Ontario School Children Killed in Canoes Annually

"Grieving families who have lost their children often try to prevent such terrible pain from happening to anyone else. The truth here enables them to save dozens of lives in Canada annually."






Dear Macleans:

Re: Macleans June 13: Ottawa shouldn't go overboard on lifejackets

Your article stating that drowning deaths are decreasing and that lifejackets required for canoes might interfere with "freedom" is misguided. Note that 6 Ontario school children died in agony in canoes last year, both wearing a PFD and not, among the total of 14 dead in canoes in Ontario for 2010. Canoes have no reliable means of self-rescue thanks to the profitable instruction fraud organized by Paddle Canada and the Ontario Recreational Canoeing and Kayaking Association. This fraud is officially endorsed by the OPP and RCMP despite a majority of officers condemning the safety fraud.

Readers of Macleans who have been injured by the cruel deaths of loved ones, friends, neighbours and classmates are referred to the Class Action Lawsuit page: http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html

This lawsuit is the only way for grieving families and outraged citizens to stop this egregious fraud. See the pictures of 2 ten year old children able to rescue themselves in 5 seconds with 50 cent sponsons, plus rescue any other dying victims in the water, and paddle them to the shore. Lifesaving means a foolproof rescue, reliable enough to guarantee that victims can get out of the water and live. This Summer in Ontario the poor weather has prevented the same canoe use hours as last year, and so far no school children in Ontario have died in canoes in 2011.

Please ensure that your readers are allowed to read the full truth of canoe safety, so they do not spend hundreds of dollars on fraudulent rescue instruction that is ridiculous to describe: paddling flooded canoes to shore, throwing canoes into the air or "shaking" them free of water in emergencies. Only emergency stability can prevent canoes from capsizing or re-capsizing in emergencies. I shall include postscript a letter that I sent to the Ottawa Citizen last week.

Yours truly,

Dear Mr. Ingram,
Thank you for your letter.

It will be considered for publication, but final decisions are not made
until the final moments of the magazine's production, and no letter's
inclusion can be guaranteed. If you do not want it considered for
publication, let us know immediately.

Meanwhile, it has been forwarded to the author of the article, who will
appreciate the feedback.

All the best,
Maclean's
 
 

This is a lifesaving webpage designed to prevent canoe and kayak deaths, the most easily preventable category of death in Canada (and the U.S. as well). The victims, a large percentage being school children, are already dead. Most people do not even use canoes and kayaks, contrary to profit driven mis-information. In fact, if used at all, canoes and kayaks are used only a few hours annually. The death rate is far beyond what could be reasonably expected from such a small industry, a death rate far above the most dangerous vehicles on the road, in use hours. The US Coast Guard report 071-01 reveals: "Canoes and kayaks have by far the highest fatality rates per million hours of exposure (.42) as any other boat type". In use hours, canoes and kayaks have a far higher death rate than the deadliest vehicles: Ford/Firestone had 200 deaths 1993-2000, but these vehicles were far more numerous and were driven far more hours daily. Canoes and kayaks are far fewer, and are not paddled daily! They are much more deadly than any car when used.

Canada, where ice and cold restricts use to a few summer months, has a far higher death rate than the U.S., where in Florida for example, paddling occurs year round. In Canada's largest province Ontario, 15 victims died between April and September 2010, including 6 school children, all in canoes. This remarkably high number of children is due to a longstanding Ponzi scheme sheltered by the Ontario Provincial Police to protect criminal wrong-doing (criminal negligence causing death) by several OPP officers and 2 Attorneys General, Bentley and Bryant, a criminal safety fraud killing over 200 Canadians since 2002.
 
 

Any two Ten Year Old Girls are able to rescue themselves without any instruction or practice (they just clip sponsons onto gunwales in an emergency, within 5 seconds, with 50 cent foam sponsons), then paddle a flooded canoe to shore at 2 knots, even standing up, but normally seated on seats. Both sponsons are normally clipped at both gunwales, like the left sponson, permitting self-bailing of most of the water by leaning to one side. In order to permit total flooding for this picture, it was necessary to clip one sponson 6 inces higher than the other, so water could flow over one gunwale. These girls (or any normal ten year old children) can rescue any other victims in the water, even obese or disabled adults, who only need to crawl over a gunwale, and be paddled to shore at about 2 knots. The canoe weighs at least 2,000 lbs., flooded. Simple: Any suitable buoyancy, like 50 cent foam floats that are clipped onto gunwales in 5 seconds by any two 10 year old girls, who easily rescue themselves and anyone else. Very simple, cheap, 50 cents and a foolproof means of saving themselves, like the universal life rings around any waterfront.
 
 


The Class Action Lawsuit






These rather typical questions about getting sponsons for personal use, show how grieving victims, given the real information denied to them by official sources, can use the courts to stop the deaths of more child and adult victims, in Ontario or anywhere else in Canada, the US or the UK.
 
 

Tim:  could you email me plans for homemade sponsons?  I can't find them on your site.

Thanks.

Hi Bill:

Please read: http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html    Many
people want sponsons. Most people are intelligent enough to understand
that canoe and kayak rescues don't work, not just the late Bill Mason
and all of the other major authors. And everyone can understand that
these fraudulent rescues make money for the instruction organizations
while killing dozens of schoolchildren in the US and Canada.

Unfortunately even Ontario school boards in Toronto, as you can read
here have happily killed schoolchildren every year. This same deadly
fraud could kill you Bill; since you may not be any more astute than a
Canadian school board: "Bullshit Baffles Brains", as the old saying
goes. Over 95% of police officers polled know canoe and kayak rescues
can't work, nor can they put a PFD on in the water, part of the fraud
at school boards and throughout Canada. The PFD fraud in the US did
not fly when introduced in the late 1990's. Most State reps were
against it, introducing PFD wearage laws instead, especially for
children.

Of course all this may be plain and obvious to you Bill, but even
smart police officers and school teachers have been briefly confused
about pigs that fly. It is very easy to trick people, even regarding
an obvious idea about 50 cent sponsons that 10 year old school
children can clip on in 5 seconds to rescue themselves plus any other,
even obese victims in the water, then paddle them to shore at 2 knots,
while sitting on seats, not standing up in canoes to show off paddling
at 2 knots. Not only water but ice rescues are much safer: But the
firemen want really inferior thousand dollar items conceived like
buoyant stretchers and unable to safely convey firemen over ice and
water. The Canadian Coast Guard Search and Rescue in NFLD called me
nearly a decade ago to use sponsons where cormorant helicopters can't
go, rocky surf and cliff rescues, using sponsons and $600 plastic
recreational kayaks, clipping victims to front and rear decks and
paddling them out to the Zodiac. But in NFLD almost all families have
lost loved ones to the sea: drowning is very painful, not the peaceful
death that the organized fraud speaks about whenever they do
acknowledge the very high canoe and kayak risk of death; so how boats
or sponsons work in sea rescues are not baffled by bullshit in many
NFLD school boards (except a few near St. Johns.) See my letters from
Premier Williams elsewhere.

The only place you are going to be certain of knowing about sponsons
is in a Courtroom where the fraudulent rescues taught to school
children will be closely scrutinized by the media and ordinary
citizens; while cops running million dollar taxpayer funded water
safety programs admit under oath that the fraudulent rescues can't
possibly work, and even cause significant death risk to expert
instructors, who "must regularly practise to stay sharp", in contrast
to 10 year old school children who rescue themselves and others in 5
seconds.

So if you want the lifesaving and unadulterated information Bill, (it
really is very simple when it is not accompanied by the lies of the
instruction fraud), you can only be assured of receiving it from a
courtroom, where the fraud is plainly explicated by the lies of the
perpetrators who are asked simple questions under oath.

Perhaps you know a grieving family near you, or a relative or friend
once removed from the immediate grieving party. I can avail them of a
willing and accomplished legal group (ever hear of _______ in Canada
or _______ ______?), as well as a number of Canadian Premiers and even the
former head of the US Coast Guard Boating Safety office who tried for
sponsons to evade a congressional lobby group as tenacious as Wall
Street, (but a lot smaller with profits barely in the millions), and got at least partway.
Sponsons are as simple andcommonsense as organized government
corruption is pervasive, in the US and Canada.
Only a citizen's courtroom has a certain role at plainly
outlining the fraud and the extent of the endangered and murdered
victims: Canoe and Kayak deaths far, far exceed vehicle deaths in use hours.

Thanks Bill, perhaps you can help make your neighbours' children a lot safer,
Tim
 



 

Dear Editor of Sea Kayaker Magazine:

Re: Michipicoten Island Rescue, SK October 2011

Your Magazine describes above yet another highly dangerous "rescue" costing taxpayers thousands of dollars, this time involving a large double kayak that the victims thought they could use to "rescue" themselves by using a paddlefloat and somehow pump themselves out. Your deadly mis-information left them with a flooded double kayak that could not rescue anyone; although Ed Gillett crossed the Pacific Ocean using sponsons for extra stability when his life demanded it, just like Hannes Lindemann crossing the Atlantic in a double canoe with cork sponsons in 1956. Your Magazine has sometimes printed truthful information regarding paddlefloats and sprayskirts and pumps that have left so many victims to die in the water with no hope of the flooded kayak rescuing them, (approximately 2,000 dead Americans in canoes and kayaks according to the US Coast Guard, since 1993 when you first truthfully published sponson information).

