"I am Austin Davis. My life was saved by your floats. [See article in Sea kayaker Dec 97] There was no way in my situation that any other means of recovery would have saved me or allowed me to get home upright in my hypothermic condition. Your opinion about the rolls and paddle floats mirror my real life experience. Thanks for the gear that saved my life. I hope the article in sea kayaker helps your cause."

Attorney General Michael Bryant is charged under the Criminal Code of Canada with conspiracy to prosecute an innocent person, obstructing justice, fabricating evidence, accessory after the fact to the charge Criminal negligence causing death CCC. 220 (b) against A. Anne McLellan, impeding attempt to save life, fraud, intimidation of a justice system participant, committing mischief that causes actual danger to life, and wilfully does an act or wilfully omits to do an act that is his duty to do, if that act or omission is likely to constitute mischief causing actual danger to life, fraud or breach of trust by public officer, wilful promotion of hatred. The Criminal Code of Canada does not allow Mr. Bryant to interfere with the charge against A. Anne McLellan, contrary to CCC. section 139 (2). Protection of Persons Administering and Enforcing the Law, 25.1 (11) Limitation- Nothing in this section justifies (a) the intentional or criminally negligent causing of death or bodily harm to another person; (b) the wilful attempt in any manner to obstruct, pervert or defeat the course of justice;...

Despite my many clear and repeated warnings to him and other government officials in the Liberal party over the period of approximately 1 year, Mr. Bryant has wilfully acted to leave Canadian children and adults in the water, to die cruel and agonizing deaths in great pain and terror, while using canoes and kayaks, despite mandatory reporting requirements for children in danger within all Canadian jurisdictions and the duty to warn persons at risk, a well established principle in Canadian law. Mr. Bryant has markedly departed from the standard of a reasonably prudent person who normally tries to save lives and prevent needless suffering. Mr. Bryant continues to spread deadly and degrading canoe and kayak propaganda.

Mr. Bryant acted 6 days after the 3 boys died north of Winnipeg and 6 days before the judicial hearing on June 1, 2005 for A. Anne McLellan regarding 33 canoe and kayak deaths, to prosecute an innocent person for indirect and improper motives, that is to avoid political scandal and protect the Liberal party; but he also showed mens rea coexisting with willful and reckless disregard for the safety and lives of innocent citizens, resulting in approximately 25 canoe and kayak deaths in Canada in 2005, (26 dead in 2004), despite my best efforts to save these victims (consulting the OPP on numerous occasions for the past 5 years). Mr. Bryant conspired with his department and the Ontario Provincial Police under Minister of Public Safety, Mr. Monte Kwinter, to maliciously prosecute myself to protect A. Anne McLellan and the Liberal party from scandal at the time of the Gomery Inquiry. These actions are reasonable and probable grounds for numerable counts of Murder in the second degree.

I am maliciously prosecuted under the charge Publishing a defamatory libel s. 301 (found unconstitutional numerous times in Canada, below), prosecuted as an innocent person for indirect and improper motives, namely to avoid political scandal and protect the Liberal party; while subjecting Canadian citizens, including children, to the most cruel and agonizing deaths that can be imagined by reasonable citizens. My attempts to save these victims by means of   the most powerful warnings possible regarding the extreme pain and terror experienced by these victims as a result of fraudulent canoe and kayak safety, is protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms; as well as by my civil duty to warn of these horrible deaths, through fraudulent instruction that denies any means for victims to save themselves, as described below.

Mr. Bryant and Mr. Kwinter have used taxpayer-funded, Degrading Propaganda to effectively minimize the horror perceived by normal citizens regarding these agonizing deaths for profit by instructor lobby groups. This propaganda has even convinced some grieving families that the painful deaths of their loved ones were "their own fault". The falsehoods of this propaganda are easily seen in the pictures and text below, and easily proven in any court of law. Degrading Propaganda is an extremely effective weapon in the hands of powerful government officials. The Canadian Red Cross documents over 350 Canadian deaths in canoes and kayaks since August 1994 when the Canadian Coast Guard recommended airbags (sponsons) to save these lives. These deaths exceed the Air India bombing as the largest case of mass murder in Canadian history. Canoes and kayaks are used to murder individuals and small groups during the 2 months and the few warm weekends of a Canadian summer; approximately 25 victims die in this form of mass murder annually in Canada, in pain and terror that is truly horrible to imagine.

The horror of this scandal can be crudely computed by the average number of grieving Canadians as a result of these needless deaths; a conservative estimate of about 100 grieving relatives, friends, classmates, etc. for every death: 2,500 berieved citizens every year in Canada. Over 35,000 berieved Canadians since the courageous Canadian Coast Guard Search and Rescue officer Colin __ blew the whistle at Coast Guard Headquarters in Victoria, B.C., August 1994. This is a horrible indictment of Transport Canada's safety ethics and morality during the Chretien years, and the ensuing cover-up by Minister of Public Safety McLellan and others. About 60 Canadian children have died in pain and terror through the government of Transport Canada since 1994, and their families have been destroyed in consequence. (It is impossible to regard these terrible facts as "defamatory", "false", or "malicious", unless one finds these deaths "acceptable".) This scandal, based on sadistic "safety" lies about canoes and kayaks, is a remarkably horrible criminal accomplishment by a Canadian government.

I have consulted RCMP, OPP and Toronto Police officers, including an OPP superintendent, regarding these horrible and needless deaths. I consulted the Criminal Code of Canada over a year ago to determine my legal rights to accuse government officials and others of not preventing needless and horrible deaths in 2005. I have noted s. 309 and s. 311 allow a citizen to publish what may be regarded by some parties as "defamatory" under the legal justification of publishing matter of public interest and public benefit that one reasonably believes to be true (309), and the publishing of matter that is true and for public benefit (311).

