Exactly, this is what I am writing about in earlier post. The democratization of political dissent becoming the criminalization of political dissent 
Cross-Canada protests denounce government's proposed anti-terrorism legislation, giving police much broader powers and giving new powers to Canada's spy agency.

My condolences to  the families of the Calgary and Regina Individuals who passed forward to the Great Creator, Le Grande Artist du Universe, the life and time of  all that is good in his garden on Mother Earth. My condolences to the theatre community for the loss of these good people. Their denouement will not be forgotten, people and indigenous people affected by this tragic collision are sadden and in shock. Creator help us all in these times of trouble and death. :-(

Powerfull, God bless them all. Does she now reproduce the performance of a society at a time of reproducing the mathematical destruction of life  thru number elimination and digital propaganda? All within the history of the performance of society  of re-initiating the  reproducing of  the mathematical destruction of life  thru number elimination, starvation,  remembering a time of hell on  earth as one survivor described in another site commemorating the 70 years since Liberation. Powerful. On another site , it is mentions that Hitler marveled about the reservation system, and how the governments at the time, developed means and methodologies in elimination the Indians. I wrote a performance piece about that Hitler reserve connection years ago, and a few years ago  wrote one of my songs. Genocide has changed it's Pursuances.   I am glad she decided to go and reproduce  such a vital part of human history. Genocide comes in many forms, visible and invisible.   take care people of the world, we are all one under the Great Creator. God bless. ;-(

Either you are with us or against us!!! My Monologue to the committee!.....

 Rhetorical question indeed the Conservative MP pronounces in his Canadianized moment of fame during his 7 minutes. , As this news article shows there is little agreement, compromise, or balance with respect to this bill. The Conservative government is painting a hard autocratic line between those who oppose this new legislation or agree with it. Fascist to the point now as the ultra right wing capitalist begin to re-signify and re-define the notion of national security within the borders of their Victorian drawn nation state borders. Transforming the historical definition of Canada's former Conservatives government of the 90s who called Canada's first people, terrorist, militants, saboteurs ad provocateurs. As the RCMP officer during the Gusterferson said during that campaign: "...Smear propaganda, that's our specialty..". Now the terrorist can be anyone one of us now depending of the semantics of the question, answer, accusation, or judgement. The apparatuses of the current ruling government will always be used to perpetuate the status quo of the ruling class of economics, bloodline, and historical positioning which in terms of national security , really meaning protecting the people in power, and all those who have been selected for all those underground bunkers built for the end times..... Ya right looking after us as a people (Canadians) but then when the S#%#$$T really hits the fan; What will be our national interests of security be the next time around during the election?. Fight this legislation, because we are part of Mother Earth and the Natural law, and our body, land, water, air, and space is being eroded away to the point where our life becomes an open book for a system bent on defining the rights and freedom of the individual in an supposing opened free society. I have some experience in this matter,I was considered a security threat when I was hired for a Federal corporation one year. Hired , with passing the attitude test, quite exceptional, yet I waited for the call to begin. Finally after I phoned back, and investigated, I found out why I was not called. I won the CHR case, and aboriginal people will not go thru what I went through avec this certain Federal government hiring practices. During my filming of 7 Fires 4 U...Kitchi Manitou, Our production vehicle was followed by unknown occupants, and I was interviewed by CSIS early 2000s as a possible candidate for their organization. They were surprised when I told them about the security threat situation and how I won the case. Another time I fought another Fed corporation to get an award grant I won and was then offered a reduced percentage of the grant due to "privatization" of the corp at the time. I said no, I continued my fight against this apparatus until I gave up and finally wrote the head "director general" and secured the grant two weeks later after 6 years back and forth. "The system is not favourable" to Native people with existing racist legislation, nor is the development, construction, mining, forestry, oil, and consumeristic industries all bent on securing the most money, resources, and space year after year. All under the protection of this national security interest legislation. So do we as this lands first people pronounce the statement either you are with us or against us to protect Mother Earth, and really stand up against the system and become and re-signified as the criminal, terrorist, or militant again, but this tme the sys\tem includes the rest of humanity, Think about it seriously! Sorry Taz, stealing your ending line...lol
In the first hour of testimony at Thursday’s review of the government’s anti-terrorism bill, Conservative MPs posed only one question: "Are you fundamentally opposed to taking terrorists off the streets?" Conservative MP Rick Norlock asked of the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association.

Dialogue is good, Enough of the divide and conquer mentality and lets roll up our sleeves and get to work. 1st priority:  National Inquiry on Missing Women! #2: Review International Law  prerequisites to maintain nation state to Nation state dialogue and reform with respect to traditional territories, overlapping territories, dwindling resources and ownership. #3: Settlement and reconciliation initiatives to transform the systemic racism of dominant society into the love we all need to share and embrace. #4: Sustainability and capitalist economics: How do we equalize the economic chasm between the rich and the poor, the disabled, and most vulnerable of our society? Sacrifice in relation to materialism and the valuation of wage and labor worth; corporate versus private spheres of economics payrolls? The value of paper money, multinationals, class systems and apparatuses? Our leaders may not ponder these ideas, I am only an artist and courier driver, but many of the people these days are only surviving , because current economics systems are slowly ont he decline. Prophetic times are we in? What judgement do we rely on today as we maintain the human condition? Do good, sell everything and go help the dispossessed, the lonely ones, the broken ones, and all who are at the lowest place in 2015 today? God help us all!!!!! thanks for reading, share if you want. :-)

I uploaded string composition  of Monsieur Cote song
I wrote Monsieur Cote on Strings around 1994 after working on the film Windigo. I upgraded to the Commodore Amiga 2000 in 1992 after buying the Amiga 500 in 1991. Both systems had music writiing programs which I embraced fevorishly. Late nineties, I transfer much of my early writing works to VHS video through a genlock device.
