The Canadian Establishment and Prime Minister Trudeau Aim at Ousting Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland

Yves here. For those of you outside Canada, the recently appointed foreign minister Chrystia Freeland’s personal history has become a cause celebre. Freeland is fiercely anti-Russian and has attributed it as based on her grandfather having fled Ukraine in 1939 to escape persecution by Stalin.

In reality, Freeland’s grandfather was a high level Nazi propagandist. As John Helmer, who worked for Freeland when she was at the Globe & Mail, reported in January:

Chrystia Freeland (lead image), appointed last week to be the new Canadian Foreign Minister, claims that her maternal family were the Ukrainian victims of Russian persecution, who fled their home in 1939, after Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin agreed on a non-aggression pact and the division of Poland between Germany and the Soviet Union. She claims her mother was born in a camp for refugees before finding safe haven in Alberta, Canada. Freeland is lying.

The records now being opened by the Polish government in Warsaw reveal that Freeland’s maternal grandfather Michael (Mikhailo) Chomiak was a Nazi collaborator from the beginning to the end of the war. He was given a powerful post, money, home and car by the German Army in Cracow, then the capital of the German administration of the Galician region. His principal job was editor in chief and publisher of a newspaper the Nazis created. His printing plant and other assets had been stolen from a Jewish newspaper publisher, who was then sent to die in the Belzec concentration camp. During the German Army’s winning phase of the war, Chomiak celebrated in print the Wehrmacht’s “success” at killing thousands of US Army troops. As the German Army was forced into retreat by the Soviet counter-offensive, Chomiak was taken by the Germans to Vienna, where he continued to publish his Nazi propaganda, at the same time informing for the Germans on other Ukrainians. They included fellow Galician Stepan Bandera, whose racism against Russians Freeland has celebrated in print, and whom the current regime in Kiev has turned into a national hero.

Just before Vienna fell to the Soviet forces in March 1945, Chomiak evacuated with the German Army into Germany, ending up near Munich at Bad Worishofen. On September 2, 1946, when Freeland says her mother was born in a refugee camp, she was actually in a well-known spa resort for wealthy Bavarians. The US Army then controlled that part of Germany; they operated an Army hospital at Bad Worishofen and accommodated Chomiak at a spa hotel. US Army records have yet to reveal what the Americans learned about Chomiak’s war record, and how he was employed by US Army Intelligence, after he had switched from the Wehrmacht. It took Chomiak another two years before the government in Ottawa allowed the family to enter Canada.

The reason the Polish Government is now investigating Freeland is that Chomiak’s wartime record not only victimized Galician Jews, but also the Polish citizens of Cracow. In a salute to Freeland as a “great friend of Poland” by the Polish Embassy in Ottawa last week, Warsaw officials now believe a mistake was made.

And what was the linchpin information for this account? Chomiak’s papers, which were found and included in research by John-Paul Himka, an expert in the Holocaust in Ukraine and a former professor of history at the University of Alberts. Himka is also Freeland’s uncle.

Freeland could have gone the route of saying she had no idea about her grandfather’s background or otherwise distancing herself, since many people have horrid relatives and in most cases are not responsible for their actions. But that would expose Freeland to the risk of further digging exposing that she had known about her true family history for some time and continued to misrepresent it. So instead, she has enlisted allies who have shamelessly played the “evil Rooskies” card, in a way that makes the anti-Trump campaign look tame. But the Globe & Mail got to the bottom of the matter, reporting on March 7 that Freeland knew her grandfather was editor of Nazi newspaper for over two decades. Yet Freeland’s office issued a denial a mere day before.

Yet that revelation only pushed Freeland’s backers in the Canadian media into a higher register of screechiness, with a second article attempting to right Freeland’s listing reputation, repeatedly calling well-documented accounts of Freeland’s family history a “hoax”. As the lawyers say, “If the facts are on your side, pound the facts. If the law is on your side, pound the law . If neither are on your side, pound the table.”

Since Julius Caesar, Shakespeare’s version, expressed mortal surprise that his best friend Brutus would put in the knife, there have been no end of political surprises at whose hand turns out to be on the assassin’s knife.  In the case of the hit in January on then-Canadian Foreign Minister Stéphane Dion, it is clear to the Canadian foreign policy establishment, members acknowledge, that it was Chrystia Freeland’s hand. Before, she was a junior trade minister; after, she took Dion’s portfolio as foreign minister.

