We invited John Tory to speak at the pre-election ‘Remember Us’ March in Caledonia on Oct 08/07. Unfortunately, he didn’t see it as a priority at the time, so people like Joe Gualtieri and Sixth Line’s ‘Dancer‘ were forced to stand alone on the hill at the Lions Hall without the benefit of his support.
Given Tory’s recent decision to aggressively join our fight to restore ‘One Law for All,” however, we thought we should support him by helping delegates to the Ontario PC convention understand the role that the Ipperwash Inquiry failures is playing in the victimization of Caledonia.
250 flyers distributed at convention
On Saturday, February 23/08 a Caledonia resident joined me in London at the convention to help distribute 250 flyers to delgates calling for an inquiry into landclaim lawlessness in Ontario.
While we were there we had a few minutes to speak to MPP Ernie Hardeman (Oxford) and some delegates – including one former OPP officer who told us to ‘keep up the good work.’
A version of this flyer was handed out during Michael Bryant’s visit on Nov 26/07.
Caledonia and landclaim lawlessness was top of mind at the convention
Delegates told us that out of 8 (I believe) symposia, 6 of them turned into discussions about Caledonia, and that Tory devoted about 6-7 minutes of his speech to the topic.
Tory and PCs have been kept informed about the Ipperwash cover-up
When we visited Queen’s Park on March 14/07 to release our Ipperwash Papers project, we left comprehensive press kits in Tory’s office for him, McGuinty and the leader of the NDP, Howard Hampton.
Tory and PCs have been informed about ‘Dancer’
I am looking forward to the day, hopefully in the near future, when John Tory rises in the Legislature on behalf of Dancer and holds Premier McGuinty accountable for the failures of his Ipperwash Inquiry, failures that are victimizing children and putting Ontario on the road to anarchy.
That day can’t come too soon for me.
