Conclusion
(http://www.canoekayaksafety.com/conclusion.html)

Be certain to see the following appendices, regarding crimes that offend the "human decency" of any society, let alone the United States and Canada.






In this conclusion, I want to first point out a very positive and pro-active website: http://www.vse.cape.com/~harborm/ciha/kayakersmissing2.html

Its' Title: The Mary Jagoda / Sarah Aronoff Kayak Safety Amendment H-4456

"The families of the two missing young women, reached yesterday by Coast Guard Capt. Judith Keene, commander of Coast Guard Group Woods Hole, both said they would support the idea of having their daughters' names attached to the bill, which would become an amendment to current law. "Both fathers answered the calls, and both thought it would be a good idea to do whatever they could to ensure that what happened to their daughters does not happen to someone else," Keene said. It is inspiring to see this dedication to saving lives in canoes and kayaks, in Massachusetts.

   See the website for better pictures of these young women.

In Canada we have lost two precious Girl Guides. The parents of the Girl Guides, in the face of such terrible grief have identical wishes to: "Both fathers answered the calls, and both thought it would be a good idea to do whatever they could to ensure that what happened to their daughters does not happen to someone else..."

This is the usual response of grieving parents. What else can you do? For parents in the US or Canada. These two countries have such strong links that I think it is reasonable to expect that canoe and kayak safety laws in Canada will affect the US, and the reverse. In Canada, an "Erica and Megan Level Flotation Standard for Canoes and Kayaks", in  memory of our two precious Girl Guides, would ensure a $50 rescue platform (life raft), so no more victims will die in the water from hypothermia effects. This family sat through a Coroner's Inquest that could only be excruciating and terribly disappointing.

I would fight this case against the deadly and irrational Ontario Coroner's Office, or Transport Canada, or the US Coast Guard, who have knowingly condemned this "identifiable group" whether or not there was a berieved family. As the record shows, I was asking the Coroner's Office to attend to these canoe and kayak deaths just weeks before the Girl Guides were killed, in Chapter 4:  "Dr. Porter, I respectfully ask your office to play an immediate role here. A kind of "general inquest" involving the circumstances of all Ontario canoe and kayak deaths over the past 10 years would be ideal. This kind of comprehensive study, if "inquest" is not really the correct term, would reveal that most people die in kayaks and canoes because they can't get out of the water. PFDs, even if more were worn, will not magically save people by getting them out. Obviously. (All of the kids above were wearing PFDs.)"

This is more than a matter of "human decency": this is a clear and exhaustive scientific document proving that any "identifiable group" of human beings, even Ontario, Canadian and U. S. children, can be easily degraded, then blamed for their own deaths, despite the obvious fact that any other 10 year old children, without previous experience or training, can easily rescue themselves and others.

This is a clear and obvious document whereby "zillions" of rescues, referred to in previous chapters, are in fact no rescue safety whatsoever, like an Enron-type fraud. These citizens, even children, are left in the water to die in terror, suffering agonizing deaths. No PFD will get them out of the water; although Transport Canada has even suggested that they can put PFDs on in the water, to maximize the death rate in Canada (over three times the U.S. death rate, that is very high as well.)

We have not seen such a cruel disregard for the value of human life in "civilized" countries, since the Nuremberg trials. This torturing to death to make money, while blaming the dead victims (and indirectly their families, whose loved ones were "asking for it") is unique to recreational sports, childrens' camps, and general society.

I have not inserted into this book even a quarter of my correspondence with Transport Canada, The US Coast Guard, the RCMP, the FBI and all houses of congress or parliament. I have mentioned the Consumer Product Safety Commission in Washington, D.C., who phoned me many times, knowing how these scams operate, and to apologize that their mandate was not canoes and kayaks. Otherwise the death rate, fraud, and obvious reckless negligence with respect to human life would have the perpetrators in serious throuble, like Enron in the courts now.

It is against the law in both countries to recklessly endanger, defraud and kill in agonizing deaths, these innocent victims. We have seen co-operation from the Ontario Provincial Police and the Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC), to recommend putting a PFD on in the water; although this is against specific USCG law regarding children, and the head office of the CSBC, the National Safe Boating Council. They also advise against mandatory PFD usage. And then the dead, dying agonized deaths in terror, are blamed for their own deaths. (Noting that these victims cannot escape deadly waters, like any 10 year old girls in the pictures, without previous experience or instruction with $25 CO2 airbag sponsons.)

This is a deadly scam to profit on the dead and their grieving families!

See the dead young women above. Their recreational kayaks had very large cockpits, too large for sprayskirts to permit pumping out; although we have seen in earlier chapters that any sprayskirt prevents pumping out and rescue of any kayak: "unworkable for any kayak since the pump cannot be fitted under any sprayskirt without re-flooding, while the victim tries to not recapsize, etc." Sea Kayaker Magazine, February, 2003, p.29)

It is important to realize that the fraud and greed of Enron did not extend to the agonizing deaths of citizens. Whereas this fraud does. I have documented an OPP officer whom I have known for over 5 years, OPP Sergeant Schlorff, who actually seemed very "helpful" and "concerned with saving lives", at the time.  His line: "boating safety is my life"; actually criminally mis-represented my emails to him,  that virtually begged him to save these innocent children and others. What protection does the public have when major police forces lie? See: (http://www.canoekayaksafety.com/appendix.html)

My communications to him: the first 2 begging him to stop these deaths, (as you can see above in (http://www.canoekayaksafety.com/appendix.html), later generalized with considerable latitude regarding the actual intentions of those named: in that they may have decided that they were wrong and should save canoe and kayak victims.

And most (over 95%) of these emails did not mention him at all; after the letter to me from Deputy PM and Federal Minister of Public Safety A. Anne McLellan, Oct. 29, 2005: who said essentially that "nothing was wrong", according to her RCMP. (She was also Solicitor-General, and boss-woman of the RCMP.) She actually killed far more in canoes and kayaks,  in 4 short Summer months in Canada, than Al Qaeda in the 2005 UK subway bombings. For details of her letter and my correspondence to her, about 240 U.S. and Canadian deaths ago (2 Summers), See: http://www.sponsonguy.com/

I had written in 2004: "I would stake the reputations of  two particular politicians on the success of this fight. It is theirs to lose. (And I believe that they will not. It would be quite strange and unusual for them or anyone else in their position, to deliberately lose here.) Which is to say they cannot win by refusing to make canoes and kayaks safer. I am certain that they are not child murderers in any form. I believe that they are both respectable politicians in public life. And they have the opportunity now to prove it. They know about Milgram, Goldhagen's "Hitler's Willing Executioners", and they are not politicians who are at any personal risk (as in Nazi Germany) by doing the right thing." This was written in 2004.

I refer (when this was written in 2004), to Michael Bryant, Ontario's Attorney General and Monte Kwinter, Minister of Public Safety and the OPP.) Unfortunately, today, March 17, 2006, both of these men have perpetrated acts to continue canoe and kayak deaths, and embolden the perpetrators, like protecting any murder racket, even if it is child-murder. Over these same years I have also informed Canada's Attorney General Irwin Cotler, a Jewish person like Mr. Bryant and Mr. Kwinter, who like Dr. Milgram, had families who suffered directly from the Holocaust. It is terribly ironic that these politicians have endorsed for years the tortures and murders of another "identifiable group of victims", including Canadian and American children. Are they ignorant of history, and such pain and suffering?

Now former Attorney General, as a result of a Canadian election that expressed extreme disgust with the governing Liberal party, Mr. Cotler's office has received several thousand emails since 2004 (and I have the receipts): detailing everything in this book.

Where is the common decency here? The only significant previous historical point in "civilized" society, regarding Degrading Propaganda to Perpetuate Hatred Against Identifiable Groups: to Justify their Cruel and Tortured Deaths, to date, was the Holocaust. The hated Gestapo used the same torture by water that the MPPs in Ontario's "Queens Park" might use on Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty (if they are as stealthy and fast) operating outside of the Geneva Convention (not a Park near Orillia, Ontario.)

You see: Dalton McGuinty, Premier of Ontario, on his way to the toilet, might be quickly gagged by Opposition Leader John Tory and his stalwart MPPs Joe Tascona and (my representative MPP) Garfield Dunlop. Garfield is husky enough to secure the lower body while they all put Dalton's head in the toilet. Flush it first, maybe twice, knowing the pigsty that Queen's Park can be.

Dalton, first hand, can experience how painful and terrifying a drowning experience can be, for anyone, his own children or constituents. And then he can experience his government's record, what he knows already from thousands of my emails since 2004 regarding the Girl Guides:

1) Torturing people by drowning is inhuman, and inhumane.
2) Bryant and Kwinter, who want to continue to torture about 25 Canadians and 90 Americans to death in 2006, through the OPP Schlorff and CSBC/NBSC/ACA/NBSAC links: Protection of the American Canoe Association (see email to OPP Det. Con. Falls from American Canoe Association, 90 murders annually in the US.)
3) Dalton's government is facilitating 120 torturing murders in 2006 in North America, about one dozen in Ontario in 2006; as in 2005, and in 2004.
 



 

Massachusetts is a progressive State, and it is good to see this website link to my previous book "Canoe and Kayak Scam Kills 1000 Americans: US Coast Guard Studies Device to Save Victims". I can appreciate that this book is a very unpleasant subject for anyone. Especially for the canoe and kayak organizations. I was hoping that they would be stupid enough and arrogant enough to try to take me to court for calling them "murderers" many times, in many ways. Apparently they are content with the label. Saving lives is very difficult and often unpleasant. It always will be.

Here is something you can do that is positive now, for the Jagoda/Aronoff families, for the good people of Massachusetts, and ultimately all of the berieved families in the United States and Canada. You know now that dozens of times a few government officials have said: "We can't let this happen again!", when deaths occur in a canoe or kayak. So they try to pass a Mandatory PFD bill for example (this happens regularly). Unfortunately they don't have all of the facts. You need all of the facts or you will not save lives. Just more of the victims will be dead in the water wearing PFDs, instead of not wearing PFDs. We see this in the US Coast Guard Statistics now: up to 35% of the dead victims of kayaks and canoes were wearing PFDs before 2004. You must get them out of the water if you don't want them to die! This is pretty obvious I suppose. But many well-intentioned people don't understand this.

So what I suggest is that you go to the Harbormaster website in Massachusetts. They are very decent people. And give them the information they need to fix the problem tomorrow, not 2 years from now (as we all complain about.) Everyone knows that this takes too long. Go to their site:  http://www.vse.cape.com/~harborm/ciha/kayakersmissing2.html and give them your information. This is what I sent them on July 21, 2004:

Re: Kayak Safety Amendment Massachusetts H-4456

Dear Ms. Levine:

Re: Friends Find Solace in Her Cheerfulness Officials Halt Search for Missing Bethesda 19-Year-Old in Waters off Cape Cod By Susan Levine Washington Post Staff Writer Thursday, October 16, 2003; Page B02

I found this article on the Harbormasters' website: http://www.vse.cape.com/~harborm/ciha/kayakersmissing2.html

I am the author of "Canoe and Kayak Safety Scam Kills 1000 Americans: US Coast Guard Studies Device to Save Victims", also linked on that website. (Just type the title into Google to buy at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, etc.)

There is a huge story in Massachusetts that affects all of the needless deaths in canoes and kayaks thoughout the world. I am currently working with the Minister of Community Safety in Ontario regarding the deaths of 2 Girl Guides wearing PFDs in canoes, just as the two tragic deaths in Massachusetts are behind the Kayak Safety Amendment Massachusetts H-4456.

