MARCH FOR FREEDOM answers the question as to why an average, overweight, middle-aged Canadian guy got off the couch to join the fight against two-tiered justice in Ontario. Here’s why I decided to make it…
On October 5th, I went to Brantford, Ontario to listen to Gary McHale, founder of CaledoniaWakeupCall.com talk about the reasons he organized a ‘March for Freedom’ scheduled to take place in Caledonia, Ontario on October 15th.
I brought my video camera, and managed to record much more than I expected. McHale was subjected to rude and disgusting personal attacks by sympathizers of a gang of native criminals who stole an entire subdivision in Caledonia in support of a land claim. He was called a racist; an anti-feminist; a white supremacist; a disease; a joke; Hitler; the list went on.
I didn’t know Gary McHale until I discovered his website several months back. I’ve now listened to him speak in public twice, and I’ve watched him interact privately with his supporters for hours at a time. I never once witnessed any statements from him or those around him that could even remotely be construed as racist. McHale simply believes – as do I – that all citizens should be treated equally under the law, and that they should settle their disputes in the courts, not with violence and intimidation.
After witnessing McHale being continually interrupted with boorish and vulgar comments by hecklers with a violent agenda I knew that I was seeing what I call in the movie, the “underbelly of a dangerous movement that now feels untouchable thanks to a police force that has abandoned its responsibility of providing law and order in favour of appeasement.”
McHale’s march is not to protest the validity of anyone’s claim to the Douglas Creek Estates, but to create awareness of the Two-Tier justice system being perpetrated by the Ontario Provincial Police and Ontario’s politicians due to their refusal to enforce the law against criminals who have, among other things: blockaded 2 main roads in the town after taking possession, by force, of an entire subdivision of homes; assaulted OPP officers and a U.S. ATF officer; terrorized local residents who live beside the land; swarmed an elderly couple who pulled into the wrong parking lot; assaulted a TV crew, and the list goes on. Gang sympathizers are also suspected in the burning of a bridge, and the destruction of a hydro substation that left Caledonia’s residents in the dark for several days.
All of these incidents and many more are described in detail on McHale’s website, but the site didn’t have an organized collection that would explain to ordinary citizens why they should participate – as outsiders – in a march for Caledonia. When I got home from Brantford after watching the obnoxious attacks on McHale’s character and views, I decided to turn my videotape into a movie that would address the most common question asked of McHale – why is an ‘outsider’ so concerned about what is happening in Caledonia?
If you’re a politician or an OPP officer in Caledonia, you’re not going to enjoy this film. If, however, you’re an average citizen wondering why you should get involved, you just might find your answer. MARCH FOR FREEDOM – I hope you like it! More importantly, I do hope you’ll join us in Caledonia on Sunday, October 15th at 1pm. Check out http://www.caledoniawakeupcall.com/ for details.