Also s. 310 allows fair comment on performance of public duty of government officials. Yet another justification is s. 315, Publication in good faith for redress of wrong. Qualified Privilege protects a social, legal and moral duty to furnish this information; although the perpetrators may regard the matter published as defamatory. This is the largest Murder scandal in Canadian History, larger than Air India, and the performance of Canadian government officials therefore cannot possibly look "good". But the reputations of these government officials and the Canoe and Kayak Instructors Lobby Groups are not as important as the agonizing deaths of over 25 Canadians a year, including children, who are all deliberately degraded and
blamed for their own deaths.

My published information included historical precedents, as common in legal judgments, including the Nuremberg trials and the Plimsoll scandal in the UK. I pointed out the terrible consequences for Canadian government officials being blamed for such horribly cruel and deliberate degradation of victims. I found great sympathy from all police officers, who were largely unaware of the great death toll in Canada, and the easy airbag remedy, that has been effectively covered-up for over 10 years. I am a former scoutmaster and YMCA counselor. I have never before seen such deliberate degradation and endangerment of innocent citizens. Numerous authors have applauded the dramatic improvement of canoe and kayak safety by means of simple and inexpensive airbags (sponsons). The US Military endorsed them only a few months before the Canadian Coast Guard officer! These $25 airbags are concealed out of sight before deployment, within the gunwales of canoes or within streamlined containers bolted on both sides of kayaks, and weighing about 1 lb. There is no reasonable argument against this. Only killing for the profits from fraudulent instruction, that enjoys government endorsement. This cover-up is ruthless and an extreme horror for all Canadians when they see these facts. Propaganda is only effective until the true facts are revealed, in the media or within the evidentiary structure of a court of law. Newspaper headlines regarding Gomery Inquiry findings, and my letter from the Gomery Inquiry, indicate that these facts will eventually surface, and some justice in Canada will eventually happen for these victims. I was extremely surprised that the police did not at last charge the perpetrators of this scandal, after my information regarding these extreme horrors, the 3 dead boys north of Winnipeg covered on national news, and the large numbers of innocent victims still to die in agony in 2005!

Section 465(1)(b) Conspiracy to prosecute innocent person

   did conspire with the Ontario Provincial Police and Minister of Public Safety Monte Kwinter to prosecute Tim Ingram for an alleged offence, knowing that Tim Ingram did not commit that offence, to wit: prosecute Tim Ingram under the charge Publishing a defamatory libel s. 301 that has been found unconstitutional in courts in Ontario, Alberta and Saskatchewan, as well as the Supreme Court 1992, and infringing on the right to freedom of thought and expression guaranteed under section 2(b) of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms; since the Crown does not have to prove the defamatory matter is either false or malicious (though clearly this "defamatory" matter is neither false nor malicious, but consistently warns of the horrible consequences of the extreme pain and suffering of the numerous Canadian victims including children), contrary to s. 465(1)(b) of the Criminal Code of Canada.

Section 139(2) Obstructing justice

Every one who wilfully attempts in any manner other than a manner described in subsection (1) to obstruct, pervert or defeat the course of justice is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding ten years.

     did wilfully attempt to obstruct the course of justice, to wit: mislead a judicial proceeding by fabricating evidence regarding the efforts of Tim Ingram to prevent the horrible pain and suffering from easily preventable canoe and kayak deaths, contrary to s. 139(2) of the Criminal Code of Canada.

Section 137 Fabricating evidence

    with intent to mislead, did fabricate evidence regarding criminal charge Publishing a defamatory libel s. 301 against Tim Ingram, (this charge having already been found unconstitutional in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and the Supreme Court since 1992, and infringing on the right to freedom of thought and expression guaranteed under section 2(b) of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms) with intent that it should be used as evidence in a judicial proceeding, by a means other than perjury or incitement to perjury, to wit: Attorney General Michael Bryant misleads and recklessly endangers Canadian citizens by using propaganda to state that canoe instruction can save capsized victims (although Michael Bryant cannot save himself or anyone else), unlike 2 ten year old girls with canoe airbags; his attending Crown Attorney at the Barrie Courthouse in turn maliciously referred to Tim Ingram as defaming numerous parties as a part of his "conspiracy theories", June 1, 2005, (in fact Tim Ingram has repeatedly warned only those authorities who can reasonably be held responsible for preventing these agonizing canoe and kayak deaths, in pain and terror, due to fraudulent instruction and propaganda, and that these deaths are easily preventable); and she made other false statements recorded in this judicial proceeding, regarding Tim Ingram, to mislead the judicial proceeding, contrary to s. 137 of the Criminal Code of Canada.

Section 463 Accessory after the fact

     knowing that A. Anne McLellan had been a party to the offence of Criminal negligence causing death CCC. 220 (b), did assist A. Anne McLellan for the purpose of enabling A. Anne McLellan to escape, to wit: escape a judicial order for her to appear by misleading the judicial proceeding at the Barrie Courthouse, June 1, 2005 by means of fabricating evidence for malicious prosecution of Tim Ingram under s. 301, (this charge having already been found unconstitutional in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and the Supreme Court since 1992, and infringing on the right to freedom of thought and expression guaranteed under section 2(b) of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms), but enabling the attending Crown Attorney to thereby falsely defame Tim Ingram at the hearing, and mislead the standing of Tim Ingram before this judicial proceeding, resulting in no summons being issued for A. Anne McLellan, thereby continuing the deadly propaganda and the occurrence of further, agonizing canoe and kayak deaths, contrary to s. 463 of the Criminal Code of Canada.

Section 262 Impeding attempt to save life

     without reasonable cause, did prevent Tim Ingram, who was attempting to save the lives of over one dozen Canadian citizens, to wit: prevented Tim Ingram from warning Canadian safety authorities of more imminent and horrible suffering from canoe and kayak deaths, and consoling grieving families (who simply want more such horrible and agonizing deaths prevented), after May 26, 2005, contrary to s. 262(b) of the Criminal Code of Canada.

Section 380(1) Fraud

     by fraudulent means, did defraud the public of money, to wit: knowingly permitted the sale of dangerous and fraudulent canoe and kayak instruction in Ontario and Canada, contrary to s. 380(1) of the Criminal Code of Canada.

