Try doing this with a bunch of your buddies... and see how long it takes the local SWAT team to knock your dick in the dirt.
-- DESERONTO -- Mohawk protesters, who said they had guns and wouldn't back down, began preparations for blockades of the main CN line and Highway 401 near this eastern Ontario town late Thursday, despite widespread calls that an aboriginal day of action be peaceful.Once again though, being aboriginal confers extra-legal status on these guys.
To no one's surprise, professional agitator and spokes-native Shawn Brant is front and centre...
Mr. Brant said he intended to lead blockades of one or both of the main traffic and rail corridors between Toronto and Montreal starting at midnight Thursday night, or before.This sociopath has apparently got some sort of Billy Jack looptape constantly running through his fevered brain.
He wouldn't disclose the actual sites, but confirmed that he and others were prepared to “meet force with force” if police got in their way.
“We've made no secret that we have guns within this camp,” he told The Canadian Press in an interview.
Mr. Brant says the time to educate Canadians through peaceful rallies has passed.By his own very public admission, Shawn Brant is screaming out that he is "armed and dangerous".
What more do police need to shut this asshole down?
UPDATE: OPP Commissioner Fantino responds
"We're certainly in a position where we want to demonstrate goodwill," he said. "We certainly do not want to become the cause of conflict.Boy, was I ever wrong about Fantino.
But having said all of that, we also have to be mindful of other people's rights and entitlements as well."
UPDATE2: CPR jumps in...
Is this worshipping at the altar of political correctness...
-- OTTAWA -- Trains across the country will grind to a halt today in a show of support for the Assembly of First Nations call for a national day of action.Or simply a shrewd business tactic?
In a show of solidarity, Canadian Pacific Railways has ordered all of its freight trains to stop for one minute at 2 p.m. ET.
