Regarding the following text from the Heritage Front Affair - A report
to the Solicitor General of Canada from the Security Intelligence Review
Committee, Dec. 9, 1994.
Seated around Andrews' table with him at the weekly gathering were
five people who had jobs. The rest of those present stood around the table;
numbering about 10 people, Andrews called them his "Androids":
unemployed persons who lived in Andrews' rooming houses. We were told that
Andrews took the cheques they received, subtracted the rent and other expenses,
and gave them the rest of their money, making a big production at his meetings
of having them come up and get their money from him. Among other behaviours,
Andrews berated his people for not remembering certain acronyms, such as
OMS (one man show), during the tests that he administered.
b) Chapter 3.2.4
A significant event took place in April, 1989. Don Andrews conducted
a special meeting. His "Androids" were invited to his mansion.
The people present were introduced to a friend who had been in Toronto
for just a few days: Wolfgang Walter Droege.
Droege was considered to be the senior statesman of the extreme right movement and, as a privilege, he sat at the table in Andrews' house.
c) Chapter 3.3.1
The Source believed that most people were chosen because they would
not embarrass Andrews and his Party. Those who owned luggage were also
favoured. Another criterion was money. There was to be a stopover in Rome
for a plane change and Andrews wanted people who had enough money to pay
for their own accommodation there. Andrews paid for most of the rest of
the trip by using money advanced by Libya; this was likely arranged through
a Libyan agent.
d) Chapter 3.3.2
After the ship docked, the NPC group were not allowed to disembark
and only after several days of complaining were they allowed to reside
in Camp Kadhafi some miles from Tripoli.
e) Chapter 3.3.3
The NPC members were arrested and some received threats from US officers.
They were strip-searched and had their body cavities probed for contraband.
The entire group, including the Source, were detained by US Customs for several hours and subjected to interviews.
Anne Ladas and Nicola Polinuk telephoned Don Andrews who instructed them to come back to Canada.
f) Chapter 3.3.4
The entire group had worried about being attacked in Libya, they
were arrested in Chicago and they were subjected to humiliating interviews
and body cavity searches; people were generally tired and fed up.
The general consensus was that Don Andrews' actions and, in particular, the Libyan trip, did the most to cause people to leave the Nationalist Party of Canada.
g) Chapter 3.3.5
The Heritage Front was to have, in theory, four levels: the first
would be "the Brethren": Droege, Lincoln, and Bristow. The second
would comprise the Executive Council: James Dawson, the Brethren and rising
stars in the HF. The third would be the HF membership and the last level
would comprise supporters and subscribers to the new newsletter.
Droege wanted the Heritage Front to be a more focused version of The Order in the United States. The group would attack armoured cars and black drug dealers for funds.
Droege hoped to get cash from the Libyans in return for information on Jewish groups in Canada.
h) Chapter 4.1
We learned that, on March 18, 1990, Droege, Bristow, Lincoln, Donna
Elliot and others were responsible for disrupting a television broadcast.
The program was aired on TV Ontario and dealt with racism issues. During
the telephone-in portion of the program, the Heritage Front group was able
to partially tie up the telephone lines, and they "were also able
to start a number of arguments with the guest panel and state their white
1.) That I am the person referred to in the above text and in such have
knowledge to the matters stated herein, or that I have first hand knowledge
of the events that took place in the above text.
2.) That I know the following to be a false statement in the above text corrected by me as follows:
First let me begin by objecting to my name even being published in this
report as I am not a white supremacist and I certainly am in no possible
way a threat to national security of this country. I may not agree with
some government policies and left-leaning causes like millions of other
Canadians but I exercise my rights at the ballot box.
Secondly let me state that to my knowledge of certain events in this report that it is full of half truths and down right lies. By your own admission certain individuals had problems with Grant Bristow from the beginning and had trouble controlling him. He was a wannabe "James Bond" and was willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to achieve this. You verify this in your own report.