I want to point out this irony in Massachusetts 10 years ago: I attended the first Military Kayaking Symposium in 1994 at Fort Devens, near Boston. About a dozen Military Kayaking teams from the NATO countries attended. In case you did not know, kayaks were used in WW2 a great deal, on all sides: Usually folding kayaks with integral sponsons that could be launched easily from submarines. The 10th Airbourne Special Forces invited me to Fort Devens since I invented modern canoe and kayak sponsons, that transform canoes and kayaks from potential death traps into unique rescue vessels that can save lives where other types of rescue boats cannot. This is an excerpt from the 10th Airbourne evaluation. I would point out that the Armed Forces are particularly interested in the safety of their soldiers, not only from the point of view of "mission accomplished", but also from the ethics of loyalty to "comrades in arms". These soldiers are a refreshing contrast to the money-grubbing ethics and complete disregard for public safety seen at commercial canoe and kayak symposiums, sad to say:

"basic, no nonsense...dramatically increase...safety and...capabilities... It should be noted that within the North American civilian sea kayak industry there is some controversy...Sea Wings' direct competition with...the paddle float...the merits of Sea Wings...far outweigh those of the paddlefloat...During the IMKP 1994 we used Sea Wings with all our rescue boats as back-up flotation/stability for awashed kayaks needing assistance pumping out in heavy seas. In addition, IMKP's rescue kayak was fitted with Sea Wings on a permanent basis which allowed us to be far more stable in possible rescue operations...Sea Wings dramatically increase re-entry operations with capsized boats. Indeed, even with heavily loaded boats (those approaching 1000 lbs.) most paddlers can easily re-enter the kayak. However the most notable advantage of Sea Wings is with lightly loaded boats; ie, those kayaks which are far less stable (more tippy) than fully loaded boats. Recovery operations are far more difficult in these boats and most students have extreme difficulty in mastering the necessary techniques. This is compounded in heavy seas. Sea Wings offers an almost guaranteed method of re-entering a lightly loaded kayak even in heavy seas. Stability increase in heavy seas. Paddling in extremely heavy seas is difficult. Sea Wings offer the crews an additional method of dealing with such sea states. One of the most dangerous situations a detachment can find itself in is that of towing a disabled crew with full operational loads in heavy seas at night. The employment of Sea Wings dramatically increases the safety margin. In my opinion, this is one of the sponsons' most important contributions to MAROPS. " Invitational Military Kayak Paddle 1994 Evaluation

Since that time, about 1000 US citizens have died in canoes and kayaks:

Canoes and kayaks have always had the largest drowning death numbers, despite PFD use by 32-35% of dead victims since year 2000, in the United States. (US Coast Guard Boating Accident Report Database, BARD).

"A total of 105 canoeists and kayakers drowned in 1998. Canoes and kayaks have the highest fatality rate of all boat types ñ double the rate of personal watercraft and 4 times higher than open motorboats." (Before the Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation of the U.S. House of Representatives, May 15, 2001, BOAT/U.S.)

US Coast Guard report 071-01: "Canoes and kayaks have by far the highest fatality rates per million hours of exposure (.42) as any other boat type". This USCG figure may be far too low, considering the death statistics of the Ford/Firestone scandal, over a decade, with many more vehicles, many more use/hours daily, and only 200 deaths.

The human body loses body heat in water at a rate that is 25 times the rate of body heat loss in air. The rate of heat loss is much higher than 25 times if the water is moving around the body. In other words the water is not perfectly calm but is moving by even small amounts of current or small waves. This is why death occurs so quickly in water. Hypothermia effects not only quickly cause the human mind to become impaired in judgment, but muscles are quickly affected. It is impossible to use hands and limbs normally after only a small lowering in body temperature.

The human body continues to lose heat if the victim does not quickly get out of the water. After the extremities lose heat, the body core becomes affected. The human heart will beat irregularly and eventually cannot sustain life. All of this happens very quickly. It is easy to search the Internet regarding hypothermia. All waters in North America kill quickly. Even waters in Florida, where so many canoe and kayak victims die. Usually the victim dies first of drowning, when the head can no longer be held out of the water, the victim weakened by hypothermia, despite the victim wearing a PFD.

Ms. Levine, canoes and kayaks are obviously the most vulnerable and deadly boats known. They are also involved in the most deadly lifesaving scandal in maritime history. The death rate is by far the highest death rate than any other activity in exposure hours (including driving cars), in both the United States and Canada.

This is known at the highest levels of government, including the entire US Senate in Washington.

The USCG National Boating Safety Advisory Council (NBSAC) also recognized Sponsons in the Minutes, 22 - 23 April 2002: "Mr. Tsuneyoshi had an observation then a question... He then asked where the ACA stood on automatic inflating sponsons for canoes."

ACA Yeager lied, referring to sponsons as "training wheels" when they obviously have no "training" function. Sponsons are "automatically inflating" in emergencies, concealed in 2 tiny containers on any canoe or kayak, above the waterline and almost un-noticeable except for the words "emergency rescue". Lightweight (1 lb.), inexpensive ($25 installed at the factory), sponsons are manufactured exactly like US Coast Guard approved CO2 gas-inflating PFDs, with back-up oral inflation. ACA Black also lied to the Attorney General of Florida only a few months previously, stating any kind of sponsons did not work.

National Association of State Boating Law Administrators, (NASBLA) Boating Accident Investigation, Reporting and Analysis Committee Minutes, April 16, 2002: "As for non-motorized boats, several committee members reported receiving email from Tim Ingram, who is rather severe, but he got some attention. Perhaps sponsons are a good alternative. Frank Disbrow commented that about 50% fatalities in Connecticut are canoes and kayaks."

Kayaks are becoming more popular and increasing their death toll relative to open canoes. (Note that very few kayaks are "traditional" Eskimo types or White Water types, which constitute only 2.9% and 5.2% respectively, of the total 340,300 kayak sales estimated by the National Marine Manufacturers Association for year 2002, the latest data year available to me now. Contrast this with 48.6% of all 2002 kayaks sold being "Sit-in Recreation" and 25.2% as "Sit-on Recreation". Open canoes sold 2002: 100,000.

The ACA has no instruction at all for these largest representative types of kayaks: Sit-on-Recreational types (also called Sit-on-Tops) are 25.2% of all kayaks, the Sit-ins are 48.6% These types cannot be Eskimo rolled, which is what the ACA mainly tries to sell, in their taxpayer funded literature such as "Critical Judgment - Understanding Canoe and Kayak Fatalities". The ACA doesn't like the "recreational" types obviously, since they do not fit their instruction money scam. Neither type normally has a sprayskirt because the cockpit is either far too large, or open-cockpit, as in the sit-on-tops. Obviously no rolling.* (*Without a sprayskirt the "Sit-in-Recreationals" just re-flood. But with a sprayskirt they just re-flood. Sprayskirts are unworkable for any kayak since the pump cannot be fitted under any sprayskirt without re-flooding, while the victim tries to not recapsize, etc. Sea Kayaker Magazine, February, 2003, p.29)

Sprayskirts do cause entrapment deaths, especially when kayaks are rented or borrowed since victims are unfamiliar with the tricks of fitting any particular skirt to any particular kayak. Miss the grab loop and most sprayskirts are tight enough, (since they have to be to keep out water properly), that they cannot be removed by a capsized victim. Who then drowns. Summer camps and elementary schools combine children with sprayskirts according to ACA instruction programs for schools, funded by the USCG Wallop-Breaux Trust.

Without sponsons, the 48.6 % are impossible to use to get out of the water, on top of them, even a little. They roll like a log. They are just as unstable upside-down as upright when flooded. After just a little while in the water, hypothermia effects prevent holding on, as victims begin to die. These kayaks prevent anyone from getting out of the water without sponsons.

(The "Sit-on-Tops" already have built-in sponsons, but these sponsons are too small for the majority of the population to use as a Level Flotation Standard Rescue Platform. US Coast Guard Boating Safety Circular 73* "Establishes level flotation standards on rowboats and outboard boats less than 20 feet in length, the boats most often involved in swamping and capsizing accidents, so that the boat will float level when swamped and provide a safe platform until rescue. 33 CFR 183. Issued April 18, 1977; Effective August 1, 1978.")

Only canoes and kayaks have a US Coast Guard Safety Exemption (that Chairman Muldoon of the NBSAC threatened the ACA to lift, NBSAC minutes, October 2002. See the US COAST GUARD website, Office of Boating Safety for these minutes.) Otherwise canoes and kayaks would require the Level Flotation Standard like any other small boat, so victims can get out of the water. Or they will die, even wearing a PFD, like 35% of the dead victims in canoes and kayaks in 2002. The American Canoe Association asked the US Coast Guard (who were testing some kind of Sponsons then), for "safety exemptions" in the mid-seventies. They tricked the USCG into believing their instruction worked, about 3,000 US deaths ago.

So the funding of the ACA by the Wallop-Breaux Trust, through the US Coast Guard essentially prevents sponsons on all kayaks and canoes. But most of all it prevents the safety of the majority types of kayaks and canoes for which the ACA has no safety instruction. In fact they say often that the public should not use these canoes and kayaks, but should use ones that they can roll. (After they take expensive rolling lessons that don't save the lives of experts in Greenland etc.) So this money scam by the ACA and the instructors' lobby essentially murders people like Mary Jagoda and Sarah Aronoff who died in Massachusetts last year in recreational kayaks.

"The families of the two missing young women, reached yesterday by Coast Guard Capt. Judith Keene, commander of Coast Guard Group Woods Hole, both said they would support the idea of having their daughters' names attached to the bill, which would become an amendment to current law. "Both fathers answered the calls, and both thought it would be a good idea to do whatever they could to ensure that what happened to their daughters does not happen to someone else," Keene said. It is inspiring to see this dedication to saving lives in canoes and kayaks, in Massachusetts.*

*Inspiring as this may be, this Amendement will do almost nothing to make canoes and kayaks safer since there is no means to get out of the water. Mandatory PFD use is smart to require, especially including a whistle and a compass, but already 35% of victims are wearing PFDs. They have no way to get out of the water!

PFDS cannot magically get victims out of the water.

Mary Jagoda and Sarah Aronoff would have died anyway if they capsized because they had no means of getting out of the water, like $25 CO2 sponsons on their recreational kayaks. (They would quickly have been affected by hypothermia, even kayakers in Florida don't last long enough in 70 degree water, before they can no longer hold their heads out of the water, weakened by hypothermia, wearing a PFD, and they drown.) No matter how much flotation inside a recreational kayak, they cannot be re-entered because the kayaks are too unstable full of water. And they cannot be pumped out because the cockpit is too large and sprayskirts can't prevent water coming in faster than it is pumped out. They cannot be rolled, but of course no canoe or kayak can be rolled reliably enough to save a life. The World Champs in Greenland need a rescue powerboat close by, since they cannot always roll. (Sea Kayaker, Feb. 2001, p.41)

(This is just a murderous instruction scam anyway. Put a judge and jury in a swimming pool and see how easily they roll.)

*With sponsons, the water inside is stabilized as neutral buoyancy ballast, making it easier to get back in, since the flooded kayak is lower in the water, and much more stable with the water ballast, coupled with the sponsons, than with sponsons alone. They can be paddled to safety without re-capsizing, and are used by Coast Guards who carry these 10 foot recreational kayaks with sponsons aboard the bigger Zodiac powerboats. The Zodiacs cannot rescue victims along rocky coastlines without risking the Zodiacs too. The 10 foot kayaks are paddled with no sprayskirts (that just add risk of entanglement and encumber the rescue, while not being effective at keeping out breaking seas anyway), fully flooded into the dangerous reef areas along rocky shorelines where Zodiacs fear to go. They attach the victim(s) to a deck and paddle to the Zodiac. These sponsons operate like the sponsons used by the US Special Forces Kayakers of the 10th Airborne, stationed at Fort Devens, near Boston, Massachusetts.

(Rolling is difficult to learn, and time-consuming, and requires lots of practice for even the expert rollers, who might occasionally think they are "bombproof". It is ridiculous to think of this as safety. Most of the kayak and canoe books admit rolling is so unreliable for anyone that a back-up is required. Of course the back-up, a paddle float or some other ridiculous idea, is just as dangerous as a roll, maybe worse. See most of the instruction books again and you will find that the paddle float is generally regarded as a poor substitute for a "reliable roll". Most of the Arctic peoples did not roll. Both the few who did in Greenland and Alaska, and the majority who did not roll, historically had huge rates of death, as I pointed out in detail in my previous book.)