Eight weeks later, it’s becoming clear to Canadian sources that the hand on the knife that is now sticking in Freeland is not the Russian one she is reporting to the Canadian press. That is sticking into her full frontally, and it is less than mortal. Her screams for help have brought a great many screamers to her side.

It’s the knife in Freeland’s back that is more lethal. That, it is now revealed in Ottawa, is coming from a quiet group of foreign policy advisors around Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. They aren’t motivated by revenge on Dion’s behalf as much as concern for their Canada — the policy-making and money-making apparatus on which their future livelihoods depend. In that Canada they don’t want Freeland to remain foreign minister or become prime minister. For one thing, they say, she’s a liar and cannot be trusted by anyone. In December 2014, as he prepared his run at toppling Stephen Harper, then the Conservative Party  Prime Minister, Trudeau assembled a council of advisors on foreign policy. Some were former military officers; some ex-diplomats; others were academics, think-tankers, lawyers. Some were what are known in the Berlin Chancellery, in the German language, as “shoes”. That’s individuals who are so far up the fundaments of their patrons, all you can see of them is their shoes.

Here is the original list of Trudeau’s advisors. Freeland wasn’t one of them. Ten months after Catherine McKenna’s (below, left) appointment to this council, when  Trudeau defeated Harper in the election, she was promoted to the cabinet as Minister of the Environment and Climate Change. She remains a backer of Freeland, and has been promoting her through media columns bylined by her husband, Scott Gilmore; he is a one-time Canadian government agent in the Indonesian war against East Timor.

Left: Minister McKenna with Prime Minister Trudeau; right, Ambassador Kinsman speaking for Trudeau.

Jeremy Kinsman (above, right) was the senior diplomat in the group; he has served as a counselor in the Canadian Embassy in Washington; then as ambassador in Moscow, Rome, London, and Brussels (European Union).   Few Canadian foreign policy analysts are as acute as Kinsman  at detecting political conspiracies aimed at Canada’s national interests from so many corners of the hostile world; nor at  distinguishing the genuine conspiracies from the fakes.

Last week he said: “If the unearthing of a conspiracy reveals evidence of one, it is great investigative stuff. But if it doesn’t convince, it remains a theory.” Last week too, Kinsman was keeping an open book on Freeland’s future. He acknowledged that she is now under attack. “I’m not a hysteric about Russia’s alleged threat. But I think their [expletive deleted] has to be called out as vigorously as anybody else’s.”

Kinsman also acknowledges there is a higher goal than looking for evidence of conspiracy theories in the press,   and that’s getting to the truth of what Freeland is doing with Canada’s foreign policy. “On a deeper and more important level [this] is an issue of vast importance today, the search for truth — which for many reasons is running into purpose-built obstacles in an increasingly adversarial political climate between Russia and other countries. The deteriorated climate especially affects comment and reporting these days between Ukraine and Russia and between the US and Russia. It is aggravated by kompromat operations being levelled with gathering animosity.”

Last week Kinsman was ready to give Freeland the benefit of the doubt. “I consider that the evidence is not supportive.”

This week Kinsman went public in Ottawa with more conviction. On the surface he and other sources from the Canadian foreign affairs ministry are charging someone with a mistake in ousting Dion, and then giving him a dual post that is unprecedented – ambassador to both the European Union and Germany at the same time.  Read the report from The Hill Times, a management owned, small circulation publication for Ottawa insiders, which on March 15 published this account of the “really unnecessary mistake” Trudeau and Freeland have made.

The phrase and the judgement came from Kinsman to the Hill Times reporter. But Kinsman carefully avoided mentioning Freeland’s role in Dion’s ouster, and her role in consigning him to the empty space between Brussels and Berlin.  “How can you have two ambassadors? You can’t,” Kinsman was quoted as adding.

