Though this appears to be a bit off topic for the Tundra Tabloids, it isn’t. The situation in Caledonia Canada, which involves the strong arm tactics of local hard-Left radicals, aboriginal criminals and fundamentalist Muslims while a feckless police department looks the other way, needs to be widely reported.
Besides, this looks to be a mirror image of what’s happening elsewhere across Europe. The reluctance of local government and law officials to step in and do the right thing, due to their ‘knee-jerk’ adherence to political correctness, is both condemnable and an outrage.
By their lack of interest in honestly pursuing the truth in the matter, local Caledonian government and law officials are setting the stage for even more aggressive tactics by the group just mentioned, against the local populace and perhaps emboldening other similar outbreaks across Canada. KGS
Vlad: Another speaker from the Caledonia night at Free Thinking Film Societies night on the issue. This is the former mayor of Haldimand county talking about her frustration attempting to get the Ontario police and Ontario government to uphold Canadian law
Mark Vandermaas comments at the TT:
Thanks so much for the coverage! Thanks to Vlad for getting the word out, too. We got up a feature page for our notes (mine has 22 pages of reference citations to back up what I said in my presentation.):
Be sure to read the refs in my presentation notes starting from 2-22 on, beginning on p28. http://helplessbyblatchford.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/110322-part1-2-mark-vandermaas-victims-issues-w-citations1.pdf
Here’s one quote I just know you’ll enjoy; it’s from Jamila Ghaddar of the McMaster University ‘Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights’ which was on the Caledonia occupation site almost from the beginning of the lawlessness, and was there when the Niagara Palestinian Association raised the Palestinian flag on the site on May 03/06:
“One of the proudest moments in the lives of McMaster SPHR [Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights] and my life and the Palestinian Solidarity Movement was the day that the Palestinian flag was raised over the reclamation site. That day the Niagara Palestinian Association along with the Haudenosaunee people, hoisted and raised the Palestinian flag alongside the flags of the Haudenosaunee, of various other countries, of unions and many organizations. In the months following, through cold and moments of exhaustion and worry we would raise our eyes to the swaying of the flags and think, we are one, and the winds carry our colours together from Jerusalem to the Grand River.”
Ghaddar also spoke at an anti-Israel protest in 2008 organized by ‘Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid’ which sent delegates to the 2007 Cairo conference where they met reps from Hamas, Hezbollah, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and the Muslim Brotherhood:
So…what I’m trying to say is…you got your title exactly right!
