Trudeau & Vallières: A Socialist Soap-Opera?

Trudeau & Vallières: A Socialist Soap-Opera?

October 1969 proved to be a trying month for Prime Minister Pierre-Elliott Trudeau (“a herd of anes savants to file in when the division bell rang”), largely because of two major embarrassments. The first was having a subpoena served upon him to appear as a character witness in the hearing of a petition for bail for Pierre VallièresMontreal, along with his Secretary of State, the suave Gerard Pelletier (“any suspicion of witch-hunting or McCarthyism will be dealt with immediately”). The second major headache for the Lord Protector of the Realm was the charge levelled by the Chairman of Montreal’s Executive Committee, Lucien Saulnier, that the federal Company of Young Canadians was engaged in “subversive activities” and that “Federal Government funds were supporting a Communist campaign to overthrow Canada” (Cf. TELEGRAM , Oct. 14, 1969). In this charge, Mr. Saulnier was to be seconded by dozens of municipal administrations in la Belle Province, and it was to receive dramatic amplification from T.R. Anthony Malcolm, Vice-President of the Quebec Section of the Liberal Federation of Canada and Co-Chairman of the anti-secessionist Canada Committee, when he told a flabbergasted meeting of the Town of Mount Royal Women’s Club (Trudeau’s home town) that “training, finance, and assistance of every sort is being given members of the separatist movement in Quebec by sources in Cuba. In addition, funds and assistance are also funnelled into Quebec from Algeria.” He also charged that El Fatah, the Arab fascist terror organization in the Middle East was coordinating its work with that of Quebec’s national socialists, and had contributed $1,500.00 to help iinance “Operation McGill” last March. The block-buster, as far as Trudeau was concerned, however, was his publication of a list of 27 alleged Maoists who have been or still are on the federal payroll as employees of the Company of Young Canadians. It was a fine example of courageous McCarthyism, and Mr. Malcolm is to be heartily commended for having had the guts to speak out.

EAST WIND OVER MONTREAL

To deal with the first of these items, l’affaire Vallières, and Trudeau’s connection with it, a little excursion into recent history is required. In a sense, one might say that it all began with veteran Stalinist agent, Jean-Louls Gagnon (recently appointed as Co-Chairman of the Roval Commission on Bilingualism & Biculturalism by Trudeau), who had fled to Brazil in 1945 when the historic Gouzenko revelations had exposed the seditious activities of two of his close comrades, Fred Rose (“The Communist Party of Canada carries on despite persecution”) and Professor Raymond Boyer (“I made contributions”), and returned to Canada in 1948.* With the heat off, he resumed his political work, and two years later become editor of the Quebec Liberal.Party LA REFORME. Ten years later (1958), he became editor of the prestigious family newspaper, LA PRESSE, of Montreal, the largest French language daily in the new world. It was he who originally hired Pierre Vallières to join the staff of LA PRESSE. A vicious, pugnacious young leftwing nazi and anticleric, Vallières had refused to sit for his examinations for his B.A. because he considered that the religious and philosophic examinations were offensive to his fanatic and unyielding atheist faith. In 1962, Trudeau’s old buddy, Pelletier, became editor of LA PRESSE, and kept Vallières on staff. To appreciate the full significance of these years, the early sixties, and of the cast of characters in this sordid chronicle, it is important to remember that from 1960 to 1965, “secret meetings” were convened in Pelletier’s suburban Westmount home, involving, apart from Pelletier himself, such stirling citizens as Rene Levesque (“Too many people are playing with violence like sorcerers’ apprentices”), who was then Minister of Natural Resources in the LeSage Cabinet (it was in the course of these meetings that Levesque decided to socialize Quebec’s power companies), Pierre-Elliott Trudeau, Jean Marchand (“To regard me as a stranger in Quebec is as stupid as it is ridiculous”), and … Jean Louis Gagnon (Cf. DAILY STAR, April 8, 1968; TRUDEAU: A MAN FOR TOMORROW, by Douglas Stuecing, with John Marshall & Gary Oakes; Clarke. Irwin & Co., Toronto, 1968). Pelletier, who was collaborating closely with Trudeau in editing the latter’s highbrow little magazine, CITE LIBRE, was probably instrumental in bringing Vallières to Trudeau’s attention and getting him to hire Vallières to work on the magazine in September 1963. He stayed with it until March of the following year, 1964, when he walked out with eleven (!!!) other writers who disagreed vehemently with Trudeau’s thesis that Trotskyism could only be built in Canada through the instrumentality of

the federal government (“a change of attitude to federalism still seems to be required within the ranks of Canadian socialism”). Vallières and his friends, par contre, were opting for the official leftist line according to which the secessionist movement in Quebec was to be warped into the pattern of those phoney “national liberation” enterprises by means of which the Red warlords hope, in time, to convert Quebec into a continental Cuba, cut off from the federal Canadian state, and which, in the global chessgame of Stalinist geopolitical strategy, would secure them a northern flank in their long term plan to encircle and isolate the United States of America, their ultimate, Number One target. It was two months later, in May (1964), that Trudeau published his famous essay, SEPARATIST COUNTER-REVOLUTIONARIES (which now forms the final chapter of his book, FEDERALISM AND THE FRENCH CANADIANS), thereby sealing the rift with his former friends who repudiated his federal strategy in favour of the phoney “separatist” line, designed to consign Quebec to the status of a province of the Socialist Camp. Let us remember, however, that just as Trudeau had not disputed the validity of the pro-Peiping and anti-American purposes of his demon­strator-antagonists at the Seaforth Armouries in Vancouver, similarly he does not and never has reproached these “separatist counter-revolutionaries” for their Trotskyism, out merely for their refusal to submit to his federal strategy (“If the whole of the Canadian electorate could miraculously be converted to socialist ideals in one fell swoop, there would be no reason to discuss strategy”). Like the quarrel oetween the Kremlin and Mao, from the point of view of Canadian freedom, this too is basically what someone has called “a quarrel about funeral arrangements.” A year later, upon invitation of Pearson’s then Secretary oi State, Maurice Lamontagne, (“Federal Liberals should arop their opposition to the ‘two nations’ concept and ‘special status’ for Quebec — battles they have already lost — and concentrate on federal planning for the age of abundance”) and accompanied by his buddies Pelletier and Marchand, Trudeau moved into the leadership ranks of the federal Liberal Party, in a strategically Fabian move which was to vault the Trotskyite trio to the pinnacle of political power in this country.

The extraordinary intrusion of these notorious non-Liberals (no French-speaking Riding would accept Trudeau as a “Liberal” candidate; he had to be “parachuted” into MOUNT ROYAL, a carpetbagging manoeuvre bitterly resented by veteran Liberals) into the Pearson administration did raise a few knowledgeable eyebrows: one political observer charged the Liberals “with forcing Canadians down the road to socialism”, and that “The Government is not leaning to the left, it’s rushing pell-mell to the left.” The entrance of the “three wise men” into the Liberal ruling junta, he said, was “a clear sign that the Pearson Government had swung hard to the left.” Referring directly to Messrs. Trudeau, Marchand and Pelletier, he did not mince his words: “They are all Socialists, and they are all on record as being opposed to the Prime Minister and the present Government.” Ron Gostlck? Lubor Zink? Charles Lynch? Some besotted “McCarthyite”? Fasten your safety belt: it was no less a progressive than the National President of the Progressive Conservative Association, Dalton Camp (Cf. TELEGRAM, Oct. 6, 1965). Of course, In 1965, it was still safe to say such things. At that time those who were sujsequently to abdicate their reason and submit to the irrational cult of Trudeaumanic chauvinism didn’t know Trudeau from a dyspeptic dentist from Trois Rivieres; the Machiavellian “Messiah” had not yet been revealed to the gentiles.

LAVENDER AND OLD LEFT

However, back in 1963, Vallières was a very busy young Maoist, having played a leading role in the founding of the Marcusean magazine PARTI PRIS (“Side Taken”), soon to become notorious for its juvenitarian Jacobinism, its aura of “revolutionary” action, and its espousal of “the language of hatred… which led us to Marxism…” (Cf. ANDRE MAJOR, essay, WEAPONS IN HAND, in Stalinist symposium, QUEBEC STATES HER CASE, MacMlllan of Canada, Toronto, 1964) and which was to eclipse Trudeau’s CITE LIBRE in Quebec’s leftist literary firmament. (In the course of its colourful career, the latter had featured some picturesque contri­butors indeed, among whom were to be found Prof. Raymond Boyer, convicted Stalinist spy, Stanley Ryerson (“‘Marxist interpretation of the History of Canada”), leading theoretician of the Canadian section of the Communist Party and editor of the MARXIST REVIEW, Pierre Gelinas , Quebec director of Agitation and Propaganda for the Party, as well as the TELEGRAM’S Trudeaumaniac-in-Residence, John D. Harbron (“The big corporations knew the CCCL wes dominated by men of a basic ideology geared to socialism, some of it of the virulent European variety”), and author of THIS IS TRUDEAU

(Longman’s Canada Ltd., Don Mills, 1967). PARTI PRIS was launched at the University of Montreal which is to Quebec what Simon Fraser is to British Columbia, a seething cesspool of Maoist propaganda and intrigue. Vallières has revealed that “some members of the FLQ were present”, at its birth, as was Michel Chartrand of the Quebec CCF-NDP, now known as the Parti Socialiste de Quebec. So closely was Vallières associated with PARTI PR1S and the Maoist Klatsch publishing it, that an article of his was featured in its iirst Issue (February 10, 1963). Note the date: February; the following autumn he joined Trudeau and Pelletier at CITE LIBRE. By 1965, Vallières was editor of yet another Machiavellian mag, REVOLUTION QUEBECOISE.

