AND THAT'S MY TAKE" (NEW GULAGS ANNOUNCED FOR CANADA)
2010 by Curtis Sagmeister. All Rights Reserved.
Fresh from their Police State beta tests at the G8 and G20 conferences, Canada has just announced it will spend billions of dollars it doesn't have to build and operate more federal prisons. This is a perplexing course of action, given that Statistics Canada figures clearly show that crime in the country is down significantly. Does Stockwell Day, Treasury Board President and the career politician who made the announcement, know of an impending need for gulags that he is not sharing with us little people?
Day, showing what can only be described as a warped sense of reality, claimed that statistics confirming a decline in crime in Canada are not accurate because he has information that victims are not reporting crimes, and that is why it appears crime is reduced.
Will building more prisons suddenly convince all these alleged victims to report crimes? Preposterous.
There is only one reason to be building new prison facilities, and that is if our government knows there will be a sharp increase in demand to house our wayward souls. How would our government be able to foresee such demand contrary to official statistics? Only if they created the demand.
There might have been a time when such a line of thought would have been considered paranoid. But times have indeed changed. One only has to look at how the so-called "security' forces that operated during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games and a few months later in the Toronto area's hosting of the G8 and G20 summits. Both events included subversive tactics by government and their jackboots, including the passage of new laws in virtual secrecy intent on making criminals out of otherwise law-abiding citizens.
One of the things the security forces of these two events could agree on was that their detention facilities were insufficiently small to house the numbers of people subjected to experiments in the suppression of personal rights and freedoms. That is all about to change with Day's announcement and slippery spending. Now, Canada will have permanent gulags capable of meeting the challenges of the coming Police State.
And that's my take.
