On this occasion of my 100th article for Collective Evolution since I started back in April, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank my readers for their emails of inquiry, commentary, encouragement and appreciation. Although it’s getting difficult, I still try to respond personally to each one, because I have gained a lot of insight and inspiration from them. As well, I believe that the work of community-building, which is a mandate of Collective Evolution that I strongly believe in, occurs mainly as a result of the quality of our one-on-one interactions with each other.
Convicted Church officials issue legal notice and threaten police action against ITCCS Field Secretary Kevin Annett – International Sheriffs and Observers to be mobilized
Vancouver and Brussels:
Two United Church officials who were lawfully convicted of concealing the death of children in Canadian “Indian residential schools” have launched a legal action to publicly silence Kevin Annett and his quarter-century campaign to expose and prosecute Genocide in Canada.
Foster Freed and Phil Spencer, both Vancouver Island clergymen, issued a “Cease and Desist” legal notice against Kevin today through their law firm Derpak, White and Spencer in Vancouver. The notice falsely and without evidence accuses Kevin of sending to both of them a poster accusing them of crimes against humanity, and demands that he stop any public mention of these crimes. The notice states that “the RCMP have opened a file” against Kevin and will be interrogating him.
Both Freed and Spencer were among the thirty defendants who in February, 2013 were lawfully convicted of complicity in Crimes against Humanity in the first common law court case brought against Canada and its churches, the Vatican and the Crown of England for Genocide. A standing arrest warrant exists against Freed and Spencer, and Nanaimo-based Common Law Sheriffs were in the process of enforcing that warrant when Freed and Spencer moved against Kevin.
“I’m regarding their Notice as a pre-emptive response to take the heat off themselves, a panicked reaction which the United Church is so good at” commented Kevin Annett today. “In fact, their Notice is a blatant assault on me of the sort their church has been inflicting since 1995.”
In response, the ITCCS has issued the following notice to Freed and Spencer and to their lawyers:
October 8, 2018 2220 hrs. GMT

Be advised that our office has been notified of your aggressive and unprovoked actions towards our North American Field Secretary, Rev. Kevin Annett, who has our complete confidence and legal protection.