By 1966, the Maoist FLQ was alive and well, and the nation was shocked and horrified at the wave of bombings and terror it unleashed in Quebec. The directors ol its terror apparatus were Vallières and Charles Gagnon, formerly a Professor of Literature on the Social Science Faculty of the U. of M. Gagnon was also one of the bosses of the Maoist-controlled UNION GENERALE DES ETUDIANTS DE QUEBEC (UGZQ), which spawned the Student Workers of Quebec, the Quebec counterpart of the Company of Young Canadians. He was also the official coordinator of the Bureau d’amenagement de I’Est du Quebec, (Eastern Quebec Planning Bureau) (BAEQ) which is affiliated with the federal project, ARDA. By then, Vallières and Gagnon were running PARTI PRIS, and the U. Of M. Campus had become notorious as the principle recruiting ground for FLQ terrorists. They were also active in the People’s Liberation Movement, apparently formed from a number of Maoist groups, one of which was the Independent Socialist Committee, founded by Mario Bachand, now residing in Havana. Bachand is a convicted terrorist, a veteran of the Company of Young Canadians, which, according to Anthony Malcolm, is still paying the rent on the headquarters of his Committee at 2100 rue St. Denis in Montreal! One of the leaders oi the PLM is Stanley Gray (“fascists” who is so popular with the Canada Council, and who is planning mass demonstrations before the Palais de Justice in Montreal in November to demand the release of Messrs. Vallières and Gagnon, and other fascist fifth columnists facing criminal charges. (No shrinking violet lie.) PLM is alleged by Mr. Malcolm to be in close contact with Quisling Robert Favreau, now resident in Moscow, and a former leader of the Part y’s Komsomols (Young Communists) in Quebec. Bachand checked out for Soviet-occupied Cuba last spring, following “Operation McGill” last March, which Malcolm alleges was partly financed by El Fatah, (Now, do you understand. Rabbi Feinberg?). The PLM serves as the visible, above-ground, “legal” front for the FLQ, distinct from its undercover apparat, according to classic Communist formula.

In September of 1966, Vallières and Gagnon were arrested in New York, where they had picketed the United Nations with placards announcing that they were on a hunger strike, which was supposed to have something to do with winning success for the FLQ’s campaign of Red terror in Quebec. They successfully stalled extradition to Canada on murder charges for many, many months (they probably decided to go to New York to avoid arrest in Montreal), while almost a dozen Red terrorists were arrested and tried in Montreal. Among them was Serge Demers who described himself as a leader of the FLQ’s “action network” and who testified at his trial that a training camp for red fifth columnists was in operation near Montreal, where they were drilled in the living thoughts of Mao Tse-tung (The Sino-Japanese war gives us, the Chinese Communists, an excellent opportunity for expansion”) and the late and unlamented Che Guevara (If the rockets had remained, we would have used them against the very heart of the USA, including New York”).

In March 1963, Vallières was brought to trial for the murder on May 5,1968 of 64 year old Therese Morin, a receptionist at the La Grenade Shoe Co., when a bomb was exploded on her desk at the Company’s office by a terror squad commanded by Vallières. In the course of the trial, he was identified as “the leader of a Quebec guerilla band that trained in a bush camp in the Laurentians in 1966” where police found a cache of arms and explosives (Cf. TELEGRAM, March 4, 1968, page 10). Gagnon, Vallières’ partner in Communist crime, was also charged in the same murder, as well as with manslaughter in the death of 16 year old Jean Corbo, an agent of the FLQ who was killed by the premature explosion of a bomb he was detailed to plant on the premises of the Dominion Textile Co. in Montreal’s St. Henri quarter in July of 1966. Gagnon (“better late than never”) was acquitted of the latter charge last April, and is presumably awaiting trial in the Morin case.

L’AFFAIRE Vallières: A STALINIST SKELETON IN TRUDEAU’S CLOSET?

Readers of this bulletin may recall mention of the Vallières case in our issue for June 1968, when our then columnist, “El Gusano”, pointed out that “Trudeau appeared on a list of proposed witnesses given to Mr. Justice Yves Leduc by Pierre Vallières in the course of his trial for murder last March. Nothing more was heard of this, of course, for Trudeau was Minister of Justice! …The Vallières trial is perhaps one of the most important political-criminal events in Canada today, yet our press maintains a virtual silence about it. Why is that, do you suppose? the same xxxxxxx we published our first and now famous Trudeau Fact Sheet, EAST WIND OVER OTTAWA, which referred to Vallières’ attempt to have Trudeau called as a character witness in his defence, and which asked, “did (Trudeau) testify? Was he ever called?” Well, the answer would seem to be: no, he wasn’t, and it is scarcely difficult to understand his reluctance to having his former protege focus a spotlight of public scrutiny on these sinister seditious associations of his recent past. In March 1968, Vallières was conducting his own defence, a role which permitted him to grandstand histrionically in the grand Marxist manner (maybe that’s where Gary Perlv got the idea), and he submitted a list of proposed character witnesses which included, apart from Glorious Pierre, a number of members of the faculty of the U. of M., Gerard Pelletier, who was then Parliamentary Secretary to External Affairs Minister Paul Martin [Senior: ed.] (“I have been caught in the generation gap”), and Marcel Pepin, who runs the Maoist-controlled Congres des Svndicaux Nationaux (Congress of National Trade Unions). Vallières was convicted in April of last year, and sentenced to life imprisonment. The following month, May, a couple of dozen well-known actors and singers staged a benefit at Montreal’s Gesu Theatre under the auspices of secessionist singing star, Pauline Julien and Jacques Larue-Langlois, a producer with the Canadian Broadcasting Cor­poration (Radio-Canada) who was fired last year, and alleged by Anthony Malcolm to be a contact man between Quebec’s national socialists and the American Black Panther Party, which is suspected of providing financial aid and training in arson and sabotage to FLQ terrorists (the Demers trial revealed that Vallières and Gagnon travelled extensively abroad, and often the FLQ held top level strategy meetings in that historic quaint old Quebec town, Rochester, N.Y., where contact with the Black Panthers would have been absurdly convenient). Called “Poems and Songs of Resistance” (why not “of Liberation”?), the money to be raised by the benefit was to finance Vallières’ appeal for a new trial. Among the dlstinguished participants were such luminaries as the actress Ginette Letondal, Helene Loiselle, and Lionel Villeneuve. The tone of the circus was set in the opening tableau: “All the artists stood on stage listening to an actor recite the words of the judge who sentenced Vallières. And then one by one, each artist spoke the names of all those who, since 1960, have been sent to jail for terrorist activities in support of the separatist movement… The sentiment ran from simple independence to revolution that would establish a socialist state in Quebec (for which there was mention of Castro and Mao and the rest of today’s revol­utionary heros).” (Cf. Gordon Sheppard, TELEGRAM, June 1, 1968). The fascist fervour of the audience knew no bounds when the Quattuor du Nouveau Jazz Libre swung into a groovy jazz rendition of that famous old French-Canadian folk song, L’Internationale.

LORD ELLIOTT SENDS HIS REGRETS

Last September 24th (1969), five Justices of the Quebec Court of Appeal ruled that Vallières be granted a new trial (for which no date has yet been set). Now repre­sented by hotshot lawyer, Robert Lemieux (who last spring defended convicted terror­ist Pierre-Paul Geoffroy, who had pleaded guilty to all charges when arraigned, and who has been granted leave to appeal his sentence of life imprisonment by the Court of Appeal), Vallières had subpoenas served on Messrs. Trudeau and Pelletier to testify on his behalf in a hearing of his petition for bail, and it must have shaken these gentlemen to have this nagging ghost pop up again to place their respectable “Liberal” image in jeopardy once more.

Subsequently, on October 6th, Judge Paul Trepanier entertained a petition from the President of the Quebec Bar, no less, Maitre Jean Martineau, acting for the PM [Trudeau] , requesting that his illustrious client be dispensed from complying with the subpoena, which dispensation seems to have been granted. (It is amusing to note, parenthetically, that on Sept. 17th last, the Union Nationale** Cabinet in Quebec city named Trudeau a Queen’s Counsel in honour of his “26 years of law practice”. These venerable old Duplessistes must have had their tongues in their cheeks; in his whole lifetime Trudeau has never opened a law office, and has practiced about as much law, in those 26 years, as the late Robert F. Kennedy did in his lifetime, i.e., hardly any at all! Quoth Quebec Minister of Justice, Remi Paul: “It simply means that the Bar of the Province of Quebec is proud to see one of its members in such high office.”

