The Edmonton Journal (30 March 1981) concluded an article on Lester Pearson's cover-up for Soviet spy John Watkins:
E. D. Ward-Harris, Editor of the Victoria Times-Colonist, reviewing Chapman Pincher's remarkable book, Their Trade is Treachery, in the 30 May 1981 issue, says that the mind 'boggles' at the extent of Soviet penetration in high government circles, and adds: 'Why, after reading this book it wouldn't surprise me to learn that some Western president or prime minister had been recruited by the KGB in his youth and was taking his orders from Moscow Centre through a handy controller. It wouldn't surprise me at all.'
A remaining question is why Pearson and the Liberal hierarchy decided to cover up for Watkins.
Was it simply because Pearson and Watkins were huge personal friends?'
If so, this meant that Pearson's own priorities came ahead of those of Canadians in general would lead to many more exposures and create shattering embarrassment for the Liberal bureaucracy?'
That would explain a lot of things of recent years, wouldn't it! We read in Scripture: 'Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.' The fog of treason and apathy is slowly lifting. The facts and reality are beginning to emerge. May this paper make a modest contribution to a national awakening.
This paper was first published by the Canadian League of Rights (Flesherton Ontario) in 1982 and is now available from the Canadian Intelligence Service Publications (High River Alberta). The Canadian Intelligence Service Publications, edited by Ron and Wanda Gostick, is a monthly report dealing with every aspect of the world revolutionary movement, and particularly as it pertains to Canada and the United States. Throughout the years they have provided much more documentation on some issues only tangentially referred to here.
1. Throne of the antiChrist, pp. 218-9. The report of MacKenzie King addressing the Canadian Parliament is from an unidentified newspaper or journal account that I found among the papers of Charles Pyper, War Correspondent of the Toronto Telegram, when I purchased them from Hugh Kane in the mid-seventies; Mr. Kane was then President of MacMillan of Canada. The account may have been written by Mr. Pyper himself. The copy of Gouzenko's Fall of a Titan, that I also purchased at the same time, has the following inscription: 'To C.B. Pyper - my best friend - in appreciation of your magnificent efforts to defend freedom of man everywhere - with respect and admiration, Igor Gouzenko, Nov. 7, 55.'
