I’ve been keeping a collection of great things to say about Occupy Vancouver since it began- just waiting for the right reporter to share them with. This opportunity came last week when David P. Ball showed-up at the food tent. He was explaining to someone next to me that he was writing a “good news” story about our movement- so, I jumped on the opportunity and threw it all at him.
He took three of my favorites:
- “We come here to break mother’s golden rule: ‘Don’t talk to strangers'”
- “This place is a modern agora. We have people from every order of society coming here — and we talk.”
- “It’s okay to talk about politics in Vancouver again!”
Thank you David, of all the reporters I’ve met at OV, you are the only who is a true gentleman…
