMMUNISTE” [COMMUNIST PARTY] by Éric Duhaime

Source: http://blogues.canoe.ca/ericduhaime/general/party-communiste/
Original publication and date: Le Journal de Québec, 15 August 2011

A mega-gathering of the radical left will be held this weekend in St-Alphonse-de-Rodriguez, in Lanaudière [Quebec, Canada]. The “17th Alternative Days 2011” presents a shocking program of events.

On the menu, presentations by our local Left, from new president of the CSN, Louis Roy, to the leader of “Project Montreal”, Richard Bergeron, by way of New Democratic [NDP] Neo-MP, Alexander Boulerice, not to forget the representatives of United Quebec, the FTQ and other labour unions.

AS IN CUBA?

What is shocking about this conference on “human rights” is the presence of Leonel Gonzales, coordinator of international relations for the Parliament of Cuba, and Theresita Sotolongo Vicente, Cuba’s Ambassador to Canada.

Guest speaker Gonzalez is former Director of the Workers Central of Cuba, a puppet organization which holds the monopoly over representation of Cuban workers.

Cuba does not recognize the right to collective bargaining, nor to strike. Movements of the self-employed are illegal. The true union leaders are thrown into prison, persecuted, or worse, confined in secret.

Rather than reporting these excesses, the Quebec Left invites the autocrats of the regime to join them in denouncing capitalism, and to sing the communist International under the supervision of Castro’s representative in Canada.

THREE CHEERS FOR CHAVEZ?

That’s not all. The Leftist activists will also listen to Noel Marquez of the Council of Social Movements of ALBA, an organization created by Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro to broadcast their death-to-liberty ideology in Latin America, and which maintains links with terrorist Marxist groups such as FARC and the Shining Path.
"Democratic Partners"A journalist-student of the Prince Arthur Herald of McGill University moreover revealed last week that the Bolivarian Society of Quebec, a local branch of sympathizers with dictators, holds its regular meetings at the CSN in Montreal.

With their communist comrades, our union activists shut their eyes to abuses of the rights of workers.

I am not alone in denouncing Cuban and Venezuelan anti-trade-unionism; so does the Confederation of International Trade Unions (CSI) of which the CSN is however a member!

CUT, PLEASE!!!

This gathering of communists and of devils’ advocates for the worst dictatorships is organized by International Alternatives, the same organism which financed the Canadian ship for Gaza which never left the Greek islands.

Another workshop of the weekend is called “Against Harper”. If they were consistent, our Leftist friends would also denounce the “subsidies of Harper”.

In recent years, the Federal Government [of Canada] has contributed over 5 million dollars to “Alternatives” under the rubric of — hang onto your seats — “democratic partners”. The Quebec Governement added 1.8 million dollars. And that’s without counting projects currently underway which are costing the Federal Government $769,828 and the Quebec Government $541,340.

And thus our taxes are squandered to fight our democratic and union rights.

Unionized workers, how do you feel about your obligatory union dues being spent to bring in representatives of the torturers of Latin-american trade unionists?

We knew the Quebec Left was against freedom of association for workers. When it participates in circuses like this one organized by “Alternatives”, we must admit that it is against freedom, period.

TEXT OF FRENCH ORIGINAL:

Un méga-rassemblement de la gauche radicale se tiendra ce week-end à St-Alphonse-de-Rodriguez, dans Lanaudière. Les 17e journées alternatives 2011 proposent une programmation qui étonne.

Au menu, des intervention de notre gauche locale, du nouveau président de la CSN, Louis Roy, au chef de Projet Montréal, Richard Bergeron, en passant par le néo-député néo-démocrate Alexandre Boulerice, sans oublier les représentants de Québec solidaire, de la FTQ et des autres syndicats.

COMME À CUBA?

Ce qui choque dans cette conférence sur les droits de la personne, c’est la présence de Leonel Gonzales, coordonnateur des relations internationales du parlement de Cuba et de Theresita Sotolongo Vicente, ambassadrice de Cuba au Canada.

Le conférencier Gonzalez est l’ancien directeur de la Centrale des travailleurs de Cuba, organisation fantoche qui détient le monopole de représentation des travailleurs cubains.

