The Reformer's Firebrand

*-{The New Canadian Colonist's Advocate }-* A commentary of fiery reformist sentiment from the spirit of it's 210 year old Canadian ghost publisher patron. This will be a home to the new wave of anti-partisan advocacy for defeating Canada's second "family compact" and reinstallation of responsible governance in this 21st century new Canadian democratic dominion.

Calls for equal application of the Law called "outsider public mischief" By Cop Brass

I have a lengthy response to a rightfully outraged citizen who is being sytematically slandered by Ontraio's politicized police funtion. Mark Vandermaas from VOC takes exception to the political spin being put on his principled stand against "descretionary" law enforcement.


Indeed the best post and most important ethic enunciated in this debate. My admiration goes out to both Jim and you for articulating such an obvious moral truth which is being obscured under a deep blanket of official political spin.

The side which is running a deceitful political gambit on this issue (and that ain't your side Mark) is advocating a corrupt 3rd world police state solution of politically motivated selective law enforcement...this is being disguised with weasel words like "officer discretion" and “ keeping the peace at all costs”...sorry but “police discretion” and “policies” do not trump our personal charter guaranteed civil rights to express concern over unrequited criminal violations…regardless of contrarian hot air emitted from polce function talking heads...this is obvious to anyone with eyes and a brain that is detached from officialdom's propaganda control grid.

As you have pointed out Mark, one of the reoccurring themes used by these corrupt statists attempting to subvert your principled civil indignation to the displayed double standards in the rule of law, is to stigmatize you as "outsiders" and “trouble makers” and paint a negative connotation to this....of course, to any thinking reasoning Canadian, this weak pretext the police statists want us to swallow is pure bunkum. They expect us to swallow the perverse logic of righteous civil indignation to open civil injustice as being rightfully restricted ONLY to those effected...that anyone who is not a resident in the immediate locale where an ongoing crime is being committed should have no opinion and have no constitutional say in the matter...they are "outsiders".("Outside" the sphere of McGuinty’s double standard martial law zone?)

But this myopic and civilly irreprehensible argument ignores the fact that in a civilized constitutional democracy when one citizen's rights and reputation are openly violated by uncivil authority...we have all have been attacked by extension...because if it can happen to one person it can just as easily happen to us all....and if we allow a constitutional breech and civil injustice to stand unchallenged, a precedent has been set for further abuse of the rule of law by recusant authority and criminals alike.

All free Canadians are affected by authoritarian inequity committed on our fellow countrymen...in a more universal sense, all men are effected by injustice and lawlessness...it's called human empathy... an officially tolerated crime against one is a breech of justice to us all...this principle sent Canadians off to die on foreign shores defending oppressed peoples from criminal injustice…this Jim has so emotionally articulated.

Tyranny is defined as a state where there is no civil justice for the oppressed and where the law exists to protect the oppressor.

Caledonia is a microcosm of this definition...and it SHOULD trouble "outsiders"!!....if they have a modicum of civil ethos, empathy and civil self respect. The people of Caledonia are under constant threat by an ongoing criminal action which the police function continues to tolerate. The Ontario police function in Caledonia has demonstrated they will not make arrests of criminals of a certain race and ethnicity due to a political directive given them from Government which operates aside and apart from the constitutionally demanded process of the rule of law. This political directive over riding our constitution has left citizens of this town at the mercy of the tolerated lawlessness of a politically defined ethnic group. Section 15 of the charter is in tatters in Caledonia. This state of lawless intimidation has existed for over a year.

These besieged Caledonia citizens need help…they need help from all Canadians who value the uncorrupted rule of law…..because this COULD come to YOUR community if you do nothing….You are NOT an “outsider”…every Canadian who watches an ongoing crime which police refuse to resolve is a witness to a crime…you are involved…if you don not want to march in the cold for your fellow Canadian’s rights to be free from “discretionary” lawlessness…then write a letter to your MPP and MP and the PM….write a letter to an editor…do something…you are not an “outsider” you are a witness to a crime…a breech of your charter and this nation’s equitable rule of law!