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL LENINIST?

If this dispensaton established some kind of legal precedent (which it may very well have done), it could scarcely be more astonishing than the fact that a Prime Minister of Canada should be subpoenaed as a character witness in a bail hearing for a convicted collectivist killer, whose anarcho-statist crimes have been committed in the course of his seditious services in a fascist fifth column pursuing the anti-Western purposes of the Red warlords of the Socialist Camp!

Trudeau’s affidavit requesting dispensation from his legal obligation to appear was interesting, to say the least: “I am unable to provide any evidence whatsoever which would be pertinent to the petition of the defendant, Pierre Vallières; I do not believe I have seen or spoken with the defendant for five years; The only times I had occasion to speak with him involved the magazine CITE LIBRE, which the defendant managed for some months; I did not know the defendant before having met him in the circumstances mentioned in the preceding paragraph…” Brave words, bravely uttered, but it is surely stretching credulity to the point of absurdity to expect us to believe that Vallières got the job at CITE LIBRE, Trudeau’s pet project for a number of years, by answering a Help Wanted ad in LA PRESSE! In his effort to strike the right muted key in his affidavit, Trudeau, as usual, overdoes it, and plunges into bathos with the same grand style he made famous during the election campaign at Motel swimming pools: “I am a mere citizen, and as such, subject to all the laws of my country,”, but. my appearance in court for the hearing of the defendant’s application would cause me to waste, uselessly, a part of the time which I must devote to my duties…” How’s that for humility? “a mere citizen… subject to all the laws of my country”! (Vancouver papers, please copy! ).

Needless to say, this did not go down too well with Maitre Lemieux, who nevertheless demonstrated some surprising naivete (or pretended to): “How can the Prime Minister ask to be excused from testifying? He doesn’t know the questions we wish to ask him”, which is precisely why, of course, Trudeau is bending every effort to avoid being dragged to the witness stand. When he attempted to argue the cogency of his client’s subpoena, Lemieux didn’t get too far with Judge Trepanier. “At the time of the changeover of authority in the management of CITE LIBRE”, he began, “we are in possession of a speech which Pierre-Elliott Trudeau…”, at which point the judge cut him off, asserting that he would hear all arguments in the course of the hearing, and then decide if the PM’s presence” at the hearing would be required. (Everyone, but everyone, is trying so hard to be considerate to Mere Citizen Trudeau, to spare him any avoidable embarrassment.!).

CAN PIERRE-ELLIOTT TRUDEAU EVER FORGET PIERRE Vallières AND FIND HAPPINESS?

Annoyed at the Court’s apparent acceptance of Trudeau’s disclaimer, Maitre Lemieux did not mince his words when interviewed by the CBC’s network radio news broadcast, THE WORLD AT SIX, in which he pointed out that Trudeau had hired Vallières in 1963 to work on CITE LIBRE, that Vallières was then employed by Pelletier at LA PRESSE, that Tiudeau was busy on the faculty of the U. of M. at the time, and that they were a cosy threesome who “did everything together”. Outside the courtroom, Jacques Larue-Langlois (vide supra), Chairman of the.Comite d’aide au groupe Vallières et Gagnon, (Committee for Aid to the Vallières-Gagnon Group) distributed a leaflet with the plaintive lament, “Thus does the Prime Minister coldly turn his back on a former comrade and collaborator.” The whole episode is reported in MONTREAL MATIN (October 7th) under the by-line of Roger Guil featuring the intriguing headline: TRUDEAU TRIES TO WEASEL OUT BUT GERARD PELLETIER WILL BE THERE! With characteristic French-Canadian impishness, the editor has inserted a crosshead in the story which is from the Bible: the words of St. Peter denying the Saviour in the courtyard of the High Priest, “I do not know the man!” Without wishing to minimize the gravity of l’affaire Vallières and the serious crimes with which the man is charged, the whole episode does smack of… of what? Pinkerton abandoning Madame Butterfly? Father Flanagan turning his back on Mickey Rooney? So many comic parallels suggest themselves… However, in the real, sober, no-nonsense world of Stalinist subversion and sedition, in the murky, Machiavellian atmosphere of the fever swamp of Quebec’s militant Left, peopled by morally retarded intellectuals, dilettantes, and hard-headed godless gangsters, there is nothing funny about Pierre Vallières and what makes him run, and in the final analysis, there is nothing funny about Trudeau. Nor can we be amused at the failure of our English-language press to keep us informed on what must surely be the hottest political story since l’affaire Munsinger. To our knowledge, not one Toronto paper has had the journalistic wit to get an interview with Vallières counsel, Robert Lemieux, a young man who has something to say, something which all Canadians have a right to know about.

Simon Reisman (FTA negotiator) Suspected Communist Subversive: RCMP

Exclusive to
“No Snow in Moscow”

I have obtained an authentic copy of an old draft article by noted journalist Peter Worthington (born February 16, 1927) which contains names of suspected Communists in the federal government of Canada, as revealed in the RCMP’s now-quashed “Featherbed File”.

Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau squelched the Featherbed file with an Order-in-Council before he left office.  Trudeau himself was named in it as a suspected Communist subversive.

Many headlines could be drawn from this article. However, the one that comes to my mind first is that Sol Simon Reisman, who negotiated the Canada-US Free Trade Agreement (FTA), was a suspected Communist subversive. RCMP Featherbed investigators objected in vain to the renewal of Reisman’s high-level security clearance with the federal government of Canada.

In 1982, Trudeau ordered a royal commission convened:  the Royal Commission on the Economic Union and Development Prospects for Canada, known as the Macdonald Commission, and chaired by Trudeau’s friend and co-Bilderberger, Liberal Minister of Finance, Donald Stovel Macdonald.

The Macdonald Commission reported to Conservative Prime Minister Brian Mulroney in 1985.  It recommended free trade with the USA, and the conversion of Canada to a socialist welfare state.

In May of 1986, Canadian and American negotiators began to work out a so-called trade deal, known as the Canada-US Free Trade Agreement (FTA).  The Canadian team was led by former deputy Minister of Finance Simon Reisman and the American side by Peter O. Murphy, former deputy United States trade representative in Geneva.

The FTA was deepened by the coming into force on January 1, 1994 of NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement involving Canada, the USA and Mexico, and spanning the continent.

A number of informed and well placed observers have identified the NAFTA and the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) which followed it on the pretext of so-called terrorist attacks of September 2001, as the building blocks of a North American Union modeled on the European Union.  Today, The European Union is called both Marxist and “post-democratic” by some members of the press and intellectuals such as Professor John Fonte.

American Charlotte Iserbyt has warned of an impending North American Soviet Union, citing Mikhail Gorbachev who in 2002 called the European Union the “New European Soviet”.

American-Lithuanian Vilius Bražėnas viewed the series of trade deals on this continent in a similar light.  Bražėnas, a survivor of Communism, died on October 3, 2010 at the age of 97.  In his final passionate articles, he warned against the FTA, NAFTA, the FTAA and related trade-zone accords as tantamount to a multiple coup-d’état which in the end would impose a Communist regional union in North America.

Former Soviet dissident, Vladimir Bukovsky, who survived over a decade as a prisoner of Soviet mental hospitals, has warned on video and in print that the European Union is “the old Soviet model in western guise.”

Is anyone listening? I know I am.

U.S. Congressman Lawrence Patton McDonald, April 1 1935 to September 1, 1983

U.S. Congressman Lawrence Patton McDonald, April 1 1935 to September 1, 1983

In particular because U.S. Congressman Lawrence Patton McDonald in 1983 publicly warned America that the Marxist Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Marxist Trilateral Commission and other related non-governmental entities were pushing for a Communist regional union through a series of apparently harmless trade deals.

In the words of Congressman McDonald himself on Crossfire, speaking of the CFR and related circles of elites:
 

“[T]heir objective is to try to bring about a gradual transition in our society -– a dissolving of sovereignty -– and a moving steadily to the left on the political spectrum.”

Canada’s FTA under Reisman certainly shifts Canada to the left while initiating the North American merger process.

Speaking specifically of the CFR during an interview with Larry McDonald on the television program Crossfire, McDonald said:

Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)[Y]ou are looking at a group (the CFR et als) that has worked to bring about a dissolution of national sovereignties on the road to world government.”

McDonald then quotes Arthur Schlesinger in the May-June 1947 issue of the Partisan Review:

”He [Schlesinger] said that the objective -– the secret policy of which we can’t tell the American public because they’re not sophisticated enough to see the value — is that through a steady result of erosion of NEW DEALS, we bring the American society steadily to the left, and through a signed concept of benign containment, we merge into the vital center of the socialist left.  Those were his words, not mine.”