Section 423.1 Intimidation of a justice system participant

    without lawful authority and with intent to provoke a state of fear in Tim Ingram, threatened other fabricated charges as well as s. 301, to try to destroy his reputation, hurt his family and his property, Tim Ingram being a justice system participant in a judicial hearing, June 1, 2005, at the time of these threats, in order to impede Tim Ingram in the performance of his duties, contrary to s. 423.1(1) of the Criminal Code of Canada.

Section 430(2) Mischief causing danger to life

   wilfully did obstruct Tim Ingram in the lawful operation of property, and thereby commit mischief that caused actual danger to life, to wit: prevented the use of his personal computer and data contained within it to warn the public of imminent risk of death in canoes and kayaks, having no means of rescue, resulting in numerous deaths of Canadian citizens in 2005, contrary to s. 430(2) of the Criminal Code of Canada.

Section 430(5.1) Acts or omissions likely to cause mischief

   wilfully did an act and that act was likely to constitute mischief causing actual danger to life, to wit: obstruct the warning of the public of the imminent risk of death in canoes and kayaks with no means of rescue, contrary to s. 430(5.1) of the Criminal Code of Canada.

Section 122 Fraud or breach of trust by public officer

did commit fraud in connection with the duties of his office, to wit: knowingly defraud the public of money paid for deadly and misleading canoe and kayak instruction, contrary to s. 122 of the Criminal Code of Canada.

Section 319(2) Wilful promotion of hatred

did by communicating statements wilfully promote hatred against persons using canoes and kayaks, to wit: blame dead victims for their own deaths by using degrading propaganda known to be false, and perpetrate more cruel deaths, contrary to s. 319(2) of the Criminal Code of Canada.

Attention Honourable Members of the Ontario Legislature:

Re: Criminal Actions, Degrading Dead Victims, Attorney General of Ontario, Liberal Party of Canada

Three boys north of Winnipeg died only 3 days after I pointed out this inevitable outcome of criminal actions, to Michael Bryant and other members of the Liberal Party in Queen's Park and Ottawa. The boys apparently believed that they could save themselves by paddling a flooded canoe to shore, as recommended by the ORCA and OPHEA programs (both headquarters are on Eglinton Ave., Toronto), that were funded by taxpayer dollars and sold to the Manitoba school boards as well as all Ontario School Boards. (They teach putting on a PFD in the water too, that killed an RCMP officer, Lake Okanagan, June 3, 2005.) A small percentage of victims sink immediately (heavy boots etc.) Most struggle in the water for varying lengths of time; but are unable to get out after canoes and kayaks capsize, and they eventually die, wearing a PFD or not.

In her letter of October 29, 2004 to me, A. Anne McLellan acknowledges reading: "In a horrible tragedy, 2 eleven year old girl guides died...deliberately murdered, cruelly and intentionally...canoes and kayaks as deadly as possible so they can sell their instruction scam", in my February 3, 2004 correspondence to her, resulting now in about 50 canoe and kayak deaths in Canada since Feb. 3, 2004. But she says this huge rate of death during the few warm months, (Over 350 dead since the August 1994 Canadian Coast Guard Study), innocent victims dying in pain and terror, and families destroyed, is not worthy of concern.

She refuses to even check into these deaths that exceed the recent London Terrorist bombings. She writes: "You may wish to bring your safety concerns...to: Mr. Peter Garapick", who is named in the February 3rd correspondence: "Superintendents Garapick, Churchill, and counsel F. Cote appear to be particularly involved in this murder program...sponsored the deadliest use of canoes and kayaks, resulting in hundreds of Canadian deaths...This Canadian Coast Guard study was covered up."

I recommend a Search on the internet using "Google", to find "MP Samuel Plimsoll". Mr. Plimsoll accused wealthy ship owners circa 1870 of overloading ships for extra profit, while essentially "murdering" innocent sailors when these unseaworthy and over-insured vessels sank. Eventually the Disraeli government passed the Merchant Shipping Act in 1876. Mr. Plimsoll was repeatedly and maliciously prosecuted for defamatory libel by the greedy ship owners. These libel actions threatened to destroy him and his family.  I have included this information in many emails to A. Anne McLellan, Transport Canada, the OPP and RCMP. The Canadian canoe and kayak death rate is about 1000 times higher than the death rate for British sailors in 1870, and 100 times greater than any car in exposure hours. This Canadian Canoe Murder Scandal is the most deadly in the history of any developed country.

Any Two normal 10 year old girls from any school in Canada can rescue themselves and large disabled adults in seconds, without any previous instruction or experience. No canoe and kayak instructors following their deadly, fraudulent and criminal instruction can do this.

No OPP officer can do this either, unlike the 10 year old girls, and all OPP (and RCMP) officers will admit to this in any court in Canada. They know that a flooded canoe having no buoyancy on the beam ends cannot hold their body weight upright, and will only re-capsize if they try to paddle the flooded canoe. They know that $25 air bags with 80 lbs. of buoyancy allow any 10 year old girls to rescue themselves and anyone else without instruction and experience; but no canoe and kayak instructors can do this. All reasonable authors agree. Otherwise a flooded canoe would have to be an anti-gravity machine, in order to provide buoyant force on the beam ends, to be stable enough to be paddled upright with the weight of the paddler inside!
I polled OPP and RCMP officers several years ago, and found only two who at first said that they could paddle a flooded canoe, but then admitted they usually re-capsized within 10 feet. The others agreed that it was a ridiculous notion immediately.

A. Anne McLellan allows authorities at Transport Canada to deny the means to escape a cruel and terrifying death in the water, contradicting: (a) The Coast Guard study, August, 1994. (b) The famous Canadian canoeist Bill Mason reversed his traditional rescue ideas after 12 boys died at once in 1978, stating that canoe rescues simply cannot work, in his last book: "canoe over canoe...I have since changed my mind..." (Song of the Paddle,1988, p.126). A conclusion C.E.S. Franks reached before Temiskaming, in The Canoe and White Water, University of Toronto Press, 1977, p.123: "...nearly useless...On a stormy lake where upsets are likely to occur, the water is often too rough and choppy." (c) The US Military Kayaking Study 1994: "basic, no nonsense...dramatically increase...safety and...capabilities..." (d) The Transportation Safety Board of Canada Report Number M93W0008 "2.8 Emergency and Safety Equipment: The side sponsons and/or paddle floats 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." A. Anne McLellan and the others markedly depart from the standard of a reasonably prudent person, contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada.

