  • Dear violent antifa / anarchists , kiss your anonymity goodbye .

    Meow everyone. My readers as supporters,  and detractors alike,  have known for years that I am a photographer who specializes in street action . One area is protests . I have been shooting protests for many years now, much to the dislike of the radical left, the anarchists  and now, the rebranded antifa idiots. Most don’t care that I am out there , while others make a rather large production of my being out and about .  Some even want to run me out of town .Its fun listening to them play the  oppression card when it suites them.

     

    I have taken great pride in my ability to photograph most of the riots these idiots organized and participated in . One of the big accomplishments  was the ability to put names to faces , or in the case of these anarchists , partial faces , since like the cowards they are, they love to hide their faces , thinking that this affords them a certain anonymity . For a while , it did. However, being a patient person I have always been, I was always able  get to the shot I wanted , of my targeted subject, masked and unmasked . Of course, with a new crop of losers showing up, the older, more experienced criminals pass on what they have learned , things like hiding your face . There was of course this cat and mouse game that took place between myself and my anarchist opponents , but, as  seen here, the anarchists are easy to poke fun at and even mock :  

     

     

    Previously , when I photographed  someone , I had to put my images into my computer and look at the commonalities of each image , then compare then to my archived files to get a match . Yes, I have a 100% accuracy rate because even the smallest trait is enough to secure a match and  is extremely time consuming ,  but a masked face did present itself with some challenges. Oh, did you  notice I said DID ?

     

    Supporters and detractors alike, I now have the tools in my hot little hands that will forever render your silly little masks USELESS . Digital photography is basically an imaging computer . All cameras can take great images with the right person being the view finder . However, there does come a point where a run of the mill camera will just be able to do the desired job. That’s were I come .

     

    Let me introduce you to  my new toy :  ( not exactly as shown )

     

    This little baby looks like a regular camera, feels like a regular camera , even acts like a regular camera … except for one very important feature … ( what ? do you really think I am going to tell you all my secrets ) , with the simple press of a button ,  ,  it can see right through your mask .. plain as day . Yes, it is heavily modified , no, you cant buy it commercially in its modified form , and yes, its insanely expensive ( and insured of course ) . So, what are some of its features you may be asking ? Great question, I’m glad you asked . One great feature is this this camera  came with a very nice little option… when I shoot an image , through a secure wi-fi signal , the image gets sent to my computer located somewhere else and the work of identifying you starts the second I click the shutter . Since I have been shooting protests for a very long time, I have built up a sizable  archive of the who’s who of the scum bag world , and now, with a little computer wizardry , a really good camera and a few toys to go with it , I get to unmask your faces and show the whole world what anarchists really look like, will be able to identify you and put you out of the anarchy business . …. and all of this before you  get home . 

     

    So, ask yourself if you really want to ” draw ”  against me  :

     

     

    Dear anarchists, I take pride in my country and my loyalty to it is unquestionable . You as radical anarchists pose a serious security threat that is domestic terrorism .  The government has a ton of rules and regulations they have to follow to identify  you  … I don’t . 


  • Prepare yourselves, the anarchists are getting ready to smash and burn

    Meow everyone, I have , in previous articles suggested that every few years, we, in this city of Toronto have a riot that always involves anarchists . well, sadly, this year, it will be riot season.Yes,smashing ,looting and burning will be the usual activities, of this bunch of bone headed , brainless parasites.  Oh, wait, silly me, they are not anarchists anymore, but rather , rebranded as ANTIFA . Yes, I did write about this a short time ago and that story is found    here, here and here

     

    This rebranding I spoke of is to facilitate their new venture they want to  smash, that being the freedom of speech and expresssion movement that it the currant protest action.  There are two very distinct side to this , but for these guys, any opportunity to smash something, is an opportunity they gravitate to .

     

    Over the past several weeks, Toronto city hall has been a field laboratory for these anarchists  to test ideas and attack strategies , to see what works best. Since there is a new crop of escaped mental patients  ( anarchists ) these rock dwellers need to test out what they think will be most effective with respects to causing to most violence and destruction. the past few events , while violent, did not meet the expectations of some of this countries top and most dangerous and violent anarchists , so, the top dog himself came to town to ”  teach ” .

