Cop Tied to Cartels?


Royal Canadian Mounted Police

Cameron Ortis, 47, the civilian director of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) intelligence unit, was charged last week with 3 counts of breaching the Security Information Act and two criminal code offenses. Basically, he has been charged with attempting to sell national secrets. 


The charges go all the way back to 2015 and allege that Cameron attempted to sell high level secrets to an unnamed foreign entity. 

The bad news is that no one is really quite sure just who that foreign entity was, some speculate it was China, others believe it to be drug cartels. 

Canada is having some relationship issues with China currently yet, the drug cartel idea seems to be most fitting in this case. Cameron does happen to have a background in East Asian affairs and, according to his Linkedin profile, speaks Mandarin. So, it would not be far fetched to believe he was selling intel to China. 

I know how it sounds however, Canada is big on BlackBerry smartphones, Vancouver happens to host a pretty seedy company tasked with upgrading the BlackBerry smartphones with unhackable encrypted communications for drug cartel bosses in Mexico, the United States, and in Australia. 

Odd right?

Naturally, this upgrading for the cartels has been happening without the consent and knowledge of well, the makers of BlackBerry, which is even more odd and outlandish. 

To make matters worse this has the potential to be an embarrassment for the Canadian security establishment, because of her intelligence relationships with, the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

Cameron had “Top Secret” clearance, which means that he also had access not only to the files of Canada’s 20 intelligence-gathering agencies, but also to those of the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. 

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Commissioner of the RCMP, Brenda Lucki are trying to work with her allies to ensure that nothing super significant was sold. 

The rumors are running pretty rampant in both the US and in Canada about just what Cameron had access to, who he sold it to and why, some even suggest that the FBI had been the ones to alert Canadian Authorities about Cameron but US officials have neither confirmed nor denied that.

560 Wildfires Rage

British Columbia – Canada

Currently 114 large wild fires are burning throughout the US. Some of the largest and most fierce are raging out of control in California.


In Colorado we are experiencing one of our own worst fire seasons as well. Each day the daylight is haze filled and at around 5pm the smoke moving across the entire US from all of our fires blocks the sun.

I read last night that our beloved neighbors to the north are experiencing something upwards of 560 Wildfires raging out of control in the Canadian Province of British Columbia.

It is so bad that the Province declared a state of emergency. This is also the second year in a row that the Province of Canada has faced out of control, raging wildfires, and the second state of emergency in 15 years that has been declared.

It was reported that last year the state of emergency in BC was in place for something like 10 weeks.

The Canadian Province of British Columbia usually see roughly 2,000 wildfires a year however most are contained within a 24-hour period.

The Province has requested help from Canada’s Federal Government to help battle the fires that are raging out of control.

Sadly, this is news we are beginning to see other nations and countries face worldwide.