*This is the "bait and switch" scam that murders people. Mary Jagoda and Sarah Aronoff were murdered. Please get this information to the Jagoda and Aronoff families immediately. Use a trusted friend, relative, clergy, and possibly a trusted attorney, as a last resort. Lawyers sometimes mislead grieving families because they are not specialized in these wrongful death civil lawsuits. Most lawyers know nothing about the USCG or the canoe and kayak industry. The money compensation is at most $750,000 US per dead victim. In most cases. This is just a mild cost of doing business for the ACA. Since they cannot get normal insurance from the insurance industry (who are not that crazy!), they self-insure through the Professional Paddlesports Association (who have the same address as the ACA.) Mr. Fetchero was the insurance guy who set this up for them, last time I looked. The PPA website has freely admitted that they cannot buy insurance due to their safety record. Check out their website. They don't buy insurance. Everyone puts money in the "kitty" so they can cover the very few "murder cases" that get to court. Most families are so devastated that they don't have the energy to pursue this terrible task anyway. So the ACA and PPA happily get away with murder: About 100 cases a year in the US, between 25 and 40 in Canada, depending on how many do not get out of the water, wearing a PFD or not.

The pattern here is second degree murder. A fast route to justice is the Attorney General of Massachusetts. I have thouands of pages of evidence that the ACA and other interest groups deliberately lure victims to their deaths, sometimes using the death rates to sell increasingly complex and arcane instruction techniques and equipment. Sometimes the death rates are used to create "an excitement of the risks" in marketing ploys. And of course there are many "experts" who see the dead as examples of Darwin's Law, actually a "good thing" for society. It is hard to believe but I have hundreds of pages of this evidence. Perhaps the best eye-opener is a quote from the American Canoe Association's own magazine:

"All national paddlesports organizations combined comprise just one percent of committed users and a tenth-percent of the total user group...To represent paddlers to regulatory agencies with legitimacy, an organization should represent at least 10 percent of the sport's committed users...The ACA is the paddlesport organization best placed ...to protect paddlers from paddlecraft registration, required education and mandated PFD use...protecting our sport from needless government regulation." (Paddler, Sept./Oct., 2003, p.84)

This tiny group of deadly killers does not represent American paddlers, it just makes canoes and kayaks as dangerous as possible, to murder them, and maybe sell some expensive and time-consuming instruction (that is also good for the ego of these power-hungry killers).

The Attorney General of Massachusetts only has to look to California about any qualms regarding conviction. A lawyer was convicted of second degree Murder of a young woman there, by means of two large vicious dogs. I remember the State Attorney's office being criticized for over-zealous prosecution, to which they pointed out that knowingly having such vicious animals was like "shooting a gun into a crowd," any reasonable person would know someone is going to get killed. All of this is easily understood by a jury.

So it is with the American Canoe Association and their associates, who want no mandatory PFDs or anything, plus the most dangerous canoes and kayaks possible. (Incidentally I was born in Bellefonte, PA on Nov.15, 1949. I am an American citizen as well as a Canadian, living just north of Toronto.)

If you don't mind Susan, I shall email this to the links on the Harbormasters' website. This is helpful for everyone to see a bigger picture, that I have been involved in since 1987, when I invented the sponsons used by the 10th Airbourne at Fort Devens, Massachusetts. Hopefully the Washington Post will be interested in the bigger story as well, involving the US Senate in Washington, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and a lot of other governmental bodies. This story shows how some very good intentions go astray. And some very good people sometimes act quickly to fix this.

Thank you,

In fact, the scientific conclusions of this book, that is also a study of canoe and kayak rescue safety, echo the Migram experiments in Chapter 7 of this book:

All universities in the world, after replicating Milgram experiments in every developed country: Canada, Germany, France, Norway, South Africa, the UK, and the US, etc., stopped these experiments, due to the extreme distress suffered by subjects knowing that they would torture and even kill an innocent "experimental victim", simply because they were asked. I have simply replicated these Milgram experiments with victims who would be tortured to death anyway! Most significantly,  the subjects (canoe and kayak "experts") mostly suffer no remorse, guilt or anxiety whatsoever, regarding their torturing to death of about 120 victims annually. I believe that I have made clear references in other chapters, to major authors who do indeed speak out against the lack of canoe and kayak rescue safety.

But this is the truly remarkable finding of these new experiments! The original Milgram experiments were discontinued at universities around the world due to the ethical concerns regarding the stresses suffered by the experimental subjects, when they discovered that they could torture, even to death, perfectly innocent victims; simply on the instructions of the experimenter.

The power of Degrading Propaganda makes it OK for these innocent citizens, even children, to be tortured to death by Police, Transport Canada and US Coast Guard officials, etc. Once they have been sufficiently degraded, their lives are worthless; as they are blamed for their own deaths to perpetuate the criminal scam. (I have numerous phone conversations with highly-placed Transport Canada officials, and highly-ranked police superintendents, who show a remarkable callousness toward these deaths, even the cruel deaths of children, including Girl Guides. I could not have imagined, years ago, that these facts would be discovered, even among trained police officers!

It is foolish indeed to think that human nature has been changed by the Nuremberg Trials, or other tribunals for Crimes Against Humanity. Constant vigilence is necessary or we shall continue to see illegal torture in the prisons of Iraq, like Abu Graib. Or police violence in Ontario against unarmed native peoples: about 12 men, women and children who occupied their own burial ground at Ipperwash. These are just a few recent examples. There are many others within North American society.
 


Profile of Author:

The author has several US patents that specifically focus on the main cause of canoe and kayak deaths.

He is the first author to state:

1. Canoes and kayaks must be more stable in emergencies, than before capsize, in order to ensure that victims get out of the water, and stay out, to avoid death by hypothermia.

2. Canoes and kayaks must be capable of being paddled fully flooded to safety, in view of vulnerability to flooding and problems pumping out.

3. This capability is created  in 5 seconds by stabilizing, gas-powered floats, that are otherwise unobtrusively concealed until needed in emergencies.

4. Canoes and kayaks are thereby transformed from the deadliest type of watercraft, into effective rescue craft: Capable of rescuing other swimmers dying in the water, as well as saving any paddler.

"Remember, the self-rescue method that you rely on should get you out of the water fast and leave you in a more stable position than you were in when you capsized." (John Dowd, Sea Kayaking, 1997, pp. 91-92)

Tim Ingram was a Scoutmaster and YMCA camp counsellor many years ago. He attributes his integrity and determination to protect the value of human life, to his experiences with both organizations as a young person.

Urgent: Immediate Attention RCMP, Please, Oct. 4, 2004

Dear RCMP:

Re: RCMP Investigation of Canadian Coast Guard Canoe and Kayak Murders

Please investigate these 500 murders by the Office of Boating Safety, CCG, and lay charges immediately. About 500 Canadians have been left to die in the water since Jon Churchill, Superintendent of Boating Safety, covered-up the Sponson Study by the dutiful Search and Rescue Patrol Officer from CCG Headquarters, Victoria, B.C., August 1994. SAR Colin ___ was sent away, and the Sponsons were denied to 500 dead Canadians, to enrich canoe and kayak instructors, selling expensive and fraudulent instruction that cannot get victims out of the water, where they die.

The motive is obvious. Instructors want to sell expensive and time-consuming instruction that has killed 200 Canadian children since the Temiskaming tragedy. Churchill and others want to enrich their friends.

The Canadian Coast Guard has no database of their own, accounting for much confusion and manipulation of Canadian death statistics. However, the Canadian death rate is over 2 and a half times the US death rate, no matter how the figures are compared. Canada has colder water than Florida, and many canoe and kayak deaths occur in Florida water while wearing a PFD. Victims must get out of the water to live.

If you look at the bailer, rope, etc., Coast Guard-required safety equipment for canoes and kayaks in Canada, you will see that this only increases the likelihood of deaths, since victims are not warned that they will die if they don't get out of the water. The Coast Guard does not warn that they will die if they do not get out of the water! On CBC radio, July 2002, Superintendent Garapick following Churchill's lead, stated these deaths could be elimininated by simply wearing a PFD! An outright lie. Over one third of the dead victims are already wearing a PFD. In the US over 35% are dead wearing a PFD (USCG BARD 2002.)

Victims try to bail canoes, before giving up and realizing that they must swim to shore. There are many close calls and deaths because time has been wasted trying to bail out the canoe or kayak, before realizing that this is futile. The 5 second CO2 sponsons, to get victims out of the water immediately, have been obvious to save lives for over 4 years in Canada. The Canadian Coast Guard has been informed for 4 years! Now it is approximately 100-160 deaths later, depending on the database quoted. I have the email replies from them 4 years ago.

I just want to add these facts because you need to know that the Canadian Coast Guard will deny everything until they are brought to justice. They will attempt to mislead the investigators, using all kinds of specious reasoning. I just want you to know that I have thousands of pages of documentation regarding the Coast Guard crimes. I am extremely well prepared now, having heard all of their specious arguments against sponsons, to leave canoe and kayak victims in the water.

For example, I told Mr. Churchill about CO2 sponsons personally, on the phone and in emails over 2 years ago. (The most conservative number of Canadian canoe and kayak deaths since then, according to the Canadian Red Cross, is over 50 dead.) Churchill was extremely evasive and finally Mr. Cote (I have no accent egule etc.on this keyboard), senior general counsel of DFO, told me that I was "frivolous and vexacious" in a letter to me over 2 years ago. Cote said the USCG had no plans to have CO2 sponsons on canoes and kayaks, so the Canadian Coast Guard felt no need to amend their program! (Nor is Canada in Iraq.) I have all of the emails. Mr. Churchill took medical leave a few months later, and then retired. His deadly work goes on.

I mention these facts because these are the tactics of the Coast Guard's Office of Boating Safety. This Canadian scandal is large, with extensive planning to cover-up these deaths.

It is terrible to see the pain of these families, especially after the 2 Canadian Girl Guides died. The coroner's inquest did not address CO2 canoe sponsons, although very well informed, because the coroner could find no Coast Guard sponson studies. (In fact the Canadian Coast Guard SAR sponson study in August 1994 resulted in Mr. Churchill punishing the SAR officer by literally "shipping him out".) I have these details, that should be easy for investigators to verify.

I just want to emphasize again that this cover-up is relatively effective. This is why cover-ups are so damaging to a democracy. Investigators need to know that they will be tricked repeatedly. I can now, at every turn, give them specific information to sink the Coast Guard cover-up. Eventually criminals do get caught. Especially in government where there is a web of documentation in existence, regarding the truth, if one has the energy and integrity to pursue it.

On the face of this scandal I don't blame some police officers' disbelief that so many easily preventable deaths would be caused by the Coast Guard. It is hard to believe now when airbags in cars are commonplace, unless you see it yourself. All that is needed is motive: Much more money is made from canoe and kayak instruction, than the profit from sales of these cheap and simple watercraft. And Churchill wanted to help his friends in the Canadian canoe and kayak world. I have very specific details here, as elsewhere.

The Canadian SAR officer just walked down the street from Coast Guard headquarters, Victoria, B.C., in August 1994, to interview the instructors at Ocean River Sports/Current Designs. The instructors told Colin ___ , the Canadian Coast Guard Search and Rescue Patrol Officer that sponsons were a much better safety device than anything else, since the craft is much more stable, even full of water, than before capsize. The canoe or kayak in fact is transformed into a Life Raft that can be paddled to pick up other victims dyng in the water and paddle them to shore. These were just the first generation 1987 sponsons! The CO2 sponsons inflate in 5 seconds, to provide much more stability with no instruction or practice necessary; any more than how to wear a PFD.

This is all so obvious: 300 dead Canadians according to the Red Cross, or 500 dead Canadians (according to an editorial in Kanawa magazine, Winter 2003, from the head of the Canadian Recreational Canoeing Association); since August 1994, when the Canadian Coast Guard SAR study was covered-up to make money for the instructors' lobby groups.

The instructors want to make money. They don't want CO2 sponsons that permit Canadian citizens to rescue themselves without expensive, time-consuming, deadly instruction, that requires "practice, practice, practice", as advertised in the Coast Guard funded sea kayaking booklets, included in every issue of Kanawa magazine! If you have any questions about my credibility, I can refer you to many pieces of information contained in government documents in Canada or on the internet.

I have an eleven year old daughter, the same age as the Girl Guides who died. Just think about 500 Canadian families who have been ripped apart by these needless deaths. Charge them with negligence if nothing else. But stop these deaths! It is quite clear that Churchill and Garapick know that refusing to let victims get out of the water will murder them or their kids.

If the RCMP does not act immediately these deaths will continue. Canadian citizens have no chance against the criminal actions of a large goverment organization that lures them into water with no means to escape. Pretty obvious isn't it?

