WASHINGTON (LSN) — A Belgian commission, looking into the Rawandan genocide, has gathered strong evidence that top ranking UN officials halted efforts to stop the killing of half a million Rawandans. Canadian Major General Romeo Dallaire, the leader of the UN peacekeeping force in Rawanda sent an urgent fax to his UN supervisors indicating that it was possible to bring a swift end to the conflict without undue difficulty. His plan was to confiscate weapons and thwart extermination plans revealed to the general by a highly placed informant.

A four year study commissioned by the Canadian Federal government and conducted by the University of BC has concluded that population control is necessary in the Fraser River Basin area of the province. The $2.4 million dollar study based its findings on UN notions of “environmental sustainability” and thus determined that the ecological system of the Basin could not support the hypothesized population growth. The study is characteristic of the UN’s fanatic push for worldwide population control, and the terminology used in the ‘‘Fraser Basin Ecosystem Study’’ indicates that UN influence. Pushing direct population control in Canada via our UN-friendly […]

The bill also seeks increases […]

VANCOUVER (LSN) – The Attorney-General for the province of BC, Ujjal Dosanjh, yesterday called on the Federal Parliament to debate the issue of euthanasia. Dosanjh claimed to be a friend of Dr. Thakore who supposedly committed suicide on the weekend with the assistance of Dr. Jack Kevorkian. However, his death has been recorded as a homicide. Oakland county’s chief medical examiner, L.G. Dragovic, has classified the death of Dr. Thakore as homicide, noting that since Thakore suffered from tremors caused by Parkinson’s disease, the poisonous injection would have to have been administered by another party. Further, the barbituates he had […]
