Michael Pengue is the producer of the online film Montreal,
Next Terror Target?, he is also a co-founder of the Montreal 9/11 Truth
group- mtl911truth.org. He is a native
of Montreal, first generation Canadian of Italian born parents.
Two years after the events of 9/11, his friend, Kenneth Fernandez, expressed a very strong suspicion that 9/11 was an inside-job. From 2003 he read books and articles by Michael Ruppert, David Griffin, Daniel Hopsicker, Sander Hicks, Michel Chossudovsky and watched countless documentaries. In 2004, he joined the Canadian Action Party and shortly after became a member of their executive team (until early 2008 when I resigned as vice-president only to continue as a member and supporter of CAP). At the International Citizens’ Inquiry into 9/11 in Toronto, he met Ruppert and others and that drove him to be more active. Just a few weeks later his picture made it in the Montreal Gazette standing in front of the Montreal’s Imperial Theatre for the premiere of Michael Moore’s film ”Fahrenheit 9/11”carrying a sandwich-board reading ” 9/11 Was an Inside Job” and on the flip side “Fahrenheit 911 is Just the Tip of the Iceberg.” He handed out countless leaflets to the large crowd waiting in line for the theater doors to open and to a sympathetic Gazette photographer.
In 2006, he organized his first 9/11 film screening in a Montreal conference hall. In the summer of 2007 he initiated the creation of The Montreal 9/11 Truth Website for the 1st 9/11 speaker event in Montreal when Webster Tarpley and Connie Fogal, leader of the Canadian Action Party, came to town to speak to a full house in downtown Montreal.
In early 2008, the release of their first documentary film entitled “Montreal, The Next Terror Target?” which he narrated and researched, and which generated an overwhelming response from people motivated to get involved.
From that point onward, in terms of regular participation, everything seemed to progressively get better for them. Since then they have been meeting on a weekly basis to work on their first 9/11 film screening at a university. In June of 2008, they had a full house at a conference with David Ray Griffin chaired by Michel Chossudovsky.
Kenneth Fernandez is a political consultant influenced by the political legacy of Pierre Elliott Trudeau. He has two law degrees from McGill University and an exceptional grasp of history and foreign affairs. He ran for the Canadian Action Party in the federal elections of 2000 and 2004 in the district of Saint-Laurent-Cartierville. He spoke at the 2004 Toronto Citizens’ Inquiry Into 9/11. He also did much of the research for the film “Montreal, The Next Terror Target?“
Robert Lewis is a Montreal writer and filmmaker. He is the author of Gaj: The End of Religion (2004), a book on spiritual philosophy, and the director of the documentary Be Smile: The Stories of Two Urban Inuit(2006), which chronicles the lives of two Inuit men living homeless on the streets of Montreal. In 2007 he travelled to Ground Zero for the 9/11 anniversary to interview activists for his documentary short The Documentary of the 9/11 Truth Movement. For the past year, he has been very active with Montreal 9/11 Truth, and one of the main organizers of the March on Ottawa for 9/11 Truth in support of a Canadian 9/11 investigation, an event scheduled for 7 – 11 September 2008.
Drew Noftle is a co-founder of the Vancouver 9/11 Truth Society (vancouver911truth.org), was a chief organizer for the Vancouver 9/11 Truth Conference, and helped bring dozens of 9/11 researchers to Vancouver to speak at sold out events.
He is now helping to take 9/11 Truth across the country with the 2008 Truth Tour, and the March on Ottawa (www.marchonottawa2008.org). The goals: to unite the movement across the country and start the ground work in creating an independent Canadian investigation into 9/11.
In September of 2001, Drew Noftle was living in Vancouver Canada and had just finished his second year of Marketing Management in College. Tired of the slow life in Vancouver, Drew then decided to move down to San Francisco to meet up with some Canadian friends who were already there, and start anew. Then 9/11 happened.
In the days following 9/11, the Canadian US border was closed for the first time in history, and his plans to move south had to be aborted. Not understanding at all what had happened, and still discontent with life in Canada, he made a quick decision to move to China, and meet up with some friends in Dandong, Liaoning — the northeastern Chinese city that borders North Korea.
After living a few months there, he knew China was to become his new home. He traveled around a bit and eventually made Beijing his home, and spent the next three years studying Mandarin Chinese.
Then in winter 2005, his roommate convinced him to watch a clip of Building 7. This clip literally blew him away. Not wanting to accept the fact of 9/11 being an inside job, he then spent a few months studying online, and came to find out for himself what the War of Terror was really all about.
Drew returned to Vancouver in October 2006, and began to work with the existing network of 9/11 Truth activists. They are now a strong group and an inspiration to the growing global Truth Movement.