One of his friends, a former ambassador,  sought anonymity in order to say the Dion appointment was “foolish” and “bad judgement”. Whose bad judgement do these men mean? And is the bad judgement limited to jobs for the boy, or does it extend to policy for the country? “Wacko” is the assessment of what is happening,  as reported by The Hill Times from Ferry de Kerckhove (right), who has been a Canadian diplomat in Iran and NATO, as well as Canada’s ambassador to three of the most important Muslim states – Pakistan (1998-2001), Indonesia (2001-2003) and Egypt (2008-2011).

So far it isn’t clear whether wacko was the judgement of these veterans for the performance of the first foreign policy advisor Trudeau appointed to his inner office. That was Roland Paris, an academic hawk on war with Russia, whose engagement was announced in January 2016. Paris turned out to be a lightning rod; he lasted six months before he announced he was “honoured to have helped out. Now back to my day job.”   Canadian media coverage of the judgement on Paris was limited to the remark in a Toronto newspaper that “Mr. Paris did not give a reason for leaving.”

Paris continues to tweet in support of Freeland, and for Canadian war against Russia.

To offset Paris’s excesses and replace a retiring Canadian spymaster turned national security advisor, Trudeau’s staff decided in May of last year to pick Daniel Jean, a foreign ministry veteran to be the new national security advisor.   Daniel is still at his post, and has made almost no news. He appeared publicly after Freeland was sworn in, but only to explain what he and the rest of the Canadian government didn’t know about US President Donald Trump’s travel ban from Muslim countries.

According to more than one Canadian source, in putting wasps in the beehive Trudeau has created policy confusion and vulnerability for the policy-making regulars in the ministries and uniformed forces, as well as the veterans, establishment men, and power brokers like Kinsman. For them Freeland has been a rival they lacked the resources and the conviction to fight. They also calculated that for as long as Hillary Clinton looked likely to win the US presidential election, it was foolhardy for them to challenge Freeland directly. For details of the opportunity Freeland expected from Clinton last November, read this.

Then came the cold wind for Trudeau in January. A Toronto Star poll showed  the worst numbers for Trudeau since his election day in October 2015.  His approval rating was 48%, down 3 points from December 2016; down 10 points from November. His disapproval rating jumped over the same interval from 32% to 42%.



Canadian politicians and analysts, as well as US observers south of the border, are asking whether  Freeland is biding her time to challenge Trudeau for the prime ministry? The answer is in the political wind,  Canadian sources say. They point to Wednesday’s opinion piece in the Toronto Star, the country’s largest circulation newspaper, in which national affairs columnist Thomas Walkom assesses which way the wind is blowing for Freeland.

Walkom isn’t sure, so he reports that the Russian version of Freeland may be true, and Freeland’s version may be a lie. “Not all news that seems to favour Russia is false. The world is a complicated place… Nothing illustrates this as neatly as the Freeland affair. The foreign affairs minister, a former journalist, is widely respected. She is smart and capable. By contrast, Putin is viewed as a villain controlling an army of evil minions. Anything that supports the villain by casting aspersions on this nice woman’s treasured grandfather couldn’t possibly be true. Except, of course, when it is. This time, the minions weren’t lying. That too can happen.”

In the British and American constitutional democracies the issue which obliges members of parliament and ministers to resign their office is an act of public turpitude, like lying. Canadian sources believe there is an active Ottawa faction which aims to oust Freeland for just that.  For them, as well as for the personal advisors of Trudeau seeking to conserve his power against the dwindling polls, this is the value of the story of Freeland’s grandfather; his wartime involvement in the ethnic cleansing (mass murder) of Jews, Poles and Russians from the Ukraine; in Freeland’s involvement in the current war against the Russian-speakers of eastern Ukraine; and in her lying.

Freeland’s small lie about meeting President Vladimir Putin last November, and talking to him at length in Russian, attracted no attention when Freeland said it publicly last January. “I’ve spoken with the top guy in Russia quite recently,” Freeland claimed on Canadian state radio on January 13.  “We spoke in Russian and we had quite a long conversation.”  The Kremlin records no such conversation took place; a spokesman for the president added:  “Vladimir Putin did not have a meeting with Freeland.” For more details, click to open.