Cuba ne reconnait pas le droit aux négociations collectives, ni à la grève. Les mouvements de travailleurs indépendants sont illégaux. Les vrais leaders syndicaux sont jetés en prison, persécutés ou, au mieux, confinés à la clandestinité.

Plutôt que de dénoncer ces excès, la gauche québécoise invite des autocrates du régime pour dénoncer, avec eux, le capitalisme et chanter l’international communiste, sous la tutelle de la représentante de Castro au Canada.

VIVE CHAVEZ?

Ce n’est pas tout. Les activistes gauchistes écouteront aussi Noel Marquez du Conseil des mouvements sociaux de l’ALBA, une organisation créée par Hugo Chavez et Fidel Castro pour diffuser leur idéologie liberticide en Amérique latine, qui entretient des liens avec des groupes terroristes marxistes comme les FARC ou le Sentier Lumineux.

Un journaliste-étudiant du Prince Arthur Herald de l’Université McGill révélait d’ailleurs la semaine dernière que la Société bolivarienne du Québec, une antenne locale des sympathisants de ces dictateurs, tient ses réunions à la permanence de la CSN à Montréal.

Avec les camarades communistes, nos syndicalistes ferment les yeux sur les abus des droits des travailleurs.
C’est pas juste moi qui dénonce l’anti-syndicalisme cubain et vénézuélien mais aussi la Confédération syndicale internationale (CSI) dont est pourtant membre… la CSN!

COUPEZ SVP!!!

Ce rassemblement de communistes et de suppôts des pires dictatures est organisé par Alternatives Internationales, même organisme qui finançait cet été le bateau canadien pour Gaza qui n’a jamais quitté les îles grecques.

Un autre atelier du week-end s’intitule « Contre Harper ». S’ils étaient conséquents pour deux cents, nos amis gauchistes s’élèveraient aussi contre les subventions d’Harper.

Le gouvernement fédéral a versé, ces dernières années, plus de 5 millions $ à Alternatives à titre de, tenez-vous bien, « partenaire démocratique ». Le gouvernement québécois ajoutait 1,8 millions $. Sans compter les projets présentement en cours qui s’élèvent à 769,828$ avec le fédéral et 541,340$ avec Québec.

Notre argent dilapidée à combattre nos droits démocratiques et syndicaux.

Comment trouvez-vous ça, travailleurs syndiqués, de payer des cotisations obligatoires pour inviter les représentants des tortionnaires d’organisations syndicales latino-américaines?

On savait la gauche québécoise contre la liberté d’association des travailleurs. Lorsqu’elle participe à des cirques comme celui d’Alternatives, on doit constater qu’elle est contre la liberté tout court.

“Behind the Desmarais State:  Power”; Behind Philpot and Lisée:  Power

 

“I am taken captive, and I know not by whom, but I am taken.”

— Seneca

“Marx hardly dealt with the concept of nationalism at all and discounted it as a major force.  Lenin recognized it to be tactically useful in a revolution, but of no use after that.”

— Robert R. King in Minorities Under Communism, (Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press, 1973), p. 14.

 

“Secret Committee” “of Power” Independently Confirmed

Quebec author Robin Philpot, a faithful chorister of the New World Order in Quebec (who pretends to expose it while concealing it with the usual canards), nonetheless furnishes added detail on the secret committee at Power Corporation in his 2014 update of his 2008 book, [translation] Behind The Desmarais State:  Power.  Philpot is one of the many authors of Le Goût du Québec, L’après référendum 1995  (a lament for the near-miss Soviet takeover of 1995).  See my post Singing Tomorrows.

The secret committee at Power was first exposed by tactical advisor to the Communist Parti Québécois, “former Marxist-Leninist leader” Jean-François Lisée in his 1990 book In The Eye of the Eagle.  Lisée’s end-notes, however, leave much to the imagination.  Documents behind his account of the secret committee are too vaguely referenced to easily identify them in a search for the originals.  Philpot has resolved that problem by giving us the title and date of the relevant dispatch by American “diplomat”, E.C. Bittner (who may have been under cover in Ottawa for the CIA), both of which were omitted by Lisée:  “Quebec Separatism and the Liberal Leadership Race”, (3 January 1968).

