UPDATE Oct 25/07: A feature page for the October 08/07 ‘Remember Us’ March has been set up. It includes videos of speeches and some terrific media coverage including an amazing editorial by Bill Jackson of The Regional criticizing Caledonia’s leaders – both political and business – for their conspicuous lack of participation.
15 year old ‘Dancer‘ moved some to tears with her speech. People mentioned just how much they learned from listening to her about how people on the Sixth Line were suffering without police protection.
We had a surprise guest speaker from the native community who asked to say a few words – none other than Clyde Powless! I thank him for showing the entire native community that they have nothing to fear from us. I’m glad he felt comfortable enough to come out to listen and to believe that we would allow him to speak.
Dumb and dumber in Caledonia
Many thanks also to the OPP for giving us lots of material for future lawsuits, police complaints and human rights complaints after they blocked our access to Stirling Street at the request of developer John Kragten in order to prevent us from placing a Canadian flag on a utility pole. Thanks, John, for your key role in helping the OPP violate our rights and those of your fellow Caledonians yet again.
Caledonia resident and CANACE co-founder, Merlyn Kinrade is behind me. He did a great job as Master of Ceremonies.
