Julian Fantino will soon get another chance to use his beloved term “interlopers”, only this time it won’t be Gary McHale, Mark Vandermaas, and myself he’s targeting. A convoy of Caledonia residents who have grown tired of being ignored by the Commissioner will be heading to Fantino’s neighborhood this Sunday March 2 to exercise their legal right to peaceful protest.
It will be a pleasure to join the residents of what Fantino wishes was a forgotten town in raising Canadian flags and presenting facts to the public and the media about the continued lawlessness in Caledonia under the leadership of Julian Fantino.
Regrettably for Mr. Fantino, his OPP will not be able to attend and interfere with this event as it does not fall within their jurisdiction.
Why all this trouble to raise a flag? Some may ask. As we have repeatedly pointed out to the media and the OPP, the supreme court ruling of Ramsden v. Peterborough gives us the charter right to hang a flag on any pole we want to, and as Julian personally came to town to deny us this right on January 20, 2007, met with the DCE occupiers that morning and refused to give us the same courtesy, we think the poles on his street are an excellent place to send a message to Mr. Fantino.
There is no better symbol than the Canadian flag to remind Mr. Fantino that we live in a country where the charter of rights and freedoms, and the rule of law trump his personal agenda of attacking our group.
Will Julian bring us some nice hot cocoa? I rather doubt it but we’ll find out very soon. See the official press release hereJeff Parkinson
