Editor’s Note:

The following information on PM Stephen Harper’s involvement as a former CSIS operative was first published on this site back on January 18th of 2011. Then, following repeated backtracking and pressure from the author, including pleadings that he was in danger of losing his job because of the fact that the information was on the net, I consented to pulling the piece.

Now that a federal election is on I’ve decided that the information contained in Mr. Gareth Llewellyn’s story is of too vital a nature for the country to keep it from the electors and so I’m republishing it in the public interest.

The fact of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s direct connection and collusion with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service better known by its acronym “CSIS” has been kept well hidden by the Conservative party and the mainstream media but it’s the type of information that voters should be aware of before they make the mistake of voting for Harper again and putting the Conservatives in a position of power with a majority rule.

Originally, on January 17th, 2011, I received an email sent to RadicalPress.com and other news media outlets and Senators from Mr. Gareth Llewellyn, a former Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) Intelligence Analyst in the Intelligence directorate, wherein he shared his insights into “behind the scenes” political scenarios that the vast proportion of Canadian citizens are currently unaware of.

Along with the malicious and highly suspect machinations of Canada’s spy network came Llewellyn’s expose on Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s past associations with CSIS as well as Llewellyn’s  own personal connections and recollections of Harper and other key players in the current Conservative government now running for re-election.

The information contained in Gareth Llewellyn’s email should be a strong wake up call to each and every Canadian concerned about the direction that this nation is taking in terms of domestic and foreign policy. It should also be a warning to Canadians about the subversive and dangerous role being played by CSIS and the Prime Minister in terms our country’s global position and standing amongst other democratic countries.

I would urge each and every person reading the information contained in the post below to do their utmost to spread this material around the net to the fullest possible degree. The collusion here between our Prime Minister and our secretive“intelligence” agency is of crucial importance and needs to be exposed to as many Canadians as possible.

The article contains the first four proposed chapters of a book that Llewellyn told RadicalPress.com that he was in the process of publishing. It is therefore a long article. I am purposely sending it in full rather than providing a hyperlink to the complete piece which will be on this site. In this way readers will have the full information.

Dear Senator:

Would it affect your vote if you learned that the Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper was a CSIS operative in the late 1980s and early 1990s?

This interesting-but-not-scandalous information (as once described by Jeff Sallot, a noted journalist and now teaching media at Carleton University) has been deemed by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) as an item of “national security,” and I, in turn, was deemed as ‘prejudicial to the safety and interests of the [Canadian] state’ under the Security of Information Act (SOIA).”  My career was ruined as a result.

So, congratulations! you are now privy to a national-security secret.

If, after a moment of contemplation, you find something fishy about this “secret,” as if Canada’s security wouldn’t change one iota if it were broadcast around the world, you are privy to what this package is really about: the lack of judgment by CSIS, their dirty tricks, harassment and above all, their denial of basic justice to innocent Canadians.

The Liberal Party of Canada is aware of this information, but according to a letter from Michael Ignatieff’s office (copied to the Evidence directory), the Liberals are not interested in this issue. The reasons for the Liberal’s lack of interest may include the fact that CSIS may have also protected a Liberal Prime Minister from another “national security secret” i.e., a brief affair with a Peterborough woman in or around 2005, by harassing her to an extreme degree.  Read the article about her ordeal at the hands of CSIS in the Evidence directory (#23a and b).

This package is a book proposal seeking a publisher.  Four chapters and an introduction tentatively entitled Life Under CSIS Rule are included, as well as a book synopsis and letter to a prospective literary agent.  A series of magazine articles are also feasible, as is internet publication. The Gangstalker Directory contains “About Gangstalkers” to explain the role of “gangstalkers” simply, a network of louts recruited to harass a whistleblower including some photos of them in action.  The phenomenon of gangstalking has been developed very well at the website, www.gangstalkingworld.com, to which I refer the reader.  In my case, CSIS has rented apartments in my neighbourhood to house them, so I enclose some photos of those houses as well.

My resume and a photograph of my wife and I are included to identify us, as well as a Contact sheet to warn of the difficulties of communication when you are under CSIS investigation.  My proposed book isn’t as important as the country.  If you don’t want my experiences in Life Under CSIS Rule to be a regular occurrence in Canada, all under the excuse of “national security,” please pass my story along. Please accept my legal permission to do so.

