Dear Mr. Murray:

No word from you yet. Perhaps by now you are surprised by the information here. Your client Mr. Kozak is not the innocent you referred to: "To suggest he is part of a murderous cult because he has questioned your position with respect to the type of equipment you promote is nothing short of libellous, slanderous and a defamation to his character." And the "murderous cult", Paddle Canada, has, suspiciously, still no means to get victims out of the water where they die; despite the evidence of the 2 ten year old girls in the "Kanawa" article that Paddle Canada refused to publish at least 140 dead Canadians ago. President of Paddle Canada Richard Alexander is suspiciously quiet about all this for 2 months now, since Mr. Kozak told him about my my supposed "libel" of Paddle Canada (and numerous other groups), a Paddle Canada that teaches $650 courses in New Brunswick that leave victims in the water to die, unlike the 2 ten year old girls out in 5 seconds.

Mr. Kozak has far more than "questioned", indeed, you probably did not know he has been absolutely relentless in libelling, defaming and slandering me, my website, my business, my reputation, disparaging my sponsons (even suggesting I was getting rich from them), defamation in all possible ways: "I disagree 100% with you about the whole notion of “sponsons”, "You’re (sic) book is full of logical fallacies.  You state that the term “safety equipment” should only to (sic) “failsafe” things like, seatbelts, helmets, airbags…. However…. These are not 100% effective!!!!!!!", "A panel for an ethical review of your business is in the works. You cannot promote your products in this manner.", "SPONSONS SUCK SHIT BUDDY!!!!!!!!!!! Only proves that you don't kow how to paddle! SUCKA!", "Tampon,  I hate to break it to you, but anyone I’ve shown our correspondence or your website to, sees you as a joke. Is that what you want to be buddy?  A JOKE!?!?", "Keep on your quest to make humans invincible and life risk free.  That'll be a fun world...NOT! ", " I’d actually agree with much of what you have to say, yet you choose to be so blind and dumb to reality.", "YOU ARE A MURDERER and a PEDOPHILE!!!!!!!"

For your information Mr. Murray, for our Canadian laws and for our respect for human life, I shall list several considerations regarding Mr. Kozak:

1. His behavior shows an absolutely implacable and unrelenting attitude in his defamation of me, and disparagement of sponsons: "A panel for an ethical review of your business is in the works. You cannot promote your products in this manner.", "SPONSONS SUCK SHIT BUDDY!!!!!!!!!!! Only proves that you don't kow how to paddle! SUCKA!". I do not believe that Mr. Kozak will soon relent from his libellous attacks and slander against me. And he operates within a group that we know now is within Paddle Canada (I found this out only 1 week ago.) His name on this website is the only means to keep him from damaging my reputation further, impugning my intentions to save lives further and denigrating further my product, sponsons. I see no choice but to keep the full truth of his libellous statements and his references to his slanderous statements to others about me, here on the internet, to try to protect what is left of my reputation and defend myself legally, in view of his libellous accusations spread to Paddle Canada, Justice Canada, and who knows who else. And try to repair the considerable damage he has caused toward my reputation and product. : "Tampon,  I hate to break it to you, but anyone I’ve shown our correspondence or your website to, sees you as a joke. Is that what you want to be buddy?  A JOKE!?!?".

As I have said below, I tried to withold his name, attempting to reason with him about these precious lives, and he did improve: "I’d actually agree with much of what you have to say, yet you choose to be so blind and dumb to reality." Unfortunately he then committed criminal libel (CCC300, libel known to be false) by reporting me to Paddle Canada and Justice Canada  "...False or misleading representations 52. (1) No person shall, for the purpose of promoting, directly or indirectly, the supply or use of a product or for the purpose of promoting, directly or indirectly, any business interest, by any means whatever, knowingly or recklessly make a representation to the public that is false or misleading in a material respect. I hope to avoid having the police and/or courts involved. I have reported you to the Advertising Standards of Canada....Rylan Kozak" .

April 8, 2008

Dear President of Paddle Canada:

Re: Paddle Canada School Board Scam Endangers Thousands of Schoolchildren, Killing Many Students.

Someone by the name of Rylan Kozak sent you a libellous email regarding myself about 2 days ago. Mr. Kozak, whom I name as "Nylon" since I have no idea of his true identity or a group he describes as "panel for ethical review" of my business. He states that he is an instructor and expert paddler who "saves lives" while paddling around.

Paddle Canada's "Kanawa" magazine intended to publish an article on the CO2 sponsons that enable any 2 ten year old kids to rescue themselves within 5 seconds, plus rescue others in the water, without any expensive, and very complicated instruction; that Nylon above admits cannot rescue him! Of course Mr. President of Paddle Canada, you cannot rescue yourself either, as you know, just like Nylon...

2. Mr. Kozak's Paddle Canada group has a sense of entitlement to deliberately kill Canadians, leaving them to die in the water for profit at the $650 course near Brown's Flat, New Brunswick this 20th of June: ""Keep on your quest to make humans invincible and life risk free.  That'll be a fun world...NOT! ". While Mr. Kozak may believe that he is a hero for defending Paddle Canada's murderous instruction scheme, accounting perhaps for his particularly vicious behavior toward myself, not to mention the adult and child victims; he is a serious legal liability to Paddle Canada, who cannot defend their murderous instruction scheme. No-one in Canada, and certainly no judge or jury member in Canada can get out of the water with Paddle Canada's instruction scheme, even in a swimming pool. So they know they would die. Then for contrast, you have 2 ten year old girls who can get out of the water in 5 seconds and rescue large adults and paddle them to shore in wind and waves, with no instruction. And then there is Paddle Canada's missing explanation why the "Kanawa" article was not published, despite all of the famous authors, including Paddle Canada's own Bill Mason who needed "extra flotation" like Nylon..

Paddle Canada's "Kanawa" magazine's editor wanted to publish these 2 ten year old girl sponsons:

    Thanks Everyone:
(Snip)
And (using a very modest 20 annual dead figure), at least 140 Canadians died in canoes and kayaks; because they could not get out of the water in 5 seconds like 10 year old girls.
Paddle Canada's Richard Alexander was not forthcoming about Nylon's true identity. The last thing Paddle Canada wants is legal public scrutiny of their fraudulent instruction scheme.

3. Unfortunately it is impossible to remove Mr. Kozak's name here now, not just because now he will most likely continue to libel, defame and slander me among his cult friends and to whomever, as he sees fit. Mr. Kozak's name is very important in the legal case to force Paddle Canada to stop murdering Canadians and their children; and adopt an honest and safe educational program (there is no limit to exciting and creative alternatives to leaving victims in the water to die.) Mr. Kozak is a Paddle Canada instructor and there are many just like him. Mr. Kozak has admitted that he can't paddle a flooded canoe without "extra flotation", like all other instructors; an instruction scam that has alone killed hundreds. Don't forget that there are many Paddle Canada people who want safety too. And don't forget that Mr. Kozak now almost wants this too: "I’d actually agree with much of what you have to say, yet you choose to be so blind and dumb to reality." I believe Mr. Kozak has very good qualities. He just must be stopped from libelling, slandering, and defaming me at the moment, until the murderous instruction scheme at Paddle Canada is changed. I predict that Mr. Kozak will cease trying to defame me when he sees that I am no threat to his income from Paddle Canada. I suspect that is the most likely reason for his behavior: he feels threatened. We all can relate to that feeling as human beings. I think Mr. Kozak along with other instructors has been an unfortunate victim of dishonest training and indoctrination practices at Paddle Canada. I think he is basically a decent and kind person at heart. He probably does not realize how serious his defamation of me has been.

In a sense, Mr. Kozak's defamation of me and disparagement of sponsons is merely what Paddle Canada has done very quietly since 1993, leaving 350 Canadian adults and children to die in the water, taking millions of dollars in a murderous fraud. And Mr. Alexander at Paddle Canada is still very quiet about my complaints about his "murderous instructional scheme" after 2 months. Does he hope Mr. Kozak and Mr. Murray, Barrister and Solicitor of Fredericton can make Paddle Canada's "murderous instructional scheme" go away?

I have spoken to enough people who have lost their kids in canoes and kayaks. Let's prevent these deaths now, as easy as 2 ten year old girls.  Let us try to be as positive toward one another as possible. Read the letters below carefully. Sponsons will help Paddle Canada. Paddle Canada can be easily changed and will profit everyone with a creative and truly safe program. (That requires a failsafe means to exit the water in 5 seconds.)

It is the executive at Paddle Canada who prevented the "Kanawa" article so Canadians could not get out of the water in 5 seconds, like the little girls. Paddle Canada is the organization that deliberately endangered and killed hundreds of innocent Canadians, preventing them from having 5 second inexpensive sponsons. Paddle Canada has tricked Rylan Kozak and his fellow instructors into this murderous scheme. Paddle Canada has denigrated sponsons despite all expert opinion, to deliberately defraud the public and kill them.