Sometimes your Magazine implies that they should have simply been able to perform an "Eskimo Roll"; although the Arctic peoples often failed to roll successfully and died in large numbers relative to their population. "However Reimer was an experienced sea kayaker...His Eskimo roll was not strong, so there was only his paddlefloat."  "Hanging onto his upside-down boat, he lifted his paddle over his head. In spite of the rough seas, he waved it back and forth..." (Sea Kayaker, June, '01, p.54) Many Arctic peoples did not roll at all, and some even employed some kind of sponson concept.  Note: "A capsized paddler who Eskimo rolls is still in the same conditions that capsized him  or her in the first place, and with each roll he or she will take on more water, lessening the kayak's stability." Matt Broze, Deep Trouble, p.91  Today, the idea of transforming the flooded canoe or kayak into a life raft to paddle to safety, is clear and obvious, except for your published misinformation. Transform a canoe or kayak in emergencies simply, quickly and inexpensively into a liferaft, to paddle even fully flooded, the water acting as ballast for further stability; that is neutral buoyancy ballast, as in the concept by Archimedes. The most common life threatening emergencies in canoes and kayaks did not escape the normal intelligence of human beings, even thousands of years ago. Your Magazine and others like it, selling fraudulent instruction and advertising, create deadly misinformation for profit. I understand that Sea Kayaker Magazine is in a competitive market and you would simply lose advertisers and go bankrupt if you did not publish the same deadly misinformation as Canoe and Kayak Magazine, for example. Canoes and kayaks kill far more innocent citizens in the U.S. and Canada per use hour than any road vehicles. But thankfully strong and honest consumer advocacy exists for vehicle safety. You and other members of your cult deliberately profit from lying to the American public, stealing their money for fraudulent instruction and endangering their lives. This action has killed hundreds of American children in kayaks and canoes. This is easily proven in a court of law: it is plain and obvious.

I have created a simple fact page for lawyers in the U.S. and Canada who plan to sue participants in this canoe and kayak safety fraud that has killed thousands of victims since your article: "Once you have the Sea Wings fitted and adjusted, its advantages over the paddlefloat become clear. To use a paddlefloat, a certain amount of instruction and practice is needed. But with Sea Wings, I simply told my volunteer how to snap the four buckles, inflate the sponsons, and climb back aboard." (Sea Kayaker Magazine, Winter, 1993) Please read   http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html  You have tried to warn about paddle floats: "...It has two fairly serious shortcomings: You can't seal the sprayskirt, and you can't keep both hands on the paddle while pumping." (Sea Kayaker Magazine, February 2003, p.29)  "Sea Wings are simply the best and easiest-to-use self-rescue device on the market today." Sea Kayaker Magazine, Winter 1993, p.34  Today the victims in your Magazine article above could have purchased CO2 sponsons, simply pull a cord to inflate in emergencies, components of air bladder and CO2 inflator being the same as an inflatable PFD: very simple, lightweight, and less expensive than a wet suit or a drysuit. CO2 sponsons cannot be sold, nor any type of a dozen types of sponsons can be sold due to your malicious treatment of sponsons within your magazine and the cult at large: "There is even an interesting look at the development and vitriolic promotion of sponsons as safety devices for kayaks and canoes." p.53, Sea Kayaker Magazine, February 2009.

It is not all your fault. Sometime you have printed the deadly truths about paddle floats; but you did not mention sponsons as a reasonable lifesaving alternative. Read Matt Broze in both Sea Kayaker Magazine and Paddlewise: "The most effective way of using a handheld bilge pump in rough seas is to lift the bottom of your PFD up and shove the pump down between the spray skirt and your belly. This way is slow and awkward, but you can pump with the spray skirt completely sealed. Practice it." (p.27, Sea Kayaker Magazine, June 2006.) Matt Broze, "Pumping Out after Paddle Float Rescue", Paddlewise, Wed, 20 Jun 2001 02:36:43 -0700: "...obviously there are going to be certain combinations of clothing and spraydecks that don't allow a pump down the front. Please try it and report back (if you don't knock yourself out and drown after hitting your chin)." The idea to shove the pump down the top of the sprayskirt requires unfastening the PFD, since the tops of sprayskirts normally extend some distance underneath the PFD. Mr. Broze in "Deep Trouble" (p.84) accepted limited culpability for misleading dead David Kelley with a paddlefloat "talisman", but negated this admission by not confessing the main paddlefloat dangers: impossible to pump out in real conditions, impossible to brace and retrieve the paddle behind the cockpit without re-capsizing; despite referring to needed sponsons stability in several places in "Deep Trouble"!

I shall fax this letter to you at Sea Kayaker 206-781-1141 today, September 2nd, 2011.

Yours truly,
Tim Ingram

Hi Stephen:

I know that you, like the majority of citizens in Canada and the U.S.,
understand that you can't roll up reliably to save yourself and
paddlefloats will break your paddle, re-capsize you, and prevent
pumping out; even Sea Kayaker Magazine and Matt Broze admit that
(http://www.sponsonguy.com). However, all of this fraud about kayak
rescues and canoe rescues also means that I can't control
mis-information given to you about sponsons. The same fraud that
prevents foolproof lifesaving rescues for canoes and kayaks also
prevents honest understanding about sponsons, that may be used for
fishing, sunbathing, urinating, having lunch, any activity that you
want to not capsize in a canoe or kayak.

I suggest that you read carefully
http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html
Sponsons are commonsense, but commonsense left canoeing and kayaking
over 2,000 deaths ago, about 1993-94, according to all the major
authors.

Thanks, Tim



 

Dear John:

Apparently you are annoyed: You want sponsons but you can't have them.
You might find a billionaire in China who wants the huge profits on 50
cent sponsons, but you might not. You would be better off joining a
class action lawsuit since you are lied to and endangered in a canoe
or kayak, like 2.2 million Ontario school children and the 6 Ontario
school children who died in agony in Ontario in 2010, see the names
and addresses at http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html

Instead of searching "offshore for someone who has the balls to make
and market sponsons without all the political crap..........", you
would be more popular ensuring that the lies at the Halton school
board and school boards across Canada and the U.S. are stopped, having
killed over 400 Canadians and their children, and over 1700 Americans
and their children in canoes and kayaks, far more than any deadly
vehicle. Truth and justice are important concepts.

It is good that you are angry about sponsons, but it is better not to
look for an offshore source, that may be impossible to find or just as
psychopathic toward school children as the 2 dozen small, summertime
businesses in Ontario, profiting on 15 dead in Ontario alone in 2010.
Truth and justice are the most important concepts in public safety.

You see John, today there is no more blatant and deadly fraud: almost
100% of everyone reading this realizes that 2.2 million Ontario school
children think that they can toss a canoe into the air, shake out the water or
pull a canoe over the gunwales without risk of capsizing like the 12
dead Ontario school children in Temiskaming or the Girl Guides 2003,
before and after condemnation of these unworkable "rescues" (Franks
1977, Mason 1988, Raffan 2002, Jacobson 2005), among others. It takes
balls, John, to join the Class Action Lawsuit, but you too are
endangered by the fraud, and eventually both you and 2.2 million
Ontario school children can have sponsons, truth and justice. This is
the political crap John. Most citizens are annoyed by political crap,
there are just no examples of more blatant political crap in Canada as
this fraud. Hopefully grieving families and children throughout
Ontario and Canada (and eventually, the U.S.), can count on your
support.

Thanks, Tim

Hi Kenny:

Sorry for the discourse, but apparently you understand the reality of
this scam that governments won't bother, any more than Wall Street
scams. If you Google "Canoe and Kayak Class Action Lawsuit", you will
see a simplified webpage with most of the details for a civil action
in Canada or America. Almost all citizens in any country can
understand that the "rescues" are ridiculously impossible in
emergencies, ensuring no-one can get out of the water on their own
when they capsize, in contrast to 2 ten year olds with 5 second, 50
cent sponsons.

If you look at the pictures you may understand the simple idea of
sufficient buoyancy at the widest point of a canoe or kayak, for
example 2 chunks of foam. Unfortunately there is so much
misinformation about this simple idea that I get phone calls from
people who seem unable to understand high school physics, calculating
the weight of the water in the canoe for example, when that is
irrelevant. Only the force of buoyancy sufficient to stabilize the
canoe or kayak enough to paddle to safety while flooded is necessary.
That's it in one sentence! Unfortunately almost everything you read
about canoe and kayak safety except that sentence is potentially
deadly, since there is no way  without sponsons to stabilize canoes
and kayaks enough for self-rescue, to paddle to safety. The
instruction cult even recommends dangerous ways to attach the sponsons
to protect their deadly scam. And then blames the dead as victims of
"Darwins Law", i.e. too stupid to be allowed to reproduce; justifying
their murder scam, even the murders of American and Canadian school
children!

It would be refreshing to have these psychopaths who endanger school
children, killing some for money and their own ego trip, explain their
thinking in a court of law. The same ideas at the Halton school board
(Toronto) are practised in your state of Alabama by the American Canoe
Association. A judge and jury is likely to be just as curious in
America why school children need to be endangered, and blamed for
their own deaths when they die, given that any 2 ten year old children
can save themselves and any other victims in the water; something
impossible for the top experts at the American Canoe Association or
Paddle Canada (with many authors having condemned their "rescues" for
decades.)

So Kenny, until this scam is punished, innocent citizens who are
easily tricked by the "expert" instruction that makes canoes and
kayaks as deadly as possible will be denied sponsons; simply because
it is so easy for the murderers to confuse the public about how to
attach 50 cent sponsons (recycled closed cell foam of sufficient size
and proper shape to provide sufficient buoyancy), or even more
expensive CO2 inflated pillow shaped sponsons. There are about a dozen
types of sponsons, even a type using the foam sleeping mats carried on
any Boy Scout or Girl Guide canoe trip. You understand that alone, one
person against a murder cult of thousands taking money at the American
Canoe Association, I have no means to prevent the sabatoge of
sponsons, despite their simplicity. Wall Street at least does not
target kids, probably because they don't have enough money.

You might be able to read this and see the pictures at
http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html to figure out your
own sponson solution. Just experiment in a swimming pool or safe water wearing a
PFD to ensure your solution is absolutely foolproof: Guaranteed to
work every time clipping sponsons to the mid-point of a canoe. Fastex
buckles used as clips, sold through sporting goods stores, used to
have a high enough breaking strength, for example. Let me know.

