Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons vs James Sears


In 1993 James Sears AKA Dimitri the Lover, editor of Your Ward News lost his license to practice medicine after numerous complaints of sexual misconduct.

The complaints against Sears include a spree of sexual harassment against multiple female patients, including masturbating in one of their washrooms while on a house call.

Sears’ license to be a Mortgage Broker was also refused in 2008


Sears was formerly associated with the now defunct Trillium Mortgage, and it’s now suspected that he’s working for Expert Mortgage:

“We swear.. We’re not actually Nazis”

Since James Sears AKA Dimitri the Lover has taken over as editor, Your Ward News has gone into full reactionary persecution complex mode. We’ve seen less content from YWN regulars like Nazi scumbag Gary Schipper, AKA J.J. (although he’s now listed as a “Senior Journalist“) and Nazi/Paul Bernardo fan Michelle Erstikiatis, and the newspaper has almost exclusively become an outlet for James Sears to promote himself, his anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and his hopeless fantasy of political office (we can’t help but wonder if Leroy is being muscled or manipulated out?).

Sears’ conspiracy theories have become personal lately, and he now thinks the Zio-Marxist hoards have the Post Office, the NDP, the Liberal Party, the unions, and even local graffiti artists working together to silence him. With this level of organization, surely the Bolsheviks will be kicking our doors down any minute, demanding collective use of your toothbrush for the globalist proletariat.

Sears has offered a free dinner with himself (more like a punishment than a prize) to anyone who can decipher a word spray painted above “Nazi fuck” which someone recently scrawled on the office window of YWN at 163 Main St. Far from being part of a union led terror campaign, it looks like the graffiti was done by a local tagger who goes by ‘Sherm‘. How unbelievable is it that people in the community would want to vandalize your office window if you publish a Nazi newspaper, and make your address public? It had to have been part of an elaborate conspiracy! While we support the act, and couldn’t care less about the property rights of Nazi degenerates, we can’t take responsibility for this little tag.

This month‘s wrap blames Israel and the CIA for 9/11, and continues into some Rothschild conspiracy theories about the monetary system and assassinations. And of course, voting for Sears will keep the lizard people at bay.


Apparently YWN publisher Leroy is Metis, so it looks like he’s trying to pull some liberal identity politics bullshit by now stating boldly on the front page that the newspaper is “METIS OWNED & OPERATED SINCE 2007”. The publishers of this blog are against colonialism, and stand in solidarity with ingenious struggles whenever possible, but we also recognize that belonging to a certain group doesn’t mean that you can’t also be a racist piece of shit. It’s pretty funny that Leroy and YWN constantly go off against what they perceive as leftism and political correctness, and then adopt the kind of meaningless identity politicking that liberal leftists are notorious for. Leroy certainly doesn’t represent Metis people, and most would likely be disgusted by his racism, bigotry, and support for Nazis. I’d be curious to know what Metis lineage Leroy claims, and if his kinfolk are aware of his Nazi affiliated newspaper claiming to be Metis? Sorry Leroy, but being Metis doesn’t give your Nazi fuckary a “pass” or deflect the rightful criticism you’re getting. That’s shitty ID politics 101.


Much like Leroy’s abuse of Metis identity, James Sears frequently claims solidarity with Palestinians.


The publishers of this blog also stand in solidarity with Palestinians in their struggle against colonialism and violent dispossession. But what separates us from people like James Sears is our motivation. While we see the violence of political Zionism as an appendage of western colonialism, and not representative of Jewish people as a large and diverse group(s), Sears uses the cynical logic of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”, seeing Palestinians as hopeful allies or possibly a wedge issue, and constructing conspiracy theories about “bloodthirsty Zionist Talmudic Jews” and stating “Jews are obsessed with myths about gas chambers and ovens. But there is one REAL oven that the Zionist Talmudic Jews … should be worried about: GOD’S OVEN! It is called HELL and it is where they are going to go if they do not immediately repent for their sins and accept Jesus Christ into their hearts.”

This writer has years of experience doing Palestinian solidarity activism in Toronto, and has personally chased away Nazi scumbags like Sears who thought they could infiltrate the movement and spread anti-Semitism, only to find Palestinians and Jews and people from all backgrounds working together against colonialism and racism.

Sears is closer ideologically to the Kahanists who burned Ali Dawabsha to death (except for Sears’ conspiracy theories about Jews of course) than any Palestinians he deceitfully claims solidarity with.

Oh.. and here’s Sears making crude racial/sexual remarks about Olivia Chow..



The whole farce of “free speech” and “political satire” is transparent to anyone paying attention. We’ve been reading Your Ward News critically for about a year now (yes, it’s been nauseating), and have documented on this blog numerous accounts of racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, incitement to hatred against immigrants, and support for known Nazis. These examples, in their tone, context, and frequency couldn’t possibly be considered political satire. Anyone who, after looking at the evidence, comes to the defense of YWN and/or James Sears, is either willfully ignorant, or supportive of their bigotry (or both).

