Stephen Harper and his Northern Foundation Past
Mr. Harrison documents in the book entitled Of Passionate Intensity, that Prime Minister Stephen Harper was a member of the ultra-right wing Northern Foundation in 1989. Mr. Harrison documents that this Foundation was comprised of Neo-Nazi social Darwinist intellectuals. It is apparent that the Prime Minister is pursuing an ideological and public policy agenda to re-define the Canadian identity into the prism of the Northern Foundation.
Harper’s removing a popular black Canadian Governor General, was an apparent of this agenda. The Northern Foundation is not exactly committed to women’s rights or racial equality, based upon Mr. Harrison’s research.
Stephen Harper was Reform Party Policy chief, at a time when it had numerous members of the white supremacist group Heritage Front as members. Trevor Harrison, further documents that Mr. Harper even had Heritage Front members doing security for Preston Manning at Reform Party events in Ontario.
The Reform Party would evolve into the Alliance Party of Canada, which sought to take over the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada (PC Party) toward the formation of the "Conservative Party of Canada". The taking over of the PC Party was sought to provide legitimacy to a movement that was largely continued to be perceived a fringe group from Alberta. However, the current Conservative Party is still apparently governed by the same fringe Reform Party mentality, which in turn is linked with the architects of the far right Northern Foundation.
When Stephen Harper was a member of the ultra-right-wing Northern Foundation in 1989, Mr. Harrison documents that this was a group that had numerous Neo-Nazi skinheads as organizers, as well as a leadership that included a well-known white supremacist and anti-feminist crusader as a prominent leader that sought to take over the mass-media to enable the fulfillment of a right wing agenda.
The Northern Foundation, with the support of corporate allies was able to get Mr. Harper elected in the first place by indeed, taking over the mass-media in Canada. This was done to shelter Mr. Harper from the kinds of critical journalism which had kept him out of power, in the first place. Corporate mass-media owners would seek to remake Mr. Harper and the Conservative Party from being ultra right, into a fabricated image of a non-threatening "moderately conservative" party.
Trevor Harrison also documents that “He [Mr. Harper] had little trouble doing so, as the media had been largely muffled by one fact: press baron Conrad Black, then reaching the height of his powers was also a member of the Northern Foundation and equally shy about having it publicly known." Mr. Harrison elaborates that, "Journalists feared incurring his wrath as he employed many of them at the time, and was a potential employer for those whom he didn’t employ. Had they made the membership list public, Mr. Black would have been exposed."
Now that Mr. Harper has been able to seize power by taking over the PC Party (through a breach of contract law), and with the help of, for example, media owners of CanWest Global (that form example, controls many Canadian newspapers including the National Post, and the Ottawa Citizen) who donated money to his political campaigns, the Conservative Party in association with the Northern Foundation now seeks to focus on the fulfillment of an crypto-authoritarian agenda.
Herein’s Mr. Harper’s agenda as an alumnus of the Northern Foundation to re-define “Canadianism”:
-- Critics say Harper's government is slowly chipping away at what people abroad used to appreciate about Canada (healthcare, progressive policies, environmental leadership);
-- The change is evident in things like the immigration handbook, given to new immigrants to familiarize them with Canadian custom;
-- Former handbook emphasized social programs like healthcare and education as well as Canadian values, multiculturalism, etc. (created by former Liberal governments);
-- The new version of the book, created by the Conservatives, emphasizes monarchy, military;
-- The Prime Minister’s Office has also been “re-branding” the Canadian government as the “Harper Government” in federal documents and communications;
-- Reports revealed a directive from the PMO to replace “Government of Canada” with “Harper Government” on communications materials;