Mr. Layton, Mr. Broadbent, and Mr. Angus, NDP

Mr. Duceppe, BQ

Re: RCMP Investigation Canadian Coast Guard Canoe and Kayak Murders

No word yet from you. We have planned and deliberate action by Mr Churchill and others at the Canadian Coast Guard to deny citizens any way to get out of the water. And a very large number have died in the water wearing PFDs, particularly children, who have a higher rate of PFD use.

The easiest key to understanding the history of this action is the Level Flotation Standard, the law for small boats under 20 feet, to have foam under the seats etc. so they float like a life raft or rescue platform. Canada, Australia, and most other progressive countries have this law. For example, the USCG Level Flotation Standard 33 CFR 183. Issued April 18, 1977; Effective August 1, 1978 "Establishes level flotation standards on rowboats and outboard boats less than 20 feet in length, the boats most often involved in swamping and capsizing accidents, so that the boat will float level when swamped and provide a safe platform until rescue."

Now, at that time they could not figure out how to make canoes and kayaks comply because foam under the seats would not work (these craft are too narrow.) So all Coast Guards have granted "safety exemptions" to canoes and kayaks, endorsing instruction that does not work, no matter how intensive the training, and high physical fitness of the paddlers. (The 12 dead students wearing PFDs in Lake Temiskaming tried to get back into the canoes by trying to empty them over uncapsized canoes alongside. This succeeded only in capsizing more canoes. Only the boys who swam to shore immediately survived. They had years of experience and training. Authors like famous canoeing Canadian Bill Mason, then living near Meech Lake, nearby Ottawa, addressed this tragedy by recommending flotation to stabilize canoes. Unfortunately he had no sponsons concept to provide maximum stability with lightweight (1 lb.), easily concealed and inexpensive, inflatable CO2 sponsons.)

I invented the first generation of inflatable canoe and kayak sponsons in 1987. (See the US and Canadian patent offices.) As as former Scoutmaster, and YMCA canoe instructor 40 years ago, I saw an obvious necessity to increase safety for these vulnerable craft. I had no idea at that time that anyone would be against this!

And I certainly did not expect that Mr. Chretien and his cabinet would end up leaving 2 little Canadian Girl Guides in PFDs to die in the water, only one month after my last plea to them and the Canadian Coast Guard! See these emails! I gave up on Canada stopping these deaths until recently. (I expect our minority government will be much more careful.)

So do you think I am "too hard" on the Coast Guard? (I think the Canadian SAR people are genuine lifesavers and They have never been against any kind of canoe and kayak sponsons. Just the opposite. I keep them "confidential" since Mr. Churchill sent one SAR officer recommending sponsons away, in August 1994, Victoria, B.C.) Do you think I am justified, after 10 years of fighting the deliberate actions of the Canadian Coast Guard to enrich their "friends" at the expense of dead Canadians and their little kids?

I think that you can see now that this is the largest death rate scandal in Canadian history. Eventually this will become a huge class action lawsuit against all of the killing Canadians. Most citizens don't know that approximately 500 Canadians died in this scandal, due to CCG Churchill and all parties since. The statistics are very poor here, varying between 350 and 500. But it is easy for a law firm to find the next of kin to at least 300 dead.

I think that I am justified in labelling certain parties below as "murderers". I just wish I had not done this sooner, in an attempt to ensure that the Government of Canada stops this scandal as soon as possible. It looks like the "murderers" for many years have been afraid to try to "shut me up" in court. They don't even peep about "libel". We must get this into court as soon as possible, unless you want more dead Canadians at an annual death rate ranging from 25-40 a year.

Meanwhile I shall make certain that the "murderers" are warned frequently about the inevitable consequences of cooly and deliberately murdering Canadians and their children. Please remove the Level Flotation Standard exemptions for canoes and kayaks now, to permit CO2 sponsons, in memory of Megan Mitchell and Erica Auclair, two precious Girl Guides who were left to die by the CCG and the Chretien government. Let's fix this scandal fast! Thank you in advance,

(P.S. If you think that I am saving these lives because I have a huge ego and a lust for money, ask Revenue Canada what I make and consider that I have arrived at this point since 1987. I have as much lust for money as your average police officer, paramedic or heart surgeon who all are interested primarily in saving lives. I believe in saving innocent lives. That is the best feeling possible. Money does not remotely compare to saving lives.

The murderers at the Coast Guard and Canadian Safe Boating Council are much worse than fraud artists, posing as "safety" oriented. Let's get them before a Canadian jury now. Just a little charge of "mischief" or "negligence" from the RCMP will get them into court, to begin. Other charges will soon come to mind. And the class action lawsuits.

Many years ago I thought diplomacy and polite commonsense was enough. It is not. What do you think is justified to make these killings stop instead? I am counting on the RCMP and the Government of Canada now, in the short term. Class action lawsuits against the CCG, CSBC members and others making canoes and kayaks as deadly as possible, will seal the fate of these murderers in the long term. They now have their place in history, and the journals of criminology. I shall see to that.)

Re: RCMP Investigation of Canadian Coast Guard Canoe and Kayak Murders

The RCMP has apparently begun some kind of investigation into this scandal, finally, after years of tortured Canadian deaths. In case you are unaware, canoes and kayaks have the highest fatality rate of any boat, in both the US and Canada, with over 35% of the dead now wearing PFDs.

In both World Wars all combatants were provided life rafts as well as lifejackets since human life is not sustained in water for long. Against this knowledge the Canadian Coast Guard has continued the pattern of denying canoe and kayak victims a means to get out of the water for about 500 deaths, since the cover-up of their own SAR study in 1994.

Mr. Clark MP and Mr. Moore (replying for Mr. Reynolds MP) responded to this scandal over 2 years ago, but it went nowhere. As you can see below, even Girl Guides have paid the ultimate price.

I ask all of you to Please ensure that the RCMP pursues this scandal immediately. Without your input, these easily preventable deaths will continue. These are planned murders, since leaving the victims in the water without a simple means to escape is obviously a planned pattern, without remorse, year after year.

I am well prepared for court with thousands of pages of airtight documentation of this highest death rate scandal in Canadian history. It is all amazingly obvious to any citizen with a taste for justice and the value of human life. It is almost unbelievable that PM Chretien and his cabinet repeatedly ignored my emails regarding this scandal that has claimed many Canadian children, for years.

Thank you. (You will see in the below that the 2 OPP officers sent to my home by the RCMP to "find out more about concerns in an email" at 2:30 pm, Tuesday, September 28, indicated some kind of RCMP investigation.)

RCMP Investigation of CCG, OBS, CSBC Canoe and Kayak Murder Program

Yesterday afternoon the RCMP asked the OPP to ask me more about these terrible murders, resulting in approximately 500 canoe and kayak deaths in Canada since Jon Churchill deliberately covered-up the CCG Sponson Study by the Canadian Coast Guard SAR officer, August 1994.

I explained to the OPP that Mr. Lecuyer RCMP and Brad Schlorff OPP, both being on the CSBC website, suggest an endorsement of these canoe and kayak murders that does not in fact exist. I have spoken with Brad Schlorff on several occasions two years ago, and it was apparent that he thought that the Level Flotation Standard, creating a rescue platform to get victims out of the water was a good idea (a $25 CO2 sponson container concealed at the beam ends of these vulnerable craft.) Like air bags in cars.

However, Brad and others at OPP headquarters in Orillia felt that they could not prosecute anything then. (Brad impressed me as being a very dedicated officer who was caught between obvious action to save the lives of citizens, and a complex legal and political system. The OPP and RCMP, among other police organizations around the world know what I am saying here.) I am impressed with the RCMP and the OPP co-operating yesterday afternoon! Good for all of you.

(Brad, OPP and Guy, RCMP please step aside here. You can have now, no complete idea of the extent of the pain and suffering deliberately inflicted by the Coast Guard perpetrators, the Byers and CSBC company, and the taxpayer-funded canoe and kayak murder programs.) This complete evidence needs to be seen in court immediately:

More deaths than the terrible Air India bombing. Dedicated planning equal to a Homolka or Bernardo. And maximum pain inflicted on children and families, leaving Girl Guides and anyone else canoeing and kayaking, to die in the water in terror, knowing they will never see loved ones again.

This must go to court before a Canadian Jury immediately. The horrible extent of this scandal and the unspeakable pain, inflicted by these sadistic murders of Canadian citizens, must be addressed immediately. It will not go away. And more Canadian children and adults are now endangered at this moment. They are counting on the quick action by the RCMP here.

Thank you again,

Dear Mr. Lapierre and Mr. Cotler:

Re: Canadian Coast Guard Office of Boating Safety, Canoe and Kayak Murders

These persons employed by the Canadian Coast Guard have deliberately murdered hundreds of Canadians by denying them $25 CO2 sponsons on canoes and kayaks: D. Hatche, J. Murray, D. Miller, P.Garapick, L. Gagnon, C. McDougall. CO2 sponsons are as simple as air bags in cars, concealed in tiny containers, and inflating in 5 seconds to get victims out of the water. Most of the 200 Canadian children murdered this way were already wearing PFDs. They had no means to get out of the water.

The Level Flotation Law for small boats uses properly placed flotation to create a rescue platform to get out of the water. But canoes and kayaks are exempted from this law despite the fact that they are the most vulnerable small boat to flooding and capsize.

P. Garapick and J. Churchill covered up the Canadian Coast Guard Sponson Study by a dutiful Search and Rescue Officer, August 1994. The Transportation Safety Board of Canada Report Number M93W0008 still exists:
"2.8 Emergency and Safety Equipment: The side sponsons and/or paddle floats were not inflated and installed ahead of time to assist the kayaker to reboard after a possible capsizing or to increase the stability of the kayaks. Consequently, when the kayakers entered an area of rough seas, they had to keep paddling to keep their kayaks upright. Each kayak was equipped with these floats. The secondary use of the sponsons, i.e. to increase the stability of the kayaks, was not foreseen before the kayaks encountered severe weather."

The Canadian Coast Guard Sponson Study is about the same as the US Military Sponson Study a few months earlier:

"basic, no nonsense...dramatically increase...safety and...capabilities... It should be noted that within the North American civilian sea kayak industry there is some controversy...Sea Wings' direct competition with...the paddle float...the merits of Sea Wings...far outweigh those of the paddlefloat...During the IMKP 1994 we used Sea Wings with all our rescue boats as back-up flotation/stability for awashed kayaks needing assistance pumping out in heavy seas. In addition, IMKP's rescue kayak was fitted with Sea Wings on a permanent basis which allowed us to be far more stable in possible rescue operations...Sea Wings dramatically increase re-entry operations with capsized boats. Indeed, even with heavily loaded boats (those approaching 1000 lbs.) most paddlers can easily re-enter the kayak. However the most notable advantage of Sea Wings is with lightly loaded boats; ie, those kayaks which are far less stable (more tippy) than fully loaded boats. Recovery operations are far more difficult in these boats and most students have extreme difficulty in mastering the necessary techniques. This is compounded in heavy seas. Sea Wings offers an almost guaranteed method of re-entering a lightly loaded kayak even in heavy seas. Stability increase in heavy seas. Paddling in extremely heavy seas is difficult. Sea Wings offer the crews an additional method of dealing with such sea states. One of the most dangerous situations a detachment can find itself in is that of towing a disabled crew with full operational loads in heavy seas at night. The employment of Sea Wings dramatically increases the safety margin. In my opinion, this is one of the sponsons' most important contributions to MAROPS. " Invitational Military Kayak Paddle 1994 Evaluation"

It will be noted that many of the CCG killers are women,, including the deadly Byers below. And they have recently murdered two Girl Guides. Homolka is just as deadly as Bernardo. All it takes is opportunity. The evidence of their deadly intent to deliberately leave canoe and kayak victims to die in the water is a chilling study, of the most evil and cruel action in modern history. These killers apparently enjoy murdering innocent victims in canoes and kayaks, including Girl Guides, although it is very simple to prevent these deaths. Air bags in cars, life rafts, rescue platforms, and CO2 inflatable PFDs are commonplace in modern society.