Paddle Canada is here formally served with notice of libel regarding myself: ignoring my sponsons and their lifesaving capabilities to such an extreme extent, despite much expert evidence testifying to the value of sponsons, to suggest that there is something seriously "wrong" with sponsons, myself, my reputation and my product, whereas in fact no Paddle Canada instructor nor anyone else can paddle a flooded canoe without "extra flotation", extra strategic flotation being the core of the sponson invention; constituting false disparagement of sponsons and false disregard of my person, completely ignoring the lifesaving contributions of my invention and myself since 1993, and causing severe economic and emotional damages to myself and the victims in canoes and kayaks.

Paddle Canada has deliberately deprived at least 350 Canadians since 1993 of the "extra flotation" needed to escape the deadly waters, taking millions of dollars in a murderous fraud, sometimes in the form of taxpayer dollars given directly to a member organization of Paddle Canada, by the Trillium Foundation in Ontario for example:

4. Here is a thought for you Mr. Murray. Who is really defaming, libelling, slandering me, to the highest degree possible and disparaging my sponsons the most (when sponsons are the only means to save lives, guaranteed to get 2 ten year old girls out of the water in 5 seconds, wind and waves, plus save other victims in the water who only need to crawl over the low gunwale; and then they are all paddled to shore at a steady rate by 2 ten year olds with no instruction.) Paddle Canada does not print nasty things about me that I have seen, nor does Paddle Canada print that John Dowd, Derek Hutchinson, the US Military Special Forces, The Coast Guard SAR group with their sponsoned rescue kayaks in Newfoundland, a dozen other authors, and their own editors at "Kanawa" are wrong. Paddle Canada simply is quiet, leaving Mr. Kozak to get excited, about a Paddle Canada instructional scheme that has no means to get victims out of the water in 5 seconds, unlike 2 ten year old girls would could do this over 140 dead Canadians ago. Interesting isn't it? Mr. Kozak thinks I make money on sponsons when Paddle Canada has refused to acknowledge either myself or sponsons since 1993, the "Kanawa" article was not published despite all of the famous authors, including Paddle Canada's own Bill Mason who needed "extra flotation" like Nylon. Think about this Mr. Murray. Any judge or jury will be thinking about this, and Rene Arseneault and the hundreds of other dead. Few modern crimes are so obvious and reprehensible.

Rene Arseneault and the others did not just "pass away", they died agonizing deaths. Drowning is an agonizing death. The most popular torture at Guantanamo is "waterboarding" a simulated drowning. It was the favourite of the Nazi Gestapo, The Kymer Rouge, and even the Spanish Inquisition. Paddle Canada leaving victims in the water to die was a terrifying and agonizing death. Canadian families deserve Justice!

Barrister and Solicitor

Dear Mr. Murray:

I fear that you are not yet interested in Justice for the Arseneault family (or the families of the hundreds of other dead victims) since I have not heard from your office yet. New Brunswick is a Province in Canada where lives lost at sea are serious matters. In New Brunswick a criminal fraud that deliberately leaves victims to die in the water is a very serious crime, like Rene Arseneault, or the 2 Girl Guides, or 2 weeks ago in a small lake in suburban Toronto 2 young men, Alon Kulik and Daniel Montazernezam, also left to die in the water. It is almost ridiculously easy for any 2 ten year old girls without any instruction to save themselves in 5 seconds, and anyone else in the water.

This is not rocket science. Canoes and kayaks with sponsons have crossed both the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans (not that I recommend this.) In Newfoundland a SAR group uses 10 foot long plastic kayaks with sponsons to pluck victims from rocky surf near cliffs that prevent helicopters and rescue swimmers from operating. The SAR personnel simply paddle the sponsoned kayaks into the surf, clip the victims to the fore and aft decks and paddle back to the big, high-powered Coast Guard rigid inflatable boat. This is very simple, safe and inexpensive. Sponsons, the name for specific beam buoyancy, transform the most primitive watercraft in the world, canoes and kayaks, into the fastest form of active life raft (the most modern concept evolved from life raft technology.)

Notice that Paddle Canada never complains that I call them murderers? In fact, in the past 20 years since my first sponson patent, Paddle Canada has murdered well over 400 Canadians in canoes and kayaks. This is larger than Air India, the largest mass murder in Canadian history. The reason Paddle Canada does not try to take me to court is the fact that I have documented the truth of these facts, for 20 years.

Paddle Canada's rescues, first defended then admitted by Mr. Kozak to be unworkable, are of course impossible: "Seeing as I have, on numerous occasions, (without sponsons) paddled a swamped canoe across a small lake, let alone across and/through class II rapids on the Kanaskis River - It's tough to do, but I am clearly not lying. Mind you that there were inflated float-bags at the bow and stern of the canoe, when on the river these are essential." The "extra flotation" required by Mr. Kozak was also stated as necessary by the late Bill Mason of  The Candian Recreational Canoe Association (recently re-named Paddle Canada.)  The problem of this silly "rescue" is obvious to anyone: a flooded canoe or kayak will only roll over again, the thin wooden gunwales having insufficient buoyancy to resist re-capsize; but this fraudulent rescue is now taught by most Canadian school boards and has killed hundreds. A judge and jury in a swimming pool will find Paddle Canada's instructional scheme to be so extremely misleading as to prove a deliberate scheme to take human lives for money. Picture a judge, a jury, or any Canadian citizen trying to rescue themselves in a swimming pool with Paddle Canada's instructional scheme.

This is why Paddle Canada does not contest my charges that they are murderers!

Another very tragic consequence is that young and confused young men like Mr. Kozak actually commit crimes such as criminal libel CCC 300. Punishment of libel known to be false, (knowing that he was lying when he stated to Justice Canada) that I, " for the purpose of promoting, directly or indirectly, the supply or use of a product or for the purpose of promoting, directly or indirectly, any business interest, by any means whatever, knowingly or recklessly make a representation to the public that is false or misleading in a material respect." He knew he was lying because he had read my email regarding the US Military Sponson Study: "3. You continually appear to "not understand" the pictures of the 2 ten year old girls ...; although this is plain enough to SAR groups, police, US Military Special Forces Kayakers (10th Airbourne, Fort Devens MA, plus 10 other commando kayaking groups from about a dozen NATO countries, 1994).
"US Military Special Forces, 10th Airbourne, Fort Devens, MA, 200 mile ocean kayak race, the coast of Maine, between Military Kayaking Teams from about 12 NATO countries:
"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." Invitational Military Kayak Paddle 1994 Evaluation "

Until Mr. Kozak made the libellous statements to Justice Canada and Paddle Canada, thereby indicating his very serious intent to harm and defame me, and denigrate my product, I witheld his name from the website, hoping that he would see finally the serious issue of deliberately endangering human lives with bogus instruction (rescues that he finally acknowledged did not work), and referred to him as "Nylon".

Mr. Kozak made many other libelous and threatening statements: "I disagree 100% with you about the whole notion of “sponsons”, "You’re (sic) book is full of logical fallacies.  You state that the term “safety equipment” should only to (sic) “failsafe” things like, seatbelts, helmets, airbags…. However…. These are not 100% effective!!!!!!!", "A panel for an ethical review of your business is in the works. You cannot promote your products in this manner.", "SPONSONS SUCK SHIT BUDDY!!!!!!!!!!! Only proves that you don't kow how to paddle! SUCKA!", "Tampon,  I hate to break it to you, but anyone I’ve shown our correspondence or your website to, sees you as a joke. Is that what you want to be buddy?  A JOKE!?!?", "Keep on your quest to make humans invincible and life risk free.  That'll be a fun world...NOT! ", " I’d actually agree with much of what you have to say, yet you choose to be so blind and dumb to reality.", "YOU ARE A MURDERER and a PEDOPHILE!!!!!!!"

I believe that Mr. Kozak probably behaved in this way primarily because he thought that Paddle Canada had granted him these powers of entitlement to human life: " Keep on your quest to make humans invincible and life risk free.  That'll be a fun world...NOT!, and "You state that the term “safety equipment” should only to (sic) “failsafe” things like, seatbelts, helmets, airbags…. However…. These are not 100% effective!!!!!!!" And he seemed to think that I was the "enemy". Paddle Canada has caused more harm to Canadians, their children, their schools, and the very fabric of Canadian society, that I cannot think of any more dishonest, despicable and dangerous organization in the history of Canada.

In the UK an instructor was convicted of Manslaughter in the deaths of 4 school children on Lyme Bay in 1994. Of course any canoe or kayak so far from shore that one cannot simply walk out of the water upon capsize is a potential death trap. The race killing Rene Arseneault required multiple rescue boats following all kayaks to ensure that victims were immediately rescued when they needed rescue. Paddle Canada stopped the article intended for publication in their own "Kanawa" magazine over a year before, ensuring that no canoe or kayaks had any means of self-rescue, like any 2 ten year old girls with sponsons. You will note the editors at "Kanawa" who were dedicated to real safety, like Bill Mason and a few others at Paddle Canada.

