Just days ago, in “McGuinty threatens CHTV – who the hell do you think you are?!?‘ I commented on how the McGuinty campaign office attempted to intimidate CHCH TV into not running a story critical of McGuinty with 3 different threats. CHCH is, however, not the only media outlet to receive such threats from the McGuinty campaign.
I got a call from AM640 in Toronto as I was on my way to our Brantford protest yesterday. The caller mentioned that he was aware of our efforts in trying to warn of the dangers of landclaim lawlessness, to which I suggested that it was long past time for mainstream media to expose the truth of things like the Ipperwash Inquiry cover-up. He then told me that when they try to cover such stories, they get calls from someone named Ben Chin.
At the time, I didn’t know who Ben Chin was, and I was unable to pull over to discuss it, so I offered to do anything I could to help him tell the stories of Ipperwash and Caledonia and said goodbye.
It wasn’t until later that I discovered that Ben Chin works for the McGuinty campaign office, the same guys who tried to intimidate CHCH into not running a story of a Brantford developer who confronted McGuinty in person about the attempt by the Six Nations Confederacy to extort money from him!
When we were preparing to go to Queen’s Park to present The Ipperwash Papers back in March, the QP Media Studio technician told me there was “unprecedented interest” in our presentation, so much so that he suggested that we bring as few guests as possible in order to make room for the media. There were only a few reporters in the room for our presentation, and none of them wrote a word about the explosive evidence we revealed. I always wondered why.
Let’s give McGuinty and his cronies a lesson in democracy
A reader of CaledoniaWakeUpCall.com wrote Gary McHale to suggest that anyone concerned with Liberal intimidation of the media should call McGuinty’s campaign office and demand an end to the intimidation and the firing of Ben Chin. He was even kind enough to provide their toll-free number: 1.800.268.7250 AND Chin’s cell phone number: 416.358.6291. I hope you’ll make good use of them, and please do let me know how you make out via the comment form below. Have fun!