Thanks, Tim

Hi Renata:

Sponsons cannot be sold because you are supposed to buy all the kayak
rescues (that you would not trust your life with, of course.)
Currently the instruction scam puts out all kinds of dangerous ideas
about sponsons, i.e. how they fit etc., in order to sell the
fraudulent canoe and kayak instruction. In this climate I cannot
reasonably sell any sponsons to the public due to this dedicated cult
of dangerous instruction and misinformation, who make much more money
from instruction than kayak sales. Years ago I sold sponsons for
Nordkapps all over the world, and I would meet with Frank Goodman (the
designer of Norkapps) and his pal, author Derek Hutchinson (who also
designed very narrow British kayaks) at the annual symposiums.

Sadly canoes kill many more than kayaks, including many kids on school
trips: See http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html

Dear Editor of The Ottawa Citizen:

Your recent article is part of a deadly Ponzi Scheme that killed 6 school children among 15 dead in Ontario alone in 2010. Fortunately this wet Spring in 2011 has cut the death toll since fewer are going out than in last year's hot, early Spring:

"The shakeout: A self-rescue technique
Ottawa Citizen - Dave Brown - May 21, 2011
Let's say you're out for a paddle in your canoe and the weather turns, or worse, you've found yourself in rapids. One minute you're canoeing on a nice sunny day, and the next you're dealing with stormy, ..."

This article is a lie: no normal people have the arm strength and leg strength to shake a canoe free of water and then re-enter when waves simply refill the canoe anyway. This "rescue" which is not a rescue since it cannot rescue most people in a swimming pool, is just as ridiculous as the "Capistrano Flip", requiring the arm strength to throw a canoe into the air, flipping it upright and free of water (and hopefully not drifting away in the wind faster than a fast swimmer in a PFD.) See Paddling a Flooded Canoe to Shore without flotation for stability or "Canoe Over Canoe" at the Halton School Board: http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html

The famous Canadian canoeist across the Ottawa River from you, Bill Mason, friend of Trudeau, stated the "canoe over canoe" didn't work, after the 12 dead kids at Temiskaming 1978, all wearing PFDs. They could not even get back into canoes, capsizing more canoes, let alone pulling capsized canoes across the gunwales to empty them. Mason favoured internal buoyancy to stabilize flooded canoes (this was before the sponsons invented in 1987, that offer much more stability.) The ten year old girls with 50 cent, 5 second sponsons in the pictures, without practice or instruction show what a "real rescue" is: simple, inexpensive and foolproof. And able to save the lives of all normal capsized victims in the water.

Your paper is falsely publishing "rescues" that in fact are not rescues, since even on paper they are seen to be futile in waves and stormy weather, even with the arm and leg strength of Hercules. The writer is a mendacious fool who apparently gains ego stimulation from writing about his apparent superiority over dead school children in your paper. In a lawsuit it would be best for your paper not to be implicated in this fraud. Years ago The Toronto Star apologized for publishing a similarly misleading article that they did not realize was so false and misleading as to potentially endanger citizens. Well-known politicians, MPs, MPPs and 2 Premiers have no trouble understanding this. Fraud schemes for money, even at risk to harm innocent people, are fairly common. Police officers likeOPP Fantino and his friend RCMP Zaccardelli, fired for lying to Parliament, could have stopped these over 400 canoe and kayak deaths in Canada long ago.

Yours truly, Tim Ingram, phone 705-549-3722
 
 
 

Dear Randy:

If school children can't have them, why could you? Read again please.
Sponsons interfere with the instruction ponzi scam that makes the most
money for the canoe and kayak industry worldwide, even more than
selling canoes and kayaks. This instruction ponzi scam needs the most
unstable and dangerous canoes and kayaks as possible, to sell more
instruction which specifically denies emergency stability, from
sponsons or anything else that would provide emergency stability, for
maximum numbers of capsizes and re-capsizes, to create demand for even
more fraudulent instruction (that victims think will save them!) The
instruction ponzi scam specifically needs the most unstable canoes and
kayaks possible to sell the ponzi scheme instruction that anyone can
see cannot provide stability, except for the plainly fraudulent ponzi
lies that state emergency stability is not necessary for you, anyone
else, or even school children! See the Girl Guides (you asked for
photos), shortly before they find themselves in terror, dying in the
water at http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html

I think that you can understand this if you try. Obviously you have
decided that instruction cannot provide you with stability in a
lifesaving emergency or any other time you want your canoe or kayak
much more stable (fishing, eating lunch, urinating, relaxing, sailing,
etc.), so you don't have to worry about capsizing such normally narrow
and tippy craft. What most people don't realize is that canoes and
kayaks can be the best possible rescue craft with sponsons. In
Newfoundland (a very rough and dangerous place in the North Atlantic,
off the East Coast of Canada), Canadian Coast Guard SAR officers use
kayaks with sponsons, launched from large, Zodiac, twin-engined
powerboats (with big air sponsons for the same stablility reasons), to
rescue victims from rocky surf where multi-million dollar helicopters
can't work nearly as fast (based far away), or can't operate at all
due to high cliffs.

The ponzi scheme enables 36,000 police officers in Canada, unlike the
SAR officers, to have lots of canoe and kayak deaths to scam taxpayer
dollars for more police protection that cannot provide the very thing
that canoe and kayak rescues need: Emergency stability to get out of
the water and stay out. Only 50 cent sponsons or any of about 12
different types of sponsons, including CO2 sponsons can provide this
(unless you have another great invention instead, for an affordable
and practical and foolproof way to stabilize canoes and kayaks), when
you need it, for lifesaving rescue, fishing, urinating, relaxing,
sailing etc.)

Please read carefully,
Thanks, Tim

representative inquiries from people like yourself, interested in
sponsons. Canoes and kayaks are narrow by nature and even ivory kayak
models in graves over 2,000 years old have sponson concepts. Even the
giant 70 foot canoes in northwest North America, carrying missionaries
in the 19th century, used marine mammal floats as sponsons in storms,
to avoid death. Today sponsons are used for stability while fishing,
sailing and emergency stability to ensure human bodies can get out of
deadly cool waters, and stay out: ensuring rescue. Without this
assurance of stability, the risk of re-capsize of already cold, wet
and probably terrified victims, results in victims dying in the water,
PFD or not.

I am ensuring that the parents of school children in Ontario, in
Canada, the US and UK, where there is at least a remnant of a working
court system, can group with other parents and grieving classmates,
even adult victims' families, using Facebook.
As you would agree, along with almost everyone else, Justice and
politicians everywhere are not good at protecting basic human rights:
Lies and cruelty to make a dollar to kill Canadian Girl Guides at
Summer Camp, horrifying cruelty, as these school children die in the
water, crying that they will never see their families again. This is
not a movie: this is real.

I have advised people regarding their safety on expeditions around the
world for decades for free. I have also documented the OPP and RCMP,
large police forces totalling 36,000 officers in Canada, recommending
Girl Guides be saved in future by a spring loaded pole with a flag
attached, lying along the keel of every Canoe in Canada, to pop up
when the canoe is capsized, to show the police boats and helicopters
where the victims are dying in cold waters, instead of 5 second 50
cent sponsons used by 2 ten year old girls without any practice in the
pictures. You can't make this stuff up: Thousands of well-paid
Canadian cops denying school children any means to save themselves
with 50 cents of commonsense; while the cops in million dollar
choppers and boats rake in millions of taxpayer dollars to save these
victims, usually too late! This is what is known as a protection
racket, familiar to mobsters. My survey of cops shows that almost all
see this perfidy and truly would rather protect the public, including
their children.

All of this information and much more is available to any grieving
victims of this scandal. You nor anyone else can easily buy the best
type of sponsons for your use because sponsons interfere with the
Instruction scam as well as the Police protection racket.

Think about it,
Thanks, Tim

This email exchange with a pleasant member of the commercial canoe and kayak community explains the class action lawsuit:

Dear  N:

As I told you yesterday and before that: "You are
apparently "miffed" above that I am denying you sponson information.
You are entitled to the same sponson information as any Canadian court
of law. Anything less would not prevent the continuing cruel murders
of adults and school children in Canada." Over 400 Canadians prevented
from having any means to escape certain death in cold waters after
canoe and kayak capsize, presumably your very good reason for wanting
sponsons. But your simple want is not as important as over 400 dead,
including over 200 dead Canadian school children deliberately lied to,
defrauded by hundreds of dollars of useless instruction, and denied
sponsons.

Read what I sent you and you can perhaps figure out 50 cent sponsons
or conceive of CO2 sponsons bolted in a tiny 1lb. container attached
to both sides of the beam gunwale  line of a kayak or canoe., inflated
by pulling a tab like a pouch CO2 inflatable PFD: very simple. But you
can't be trusted by me to honestly deploy either simple concept. Foam,
a length of cord and 2 clips are all you need for:   "Any two Ten Year
Old Girls are able to rescue themselves without any
instruction or practice (they just clip sponsons onto gunwales in an
emergency, within 5 seconds, with 50 cent foam sponsons), then paddle
a flooded canoe to shore at 2 knots, even standing up, but normally
seated on seats. Both sponsons are normally clipped at both gunwales,
like the left sponson, permitting self-bailing of most of the water by
leaning to one side. In order to permit total flooding for this
picture, it was necessary to clip one sponson 6 inces higher than the
other, so water could flow over one gunwale. These girls (or any
normal ten year old children) can rescue any other victims in the
water, even obese or disabled adults, who only need to crawl over a
gunwale, and be paddled to shore at about 2 knots. The canoe weighs at
least 2,000 lbs., flooded. Simple: Any suitable buoyancy, like 50 cent
foam floats that are clipped onto gunwales in 5 seconds by any two 10
year old girls, who easily rescue themselves and anyone else. Very
simple, cheap, 50 cents and a foolproof means of saving themselves,
like the universal life rings around any waterfront."

