The Political Conspiracy of Silence in Canada:  

Parliamentarians Involved in Aboriginal Affairs 

© 2008 Brad Kempo B.A. LL.B.

Barrister & Solicitor 



During the dissemination initiative an unsettling pattern of responses was observed emanating out of the offices of parliamentarians where there should be the opposite.  Delivery of the smoking gun of economic genocide against Canada’s aboriginals, and especially the proof China's a major part of the systemic problem, should have been universally welcome.  Instead, the evidence was met with hostility, non-prioritization, non-cooperation and silence.



The genesis of the pattern of being not just unreceptive, but antagonistic, to this smoking gun was in the office of British Columbia Conservative Senator Gerry St. Germain, himself a Métis.  His service to his country includes being first elected to the House of Commons in a 1983 by-election; then re-elected in 1984; and thereafter he was appointed to the Senate on June 23, 1993.  He was both Minister of State (Transport) and Minister of Forestry in 1988.  As a Senator he’s sat on and chaired or vice-chaired the following:


            Committee on Aboriginal Peoples   

Chairman                   2007.10.16 --

Chairman                   2006.04.03 - 2007.09.14

Vice-Chairman          2004.10.04 - 2005.11.29

2004.02.02 - 2004.05.23

2002.09.30 - 2003.11.12

1997.09.22 - 1999.09.18

Vice-Chairman           1999.10.12 - 2000.10.22


Committee on Banking, Trade and Commerce

                                    2006.04.03 - 2007.09.14

2004.10.04 - 2005.11.29

1996.02.27 - 1997.04.27

1997.09.22 - 1999.09.18

1999.10.12 - 2000.10.22 


Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Trade


                                     2006.04.03 - 2007.09.14


Committee on National Security and Defence

                                    2006.04.03 - 2007.09.14


Committee on Legal & Constitutional Affairs 

                                    2006.04.03 - 2007.09.14

2004.10.04 - 2005.11.29



His committee memberships other than ‘Aboriginal Peoples’ puts him squarely within the orbit of trans-generational corruption viz. economy monopolization and wealth plundering and the corrupt administration of justice viz. the courts and legal profession hijacked by the wealthy to advance these agendas and Beijing’s de facto governing interests.  



Being appointed by PM Mulroney on his departure from office in 1993 is tell-tale evidence of recruiting from BC the same kind of loyal followers to these secret policies, agendas, interests and activities as advanced by, for example, Shanghai, China born, former Vancouver Center MP Senator Pat Carney (appointed in 1990).



The question naturally arises, why would the Senator from Mission-Coquitlam – himself a member of the aboriginal community and a former police officer – be hostile when presented with evidence as to why most of Canada’s aboriginal community remains in Third World conditions despite Canada’s wealth and prosperity.  



I believe we all have a duty to participate in the democratic process, to ensure that realistic goals for society are met. It is the first step towards a brighter future for generations to come. 


I have always believed that a Senator should be accountable and approachable to all citizens of Canada.  Your views are an important contribution to make to the Parliamentary process and I, therefore, hope that you will feel free to contact my office with any questions or comments you wish to make.

The pattern of hostility, non-prioritization, non-cooperation and silence continued during Fiefdom treatise dissemination in the House of Commons involving both backbenchers with explicit legislative experience on these matters and those who are also members of the aboriginal community:  Liberal MPs Tina Keeper, Anita Neville, Lloyd St. Amand, Andy Scott and Todd Russell and Conservative MPs Brian Pallister, Inky Mark and Colin Mayes (who just retired as Chairman of the Aboriginal Affairs Committee).  



By sharp contrast was the receptivity of Conservatives MP David Tilson and his new Saskatchewan colleague MP Rob Clark.   The latter especially remains an interested recipient.



The real head-shakers include Churchill MP Tina Keeper, a Cree and member of the Aboriginal Affairs committee: 



Ms. Keeper is best known for her role as RCMP officer Michelle Kenidi in the CBC Television series North of 60, about the fictional aboriginal community of Lynx River. [...] She was also married to the former chief of Cross Lake Cree Nation from 1999 - 2001.


She is a member of the Norway House Cree Nation, and has been involved in a variety of social issues, such as suicide prevention and producing initiatives in public education to build bridges between the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in the province of Manitoba.


She was elected in 2006 Canadian election as the Liberal Party candidate in Churchill. Keeper serves as the Official Opposition's Critic for Public Health, Canadian Heritage and as Special Advisor for Veterans Affairs’ Aboriginal Outreach.


Since being elected into the House of Commons, she has been particularly vocal on a variety of issues that impact northern Manitoba, including childcare; pressing the government to honour its commitment of the Kelowna Accord; and calling on the federal government to support the Bayline and the Port of Churchill. 






Her parents are renowned community activists: Order of Canada inductee Joseph Irvine Keeper and Anglican priest Phyllis Keeper.


Her life and work has been committed to her home and the Aboriginal community in Manitoba, where she has lived all of her life. Her work has been focused on supporting and producing initiatives and projects in public education to participate in building bridges and the well-being of the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in the province of Manitoba. 



And Fredericton’s Andy Scott, a former Solicitor General (97-98):  


Federal Interlocutor for Métis and Non-Status Indians and Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development  


                                  2004.07.20 - 2006.02.05 


Committee on Justice and Human Rights 


Chairman                 2002.09.30 - 2003.11.12


                                  2001.01.29 - 2002.09.16


                                  1999.10.12 - 2000.10.22 


Vice-Chairman        1999.10.12 - 2000.10.22  



And Brant, Ontario’s Lloyd St. Armand – a lawyer and who first joined the Liberal Party forty years ago – in 1968:


Committee on Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development 

Chairman                   2004.10.04 - 2005.11.29  


And Labrador’s Métis leader Todd Russell:  


Committee on Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development 

                                     2007.10.16 –


                                     2006.04.03 - 2007.09.14 




Being of Inuit-Metis ancestry, he has a close and intimate connection to the land and its people.


Mr. Russell launched his political career as Chair of the student council during his years at Memorial University’s Sir Wilfred Grenfell College campus. He was elected to the board of the Labrador Métis Association, now the Labrador Métis Nation, in 1992. Two years later he was elected President, a position he held until 2005. He has also served on a number of national boards.
