Tim Hudak sends a letter to Ontario Attorney General John Gerretsen, asking him to appeal the Richard Smoke sentence. Despite nearly killing Mr. Gualtieri in Caledonia, Smoke got less than two years jail time. If this isn’t appealed, this will be the start of more Native vs Non-Native racism. My comment to Gerretsen? Do your job. You are the Attorney General, at least get an appeal going, or you and your Liberal friends are to blame for more racist tensions in Caledonia. I will follow up with a stronger post if this appeal is not done, as today is the last official day to file an appeal.
With the City of Brantford and Brantford Police actually willing to enforce the law, the terrorist protestors in charge of HDI and the Caledonia situation once again turned to violence, punching an officer with his friends around him and running like a pussy. But are you surprised? These are the same people who sit with guns on the Caledonia land site and have been intimidating citizens and keeping Dalton McChicken and his wimpy sidekick, Julian Fantino, on the sidelines looking like complete tards while they attempt to dictate the agenda.
When local citizens have finally had enough terrorism and say something, the police go against the citizens, not the terrorists. At least in Caledonia. In Brantford, Brantford Police have finally dispensed some justice yesterday. 38 year old Dwayne Scott Maracle is charged with assault, resisting arrest, obstructing police, and mischief in relation to the protest above. The Pussy Protestor who punched the officer is still being sought.
Today is the last day convenience stores can legally show you smokes on a wall before you can buy them. As of midnight tonight, smokers will have to thumb through a binder, like they were about to purchase adult movies, in order to get their smokes.
Unless, of course, you’re driving down to the Native reserves, where they have been illegally selling smokes for years. Without ID or even clearly underage, Native smoke shops will sell anyone any smokes, and other goods; legal or not. So when you have to go through your binder tomorrow to ask for those Number 7 King Size; Remember to thank your Premier for making you feel like you’re buying a porn DVD. And is the Ministry of Health enforcing the same rules on Native shops? Of course not. Welcome to McGuinty’s Ontario.
Local grower Charles Emre has recently run into trouble with the Ministry of Transporation in regards to his roadside signs.
Emre has been running his families farm on Lynnville Road and Hwy 24 since 1982. Last year, one of his “Asparagus For Sale” signs was taken down by the province of Ontario. This year, Emre parked his sign on private property near Highway 24. The property owner that allowed Mr. Emre to put his sign on the property has since received a letter threatening punitive action from the Ministry of Transportation. Here’s the catch, if Emre lived on Norfolk Highway 24, south of Simcoe, he would be allowed to put up a sign, because that part of the highway belongs to the County of Norfolk, and not McGuintyland — I mean, Ontario.
Since when did Ontario start discriminating against farmers? Everyone sees produce signs on the road every year; it’s a right of passage for summer. Emre rightly calls the treatment unfair, especially since he pays the same taxes as anyone else in Norfolk. Norfolk Mayor Dennis Travale says the Ministry of Transportation support farmers and allow them to do their job, and is advocating for Emre as well.