You can read my exclusive English translation of a segment of that free Introduction:  “Behind The Desmarais State:  Power” which confirms the 1967 “secret committee” at Power Corporation.  The secret committee, including Pierre Elliott Trudeau, called for the Communist Parti Québécois to be set up and led by Communist René Lévesque.  If the communism isn’t immediately obvious, it’s the communism of the New Left called “Industrial Democracy,” first trotted out in Yugoslavia under Marshal Tito in 1950, and touted by Leo Roback in 1970 as “the true heir of Karl Marx”.

<h2 style="text-align:center;padding-bottom:9px;padding-top:12px;"“Power” Made René Lévesque A Star

Philpot — as I said, a faithful chorister to the New world Order — claims Power Corporation intended to “marginalize” René Lévesque and “beat” “separatism”.  In fact, Power Corporation and the federal Liberals upgraded Lévesque and gave him a new political party to lead.

What Philpot, and Lisée as well, don’t want readers to see is that Power Corporation built its own “separatist” movement using Lévesque to merge the existing Red, Pink and Bourgeois parties.  Is that “marginalizing”?  Is that “beating” “separatism”?  No.  They made Lévesque a star.  Their  star.  And that is the secret.  Big Business, what Professor Antony Sutton called the “corporate socialists”, created the Parti Québécois to restructure Canada and North America to suit their design for the new global world.

So to counter these obvious facts in the segment Philpot has to quote in order to write his political pot-boiler — funded by tax dollars by the way — Philpot notes that René Lévesque and Jacques Parizeau alone in Quebec politics (respectively the leaders of the 1980 and 1995 referendums) had no “links” with the Desmarais.

But of course they did!  They were secret agents of Desmarais who set up the Communist PQ for them; who ran two referendums for them.  Publicly, they had to dress down Power Corporation.  Ties between them would not have fit with the illusion of Desmarais “opposing” “separatism”. — which is how our corrupt and dumbed-down press and media represent Power Corporation, as being opposed to Quebec “sovereignty” — when in fact Power Corporation is one of the globalist authors of the means toward dismantling the whole of Canada by secession:  the invention and set-up of the PQ itself through the “secret committee” hosted on its business premises.

The Power-controlled PQ used “separatism” to swell its ranks; yet, when referendum time arrived, both Lévesque and Parizeau switched from “sovereignty” (independence for Quebec) to “association” or “partnership”:  and that is where the wanted “negotiation” lies:  the “negotiation” by Canada’s federal government (also controlled by Power Corporation) on behalf of the “rest of Canada” with  Power-controlled Quebec after a “Yes” in a referendum to secede.  In other words, Canada will “negotiate” its own suicide.  The treacherous multinational corporations don’t want to be blamed for that, but they plan to be the beneficiaries of this corporate coup on Canada and the West.

Philpot tells us that Power controlled Trudeau and put him in office, and also Chrétien, Paul Martin, Stephen Harper and Brian Mulroney.  Naturally:  because any of these men might have been called upon to “negotiate” the dismantling of Canada — its re-federation — with Power’s Communist PQ after a “Yes” in a rigged referendum.  (I’m very sure the 1995 referendum was highly rigged; and quite possibly, also the one in 1980.)

René Lévesque and Jacques Parizeau had to keep their distance from Power Corporation.  They had to find fault with it or threaten it or denounce Power Corporation to create the impression of distance.

Lévesque denounced Power Corporation expressly in the PQ’s 1972 Communist manifesto (free download in the sidebar, see the blue lightning).  At page 68, Lévesque (and his gang) said:

“Conversely, there are nonetheless a number of sectors where indefinite growth in the size of companies hardly presents any true advantages.  The economic utility of conglomerates (or “empires”) is perhaps obvious for the financiers who constituted them, but not for the community.  All in all, the fact that one must be satisfied with only one steel-works does not extend absolutely to justifying at the same time the existence of Power Corporation!”

Lévesque is threatening to break up Power Corporation … if Quebec becomes “sovereign”, i.e. Communist.

But you will notice that despite the big send-up that Philpot gives to the “threat” posed to Quebec by this corporate Godzilla, and the self-serving complaints about “monopoly” aired so indignantly by Philpot:  no Liberal government, no federal government, and certainly no Parti Québécois government, has ever dismantled Power Corporation.