You might not be as honest as the 10 year old kids; although you seem
"nice". You are, after all, apparently making money from a cult that
has killed over 400 innocent Canadians in a most agonizing method,
over 200 children like the Girl Guides crying in terror in the cold
water, wearing PFDs and slowly dying of hypothermia while knowing they
will never see their families again. You apparently could care less
about these 200 tortured and murdered Canadian school children. You
just want sponsons as of 3 days ago, while profitting from a criminal
fraud for how many years, that murdered how many Canadian school
children and adults? You seem to think in a very simple-minded way:
Yes or no. Read the "Kanawa Magazine" article:
http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html

You want your sponson lollipop right now, while apparently still
engaged in deadly lies: selling fraudulent safety instruction and
"rescues" that don't exist, to Canadian children. As long as you are
part of a deadly fraud, killing school children and adults, you get
only what a court of law gets. The grieving loved ones, judge and jury
will watch the Paddle Canada and ORCKA defendents attempt to save
themselves in a swimming pool using a variety of "rescues" and the
usual line: "if that "rescue" doesn't work, try this "rescue" from
"your bag of tricks"; the common bait and switch line that suggests
canoes and kayaks have so many "rescues" that they are really safe!.
If one doesn't work then another will! The judge, jury and grieving
families ask why all these rescues don't always work, as if children
dying in the water have time to try them all out. Then 2 ten year old
girls with 50 cent sponsons at
http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html clip on sponsons in
5 seconds, rescuing themselves and anyone else, even obese adults in
the water, and paddle to shore at 2 knots. The flooded water operates
for stability much like the lead keel of a sailboat, but the 2,000
lbs. of water is neutral buoyancy ballast, which cannot sink the canoe
or kayak, unlike 2,000 lbs. of lead. Additionally the flooded canoe
allows large, even very heavy adult victims easy salvation by crawling
over a submerged gunwale, to be paddled to safety at 2 knots by even
10 year old children, without practice. The canoe does not become
heavier with large, even slightly obese victims aboard; since they
displace their own weight in volume of water, according to the ancient
idea of Archimedes.

Why lie to Ontario school children about Archimedes and deliberately
endanger them at the Halton School Board? And why don't you comment on
the huge numbers of deaths from the criminal fraud while demanding
your sponsons? I receive phone calls from the US, Canada and abroad
regarding the deaths in canoes and kayaks and the fraudulent "rescues"
that are so ridiculous to try to perform in any emergencies. I advise
people in 28 foot racing canoes how survive in races of a thousand
miles when waves kick up. Or the multitude of considerations rounding
Cape Horn in a kayak. Crossings of Lake Superior or the Bay of Fundy
were routine a decade ago; although ill-advised, even by these
"experts", since large bodies of water are always capable of more
violence than planned for, despite sponson crossings of Atlantic and
Pacific.

What the grieving families of over 400 dead Canadians, and the judge
and jury want to know is why any expert without sponsons, no matter
how many years and thousands of dollars of instruction, cannot perform
the rescues of the 10 year old girls. I can understand why you want
sponsons, but you will not be able to deny these grieving victims
Justice for their dead children and loved ones. The sponsons denied to
these dead victims are likewise denied to you by your own deadly cult,
until the Paddle Canada/ORCKA cult murders are stopped. Famous
Canadian Bill Mason was against these fraudulent "rescues" in the
80's. Many other authors and instructors, very much alive, feel the
same way right now!

Thanks, and I hope that you think hard about all this,
Tim

Emails to MPPs in Ontario:

May 2, 2011

Dear Grieving Families and Outraged Citizens:

                        Re: Amber Alert, Newly Dead School Children in Canoes, 2011

Despite the existence of Amber Alerts and public support for the protection of children, Ontario school children and school children throughout Canada are targeted for death in this canoe and kayak ponzi scam, denying lifesaving rescues. Citizens of Ontario and Canada offer you condolences and support for the horrible, agonizing deaths of your loved ones. Both school
children and adults throughout Canada have been targeted for fraudulent safety and death, with profits from fraudulent instruction going to Paddle Canada and the Ontario Recreational Canoeing and Kayaking Association (ORCKA). These fraudulent rescues are condemned not only by many instructors and most authors, they are obviously so tricky and unworkable, even in a swimming pool, that maximum capsizes and maximum death are assured, lies and fraud known and obvious to the OPP, RCMP and any reasonable citizens reading this.

The OPP has endorsed these criminal killings since 1993, lying to citizens while denying children and adults any means to get out of deadly waters, as thoroughly documented, for a total of  over 80 dead Ontario school children (over 200 dead school children in Canada and over 200 dead Canadian adults since 1993). Paddle Canada and the Ontario Recreational Canoeing
and Kayaking Association are seen to enjoy killing these innocent victims for money and self-gratification. The OPP has denied 50 cent sponsons used by any 10 year old kids to rescue anyone from the water in 5 seconds, as simple as a lifesaving ring at any waterfront park. The Grieving Families and friends can now use this information to stop this deadly scheme, outlined clearly at the Halton school board: http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html          .

Grieving families who have lost their children often try to prevent such terrible pain from happening to anyone else. The truth here enables them to save dozens of lives in Canada annually:
"I had pointed out to students that even the most unconventional thesis can be legitimately proposed as long as there is evidence of sufficient quality to support it – astounding ideas like the Earth is round, for example, or Galileo’s astonishing claim that Jupiter has moons. People may refuse to look at the evidence if they are psychologically unable to accept it, but eventually the truth or falsity of such claims will emerge." The pictures of 10 year old kids able to rescue themselves in 5 seconds, clipping on 50 cent sponsons, are as obvious as the fact that no cop, expert, or anyone else can paddle a flooded canoe or kayak without capsizing and re-capsizing until dead.

Your newly dead children join 40 dead Ontario school children and over 100 dead school children in canoes across Canada since the OPP correspondence filed in 2002. In 2010 Joseph Silva, Brodie Williamson, both of St. Catherines, Robert O'Brien of Barrie, and Dean Ferro of Cambridge joined the Girl Guides Megan Mitchell and Erica Auclair, out of approximately 40 dead Ontario school children since 2002. The total number of victims in Ontario alone, since 1993 and The 1994
Transportation Safety Board of Canada Report Number M93W0008, is over 80. The profitable fraud was begun by Paddle Canada and ORCKA in 1993, deliberately involving fraudulent "rescues", requiring movement and tricky balance to such an extreme extent as to cause further capsize of canoes and kayaks, while providing no re-capsize protection in the same conditions in which capsizes first occurred. Extra Stability in these emergencies is seen as necessary to rescue victims out of the water and stay out of the water, rather obviously to all reasonable citizens.

Of course no school child nor any OPP officer can balance a flooded canoe nor put a PFD on in the water to save themselves, nor survive any other tricky balancing in canoe "rescues"; tricky balancing and very deadly lies that ensure maximum capsizes and maximum endangerment of school children and adults in Ontario and throughout Canada. Tricky balancing and deadly lies have killed over 200 Canadian adults since Paddle Canada and ORCKA began the ponzi safety fraud, but over 200 Canadian school children, including over 80 Ontario school children, have been deliberately killed by the school board rescue fraud, shown at Halton: http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html  The OPP has endorsed the murders of over 80 Ontario school children by Paddle Canada and ORCKA; although any 10 year old girls in the pictures with 50 cent sponsons can save themselves and others in 5 seconds! Extra Stability in these emergencies is seen as necessary for rescue, plain and obvious to all reasonable citizens.

This ponzi fraud makes canoes and kayaks as dangerous as possible, resulting in more capsizes, not less; and less PFD wearage due to the PFD scam, illustrated for example at the Halton school board.
"Believing that you can locate, don and fasten a PFD in the water is dangerous for many reasons; adverse wind and wave conditions can make this extremely difficult, if not impossible; you could unexpectedly fall into water and the vessel (with the PFD aboard) could be unreachable; and, cold water can severely impede your ability to don and fasten a PFD in the water." http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/marinesafety/debs-obs-equipment-lifejackets-information-1324.htm
Extra Stability for rescue emergencies is seen as plain and obvious commonsense to all reasonable citizens but for the widespread endorsement of this fraud to cover-up the criminal negligence of OPP Schlorff, Smith and Fantino; like the OPP plainly lying that they can save themselves with these fraudulent "rescues" in a swimming pool. The OPP and RCMP have actively lied to the Ontario public and the Canadian public, and have ensured maximum deaths through other school boards
across Canada, to cover up their own criminally negligent behavior. In fact no officers are so stupid to state these fraudulent "rescues" work. The pictures of the 10 year old kids rescuing themselves in 5 seconds with 50 cent sponsons or inflatable CO2 sponsons are obvious. Just as obvious as any OPP officers failing to paddle a flooded canoe without re-capsizing, failing to drag an overturned canoe over another canoe while risking more capsizes and leaving victims to soak in cold water, or failing to put a PFD on in the water, the height of negligent stupidity documented at the Halton school board and other boards across Canada: http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html

Not only has the OPP deliberately lied to 2 million school children in Ontario, the OPP has deliberately blamed dead Ontario school children for dying in canoes, for not taking enough of this fraudulent safety instruction documented at the Halton board or other school boards across Canada. There are laws against hate: preventing the killing of homosexual people or other minority groups. The OPP has endorsed a cult, ORCKA and Paddle Canada, to kill canoe and kayak victims and blame them for their own deaths. This cult includes some members who recommend sponsons, condemning these fraudulent "rescues" for killing their own friends! This OPP and RCMP endorsed cult is a House of Cards, teaching fraudulent "rescues" that are unsafe and unworkable in reality, as stated by most expert testimony, including many instructors and most authors.

The OPP and RCMP have been instrumental in blaming the victims for their own deaths, in fact using propaganda to demean both the victims and grieving loved ones, stating they would not have died if they had taken expensive, fraudulent instruction or had not used the PFD scam (put it on in the water) as described at the Halton school board.

No cop in Canada can paddle a flooded canoe to safety without extra buoyancy like sponsons, nor perform a "canoe over canoe rescue", maximizing the risk of capsizing more canoes and leaving panicked victims soaking in cold water, instead of them getting out immediately with sponsons, like the 10 year old girls in the pictures; securing the frightened victims out of the water instead.