Congressman McDonald continues further on replying to Crossfire host Pat Buchanan’s question whether the concept of the UN as the basis of a world government is not passé:

”Well, I think there are those who realize that moving straight from a prototype of the United Nations into world government perhaps is tactically impossible.  But phasing out increasingly national sovereignty into REGIONAL GOVERNMENT and phasing out sovereignties into international treaties ….” is the order of the day.

Today, with these warnings in mind, I invite you to read Peter Worthington’s old draft article exposing the chief negotiator of the FTA — which forms the initial basis of a clearly incoming REGIONAL UNION in North America — as someone the RCMP had warned the federal government not to trust because he likely was a Communist subversive.

However, the warnings fell on deaf ears, no doubt because the very Prime Minister’s Office the RCMP attempted to alert was itself already infested with one-world government types and suspected Communist subversives such as Soviet agent Lester B. Pearson, and Soviet mole Pierre Elliott Trudeau.

As a consequence, the very basis of Communist regional union in North America was negotiated by someone Canada’s national police and security apparatus long believed to be a Communist subversive.

Following is an exclusive typed transcript made by me from Worthington’s own typed, draft article, which he hand-edited.

For ease of reading, i am retyping the draft clean, without indicating Mr. Worthington’s deletions and insertions.  Images and captions have been added by me.

TRANSCRIPT — DRAFT — THE FEATHERBED FILE
by Peter Worthington (circa 1979)

(Scan of actual draft article is embedded below)

Operation Featherbed, a 14-year RCMP investigation into suspected subversives in high places, tried to warn the federal government it was being systematically infiltrated.

Trudeau, Pearson, Diefenbaker ignore RCMP warnings of high-level communist penetration of Canada

Trudeau, Pearson, Diefenbaker ignore RCMP warnings of high-level communist penetration of Canada

But the governments of John Diefenbaker, Lester Pearson, and Pierre Trudeau dismissed the Featherbed warnings as unsubstantiated Communist witch-hunting.

Besides, it would have been too embarrassing to repudiate people their governments had promoted to positions of influence.

Featherbed suspected that Communist infiltration of the federal bureaucracy had been set in train in 1923 with the co-option of O.D. Skelton, renowned as the “father of the civil service”.

The Featherbed analysts concluded that over the years, any promising “agents of influence” were talent-spotted at Communist study clubs in universities and brought into the civil service.

Inside, a shadowy network promoted “birds of a feather,” which gave the operation its code-name.

Robert Bryce (1984)

Among the more prominent (civil servant) subjects of Featherbed investigation were Robert Bryce, who rose from the Finance Ministry to the top post as cabinet secretary; his successor as deputy minister of finance, Sol Simon Reisman; and the husband-and-wife team of Bernard and Sylvia Ostry.1

Operation Featherbed also plumbed the pasts of prime ministers Lester Pearson and Pierre Trudeau — Trudeau for his travels to Warsaw, Moscow, Peking and Havana, Pearson for allegedly having supplied information while a diplomat, that was transmitted to Moscow by a U.S. spy ring.

(Trudeau once called for his Featherbed file, “chuckled” as he read the report about his travels, associations and indiscretions, and sent it back to RCMP files).

Featherbed began as a search for suspected Communist subversives in the hierarchy of the civil service, branched out delving into university professors, lawyers, the media and trade unions.

It involved extensive surveillance, wiretapping and bugging under the code-name Operation Mercury (Featherbed was the analytical side).  The winnowed-down conclusions were summarized in a thick, black-edged book that held the names of 245 “professional” people as members of the Communist Party secret underground in Canada.

Not all the subjects of initial investigation found their way into the wrap-up black book.

Featherbed opened files on 87 CBC staffers as suspected subversives but there was no evidence of any operating network and only a handful were named in the final summation.

And Featherbed never learned the identity of “our agent in Canadian Press” that Communist Party of Canada chief Tim Buck frequently boasted about to his mistress, Bess Nascolo.  A bug in Nascolo’s house on Jones Ave., Toronto, picked up the drunken boasts after a shipment of Russian embassy vodka.

Featherbed believed that Lewis Rasminsky, former governor of the Bank of Canada, was only flirting with Communism when he attended party cell meetings in the Depression, as many disillusioned people did, and that he had rejected the ideology.

After a Featherbed investigation, the RCMP Security Service blocked the intended 1969 appointment of Grace Hartman to the government’s national commission on the status of women.  She became head of the Canadian Union of Public Employees.

Featherbed also conducted an investigation of Shirley Carr, vice-president of the Canadian Labor Congress.

What prompted Featherbed’s start in 1958 was an accusation by the U.S. Senate Internal Sub-Committee that Robert Bryce had been a member of a Communist closed party cell at Harvard university in 1935-37.

Herbert Norman, a known Communist, killed himself rather than expose 70 or more other Soviet agents

The subcommittee the previous year had cited Herbert Norman, then ambassador to Cairo, as a Communist.

Norman leaped to his death in Cairo a day after he told his doctor that if he were called to testify in a royal commission, he would to identify 60 to 70 Canadians as Communists.

Norman was a good friend of Lester Pearson and Robert Bryce and Pearson’s denunciation of U.S. interference in Canadian affairs caused the jittery RCMP brass to sever relations with the FBI.

When they were resumed, the FBI handed the information about the Silvermaster spy ring to the RCMP.  The ring’s courier, Elizabeth Bentley, told the FBI that Norman was a source of information sent to Moscow.

She also said that she had reported to her Soviet at spy handlers that Pearson also had been a source of information, along with John Grierson, head of the National Film Board, and his secretary, Freda Linton.

Featherbed was launched with the concept that the Silvermaster ring — which led to the indictments of Alger Hiss, assistant to the U.S. Secretary of State, and Harry Dexter White, a senior official in the U.S. Treasury Department — had its counterpart in Ottawa.

The initial investigation turned up 12 suspected equivalents in the Ottawa civil service hierarchy.  The files on the dozen were taken away by W. H. Kelly, director of RCMP Security and Intelligence, and never returned to Featherbed investigators.

After the U.S. subcommittees naming Bryce, he voluntarily went to RCMP headquarters to explain.

He admitted having attended Communist party study cells at Harvard and contended to his RCMP questioners that “you’re making too much of it.  I was only flirting with the Communists.”

Featherbed with the help of the FBI investigated his claim but concluded that Bryce had played a greater role in the study cells than he owned up to.

The delving also turned up a class parade photo taken at Trinity College, Cambridge, in the early 1930s. [Sitting] in the front row were Bryce, Lester Pearson, Herbert Norman and Kim Philby.

Philby went on to penetrate and sell out British Intelligence as a Soviet KGB master agent and now lives in Moscow.  The picture raised questions but answered none.

RCMP of Operation Mercury put Bryce under surveillance for many months but found nothing incriminating.

The Mercury Mounties wiretapped Simon Reisman for a long time and intercepted phone calls from a Russian embassy military attache identified as “A. Lobatchev.”

The RCMP Watching Service glued on to Reisman but never found him meeting with Lobatchev.  However, Featherbed found that Reisman’s wife had attended a Communist party training school in Port Hope, Ont., in 1954.

When Reisman’s top security clearance came up for renewal, the RCMP put in a report that it shouldn’t be renewed.  But the government’s security screening panel disagreed.

Bernard Ostry was the subject of RCMP surveillance under the code-name “Apache.”  That came after British Intelligence reported in 1962 that Ostry had attended a meeting of the Communist Party of Britain.

The Watching Service reported that Ostry had met Russian Intelligence Service agent Rem Krassilnikov at the Green Gables restaurant in Ottawa.

The RCMP took Bernard Ostry’s file to Trudeau but he dismissed their objections to his promotion to deputy minister of communications, the department that includes intercepting Soviet communications and bugging of embassies.

“I don’t want to hear any more about the Ostrys,” Trudeau said. “I would work with the devil if necessary.  Don’t bother me any more about the Ostrys.”

The RCMP had filed objections to Sylvia Ostry’s promotions on the basis of her Communist associations.  Trudeau dismissed that, too.

The RCMP could never reveal, even to Trudeau, the source for their objections to the Ostrys.

With Trudeau’s disinterest, Featherbed ground to a listless effort in 1972 and died completely by 1975.

A stroke of luck had uncovered secret Communist party memberships of several higher-ups in the trade union movement and in the civil service.

An RCMP “garbage patrol” picked up the membership list of secret section number seven of the United Jewish People’s Order in Montreal.  Section seven was the UJPO’s underground party apparatus for professional people.

The subject of one Featherbed file, Tom Kent, complained to Pearson that it was unfair.  Kent was a policy advisor to the prime minister and assistant deputy minister of immigration.*

Featherbed’s file on Kent outlined his connections with Communist front groups while he was managing editor of the Winnipeg Free Press.

Professor C. B. Macpherson: suspected by the RCMP of being a Communist subversive

Of the many university professors in Featherbed’s files, the most important was deemed to be Prof. C. B. MacPherson of University of Toronto.