From Feb. 3, 2004 correspondence to McLellan: "Victims have been saved from the water by buoyant objects for thousands of years. City waterfronts...rings and other buoyant objects..People who fall in the water do not usually wear a PFD! And wearing one, like those 2 little Girl Guides, will not get them out of the water and save their lives...All other consumer goods in Canada are sold by required safety!"

Six days after the 3 boys were lured to their cruel and agonizing deaths, in pain and terror, north of Winnipeg, on May 26, 2005, Mr. Bryant arranged for Mr. Kwinter and the OPP to charge me with publishing a defamatory libel, to protect Liberal A. Anne McLellan from a summons (and embarrassing public exposure in the media for the Liberal government) issued at the Barrie Courthouse Hearing, June 1, 2005, on the charge 220 (b) CCC.

The OPP know that this is a malicious prosecution, fabricating evidence, contrary to s.137 CCC, to protect Liberal McLellan's deadly behavior and cover-up propaganda at the Barrie Judicial Hearing and elsewhere. (I have advised many officers and one superintendent at the OPP for 5 years about canoe and kayak deaths and over 160 deaths). This action against me has prevented me from contacting the victims' families in Manitoba, and about 20 other families of dead victims, who died in pain and terror this past Summer. This action has prevented me from continuing to attempt to save these degraded victims (contrary to s. 262 CCC) by pointing out these ongoing, deliberate, intentional, cruel and sadistic killings of Canadian citizens to McLellan, Transport Canada and all other concerned parties, including media. This evidence meets the test of culpable homicide (R. v. Nette) and mens rea for second degree murder. All of my telephone calls, emails, and facsimiles warning McLellan and the others, provide my mailing and email addresses, and telephone number, in the hope that McLellan and the others will communicate with me regarding any questions about immediately stopping these horrible killings.

Obviously it is impossible to discuss these cruel, intentional and ongoing killings of Canadian men, women and children without this information appearing to be defamatory regarding the perpetrators! These killings are afterall, obviously cruel and sadistic, involving the deliberate endangerment and deaths of young children.

This is the largest mass murder scandal in the history of Canada, and all of these deaths are among the most cruel and agonizing in human imagination, killing individual victims and small groups during the two months and the few warm weekends of a Canadian summer. This number of victims since the Canadian Coast Guard Study of 1994, intending to prevent these deaths, exceeds the Air India tragedy, that was previously the largest mass murder scandal in Canada.

Despite all of my attempts to save these lives (note the correspondence of February 3, 2004 received and acknowledged by McLellan in her October 29, 2004 letter to me), McLellan and Transport Canada insist on continuing to cause horrible pain and suffering to thousands of Canadians affected by these deaths. Many families believe that their loved ones actually contributed to their own deaths, due to Degrading Propaganda regarding dead victims; unaware of the 2 ten year old girls who are able to save themselves and others without instruction or experience, far superior to the most expert canoe instructor.

All of my communication to McLellan and Transport Canada et al. has been intended to persuade them to stop these cruel killings as soon as possible, pointing out historical precedent, the basic duty and honour attached to human lifesaving, and the very real danger to McLellan and other public authorities that they will be perceived in the history books and by all Canadians as cruel killers etc. It will be noted that many times I have pointed out the lack of remorse among instructor groups, for example, hoping that McLellan and Transport Canada will read that and reflect on their own behavior. I have pointed out the Nazi cold water experiments, (80 cold water prosecutions at Nuremberg, the cold water experiments stopping after the Nazis determined that airmen in the Battle of Britain needed a failsafe means to get out of the water to survive); but Transport Canada has denied a failsafe means to live for over 350 Canadians since 1994, and continues to murder them in cold water in pain and terror. I had hoped that they would see the need to save Canadian lives, not leave them to die in cold water! I have pointed out the money to be made from fraudulent canoe and kayak instruction. I have tried to keep this simple for them to understand. See: http://www.sponsonguy.ca/history.html      (Copy and Paste in your Browser.)

Apparently they believe that the cover of their own Degrading Propaganda will preserve and protect them in continuing to propagate these sadistic deaths. The standard of all reasonable Canadian citizens would be to save these innocent Canadian men, women and children. There is no higher calling for any citizen. Nor any greater reward.

It is difficult for a reasonable person to comprehend how Liberal government officials could be so arrogant to not take these warnings seriously, and compound their moral and legal culpability by using the OPP to further degrade the victims, calling this program of sadistic and needless death "libel": Using degrading propaganda to continue to make canoes and kayaks as deadly as possible, and sadistically kill in 2005 about the same numbers of victims as in 2004, (26 dead in Canada, 23 dead in canoes, and 12 of the dead in Ontario.) Ontario usually has nearly half of the total dead victims in Canada annually.

1. Significantly, all RCMP, OPP and Toronto police officers sympathize with this terrible crime against society, by the governments of Ontario and Canada.
2. The OPP has again been used by the Ontario government to propagate killings of Ontario citizens; but this time these orders from above are not directed against First Nation people protecting their burial ground, these orders are directed against all citizens, including all Ontario school boards regarding fraudulent and deadly canoe programs, as my emails have always indicated.
3. It is no surprise that police officers are sympathetic. The OPP has known about this since year 2000 and over 160 Canadian deaths. But OPP officers must follow orders. In this case, from powerful Liberal government officials.

The arrogance and cruelty of treating all of these strong warnings as "Libel", in the face of the Degradation of the victims, the Propaganda that denies the truth of 2 ten year old girls, and the Deliberate fraud and falsehood of the "super-race of canoe and kayak instructors", is a crime that no other governments in the developed world have managed to perpetrate in modern history!

