“I have been released from one prison into a COVID prison.”
~ Comment by Dr. James Sears upon his release from
the South Toronto Detention Centre, Oct. 14, 2021
We are living in unprecedented dark times. Never in recorded history have so many evil men and women around the world conspired together in the greatest plot to wrest the power of the global community away from the people and into their own blood-stained hands. Were they to succeed in this demon-inspired deed humanity, as we’ve known it for millennia, will be on the verge of extinction. The present civilization, an accumulation of thousands of years of endless, slow progression toward a world of egalitarianism and world peace, suddenly is facing the most egregious, pre-meditated threat to its survival.
I say “pre-meditated” because, for a few stalwart seekers and revealers of truth who have been labouring for decades to inform the general public of the event currently manifesting before us in full force, most people never truly realized what was being planned for them. Now that the fecal matter has hit the proverbial fan and all hell is breaking loose the tide in the affairs of humankind has risen to its peak and God only knows what the future will bring us.
One of those prescient people who saw the writing on the wall and began in earnest alerting the Canadian public to the coming danger was Dr. James Sears. As Editor-in-Chief he, along with long time publisher Leroy St. Germaine who had been operating the newspaper titled Your Ward News since 2007 around Toronto, Ontario began to spice up the content with Sears’ satirical writings on controversial political issues.
Having been in the alt media business for a long time I learned about Dr. Sears’ publication in 2015 at a time when I was facing unprecedented challenges from the New World Order censors here in Canada and spending all my time and money in B.C. Supreme Court defending myself against the same specious charges that Sears and St. Germaine were also later to face.
The interesting parallel between James Sears and myself was that, because we used satire and parody (Sears more than I) to expose the machinations of the globalists who were bound and determined to take over the planet, we both ended up facing a similar charge; one that fell within the scope of the Canadian Criminal Code (CCC) and appeared under the heading “Hate Crime Propaganda” which, technically, is what Sec. 319 of the CCC is all about.
Returning to 2015 and my own court case, part of my legal strategy was to file a Constitutional Challenge under Sec. 2 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms should I end up losing the court battle. As it turned out that was what I ended up doing when eventually I was found guilty in November of 2015 of one of two charges of promoting “hate” toward the particular ethnic group who had initially filed the complaint against me via the BC Hate Crime Team back in 2011.
In order for me to challenge the legislation it was necessary to purchase the full transcript of the 14 day trial in BC Supreme Court that had ran through October and November of 2015 at a cost of close to $7,500.00. At that point in the legal process, one which had commenced back in May of 2012 and ran continuously throughout the next three years, I was flat broke and dependent upon donations from supporters of free speech around the world. It was then that Dr. James Sears contacted me and offered to pay for the transcript to be produced so that the constitutional challenge could go ahead. I gratefully accepted his offer.
Following the end of the trial I received an email from Dr. Sears telling me that he had penned a satirical piece on the outcome of my court case in the December edition of Your Ward News. It should also be noted that back then the country had just gone through another federal election and James Sears, prior to the event, had formed his own federal party called the New Constitution Party of Canada. He ran as an independent during the election in his home riding and raise a lot of eye-brows with his criticism of a particular foreign nation who he felt wielded way too much influence and control over Canada’s associated infrastructure from media to government to the court system.
It wasn’t too long after my trial ended that Dr. James Sears and Leroy St. Germaine began to be attacked by the usual suspects who use Canada’s notorious “Hate Crime” laws to silence anyone who is critical of their activities. Complaints were laid followed by charges and what best might be termed a mock trial that ended in January of 2019 when Dr. James Sears and Leroy St. Germaine, Publisher of the satirical tabloid Your Ward News were convicted on two counts of “wilfully promoting hate” against privileged groups in contravention of Canada’s notorious “hate law” – Sec. 319 of the Criminal Code.
As Paul Fromm, Executive Director for the Canadian Association for Free Expression (CAFE) put it in one of his regular newsletters, “Each was sentenced to the maximum — unprecedented for a first time offender — of a year in jail. As Leroy is of Metis heritage, he was allowed to serve his sentence at home.”
In November, 2020, under protest, Dr. Sears and Leroy St. Germaine argued their appeal by Zoom thanks to the Covid-19 restriction.
On June 14, 2021 the appeal was denied and the sentences upheld. Dr. Sears was immediately ordered to prison and denied even a few hours to say goodbye to his wife and young son. Dr. Sears’ Application for Leave to Appeal his conviction and sentence was turned down by an Ontario judge on July 16, 2021 but Dr. Sears was NOT informed and had to learn of the decision from a friend on the outside on July 29, 2021.
Following Sears’ incarceration Paul Fromm and those who supported freedom of speech began holding regular protest gatherings outside the South Toronto Detention Centre demanding the release of Dr. Sears and claiming, rightfully, that as Amnesty International states, he is a “prisoner of conscience” or a political prisoner being punished solely for the non-violent expression of his political, religious or cultural views.
On Thursday, October 14, 2021 I received an email from Videotographer Leslie Bory telling me that after six successful protests that were organized by CAFE and videotaped by himself prison officials finally released Dr. James Sears from jail on early parole that morning.
Due to legal restrictions that I am still currently under I cannot post the url to video showing Dr. Sears’ release and his interview with Leslie Bory but I was able to take some screen shots of the event.
I jokingly told Leslie in my reply to his email that I thought Dr. Sears was looking a bit like the infamous Charlie Manson with his full beard and long curly hair but as James said when being interviewed he had lost a lot of weight while in prison thanks to the shitty food they served but that he was generally feeling good and his time inside wasn’t all that bad. He was greeted by his well-wishers and presented with a huge bouquet of white roses.
To quote further from Paul Fromm’s latest Newsletter:
“Dr. Sears emerged bearded and very thin, but cheerful, after serving four months of a 12 months sentence (the maximum) for writing satire of [Censored. A.T.] and radical feminists, contrary to Canada’s notorious “hate law” (Sec. 319 of the Criminal Code).
He told supporters who hugged him and gave him a bouquet of flowers that he had gotten on well with fellow prisoners and most of the guards. The prison food was, he said, “garbage better than hospital food, but not as good as army food.”
“Freedom of speech is dying in Canada and will die because too many people just don’t care. People may have to leave this country for freedom.”
A new generation of free speech activists will have to join the fight, he explained.
“People should not be afraid of prison,” he told his supporters. I’m 58 years old and survived,” he said. In prison, he wrote 300 pages of several books, including a fictitious prison romance, based on reality, he grinned, between a political prisoner and a female guard.
Several bad things happened to him in prison. “I was kept for 27 days in isolation. That was illegal. The maximum is 15.” Even worse, prison authorities never gave him the legal papers he needed to argue his appeal. They ended up in his property bag.
He said, as part of his probation, he must attend a propaganda course on anti-social behaviour. He looks forward to this as he hopes to convert the teachers.
“I was a first time offender,” he said, “but I was sentenced to a year in prison — the maximum! One of my cellmates, who wished me the best of luck as I left, had been sentenced to nine and a half weeks. He’d stabbed a man, stolen a truck and had been found with a quantity of fentanyl.” Just as in the old Soviet Union, common criminals are seen by the state as a sympathetic class. On the other hand, political dissidents receive the harshest treatment of the law. “Hate speech,” he said, “is considered the worst of the worst.”
It was a warm sunny Autumn morning: “I have been released from one prison into a COVID prison,” he said to applause from the free speech supporters.
He promised that he’d be writing about “the toxic culture” among the prison guards.”
Having summed things up Dr. Sears said he just wanted to get back home to see his family and make himself a big plate of fried eggs and bacon!