     

    The first lesson in smashy smashy is finding a cause to smash . One was provided to  them , but the ” smash ”  level was simply  not high enough to be worthy of anything more then some pushing, shoving and a few stolen hats and signs . Clearly, our smashing crybabies, need something to raise  the smashibility of their ” protest ” .. and one was, very generously , provided for them in this  upcoming event :

     

     

     

    This event is created by one of the people who is a public face against a recent piece of legislation called bill M-103 . Both sides are fanatical about this , an dafter attending several, of the protests around this bill, i see both sides as being polarized towards one stance . The anarchists , of course, see this as an opportunity to gravitate towards the side that is radical left leaning , so smashy smashy  is the only , viable solution.  Make no mistake , the anarchists are not interested in anti oppression as they call it, nor are they interested in any points of view that involve meaningful and intelligent dialogue . For then, its all about ” smash the state ” . 

     

    These rebranded anarchists now go on and try to tell you how accepting they are of EVERYONE , equally .They tell that they are not racists . Hmmm, so, what are to to believe . Will you believe what they WANT you to hear , or, will you believe what they say, when they think you’ re nor around, and listening ? Well, lets see just how inclusive they really are : 

     

    Ya, I bet you caught that right away too … with these morons, its always about the jews , this, jews that … but but but , I thought they said they were inclusive of everyone . 

     

    Ok, so now lets quickly review two past events. On march 14, there was a mini riot here in Toronto that , according the anarchists , was a complete failure on their part. They were greatly out numbers , hence , rendered ineffective . However, this was a research and development exercise to them as outlined here :

     

    The magnitude of this is HUGE. many will , or should know the name of Jaggi Singh . Singh is a Montreal based ,   urban terrorist of the worst kind. He was DIRECTLY involved in the G20 riots , leading them :

     

     

    This guy along with Alex Hundert , are considered the Popes of anarchy and extreme violence . So, Singh wrote a rather scathing review on what took place in both Toronto and Montreal  on March 14 . This report was , and will be VERY significant as i will show you shortly . Here is what he wrote :

     

     

    On April 01 2017, there was another such protest , and this time, it became violent almost from the first moment . However, there was also one VERY significant addition to that protest ….. Jaggi Singh was personally there to see it , and to guide it  as seen here :

     

    The above is a screen shot of a video shot with him . I am not linking the video here in order to protect the identity of the person who shot it as this guy is so dangerous, that he, and / or his anarchist scum buddies would try and track the shooter of the video down and  potentially cause serious harm .

     

     

    This leads us to what was recently posted as an event related to the subject at hand . Here is a screen shot showing link , to a planned ” protest  / counter protest ” . This is , however, is about as fishy as one can get, and , for those of us who follow these protests and in particular, these scum bag anarchists, this is about as obvious a trap as one can make it, with out actually calling it a trap : 

     

     

    For anyone who has been following these anarchists for years, we all know that their strategy  has always been one of divide , seize and attack. This ” event ” is exactly that . This is a clear attempt to divide protestors and corner some of them into a area for potential violence . However, the REAL purpose here is to thin police lines, forcing police to cover this , break away protests with police numbers assigned to the protest. This leave the main group now under policed , and legitimate protesters potentially unprotected  and much more vulnerable to attacks. This also leaves police in a much more dangerous position as a result of reduced numbers , meaning their own personal safety if now, by design, at much greater risk .  This is a sure way to ensure a prolonged , dangerously violent confrontation DOES take place .  Targets of this violence are of course those who oppose the anarchists view point , but in this case, I feel the the real intended targets would be the alternative media who cover and expose these people. Some members of the alternative media have already been targeted , but police were quick to respond before and real damage was done. This time, there would be a real potential; for serious injury to those,  police , as a result of intentionally being divided , cannot get to in time. 

