DEAR HEAD OF NATION http://thevoiceless.blogspot.com
CANADIAN SPONSORSHIP CABINET DOCUMENTS TALK:
ALL OF THESE DOCUMENTS HAVE BEEN SCANNED INTO MY BLOG http://thevoiceless.blogspot.com AS LETTER NUMBER 766 FOR CANADIAN VOTERS INFORMATION.
THESE DOCUMENTS ARE THE FIRST RELEASE OF CABINET DOCUMENTS RELEASED UNDER THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT TO ME WHICH OUTLINE THE CRIMINAL INVOLVEMENT OF PRIME MINISTER PAUL MARTIN AND PRIME MINISTER CHRETIEN AND RALPH GOODALE AND OTHER GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS.
I SHALL EXPECT THE ROYAL CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE TO BEGIN LAYING CRIMINAL CHARGES IMMEDIATELY.
CANADIANS REQUIRE NOTHING LESS THAN LIFE IN JAIL FOR THEM JEOPARDIZING THE UNITY OF CANADA WITH THERE CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES.
THE FIRST RELEASE OF DOCUMENTS TO ME WAS 3475 PAGES WITH ABOUT 21 ITEMS PER PAGE WITH THE NAMES OF RECIPIENTS OF CHEQUES FROM THE GOVERNMENT AND THE AMOUNTS OF THE CHEQUES. I SHALL EXPECT THR ROYAL CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE TO LAY CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST THE RECIPIENTS OF THESE CHEQUES AS THEY CONSTITUTE THEFT OF CANADIAN TAX PAYERS MONEY DISBURSED WITHOUT LEGISLATIVE AUTHORITY.
IT IS MY OPINION THAT 500 BILLION-- THE PRESENT DEFICIT OF CANADA --WAS STOLEN FROM TAXPAYERS WITH MOST OF THE MONEY ENDING UP IN OFFSHORE BANKS LIKE THE UNION BANK OF SWITZERLAND AND ALL OF THE MAJOR BANKS OF CANADA THAT ARE OFFSHORE BANKS THAT LAUNDER STOLEN MONEY LIKE THE CANADIAN BANK OF COMMERCE DID IN THE ENRON SCANDAL.
THE THEFT IS CONTINUING AND I REFER YOU TO THE LETTER HEREIN DATED AUGUST 16,2002 TO RALPH E. GOODALE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE TREASURY BOARD LUCIENNE ROBILLARD WHICH STATES IN THE THIRD LAST PARAGRAPH
“ FINALLY, WITH RESPECT TO YOUR QUESTION ON PROCUREMENT CONTRACTS VERSUS CONTRIBUTIONS, I UNDERSTAND THAT FURTHER TO DISCUSSIONS WITH YOUR OFFICIALS, THERE IS NOW SUPPORT FOR THE RECOMMENDATION TO ESTABLISH A CONTRIBUTION PROGRAM FOR SPONSORSHIP ACTIVITIES.” THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT POLICY OF SPONSORSHIP THEFT OF TAXPAYERS MONEY BY KICKBACKS IS TO CONTINUE TO BE THE POLICY OF THE LIBERAL GOVERNMENT.
THE THEFT CONTINUES WITH PRIME MINISTER PAUL MARTIN NOT HAVING PAID ANY CANADIAN TAXES FOR 25 YEARS BY CANADA STEAMSHIP LINES AND ITS AFFILIATED COMPANIES THAT ARE PRESENTLY HAVING TANKERS BUILT IN CHINA WITH ITS STOLEN TAXPAYERS MONEY.
THIS LEGISLATIVE CRIMINALITY OF PRIME MINISTER PAUL MARTIN IN THE CABINET AS FINANCE MINISTER WAS STRENGTHENED BY HIS MAKING AMENDMENTS TO THE CANADA INCOME TAX ACT TO ALLOW THE CONTINUATION OF ALLOWING OFFSHORE HAVENS FROM CANADIAN TAXATION ARE THE REASONS CANADA IS 500 BILLION IN DEBT. ALL OF THE FUNDS HAVING BEEN STOLEN FROM TAXPAYERS.
THIS IS PART OF THE SECRET UNDERGROUND GOVERNMENT OF CANADA.
I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO OBTAINING THE OTHER 45 BOXES OF CABINET DOCUMENTS WITH REGARD TO THE SPONSORSHIP SCANDAL THAT PRIME MINISTER PAUL MARTIN SAID TO MAKE FULL DISCLOSURE OF EITHER IN DOCUMENT FORM OR DISK FORM FOR MY COMPUTER.
I SHALL EXPECT JUDGE GOMERY TO CONTINUE HIS INVESTIGATION OF WITNESSES AS REVEALED IN THE DOCUMENTS HEREIN AND IN THE 45 BOXES OF CABINET DOCUMENTS REFERRED TO HEREIN.
THE MEDIA IS INVITED TO REPORT ON THESE DOCUMENTS.
I SHALL EXPECT ALL OF THE OFFSHORE BANK ACCOUNTS AND THE ASSETS SET OUT THEREIN TO BE FROZEN PENDING ALL INVESTIGATIONS. CANADA IS NOTHING BUT A BIG ENRON AND PARMALAT FRAUDULENT THEFT FROM TAXPAYERS.
PEACE

