Canadian Security and Policy Institute Sold to Fortune 500 Company with IDF and US Military Ties

Fortune 500 corporation with US-military and IDF ties buys a “security and policy institute” at the University of Ottawa in Canada’s capital


The University of Ottawa was a reputable institution of higher learning in Canada’s capital city, before it was taken-over in 2008 by former federal politician and former Canadian Ambassador to the UN Allan Rock.

Following his appointment, Rock immediately proceeded to bring in all his own people to run the place in support of his announced pet projects to support US-colonial “globalization” and to legitimize the state of Israel, in the face of growing international condemnation of Israel’s on-going war crimes in Palestine.

There was a complete overhaul of the executive team, and of the Board of Governors (BOG). The new VP-Academic, Francois Houle, disappeared shortly after the start of his mandate. The whole executive team left for one reason or another. The Chair of the BOG left, to be replaced by a retired federal senior civil servant who had been an underling of the then federal minister Allan Rock, and so on.

Rock has gone so far as to receive public condemnations from both the Canadian Civil Liberties Association and the Canadian Association of University Teachers for administrative interferences with the student-based Israel Apartheid Week. He created a questionable joint law graduate degree with an Israeli university, for which there was no apparent or expressed need. He has been pressing for a “School of Government” without consulting the academic community. He accepts large anonymous donations for his pet programs. And so on.

Since Rock’s appointment, damaging public relations fiascoes have followed, one after the other, somewhat like in Rock’s former political career in which a colleague from his own party said that he has “shit magnets in his pockets”.

The most recent matter illustrating Rock’s ability to continually harm the institution’s reputation has been the subject of several harsh editorial critiques in the national print media: Rock prejudicially and publicly dismissed and tarred the entire university hockey team, thereby wrecking student athlete careers, prior to any criminal charges being laid against two of the team’s members.


An illustrative example of how Rock operates, is shown by student reactions to his “School of Government” brainchild, as follows (LINK).

On January 29, 2013, Sarah Tayyem, President, Public & International Affairs Association, Representative of Students from the Public & International Affairs Program, writes (in part):

“Lack of student input into the consultation process … The consulting group did not include students in their process, and so this report does not address or cover student concerns. … There was no student input solicited for the original consultative document, and there has been a lack of effort on the part of the University to solicit feedback from students even though we are at the heart of this proposal. GSPIA students would appreciate a consultation session, especially as we stand to be strongly affected by the proposed SoG.”

Similarly, on March 4, 2013, the president of the Association of Professors of the University of Ottawa (APUO), Professor Christian Rouillard, wrote THIS damning letter to Allan Rock (in part):

I am writing to you in regards to the projected School of Government. Listed as one of the initiatives on the horizon in the plan Destination 20/20, where it is introduced as «a premier centre for governance and public-policy research» (…), this project remains a mystery to most members of our university community.

About a year ago, at the Ottawa Mayor’s Breakfast: Ottawa Business Journal and Ottawa Chamber of Commerce, you  explained to the members of the business community present that … Yet, one year later, as attested by the feedback we received from many members who are themselves part of «the exceptional cluster of expertise that is already at the  University», i.e. faculty conducting research in the areas of governance, public administration, international affairs,  security and human rights, everyone on campus it seems, has been kept in the dark. No relevant information on the projected school has been formally shared by the administration. Not a word on it is to be found in the minutes of the  Senate meetings held in  the  2012-2013 academic year (…). Similarly, not a word on it is to be found in the minutes  of the Board of governors meetings held in the 2012-2013 academic year …

Such public letters are unprecedented at the University of Ottawa.


On September 8, 2014, the Allan Rock’s university put out THIS previously unannounced press release:

MEDIA ADVISORY: Launch of the Security and Policy Institute of Professional Development at the University of Ottawa

OTTAWA, September 8, 2014  —  The University of Ottawa invites members of the media to attend the launch of the Security and Policy Institute of Professional Development. The new institute will offer a unique professional development program for decision-makers working in the public, para-public and private sectors whose responsibilities require them to pay particular attention to national and international security issues.

The courses offered by the Institute will focus on sharing knowledge and best practices to help students take more informed decisions.

In honour of the Institute’s launch, internationally renowned intelligence expert George Friedman will present the first in a series of in-depth lectures on emerging security issues given by world-leading specialists.

Serge Blais, Director of the Centre for Continuing Education at the University of Ottawa, will be on hand to answer questions about this new professional development program.

WHAT: Lecture and inauguration of the new Security and Policy Institute of Professional Development
WHEN: Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at 12:30 p.m.
WHERE: Ballroom of the Chateau Laurier, 1 Rideau Street, Ottawa

It is interesting to note that the press release announces an event to be held off-campus, that a university communications person will answer questions rather than Rock himself, that there is no mention of the funding source of this new institute, and that the guest speaker is a US military intelligence expert (more below).

THIS university webpage informs us that “Symantec is the main sponsor for the launch of the Security and Policy Institute of professional development.”

Symantec is a US Fortune 500 corporation, which deals in software/internet “security” (including “cyber war”), and which has strong US military and IDF ties.

Symantec’s nine-member Board of Directors (LINK) includes one “Major General and Commander, United States Air Force (retired)”.

