Mountie trades badge for pulpit (10:05 a.m.)
‘It was God who inflamed my passion to stand up against injustice’

This is a good news story and there is more in the Edmonton Journal, Mar. 17, 2007.

Stenhouse learned about International Justice Mission (IJM) Canada from an article in The Journal by Canwest reporter Norma Greenaway.

IJM Canada uses retired or serving police officers and lawyers who go underground in countries like Cambodia, with its notorious child-sex trade industry.

There, as in other countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America, the investigators help local authorities rescue victims of sexual exploitation, forced labour and violence, and also prosecute the perpetrators.

The organization is purposely vague about its investigative methods, but makes no secret about its goal of trying to put an end to human trafficking for the purposes of feeding the sex or forced-labour trade.




A call to do justice -- As an undercover Mountie, Bob Stenhouse dealt with the darkest of the dark -- cases involving murder, outlaw biker gangs and sex crimes against children. New role as evangelical pastor a good fit for former RCMP officer, one of the RCMP whistleblowers , Don Retson, The Edmonton Journal, March 17, 2007

CBC: The Fifth Estate - After the Cameras Went Away -- Listen to a Clip

www.cbc.ca/fifth/media/mountie.ram

In an earlier operation, IJM [International Justice Mission] was able to rescue 37 girls who'd been forced to work in brothels, also in Cambodia. One of the girls was only five years old while nine of the girls were between five and 10. That operation led to 13 prosecutions, resulting in six convictions, ranging from five- to 20-year prison sentences.

Sadly, McIntosh said Canadian pedophiles are among those who exploit children overseas.

Crucial arctic map missing
Sovereignty issue: Can Canada prove it paid Norwegian for his discovery?
, Nathan Vanderklippe, National Post, March 17, 2007

VANCOUVER - The country's record-keepers can't find a Scandinavian explorer's map that Parliament bought so it could plant the Maple Leaf on a trio of petroleum-rich Arctic islands, potentially opening a door for Norway to grab them back.

[....] The islands in question are Axel Heiberg, Ellef Ringnes and Amund Ringnes. Together, they make up the northwestern edge of the Canadian Arctic archipelago, a place where the winter sun disappears for months at a time and windchills regularly approach -100C. Named after Norwegian beermakers, they are uninhabited and desolate, home only to muskoxen, caribou and the occasional polar bear. [....]


Thin Ice-Saattuq, Mar. 17, 2007 on Global TV at 7 p.m. -- It was just about what you would expect from CBC. It featured the usual people: David Suzuki, Sheila Watt-Cloutier and others, with Tom Jackson narrating. There was no attempt at showcasing competing scientific conclusions about global warming, that is, other perspectives from scientists who see what is happening as part of a normal long-term cycle. The program was intended to make us worry about global warming and the Inuit way of life in the North. I have a hard time with stories of how the Inuit pursue their traditional ways and hunt for food ... while using modern inventions such as snowmobiles, guns, etc. Just which aspects do they wish to preserve? Or is it more a call for more taxpayer investment and who would dispense it? No mention of transparency nor accountability. One aspect of note in the program is the attempt by other countries to claim the water passage as not necessarily belonging to Canada; there were wonderful scenes of the North and of an island which Denmark claims.