After Lyme Bay (and to avoid further attention from the British Press that tore into this terribly tragic story for weeks and ensured the Manslaughter conviction), the famous author Derek Huthchinson wrote: "The Paddlefloat is not really a rough water rescue. During trials I found the SEA WING (sponsons) ... very comforting. I paddled out to sea in rough, windy conditions...I was able to sit on my rear deck-not something I would normally do at sea...The rescue potential is obvious." (Derek Hutchinson, The Complete Book of Sea Kayaking, 1994, pp.104-111) Capt. D.C.S. Thompson, Principal Marine Surveyor, UK Coast Guard (re-named MSA under Margaret Thatcher), contacted me after this tragedy, following the huge media coverage in the UK. Capt. Thompson told me that he was acting on the recommendation of Mr. Derek Hutchinson that sponsons were necessary to prevent the continuing re-capsize of the students' kayaks, after the guides got them back in. Capt. Thompson mentioned that some UK experts complained that sponsons increased the "righting lever" of kayaks so much that kayaks with sponsons were in fact less stable in waves. (The US Military Kayakers did not complain of this! In fact their evaluation stated the obvious: Sponsons make kayaks much more stable in heavy seas or in surf landings when kayaks are more in danger of broaching and capsizing in large, breaking waves.) There is some "expert" propaganda about narrower canoes and kayaks being more stable in waves. This is not supported by either science or commonsense.

The famous author John Dowd, in his book "Sea Kayaking", 1986, p.227 states: "I was once with a group of Outward Bound boys...fourteen boys, 16 to 19 years old...a savage squall capsized nine of them in one blast... any form of group rescue using the techniques...was out of the question. There were two instructors with the group and myself and another instructor in a 24 foot jet rescue boat, watching through binoculars from a distance of half a mile. we picked up...in less than twenty minutes. Without the rescue boat, we would have needed a 1:1 staff to pupil ratio...and even then the result would have been in doubt." With the invention of sponsons in 1987, John Dowd stated: "The great advantage of the Sea Wing (sponsons) is that it leaves the paddler in a more stable position than before capsize." (Sea Kayaking, 1997, pp.90-95) In "Deep Trouble", 1997, sponsons are mentioned for emergency stability on pages 140, 153, and 182. These sponsons or "airbags" can be different shapes and CO2 inflated for immediate rescue from deadly waters in a few seconds, without any instruction or practice, on any kind of canoe or kayak. These sponsons or airbags can be rugged enough to be "almost bulletproof", like modern liferafts, yet fit into tiny containers molded to the sides of any canoe or kayak. They are an obvious means to save lives. Otherwise victims in the water will soon die, even in 70 degree Fahrenheit waters, where body heat is lost at a rate 25 times the rate of heat loss in air.

In spite of this support I have never made any money from sponsons in 20 years; instead my accounts have shown a steady loss. This is testimony to the effectiveness of deadly propaganda from Paddle Canada and other groups who make money from dead children and adults, destroying the lives of tens of thousands of survivors. These lobby groups have penetrated Ottawa where MP John Reynolds, before retiring, forwarded this information to MP Harper and MP Toews. After the election PM Harper and AG Toews have forgotten. Only MP Joe Clark before his retirement tried to help this cause. (The famous Milgram psychology experiments at Yale and the Stanford prison experiment shed much light on motivation in this story. But let's keep this short now.) The Police and Attorney General through a Crown Attorney in New Brunswick must charge Paddle Canada now. There is certainly enough evidence for conviction: A judge and jury in a swimming pool will find Paddle Canada's instructional scheme to be so extremely misleading as to prove a deliberate scheme to take human lives for money. Picture a judge, a jury, or any Canadian citizen trying to rescue themselves in a swimming pool with Paddle Canada's instructional scheme. For most judges and juries these words in print may be quite enough, and Paddle Canada may not wish to incur further wrath from the court by encouraging any in-water demonstations of how they have killed hundreds, even innocent Canadian children.
 

I recommend to the people of New Brunswick to speak to your newspapers and Police. If you know the Arseneault Family, help them but be aware that they are in mourning and they have had very poor experiences with finding Justice in the past. Perhaps a trusted local police officer or clergy could help. Demand criminal charges against Paddle Canada. These needless and easily preventable deaths must be stopped. Paddle Canada now has access (just as it did for 20 years), to the sponson patents, to become far more profitable by truly embracing an honest business plan with the safety of all Canadians truly at heart.

In order to save these lives the New Brunswick Press must be heavily involved, as in the UK above, and the grieving families of victims of Paddle Canada's murderous fraud scheme, must be helped and supported in their grief to complain to the Police, their Members of Parliament, the Premier, the Attorney General and Crown Attorney. Few modern crimes are so obvious and reprehensible.

It may seem ironic, but sponson technology can easily and inexpensively transform these most deadly watercraft into state-of-the-art rescue craft, that the Military and some SAR groups already have been using for years. This makes canoes and kayaks a much more attractive recreational option than they have ever been before. The terrible irony is that Paddle Canada can easily prosper, not be reduced to committing murder.

Dear Mr. Murray:

I have received no reply from you regarding the blatant Canoe and Kayak Fraud in New Brunswick that is about to kill at least 20 Canadians (sometimes this number is over 30) across Canada. Obviously you know that victims unable to get of of the water immediately die, in New Brunswick or in Ontario, where 2 Girl Guides died agonizingly, thinking of their loved ones and leaving many others scarred emotionally for life. You can control this by contacting the RCMP and the police in Rothesay who are able to charge Paddle Canada with appropriate criminal charges. A nation-wide alert can be sent, to try to save lives this Summer.

Your client has revealed an irrational and profit-based scheme for dead bodies under Paddle Canada. You will note below that Paddle Canada has the option of making "safety" and innumerable other educational programs for profit: "Please note that I will happily sell you the Canadian CO2 sponson patent for a modest amount, to cover my costs of development over 20 years. I have no interest in making a profit. I wanted to save the lives of nearly 3000 dead people in the U.S. and Canada,  in canoes and kayaks, during this time. I am content to save those remaining. See the major patent:" http://www.freepatentsonline.com/6343562.html

There are many areas of educational and "safety" development for Paddle Canada, instead of the fraudulent 'leave them to die in the water instruction": camping skills, weather-reading, astronomy, nature studies, ecology, natural philosophy; there is no limit to the educational programs possible. But the lies and deliberate intention to kill victims like Rene Arseneault for profit is criminal: Rene could have easily gotten out of the water (there was at least one crossing of the Bay of Fundy with my earlier sponsons as back-up in the 1990's, as I have the correspondence regarding the safety considerations, and the Fundy Press followed these exploits, that I do not recommend, but regard as inevitable as human nature.)

I understand that you may be busy. But please Mr. Murray use your opportunity now to save lives. I believe that your client, Mr. Kozak may be more like a confused young man, with a sense of entitlement to human life given to him by Paddle Canada. His emails reveal a somewhat confused personal profile in this respect. The modest cost of Paddle Canada's sponson patent above (plus the patent to the U.S. market) would ensure a secure and ethical income for Mr. Kozak and all Canadian canoe and kayak instructors.

Please respond immediately,

Yours truly,

Dear Mr. Murray:

Your client Mr. Kozak has continually threatened, libelled and slandered me for the past 3 months. In view of his apparently very high degree of intent to hurt me, my family, my integrity, impugn my intentions to save lives and denigrate my product, sponsons; I see no choice but to keep the truth of his libellous statements and his references to his slanderous statements to others about me, on the internet, to try to protect what is left of my reputation. And try to correct the considerable damage he has caused toward my reputation and product. You will note that I do not wish primarily to profit from this lifesaving invention. I have saved lives. See the books and studies written about me below. There are many more.

Mr. Kozak is deliberately denying citizens, even children any means to escape deadly waters; although he would apparently state he is "safety conscious", despite having no means to get out of the water himself, below. His behavior is a truly remarkable performance to keep canoes and kayaks as dangerous as possible. And he is not alone; he operates within a group that can only be described as an irrational and murderous cult.

Please read this letter to Paddle Canada, see the pictures, and note the pictures in the piece that the editors intended to publish in "Kanawa" about 200 deaths ago. As I pointed out in "Kanawa" some canoe instructors do not realize that they are seriously impairing their livelihood by making canoes and kayaks so complicated and unsafe; requiring much practice and expensive instruction that still does not work to provide a sense of safety to customers. Sponsons allow even young children without instruction to save themselves and others in 5 seconds. Canadians can have real safety inexpensively, and spend their time enjoying paddling, instead of paying for fraudulent, "no practice is ever enough", bogus instruction schemes. A poor way to popularize canoeing and kayaking, to say nothing of deadly.

