Failure by Prime Minister Stephen Harper

An open letter has been submitted to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, noting his failure to address long-term systemic corruption at the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).

A copy of the letter is posted on

On my behalf, lawyer Paul Armarego first sent information about this case of corruption to Mr Harper during the 2006 federal election, while the Conservative Party of Canada was campaigning on a platform to clean up the government and ensure political accountability.

Mr Harper stated in Stand Up For Canada (Conservative Party of Canada Federal Election Platform 2006): "We need to replace a culture of entitlement and corruption with a culture of accountability. We need to replace benefits for a privileged few with government for all." Yet, he apparently turned a blind eye to the CRTC corruption.

As documented in the One Media Law research report, CRTC officials have abused the statutory authority of the federal regulatory agency over the years to redistribute wealth from millions of citizens to corporations, including the unjust enrichment of several corporations controlled by some of Canada's wealthiest businessmen.

A public inquiry into the highly unorthodox wealth redistribution scheme is warranted and long overdue.
