“There is no occupation of Lebanon by Syria. This is a bi-lateral arrangement between the two sovereign governments.”

HALIFAX (April 19, 2005) – From April 4 to 8 US Homeland Security carried out a massive exercise, “Exercise Triple Play,” which included the provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, home of the strategic port of Halifax where US President George W Bush “visited” on December 3, speaking to 300 mainly homeland security personnel at Pier 21.
According to a press release on the Homeland Security website, the exercise was the largest ever conducted by the US, involving some 10,000 people at various levels of government in the United States, 19 Canadian federal departments and agencies as well as Britain.

A Google search reveals that there has so far been a complete media blackout in Canada on the exercise following the initial announcement one month ago.
This raises the question: was this exercise a “preventive” exercise or a totally criminal blackmail of gigantic proportions? Continue reading
TML Daily vigorously denounces the cover-up by the Government of Canada regarding the violation of Canadian sovereignty by the U.S. On April 7, Defence Minister Bill Graham stated that the U.S. Department of Defence had only agreed to delay the launch of a Titan IV rocket, which is set to drop a 10-tonne booster in a 25 square kilometre “hazard area” located 315 km southeast of St. John’s, Newfoundland.