Therefore, if you want to know who runs Quebec and Canada, look not to the Legislature, not to Parliament, look to Power Corporation.  How else can one explain that for over 50 years, nothing has been done about it?  Power is untouchable.  Because Power is the boss … of political puppets and phony referendums to use the people in a “democratic” vote to cover for their lackeys when they take the country apart.

Proof that René Lévesque was working for Power Corporation is the fight he always had on his hands from the PQ militants who did not like the word “association” in Lévesque’s platform.  Lévesque finally resigned, leaving Parizeau to tactically rescue the PQ as its new leader by publicly denouncing “association”, just like the rest of the Reds.

But at referendum time, Parizeau, with the aid of his fellow ball players, jumped back to the scheme that calls for “negotiation”:  he now called it “partnership” instead of “association”.  Six of one, half a dozen of the other.

René Lévesque includes a timeline at the back of his 1986 Memoirs entitled Attendez que je me rappelle… (Wait while I remember…), republished in 1994 by Québec/Amérique.  The recurring crisis in the party over the concept of association is noted on the timeline.  I’ve extracted the points, as follows:

[Translation 1]:

  1. “October [1978]  In a statement to the (Quebec) National Assembly, René Lévesque stresses that sovereignty and association form a whole.”
     
  2. “June [1979]  Seventh Congress of the Parti Québécois.  Party members support the position of René Lévesque on the link between sovereignty and association.”
     
  3. “May [1980]  Referendum.  The “No” takes it with 59.6%, and 44.4% for the “Yes”.  The rate of participation is 86%.  The “Yes” takes a majority in 16 of the 110 voting districts.” 
  4. “3-6 December [1981]  Congress of the Parti Québécois:  hard-lining of the party, a majority of the delegates excludes from the party program all reference to association.  René Lévesque threatens to resign.” 

Think carefully:  René Lévesque threatened to quit over the word “association”.  Why?  Because, without the word “association,” the whole concept of «état-associé» (the EEC-EU-EUSR for Canada–and next, North America) vanishes.  It is the word “association” which will transform the top half of the continent of North America, instantaneously, into a North American (Soviet) Union disguised as “keeping Quebec in Canada”.

Again, why did René Lévesque threaten to resign over deletion of the word association?  Because he was working for Power Corporation; he was leading Power Corp’s designer political party created on orders of Power Corp’s “secret committee” of Red “Liberals” … to negotiate the dismantling of Canada.  And, the negotiations make the goons look like heroes.  They will choir that they “saved” Canadian “unity” when a new string of banana republics agrees to “federate” in a new Canadian region, with each level under a new division of powers.

So, how did they get association back in for 1995?  With a little fancy footwork, as usual.  According to the Pravda-style “Canadian” “documentary” Breaking Point, on the subject of the 1995 referendum, it went like this:

[Transcript of the English film:]
[Download the clip:  (coming later)]

[Female voice-over:]

Bouchard argues that the YES forces must provide Quebecers with the reassurance they seek. 

[Lucien Bouchard:]

Ils ne sont pas des êtres politiques simples.”  (They are not political imbeciles.)

[Female voice-over:]

On March 12th, Lucien Bouchard decides to act, knowing that many anxious sovereignists back him.  He’s going to challenge Jacques Parizeau.

Bouchard wants Parizeau to offer Canada a partnership, and to hold a second referendum before declaring Quebec’s independence.

For Jacques Parizeau, this is heresy.  The two men meet in the privacy of the premier’s home in Montreal.  A battle of titans has begun.

[Jean-François Lisée:]

He wanted to commit to a second referendum where the population of Quebec would ratify the new agreement or treaty or whatever, between Quebec and Canada, as was the case in the 1980 question.

Now, this was, for Mr. Parizeau, and for the Council of Ministers, and for the PQ, out of the question.  There would be no return to the two-referendum scenario.  And Mr. Bouchard knew that.”

Obviously, Lisée’s reference to an “agreement or treaty or whatever” means there had to be negotiations in 1995, as in 1980.  Obviously, they need the second referendum to ratify the “negotiations” desired by Power Corporation, which created the PQ for this purpose, and this alone, using the Reds and other corrupt political tools that it controls.

So what really happened in the end?  Here’s what happened.  Read the 1995 question:
 

“Do you agree that Québec should become sovereign, after having made a formal offer to Canada for a new economic and political partnership, within the scope of the Bill respecting the future of Québec and of the agreement signed on 12 June 1995?”