Get these despicable killers into court and tried before a Canadian jury immediately! This matter was addressed by F. Cote, senior legal counsel, DFO, in 2002 by saying that it was OK for Churchill (who also cut the Rescue Diver program, resulting in the deaths last year of children and adults in an overturned fishing boat near Vancouver), to murder more Canadians in canoes and kayaks.

Just get these horrible killers before a Canadian Jury immediately. Note the sponsorship funding to the canoe and kayak murder program in Quebec and Garapick also acting for CSBC Byers in Marketing/Membership, to murder as many as possible. Garapick lures Canadian corporate and taxpayer dollars to murder Canadians in return for advertising "boating safety".
Garapick, Byers and the murder clique meet in luxury hotels at taxpayer expense to deny $25 CO2 sponsons to eleven year old Girl Guides. This Canadian murder program uses Canadian tax dollars.

Think of the 11 year old Girl Guides dying in terror, fearing they would never see their family again. Think of the families denied the means to prevent such a tragedy from ever happening again. Forced to watch their Canadian Girl Guide deaths be wasted, instead of ensuring no more Canadian children are ever murdered in a canoe or kayak again.

Just get these murderers to justice before a Canadian jury immediately. I have thousands of pages documenting the despicable actions of these horrible murderers. This story will eventually come out because it is impossible to stop. Who wants to stop canoe and kayak safety?

The OPP and RCMP are here advised that continued association with this band of murderers is a criminal act. The OPP were blamed for not rescuing the Girl Guides in time, although they were denied the CO2 sponsons rescue platform to get out of the water immediately, long before the most rapid emergency force in the world could ever reach them. Most Canadian police officers and the OPP want CO2 canoe and kayak sponsons immediately, for obvious reasons. (The late Bill Mason stated there was no means to prevent canoe and kayak deaths except strategic canoe flotation, "Song of the Paddle", p.126, after the 12 children died on Lake Temiskaming.) Millions of Canadians on a Jury want $25 CO2 sponsons too.

This matter will not go away. These deaths per exposure hours are a hundred times greater than deaths in cars. This death rate is the highest in the history of Canada. These despicable Canadian murderers will be eventually tried by jury. Already they have made history...SNIP...

Oct. 8, 2004

Dear RCMP:

I have left messages on your phone answering machine (993-6884) for 4 days. And you have several emails and fax copies. Obviously the RCMP should not condone killing Girl Guides and other Canadians by luring them into waters they cannot escape in canoes and kayaks. They die wearing PFDs that they are told is all they need. And you know that an RCMP member, G. Lecuyer has been a member of this group at the Canadian Coast Guard for years.

Get these murderers to court, before a Canadian jury immediately. Canadians attend to the tragic death of 1 submariner unaware that hundreds of Canadians have been murdered by the Coast Guard in canoes and kayaks. They need to know that the RCMP will protect them. This is your job and your duty.

You contacted the OPP to get ask me further questions about this crime last week, Sept. 28, 2004. The RCMP would be wise to return my calls. You cannot combat crime, including terrorism, unless you co-operate with citizens. You don't want to allow the killings of Canadian children or anyone else. Do a good job.

Deaths in House of Commons

The tragic death in a Canadian submarine was covered in the House yesterday. The two deaths in kayaks in the last 2 weeks were not.

The Search and Rescue Officers of the Canadian Coast Guard want canoe and kayak sponsons to save lives now, as in the 1994 SAR sponson study. The proud SAR personnel who risk their lives for little pay want to save these canoe and kayak victims. When the RCMP and Members of the House want details I shall give you more confidential information. Don't forget what Churchill did to the SAR officer in 1994 and 500 deaths. And Please don't be naive (this keyboard is primitive.) This is a ruthless cover-up. The evil-doers have a lot at stake.

This Canadian Scandal is similar to that of MP Samuel Plimsoll's Parliament in 1870. Now however, insurers in the UK do not over-pay claims on overloaded vessels, we have the Plimsoll mark on every vessel in the world, and it is against the law to make money by killing large numbers of citizens and their children. But we have in Canada a small and very deadly political lobby group that makes money from canoe and kayak deaths.

Compare the attitude of Canadian SAR personnel to attitudes of Churchill, Garapick, and the others in the CCG Office of Boating Safety, at meetings in luxury hotels to make canoes and kayaks as deadly as possible for the instructors lobby group and their own interests as well. (I have details on the latter CCG "own interests", regarding false budget savings!)
Do you think that you will lose votes if you make canoes and kayaks safer with $25 CO2 sponsons, so that they become far superior to the rescue paddleboards used by Australian lifeguards. Of course not. The mother of a dead Girl Guide in terrible grief has already posted on the internet what she wants the Canadian government to do. The deadly canoe and kayak lobby group certainly does not want this publicity.

And we are certain that the RCMP does not want to appear as condoning the murders of more Girl Guides or any more Canadian children. Compare over 1000 Canadian canoe and kayak deaths (including 200 Canadian children) in 20 years, to MP Plimsoll's 11,000 deaths over 20 years in the Largest maritime fleet in the world at that time. Canada's canoes and kayks have a much higher death rate in exposure hours!

The Canadian public ask why the murder (what else is it?) of innocent citizens and their kids is tolerated at all. While obviously the death of 1 Canadian submariner is covered appropriately.

Please don't allow the RCMP and the Canadian Parliament to encourage more murders of these innocent Canadians and their children, in canoes and kayaks.

The instructors lobby group is a "house of cards", that has been afraid to see me in court or any public forum for many years. Why would the RCMP or the House of Commons try to protect these murderers?

I didn't think so. Please get moving fast. Tim Ingram, 231 Gordon Drive, Penetanguishene, Ontario L9M 1Y2

One submarine death since 1950, but 25-40 canoe and kayak deaths in Canada annually. More Canadian children to die soon. See the dead Girl Guides' faces on the webpage link below.

The Level Flotation Standard necessary for life was explained to Churchill in 1994. Garapick and Churchill refused the CO2 sponsons (like $25 air bags in cars, concealed in the beam ends) in 2002. PM Chretien, Cauchon and Thibault knowingly left Canadians in the water to die. I have the emails and letters.

The Ontario legislature is interested in passing the Level Flotation Law for canoes and kayaks. Canada has a much higher death rate than the US.

See the Ontario Law webpage with lots of pictures and mention of the Canadian Coast Guard Office of Boating Safety Murder Scam. It just does not get any worse for an elected Canadian government. Enron only stole 50 billion dollars.
See the pictures of the dead Girl Guides 8 weeks after my last email to Chretien and Ministers:

You are requested to stop sending these emails to the Canadian Coast Guard and the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary. You were advised some weeks ago that the CCG was reviewing your concerns and was also discussing this matter with the USCG. To date there appears to be virtually no support for your proposal in Canada.

Churchill and Garapick continued to leave dead Canadians in the water, refusing them any means to escape. To Date 2004, this has left approximately 65-95 dead using available databases. This is the largest planned murder scandal in Canadian history. Churchill went on medical leave and retired shortly afterwards.

Everything Churchill says above is a lie. Just as he covered up the Canadian Coast Guard Search and Rescue Sponson Study, August 1994.

Churchill and others wanted to enrich canoe and kayak instructors who were their friends, in Churchill's case, Ocean River Sports/Current Designs, retailer and manufacturer in Victoria, B.C. The Temiskaming disaster killing 12 boys showed that physically fit 16 year old boys with years of training could not rescue themselves. Only the ones who swam to shore immediately, survived. Over 1000 Canadians, including 200 children have died since then in Canadian canoes and kayaks.

Bring this scandal from the previous government before the House immediately. The RCMP will be blowing the whistle very soon. They have no choice between duty to the public in Canada, and continuing murder of citizens by the Coast Guard branch of this Canadian government.

It is risky for any Canadian government to murder Canadians by denying them $25 air bags in these times. How much clearer do you need this? All of your offices see this notification, plus the RCMP. How much more do you want to see in a Canadian court, before a Canadian judge and jury?

Attention Minister of Public Safety, RCMP DUTY 613-990-9077

The RCMP must lay charges of negligence, manslaughter, etc. against criminals wthin the Office of Boating Safety, Canadian Coast Guard (now part of Transport Canada.)

Evidence below and 1000 other pages show that "air bags", like car air bags, the only means to get victims out of the water, to prevent canoe and kayak deaths, have been denied to Canadian citizens for many years. Instead the canoe and kayak lobby groups have been enriched at the expense of 350-500 Canadian lives since 1994. This corrupt and deadly criminal practice with the Office of Boating Safety is far more serious than the Air India bombing.

Failure of the RCMP to lay charges in the past several weeks has left several more dead. The RCMP must act quickly without cowardice, evasion of duty or dereliction of duty, as required by the law of Canada.

Thank you. I am sure that the RCMP can understand that Canadian citizens have been cheated of their basic civil rights to safe canoes and kayaks for 10 years, for simple greed. This has killed huge numbers, since they cannot die if they are able to get out of the water. Automatic inflating CO2 sponsons, like air bags in cars, Coast Guard approved CO2 powered PFDs, and CO2 life rafts are plain and obvious in any court.

The evidence against Churchill and Garapick in the Office of Boating Safety is overwhelming. They deliberately have ensured that canoes and kayaks, the most vulnerable type of watercraft, are as deadly as possible. Any jury in Canada will convict on these criminal charges when they discover that victims cannot rescue themselves in a swimming pool without these simple $25 floats, like air bags in cars. The 12 boys who died in Lake Temiskaming could not rescue themselves despite wearing PFDs, despite years of training. Only the boys who swam to shore immediately were able to escape death by hypothermia effects. (Body heat loss in water is 25 times the heat loss in air.)

There are thousands of pages of documentation. The Canadian Coast Guard has been very effective in covering up this simple and inexpensive means to save lives. The grieving mother of one dead Girl Guide knows that it is impossible to rescue victims in any canoe, without CO2 flotation at the beam ends in emergencies. Most Canadians do not know this until a terrible tragedy makes this obvious. Canadians mistakenly assume that the Canadian Coast Guard tries to protect them with the safest canoes and kayaks possible.

These deaths, 350-500 over 10 years, depending on which database is used, comprise the largest lifesaving scandal in history. Centuries of lifesaving principles focus on one point: Get the victims out of the water or they will certainly die. ...SNIP.. of original 20 pages.

Today a large number of victims die in PFDs, like the Girl Guides, the Temiskaming students, and many other children. Life Rafts were used in both world wars since it is common knowledge that PFDs alone cannot save lives; since PFDs cannot get victims out of the water

Note that the Canadian Coast Guard Level Flotation Law for all small boats under 20 feet requires flotation under seats etc., so that the flooded craft provides a rescue platform to get victims out of the water. But canoes and kayaks are specifically exempted from this commonsense law, despite the fact that proper sponsons actually transform canoes and kayaks into superior rescue craft themselves, capable of getting more victims out of the water than the original paddlers, and paddling everyone to shore while fully flooded. This obvious lifesaving capability, with no training or practice necessary, any more than pulling a cord to activate the CO2 floats or "sponsons", underlines that rescue must simply work, as reliably as CO2 inflatable PFDs or Life Rafts. Human life cannot be trusted to "enough" practice, or expensive and time-consuming instruction; years of which did not get the 12 boys out of Lake Temiskaming, nor save the eleven-year-old Girl Guides who recently died in terror, just wanting to be home with their loving families.

The Coast Guard in fact has done everything possible to kill as many people as possible in canoes and kayaks. The RCMP must get this terrible crime to court immediately, to save the Canadians who will continue to die needlessly, otherwise. The Coast Guard's Office of Boating Safety has abused the trust of Canadian citizens to enrich special interests that make money selling difficult, expensive, and time-consuming instruction that does not get people out of the water, like the Temiskaming tragedy for example.

The Canadian people do not know that their own government has made canoes and kayaks into killing machines, a hundred times more deadly in exposure hours than any car with seatbelts and airbags. The RCMP has the duty to charge the corrupt members of the Canadian Coast Guard now and bring them to court immediately. Unless the RCMP brings this to the public forum of a courtroom, the Coast Guard will continue to leave innocent victims to die in the water. And the grieving families of the Girl Guides will only suffer terribly in silence, knowing that their precious little daughters could have been easily saved instead. And worse, the lives of these innocent Girl Guides as well as many other Canadian children have been entirely wasted; instead of ensuring that such monumental tragedies as these easily preventable deaths of Canadian children, cannot happen again.