As if YWN wasn’t enough of a gong show, Toronto conspiracy theorist creep Lawrence McCurry recently jumped into the mix. McCurry is vaguely known by some in Toronto for showing up at activist events looking like inspector gadget, claiming to be a journalist, and taking voyeuristic pictures of people with the likes of Greg Renouf.


In addition to being hilarious looking and writing terribly, McCurry shares Leroy/Sears’ passion for Marxist conspiracy theories, and he recently wrote an article defending YWN and posted a supportive interview with James Sears to his Youtube channel:

McCurry is a big Rob Ford fan, and thinks the Lac-Megantic train derailment was a “false flag” carried out by “globalist elites”.

We sent some info to McCurry about Sears and Leroy’s connections to well known Nazis, and articles promoting racism and misogyny etc, but he’s convinced that YWN are some kind of anti-establishment heroes being persecuted by the Zio-Marxist conspiracy. So whether McCurry’s support for this hate group is based on fantasy conspiracy based affinity, or just McCurry’s bad genes and stupidity, it’s clear that Lawrence is a Nazi supporting piece of shit like his buddies at the newspaper.

Clearly Anti-Semitic Front Page – Still Delivered By Canada Post

The front page of August’s issue of YWN featured a green skinned “Rothschild” puppateering various political candidates. The cartoon prominently features a Star of David, and implies that Jews are somehow conspiring to control all politicians, and thus our lives.


Also, James Sears recently tweeted an endorsement of blackface as a measure of freedom…


Promotes the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn in Greece, and then advocates rape in consecutive tweets…


I’m admittedly getting a bit tired of endlessly documenting the undeniably fascist, racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-immigrant bullshit coming out of 163 Main St. I think with this months over the top incitement to hatred against Jewish people front cover, Canada Post will have a hard time remaining “neutral” and continuing to distribute this. We just might have to give them a little push.

The newspaper is apparently so rotten that some postal workers have gotten a rash from handling it


Delivered by Canada post or by hand, some of us in the community are committed to seeing that these scumbags aren’t left to fester, and we will keep the pressure on them until they disappear completely.

Incitement To Hatred Against Immigrants, Bizarre Infighting, And More Holocaust Denial

This month’s YWN includes an article that repeatedly refers to immigrants as “parasites” and blames immigration for crime, pollution, illness, gridlock, high housing costs, taxes, high food prices, bad DNA, and a lack of farmland. It also proposes walled concentration camps for refugees in Canada.

In another article about James Sears’ bizarre fallout with Star Ray TV and the cancellation of his TV show, Sears refers to a woman of colour as a “negress”.

We might have agreed with the article criticizing the Canadian government for its genocidal policies against aboriginal peoples, except that it was written by despicable white supremacist Gary Schipper under his pseudonym J.J. I’m not sure what angle they’re playing, but somehow I doubt that this well known Nazi is sincere in his ostensible support for aboriginal peoples.

And then there was the article decrying Canada’s new spying bill (C-51) written by Arthur Smitherman (George Smitherman’s weird Rob Ford loving brother). It puts us in a strange position when these racist scumbags take positions similar to ours in opposition to things like the residential school system and government spying. It’s worth taking a minute to reflect on the nature of right wing populism. Much like Rob Ford’s campaign rhetoric or other hysterical right wing quacks like Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh or Alex Jones, Your Ward News and Sears’ political club try to frame themselves as some kind of anti-establishment force for social change. Some of the concerns they raise are legitimate such as social insecurity, political corruption, government spying, and atrocities committed by the Canadian government, etc. But instead of finding in these legitimate problems a coherent political (or anti-political) critique and potential solutions that are actionable, YWN turns to scapegoating immigrants, Jews, women, people of colour, and the poor, and spins grandiose conspiracy theories about ZioMarxists, FemiNazis and municipal politicians working with unions to stymie your freedom. Dont get us wrong – most of the issues YWN raises are pure fantasy and don’t deserve any analysis. And of the few legitimate concerns they do raise, not only do they offer no actual solution, but they offer Neo-Fascist populism as a “solution”. So buy more newspapers and join the NCP to help Native people and stop bill C-51? Thankfully, very few people are stupid enough to believe in this kind of absurd and hateful nonsense. But YWN is still delivering their racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant newspaper to thousands of homes in the Beach(es), so we’ll continue reading it, exposing them, and working to shut them down.

In closing, here’s some holocaust denial and conspiracy theory cray cray from Leroy’s facebook:

And James Sears encouraging you to watch the pro-Nazi propaganda “documentary” film ‘Hell Storm’:

Child Abuse?

James Sears AKA Dimitri the Lover, editor in chief of Your Ward News, and Holocaust denying, misogynist, homophobic, scumbagxenophobe is unfortunately a father.

