Protest can’t be denied

Re: Spectators barred from Enbridge hearings in Victoria

Let me see if I have this straight, here. We send our F-18s and our warships to the Mediterranean to protect the people in Libya and enforce their right to demonstrate, but the hell with our right to demonstrate a pipeline or anything else right here at home? When did we become Communist China, North Korea or the Soviet Union? Last time I checked, our constitution and charter of rights included the right to demonstrate. Do you feel and hear that earthquake across our land? That rumble and tumble is over a million Canadians who fought against Germany, which we defeated in two world wars, twisting and turning in their graves cause the very rights they fought for are being subverted.

Since when are we locked out of meetings that can affect our lives and our environment? I am calling on people to come out in the masses on Jan. 5 and Jan. 7-11 at the Delta Ocean Pointe and protest anyway. Regardless of what side you’re on over the pipeline, we can at least all agree on our right to demonstrate.