Publishing a defamatory libel (s. 301 in the Criminal Code) has been found unconstitutional in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and the Supreme Court of Canada in 1992 (since the "libel" is not contested as false, nor is the truth contested by the Crown, infringing on the right to freedom of thought and expression guaranteed under section 2 (b) of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.) The right to warn of the horror of these criminal canoe and kayak deaths is protected by the Charter. Especially these warnings extending to Liberal Ministers of Public Safety: Kwinter (Ontario) and McLellan (Canada). McLellan is Deputy PM so she has the power to have Transport Canada stop these terrible crimes immediately if she wishes. It is a murderous cover-up for the Liberals, who Justice Gomery is considering "may have corrupted the 'non-partisan and professional character of the civil service'"...(Globe and Mail, Sept. 10, 2005, p.1)

I have warned McLellan, Kwinter, Transport Canada, Bryant, Cotler (all good Liberals) and others for over a year, (Transport Canada and the OPP for 5 years and over 160 deaths), in the strongest terms stating: When Canadian citizens realize over 700 have died since Air India through violent and agonizing deaths in canoes and kayaks, by means of propaganda and deliberate programs to make them as deadly as possible, Canada will be very angry. Foolishly they have not heeded these warnings, but have arrogantly called them "libel".

The right to warn of the horror of these criminal canoe and kayak deaths is protected by the Charter.
The Duty to Warn Citizens at Risk is the Law!

*If you think that these huge numbers of dead Canadians (many are children) dying in pain and terror in the 2 Summer months and a few warm weekends, somehow deserved this cruel, agonizing death, you believe the Liberal Party propaganda that Transport Canada publishes.

Liberals want to cover-up yet another scandal, after the Sponsorship scandal pointing at them.

All of my email warnings to them were also sent to the OPP and RCMP, who normally would have charged these elected officials, under numerous offences in the Criminial Code, including s. 220 (b) Criminal Negligence Causing Death. Any reasonable person will understand that the grieving loved ones of these innocent victims will likely refer to these officials as "sadistic child murderers" and worse, once they understand the full story:

1. Victims Are Degraded To Be Blamed For Their Own Deaths; Whereas Any 10 Year Old Girls Without Previous Experience or Instruction Can Easily Rescue Themselves and Many Others From Deadly Waters, Far Superior To The Most Expert Instructor. Grieving families are similarly degraded (somehow their grief was the fault of their loved one); and deprived of their legal rights and community sympathy.

2. A "Super-race" of canoeists and kayakers is supposed to exist, far superior to the victims, but in fact the super-race cannot rescue themselves or anyone else from the water using a capsized flooded canoe, unlike the 10 year old girls. To become a member of the "super-race", much expensive instruction must be purchased by the public; although it cannot save the purchaser in the water, no matter how "expert", or thousands of dollars spent, or years of practice.

All this is at the expense of grieving families who are further tortured by Canadian Liberal government propaganda that their loved ones were somehow "inadequate" or deserving of their cruel fate: drowning in an agonizing manner in terror and fear of never seeing their families again. Veterinarians and the SPCA helped ban Leg-hold traps that drown fur-bearing mammals, for the same cruel suffering. Canadian Government officials and instructors, despite the most powerful weekly email reminders of their cruel actions for 7 months, (and having received other regular warnings since year 2000), continued to torture about 25 innocent Canadian citizens to death in 2005. A copious record of this exists in the Courthouse of Barrie, Ontario.

3. Transport Canada and the Canoe and Kayak Instructors lobby groups have been conducting this murder scam for over 20 years, killing over 700 Canadians since Air India, and killing over 350 Canadians since the Sponson Airbag Study August 1994 by the Canadian Coast Guard, that recommended airbags for canoes and kayaks; but was destroyed. The Canadian Coast Guard Whistleblower was punished. I have the Transport Canada records. Degrading Propaganda has been financed by the Canadian government to spread these "murders" in such high numbers. Propaganda is essential to perpetuate, propagate and spread these murders, as in Nazi Germany and elsewhere. I have records of expert instructors, police officers and others admitting that they cannot save themselves; whereas at first they will say that they can, and the victims just needed more (expensive) instruction. Victims are degraded in the eyes of the public and media, as was proved at Nuremberg. This is the only way for a deadly scam to propagate (same Latin root as the word propaganda.) Thousands of Innocent, Grieving Citizens, connected to the dead, have been degraded and cheated of their legal rights.

NOTE:

a) It is impossible to degrade these victims unless a "super-race" is fabricated, to whom the victims are "inferior". The super-race need not be an ethnic or racial entity, merely a group that is "superior" so the victims did not "measure up" and died due to their own failings. Until the level of degradation is significant, most killers find it unpleasant and difficult to kill these otherwise completely innocent victims, of all ages and cultural groups. Also, society will not tolerate the killings until government propaganda has sufficiently degraded the victims so that their deaths, no matter how cruel and agonizing, no matter that they are the children of someone in Canada, are accepted. The victims are to blame when they are sufficiently degraded.

b) All OPP officers and all reasonable Canadian citizens can see that this bogus canoe and kayak super-group cannot rescue themselves or anyone else, unlike Canadian 10 year olds with no deadly and fraudulent instruction, nor previous experience.

c) This fraudulent Transport Canada Murder Scam, that punished the Canadian Coast Guard Search and Rescue Officer August 1994 for whistle-blowing on this scam over 350 deaths ago, has been covered-up by McLellan since February 3, 2004 as her letter to me, October 29, 2004 states. She has now allowed about 45 Canadian deaths and climbing, a greater number than SARS or the London terrorist bombing victims.

d) These officials, who rely on propaganda, not truth, to continue to kill, express no remorse; unlike the subjects in the famous Milgram psychology experiments. These officials treat the victims and their families as if they deserved to suffer, although they represent no ethnic group, only a multi-cultural group of canoe and kayak victims. But once these victims are degraded by the government propaganda (funded by millions of taxpayer dollars over the years), these government officials show no remorse of any kind, like the Nazis on trial at Nuremberg, or the perpetrators of other holocausts throughout history.

e) Numerous OPP and RCMP officers have suggested that my unique study of such modern State cruelty in Canada, degrading and cruelly killing a specific group of citizens without ethnic or racial bias; but targeting them only on the basis of canoe and kayak use (accounting for a high percentage of child victims), deserves a book and/or a documentary film. Eventually that will happen. The grieving families need help, especially when they realize that they have been tricked by government propaganda into accepting that their loved one played a part in their own death. They will feel very guilty for not protesting more, on behalf of the innocent deceased. This is the cruel and overwhelming power of Government Propaganda. The guilt and anger soon to visit these innocent families is a uniquely horrible consequence of degrading innocent Canadian citizens by State officials, against the Canadian Charter of Rights. The families are tortured twice: by the cruel death first , then the government propaganda that their loved one "should have known better."

