by Richard Sanders

"It ain't what you don't know that gets you in trouble.
It's what you know for sure, that just ain't so."

Mark Twain
Vice President, American Anti-Imperialist League, 1901-1910
(1) CANSEC 2009:  Fuelling wars around the world

Presented in Ottawa in 2009

(2) Exposing Canadian Hypocrisy & Complicity
in the Big Business of War:

Afghanistan!   Iraq!   & "Missile Defence"!

Presented in Ottawa, Toronto, Peterborough, Regina (twice), Edmonton (twice)

(3) In this video, Richard Sanders does a powerpoint presentation on  "Escaping the Canada Syndrome" which describes how "evil" can triumph when "good," well-meaning progressives are not only help captive and rendered hostage by Canada's peace mythology, they may actually take action to implement regressive policies that they should be opposing.  Examples include how residential schools were inflicted to promote "civilization," how the "Famous Five" promoted eugenics and sterilization, how the world's top arms-exporting governments and some large mainstream peace, human rights and development groups are pushing the UN's Arms Trade Treaty, and how the Liberal Party: (1) helped oust Diefenbaker in a US-backed constitutional coup that brought American nuclear weapons to Canada, (2) used "Peacekeeping" as a cover for Haiti's 2004 regime-change invasion, and (3) played midwife to the UN's "Responsibility to Protect" (R2P) doctrine which uses humanitarian-sounding pretexts to rally progressives into supporting US- and NATO-led wars.
Presented in Toronto in 2014.

(4) No Means Yes:

Canada and
BMD Weapons  (learn more)

Although this is a serious power-point presentation -- containing many much data -- it is balanced with some health-inducing doses of satire. The little-known facts about significant Canadian involvement in the BMD-weapons development program are exposed in humourous manner.  Among the eye-grabbing graphics, there are some witty quips from the likes of Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde and even Walt Kelly's lovable cartoon possum, Pogo!  Also included are the words of such profound, intellectual thinkers as George W. Bush, Paul Martin and Stephen Harper.

(5) Making a Killing! The CPP's War Investments in the News!
Presented in Winnipeg in 2017

Coalition to Oppose the Arms Trade                                          Press for Conversion!