HAROLD C FUNK TO: 192 HEADS OF NATIONS. LETTER NO: 766 E-MAIL ON.

BACKGROUND
Reference to my memorandum of June 8, 1995 on the noted subject, the Treasury Board Secretariat has provided the following information resulting from the above-mentioned meeting.
1. Presently, no report will be released publicly on expenditure levels for Advertising and Public Opinion Research.
2. The Secretary to Treasury Board will be presenting the reports on all government procurement to the Standing Committee on Government Operations on June 20th, 1995. At that time, the reports on Advertising and Public
Opinion Research will be highlighted to the Committee as Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) has exceeded all expectations in regards to coordination of projects and meeting expenditure levels.
3. The data which identifies firms with more than 25 % of business volume have been removed from the reports. The reports will identify all funs with associated business volume.
4. Ministers of the Board have recommended a low key approach when it is decided to release the reports publicly.

MEMORANDUM TO THE MINISTER
SUBJECT
Aide Memoirc to Treasury Board
PURPOSE
PWGSC released the guidelines as approved by Cabinet, on contracting for Communications, Public Opinion Research. and Advertising on May 11 th, 1994. On July 6th, 1994, less than. two months- after the issuance of the guideline, Treasury Board ministers approved the new contracting policy, T.B. #821823.
As per the contracting policy, PWGSC provides the Treasury Board Secretariat with a quarterly report on contracting activities for Advertising and Research.
Expenditures in advertising in Fiscal year 1992/93 under the previous administration were $117,174 million. In the first year of the current administration (1993/94) expenditures were reduced to $40,294 million and in the most recent fiscal year (1994/95), expenditures were down to $36,344 million.
In regards to public opinion research, the last fiscal year 'of the previous administration was $9,266 million with many. projects- not accounted for. . Had they used our definition, it is estimated that the figure would have been in the $12 to $14 million dollar range. This administration has brought the expenditures down to $4,028 million. In the most recent fiscal year; we are at $7,129 million and I point out that this figure includes all research as per the new definition.
Canada

Jun 8,95 14:30 no o1o p.o2
(35)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In regards to one or more contractors dominating the award- of those contracts (greater than 25%) Treasury Board will review. what remedial course of action is possible if this occurs: This is defined in the contracting policy,:
Two firms on advertising initiatives have contracts in excess of 25 %.. Thefirms are 9.3 million, and, 8 million. 'In regards to the account is shared with another firm as per the competitive process,
namely, Groupe Everest of. Montreal. In regards to they have part of the. Tourism Canda account and it would not be prudent to split that initiative.
Note that the reduction of advertising expenditures from 117 million to 38 million makes it much more- probable that one firm will have more than 25% of the total business. This is the result of two. or three large departmental accounts, i.e. Tourism, Finance and Health Canada.
REMMMENDATIQN
The reports on expenditures for advertising and public. opinion research should be released publicly.
Treasury Board should not identify publicly the mimes of firms that have more than 25% of the business. This should be dealt with internally_