*Normally, state officials in Canada such as Ministers of Public Safety and Attorneys General do not markedly depart from the standard of a reasonably prudent person, and they quickly move to save drowning and terrorized Canadian children and others of all ages, like other decent Canadian citizens. Normally, state officials elected by Canadian citizens want to show that they are good citizens too, and would not for a second condone the agonizing deaths, alone, and in pain and terror of over 700 Canadians (many children) since Air India.

Unless of course they are deliberately and intentionally acting so cruelly because they believe these victims deserved to die a horrible death, according to their own taxpayer-funded propaganda to degrade these victims, and to protect the Liberal Party from more scandal. Despite the truth of two little 10 year old girls without instruction or previous experience who can immediately rescue themselves and others dying in the water, unlike "the super-race" of canoe and kayak "experts", who cannot even rescue themselves in a flooded canoe.*

In the UK in 1994 a kayak instructor killed 2 boys and 2 girls on a school outing (all 16 years of age). The instructor could not keep them out of the water without airbag sponsons to stabilize the craft. He was convicted of manslaughter after weeks of intense press coverage demanding criminal prosecution. The Principle Marine Surveyor of the UK Coast Guard contacted me (I have his letter) asking how to prevent this again.

In Canada, Liberal Government propaganda ensures that over 350 dead victims are ignored by media and public opinion. I have warned all authorities for years that that their propaganda will eventually backfire when the truth is known. Justice Gomery and Canadians will be more outraged over 350 agonizing deaths than $350 million in a sponsorship scandal. The OPP and RCMP have refused to lay charges against these officials (but follow orders to maliciously prosecute anyone pointing this out.) They know that this is false and malicious. They have seen this fraudulent and deadly scam for 5 years! The best they can do is to tell me to write a book or make a film. They just follow orders. And watch the deliberate killings.

Fraudulent instruction jobs for the "super-race of canoe and kayak instructors" cannot nearly pay the economic costs (let alone the emotional costs) of 350 dead citizens. Justice Gomery needs to see this Liberal scandal!

Note Bene:

I remind everyone that all jurisdictions in Canada have Mandatory reporting requirements for children in danger. Also, warning Bryant, Kwinter and all others of their cruel and unlawful acts is not libel. S. 309 and s. 311 allow a defendent to establish a defence under s. 301 of "legal justification": publishing matter of public interest and public benefit that one reasonably believes to be true (309), and the published matter is true and for public benefit (311).

Also s. 310 allows fair comment on McLellan et al. re: performance of public duty, Transport Canada's wrong-doers, and the canoe and kayak lobby groups, including the deadly actions of the Canadian Safe Boating Council. Another defence is s.315, Publication in good faith for redress of wrong.

S. 300 and s. 301 have changed very little since enactment in 1892. Apparently they were enacted as a legal alternative to prevent duelling. According to the Intervenor's Statement by the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, R. v. Gill and Waugh, 1995, from which I derive these facts; I am only the eighth (8th) person in Canada charged under s. 301 since 1892!

Publishing defamatory libel (s. 301 in the Criminal Code) has been found unconstitutional in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and the Supreme Court of Canada in 1992 (since the "libel" is not contested as false, nor is the truth contested by the crown, infringing on the right to freedom of thought and expression guaranteed under section 2 (b) of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.)

The Law Reform Commission of Canada 1985 recommended criminal defamation be repealed due to doubtful constitutionality, particularly regarding mens rea, "complicated, uncertain, confusing, inconsistent" wording, adequate exiting civil remedies for defamation victims, the criminal sanction does not act as a deterrent, and duelling is not a contemporary problem.

Note the defence of Qualified Privilege, a social, legal and moral duty to furnish this information; although the perpetrators may regard the matter published as defamatory. This largest Murder scandal in Canadian History, larger than Air India, and this performance of Canadian government officials cannot possibly look "good". But the reputations of McLellan, 4 Transport Canada officials, and the Canoe and Kayak Instructors Lobby Groups are not as important as the agonizing deaths of over 25 Canadians a year, including children, who are all deliberately degraded in order to be blamed for their deaths.*

*The truth of 10 year old girls saving themselves and others without any instruction or experience, when no expert instructor can do this using the fraudulent instruction they sell to Canadians, is a public safety, moral and legal issue far outweighing the reputation of any government official who actively degrades these dead Canadians, to blame them for their own deaths!

The line between over 45 cases (and climbing) of criminal negligence causing death, a charge acknowledged to be serious and important to the safety of society by 4 Justices of the Peace and one Crown Attorney in Ottawa during the Winter of 2005, and second degree murder blurs; when the repeated warnings to state officials regarding reckless endangerment and these continuing, agonizing, and unlawful deaths, are ignored.

Duty to Warn:

The duty to warn vulnerable citizens is well established in law. Dr Bain was found negligent in not informing Mrs. Pittman regarding her HIV infected husband (Ontario 1994). All jurisdictions in Canada have legislation regarding mandatory reporting of risks to children. The protection of children and other vulnerable citizens, by civil duty to warn, is a well-established legal principle.

