IMPORTANT VIDEO UPDATE: 1305 EST, Jan 25/07. See story below for details.
As of 1025 EST Jan 12/07: WordPress.com listed “Courage in Caledonia has a name: Chris Syrie” in the #8 spot on their list of ‘Top Posts‘ for today in the English language category. There are over 587,000 blogs on the WordPress system. Rankings can change at any time.
Also, as of 1025 EST today, WordPress.com had ranked Voice of Canada as #34 in their list of the most popular English ‘Top Blogs’ in their ‘Blogs of the Day‘ feature. Blogs are ranked according to a special formula and rankings can change at any time.
The words, ‘excited, proud and hopeful’ do not even begin to describe how pleased I am to tell you that courage in Caledonia has a name, and it is ‘Chris Syrie.’
VoiceofCanada and CaledoniaWakeUpCall.com have each obtained a DVD containing raw footage of the entire Chris Syrie incident from start to finish. Today (Jan 25/07) CaledoniaWakeupCall.com has released a shorter, edited version from the footage that shows precisely how Two Tier Justice is practiced by the OPP.
Watch as a native thug goes onto Chris Syrie’s land, rips the flag out, throws it on the ground, confronts Chris toe-to-toe, and then stands around as the police make no effort to arrest or even identify him! Eventually, he (and his buddies – not shown in edited version) leave! Now, the OPP say they can’t identify him.
It’s one thing to hear the stories from the people who have experienced Two Tier Justice and it’s another to experience it yourself or to watch it unfold in living colour as it does in the latest Chris Syrie video.
As you will see below, at the time I originally wrote this article I believed that something unusual was happening with respect to the actions of the OPP officers. After seeing the complete video of the incident I now understand that – despite facing away from the residents for the first time – they were following orders as part of a systemic, race-based policing doctrine designed to allow native suspects and criminals to escape from the law.
After watching this video and reading, “OPP & OPPA vs. Supreme Court of Canada and the Charter of Rights & Freedoms“, you’ll understand why the OPP and OPPA are so desperately trying to destroy our credibility and our reputations! There’s only one problem with their plan – the truth eventually rises to the surface.
2. This thug then confronted Syrie toe-to-toe in a scene that immediately brought to mind the famous photo of the soldier – Warrior faceoff in Oka, Quebec. I had shivers running up and down my spine as I watched.
3. The OPP arrived and – wonder of wonders – actually turned to face the natives to prevent them from entering Mr. Syrie’s property. I contacted Gary McHale for a reaction; according to him this is the first time since April 2006 that the OPP have faced the natives to protect residents.
Regular readers will know that I have been highly critical of the OPP officers in Caledonia because I believe that all of them must be personally accountable for their actions. Today, however, I must give credit where it is due. I don’t know why these officers suddenly decided to face the real criminals, but I want them to know that I welcome and appreciate it. We are, hopefully, seeing the beginning of the end for politically-correct policing in Ontario.
After the incident, Mr. Syrie told CHTV that he was terrified, but he wanted to send a “wakeup call to the government” that he wasn’t “going to stand idle any longer.” He also said that he had a lot of native friends and clients, and that his business supports native activities on the reserve. His brother is currently serving with the Canadian military.
Chris Syrie vs. Julian Fantino
I can’t help but be struck by the contrast between Chris Syrie and the subject of my previous post – Julian Fantino. Chris Syrie stands up for himself, for his property and for Canada while Julian Fantino slanders Gary McHale publicly and tries to foist a spurious – I just want to do my job. It’s the outside ‘mischief makers’ that are the problem – PR stinkbomb on a private Rotary club audience that wasn’t buying his lame excuses. [low speed click here.]
So, Commissioner Fantino, is Chris Syrie from Caledonia trying to ‘spew hate’ and ‘make mischief’ and ‘provoke violence?’ I’m looking forward to seeing how your PR department spins this one. I wonder if they’ll have a different perspective now that open resistance to the lawlessness in Caledonia is coming from ‘insiders?’
That tiny bit of light you see at the end of the tunnel is NOT a train coming!
On Friday, December 22/06, MPP Toby Barrett advised me that, during Question Period in the Ontario Legislature that day, John Tory had quoted a Toronto Star editorial dated Dec 21/06 (originally published by the St. Catharines Standard on Dec 19/06) which said, in part,
“The people of Caledonia – and Six Nations for that matter – have every right to expect to live their daily lives without fear of vandalism, assault or worse. The rule of law is paramount in Canada’s society and must be upheld. “
One of the first people I called was a friend in Ipperwash. I told her that she should remember December 21st because it was the day that the war against politically-correct policing in Ontario was actually won – we just didn’t know the date when the battles would end.
Today, our victory got a whole lot closer thanks to Chris Syrie. I predict that his quiet, dignified courage and determination will unite Caledonians against the evil that is Two Tier Justice, and hasten the day when all citizens in Ontario will be truly equal before the law.
Thank you Chris Syrie! I’m sure all of Caledonia and every other Canadian who values justice and democracy join with me in wishing that you and your family will be safe tonight.
P.S. Not sure if you realize this, Chris, but you have another brother you didn’t know about. That’s because your brother is a Canadian soldier; I was one. Any time, any place – if you or your family need my help I will come. I promise. Email me at email@example.com and I will send you my phone number.
UPDATE 1303 EST Jan 12/07: On January 11/07 CHTV provided another take on the Chris Syrie incident [low speed click here] that includes a pathetic clip of Haldimand Mayor Marie Trainer complaining about how the ‘negotiatons’ are stalled because of citizens who want to raise flags. Her solution – apparently – is to negotiate between the parties to erect the flags. See my new post, “Confusion in Caledonia has a name: Marie Trainer.”
