RCMP CORRUPTION: THE LONNIE LANDRUD STORY

by Arthur Topham

February 28, 2012


Corruption, particularly within police forces, be they municipal police or Canada’s Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), is not a new phenomenon. Neither for that matter is corruption within Canada’s judiciary system be it at the provincial or federal levels. Most people realize this who have ever had dealings with either of these two branches of government.

Coupled with corruption of course is the vital need for cover-up, be it by those working within the policing systems and the courts or, failing that, analogous media channels normally (or once normally) understood to be sources of unbiased news and information. There was a time when the mainstream media’s (msm) job was, traditionally, to investigate criminal activities of all types and expose them for the greater good of society. That was one of the fundamental reasons why democracies supposedly valued a free and independent press and media.

But, as we are now realizing, especially here in British Columbia over the past number of years, the RCMP have done a bang up job of heaping ignominy and shame upon their once highly regarded reputation within policing agencies around the world. It’s not my intent though in this article to go into the numerous cases which illustrate this fact but rather to focus on one particular, highly contentious example that up to this point has failed to receive the press and media attention that I believe it is due. I am referring to the startling and for many normal people, the almost unbelievable experience of Mr. Lonnie Lundrud which is now being presented here for readers viewing and consideration.

What was most amazing for me when I first viewed this short 7-Part YouTube series was the fact that the story had occurred right in my own backyard (Quesnel, B.C.) and still I hadn’t become aware of it until close to 5 years later after the video interview with Mr. Landrud was first put up on YouTube and this was 9 years after the alleged incident took place. On top of that I had been in the publishing business myself since 1998 and still the event somehow eluded me. Strange indeed.

Stranger still, when I began to check into some of the bizarre occurrences, was the fact that I had once had dealings with one of the murdered RCMP officers, Bev Hosker. While it was unrelated to the incident that Lonnie Landrud describes in his videos it nonetheless linked the two events, again, in unusual ways. Those events are recorded within the archives of the Quesnel Cariboo Observer’s letters section and date back to 1997.

The obvious question arose in my mind when I viewed the videos: Why was it that so few people had actually seen them over the past five years? Given their content plus the fact that the RCMP have been in the news for years now thanks to their illegal and increasingly aberrant behaviour toward the public, I found it mind-boggling that on average less than two thousand views of the full seven parts had taken place over this period of time.

Having investigated similar stories of RCMP corruption in the past as well as now covering the case of Jim Townsend which is also linked directly to malfeasance on the part of the RCMP, I felt that this story needed some added impetus to bring it further out of the shadows and into the clear light of public awareness. It’s definitely not a something that makes the mounties look good in any way and its for that reason that they, the judicial system and the controlled media within B.C. and Canada have done their damnedest to keep this story from gaining any serious publicity. Should justice ever prevail in this instance it will not only absolve Lonnie Landrud of all the bad publicity and lies that have befallen him but it may also unearth the hidden truth about many of the young women who have disappeared in this area of the province over the past decade and longer. It is my contention, based upon these videos and other evidence, that the RCMP and the courts and the Crown itself are directly complicit in all of this horrible breach of justice.

Don’t write Arthur at this email address - After publishing this and other more recent exposes’ his computer was seized by the RCMP and he is forbidden to continue communicating to the public. His website is still live www.RadicalPress.com and readers can see the last story he posted before he was raided was exposing the RCMP and their internal Sexual Harassment problems.

Due to the link this person provided we feel it is worthy to post. When Judges Lawyers and Police are involved in corruption the correct question, asked within this forum, who are citizens going to complain to? One must remember Judge Ramsey and the RCMP involvement in keeping his secret, secret; the beating and rape of an underage native girl.

Google Judge Ramsey with the letters "RCMP" - "Happy Reading"

CTV report video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKOI-zpQ9x8

From this following story;

http://www.canada.com/theprovince/news/story.html?id=2b7d502e-6066-4c42-934b-c7a3bf810ae8

David Ramsay, a former provincial court judge, was sentenced in 2004 to seven years in jail after he was charged with preying on young aboriginal women, ranging in age from 12 to 17, over an eight-year period beginning in 1992.

Ramsay pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault causing bodily harm, three counts of obtaining sexual services from someone under 18 and breach of trust by a public officer.

After his conviction, B.C. aboriginal leaders demanded an inquiry into allegations that surfaced at Ramsay's trial that at least 10 police officers knew about Ramsay's conduct and either looked the other way or got involved.


All RCMP got off, the main native girl involved, took her own life after they got off, and no one hears about this anymore in the mainstream press.

Read Jenny's own words here before she died.

The Lonnie Landrud Story

It didn't take much time to find information on Lonnie from people who live in Quesnel.

Here's Lonnie lashing out at people he disagrees with on a Quesnel message board blanket accusing them of being RCMP officers.

It is four pages, so happy reading.

My letter probably won't be published, but maybe Merv will read it and it will temper his downward spiral into conspiracy theories.

(ps) Not everyone writing anonymously is a coward, some want to keep the line between their online presence and their real life intact. Others still don't want their families dragged into the politics which erupt here every couple days, and posting under a fake name at least forces people to stick to the topic instead of personal attacks. If you do not want participants to have privacy here, simply force everyone to register, but don't be surprised when your base of contributors and members diminishes.


Yes, your letter is now published
