Heather Martin puts all of the pieces together brilliantly in this article- documenting her experiences in Saskatchewan watching the NDP, Green Party, Sierra Club and Polaris Institute co-opting movements in her province. To add to her story, Toronto activistocrat Taylor Flook was with Jeh Custera when they invaded Parliament. The connection she makes with Kevin Annett’s family’s Western Canada Water and the Council of Canadian’s protests answers a lot of questions I’ve been pondering.
I don’t normally re-blog people’s articles- but, this one is a must read!
TRUTH... IN A NUTSHELL

“This is an age of discouraged revolutionaries” – Alex Comfort (from Authority and Delinquency in the Modern State, 1950)
I have become, as Alex Comfort states, a discouraged revolutionary. This is as a result of my discovery that the grass-roots movements I had put my hopes into have been co-opted by political parties and NGO’s alike. The revolution, and I propose, the social evolution of humanity, has been co-opted by special interest groups masquerading as “hope and change”…”love and light”… all the while working towards chaos, darkness and oppression. I have become discouraged, because like most people involved in grass-roots movements I have a heart that hopes for a better world, but have eyes that have seen forces working towards their own endpoints, using US to do it.
In the past couple of years I’ve participated in rallies such as those protesting Bill C-38…

Blocking traffic on the Cambie St Bridge today…
There’s a march going on right now in Vancouver. Just a few minutes ago VANDU was blocking traffic on the Cambie Street Bridge, carrying a banner saying ‘Homes Not Jails’…
Anthony James Hall in his funky sport jacket- The Don Cherry of the truther set
One of the people connected to the Occupy movement who confuses me more than others is Anthony James Hall– a professor of Globalization Studies at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta. Besides dressing like the Don Cherry of the truther movement, he is also a man who loves to throw hate at people on Occupy Facebook pages.
He confuses me because, being someone who relentlessly pursues the truth, I usually get along quite well with truthers. Of course, I base this on the assumption that Professor Hall is actually seeking truth…

Last week I had the (dis)honour of having one of my articles republished by one of the most radical & racist websites I’ve run across. It warmed my heart to see how they labelled me as ‘a somewhat infamous White participant in the #Occupy Movement in Kanada’. That said, they should have done their research, I quit the Occupy movement a couple of months ago– tired of the focus on political correctness over making change…

Casseroles marchers gathering at Dufferin Grove Park
Today was the first Casseroles march in Toronto. It began only a few blocks down the road from my house, at Dufferin Grove Park- so, despite being a little under the weather, I decided to make the march down there to take a look…
I joined the Marxism mailing list a few months ago after I found out how Macdonald Stainsby is quite active on there- it was one of my first clues about the type of people we are dealing with here. It is an interesting group where you’ll find a lot of hard-core unionists like Sid Shniad.
Anyhow, thought y’all may enjoy this clipping where one of their members decided to share some of Trotsky’s ‘wisdom’ with us…

Dear Mr Haines,
I was walking home today when I saw a couple of highly disturbing billboards in front of my local supermarket. Some people may see them as witty- that said, many people will not…
INSITE/ONSITE Clinic In Vancouver
I’ll start this article with a disclosure. First, I am 110% behind the concept of supervised injections sights. Having lived in London & Amsterdam where they have been successfully doing this for years, I can see the benefits of the concept. That said, after a personal experience, I am far from impressed with INSITE- and services in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side (DTES) are a comparatively a gong show…

Artist Maggie Sutherland has released a controversial new painting of our fearless Prime Minister. I wonder what the dog is thinking?
Now without the dot!
You may remember I wrote about dumping Rogers a while ago. Well, they did fix my problem after a lot of pain- that said, their cost is still out of this world. So, I took the jump and finally dumped them for Wind!
Come on Occupiers! Let’s quit talking about identity and safe-space politics and start talking about what founded our movement! Once we fix the government and the bankers, the rest will come with it…