SUBJECT
AIDE-MIlMOIRE TO TREASURY BOARD
BACKGROUD
PWGSC RELEASED THE GUIDELINES AS APPROVED BY CABINET, ON CONTRACTING FOR COMMUNICATIONS, PUBLIC OPINION RESEARCH AND ADVERTISING ON MAY 11TH, 1994. ON JULY 6TH, 1994, LESS THAN TWO MONTHS AFTER THE ISSUANCE OF THE GUIDELINE, TREASURY BOARD MINISTERS APPROVED THE NEW CONTRACTING POLICY, T.B. # 821823.
AS PER THE CONTRACTING POLICY, PWGSC PROVIDES THE TREASURY BOARD SECRETARIAT WITH A QUARTERLY REPORT ON CONTRACTING ACTIVITIES FOR ADVERTISING AND RESEARCH.
EXPENDITURES IN ADVERTISING IN FISCAL YEAR 1992/93 UNDER THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION WERE $117,174 MILLION. IN THE FIRST YEAR OF THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION (1993194) EXPENDITURES WERE REDUCED TO $40,294 MILLION AND IN THE MOST RECENT FISCAL YEAR (1994/95), EXPENDITURES WERE DOWN TO $38,344 MILLION.
IN REGARDS TO PUBLIC OPINION RESEARCH, THE LAST FISCAL YEAR OF THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION WAS $9,266 MILLION WITH MANY PROJECTS NOT ACCOUNTED FOR. HAD THEY USED OUR DEFINITION, IT IS ESTIMATED THAT THE FIGURE WOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE $12 TO $14 MILLION DOLLAR RANGE. THIS ADMINISTRATION HAS BROUGHT THE EXPENDITURES DOWN TO $4,028 MILLION. IN THE MOST RECENT FISCAL YEAR, WE ARE AT $7,129 MILLION AND I POINT OUT THAT THIS FIGURE INCLUDES ALL RESEARCH AS PER THE NEW DEFINITION.
IN REGARDS TO ONE OR MORE CONTRACTORS DOMINATING THE AWARDS OF THESE CONTRACTS (GREATER THAN 25%) TREASURY BOARD WILL REVIEW WHAT REMEDIAL COURSE OF ACTION IS POSSIBLE IF THIS OCCURS. THIS IS DEFINED IN THE CONTRACTING POLICY.
TWO FIRMS ON ADVERTISING INITIATIVES HAVE CONTRACTS IN EXCESS OF 25%. THE FIRMS ARE , 9.3 MILLION, AND 8 MILLION. IN REGARDS TO THE ACCOUNT IS SHARED WITH ANOTHER FIRM AS PER THE COMPETITIVE
PROCESS, NAMELY, GROUPE EVEREST OF MONTREAL. IN REGARDS TO .ac
THEY HAVE PART OF THE TOURISM CANADA ACCOUNT AND IT WOULD NOT BE PRUDENT TO SPLIT THAT INITIATIVE.
NOTE THAT THE REDUCTION OF ADVERTISING EXPENDITURES FROM 117 MILLION TO 38 MILLION MAKES IT MUCH MORE PROBABLE THAT ONE FIRM WILL HAVE MORE THAN 25% OF THE TOTAL BUSINESS. THIS IS THE RESULT OF TWO OR THREE LARGE DEPARTMENTAL ACCOUNTS, I.E. TOURISM, FINANCE AND HEALTH CANADA.
RECOMMENDATION
THE REPORTS ON EXPENDITURES FOR ADVERTISING AND PUBLIC OPINION RESEARCH SHOULD BE RELEASED PUBLICLY.
TREASURY BOARD SHOULD NOT IDENTIFY PUBLICLY THE NAMES OF FIRMS THAT HAVE MORE THAN 25% OF THE BUSINESS. THIS SHOULD BE DEALT WITH INTERNALLY

