Yes I think terrified is the word that best suits Mayor Nenshi and  Calgary City council right now. For weeks, now a small collection of squatters has been displacing legitimate park use in Calgary Olympic Plaza and have done an estimated $40,000 in damage to the park so far. Our city has enabled the squatters with the provision of portable toilets yet the squatters still defecate right next to their own tents as pictured below. Even dogs generally try to keep their eliminations away from their sleeping spots. This is unfortunately typical of the class and respect shown by these baseless squatters towards the people of Calgary.


I do apologize for the grotesque picture above but it has to be driven home what these people are doing to our public property and the general respect that they have for us all. These things will only get worse as we continue to appease these people.

Last Sunday I definitively proved that Nenshi’s assertions that bylaw enforcement and the physical removal of people from our park based on bylaw infractions were untrue when I was charged with a bylaw infraction and removed for doing just what the “occupy” squatters are doing (aside from the feces thing).

Yesterday Calgary City council went behind closed doors for hours trying to figure out how to get the squatters from our park. Having lost their dodge based on charter issues and bylaw enforcement, council was in a spot. Our emboldened squatters took advantage of this time to hold protests right inside council chambers as pictured below. Still council was too cowardly to have this handful of rabble removed from their very chambers.


When it was assured that the occupiers were finished in council chambers, our city council came back from their closed door meeting in dealing with occupiers.

With much fanfare and many fluffy statements, it was determined that city council had chosen to implement a plan to consider issuing warnings that may lead to enforcement of city bylaws at an indeterminate date.

The lack of leadership from our elected city officials has been appalling on this issue. The “occupiers” continue to push the envelope and even took over council chambers while council cowered in an incamera meeting. Maybe the next step will be defecation within council chambers. The “occupiers” appear to be determined to find out just what the limit is and our city council is determined to do nothing about it.

The occupation in Calgary’s park is an unsanitary and unsightly embarrasment. The behaviour of Mayor Nenshi and the yellow council has been an embarassment as well.

There will be a demonstration at noon at city hall tomorrow demanding the equal application of bylaws in Calgary. It took half an hour for the city of Calgary to bring the full force of the law against me on a bylaw infraction yet in almost a month the city is too cowardly to ticket a single tenter. I will be at the demonstration tomorrow and I encourage others to pop by. I expect council members will remain consistent in their cowardice and will remain hidden for the demonstration. 😉

Go face your music coward.

The NDP and Liberals celebrated what they may consider to be a moral victory by passing a motion for Canada to give asylum to American military deserters the other day. Thankfully, that motion is non-binding fluff and will by all appearances be ignored by the government.

Canada is in need of quality immigrants. We have people waiting and applying all over the world to try and set roots in Canada in order to work hard and better themselves. We need not displace any of these people by taking American deserters under our wing.

Corey Glass is the latest poster boy for the left to raise up on this issue. They are trying to paint this man as a “conscientious objector”. Cory Glass is not a conscientious objector. Glass is not in Canada because he has moral or religious grounds keeping him from taking part in the military. If that were the case, the fellow never would have joined the military in the first place.

Some people are trying to compare the current situation with the situation during the Vietnam war. There is a world of difference between the Iraq war and the Vietnam war; that difference is conscription. Every American soldier currently serving in Iraq right now joined the military voluntarily!

 Corey Glass joined the military in 2002. This was after 911 and when the military was becoming rather active overseas. Was it really so far beyond this coward’s imagination that he may be sent to a war zone? Many of these deserters foolishly joined the military seeking cheap education upgrading. These people seem to have overlooked the reason why the government is willing to subsidize their training and even pay them to get it. Military service comes with obligations to your country as well as benefits.

 With all participation in the Iraq war being done by members who joined the military voluntarily, it is rather easy to see how one could avoid going over there. If you want to avoid war zones, don’t join the damned army.

 I have never felt compelled to being under the control of the government and sent to whatever dangerous region that they my choose to, thus I have not joined the armed forces at any point of my life. That could change with some catastrophic and unforseen incident in the future, but for now I have managed to stay clear of army life.

 Corey Glass and others like him are not heros. They are not resisters. They are cowards and deserters and we do not need them sullying our nation. Send them back to face the consequences of their actions. They will not be shot upon arrival in the USA. They will be discharged or serve time in prison for their cowardice. This is not cruel and unusual, this is the price that these cowards must pay for breaching the contract that they signed with their own nation.
