Canadian Forces ‘information operations’ pandemic campaign quashed after details revealed to top general
The Canadian Forces planned what some military insiders described as a propaganda campaign aimed at heading off civil disobedience by the public during the coronavirus pandemic.
But the initiative was shut down by the country’s top soldier who questioned whether it went too far in the methods military officers wanted to use.
The campaign called for “shaping” and “exploiting” information, allowing the Canadian Forces to be able to strengthen trust in official sources of information, said a military planning document reviewed by this newspaper. One of the desired results was that civil order be maintained during the pandemic. “Canadian public is deterred from participating in Civil Disobedience,” according to the objectives of the plan. “Canadian public compliance with suppression measures is reinforced.”
When Chief of the Defence Staff Gen. Jon Vance was briefed about the information operations campaign, he ordered it stopped. Some senior military staff raised concerns the plan could be open to abuse in using propaganda or deception to manipulate the Canadian public.
Various military sources contacted this newspaper to raise concerns about the information campaign. The Canadian Forces later provided the unclassified information operations document to this newspaper.
The information operations plan was issued April 8, temporarily rescinded five days later, and then officially halted on May 1. Canadian Forces sources say Vance told military leaders that as long as he was in charge information operations tactics wouldn’t be used in a domestic situation, except in the case where an enemy had invaded the country. […]
And today, this:
Canada’s top military commander is retiring.
Gen. Jonathan Vance, the country’s longest serving chief of defence staff, announced the decision in a letter to the troops that was published on Twitter on Thursday.
In the letter, Vance wrote that he has already informed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan and Governor General Julie Payette that he plans on relinquishing command of the Canadian Armed Forces in the “months to come.”

The Camp of Protest against Trudeau is still going strong at the War Memorial and they have some great new signage.
We were told that just this morning, the government came and installed this sign.
Some of the issues the anti-Trudeau protestors are concerned with…

In this short interview from May 9, 2020, Norm Traversy explains why he filed criminal charges against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Trudeau pressured then Attorney General of Canada, Jody Wilson-Raybould, to drop charges of corruption and bribery against SNC Lavalin, a company to which Trudeau had connections, and expelled her from the Liberal Caucus when she refused.
But Traversy could not get the RCMP to lay charges, so he did so himself – then found himself locked out of the courtroom where the hearing was held behind closed doors. And what a surprise: the charges were stayed for lack of evidence. Now Traversy is charging the Attorney General of Ontario for obstruction of justice. He knows he can’t win – but he can show what a farce the legal system has become. “We do not have the Rule of Law in this country.”

Canadian researchers are joining the effort to develop a Chinese vaccine against the deadly coronavirus, with plans to begin human trials in Canada of a potential defence against COVID-19 that employs genetic technology from the National Research Council.
The trials will bring to Canadian soil Ad5-nCoV, a vaccine candidate under joint development by a Chinese company and the country’s military. Backed by a state that has urgently sought a vaccine of global importance, Ad5-nCoV has been among the most rapidly developed of numerous candidates around the world.
Now the NRC has struck an agreement to support its development in Canada by manufacturing doses that can be administered in human tests and for emergency pandemic use.
If the tests succeed, the vaccine candidate could seek Health Canada’s approval for emergency use as early as this fall, Mr. Szumski said. It is already undergoing concurrent first- and second-phase human trials in China.
(Article continues at some length at the G&M. Bottom line, Canada testing RNA virus vaccine developed by the Chinese military.)

