This CotD was inspired by a couple of articles this author recently encountered relating to Canada’s Wildfires.

First, an article by John Carter on June 6th “Canada Burning – Climate Change or Climate Terrorism?” (

From the John Carter’s article:

“Wildfires on this scale, at this point in the year, are in my experience unprecedented”.

“As you can see, not only are we on track for the worst wildfire season on record, the temporal pattern is completely out of step with what we normally see. In every other year, wildfire season is mid-August, mid-July at the earliest. The beginning of June is unheard of”

Second, an article by Dr. William Makis on June 11th “Canadian Fires are being set deliberately – many recent Quebec and Alberta fires started simultaneously” ( There are recent videos of satellite imagery and some links to main-stream news related arson as the cause of these wildfires.

Panel 1 This image is from the Natural Resources Canada (NRC) under Canadian Wildland Fire Information System ( The NRC website is a very good source of information related to wildfires and it is recommended to view the various maps and data.


Panel 2 This graph of Annual Cumulative Burned Area is the author’s construct to verify the data. Canada’s wildfire season begins in late April and extends into September on an annual basis. The wildfires burned area varies over time with an annual average burned area in the order of 2.7 million hectares per year from 2012 to 2022. Typically, by June 9th of the wildfire season, there would be about 286 thousand hectares burned based on the averages since 2012. As of June 9, 2023, Canada’s wildfires have already burned over 4.8 million hectares (nearly 17 times higher than the normal average) which has already exceeded the worst season of 2014.


Panel 3   The following is sourced from the Canada’s National Defense Counter-Insurgency Operations manual ( :

Remember, insurgency is not limited to national citizens alone.  Insurgency can include foreign entities as well as governments of the country itself.  Insurgency is a crime against a country (like Canada for example) which includes conspiracy, terrorism, treason, sabotage and sedition.  Question from the author, “Is Canada experiencing an insurgency (from our governments in concert with foreign entities) by way of pandemic, climate change and/or other means?”

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”
