What Could AnonOps Have On John Baird?

Could Dramatically Effect Election

by Daniel Johnson

Canadian Anons leaked documents that had a major impact on Canada's intelligence community this week, and now they are targetting Harper's cabinet. 

The first document leaked was a budget request, which also confirmed the existence of secretive CSIS foreign service operations in 25 different countries. The most recent message said the next week would concern John Baird. 

Baird, who was Canada's Foreign Affairs Minister until February of this year, very suddenly announced his resignation from Cabinet, and from Parliament. This turned out to be a step up for Baird as he immediately became a highly paid 'advisor' to Barrick Gold Corp, a company with an extensive record of environmental and human rights abuses, which has benefitted immensely from the intervention of Canadian officials under John Baird's leadership, including pro-mining criteria in Canada's Foreign Aid programs that make it difficult for countries receiving foreign aid to prevent abuses by mining companies. 

Hackers working under the name Anonymous posted a warning of a future release of documents regarding John Baird on the Twitter account @OpAnonDown, in honour of James Daniel McIntyre, an Anon murdered by RCMP in Dawson Creek. 

At 7:49 AM on July 29, 2015, they posted: 

: we've decrypted text messages w/ real reason @Baird quit abruptly. Video too. Stay tuned.

According to the mainstream media, the account is one that the National Post confirms is the same one used by activists responsible for the CSIS leak.

Whatever they have on John Baird, it will be worth paying attention to, though it would be better if AnonOps would release them all and save us the wait.