The RCMP bugged MacPherson’s island cottage near Gananoque for the regular visits by two Russian Intelligence Service officers from the Ottawa embassy.

Kay MacPherson:: suspected by the RCMP of being a Communist subversive

Kay MacPherson:: suspected by the RCMP of being a Communist subversive

MacPherson’s wife, Kay, was leader of the Voice of Women movement that paraded for rejection of nuclear weapons by Canada.

Twenty years after Igor Gouzenko defected, Featherbed analysts got around to poring through the neglected kit-bags full of papers seized in the spy-ring roundup.

In the yellowing notebooks and memo pads, they found names and phone numbers of calls made in wartime.  Tracing the numbers back to wartime government phone books, they traced calls made to civil servants who by then (1965) had risen high in the bureaucracy.

They also found evidence implicating a wartime RCAF wing commander and an army colonel in the Soviet spy rings.  But by then, the trail had gotten too cold.  Ironically, the colonel was by then dealing with Soviet trade missions for the government.

Another trail too late to pick up was a curious coincidence that went unexplained.

That was the belated discovery that Col. Nicolai Zabotin’s spy ring had used an electronics shop in Rideau St., Ottawa, as a “live letter drop.”

A card was put in the shop window to signal that a letter was waiting to be picked up.  The card’s appearance usually coincided with the visit to the manager’s office at the rear by two middle-rank civil servants.

The pair rose high in the bureaucracy and retired with honors and indexed pensions.

Operation Featherbed folded for lack of government interest.

1 Trudeau himself was feared by the RCMP to be a Communist agent.  (Trudeau undoubtedly was one.  At Moscow in 1952, Trudeau led a Communist delegation organized by the Canadian Communist Party.  The Moscow meeting was an “economic summit” organized by Soviet intelligence.  See my exclusive English translations of a 7-part series on the summit, “I’m Back From Moscow,” penned by Trudeau for the leftist daily, Le Devoir.  Lester Pearson absolutely was a Soviet agent, denounced by defecting Soviet military intelligence, Elizabeth Bentley to the FBI.  However, Worthington soft-pedals the grave accusations of Elizabeth Bentley against Pearson in the McCarran hearings.  (In 2012, Worthington, still kicking and alive, soft-pedaled his own accusations against Communist Trudeau of the 1970s and 80s, thus bleaching Pierre’s reputation when Red offspring Justin was running for the “Liberal” leadership.  Police suspected Bernard and Sylvia Ostry, as well.  Now, grasp this, if you can.  According to Don Newman, in his autobiography, xxxxxx, Trudeau routinely held his federal Cabinet meetings at the private palatial home of none other than suspected Communists, Bernard and Sylvia Ostry, straddling the border between Hull, Quebec and Ontario.  Also at those meetings was private citizen and Canadian RIIA member, Paul Desmarais Senior of Power Corporation.  On the downtown Montreal business premises of Power Corporation in the 1960s, 1967 to be precise in this case, a “Secret Committee” of Reds posing as Liberals in the federal cabinet of Soviet Agent Lester Pearson, came up with a plan to create a “separatist” party.  Communist René Lévesque was instructed by them to organize and lead it.

The party;s name?  The Parti Québécois.  Its 1972 manifesto in French only, written to appease the extreme left members who swelled its ranks in 1968, flowing in from the Communist RIN party that had been disbanded, calls for a Communist independent state of Quebec.  (See Free download page for my exclusive English translation of the 1972 manifesto.)

We thus find a major multinational corporation embracing, hosting and harboring obvious Communist infiltrators of the Liberal Party of Canada, setting up plans for a Communist party and a Communist State of Quebec on Power Corporation premises.  Power Corporation is also a major presence at the Canadian branch of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (the RIIA in London, an international banker front for a secret society whose object still is the infiltration of national governments to subvert national sovereignty on the road to world government).

* I have come up with a good piece of evidence that Tom Kent was/is indeed a Communist subversive. In March 2007, the Caledon Institute published in pdf format a booklet authored by Kent entitled Federalism Renewed.  The section of it entitled “City Limits” declares the Provinces of Canada (Provincial Legislatures) as defunct institutions of the previous Century.  Kent recommends replacing our Provincial Legislatures with a new form of “federalism” which bears a strong resemblance to the Communist expanded administrative municipal regions documented in Moscow in 1975 by Maurice (Morris) Zeitlin writing in Communist Workers’ World.  I can tell from the same article that Kent also knows why Stephen Harper declared Quebec “a nation” in 2006:  precisely to disintegrate Canada to use Quebec to “negotiate” Kent’s “new federalism”.
 

The Plan for Quebec: Communist State?

The Plan for Quebec: Communist State? By Otto Kretzmer, Sunday, 16 April 2006, is originally a French post entitled “Le plan pour le Québec” at the blogspot “Le Complot Contre Le Québec” (The Plot Against Quebec).

English translation by Kathleen Moore for Habeas Corpus Canada, together with brief additions from other articles of Mr. Kretzmer, for a fuller picture.

In translating this article, I take no position on religion, except to attempt to convey the concerns of the article’s original author, Otto Kretzmer; and except to acknowledge absolutely the Constitutional nature for French Canadians of their entrenched right to their historic Catholic religion.
______________________________________________________

Separate Quebec from Canada? No!
Separate All of Canada from High Finance? Yes!

The idea of separatism in Quebec has been part of a communist plan to overthrow Quebec and Canada. With a foothold in Quebec, communism could take all of Canada as well. Independence is a communist-Marxist strategy to take power in a country. We have this example in a number of countries: separations in Vietnam, in Algeria, in Biafra, in Korea, in Bengla-Desh, in Pakistan, etc.

The Canadian Council of Protestant Churches, with its headquarters in Toronto, published a small brochure in 1969 entitled “Quebec’s Impending Fate Communist State?” (Le Québec deviendra-t-il un Etat communiste?) It is quite useful to re-read these extracts in 2005; we will therefore quote a few paragraphs from that brochure.

[Re-translating into English, for lack of a copy of the brochure:]

“The most militant Zone in Canada for communist activity is the Province of Quebec. The first goal adopted at the convention of the Communist Party of Quebec held in Montreal in 1967, was: “The establishment in Quebec, in Canada, and in the entire world, of a socialist society, and finally of a communist society.

Noting that their goals accord with the efforts of other revolutionary communist groups throughout the world, the convention proclaimed:

“This is an institution of the internationalism of the international proletariat, a science that the Communist Party of Quebec adopts proudly and which will guide us in our battle.”

The December 1967 Communist Manifesto of Quebec is an appeal to militants to establish first, a socialist state, by armed revolution if necessary, so as to finally arrive at communist dictatorship.

The Communist Party of Quebec declares in its Manifesto:

“The Communist Party of Quebec is the Marxist-Leninist Worker’s Party.”

This declaration has great significance. It identifies the Communist Party of Quebec with a tentacle of the World Communist Party, guilty of massacres, and the worst criminal atrocities against the peoples it has subjected to slavery. It represents the butchery of a hundred million persons whose only crime was to express their confidence in our democratic way of life, or who questioned the right of a small minority to impose their absolute will on the great majority.

This communist Quebec Manifesto sets out a plan of political and social action. This plan includes a new federal constitution, and a new constitution for Quebec, the right to self-determination for Quebec, and the privilege to separate from Canada if necessary.”

The Plan for Quebec – Communist State

The Plan for Quebec – Communist State

Separating Quebec from the rest of Canada is thus a plan of the Communist Party of Quebec, a plan announced in their Manifesto, a communist plan of conquest for Quebec and for the whole of Canada. Do not think that communism is dead and buried, even if some countries have succeeded in liberating themselves from this infernal slavery. Communism seeks to foment revolutions in countries to weaken the strength of their peoples, and to finally arrive at a world communist government. The Parti Québécois enters into the plans of the Communist Party of Quebec.

False Patriotism

The separatists say they are ardent defenders of the French language, of our culture, of our Quebec identity. However, they dissociate our culture from our Catholic faith transmitted by our ancestors. They are hardly concerned with the safeguard of Catholicism in Quebec. Their goal is to permanently annihilate it. These ardent “independentists” preach patriotism to us in every key, but they themselves work to achieve an atheistic and anticlerical communist plan, whether they know it or not.

In the name of false patriotism, they carry the Quebec people toward separation, which will spawn a bloody revolution, a civil war. Separatism flows from socialist-Marxist ideology. Those who fight the battle for separation in Quebec are not patriots, but veiled communists.

Marxist Constitutions

A great deal is heard about the preparation of a new federal constitution and a new constitution for Quebec*, about the “right to self-determination for Quebec”, a certain “sovereignty”. These changes correspond strangely with the 1967 Manifesto of the Communist Party of Quebec. Will Ottawa itself contribute to separating Quebec from Canada? Is the provocation of a civil war a part of the plot? Is the desire to establish atheistic, Marxist and communist constitutions in Quebec and in Canada to lead us into a tyrannical world government?

