Fred Litwin on Harper, Caledonia, and Ramadan terror arrest apologies

UPDATE: RCMP denial of Ramadan terror arrest apology vs. Muslim Canadian Congress version

The last story posted on VoC before my Christmas break provided detailed information and commentary on the Canadian government’s decision to issue an apology to the organized crime group Mohawk Warriors for their inclusion in an anti-insurgent manual:  

 Since then, it has become known that the RCMP and Ottawa Police apologized to Muslim leaders shortly after arresting three terror suspects during Ramadan last August. Once that story broke early in the new year Prime Minister Harper issued a quick assertion that Canadian law was to be enforced every day of the year, but I hadn’t had time to comment on the obvious hypocrisy of that statement given his government’s complete non-interest in seeing the law enforced in Caledonia.

Fortunately, Fred Litwin, founder of the Free Thinking Film Society in Ottawa, editor of the GayAndRight blog, and contributing writer to The Propagandist, has saved me the trouble:  

[…] For years, the Ontario Provincial Police have not enforced the law against native occupiers – in fact, turning parts of Caledonia into Canada’s first no-go area. Where has Mr. Harper been during the blockades, the violence, the threats, etc for the last 4 years plus? To make matters worse, the Conservative chose Julian Fantino, who ran the OPP during this period, to run in the Vaughn by-election.  

So, is it really one law for all Canadians?  

Thank you, Mr. Litwin.
