On January 20, 2007 you, your friends, your co-workers, and your relatives need to be in Caledonia, Ontario at 1130 in the morning. Here’s why:
#1: Show Caledonians and the people of Ipperwash that you care about destroying the Two Tier Justice system they are forced to live with. Come and lend them your voice – they need and deserve your support.
#2: Defend our flag and the values it represents – the Ontario Provincial Police stand guard for violent criminals who put up the Warriors’ flags, yet arrest law-abiding citizens who want to put up a Canadian flag on the same pole.
The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that we have a constitutional right to put items on public utility poles, so it’s the OPP who are breaking the law, not us.
[That’s Voice of Canada on the left with the large Canadian flag a few minutes before my arrest. The flag is hung upside down as a distress signal in response to the attack by government and the OPP against our values of Rule of Law, Freedom of Expression, Equality Before the Law.]
#3: Show Ontario Premier McGuinty that you stand with the Toronto Star, the St. Catharines Standard, and MPP Ted Chudleigh (Halton) in demanding one set of laws for all citizens, and a return to the rule of law in Caledonia and Ipperwash.
#4: You don’t believe that any Canadian citizen should have to instruct his children that, in event of an emergency, they are to dial 911, wait for the operator to answer, but not to talk to the operator because the police will take their time coming, or might not come at all if they find out a native is involved. A Caledonia resident told me this following my release from jail on Dec 16/06.
#5: You don’t believe that any Canadian citizen should be asked the race of a home invasion perpetrator during a 911 call. Sad, but true story from Ipperwash!
#7: You don’t believe that the OPP should be able to hold an innocent man overnight even though they knew they weren’t going to charge him.
(See also, item #17 under HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED in VoC post, “Canadian flag ripped from my hands by OPP – VoC goes to jail! for more info about Gary McHale’s ‘political’ arrest & court appearance.”)
#9: You don’t believe that any Canadian citizen should have to say they don’t have any policing at all where they live. The poor woman shown in the last segment of this 2:02 minute CHTV video seems resigned to the reality of having no police protection. Is this the Canada you thought you lived in? No? Then, help us do something about it.
#10: You don’t think your government should be ‘negotiating’ with violent criminals who try to intimidate their opponents into silence using their supremacist ideology.
#11: Help stand vigil with my wife and Gary McHale’s wife after we get arrested – again.
#12: Good karma; after all, YOU might need people to come to your town one day to help you fight against Two Tier Justice. If the police and the government are going to allow violent criminals to seize deeded property in Caledonia, who says your property won’t be next?
#13: When history judges all of us by how we acted or failed to act on behalf of our fellow citizens you want to be proud to say that you stood up for Justice, Equality and the Rule of Law when it mattered most. It’s not always easy to do the right thing, but as yesterday’s events have shown, one honest man can change history.
I do very much hope that you will join us in Caledonia on January 20, 2007 at 1130 for the 3rd March for Freedom event. We’re not asking you to do anything to get arrested, but we are asking you to at least show up to support those of us who are prepared to risk our freedom so your kids can grow up in a province where all citizens are equal before the law.
If you do decide to come, make sure you bring a Canadian flag!