This is the wish of the loved ones in the memory of Canadian canoe and kayak victims. They did not deserve to die. The RCMP must ensure that these victims are not forgotten, that justice must happen for the berieved families, and no more deliberate canoe and kayak killings are permitted in Canada. The RCMP must get this to court immediately, as is their duty to Canadians, to protect them from the corrupt, cold-blooded, and very dangerous Office of Boating Safety at the Canadian Coast Guard. One submarine death since 1950 and Canadian submarines are now "grounded."

The RCMP must act fast.

Thank you, Tim Ingram

Dear Officer Lorraine:

I am sorry that I did not catch your full name in the phone Friday, but thank you for listening to me so courteously on the phone, to this story of criminal wrong-doing within the Canadian Coast Guard's Office of Boating Safety. Unfortunately your email address did not work.

I include this email below sent to MPs. I believe the RCMP is the best agent to quickly ensure that these lives are saved by bringing this matter to court immediately. Any jury in Canada will convict on charges of negligence, even on manslaughter, given the large number of dead left in the water, especially the children. The mother of one eleven year old Girl Guide knows now that there was no way to rescue her dead eleven year old daughter in a canoe!

The cold-blooded nature of this crime, on the part of the Canadian Coast Guard's Office of Boating safety is very chilling. They know that they are murdering children as well as adults. They even contradict CCG Search and Rescue personnel, who want to save lives.

Mr. Churchill and the Canadian Coast Guard know that people die in canoes and kayaks when they cannot escape the water. The CCG Search and Rescue people know this too. It is an obvious fact. Just like the obvious fact that Mr. Churchill (and others since), delberately leave innocent citizens in the water to die.

Until the RCMP acts, the Canadian Coast Guard will continue this deadly cover-up. I have thousands of pages showing their deliberate intent to kill these innocent and helpless people.

If the RCMP does not charge Churchill and others at the Office of Boating Safety, then the RCMP will be saying OK to luring hundreds of Canadians into the water with no means of escape. This is the largest murder scandal (what is this but 2nd degree murder) in RCMP and Canadian history. I am only a short distance from the birthplace of Sir Sam Steele. The original RCMP officer of course would not let corrupt government employees like Churchill and his colleagues leave Canadians in the water to die.

The RCMP must press charges immediately. The more wait, the more deaths. And this is the highest death rate in Canada. Canoes and kayaks are 100 times more deadly than cars. Please put this on the fast track for the RCMP to lay charges immediately. They have wasted almost 2 weeks to date by not charging Churchill and Garapick by now. See the email from Churchill below. The pattern of killing is easy to investigate, from Victoria B.C. 1994 to date.

The Canadian public are inclined to trust the Coast Guard with their safety. This trust has killed hundreds of innocent people. The RCMP must protect innocent Canadians now. Canadians entrust the RCMP to protect them, especially against corrupt government organizations like this Coast Guard murder cult.

Please get this RCMP investigation on the fast track now. The RCMP doesn't have a higher priority than this case now. Leaving people in the water with no escape is one of the most efficient ways to create high numbers of mass death known to society. There is no higher death rate than canoes and kayaks. This is no surprise.

Leaving Girl Guides and hundreds of other Canadians in the water to die is just about the best way to kill hundreds of innocent people that any terrorist could think of. You have enough here to lay charges of Criminal Negligence Causing Death, or Manslaughter now. The RCMP can lay a milder charge now and raise more charges later, as the full scope of the carnage is revealed.

Please act now. This will not go away. We do not want this story to become one of misplaced trust in the RCMP and failure to protect the public.

Thanks, Tim Ingram

PS: I really appreciate the attention of the RCMP to this scandal today. There is no hope for ordinary citizens against a powerful government body like the Coast Guard otherwise.

Dear Members of Parliament:

Canadian Canoe and Kayak Deaths Ranging 25-40 Annually, Compare to Submarine Deaths in House of Commons
The focus on the tragic death in a Canadian submarine is well-placed. All lives are precious. We must acknowledge however the 2 kayak deaths in Canada in the past 3 weeks too. Canoes and kayaks are much more dangerous than Canadian submarines. The victims have no means of getting out of the water and they die of hypothermia wearing a PFD. Over 40% of the Canadian dead in canoes and kayaks are wearing PFDs. J. Churchill and P. Garapick at the Canadian Coast Guard have denied victims any means to escape death in the water for over 10 years. Last year 2 Canadian Girl Guides were the victims of this deadly Canadian Coast Guard scam, killing about 500, including many children over the past 10 years.

You understand that a Canadian submarine death is very tragic, but you do not understand that canoes and kayaks are far more deadly. The Canadian Coast Guard, responsible for legislation of the Level Flotation Standard for all small boats, excludes canoes and kayaks. These craft have no safety provisions for capsize or flooding. This Level Flotation Standard necessary for life was explained to Churchill in 1994. Garapick and Churchill refused the CO2 sponsons (like $25 air bags in cars, concealed in the beam ends) in 2002.

The Temiskaming disaster killing 12 boys showed that physically fit 16 year old boys with years of training could not rescue themselves. Only the ones who swam to shore immediately, survived. Over 1000 Canadians, including 200 children have died since then in Canadian canoes and kayaks.

Please stop these terrible deaths by raising this in the House. I have thousands of pages of documentation.

The RCMP apparently will not confirm or deny their investigation begun last week, September 28, 2004, when the OPP officers asked me for more information. I have watched Canada allow these easily preventable deaths for a decade since CCG Churchill decided to murder Canadians, and he found support from others in the Office of Boating Safety. Churchill was involved in the RESCUE DIVER controversy. (See the deaths of the family in an over-turned fishing boat near Vancouver, also covered on national TV.)

I ask you all to do something that is very meaningful to all Canadians: Save the lives of 25-40 dead Canadians in canoes and kayaks annually, by raising this in the House. Otherwise Canadians will never know, since the RCMP isn't talking. How you would feel about 25-40 Members of the House dying annually! Now think about the Canadian families affected by canoes and kayaks. Think about 2 Girl Guides. The Canadians about to die in canoes and kayaks deserve the same attention as one submariner. Any submariner would agree. And so would any Canadian jury.

(Just put the judge and jury in a swimming pool, to try to rescue themselves in a canoe or kayak without CO2 sponsons, like the dead boys in Temiskaming!)

Canoes and kayaks have by far the highest death rate in exposure hours in Canada, for a good reason.

The Search and Rescue Officers of the Canadian Coast Guard want canoe and kayak sponsons to save lives now, as in the 1994 SAR sponson study. The proud SAR personnel who risk their lives for little pay want to save these canoe and kayak victims. When the RCMP and Members of the House want details I shall give you more confidential information. Don't forget what Churchill did to the SAR officer in 1994 and 500 deaths. This is a ruthless cover-up. The evil-doers have a lot at stake.
This Canadian Scandal is similar to that of MP Samuel Plimsoll's Parliament in 1870. Now however, insurers in the UK do not over-pay claims on overloaded vessels, we have the Plimsoll mark on every vessel in the world, and it is against the law to make money by killing large numbers of citizens and their children. But we have in Canada a small and very deadly political lobby group that makes money from canoe and kayak deaths.

Combine water with deliberate Safety Fraud and you will get an extremely high rate of death! Water safety is always an important topic because deaths in water are so high, to state the obvious.

Compare the attitude of Canadian SAR personnel to attitudes of Churchill, Garapick, and the others in the CCG Office of Boating Safety, at meetings in luxury hotels to make canoes and kayaks as deadly as possible for the instructors lobby group and their own interests as well. (I have details on that, regarding false budget savings!)

Do you think that you will lose votes if you make canoes and kayaks safer with $25 CO2 sponsons, so that they become far superior to the rescue paddleboards used by Australian lifeguards. Of course not. The mother of a dead Girl Guide in terrible grief has already posted on the internet what she wants the Canadian government to do. The deadly canoe and kayak lobby group certainly does not want this publicity.

And we are certain that the RCMP does not want to appear as condoning the murders of more Girl Guides or any more Canadian children. Compare over 1000 Canadian canoe and kayak deaths (including 200 Canadian children) in 20 years, to MP Plimsoll's 11,000 deaths over 20 years in the Largest maritime fleet in the world at that time. Canada's canoes and kayks have a much higher death rate in exposure hours!

The Canadian public ask why the murder (what else is it?) of innocent citizens and their kids is tolerated at all. While obviously the death of 1 Canadian submariner is covered appropriately.

Please don't allow the RCMP and the Canadian Parliament to encourage more murders of these innocent Canadians and their children, in canoes ad kayaks.

The instructors lobby group is a "house of cards", that has been afraid to see me in court or any public forum for many years. Why would the RCMP or the House of Commons try to protect these murderers?

I didn't think so. Please get moving fast.

Dear Mr. Devillers MP, Simcoe North:

RCMP and the Canadian Coast Guard Canoe and Kayak Murder Scandal

I am giving this FAX to your local office, only a few minutes from my home. Your office will likely fax this information to Ottawa where you are in Parliament today. A week ago the local OPP office gathered more information regarding this scandal involving about 500 dead Canadians since Jon Churchill and the Office of Boating Safety decided to leave Canadians to die in the water. The local OPP office is very helpful and quite sensitive toward the suffering of dead Canadians and their families.
This terrible scandal must be addressed immediately since deaths are a weekly occurrence when canoes and kayaks are paddled in Canada. The 4 warmest months are extremely deadly. Fortunately ice prevents paddling some of the year and cold weather also dissuades participants. My duty as a citizen is to ensure that this scandal comes out immediately and I shall not give up. My last emails to PM Chretien stopped a month before the Canadian Girl Guides were killed. (I have no accent egule on this keyboard.)

This information is commonsense to you and the RCMP. We know that victims die in the water in PFDs when they are prevented from getting out. The 12 dead boys in Lake Temiskaming had years of training in canoe rescues that most people know don't work. They wasted precious time trying these rescues and died of hypothermia. (In Water the rate of body heat loss is 25 times the rate in air.) Only the boys who swam to shore immediately survived.

Of course the Canadian Coast Guard has all of this information since the Level Flotation Standard for all small boats became law in Canada, about the time of the 12 dead boys. The Level Flotation Standard creates a rescue platform to get victims out of the water. Otherwise they die in PFDs of hypothermia, like the Girl Guides and hundreds of others. Life Rafts were provided to all combatants on all sides in both World Wars. Otherwise people die fairly quickly in water, even in the warm waters of Florida. It just takes a little longer.

But Jon Churchill of the CCG and others insist on leaving victims to die in the water. If the Canadian Coast Guard wanted to save lives they would insist on the Level Flotation Standard for canoes and kayaks, $25 CO2 sponsons concealed in the beam ends like airbags in cars. Pretty simple. Give victims a means to rescue themselves. Don't murder them by insisting that all they need is to wear a PFD, and lure them into water that they cannot escape.

This scandal has killed more Canadians than the Air India bombing. MP Samuel Plimsoll confronted a similar scandal in 1870 when he created a publication called "Our Seamen". Between 1879 and 1899, 11,000 lives were lost in overloaded but heavily insured British ships. It took a long time before the Plimsoll mark became law. Ship owners were a powerful lobby group in Parliament. (Hanson, "The Custom of the Sea", 1999, pp. 54-69) All Canadian Coast Guard ships have the obvious Plimsoll mark today. See for yourself. The Canadian Coast Guard has overseen over 1000 canoe and kayak deaths since Temiskaming, including about 200 Canadian children. Of course Canadian canoes and kayaks are not used as often as ships in the days of the British Empire. Nor does an MP such as Samuel Plimsoll exist today, in times of airbags in cars.

Let's ensure that the RCMP and Canadian Parliament stop these murders now.

...RCMP Fax Follow-up Oct.5, 2004

Dear RCMP:

Coast Guard Canoe and Kayak Murder Investigation

As I told you on the phone today, the RCMP must investigate this immediately. Canoe and kayak deaths occur weekly this time of year. The below clearly outlines the deliberate planning to leave as many dead from canoes and kayaks as possible, denying them the Level Flotation Law that applies to all other small boats, to provide a rescue platform to get victims out of the water.

