It’s Time to Open Up the Archives- PM Trudeau invites Hunka to Soiree

Headline from print version ( link to digital version)

The Commission of Inquiry on War Criminals, headed by Justice Jules Deschênes, completed an important report into its investigation on Holocaust war criminals living in Canada in 1986. It was accompanied by an assessment by scholar Alti Rodal, a document that Justice Deschênes said deserved “wide distribution.”

But it’s been 38 years, and we’re still waiting to read Ms. Rodal’s report as well as the full version of the Deschênes report itself.

Most governments became aware of the hundreds, if not thousands, of potential war criminals living in their societies in the late 1970s and 80s, and Canada was no different. In response, Canada decided to conduct the Deschênes Commission, an internal two-year investigation tasked with finding out if and how Nazis found refuge in Canada. The final report, which was released publicly with extensive deletions, marked the premature end of investigations into hundreds of war criminals and called for the federal Justice and Immigration departments to take the lead on future prosecution.

Pretty sure everyone who reads here is aware of Operation Paperclip. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that alongside the British and American allies, Canada brought in some nefarious people.

The article above precedes today’s news.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invited Yaroslav Hunka, the Ukrainian Waffen-SS veteran who received two ovations in the House of Commons during a visit by Volodymyr Zelensky, to a reception he hosted in the Ukrainian President’s honour the same day.

“It is clear that failures in due diligence were not limited to the Office of the Speaker and extended to the Office of Prime Minister Trudeau,” he said. “It is unfortunate that the vetting process was either insufficient or perhaps even non-existent.”

The invitation from the Prime Minister to “a special event” at Fort York Armoury in Toronto on the evening after Mr. Zelensky’s appearance in Parliament on Sept. 22 was sent to Mr. Hunka on Sept. 19 by the Office of Protocol of Canada.

It’s strange that Canadians believe this nation to be squeaky clean? Or that this is a Trudeau government problem? Canada is not squeaky clean and the problem of war criminals being in Canada has been long known. It seems to me that Canada, in order to continue on the war against the former Soviet Union, now Russia, would have welcomed these persons as partners in this fight. It just makes sense when thinking in terms of maintaining the power of empire. The 5 eyes empire.

Maybe have a look at this older report from nearly 2 yrs ago?
