Gayle and Brian Hagan are longtime Caledonia residents who have been strong supporters of the struggle to oppose Julian Fantino’s racial policing practices in their town.

Brian was a presenter at the Dec 04/10 ‘Illegal Smokeshacks’ news conference at Queens Park – after non-natives and police were assaulted by native smokeshack supporters on Dec 01/07, and Julian Fantino had issued a press release falsely blaming them for the violence before the investigation had even begun.

Although the OPP refused to make a single arrest for the numerous assaults against non-natives and police that sent two people to hospital, Brian and Gayle’s son Kyle was arrested as he was quietly drinking coffee on the already blocked road. His arrest was the only one of the day and it was made by the same officer who earlier refused to arrest the native smokeshack supporter who had assaulted CAF co-founder Mark Vandermaas.

Brian and Gayle Hagan are asking for your help to support justice for Caledonia

Brian and Gayle have put out an appeal to their friends for help distributing our anti-Fantino brochures in Vaughan, and wanted to share it with all those who might care enough to help them and us reach out to the voters there:

=========================

Hi everybody,

Last Sunday was very successful in Vaughn.Despite rainy weather and short notice, we were able to pass out around 8000 Conservatives vs Fantino brochures on windshields in shopping malls in a couple of hours. It was easy to get to, reception was favorable, “Caledonia” seemed to be recognizable to most voters [no blank stares!].

People arrive for Conservatives Against Fantino protest and flyer delivery at Julian Fantino campaign HQ in Vaughan, Nov 14/10Many thanks to those who are participating in any way in this important campaign.Vaughan and the mighty Toronto media, including talk shows, are finally speaking out. The 3rd of 4 excerpts from C. Blatchford’s book appeared in today’s Globe and Mail.

  1. I wish I could help, but I live so far away… (The National Post also has a four-part series of Christie’s book).

    VoC REPLY: The NP excerpts are available on our HelplessByBlatchford.ca site on this page:

  2. The fact CPC parachutes a plonker like Fantino, carrying massive negative baggage, into a CPC nomination shows just how isolated Harper and party brass are from their membership and grassroots Canadians.

    VoC REPLY: Hi Bill, they’re bringing in people from outside the riding to work on Fantino’s campaign, I’m guessing because the local association people aren’t supporting them. After denying members in the riding to choose their own candidate, I’m not suprised.

    While we were there this weekend, on Sat a CBC radio journalist was denied access to Fantino (who was in the bldg at the time), so he interviewed Gary McHale instead. Yesterday, a Rogers TV reporter was told Fantino was “unavailable” so she filmed us, and interviewed me (w/Merlyn Kinrade by my side) talking about Fantino/McGuinty’s illegal peacekeeping mission on Cdn soi.

    Thanks Julian! If you won’t talk to the media, we sure will. Must run. Thks Bill, Mark
