Kelly 91: Serco’s Long Range Arson Group, Sauder’s Pig-Farm Pension Demons, McVicar’s Fraud On Pacific Rim
General John F. Kelly
White House Chief of Staff
Washington, D.C. 20528
Open letter from the Cloud Centric Crime Scene Investigators of Abel Danger
September 19, 2017
Dear General Kelly:
Please accept Brief 91 from Field McConnell – United States Marine and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – on Serco‘s apparent deployment of a Long Range Arson Group, originally set up by RCA GB as the Long Range Desert Group in WWII and currently equipped with the Vancouver Police Department’s radio and computer dispatch system developed by McDonald Dettwiler and Associates, to position incendiary bombs in the Salomon Brothers Building (WTC7) in New York prior to demolition on 9/11.
McConnell alleges that Serco shareholders equipped faculty or alumni of the UBC Sauder School of Business including Jim Chu, a former-Chief Constable of the Vancouver Police Department, and Tracey McVicar, the Vancouver managing partner of the CAI private equity group, with Demon face recognition software so they could track up to 2,000 guests through cannibal raves at a BC pig farm (1996-2002) and build a global community of bank, private-equity and pension-fund managers to govern targeted jurisdictions without the consent of the governed through arson, murder, blackmail and fraud.
McConnell alleges that Serco shareholders, including the U.S. Teachers’ (TIAA) pension fund, the U.K. Universities Superannuation Scheme and HSBC, deployed Tracey McVicar to New York on 9/11 to coordinate the Long Range Arson Group attack on the World Trade Center where most of the evidence of apparent force-placed insurance frauds on WTC leaseholders or owners was vaporized in WTC7.
McConnell alleges that Serco shareholders deployed Tracey McVicar and Jim Chu to coordinate serial acts of sabotage by the Long Range Arson Group on the Pacific Rim Resort formerly owned by former resort operator John English and his family and now transferred through alleged lender-placed insurance frauds by a network of apparently-blackmailed pig farm lawyers to bcIMC, the provincial pension fund with $135 billion of assets under management on behalf of 500,000 public employees, including faculty at the Sauder School of Business and the firefighters and police who attended arsons at the resort.
Given that Serco‘s Long Range Arson Group operates the United States Defense Ammunition Center, you may want McConnell to extend this brief in a face-to-face meeting at a time and place of your choosing.

“B.C. FAMILY SEEKS B.C. COURT OF APPEAL REVIEW OF FORECLOSURE OF PACIFIC RIM RESORT IN TOFINO
Posted on May 21, 2015 by bobmitchellwriter
TORONTO NEWS WIRE SERVICESVANCOUVER, B.C. – A Tofino resort family is heading to the B.C. Court of Appeal on May 28 seeking the dismissal of a judgment against them based on new information that suggests they were victims of a conspiracy allegedly involving B.C. Investment Management Corp. (bcIMC).
The resort property was acquired by bcIMC in 2013 aided by what the family alleges were criminal means and involving other agencies of the B.C. government including B.C. Hydro and B.C.’s aboriginal treaty negotiators as well as by allegedly improper representation by the family’s lawyer.
BCIMC is the manager of B.C. public-sector pension funds totalling about $114 billion. The court hearing will take place in the B.C. Court of Appeal at 10 a.m. on May 28
in the Supreme Court of B.C. at 800 Smythe St., Vancouver, B.C.
A sworn affidavit filed in Victoria, B.C. on March 31, 2015 by former resort operator John English alleges that he and his family were robbed of their assets and left in financial ruin after losing their home and resort business, which they had owned and operated for 30 years. It includes more than 2,000 feet of white sand beach near Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island as well as buildings, RV sites and undeveloped acreage.
“My family and I have been the victims of domestic terrorism. We were subjected to multiple acts of arson and property damage and there were attempts on my life and on my son’s life,” English says, claiming those acts were intended to cause a distress sale at a price far below true market value.
English says information he has obtained since the judgment allegedly shows evidence of a government conspiracy to obtain the property as cheaply as possible for use in an aboriginal treaty settlement.