 
The 1980 association was restored to the question of 1995 by calling it a partnership.  Obviously, the result of the negotiations would have to be “ratified” … in a second referendum.
 

<h2 style="text-align:center;padding-bottom:9px;padding-top:12px;"The "NO" side was working for the "YES"

Parizeau knocked down Power Corp in a speech Philpot cites, delivered to the more-rabid Communist wing of the Red PQ, the so-called party “militants”, a month before the 1995 referendum.

1995 Canada Rally in Montreal

1995 Canada Rally in Montreal

Giving the impression that Power Corporation was an enemy of Quebec “sovereignty” (as if “sovereignty” were the real target and not dismantling Canada), Parizeau cleverly denounced to his far-left Reds all the “former” employees of Power Corporation who were “working” for the “NO” side:  Jean Chrétien, Daniel Johnson, John Rae (aka Cohen).  But why did a Montreal businessman organize a last-minute Canada rally three days before the October 30th referendum?

Precisely because the so-called “NO” committee, so obviously controlled by Power Corporation, was doing nothing!

The “NO” committee was, in fact, controlled opposition.  Their job was to lose the referendum, to ensure the “negotiations” to restructure Canada for Power Corporation and their Zionist paymasters at the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London.  And we know this because Power Corporation is Quebec headquarters for distribution of the Rhodes Scholarships* that emanate from UK in the cause of the globalist bankers behind the RIIA, sometimes known in its early days by one of its front-names:  The Milner Group, the folks who brought you WWI and WWII by controlling the Throne of England.

Chrétien, Johnson and Rae were, in fact, working for the YES.

Once that independent businessman began to organize the rally, the guilty parties behind the “NO” had to save face by pitching in.  And that is the only reason they had to “prevail”.  Because otherwise, they’d have been caught, trying to lose.

Power Corp and their poodles the Liberals could not destroy Canada by themselves.  They needed someone to “fight” with to be seen “saving” Canada by pretending the “negotiations” would maintain its “unity”.

Having lost their man inside the Union Nationale party (Daniel Johnson Sr., who died before he could call a referendum), and their man Lesage and his Quebec Liberals whom the voters turfed out in 1966 (unaware that Lesage in 1961 had commissioned the very first stab at a communist plan to run Quebec’s economy), and who had offered the voters a “true national state” (as if to compete with the nationalist Union Nationale); the federal Liberals had no one capable of taking power in Quebec to play ball with.  Accordingly, they and Power Corporation were obliged to “invent” a new political playmate to continue their Canadian version of the world-government game.  They invented the “separatist” Parti Québécois, and René Lévesque to set it up and run it for them. 

<h2 style="text-align:center;padding-bottom:9px;padding-top:12px;"Pouring Oil on the "Separatist" Fire

Philpot reports that American agent E.C. Bittner’s dispatch to Washington quotes Power Corporation Vice President Claude Frenette, who was a member of the Liberal apparatus and of the secret committee:

The Liberal Party had established a secret committee to beat separatism in Quebec.”

He means the federal Liberal Party, which was led at that time by Lester Bowles Pearson, exposed as a Soviet agent in the U.S. MacCarran hearings, concerning which fact the FBI warned the RCMP, apparently to no avail.  First, is this really the “Liberal Party” at work?  Key federal ministers from Quebec are meeting Friday nights in Montreal on the business premises of a multinational corporation.  Is it normal for Big Business — for any business — to host a political party?  Let me rephrase that.  How about “own” a political party.  Or two.  Or more.  Is that legal?  Is that constitutional?  The answer is no, and it would take a few posts.  Let’s do that another day.

<h2 style="text-align:center;padding-bottom:9px;padding-top:12px;""Beating" Separatism or "Building" Separatism?

Second:  do you “beat” your opponent by giving him a political party; and also the press and headlines required to pursue his cause?  And by giving your opponent seats in the Quebec Legislature?  Do you legitimate your enemy by inviting him to pit his cause against the very existence of your country?  Is that “beating” your opponent?  Is that “marginalizing” René Lévesque?  Hardly.

