“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

Liberals are stuck, and would rather sacrifice the economy and the common citizen, while they "virtue signal" the rest of the population stating how "important" it is to talk

Blockade in Toronto this morning (Twitter)

As people continue to protest, blockade, and shut down access to both public and private property, I thought I would provide a few thoughts from now retired (after 25 years of service) RCMP officer Kurt Peats ...

What the protestors are doing is illegal - full stop.

Consider however, that all chiefs of police are political appointments (either municipal, provincial or federal).  Further, all RCMP senior officers serve at the pleasure of the federal government. Their next promotion depends on the government.

The "rule of law" only applies to some people,
some of the time, and if you support the cause,
well then you'll get a pass.

That is why no police will take action as they do not want to upset their political masters. The Feds in turn can blame the police for not taking action and state ...  "Let's let the police do their's their call." As a result, the federal government walks away unscathed as the general population mostly believes the government.

The Liberals support base has many First Nations peoples, and environmentalists, and it would be fair to believe they do not want to upset the base, and chase them over to the Greens.

The Liberals are stuck, and would rather sacrifice the economy and the common citizen, while they "virtue signal" the rest of the population stating how "important" it is to talk ... and to respect each other... and to understand how we got here.... and whatever other platitude they want to throw in.

No one is fooled ... and everyone knows the game ... leaving those not in government, or protesting, rightly upset that a handful of people have been able to hold the rest of the country hostage because of Liberal idealization.

And the lesson learned for the protesters?  They can do want they want, and there will be little to no consequences.

The "rule of law" only applies to some people, some of the time, and if you support the cause, well then, you'll get a pass.

Kurt Peats retired from the RCMP in 2011 after serving 25 years with the Force.  He and his wife make their home in Dawson Creek. In 2013 he ran as a BC Conservative candidate in Peace River South.

THE SIDEWINDER -- Just quit your constant damned whining and do something positive about it

  Living in a democracy is a wonderful thing, but it comes with responsibilities such as voting and being involved. When the dust settled on Saturdays (October 24 th ) BC election, less than two thirds of the eligible voters * took the time to vote - but the loudest bitchers will probably be among the more than one third of voters who sat on their asses and complained about how all politicians are crooks, etc. How many of you constant whiners have ever done anything close to becoming involved; or do you just like sniveling to hear your own voice? Are you one the arseholes who likes to take advantage of everything our democracy has to offer, without ever contributing anything? And I don't want to listen to your crap about paying taxes, blah, blah, blah. There's more to making democracy work than simply voting and then sitting back and let others carry the ball for you. Too many people seem unwilling to get involved - and follow-up - to make sure elected po

AARON GUNN -- He is, at his core, an ideologue, meaning the facts of any particular issue don’t actually matter

Ben Isitt - City Councillor and Regional Director Victoria City Council and its resident-genius Ben Isitt is back with another dumb idea. Introducing a motion to ban the horse-drawn carriages that have coloured Victoria’s downtown streets for decades, calling them “an outdated mode of transportation”. Are you serious?   No one is actually commuting by horse and carriage. They are here for tourists and residents alike to interact with world-class animals and discover the magic and history of our provincial capital. It’s part of what gives Victoria its charm. And the truth is these horses are treated better than anywhere else in the world. They probably live better lives than many British Columbians.   And talk to anyone who works with these horses and they’ll all tell you the exact same thing: this is what the horses love to do. This is what they were bred for and trained for. This is what gives their lives purpose and meaning. But maybe we shouldn’t be su


I have just struggled through Cheryl Ashlie's column ( MacDuff’s Call: A political novice with a sizeable ego ), in the Sept. 22 edition of The Maple Ridge News. To say the least, Ashlie's comments are naive and show just how totally out of touch she has become with political reality. Ashlie lauds the decision of Darryl Plecas to accept John Horgan's invitation to become the Speaker of the House, a move described by almost everyone else as self-serving and a betrayal of the trust of the constituents who voted for him. Ashlie claims Plecas' turncoat move will help provide good governance but in making this claim, she fails to explain how he will achieve this lofty goal.
