January 6, 1941 - May 18, 2017
If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
A giant in the Canadian OPCA sphere has passed, and, like the proverbial tree, nobody seems to have noticed. Nothing. I've checked the internet and all I've found is this;
Six months dead and not a word. Shabby, shabby treatment. Eldon Warman was a key actor in the inception of the Canadian Freeman movement, he provided the theoretical background. It's been the position of some academic writers, wel at least one, that Menard got most of his ideas from Warman and the Detax movement that Warman started in the late 1990's. But there is no mention whatever about it in his obit. No real personal history at all. Just that he existed, had family, and some died before him, some survived him. But Eldon even rated a detailed mention in Meads v Meads!
d. Eldon Gerald Warman
 Eldon Gerald Warman [“Warman”] is a “Detaxer”; he operates the “http://www.detaxcanada.org/” website. Warman typically styles himself via the ‘dash-colon’ motif as “Eldon-Gerald: Warman”. He has a historic association with Lindsay: R. v. Warman, 2001 BCCA 510; Warman (Re), 2000 ABPC 181, 48 W.C.B. (2d) 194. His stated beliefs combine the “natural man” scheme of Porisky and Lindsay, with an emphasis on historical common law and the interrelationship between the king and society, such as the Magna Carta. A helpful survey of Warman’s concepts is found in R. v. Warman, 2001 BCCA 510 at paras. 9-10.
 In 2000 Warman had a roadside encounter with a peace officer who attempted to
investigate the permit status for Warman’s vehicle. That led to an assault on the officer for which Warman was subsequently convicted: R. v. Warman, 2000 BCPC 22, affirmed 2001 BCCA 510. Warman had denied the officer’s authority because “... issuing tickets at the side of the road is to conduct a roving court not permitted by Section 17 of Magna Carta.”: para. 36. These roadside confrontations between peace officers and OPCA community members are a reported aspect of OPCA litigation, for example in R. v. Kaasgaard, 2011 MBQB 256.
 Mr. Warman has been the subject of complaints of racist and anti-Semitic statements that were considered by the Canadian Human Rights Commission: Warman v. Warman, 2005 CHRT 36; Warman v. Warman, 2005 CHRT 43. The other “Warman” here is not a relative but instead is Richard Warman, a person who frequently advances human rights complainants. The former decision at para. 12 reproduces certain relevant passages from the “detaxcanada.org” website:
YOU ARE BEING SUBJECTED TO HIGH TREASON
Judges are primary factor in this TREASON against the Canadian people
Canadian judges are using an American produced "Anti-Government Movement Guidebook" to deprive sovereign Canadians of their God Given Rights within the de facto corporate commercial Canadian court system - controlled by the Inner Temple of the `City of London, a hostile foreign entity.
 The CHRC continues at para. 12:
The threat is palpable. A box states: "you have a right to use deadly force to stop these unlawful acts against you". There are dark suggestions that the sovereignty of the people should be restored.
 Warman’s current status is uncertain. The ‘detaxcanada.org’ website remains, however there is no recent Alberta legal proceeding that involves this person.
There are a number of reviews of Eldon's history on the internet, this one from 2007 is as good as any since he did litle after this time;
Eldon Warman is a self-styled detax guru living in Calgary Canada.
In 1984 while, living in Benica California, he was convicted of tax evasion. Later that same year Mr. Warman was dismissed from his position as an American Airlines pilot for insubordination. On December 12th of that year Warman's wife, Chavala, committed suicide by hanging herself with an electrical extension cord, leaving Mr. Warman with two teen-aged children, Brent and Marla. Based on an Geraldo Rivera expose he claims to have seen Warman asserts that the IRS killed his wife and has since fantasized that Washington, DC would be bombed "off the face of this Earth" by the Russians.
In early 2000 Mr. Warman was convicted of assaulting a British Columbia Provincial Transport Inspector who had pulled over the tour bus Warman was operating. When summonsed to appear in court Warman sent the court an affidavit denying its jurisdiction and didn't show up for his trial.
A few days later the police came to Eldon's house, arrested him and held him until trial. Despite Eldon's arguments in court and a March 3, 2000 bomb scare, widely believed to have been called in by Warman's sympathizers (http://groups.google.com/group/can.taxe ... 537?hl=en&) the court convicted him of assault: (http://www.canlii.org/en/bc/bcpc/doc/20 ... cpc22.html.)Warman's 2001 appeal of his assault conviction was also unsuccessful: (http://www.courts.gov.bc.ca/jdb-txt/ca/ ... CA0510.htm.)