Remember Rene Arseneault 22, of Rothesay, N.B., who died in a kayak race June 1, 2002. The family filed a statement of claim in the Court of Queen's Bench, not knowing that his kayak had no means of self rescue either, in order to sell fraudulent safety instruction (unlike the 2, ten year old girls below who could have gotten out in 5 seconds with sponsons). The Paddle Canada/Canoe/Kayak New Brunswick course this June 20-22 and 27-30 at Caton's Island Camp near Brown's Flat, New Brunswick, costs the public $650 and still leaves them in the water to die! The sponsons enabling rescue of 2 ten year old girls within 5 seconds (enabling them to immediately rescue large adult victims in the water too, with no expensive instruction), cost a small fraction of this fraudulent $650 course; representative of other Paddle Canada courses that left Rene Arseneault to die a slow and agonizing death on June 1, 2002, together with about 200 other Canadians, including many Canadian children.

Mr. Murray, in view of this blatant and deadly fraud in New Brunswick, please contact the Arseneault family in Rothesay and the Police. I understand that the Police originally wanted to press criminal charges in the tragic death of Rene Arseneault, but for some reason the Crown Attorney refused to allow criminal charges. This Paddle Canada scam has existed long before the "Kanawa" article and pictures below, long before Rene Arseneault died. As a member of the Bar in New Brunswick, Canadians ask you to seek justice for these easily preventable deaths.

Several canoe deaths have already occurred in Ontario in the past 2 weekends. This is a large Canadian tragedy. Deadly canoe and kayak courses are common in most school boards across Canada. The potential for more tragic death is not small!

It is your duty to warn, as a lawyer and a citizen Mr. Murray; just as it is my duty and the duty of all Canadian citizens to save these easily saved victims, as easily as the 2 ten year old girls in the pictures.

Yours truly,

Hi Richard:

I have discovered today June 1, 2008 on Google that Rylan Kozak of Fredericton, New Brunswick is a Lakewater Canoe Instructor Level 1 and a member of Canoe Kayak New Brunswick (a member organization and affiliate of Paddle Canada). Previously, you seemed reluctant to admit that Rylan Kozak had any connection to Paddle Canada. Mr. Kozak's criminal behavior is Paddle Canada's criminal behavior.

I continue to receive threatening and libellous communication from Rylan Kozak who first began this harrassment 3 months ago: "I disagree 100% with you about the whole notion of “sponsons”, "You’re (sic) book is full of logical fallacies.  You state that the term “safety equipment” should only to (sic) “failsafe” things like, seatbelts, helmets, airbags…. However…. These are not 100% effective!!!!!!!", "A panel for an ethical review of your business is in the works.

Mind you that there were inflated float-bags at the bow and stern of the canoe, when on the river these are essential.", "SPONSONS SUCK SHIT BUDDY!!!!!!!!!!!

", " I’d actually agree with much of what you have to say, yet you choose to be so blind and dumb to reality.", "YOU ARE A MURDERER and a PEDOPHILE!!!!!!!", and finally Rylan Kozak sent to you at Paddle Canada, and Justice Canada the following email that plainly commits libel against my person, defaming my character and integrity in saving lives, as well as egregious lies about my product, sponsons:

Subject: Tim Ingram is commiting Libel against Paddle Canada, ORCKA, OPP and other groups.

"...False or misleading representations
52. (1) No person shall, for the purpose of promoting, directly or indirectly, the supply or use of a product or for the purpose of promoting, directly or indirectly, any business interest, by any means whatever, knowingly or recklessly make a representation to the public that is false or misleading in a material respect. Proof of deception not required (1.1) For greater certainty, in establishing that subsection (1) was contravened, it is not necessary to prove that any person was deceived or misled...I hope to avoid having the police and/or courts involved. I have reported you to the Advertising Standards of Canada....Rylan Kozak"

This is a plainly libellous statement: "make a representation to the public that is false or misleading in a material respect", regarding my intent to save lives with this product, with no intent to reap any large profit, apart from development expenses. Plainly I was also libelled with respect to the Subject Heading of the email sent to you at Paddle Canada and Justice Canada by Mr. Kozak. Paddle Canada has not contested my description of their instructional scheme, nor any other group, including the OPP. Paddle Canada's instructional scheme is based on trickery and deceit, which is the definition of "fraudulent". Both Paddle Canada's famous and revered canoeist Bill Mason and the canoe instructor Nylon (Rylan Kozak) have stated (Nylon in the email above and Bill Mason in his last book), that they are not able to get out of the water without "extra flotation". If you are not able to get out of the water you die. In Canada the waters are cold enough to induce hypothermia in minutes, even in Summer. Paddle Canada's instructional scheme provides no means to get out of the water, as proven by both Bill Mason, over 20 years ago, and Nylon, who repeatedly indicates some affiliation with Paddle Canada in his emails to me.

Paddle Canada's instructional scheme provides no means for the public to escape certain death in the water! You will note that Nylon first states he can "paddle a
flooded canoe to shore", then admits that he cannot, without "extra flotation" and even then it is "tough."  The "extra flotation" is best provided by the patented sponsons that add about a pound of weight within a tiny container within a canoe gunwale and inflate in seconds by means of a CO2 cartridge, similar to an inflatable PFD but having the option of much stronger construction:

Paddle Canada's instructional scheme deliberately kills over 20 Canadians annually by providing no means to escape the water! This is a pyramid scheme, similar to a bait and switch fraud, in which the means to save a life is always in the "next course" using another "rescue" that requires more time and money, but in fact does not
exist. Bill Mason condemned the "canoe over canoe rescue" that capsizes rescuing canoes. It is also condemned by other authors. Bill Mason could not "paddle a
flooded canoe to shore" without the "extra flotation".  This rescue scam is almost laughable, as if the wooden gunwales of a canoe, less than 2 inches in diameter have enough buoyancy, like Sponsons, to stabilize a flooded canoe! Nylon mentions other rescues that he apparently has not tried: The Capistrano Flip requires victims in deep water to swim under a canoe and throw it into the air! These ideas are of course impossible. This would be obvious to anyone with a high school education, but a judge and jury in a swimming pool will find Paddle Canada's instructional scheme to be so extremely misleading as to prove a deliberate scheme to take human lives for money. Picture a judge, a jury, or any Canadian citizen trying to rescue themselves in a swimming pool with Paddle Canada's instructional scheme.

Many instructors within Paddle Canada operate as a cult, with contempt for human life and their victims, in the face of sponsons that enable even 10 year old children without instruction to rescue themselves and others within 5 seconds. They sell the most dangerous canoes and kayaks possible, without any failsafe means like a life raft or car seat belts for example, to escape certain death: "You’re (sic) book is full of logical fallacies.  You state that the term “safety equipment” should only to (sic) “failsafe” things like, seatbelts, helmets, airbags…. However…. These are not 100% effective!!!!!!!"

Nylon repeatedly indicates some affiliation with Paddle Canada in his emails, including a "panel for the ethical review" of my business. He has revealed one of these email addresses to Paddle Canada and Justice Canada already: kodiak_mark@hotmail.com, matty_g46@hotmail.com, brendananderson100@hotmail, krystil_k@hotmail.com  I suspect that at least one of these contacts will be affiliated with Paddle Canada. I have encountered many instructors over the years from the Canadian Recreational Canoe Association (now Paddle Canada) and provincial affiliates who operate as a deadly and deliberately cruel cult toward innocent citizens and their children. It is well known to police that any group of citizens denied protection soon become prey to others. This is the nature of criminal tendencies within the normal Canadian population. Some people will commit crimes, even cruel murders of children if they think there are no consequences.

It is a matter of record that they have killed many students across Canada by tricking school boards like the Halton District School Board. The editors of Paddle Canada's  "Kanawa" below, ethical and truly interested in safety, appear to be in the minority at Paddle Canada, like the late Bill Mason... Read the rest at http://www.sponsonguy.com/paddlecanada.html

My Original Response to Nylon After He Had Sent These Libellous References Regarding Myself, intended to defame my person to Paddle Canada, Justice Canada, as well as making numerous slanderous references about me to others, as indicated in his emails to me, including "a panel for the ethical review of your business is in the works":

Nylon:

You apparently are implicating Paddle Canada, and one member of your cult, whoever you are. You apparently want to subject yourself, Paddle Canada, the OPP, RCMP, and other groups to a verification of your lies posted here. You have recently admitted below: "I’d actually agree with much of what you have to say, yet you choose to be so blind and dumb to reality."

As I continued: "You finally admit sponsons work after so many pictures of 2 ten year old girls. But you continue to deny endangering Children in Canadian School Boards with Your Lies. You and your now-not-so-jolly  cult of murderers (Murder is quite simply the deliberate endangering of human life resulting in death), are now realizing that your large numbers do not protect you from punishment, like the large Cornwall Pedophile Ring. Your lies within the Halton District School Board alone, from "paddling a flooded canoe" to "putting a PFD on in the water", and the other lies that you acknowledge, after initial protests below, are there in hard print. Canadian High School teachers who have seen this evidence are outraged! These lies put Outdoor Education Programs in jeopardy when Canadian Citizens see that Canadian Schools have adopted such Deadly Instruction: Lies actually killing schoolchildren like the Girl Guides (scarring the Girl Guide survivors for life.) "

You are behaving similarly to pedophiles who retain a sense of entitlement to do what they want, no matter the reality of the children, their parents or society. You seem to want to continue the deadly "put-a-PFD-on-in-the-water" scam at Halton District School Board to endanger students there. You want to continue the "paddle-a-flooded-canoe-to-shore" scam and your other deadly "rescue" and "safety" instruction scams that have killed many students in other Canadian school boards over the years, leaving them to die in cold waters.