OPP endorsement of this ponzi fraud, to cover-up the criminal negligence of OPP Schlorff, Smith and Fantino, has encouraged members of Paddle Canada and ORCKA to routinely describe members of the public using canoes and kayaks as inferior: "unibrow" and "newbies" are common references to non-members of the cult; when in fact no cop can get out of the water in 5 seconds like 10 year old kids with 50 cent sponsons or inflatable sponsons. This systematic degradation of victims persuades society that these victims deserved to die. This is common in crimes against humanity. Normally society protects innocent human life; especially school children in Ontario and Canada, who normally would be protected, we expect, by the OPP and RCMP.

The OPP faces a Facebook attack on their deliberate and criminally negligent actions, organized by the grieving classmates and the grieving families of over 200 murdered Canadian school children, over 80 in Ontario alone. A Class action lawsuit brought against Paddle Canada and ORCKA clearly shows the fraud is designed for maximum profit, despite maximum capsizes and tricky balancing, not safety. Harper had the opportunity from MP John Reynolds and MP Vic Toews to correct this fraud in 2004. See the email. Harper chose to lie and breach the trust, as he has done repeatedly in Parliament, to allow the OPP and RCMP to have children killed in a most agonizing method using cold waters. Over 75 Canadian school children, including 30 school children in Ontario have died in pain since Harper lied. Canadian citizens see the power of a Facebook campaign against this murderous Ponzi scheme! Any Canadian journalist can understand this, like Premiers McGuinty and Williams, John Tory and other decent people.

All of this is easily proved in any court of law: my surveys of justices of the peace, judges and police officers prove a 100% understanding that the fraudulent "rescues" cannot possibly be performed successfully in lifesaving emergencies by either young OPP officers or canoeing experts. This is obvious even on paper, let alone the pictures of 10 year old kids with 5 second sponsons who outperform any cops or criminals at Paddle Canada and ORCKA: http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html

In short, grieving families and grieving school children across Canada, grieving for classmates, powered by Facebook, can stop this deliberate endangerment of both school children and adults in Ontario and Canada. THESE GRIEVING VICTIMS ARE UNLIKELY TO TOLERATE THE CONTINUING LIES, ENDANGERMENT AND MURDER OF SCHOOL CHILDREN IN CANADA, nor tolerate the defamation of their dead loved ones in the scam. A class action lawsuit, involving ultimately well over 200 Canadian school children, exposes the criminals at ORCKA and Paddle Canada, and the criminal negligence of the OPP in Ontario and the RCMP in Canada. Toronto Law Firms are ready for the first newly dead in a few weeks, this Spring of 2011. See the MP Reynolds and MP Toews email denied by Harper. The police and political system are easily corrupted despite many decent politicians and many decent cops.

Grieving families who have lost their children often try to prevent such terrible pain from happening to anyone else. The truth here enables them to save dozens of lives in Canada annually.

Dear OPP Commissioner Lewis:

Re: OPP Child Murder Scheme

You have not replied (nor OPP Fantino), to any of my polite, registered letters, regarding the deliberate OPP policy to have Ontario school children killed by Paddle Canada and ORCKA (Ontario Recreational Canoeing and Kayaking Association). The OPP endorses the killing of Ontario school children by denying them any means of getting out of the water, after capsizing in a canoe or kayak, not due to stupidity regarding the natural consequences of leaving children with no escape from deadly waters (agonizing deaths by hypothermia and drowning). OPP Fantino is not that stupid; although morally corrupt like his friend RCMP Zaccardelli. OPP Schlorff and OPP K.C. Smith have known of this ponzi scheme since 2002, acknowledged by letter only a month before the 2 dead Girl Guides, for example.

1. It stretches the credulity of any court or any citizen that you, OPP Fantino, OPP Schlorff and OPP Smith refuse to stop this deadly scheme so ORCKA and Paddle Canada can sell fraudulent and very expensive instruction that cannot rescue anyone from the water, sold to the public and even schools for profit, hundreds of dollars for an instruction weekend: http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html
Most likely you are trying to cover-up OPP (and RCMP) incompetence in this obvious criminal fraud, leaving over 200 Ontario victims dead in the water. This is the most likely explanation for your cruel and criminally negligent policy.

2. As you can see, even canoe instructors complain about this fraud and the deadly instruction that has killed even their own adult friends! You, OPP Lewis, endorse even more murders in 2011. This OPP policy is now known to all of the grieving families, schools and citizens in Ontario. I shall send this email to the Premier and all MPPs. Both Mr. McGuinty and Mr. John Tory, along with federal politicians, have responded positively to this moral issue in recent years. Attorney General Bentley has apparently tried to protect the OPP reputation instead of Ontario school children.

3. OPP information about the murders of the 2 Girl Guides in 2003: OPP Schlorff, despite the sponson information available at the Coroner's Inquest, instead brought to the Canadian Coast Guard a "lifesaving" concept from the Inquest: a "spring-loaded pole with flag lying along the keel of a canoe, after capsize the spring-loaded pole erects itself upon the overturned canoe." The point of this OPP information is to enhance visibility of overturned canoes in order for OPP rescuers to see victims in time, rather than provide 50 cent 5 second sponsons for the children to immediately rescue themselves and paddle to safety. Apparently the OPP does not want victims to rescue themselves with 5 second 50 cent sponsons, any more than Paddle Canada and ORCKA who profit by selling expensive and useless instruction with full OPP endorsement. So the OPP, Paddle Canada and ORCKA are benefitting from the deliberate deaths of school children; to gain money from the taxpayers to expand their "protection racket".

4. Canoes and kayaks are prone to capsize and many children as well as adult Canadians die since they have no means to rescue themselves. OPP and RCMP lies back up the Instruction Ponzi Scheme by Paddle Canada and ORCKA. No cop in Canada can use this expensive instruction to get out of the water to save their own life, let alone the 6 dead Ontario school children in 2010!

5. OPP Lewis, the families and friends of the dead victims about to die in 2011, due to your negligence and the corrupt negligence of Attorney General Bentley, can easily organize a very successful Class action lawsuit regarding the agonizing deaths of well over 200 Canadians.

6. Remember OPP Lewis, if your children in school were killed in a canoe or kayak, you might want to sue the criminals too; since the police refuse to protect Ontario school children. The OPP and RCMP may also be sued and eventually, criminally prosecuted as well, not to mention embarrassed. I have thousands of pages regarding OPP and RCMP collusion involving OPP Schlorff, to deliberately kill these victims and also blame them for their own deaths, to confuse and dissuade the grieving families and friends from speaking out. Facebook enables these obvious facts to come out forcefully against the corrupt OPP and Attorney General Bentley.

7. OPP Fantino, recently elected to Parliament, campaigned on "protecting children"; OPP Fantino is a criminal liar. In 2010 alone he murdered 6 Ontario school children in canoes and kayaks, lying about them having canoe and kayak rescues despite canoe and kayak experts freely admitting no rescues to get victims out of the water exist, except using sponsons like the 10 year old girls you see in the pictures. OPP Lewis, you are also a murderous liar, and a facebook class action lawsuit will prove this as easily as exposure of any mass murderer. AG Bentley is similarly a criminal liar in a justice system fully supported by Dr. Charles Smith.

The truth is easily seen if you care to focus on your duty. Stop covering-up OPP lies that kill dozens of Ontario school children, even protecting a "don a PFD in-the-water" scam at the Halton School Board: http://www.sponsonguy.com/Classactionlawsuit.html .

Stop this criminal behavior and stop this fraud by arresting the 5 main perpetrators, as I have asked the OPP for over a decade.

Everyone is well aware that no means of rescue in canoes and kayaks, to get out of the water and stay out using the necessary emergency stability, guarantees death! The deadly lies perpetrated by the OPP to endorse the ORCKA and Paddle Canada Ponzi Scheme are obvious:

"Hypothermia is your worst enemy...Even in July, a dunking in the waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence can lead to total loss of manual dexterity within 5 minutes and death within 15 to 20." (Sea Kayaking Safety Guide, National Library of Canada ISBN 2-89101-179-1, 2003, p.55)"
 
 

Canoe and Kayak Ponzi Scheme

You will see in the webpage  http://www.sponsonguy.com/Lewis.html that well over 450 Canadians, dead in canoes or kayaks (mostly canoes), have been denied this simple lifesaving knowledge since 1994. I spoke with Mr. Jon Churchill, Canadian Coast Guard, on the phone from my home in Penetanguishene at that time. I had recently visited the US Military Kayakers at their base near Boston, together with Canadian John Dowd (one of the few highly intelligent civilian kayaking authors and popular with Military kayakers.) A few months later I spoke with Brian Henry, Canadian owner of Ocean River Sports in Victoria B.C. where the Canadian Coast Guard SAR officer Colin ___ conducted the survey of opinions among kayak instuctors. The owner spoke to me apologetically, in that he had to negate these findings, as they would anger the larger instructors lobby, despite the obvious. His business would have suffered from boycott by instructors profitting from the fraudulent instruction, who act as the chief salesmen, who advise the public about the "best kayaks" or canoes. Similarly Mr. Churchill, also living in Victoria at that time, appeared rather belligerent and dismissive toward me on the phone. He decided on The Big Lie. Mr. Churchill, together with others such as P. Garapick and D. Hache followed suit, even a full decade later. I have full documentation of all of this.

Churchill and the rest refused to hear the obvious, whether 50 cent 5 second sponsons or CO2 sponsons concealed inside gunwales, manufactured similarly to inflatable liferafts or PFDs, and inflated by pulling a cord. This is how 450 Canadians were left with no means to save their lives, and in fact expensive canoe and kayak instruction makes canoes and kayakes even more unstable and deadly in emergencies, through risky movements, as these fraudulent rescues require.