1. Trudeau and his ministers have a consistent foreign policy of sucking up to China
2. Trudeau, for reasons that are not known or easily understood, arranged to get two plane loads of medical equipment from China. The aircraft left empty today for Canada. Oddly, given the record of Chinese medical gear we are probably farther ahead.
Yet again we see why being reliant on China for manufacturing is a massive mistake.
As if spreading the Coronavirus and kidnapping our Citizens wasn’t enough, China has screwed Canada over again.
Two planes meant to take key medical supplies to Canada were forced to take off completely empty.
The debacle was revealed by Justin Trudeau, as the lack of federal preparation and Canadian manufacturing capacity continues to hurt our country:
“Supply lines and truck shipments to the airports are difficult and interrupted by checkpoints and quarantine measures. For the most part, we’ve been able to navigate through those and ensure that Canada has received the equipment that it needs,” the prime minister said during his daily briefing outside his Ottawa residence.
(I’m sorry. I do not believe that Trudeau is afraid of offending President Trump. In fact I think he doesn’t really get the concept of normal discourse at all)
‘Justin, we’re not here to talk about your socks,’ Malcolm Turnbull told Trudeau in a meeting after the Canadian PM stood up fellow-leaders
Former Australian prime minster Malcolm Turnbull has accused Justin Trudeau of “humiliating” other world leaders during negotiations for a revamped Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal in 2017.
In a just published autobiography, Turnbull said he personally felt let down by Trudeau and upbraided him for embarrassing other world leaders when he failed to show up for a critical meeting.
Turnbull said he was scheduled, by coincidence, to meet with Trudeau after the no-show and the Canadian prime minister seemed more interested in talking about his socks than the previous meeting.
“Justin always wore perfectly tailored suits that fitted like a glove, bright socks and on this occasion two-tone shoes,” wrote Turnbull. “‘What do you think of the socks?’ he asked, crossing his legs as he sat down. ‘Justin,’ I said, ‘we’re not here to talk about your socks’.”

6. Classic Trudeau. These must be for him and his friends.

Thanks to all of you who contributed to this post, and all the work we did today at Vlad Tepes.
Thousands of kits meant to screen for COVID-19 delivered to New Brunswick from a supplier in China last week were contaminated and can’t be used at this point.
Premier Blaine Higgs told reporters Thursday that he learned about the defective kits a week ago and found the news “disappointing.”
The problem appeared to be “related to the packaging and the situation around the company,” Higgs said when asked about the test kits at his regular coronavirus briefing.
Dr. Richard Garceau, a microbiologist-infectologist at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre in Moncton, told Radio-Canada more than 6,400 test kits were contaminated prior to being used.
“As soon as we received them, we realized that they were all contaminated with bacteria … In addition to being contaminated, the product was defective,” Garceau said.
The kits included swabs and sterilized tubes.
It wasn’t clear how the contamination occurred.
2. Justin Trudeau from February 1 2020
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau urged Canadians to stay united and warned against the rise of discrimination as fears of the coronavirus spread.
“There is no place in our country for discrimination driven by fear or misinformation,” Trudeau said at a Lunar New Year celebration at a banquet hall in Scarborough, a district in Toronto. “This is not something Canadians will ever stand for.”
The comments come just days after politicians, public health officials and members of the Chinese Canadian community in Toronto said that more needed to be done to avoid a recurrence of the racism and xenophobia experienced during the 2003 SARS outbreak.
4th confirmed case in Canada
Public health officials in Canada confirmed another person tested positive for coronavirus on Friday, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the country to four — three in Ontario and one in B.C.
In China, where the outbreak originated, the number of confirmed cases rose above 11,000 on Saturday, with the death toll at 259.

(Trying to find that video but its not easy yet)
A CBC News report gives kids advice on how to shut down “conspiracy theories” voiced by their parents about coronavirus being created by China in a lab.
Because apparently that’s the media’s job now.
The presenter laments how somebody’s Dad may drop a message into chat blaming China for “manufacturing the coronavirus” with a “link to a site you’ve never heard of” (translation – a link that’s not, God forbid, mainstream media).
The piece then features a woman from a group that combats “misinformation online” who urges the son or daughter not to get confrontational with their Dad but to accuse him of being accurate and stirring fear.

Canada, rather than actually find out the truth, then act on the truth, has chosen to criminalize any deviation from the official position. This is of course, standard communist practice.