Synopsis of Proposed Book

Working Title: “Life Under CSIS Rule”


In January 2007, I was “gang-stalked” by CSIS. According to the leaked diplomatic cables by Wikileaks, this activity was called “vigorous harassment” by the former Director of CSIS, Jim Judd, a process that involves dozens of people, vehicles and radios. At the time, I didn’t know why it was happening, and throughout 2007, despite my efforts with my superiors at the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and the fact I was an intelligence analyst cleared to Top Secret Special Access, one of the highest in government, I couldn’t get answers.It wasn’t until February 2008 that I learned that CSIS thought I was an American spy. I had done nothing to justify this. I complained to the Security Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC), and in so doing I revealed that the Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper, our Prime Minister, was used by CSIS as an operative against me previously in 1988, at a time when CSIS thought I was a neo-Nazi and a South African agent. After learning that I knew about Harper (it shouldn’t have been much of a surprise), CSIS deemed me a security risk ‘“prejudicial to the safety and interests of Canada” under the Security of Information Act (SOIA). My career was finished. CSIS mounted a campaign to force me out of my job and brand me as delusional in order to protect Harper. The SOIA has empowered CSIS to deprive the innocent of a solicitor-client privilege and patient-doctor relationship, as well as other mechanisms of justice.

This book is about errors of judgment by CSIS so massive that they involve two Prime Ministers and a former Leader of the Opposition. During the past 22 years, CSIS suspected me of being a neo-Nazi, a South Africa agent, an American spy and now a enemy of the state. They were wrong on all counts. When CSIS thought I was a neo-Nazi, they fomented an investigation into me by Internal Affairs in Revenue, from which I was cleared. CSIS thought I was funneling money from the South African embassy to Preston Manning’s campaign against Joe Clark. Here, Preston Manning was investigated. This story is told as a first/second-person narrative in chronological time with flashbacks recounting the back story.

The story doesn’t end there. Another victim is a Peterborough woman operating under the alias “Anne,” who had an alleged affair with a Prime Minister in 2005, probably the Rt. Hon. Paul Martin. Two newspaper articles have been written about her, but the mainline media hasn’t realized what has happened. CSIS abuses normal Canadians under a program entitled ‘“diffuse and disrupt” a program, in theory, that is meant to halt a terrorist attack against Canada, and formed, in the words of a former Deputy Director of Operations at CSIS, “because we had all this information and nothing to do with it.” In practice, CSIS doesn’t enjoy the competence to differentiate between the innocent and the guilty.

A brief introduction and proposed chapters 1- 4 are included. Substantial documentary evidence proving CSIS actions to some extent are provided. Photographs of gangstalkers, including the homes they use as a home base in my neighbourhood, are presented here as a stand-alone section for the middle of the book. All the names, dates and places are authentic. Some names may need to be changed for liability purposes, but not all. The central question in this proposed book is, how could a brief affair by one Prime Minister and the knowledge that another Prime Minister worked for CSIS many years ago become a “national security threat” requiring extreme extra-judicial remedies?

Chapters 1- 4

Provided (approx. 25,000 words). They present my early exposure to “gangstalking” and my work life under CSIS investigation between January 2007 and September 2008. Back story elements include my past relationship with Stephen Harper and the incidents that lead to the investigation of Preston Manning’s federal campaign in Yellowhead in 1988. Also included is their ‘“disrupt activities” against me as an alleged American spy. Illegal activities by my employer, CBSA, and CSIS are presented, and how my solicitor-client and patient-doctor relationship were abrogated.  It includes how CSIS tried to brand me as “delusional” in order to protect the Prime Minister. It ends with my discovery of the plight of “Anne,” a Peterborough woman who had an affair with a PM and CSIS’s efforts to try to kill me in a traffic accident.

Chapters 5-6

Unwritten. These two chapters are reserved for “Anne’s Story,” a woman from Peterborough now in her early thirties who had a brief liaison with a Prime Minister, probably the Rt. Hon. Paul Martin. Evidence obtained from the national media indicates that the PM may have had marital problems with his wife, Sheila, at that time (or was caused by?). Information to be provided by Erin, “Anne’s” real first name.

Middle section of photographic inserts:

Provided in the “Gangstalkers” and the “Evidence” directories. This includes a proposed section called About Gangstalkers, a presentation of pictures I have taken along with captions, and includes the “safehouses” used by CSIS to monitor me and to house the gangstalkers. It may also include assorted letters provided in “Evidence” from CSIS alleging I was a “subversive” at the time I was cleared to TSSA, indicating that this status was attributed because I knew the PM was a former CSIS operative, as well as redacted documents obtained through the Privacy Act indicating I was suspected of being an American spy; photographs and documents showing a CSIS officer impersonating Michelle Shephard, a Toronto Star reporter; photograph showing the CSIS officer impersonating Lois Tuffin, a Peterborough This Week editor; a letter from my employer, CBSA, threatening my job after posting a early draft of the PM’s early activity on behalf of CSIS on the internet; a copy of the Security of Information Act; proposed pictures of CSIS officers and managers; etc. Approximate length: 40 pages.