Canada's first Whisleblower law, C-25, first reading, is only 15 years late, after the US created the US Whistleblower law, after the Space Shuttle blew up dramatically after many warnings by engineers. With C-25 in place, Transport Canada, McLellan, et al. could not have killed or covered-up the killing of over 350 innocent Canadians in canoes and kayaks, punishing the Canadian Coast Guard SEARCH And RESCUE Whistleblower in August, 1994, maliciously prosecuting myself, and anyone else who blows the whistle!
Bill C-25
Disclosures to Outsiders:
S.13 A public servant may make a disclosure other than accordance with this Act if he or she believes on reasonable grounds that there is not sufficient time...a) a serious offence...is being or about to be committed by another public servant...or (b) another public servant is...doing anything or omitting to do anything...creates an imminent and serious danger to the life, health or safety of persons...

Canadian waters are always deadly if victims are denied a means of getting out immediately, 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)

This death rate is huge, considering that the Canadian canoe and kayak industry is so tiny, operating only 2 warm months and a few warm weekends every year. Reasonable citizens wonder why this industry does not try to sell more canoes and kayaks with built-in, easy, simple, failsafe self-rescue capability: $25 CO2 airbags below. The canoe/kayak rate of death is over 3 times the rate of death in the US, (not factoring in that they are paddled all year round south of the border by a much larger population). And over 100 times the death rate of cars, in use hours, for the Canadian population.

(The US death rate is also high. US Coast Guard report 071-01: "Canoes and kayaks have by far the highest fatality rates per million hours of exposure (.42) as any other boat type". Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation of the U.S. House of Representatives, May 15, 2001, BOAT/U.S. "A total of 105 canoeists and kayakers drowned in 1998. Canoes and kayaks have the highest fatality rate of all boat types ñ double the rate of personal watercraft and 4 times higher than open motorboats.")

Without these large airbags, the girls would have no means to escape the water and would eventually die of hypothermia. These pictures were to be published in the Canadian Recreational Canoeing Association's "Kanawa" magazine, by 2 separate editors: in September 2000, "Kanawa Ken", and February 2001, Judy Lord, who replaced Ken. The magazine was not allowed to publish this article and these pictures, as this would negate CRCA/ORCA instruction programs that have no canoe rescues, except to paddle a swamped canoe to shore (impossible) as the dead Girl Guides and 3 Boys north of Winnipeg found out in great pain and terror May 20, 2005.

One hour later, two of these Girl Guides died in pain and terror, suffering deaths that are among the most cruel deaths in human imagination. Whereas Any 10 Year Old Girls Without Previous Experience or Instruction Can Easily Rescue Themselves and Many Others From Deadly Waters, Far Superior To The Most Expert Instructor.

"Hello, I am a mother who lost her child to hypothermia May 31/2003 and you and everyone else who thinks that canoeing is safe is crazy your telling me that a life jacket and rope is enough bull my 11 year old died because they could not get back into the canoe after capsizing in Lake Huron how can you close the door on these safety sponsons when they really work. Why should they not be on every canoe that camps or organizations take our children out in as safety feature kids that have no idea how to get back in, or even the strength to do it. I am a boater myself and as a adult in a bad situation could not get back into a everturned canoe.I am fine with adults making the decision to go out but to play god with lives is crazy when these safety devices can save lives...but realisticly sponsons work, unfortunately it will take the lives of many more before something is done to regulate whos going in these canoes and what safety devices should be used when it comes to children, the canoe and kayak association as well as the government knows that these water crafts are dangerous for adults never mind sending our kids out in them up antil my daughters accident i had no idea how unsafe they were and how little safety precautions are taken not enough in my opinion.I love the water and still do but do we as parents know how unsafe it is out there people must be informed about this.I dare everyone to try to get 3 people back into a canoe adults not even children and then you will know what kind of a chance a child has...do some cheaking of your own about all the dealths that could have been stopped by another safety device being installed whether his or maybe the government should take the time to invent something on there own. Thank-You for reading my post Shelley Mitchell"

*It should be carefully noted that the 2 young girls paddling a fully flooded canoe standing up have no previous experience. But they can easily maneuver this canoe to rescue a large and disabled adult or 2 from the water, since the  gunwale is nearly level with the water surface and they can easily slide into the flooded craft. With airbags set normally, like the lower airbag in the picture, the canoe is self-bailing by leaning on one airbag to pour most of the water out. But the canoe is fully maneuverable, rock steady and can be paddled at 2 knots by these 7 and 10 year old girls with no previous experience, even fully flooded.

Without these large airbags, the girls would have no means to escape the water and would eventually die of hypothermia.    These pictures were to be published in the Canadian Recreational Canoeing Association's "Kanawa" magazine, by 2 separate editors: in September 2000, "Kanawa Ken", and February 2001, Judy Lord, who replaced Ken. The magazine was not allowed to publish this article and these pictures, as this would negate CRCA/ORCA instruction programs that have no canoe rescues, except to paddle a swamped canoe to shore (impossible) as the dead Girl Guides and 3 Boys north of Winnipeg May 20, 2005 found out, in pain and terror.  (I have these documents, the correspondence and the article for "Kanawa".) This false, degrading, and deadly instruction has been recognized for many years by famous authors: The Canadian canoeist Bill Mason reversed his traditional rescue ideas after 12 boys died at once in 1978, stating that canoe rescues simply cannot work, in his last book: "canoe over canoe...I have since changed my mind..." (Song of the Paddle,1988, p.126). A conclusion C.E.S. Franks reached before Temiskaming, in The Canoe and White Water, University of Toronto Press, 1977, p.123: "...nearly useless...On a stormy lake where upsets are likely to occur, the water is often too rough and choppy."

All modern countries have a Level Flotation Law for small boats under 20 feet long, except for canoes and kayaks, that are exempted from this safety requirement by Transport Canada, despite the 1994 Canadian Coast Guard study. If you type "Level Flotation Standard" into Google, you will find within the Office of Boating Safety, Transport Canada website: "44. While floating in calm, clear water, the boat shall not list more than 30° with the weight redistributed." You will eventually find the same law in Australia and the United States, for example: USCG Level Flotation Standard  33 CFR 183. Issued April 18, 1977; Effective August 1, 1978  "Establishes level flotation standards on rowboats and outboard boats less than 20 feet in length, the boats most often involved in swamping and capsizing accidents, so that the boat will float level when swamped and provide a safe platform until rescue."