They were building René Lévesque up; they created a new party and gave it a chance to destroy Canada for these corporate traitors.  Clearly, one side created the other side; one side, the “pro-Canadian-unity” corporate side, designed and launched its own “opponent”, the “separatist” side.  Both “sides” were working together.  Moreover, “pro-Canadian-unity” doesn’t mean the status quo; it means dismantle and refederate, focusing on the “refederate” part while ignoring the “dismantle” part, which obviously is the opposite of “unity”.

Bittner states that the “secret committee” wished to “discredit the separatist inclinations of the Estates General,” which is a French-Canadian patriotic institution.  And how did the “secret committee”, which admittedly “infiltrated” the Estates General, in fact do this?  How did it “discredit” the alleged “separatism” of the Estates General?

According to Bittner, the secret committee (Trudeau, Marchand, Sauvé, V.P. Frenette, and others not named) “incited [the Estates General] to take a position so radical with respect to separatism that it would be unbelievable.”

Philpot said in French, “incroyable” (unbelievable); he was obviously translating the Bittner dispatch, written in English.

In his own version of the Bittner dispatch, Jean-François Lisée says the secret committee encouraged the Estates General “to take a position on separatism so radical that it became shocking“:  “une position si radicale qu’elle en devienne choquante“.  He, too, is translating the dispatch.

Philpot says “unbelievable”, Lisée says “shocking”; we haven’t yet seen Bittner’s original English document.  I tried to get it from the U.S. archives and was told it’s in such a tattered state it can’t be handled.  Maybe, maybe not.  You would think they would photograph things that can’t be handled before they put them in the freezer, so that at least the photo could be consulted.

But the point is, do you “beat” your “separatist” opponent by infiltrating his organization to make it even more “separatist”, even more radical?  Do you deliberately escalate the alleged problem, in order to “beat” the problem?

In other words, do you pour oil on the fire, and then claim that you are trying to put the fire out?

Do you know when you are being taken?  And by whom?

Obviously, people like Philpot and Lisée like to write political pot-boilers.  It’s a living.  But, more than that, they are an integral part of Power Corporation’s controlled opposition.  They write controlled “history”.  Using a small core of facts, they spin the interpretation to be the opposite of reality.  The opposite of the obvious, and of common sense.  And then the public buys it, and the media lackeys gobble it up and obediently regurgitate the nonsense to affirm it.

The Canadian government and the Quebec government sponsor them with taxpayers’ dollars.  You are therefore paying these fellows to brainwash you for their own political ends.  And they tell some truth, or else they couldn’t call it a “documentary”, or “non” fiction.  But they can’t give the game away.  So, pretending to be Quebec nationalist patriots, they denounce the real perpetrator of the sovereignty gambit, so that you won’t see Power Corporation pulling all the “separatist” strings. 

<h2 style="text-align:center;padding-bottom:9px;padding-top:12px;""Canadian Unity" Goal A Fraud

The chief canard (as alluded to above) is the myth that Power Corporation and the Desmarais family are backers of “Canadian unity”.  Adding the adjective “Canadian” to the noun “unity” (which really means the European system and hides intent to dismantle the Provinces, to transfer their powers to Soviet-style mega-cities), does not transform it into anything remotely “Canadian” (i.e., as in 1867).

For the globalists, “Canadian unity” is in reality (but not openly recognized by the press) a euphemism for re-federation of Canada on the model of the nation-states of the EEC-EU (EUSSR) on the way to merger of the world under a single imposed system.  In other words, to get the European system done that they want, which merely represents a chunk of the new world-government system, Quebec has been hijacked by the Zionists and their corporate shills as a tool to restructure all of Canada.  The false “patriation” of 1982 is a chunk of the new world “constitution” also being imposed.  For more on Canada’s “False Patriation”, see “The Patriation and Legitimacy of the Canadian Constitution” (1982) in which author Barry Lee Strayer admits that the patriation was indeed illegal and a coup.

Indeed, the sole purpose of the “separatist” (Communist-led and corporate-fascist-backed) movement in Quebec under the aegis of Power Corporation with its cohort of Red Liberals and Socialist Rhodes Scholars, is to achieve re-federation using a Quebec UDI.  This trigger to “negotiate” the re-federation between the Desmarais-controled federal and Quebec “governments” explains the false pretext of “saving” “Canadian unity”:  while destroying your country, they want you to think they’re doing you a favor.