     

    Jaggi Singh is a highly dangerous and violent anarchist. He has considerable resources available to him and a virtual bottomless pit of ready and willing anarchist ready to act at a moments notice . The events here in Toronto have been attended by several violent anarchist from Montreal already , sitting back , making mental notes , and planning accordingly . Its going to be a shit show very soon. The police had better be ready ad  not under estimate this group and what they can , and will do . I hope the G20 taught the police a thing or two. If not start reading and preparing. ……

     

    Here are two events that will be lead up events to the main riot event on July 01 .

     

     

    The anarchists are gong to be ready to act, smash and burn . will you as the good guys do something this time to stop them BEFORE they do this , or, are we going to see another G20 styled riot ?


  • The day we lost the city

    Meow everyone. A few weeks ago, I posted a short note that I was ( and am continuing to ) work on a huge story about the G20 that took place back in the summer of 2010 . I know , myself included, have , still , a lot of unanswered questions about what took place , and why ? However, what if I told you that this may have been a part of a far bigger, more sinister plan , and WE were to the one who were about to make this plan come to fruition.

     

    Yes this does sound crazy, however, I had a great discussion with my very good friend Greg of  http://www.genuinewitty.com , and after several hours of discussing this and other related, and similar events, I have to conclude that he is absolutely correct in his observation . We lost  this city during that famous Tamil protest which closed a major expressway in Toronto for days, with the police doing nothing about it … THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN . , We had the G20 riots , the police seemingly allowed this to go ahead  , we had the occupy movement which created a serious and dangerous environment, and again, the police did nothing to stop it . We had the OCAP city hall riot, and again, very little police resistance . There was Idle no more and again in nothing . Today we have black lives mater and again, zero resistance .

     

    I have spoken with officer after officer , and they all related very similar stories about how they were rendered ineffective by command and politicians who had their own agendas . So, were is my story ? Well, this is all part of the story I am digging deeply into . However, after speaking with Greg, I have to write this from a much different angle , because the reasoning is far greater than what i had originally considered . Each of the above mentioned events ,were on their own big and could have been shut down quickly , but was not. I now believe that all of these events were and are indeed connected to a much great , much more dangerous plan . People , we are in deep trouble if this is allowed to become reality . 

     

    What was it that Greg said that made me refocus this single focused story anyway ? Greg mentioned ” Transformative Change ” . I am not going to get to deep into that because that is a story Greg is working on and he should be the one to post it first, since it is his idea and theory . I do, however, agree with him. Another good friend of mine  , Lawrence McCurry mentioned , years ago , about the formation of a one world government . They may both be on to something big here , and they saw this before I did .

     

    Stay tuned people, this is going to get ugly ….


  • …. Because its 2016 …..

    Meow everyone. Yesterday, the larges t mass shooting in the history of the USA occurred in Florida . This shooting was carried our in the name of ISIS, the international terrorist organization bent on destroying the west and anything that has anything to do with western culture. The terrorist killed at least 50 innocent people who where enjoying a night out in a local bar which has been identified a a well known and well respected gay bar . We have all heard about and seen images of how islam treats person who identify as being gay so i am not going to re-post those image here. We already know how this same religion despises gay people … but wait, aren’t they,  the so called ,  religion of peace ?

     

    These events , do, however, need to remain in our minds , because i  just a few short weeks,we here in Toronto will be host the largest gay pride parade in the world . This event is known to attract well over one million people to enjoy the fun and festivities. There is, however, a very serious problem we do have right here, in Toronto that no one is willing to address. Make no mistake, yesterdays act of terrorism was tragic beyond comprehension, however, while that gut was directly connected to and had sworn himself to ISIS , right here in Toronto, Black lives matters Toronto, is connected to another, equally dangerous terrorist organization. Black lives matter will be leading this years parade. However THIS is what black lives matters is really all about and THIS clearly shows  just how connected they are to the international terrorist organization , the Muslim Brotherhood :

     

    The Muslim Students Association and “Black Lives Matter” had their display tables set side by side at the recent University of Ottawa “Islam Awareness Week.”  During the full week of 07 March 2015, the two groups handed out books to students and staff at the university and spread their ideology.

