  1. Here is what Lord Christopher Monckton had to say about Agenda 21. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Hyl9YzJsQg

  2. Dear Mr. Lilley,
    I can tell you that Agenda 21 policies are being advocated by Ryerson’s School of Urban and Regional Planning (and likely many other land use planning schools across the country), my professional association – the Ontario Professional Planners institute – and are embedded throughout the land use legislative and regulatory framework in Ontario. The Orwellian term being used “sustainable development” can be defined as – public sector rationing of the basic necessities of life (food, energy, housing). It is a bizarre set of concepts that, when implemented, result in the public sector doing less with more, the public sector redistributing wealth from the competitive, productive class to the rent seeking class and the incremental, but systemic destruction of our common-law rights, specifically private property rights and the right to due process. Landowners are often afraid to speak out given the level of demonization that they have experienced.

    I have been fighting these incredibly destructive policies since 2004, although I only just found out about Agenda 21 this year and intend to blog about it in further detail starting this month. Thank you for bringing this to the public’s attention.

    Agenda 21 is actively under way in many Canadian communities under the guise of “sustainable Development” – usually at the local level where municipal or regional councils virtually dictate land use legislation. Of course this is the beachhead incursion of UN agenda 21 soviet styled regulating because the Canadian constitution puts local governments in charge of regulating private real property and chattels. As for property rights there is little or nothing in Canadian statute or constitution to stop the government from arbitrarily depreciating your property with restrictive regulating, and they can do so without having to render compensation for value loss or seizure of deed for regulatory infraction – you better believe Moe Strong had this in mind when he crafted this UN blue print to eliminate private property ownership in this nation.

    The “sustainability advisory board” in my community are following Agenda 21’s policy on local land use/zoning to the letter and have already made by-laws that regulate how much water you may use on your garden or how you develop your property, they have killed a public road and private land development project because there may be endangered species environment to “sustain” on the property. – Brian in your town, there is now a bylaw that prevents landowners from cutting down trees – take the time to see where that initiative came from and you will discover the Agenda 21 council in your own municipal level.

    Now I know government-worshippers will say this is nothing new – that government has done this for a long time, nothing to worry about here. But that is a flat earth argument. We HAD full and near total private property rights in Canada prior to the late 50s and early 1960s when most provincial governments, in a seemingly uncoordinated action, changed their Property acts to repeal the near absolute ownership rights upheld by common law to the new statist “bundle of privileges” registered deed holders now have to settle for. Since that time you really don’t own your property, you sort of co-own it with some governing body that holds claim against it in perpetuity. A complete reversal of the common property right of the individual we enjoyed for 800 years.

    Strangling statism is the new form of despotism and it starts when they put arbitrary claim on all personal property.

    Bill Elder, well said.

    Agenda 21 is sort of sneaking up on everybody and the vast majority of people have no idea and much of what they do hear about parts of it here and there from their local politicians sounds like a great idea, but they have no knowledge of the end game in play here.

    Excellent post, Brian. My own city of Surrey, BC isn’t a direct member but is influenced through Metro Vancouver which is a member.

    UN Agenda 21 and ICLEI involve wide-ranging initiatives using environmentalism as a motivating theme to meddle with and control how people live their lives. In the shorter term this has implications for private property rights, carbon taxes, “sustainability”, waste management, the “education” of children and youth and so on. They touch almost everything and give the UN (via ICLEI) a reach down into the affairs of local governments (going around provincial and federal governments). The UN and one-world government nutters are gaining huge leverage towards implementing their global nanny-state dreams.

    It’s a real threat to our liberty, autonomy and sovereignty and needs to stopped. Keep shining a light on it.
