Dear Mr. Trudeau, Ms. Clark, Ms. Wilson-Raybould and Ms. Anton:

This letter is an open letter and will be distributed widely in Canada.

I wrote to you, Prime Minister, and to responsible others on January 30, 2017, in relation to the assault upon law and justice undertaken in BC (and Ottawa) in what appears to be an active criminal conspiracy on the part of a large, organized body of members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. They acted, one may believe, to violate the law and, specifically, to entrap converts to Islam: “Impoverished recovering heroin addicts with mental health challenges” (1), John Stuart Nuttall and Amanda Marie Korody in the elaborate production of a false and fraudulent Islamic Terrorist Event in Victoria, BC, July 1, 2013.

The assault upon law and justice is meticulously recorded by the Honourable Madam Justice Catherine Bruce in the Supreme Court of British Columbia. Justice Bruce writes in her judgement: 2016/07/29, Docket 26392, Registry Vancouver, “Regina v. John Stuart Nuttall and Amanda Marie Korody” paragraph 769: “Based on the evidence before me, I am satisfied that the RCMP knowingly exploited the demonstrated vulnerabilities of the defendants in order to induce them to commit the offences.” Justice Bruce writes, paragraph 770, “Not only did the police take over the leadership, but they committed illegal acts to enable the defendants to play their small part in the plan.” And she writes, paragraph 775, “This is truly a case where the RCMP manufactured the crime; this is not a situation where the police simply ‘instigated, originated or brought about’ the offence.”

Madam Justice Bruce writes earlier, paragraph 63, “From the outset of the planning for Project Souvenir [the name given to the Nuttall/Korody entrapment], it was apparent that the RCMP at the National Headquarters level considered the investigation to be urgent and a national priority.” She goes on: “Senior officers at RCMP Headquarters E-INSET Division were regularly briefed on the progress of the investigation.”

The seriously considered evidence and judgement by Justice Bruce, which I placed before you Mr. Trudeau, and Ms. Wilson-Raybould, required (A) a response to me, and (B) publicly announced action to investigate in order to confirm the facts Justice Bruce placed on the court record, and to pursue prosecution of RCMP officers involved in the alleged criminal activities … as part of an overall and full review of RCMP operations.

The replies I received, written anonymously, and purporting to be from (a) a BC Ministry of Justice office and (b) from the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP were confused and, as I read them, intended to mislead. Since no one signed the letters, I could only believe they were fraudulent and so I chose to regard them as frivolous. They read as if they are frivolously intended.

Your refusals to reply to me, Mr. Trudeau and Ms. Wilson-Raybould, I take to be demonstrations of cowardice. I believe that you can only be considered (by reasonable and prudent Canadians) to be accessories to whatever crimes have been committed because of your failure to fulfill the responsibilities that your oaths of office and your positions held in trust for all Canadians require of you.

Your cowardice strengthens the alleged criminal position of the RCMP, individually, and as an institution, presenting an increased danger to the Peace, Order, and Good Government of Canada.

Your cowardice recalls the actions of Liberal Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau in all the matters relating to the October Crisis of 1970. Careful investigators allege that, with a small group of insider others, he released the RCMP from the requirement to act within the law and bore serious responsibility for the murders of Pierre Laporte and Mario Bachand, as well as for countless criminal acts engaged in by the RCMP.

So alarming was RCMP criminal activity over several years in Quebec that on June 16, 1977, the Quebec government established the Keable Commission to investigate. In rapid response, Pierre Trudeau, on July 6, 1977, established, by Order in Council, (thereby being able to avoid parliamentary scrutiny) The McDonald Royal Commission of Inquiry Into Certain Activities of the RCMP to counteract and smother the work of Keable. The McDonald Commission became the most expensive Royal Commission in Canadian history, its three Commissioners all closely connected to the Liberal Party. Francis Fox, then federal Minister of Justice, challenged the work of the Keable Commission to limit it and reduce its effectiveness.

The McDonald Commission created a smokescreen over criminal RCMP activities, examining them only in secrecy and without public report. Pierre Trudeau, some speculate, hastened to create the McDonald Commission in order to protect RCMP officers he released into criminal activity, and to protect himself from scrutiny in the matter.

Your cowardice, Mr. Trudeau and Ms. Wilson-Raybould, in the Nuttall/Korody matter threatens justice and the rule of law in Canada. It cannot but appear to be tacit approval of the violence done to law and justice by the RCMP. If the RCMP is not to become a fully licensed criminal organization, you must act to follow upon the findings of Justice Catherine Bruce.

Already many reasonable Canadians believe the country is moving towards the condition of a police state, a belief confirmed again and again when police officers undertaking criminal acts are excused as not subject to laws which non-police citizens are held rigidly subject.

Which of you will say the country is not moving to the condition of a Police State when you, by simple observation, are doing nothing about a large body of RCMP officers, spending millions of dollars over many months, operating from Headquarters in Ottawa and E Division in British Columbia in order to commit crimes under the Terrorism Section of the Criminal Code which carry sentences of life imprisonment? Their months-long inhumane victimization of “impoverished recovering heroin addicts with mental health challenges” only reveals the conscienceless brutality of the RCMP members involved.

To the voting population of Canada, your refusal to act, Mr. Trudeau and Ms. Wilson-Raybould, says all that needs to be said about the government to which you belong and its real intentions for the future of Canadians.

Yours truly

R. D. Mathews