Most parents in Canada would not risk the lives of their children to put a PFD on in the water due to the obvious problems that you have noticed below, in your own words. Most citizens can read your words below that you cannot actually "paddle-a-flooded-canoe"; unless you use extra flotation, and even then it is "tough". (Sponsons employ buoyancy at the beam ends of canoe and kayaks. Only canoes and kayaks with sponsons have crossed both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans in relative safety, considering the obvious risks of such crossings.)  This is why my 4 sponson patents are on file within the Patent Offices in Washington, D.C. and Ottawa, Canada. Sponsons are not "false or misleading in any respect".

Most parents do not wish their children to be endangered by your cult at the Halton District School Board or any other school board in Canada. Halton District School Board does not want these scams perpetrated upon their students either!

Plainly you are committing libel against myself and you are are denying my lifesaving inventions that are recognized by most of the major authors listed on the website http://www.sponsonguy.com
The question most parents, especially parents of endangered or dead children want to ask is: "What does Paddle Canada say about you?"

What does Paddle Canada verify here: "I’d actually agree with much of what you have to say" or your deadly PFD and safety scams at Halton District School Board below, that are actually part of the Paddle Canada program, according to available information.

Every Canadian has a "Duty to Warn". I take your threats against me seriously, whoever you are, actually affiliated with Paddle Canada or not. Your original message to me, including Cc. email addresses is now posted exactly as your email arrived to me: threatening myself, my books, my integrity, my business, my family, my children, and my patents as misleading and false.

Tim Ingram

And now Rylan Kozak (Nylon) has arranged for a letter, May 21,2008, to be sent to me by Mr. Allen Murray of Kenny and Murray, Barristers and Solicitors, 228 Brunswick Street, Fredericton, N.B. E3B 5G2. Mr. Murray states Mr. Kozak is a "qualified canoe instructor." "To suggest he is a part of a murderous cult because he questioned your position with respect to the type of equipment you promote is nothing short of libellous, slanderous and a defamation to his character."

Mr. Murray apparently thinks that Mr. Kozak is fully entitled to commit libel against me to Paddle Canada and Justice Canada, saying that I "make a representation to the public that is false or misleading in a material respect", quite apart from his email references to slandering my reputation to many others: "Tampon,  I hate to break it to you, but anyone I’ve shown our correspondence or your website to, sees you as a joke. Is that what you want to be buddy?  A JOKE!?!?", "Keep on your quest to make humans invincible and life risk free.  That'll be a fun world...NOT!", and creating "a panel for an ethical review" of my business.

This is outrageous considering the 1994 10th Airbourne U.S. Miltary Sponson Study, The Canadian Coast Guard Sponson Study, The Transportation Safety Board of Canada Report Number M93W0008, The US Coast Guard Sponsons Study, and my lifesaving inventions are recognized by most of the major authors listed on the website http://www.sponsonguy.com

Finally, Mr. Kozak's own words confirm the libellous nature of his attacks against me and his lies about sponsons, that also provide the "extra flotation" Mr. Kozak needed: "Seeing as I have, on numerous occasions, (without sponsons) paddled a swamped canoe across a small lake, let alone across and/through class II rapids on the Kanaskis River - It's tough to do, but I am clearly not lying. Mind you that there were inflated float-bags at the bow and stern of the canoe, when on the river these are essential.". Both Paddle Canada's famous and revered canoeist Bill Mason and canoe instructor Nylon (Rylan Kozak) have now stated (Bill Mason in his last book), that they were not able to get out of the water without "extra flotation". If you are not able to get out of the water you die. In Canada the waters are cold enough to induce hypothermia in minutes, even in Summer. Paddle Canada's instructional scheme provides no means to get out of the water, as proven by both Bill Mason, over 20 years ago, and Nylon, who repeatedly indicates some affiliation with Paddle Canada in his emails to me. Paddle Canada's instructional scheme provides no means for the public to escape certain death in the water! You will note that Nylon first states he can "paddle a flooded canoe to shore", then admits that he cannot, without "extra flotation" and even then it is "tough."  The extra flotation is best provided by the patented sponsons that add about a pound of weight within a tiny container within a canoe gunwale and inflate in seconds by means of a CO2 cartridge, similar to an inflatable PFD but having the option of much stronger construction:

Mr. Murray is advised to read further regarding Mr. Kozak's libellous attacks against me for several months. Mr. Kozak has threatened me briefly over the phone before I hung up. Mr. Kozak appears to have an irrational sense of entitlement to prevent any citizens or children from having any means to escape the water. Even Mr. Kozak and the famous Bill Mason were unable the escape certain death in the water, even wearing a PFD like the Girl Guides, without "extra flotation". I advise Mr. Murray to ask his client to cease harrasssment of myself, my family, slandering of myself to others, and libelling my person as well as lying about my product.
Unfortunately the only means I have to protect myself and my young family against the past predations of Mr. Kozak is to protest his behavior to you Richard, at Paddle Canada, and maintain the entire truth of these libellous accusations and deadly Paddle Canada instructional scam on the Internet. Denounce Mr. Kozak at Paddle Canada and give Canadians sponsons to save their lives.

You cannot allow "a qualified canoe instructor", according to his lawyer Mr. Murray, to continue to endanger Canadian citizens by denying them any means to escape the water. This is a criminal act, resulting in many deaths. Canadian Law is clear with respect to my Duty to Warn. Or anyone's Duty to Warn.

May 18, 2008 in a small lake in Richmond Hill they murdered 2 young men, Alon Kulik and Daniel Montazernezam, who attended a Canadian school that taught 2 Canadian School Board Scams: "put a PFD on in the water" and "paddle a flooded canoe to shore". (Small lakes and reservoirs in the U.S. and Canada are just as dangerous as any lake in Canada.) Victims who cannot get out of the water die in downtown Toronto or anywhere. Drowning is an agonizing but easily preventable death in downtown Toronto or anywhere. Since May 18, 2008, only 2 weeks, at least one other death has occurred in Canada because victims have not been able to get out of the water and into a canoe like the 2 ten year old girls, in 5 seconds! This is not a small number of easily preventable deaths.

Note that historically, Paddle Canada (until recently the Canadian Recreational Canoeing Association) advocated safety flotation for canoes through revered member and famous Canadian canoeist Bill Mason, who reversed his traditional rescue ideas after the many dead schoolchildren (12) in the 1978 Lake Temiskaming tragedy, stating that these rescues simply cannot work, in his last book: "canoe over canoe...I have since changed my mind..." (Song of the Paddle,1988, p.126). Mr. Mason advocated extra interior flotation; otherwise a flooded canoe cannot be paddled and no self rescue is possible. Extra interior flotation is not as effective as sponsons because it negates the water ballast/buoyancy couple that allows:

1. Any 10 year old kids to get out of the water within 5 seconds,
2. As well as rescue others from the water immediately, even large disabled adults from the water in wind and waves.
3. Bail the flooded canoe by simply leaning on one sponson to allow water to pour out, the sponsoned gunwale being slightly above the exterior water level.
4. Re-capsize protection even if large waves completely refill the canoe (or kayak) since the water within is actually water ballast, created by the leverage of the water ballast/sponson buoyancy couple. More water inside creates more stability through more weight. Without sponsons, water inside canoes and kayaks sloshes from side to side, as revealed by the expert paddler "Nylon" as well as Bill Mason.

Paddle Canada's instructional scheme provides no means for the public to escape certain death in the water! You will note that Nylon first states he can "paddle a flooded canoe to shore", then admits that he cannot, without "extra flotation" and even then it is "tough."  The extra flotation is best provided by the patented sponsons that add about a pound of weight within a tiny container within a canoe gunwale and inflate in seconds by means of a CO2 cartridge, similar to an inflatable PFD but having the option of much stronger construction.

Paddle Canada is liable for these easily preventable deaths based on 2 major scams within almost all Canadian school boards.

Hi Richard:

My emailer jumbles sentences so it is best to simply read http://www.sponsonguy.com/paddlecanada.html in order to read this email more clearly.

1. Your question "Why is Paddle Canada's instructional scheme fraudulent?" is answered simply: Paddle Canada's instructional scheme is based on trickery and deceit, which is the definition of "fraudulent". Both Paddle Canada's Bill Mason and the canoe instructor Nylon (Rylan Kozak) have stated that they are not

 2. "How is Paddle Canada associated with this?"

