YIKES, LOOKS LIKE REMEMBRANCE DAY PROTESTERS ARE FANS..WELL KINDA
This From the Protesters sent to the station after asking for an interview....
I can't remember the last time I've seen this much persistence for a media interview.
As much as I'd love to believe your conservative news program is fair and balanced, its reputation fails to meet those standards. Maybe with the exception of Jim Richards.
Here's all you need to know: I cannot and will not be silent in a ceremony used to glorify Canada's mission in Afghanistan, where many of my fellow Afghans were detained, tortured and killed because of the Canadian military. There is no honour in this. There is no respect in this. My freedom of speech was taken away as well. So much for "sacrifices".

I have no interest in being setup to allow more of this blatant racism.

assembled facts to fit their value of November the eleventh. Even if there was, what must be
remembered is that this Remembranceis about people in those uniforms Not about Military or
If anything needs to pointed out on Remembrance Day it is that this Conservative Government
has continually screwed over our Vets. Whether it is failing newer Afghan vets over benefits or kicking
vets living in poverty while they are down by not paying for their funeral. This Government has
Conservatives love the Military when they're in uniform but NOT when they're out. They kick em at
That is what was worthy of Protest on November 11th
While I am at it....
Shame on The Department of VeteranAffairs for this brutal behaviour. Shame on them for going
around for photo ops bragging about fixing up cenotaphs. They are supposed to be kept up and
no politician should expect praise for doing what we are supposed to do.
