THE CORRUPTION OF OUR INSTITUTIONS 2
An Open Letter to the Chief of Police – Calgary Police Service 27April2023
I am taking a great risk by publishing this open letter. The standard reaction to criticism by the brutal-and-corrupt Calgary Police Service (CPS) and Calgary Crown Prosecutors office is intimidation, brutality, false charges, false imprisonment, deceit and interminable delay. However, if I were to remain silent, I would be condoning the collaboration of the Police and the Crown in the crimes of child abduction, child abuse, extortion, and child trafficking. I want these crimes against children and families to stop. This is my attempt to do so.

When I arrived in Calgary in 1984, I had a positive impression of the Calgary Police Service (CPS). I became friends with one of the deputy police chiefs, coached soccer with the head of the Calgary Police Association, and I’m still friends with one retired CPS detective.
Circa 2000, I became aware of criminal conduct within the CPS. A young woman on her high school graduation night was knocked unconscious for no justification by a brutal CPS officer, and another young woman who I knew cursed at him. Instead of admitting his brutal error, the officer falsely charged both young women with assault. A complicit and corrupt Crown prosecutor’s office did not drop the charges. This false criminal charge scam is a standard CPS tactic in which lawsuits and criminal charges against the CPS are negotiated away in return for dropping the false CPS charges. This practice of false CPS charges requires the collaboration of corrupt senior police officers, Crown prosecutors, police lawyers and perhaps even the judiciary.
In 2008, one of my close business associates was brutally beaten by CPS officers at CPS Station 2. He is an older man with significant health problems and has an excellent reputation in the business community. CPS officers pulled him over because he was allegedly driving in the wrong lane when in fact it was a dark rainy night and they were two sets of paint lines on the road. They took him to Station 2 and put him in a room where about six waiting CPS officers threw him on his face and stomped on his torso until he defecated himself. I verified these facts with his prominent Calgary lawyer, who arrived at Station 2 soon after the event. As is common in such cases of CPS brutality, my colleague’s complaint was whitewashed. I told him to request his Police records and he found a false allegation that he had assaulted a business colleague. The CPS officers who beat him apparently used this false report as justification for their brutal beating. He remains traumatized by this event and no longer drives.
Another friend of mine recently told me of a similar situation. He was dating the ex-wife of a CPS officer who insisted on meeting him, allegedly to “insure that their children would be safe”. When he went to the house for the meeting, he was met with five CPS officers in an obvious intimidation attempt. He was taken to a police station and threatened with criminal charges. He found out that his police records had been falsified to include allegations of disreputable conduct. It is apparent that such false allegations in CPS records are deliberately inserted as a signal to CPS officers to beat the individual and/or falsely charge him. My friend made it known for the officers that he had a prominent Calgary lawyer on retainer, and his lawyer had the false CPS records expunged.
In Calgary in 2016 and again in 2018, ~9* unarmed civilians were shot by city police, in a population of 1.4 million, a rate of 6.43 per million. In the USA in 2019, a total of 56 unarmed civilians were shot and killed by police, in a population of 330 Million, a rate of 0.17 per million. IN CONCLUSION, BASED ON THIS DATA, AN UNARMED PERSON IS ~38 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO BE SHOT BY CALGARY POLICE THAN BY POLICE IN THE USA.
Note*: I deducted one Calgary police shooting victim who (technically) was “armed”- Dave McQueen had a rifle but he was a quadriplegic, with limited use of his arms. The same trigger-happy Calgary cop also killed unarmed, unthreatening Anthony Heffernan, shooting him several times in the face. ASIRT recommended murder charges against that CPS officer, but the Calgary Crown prosecutors office refused to lay charges. Two CPS officers have shot two unarmed civilians in separate incidents and neither was charged. Calgary cops shoot unarmed, unthreatening citizens with impunity, and Crown Prosecutors and the judiciary are also complicit.
Policing in Canada it’s not even among the Top 10 most dangerous jobs in the country. Unlike USA citizens, Canadians are generally unarmed. The founding principles of the first police force, created by Sir Robert Peel in Britain, was for an unarmed force whose mission was to uphold the law and act as a peaceful friend to the citizenry. Street police in Britain and also in Newfoundland continue to be unarmed. Based on the history of the extremely excessive CPS shootings of unarmed citizens, Calgarians would be safer and better-served if Calgary street cops were also unarmed.
It is obvious that a significant thuggish minority of officers in the CPS are out of control, routinely brutalize and shoot unarmed civilians, and treat the CPS as their personal playpen wherein they can engage in criminal conduct with impunity. There is an absence of competent management by senior officers and an absence of proper oversight by the Chief of Police, the Calgary Police Commission and other police oversight authorities. In my considerable business experience on six continents, I’ve observed that such obvious corruption is often only the “tip of the iceberg” and there is much more corruption beneath the surface.