The lie about Grandfather Michael Chomiak is much bigger. The telltale delay between Freeland’s  appointment on January 10; first reports of her lying about Chomiak which started on January 19; and Freeland’s press conference statement on March 6 reflects an Ottawa operation to cut Freeland down. Freeland says the operation is a covert Russian one. “There were efforts on the Russian side,” she said in a scripted remark,  “to destabilize Western democracies, and I think it shouldn’t come as a surprise if these same efforts were used against Canada,”

There are Canadians in a position to know who believe there is an operation against Freeland; that it started in Trudeau’s office; and that it is picking up momentum in the foreign policy establishment.

These sources believe Freeland got wind of the operation, and decided her best defence was a counterattack on Russia.  If her defence fails, she goes. If she survives, her Ukrainian story will be a disqualification for higher office. Either way, Trudeau can calculate he wins.

      Assertions have a larger social context in which meaning is constructed. It is not pedantic to note, therefore, that a “true” assertion can be propagandistic. For instance, in 2015 Hillary made comments about Russian built weapons in Ukraine proving the Russians were invading Ukraine. She left out the fact that this true assertion meant nothing since Russian made weapons are common in Ukraine.

  1. Paul Greenwood

    CIA and MI6 exfiltrated so many Ukrainian Nazis to Canada, US, Australia and UK ready for the planned 1954 War. That is why 14th Waffen-SS Galician kept their weapons in Rimini before being slipped with new ID into safe harbours.

    MI6 and CIA were slipping couriers into to Bandera forces inside Ukraine into mid-1950s with Kim Philby betraying them

      I’m unaware of the plan too but I’m inclined to believe it existed. Kim Philby seemed to manage to erase lotsa stuff that the former British Nazis seemed to be deep into… just sayin’.

  2. vidimi

    canada would be wise to remember that, although it covers a massive landmass, it can be completely KO’d by four or five well-placed nukes. and i say that out of concern for my family, who remain there.

    It’s not the crime, it’s the cover-up. Too bad for Stephane Dion, who is a competent and intelligent minister, but with a retiring manner and a strong French accent – now twice fired as cabinet minister due to liars using trumped-up fakery.

    Yes Freeland’s grandfather was a Nazi collaborator – he and his family were protected by the retreating Nazi armies and installed in a spa for debriefing by US military intelligence, and then given priority immigrant status to Canada. There are many such stories – and such people in North America. Not Freeland’s fault – but her lies to try and hide this truth are. Begone, liar!

    1. adrena

      Freeland is a warmonger. The sooner she goes the better. Stephane Dion, for all his faults, is a true diplomat who favored peaceful negotiations with the Russians. However, in this topsy-turvy world, promoting peaceful negotiations with the Russians is considered an evil act.

      John Helmer is anything but a Putin fan – his site gets DDoS’d regularly for reporting on faked privatization schemes and other oligarch tricks.
      Go to – a mirror site.

    One of the silver linings of the right-wing nationalist turn in Poland is that animosity towards the Kiev government has gotten very high, and documented chartings of the Nazi lineages of the neocon’s friends will be more available to us. Doug Henwood’s recent interview with Mark Ames is good on this and the Russophobia regression generally.

  6. jfleni

    Both Canadians and Americans deserve much better than their current mistakes, but unhappily, the present deep draughts of “buffoon juice” are only making things worse.

  7. Sally

    The real question is why Prime Minister Trudea appointed Freeland to the job in the first place? It would seem that he is just another neo con liberal puppet of the global elite hiding behind identity politics. After all, her anti Russian views were not in doubt, even if her grandfathers history was not known.

    Trudea wanted her in this very sensitive job as he continues the globalist war on Putin by backing neo nazis in Ukrane, and pushes open boarder policies for Canada. I feel sorry for the people of Canada. They have been duped by this man.

    1. Rosario

      Yeah, Trudeau is Canada’s Obama. Similar hope in the beginning, and similar disillusion in the year following (for those paying enough attention). Seems like there is a neoliberal formula here. Get some handsome/charming person up there with floaty language and voters are on lock.

    2. adrena

      That’s not it. Freeland got the job because of her trade credentials. She had just managed to successfully sign a trade agreement with the Europeans when Trump came to power. Your dear leader managed to scare the bejeezus out of Trudeau with his threat to renegotiate NAFTA and his “America First” in all matters trade grandstanding.