Nylon repeatedly indicates some affiliation with Paddle Canada in his emails, including a "panel for the ethical review" of my business. He has revealed one of these email addresses to Paddle Canada and Justice Canada already: kodiak_mark@hotmail.com,matty_g46@hotmail.com, brendananderson100@hotmail, krystil_k@hotmail.com  I suspect that at least one of these contacts will be affiliated with Paddle Canada.

Some people will commit crimes, even cruel murders of children if they think there are no consequences.

It is a matter of record that they have killed many students across Canada by tricking school boards like the Halton District School Board. The editors of Kanawa below, ethical and truly interested in safety, appear to be in the minority at Paddle Canada, like the late Bill Mason.

Paddle Canada's fraudulent instruction scheme has been aided until now by OPP Sergeant Schlorff, OPP Superintendent Smith and OPP Commissioner Fantino, who only now realize that no OPP officers can "paddle a flooded canoe to shore", like Nylon and Bill Mason. OPP Schlorff, RCMP Lecuyer and RCMP Zaccardelli have joined for many years Transport Canada G. McDonald, Hache, Churchill, and Garapick, among others, to permit deliberate fraudulent killings by canoe and kayak. Interestingly, MP Reynolds (a very decent and well-respected politician), before the last election, replied to my emails that MP Toews and MP Harper were going to address this long-standing Liberal party scandal. Now PM Harper has forgotten. (This is in the Gomery Inquiry archives now.) This is similar to the RCMP and OPP behavior. Seehttp://www.sponsonguy.com/policecrime.html  Government institutions are reluctant to charge large groups with serious crimes unless it is terrorism. See the Cornwall Pedophile Scandal that implicates Crown Attorneys and Chiefs of Police.

Is Paddle Canada too big and powerful to be arrested for murdering over 400 in Canada in canoes and kayaks since 1993? (This is larger than Canada's largest terrorism scandal, Air India.) It took a long time for charges in the tainted blood scandal. Police were reluctant to press charges of Criminal Negligence. But Paddle Canada shows a uniquely thirsty appetite for the deliberate and agonizing deaths of Canadian children, despite the moral leadership of Bill Mason and others. This is a very unique study in criminology and social psychology. Far larger and having many more immediate political implications than the Milgram studies at Yale, inspired by Nuremberg.

Briefly Richard, please consult competent legal counsel and try to immediately divest yourself from the "Paddle Canada Instruction Scheme" that murders Canadians and their children. You can make a huge historical contribution for good. Or you may be eventually arrested as a perpetrator. The cult around you could be dangerous to you; since they become very angry when confronted. They have spent many years used to entitlement to torture victims to death. They will not give up this power easily. Please be careful. I am ensured of immediate police protection when I need it. You are in a difficult position if you can see your moral stake in this.

Yours truly, Tim

Dear Richard:

I received today another email from Rylan Kozak, who I name "Nylon" and
who proclaims himself or herself as a "canoe instructor" possibly
affiliated with Paddle Canada and a group he or she refers to as a
"panel for the ethical review of your business".

I have the original email that Nylon sent to you at Paddle Canada and
the Department of Justice Canada, entitled : "Tim Ingram is commiting
(sic) Libel against Paddle Canada, ORCKA, OPP and other groups." Indeed
this Nylon character has committed libel against myself, and probably
slander as well. Nylon feels entitled to sell the most dangerous canoes
and kayaks possible, as well as the pyramid scheme of fraudulent
instruction at Paddle Canada that I have described below.

Unfortunately Nylon feels entitled to continue to commit libel and
slander against myself as well as defraud school boards and endanger
school children across Canada. This practice has resulted in the deaths
of many students across Canada. It appears to any reasonable person that
Nylon is committing these many crimes against the Criminal Code of
Canada with the official support of Paddle Canada.

Please denounce these actions by "canoe instructor" Nylon, who also
refers to "Rylan Kozak". You will note that both Paddle Canada's Bill
Mason and Nylon have stated that they are not able to get out of the
water without extra flotation, that extra flotation being best provided
by the patented sponsons that add about a pound of weight within a tiny
container within a canoe gunwale and inflate in seconds by means of a
CO2 cartridge, similar to an inflatable PFD but having the option of much
stronger construction.

I anticipate your considered response. Over the years I have recognized
that Paddle Canada embraces both the views of decent Canadians like Bill
Mason and the past editors of "Kanawa" as well as some "instructors" who
act as a cult (like Nylon) to sell the most dangerous canoes and kayaks
possible, without any failsafe means like a life raft or car seat belts
for example, to escape certain death.

Thank you for your assistance. These Canadians are easily saved, just as
they are easily killed for profit.

Tim

Letter to President of Paddle Canada
(http://www.sponsonguy.com/paddlecanada.html)














April 14, 2008

Dear President of Paddle Canada:

Re: Paddle Canada School Board Scam Endangers Thousands of Schoolchildren, Killing Many Students.

I am emailing you again, with the original email to you below. I encourage you to warn the Canadian School Boards regarding the Thousands of students deliberately endangered, many even killed, by Paddle Canada for money. This may be a difficult time for you, as President of Paddle Canada, but draw courage and moral character from the late Bill Mason, the famous Canadian canoeist who Paddle Canada proclaims so often:

"Note that historically, Paddle Canada (until recently the Canadian Recreational Canoeing Association) advocated safety flotation for canoes through revered member and famous Canadian canoeist Bill Mason who reversed his traditional rescue ideas after the many dead schoolchildren in the 1978 Lake Temiskaming tragedy, stating that these rescues simply cannot work, in his last book: "canoe over canoe...I have since changed my mind..." (Song of the Paddle,1988, p.126). Mr. Mason advocated extra interior flotation; otherwise a flooded canoe cannot be paddled and no self rescue is possible, as noted by Nylon in the emails below. Extra interior flotation is not as effective as sponsons because it negates the water ballast/buoyancy couple that allows:
1. Any 10 year old kids to get out of the water within 5 seconds,
2. As well as rescue others from the water immediately, even large disabled adults from the water in wind and waves.
3. Bail the flooded canoe by simply leaning on one sponson to allow water to pour out, the sponsoned gunwale being slightly above the exterior water level.
4. Re-capsize protection even if large waves completely refill the canoe (or kayak) since the water within is actually water ballast, created by the leverage of the water ballast/sponson buoyancy couple. More water inside creates more stability through more weight. Without sponsons, water inside canoes and kayaks sloshes from side to side, as revealed by the expert paddler "Nylon" in the emails below, as well as Bill Mason above."
(http://www.sponsonguy.com/publicsafetywarning.html)

You will notice that Bill Mason recognized that Paddle Canada had no means to save any school children dying in the water. Bill Mason recognized that the Canoe over Canoe rescue that you at Paddle Canada still sell to school boards, twenty (20) years later for money, leaves school children to die in the water and worse, capsizes rescuing canoes, adding to to death toll. Of course you know this and you have known about sponsons at Paddle Canada, formerly the Canadian Recreational Canoeing Association since 1993. Your past  Presidents have been informed regarding sponsons for 15 years and have known about Bill Mason's safety warnings for 20 years. Well over 400 Canadians have died in canoes and kayaks (mostly canoes), since that time, only 20 years ago. This number of easily preventable deaths has eclipsed the Air India Bombing in tragic death! It behooves you to address this properly, and cease the fraudulent rescue programs at Canadian school boards.

Nylon, the would-be canoe instructor character, "reveals the anti-social trait of many canoe and kayak instructors: arguing for the right to deliberately endanger even schoolchildren, killing many in cold waters; because Nylon insists on his right to use dozens of specious and even utterly ridiculous arguments to do anything  he (or she) wants to condemn victims to death while he or she continues to state he or she has a means to rescue them, that then quickly becomes "not a rescue" in the "bait and switch" pattern; as an equally defective and deadly "rescue idea" is then substituted in an endless circle of murderous deceit. This pattern is familiar to criminal investigators interviewing murderers who desperately say almost anything to try to deflect the blame from themselves: "Enough with the b.s. – b.s. (Bait and switch) – I’m not buying it. There is no 100% failsafe rescue for anything in life, only different options. A rescue involves doing whatever it takes, with what you have available to save lives."

"Unfortunately Bill Mason died young. Bill Mason would not have tolerated the current "pyramid scheme" of instruction shown on the Paddle Canada website, with "Instructor Trainors" teaching Instructors of various levels of certification who in turn teach even "lesser beings". The base of the pyramid has no means for anyone to get out of the water! This sounds like scientology, but it is borrowed from the American Canoe Association pyramid scheme described in my book, available at   http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1410745686/104-7311700-7202307?v=glance&n=283155 "Canoe and Kayak Scam Kills 1000 Americans, US Coast Guard Studies Device to Save Victims" pp.152-153."