Canada and all the Provinces are the slaves of Big Business. This is the real problem. Our governments, from the biggest to the smallest, are weighted down with public debt. When will they break loose these chains of banker dictatorship and stop genuflecting at the feet of the money men to borrow numbers? The thing to be changed in the federal and provincial constitutions is to detach Canada and the Provinces from High Finance, our common enemy. The law which empowers banks and private institutions to create money must be abolished.

It is also important to realize that the concept or the word “communism” is employed as a mask for the New World Order, which was begun by the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 and continues unabated up to the present.

The energies and the idealism of the working people are used by the protectors of such revolutions – the Big Bankers – to demolish what has been created methodically by generations before us. At the price of blood and destruction, the power of the Bankers is expanded and consolidated, whereas, the proletariates increasingly find themselves worse off than they were at the start. They face the prospect of nothing less than slavery.

In my first article, (says Kretzmer) I described without proving it, that it [communism] is the separatist movement, whether in Quebec or in any other part of the world. As for Quebec separatists, I personally knew a member of the FLQ, Charles Gagnon, who had always been a communist. I don’t know what has become of him, because I lost touch with him ages ago.

There have been various separatist movements in Quebec, but I am going to focus above all, at first, on the RIN and its former President, the now deceased Pierre Bourgault. The anglophone reader or anyone who doesn’t know the history of Quebec will indeed be surprised by certain facts and certain declarations. That is expected, it’s normal.

All those organizations that mobilized the “Parti-Pris” and the “Révolution Québécoise” magazines as the front line of their advance, used the nationalism (including the respectable nationalism) of the French Canadians to launch the communist revolution in Quebec.

For these organizations, separatism – one should more properly say: “the tactic of independence” is only a means to their ends, a “Trojan horse” at the service of the aspirations of Moscow (or of Peking!) to a world hegemony. By way of illustration, let’s see what we can read on this subject in the September, 1964 issue of “Révolution Québécoise“:

“Just as every imperialist war must be transformed into a civil war to overthrow the power of the culpable ruling classes, in the same way EVERY nationalist movement must be transformed into a socialist movement to liberate the working classes” (page 35)

We know that excellent Christians have been deceived by the RIN-PQ-BQ* and their false gloss of patriotism. However, other than Mister Bourgault who repeated to all who would listen that an “independent” Quebec would be socialist, the apologia that one reads in the Marxist magazine “Révolution Québécoise,” as made by the RIN’s official publication, L’Indépendance (November 1964, p. 7), must provide sufficient reason to all true patriots and Christians of Quebec to oppose the PQ-BQ-RIN by total refusal, in both words and acts. Here is an excerpt from the official mouthpiece of the RIN, L’Indépendance (November 1964):

A new magazine just came out: “Révolution Québécoise,” run by Pierre Vallières (a former Felquist {FLQ terrorist), who left the team of “Cité Libre” – Pierre Elliot Trudeau was part of the team at Cité Libre – to participate in the building of a free city up to the measure of our era: the one that a (liberated!) Quebec will form tomorrow in which all property will be absolutely redistributed (!!). This magazine (Révolution Québécoise) is an addition to the several avant-garde magazines born in Québec the past few years, and must take its place on the bookshelf of every independentist whose heartfelt desire is to be informed on the economic and cultural problems of Québec.”

The official magazine of the RIN-PQ-BQ* thus suggests that every independentist read a review which is self-identified as communist-Leninist. It therefore seems futile to insist on pointing out, when it’s so easy to recognize, the ideology which has inspired the RIN-PQ-BQ each in its turn. However, it is necessary to return to the subject in order to examine, more closely this time, the RIN, the “Rassemblement Pour l’Indépendance Nationale” (the Rally for National Independence).

Pierre Bourgault, the former President of the RIN, toured Quebec. He was received officially in some towns, in some Catholic seminairies, and he even held public meetings in a well known Dominican monastery in Montreal. Here, then, is the gist of it.

The RIN and the Revolution

In its October 10th, 1964 edition, the Montreal daily newspaper “Le Devoir” published a long article on page 4 under “Reader’s Opinion” entitled: “The Independence of Quebec” (“L’indépendance du Québec”). This article permits us to trace the goals pursued by the RIN-PQ-BQ. To be clear, and to keep it short, we have taken the liberty of extracting only the most significant passages from this article. Here they are:

“Independentist parties and movements, which are proliferating in Québec, endorse opposing theories, according to which they describe themselves as left or right. Some of them claim to be the champions of independence; but in studying their writings we perceive that their real ultimate goal is revolution via the scientific socialism of Karl Marx. To drive us to this goal, they use as “research themes and as battle cries: socialism, secularism and independence”. I refer in particular to the magazines Parti-Pris and L’Indépendance, the latter being the official organ of the RIN.

In support of this grave accusation, here are a few typical excerpts, which are merely a fraction of those we could cite. A special edition of Parti-Pris was published on September 1st, 1964. The “manifesto” begins with a report of Marx on the Revolution; then, at page 12, we read:

“Independence, which was a goal, becomes a preliminary, a necessary step in the revolutionary conflict which exceeds it and amplifies it”.

We will see that the realness, the authenticity of the independentist idea resides in the political thought and practise of the Left.” (page 23)

IT WAS AT THE RIN THAT THE WORD “REVOLUTION” WAS FIRST DECLARED ITSELF”. (page 25)

“Trained in the school of Sartre, which is that of Marxism-Leninism, we are agreed upon the necessity to use, as research and battle themes, socialism, secularism and independence.” (p. 36).

“The recognition of the RIGHT to believe that religion is an evil” both follows and precedes the tirades of the priests.” (p. 30).

L’Indépendance – the magazine of the RIN, and Parti-Pris (2) get along very well, even if, for public consumption, they keep a certain distance between them. For example, in Parti-Pris the current President of the RIN, Mister Pierre Bourgault, published his political and electoral program on December 3rd, 1963. But, it is in the July 1964 issue of L’Indépendance at page 2, 2nd column, that we read:

“It is time to recall that independence is a means that must bring us to social and working-class revolution. The revolutionary party that achieves independence will, for example, abolish the two-party system…” (p. 6).

Then we will publicly recommend, and above all accomplish, the separation – the great work – of the spiritual from the temporal, of the Church from the State” (p. 2).”

This extract may seem long to some readers, but it was necessary. It reveals the communist parentage of the separatist movement in Québec and the place occupied within it by the RIN-PQ-BQ.

Tactics of the RIN

In December of 1964, Mr. Bourgault returned from a “thrilling tour” of Québec. That’s even the title of the article he wrote in RIN’s magazine that same month. In that article, he declared, most notably:

“Past violence is detrimental to our present action, and it is not in the name of principles that we denounce it, but in the name of efficiency.”

How do we interpret this? An about-face? A conversion?

No: because “past violence” is not denounced “in the name of principles”, which is to say in the name of the immutable commandments that come from God, or by reference to genuine ethics, but solely “in the name of efficiency.” Yesterday, violence might have been useful, today, No!! Because we [I mean, the RIN] ]have perceived that the Quebec people still have a solid ethical sense in this era, and that, accordingly, recourse to the mere idea of “violence” is unpopular. And on account of this, it undermines the work of the RIN. But tomorrow? Tomorrow, maybe, violence could be used. All depends on the greatest efficacy.

And then the bombs flew just about everywhere and we had the tragic murder of Pierre Laporte.

To show how well anchored was the thought of Mister Bourgault in the realm of the communist dialectic, it would be useful to quote two extracts from an article on “The True Nature of Communism” by Jean Daujat:

Jean Daujat

Jean Daujat

“Most of our contemporaries,” writes Mr. Daujat, “have no idea how to react to communism because they don’t know it, which leads them into it, or allows them to be used by it. They are especially totally led astray by the perpetual contradictions of the communists, who often say and do the opposite today of what they said and and did the day before, which induces one and another to marvel at how they have changed their ways. This non-comprehension of Marxism has grave consequences …

” … Because, for such a philosophy (Marxist), the only consideration that counts is material power, efficacity; the only rule is to say or to do whatever the moment requires, more efficacious and more powerful. There is no place for truth, for good, or for justice to intervene.

Whatever a true communist says or writes is never the teaching of a truth, which is something that makes no sense to him, but propaganda to carry off an action: it will consist not in saying what is true, but whatever more efficiently serves the action to be exercised.

It is therefore absurd to say, as some do, that one can collaborate in an action practised by communists without adopting Marxist doctrine. Because communism is not at all the teaching of a doctrine, but the action exerted by the communist himself.” (Jean Daujat: The True Nature of Communism)

“Past violence is detrimental to our present action,” writes Mr. Bourgault, “and it is not in the name of principles that we denounce it, but in the name of efficiency.” This simple phrase can tell us a great deal about the philosophy of the separatist movement. Did not Lenin write: Marxism must take account of living reality, precise facts, and not cling to a theory of yesterday. Our doctrine is not a dogma, but a rule of action (Lenin, Works XXIV).

Who Was Pierre Bourgault?