    3. Anonymous

      Her gender might have played a role for Trudeau, after all he has been making a big deal out of being performatively feminist.

  8. JEHR

    I have read much about the Ukraine which was invaded by the Nazis then taken over by the Russian communists. Many horrible things took place under both regimes. Maybe the sins of the grandfather should not be visited on the following generations.

    1. c1ue

      You’re leaving out the “Galician” division of the SS.
      That’s hardly the hallmark of a restive population downtrodden under the Nazi boot heel.
      Sadly, the real world is far more complicated than Nazis = bad and Russkies = bad.

  9. Altandmain

    Yeah as a Canadian, this Freeland needs to go ASAP. She is little more than a neoconservative attack dog.

    We do not need the worst aspects of neoconservative politics here. Trudeau has been facing popularity problems because he hasn’t delivered on the economy. He’s like Canada’s Obama.

        1. Edward

          I was also thinking of the mayor of Toronto. I hope Canada can elect someone like Sanders too.

      1. River

        Well Kevin O’Leary of Dragon’s Den is making a run at the Conservative leadership….so maybe.

      2. Anthony Noel

        Actually, he could be, look up Kevin O’Leary, a right wing blowhard media personality who has questionable real world business success who is currently riding a hard wave of populist anger from Alberta (i.e. Canadian Texas) and likes to make lots of claims about how the system is trying to screw him out of power.

    “Freeland is fiercely anti-Russian and has attributed it as based on her grandfather having fled Ukraine in 1939 to escape persecution by Stalin.”

    Well, there’s this. Stalin was Georgian, spoke Russian as a second language, with a heavy accent. Stalin’s real name was Dzhugashvili, which he changed partly because it was too obviously Georgian. This man is obviously not Russian.

    It saddens me to see historically illiterate attribution being accepted so easily. The USSR was a multi-cultural empire with both Ukrainians and Russians having outsized influence.
    Gorbachev is from a Ukrainian-Russian family, Brezhnev had Ukrainian nationality, and Khrushchev thought of himself as Ukrainian.

    Hard to claim that Soviet persecution is equivalent to Russian persecution when half the leaders of the USSR were at least part Ukrainian, and Stalin was a foreigner in Moscow.

    1. oho

      random trivia: Stalin also spoke Russian w/a rural accent (aka “hick”–sorry to be politically incorrect).

    2. wilroncanada

      Canada has the third largest population of Ukrainians, after Ukraine and Soviet Union/Russia. The first wave of immigrant Ukrainians to Canada was in the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. Most were from Galicia and Bukovina. They went mostly to the prairies as farmers. Many were interned early in WWI as aliens from the Austro-Hungarian empire. About 35,000 arrived in the years post WWII until the late 1950s, 10,000 more in the 70s and 80s, and an additional 25,000 between 2004 and 2013. There could have been more nazis, neonazis or their descendents among any of these three later waves. More than 100 thousand speak Ukrainian.
      The post WWII arrivals gravitated mostly to the cities. Some were very militantly anti-Russian, and formed right-wing Ukrainian-Canadian organizations which challenged and sometimes replaced earlier ethnic based cultural groups. Interestingly, in 2005 the Canadian Parliament offered a specific apology to the Ukrainians for the WWI internship, but not the Slavs, Poles, Bulgarians,Czechs, and Romanians also interned.
      A lot of Ukrainian-Canadians have taken powerful positions in Canadian society, including one Governor-General along with several provincial Lieutenant Governors, members of parliament, business leaders, professors, writers,and even hockey players, notably Dale Hawerchuk and Wayne Gretsky.
      The point is, Ukrainian-Canadians are a large, influential constituency. Freeland will get a lot of undeserved support.

  11. susan the other

    Christia Freeland is Canada’s Vicky Nuland. They both get marching orders from someone else.

  12. Kalen

    What bothers them most in Ottawa is that the Polish Government, a member of EU and NATO completely repudiated Freeland version as a falsehood.

    In fact the precise history of Cracow [a capital of so-called GG, “General Government” set up by Nazi in the 25% of pre-war territory of Poland] during WWII and before with thousands of testimonies of witnesses German/Nazis, Poles, Jewish and others including Ukrainians as well as tens of thousands German and Polish documents at that time were preserved with all the names, pictures, films, audio and other ID proving documents in the Polish Academy of Sciences Historical Institute Archives and Institute of National Remembrance (IPN).

