  1. I am a resident of Caledonia. I back onto the land that was stolen by Natives. I have been witness to, and part of many demonstrations against the OPP and Native criminal element. I have had several friends arrested for protesting against these ongoing, largest crimes in modern Canadian history. They dared carry Canadian Flags near the crime site. I am a second class citizen in my own country. The Charter does not apply to me. Our institutions who’s root of existence is to protect democracy have sided with the crimes I witness daily. These are: Town Council, OPP, Federal and Provincial MP’s, and most disheartening of all , The Media. Without a media that informs the public of this assault on basic freedoms and our institutions, the outcome is predictable. You are obviousely aware of the University of Ottawa’s censorship efforts of Ann Coulter. The chilling of open thought begins in schools. Sincerely, defeated citizen.

  2. To Mark: you forgot to acknowledge a simple but dangerous truth: kanata is a settler country; that is, European descendants on non-European land. Ignoring this premise erases any historic view of the land you are standing on; or in other words, you are failing to acknowledge or openly engage the context, namely the historic struggles that surround you. How is it possible that original-indigenous “Natives” – Mohawks – can steal land (from colonial occupiers?) that always belonged to their community? If you are sincere, learn the history of your place.

    Generally, the reason why people may not join your cause may be to simply step away from inciting hate, in both speech and action.