The above picture is what the Level Flotation Law looks like for canoes. The $25 CO2 powered Airbags sponsons inflate in a second, like airbags in cars. Below, these early Airbags (sponsons) were invented in 1987, before car airbags were factory-equipped on even the cheapest cars. These airbags below should be larger, and CO2 inflated for fool-proof self-rescue capability in seconds. The larger airbags enable these little girls to paddle fully flooded to a disabled adult victim who can easily crawl over a flooded gunwale, and then they can paddle the adult victim (even more than one victim with the larger sponsons) to shore, at 2 knots standing up (but preferably sitting down.) The girls are only standing up to simply demonstrate the rock solid stability of a canoe with Airbags (sponsons) and a ton (2,000 lbs.) of water ballast.

Once the victim is inside the flooded canoe, the large $25 CO2 airbag sponsons permit the canoe to be self-bailing, simply by leaning on one airbag. Note that these $25 CO2 Airbags are normally both fitted like the lower large airbag, in the large airbag pictures. One large airbag  is deliberately set higher than normal to permit  total flooding over the gunwale. Otherwise total flooding over either gunwale is impossible, without the weight of a disabled victim crawling over about 3 inches of exposed freeboard above the water, due to the buoyant force of the large airbag  (over 80 lbs.)  It can be easily understood by reasonable persons that canoes and kayaks need not be intentionally so dangerous; and in fact can be superior rescue craft in stability, maneuverability, cost effectiveness, and capacity: Superior to any other small watercraft known to man.

These $25 airbags are concealed out of sight before deployment, within the gunwales of canoes or within protective, streamlined containers on kayaks, weighing about 1 lb. each.


It is also understood by reasonable people that canoe airbags are not sold now because the government prevents $25 CO2 airbags; but permits expensive, fraudulent, difficult and deadly canoe instruction that would have no market if $25 CO2 airbags were factory equipped. Many instructors willingly endanger and kill  innocent citizens and their children for fraudulent instruction dollars. Others will do it freely. Mr. Bryant, some Transport Canada officials, A. Anne McLellan and Mr. Kwinter, among others, allow citizens to be defrauded, tortured and murdered; using taxpayer dollars to sell this program, through the Trillium Foundation, and other government sponsors like Transport Canada. Some Canadians will kill others eagerly, if simply permitted. All scientific research, like the Milgram work, acknowledges this kind of behavior in these circumstances.

"I am Austin Davis. My life was saved by your floats. [See article in Sea kayaker Dec 97] There was no way in my situation that any other means of recovery would have saved me or allowed me to get home upright in my hypothermic condition. Your opinion about the rolls and paddle floats mirror my real life experience. Thanks for the gear that saved my life. I hope the article in sea kayaker helps your cause." 

Austin survived far offshore in cold water at night when his sailboat suddenly sank. His story in Seakayaker above relates how large breaking waves smashed his face onto the kayak, but he managed to attach the sponsons, and with no spray skirt or pump, paddle the flooded kayak toward the distant shore (his spare paddle was secured to the kayak.) Only 3 items saved him. Remove sponsons, paddle or kayak and he would have fed the sharks. (No other kayak device could have stabilized a flooded kayak, to paddle to safety in large breaking waves.) 

"...wave suddenly broke over me. It slapped my face onto the deck...I lost...paddle and boat...With the sponsons providing stability and the back-up paddle...Never mind the lack of sprayskirt..." (p.47) 

"I find it ironic that all the kayakers I know who own sponsons also have reliable rolls, but that none of the many kayakers I know who do not have a roll own sponsons. Some don't even carry bilge pumps." 

Page 7 in Canoe and Kayak magazine's 1998 Buyers Guide: "And as Fred Young said, increased skill and experience permit paddlers to expose themselves to added risk. It may be hard to accept the fact that the danger actually increases with skills and experience. Chan Zwanzig, an expert kayaker and proprietor of Wave Sport, believes that "statistically, the exposure levels rise with each newly minted expert paddler." 


 


The paddlefloat actually is dangerous to paddlers after capsize because 
they have no paddle to brace with, to remain upright while struggling to retrieve the paddle, which is behind them in the capsizing conditions. They simply recapsize.

Sponsons permit re-entry into a much more stable boat, ( belly-up on kayak after deploying sponsons, rotate into seat, and paddle to safety.) No capsizing while trying to pump out, fit sprayskirt, or other risky tricks in capsizing conditions.

The focus on getting people back into the same kayak, without extra sponson stability, in the same capsizing conditions, obviously only leads to further capsizes and deaths.

Kayak Safety depends on Sponsons to create a safer kayak, one foot wider with a lower Centre of Gravity (inevitable water in the cockpit acts as ballast), to provide re-capsize protection getting to Safety.
Coast Guard Zodiac Rescue boats use large sponsons for stability safety, (and their displacement hulls below the sponsons act as ballast.)

 "Hand pumping a narrow kayak after a capsize presents some practical balance problems, since it requires the use of the hands both for pumping and balancing. Tricks such as using the pump with one hand while bracing with the paddle across your shoulder and down the other arm cannot be relied on in rough conditions. Emergency sponsons deployed early in the emergency make far more sense." p.38 (J. Dowd, Sea Kayaking, 3rd edition) 

"Basic ocean equipment (sponsons) in view of the significant safety margin..." U.S. Military Evaluation. 

"SEA WINGS (sponsons) are simply the best and easiest-to-use self-rescue device on the market...Once you have the Sea Wings fitted and adjusted, its' advantages over a 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...without any problems.
Even my larger, less agile friends were able...
whereas a paddlefloat, even in calm conditions, is not...something everyone...
How often have you seen...only to capsize again...trying to free their paddle from the bungies..."  (B. Huszar, Seakayaker, Winter '93, p.34)
