Canada And Its Politically Appointed Judges
This is not to say that there are not some honest judges in Canada or in British Columbia but those judges are not permitted to preside on a case unless the Chief Justice permits it. When a crooked decision is needed for a political or business reason, the Chief Justice or Chief Judge has a group of crooked judges he knows he can rely on.
A number of Canadian legal commentators, including Ontario Justice Marshall and British Columbia Justice Bouck, have written on these issues. Some suggest that to prevent this evil the Chief Judges should be elected by the other judges and for a fixed term in the office such as five or six years. Others suggest that all judges should be elected including the Chief Judge just like politicians are elected. In the United States judges are elected – at the State level. There have been corrupt judges who take bribes and fix cases. They are often caught, prosecuted, and put in jail. In Canada, there have been corrupt judges and they are often exposed by their victims but there are no recorded cases of a judge being prosecuted for corruption on the bench in Canada.
In the context of the WaterWarCrimes, the Chretien/Harcourt/Clark/Campbell regimes used a number of crooked judges to do their dirty work and some of these were caught, exposed, and, then, dropped dead – or were they murdered?

Not All Judges Are Crooked
The insiders with the Governments of British Columbia and Canada were attempting to railroad Mr. Carten and their plans were sent sideways and Justice Peter Leask was assigned to the case.
The insiders tried one more tactic and sent Ms. Joanne Platt into the courtroom to commit a serious criminal offence and try to persuade Justice Peter Leask to join her but Leask would have no part of it.
The next hearing day, after Mr. Leask had showed that he would not bend to intimidation by Joanne Platt, the prosecuting lawyer, Mr. Tim Stokes, made a motion that Mr. Justice Leask withdraw from the case but Justice Leask refused.
Mr. Justice Leask is one judge in British Columbia who takes his Oath of office seriously.
The RCMP and the judicial mafia
Shortly after the RCMP set up its Integrated Market Enforcement Team (IMET), in Vancouver, a Vancouver superior court judge quashed a warrant IMET had relied upon to seize certain documents as part of an investigation of a stock market fraud. The story was reported in the Vancouver newspaper which prompted telephone call to Inspector Macjer, the RCMP officer identified in the newspaper story.
Inspector Macjer was advised that the reason for the call to ask him was to ask him if he knew that the judge in question was one of the insiders that the insiders with the judiciary selected, from time to time, when they needed a special ruling. Inspector Macjer asked the caller to come to his office for an interview. The interview was attended by Inspector Macjer and by, then, Sergeant, Mike Ryan, now Inspector Ryan. As with most police matters, the exchange of information went one way. Nonetheless, while leaving the meeting and walking to the elevator, Inspector Macjer opened up, a little, and confessed that the RCMP were aware of a group that the RCMP called the “judicial mafia” that fixed cases and he related a story that while working under cover he learned that a judge had been bribed for as little as a “case of whiskey”.
This disclosure by Inspector Macjer was probably a big mistake for him “career-wise” because he left the force a few months later. RCMP officers have to be very careful talking candidly to the people they serve because the senior people at the RCMP know they are subject to political control and, like all senior bureaucrats, they are hostage to their jobs and pension security. However, the information is reliable and corroborates information from other sources.
Inspector Macjer, a graduate of Saint Mary’s University, in Halifax, was a credit to Canada and the RCMP. He was a key figure in the under cover operation carried out by the FBI and RCMP that finally put Vancouver lawyer/drug trafficker/money launderer, Martin Chambers, behind bars on a money laundering charge after the judicial mafia in Canada acquitted him on a cocaine importing charge through the mis-application of the rule of law set out in the case of R. v. O’Brien 1954 S.C.R. Chambers was known to the RCMP as a kingpin of organized crime in Western Canada.
There were nine judges on the panel in the Chambers case when he was acquitted and only one, Madam Justice L’Hereux Dube, had the integrity to give a straight judgment. Any competent first year law student can read the Chambers case and the O’Brien case and immediately see that the facts in O’Brien were completely different from the facts in Chambers and that court was not, in any way, legally bound to follow the O’Brien precedent as the Court fraudulently asserted in the Chambers judgment. The real issues in the Chambers case are how was it possible to get the court to reject common sense and follow a bogus line of reasoning allegedly deriving from the O’Brien case.
BC Supreme Court Master John Horn:
“Mr. Carten, you have ruined everything”
Mr. Horn was given his job as a Master, court officer of the Supreme Court of British Columbia, by Premier Bill Vander Zalm, when the same Robert Edwards was Deputy Attorney General.
As he entered the court and approached his seat to preside at the hearing where Mr. Carten was under examination Mr. Horn uttered these telling words “Mr. Carten you have ruined everything”.
If the Federal Court permits the WaterWarCrimes lawsuit to proceed Mr. Horn will be examined under oath as to what he meant by those words, what Mr. Carten ruined, and who did he allegedly ruin it for?
