The Water War Crimes are the the crimes carried out by political, legal, judicial and business insiders, in Canada, who attempted to swindle control of a bulk water export monopoly over the export of fresh water from Canada to the United States and Mexico, the subsequent viscious personal attack on British Columbia lawyer John Carten by the Governments of Canada and British Columbia because, as a lawyer, he was embarked on a path that would expose their crimes that included a dispicable criminal attack upon Ms. Karen Gibbs and her children because she was assisting Mr. Carten at the time.

From March 1, 2015, this blog will attempt to publish the ongoing posts on the New Developments page at the Water War Crimes web site. We attempted to do that in the past but missed a big chunk of time and hope to be able to keep it regular now that we have some extra time.

The Water War Crimes web site tells the story in great detail and we add updates because the case is unfolding.

The Canadian media will not report the story so we have used the internet to publicize the crimes by the insiders and the corruption in Canada's judicial, legal and political systems.

In the process, we have systematically destroyed many of our enemies but the governments of British Columbia and Canada continue to refuse a fair and equitable settlement and we continue our quest for redress in Canada's crooked court system and so more insiders are compromised and then murdered or mysteriously drop dead.

Twelve crooked judges involved were exposed as crooks and suddenly died. We think some of those judges were murdered. Six Chief Justices who manipulated the system against us were exposed and resigned, one was murdered and the other committed suicide.

Politicians, lawyers and civil servants who abused their positions of power were exposed, resigned or, suddenly, dropped dead. The death toll now stands at over forty and is likely to rise. The list of the sudden deaths linked to the Water War Crimes is published on the web site page entitled the Graveyard of the Guilty.

A remnant of the crooked political, judicial and legal insiders within the Governnments of Canada and British Columbia and some of Canada's most powerful law firms have effectively used their influence to manipulate Canada's judiciary to get the case thrown out without any hearing on its merits.

The insiders are desperate and periodically they lash out at Mr. Carten with illegal jailings, malicious prosecutions and other crooked legal tactics.

In February 2016, the Law Society of British Columbia commenced a vile attempt to destroy Mr. Carten again because he was helping some people who were victims of a criminal lawyer / judge gang operating in the courts.

This is a huge story that has been suppressed and mis-represented by the Canadian media and it continues to influence Canadian politics to this day.

Prothonotary Lafreniere Covers Up Corruption By Federal Court Officer

Early Friday, January 22, 2010, Federal Court prothonotary, Roger Lafreniere, refused to permit Mr. Carten and Ms. Gibbs pursue an investigation of what appears to have been a clear case of criminal corruption by a Federal Court Officer, namely Joanne Platt, a lawyer and long term employee of a company known as Themis Program Management and Consulting Ltd. who was witnessed trying to secretly communicate with a judge during a trial. The case is also complicated by the fact that Federal Government employees made fraudulent submissions to prothonotary Lafreniere in court documents that the prothonotary adopted even though he was alerted to the fraud.

The case reeks of corruption and the Canadian Judicial Council has been asked to investigate.

The case is now back on the desk of Federal Court Chief Justice Allan Lutfy who must decide if he is going to permit an open and public hearing of the appeal of the decision by the prothonotary dismissing the case. The Attorney Generals for the Governments of Canada and British Columbia and five major law firms have asked for a secret hearing.

The case involves well documented allegations of judicial corruption and judicial case fixing by the political regime of Canada's former Prime Minister, Jean Chretien, who left office amid charges of massive corruption. Both Mr. Lafreniere and Mr. Lutfy were appointed to their positions with the Federal Court by Prime Minister, Jean Chretien, and they have effectively delayed the lawsuit filed by Mr. Carten and Ms. Gibb for two years.

Ms. Gibbs has asked her member of Parliament Ron Cannan of Kelowna to investigagte but, like other Canadian politicians, he is afraid to speak out about judicial corruption.

Mr. Carten has asked Canada's Justice Minister Rob Nicholson to investigate the political bias delay and stalling by the court officers in question but Mr. Nicholson has refused to do so and refuses to address to allegations of fraud by his Deputy Minister, John Sims. Q.C.