    The Muslim Students Association (MSA), was founded by the Muslim Brotherhood as one of its front groups with an eye towards recruitment and education.[1]

    All of those from the MSA seemed to be Sunni Muslim.  None were Ahmadiyya, Ismaili or Shia.  An individual asked about the lack of representation of other Muslim groups stated they did not know why this was occurring.

    Multiple books were handed out.  One was the Qur’an in English, while two others explained that all the scientific progress in modern civilization is to be found in the Quran and the Sunnah.

    The third book handed out was on ISIS and essentially tried to explain that ISIS has nothing to do with Islam.  When questioned, an individual at one of the booths stated that the West and the media are the ones who make a bad image of Islam.  When pushed, this individual said there were no internal contradictions or problems within the faith.

    The presence of a “Black Lives Matter” booth is consistent with the efforts of the Muslim Brotherhood front groups in North America.  Attempts by Islamist groups to exploit the black community to their advantage are not new.  The most recent examples were seen in Ferguson Missouri when CAIR USA (Council on American Islamic Relations) made repeated attempts to inject itself and the Islamist ideology into events there.[2]

    CAIR USA itself is a listed terrorist group in the United Arab Emirates[3] as well as being identified as a front group for HAMAS, itself a Muslim Brotherhood entity.

    Ironically, the second most influential person in the Muslim Brotherhood (Sayed Qutb) spent two years in the United States and made incredibly racist statement about blacks.  The most infamous one was:

    Jazz – This is that music that the Negroes invented to satisfy their primitive inclinations, as well as their desire to be noisy on the one hand and to excite bestial tendencies on the other. The American’s intoxication in “jazz” music does not reach its full completion until the music is accompanied by singing that is just as coarse and obnoxious as the music itself. Meanwhile, the noise of the instruments and the voices mounts, and it rings in the ears to an unbearable degree….[4]

    The University of Ottawa

    The University of Ottawa is famous, or perhaps infamous, for its list of alumni who have gone on to become jihadist fighters and other major players in the Islamist world. This includes Al Qaeda financier and Human Concern International board member Ahmed Said Khadr from the 1980s and John (Yahya) Maguire who did a propaganda film for ISIS in 2015.  Both were radicalized while associated to the Muslim Student Association at the University of Ottawa.  As noted by Michelle Sheppard of the Toronto Star on her history of Omar Khadr (Ahmed’s son), the Muslim Student Association was founded by the Muslim Brotherhood.[5]

    The University of Ottawa Prayer Room

    The University of Ottawa should probably close its common prayer room. The Quilliam Foundation, the world’s leading de-radicalization organization, has stated that Islamist Muslims tend to try to take over common area prayer rooms and create ‘Muslim-only’ areas.  Rather, these rooms should allow for other faith adherents to use these facilities.

    The Quilliam Foundation also notes that university authorities should ensure prayer rooms do not become an Islamist underworld, a centre for Muslim students to withdraw between lessons and thus avoid extra-curricular interaction with other students.   The result of this form of activity is that Wahhabbist and Salafist literature then tends to dominate, the ideology spreads and there is the attempted exclusion of others.[6]

    At the University of Ottawa prayer room, students report that Muslim students tell them they cannot enter the room with their shoes on, even if the event is non-Muslim.  They also report that they cannot find out how to book the room and their efforts are blocked.

    It is not clear who controls the room.  The Community Services office (3rd floor) normally controls all bookings for common rooms.  They, however, appear to indicate this is the one room they do not control.  Their suggestion is to go to the Student Federation, which also claims to not know.  However, they suggest that the VP Social of the Student Federation (Hadi Wess) might be responsible, but that cannot be confirmed.

    Of current interest, it should be noted that the same problem is occurring at Montreal’s Maisonneuve College.  Students who are sympathizers of ISIS have attempted to take over some sections of the library and had done the same to the prayer room/common space, resulting in its closure.  Students at Maisonneuve had reported they were afraid of Muslim students in those areas.  Violence has occurred during the course of the attempted takeovers and the staff at the college fear for their safety.[7] This is occurring in Canada this year!