Organizations are defined, not by their average behaviour, but by the worst behavior. According to this standard, the Calgary Police Service is a brutal, corrupt, criminal organization. While this criminality may only describe the worst ~~10% of CPS officers, it is clearly supported and covered-up by senior CPS management and oversight bodies and it contaminates the image of all decent, hard-working CPS officers.
The Calgary Crown prosecutor’s office is similarly corrupt and disgraced by their obvious criminal conduct.
THE SILVER BULLET SCAM
An acquaintance of mine was falsely charged by his partner with domestic violence and CPS officers accepted and acted on her lies with no credible evidence. He protested strongly but legally, and made repeated inquiries to clarify the real facts of the case. Corrupt CPS officers and Crown prosecutors lodged ~ten more false charges against him , falsely alleged that he was dangerous and imprisoned him in remand for 444 days pending trial. During his incarceration, full custody of his infant child was awarded to his partner. When he finally was tried, he was found Not Guilty on all charges by an honest Judge but his life and finances were ruined and his child was fraudulently abducted and remains to this day in the full custody of the lying mother and he has no access to that child. This was a classic case of the Silver Bullet Scam, in which corrupt police, Crown prosecutors and lawyers bring the full force of the law against an innocent man and commit child abduction, extortion and punishment when no crime has been committed. The harm done by the Silver Bullet Scam is enormous and extends beyond the child abduction, child abuse and extortion.
One expert on child trafficking in Alberta explained the full extent of Silver Bullet Scam thus:
A sociopathic women files false charges of partner abuse, for extortion or revenge. The police arrest the man without any credible evidence - "Just believe the woman!". The father loses access to his child and fights to defend himself from the false charge and often loses all access to his child forever. The child cannot stand living with her/his toxic mother and hits the street, where she/he is picked up by the drugs-and-sex traffickers. The police, Crown prosecutors, judges and justices, family lawyers and family councilors all profit from this vile scam, which requires enormous resources to be expended by the Crown for the illegal abduction of the child. Some provincially-appointed judges retain their credibility and integrity, but the federally-appointed justices that I am familiar with appear to not only tolerate but encourage the Silver Bullet Scam.
It's been called the "Silver Bullet Scam" for more than twenty years. and it's been around for decades longer, yet everyone I spoke with in the family law business falsely claims they've never heard of it - because they profit from it.
Another opinion came from a famous Canadian former hockey player who has personal knowledge of this subject, who summed it up for me thus: "They're ALL pedophiles!". He may be at least partially correct. It is extremely improbable that anyone in the law business could be this wrong, this obtuse, for this long – they know that they are involved in child abduction, child abuse and extortion and they make money from it and so they continue to enable this crime.
The Silver Bullet scam exists in Canada, the USA and Britain, and probably also in several other English-speaking countries.
I have two engineering degrees from Queens University and the University of Alberta. I worked in the consulting engineering field serving the mining and petroleum industries from 1971 to 1984, when I joined the petroleum industry.
Since 1984 I have worked on six continents and was instrumental in the success of several multi-billion dollar projects. I personally initiated three of the four major changes that revitalized the Alberta oil sands Industry and made Canada the 4th largest oil producer in the world. I also prevented a sour gas leak that had to potential to kill hundreds of thousands of Calgarians (including up to 50% or more of all CPS officers and their families), and for my actions I received an award from the International Society of Petroleum Engineers. I served on the Board of Directors of the Calgary Drop In Center for 16 years and played a significant role in solving several major problems, resulting in safe housing being provided to Calgary’s homeless singles and families. These world-class achievements in my career resulted in me being nominated by highly accomplished individuals for several major awards.
Since this happened to me, it can happen to any law-abiding citizen.
I was subjected to a false Silver Bullet scam by corrupt and incompetent Calgary police and Crown prosecutors. Their crimes included false arrest, false imprisonment, child abduction and child abuse, a million-dollar extortion scam, perjury and malfeasance in a public office.
In October 2012 I notified my wife that I was divorcing her because of her alcohol abuse. The next day she brutally assaulted me and injured me and I did not retaliate in any way. She then took our four-year-old daughter and drove drunk to her sister's house, where she called the police. She initiated a Silver Bullet extortion scam, which is false allegation of spousal brutality. Her sister had attempted two similar false allegations against her partner, weeks before and again weeks after my wife’s false charges. There are audio recordings of the second event. In these audio recordings, her sister explains how she is going to use the Silver Bullet Scam to extort money from her partner, “… just like happened to Allan”.