Paddle Canada is currently in a very large social psychology experiment that tests your willingness to subject Canadian children (and adults) to excruciating pain while dying in the water. Drowning is not a painless death. Waterboarding torture at Guantanamo Bay is a favoured torture because it simulates drowning. The Nazi Gestapo, the Kymer Rouge in Cambodia and the Spanish Inquisition all favoured waterboarding. Paddle Canada apparently has no qualms regarding the protection of Canadians, even Canadian children, from the agony of canoe and kayak deaths; despite the good example of Bill Mason. Worse, Paddle Canada has created thousands of victims who have been scarred for life, witnessing the tortured deaths of their classmates, crying for their mothers and loved ones as they slowly succumb. We know this because there are often survivors who have witnessed these deaths, for example, the Girl Guides. On Thankgiving Day 1997 near Parry Sound, Ontario at a kid's camp, one boy was selcted to live, and one boy was left to die; because the instructors could not bring bring all kayaks to shore without capsizing themselves. They had no sponsons to stabilize their own kayaks, so the instructors chose not to risk capsizing themselves and their own deaths, and clumsily tried to remain upright while they slowly got one of the victims to shore.

Dr. Beatrice Porter said Dr. James Young had no record of my letter to him about this Thanksgiving Day  tragedy, but the Coroner's Office also at that time employed Dr. Charles Smith who was fabricating evidence for the police to eventually convict about 20 Canadians for killing children. (This was covered recently in the press.) The Coroner's Office has been entirely negligent in the Girl Guide Inqiuiry as well; in fact lying to Canadians with 20 recommendations to Transport Canada: including a spring-loaded pole along the keel of a canoe so when the canoe capsizes and is upside-down, the pole with a flag marks the spot for the OPP boat to see it. Of course, apart from numerous problems with this invention from the coroner's Girl Guide inquiry, the OPP boats are not so fast and numerous that they can reach all capsized canoes in time to prevent death. But the OPP liked the idea in case they get the money for more boats. Dr. Porter and the Coroner's Office knew about sponsons and the pictures of the girls in the White Canoe before the Inquest and even months before the Girl Guides actually died! These letters, emails and telephone conversations are well-recorded at Queen's Park and elsewhere. Ironically Dr. Charles Smith could have fingered his own Coroner's Office and ultimate boss, Liberal MPP Monte Kwinter for child murder, instead of completely innocent Canadian citizens.

Canoes kill more victims, but Paddle Canada has no means to rescue victims in kayaks either; witness the boy at Camp in Parry Sound and dozens of other victims.

I advise you, Mr. President to find a very experienced lawyer to represent your personal interests, apart from Paddle Canada. Your organization Paddle Canada has created a Death Program using millions of dollars from Canadian Taxpayers to kill them and their children, within school boards across Canada. The most rabid of the Paddle Canada instructors feel so entitled to endanger citizens and their children that they could be dangerous. They could be very angry with you for whistle-blowing. In fact they could threaten your life. Some of them are very touchy when their right to the power of life and death is questioned. This is a common response of an organized and anti-social delusional system. Your lawyer may be able to protect you. Only You can stop these murders most effectively. You can also continue them. Your personal interests are not the same as killers at Paddle Canada. You are most likely to be blamed, as president of Paddle Canada for any new Canoe and Kayak deaths in Canada, about to resume in approximately one (1) month from today.

There is no possiblity for you to avoid your responsibility here. This study is even more compelling than any previous experiments in social psychology, and it will be published in the major academic journals. The Yale (Milgram) experiments and the later Stanford Prison Experiment used "normal human subjects within a normal population". Paddle Canada uses a normal population as well, that it transforms through its' pyramid instruction scheme and "bait asnd switch" techniques into a population that actively targets innocent adult and child victims, blaming them for their own deaths (for not taking "enough" expensive, time-consuming, and never-ending instruction.) You will note that Bill Mason and other competent and morally upright persons plainly condemned canoe over canoe rescues in books and elsewhere; plus they condemned the Paddle Canada "Paddle a Flooded Canoe" scam that Bill Mason and  "your instructor" "Nylon" recognized requires extra interior flotation to accomplish at all. This latter scam is almost laughable, as if the wooden gunwales of a canoe, less than 2 inches in diameter have enough buoyancy, like Sponsons, to stabilize a flooded canoe.

This large study in social psycholgy is far larger than the Stanford Prison Experiment or the earlier famous Milgram experiments at Yale. This study is unique to academic psychology in that it is ongoing and involves real lives that are deliberately endangered and lost, mainly in the months of May to October in Canada, that would otherwise be lost to science as well. Paddle Canada has constructed the experimental conditions that actually kill human beings for money and the gratification of power over life and death. The Milgram experiments were outlawed decades ago due to the severe psychological effects on subjects who found that they were capable (within the experimental conditions that did not actually "shock" the victims), of severely torturing other human beings, even to death. See the book: http://www.canoekayaksafety.com/chapterseven.html

You and your lawyer may contact me for further advice. For example OPP officers who have insisted during phone interviews that they can "paddle a flooded canoe to shore" have been "de-programmed by me" over the phone in about 3 minutes; rather quickly acknowledging that they actually only managed to get a few feet and quickly recapsized. This simple phone call technique to police officers, both OPP and RCMP attests to the power of the initial scam on the minds of a normal population of police officers; but also the very shallow power of the scam when contradicted by a few seconds of information that contradict the scam wording in the minds of the officers. This is also true for the normal population at large. Only a few Paddle Canada intructors have required more than a few minutes of "de-programming information", and then they are of the same opinion of Bill Mason or "Nylon", whoever he or she actually is.

Yours truly,

Tim Ingram (705-549-3722)

Dear President of Paddle Canada:

Re: Paddle Canada School Board Scam Endangers Thousands of Schoolchildren, Killing Many Students. (http://www.sponsonguy.com/publicsafetywarning.html)

Someone by the name of Rylan Kozak sent you a libellous email regarding myself about 2 days ago. Mr. Kozak, whom I name as "Nylon" since I have no idea of his true identity or a group he describes as "panel for ethical review" of my business. He states that he is an instructor and expert paddler who "saves lives" while paddling around.

Paddle Canada's "Kanawa" magazine intended to publish an article on the CO2 sponsons that enable any 2 ten year old kids to rescue themselves within 5 seconds, plus rescue others in the water, without any expensive, and very complicated instruction; that Nylon above admits cannot rescue him! Of course Mr. President of Paddle Canada, you cannot rescue yourself either, as you know, just like Nylon.

I include the record of intent at your Kanawa Magazine, nearly 200 Canadian canoe and kayak, children and adult deaths, ago:

  Dear Ken:

  I am not sure just how to "Canadianize" but I'll just write "off the cuff" now.

  How is this:

  Commonsense Canoe and Kayak Safety
  by Tim Ingram

  It's pretty simple. When canoes and kayaks capsize, people are most at risk of bad experiences. A general, acceptable statement of fact. Right? Ok, swimming pool capsizes don't count.

  In emergency capsizes, canoes and kayaks are not only threatened by water flooding the interior (and causing more instability), getting back in the craft doesn't change the circumstances (that have not magically disappeared.)  People need a Much more stable craft than the one that capsized in the first place, a much more stable craft even filled with water.

  Pumping out flooded kayaks and canoes in capsizing wind and waves is an extremely optimistic idea. (Yes we have heard of ramming a 2-handed bilge pump down a 2-handed sprayskirt, while balancing on a 2-handed paddle with a float on the end.) But eventually you have to retrieve the paddle in the same capsizing conditions. And then you have no paddle to brace with. You are Less stable than before capsize. Paddling a flooded open canoe to safety is impossible for anyone. Try it in a pool. Then take a 17' 9" canoe. (This picture probably shows a ton and a half of water in this big Bluewater expedition.) But the girls get it going well, after overcoming inertia.

    Pic 1

  The reason the girls can do this: 10 adult puffs of air encased within two, 400 denier nylon urethane bladders. The bladders resemble the 5,000 year old Bering Sea double floats, shown on models of kayaks found in ancient graves.

  Ten puffs is a powerful fix of tranverse emergency stability, as you can see. Try it yourself in a pool. Please do not rig your own sponsons for actual conditions. There are many critical and technical aspects for safe sponsons, even though they look simple. But you can have fun in a safe pool just to see the 10 puff power for yourself.

  David Zimmerly, a Canadian anthropologist, wrote that Russian military officers reported double floats used by Aleut kayakers, in the 19th century, for stability in storms. Ditto for Greenlanders seen by Danish observers,  5,000 years after Bering Sea double floats. Missionaries in the 19th century were relieved to see big marine mammal floats, held down into the water for stability in furious storms, on those big dugout Canoes of the Northwest. (The Canadian Canoe Museum notices their Haida canoe is quite unstable in waves. All Dugouts are unstable. That's why the Haida had floats, and the Polynesians had outriggers.)

  I might add that canoe and kayak rescues require one thing the aboriginal floats did not incorporate. That is the ability to paddle to safety. That is what differentiates the meaning of the word "sponson" (an extension of the hull) from "double floats". The Aleut and the others just held floats down in the water for stability and capsize protection. NATO military kayakers recently did the same thing until the modern yellow, patented sponsons, shown in this picture of Jack, were made in dark blue:
 
 

  Pic2 

Here is a picture of Jack  8 years later taking a different sponson model for a spin.

