Well, isn’t this typical Toronto behaviour… Yet another “free speech” group steps forward asking Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty for another inquiry into the “squashing of free speech” during the G20 summit in Toronto this summer.
Hell yeah. A 5th enquiry. Yeah.
I am sick and tired of this bullshit that had come from the G20. I’m tired of the media and these self-rightous interest groups picking on the police. I’m tired of seeing pictures in the newspaper, on the Internet and on TV of these looters and rioters showing me pictures of their bruises and cuts under the guise of police brutality, and I’m certainly tired of the domination of left-wing media views on the G20.
How is it possible that every person on TV, or shown in the media were innocent individuals, doing nothing, staying out of the way?? What? I’m stupid and going to belive that the police just happened to see innocent people standing on the sidewalks and came over to beat them? Come on guys. Really.
Well, to that request for a 5th inquiry, Dalton told them to go to hell and for that I respect him.
So now I want Dalton to stand up for the other side in this equation. In fairness, 5 enquiries investigating the police and none looking at the public who caused all this chaos. No inquiries into the groups that threatened violence and that required a LOT of money being spent on security in order to protect the G20 leaders. No investigation into who these Black Block hooligans were, what they do for a living and charging them for the violence they committed damaging properties in the streets of Toronto that we (and probably not them) call home.
No investigation into the University of Toronto who not only housed the “protestors” but also hid them when the police came.
What about an investigation into the crowds of people who lit police cars on fire and who threw things at the police and the police horses. Where is the public enquiry into this?
It’s so easy to have a cause that is against something, but notice that no one is stepping forward to protect the interests of the business owners and the taxpayers.
Well the buck stops here. I’m sending an email to Dalton, and one to Conservative leader Tim Hudek. I want an inquiry!
No more photos of protestors. No more stories of harassment. No more “innocent”, sad, hurt people in the papers.
I said to a left-wing friend of mine, very calmly, that seeing what I did on TV, I made the choice to stay home and not risk being arrested or mistaken for someone who the police might want to arrest during this very tense time. If I want to have my voice heard to “big business” or “government” I call them or write an email. I don’t take to the streets and damage others property because last time I checked that was against the law.
I’m sorry folks. We still have our voices – more than in most places in the world, and to think we need to take to the streets in this manner was a poor choice. What kind of a person took to the streets to “protest”?
This kind of person;
A 41-year-old man from Windsor, the first person charged for burning a police car. A 41 year old man who lives with his parents and has… 17 prior convictions. Yeah, he came to protest. I’m sure he was just there to voice his concerns about the welfare of citizens in some countries where if you protest you run the risk of being shot. I’m sure he really cares about all that, or more likely, he came downtown hoping to get in trouble, to break into a store, get in a fight and, hey, burn a police car.