The CPS investigation by the two male officers was highly irregular. One CPS officer asked the sister’s male partner to leave the building so the other officer could interview my wife alone. They interviewed her for 2 to 3 hours, examined her and found no injuries whatsoever. They were later left alone with her and the young children, while the sister’s partner went to pick her up from her family violence course. The arresting CPS officer admitted under oath that they made the decision to arrest me without interviewing me, arrived at my residence, arrested me immediately, took me downtown and imprisoned me overnight. I was evicted from my longtime residence for six months and prevented for two months from seeing my young daughter, for whom I was the primary caregiver.
When I sat down with my two lawyers and my wife’s first lawyer, her lawyer explained that my false arrest was intended to breach a generous Pre-Marriage Contract that exempted my long-term residence. Her lawyer said, in the presence of me and my two lawyers, “Give us your condo or you won’t see your daughter for six months.“ My lawyers should have reported this breach of conduct to the Law Society of Alberta, but they did not.
With the help of my two lawyers, I was able to regain access to my young daughter after two months. During this two month period, my daughter was left with her violent, abusive aunt and was witness to a constant barrage of loud, violent arguments, much of which is available on audio recordings that have been transcribed. My daughter had never witnessed this sort of behaviour between my wife and me, because it never happened. When I finally recovered my daughter after two months of such loud, violent, verbal abuse, she was terribly traumatized and would curl up in the fetal position at the slightest aggravation. This child abduction and child abuse was the most egregious damage done by this Silver Bullet Scam, in which corrupt Calgary police, Crown prosecutors, judges, justices and lawyers were complicit.
For the next 10 years until early 2022, my daughter has suffered from severe separation anxiety and has insisted on staying within sight of me at all times when she is under my care. Witnesses have seen her scream in terror when she lost sight of me for even a moment. This separation anxiety started to ease in early 2022 although it now returns from time to time. She has spent fully ten of her fourteen years in recovery, which continues.
The abduction and abuse of children for purposes of extortion used to be a capital crime in Canada. Now the Silver Bullet Scam is a lucrative money-making scam that profits all aspects of the law business in Canada. The Silver Bullet Scam has been known by that name for more than 20 years and has existed for decades longer. In recent years, the leftist mantra “Just believe the woman“ has encouraged incompetent and corrupt practitioners of the law to use the Silver Bullet Scam in fractious divorces. The result is the irrevocable destruction of the marriage and incredible psychological damage to everyone involved, especially the children.
The Silver Bullet Scam is decades-old and everyone in a law business must be fully aware of it, although many will claim ignorance.
In the bill of my wife’s first lawyer who initiated the Silver Bullet Scam, there was a charge for emails exchanged between that lawyer and the arresting officer. The CPS has refused to provide those emails.
There is blatant perjury by the arresting officer when comparing his sworn truthful statements at my trial and his subsequent rebuttal of those statements in a sworn statement. CPS investigation of this blatant perjury was dragged out for years and finally the current Chief of Police signed a false, whitewash opinion that there was no perjury involved. By signing this false whitewash report, the current Calgary Chief of Police became complicit in the crimes of child abduction, child abuse, extortion, and malfeasance in a public office.
Other parts of this investigation were also deliberately fraudulent. One such example is the false statement that the police had investigated several allegations of domestic violence at my residence, when in fact those police investigations of alleged violence occurred at the sisters residence, due to altercations between the sister and her partner. There was never any such CPS investigation at my residence because there was no such previous violence.
It is also remarkable at the arresting officer and his partner never seemed to have referred to those previous CPS investigations at the sisters residence. It should’ve been obvious to even the most obtuse officers that they were dealing with a false allegation, since this was not the first one lodged from the sister’s residence.
When I finally was tried in criminal court after about six months, I was found not guilty and exonerated by Judge Semenuk in a written judgment. In court, the judge strongly criticized the CPS officers and the Crown prosecutor for bringing forward this case with no credible supporting evidence.
The Crown prosecutor clearly breached her own Code of Conduct by aggressively trying to convict me when she had absolutely no credible evidence. This Crown prosecutor also suppressed radiology evidence by my medical expert. showing that I was significantly injured by my wife’s unprovoked attack. This highly unethical Crown prosecutor seemed only interested in winning, not in justice.
In contrast, the arresting officer spoke honestly during my trial and only started to lie later, when he was challenged about his failure to conduct a competent investigation before arresting me.
