First, let me make it clear- I like you, and enjoyed the moments we worked together on the Robocall rallies. You seem to be an intelligent, straightforward, and amicable person. So, I must say, I’m totally confused what you are doing these days with the rallies- you seem to have gone off the rails.

There were a couple of things that truly shocked me at the initial Robocall Rally in Toronto. First, was the inclusion of Sherif Azir, a man who was supposedly an organizer of the “Arab Spring” in Egypt (but who doesn’t appear to be very Egyptian to me).
The second shock was when Mathew Carroll of Leadnow.ca introduced Azir, first saying: “It kind of feels like spring, don’t you think? Maybe a little bit of a Canadian Spring?”

Sarah Buehler, organizer of the first Vancouver Robocall Rally
One of the first times I realized something was wrong with Occupy Vancouver was an incident I had with Sarah Buehler. I noticed during the planning meeting that Sarah was rather stand-offish when unknown people approached her (hardly the trait of a true occupier), but I had no idea how radical her views would be until a couple of days after we opened our camp.

It all began on Friday afternoon when officers from the Toronto Police Department came to Occupy Toronto’s new occupation at Osgoode Hall. They told the occupiers that they must leave their space, despite the fact we had explicit permission from the property manager to stay there.
In the aftermath, four occupiers were arrested- two of them ended up being hospitalized due to the unnecessary violence of the arresting officers…

The moment I heard about the Toronto Robocall rally I knew I must get involved. I was deeply disturbed to hear about the possibility that someone manipulated Canada’s last election, and I wanted to help effect change. But, this wasn’t my main motivation- there are bigger fish to fry…
