Complaint against CHRC: Evidence
leads to the USA, where the RCMP can’t follow up
According to an article
in todays National Post, the RCMP will not criminally charge the CHRC
with theft of an innocent woman’s internet connection because the
evidence leads to an American website, which is outside the jurisdiction
of the RCMP.
While Marc Lemire filed
the criminal complaint, he has yet to be notified of any decision
taken by the RCMP in this matter, although Lemire was receiving regular
updates from Sgt. Stéphane Turgeon, who is the “OPS NCO” in charge of
the “Integrated Technological Crime Unit” of the RCMP.
During the course of the investigation, it appears that the RCMP
conducted interviews with five individuals, most of whom were CHRC
The allegation made by Lemire is that “Dean Steacy and/or other Commission employees willfully connected to the
wireless access point owned by Nelly Hechme, in order to hide their online
identity. Then impersonating
Mrs. Hechme, via her internet connection, browsed to Stormfront.Org
website and printed documents that were submitted as evidence of material
fact before the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal.”
Lemire’s allegation further submits that this
violated four sections of the Criminal Code of Canada, in particular:
in relation to data in contravention of Section
430 (1.1) (c)(d) of the Criminal Code.
use of a computer in contravention of Section
342.1 (1) (a)(b) of the Criminal Code.
of telecommunication service in contravention of Section
326 (1)(b) of the Criminal Code.
of Communications in contravention of Section
184 (1) of the Criminal Code.
The facts in this case are overwhelming against the
CHRC and concern their spying operations and entrapment program via
internet service providers in Canada and websites in the United States of
To fully understand how much evidence there is
against the CHRC, here is a brief summary of the case Marc Lemire put
forward to the RCMP.
The CHRC used
a pseudonym on Stormfront.org called “Jadewarr” to post
messages and to print posting.
When the CHRC
was using the pseudonym “Jadewarr” on December 8, 2006 at
3:29pm, they had the IP address of: 184.108.40.206, and printed out
material to be used in a Tribunal hearing days later.
The CHRC tried
everything in their power to not allow Marc Lemire to call any
evidence on either Jadewarr, or the WiFi hacking allegations. They
attempted to block every single attempt he made.
The CHRC lost on all counts, including at the Federal Court
representative of Bell Canada testified that on Dec 8, 2006, the
IP address of 220.127.116.11 was actually owned by a women who
lived down the street from the CHRC’s offices in Ottawa and had
no connection to the CHRC at all.
2006, the woman in question had an unsecured wireless access
point, which was in range of the CHRC’s Ottawa office at 344
The decision by the RCMP to not proceed, is certainly
not due to lack of evidence, but actually driven by cross-border issues
and jurisdiction. The
CHRC has not been found innocent or fully exonerated,
rather the National Post article sums it up as “the RCMP .. do not have proof her account was hacked, nor proof that it
was not, and to investigate further would involve going after technical
data from a website based in the United States, stormfront.org, which they
said is not possible.”
Commissioner of Canada is still investigating this case, and their
investigation is looking at a burden of proof that is on a “balance
of probabilities”. Criminal
investigations require a much higher level of proof, which is “beyond
a reasonable doubt.”. As
Marc Lemire has recently stated “on
a balance of probabilities, the evidence appears to be very solid that the
CHRC has engaged in the theft of an innocents woman’s internet
A decision by the Privacy Commissioner of Canada is
still outstanding. As well,
the Justice Committee in the House of Commons has expressed interest in
reviewing the shady investigation practices of the CHRC.
Committee investigation brought forward by St. Catharines’
Conservative MP Rick Dykstra, would “review
the mandate and operations of the Commission” and “review
the Commission's application and interpretation of section 13 of the Act”.
For those who love facts and solid evidence, here is
a more detailed view of the evidence in the criminal complaint against the
Canadian Human Rights Commission.

Reached by phone last night, Ms. Hechme, 26, told the National Post

investigators, and has never accessed a Web site as Jadewarr. She
said that in the relevant period in 2006 she
did have a Bell Sympatico account with a wireless connection that
was not password controlled, meaning anyone within range of her