Symantec has strong corporate ties with Israel and the Israel Defense Force (IDF). Symantec’s country manager for Israel is Shmulik Angel. His web bio at Symentec states (LINK):

Previously, he served in the Israeli air force for 25 years. He retired from service as a Colonel and continues to perform active reserve duty in the air force and in the Ministry of Defense. Mr. Angel holds BSc. degree in Industrial Engineering and an MBA from Ben Gurion University, Israel.

The Mossad‘s cyber weapon “Stuxnet” is said to be “the world’s first cyber-weapon of geopolitical significance”. It is believed to have been developed in collaboration with the US military, and it is linked to Symantec, as per THIS media report.


Nothing could be a better illustration of Allan Rock’s zeal to make the University of Ottawa an instrument to dissolve Canada’s sovereignty and to serve the US-Israeli military complex.

Now let us examine Rock’s proposed inaugural lecture to launch his institute, given by “internationally renowned intelligence expert George Friedman”. Who is George Friedman?

George Friedman is the Chairman of the US global intelligence firm Stratfor (LINK).

Stratfor is dubbed a “shadow CIA” firm, and Wikileaks has shown that 13 Canadian government agencies have high-cost subscriptions to Stratfor (LINK). “National Defence paid Stratfor $78,225 in 2011, $80,175 in 2012 and $82,200” for 2013.

In addition to obtaining actual contracts for secret services, George Friedman also spews out public “intelligence” reports, which are unabashed propaganda, about every conflict of concern to the US-Israel military. These “reports”, masked as objective “intelligence” serve to legitimize the global empire’s every intervention, including Israel’s so-called “self-defence” against the surrounding Arab aggressors who do not accept Israel’s existence and who pose a “long-term threat to its survival”.

Allan Rock’s star speaker is an Israeli apologist, invited just days after Israel’s recent bloody massacre in Gaza. And this invited guest will deliver a “series of in-depth lectures on emerging security issue” to Canada’s captive minds.

The Emperor will be pleased to learn that President Rock did not show leadership by condemning Israeli war crimes, or the massacre in Gaza. Quite the opposite, their man has stifled such discussion and replaces it with US-Israel propaganda.

Welcome to “Allan Rock’s university”, in Canada’s capital city.

    “He created a questionable joint law graduate degree with an Israeli university.”

    —-Unless Canadian Voters are smart enough and get ride of Stephen Harper, what is going on now at The University of Ottawa is a kind of follow the leader. Since Harper kisses the Boots of the Zionists” others are simply following him.

    —-Former NYC Mayor Michael Rubens Bloomberg who change the law to serve 3 years term, instead of 2 years, has done many similar things too. Just to mention a few examples, Bloomberg picked IS rael’s (IS IS) University out of so many USA Universities bids to partner with Corrnell University for its New state-of-the-art Campus for Scientific Projects.

    —-Bloomberg, Abe of ADL and other Zionists managed to convince the “Corrupt USA Politicians” to send our Chiefs of Police, Police Officers, and other government personnel in similar jobs to IS rael (IS IS) to be trained by IDF.

    —-Not only it was a waste of USA Taxpayers $, but they also send us back “Well-Trained Monsters” just like IDF.

    Canadian politicians are truly Israeli bum suckers, period. This is another country that will prosecute you if you criticize anything about Israel. Harper, Mulclair and Trudeau are all puppets and will do anything to please the Khazars and Khazars are not semites, guaranteed. Alan Rock president of the University of Ottawa used to be the Justice minister in the Chretien government. He is like a rabid dog and foams at the mouth if you criticize anything Khazar. The business elite here want to make money, what better way than to make it with the devil. Always good doing business with the uncivilized barbarians of Israel. I won’t say anything so long as you pay me. Israelis kill Palestinians, Canadians kill the Natives, my my who would have guessed how much we have in common.

    Canada, invaded by the zio with the last crushing blow while the sheeple watch. game over.

    yup, lots dont get it, but a LOT of what Icke says is absolutely correct. another favorite “Jordan Maxwell” tells a whole lot of truth that -sounds- crazy, but these so called leaders ARE that crazy and deviate.

  5. captain obvious  September 10, 2014 at 9:54 am

    first off.. SCREW SYMANTEC, their NORTON antivirus security garbage will slow your computer ridiculously and God only knows what kind of backdoors it’ll open and to who. I ditched Norton and mcAffee way back in 2001 because they’re JUNK. mcAfee bought NeoTrace and shut it down, we used to be able to use NeoTrace to see geographically where an IP# originated, it was very good for helping spot liars and trolls.
    NEXT UP, people who write viruses try to defeat the BIG TWO just mentioned, first, for being popular, plus the way they slow your PC it might take a while for it to react, if it reacts at all. I dont and wont use anything coming from the big two, hopefully I’ll be ditching MicroSoft too, yeah bill gates WAS looking in his trousers when he named his company, and the perpetual ob$olescence of flawed OS’s is ridiculous, “your browser is outdated please upgrade” aka buy all new and spend a ton cuz we said so!
    now they’re buying colleges and installing control freaks?!

    Icke is a saint. People accuse him of being kooky or worse, but his message is very simple Those who sit on top of the money pile, banksters and ‘philanthropists’ et al, are not us. They’re just blood-sucking demons and their human agents.
