CANACE’s Director of Multimedia Production Jeff Parkinson recently put together a short film about our visit to OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino’s home on March 02/08 that eloquently expresses the message we sent that day to the Commissioner. It shows first, Doug Fleming and then, Merlyn Kinrade putting up the flags on hydro poles across the street from Fantino’s home, signifying that Canadians will not be intimidated into abandoning their rights, and that even the most powerful police officer in Ontario couldn’t stop us from exercising those rights even at his own home.
One of the best videos ever made during the struggle against race-based policing, and it’s only 1:45 minutes long! Jeff’s timing and choice of music will send chills down your spine. There’s a shot of me with Merlyn Kinrade clapping near the end as Doug’s flag goes up.