English says he has since learned that bcIMC operating through its wholly owned subsidiary Parkbridge Lifestyle Communities Inc. was allegedly collaborating with B.C. Hydro and the B.C. Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs to acquire the English family’s property.
English says he was informed in 2013 by the Chief and Councillors of the Tla-o-Qui-Aht First Nation in Tofino that the B.C. Government in 2010 had promised that they would give them the English family’s resort and property as part of their Treaty Settlement but also had told the Chief and Councillors to “keep it a secret or the price would go up.”
These statements have been made in sworn declarations filed with the Court and supportive evidence of the allegations will be presented on May 28 at the Court of Appeal hearing.
“The string of arson attacks and other harassments against us during negotiations to refinance and/or sell our property were obviously part of a campaign to intimidate us into a distress sale at below-market prices and unfortunately it now appears the lawyer acting for us for some of that time, Gregory Harney of Victoria, was not acting in our best interests either, such as by offering a supposed financial rescue from an associate of his that proved to be illusory, and by acting instead in the interests of bcIMC,” says English.
In the statement of facts filed in the Court, English alleges that when Harney was hired to act for his family to stop an unlawful foreclosure by Mission Creek Ltd. he did not carry out this assignment and instead allegedly promoted the interests of bcIMC and attempted to coerce and force English to sell the family’s resort property to bcIMC for approximately 15 per cent of its appraised value, which they refused to do.
When English refused to accede to Harney’s demands that the family sell to bcIMC at this low price, which would have left the English family destitute, Harney resigned as their representative and sent them a bill for $1.1 million that English alleges was far in excess of what he had agreed to charge when he was retained, namely that Harney would take two RV site leases and $10,000 for expenses as his total fee.
English has since obtained advice from other legal advisors, who believe Harney hit them with the vastly-inflated bill in order to assist bcIMC to take all of the English family’s property illegally so the B.C. government could then allegedly use the resort and its land as part of a potential treaty settlement with the local First Nation, in which case Harney may also allegedly have been part of an apparent criminal conspiracy.
When the English family complained to the President of the Law Society of B.C. about the inflated invoice Harney issued a new bill for $520,000 and then resigned in October 2011 and sued them in B.C. Supreme Court for $520,000. He managed to obtain a Judgment for $250,000 but that was based on what English now alleges was a fraudulently-altered bill which English alleges Harney filed secretly a few weeks before the hearing.
English is seeking to set aside a judgment of Mr. Justice Bracken of March 28, 2013 ordering them to pay $256,000 to Victoria lawyer Gregory Harney, who was hired in April 2011 to stop a foreclosure by Mission Creek of the English family’s property. English claims Harney acted ineffectively during an attempted refinancing of the property and furthermore that Harney’s actions as their lawyer blatantly breached many provisions of the B.C. Legal Professions Act and Law Society of B.C. regulations and also may have included filing fraudulent documents in court.
English also has filed a formal complaint with the Law Society of B.C. asking that Harney be disbarred for his conduct and he has also sued Harney in B.C. Supreme Court for the English family’s losses and damages.
Had the courts been aware of the new evidence English is confident that Harney’s claim against them would have been dismissed entirely and he now is hopeful that the B.C. Court of Appeal will remediate the above and other injustices.
English alleges the process of the court-ordered sale of his family’s resort was undermined and perverted by predatory agents of bcIMC who materially benefited corporately and perhaps individually from the commission of numerous indictable criminal acts of domestic terrorism against him and his family and against their lands, home and resort business as part of a determined and calculated criminal effort to acquire their lands at far below market values, apparently for potential use in settling local native land claims and treaty negotiations.

“About Us Welcome to the International Fire Training Centre (IFTC). We are part of the globally respected services company, Serco.
International Fire Training Centre is the leading aviation fire training centre in the world. Since 1981 it has been located at Durham Tees Valley Airport in the North East of England in what was once a historic Royal Air Force base. During the Second World War it was home to a detachment from the Royal Canadian Air Force flying Lancaster bombers.
