Many of our readers are aware of the book written by Warren Kinsella entitled, Web of Hate which details the personalities on the Canadian racist right. One individual linked to members and movements discussed in Mr. Kinsella's book is Ian Verner Macdonald, a former Canadian trade commissioner in the Foreign Service. MacDonald is currently suing Kinsella and the CBC, "because of comments Mr. Kinsella made on a CBC call-in television program on April 19, 1996. The program's focus was on right-wing militia groups, and Mr. Kinsella had published a book on the subject in 1994."
Mr. Kinsella is providing details about the trial on his blog, however someone who is close to the trial right now did provide us with the following scoop:
Grant Bristow testified at the Macdonald v. CBC/Kinsella trial today. To date, Macdonald has been supported by Philip Belgrave and one other elderly codger. When court adjourned at about 12:30pm today, [Name] was walking near Bristow. The unidentified elder guy says quite loudly towards Bristow: "I never heard such a pack of lies in all my life as I did this morning. No wonder they call them the children of the Devil!" (referring to Jews as I'm sure you could figure out) With friends like that, how can Macdonald lose!?
Indeed. And here are some interesting points about Ian Verner Macdonald:
- A former Canadian diplomat served as trade commissioner in Sri Lanka, US and Lebanon in the 1970s.
- RCMP investigated him over allegations he had handed classified documents to Iraq.
- Known in the 1980s as supporter of David Irving, and Canadian KKK.
- Alleged to have used farm as neo-Nazi campground for events but neighbour complaints forced him to move events to another of his properties.
- His home on farm was site of suspicious fire Wednesday, 16 March 2005 with damage estimated at $200,000

AN OPEN LETTER TO PRIME MINISTER STEPHEN HARPER
The Right Honourable Stephen Harper
Prime Minister of Canada
Canadian Immigration and Foreign Policy
As with most other native-born Canadians, I have watched with increasing consternation and perplexity the fruits of Pierre Trudeau's perverse quest for "racial balance" (his words) in Canada, a goal which he, and his no less sinister associates, sought to achieve through effective abolition of entry requirements for Third World migrants while choking off the traditional flow of British and European immigrants.
This radical change in the complexion, culture and character of the Canadian nation did not have the consent of the electorate nor is there any reason to believe that a referendum at the time would have shown even minimal support from native-born Canadians.. Insofar as the policy was implemented surreptitiously against the will and best interests of the country, it was, and is, fraudulent and should be judged accordingly.. It was introduced despite the ample evidence, readily available from the experience in the United States and other countries, that blacks (negroes), the òriginal intended beneficiaries, are inherently unassimilable and a source of insoluble social problems both institutional and private.
The fact that deeply-entrenched, lobby-driven Political Correctness and "hate" laws have forestalled open discussion of the problem does not lessen its impact; on the contrary the suppression of opinion, in which government and media are complicit, simply facilitates the growing flood of self-selected Third World immigrants that threatens not only the disenfranchisement of the native-born but the very survival of Canada as a sovereign nation.
A prescent letter in the Toronto Star warned as far back as January 5, 1989 that "the high Canadian living standard and elegant lifestyle are being used to attract residents of the Third World despite the very real risk of an overwhelmning response".and "although policy based on minority politics in the short term may be politically astute and spiritually satisfying, In the long run it will result inevitably in a metamorphosis of the country from a relatively comfortable, homogeneous Christian-European union to a turbulent, low-wage multi-racial, multicultural polyglot, essentially without national character, without cohesion, without identity, without historical integrity and without common purpose". To which might be added, ïn the light of subsequent developments, "without security, without freedom of expression and without responsible government".
Traditional Conservatives doubtless assumed that the self-serving, profligate, inequitable and blatantly racist policy of the Liberal Government would be quickly reversed once a Conservative party gained power but, inexplicably, such was not the case and the assimilation problem has now become a crisis. It is worth noting that the money paid to support penurious "refugees" in Canada is largely wasted by humanitarian standards since it could otherwise support a hundredfold more indigents in or near their country of origin.
Similarly, Canadian foreign policy under successive Federal governments has not served Canadian interests, on the contrary it has damaged our image beyond repair through its Lobby-induced subservience to American and Israeli positions on the Middle East and has caused us to forego hundreds of billions of dollars in earnings from formerly friendly oil-producing nations who once saw non-colonialist Canada as their trading partner of choice.
Time is running out, Mr Prime Minister, and unless resolute measures are taken 1) to restore the immigration criteria that had served the country well for over a century 2) to repatriate all persons here under false pretenses or who have abused our hospitality and largesse and 3) to restore control of Canadian foreign policy to uncompromised Canadian hands, the destabilization, and eventual disintegration of Canada will be a foregone conclusion.
It would be ironic indeed if the Canadian electorate, losing all hope that the formerly conservative Conservative Party has the will and courage to effect the necessary urgent reforms, should be forced to appeal to the originators of the problems for relief!