In May of 1964, Mister Pierre Bourgault publicly confessed his agnosticism in MacLean’s Magazine (p. 44). He renewed this public confession on television networks; he reaffirmed it at Alma in Lake Saint-Jean to the regional press; and finally at Valleyfield over the airwaves of the local radio station.

During this interview granted to the Valleyfield press on November 17th, 1964, a journalist read to Mister Bourgault what the Vatican Council had ruled in respect to agnosticism:

“If someone says that the only true God, our Lord and Creator, is unknowable in the light of reason through the things he has made, that he be excommunicated.”

To which Mister Bourgault replied:

“I could be wicked and answer you like Jean-Paul Sartre: Je ne communias déjà plus!” [Literal translation: I will no longer take communion]

Let us not forget that one day or another, every man, every ideology, every social institution or human society must speak for or against the Church. The separatist movement chose its side and it has never sidetracked. Let’s re-read attentively the extract reported in L’Iindépendance (July 1964). The official mouthpiece of the RIN writes:

“Then we will publicly recommend, and above all accomplish, the separation – the great work – of the spiritual from the temporal, of the Church from the State” (p. 2) What are we to think?

The Christian citizen naturally knows that it is not society, but man, which has an immortal soul. It follows from that fact that society (along with its government) is made for man, and, that man is made for God. In this light, the suggestion of the separatist movement which says “publicly recommend, and above all accomplish, the separation – the great work – of the spiritual from the temporal, of the Church from the State” cannot but recall the famous statement of Lenin: “God is the personal enemy of communist society.”

To impose “the separation – the great work – of the spiritual from the temporal, of the Church from the State” upon a human society is at basis to compel a man practically to separate his body from his soul, because one is temporal and the other is spiritual! And it is not because they want to establish a simple distinction between the spiritual and the temporal, but they demand a great separation, a break, and “above all,” “to accomplish this” does not go without violence nor terrorism. Lenin made no effort to hide it when he said:

“Millions of excrements, defilements, violences, sicknesses, pestilences, are much less to be feared than the most subtle, the most refined, and the most invisible idea of God! God is the most personal enemy of Communist Society.”

The vehement opposition of Holy Pope Pius Xth to this doctrine is well explained thus:

“[translation of Kretzmer’s French:] that it is necessary to separate the Church from the State”, he wrote, “is an absolutely false thesis, a very pernicious error. Based, in effect, on this principle, that the State must recognize no religious practice, it is first of all gravely injurious for God; because the Creator of man is also the Founder of human societies, and he maintains them in existence just as he does us. We owe him not only our private worship, but public and social honor.”

One thing must be clarified: secularism – or secular humanism – is a recognized religion according to a judgment of the Supreme Court of the United States. When the Liberals and the free-thinkers gild the pill for us, in speaking to us of pseudo-neutrality, they knowingly lie. Neutrality exists nowhere in the universe. These are the refrains of the Quebec Secular Movement which have given the order to the Governments of Quebec and of Canada to remove ancestral rights, rights conferred by the Constitution, concerning the teaching of Catholicism and Protestantism in Quebec schools.

The Quebec Secular Movement is also behind homosexual marriage or civil union. The Quebec Secular Movement is the true gouvernement du Québec, not the useless Quebec Legislature, stuffed with hypocrites who love to shake hands, appear in public and fly around in limousines.

The RIN, to give to its position the semblance of orthodoxy, readily spreads the idea among its members that it is necessary to liberate religion from politics; in fact, it proposed exactly the opposite: to “liberate” politics from religion! And that’s called secularism. But, secularism is a religion called Freemasonry.

“In the lives of states themselves,” writes Pope Pius XII in this regard, “the strength and the weakness of men, sin and grace, play a capital role. The politics of the 20th Century can’t ignore it, nor admit that one persists in the error of wanting to separate the state from religion in the name of a secularism that the facts have not been able to justify” (Christmas, 1956).

No! “The Catholic Church will never allow itself to be enclosed within the four walls of the temple! The separation of religion from life, and of the Church from the world, is contrary to Christian and Catholic doctrine!” (Pius XII).

It is therefore easy to see that the revolutionary doctrine of the separatist movement is “contrary to Christian and Catholic doctrine”; which is, because of this fact, “an absolutely false thesis, very gravely injurious for God, Creator of Man and founder of human societies”. And, it is rigorously logical to conclude that every devoted Catholic must make it his business to put his hatred for error and his love for truth into open battle in full light of day, against such an ideology!

I will conclude by reporting the public declaration (just one among many) of Mr. Bourgault, published in La Presse, of which he was then an Editor, on February 3rd, 1964 (page 17). It’s a report of a meeting held the previous evening of February 2nd at the Champagnat school.

“These cryptic zones proliferate, cryptics of centralization, of bilingualism, but also cryptics of betrayal, of intermediate bodies, of bishops and of embezzlers of public funds.”

Mister Bourgault thus quite simply lumps together the bishops and the embezzlers of public funds, which has nonetheless not prevented him from being received by certain of our Catholic colleges. The former president of the RIN was a man who disliked – as he readily admitted – mixing religion with politics, nor with his own life, yet he never shied away from vilifying the Church in its own public assemblies!

What is the real goal of the separatist movement?

Pierre Bourgault (RIN)

Pierre Bourgault (RIN)

We have seen clearly, despite the distance these two movements prudently kept between them, (to assure the efficacy of their action upon the public) that the RIN closely pursued the same goals as the Marxist team of the Parti Pris.

“Seeking means capable of achieving the Revolution, Marx found misery”, wrote Rosenberg. Without a doubt, had he lived in Quebec in 1965, Marx would have found “independentism”. And the question returns: What is the real goal of the separatist movement?

The answer: “It is time to recall” as written in the July 1964 issue of L’Indépendance, “that independence is a means that must bring us to social and working-class revolution”.

And there it is. The real, the only, goal of the separatist movement! And it is not by chance that this is the goal of the World Communist Party: Stalin declared to the 7th world congress of the Comintern:

“All the detours, all the zigzags of our policy have but one goal and one goal only: world Revolution!”

Once again, it is clear that a true Catholic must not join the ranks of the separatist movement, if he really wishes to remain Catholic.

[Summarizing]: A Few Statements from the President of the RIN

With respect to the Quebec people:

“Give me 5% of the Quebec population, and I’ll take it where I want because the other 95% are sleeping.”

– Pierre Bourgault at Alma, in the church basement of St-Sacrement on November 2nd, 1964

“Despite history, despite English, despite the noteworthies, and a little bit also despite ourselves, alas!, the Quebecois people have stayed French. I had violently returned. This people had no need of directives to affirm its French pride in the face of the whole world”.

– Pierre Bourgault

Concerning terrorism:

“But, if Michelle Duclos preferred the cause of the blacks, I understand her. As for me, if I were a black, I would have long ago made them all jump”

– Pierre Bourgault, February 21st, 1965, Paul Sauvé Arena

Concerning social ethics:

“Past violence is detrimental to our present action, and it is not in the name of principles that we denounce it, but in the name of efficiency.”

– Pierre Bourgault in L’Indépendance December 1964

Concerning religion:

“I could be wicked and answer you like Jean-Paul Sartre: Je ne communias déjà plus!

– Pierre Bourgault in an interview taped on November 17th, 1964 at Valleyfield at the local radio station

Concerning his adversaries:

“These cryptic zones proliferate, cryptics of centralization, of bilingualism, but also cryptics of betrayal, of intermediate bodies, of bishops and of embezzlers of public funds.”

– Pierre Bourgault, 2 February 1964, Ecole Champagnat

“Because the truly socialist parties have never been able to seize power in any country whatsoever except in the course of a civil war”

– said “Parti-Pris“, coming to the point.

Let me say it again, clearly. “Parti-Pris” was a communist magazine. Moreover, they did not hide this and they wrote openly of it in their September 1964 edition:

“Marxism, to which we ascribe, is not a catechism, but above all, a method of analysis and of work required for us put it into operation in Québec.”

Which is why Mister Bourgault, past president of the RIN, published his “political and electoral programme” in a magazine which openly advertised itself as Marxist-Leninist.

This ideal of a break between the spiritual and the temporal is the core of the Revolution (with a capital “R”). It is very instructive to read what Stalin had to say in this regard:

In realizing such a separation (of Church and State) and in proclaiming freedom of religion, we have at the same time reserved to every citizen (read: to the Communist Party) the “right” to fight for this conviction through propaganda and through unrest… against all religion” (Voprosy, Leninism, Leningrad 1932, pp- 285-286).*

We are seeing it ever more clearly, the secessionist movement and the Communist Party are converging toward one and the same goal: the Revolution.

TRANSLATOR’S FOOTNOTES:

* Dr. John Laughland considers that the European Union essentially embodies Marxist ideology (“The European Union: a Marxist Utopia?“. Quebec “separatist” parties have, for decades, attempted not to “secede” by referendum, but to extract a mandate to negotiate the imposition on Quebec and on all of Canada of the EU system. The EU system therefore appears to be the veiled communist system, emerging progressively. The use of Quebec to force the system onto all of Canada would then result in a new Marxist “federal constitution, and a new Marxist constitution for Quebec”. See my blog post of 14 October 2009: “Sarkozy Scamming Quebec’s Hoodwinked Separatists“. KM/HCC.

