Canadian Town Council is schooled on how 15-minute cities are the gateway to total digital surveillance and control
Last Wednesday, Joel Sussmann spoke about 15-minute cities at a meeting of the Town of Aurora Council, Ontario, Canada. There were 110 Aurora citizens in attendance.
Sussmann explained that 15-minute cities are the gateway to digital IDs, CBDCs, 24/7 surveillance, social credit scores, outlawing of private ownership and more. Once these are in place, “climate lockdowns to be implemented easily, arbitrarily and indefinitely,” he said.
Joel Sussmann is one of the directors of Vaccine Choice Canada, a not-for-profit society which has the aim of protecting informed consent to vaccinations.
Last week, he told the Aurora Town Council what the World Health Organisation (“WHO”), United Nations (“UN”) and World Economic Forum (“WEF”) were planning and how 15-minute smart cities were the gateway to the implementation of those plans.

In the video above, Sussmann began by explaining how international non-governmental organisations (“NGOs”) had subverted local governments. “Restructuring of Canadian mayors and municipalities under the auspices of the United Nations began in 1992,” he said.
Brian Mulroney, who was the Canadian Prime Minister at the time, signed Canada up to the UN Agenda 21. In a previous article, we noted that Professor Delores Cahill described Agenda 21 as the UN’s Agenda for the 21st century. It was published in 1992 and covers the period up to 2099. The UN has spin-off plans for each decade of this century; Agenda 2030, Agenda 2040 etc. The UN is an NGO whose members are unelected.
In 1994, a ‘Municipal Primer’ was issued to all local towns outlining how they were to restructure their governments. The Municipal Primer is the Agenda 21 guidebook for municipalities. Although it was non-binding, all Canadian towns adopted it, Sussmann said.
“Our public officials, the mayor and counsellors of that day, were partnered with a private corporation – the Corporation of the Town of Aurora who appointed a chief administration officer to implement the global agenda instead of a local one. The International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (“ICLEI”) became the main source of consultation to push and fund the global agenda,” Sussmann explained.
The UN’s Local Governments for Sustainability (“ICLEI”), formerly called the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, promotes Agenda 21 and its “sustainable development.” It was established when more than 200 local governments from 43 countries convened at its inaugural conference, the ‘World Congress of Local Governments for a Sustainable Future’, at the UN in New York in September 1990.
As of 2023, more than 2,500 cities, towns, and counties’ local governments in more than 125 countries form a part of the ICLEI network. Originally, ICLEI was headquartered in Toronto, Canada, but it is now headquartered in Bonn, Germany. It has more than 20 offices around the world with a training centre in Freiburg, Germany.
In June 2019, a UN-WEF Strategic Partnership Framework was signed to accelerate the implementation of Agenda 2030. WEF represents private corporate interests.
“This is the same World Economic Forum whose chairman Klaus Schwab famously declared: ‘You will own nothing and be happy’. This is the same Klaus Schwab who referring to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau boasted: ‘We have penetrated more than half of his cabinet’,” Sussmann said.
“Why should the citizens of Aurora bow down to the intrusive dictates of an unelected foreign entity?
“The fact is, we should not. And we will not.”
What does this all have to do with smart cities? It has absolutely everything to do with smart cities, Sussmann told the council. And explained that SMART is an acronym for Surveillance, Monitoring, Analysis, Reporting and Technology.
He quoted Patrick Wood – an expert on sustainable development, green economy, Agenda 21 and 2030 Agenda – who described 15-minute cities as:
The 15-minute city is a cover for a data collection bonanza for Technocrats who would design and operate them. Cities designed for maximum “efficiency” always reveal Technocrat thinking that efficiency itself is the goal, and that maximum surveillance allows for maximum control to achieve even more efficiency. At its very root, this mechanistic thinking is anti-human.
