The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.
~ John F. Kennedy
The LiveWord? Interweb of Canuckistan project is an independent endeavour that was originally intended for the people of Canada to share information and opinions about current events but has expanded to include global events and issues as well. We launched as an English based site and were initially looking for ways to add French and First Nations language versions along with support and original content from across Canada. Please note that as we begin 2013, we must reflect upon the entirety of recently past events as they form into the future and as we all progress into the unknown let us all commit to one thing, that we remain #IdleNoMore!
Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.

What began as a novelty official launch date of 11 January 2011 ended up rapidly evolving into a multilingual resource thus becoming immersed into the global community before reaching the national community. The events that have followed are remarkable and unimaginable. The peaceful and bloody uprising in Tunisia caught our attention and made us realize that the People of Tunisia were just like us in far too many ways to ignore. As we began to share the information during the uprising and resistance we formed a bond with the “Peaceful Global Revolution of 2011″ and embraced many non-traditional and unknown independent journalists, groups and resources and shared their unique insight.
The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect.
~ Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director and inventor of the World Wide Web
Once the peaceful revolutions became violent, bloody and oppressive in Tunisia and Egypt we began to assist in anyway we could. We continued to embrace new sources that were closer to the ground and could relay and share current events in real time through non-traditional and via alternative means. As the Arab Spring. Jasmine Uprisings continued in North Africa and across the Middle East the international bridge that we have build has become stronger as has our resolve. We will continue to strive to become an even stronger voice for the voiceless throughout the world especially those who are suffering under oppressive censorship and corruption! Many people are affected globally by corrupt politicians, government officials, religious leaders, corporate executives and the like. They are just like us only they are unable to keep contact with each other let alone the outside world. They are simply and slowly being choked off from access to the major US based social network sites and search engines. What that means is that the evidence of any wrong doing as well as real time information effectively does not exist unless it is archived, shared and stored globally.
When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government.
~ Thomas Jefferson
While our methods and source are non-traditional we intend to keep pulling in and pushing out news, information and updates from affected regions so that they and you, may have a reliable alternative access point. We realize that some of the features and/or aspects of our site are imperfect but looking beyond the plainness and in addition to the small amount of original content at this time, we are re-posting real time content and updates from various sources globally in several languages. Some of our sources originate from conflict zones and affected regions globally where the situations are too fluid to worry about the aesthetics of our site. The information is more important to relay and republish at this point so those affected can share information with each other and the world and at the same time those that seek to assist may collaborate.
In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
~ George Orwell
We will not forgive corruption, we will not forget injustice, we will not tolerate the denial of our freedoms, and we will not be silent.
