Why 9/11 is relevant to Canadians
by Drew Noftle
Some might say that 9/11 has changed Canada’s foreign policies in such a way that Canada is no longer regarded on the world stage as a peace-loving country, but a country willing to use its military preemptively based on nothing more than the trust we hold in the word of our southern neighbour.
Not only are we participating in the NATO occupation of Afghanistan, but we are also supplying the British and American troops in Iraq with their most deadly weapon - munitions made from Canadian mined depleted uranium.
Already, millions of Canadians do not support our war effort. But what if the official story of 9/11 was a lie? What if 9/11, as the evidence now suggests, was a self inflicted wound? How many of us would then support the War on Terror?
The last six months have seen a massive resurgence of interest in 9/11, and the official story of what really happened that day is being attacked on all fronts. Groups denouncing the official story have popped up all over North America. Organizations such as the Journal of 9/11 Studies, Scholars for 9/11 Truth, Pilots for 9/11 Truth, and Veterans for 9/11 Truth – are all composed of well respected people from all walks of life who share a common goal of exposing the truth behind 9/11, and ending this so called “War on Terror”.
In Canada, a network of “9/11 Truth Groups” has spread like wildfire. Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Victoria, and even the Kootenays have formed coalitions dedicated to showing us all that the official story does not stand up. They question why the Canadian government is trying to give up our peace loving position on the world stage in exchange for an unwanted and unasked for façade of national security.
One of the most active groups today, is the Vancouver 9/11 Truth Society. Last month they brought Dr. David Ray Griffin to Vancouver to speak at St. Andrew’s Wesley Church about his new book /Debunking 9/11 Debunking/. In his lecture “Let’s Get Empirical”, Dr. Griffin told us how “The evidence that 9/11 was an inside job is overwhelming. Most people who examine it with an open mind, find it convincing.”
The packed crowd of about 900 people gave him a standing ovation, and left with a new sense of optimism for the outcome of the 9/11 truth movement.
This month, the Vancouver 9/11 Truth Society will be hosting yet another event. This time, a three day International conference focusing not only on 9/11, but also the changes that have happened in Canada since 9/11, and what we – as Canadians – can do to return Canada to the foundational spirit of our nation: peace, order and good government.”
The Vancouver 9/11 Truth Society has invited a very impressive array of speakers. The conference will open on the night of Friday June 22nd, with historian Webster Griffin Tarpley, author of /9/11 Synthetic Terror/ and /George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography/ speaking on the history of false flag terrorism.
Saturday’s presentation will focus on what really happened on 9/11, with experts of many of the technical aspects of what happened, how the US government managed to orchestrate this conspiracy, and how they’ve kept the truth suppressed. Not to be missed are physicist, and former BYU professor, Dr. Steven E. Jones as well as Robin Hordon, a former U.S. Air Traffic Controller for the FAA.
On Sunday the conference will focus on how 9/11 fits into the broader picture. What exactly is the agenda of the US government? What do they mean when they say “New World Order”? How does 9/11 relate to the struggle to control Iraqi oil? What have been the effects of the use of depleted uranium? Can we actually do anything about American war crimes and, if so, how?
As a famous German scientist once said “The world is a dangerous place, but not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.” Are we in Vancouver – by just reading sound bites and entertaining ourselves with hockey games and Hollywood movies – indirectly contributing to the dangers our world now faces?
Is it in fact possible for people in a city isolated from the rest of the world by the Pacific Ocean on one side, and the Rocky Mountains on the other actually made a difference in global politics? The Vancouver 9/11 Truth Society believes that they are. The Vancouver 9/11 Truth Conference, will explain to us how.