    Other universities have already closed prayers for reasons of Islamist extremism such as the Technical University of Berlin, the Technical University of Dortmund and the University of Essen Duisburg in Germany.[8]

    University of Ottawa and the Muslim Brotherhood

    A number of individuals at the university have close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.  While some can be found in the engineering faculty, the most interesting may be Dr. Aliaa Dakroury, who was an Assistant Professor at the Department of Communication from 2008 to 2012; at Carleton University’s School of Journalism and Communication from 2005 to 2010; and Departments of Sociology and Anthropology and Law from 2008 to 2011.  She is now an Associate Professor and School Director of the Social Communications Program at Saint Paul’s University in Ottawa.   Dr. Dakroury is the managing editor of the American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences (AJISS).[9]

    What is not noted, however, is that the AJISS is the official journal of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT).  The IIIT is the think tank of the Muslim Brotherhood[10] and was created as such in 1981, ironically enough by a Canadian of Palestinian origin.  Ismail al-Faruqui left Montreal Canada in about 1978 and created the IIIT in 1980.  The organization was founded following an international conference of “major Muslim Brotherhood figures, including Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yusuf Al Qaradawi, in Lugano, Switzerland in 1977. The conference was held under the auspices of the Association of Muslim Social Scientists’, itself a spinoff of the Muslim Student Association, the Muslim Brotherhoods first public front group in North America.[11]

    Dr. Faruqui was stabbed to death, along with his wife, in 1986 by Joseph L. Young (aka Yusuf Abdul Ali).  The IIIT and others have attempted to pass off this murder as a Zionist or CIA plot, but the criminal investigation and trial showed that the murderer, Mr. Young, was a Black Muslim convert.  He claimed, with some evidence, that he killed Faruqui and his wife due to his poor treatment within the organization, despite having converted to Islam.  Racism may have been a factor.

    The Closing of the Prayer Room

    Should the University of Ottawa consider closing its common prayer room?  Given the problems at the University of Ottawa, as well as those observed at Algonquin College, Maisonneuve College and many others, this is a question worth considering.

    We need to wake up and realize that these groups are there for one thing and one thing only :  to destroy us, our way of life, our freedoms, our liberties. If the events in Florida were sad and disgraceful, which they were, we must learn from this and become PROACTIVE . This cancer must be stopped. We need to give our security services, our law enforcement agencies the tools and the powers to act to eradicate these terrorist once and for all .. because , one day, soon, these terrorists  will try to do that with us . I HIGHLY encourage everyone that if you see, hear of or know of anyone who acts, suspiciously , call the police.  Welcome to 2016 ….


  • Sid ” the scum bag ” Ryan sinks to new low ….. with YOUR union dues …..

    Meow  everyone, its no secret that there are very few people I have a strong dislike for. However, one person  does have a very special place in my little black book of those I detest . ( really, my list of very small ) Sid Ryan who bullied his way to the  dictatorship of the Ontario Federation of Labor, holds one of those few coveted spots in my said  black book.

     

     

    OFL_IMG_SidRyan3

     

    For those who have been fortunate thus far to avoid hearing his name  ( I envy you ) , Here is the Sid Ryan you should know about :

     

    sourced from  :   http://canadafreepress.com/article/sid-ryan-running-for-ofl-boss

     

    ” … So Sid Ryan is “thinking” about running for President of the Ontario Federation of Labour!   Think about the Days of Action in 1996, when Sid and his leftist buddies bussed in people from all over Ontario and even the States to try to close down Toronto, in an illegal “strike”. … ”

     

    ” …Think about Sid’s twinning CUPE Ontario with the notorious OCAP, responsible for trashing Jim Flaherty’s office in Whitby and causing major disturbances at Queen’s Park.  … ”

     