In March of 2001 Mr. Warman embarrassed his de-tax colleagues when his fervent anti-Semitic sentiments were made public by Kim Bolan of the Vancouver Sun causing him to be removed from the speakers list at Vancouver's "Freedom Fest", a gathering of like minded de-taxers.
Since 1998 Mr. Warman has developed a number of detax "methods" claiming each removed the user from the jurisdiction of the courts. Each method failed resulting their user's tax reassessments and tax evasion conviction. Most notable, was the 2002 conviction of Jean Proteau said to be a devoted follower of Mr. Warman and a dedicated user of Warman's Constructive Notice Method:
(http://www.canlii.org/en/sk/skpc/doc/20 ... pc119.html).
After several years of anti-Semetic screeds across various internet news groups Mr. Warman's postings were brought to the attention of the Canadian Human Rights Commission, in 2004, who charged him with hate speech crimes under Canadian law. True to form, Mr. Warman refused to answer his summons, this time denying the court's jurisdiction by citing his newest borrowed theory which claims that the family name on birth certificates creates a government straw men for whom self declared "free willed men", such as he, are not responsible. Warman went so far as to threaten to kill a process server who served him with court documents. In September 2005 Mr. Warman, tried in absentia, was found guilty of hate speech crimes http://www.chrt-tcdp.gc.ca/search/view_ ... &isruli....
Google removed his offending messages and he was ordered to "to cease the discriminatory practice of posting messages or other material on the internet that is likely to expose Jews or any other member of an identifiable racial, religious or ethnic group to hatred or contempt." Since that time Eldon Warman has posted across the internet as "Vicegerent" and has toned down his anti-Semtic rhetoric. (http://can.taxes.narkive.com/k6ztL23e/p ... tax-method).
This is Eldon's Human Rights Commission hearing decision;
Warman v. Warman
2005 CHRT 36
And this is the comment that impressed the Commission the most;
 The most disturbing message is at p. 131 of the transcript:
MS. PHILLIPS: Why don't you read the last paragraph, then, Mr. Warman.
[RICHARD] WARMAN: The last paragraph states:
Joe the JewBoy, Thanks for bringing back this reminder for the People of Canada and the United States to read and refresh their memory of what your NAZI-ZIONIST JEWS have done to the People of America. It's too bad we don't have a greater need for soap and lampshades, but, I suppose it would be difficult to get the stench of pig shit out of that slimy fat.
THE CHAIRPERSON: Let's be clear about this. What is this reference -- I think I understand. This is someone else posting a message that Eldon Warman had sent in the past? That's what it seems to be.
MS PHILLIPS: It seems to me that Joe, this person with a very long e-mail, re-posted a previous posting by Mr. Warman within the thread of this bulletin board, and he has brought it back to the attention of the people who are currently discussing on the bulletin board to give them an idea of who Mr. Eldon Warman is, and then at the part that Mr. Richard Warman just read out, Mr. Eldon Warman is thanking him for bringing back the reminder to the people of Canada.
THE CHAIRPERSON: So there is some kind of debate or discussion taking place, and someone else goes back and posts this previous message from Eldon Warman -- and that is his message -- and then, of course, Mr. Eldon Warman comes back again and responds to that particular posting. I think I understand.
MR. [RICHARD] WARMAN: Yes.
The Richard Warman testifying against Eldon was not a relative. Just a random surname connection.
This was Eldon's famed website;
It has all the programming skills that you'd expect a guy in his 50's to have had in the 1990's.In other words, none. But we CRA types followed it, some to see what Eldon was up to, others (guilty!) for laughs.
As far as I'm aware Eldon was born in Canada, flew for the RCAF in the late fifties, then moved to the United States to fly for United Airlines, They fired him in 1984 and he came back to Canada after his tax evasion conviction. Then he shared his craziness with us. Including Quatloos's own administrator Wserra way, way back sixteen years ago!
So, in the absence of any recognition or respect from the Freeman community, I'll give the proper obit entry for Eldon;
The Canadian Detax movement started in the late 1990's and was built on the back of the American sovereign theories with Eldon as the critical link. Robert Menard took this material and ran with it to create the Freeman movement in Canada. However Eldon, the elder statesman of the movement, got lost in anti-semitic craziness and couldn't recover to take his proper place in the Freeman pantheon. Detax, Eldon's own movment, died after the repeated and total failures by Eldon and his followers to actually detax anyone.
