Toronto Fire Chief Jim Sales calls himself an "agent of change" trying
to politically correctify the "culture" at the Toronto Fire
Department. The recent suspension (August 22) and firing three weeks
later of three Toronto firemen for sexual insensitive twitters
comments on their own cellphones on their own time makes one wonder
whether "agent of change" shouldn't be read as "agent of the thought
police"? The Toronto Fire Service didn't even have a policy about the
use of social media on one's own time, but, hey, fire the outspoken
twitters anyway; they were in that catch-all of political correctese

The Canadian Press (*August 22, 2013) reported: "Bringing change in
culture and attitude to Toronto’s firefighter community is not easy,
the city’s fire chief said Thursday as he announced the suspension
of two members over comments made on Twitter. The suspensions came
after a published media report said two firefighters had posted
several sexist messages on Twitter, including one that read “Reject
a woman and she will never let it go. One of the many defects of their
kind. Also weak arms.”

Fire Chief Jim Sales Said The Two Firefighters — Identified As Matt
Bowman And Lawaun Edwards — Have Been Suspended With Pay, But He
Wouldn’t Comment On Specific Details Of The Case. Chief Sales Said
Toronto Fire Services Is Conducting An Internal Investigation On What
He Called \'a Personnel Matter. I Came Here As A Change Agent,\' Said
Chief Sales, Who Has Served With Toronto Fire Services For More Than
Three Decades.

Terry Tremaine Exposes Junk Science and Lysenkoism

VANCOUVER. September 5, 2013. Former political prisoner Terry Tremaine
offered an enthusiastic audience a glimpse of his work as a
mathematician and scientist. Before he was victimized by Richard
Warman for his political views, Mr. Tremaine was a well-respected
university lecturer in Saskatoon. His talk was part of a four city
Western Canadian speaking tour which takes him to Vancouver, Victoria,
Edmonton and Calgary,

Mr. Tremaine exposed the trend of Lysenkoism or ideology-motivated
junk science. "Lysenkoism is masking ideology as science," he
explained, Trofim Lysenko was a fanatic pseudo-scientist in charge of
Stalin's agricultural programmes. He was a radical proponent of
nurture or environment, as opposed to nature or genetics, in raising
crops and animals. His lunacy led to repeated famines and
shortages.Under the Czar, with little mechanization, Russia fed itself
and had considerable excess for export. Under communism, the Soviet
Union never once fed itself. "Lysenkoism as a failed ideology of
agricultural science was not abandoned by the Soviets until the 1960s
after repeated wheat crop failures," Mr. Tremaine said.
Trofim Lysenko

In more recent times, he explained we've had the hysteria over "global
warming.|" Contrary to what the global warming advocates insist, "the
science is NOT settled," We know the earth's climate has been changing
for a million years, getting warmer and then colder. The assertion
that the current slight increase in temperatures is due to carbons
emitted by automobiles and the oil industry is laughable, he said. The
largest source of carbon dioxide emissions is the sea. There were
period of rising temperatures in the early Middle Ages when carbon
emissions caused by humans were negligible. Another likely cause of
slight temperature changes is change in the heat of the sun.

The major impetus for the global warming campaign is economic and
political, not scientific. Al Gore and his associates, for instance,
imagined a market of arbitrary "carbon credits". They hoped to run an
exchange for such credits and pocket huge commissions. Low energy
using Third World countries would be given carbon credits. High energy
using Western nations like Canada would have to buy the "credits" as
punishment for producing carbon emissions. The regime to combat the
non-problem of global warming would also fulfill the leftist goal of a
massive wealth transfer from the Developed World to the Third World,
he explained.

"Human inequality is the subject of my talk along with the intrusion
of political correctness into science," he said. "Political
correctness is simply another word for Marxism. When you strip away
the mumbo jumbo of 'dialectical materialism,' it's all about radical

Terry Tremaine

Unlike pure ideology, "science is about formulating testable
hypotheses," Mr. Tremaine explained. "The way good science works is to
try to offer methods to show its hypothesis is wrong, while bad
science tries to insulate itself from refutation."

