The foreign invasion of Canada created by privatization.

Government of Canada property is routinely sold through Privy Council Orders-in-Council. The people of Canada are never consulted, when embassies, lighthouses, experimental farms, train stations, Olympic venues, Expo '67 pavilions, RCMP buildings, space observatories, baseball stadiums, bridges, military bases and post offices are privatized.

China, India and Saudi Arabia are buying huge tracts of land in countries such as New Zealand, to grow food and bio-fuel.

Several years ago, the Canadian government planned to sell nine GOC buildings, including the Harry Hays Building in Calgary, the Thomas D'Arcy McGee Building in Ottawa, Skyline Towers in Ottawa and the Sinclair Building in Vancouver, B.C.

 Samuel de Champlain built a fortress in Quebec City on high ground, to protect the city from foreign invaders. The Chateau Frontenac Hotel was build on the grounds of the fortress--- privatization led to the foreign invasion of the Chateau Frontenac.

The Canadian Pacific Railway was obligated to return the CPR hotels, train stations (Windsor Station in Montreal, Summerhill in Toronto..) and millions of acres of land, to the people of Canada. Instead of returning the reversionary properties, the railway decided to create a real estate company, Marathon Realty in 1963.

People fight for what they love---I love the songs "O Canada" and "The Maple Leaf Forever;" our Maple Leaf Flag and Coat of Arms;the National Parks; the Dominion Observatory and Experimental Farm in Ottawa; landmarks; heritage buildings, the Prairies and the Rockies; Atlantic Canada lighthouses, buildings and landscapes; museums (I visited the Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump and the Glenbow Museum in Alberta, and Sir John A. Macdonald's home in Kingston, Ontario) and National Historic Sites.
The British Embassy owns Sir John A. Macdonald's home in Ottawa.
Fairmont owns the CPR and CNR railway hotels.

Canada's Coat of Arms and Maple Leaf Flag are stripped from government buildings when they are privatized. During the Middle Ages, the Barbarians also stripped heraldic flags and Coats of Arms from buildings, when they invaded foreign countries.

Ten years ago Walt Disney Corporation and Viacom were interested in buying the CN Tower in Toronto.

La Ronde, the huge Expo '67 amusement park in Montreal, is now owned and operated by Six Flags, an American company. (My father was a professional photographer, I posted many Expo '67 pictures on my blog:
1.) "The federal government is closing the former American pavilion at Expo '67, because of budget cuts.
2.) "Family photographs taken at Expo '67".
3.) "Inside the United States Pavilion at Expo '67.")

Kingston Penitentiary will close on September 30, 2013.



The CN Tower is no longer owned by the People of Canada, the landmark is "non-federal owned". Several years ago there was an attempt to remove the words "Canada" and "Canadian" from the word mark "CN Tower", despite the fact that  taxpayers of this country paid for the construction of the tower, and the land was federally owned.
The Prison for Women in Kingston, Ontario was a Classified Heritage Building, the highest designation.
The Saint-Vincent-de-Paul Penitentiary in Laval, Quebec was also a National Historic Site of Canada.  Many Hollywood movies were filmed in the Saint-Vincent-de-Paul Pen, including the Universal movie "Death Race" and John Travolta's "Battlefield Earth":

"Death Race" was filmed in a federal prison in Laval, Quebec.