The centre is situated in the countryside between Middlesbrough and Darlington both of which are only a few miles away and the city of Newcastle lies 30 minutes away by train.
IFTC trained firefighters are the best in the world. As a graduate of our internationally renowned training centre you will become an elite firefighter of the highest calibre armed with the skills, knowledge and instincts necessary to deal with extreme emergencies at any location in any country.
The training we provide is thorough and rigorous and we set stringent and demanding standards. We have been training new and experienced firefighters from across the globe for decades and our facilities are second to none.”
“All police agencies in BC need to share information. The current VPD RMS is not interfaced with any other police agencies. Therefore, other police agencies (RCMP and municipal) outside of the city cannot access the substantial amount of information which our police department collects, and the VPD cannot access the records systems of adjoining agencies. A recent example occurred with our Home Invasion Task Force who only became aware of a similar pattern home invasion in Coquitlam involving an elderly victim, through a radio news report. Our Detectives then phoned Coquitlam to compare investigative notes. Another recent example involves a gang associate who sought a criminal record clearance from the VPD because he wanted to volunteer at a youth center. Our RMS revealed his gang ties and he was denied his clearance. Had he applied for a clearance at any other local police agency, he would have received a clearance as they do not access the VPD RMS.
Information sharing was identified as a key recommendation in the 1994 Oppal Commission of Inquiry into Policing in BC. Justice Campbell, in his review of the Paul Bernardo case in Ontario, also concluded that police agencies must share information.
5. Stakeholder Involvement
The Attorney General has written to Police Boards and Councils and he unequivocally supports the project (see attached).
On August 18, 1999, the E-Comm Board passed a motion authorizing the General Manager to negotiate a contract with MDA/Versaterm subject to Council and Police Board approvals. Consistent with other E-Comm procurements such as the Radio and Computer Dispatch System, the Project Manager role is filled by Mr. Clyde Hosein, Manager of Facilities Development.
In addition to Vancouver, other agencies participating in Phase 1 are Richmond RCMP and Port Moody Police. Their Councils are being approached this month as well. Additional councils will be approached as Phase 2 (Greater Victoria) and Phase 3 (the remainder of Greater Vancouver) proceed. Phase 4 is the remainder of the Province.”
“ORBITAL COMPLETES INITIAL PHASE OF MDA DIVESTITURE WITH SALE OF 12.35 MILLION SHARES FOR $112 MILLION
Company Expects to Close 5.65 Million Share Second Phase by the End of June
(Dulles, VA 31 May 2001) — Orbital Sciences Corporation (NYSE: ORB) today announced that it has completed the sale of 12.35 million shares of its MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates, Ltd. subsidiary (TSE: MDA) for approximately $112 million. The closing of the transaction represents a major step forward in the company’s execution of its company-wide restructuring that focuses on its core space technology products. Orbital stated that it intends to use the proceeds from the sale to reduce debt, to boost cash reserves for working capital and for other general corporate purposes.
The shares were sold to a group of Canadian investors that include CAI Capital Partners and Company II, L.P., British Columbia Investment Management Corporation (BCIMC) and the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board [In preparation for spot-fixed body-count attack on the United States of 9/11]. Orbital is also aiming to close the sale of its remaining 5.65 million MDA shares by the end of June, which is allowed for under a one-month extension to the purchase option agreement with CAI and BCIMC that was originally announced on April 16, 2001.”
“Jim Chu, COM (simplified Chinese: 朱小荪; traditional Chinese: 朱小蓀; pinyin: Zhū Xiǎosūn) is a former-Chief Constable of the Vancouver Police Department (VPD). On June 21, 2007, Jim Chu was named as the successor of Chief Constable Jamie Graham, who retired in August. Chu is the first non-white chief constable in Vancouver.

He is the author of a 2001 book, Law Enforcement Information Technology.”
“POLICE BUST INTERNATIONAL DRUG RING
National Post (Canada) 2002-07-11
$95M in Drugs Seized
Police in three provinces seized more than $95-million worth of high-demand drugs and arrested dozens of men and women who allegedly co-operated to bring the immense haul into Canada by air, land and sea.