The Canadian judiciary has become politicized over the past decades commencing with the regime of the self admitted communist, Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, and, in polls carried out over the past few years, the Canadian judiciary have been receiving greatly reduced public approval ratings.

Federal Court Chief Justice Lufty Tosses Hot Potato Back to The West Coast

The WaterWarCrimes lawsuit saw some interesting stick-handling today when Chief Justice Alan Lutfy picked up the puck deep inside the Ottawa end zone and made a long pass out to a front line player, prothonotary, Roger Lafreniere, (shown here to the right) in Vancouver.

"Oral directions received from the Court: Chief Justice Lutfy dated 21-JAN-2010 directing that Plaintiffs' letter dated January 21, 2010 is to be referred to the attention of Prothonotary Lafrenière placed on file on 21-JAN-2010"
What is at issue here is the integrity, authority and dignity of the Federal Court system in Canada.
An Officer of the Court, Ms. Joanne Platt, a lawyer with a long career with Themis Program Management and Consulting Ltd., was witnessed making secret signals to presiding judge, Mr. Justice Peter Leask, during a trial where Mr. Carten was being prosecuted for criminal harassment.

Mr. Justice Peter Leask was seen to be clearly shaking his head back and forth and glowering at Ms. Platt in response to Ms. Platt's clandestine requests. The only logical presumption is that Ms. Platt was trying to persuade Mr. Justice Leaks to find against Mr. Carten because Mr. Carten had launched a lawsuit against her employer, Themis, in the Canada's Federal Court system.
According to sources, Ms. Platt has a history of abusing the powers conferred upon her by the government.
In recent correspondence, Mr. Carten warned Justice Lutfy that eight judges who are linked to the WaterWarCrimes lawsuit and who were in a position to blow the whistle on deep corruption in the Governments of British Columbia asnd Canada have suffered sudden deaths.

Chief Justice Lutfy Considers Scheduling Contempt Application Against Themis Program Management and Consulting Ltd.

With the reputation of the Canada's Federal Court at stake and the stench of corruption by court officers, Mr. Carten & Ms. Gibbs has asked Federal Court Chief Justice, the Honourable Alan Lutfy, (shown here to the right) to allow their contempt application to proceed against Themis Program Management and Consulting Ltd., a subsidiary of the giant American corporation, Maximus Inc.

The following is a transcription of Mr. Carten's letter to Chief Justice Lutfy and all concerned legal counsel.

January 19, 2009
Registry of the Federal Court
Thomas D'Arcy MaGee Building
90 Sparks Street,
5th floorOttawa,
K1A 0H9 Fax Number 613 943 xxxx

Attention: The Honourable Chief Justice Lutfy

Dear Mr. Justice Lutfy:

Re: Federal Court Action T-95-08
Carten & Gibbs v. HMTQ and others,

On behalf of the Plaintiffs, I am writing to suggest that you order the Plaintiffs' contempt application against Themis Program Management and Consulting Ltd., herein Themis, proceed to a hearing prior to the hearing or the Plaintiffs appeal of the decision of the prothonotary made December 1, 2009.

The Plaintiffs believe that this recommendation will, greatly assist to secure the just, most expeditious and least expensive determination of this proceeding on its merits and at the same time preserve and protect the integrity, authority and dignity of your Court. Two issues that should be your foremost consideration.

Federal Court Rule 3
Federal Court Rule 466 (c )

I had just completed the process of serving the Motion Records, for the contempt Motion to be heard January 25, 2010, when I returned to my office, opened my computer, reviewed the prothonotary's direction and realized the matter was now in your capable hands. Accordingly, the Plaintiffs and the Defendants are now in a position to proceed quickly with the contempt application.

The Motion, in our Motion Record, specifically asks for leave to proceed, in compliance with the prothonotary's direction of April 11, 2008, and in compliance with the most recent direction of January 18, 2010.