    There is no doubt about identity of Freeland grandfather as a Nazi collaborator so were hundreds of thousands of other Ukrainians who contributed to Nazi war crimes as allies of Hitler or committed them by themselves. While Russians have their own sources there is no need even to refer to them but only to Polish, German and US archives to know the truth she knew well as she spoke about it while visiting Ukraine.

    1. Irredeemable Deplorable

      The reasons Canadian politicians (pretty much all, left, right and centrist) support the neo-con “war Against Russia” are:

      -large Ukrainian immigrant population in Canada, you can only get their vote by being rabidly anti-Russian, all political Party’s here play this card constantly (there is also a not as large Polish population, whose concerns get ignored, but most are anti-russian anyway)

      -most Canadian politicians are globalists, who are acting on orders from their masters, who want to demonize Russia because Putin is not amenable to their schemes to loot Russia, and he got rid of their friends the former Russian “oligarchs” who were assisting said looting (this is also a large part of the reason why Democrats/McCain/Graham types are so against Russia and always try to tie Pres. Trump to Russia, it’s a 2 for 1 deal to paint their 2 enemies as conspiring together)

      -by providing “military assistance” to Ukraine, Canadian politicans get bragging rights within NATO about how “We’ere Pulling Our Weight!” (they’re not, Canada’s military is pathetically underfunded and ill-equipped, if a real war broke out they’d be useless, like Germany) at a much lower cost than having an actual capable military, so they can blow the money that should be spent on defence on pet projects

      Of course everyone in Canada ignores the obvious contradiction in supporting the Kiev regime, which is that there are a lot of real Nazi’s in Ukraine today. Just look at the unit insigina of many of their military and “militia” units, they are identical to the SS unit insignias of the Nazi German Allies. Stepan Bandera was a full on Nazi supporter, and the Ukrainians are famous for massacres of anyone they don’t like, throughout history, whether they be Polish, Russians, Moldavians or many others. Ask a Ukrainian about Poland, for example, and they will tell you about the 17th century when Poland ruled Ukraine, like it was yesterday, the same for thier views on Russians, etc. They never forget a perceived historical wrong.

      How do I know this? Polish family, and went to school with several Ukrainians (who didn’t know my father was Polish). I am also a dual US/Canada citizen currently located near Toronto. Trudeau repels me, his smarmy arrogant I-know-better voice is constantly on the media here, he is like a model, all looks but no brains, just reptilian politician, to the core. Sadly, women seem to love the guy, they slavishly vote for him in large numbers, while gushing over his hair or his abs. Pretty much a twin to Obama, from different mothers – supremely unqualified and incompetent to be leader of a country, but there they are.

      1. Kalen

        The righteous Ukrainian people have written true account of Ukrainian nationalists war crimes that never had their Nuremberg trial purposely excluded (So Russian and Western war crimes) on the insistence of western allies after WWII.
        One of them was surprisingly Ukrainian-Canadian Wiktor Poliszczuk of Toronto,Canada who wrote a book entitled: “Bitter Truth: Shadow of Stepan Bandera over crime of Genocide” unfortunately I do not know about English translation of that book yet, originally it was written in Ukrainian and Polish languages.
        Here is a film on that subject [18+];
        Note that ethic cleansing advocating political theorists Doncov and Bandera are considered founding fathers of the Ukrainian Nazism. Bandera himself, now official national Ukrainian hero worshiped by people like Freeland, was freed in September 1939 from Polish prison in Brest Litovsk fled to Galicia (western Ukraine) after he was sentenced to prison for his organization of the assassination of Polish government minister just few years before. These we not democrats.

        Let us not be fulled by Justin’s dancing prowess, Canada is an oligarchic state and Ukrainian oligarchy in Tar Sands oil business in the western provinces are part of oligarchic ruling elite in Canada and hence through Deep state security connection with the US are directing Canadian foreign policy of touchy feely government of dancing Trudeau. Canada was the country that granted asylum to the son of Bandera who continued fathers works. I bet Freeland knew him.