Heralding the operation as one of the widest police dragnets against organized crime in Canada, police officials say they dismantled four crime groups in Halifax, Montreal, Toronto and Hamilton that allegedly worked to bring cocaine and hashish along a complicated path from South America and the Caribbean to Canadian streets.
“We have arrested over 35 individuals, all significant players at all levels in their criminal network — these were the upper echelons, the importers, the facilitators, the dealers,” said RCMP Inspector Linda Martell.
Arrested yesterday were employees at the port in Halifax, a union member who unloads the ships, a prominent associate of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang in Quebec, a man with links to Mafia groups in Ontario, several career criminals, others with no criminal past and people ranging in age from 22 to 71.
The diverse group represents the new face of organized crime, police said.
“Organized crime is no longer working in isolated groups,” said Insp. Martell.
“They work in what we have coined a virtual floating matrix. A complex infrastructure of networks and contacts that can work anywhere, anytime.
“They gather expertise from their resource pool, depending on the type of criminal enterprise they need to facilitate. They disperse when their goal is achieved and gather again, often times with different players.””

“Tracey McVicar on her journey from Wall Street wizard to inner-city teacher to one of B.C.’s most influential board directors
It took one book to radically shake up Tracey McVicar’s life.
Thanks to Ordinary Resurrections: Children in the Years of Hope, based on the experiences of educator Jonathan Kozol in a South Bronx school, McVicar left 12 years of investment banking during the frenzied technology run-up of the ’90s to teach kids in an inner-city New York City school in 2001. Even though she later returned to finance (she’s now the Vancouver managing partner of private equity firm CAI Capital Management Co.), it’s a career curveball that she describes as “living a dream.”
“CAI and our investee companies benefit from the participation of our SPECIAL INVESTORS, a group of seasoned leaders, most of whom have spent their careers running large and diverse businesses. Collectively, they have served as directors of over one hundred leading North American companies. They assist CAI and our portfolio companies by identifying and creating opportunities for investment and growth as well as, on occasion, serving on the boards of those companies.

While she found investment banking rewarding and enjoyed how the high-performing environment attracted smart people, often with a good sense of humour, McVicar laments the singular focus on making money. The business, says the UBC commerce grad, is “bereft of helping others by its nature. To be really good, you have to be consumed by it and really live it.” She describes an environment where people were hiring Bryan Adams for their weddings, and everybody one-upped each other on their latest luxury vehicle. “I wondered to myself, ‘Just who are you?’ I felt I was going in a direction that wouldn’t be very fulfilling later.”
Turns out “fulfillment” is a recurring theme over our brunch of poached eggs and bacon at Mosaic restaurant in Vancouver’s Hyatt hotel. McVicar—who worked at RBC Capital Markets from 1990 to 1997 and Raymond James Ltd. (and its predecessor, Goepel Shields & Partners) from 1997 to 2001—set up NYC-headquartered CAI in Vancouver after returning to B.C. following 9/11. “Of course that changed everything,” says McVicar, who was in Brooklyn at the time of the attacks although had been due to pick up some computers, donated to her school, at the World Trade Center that morning. “My idealistic dream of teaching in the inner city, earning $28,000 a year, living in New York, was just that—a dream. I realized that both me and the school would be much better off if I went back to finance, back to Canada and donated that amount every year instead.”
However, teaching undoubtedly spurred McVicar to engage more with the community and join boards as if they were a full-time job. From not-for-profits such as Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland and Science World to mega corporations such as BC Hydro and Teck Resources, the 47-year-old Quilchena resident has become one of the province’s most coveted board directors. McVicar also runs an annual Golf for Good charity tournament—in its ninth year—which has brought in more than $1 million. (“You have to be careful because at a certain point people won’t take your call anymore,” she says, with a slight laugh. “Then you’ve got the quid pro quo that if I tap you, then you’re going to tap me or my firm. And I get that—it’s how it all works.”)
