So, then we come to this. This is the one that especially concerns me, personally. If you take a look through this document, pay special attention to the photo illustration on page 132.  Although they don’t outright say it, this would be perfect for travel checkpoints between cities and regions for their allegedly planned lockdowns and to continue using this system afterwards.

[scroll down to page 58-68 to see the rest of what I’m talking about]


Let's take a further look at this.

[1.1] The 10 year contract bid (which closes December 15th) is for a ‘Transport Canada National Electronic Solution’ for the workflow system to capture data related to major enforcement/investigations within the transportation sector. They will call it “MISS Solution”. 


  • The MISS Solution will have approximately 125 licenses, and 650 users.
  • The motivation behind the project: [2.3] “the CEE recommended in 2015, that the need to significantly enhance the Departments ability to conduct investigations was both urgent, and critical.”
  • Currently the CEE has the ability to provide trained investigators to support their major case investigations, but they were using paper methods that were quote “inefficient, archaic, and potentially ineffective paper based systems”. This lack of software solution coupled with *high sensitive evidence* is to blame [- apparently.]

They also say further down in the document that the system will enable them to have Improved Enforcement Capabilities. [3.3]


1. INTEGRATES INFORMATION between jurisdictions entities, courts, and corrections, “collaborating horizontally, and vertically” as they state.   [ This has high potential to be misused by low level public enforcement agencies. ]
2. CONTROLS ACCESS to that information by enforcing a SECURE ROLE-BASED access CONTROL which reflects the individuals’ roles and responsibilities. [ They are basically saying that Trudeau would have the master Access Key, and be able to determine what parts of our system everyone else can access and see. This has extremely high potential to be misused by the highest levels of government. ]
3. SYSTEMATIC SEARCH FUNCTIONS, including transformation and routing of REDACTED INFO, to assist in the enforcement and investigation of data. [ Searching redacted information?? ]
4. MANAGES ASSETS and their components, ranging from guns and vehicles to digital evidence presentations, while also maintaining INVENTORY OF resource skills, availability, and location. [3.1.2] [ This is pretty strange.. it doesn’t say if these are private or public assets. Are they just going to inventory every gun and vehicle in Canada, label them as “their inventory” and put them in the system for tracking?? ]
5. Comprehensive FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT[ What this has to do with the transport regulation agencies, is beyond me… Are they going to have everyone’s financials in the same system?? ]
6. Build/manage ENTERPRISE RECORDS conforming to legislation, operational and intelligence requirements. [3.1.3] [ Are they implying economic and company records?? ] 
7. Facilitate the PROACTIVE identification of OPPORTUNITIES for detection, prevention, and disruption of investigations or where criminal and terrorist activity is indicated. [3.1.4] [ Not only does Trudeau get this masterpass system, they have AI within the system that will actively search out people who are committing offenses. …Now, this doesn’t seem like such an insignificant system only used by the traffic authorities anymore, does it? Something is seriously off about this. ] 
8. [1.4-g] The “software will be configurable and capable to readily revise to accommodate changing business needs”, and, [1.4-h] “It will be provided in a way be configurable to the specific needs and processes via GUI or Backend of each business model within transport Canada that they work, without impacting the configuration required by other business units.” [ You will notice, they overcompensated too far on their wording a bit too far. (“Paper is inefficient and archaic” – > clearly. We can use the US election for example there *insert eyeroll*) So, they want a backdoor to be able to change each individual licensed system, so that it is independently configurable. Makes sense to a point, makes me nervous that Trudeau has the master key. ]


They’ve got Aviation Safety/Security, Intermodal Surface Security Oversight, Marine Safety/Security, Motor Vehicle Safety, Navigable Waters Protection, Rail Safety, Transportation of Dangerous Goods, Office of Incident Management; and then they also have listed:

->>**Emergency Management Branch – ?? (- so, Canada’s v. FEMA?)

->>**Centre of Enforcement Expertise – ?? (- so, Canada’s v. Homeland Security?)

[ I looked up this “CEE” entity, and weirdly enough, I can’t find ANY information about them. Only the U.S. version of the similar name… if anyone has any leads on these, please let me know!! It’s a bit freaky I can’t find them on the internet. ]

[2.2] The outcome of an investigation, they say “typically leads to charges, sanctions, and/or penalties against the individuals which are then possibly followed up by court proceedings or the TATC Tribunal.” 

[2.3] These investigations may result in a mandated enforcement action under a wide range of regulatory authorities.


External Stakeholders

[ – The wording on this next section is just creepy. ] 

Department of Justice/Courts/Prosecutors, “The department of Justice, courts and prosecutors are interested in the best outcomes of criminal prosecutions. They WILL BE SUPPORTIVE of MISS as it will facilitate timely and complete disclosure of information, which will reduce the risk of liability or dismissal due to incomplete disclosure”

Other Police Agencies, Shared Services Canada. This is described as “either the IT infrastructure provider or as the Cloud broker, SSC could influence implementation schedule and costs; however a solution architecture and design is not directly influenced. [ so… China’s Huawei? ] It also lists the Public Service Procurement Canada (formerly Services Canada), Treasury Board (GCEARB),  Federal,  Provincial,  Municipal Governments,  Transportation Appeal Tribunal of Canada


  • Phase 1 (Project Initiation) Approval – Starts: December ’20 Ends: December ’20 
  • Phase 2 (Project Planning) Resolve Issues – Starts December ’20 Ends: December 20′ 
  • Phase 3 (Execution) Control Management Support – Starts: January ’21 Ends: Sept ’21 
  • Phase 4 (Deployment) and Support – Starts: October ’21 Ends: Sept ’24

Internal Stakeholders

– Motor Vehicle Safety will test during proof of concept stage. This group is piloting the software with designs for their own needs and will have no impact on the current MISS Solution.

– The Civil Aviation Safety Enforcement will be the first “user” to implement the system.

– Primary Users: Regional Enforcement Units (REU), Surge Capacity Team (SCT), Investigation Services Division (ISD)

– Will Provide some inspectors (FTE) to complement the REU teams: Aviation Security, Marine Safety, Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TGD), Rail Safety

– Finance: Administrative Monetary Penalty Collections will perform collection duties for outstanding AMP’s.

– Human Resources will provide staff as required.

The potential behind this system to have universal access and the ability to misuse it, is incredibly concerning.

Now, these next ones say “cancelled”, however, they are also slapped with an “awarded” notice at the top. Uncertain if these were cancelled and then it automatically assigned it to be “awarded” or if the contract was in fact not cancelled.