The conduct of Themis was so scandalous and so unprecedented that the reputation, integrity, authority and dignity of your Court is now at risk unless the issue is resolved. Please consider the following:

1. The contemptuous act was carried out by a senior employee of Themis, a party to Action T-95-08. The Plaintiffs do not yet know whether Themis was acting alone or in league with the other Defendants. There may have been a generalized criminal conspiracy among one or more of the Defendants, all of whom are represented by prominent legal counsel. The contempt process should assist to identify if there are any co-conspirators among the remaining Defendants.

2. The contemptuous act was carried out by a lawyer that is a stranger to this proceeding, T-95-08, but , who is a long term employee of Themis. Therefore, it is probable she was taking directions from some unidentified person or persons.

3. The contempt proceeding will elicit evidence that will be useful to the appellants on appeal to assist to prove a criminal conspiracy against them by insiders with the Governments
of British Columbia and Canada.

4. The issue goes to the integrity, dignity and authority of the Court in respect which you are the Chief Justice. One of your Officers carried out a criminal act, namely, obstruction of justice. The act was observed by at least two witnesses who have provided sworn evidence to that effect. Your Officer engaged in a criminal act that was, most probably, intended to assist a party to Federal Court Action T-95-08. The most probable suspect is her employer, Themis, which is why we are bringing the application against Themis.

5. The conduct of the Court Officer in question must be investigated. Ms. Platt has probably done this kind of thing more than once. From the perspective of the Plaintiffs, as litigants, if Ms. Platt and her unidentified colleagues were prepared to secretly persuade Mr. Justice Leask to breach his Oath of Office why would she and her colleagues not do the same with the prothonotary who rendered his decision against the Plaintiffs on December 1, 2009 and who is, by his direction of January 18. 2010, shileding them from investigation? The whole matter reeks of corruption.

6. The Plaintiffs remind the Court that a contempt application may be brought ex parte but, in this case, all parties were served and, shortly afterward, the prothonotary issued his directive of January 18, 2010. Was this another attempt to obstruct justice through secret communication to a judicial officer?

Federal Court Rule 467 (2)

7. The Plaintiffs submit that the issue merits the involvement of the Canadian Judicial Council's investigative arm that may wish to review this matter directly with Mr. Justice Leask and get his evidence before Ms. Platt and her colleagues are able to threaten Mr. Justice Leask should he blow the whistle on them. As you know, there have been some sudden deaths of other judges in a similar position who were linked to this case.

There is some speculation that Mr. Justice Leask is a Freemason and that Ms. Platt used Freemasonic signals and gestures to communicate with him. At this time, we have been unable to verify this information but, if Mr. Leask or Ms. Platt are associated with Freemasonry, then Mr. Leask may be in a very, very, difficult situation when asked to give evidence against “a sister” due to the Masonic Oath. I will leave this vexing issue in your capable hands.

Finally, on the issue of the whether or not the appeal of the decision of the prothonotary should be by way of an oral hearing or in writing, the Plaintiffs submit, with respect, that the Federal Court Rules do not confer any discretion upon the Court to order the matter be resolved solely by written submissions unless the moving party makes a motion to that effect.

All of which is respectfully submitted.

Yours very truly,

John Frederick Carten

Federal Court Chief Justice Lutfy Handed Hot Potato

We believe that an "officer" of the Federal Court committed a criminal act in a blatant attempt to obstruct justice in order to assist one of the parties to Federal Court Action T-95-08. We have two sworn affidavits that are in the court file attesting to the crime committed. A criminal act of obstruction of justice by an "Officer of the Court", if left unresolved, raises questions about the intergrity of Federal Court that go directly the authority of the Court itself.

We have advised the Court of our intention to file and serve a motion for contempt of court against Themis Program Management and Consulting Ltd. to be considered on January 25, 2010.

The following directions from Prothonotary Lafreniere indicate that the matter is now in the hands of Chief Justice Lutfy of the Federal Court of Canada. [CJ = Chief Justice]

Oral directions received from the Court: Roger Lafrenière, Esq., Prothonotary dated 18-JAN-2010 directing that further to the Order dated 11-APR-2008, no motions shall be served or accepted for filing pending disposition of the Plaintiffs' motion to appeal the Order (Lafrenière, P) 1-DEC-2009, unless leave is first sought & granted by the Court. The Registry is directed to forward the recent correspondence received from the parties to the Judicial Administrator for a determination by the CJ whether the Plaintiffs' appeal should be scheduled for an oral hearing or referred to a judge for disposition in writing placed on file on 18-JAN-2010 Confirmed in writing to the party(ies)

Carten & Gibbs Lawsuit Targets American Corporation, Maximus, Inc.

