Expanding the link below, you can see how close the bus shelter is on the right to the VIPs hearing the Message. It was redesigned after The Declaration of November 11, 1985
Ottawa Citizen, November 12, 1985
It is now 38 years since the global political atmospheres of the time were so poisoned, it appeared the US and the Soviets were heading for a clash for the 1st time since the Cuban Missile crisis. They were shouting at each other in Public, and the temper was escalating!
Being in the unique position of being able to hand Prime Minister Trudeau letters directly, without any intermediaries, as he entered or left the House of Commons the last 7 years he held power, I urged urge him to undertake his Global Peace Mission and I was glad he did.
This is the link to a CBC report from that Time. Then, CanaDa acted as and was perceived by other Nations as an Honest Broker and Peace Maker in this world. These days, Canada is ready to jump into any of America’s Imperialistic wars without question by the Public.
PM Trudeau Peace Mission To China – 1983
Prime Minister Trudeau was the 1st Western Democratic Leader to break with the US policy of isolation and non-recognition of China. Facing the Reality of over 1 BILLION people, Trudeau visited China 20 years earlier, in 1963, and started Diplomatic relations. The whole world followed CanaDa’s example, and the rest is History.
With no real change or thaw in the atmospheres 2 years later, I was moved to make this Public Declaration. This was long before the world was being held hostage to the War on Terrorism, Libya and Syria being the latest phase of that ongoing War that will expand to it’s illogical, destructive conclusion – Armageddon, the war to end all wars, and possibly humanity itself.
On Remembrance Day, 1985, in the presence of The Governor-General of Canada, The Prime Minister, other government Leaders, the Military Brass, the Ambassadors of the Nations, and 25,000 People, the Spirit of these words were added after the moment of silence, and after all the Establishment religions prayed to God there should be no more war. During the silence as the wreaths were laid, everybody in person heard these deliberately slow spoken words:
“Hear O people and Nations, even to the ends of the Earth, the Word of the LORD God, who is, and was, and is to come, The Almighty.
The LORD has a controversy with the people.
Do you do well to honour the dead, and yet, deny the God of the Living?
Why do you follow the vain traditions of men, and make of no effect, the Principles of God?
You come here for one hour, one day a year, in a great show of Public Patriotism, and then forgetting, go back to work and make the same careless mistakes made by the generations prior to the 1st and 2nd World Wars.
Hitler is dead, but it’s his legacy that remains. A Soviet-American military-industrial complex consuming $trillions of dollars every year, holding the entire World hostage…………”
“Hostage” was the last word said perched on a bus shelter roof, as police got up and grabbed the megaphone. I was arrested for shouting, causing a disturbance, convicted and fined $250. I appealed without a lawyer to The Supreme Court of Canada.
Supreme Court of Canada
Designed and built by Ernest Cormier It had not occurred to me to appeal the 1977 conviction for ‘shouting, causing a disturbance,’ with the unusual 1 condition of probation, “Not to attend on the Sparks Street Mall, or any other Street in Ottawa for the purpose of SPEAKING or shouting.”
The media reporting and recording the news for posterity, no Member of Parliament, Lawyer, Civic action group, or any media recognized the imperative to protest such blatant un-Democratic action by the State, and the conviction stands.
Appealing the conviction of “shouting, causing a disturbance” for the prophetic action on Remembrance Day 1985, the matter was pursued to the Supreme Court of Canada. I was pleased to see the same three Justices, including Chief Justice Antonio Lamer, who heard another application the previous year, presiding over the Leave to Appeal. The rules allow fifteen minutes for the “viva voche” or “live voice” hearing, in addition to submitted documentation.
The documentation included a previous Supreme Court ruling no one can be convicted of ‘shouting, causing a disturbance’ unless an actual disturbance akin to a riot occurred, not just because the authorities were upset.
No such disturbance happened or the Justices would have already known about it. That would have been reported Nation wide. The MSM did not even report it the next Day, but waited until the conviction, 2 months after the incident.
Referring to the trial transcripts, a Justice said , “Mr. Cormier, the Court can’t go by the transcripts.” I replied, “I agree with your Lordships that you can’t go by the transcripts.