    ” … Think about Ryan’s attempts to take over the OMERS pension fund, and the political and economic power that would flow from that.  Despite almost 20 years as the CUPE Ontario boss, he has never submitted to an open vote by all the CUPE members in Ontario; he holds office by virtue of delegates, overwhelmingly selected from the NDP-Marxist activists and social workers who swarm all over CUPE, bleeding it dry of the funds needed for bargaining and enforcing the collective agreement.  And always remember, it’s the leftists who have caused the most damage to the labour movement. … ”

     

     

    sourced from : http://www.unionbook.org/profiles/blogs/ofl-president-fends-off-worker-abuse-allegations

    ” … Ryan locked out an employee from her office and threatened and intimidated employees. … “

     

     

    Here is what other union leader think of the slimy one : 

    sourced from : http://www.theglobeandmail.com/arts/books-and-media/heres-the-buzz-on-unions-today/article1364202/  

     

    ” …( Buzz )  Hargrove, though, is an equal opportunity critic. He peels strips off left-wing figures such as Jack Layton, Bob Rae and Sid Ryan – calling them arrogant and politically naive … “

     

    Under Ryans dictatorship, the OFL has been under increased pressure to curb its wild spending. We know Ryan loves to spend other peoples money, after all, he , eeerrrr, I mean YOU paid for Occupy Toronto to destroy a city park and turn it in to a new toxic waste site in  the heart of down town Toronto .

     

    This story, however, is not about Sid Ryan bullying, his spending habits or his utter lack of intelligence. It is, however, about his  well known hypocrisy and bold faced lies. The government has passed legislation recently allowing our security agencies to do monitoring of certain groups, and people. I have very little doubt that Ryan and his merry band of bimbo’s at the OFL are on that list.  Joel Duff, I am sure you are on the front page of that list . 🙂  Have a look at how  Sidewinder Sid Ryan claims to be totally against this spy bill :

     

     

    BUT wait, have you seen this :

     

    Sourced from here :  http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2015/08/14/hidden-camera-discovered-at-ofl-headquarters.html

    ” … OFL president Sid Ryan confirmed a grievance has been filed by a staff member with respect to the camera. He says he was told cameras were installed in the building “for security reasons” but says he had no idea there was a hidden camera in the reception area until it was discovered by a staff member this summer.

    Ryan blames former president Wayne Samuelson’s administration for installing the camera, but Samuelson told the Star: “I know one thing — it was not me. I never put in any secret cameras. It’s not something I would ever do. It’s not in my DNA.”

    Samuelson, who was president from 1997 until 2009, when Ryan was elected, produced an OFL invoice that he says suggests the “spy” camera was purchased and installed long after he left office.

    “It was put in under his (Ryan’s) watch . . . and at the end of the day he (Ryan) spends half of his life blaming me for stuff,” Samuelson said. “It’s an interesting story, the Ontario Federation of Labour using spy cameras.

    Ryan said the invoice appears to be for a new monitoring system that he says has nothing to do with the camera in the exit sign.

    Said Ryan: “I had zero knowledge of a hidden camera in our office . . . it was installed before I became president.”

    He provided the Star a letter said to be written by a former building superintendant, which said: “I . . . was authorized/instructed by Wayne Samuelson about eight years ago to install cameras in the building.”

    There is no mention in the letter of instructions to hide the camera in the exit sign.

    Upon discovery of the camera, Nancy Hutchison, the OFL secretary-treasurer, wrote a memo to OFL executive board members regarding the results of a preliminary investigation she conducted.

    “Staff members were visibly upset and distraught as a result of the discovery of a concealed surveillance camera, which they had no knowledge of in their workplace,” wrote Hutchison.

    “Many of the federation staff are now experiencing anxiety and stress due to this discovery. One member left work” and was “unable to continue working” due to a “loss of privacy, trust and feeling of being violated,” stated Hutchison, who refused to speak to the Star about her investigation.

    The Star learned this staff member was off work for about three weeks, starting July 7.

    Hutchison confirmed in her memo the camera was live.

    Patty Clancy, a staff representative for the Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union (COPE), said the discovery of the camera was a complete surprise and added the matter is being dealt with through the collective agreement.

