With arrests already under his belt doing from protest gigs for Greenpeace, Tavis Ford truly came into his own during the Occupy Calgary protest where he cut a striking figure walking about with his almost trademark walking stick. Some thought that image depicted a man with wisdom. Most thought this image depicted one with a messiah complex taking part in a small group insanity situation.
From the Keystone pipeline, to Suncor operations to protesting zoning changes in empty lots within Calgary, Tavis Ford appears at them all and I expect we will continue to see him attending and likely getting arrested again in future protests of pretty much anything and everything.
Tavis is a bright and personable enough guy to chat with but his fixation on chronic protest is obsessive.