It should be noted, however, that Paul Desmarais is not the sole mover behind this agenda.  Peter Nesbitt Thomson who was CEO of Power Corporation in 1964 (and possibly even after 1967), has given speeches including to The Empire Club (1964) which indicate that he, too, was pushing the restructuring of Canada… a restructuring apparently also wanted by the KGB (Golitsyn) and the Canadian Council of Chief Executives (CCCE) [originally the Business Council on National Issues] of which Power Corporation is a founding member.

Therefore, the people in control of Power Corporation prior to the Desmarais clan are of equal interest.  In fact, at the time of the “secret committee” at Power in 1967, Peter Nesbitt Thomson was the controlling owner of Power Corporation; Desmarais was merely “on the point” of purchasing his control over Gesca (the newspaper line owned by Power); and would not purchase control of the rest of Power for another couple of years.  Which suggests that the original controlling owners, their heirs and successors, may still be in the shadows of the Desmarais enterprise even today.  So, if the Desmarais’ preference for the shadows ought to raise concern; of equal or more concern is the quite shadowy presence of Peter Nesbitt Thomson even before the arrival of the Desmarais.

For example, in February of 1964, Power Corp CEO Peter Nesbitt Thomson told The Empire Club that Canada should have a new constitution to accommodate Quebec’s (ethnic) aspirations.  In October of 1964, Mrs. Windsor (Queen Elizabeth IInd) speaking from the precinct of the Quebec provincial Legislature, and seeming to echo Nesbitt Thomson, offered Quebec a new constitution.  It might have been a generous token of concern were it not unconstitutional and solely aimed at getting the very same EUSSR restructuring done for the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Zionist bankers’ group based in London (UK) of which Mrs. Windsor is the (unconstitutionally) politically active and official “royal patron”.  Ditto for her father before her.

But then, her grandfather, King George V, at the urging of banker Ernst Cassell, financed the London School of Economics (LSE) founded by the pro-Soviet Beatrice and Sydney Webb to train the permanent bureaucrats of the future socialist state (i.e. the state minus free enterprise and representative government).  Jacques Parizeau was a graduate of the LSE.  As are and have been scads of unelected officials in the Canadian governing structure for a very many decades.  (We may one day have to call Mrs. Windsor “The Red Queen” for real.)

Below is my exclusive English translation of an extract from Philpot’s 2014 account of the “secret committee at Power“.  The bold and underlines are mine, added to signal the special control and influence of Power Corporation, which hands out the “Rhodes Scholarships” for Quebec and controls Quebec and Canadian politics; and possibly other provinces as well.  Rhodes Scholars have been at the helm of major destructive attacks on Canada, including the 1982 coup d’état presented as “patriation”; Trudeau’s War Measures in 1970; secularizing of Quebec’s constitutionally Catholic education system in 1965.  Thus, they have worked to denationalize Canada and de-culture Quebec for globalism.

Quebec premier Robert Bourassa (War Measures), said by author Philpot to have practically formed a government merger with Desmarais while in power, was a Rhodes Scholar who advocated the European Union system for North America; the very same as advocated by René Lévesque and Jacques Parizeau to replace Confederation, i.e., “sovereignty association” (1980 referendum) and “sovereignty partnership” (new euphemism) (1995 referendum) both pursued by the Communist Parti Québécois “founded” by the “secret committee” of Red Liberals at Power.  (It is said that Bourassa was unknown in Quebec 3 months before he became Premier.  Also, Pierre Trudeau was unknown in Canada at large shortly before he became prime minister at the instance of Power Corporation, because the “secret committee” on which Trudeau sat in 1967, which produced the PARTI QUEBECOIS, also produced Trudeau’s election team, and Power Corporation financed Trudeau’s campaign.)

CANADA How The Communists Took Control

By Alan Stang




CANADA How The Communists Took Control By Alan Stang, 1971

CANADA How The Communists Took Control By Alan Stang, 1971

It’s very exciting to finally be able to offer a complete scan of the original American Opinion offprint of Alan Stang’s “CANADA How The Communists Took Control,” published in 1971 at Belmont, Massachusetts.