The emergency stability of canoes and kayaks, a rather obvious safety requirement of such normally tippy craft, is denied to sell expensive and fraudulent instruction that requires tricky balancing acts. It is plain and obvious that this "safety" instruction causes more capsizes in emergency situations by denying emergency stability to canoes and kayaks. Canoes and kayaks are designed to be as dangerous as possible for profitable, criminal and very deadly fraud, contradicting historical sponson use at the Canadian Canoe Museum in Peterborough and Canadian canoeing icon and film-maker Bill Mason.

You will notice politicians such as Premier McGuinty and John Tory recognizing the obvious. A Canadian Coast Guard Search and Rescue Team in Newfoundland contacted me a few years ago, and I advised them how to make a kayak life raft to rescue victims in rocky surf. (Put a quantity of children's water-play foam "noodles" along the gunwales, inside and outside of a 10 foot $600 plastic kayak.) But the Newfoundlanders already knew how to do that, having grown up in extended families where even the shapes of fishing boats have direct consequences for survival at sea. They understood the obvious, and their million dollar Coast Guard helicopters were impeded from operation in rocky surf along the cliff-strewn coastlines in Nfld. I contacted Premier Williams to ensure that these Newfoundland lifesavers were not to suffer any reprisals from Transport Canada for acting outside of the Ottawa fraud scheme. Premier Williams asked his Attorney General Jerome Kennedy to write to Attorney General Nicholson about this, with a copy sent to myself. I have numerous copies of such correspondence to Government officials, going nowhere.

Most importantly, this fraud functions as a lucrative Ponzi scheme; the higher paid receiving money from instructors who wish to be paid more to teach different levels of fraudulent instruction to new-comers, and instructor trainers being paid more money to teach different levels to instructors (and even lower-level instructor trainers), who then achieve increasing levels of instructor trainer certification, with corresponding market value; but no means of self rescue, that even an iconic Canadian paddler like Bill Mason, friend of Trudeau, recognized and documented in his last book before he died. At Paddle Canada both children of Bill Mason are patrons, selling this instruction that their late father, Bill Mason, did not recommend: "canoe over canoe...I have since changed my mind..." (Song of the Paddle,1988, p.126). Bill Mason is something of a patron saint at Paddle Canada, in their advertisements, thirty years after his early death. In fact Bill Mason recommended canoe flotation for rescue stability in his last book instead, although this was a few years before modern sponsons were invented.
 

There are numerous instructors within this Ponzi Scheme, functioning mostly at lower paid levels of this Ponzi scheme, who will testify to this fraud: canoe-over-canoe, paddling flooded canoes without flotation, Capistano flips, etc.  The death toll of this Ponzi scheme in Canada exceeds Air India.

I hope that you can help suffering Canadian families: this fraud both kills and degrades the dead victims by blaming them for their own deaths; i.e. not taking enough expensive instruction, that in fact is never enough, and inevitably involves ever-increasing payments for higher levels of participation, even to become an instructor and even to become an instructor trainer "to be safe" in this Ponzi scheme. There are numerous instructors in this Ponzi scheme who will testify to this fraud, whether they "like me" or not. They have their own reasons for testifying to the fraud without me. There is considerable animosity between Paddle Canada and ORCKA (Ontario Recreational Canoeing and Kayaking Association) over rights to instruction fees and jurisdiction.

Dear Mr. Ingram:

Thank you for your e-mail concerning RCMP investigation Canadian Coast Guard Canoe and Kayak Murders. I have taken the liberty of forwarding your concerns to our critic for Justice, Mr. Vic Toews, MP.  I am sure you will be hearing from him in due course.
Sincerely, John Reynolds, MP
 

The Canadian Coast Guard decided to make canoes and kayaks as dangerous as possible in August 1994, recommending fraudulent "rescues" requiring movement that further de-stabilizes canoes and kayaks, causing more capsizes and more deaths; censoring and then punishing Search and Rescue Officer Colin ____, who conducted the sponson study at Ocean River Sports in Victoria, B.C. The Canadian Sponson Study essentially agreed with the US Military Special Forces Kayakers, who have worked closely with Canadian Military Kayakers since WW II.  The 10th Airbourne Special Forces at Fort Devens, MA invited me to their base in 1994 along with the sea kayaking teams of 12 NATO countries. They had been using handheld airbags before sponsons:

"basic, no nonsense...dramatically increase...safety and...capabilities... It should be noted that within the North American civilian sea kayak industry there is some controversy...Sea Wings' direct competition with...the paddle float...the merits of Sea Wings...far outweigh those of the paddlefloat...During the IMKP 1994 we used Sea Wings with all our rescue boats as back-up flotation/stability for awashed kayaks needing assistance pumping out in heavy seas. In addition, IMKP's rescue kayak was fitted with Sea Wings on a permanent basis which allowed us to be far more stable in possible rescue operations...Sea Wings dramatically increase re-entry operations with capsized boats. Indeed, even with heavily loaded boats (those approaching 1000 lbs.) most paddlers can easily re-enter the kayak. However the most notable advantage of Sea Wings is with lightly loaded boats; ie, those kayaks which are far less stable (more tippy) than fully loaded boats. Recovery operations are far more difficult in these boats and most students have extreme difficulty in mastering the necessary techniques. This is compounded in heavy seas. Sea Wings offers an almost guaranteed method of re-entering a lightly loaded kayak even in heavy seas. Stability increase in heavy seas. Paddling in extremely heavy seas is difficult. Sea Wings offer the crews an additional method of dealing with such sea states. One of the most dangerous situations a detachment can find itself in is that of towing a disabled crew with full operational loads in heavy seas at night. The employment of Sea Wings dramatically increases the safety margin. In my opinion, this is one of the sponsons' most important contributions to MAROPS... As an historical footnote it should be noted that circumpolar kayakers (Greenlanders and Inuit) employed a similar sponson/ float for stability. It differed significantly though from Sea Wings in that it was free floating; i.e., there was apparently no harness system and stability came from pushing down on the float on the side of the kayak. In addition, during the late 70's and early 80's we employed a similar system with our commo boats. Waterproof bags were blown up and hand held to the sides of the kayak while communication was conducted. The point here is that the idea of some sort of support on the sides of the kayak for stability is very old and universal."

You are requested to stop sending these emails to the Canadian Coast Guard and the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary. You were advised some weeks ago that the CCG was reviewing your concerns and was also discussing this matter with the USCG. To date there appears to be virtually no support for your proposal in Canada.

This action has resulted in over 450 Canadians dying in agony, with no means to escape the cool waters, according to a Transport Canada publication available on the internet:
"Hypothermia is your worst enemy...Even in July, a dunking in the waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence can lead to total loss of manual dexterity within 5 minutes and death within 15 to 20." (Sea Kayaking Safety Guide, National Library of Canada ISBN 2-89101-179-1, 2003, p.55)"

Not all evidence of the Canadian Sponson Study has been burned or deleted.

The 1994 Transportation Safety Board of Canada Report Number M93W0008 still exists: "2.8 Emergency and Safety Equipment: The side sponsons..were not inflated and installed ahead of time to assist the kayaker to reboard after a possible capsizing or to increase the stability of the kayaks. Consequently, when the kayakers entered an area of rough seas, they had to keep paddling to keep their kayaks upright. Each kayak was equipped with these floats. The secondary use of the sponsons, i.e. to increase the stability of the kayaks, was not foreseen before the kayaks    encountered severe weather."

http://www.tc.gc.ca/publications/EN/TP14726/PDF%5CHR/TP14726E.pdf
This publication plainly states the deadly consequences of having no means to get out of the water, but recommends tothe Canadian public "eskimo rolls" despite Greenland experts in rolling competitions requiring running, ready,  rescue powerboats due to deadly difficulties saving rolling experts  and paddlefloats that are generally condemned as impossible, impossible to pump out through sprayskirts and causing re-capsize. (Sea Kayaker Magazine, February 2003, p.29)

Most of the 450 deaths have occurred in canoes, exceeding Air India as the greatest murder scandal in Canadian history, covered-up by the RCMP, OPP and some politicians; but not MP John Reynolds and Vic Toews. Six (6) young Ontario school children were deliberately killed in Ontario in the past few months.

Any Canadian can see that any canoe (or kayak) is tippy, and any canoe (or kayak) rescue must not involve movement that further de-stabilizes a canoe, resulting in further capsizes and death. But this is what Paddle Canada and the Ontario Recreational Canoeing and Kayaking Association sell as very expensive and fraudulent "safety", murdering over 450 Canadians and well over 150 Canadian school children. The OPP and RCMP refuse to arrest the 5 major perpetrators of this crime against humanity, and the Attorneys General refuse to prosecute these child killers, despite many Ontario canoe instructors willing to testify against this deadly fraud: http://www.sponsonguy.com/Lewis.html

Tim Ingram, 705-549-3722

Further Evidence Available for a Class Action Lawsuit in Canada (Nearly 500 dead victims since 1994) and the U.S. (over 1500 dead victims in canoes and kayaks due to deliberate criminal actions for profit.)

Two cruel myths are perpetuated to sustain these killings: 1. The victims are to blame for not purchasing expensive instruction to enable them to get out of the water (a means to get out of the water that does not in fact exist, except for the young children in the photos, attested to by all major authors like Dowd, Mason  and Hutchinson). 2. Drowning is not an agonizing death, contradicted by waterboarding torture, simulated drowning that has been the favourite torture for centuries.

All of this evidence has been tested in police surveys, judge and criminal court surveys, and paddling instructor surveys, where most paddling experts willingly agree with the paddling authors regarding sponsons and the safety facts, revealing the house of cards for this profitable criminal scam by instructor groups.

This class action lawsuit, revealed in a plain and obvious manner, with the support of many paddling instructors and authors, is guaranteed to succeed, despite the breathtaking cruelty that ordinary society might prefer not to see. Toronto law firms are very well-paid and Facebook easily connects grieving and very angry Canadians. The Paddle Canada/ORCKA Ponzi Plan has made enemies of instructors invested in the cruel and murderous ponzi scheme. They are willing to testify about the murder of Ontario school children to profit about 2 dozen Summer businesses in Ontario.
 