The mother of a five-year-old son adopted from Vietnam (who’s often brought to her myriad meetings) is well-versed in board machinations in general. “I know how to study it intently for a short period of time to make a contribution,” she says. “It’s important who is with you at the table because you can get log-jammed and I’ve watched enough ‘crazy’ on boards.”
A self-confessed people collector, McVicar admits she carries a binder in her purse with names for the boards she has to reject. Putting down the phone without forwarding five names—and reasons why they are good—is not an option: “It’s my job to never let a seat go unfilled without a good person who wants to serve.””
“SERCO: ‘The biggest company you’ve never heard of’
JULY 7, 2013 BY 21WIRE
21st Century Wire says…
As politicians asset-strip the public’s portfolio of properties, infrastructure and services, one multinational corporation has grown as a result – and its scope and reach may shock many people who have not been paying attention.
All around the globe, our governments are busy outsourcing public-sector services like health, education, police, prisons, money delivery and military – to the esteemed private sector. It’s sold to the public as a solution to avoiding higher taxes, while retaining better services. But it’s simply an accountancy shell game, where the government kicks the can down the road by spreading the bill to the taxpayer over a longer period of time, in order to avoid any large upfront payments – all the while, allowing a private corporation to extend its influence over society. This, by definition, is fascism.
They are called SERCO, and they run countries…

“The National Crime Squad co-ordinated arrests of suspected paedophiles across 19 separate countries on 28 November using information supplied by Demon Internet.
The Internet service provider was approached by the National Crime Squad and agreed to allow officers to access its servers. This led to the recovery of data showing the activity of nearly 1,500 newsgroups during a two-week period.
From this data, officers established that almost 10,000 Internet Protocol (IP) addresses had accessed more than 30 of the Web sites carrying paedophilia. For operational reasons this number was whittled down to just over 400 addresses of those specifically distributing paedophiliac images.
The information was then distributed via Interpol to the countries identified with the suspects, and evidence packs on each of the targets were distributed to the relevant police forces
Detective Superintendent Peter Spindler, leading the investigation for the National Crime Squad, said: “With the assistance of Demon Internet and the support and guidance of the National High-Tech Crime Unit, we are able to show that those accessing these newsgroups did so regularly and with purpose.
“We also learnt, not surprisingly, that those abusing the Internet have learnt from recent police successes how best to protect their true identities,” he added.
The National Crime Squad and Serco, its IT partner, have developed facial mapping software that they hope to use to identify the abused children featured on the paedophiliac sites.”

“NPL contract with Serco extended
It has been agreed to extend Serco‘s existing contract to operate the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) on behalf of the UK’s Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) for a period of up to 12 months from 1 April 2014.
Last year, the Government announced its intention to look at alternative structures for the operation, investment and ownership of NPL. This extension, made under the existing Government Owned, Contractor Operated (GOCO) model, will aid the selection of a new partnership from a shortlist led by four UK universities (University of Edinburgh; University of Southampton; University of Strathclyde; and University of Surrey) and support the transition to the new arrangement.
Brian Bowsher, NPL’s Managing Director, said: “This extension will greatly aid with the transition to NPL’s new status. We remain committed to growing our science, its impact and our third party work, and our association with Serco will ensure that this continues.”
Ian Downie, Serco‘s Strategic Partnerships Director said: “We are pleased to be extending our partnership. Over the coming months, Serco will work closely with BIS, the National Measurement Office (NMO) and their new partner to ensure NPL continues to deliver world-class science output and is ready to seamlessly transfer into its new organisation.”
“Serco said goodbye to the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) at the end of December 2014 after 19 years of extraordinary innovation and science that has seen the establishment build a world-leading reputation and deliver billions of pounds of benefit for the UK economy. During that period under Serco‘s management and leadership, NPL has delivered an extraordinary variety and breadth of accomplishments for the UK’s economy and industry. Some of the key achievements during that time have been: -NPL’s caesium fountain atomic clock is accurate to 1 second in 158 million years and NPL is playing a key role in introducing rigour to high frequency trading in the City through NPLTime.”
