Subject: Why All the Unpaid Fines At BCSC, We know some Answers..

Wednesday, 22 November 2017


In a recent statement from BC NDP’s finance minster Carole James regarding the massive amount of unpaid fines owed to the BC Securities Commission Ms. James questions why the vast number of unpaid fines have gone uncollected by the BCSC.

These comment can be seen here in a Vancouver Sun article
Hundreds Of Millions In Fines Issued By BC Securities Commission Go Unpaid

Of course we know why these fines have gone unpaid, at least some of them anyway. Even thought the BCSC has rendered its judgements and filed them with BC Supreme Court it still must take the accused to court to seize their assets.
 While the BCSC claims that this is very hard due to the fact that the money is hidden and/or spent we know that this also is not entirely true.

One of the key reasons the BC Securities Commission lets these fines go unpaid is that the BC Securities Commission and many of its staff including former Head of Criminal Enforcement Ms. Teresa Mitchell-Banks operate in a criminal manner with no adherence to their own rule nor the rule of law.

We have demonstrated this in many posts, articles and countless letters to public officials, here is a little on that subject from The Chicago Daily Herald.
Does the Rule of Law not Apply To the Financial Markets? What Happened to Civil Rights and Due Process?

The BC Securities Commission does not protect the markets, it is a weaponized agency whose purpose is give the impression of a tough on crime agency for the public while behind the back of the public it assists a vast criminal network that is looting our province on a grand scale. It does not actually want its actions looked at in a court of law. Even if it is the BC Supreme Court where cases are often fixed by this same vast criminal network, its very risky as the evidence against them is mounting in a wide variety of cases.

Maybe its time to ask why the BCSC owns Securities in the BC Investment Management Corporation, the BCIMC in turn owns hundreds if not thousands of financial securities, many tied in to British Columbia.
 This can be seen here.
BCSC Owns BCIMC Securities, Does BCSC Know Definition of Words Like Conflict Of Interest?

Any real digging into the BC Securities Commission will reveal a criminal network potentially spanning the globe. This is not mere conjecture, there are many case like the cases that have been demonstrated in this post.

The connection between BCIMC and BCSC is organized crime at its best, not only is the BCSC a criminal agency with no regard for the rule of law the BCIMC through its vast holding of companies is very likely worse.
 One of the BCIMC’s many crimes is to burn down the home of Jack English and Family and steal his $200 Million dollar ocean front property near Tofino BC.

The BC Securities Commission will never address these crimes because it is a major part of them as many have experienced.  The proposed new National Regulator will be no better, its simply designed to hide fraud and perpetuate it.

My name is Christopher Burke and the BCSC has found me guilty of trading without a prospectus yet the BCSC cannot take me to court for the multi million dollar fine it has levied against me not just because I do not have the money and never did, but because how it came to its judgement was through an utterly criminal process. I am not guilty, I was actually a victim. The same can be said for many others who had to deal with the BCSC.

Flawed would be too kind to describe their investigations and indicate this was not a purposeful undertaking when as has been demonstrated on my blog and many others the BCSC is a criminal organization. Christy Clark and Michael DeJong were aware and did nothing but aid and abet. Ms. James I sincerely hope you and Mr. Horgan plan on restoring the rule of law in this province because justice is coming with or without you. We the people will no longer tolerate these crimes against us.

 The BCSC is a Sham.

Christopher Burke


Thanks Christopher for your candid thoughts – we just wonder if the so-called  investigative reporters for the respective Vancouver Sun and the Vancouver Province have the tenacity to really get to the bottom of the shambles at the BCSC and other regulators across Canada.   Dig deep – there are dozens of stories that are there for your readers that will shed light on the real corruption in the racket known as the Canadian Securities markets!   These stories are horrendous – and each and every one of them are unique.  Are we all wrong?    This isn’t a matter of us whining and crying over sour milk – our allegations are many and include evidence manipulation, excessive fines, entrapment, Charter of Rights violations, fraud, abuse of power, incompetent staff, etc – and the list goes on.

What we wouldn’t do to have these relationships finally drained!  The people of BC and Canada deserve far greater!



  1. I am very glad that Christopher has been working on this crucial problem so diligently. I have heard that the Salt Spring Island DRIFTWOOD has ran an article on the idea that Minister Carole James is ordering the BC SC to work on restitution to cheated banking and investment brokerage clients. If anyone has information on just what the scoop is on this, please reply.
    My take is that nothing can be done until the Standing Committee on Banking [FINA Committee of the House of Commons] agrees to overhaul the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada [FCAC] so that all of its personnel are trained in the principles of common law of contract, and all the provisions of the Criminal Code of Canada that prohibit deceptive dealing of any kind. The disgraceful performance of Lucie Tedesco and Richard Bilodeau on May 28, 2018 before the FINA hearing, where they offered contradictory figures on how much has been recouped for victims, and where they used a term “miss-selling” as a euphemism for the crimes that were documented at the June 4, 2017 FINA hearing, yet they claimed that “miss-selling” is a term not used under the the Bank Act – yet continued to use the term, after admitting that it is meaningless from the perspective of upholding rule of law.
    Canadians need to organize to communicate directly and personally with each MP, to make sure that they are on top of this, and that they engage in real discourse on everything necessary to replace neoliberal fraud with genuine good faith business practices at all levels in the administration of banking and investment in Canada.