OMNIBUS SUBMISSION - CANADIAN _UNITY
REMARKS
Canada continues to face challenges with respect to national unity and the continuing evolution of the federation. The Government of Canada has consistently maintained that Canadian Unity will be preserved and enhanced through good government. In that regard, it has embarked on an initiative to_ ensure that the benefits derived from the federation are well understood by, supporting research, planning and communications activities designed to ensure that Canadians are well informed. This will provide background for the decisions that will be taken in context of the debate leading up to and including the proposed referendum in Quebec. This initiative will involve supporting activities of the.-Privy Council Office, the department of. Canadian Heritage and Public Works and Government Services Canada.
This, approach assumes that a referendum will be held in the fall of 1995. Should the referendum be held later than the end of 1995, it may be necessary to revisit the approach proposed herein.
Privy Council Office -
The approach of the government in Quebec has had an impact on the federal-provincial relations climate. The management of these more difficult relations has significantly increased the workload of the Privy Council Office, particularly Intergovernmental Affairs.
On November 4, 1993, the Honourable Marcel Massd was appointed President of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs and Minister responsible for Pubic Service Renewal. In order to support the Minister in his various responsibilities, PCO required additional resources for new and enhanced departmental functions ( T.B. 821150, February 17, 1994). The resources were mainly allocated to the following areas of activity: Government Renewal Secretariat; Intergovernmental Affairs; Program Review; Communications and Consultations; provision of additional secretariat, support to the Minister in his responsibilities related to Public Service Renewal and Administration.
On February 22, 1995, the Prime Minister announced the appointment of the Honourable Lueienne Robillard as Minister responsible for the. federal campaign in the upcoming Quebec referendum. The Minister is responsible for the development of the government's position on the full range of issues raised in the context of the referendum debate in Quebec and related unity concerns in all other regions of the federation.
(32)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Privy Council Office will support Minister Robillard in this capacity. It will also provide enhanced support and assistance to the Prime Minister and Minister Massd on all federal policy and communications matters relating to federal provincial relations and the management of the federation. -Additional resources in the amount of $5M are required to support the new and enhanced initiatives related to the promotion of Canadian Unity during the pre-referendum and referendum period. These resources will support the strong cadre 'of senior. public servants required to oversee the planning, research and development of the position of the federal government and the preparation of analytical papers on the potential impact of the current political situation.on all regions of Canada, interest groups, etc.
The Policy Development and Constitutional Affairs Secretariat will enhance its capacity to address the increasingly complex government-wide strategic policy and planning issues related to the evolution of the federation and the conduct of federal-provincial relations activities during the pre-referendum and referendum period. _ It will also provide in~iepth analysis and background materials on related issues and provide analysis and commentary on the increasing numbers of academic studies on the discussions. These activities will support' the Government's efforts to reinforce the value of the evolving federation.
The Strategic Planning and Liaison Division will work with non-government organizations in developing and promoting Canadian Unity both within Quebec and elsewhere in Canada in support of the Minister and the Prime Minister in their outreach activities.
The Communications Division will be responsible for the development and implementation of the federal communications strategy, media monitoring, analysis, speech-writing, editing, translation and graphic services, distribution services and administrative. operations. This may include the requirement to establish a strengthened regional presence to deal expediently with media matters and advertising. They will also work with other concerned departments and agencies to coordinate all communications initiatives that impact on national unity.
Public Works and Government Services Canada
Under the direction of the Privy Council Office, Public Works and Government Services Canada will provide support in the conduct of all public opinion research and advertising in support of this initiative.
Under the guidance of the Privy Council Office, the Advertising and Public Opinion Research Sector (APORS) will coordinate the tasks of the five (5) agencies assigned to this file. They will ensure that the creative services and/or "media buy" conform with the established Treasury Board policy and guidelines and that they provide added value to the Crown. In addition, they will ensure that all communications services, including the advertising and public opinion research are competitive as required and subsequently that appropriate contracts are issued.

services de coordination des communications (DGSCC), A L'exception des services d'approvisionnement, de Travaux publics et Services gouvemementaux Canada (TPSGC) au Bureau d'information du Canada (BIC).
Ma proposition. comporte le transfert des fonctions de communications suivantes au BIC : programmes de publicite et de gestion de projets; programmes d'acces public lies a ledition; programmes d'acces public lies aux demandes de renseignements; activates de communications strateglques; services de soutien connexes. Cette consolidation comporterait le transfert d'un budget de quelque
60 millions de dollars et d'environ 150 employes. Le montant precis fait l'objet de discussions actives entre les deux ministeres et sera confirme dans une presentation au Conseil du Tr6sor. .
TPSGC conserveralt la fonction d'approvisaonnenient de la DGSCC, qui ne ferait pas partie du transfert. La separation des. activates -d'approvisionnement et de communications renforcerait lintegrite des. processus contractual et , d'approvisionnement du gvuyemement du Canada, qul sont la responsabilite de TPSGC.
Le transfert permettrait au BIC de mieux coordonner et harmoniser les services et initiatives de communications gouvemementales. De plus, une unite consoladee aiderait le Secretariat des communications et des consultations du Bureau .du Conseil prive a mieux remplir son r6le aupres du Comite du Cabinet charge des communications gouvernementales, et m'aiderait egalement dans mes fonctions de president de ce comite.

