Don Cherry Poppy Rant Emotions or malice


Don Cherry was sacked for his job at Sportsnet for a rant that and the politically correct social avengers. They quickly grasped on the second part his poppy rant, dismissing the first part of Cherrys’ rant to quote. “You know, I was talking to a veteran. I said, ‘I’m not going to run the poppy thing anymore because what’s the sense? I live in Mississauga; nobody wears — very few people wear a poppy. Downtown Toronto, forget it! Downtown Toronto, nobody wears a poppy.”- Don Cherry It is not only in Toronto that a percentage of people are not wearing poppies. What got him into trouble with PC by dismissing the first part they were able to put the spin on the second part meaning immigrants, yet to mention of immigrants was ever said.

“You people love — that come here, whatever it is — you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey,” Cherry said. “At least you could pay a couple of bucks for a poppy. These guys paid for your way of life, the life you enjoy in Canada. These guys paid the highest price.” Had Don Cherry used our instead of your, he might have avoided getting canned from Sportsnet.

What people don’t realize is that Don Cherry is probably a few that WWII occurred during his lifetime. Unlike his younger peers who only know of World War II through their history books, Cherry remembers the atrocities and sacrifices that were made because he lived it.

The Cherry case is not the only example of the chill effect. New Brunswick’s former Chief Medical Officer given the boot when she was nearing completion of her report against the use of glyphosate. Several years later, Rod Cumberland was turfed from his professorship at the Maritime College of forestry the now-former Executive Director Gerald Redmond of the college was terminated from his position for supporting Cumberland’s anti glyphosate position.

So what Messages are these giving people? Blogger-Journalist Charles Leblanc, for almost 15 years, went to hell and back because he video recorded the Fredericton City Police betting the hell out of a drunk in front of the former Sweatewaters bar.

In using Lebance as an example, they through him jail, and while there, they cut off his medications. That didn’t shut Leblanc up, so then they tried to nail him with Defamation, to get access to his internet records the Fredericton Police lied to his internet provider, alleging that he was exploiting children for sexual purposes. That failed, so they tried to embarrass him by having to police in plain clothes from the Edmunston Police Force.

During the Occupy Fredericton, people would agree with Occupy’s message. Still, the two typical response were “We agree with you but can’t say anything or will lose my job” or “We agree with you but say anything because in my keep me from getting a job.”
The Cherry, Dr. Cleary, Rod Cumberland Gerald Redmon and Charles Leblanc, they become examples that if you don’t follow the status quo, there will be consequences.

When you combined his first statement and the second statement that reinforces the theory that he was responding emotionally, not rationally, and he opened the doors for attack and gave Sportsnet “la raison d’etre.” They killed two birds with one stone; first, they got rid of the old man because of his age (workaround ageism). The second reason the most dangerous of the “The chill effect,” which is the inhibition or discouragement of the legitimate exercise of natural and legal rights fear of the consequences.”

Charles Leblanc In RoShamBo

Commentary by André Faust

Old news never seems to die when it comes to Charles LeBlanc who just recently launched a new battery of complaints against the Edmunston and the Fredericton city police in regards to the snatch and grab Gestapo style of street arrest which was common in the former state of Russia.

The arrest took place on King Street near the legislature where Charles is a frequent visitor and where he unleashed the Leblanc signature style of journalism against those poor unsuspecting MLA’s who dare to venture out from the safe confines of the legislative building.

The strategic attack against LeBlanc was executed by two Neanderthal class of officers who’s combined size outweighed LeBlanc by 3 to 1 attempted to try to yank him off the street and taken him in for questioning about his unique online style of blog reporting.

During the course of the arrest, one of the arresting officers told him that they were investigating him for some posts that he placed on his blog some two years ago, where they alleged that Charles LeBlanc posted some socially non-complementary adjectives against a couple of Fredericton’s finest.

Considering the time that has passed This recent arrest reinforces the public opinion that there is a vendetta against Leblanc, they failed with the charge of criminal libel 301, so they are trying a different angle to try to get a prosecution by using 300 instead of 301. The difference between 301 and 300 is under 301 you can be still charged with libel, even if the statements you said were true, and it was for this reason that 301 was found to be unconstitutional. So, removing that difference they are basically describing the same offence. When they seized all of his computer equipment, computer hard drive modem and etc. was not really needed because all of the evidence they need was already posted on his blog even then-acting Police Chief Leanne Fitch admitted that this might have been a little overkill and that there is room for improvement to narrow a search to the specific issue when it comes to computer search warrants. in a later interview, Bernard Richards is of the opinion that the seizure was indicative that they were trying to find something worse to pin on him. Because they just don’t like him. (insert Video) in the report itself, Richards says “This egregious error gives credence to those who see this as part of the investigation as an attempt to find something more serious to be used against Mr Leblanc (Ricard, 2011)

Given the tumultuous relationship between Charles Leblanc and The Fredericton City police is this latest a retaliatory response to Charles Leblanc Civil suit against the City and the FTP for refereeing to him as one who sexually exploits children when they made their request to the internet Service provider for his personal information. Or is as the following video depicts a simple case of Roshambo.

Fredericton City Police Beating a Dead Horse With the Arrest Of Charles Leblanc

By André Faust

Five years has passed since the Crown withdrew the charge of defamatory libel after the Fredericton City Police were heavily criticized by the legal academic community and the Canadian Civil Liberties Association.

Following the withdrawal of the charge. the City of Fredericton Commissioned Bernard Richards  to assess the situation with the  Fredericton city police.  The result of his findings was that he made seven recommendations.   these were only recommendations and  the police were not bound to implement those recommendations.

The Fredericton Police Force by voluntarily accepting those recommendations appeared to be a progressive force and that they were opened to improving the quality of the policing in the city of Fredericton

However, when they charged Charles with assault, which stemmed from  a minor disagreement with Busker Andrew Spencer, they took this incident as an opportunity to try to have Charles Convicted.  That endeavour failed when provincial court judge Julian Dickson exonerated Charles by rendering a verdict of not guilty of assault.

Once again they are trying to have Charles prosecuted on a charge of defamatory Libel which was resolved five years ago.

Isn’t it about time that Fredericton City Police stops beating a dead horse and go back to do the things that they do best; to serve and to protect.
