From the equality of rights springs identity of our highest interests; you cannot subvert your neighbor's rights without striking a dangerous blow at your own. Carl Schurz

We are not in Canada anymore

One of the consequences of not having a full public accounting of the police violence during the G20 in Toronto is that we are guaranteed a repeat. That is just what is happening in Quebec right now,although you wouldn't know it from the corporate media (and yes that includes the CBC). Thankfully we live in a digital age where we can bypass them and get the real story. Thanks to chronic insomnia I was fortunate to stumble onto Alerte Rouge a video montage of the police violence directed towards our children. The footage of the elderly gentleman at the end is worth seeing all on it's own.

The unprovoked violence this video shows seems foreign to my notion of Canada,I no longer recognise the place. Could it be true,we are no longer in our Canada, but Stephen Harper's instead.

    This should be seen be every Canadian and, those beyond our borders.

    We MUST take our Canada back while we still can.