Communications Security Establishment Canada and the “judicial mafia”
Several years ago, a retired employee of the Canadian Department of National Defence, quietly advised that he and others on the inside of the “listening operations” were aware of a “judicial mafia” that was linked to certain lawyers and business people in Canada that fixed certain cases. A similar conversation was held with a retired Canadian Air Force General. The problem these people have is they know the secrets but it is against the law for them to reveal them because they have signed secrecy agreements.
Vancovuer City Police Department & Political Control
The officer in question stated that he was told by his superiors to file the report because there was no intention to prosecute.
When the judiciary and politicians go bad the police lose faith and go bad also.
A few years later, the Vancouver City Police came under the controls of an ex-RCMP Officer – Jamie Graham who, a few years after that, moved on to become Police Chief at Victoria City Police where, under his leadership, the investigation into the crimes of fraud, perjury and obstruction of justice by the Ministry of the Attorney General for British Columbia was shut down.
How Did This Happen ? :
Pierre Trudeau re-invented the Privy Council as a supreme secret governing body for Canada that includes non elected persons, such as the Chief Justice, and sets much government policy. In doing so, he diminished the role of parliament and the elected representatives of the people.
Pierre Trudeau brought the RCMP under the control of the Privy Council, by amendments to the RCMP Act that put the RCMP under the direct control of the Minister, read Deputy and assistant Deputy Minister. In the Canadian and British system of government, Ministers are generally told what to do by their deputy and assistant deputy ministers. Strong independent Ministers are a rarity and easily sabotaged by the bureaucracy.
Pierre Trudeau began the process to establish the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, CSIS, that spies on Canadians and reports to the Federal Government.
Pierre Trudeau established the Canadian Judicial Council that set up the judiciary as an autonomous, unaccountable body that was responsible for policing itself – an idea that never works. The Council is made up of Chief Justices and Associate Chief Justices who are carefully selected to insure their compatibility with the agenda of the Government, not the inherited rights of a free and independent people but the civil rights granted and circumscribed by the civil government.
Pierre Trudeau also created the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms which appears to protect civil rights but, in law, gives judges powers they never previously had, thereby, creating a judicial oligarchy that soon set about to legislate an agenda the people never voted for and never would vote for and who used the Charter to protect the criminal element at the expense of decent citizens. The police were powerless. The judges were supreme (or so they thought). The lawyers learned to play the new game.
Although Pierre Trudeau was highly intelligent, he had little practical experience in business, the legal profession or in grass roots politics. Mr. Trudeau did not understand that the idealistic structures he designed for the Canadian political, judicial, police, and legal architecture would soon become filled with flawed human beings with their natural tendency to act corruptly when they think they can get away with it.
Canada soon found itself with an out of control “judiciary“, an ineffective national police force, and rampant political, judicial and legal corruption.
The Judge in the Communist State: The View from Within – Otto Ulc
An excellent book that provides useful insights into Canada’s system was written in 1972 by the Honourable Otto Ulc, a judge in the former soviet state of Czechoslovakia entitled “The Judge in the Communist State, the View from Within”.
Mr. Ulc describes a system where, like in Canada, judges were, under the country’s constitution. legally independent but, in fact, they were controlled by the Communist Party.
According to Mr. Ulc, in many cases, there was no political interference but, when there was a case where the Communist Party had an interest, the judge was told what to do and, sometimes, the Party actually wrote the decision and the judge simply signed it.
This is the kind of system that has developed in Canada and no one should be surprised by it especially when one recognizes the role that Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, a self admitted communist, had in creating much of the judicial architecture of Canada in the late 20th century.
Further, students of organizational psychology and systems analysis have long observed that organizations and systems tend to exhibit similar behavior patterns regardless of where they are located. So, a politically appointed judiciary in Canada will, over time, tend to tend to behave in patterns similar to a politically appointed judiciary in soviet Czechoslovakia. Simply by stating, in a constitution, that a judge is independent of the executive and legislative branch of government does not make him or her independent of that branch and does not insure he or she is going to act independently.
A good rule of thumb to determine if a judge is acting independently is analyze a decision and, if the judge did not follow the law when that law was plainly evident from the legal submissions then the judge probably was acting on inside instructions. The judge will usually give oral or written reasons trying to justify the decision, in legal terms, but a competent lawyer or legally trained persons can usually pick out obvious errors when they occur and these should be closely analyzed because they are evidence of that can later be used to expose the judge.
For example, a judge in British Columbia had a habit of selling real estate to insiders at a lower than market value without allowing the property to be properly exposed to the market. He did it in at least three different cases. Judicial sales are intended to get the best value for the property so the court should be have been trying to assist to expose the property to the market to obtain the market value.
By analyzing and documenting these cases, it was easy to prove to an observer that the judge was systematically favouring insiders. His actions were exposed and circulated among various police, judicial and political authorities and the judge was removed from the bench.
