I am restarting nbGazette. On this website I will be posting information and reports that other news medias refuse to print mainly because the media is controlled - in New Brunswick it is by the Irving family. There are a lot of things going on in New Brunswick and around the World that affect you and I but they are not being reported. There are things that are happening that are clearly a violation of the law and are not being reported. There are changes that have taken place that the vast majority of New Brunswickers and Canadians are not aware of and I will be posting everything as I come across them. You and I have the right to know about “everything” that is happening around us, as it affects us all. If our rights and liberties are being violated you have the right to know. If the government is spying on us you have the right to know. If our government has abused their authority you have a right to know. The government works for the people. No one has the right to be premier or prime minister. They are only in power so long as we allow them to be. They cannot be leaders without our majority vote. Even with a majority government the prime minister is bound by law and is accountable to the law. Anyone who works with a foreign state to undermine our sovereignty must be removed as their actions are treason. Anyone who works secretly and off-record cannot be trusted and must also be removed before irreversible damage can occur.
I am a New Brunswicker but I am also a proud Canadian and I will do whatever it takes to expose and bring to justice anyone who is a traitor to our great nation. When a foreign country like the United States is intercepting our emails and listening in on our conversations it is a gross breach of our sovereignty and a threat to our national security. I bring this up now because it is very important for every Canadian to know that a Canadian owned company is working with the US to facilitate the US spying on Canadians. I know for a fact that Rogers is diverting all our emails and Home Phone conversations to the US. Rogers has partnered with Yahoo (US owned) and all Rogers internet communications are being sent to Yahoo servers in California where this past summer the US Congress passed a law that allows the Department of Homeland Security and the NASA to read all foreign communications that passes through the US. The US has found a loophole in the law that would protect our privacy through reading of our emails and internet phone conversations by “diverting” all Rogers Canadian customers’ emails to the US. Before our email didn’t go to the US if the email recipient was another Canadian address. Before the emails went through Canadian network junctions to get to another Canadian destination. By having Rogers host their servers with Yahoo all emails are sent through the US and are stored on the US servers in California. According to US law those servers are subject to US law and as such they can be retrieved, opened and even deleted at the digression of the DHS and the NSA.
Every one subscribing to Rogers High Speed Internet and Home Phone are now subject to the FISA bill - Canadian emails can be read and conversations can be listened in on. Rogers High Speed Internet and Home Phone service that have servers in a foreign state – the US – undermines the safety and interest of Canada and Canadian. Having servers in the US allows for the US – a foreign state – uncontrolled access to Canadian Trade Secrets. This is a very serious threat to the safety, interest, prosperity and security of Canada because the US can now intercept, block, alter, steal or delete any and all Rogers email passing through the US via Rogers servers. That is everyone including lawyers, politicians, banks, police, military, newspapers, prime minister, premiers, CSIS and every Canadian citizen with Rogers Internet. The US Congress gave the Bush administration the authority to read Canadian emails and listen in on Home Phone conversations.

The actions of Rogers is illegal. What is our government doing about it? Nothing. I’ve sent emails to the prime minister, the governor general and to all the leaders of the Canadian political parties and have had no reply. Apparently they are not too concerned that the US could be reading government communications - a threat to national security.

Canadian communications being diverted to servers in the US where they can be manipulated and abused by the US government to gain unauthorized financial, political, military or technology information is a threat to Canada’s sovereignty, prosperity and national security. Rogers is financially capable of having their servers in Canada. Why would they need to have servers in a foreign country if they have the people, technology and facilities here in Canada? Why would a Canadian company compromise our privacy and security? Is Rogers Canadian owned in name only? If so then a major breach of national security has occurred and our government must act immediately to protect Canada and Canadians.