Suggested Chapter 7

Unwritten. A proposed chapter to be written by a lawyer conversant with the origins and workings of the Security of Information Act, with a focus on the implications on the lives of innocent Canadians by CSIS actions, and a explanation of why the power under SOIA does not extend below PM level. Remuneration by the publisher could be sent directory to the lawyer.

Chapter 8

Unwritten. This chapter will show how CSIS gangstalking and incompetent investigating has damaged the lives of innocent Muslim Canadians, merging information presented here with media accounts and interviews with the subjects. Focus on one or two cases of Muslim Canadians is proposed, and specifically the ‘“extra-legal” behaviour by CSIS. This chapter might flow into a discussion on the origins of gangstalking and the “diffuse and disrupt” policy in CSIS. Some discussion of gangstalking efforts in the U.S. and in the U.K., and discussion of other books on gangstalking, etc. Research will be required.

Chapter 9

Unwritten. This chapter (or two) will continue my story relating from September 2008 to the winter of 2010-11. It will include my failure to obtain assistance by Ottawa Police; my complaint to the Office of the Independent Police Review Director; failure to obtain a lawyer through CSIS interference; efforts to contact the media; efforts to broker a deal with the government; frequent CSIS attempts to impersonate others; CSIS suborning my extended family and sister; CSIS in the legal field, media, etc.


Unwritten. The character of this concluding chapter depends on how the theme has been understood by the reader. It could present this story as a “danger signal” to conclude with prescriptive remedies; i.e., ideas for reform, merging human rights with national security; reform of SIRC; reform for the chain of command within the Canadian state as approached by the SOIA, particularly in situations of national emergency; ideas to define “national security.” Alternatively, the theme could be understood as illustrative of our descent into Canadian fascism, in which corroborative evidence could be presented to show how liberal Canada has died. Either way, discussions and research would be required.


Life Under CSIS Rule

Chapter I

January 2007

The nightmare began when I sat in Starbucks in the Ottawa Marriott Hotel.

I was sipping my favourite triple-mocha when an auburn-haired lady entered, bee-lined to the table beside me, sat and stared at me. Coat on. No coffee. Her hands were folded in her lap. There was no intensity in her eyes, but she kept on staring. Naturally I was perplexed, but I ignored her and my gaze wandered to another table beside me where a game of musical chairs broke out. A man sitting at the table doing nothing but fiddling his thumbs, left his seat too quickly and was just-as-quickly replaced by another. Then a third. Not a coffee between them. It was a peculiar sight and I returned to work a few minutes later, mystified.

Most people have weird days too. I suppose my situation was very like those manufactured situations in the old TV series Candid Camera, filming unsuspecting strangers to gauge their reaction. For me, this game played itself out the next day at Starbucks with different people, and intermittently after that. Nobody appeared to say, “Hey, this is a joke” or pointing out the hidden camera.

At work, meanwhile, someone had used my computer overnight and left little traces behind, called “electronic footprints’ by the Information Technology (IT) people. I worked for the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) as an Intelligence Analyst in the Intelligence directorate. I was 53 years old with a Masters in International Relations (Terrorism) and had 20 years in the government, so I knew that the IT people accessed our computers regularly for upgrades and repairs; however this midnight visit looked suspiciously like an investigation. For one thing, why do it at midnight? If it wasn’t an investigation, on the other hand, it could be something far worse.

Right about then, a woman from our Toronto office called to ask if I had used one of their work files. Customs, Revenue and most other departments divide Canada into districts (or “ports” in the case of Customs) who “own” a file based on the Canadian’s location, usually his or her address. She quoted my User ID over the phone but I had never used the field file. HQ analysts like me almost never do. A CBSA officer had been arrested recently for ‘“internal conspiracy‚” Customs jargon for bad things done by employees with somebody else and it was reported in the media. This kind of thing happens more often than Canadians realize so my first reaction was alarm. Had organized crime penetrated CBSA and used my User ID? I called the woman in Toronto back and reported it up the line in Ottawa. She called back saying it was a false alarm but her “explanation” was nonsense.
Taken together, I reported these things to my new manager, Scott. A new top-secret “intel” unit had just been formed, called “Current Intelligence,” one of the most secure at CBSA, and I was Scott’s first employee. We worked in the ‘“Box,” a windowless secure room with the normal toys of a high-security area, such as a locked access, a separate commissionaire, safes, etc. I told him I thought I was under some form of investigation. Scott frowned in response. He disappeared soon after and was gone for several days for meetings with CSIS, among other things. He was aloof when he returned.

‘“Did you get a letter pulling your security clearance?” he asked.

“No,” I replied, surprised. “Have I done something wrong?”

He never answered that question.

I was worried. I knew I had done nothing wrong, but the public service is filled with personalities that shouldn’t be given responsibility to run a lemonade stand, let alone to control budgets and the futures of other people. Public servants also carry grudges. But it was on the street where my problems began.
