“The Law is the Law”

by matttbastard

Apparently the leader of Ontario’s Opposition has rejected Chief Fontaine’s invitation to join frustrated First Nations peoples in solidarity. In a speech today at a meeting of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police, purportedly ‘moderate‘ Ontario Progressive Conservative leader John Tory showed his true Blue roots. Alluding to the potential of violence and blockades at National Day of Action protests this upcoming Friday, Tory crassly pandered to the law and order vote while exploiting post-Caledonia anti-First Nations sentiment (again).

Nice to see some things haven’t changed after the revolution.