"Charles Darwin," he pointed out, "did not set out to develop the
Theory of Evolution. Man has always sought to know his place in the
universe and every culture has a creation myth."

The Industrial Revolution caused considerable cutting into rock to
build railways and canals and to dig mines. "This work revealed
stratified rock levels which showed different fossil creatures tied to
different historical ages."

Darwin was trained in Divinity. "However, like many rural vicars, he
loved to collect bugs and butterflies and birds nests. These amateur
scientists use their findings to remind their congregations of the
glory of God's creation."

When Darwin got he chance to accompany the Captain of the Beagle as
his travelling companion on a five-year voyage around the world, he
jumped at the opportunity. He brought back samples from his
explorations. For instance, he found the Galapagos Islands a living
laboratory and he could trace the differentiation of finches from one
island to another, as they adapted to radically different

He concluded that there had been modification by natural selection.
"However, he was reluctant to publish his findings for 20 years. What
do you do when you fear your conclusions may lead to social disruption
and the possible breakdown of society? His wife was a dedicated
Christian. Darwin identified with the rural aristocracy and feared his
findings might lead to the sort of anarchy of the French Revolution."

In Darwin's time, "the problem was the evolution of man. People could
accept animal evolution, but many had trouble accepting that man is
part of the animal kingdom lions or eagles.."

Mr. Tremaine recalled the "member" or judge at the Canadian Human
Rights Tribunal ruling on the Richard Warman complaint about his
Internet postings in 2007: "He said, in his decision, 'Mr. Tremaine's
writings are not legitimate political discourse because they do not
promote equality.' It makes no sense that just because the government
wants to promote equality that I must too. What does equality even
mean? We are genetically different and look different. Some are
stronger, faster, smarter.

"Now," he continued, "some will respond that in the eyes of God we are
all equal. But that is not a scientific comment; it is an article of

"So, is equality a false concept?' he asked. "Scientific claims must
be testable. The Human Genome Project seeks to map out all human
variations. It has been determined that variations among all human
populations constitute just one and a half per cent of all DNA. So,
the ideologues will argue, we are all essentially the same or equal.
However, the seemingly small differences are huge. We differ from
chimpanzees by only one and a half per cent of our DNA. Thus, any
human being could be genetically one third of the way toward being a

"Genetically," he added, "we share 50 per cent of the DNA of a banana.

"We're being sold a false bill of goods about human equality. If we
really are all equal, why are there campaign throughout the West to
level things. Ultimately, the attempts to impose equality will
discourager excellence," he warned, "with dangerous results for our
civilization. You can ignore the facts, but you cannot ignore the
consequences of ignoring the fact."

"Most people have forgotten that the subtitle of Charles Darwin's
Origin of Species was The Preservation of Favoured Races in the
Struggle for Life. The world is a constant struggle among the races,"
he added.

According to Canada's weird Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which he
called "a muddle of stupidity, we have equality of rights before the
law under Sec. 15.1 but, then, under Sec. 15.2, there are special
rights for special minorities."

Tom Paine, Mr. Tremaine pointed out, warned not to trust charters of
so-called rights, as they take real rights away. "We have rights by
our very nature as humans. These are unalienable rights," he added.
and concluded by reminding of a warning by the late Doug Christie;
"Once the State can define your rights, it can also take them away."
This has happened in spades in Canada under the deceptive Charter.

Greetings from CAFE To Australian League of Rights New Times Dinner

I had the honour of meeting your founder, the late Eric Butler, on
several of his visits to Canada. As well, I worked, both in Canada and
on a speaking tour of Australia in 2005, with his son and my friend,
the late Phillip Butler. It was my honour to be one of your guest
speakers at the New Times Dinner in 2005.

On behalf of the many Canadians who share your dedication to real
immigration reform to protect the European character of our countries,
to freedom of speech, and to economic reform and justice as outlined
in the works of Major C.H. Douglas, I send my greetings and best
wishes for a most successful 67th New Times Dinner.

Eric Butler, Australian League of Rights

Major C.H. Douglas, Founder of Social Credit