When I lodged complaints against this criminal CPS conduct, I was warned by a sergeant that I was causing problems. A gang of CPS thugs did subsequently burst into my condo building past our security just as I was heading down the elevator to take my young daughter to school. As I exited our parkade, one CPS van drove in front of me and another CPS van drove behind me and escorted me out of my driveway at about 1 mph, an obvious attempt at intimidation. Again, my complaint on this incident to the CPS was whitewashed.
After I moved to my new residence, a speeding CPS cruiser with sirens blaring ran us off the bicycle path, scaring my daughter and causing her to cry. This was done on a one-way northbound section of Edmonton Trail on a dedicated bicycle path by a police cruiser that was racing southward. This was another blatant attempt at intimidation by corrupt CPS thugs.
When my daughter was interviewed by an officer at the Sheldon Kennedy Centre and stated that she had been struck in the face by her aunt and her mother, that officer conveniently lost the video recording. There are too many convenient one-sided “errors” in this case that all point in the same direction – a whitewash, a dishonest exoneration of criminal conduct by CPS officers and others.
The damages caused by this false arrest, false imprisonment and extortion scam are irreparable. The last 10 years of my life have been ruined, I lost access to my residence for six months, I lost millions of dollars, and my health has been severely damaged through the incredible stress of this ordeal. My daughter’s psychological health has been severely harmed, she has spent 10 of her 14 years in recovery from her abuse, and she still suffers occasional attacks of anxiety. She was, at four years old, a very confident and happy child and CPS and Crown prosecutor criminal misconduct destroyed that happiness and confidence, perhaps forever.
Other damages include a false CPS report about me that has not been adequately corrected, and is apparently intended to set me up for a police beating such as happened to my business colleague. In addition, that false CPS report was shared with US authorities, which is illegal, and I was questioned about it by a US Customs officer the last time I entered the USA. I carried with me a copy of Judge Semenuk’s exonerating judgement that cleared up the problem, but it will probably recur.
I complained to the CPS in October 2015 that their officers had lied and one had committed perjury, and the evidence was “incontrovertible”, according to Queen’s Bench Justice Wilson. The arresting CPS constables testified about 19 times under oath in my Trial in January 2013 that they DID NOT interview me before arresting me. However, after I lodged my Complaint, both officers changed their stories and stated that they DID interview me before making the arrest, and the lead arresting officer lied in his sworn Affidavit, committing perjury.
I lodged a complaint against the lead arresting officer in my case for his blatant perjury under oath, and the current CPS chief signed a long-delayed report that whitewashed the officer’s lies. As such, the investigating officer and the current Calgary Police Chief became complicit in the abduction and abuse of my four-year-old child for purposes of extortion. This pattern of CPS corruption and brutality appears endemic to the Calgary Police Service and its oversight bodies. Deceit and Delay are the governing principles of CPS oversight – a disgrace!
At this time there is no downside for criminal conduct by CPS officers, including false charges, collaboration in child abduction, child abuse and extortion – these false CPS charges add to police statistics of alleged spousal abuse and justify the hiring more CPS officers to abuse the public and egregiously breach the Rule of Law. Even the brutal beatings and shootings of Calgarians by CPS officers typically go unpunished.
“Only 13 per cent of CPS members feel morale is "good" at work, according to the employee satisfaction survey released by the Calgary Police Commission (CPC).“ Given the routine criminal misconduct that as described above within a thuggish minority of CPS officers, it is not surprising that the great majority of CPS officers exhibit low morale. No honest police officer wants to be associated with and defined by brutal criminals and thugs.
While I believe that most CPS officers are honest and hard-working, the dominant CPS culture is one of brutality, deceit, delay and corruption. It is evident that there is no ethical, competent oversight of the CPS by its senior management or it’s civilian review bodies.
To be clear, I will not tolerate further deceit and delay tactics by the CPS. I want a public written response by the CPS Chief of Police stating his position on this matter – whether he continues to support the perjury, child abduction, child abuse and extortion committed by his officers or whether he accepts the malfeasance of his officers and agrees to prosecute the criminal conduct of CPS officers and attempt to make amends for this malfeasance and harm.
I make no threats – violence is against my ethics and my religion. I will reject any attempt to falsely charge me with harassment or other such criminal abuse of the legal process by the CPS or the Crown prosecutors office. I do not want to any CPS officers to approach me or any of my family members or my ex-wife or her sister – both these women seem to have greatly improved their conduct and I will view all such approaches as further attempts at intimidation and abuse of my young daughter.
I will not accept another deceit-and-delay approach by the CPS – I request a significant written public response from the CPS Chief of Police within 30 days from the publishing date of this letter.
Yours truly, Allan MacRae, Calgary