It’s disturbing that anyone would breed with such a lowlife. But possibly even more disturbing is that Sears is using his infant son as an avatar for his neo-fascist politics. This picture was recently posted by Sears to his twitter account. In the caption, Sears compares his infant son to Hitler. This is the same twitter account that Sears uses to give instructions on how to rape women, and to deny the Nazi Holocaust, among other insane bullshit.


In last months Your Ward News, Sears’ partner and the Mother of his son was credited for an article that described the role of women in Sears’ misogynist political fantasy. It was a piece promoting “traditional” patriarchal gender roles, with men being at the forefront of social and political life, and with women playing a subdued and “supportive” role as unpaid caregivers, nurturers, and domestic servants.

“…the NCP has no official “active” role for women”

For most people who’ve ever put serious thought into the concept of gender, unless they’re blinded by religion, ideology, or a desire to maintain power over others; it’s clear that patriarchal gender roles are devices that have been socially constructed over time, not only to establish and maintain men’s subjugation of women, but also to reduce men to a narrow set of “inherent” characteristics which serve the interests of those in power.

It’s sad and concerning that Sears is using his family to promote his fascism and misogyny. We won’t assume that Sears’ partner is a victim or that she is being manipulated. Perhaps she is, in which case we hope she gets the help she needs to leave. Or perhaps her internalized sexism and support for fascism is independent and considered (in whatever way such bankrupt ideas can be “considered”). What kind of a person would marry James Sears? And what kind of life will their son have if he’s being raised to believe that it’s OK to rape women, and that a secret cabal of Marxist Jews are lying about the Holocaust in a conspiracy to control the world?

James Sears Tweets

James Sears aka Dimitri The Lover, the perennial political candidate endorsed and promoted by Your Ward News on most of their recent front pages, has a twitter account. It should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with Sears’ history as a sex offender and a racist anti-Semite that his tweets are super messed up. Sears’ twitter content includes things like: encouraging rape, referring to Russian punk band Pussy Riot as “ZioMarxist CUNTS“, stating that Mike Brown, the recent victim of racist police murder in Ferguson, Missouri “got what he deserved“, and Sears stating that his “two biggest heroes are Jesus and Hitler“.

This is the man Leroy and YWN are fanatically promoting as hopeful future Prime Minister. Obviously Leroy, Sears And YWN are marginalized scumbags, and their political fantasies will never amount to much more than a mid life crisis. But this should give a pretty good idea of the character of YWN and the people associated with it.

To Clear A Few Things Up

We don’t feel like we really have to contend with the views of Leroy St. Germaine and Your Ward News. The lines are pretty clearly drawn for anyone who looks at the evidence. But since Leroy has a tendency to lie, we just thought we’d clarify a few things.

All of the outreach this group has been involved in has been polite and non-confrontational, ie: calling advertisers in the newspaper and talking to venue owners of Leroy’s live music events. We’ve simply provided them with information on Leroy and his racist newspaper, after which they’re left with a decision. We’ve never called Leroy, despite his assertion that some mysterious anonymous caller has been harassing him. As a person who’s openly racist and also publicly publishes his phone number, is he really surprised?

We are not terrorists, nor are we Marxists, LOL. Nothing we have done has been in any way violent, threatening, or illegal. When backed into a corner and confronted with the disgusting and unpopular nature of his ideas, Leroy is calling anyone who opposes him a “terrorist” or “Marxist conspirator” or some other scary McCarthyist slur.

It’s sad that Leroy is tokenizing the few people of colour who will associate with him, and it’s sad that these few still cling to him. But having a black friend doesn’t make one “not racist.” How many times have we heard old white men proclaim that “I can’t be anti-Semitic, my wife is half Jewish!” or “look, I’m nice to the black person who serves me food… I’m not racist!”. Racism is insidious. When marginalized and seeking broader legitimacy, many of the worst racists and Nazis have been willing to make compromises and work with those they claim to hate. Martin Heidegger had a love affair and friendship with Hannah Arendt who was Jewish, but that didn’t mean that Heidegger wasn’t a despicable Nazi.

Leroy compares his publication to Charlie Hebdo on the basis that both are “controversial,” and to further his persecution complex. While Charlie Hebdo is a left wing satire magazine that makes fun of the far-right, racists and xenophobes; Leroy’s newspaper is a far-right publication that prints polemics attacking immigrants, Jews, women, LGBT folk, and people of colour. There’s really no comparison other than in Leroy’s very active imagination.

We respect Leroy’s right to think and say what he wants. But unfortunately for Leroy, freedom of speech goes both ways. If he wants to publish obscene hatred and bigotry against some of the most vulnerable and oppressed members of society, then those of us who are decent will take it upon ourselves to expose and confront him. We’re not against music either. Quite the contrary. But as long as Leroy uses his live music events to legitimize himself, and to fund his hateful publication, we will make connections between his music events and his racist newspaper, and try to shut them down.

And how odd that Leroy often quotes George Orwell. Is he not aware that Orwell was heavily influenced by anti-authoritarian communism and anarchism? Nobody said Leroy was smart, or consistent though.
