Large newpapers get their info off of news feeds like Reuters and the smaller newspapers like the ones I contacted in Provost and Winnipeg a number of years back said they did not have the resouces to cover such a story. Don't believe me contact the local newpaper in Provost, Alberta and ask them if I Scott Harrison did not contact them in 2005 about this story. They tell you they don't have the resources. Every one thinks that a person with a picture and a story can run to the papers and it will be on the front page the next day. Try it. It doesnt work that way. Theres aways liability or costs involved that make printing a story like this one very hard. I had an occupational disease called Weils disease from working at a water treatment plant in 1999 that caused severe systemic damages that to this day I have not been compensated for. 10 years without a salery combined with the above effects made it hard to get anything out. I have hard evidence of what I say. I live in Ontario were people dont even know what BSE is and for the most part they are to busy to do anything. I apologise for this.

there is actually a case with Ridley against the Canadian gov knowingly importing BSE contaminated bone meal and transporting it to Alberta.
there is a meeting in our area and in several other areas about this. Ridley has filed a claim, spent near 600 million or something to that effect, and the lawyers are not only going after for the farmer and financial loss but emotional as well. This meeting on the 26th in our area is to update us on what is happening. Looks like the gov' might settle out of court....but that could change.
There is a web site but in my tired state i forgot the name. I will get back to you on that next week
and i will post the findings of the meeting

I am currently working with a Alberta company -BSE prion solutions Inc. out of Edmonton to bring all of the information forward. We have a lot of evidence from the time of this illegal importation(1998) in the form of actual documentation(100's of pages), WTI's backup hardrive from 1998, pictures, testomony, related events, the tag off of the bag with the BSE/bone meal in it as well as a small sample of this material. The reason for these WTI people to do this is listed in the 23 page report I mentioned at the begining of this post. Just email me for a copy.
More proof that this BSE/bone meal imported by WTI out of Burlington, Ontario from Ireland caused the Alberta BSE.
You might of seen this already:
http://www.aaaf.ab.ca/index.php?option= ... &Itemid=28
This link to the AAAF in Alberta also states that:
"the only risk factor for the spread of BSE is through feeding cattle meat and bone meal (MBM) derived from BSE-infected cattle. BSE prions are resistant to normal inactivation procedures, such as disinfectants and heat. BSE prions are not completely destroyed by the rendering process."
This to me says that BSE/bone meal from the UK (as is the bone meal imported to WTI in Burlington, Ontario from Ireland in 1998) is the only causative agent for BSE in cattle.
It is also stated that:
"Why don't we test all cattle for BSE?
OIE guidelines are based on science and recommend BSE surveillance be targeted to those groups of cattle most likely to test positive. It takes between two and eight years following exposure to BSE before cattle develop clinical disease. In the United Kingdom, of 180,000 cattle found to be positive for BSE, only 0.05% were 30 months of age or less and 0.006% were 24 months of age or less. Over 80% of cattle slaughtered in Alberta are less than 18 to 22 months of age and are, therefore, extremely unlikely to test positive."
This to me says that the time frame for the Alberta cattle to get BSE from Herb Campbell/Jim Woods illegal importation/exposure is correct. Also since thousands of cattle were tested and only 15 came up positive, how could this be? It is because the 20-30 Kg of BSE/bone meal brought by Herb Campbell to infect the Alberta herds can only cause a limited number of BSE/infected cattle events.
One thing I must mention. In 2005 I contacted Steve Webster as previously mentioned about this BSE situation. He as I mentioned had talked with a visiting Russian Veterinary Scientist about my documentation. The Russian Veterinary Scientist absolutely agreed that the type of exposure caused by Herb Campbell/Jim Wood and described in my documentation would cause this Alberta BSE.
Ontario lawyer Cammeron Pallette is representing Mr. Saurer and his claim against the Canadian Government for BSE damages to the Canadian Cattle Industry. Cammeron Pallette states in one of his online legal statements that as little as 1 mg of BSE/prion material would cause clinical BSE in a cow. If the 20-30 Kg of BSE/bone meal illegally imported by Herb Campbell from Ireland in 1998 had even a low part per million concentration of BSE/prions it would easily have caused all of the Alberta BSE/cattle events.
I guess this is why an knowledgeable agro journalist from Winnipeg could say this to me after I sent him a copy of the 23 page document. "This BSE occurs only in the UK. Alberta is on the opposite end of the planet. Why did this not occur at points in between? It's more than obvious that someone brought BSE infected material(bone meal) here to Canada and purposely caused this Alberta BSE!"
In addition to this a french bio-technical company contacted me 2 years ago. A Quebec lawyer whom I had contacted forwarded a copy of the 23 page document to them. They said that they knew that the Alberta BSE was obviously the product of a single purposeful event/exposure most likely caused by the introduction of BSE infected bone meal to Alberta's herds. They said that if you plotted Alberta BSE events vs. time you would come up with half a normal distribution- exactly what you would expect from a single exposure/event. They went on to say that the people who have tried to say that there was 2 individually occurring situations here that caused the Alberta BSE were just trying to find a possible thought extremely unlikely way of explaining away this situation. They said why would these two BSE causing events only have occurred in Alberta and no where else? My engineer friend said it's like 'Occam's Razor' which states the simple explanation is always correct as follows:
Also, the office of the Minister of Agriculture has contacted me just lately:
I was just contacted by the office of Gerry Ritz, PC, MP (I guess the current Canadian Minister of Agriculture). They had an older copy of the 23 page document forwarded to them by someone(Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General?). I guess that since they picked up some of this BSE/bone meal in 1998 and people are beginning to become aware of this they are wondering about their liability for not really taking the time to properly investigate this BSE situation. I told them they can buy the book when it comes out. I really don't like taking to these government people but did mention to them that I intend to continue to work with yourself and your company BSE solutions Inc in Alberta to resolve this situation.
Mr. Arnold of BSE solutions Inc is very much on yourside. You should support him he is a good man:Hi Scott, I wish to apologise for not getting back to you - I am visiting family and friends in England for a while and will return to Canada later in August. As soon as I do return, I will let you know that I am back. I have to thank you for your patience in this matter and believe me when say, I have all intentions to go forward with this and to work closely with you to let the world know what has happened in Canada regarding the BSE outbreak. Thanks again Scott.Ron.
Remember what we are doing will get the Alberta Farmers and our friends in the US who have sustained losses from this BSE situation compensation for the damages that these Ontario/former government of Canada bastards have caused you.
This can only help you.
