1. Your CPP ls Funding War Crimes

Huffington Post Canada, Amy MacPherson, 2013 01 18
Column: How would you feel if someone told you that every one of your paycheques was being used to
support war crimes and keep the companies accused of these atrocities rolling in lucrative business? And
how_would you feel if you lived off the avails of torture and bloodshed through the Canada Pension Plan
(CPP), upon your long-awaited retirement after paying into it? This appearsto be our dirty little secret,
that Canadians enjoy prosperity at the unethical demise of others. ln a recent interview with Harry Fear
we touched on CPP investments and how they contribute to the lsrael-Palestine conflict; through
complicity in drone warfare, an illegal wall, the death of children and suppression of human rignts. Wnie
this was enough to make anyone angry, it wasn't until I received mortified responses from baby boomers
that I investigated furtrer. The messages from this demographic were compeiling and show thit we're
ready to take action to restore our reputation and the shame of these transgressions will not be tolerated.
With the presence of hacktivist groups like Anonymous watching over the bittteneU and increased
wamings from CSIS regarding digital espionage as the biggest threat to our security, a new industry of
war games is birthed against conventional wisdom that places profit front of mind with little regard for
human beings. In fact, Chinese-based servers are responsible for hacking into Canada's defence
research, treasury and finance departments in an unprecedented breach of our most classified
information. lronically, the Integrated Soldier System was housed in a compromised department and it
may still come to pass that the government looks to Anonymous for protection at the rate we're going.

2. African terrorism is Canada's fight
NationalPost, Hugh Segal,2013 01 18
Op-ed: French air and land forces have deployed in Mali in support of a friendly democratic member of
the Francophonie, a country that has benefited from substantial Canadian foreign aid, and that faced
destabilizing lslamist terrorist incursions in the north. This is very much to President Franqois Hollande's
credit, as it is to Prime Minister David Cameron's credit the United Kingdom's decision to deploy Royal Air
Force air transport assets to assist the French in troop and material logistics. Canada has no colonial past
in Africa but we do share Commonwealth and Francophonie alliances with African countries that are
important to our security and economic future. Hugh Segal is a Conservative Senator from Ontario and
chair of the special senate committee on anti-terrorism.
3. Blockades discrcdit ldle movernent

NationalPost, MichaelDen Tandt,2013 01 18
Column: Democracy is not static. lt evolves. We are not living in the era of Oka, nor of lpperwash, nor of
Caledonia. Expectations today about how police deal with extra-legal protests, including occupations or
blockades, are an evolution from and a reflection on those earlier incidents, as well as other times of
public upheaval, including the G-20, Vancouver hockey riots and Quebec student protesb. So: With each
