THE ART OF PROTEST

Article content

The media has pushed the idea of ​​”aggressive” anti-Trudeau protesters. They are described as “an angry, indecently joking crowd.” So the problem is that they are not happy and they say things that are rude. Erin O’Toole confirms that this is unacceptable and not welcome. Let us focus on the double standard of what is considered an acceptable form of protest between left and right. What seems acceptable and even welcome (and certainly not stopped) is the year and a half of burning and looting small businesses and churches, threatening and intimidating diners to kneel and apologize for their collective guilt, spray-paint and tear down public statues of historic founders down, people in masks throwing concrete “milkshakes” at police officers and beating journalists (Andy Ngo) and setting up a camp with civilian bullying, police abusing tent dwellers in front of City Hall. The left routinely shuts down public-speaking events by blowing fog horns and pulling fire alarms, if not all-encompassing riots; just ask Jordan Peterson and Janice Fiamengo. Let the left run wild over our rights, property and physical security. Let the right refrain from frowning and uttering swear words.

(On all sides of the political spectrum, things have gone too far. Sure, shout, sing, even call names, if you will – but when it becomes physical and violent, it should not be tolerated)

GOVERNMENT INCENTIVE

I find it inconceivable that politicians and bureaucrats offer money and chances in a lottery for people to be vaccinated. How about rewarding all of us who made the decision to get it months ago. We did it, not just to protect ourselves, but to protect our families, friends, and co-workers. None of us wanted to be responsible for the death of a loved one because we refused to be vaccinated. Our governments made many mistakes in preparing and educating the public about the importance and need to protect against the COVID virus. They continue to do so, even with the rising evidence and the high death toll, especially among the unvaccinated. My wife and I have suffered a lot during lockdowns and home bookings imposed by the government. Our mental health has deteriorated and caused unimaginable damage to our psyche.

(For those who were vaccinated, we assume that the government considers your “reward” to have the ability to enjoy more freedoms than those who do not)

AIR SHOW MUST LIVE

I have to laugh at these people who complained about noise from planes during the Toronto air show. If the enemy knocked on the gates, it would be the same people who were screaming for help. God bless the Canadian Armed Forces and our allies. Long live the Canadian International Air Show!

Ian MacKenzie
Toronto

(Listen, listen)

ELECTION Pause

I fear that with a week left and Trudeau’s Liberals on a sinking ship of popularity, he will prorog the election, claiming that “it is for the safety of the Canadian public because of the increase in the COVID number.”

(He can not stop the freight train he started)