Obviously the police state attitudes making the "official" public statements on this matter feel Mark and Gary’s civil responsibility and human empathy as "outsiders" should be criminalized...or at least publicly defamed….They are claiming a police monopoly on interpretation of the law and the constitution…they are replacing/ignoring the courts in their thought word and deeds.

When you get this attitude from the people who are charged with protecting our charter rights, you know our freedoms and democracy are in serious decay from "official" neglect.

Sorry for the length of this missive Mark but your post inspired me to get more people involved and politically active in restoring the rule of law in Caledonia-Canada…last time I looked Caledonia was not “outside” Ontario or Canada.

Well said! The on going battle in Caledonia is so sad. Both the provincial and federal governments have let the good people of Caledonia down. My granddaughter is 6th generation (3 grandparents) Canadian born, were would they like her to go home too? Her birth certificate reads
Canada and Canadian she is! Just like me and every other person born in this country,regardless of their race or religion. Our country, Canada must come first!

Thanks for commenting Mary. I am a 6th generation Canadian as well and my grand kids are 8th gen...guess what? We ARE home....and no amount of twisted revisionist aboriginal history or bigoted incivility from the fanatic Mohawk fringe will change that. ;-)

I ignore all the rabid hysterics, racist spew and delusional historic revisionism that emotes from empty headed race-baiters like this Horn woman and her ilk...because in the long run, fanaticism and confrontational inflammatory rhetoric does more to destroy the credibility of the Mohawk nation’s claims than it does to make headway in the realms of the law courts and claims courts. I figure the louder the vacuous calls of “racism” and “victimhood” become, the less credibility their originators have.

The courts/law deal only in fact...they can enforce only what they know to be true...I have a similar philosophy...I make decisions based only in what I know to be fact.

The fact of the matter is this is 2007 not 1812….this is Ontario not “Turtle Island” and we have a democratically elected government in Toronto which oversees a claims court system…not tribal woman landlords making enforceable legal judgements…we settle claims disputes in court and under the rule of law… and in this day and age claims courts enforce property claims based in concrete evidence...deeds filed, bills of sale etc….not Neolithic surreal fairy tails and sympathetic magic….beating drums, chanting and claiming ownership of this sovereign country is an exercise which ignores modern realities.

If there was validity to the Mohawk claim on DCE and other H-Tract lands, there should be an irrefutable historic record of legal filings showing the transfers and the deeding...the fact that this thing has gone a year and dragged on years before that tells me that the case is weak for the Mohawk claims...My suspicions are further validated by the fact that a large part of their "case" is made with violent acts and threats, and the endless stream of hear-say history and inflammatory racial victimhood rhetoric.

When these folks say they are seeking justice for past wrongs, I believe what they really mean is they are seeking what they believe to be "guilt entitlements" beyond written treaty. If they were subject to blind equitable justice many would be in jail for confidence crimes and criminal violence…so I don’t think what they want is “justice” per se as much as a hand out based in all the guilt they can create with their fraudulent victimhood myth spinning. I wish I could reclaim compensation for the “past injustice” that my family and creed suffered at the hands of our tormentors in ages past…but of course that would be ridiculous and ignores modern realities…the law can only make compensations between parties who can walk into a court for settlement…we cannot dig up 300 year dead to resolve their conflicts in a modern court…..although the aboriginal legal industry has made a lot of money attempting just this.

I await the outcome of these secret "negotiations" as I'm sure these will result in the Mohawks getting more than is due them from what they could prove in a claims court…and I’m sure the out of court settlement will leave the door open to future claims made in the same manner...at that point, as a Canadian and a taxpayer I will challenge the government to publicly present evidence that their concessions were based in concrete valid evidence of claim on the Mohawk side...if they can't, then this will be nothing more than a government paying off a political extortion shake down by a vocal and violent subculture.

IF the Mohawks can publicly prove what is owed them with irrefutable valid evidence acceptable to a court...I say settle with them and don't be stingy and issue a national apology.

But my suspicion is the evidence for claim is weak...and the tactic of violent intimidation and renegade siege of Caledonia was a political embarrassment/ distraction to cover the fact the claim is weak or frivolous.
