They trailed him for 50 years trying to prove he was a Communist, now more of the secret files on former NDP Leader Tommy Douglas have been released as part of an ongoing court fight.
The documents, submitted to the Federal Court last week and obtained by QMI Agency, shed more light on the suspicions the Mounties held about Douglas and his politics.

50 years of spying on Tommy Douglas
The Harper government has enlisted CSIS Director Richard Fadden among the 10 bureaucrats to aid Conservative ministers testifying. This is something that speaks loud. The fact that Richard Fadden accepted or was not able to say no, shows that CSIS is not a police service or even a real spy agency. It is a politically influenced organism like East Germany’s Stasi and its bosses obey to political orders. Canadians should one day be able to see what CSIS really do to help the Canadian government.

To this day CANADA is not an overly hospitable place for Labour or Social Change. Ignoring the fact that the powers that be intended to stay in power one only has to look at history.
The Winnipeg General Strike, 15 May – 25 June 1919 was Canada's best know general strike. The government rallied behind the Commercial Powers that be and sent in the troops to put down the strike.
On June 21 “Bloody Sunday” a charge by the Royal North-West Mounted Police into a crowd of strikers resulted in 30 Casualties,including one death and ended with federal troops occupying the city streets. These strikers were characterized as communists.
The Party in power at the that time was the Liberal party of Canada led first by Sir Wilfred Laurier and then by Daniel D McKenzie.
It is rumoured that Prime Minister Steven Harper also was a subject of interest for the RCMP when the Reform party was born, and in subsequent years (2000 t0 2003). It should come as no surprise that the party in power was once again the Liberals. Self described as Canada's Natural Ruling party, it would appear that they have no qualms about staying that way.

Chad was prevously charged with sexually assaulting his daughter with the daughters testamony lasting 2hours discribed in detail her abuse starting as her earliest memory of 5 years old.
I was totally disgusted,hearing my grand daughter, I believed her.
Later I found child pornin Chad's night table and on his computer in the room where both Chad and Bernice slept. I shoed it to Maxine his mother. The next morning everything disappeared. Maxine Cooke, Chad's mother and Bernice were aware of my findings and both chose to cover it up.
I was going to testify against Karacsonyi. But then I was deliberately faulse accused of threatening Karacsonyi and removed from my home of which I shared with Maxine Cooke as commonlaw relationship for 14 years akin to husband and wife.
Karacsonyi got off on the charges due to the age of his daughter it was ruled..due to no witnesses and the consideration of the age of his daughter that there was not enough evidense to convict.
Before I was faulsely accused I call Karacsonyi's coucel Mr.Bel Ferdoure and told him I was not going to pay for Chad's defense and was going to testify against him.As you can see there was a cover up, Bernice Smith knew,Maxine Cooke(his mother)knew
I knew and tried to report it and lost everything but most important
I lost a wanderful grand daughter.
This info should have also been presented as back gound to karacsonyi' Child porn charges.Why was it not?
Karacsonyi would have gotten a greater jail term and would deerved it.As far as Bernice Smith she is not an angle she knew of his prior Charge in 2005, with hearing spring 2006. I assume after they falsely accused me Bernice and Chad had a faaling out and this was bernices way of getting back at him. Bernice Smith is no angle she condonned what Chad had done earlier.

He'd have us all under the hammer & sickle if he could.

It has been Nixon, Reagan, Harper, et al, who have sold the biggest rope (indentured labour, low wages; intellectual, financial and materiel, capital, etc) to a growing capitalizing Beijing Politburo) to hang us with, to steal our jobs, to ransack our state secrets (because people like Harper disdain to waste tax dollars and parasitic jobs on IT security and other big-government frills) and so forth.
We don't have Tommy Douglas around any more to take credit for such accomplishments. And if he was here, he'd probably be fighting for Canada, a better Canada. Like he always did, apart from his lamentable Phd thesis, which was common ignorance in those days.
I hope to see more Douglas' in the future.
