The very first post at VoC was my response to CHML journalist, Jamie West, who described the March for Freedom as a “nonsensical non-event.” Today, one week and one day later, both the truth and the impact of the March are beginning to make themselves known:
I think it’s becoming clear that McHale was right all along, and that he has started us down the right road to a better justice system and a stronger democracy.
There is no doubt in my mind that, one day in the future, people will point to October 15, 2006 as the day that an entirely new civil rights movement was born that would eventually shake the halls of political power in Ontario.
P.S. I looked for Jamie West at the March for Freedom because I so very much wanted to ask him what he thought of McHale’s “non-event.”