The murderers know that victims die if they cannot get out of the water, and they have known for years that $25 CO2 sponsons concealed at beam ends, like airbags in cars, provide a rescue platform to save these lives.

Instead these murderers require all canoes and kayaks to have a pump, bailer, rope etc. to trick these dead Canadians into thinking that they can save themselves. Of course this is impossible without an emergency rescue platform. The dead die in the water, many wearing a PFD that these murderers advertise is all they need to live.

The RCMP must dutifully act now, as Canadian Search and Rescue Officers have recommended below. Anyone with commonsense, any judge and jury can see this. Lay charges immediately RCMP. This is the only way to stop these calculated murders, by the Canadian Coast Guard below.

Urgent: Immediate Attention RCMP, Please, Oct. 4, 2004

Dear RCMP:

Re: RCMP Investigation Canadian Coast Guard Canoe and Kayak Murders

Please investigate these 500 murders by the Office of Boating Safety, CCG, and lay charges immediately. About 500 Canadians have been left to die in the water since Jon Churchill, Superintendent of Boating Safety, covered-up the Sponson Study by the dutiful Search and Rescue Patrol Officer from CCG Headquarters, Victoria, B.C., August 1994. SAR Colin ___ was sent away, and the Sponsons were denied to 500 dead Canadians, to enrich canoe and kayak instructors, selling expensive and fraudulent instruction that cannot get victims out of the water, where they die.

The motive is obvious. Instructors want to sell expensive and time-consuming instruction that has killed 200 Canadian children since the Temiskaming tragedy. Churchill and others want to enrich their friends.

The Canadian Coast Guard has no database of their own, accounting for much confusion and manipulation of Canadian death statistics. However, the Canadian death rate is over 2 and a half times the US death rate, no matter how the figures are compared. Canada has colder water than Florida, and many canoe and kayak deaths occur in Florida water while wearing a PFD. Victims must get out of the water to live. If you look at the bailer, rope, etc., Coast Guard-required safety equipment for canoes and kayaks in Canada, you will see that this only increases the likelihood of deaths, since victims are not warned that they will die if they don't get out of the water.

The Coast Guard does not warn that they will die if they do not get out of the water! On CBC radio, July 2002, Superintendent Garapick following Churchill's lead, stated these deaths could be elimininated by simply wearing a PFD! An outright lie. Over one third of the dead victims are already wearing a PFD. In the US over 35% are dead wearing a PFD (USCG BARD 2002.) Victims try to bail canoes, before giving up and realizing that they must swim to shore. There are many close calls and deaths because time has been wasted trying to bail out the canoe or kayak, before realizing that this is futile.

The 5 second CO2 sponsons, to get victims out of the water immediately, have been obvious to save lives for over 4 years in Canada. The Canadian Coast Guard has been informed for 4 years! Now it is approximately 100-160 deaths later, depending on the database quoted. I have the email replies from them 4 years ago. I just want to add these facts because you need to know that the Canadian Coast Guard will deny everything until they are brought to justice. They will attempt to mislead the investigators, using all kinds of specious reasoning. I just want you to know that I have thousands of pages of documentation regarding the Coast Guard crimes. I am extremely well prepared now, having heard all of their specious arguments against sponsons, to leave canoe and kayak victims in the water.

For example, I told Mr. Churchill about CO2 sponsons personally, on the phone and in emails over 2 years ago. (The most conservative number of Canadian canoe and kayak deaths since then, according to the Canadian Red Cross, is over 75 dead.) Churchill was extremely evasive and finally Mr. Cote (I have no accent egule etc.on this keyboard), senior general counsel of DFO, told me that I was "frivolous and vexacious" in a letter to me over 2 years ago. Cote said the USCG had no plans to have CO2 sponsons on canoes and kayaks, so the Canadian Coast Guard felt no need to amend their program! (Nor is Canada in Iraq.)

I have all of the emails. Mr. Churchill took medical leave a few months later, and then retired. His deadly work goes on. I mention these facts because these are the tactics of the Coast Guard's Office of Boating Safety. This Canadian scandal is large, with extensive planning to cover-up these deaths It is terrible to see the pain of these families, especially after the 2 Canadian Girl Guides died. The coroner's inquest did not address CO2 canoe sponsons, although very well informed, because the coroner could find no Coast Guard sponson studies. (In fact the Canadian Coast Guard SAR sponson study in August 1994 resulted in Mr. Churchill punishing the SAR officer by literally "shipping him out".)

I have these details, that should be easy for investigators to verify. I just want to emphasize again that this cover-up is relatively effective. This is why cover-ups are so damaging to a democracy. Investigators need to know that they will be tricked repeatedly. I can now, at every turn, give them specific information to sink the Coast Guard cover-up. Eventually criminals do get caught. Especially in government where there is a web of documentation in existence, regarding the truth, if one has the energy and integrity to pursue it.

On the face of this scandal I don't blame some police officers' disbelief that so many easily preventable deaths would be caused by the Coast Guard. It is hard to believe now, when airbags in cars are commonplace, unless you see it yourself. All that is needed is motive: Much more money is made from canoe and kayak instruction, than the profit from sales of these cheap and simple watercraft. And Churchill wanted to help his friends in the Canadian canoe and kayak world.

I have very specific details here, as elsewhere. The Canadian SAR officer just walked down the street from Coast Guard headquarters, Victoria, B.C., in August 1994, to interview the instructors at Ocean River Sports/Current Designs. The instructors told Colin ___ , the Canadian Coast Guard Search and Rescue Patrol Officer that sponsons were a much better safety device than anything else, since the craft is much more stable, even full of water, than before capsize. The canoe or kayak in fact is transformed into a Life Raft that can be paddled to pick up other victims dyng in the water and paddle them to shore. These were just the first generation 1987 sponsons! The CO2 sponsons inflate in 5 seconds, to provide much more stability with no instruction or practice necessary; any more than how to wear a PFD.

This is all so obvious: 350 dead Canadians according to the Red Cross, or 500 dead Canadians (according to an editorial in Kanawa magazine, Winter 2003, from the head of the Canadian Recreational Canoeing Association); since August 1994, when the Canadian Coast Guard SAR study was covered-up to make money for the instructors' lobby groups. The instructors want to make money. They don't want CO2 sponsons that permit Canadian citizens to rescue themselves without expensive, time-consuming, deadly instruction, that requires "practice, practice, practice", as advertised in the Coast Guard funded sea kayaking booklets, included in every issue of Kanawa magazine! If you have any questions about my credibility, I can refer you to many pieces of information contained in government documents in Canada or on the internet. I have an eleven year old daughter, the same age as the Girl Guides who died.

Just think about 500 Canadian families who have been ripped apart by these needless deaths. Charge them with negligence if nothing else. But stop these deaths! It is quite clear that Churchill and Garapick know that refusing to let victims get out of the water will murder them or their kids.

If the RCMP does not act immediately these deaths will continue. Canadian citizens have no chance against the criminal actions of a large goverment organization that lures them into water with no means to escape. Pretty obvious isn't it

No word yet from you. We have planned and deliberate action by Mr Churchill and others at the Canadian Coast Guard to deny citizens any way to get out of the water. And a very large number have died in the water wearing PFDs, particularly children, who have a higher rate of PFD use.

The easiest key to understanding the history of this action is the Level Flotation Standard, the law for small boats under 20 feet, to have foam under the seats etc. so they float like a life raft or rescue platform. Canada, Australia, and most other progressive countries have this law. For example, the USCG Level Flotation Standard 33 CFR 183. Issued April 18, 1977; Effective August 1, 1978 "Establishes level flotation standards on rowboats and outboard boats less than 20 feet in length, the boats most often involved in swamping and capsizing accidents, so that the boat will float level when swamped and provide a safe platform until rescue."

Now, at that time they could not figure out how to make canoes and kayaks comply because foam under the seats would not work (these craft are too narrow.) So all Coast Guards have granted "safety exemptions" to canoes and kayaks, endorsing instruction that does not work, no matter how intensive the training, and high physical fitness of the paddlers. (The 12 dead students wearing PFDs in Lake Temiskaming tried to get back into the canoes by trying to empty them over uncapsized canoes alongside. This succeeded only in capsizing more canoes. Only the boys who swam to shore immediately survived. They had years of experience and training. Authors like famous canoeing Canadian Bill Mason, then living near Meech Lake, nearby Ottawa, addressed this tragedy by recommending flotation to stabilize canoes. Unfortunately he had no sponsons concept to provide maximum stability with lightweight (1 lb.), easily concealed and inexpensive, inflatable CO2 sponsons.)

I invented the first generation of inflatable canoe and kayak sponsons in 1987. (See the US and Canadian patent offices.) As as former Scoutmaster, and YMCA canoe instructor 40 years ago, I saw an obvious necessity to increase safety for these vulnerable craft. I had no idea at that time that anyone would be against this!

And I certainly did not expect that Mr. Chretien and his cabinet would end up leaving 2 little Canadian Girl Guides in PFDs to die in the water, only one month after my last plea to them and the Canadian Coast Guard! See these emails! I gave up on Canada stopping these deaths until recently. (I expect our minority government will be much more careful.)

So do you think I am "too hard" on the Coast Guard? (I think the Canadian SAR people are genuine lifesavers and They have never been against any kind of canoe and kayak sponsons. Just the opposite. I keep them "confidential" since Mr. Churchill sent one SAR officer recommending sponsons away, in August 1994, Victoria, B.C.) Do you think I am justified, after 10 years of fighting the deliberate actions of the Canadian Coast Guard to enrich their "friends" at the expense of dead Canadians and their little kids?

I think that you can see now that this is the largest death rate scandal in Canadian history. Eventually this will become a huge class action lawsuit against all of the killing Canadians. Most citizens don't know that approximately 500 Canadians died in this scandal, due to CCG Churchill and all parties since. The statistics are very poor here, varying between 350 and 500. But it is easy for a law firm to find the next of kin to at least 300 dead.

I think that I am justified in labelling certain parties below as "murderers". I just wish I had done this sooner, in an attempt to ensure that the Government of Canada stops this scandal as soon as possible. It looks like the "murderers" for many years have been afraid to try to "shut me up" in court. They don't even peep about "libel". We must get this into court as soon as possible, unless you want more dead Canadians at an annual death rate ranging from 25-40 a year.

Meanwhile I shall make certain that the "murderers" are warned frequently about the inevitable consequences of cooly and deliberately murdering Canadians and their children. Please remove the Level Flotation Standard exemptions for canoes and kayaks now, to permit CO2 sponsons, in memory of Megan Mitchell and Erica Auclair, two precious Girl Guides who were left to die by the CCG and the Chretien government. Let's fix this scandal fast! Thank you in advance,

(P.S. If you think that I am saving these lives because I have a huge ego and a lust for money, ask Revenue Canada what I make and consider that I have arrived at this point since 1987. I have as much lust for money as your average police officer, paramedic or heart surgeon who all are interested primarily in saving lives. I believe in saving innocent lives. That is the best feeling possible. Money does not remotely compare to saving lives.

The murderers at the Coast Guard and Canadian Safe Boating Council are much worse than fraud artists, posing as "safety" oriented. Let's get them before a Canadian jury now. Just a little charge of "mischief" or "negligence" from the RCMP will get them into court, to begin. Other charges will soon come to mind. And the class action lawsuits.

Many years ago I thought diplomacy and polite commonsense was enough. It is not. What do you think is justified to make these killings stop instead? I am counting on the RCMP and the Government of Canada now, in the short term. Class action lawsuits against the CCG, CSBC members and others making canoes and kayaks as deadly as possible, will seal the fate of these murderers in the long term. They now have their place in history, and the journals of criminology. I shall see to that.)

Re: RCMP Investigation of Canadian Coast Guard Canoe and Kayak Murders

The RCMP has apparently begun some kind of investigation into this scandal, finally, after years of tortured Canadian deaths. In case you are unaware, canoes and kayaks have the highest fatality rate of any boat, in both the US and Canada, with over 35% of the dead now wearing PFDs.

In both World Wars all combatants were provided life rafts as well as lifejackets since human life is not sustained in water for long. Against this knowledge the Canadian Coast Guard has continued the pattern of denying canoe and kayak victims a means to get out of the water for about 500 deaths, since the cover-up of their own SAR study in 1994.