The document has been hard to find.  It’s in two rare-book collections in Montreal, but the scanning fees demanded were prohibitive.  The cheapest was $5.00 per numbered page, the dearest $25.00 per numbered page.  So, till now, I’ve had to make do with the poorly scanned partial copy that I found online many years ago.

Inspired by this article, my first “Stang” site went online around 2011 in powrhost, a free WordPress host that doesn’t exist any more.  In fact, it was a miracle that I moved to a different host, a paid host, when I did.  Powrhost gave no notice before it went offline, taking all its web sites with it.

The Stang site then went up for about 18 months at Visiba, a host I would never recommend due to endless vandalism to my web sites on their servers.

I put a backup version of my Stang site into localhost (xampp) on July 11, 2014 and used it to launch this current site in the free service at WordPress.com, the same year.  A couple of weeks ago, I paid to upgrade to basic hosting (all it really does is remove the toe-fungus ads), and it comes with a new domain.  In fact, allcheapweb (wild west domains; secureservers) stole the first domain, nosnowinmoscow.com, on the last day before it expired, and it seems to now be in the hands of some Japanese guy who has put a junk site on it.

I shopped for Stang’s “Canada” item online again this week, not expecting to come up with it after all these years of nothing.  I needed a nice clean scan of the telegram of Jean-Louis Gagnon in the centerfold for the next segment of my article on Paul Fromm, a faux  conservative spy for the national police of Canada reporting to none other than Lester Bowles Pearson (Soviet agent) and Pierre Elliott Trudeau (Red Millionaire), heading our communist-penetrated federal government of Canada.

But, this time, I got lucky.  There were at least three copies for sale through Amazon.  But Amazon denied my attempts to buy any of the three, claiming no delivery to Canada!

I searched online again because I’ve learned something:  many sub-sellers of Amazon, and of other book dealers online, feature the same document at multiple retailers.  Lo and behold, I found the Stang reprint right away at Willis Monie Books (www.wilmonie.com) for an amazing $5.00 USD (five yankee bucks)!  I added ten more yankee bucks for International Priority Mail and received it hand-to-hand from the postman (or should I say post-lady) today, Friday, November 1st, 2019, in great condition.

Monie did a good job of wrapping the little offprint in clear cellophane and stiff cardboard slid into a padded bubble envelope.  That’s nice service for five bucks.

Robert E. Updike (signature)

The original offprint is tiny, only about 6″ x 9″ folded, stapled and trimmed.  The front cover is navy blue and white with black text.  Everything else is black and white.  The signature of the previous owner in very elegant handwritten script is on the cover, between the title and Stang’s name as author.  The signature seems to be Robert E. Updike.  So, Bob, if you’re out there, thanks very much for the copy!

I’ve scanned it at 200 dpi (removed the signature from the cover scan) and OCR’d the little pamphlet, then put it online for free at SCRIBD, thus the pamphlet is embedded, above.  The original of the pamphlet, which I no longer need, has been donated to the Quebec Archives.  They have one copy in preservation at their Rare Books facility in Montreal; now they have another.

Also fun to have are the full-page ads at the back of the brochure for two books by Western Islands, G. Edward Griffin’s The Fearful Master, A Second Look at the United Nations; and The C.F.R. [The Council on Foreign Relations] Conspiracy To Rule The World  by Dan Smoot.  A third ad makes me want to go shop for this one:  Robert Welch’s The Politician, first out in 1963.

I hope you enjoy the new word-searchable, complete copy of CANADA How the Communists Took Control by Alan Stang, hosted here at “No Snow in Moscow,” the Canadian web site in Stang’s honor.  The pamphlet is also embedded on the About tab, top menu.

Oh, yes, and one great perk that came with the issue is the short blurb inside the front cover.  “About the author” says:

Alan Stang is a former business editor for Prentice-Hall, Inc., and has written, produced, and done research for network radio and television.  Mr. Stang is an AMERICAN OPINION Contributing Editor and is author of the Western Islands bestsellers, It’s Very Simple and The Actor.  Author Stang, who earned his B.A. at City College of New York and his Masters at Columbia University, spent months researching this article and interviewed authorities on the scene in Canada.

Reprints of this copyrighted article, Canada  by Alan Stang, are available at the following prices:  One to 99 copies, three for one dollar; 100-999 copies, twenty-five cents each; 1,000 or more copies, twenty cents each.