The Federal Court of Canada lawsuit launched by John Carten and Karen Gibbs, in January 2008, took another nasty turn, yesterday, with Mr. Carten and Ms. Gibbs delivering of a Motion Record to opposing legal counsel seeking leave to proceed with an application to find the Defendant, Themis Program Management and Consulting Ltd., in contempt of the Federal Court of Canada.

At issue is the bizarre conduct of Themis employee, Joanne Platt, who was witnessed engaging in some form of secret non verbal communication with Mr. Justice Peter Leask on August 22, 2008, when Mr. Carten was defending himself on a charge of criminal harassment brought against him by the Governments of Canada and British Colubmia on the basis of a fraudulent statement given to the police by a British Columbia government employee who, like Themis, is a Defendant in the Federal Court of Canada lawsuit.

Mr. Carten was eventually acquitted but the conduct of Ms. Platt remains unexamined and Themis has refused, for several months, to explain why its employee, a lawyer, attended the court proceeding and engaged in secret communications with the assigned trial judge. Witnesses saw the trial judge vigorously shaking his head at Ms. Platt who was sitting in the gallery making gestures and facial expressions but not saying anything. There are unconfirmed reports the Mr. Justice Peter Leask is a Freemason and it has been suggested by investigators that Ms. Platt may have been using secret Freemasonic signals to communicate with Justice Leask who clearly refused to co-operate in what appears to have been an attempt to fix the outcome of the prosecution.

Mr. Carten and Ms. Gibbs have accused Themis of attempted obstruction of justice, a criminal offence that carries a 14 year penalty in Canada, and they are asking the Federal Court to make a finding that Themis was in comtempt of court by using its employee, a Federal Court Officer, to attempt to manipulate the outcome of a judicial proceeding that was related to the Federal Court lawsuit.

Themis is a wholly owned Canadian subsidiary of the publicly traded American corporation, Maximus, Inc., that has had issues with the authorities in the United States involving fraud by its employees. However, this is the most serious public complaint made against an operation of Maximus, Inc. to date.

In previous correpondence, Mr. Carten had contacted legal counsel for Maximus, Inc. at its head office in the United States asking for an investigation of these matters but Maximus, Inc. has stonewalled and refused to respond to the allegations.

The Lawsuit Continues

On December 1, 2009, a prothonotary of the Federal Court dismissed the WaterWarCimes lawsuit after five applications to dismiss were filed by five different law firms. We are including Canada's Ministry of Justice and British Columbia's Ministry of the Attorney General under the phrase "law firms".

Two other large Canadian "law firms", with close linkages to the Canadian and British Columbia governments, were hoping to join the battle on behalf of various clients, all of whom work either for the Canadian or British Columbia governments, to try to get the WaterWarCrimes lawsuit thrown out of court, but, they missed the filing deadline so there were only five applications that the Court was considering or, we should say, "that the Court should have considered" because the prothonotary, improperly, considered the application by Ottawa lawyer Martin Mason, with the law firm of Gowlings, an application that was initially rejected because it filed outside the time limit set by the Court. Mr. Mason represents the Canadian Judicial Council and a group of judges who we believe were part of the judicial conspiracy against us. On one level, we were surprised the prothonotary would do this because Mr. Mason clearly did not have any status in the Court at that time. On another level, we were not surprised because there are some very influential and powerful people who are very desperate to stop our lawsuit from proceeding because it will expose their participation in the WaterWarCrimes.

We don't mind a fight. The bad guys can hire a hundred big law firms and, if we are allowed to get to court we, two average citizens, will beat them into the dirt because they have no case.

We have already destroyed eight judges (crooked lawyers in robes) who committed criminal offences in order to harm us.