Mr. Clark MP and Mr. Moore (replying for Mr. Reynolds MP) responded to this scandal over 2 years ago, but it went nowhere. As you can see below, even Girl Guides have paid the ultimate price.

I ask all of you to Please ensure that the RCMP pursues this scandal immediately. Without your input, these easily preventable deaths will continue. These are planned murders, since leaving the victims in the water without a simple means to escape is obviously a planned pattern, without remorse, year after year.

I am well prepared for court with thousands of pages of airtight documentation of this highest death rate scandal in Canadian history. It is all amazingly obvious to any citizen with a taste for justice and the value of human life. It is almost unbelievable that PM Chretien and his cabinet repeatedly ignored my emails regarding this scandal that has claimed many Canadian children, for years.

Thank you. (You will see in the below that the 2 OPP officers sent to my home by the RCMP to "find out more about concerns in an email" at 2:30 pm, Tuesday, September 28, indicated some kind of RCMP investigation.)...

Sept.29, 2004

RCMP Investigation of CCG, OBS, CSBC Canoe and Kayak Murder Program

Yesterday afternoon the RCMP asked the OPP to ask me more about these terrible murders, resulting in approximately 500 canoe and kayak deaths in Canada since Jon Churchill deliberately covered-up the CCG Sponson Study by the Canadian Coast Guard SAR officer, August 1994...SNIP...
...P. Garapick and J. Churchill covered up the Canadian Coast Guard Sponson Study by a dutiful Search and Rescue Officer, August 1994. The Transportation Safety Board of Canada Report Number M93W0008 still exists:
"2.8 Emergency and Safety Equipment: The side sponsons and/or paddle floats were not inflated and installed ahead of time to assist the kayaker to reboard after a possible capsizing or to increase the stability of the kayaks. Consequently, when the kayakers entered an area of rough seas, they had to keep paddling to keep their kayaks upright. Each kayak was equipped with these floats. The secondary use of the sponsons, i.e. to increase the stability of the kayaks, was not foreseen before the kayaks encountered severe weather."

The Canadian Coast Guard Sponson Study is about the same as the US Military Sponson Study a few months earlier:
"basic, no nonsense...dramatically increase...safety and...capabilities... It should be noted that within the North American civilian sea kayak industry there is some controversy...Sea Wings' direct competition with...the paddle float...the merits of Sea Wings...far outweigh those of the paddlefloat...During the IMKP 1994 we used Sea Wings with all our rescue boats as back-up flotation/stability for awashed kayaks needing assistance pumping out in heavy seas. In addition, IMKP's rescue kayak was fitted with Sea Wings on a permanent basis which allowed us to be far more stable in possible rescue operations...Sea Wings dramatically increase re-entry operations with capsized boats. Indeed, even with heavily loaded boats (those approaching 1000 lbs.) most paddlers can easily re-enter the kayak. However the most notable advantage of Sea Wings is with lightly loaded boats; ie, those kayaks which are far less stable (more tippy) than fully loaded boats. Recovery operations are far more difficult in these boats and most students have extreme difficulty in mastering the necessary techniques. This is compounded in heavy seas. Sea Wings offers an almost guaranteed method of re-entering a lightly loaded kayak even in heavy seas. Stability increase in heavy seas. Paddling in extremely heavy seas is difficult. Sea Wings offer the crews an additional method of dealing with such sea states. One of the most dangerous situations a detachment can find itself in is that of towing a disabled crew with full operational loads in heavy seas at night. The employment of Sea Wings dramatically increases the safety margin. In my opinion, this is one of the sponsons' most important contributions to MAROPS. " Invitational Military Kayak Paddle 1994 Evaluation" ...SNIP...

Air bags in cars, life rafts, rescue platforms, and CO2 inflatable PFDs are commonplace in modern society.

Get these despicable killers into court and tried before a Canadian jury immediately! This matter was addressed by F. Cote, senior legal counsel, DFO, in 2002 by saying that it was OK for Churchill (who also cut the Rescue Diver program, resulting in the deaths last year of children and adults in an overturned fishing boat near Vancouver), to murder more Canadians in canoes and kayaks.

Just get these horrible killers before a Canadian Jury immediately. Note the sponsorship funding to the canoe and kayak murder program in Quebec and Garapick also acting for CSBC Byers in Marketing/Membership, to murder as many as possible. Garapick lures Canadian corporate and taxpayer dollars to murder Canadians in return for advertising "boating safety".
Garapick, Byers and the murder clique meet in luxury hotels at taxpayer expense to deny $25 CO2 sponsons to eleven year old Girl Guides. This Canadian murder program uses Canadian tax dollars.

Think of the 11 year old Girl Guides dying in terror, fearing they would never see their family again. Think of the families denied the means to prevent such a tragedy from ever happening again. Forced to watch their Canadian Girl Guide deaths be wasted, instead of ensuring no more Canadian children are ever murdered in a canoe or kayak again.

Just get these murderers to justice before a Canadian jury immediately. I have thousands of pages documenting the despicable actions of these horrible murderers. This story will eventually come out because it is impossible to stop. Who wants to stop canoe and kayak safety?

... The OPP were blamed for not rescuing the Girl Guides in time, although they were denied the CO2 sponsons rescue platform to get out of the water immediately, long before the most rapid emergency force in the world could ever reach them. Most Canadian police officers and the OPP want CO2 canoe and kayak sponsons immediately, for obvious reasons. (The late Bill Mason stated there was no means to prevent canoe and kayak deaths except strategic canoe flotation, "Song of the Paddle", p.126, after the 12 children died on Lake Temiskaming.) Millions of Canadians on a Jury want $25 CO2 sponsons too.

This matter will not go away. These deaths per exposure hours are a hundred times greater than deaths in cars. This death rate is the highest in the history of Canada. These despicable Canadian murderers will be eventually tried by jury. Already they have made history...SNIP...


Attention Minister of Public Safety, RCMP DUTY 613-990-9077

The RCMP must lay charges of negligence, manslaughter, etc. against criminals wthin the Office of Boating Safety, Canadian Coast Guard (now part of Transport Canada.)

Evidence below and 1000 other pages show that "air bags", like car air bags, the only means to get victims out of the water, to prevent canoe and kayak deaths, have been denied to Canadian citizens for many years. Instead the canoe and kayak lobby groups have been enriched at the expense of 350-500 Canadian lives since 1994. This corrupt and deadly criminal practice within the Office of Boating Safety is far more serious than the Air India bombing.

Failure of the RCMP to lay charges in the past several weeks has left several more dead. The RCMP must act quickly without cowardice, evasion of duty or dereliction of duty, as required by the law of Canada.

Dear Lorraine:
Please confirm that the RCMP will lay charges regarding the Canadian Coast Guard's huge criminal transgressions against human lifesaving, causing the highest death rate in Canadian history. The RCMP must protect Canadian citizens, as the RCMP is entrusted and required to do, under Canadian law.

Thank you. I am sure that the RCMP can understand that Canadian citizens have been cheated of their basic civil rights to safe canoes and kayaks for 10 years, for simple greed. This has killed huge numbers, since they cannot die if they are able to get out of the water. Automatic inflating CO2 sponsons, like air bags in cars, Coast Guard approved CO2 powered PFDs, and CO2 life rafts are plain and obvious in any court.

The evidence against Churchill and Garapick in the Office of Boating Safety is overwhelming. They deliberately have ensured that canoes and kayaks, the most vulnerable type of watercraft, are as deadly as possible. Any jury in Canada will convict on these criminal charges when they discover that victims cannot rescue themselves in a swimming pool without these simple $25 floats, like air bags in cars. The 12 boys who died in Lake Temiskaming could not rescue themselves despite wearing PFDs, despite years of training. Only the boys who swam to shore immediately were able to escape death by hypothermia effects. (Body heat loss in water is 25 times the heat loss in air.)

There are thousands of pages of documentation. The Canadian Coast Guard has been very effective in covering up this simple and inexpensive means to save lives. The grieving mother of one dead Girl Guide knows that it is impossible to rescue victims in any canoe, without CO2 flotation at the beam ends in emergencies. Most Canadians do not know this until a terrible tragedy makes this obvious. Canadians mistakenly assume that the Canadian Coast Guard tries to protect them with the safest canoes and kayaks possible.

These deaths, 350-500 over 10 years, depending on which database is used, comprise the largest lifesaving scandal in history. Centuries of lifesaving principles focus on one point: Get the victims out of the water or they will certainly die. ...SNIP.. of original 20 pages.



 

November 5, 2004                         FAX RCMP CRIMINAL BRANCH 613-998-2906
(Alert RCMP Terror Line 1-800-420-5805)

1. RCMP Criminal Branch Girard below, and his associates apparently enjoy the murder of Canadian Girl Guides, other children, and 25-40 Canadians annually, using the infamous Nazi cold water experiments. The RCMP terror line eventually will respond to child murderers within the RCMP and the Office of Boating Safety. The RCMP sometimes takes weeks to respond to terror alerts, even responding to the terror of Canadian children dying in the water like the Canadian Girl Guides.

2. Daniel Hache, hacheda@dfo-mpc.gc.ca <mailto:hacheda@dfo-mpc.gc.ca>, Office of Boating Safety, joins Garapick and Churchill on the list below. Hache is a criminal psychopath who also copies the Nazi experiments for the Luftwaffe in WW2, that tested how long human beings can survive in cold water before dying.

The behavior of Hache against civilized society is chilling. There is no evidence at this time that he specifially targets children for death, in canoes and kayaks without $25 airbags. But he supports every canoe and kayak law at the Office of Boating Safety that maximizes the time spent in the water, for maximum deaths, like Garapick and Churchill. This did kill two Canadian Girl Guides recently.

3. These murderers can no longer hide. They are terrorists and mass murderers like Charles Manson or the Air India criminals. But Hache et al. are much more deadly. RCMP Girard below apparently tries to protect these vicious killers. Let's see how long the RCMP takes to protect Canadian citizens and their kids, against these horrible killers.

No terrorist group has matched this cruel and deliberate murder of citizens.

Charges of Criminal Negligence Against RCMP Federal Enforcement/Marine Patrol Girard, Office of Boating Safety Superintendents Garapick and Churchill

These ringleaders have killed between 25-40 Canadian citizens in canoes and kayaks annually, since 1994. Despite the obvious fact that no RCMP officers nor any other Canadians are able to rescue themselves, victims have been denied $25 Air Bags, inflating instantly to enable victims to get out of the water alive.

RCMP Girard, Garapick and Churchill kill these victims without remorse, including 2 Canadian Girl Guides, only eleven years old. Further information and pictures relating to the dead Girl Guides are available at:
<http://www.bconnex.net/~timkayak/danger.html>

Churchill covered-up a Canadian Coast Guard Search and Rescue Officer's Study of air bags or "sponsons" in August 1994. The dutiful officer was literally "shipped out" for protesting about the deadly cover-up, now responsible for 350-500 Canadian canoe and kayak deaths, depending on the database used. Churchill decided to prevent the availability of Air Bags or sponsons in favour of canoe and kayak industry instructors, who make much more money from instruction than sales of these small craft....SNIP from original RCMP Criminal Branch FAXES...The twelve dead boys in Lake Temiskaming tried canoe "rescues" that they had practised for years, but only those who swam to shore immediately survived. All wore PFDs, just like the Girl Guides. They had no simple means to get out of the water.

Over 1000 Canadians have died in terror in canoes and kayaks since then, including about 200 Canadian Children. The deliberate Negligence of these criminals and their associates has resulted in the largest death rate scandal in Canadian history. Put these cruel killers before a judge and jury in Canada immediately. No Canadian terrorists have matched this horror.

These are only a few of the RCMP Faxes. I met with Inspector Christian Tardiff, RCMP Headquarters, Newmarket, Ontario, November 10, 2004  regarding these charges. Nothing happened and 3 boys died in pain and terror May 20, 2005, along with about 25 other Canadians, and about 90 Americans, including over a dozen American children, using statistical predictions from USCG BARD. An RCMP officer died following the current Transport Canada instructions to put a PFD on in the water, June 3, 2005, Lake Okanagan, B.C.

Transport Canada, not the Canadian Coast Guard, has handled responsibility for these deaths since 1993, except for one year, several years ago, when the Office of Boating Safety was transferred out of Transport Canada, then transferred back.
