Here in BC, we appreciate any and all support for this issue..but where is the rest of the country on all the damage this MonsterCon has caused? They can’t all be the drooling knuckle-draggers of Ford Nation, but I have to wonder if it isn’t already too late…the people of Canada, in general, seem so passive that they come across as catatonic..
Where is the energy to fight? I remember back in the 70’s hitting the bricks on a regular basis to fight Trudeau’s price and wage controls, to protest war, to stop the Forestry Creeps from denuding the landscape..now, where is the fight in this country?
I hope you are right, Simon, that the people will rise up, but have to admit I fear the worst..still, BC is very militant when threatened, and if we have to do it alone, so be it…
And anyone who thinks that it’s impossible for a North American leader to use the Armed Forces against their own people need only look to the South, anyone out there remember Kent State, where students protesting the war were gunned down, murdered by the National Guard?…not to mention our own Mounties, who often seem to have entirely lost respect for the people they swear to serve..the police have also become tools in the arsenal of the 1%….somehow we’ll have to be up against that, as well..
June’s ‘announcement’ (a fait accompli) will only be the beginning of a long hot summer of fightback…may we all have the courage and determination to stop this insanity.