Those judges thought there were protected by "the doctrine of judicial immunity". Well, did they ever learn a lesson. They are dead and "the doctrine of judicial immunity" didn't protect them one little bit, did it?

You can read about how those judges suddenly dropped dead when we exposed their criminal misconduct on the bench by visiting our web site on the page entitled "The Story - Caught in the Cross Fire"

Our allegations of the misconduct by some of the judges represented by Mr. Mason are set out on the Defendants page on our website The reader can look at the information filed under the names of Alberta Judges Barbara Romaine, Adele Kent, Sal Lovecchio and Donald Wilkins. Mr. Mason represents some other clients, such as the Canadian Judicial Council and its present and past executive directors, Norman Sabourin and Jeannnie Thomas, respectively. Mr. Maslon also represents Canada's Chief Justice, Beverly McLachlin whom we regard as an accomplice in these events.

We were fully anticipating that the prothonotary assigned to the WaterWarCrimes lawsuit would dismiss it. So, the prothonotary's decision was no surprise to us.

We had objected when the prothonotary, Mr. Roger Lafreniere, intervened and took over conduct of the case back in April, 2008, and asked for "a real judge". However, Federal Court Chief Justice, Alan Lutfy, would not permit "a real judge" to handle the case and, instead, appointed the prothonotary to be the case management judge.

We filed an appeal of the Chief Justice's Order, in May 2008, and sat back and watched to see how the prothonotray would do his job. Not surprisingly, the prothnotary delayed making a decision for 17 months and, then, dismissed our case, exactly as we anticipated he would.

The law regarding as application to dismiss a claim before a trial is not rocket science, so the case should have been decided in a matter of weeks.

Instead, we waited for 17 months. Was the delay intentional? We think so.

The prothonotary wrote in his decision that he waited until the appeal was over out of "deference" to the Federal Court of Appeal that was hearing our appeal of Chief Justice Lutfy's decision to appoint a prothonotary to handle the case.

We think that the comment is simply a face saving excuse by the prothonotary but we won't dwell on that issue here.

Incidentally, the Federal Court of Appeal dismissed our appeal and said it was not-illegal for Chief Justice Lutfy to appoint a prothonotary to a case like the WaterWarCrimes lawsuit. We disagreed with the decision but accepted it and, after it was delivered, we wrote Chief Justice Lutfy requesting he direct the prothonotary "to sh-t or get off the pot". Well, to be truthful, we were more polite than that and about two months later the prothonotary delivered his decision against us.

A prothonotary is a lawyer who is, essentially, a well trained court clerk. He may know the law better than most court clerks and he probably knows the law of procedure better than most lawyers but, on nasty cases against the government, like the WaterWarCrimes case, a prothonotary is in very bad position because he has no job security.

If the prothonotary offends the people on the inside who are trying to hide the facts of this case he could lose his job tomorrow.

So, we will be kind to prothonotary Lafreniere and just say that we understand that he was in a very tough position, his career and job were on the line and "he did the best he could in the circumstances".

On December 7, 2009, we filed a Notice of Motion appealing the decision of the prothonotary and the appeal will be heard by a single judge of the Federal Court.

Today, January 7, 2010, we filed a 262 page Motion Record to follow up on that appeal and delivered copies to opposing legal counsel. In that Motion Record there is documentary evidence proving some very serious criminal misconduct by one or more of the Defendants in the WaterWarCrimes lawsuit.

The Governments of Canada and British Columbia are deathly afraid the Canadian people will learn the truth about the political corruption behind the WaterWarCrimes.

All opposing legal counsel are so concerned about possible media coverage for this case that that they have approached the Federal Court asking that the Appellants be required to argue their appeal in writing so that no one can listen to or report on the legal arguments presented to the Court.

Things Appear To Be Heating Up

Things started to heat up today.

Yesterday, the Federal Court in Ottawa spent one hour looking at our web site. Whoever was visiting was very curious because they looked at 28 pages of material.

Then on, Tues., Jan. 5 at 8AM, John Carten appeared on The Lendman News Hour a US National Radio Program that specializes in public affairs with host Steve Lendman.