  Pic3 

Now he needs a rest. (We are all getting a little older.)
 
 

Pic4

  You know, feedback from instructors as far flung as Australia, England and California indicates fear that sponsons make them obsolete. Nothing could be farther from the truth. They can't meet the need now. And safety can be used to sell the amazing benefits of canoes and kayaks. And free instructors up to teach some of those amazing experiential benefits, with the safety bases covered better. Safety now sells cars. Any marketing expert will tell you: Better Safety Will Sell Canoes and Kayaks much better than the rather disorganized marketing to date. Have a great Fall season. Thanks, Tim

  Hello Tim....I am guest editing Kanawa, and in Ken's files, found a copy of some correspondence from you.  There is a story -- which looks like a good bet for Kanawa -- but unfortunately, it is a bit garbled.  I'm wondering if you could send the file to me again.  There are photocopies of photos here, too.  Did you send jpegs?  Unfortunately, I did not inherit the computer or any electronic files.

  Can you fill me in on the background?  I like the idea of a story on "10-puff power" -- but I'm not sure I completely understand how the sponsons work.  In fact, I'm sure I DON'T understand.  Where are they located and how are they put into action?  (Sorry to be so dense about the topic!~)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
End of email, with repetitive matter deleted.

Most of the pictures are already in this book: The little girls in the big flooded white canoe, and the CO2 kayak sponsons.

This article was not ever published in "Kanawa", nor any similar article in US magazines. However we can see the conscientious and ethical intent among these editors. They were prevented from publishing by the Canadian Recreational Canoeing Association (CRCA) in Canada, just as an editor might have been prevented from publishing a similar safety article in "Paddler" by the ACA, in the US. We are all familiar with the canoe and kayak industry, and it's deliberate marketing of the most dangerous canoes and kayaks possible, to sell expensive gear and instruction that cannot get victims out of the water." http://www.canoekayaksafety.com/chapterthree.html

So, Mr. President of Paddle Canada, there are decent people at Paddle Canada who do not intend to Scam Canadian school boards, Endanger tens of thousands of school children, or kill many students: Crimes that in fact Paddle Canada has committed.

I encourage you, at Paddle Canada, to immediately inform the Children's Aid Society of the risk of death to all children in schools in Canada. All Canadians have a duty to warn the CAS about children at risk, in danger of death like the 2 Girl Guides and many other dead, tortured Canadian children who have died since the Kanawa article was prevented: by someone or some group of criminals (there is no other possible term, although these individuals may be suffering from a psychiatric illness, to blatantly endanger and kill so many children in canoes and kayaks) at the Canadian Recreational Canoeing Association, that has recently changed the name to Paddle Canada. This is the law: Your Duty is to warn the CAS (and keep copies of your warning in a safe place for your own good, in view of the Cornwall Pedophile Cover-up.)

It is the law to have all branches of Paddle Canada, across Canada, warn all school boards across Canada of the extreme danger of their canoe and kayak programs. I have warned the OPP, RCMP, Halton District School Board among other school boards in the past. But they will tend to believe you more, as president of  Paddle Canada. School Boards are bureaucracies and they are easily tricked; although any high school physics teacher will readily understand the force of buoyancy of the CO2 sponsons and the weight of the water inside the flooded canoe to add even more stability, as a buoyancy/ballast leverage couple, in the many pictures of the 2 ten year old kids in the big white canoe.

Please note that I will happily sell you the Canadian CO2 sponson patent for a modest amount, to cover my costs of development over 20 years. I have no interest in making a profit. I wanted to save the lives of nearly 3000 dead people in the U.S. and Canada,  in canoes and kayaks, during this time. I am content to save those remaining. See the major patent: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/6343562.html

I warn you against improperly contacting the police or the office of the Attorney General in Ottawa or any Province in Canada. PM Harper and AG Toews already know about this scam and these deaths, just as former PM Martin and AG A. Anne McLellan knew. Any police officer in Canada is risking their career and even imprisonment for contacting the CAS or investigating this case; since it is against RCMP and OPP policy, just like the Cornwall Pedophile Cover-up. One police officer is now in jail regarding the Cornwall Pedophile Cover-up. However a group of police officers, appropriately prepared, perhaps aided by their union, may perhaps safely investigate the deliberate killing of school children within Canadian school boards. This is a tiny excerpt of what happened to the dutiful police officer who attempted to save children in the Cornwall Pedophile Scandal:

"...I said it made me sick to know that children were potentially at risk and that we had done little or nothing on this file. Brunet stated: "We can't solve all the crimes a lot of times. We know who is responsible, but there is nothing we can do. I have spoken to Constable

Kevin Malloy (a Cornwall Police Service Constable) who knows a lot about sexual assault and he said we need corroboration".
 

 POLICE NOW HAD THREE VICTIMS.

I stated to Staff Sergeant Brunet that Constable Sebalj told me that there were other victims in this case. I asked: "Did we ever interview Father Charlie or Ken Seguin during the course of this investigation and confront them on the allegations made against them?" He said: "No". I asked him if we had ever conducted surveillance on them, again the answer was no. I asked what had been done and he said Constable Sebalj had called some people.

Brunet then stated: "You realize you can be charged for Breach of Trust under the Police Act. We would really hate to lose you, Perry. You've been through this before but you were single at the time. ( Brunet was making reference to an incident in 1985 where I was charged under the Police Services Act for failing to report damage to a police car of an approximate value of one hundred dollars.) Now you have a wife and three children to think about.
 

You have your career to think about. You have to operate within the system or you are just as bad as a criminal. You know in these cases you have to dot your
 

 Page 11 of 110

...........…………………………………………………………………….....……

"i" and cross your "t". He then asked me if I had any paperwork on the case and said: "I want it returned. This is over and you have to let it be. I have spoken to the Crown. There is nothing we can do. This guy has settled. He (D.S.) has a lawyer and everything."
 

I said to Brunet: "Have you considered going to the Bishop?" He stated: "No, but that's a good idea. Maybe the Chief and I could go down. But then that's it. You have to let it go." I said: "This is wrong. The way it was handled was wrong. No wonder the victim settled

after waiting so long." He said: "I agree and I guess I'm going to have to take some of the blame for this." Our conversation ended when his phone rang. I felt threatened for my job.
 

There was no doubt in my mind that children would remain at risk. I was very concerned. I also could not believe the accused persons had never even been interviewed by the police.
 

I felt very intimidated and threatened by Staff Sergeant Brunet as I left his office. That was the very last time, to this present date, that Staff Sergeant Brunet has ever spoken to me, with the exception of a recent grievance issue. Staff Sergeant Brunet was very defensive towards the investigation, and very offensive towards me. I have never in my career been treated in that manner.
 

22.  On September 30, 1993, having concluded that it was my duty under the Child and Family Services Act to report the alleged sexual abuse, I provided Mr. Richard Abell, Director of Children's Aid Society in Cornwall, a copy of the D.S. victim statement. I have been told and do verily believe that the Chief of Police, Claude Shaver, went wild when he found out I had visited the Children's Aid Society. In fact, he went to Children's Aid Society to confront Mr. Abell and was furious that I had gone outside the Police Service. There has been evidence given at my Police Act trial that indicates the former Chief of Police had hands on this investigation from the onset and was not following proper police protocol.

 He was bypassing the chain of command and directing this investigation. (Book One - Tab 7)

I have learned through statements that I have obtained that Shaver was good friends with the two suspects in the initial case. Chief Claude Shaver should have declared a conflict of interest...." http://www.theinquiry.ca/WillState_Part1.hide.php

Perhaps you can approach a "bipartisan" group in Parliament instead of a police officer or a group of police officers, who are much more vulnerable to blackmail than any Members of Parliament in a group. Media will tend to pay more attention, assisting the safety of the investigation. The Ontario Legislature has some supporters, but I keep them close since their political influence could be ruined, within even their own party. Make sure a bipartisan group has at least 3 political parties represented, i.e. tripartisan; since both the Liberals and Conservatives have their own emails from me that they wish to keep buried.

The deliberate endangerment and tortured deaths of Canadian adults is a powerful scandal, not to mention Canadian Children; and very dangerous for the unprepared, weak-minded and weak-hearted. I can help you with any questions, in confidence.

Thank you for your respectful reading of this warning. I can appreciate that you, as President of Paddle Canada, want to save these children and their parents. On the positive side you should remember how many canoes and kayaks with sponsons have been used for years as rescue craft by Coast Guard SAR groups and the U.S. Military. Canoeing and kayaking can now be sold by safety, like cars! Fraudulent instruction dollars are not only criminal; there is far more money in teaching truthful canoeing and kayaking: from camping and survival, nature studies, biology, ecology, history, ethnology, weather-reading, etc, etc. This is the best way to grow your sport and grow your profits.

Thank you, Tim Ingram