If your Lordships recall the matter brought before The Court last year, the trial Judge in that case said, “You are not a lawyer! You are not a lawyer! You can’t argue in my Court! You can ask questions, but you can’t argue in my Court!”
For those words only, I summoned up all the hype and bluster I could muster to duplicate the trial Judge’s behavior, wagging my finger at the Supreme Court Justices. Returning to a normal calm demeanour, continued, “Your Lordships! Those words weren’t even in the transcripts, let alone the viva voche hearing of them.”
This would have been grounds for a mistrial. Judgment was reserved, but the Court would not hear the case. The action signalled the Supreme Court may be presiding over a house of cards.
I believe this has led to repealing the right of habeas corpus, extraordinary rendition by the United States, Guantanamo Bay detention camp and legislation on the books that allow governments to seize anyone deemed a threat to the State and held incommunicado without constitutional protection as the world is now being held hostage to the endless war on terrorism.
This is not obvious now, but will affect the population as the economic and political conditions deteriorate. It is evident the global economy may be entering the time to allow this to happen, and who knows what the World situation will be in the next few years? While most people are not conscious of it or even understand what it means, the Reality is, we are living in the Common Era of Christ, the Year 2011.
Either the people will be in sync with the Time or they will fall behind. Does anyone really know what Time it is?
From this video as it appeared on TV that night, we can see how the technology has improved from then to now. We can also see how the Imperial Presidency has grown.

No, the secularism definitely turns me off. The ‘Greed is good’ crowd uses the same religious bullshit to get power. If we can’t employ reason, unadulterated by calls for faith, we’re doomed.
Say things straight up! Instead of “Why do you follow the vain traditions of men, and make of no effect, the principles of God?” which is subject to all manner of interpretation….just like the double-speak of politicians…..why not just say that a life to purchase massive amounts of cheap vanity enhancing crap is unsatisfying for the following reasons: 1, you never actually accomplish anything. 2. The society wastes enormous amounts of resources, while hard-working people starve. 3. You don’t actually feel good because you have a fancier car than the Joneses, and the Smiths always manage to one-up you. 4. Massive showey expressions of wealth are laughable follies……I give you the prarie McMansion! 5. etc, etc, etc…..give tangible examples, not some bible-double-talk……..unless you’re a damn preacher. ‘The principles of God?”…….just say it is quite possible to live a life of cooperation with your fellow citizens and reject those who would promote the ‘unGodly’ tendencies toward that frenzied self-centered consumerism that tends to live from speculative bubble to the next, feed on itself as it consumes the productive pursuits of decent working people. To hell with the God crap…..it’s been too abused over the years…….just speak plainly and directly to the issues. There are too many making their living by stealing the fruits of productive labor. It’s that damn simple. Oh, the mechanisms are complex and veiled, but at the heart, there’s your God forsaken problem.
John, You certainly spelled out in no uncertain terms, similar thoughts and interpretations extrapolated and translated from Spiritual Vision I declared that Day. I’m glad to see you did that here.
With the practical realities of that particular time and scene, there would not have been enough time to get all that out in a few words. I’m glad you do it here. I tried to say as much as possible in as few words as possible. Nevertheless, the world is still held hostage to the war on terror as the individuals have to deal with the cost and inconvenience of paying for it these days in different ways.
I’ve seen the thought and Vision, “In that Day, no one would have to talk about God anymore because everyone would know God.” I wish that Day was Today but there is much more to do before the world will be that Free.
Ray–I am ashamed to be a Canadian who would sacrifice it’s young in any ‘war’. This is done for greed and to look good on the world stage to look important. We are serfs in our own country and our children are sacrificed to support the greed of the elite controllers. There are more of us than there are of them and yet we still allow this to continue. I raised my kids to believe that war is wrong and even had them in cadets to let them see for themselves how controlling the State is. They didn’t last 2 years in cadets. But they learned a valuable lesson.
My father was used as cannon fodder and I have made sure that my children and grandchildren know that. My granddaughter was being taught that ‘Canada did not have conscription’. I told her all about it and got the information to back up my statements. Then her teacher stated–‘but they didn’t have to go overseas’–but they did towards the end of the war. So our kids are already being brainwashed.
Be prepared–our governments think they are gods.