Mr. Carten and Mr. Lendman spent an hour discussing the events related to the WaterWarCrimes in Canada.

Immediately after the appearance on US Radio, the Office of the Chief Justice of the Federal Court of Canada called for Mr. Carten who was unavailable to take the call due to other commitments.

That same afternoon, Canada's Prime Minister announced he would be appearing on National television.

Are these events related?

Are these actions by the Chief Justice and the Prime Minister related to the information sent to every Canadian Senator and every member of theHouse of Comons concerning the fraudulent mis-representation by the Deputy Minister of Justice and Deputy Attorney General for Canada, Mr. John Sims, Q.C?

We may never know but, one thing we know for sure is that the Government of Canada has been covering up something, very big related to water issues, for a very long time.

Co-incidence - Parliament in Canada Suspended December 30 2009

On December 25, 2009, we sent the following e-mial to every Senator and every Member of the House of Commons in Canada.

On December 30, 2009, Prime Minister Harper proroged (i.e. suspended) Parliament which prevents any of the Senators or Members from asking any questions about our allegation of fraudulent mis-representation of the facts in the Federal Court by the Deputy Minister of Justice, Mr. John Sims, Q.C.

We ask the reader, Is the suspension of Parliament a co-incidence?

Dear Senator /Member

We invite you to visit our Web Ssite

Learn why eight Canadian judges linked to one lawsuit suddenly dropped dead.

What is Rob Nicholson, Canada's Minister of Justice, hiding?

Why did Canada's Deputy Minister of Justice, John Sims, Q.C, make fraudulent submissions to the Federal Court?

Who or what is killing the chief witnesses?


Two Canadian citizens and their families were put under surveillance, targeted, threatened with death and financially ruined by the Governments of Canada and British Columbia because they were helping the American company, Sun Belt Water Inc. and its investors, who were the victims of fraud by Canadian Governments, in a lawsuit that threatened to expose a criminal conspiracy that took place at the highest levels of government in Canada by insiders who had expected to profit from a monopoly over bulk water exports from Canada to the United States.

Their story, "Caught in the Crossfire", posted at is a chilling reminder that politicians and insiders with Canadian governments will use the judiciary, the courts, private law firms, and the bureaucracy to target and attempt to destroy private citizens when they deem it in their personal interests to do so.

A newspaper editor in Vancouver stated,

"This is the most explosive scandal in the political history of Canada".

There are eight sudden judicial deaths linked to this case.

ln the case of each judge, there was motive for murder.

Two Canadian Prime Ministers were forced out of office by this case.

Will Stephen Harper be Prime Minister number three?

Prime Minister Paul Martin ran out of the back door of a cabinet meeting room at the Grand Hotel in Kelowna in 2004 because of this case.

One BC Premier, Glen Clark, was forced out of Office by this case.

One Chief Justice of Canada, Antonio Lamer, resigned over this case and then died after his involvement in the water war crimes was exposed.

Two BC Chief Justices resigned over this case.

The Chief Judge of the Provincial Court of BC, Mr. Hugh Stansfield, died on May 7, 2009 a mere three weeks after Mr. Carten exposed his crimes and predicted that such exposure "would destroy his career and might kill him".

Why did BC Premier Gordon Campbell appoint a criminal to be the Chief Judge of his Provincial Court? Recently acquired internal BC Government documents, now posted online at our website, prove the BC Government intentionally broke the Canada US Free Trade Agreement and the GATT in an attempt top confer a bulk water export monopoly in political insiders.
There is a Canadian media black out on this case. The Canadian and BC Governments are afraid of this case.

The RCMP refused to investigate the offshore accounts linked to this case.

The BC Government and eight government lawyers involved in perjury and fraud on the court are defendants in this case.

The RCMP refused to investigate allegations of perjury by BC Government lawyers.

An RCMP inspector acknowledged the operation of a judicial mafia in Canada.

The BC Government brought a bogus and malicious criminal prosecution against Mr. Carten because of this case.

The Canadian Federal Court stalled this case for over 16 months.

The case is moving ahead and if permitted to proceed several judges, lawyers and politicians may go to jail