    The camera, which was pointed at the main doors to the office and the reception desk, has since been removed. The hole is now covered by black tape, Ryan said.

    OFL’s Hutchison said in her memo as a result of her investigation she confirmed that Ryan was aware of the concealed camera.

    “Sid informed me . . . he has known about the camera since 2010,” she stated.

    But Ryan said in an interview that he was made aware there was a security system at the OFL after being elected president, but was not made aware of the hidden camera.

    During a tour of the OFL building in 2009, after he was elected president, Ryan said the office administrator told him there was “a security room in the building where there are cameras outside and various cameras around the building.”

    He said the administrator also said “there is a camera trained on the door of the OFL office in the reception area because there were intruders coming in and harassing the staff.”

    “That was as much as I was told,” he said.

    However, he said he was unaware there was a hidden camera in the reception area.

    Toronto employment lawyer Natalie MacDonald, an expert in workplace issues with Rudner MacDonald law firm, told the Star an employer must have a legitimate reason for installing a secret camera to monitor staff to deal with such things as recurring theft.

    “They really have to have a lawful justification for doing so . . . employers must in fact be acting in good faith in order to hide a camera,” MacDonald said.

    “If they don’t have a good reason and they are just trying to spy on their employees, that’s when you get into an argument that it could be a poisoned workplace, and you could find the employer in a situation where they are being sued,” she said.

    The discovery of the camera and subsequent fallout is seen by some as exacerbating the growing rift among current and former OFL presidents and the various member unions, who are divided on whether Ryan, the former Ontario president of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) and unsuccessful political candidate, should stay on as OFL head.

    Ryan said the fact the Star received another so-called brown envelope with respect to OFL matters is further proof there is a concerted smear campaign to undermine him as he heads into convention later this year where he will seek re-election.

    “Part of this story is somebody is leaking you confidential financial information in a concerted campaign to sully my good name and try to connect me into things I have not done. This is the second or third confidential financial document you have received in a very short period of time. You must ask yourself what is the agenda here and am I being used to further an agenda against the president of the OFL,” Ryan said.

    Earlier this year, the Star revealed the troubled OFL is so cash-strapped that a financial administrator has been assigned to oversee its affairs.

    During her investigation into the hidden camera, Hutchison also stated in her memo she was told Gord Wilson, OFL president from 1986 to 1997, had it installed — an accusation she said Wilson denied.

    “Gord was adamant he did no such thing and questioned if the technology would have even existed during his tenure,” she wrote.

    Wilson told the Star there are a lot of ways to determine whether employees are doing their jobs properly without resorting to spying on them.

    “It certainly wasn’t done in my time and I don’t believe Samuelson would have done it, so you can draw your own conclusions,” he said. … “

     

    WHAT, Sid the scum bag Ryan KNEW about this camera since 2010 ?  I wonder , where else did this treacherous weasel put cameras. Sid, did you place them in washrooms? Private areas ? Maybe about work stations? Sid, did you place key loggers on you staffs key boards as well?  Sid, , I though you hated this spy bill, yet, by your own admission, you spied on your own staff since 2010 . I don’t know but you have reached a whole new level of scummbaggery  that may be in a class by itself.

     

    To those of you who are unions ( I feel sorry for you ) , this is where you unions dues go. How confident can you be that  this walking excuse for a bio-hazard is not spying on YOU? This guy bullies those who oppose him, assaults people who get near him ( he has done this during the porter airline strike and at occupy Toronto  to media ) , uses his goon squad to assault others , ( Joel Duff  … below …. being one of those pathetic goons ) , and now spies on his own staff.  Sid, claims to want a safe work environment yet he actually CREATES a very toxic on right in his own  space .

    “Many of the federation staff are now experiencing anxiety and stress due to this discovery. One member left work” and was “unable to continue working” due to a “loss of privacy, trust and feeling of being violated,”

     

    “Staff members were visibly upset and distraught as a result of the discovery of a concealed surveillance camera, which they had no knowledge of in their workplace,”

     

    ” … ( Nancy ) Hutchison confirmed in her memo the camera was live. …. ”