 

Canoe and Kayak Ponzi Scheme

Here is an exchange containing considerable libel and defamation of my character. Notice that the "David" responses are quite reasonable compared to the more vicious people below, who are probably also enamoured of Sarah Palin. (David is unknown to me, but intelligent enough to see that his friends lost their lives due to no foolproof means to get out of the water.) In fact the idea that "no-one should paddle anywhere they could not also swim safely", a sort of "happy conclusion" to their exchange, shows how deadly and deceitful this cult can be, even toward themselves. Even David apparently thinks that he can save himself by swimming to shore; since he apparently thinks that he can swim farther than he can paddle despite the water temperature or any other factors.

I do not waste time speaking to cult members when I have many people, far more reasonable, to speak with.  I have become "an urban myth" to this cult. They certainly don't know me or apparently know anything about what I have written on my website. They apparently will not mention any of thousands of facts on the website.

Of course what David says he can do is irrelevant to public safety; since someone's child might not be able to swim to shore on a school trip, like so many dead school children. No matter how polite I have been to these subjects, their rage toward myself or anyone else interfering with their mission to apparently endanger victims in canoes and kayaks, as exposed below, is immediate. They hate to have their entitlement to human life questioned, like any other criminals. This evidence is freely available to Canadian and American class action legal suits, together with http://www.sponsonguy.com/Lewis.html and http://www.sponsonguy.com/grievingfamilies.html
 

In fact Canadian Police have endorsed these very same vicious and criminal actions toward Canadian school children. See Premier McGuinty's letter. Some politicians do draw the line but are helpless in the face of collegial criminals (like Bentley, Bryant, Fantino or Zaccardelli.)

Today, Dec. 13, 2010 CBC Radio has revealed that about 50% of all persons arrested in Toronto are strip-searched, apparently to intimidate and demean the general public. Many of these victims (thousands in total) are teenage girls. This story has been amplified since the Youtube of Ottawa police similarly demeaning an innocent young woman in Ottawa, with the full approval of the Office of the Attorney General of Ontario!

These vicious acts toward the general public below, effectively killing them in canoes and kayaks, have been endorsed by police departments, apparently to encourage more "respect for authority". It is likely that this twist (repulsive to most police officers who are not, of course, naturally sadistic or psychotic), is responsible for such sick behavior, together with incompetent leadership. Any country in the right conditions is capable of the excesses of Hitler's Germany: Even execution of school children, cloaked as canoe and kayak instruction, to encourage respect for authority. How else can you explain deliberate endangerment of a nation's schoolchildren?!! (See the famous Milgram experiments at Yale.)

In Response To: Georgian Bay Kayaks - The Sponson War Continues (David)

While I don't think sponsons are the miracle of safety that Tim asserts, they are probably a good addition to selection of safety equipment available. I can imagine certain uses where sponsons would be a good thing: such as helping stabilize an incapacitated paddler during a tow.

In Response To: Re: Georgian Bay Kayaks - The Sponson War Continue (Tim Mattson)

snip
but rather than argue, lets have a saftey clinic and see how the different
: techniques stack up against each other.

Tim, no doubt paddle float would win in terms of sheer deployment time, that was never a question for me. The key is that you are more stable after rescue with sponsons. Paddle float cannot give you that. Paddle float might be lost. Sponsons may be deployed prior to capsize to stablize boat, please believe me here, it certainly does, without significant compromise of secondary stability. The rest of the post...right on, really well written, got alot out of reading it. We are a damned safe bunch...THESE DAYS.

Unfortunately, 3 of those 12 annual fatalities were my friends, here's to the memory of Jane Carter and her husband and also to Barry Alwater, all of whom died because of lack of training...those are the names of those I have lost along the way, and part of my reasoning behind triple redundancy backup systems. Jane and hubby died off the gulf islands during failed assisted rescue, no PFD's found on bodies...we smoked hemp together in the 70's, she never made it past the early 80's. Barry was 19 when he drowned kayaking in Nova Scotia. These were unconnected incidents, and they served as my introduction to the sport. On my first paddle in 1979, I capsized twice, we went out like a couple of fools into whitecapped waters. After somehow getting back in the yak the first time, I capsized again and swam to shore with the boat. There I got stuck in the surf for an hour. No biggy, just wet. Hundreds of people still take to the water in a yak without any training each year, maybe its thousands world wide. I just taught a private lesson to a couple from Brazil, they can't find instruction where they live, but yak's are freely available. Our work is only beginning...

I'm not exploiting their names here for a point, God forbid...but Jane Carter and Barry Alwater are real people who never made it back. So I say triple, quadriple, quintuple redundancy. And so does John Dowd, especially for the solo paddler.

Sponsons not a hot item I can see...:)

snip:
Why can't people separate the product from the marketing campaign? .

Okay, out on a limb we go. I would not consider travel without sponsons.

Face it, the paddlefloat rescue is close to worthless in many conditions that demand it, when wind opposes current it is a waste of time. And I don't think that many people practice rolling in a loaded, expedition ready boat; with the same panic that a sudden squall or gale force wind can produce. So most real world rolling experience is lacking and the paddle float is unreliable in all but the most practised hands. So what you have to pre-rig them, it only takes a couple of hours and you leave it there permanently. You pre-rig the rental fleet the same way. What's the big deal, are we really in a hurry?

You can't always stay out of Deep Trouble, Mike and Rikki proved that a few weeks ago. So here I go out on ANOTHER limb: paddling without sponsons in anything but basic flatwater protected conditions, is unadvised. This is not in my instructor's manual, and I am not authorized to teach this, only the Eskimo bow, T and paddle float are on the CRCA basic curriculum. Don't get me started on the stupidity of the Eskimo bow rescue or the idiocy of doing a T with loaded boats in 2 meter waves. I got T rescue stories, punctured boats, second capsizes, broken paddle shafts, ripped spray skirts, face it, it sucks and is a temporary, imperfect solution. Tim has taken it to the next level. Man, are some of you ever close minded!

But as far as reality goes, I am backing Tim on this one. Maybe you haven't been as terrified as I have been on the open water, but they are one of the few things that brought me peace of mind in the PNW. Why would you ignore this technology, first introduced by ancient paddling cultures for the childish reason of being turned off by Tim. You can't even find them in outdoor stores anywhere, and if they do contribute to safety, isn't he getting a bum rap for all the wrong reasons?

Haven't heard one good reason not to yet...

From TIm's site;

"Canoes and kayaks have by far the highest fatality rates per million hours of exposure (.42) as any other boat type. Most of these are due to drowning." US Coast Guard release # 071-01 (May 24, 2001).

From the look of his updated site he is raving as usual. I am a big Tim fan, because of his passion, but aside from Tim, what say ye on sponsons? They don't seem to be catching on, but even John Dowd now thinks they are an improvement over the paddle float. I just put mine back on yesterday, that's how little I use them.

I know we have this in the archives; but each year its nice to bring it up; alot of new lurkers on the board, and that is sponsons. Please don't turn away; I know the very word evokes fear, but; how many of you are using them? Do you think that we should recommend them as a replacement for the paddle float rescue?

Not suggesting everyone needs em' Jed, just that they make alot of sense and I think some people around here are resistant to a new idea, plain and simple, alongside Tim's abrasive manner. I just can't see going on a major trip without em' and wonder why they have been so poorly adopted by paddlers. I agree, good weather is best, but I have hit squalls in the Johnston straight with a clean VHF broadcast, so our calculations of risk are only so effective. But then again, I am talking kayaking travel, rather than day paddles or protected Island hopping.

: Jed's simple rules for survival: Don't paddle if you would not swim in the

: Don't paddle if you cannot self-rescue in the same conditions.

: Once these criteria are met the value of sponsons is sharply reduced."
 
 

Canoe and Kayak Ponzi Scheme

The UK Coast Guard contacted me in 1994, following the Lyme Bay Tragedy that killed 4 sixteen year old students, 2 boys and 2 girls. The instructor could not keep them uncapsized and out of the water after the using the usual fraudulent "rescues". Captain Thompson, Principal Marine Surveyor, having a mutual friend in the famous sea kayak author Derek Hutchinson, who also knew me personally, asked about "sponsons". The British Press went wild and the Instructor was eventually convicted of manslaughter.

On Thanksgiving Day 1997 near Parry Sound, Ontario a young boy in a kayak on a lake could not be rescued by trained camp counsellors who could not get him out of the water; he only re-capsized like the Lyme Bay Tragedy. Coroner James Young refused to reply to letters and faxes that I sent to him. (I notice that the College of Physicians and Surgeons recently required of Dr. Young that he promise never to attempt to renew his licence due to a career of similarly negligent actions.) In 2003, only weeks before the 2 Girl Guides died, I was brushed off by Dr. Porter of the Coroner's Office, then prevented by Dr. Porter and Dr. Legge from testifying at that Inquest, despite the protests by the mother and aunt of the dead victims.

Most citizens understand that no normal persons can reach over the gunwale of their canoe to grab the bow of an overturned canoe, in order to lift the heavy, overturned canoe over the gunwales of the upright canoe, turn it upright and return it to the water; without likely capsizing their own canoe!  The experts report the impossibility of this "rescue", even for very expert paddlers, in their books (Franks 1977, Mason 1988, Raffan 2002, Jacobson 2005). The late Bill Mason, who is famous and revered in Canadian canoeing circles, condemns this; recommending sufficient flotation to create stability  instead. The impossibilty of this "rescue" has led many experts to recommend just getting the victims into uncapsized canoes; however, this usually leads to victims in the water capsizing these canoes too, in an effort to get out of the water to save themselves! This led to 12 dead school children capsizing more canoes, Lake Temiskaming 1978. (Kayak "rescues" similarly only risk the capsize of more kayaks and have no means to prevent re-capsizing in the same conditions, like Lyme Bay and Parry Sound.)