* “PQ” is the acronym for Parti Québécois, a Quebec provincial “party” founded formally in 1968 by communist, René Lévesque (it was actually planned by others), and typically labeled “separatist” by press and media. However, “separatist” is a misnomer. The platform of the Parti Québécois has always been to impose the European system on all of Canada in place of Confederation. “Separatism” is merely a threat of UDI (unilateral declaration of independence) to destroy Canada, as blackmail to force the rest of Canada to accept the European system. Therefore, Mr. Kretzmer’s understanding of the Quebec Communist Party Manifesto appears to be on the right track: the attempt by Lévesque in 1980, and then by Jacques Parizeau in 1995 is to impose a new, ultimately “Marxist” Constitution on Quebec, and on all of Canada: the European Union system. A 1991 interview with Parizeau and then-Premier of Quebec Robert Bourassa shows that both are already quite conversant with the notion of a common North American Parliament. Bourassa, a “Liberal,” a label Canadians have been trained to identify as “fighting against separatists”, actually passed a law in 1991, Bill 150, compelling a referendum for Quebec to secede by a fixed date in 1992. That law, however, was blackmail to attempt to force all Canadians to accept so-called “amendments” to the federal Constitution presented as the Charlottetown Accord to “keep Quebec in Canada”. But, in reality, the proposed amendments were a ruse to appear to harmonize Canada with “international law” that emerged from the Badinter Commission during the overthrow and breakup of Yugoslavia. Had Charlottetown passed, Quebec would have “seceded” and used UDI to force the EU system on Canada. I wrote about this in my 2008 Federal Elections newsletter: “NO ONE TO VOTE FOR Federal Elections – Canada

When former Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev visited Britain in 2000, he described the European Union as “the new European Soviet.” Others, including former Russian dissident Vladimir Bukovsky, American Charlotte Iserbyt and Lithuanian-American Vilius Brazenas, equate the EU system with the basis of a nascent world Soviet system. Still others identify the EU as being essentially Marxist in ideology (“The European Union: a Marxist Utopia?” by Dr. John Laughland, Online publication date: 2011-04-20).

* “BQ” is the acronym for Bloc Québécois, a so-called ‘federal’ ‘separatist’ party founded in approximately 1990 when a handful of mostly former Liberals and former Conservatives who had crossed the floor two to five months earlier to sit as independents, crossed the floor again inside Parliament to sit — we are told — as ‘separatists’. However, the agitations of this party since its founding have been designed to help get Quebec out of Confederation by intimidating Canadians into accepting the European system in lieu of threatened “break-up”. Again, it is a misnomer and thus misleading to call these parties “separatist”. They are not “separatist”. They are communist parties hiding behind separatist ideology.

Like the Parti Québécois, the Bloc Québécois wants a European-style union. Their recent past leader, Gilles Duceppe, admitted on camera on 30 April 2011 that he wants “a good constitution, like they have in Europe”. He wants a North American Union including a “sovereign” Quebec. In other words, the communists have targeted all of North America, and apparently they have counterparts in the U.S.A. who are ready and willing to give it to them, though this would necessitate the overthrow of the U.S. Constitution, Congress and the White House.

In this respect, it is worth noticing that there is a “secession” movement in the USA at precisely the same time that Duceppe is making this declaration. It is called the “Tenth Amendment Movement” by which 38+ States have filed formal declarations intending to ‘secede’ from their federal government and destroy the USA because of federal encroachment on States’ constitutional rights. I wrote about this in my blog post of 27 June 2011, “Taking America Down for Globalism in the Name of Patriotism

* “The official magazine of the RIN-PQ-BQ” — I now don’t know what Mr. Kretzmer means. “BQ” appears to refer to the Bloc Québécois which arrived on the scene as of 1990. The Bloc could therefore not have been involved in the 1960s with the RIN and the PQ. Was it a typographical error to have included the BQ in the Kretzmer article? Or does BQ stand for still something else that I’m not yet aware of?

Gilles Duceppe, recent former leader for over 20 years of the “separatist” Bloc Québécois (an illegal party in the federal Parliament) was a colleague of FLQ terrorist leader Charles Gagnon. Duceppe wrote for Gagnon’s communist magazine En Lutte ! (Struggle!). See my translation “Has the Far Left Hijacked the Quebec Sovereignty Movement?” under my general title: “Communist Links of the NDP and the Bloc Québécois”.

As Mr. Kretzmer notes above, Pierre Elliott Trudeau was part of the team at the magazine, Cité Libre. In fact, he was a co-founder of it with fellow Communist Gérard Pelletier. More importantly, Trudeau and other important federal figures in the “Quebec secession” scheme, including Gérard Pelletier, Jean Marchand, and René Lévesque, were also a part of the in-crowd at Cité Libre and, thereby, all were colleagues of BOTH of two major FLQ terrorist leaders, Pierre Vallières, who acted as Director of Cité Libre in the early 1960s around the time Vallières met Gagnon, who also worked at Cité Libre for Trudeau and Pelletier, and the FLQ bombings began in Quebec.

René Lévesque set up rather than founded the Parti Québécois, a fake “separatist” party designed to impose the EU system on Canada disguised as Quebec “sovereignty”, upon advice to do so from Trudeau, Pelletier, Marchand, and other federal ministers in the Lester Pearson Cabinet on a “secret committee” hosted in Montreal in the 1960s by Power Corporation of Canada. Power Corporation has a penchant for hiring communists, and I shall write a post on that another day.

René Lévesque, Fidel Castro, lawyer Raymond Daoust (1959) Montreal

René Lévesque, Fidel Castro, lawyer Raymond Daoust (1959) Montreal

The FLQ had been set up by Fidel Castro, who met Belgian immigrant to Montreal, Georges Schoeters during Castro’s visit to Canada on 26 April 1959. Castro later brought Schoeters to Cuba where he trained him to organize the FLQ. Castro also trained some of the terrorists handpicked by Schoeters. In the photo at left, we see René Lévesque, the year before he entered politics with the Liberals, interviewing Castro on the very same day that Castro linked up with Schoeters. FLQ terror would be the springboard and the pretext for a “political” settlement of the “complaints” of the FLQ about conditions in Quebec.

Had it been Lévesque who originated the idea of the “separatist” party which would fight it out with the rest of Canada in negotiations after a referendum, that would be sufficiently odd, given Lévesque’s link to the man who set up the FLQ in the first place: Castro. However, it was a group of mostly Liberals, federal ministers from Quebec in the government of Lester Pearson, who decreed that a “separatist” party should be erected. Those men included, notably, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Gérard Pelletier and Jean Marchand, all three recruited by Pearson to “fight separatism”. But, strangely, the “separatist” party they decided should be set up to “fight separatism” in a referendum, actually had as its platform the “negotiation” of the European Economic Community (EU) system to replace Confederation. This is the very system viewed today as increasingly Soviet, and as Marxist in nature. Who would decree that a “separatist” party be set up so that “separatism” could be “fought” in a referendum? A secret committee of Power Corporation of Canada would, and did, in 1967, led by Claude Frenette, then-President of the Liberal Party, with close ties to Trudeau, and a Power Corp. executive and right-had man to Paul Desmarais, Sr. Power Corporation in 2010 is headquarters of the Rhodes Scholarships for Quebec (a free education in the pushing of world government). And more importantly, Power Corporation is a founding member of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives which authored the Building A North American Community report of 2005 outlining the creation of a North American Community on the pretext of the September 11th, 2001 “terrorist attacks”, and published by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the U.S. branch of the network involved in the Cecil Rhodes society, and whose “sister institute” in Canada is the Canadian International Council (CIC), on whose Board and Senate we find Power Corporation.

Again, despite the steadfast complicity of press and media pretending that Quebec, led by “separatists,” was attempting to “secede,” the real subject of the referendum was not secession, but the imposition on all of Canada of the EU system. René Lévesque ultimately “founded” that “separatist” party, the Parti Québécois, which has been used ever since to attempt to force the European Union system onto Canada in place of Confederation.

Castro’s trip to Montreal on 26 April 1959 (when he connected with Schoeters) was organized by Raymond Daoust, a criminal lawyer, according to the caption under the same photo (above) in a biography entitled René Lévesque – Un enfant du siècle 1922-1960, by Pierre Godin. It is unclear whether Daoust was working for the mafia at that time; however, Daoust is ultimately identified as a lawyer for the Vic Cotroni mafia family and also in circumstances suggesting that he, himself, was a part of the mob. 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 (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 man 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. And in the process of “fighting” them, he, Trudeau, the defender of Canada, will facilitate their attempted imposition of what is apparently the economic basis of a world-wide communist system: for the 1980 referendum proposes to replace Confederation with the European Economic Community system, which today we see as the European Union with special status at the U.N.