[Reguarding text at top of this affidavit]
a: I have never heard anyone use the term "Andriods" or "Necro-Nazi" This can only be Grant Bristow's sarcasm.
b: Don Andrews house is certainly no mansion and if you were checking on these things you would verify that and again note Grant's sarcasm. "as a privilege, he sat at the table in Andrews' house" Really, anyone and everyone could sit at the table in Andrew's home. It was certainly no privilege -- again Grant's style of sarcasm.
c: Here's more of Grant's Sarcasm. "Those who had luggage were also favoured", "Another criterion was money". Both of which were never said. "Andrews paid for most of the rest of the trip by using money advanced by Libya; this was likely arranged through a Libyan agent" Andrews never received advanced money! The trip was already paid for and the only thing that was received was the airline tickets.
d: No one was allowed to disembark when we first arrived because there was groups dancing and entertaining us on land as we watched from the ship. Shortly after, two members from our group disembarked along with selected members of other groups to meet the welcoming committee. The next day everyone on the ship were taken to visit Kadhafis bombed house. On return, word had spread through the ship who we were. A woman from Ottawa, who had been on the first trip had spread the word. The Libyans thought it best to separate us because the mostly leftist groups didn't like us being there and had prevented us from boarding the bus to go to the celebrations at a stadium. The Libyans arranged for us to go in a separate mini-bus and after the ceremonies we were taken to another place. It was not named 'Camp Kadhafi" - That was a term again used by Grant Bristow the next day because we discovered Col. Kadhafi's tent on the grounds. Also -- The Libyans uniform consisted of a T-Shirt, Baseball hat and light pants. Everyone wore the uniform including Grant Bristow. Max French never called the two "Dissidents" every imaginable name and is absolutely right when he states that he denies this account. There are pictures to prove this.
e: We were not arrested, only Droege. I personally heard no threats and we were all in a group, sitting on the floor playing cards. While some may have been strip searched, most were definitely not including myself. I was only patted down (with clothes on) and in no way was my body cavities probed for contraband, nor was I subjected to an interview, except in passing comments or a few simple questions, ie: Were their any Americans there (Libya). We had nothing to hide, we had done nothing wrong. It was not unlawful for Canadians to go to Libya, like Cuba -- Just Americans. It was nothing more than a free trip to most people. "Anne Ladas and Nicola Polinuk telephoned Don Andrews who instructed them to come back to Canada" We were coming back to Canada, Chicago was only to change planes.
f: Again, this is simply not true. We were never worried about being attacked in Libya (by what?), never subjected to humiliating interviews and most never had body cavity searches. And reguarding the Libya trip causing people to leave the NPC is not true, it was completely other factors which made our decision.
g: I have never heard the term "Brethren" ever used and never heard that the HF was to have four levels. Regarding the lie that the HF was going to rob armoured cars, this is a down right lie! These statements are right out of the novel "the Silent Brotherhood", pages 126, 127 and 262, and could also have come out of the Turner Diaries. Attached here are the aforesaid pages as exibit A, B, and C. I have never heard anyone including Droege make any statements even remotely close to this. It is absolutely ridiculous. Regarding Droege getting money from Libyans, again this is ridiculous, for starters there were only two people (both from the NPC) who knew who the contact was and that contact was in Libya only. No contact in Canada, so how could he possibly contact any officials in Canada, and why Montreal.
h: This never happened with me. I have never or would ever phone any television or radio shows, as I simply would have been to nervous to participate in such an event. I have never seen that program and was probably working at the time. I would like to hear any evidence to back this up, ie my voice on the air, because there can't be and I resent my name being thrown into this report without just cause on an event that I never participated in even though there would be nothing wrong in doing so. Special interest groups phone in all the time to television and radio talk shows especially when the topic is of interest to them or about them.
In closing I would like to state. If CSIS could see from the beginning that they would have trouble controlling Grant Bristow and they clearly see his character flaws, why on earth would they change their minds and use this individual? Why would you take this man's word as the gospel truth without giving everyone an opportunity to defend themselves against such accusations or the right to challenge Grant Bristow on his interpretation of events. Grant did try to incite people into doing things that could cause trouble and possible arrests on several occasions and was very upset when people wouldn't bite. This is fact.
I would like to think that you would be serious in getting down to the true events and not just exaggerations, half truths and Grant's descriptive sarcasm. Unlike Mr. Bristow, I do not have a hidden agenda and have no reason to lie.