The Canadian Canoe Museum in Peterborough, Ontario features Bill Mason's canoe and films, and displays a 1910 Chestnut canoe with sponsons, but it is far too heavy for modern use; unlike 5 second 50 cent sponsons. However, the 1910 Chestnut allows victims to get out of the water into the fully flooded canoe and paddle immediately to safety, like many canoes rented in public canoe liveries in 1910, and just like the 50 cent sponsons. Any victims in the 1910 Chestnut could rescue other swimmers in the water, bail out most of the water by leaning the canoe to one side, and stay alive for days out of the water, like any Life Raft. Only sponsoned canoes and kayaks have crossed both Atlantic and Pacific Oceans (not recommended for anyone and certainly not school children!) The US Special Forces Military Kayakers, among 12 NATO Military Kayaking Teams in 1994 recommended Sponsons, that are similar to beam floats, that were known and used by some polar groups and large West Coast ocean-going canoes.

Excerpt from letter to Premier:

"Six days ago Joseph Silva, 18, and Brodie Williamson, 18, both of St. Catharines, joined Robert O'Brien of Barrie and Dean Ferro of Cambridge, among the recent 15 dead wearing PFDs and not. (The Lyme Bay, Parry Sound and 12 Temiskaming school children were all wearing PFDs. They die if they do not get out of the water! Obviously wearing PFDs is a very good idea, but not a guarantee of lifesaving!!!) For most of the past decade the OPP has recommended "putting PFDs on in the water", despite being obviously foolish and deadly. PFDs are not one size fits all, requiring victims to swim around and under capsized canoes and kayaks searching for a PFD to fit them. This OPP safety fraud, part of the OPP endorsed canoe and kayak fraud seen at the Halton District School Board and elsewhere, has deliberately killed  115 Ontario citizens since I first warned OPP Schlorff and OPP Smith years ago.

So Dalton, as I have told the new OPP Commissioner http://www.sponsonguy.com/Lewis.html
OPP Fantino and Attorney General Bentley have chosen to commit these Hate Crimes against Ontario school children by endorsing the canoe and kayak fraud of ORCKA and Paddle Canada in Ontario. The 5 major perpetrators at Paddle Canada and ORCKA are as cruel, sadistic and hateful toward children as they are toward the adult victims of their fraud, blaming them all for their own deaths; while making canoes and kayaks as deadly as possible. Their successful prosecution is very easy due to the fact that so many instructors willingly admit that their "rescues" don't work, as supported by the information at the Canadian Canoe Museum. Attorney General Bently and OPP Fantino (now OPP Lewis) need to be aware of every word in this last paragraph. I have an encyclopedic knowledge of canoe and kayak safety and historical government-endorsed fraud scams. I also know the law. Attorney General Bentley is a murderous liar, together with OPP Fantino. I shall happily meet with them, and you; if they want to stop their murderous crimes against Ontario children! Meanwhile I shall send the Justice Ministry this important information..."

Dear Commissioner Lewis:

Re: Criminal Negligence Causing Death: OPP Schlorff, OPP K.C. Smith, OPP Fantino, Hate Crimes Against 2.1 Million Ontario Schoolchildren, Over 100 Ontario Citizens Murdered by OPP Policy

My local newspaper has reported that one of your concerns as the new OPP Commissioner is the large number of drowning deaths in Ontario. Many of these deaths are due to the longstanding fraud endorsed by your Marine Section officer, Sgt. Brad Schlorff, supervised by OPP K.C. Smith and OPP Fantino. Schlorff, Smith and Fantino deliberately lie and trick innocent victims in canoes and kayaks, to force them to die in the water; despite the recommendations at the Canadian Canoe Museum and the most famous names in the canoeing and kayaking community. Of course most of this is common sense as well: Schlorff, Smith and Fantino deliberately denying victims any means to rescue themselves.

In fact, for most of the past decade the OPP has recommended "putting PFDs on in the water", despite being obviously foolish and deadly: PFDs are not one size fits all, requiring victims to swim around and under capsized canoes and kayaks searching for a PFD to fit them. This OPP safety fraud, part of the OPP endorsed canoe and kayak fraud seen at the Halton District School Board  http://www.sponsonguy.com/grievingfamilies.html    has deliberately killed over 100 Ontario citizens since I first warned OPP Schlorff and OPP Smith years ago. Intially OPP Schorff may have been too arrogant and simple-minded to understand that he cannot rescue himself in a canoe or kayak using the fraudulent "rescues". However Schlorff, Smith and Fantino have now proven that they hold no value for human life while insisting that they can rescue themselves in canoes and kayaks using the fraudulent and very expensive instruction at ORCKA and Paddle Canada. They insist that they are superior to the well loved and very dead Ontario citizens whom they have condemned to death. And of course they cannot rescue themselves, even canoe and kayak instructors admit they cannot rescue themselves using these same rescues at Halton District School Board.
We shall keep these well documented OPP crimes confined to canoe rescues instead of kayak rescues for simplicity's sake in your understanding, although kayak rescues are fraudulent as well. There are many more canoe deaths in Ontario. Nearly 30% of deaths are Ontario school children. This is a hateful OPP crime against children and all Ontario citizens.

Any two Ten Year Old Girls are able to rescue themselves without any instruction or practice (they just clip sponsons onto gunwales in an emergency, within 5 seconds, with 50 cent foam sponsons), then paddle a flooded canoe to shore at 2 knots, even standing up, but normally seated on seats. Both sponsons are normally clipped at both gunwales, like the left sponson, permitting self-bailing of most of the water by leaning to one side. In order to permit total flooding for this picture, it was necessary to clip one sponson 6 inces higher than the other, so water could flow over one gunwale. These girls (or any normal ten year old children) can rescue any other victims in the water, even obese or disabled adults, who only need to crawl over a gunwale, and be paddled to shore at about 2 knots. The canoe weighs at least 2,000 lbs., flooded. Simple: Any suitable buoyancy, like 50 cent foam floats that are clipped onto gunwales in 5 seconds by any two 10 year old girls, who easily rescue themselves and anyone else. Very simple, cheap, 50 cents and a foolproof means of saving themselves, like the universal life rings around any waterfront.

This is what officers Schlorff, Smith and Fantino have denied innocent citizens and their children, in favour of  $600 Canoe Instruction weekends that deny victims any means to escape the water, despite the sponsoned canoe and Bill Mason's books at the Canadian Canoe Museum. School children and Ontario families are cheated of their money and their very lives. Recently OPP Fantino stated that simply wearing PFDs would eliminate most deaths; but most dead school children are already wearing PFDs: They die because they can't get out of the water like the Girl Guides and the Temiskaming Twelve. (Ask OPP Fantino why Ontario citizens should pay for a fraudulent $600 canoe instruction weekend if a $20 PFD will suffice!) Also NOTE most victims falling in the water do not drown immediately but struggle on the surface for a while. This is the purpose of  the universal life rings around any waterfront. This is why simple, buoyant 50 cent, 5 second sponsons, like life rings, clipped on in 5 seconds by any ten year old children, is a good idea: foolproof lifesaving. We know that OPP officers consider their lives to be valuable: why not Ontario school children, Commissioner Lewis?

1. The good news is that most OPP officers believe that the 5 major perpetrators, who so easily tricked OPP Schlorff and the others into thinking that they are superior to the public, using fraudulent instruction that is so ridiculously impossible for any normal persons, should be arrested immediately! Prosecution is also very easy due to the fact that so many admit their "rescues" don't work! Just like the Canadian Canoe Museum.

2. No judge or jury in Canada trying these ideas in a swimming pool, let alone reading them described on paper, can be but amazed at the plain and obvious stupidity of the OPP in this fraud. A few officers make money off-duty through this fraud, but most officers are intelligent enough to see this naked criminal fraud.

3. I can help you prosecute these murderers (I know where they "bury their bodies" and how they contradict their explanations to deliberately and very cruelly kill so many innocents for money), to help protect the reputation of the OPP. These murderers essentially blame their victims for their own deaths: something OPP Schlorff, OPP Smith and OPP Fantino have also been doing for a long time, to end up with over 100 dead.

4. The OPP is vulnerable to trickery if the police force chooses to be wilfully blind, then attempts a cover-up for years despite mounting deaths, even of school children. No police force is perfect. Any Christian or decent human being hopes that you will rectify this horrifying OPP policy. Drowning deaths are agonizing, just as simulated drowning has been a popular torture for the Inquisition, the Nazi Gestapo, the Kymer Rouge, and Guantanamo Bay.

5. Thank you Commissioner Lewis for addressing this greatest OPP scandal; worse than Ipperwash. If you ensure that OPP Schlorff, Smith and Fantino admit their past mistakes over fraudulent PFD, canoe and kayak safety instruction, arrest the 5 major perpetrators of this deadly fraud, who have deliberately killed over 100 since OPP Schlorff and OPP Smith dismissed these horrible killings in 2002 (nearly 30 of these dead Ontario citizens being schoolchildren!!), I shall ensure that Attorney General Bentley is held fully accountable for his hate crimes against children among his peers in the legislature.

It was Bentley's choice to kill another 6 children these past few months, in defiance of Premier McGuinty's letter of March 23, 2010, as Robert O'Brien, aged 17 years of Barrie, Ontario died wearing a PFD, like most school children, on April 25, 2010. From Bentley's office April 8, 2010: "The ministry has received numerous messages from you on this subject.  Please be advised that further communications from you on this issue will be kept on file and will not be responded to. Thank you again for writing. Ministry of the Attorney General www.ontario.ca/attorneygeneral" I shall continue to write until Bentley understands his hate crimes against children. Bentley may be desperately trying to protect OPP Schlorff, Smith and Fantino from exposure. Bentley and the OPP may never be forgiven by the grieving families, but at least Commissioner Lewis, you will now be protecting the lives of school children and other citizens from this horrible fraud.

Yours truly,

Note: I have the OPP emails (2006) enabling the American Canoe Association to perpetrate a Ponzi scheme in the U.S., killing at least 100 Americans annually in canoes and kayaks (USCG database). American politicians are not as interested in this ponzi scheme as Canadian politicians, having enough concern with Wall Street schemes.