Dear Colleague:
I understand that discussions on the future structure of the sponsorship program are planned for the next Treasury Board meeting of August 7, 2002. I will not be able to attend and would ask that you delay these discussions to a future meeting.
I believe that additional analysis is needed before engaging in further discussions.
I am not convinced at this time, that the Grants and Contributions mechanisms used for other programs are the best solution to the future delivery of sponsorships.
I hope that you will agree to postpone discussions until the required analysis is completed.
Yours sincerely,

Dear Colleague:
Thank you for your letter dated August 6, 2002, concerning recommendations to the Prime Minister on strengthening the administrative regime for sponsorsbips, advertising and public opinion research activities.
I regret that you were unable to participate at the August 7, 2002, meeting of the Treasury Board. We had a constructive discussion with our colleagues and they expressed strong support for the recommendations.
I am very encouraged by the views expressed in your letter as they are in large measure supportive of the three reviews that have been completed and the recommendations developed, including: '
• Sponsorship activities must achieve more than advertising or promotion objectives; they must also be supported by program information delivered to Canadians through a variety of vehicles.
• The objectives for the Sponsorship program need to be clearly articulated and encompass both the importance of reaching out to Canadians in all parts of the country and providing them with relevant information about federal programs and services.
• By contributing to small, medium and large-sized not-for-profit events as venues to reach Canadians, the government would also support the themes of inclusion and cohesion from the Speech from the Throne.
• A robust and transparent regime for measuring, monitoring, audit, evaluation and reporting system is essential in terms of effective stewardship and public accountability at a program

and individual transaction level. As recommended, any contribution program requires a strong management and accountability regime. As well, post campaign evaluations and follow-up should be a central feature of the management regime associated with advertising_.
• The policy framework must be strengthened by demonstrating that advertising and public opinion research are clearly part of mainstream contracting activities, by eliminating Appendix Q and all provisions that may contribute to a perception of interference in contractor selection processes. and by adding to the Contracting Policy a number of new provisions as set out in the recommendations. Given the set of Changes proposed, we do not see a rationale for maintaining the 25 percent rule on market dominance. The re-structuring of advertising contracts, as proposed is aimed at achieving more competition to ensure value for money.
The recommendations make a very, clear distinction between advertising and sponsorship activities and their associated funding mechanisms and eligible recipients.
• The Treasury Board Transfer Payment Policy states that payments to recipients are conditional on performance and achievement as set out in the contractual terms and conditions for a contribution agreement. All funds must be accounted for. The Transfer Payment Policv provides the necessary scope to set out consequences for cases of nonperformance. Eligible costs need to be clearly set out in developing the structure for a contribution program. Support for ongoing core funding is not being proposed.
For your convenience. I am enclosing a copy of the summary recommendations in each of the three areas of activity that were discussed. with Ministers at the last meeting of the Treasury Board.
I share your view that there is a more active role to be played by the Cabinet Committee on Government Communications and Communication Canada with respect to the strategic direction, content, and quality of our advertising activities. The proposed recommendations provide for specific mechanisms so this role can be better supported.
I trust you are also aware that the work of engaging the private sector. has been launched by our officials and that there is a good alignment between the recommendations developed and industry views. We must build on a foundation grounded in best practices and lessons learned from the public and private sectors. This can be done in the near term through discussions with industry and by officials following through on commitments to engage industry on the detailed design of specific measures to implement the recommendations.
Finally, with respect to your question on procurement contracts versus contributions, 1 understand that further to discussions with your officials, there is now support for the recommendation to establish a contribution program for sponsorship activities.
I would like to extend my appreciation to your officials who have worked diligently and contributed to this demanding and important undertaking.

I look forward to discussions with you as I finalize the recommendations to the Prime Minister on how best to achieve value for money in each of the three areas of activity.
Sincerely.
